Zhou Mingyu was fuming in anger. She was gritting her teeth so hard in hatred that she almost broke them. She couldn't let Xin Mei enjoy all those praises. So with head held high, she walked towards Xin Mei.
"Xin Mei, what type of admirer do you have? He has sent you the flowers without thinking about anything. Now, where will we shoot? Your flowers have covered the sets, who will clean it up?"
Zhou Mingyu started to scold Xin Mei like a nagging mother. She was complaining, waiting for the others to complain the same. She wanted the director to scold Xin Mei for having such a gift which could disturb the shooting.
"Zhou Mingyu, you don't need to worry about my gift. I will think about what I have to do with it." Xin Mei glared at Zhou Mingyu before turning her attention to the delivery boy.
"Can't I decline to take the delivery? Leaving it all here will affect my work."
"Unfortunately no, we have promised our customer that we would only leave after delivering the flowers to you. He is ready to pay us double if you accept these flowers." With pleading eyes, the delivery boy looked at her.
Beside her, the prop manager also hastily added, "Xin Mei accept it, accept it. It just so happens that we need the flowers for the first night scene of Chunhua and Emperor Kai. Thanks to you, now I will not need to worry about the flowers. Moreover, the flowers are more than our need. We can make the scene more royal."
Prop manager looked at the roses with bright eyes. They needed flowers for the wedding night scene of Chunhua and emperor Kai. Prop manager was going to send his assistants to collect the flowers when roses of Xin Mei arrived.
Hearing prop manager and delivery boy, Xin Mei could only sigh before accepting the roses. Once the delivery boy left, Xin Mei slumped down on the chair.
"Xin Mei, your admirer must be crazy to send you so many flowers on the first day." Fang Lin grinned and looked at the roses.
When director Zhang returned from his lunch break, he was already updated about the roses. Xin Mei walked towards him and apologized immediately, "I am sorry director Zhang. I didn't mean to trouble the crew…"
Director Zhang didn't mind the flowers at all. He waved his hand in front of Xin Mei. "It is no big deal. It's common for a beautiful lady like you to have a lot of admirers. So it's alright. Besides, we are going to use the flowers after all."
Soon their lunch break was over, everyone returned for their scenes. Zhou Mingyu could only get jealous and angry in her heart.
That night, when Xin Mei returned home, she was feeling very tired. After eating her dinner, she didn't wait for her parents before making her way towards her room.
She had a long refreshing shower before she slumped down on the bed.
She powered on her mobile and started to scroll through her social media accounts. Her eyes went wide when she saw her followers which were negligible the last day, but now she had crossed 500K followers. Her mobile hanged for a second because of the notifications.
Her posts also had so many likes, comments and shares. Her message box was also full of a lot of messages. It was like she turned famous within a day and why not?
In the morning, heritage Entertainment had officially announced about the Revenge. A page was created for revenge on which information about the cast and some off-screen photos were uploaded. It had a separate session for Xin Mei.
Not only that, many media houses had reported about the press conference from the city B which brought Xin Mei into highlights.
Xin Mei looked at one of her photo from the amusement park. Earlier, that photo hardly had 100 likes but now it crossed 10,000 likes. There were a lot of mixed comments on her photo, some comments were of praises, some were disgusting comments and some were comments of bullies.
"Oh my god, you are so beautiful. Where were you hiding from all those years? The film industry is lucky to have a beauty like you."
"You are very sexy. I will like to see what you are hiding beyond your dress."
"She isn't beautiful. My goddess Zhou is more beautiful and godly than her."
Xin Mei shook her head before blocking the people who were her haters or were being jerk to her in message or comment box.
After scrutinizing her social media accounts, Xin Mei opened the official page of Revenge. She scrolled through all the posts. Post about the announcement of Zhou Mingyu as the main lead had a lot of comments from her fans. Her comment box was full of praises.
Where on the post about Xin Mei, she had some praises but most of them were hateful comments. People had commented hateful comment about anything and everything about her.
Xin Mei sighed and rolled her eyes. Zhou Mingyu could never change. She had her force of loyal to degrade her competitors. Zhou Mingyu only had to move them and they wouldn't lag behind in degrading the other person.
Xin Mei had seen sufferance of many female stars because of the force of loyal fans of Zhou Mingyu.
Xin Mei was looking at the page when one more post was updated on the page. It was a photo of three thousand roses. A caption was also written with the photo…
'Our new actress Xin Mei is so lucky. She got an admirer. He sent her three thousand imported flowers on the very first day.'
Xin Mei with her own eyes watched the increase of likes and comments on the post. Lot of them were positive comments which also included comments from the cast and crew. There were also some comments from the loyal fans of Zhou Mingyu who promised to deliver a gift for Zhou Mingyu the very next day.
Xin Mei had closed the Revenge page and the same moment her mobile rang with a call from Gu Nan. Xin Mei picked up the call and was immediately faced by the loud and excitement filled voice of Gu Nan.
"Girl! Tell me the name of this admirer who has sent you so many flowers. Gosh, I am feeling so jealous of you at this very moment."
"So you have already seen the post."
"Hmm, hmm. As a journalist and as your friend, I must get updated with the official page of revenge. I can't skip any interesting gossip, right?"
"Hmm," Xin Mei sighed without any interest. "If you have seen the post then you must be aware of the negative comments on my post."
"You are worried about that. I am sure that it is the doing of Zhou Mingyu," Gu Nan sneered. "That bi*ch never knew ABCD of acting. She only knew such silly tricks to de-motivate her co-stars. You don't need to worry Meimei. I have talked with Yeye and he will do something. Besides, once the show about you goes on-air, everyone will become aware of you. You wait and see your fan base is going to increase...…."
"Wait, wait," Xin Mei interrupted Gu Nan. "What my show?"
"Oh damn," GU Nan cursed. "I forgot to tell you, tonight my channel will be telecasting a show about you, based on an interview which we had in city B. I am also going to add the photo of roses in it. So, just wait till ten in the night, then you will become famous."
"Gu Nan, you don't need to make a special show for...…"
Before Xin Mei could complete, Gu Nan interrupted her. She spoke with urgency in her voice. "It was not my decision but the decision of production head. And now I am going, I am required to manage the show. Ok, bye bye bye."
Gu Nan hanged up the call. Xin Mei placed her mobile on the bedside table. She laid down on the bed for some rest and within a minute, she was fast asleep.
