Chapter 59 Go Back To The Hotel
With Nathaniel backing her up, Christina worked smoothly with the film crew.
Being in charge of styling was actually not a tiring job, as there were designated makeup artists in charge of the actors‘ makeup. All she had to do was focus on hair styling and helping the actors put on
The only downside was that Christina had to arrive before the start of the shoot and finish hanging up the clothes after the shoot before leaving.
When it was lunchtime, Christina sat beside Anna to watch the filming after finishing her tasks.
Ethan was the most popular celebrity recently. He had a smooth and gentle–looking face, a pair of eyes that slanted upwards, a straight nose, and a pair of thin lips.
He was incredibly handsome and more recognizable, unlike normal male celebrities.
Even Anna had become his fan after joining the film crew for only a few days. She would constantly sing praises of him to Christina.
Although the job had long working hours, Christina had a lot of free time. Therefore, she could use some of her time to study the contrast of colors.
Meanwhile, Xandra, who was resting not far away, had her gaze fixed on Christina.
She had been avoiding Christina ever since she was humiliated in front of everyone that night.
In fact, Xandra would change out of her outfit herself during their break before letting Christina handle it.
Xandra could not put aside her ego and lower herself to talk to Christina after being humiliated by who she thought was an ordinary girl. After all, the former was well–known in the entertainment industry.
“Are you still angry, Xandra?” asked Xandra’s assistant, who had suffered a lot for the past few days. Retracting Mer
gaze, Xandra snapped, “Why would I hold a grudge against someone so insignificant?” Who does Christina think she is? Nathaniel’s just not tired of her yet. It won’t be long before he gets bored with her. He’ll still end up choosing someone who matches him in terms of social and economic status.
“You’re prettier than her. Not only that, you come from a wealthier family. You’re better than Christina in every aspect. Amph. The more I see her, the more I dislike her. I really want to teach her a lesson,” said the assistant to get in Xandra’s good books.
She was certain she would suffer terribly for the next few days if she did not get revenge for Xandra.
“A lesson? Tell me what you have in mind.” Xandra’s interest was piqued.
At that, the assistant leaned over and whispered something into Xandra’s ears.
Xandra curled her lips into a smirk as she eyed Christina.
“That’s a good idea. Let’s do that.”
The shoot ended a little late that night. It was almost midnight by the time they finished working.
Just then, Xandra’s assistant went looking for Christina. “Xandra’s getting changed in the lounge on the
second floor. Please wait at the door.”
The second floor was where Xandra’s private lounge was. Christina had been there a few times to collect the clothes.
After giving a brief response, she went upstairs, only to find the door closed.
Usually, Xandra would come out after getting changed.
And every time, the clothes would be left on the ground as if they were trash.
Hence, Christina simply waited patiently outside the door.
Soon, an hour flew by. It was more than enough time for a person to shower, let alone change their clothes.
Unable to resist any longer, Christina knocked on the door. Alas, no one answered.
A sense of foreboding rose within her. She knocked a few more times, yet she was greeted with silence.
That was when she realized something was off, and she instinctively pushed the door open.
The lights were on, and the clothes were simply left in a corner. However, Xandra was nowhere to be
I’ve been tricked!
It was close to two o’clock in the morning when Christina rushed out of the room.
When she hurried down the stairs, she realized the entire film crew was gone. There was not even a single car left.
She had been left behind!
Her mind buzzed, and she could not find her way around the set that was pitch black.
To make matters worse, she was in the suburbs, where her phone usually had no reception. No wonder no one called me.
Using her phone’s torchlight, she walked out of the set and arrived at an intersection where she stood between a mountain trail and a lonely–looking studio.
Suddenly, she was at a loss for what to do. It would take her more than an hour to walk back to the hotel
However, she could not stay there either. Thus, she had no choice but to rely on her memory and walk back using the path.
The darkness made her conjure scenes of a horrifying beast coming out anytime or even a hand reaching out of nowhere to grab her leg and drag her off to eat her.
The more she thought about it, the more fearful and anxious she felt.
All of a sudden, she started running, hoping to get out of the darkness as soon as possible. All she needed was a place with light so she would not be so afraid.
Not noticing the rock near her foot, she tripped on it and fell to the ground.
Ouch! It hurts!
Perhaps it was because she was feeling so miserable that she burst into tears. There was no one around, anyway; she could cry without feeling ashamed.
She buried her head in her arms as she endured the burning pain in her knees. Instantly, her mood plummeted to rock bottom.
Suddenly, a beam of light pierced.through the night.
Christina looked to the light’s source in fear as a tall figure approached. His bright eyes were the only feature Christina could see clearly.
It was as if he was her light.
“Does it hurt?”
Nathaniel approached and examined her wound with a frown.
“Does it hurt? Are you hurt anywhere else? Christina Steele, answer me!”
The moment he finished his sentence, Christina suddenly opened her arms and threw herself at him.
Her slender arms had surprisingly great strength. She hugged him tightly as if she feared he would run away at any moment.
Nathaniel stiffened for a few seconds before realizing she was trembling slightly in his arms. He patted her head gently and comforted her, “There, there. I’m here. It’s all right now. Let’s go back to the hotel.”
Upon arriving at the presidential suite, a dusty Christina cleaned herself in the bathroom before walking out wearing one of Nathaniel’s white shirts.
“Come here so I can apply medicine for you.”
Nathaniel walked over and carried her to the couch. He wrapped an arm around her, making her lean on his firm chest.
Meanwhile, he used the other arm to clean her wound. “It’s going to hurt a little. Please bear with it.”
Christina placed both arms around his neck and nodded like an injured animal. It tugged at Nathaniel heartstrings.
Her face was pressed against his chest as she sat curled up in his arms. She was so focused on his heartbeat that she felt no pain.
After putting on a bandage for her, Nathaniel gently lifted her leg and kissed it.
“It’ll recover soon.”
Just then, Christina looked up, teary–eyed. She never expected Nathaniel would give her such sense of security.
She was so caught up in studying his face that she did not notice Nathaniel pressing his warm 1 against hers.
His warm breath was like a flame that lit up the night sky.
It slowly surrounded her.
The next morning, everyone had arrived at the set.
Xandra could not wait to laugh and tease Christina.
Serves her right. How dare a plebian like her bully a celebrity like me?
