Su Yuchen and Xin Mei together visited a lot of shops. Xin Mei brought a lot of goodies for everyone. Su Yuchen talked with the local shopkeepers.
Sometimes, Su Yuchen took long in his talk and Xin Mei waited for him. Sometimes, Xin Mei took a long time in shopping and Su Yuchen waited for him. They both were acting like some couple.
Even some shopkeepers complimented them. "Isn't this couple of husband and wife very kind? They are thinking so much about their welfare."
They would feel embarrassed at such comments and would completely ignore it. Unconsciously, they both loved the company of one another.
"Hey, why are you returning back? There are still many shops left, you haven't visited them yet." Xin Mei pointed out when she saw Su Yuchen making a turn toward their hotel.
"I know that but I have to return back to the hotel. I am leaving the city at night."
"What? You are really leaving now?" Xin Mei asked. There was sadness in her voice. Su Yuchen also caught the sadness but he didn't comment on it.
"I have an important meeting tomorrow morning. Besides, I have already spent a long time in City B. I should return back home. A lot of work is waiting for me in my office."
Xin Mei nodded her head. She didn't say anything. Both of them, in silence, made their way towards the hotel.
"I should take my leave now, Miss Xin. If possible, we will meet some other day." And with that, Su Yuchen was out from her sight.
Xin Mei could feel sadness was engulfing her heart. She realized that it was probably the last time she was seeing Su Yuchen. She felt pain at this realization. Was her crush going to end in such a manner?
"Don't worry Xin Mei. If fate wants, then you will meet him again. He also lives in city A like you. So don't worry?" Xin Mei consoled himself.
She made her way towards her room, where she fell down on the bed. She closed her eyes and let the images of Su Yuchen haunt her mind. His images were way better than her horrible dreams.
It was nearly evening when Xin Mei woke up. Her mobile was continuously ringing. She picked up her mobile and realized that it was a call from Fang Lin.
"Xin Mei, How are you feeling now?" Fang Lin questioned from the other side of the phone. There was worry and concern in her voice.
"I am feeling better Fang Lin."
"Oh good. I become worried for you when you didn't pick up my call. I thought you were very sick. I was about to call director before you picked up the call."
"I was sleeping, Fang Lin. Why did you call by the way? Have you returned back to the hotel?"
"We have returned half an hour back. And I called because Mr. Qian had invited media in city B. They are here to get some news about revenge. To face media, director Zhang is arranging a dinner at the ballroom of the hotel." Fang Lin filled her in.
"Come down to the dressing room once you feel oriented. I have to get you ready for your first ever press meeting."
"I am coming in five minutes. Do I need to bring anything?" Xin Mei murmured in a dull voice. She wasn't ready for meeting media now. And from media, she remembered Gu Nan. If media was coming here then why didn't Gu Nan informed her about it before?
"No need Xin Mei. Director Zhang had already asked us to prepare everything back in city A. He already had a hutch about this emergency."
"Noted Fang Lin. I will be down soon." She cut the call and sighed heavily.
Xin Mei stretched her body and stood up from the bed. She walked towards the bathroom where she freshen up. She came out of the bathroom feeling fresh. She ordered the room service to deliver a cup of tea in her dressing room.
She entered the dressing room. She found that Zhou Mingyu was already getting her hairs and makeup done.
"Do my makeup perfectly. Today, I want to look the most beautiful lady. I want every reporter to write well about the best actress and her movie." Zhou Mingyu gloated. She then turned and looked at Xin Mei.
"Oh Xin Mei, you here. We really missed you during our trip. You wouldn't believe how much fun we had."
"Glad you have fun senior Zhou." Xin Mei spoke in a formal manner. She walked towards her and leaned toward her ear.
"By the way, I should be thanking you. Today, I have a good rest. I am feeling extra fresh now. I am sure that tonight my face will look fresh as a flower not like others who haven't slept from last few nights."
Xin Mei taunted Zhou Mingyu. A smirk was planted on her lips. Zhou Mingyu looked at her with blazing eyes.
"Fang Lin, show me the dress for tonight."
"Here is your dress. I know you don't like such a dress but you need to wear it for tonight. You know media...…."
"I got you." Xin Mei took the dress from the hand of Fang Lin. She walked towards the changing room to change her dress. She was unaware of the evil smile which spread on the lips of Zhou Mingyu.
Xin Mei came out after changing her dress. Her dress was a silver-colored long gown which fit her like a glove. Her dress was an off-shoulder dress with a zipper on her back.
"Xin Mei, you are looking really beautiful in this dress. This dress is perfect for you. I am sure that the press is going to describe your beauty in their articles." Fang Lin complimented Xin Mei.
Xin Mei walked towards the empty chair and took her seat. She was well aware that today also Zhou Mingyu was going to make her late.
Once hairdresser was done with Zhou Mingyu, she walked towards Xin Mei. She did her hair in a low bun which was liked by Xin Mei.
"What are you doing Xin Mei? Don't you want Missus Ming to apply makeup on your face?"
Fang Lin gasped in shook when she saw Xin Mei had pulled out her makeup kit from her bag.
"No need Fang lin. I only need simple makeup which I could do by myself. My skin is already itchy by applying makeup for so long. I don't think I can bear any more makeup. Besides, my skin is already flawless I don't need any makeup to hide the flaws."
Xin Mei very smartly threw the last remark towards Zhou Mingyu who was scolding the makeup artist for not hiding her eye circle.
"What do you mean Xin Mei?" Zhou Mingyu yelled angrily. "Do you think I am applying makeup to hide our flaws?"
"I haven't said a thing to you, Zhou Mingyu. Have I? So why are you getting angry? Do you believe that your skin is full of flaws that you are getting angry?"
Zhou Mingyu sealed her mouth upon hearing the words of Xin Mei. She was never good at coming with a reply back and now Xin Mei was taking full benefit of it.
"Fang Lin, how is my makeup?" Xin Mei questioned to Fang Lin, once she was satisfied with her makeup.
Xin Mei had simply applied some eyeliner on her eyes and natural lipstick on her lips.
"You are looking good Xin Mei. Now we should go. We shouldn't make the others wait."
With that, both ladies made their way towards the ballroom. Zhou Mingyu watched at their leaving figure and sent a message to someone.
'Xin Mei, let's see, how will you save your dignity now? No one will save you from my plan this time.' Zhou Mingyu smirked and made her way to the ballroom, to watch the show directed by her.
