Chapter 58 Kill Two Birds With U
Chapter 58 Kill Two Birds With One Stone
The first day of filming went smoothly. Although it was just a web series, all the actors and actresses were famous celebrities.
The male lead of the series was the hottest male celebrity of the season, Ethan Sellers, while the second female lead was a third–tier actress, Coco Lynch.
It was Christina’s first time meeting so many celebrities in a day. When Christina and her team were not busy, they could hang around and watch the director film the scenes, which was quite fun.
When they had finished filming for the day, Christina had to hang up the outfit Xandra wore. It could not be washed, or it would go out of shape.
The sun had already set when Christina and her members returned to the hotel with the logistics tears
To celebrate the smooth start of the production, the director invited everyone to have a meal in the hall. However, it cost a lot to treat a film crew that had more than a thousand people.
Thus, the dishes served at the other tables were not as great as the main table.
There were ten people at every table, yet they were only served one meat dish. Christina and the others barely ate anything.
Anna scanned the empty table while grumbling softly, “I might as well go back to my room and have some snacks.”
Christina merely chuckled and said nothing.
Before long, a few servers walked in and served each table dishes such as seafood and various selections of meat. It was as if they were having a wedding dinner.
Seeing that, the director hurriedly called the manager over and asked if they had made a mistake.
Such a sumptuous feast surely would cost more than a hundred thousand.
To the director’s surprise, the manager chuckled and explained, “Mr. Hadley called earlier to add in a few more dishes. He said he’s worried his girlfriend might not have enough food. Anyway, he’s payin for everything here.”
Exclamations rose from the crowd, and all attention was on Xandra.
After all, everyone knew about the recent rumor of Xandra being Nathaniel’s partner. On top of that, neither of them responded to the news. Therefore, they never expected Nathaniel would use such a method to confirm their relationship.
“There’s a cake for dessert. Please enjoy your food, everyone. I’ll send someone to bring the cake in later” With that, the manager walked away.
The second he said that, words of envy flooded Xandra’s ears.
“Xandra, you’re so blessed to have such a caring boyfriend!”
“Xandra, Mr. Hadley’s so attentive to you.”
“Gosh! I’m so jealous of you.”
A blissful smile appeared on Xandra’s face.
Mrs. Hadley must’ve praised me in front of Nathaniel. It sure feels different to have the support of a future mother in–law. Nathaniel must’ve requested the hotel to add more dishes to show his favor to me. Nathaniel, you’re so
Just then, Xandra turned her attention to Christina. She lifted her glass of wine and made her way to
The staff at Christina’s table congratulated Xandra when they saw her approaching.
After responding to their kind words, Xandra sat beside Christina and took a sip of wine. “Feeling jealous, Christina?”
I’m an A–list celebrity now. It won’t take long for me to become the respected Mrs. Hadley. Soon, I’ll have two incredible identities.
Nonetheless, Christina munched on a piece of meat without even looking at Xandra. “No. I’ve always nade a living using my own capabilities. I don’t like being pretentious.”
The female lead in the series is a brave and kind woman. She’s a completely different character from the real Xandra.
Hmph. I know you’re feeling jealous. You must be pissed that Nathaniel is showing off his affection for me.” Xandra breathed so that they were the only ones who could hear the conversation.
The gloating tone in Xandra’s words was palpable. It was as if she wanted Christina to realize what was happening.
Christina let out a mocking laugh. “This is nothing compared to how Nathaniel normally pesters me to make me eat. Anyway, if you’re done talking, then leave. Don’t interrupt my meal.”
Xandra’s eyes widened with fury. She wanted to hit Christina so badly, but she did not dare to do so because they were in public.
“I’m not leaving. I’m going to sit here until the cake comes so everyone knows I’m Nathaniel’s girlfriend, while you’re just a toy he dumped once he was done playing with you.”
Earlier, the manager mentioned there would be cake served after dinner. Xandra was determined to make Christina envious when everyone watched her cut the cake.
Even so, Christina was not bothered by it. It did not matter to her as long as her meal was not interrupted.
In the meantime, Xandra chatted and laughed with the people around her. She had the air of a celebrity as she sipped on her wine and talked at the same time.
When the meal was about to end, Christina wanted to go back to her room to get some rest after having her fill of food. However, Xandra stopped the former.
Who gave you permission to leave? I want you to see who’s the one overestimating herself.”
Knitting her brows, Christina sat back down with an icy glint in her eyes. “Fine. I’ll make sure to catch
Xandra could not wait for the server to bring the cake in. She even ordered her assistant to gather the
rowd to enjoy the cake.
Not long after, almost everyone had surrounded the table.
Please make way. The cake is here!”
As soon as the server placed the ten–inch cake on the table, everyone looked down at the words written on it.
It read: All the best on your first day of work, Christina.
Everyone was bewildered.
Why isn’t Xandra’s name on it? Who’s Christina?
Immediately, someone called out to the server to check if they had made a mistake.
Surprisingly, the server confirmed that the name was Christina.
Just then, Anna exclaimed, “Christina, so you’re the girlfriend Mr. Hadley was talking about!”
Her words shocked the crowd.
They instantly shifted their attention to the young woman, who had a pair of bright eyes, fair skin. delicate features. She was not overshadowed by Xandra despite sitting beside her.
That was when the crowd realized they had congratulated the wrong person.
Christina had been the girlfriend Nathaniel was referring to from the very beginning. Both the cake and dishes were ordered for her.
Xandra was livid. She had never been humiliated like that in her life. Even worse, she had gathered everyone to watch her get humiliated.
Xandra clenched her fists tightly, and her blood pumped wildly due to anger.
When Xandra got up to leave, Christina grabbed the former’s hand and said with a chuckle, “Do you know who’s the one overestimating herself now?”
Xandra’s eyes gleamed with rage. Now that she had been humiliated in front of the entire film crew or the first day of production, she could not imagine how she was going to survive the next few months.
“Don’t push your luck, Christina,” she hissed.
“Too bad. I can afford to push my luck. You, on the other hand, should stop testing my limits. Even kittens scratch humans when they’re angry.”
Only then did Christina let go of Xandra’s hand.
\ subtle smile crept upon Christina’s lips as she watched the pathetic figure recede from her sight After Xandra walked away, everyone turned to Christina and repeated the words they had spoken to he former earlier.
Christina simply thanked them and returned to her room to give Nathaniel a call without even eating the cake.
