Chapter 60 Change Of Tone
xandra night’s sleep last night, she must look horrible. Remember to take a photo of her with your phone later!”
“Yes, Xandra.” The assistant went around the studio but still didn’t see Christina.
Xandra. I didn’t see Christina. Could it be that she has gone back?” the assistant asked. Well, it only takes around an hour to walk back to the hotel. Christina wouldn’t be stupid enough to stay here through the night,
Just then, Gina and Anna came over and asked in a displeased tone, “Last night, you said Christina had already gone back! We couldn’t contact her the entire night!”
Xandra’s assistant had told them a lie to prevent them from looking for Christina the night before.
Hence, she felt embarrassed when she was called out. “Perhaps my eyes were playing tricks on me. Who would pay attention to where an insignificant designer would go?”
That’s not what you said last night!” Anna grew anxious, and Gina had to calm her down.
Suddenly, the director told everyone to get ready, and they both had to help the actors get changed.
While others were getting ready, Christina was still nowhere to be seen. Therefore, no one was helping Xandra put her clothes on, and she had no choice but to wait in the dressing room.
After half an hour, Xandra went to the director and complained, “Director, Christina is late by almost an hour. She’s so unprofessional. I suggest we change the stylist.”
Xandra was trying to kick Christina out of the production team so that she wouldn’t need to deal with Christina anymore. After all, anyone can be a stylist.
The director frowned in response. Christina isn’t committed, is she? I’ve never been held up by a stylist.
“Let’s just change the stylist. Kindly get Radiant Corporation to send another stylist here,” the director said.
Xandra was elated. I didn’t know it would be this easy to kick Christina out of the production team!
“Director, did I hear you say you want a new stylist?”
A cold voice suddenly rang out, and everyone turned in the direction of the voice.
Nathaniel’s tall figure was facing away from the light, but his facial features and jawline made him look even more dazzling than a star.
With Christina standing next to him, everyone at the scene could tell they were a couple.
Right then, the producer ran toward the director and whispered something into the latter’s ear.
Upon hearing what the producer said, the director changed his expression dramatically. Smiling, he welcomed Nathaniel by saying, “Hello, Mr. Hadley. I didn’t know you were the major investor for this web series. Please have a seat.”
Nathan stood still without budging an inch and asked, “Did you say you want to change my girlfriend as the stylist?”
The director was overwhelined with regret. I knew Mr. Hadley was rumored to be in a relationship with a stylist on the production team. However, I didn’t know he was also the major investor!
“No! Never! Christina is such a good stylist. How could I ask for someone else?” The director chuckled after changing his tone.
Only then did Nathaniel nod in satisfaction.
Suddenly, Xandra approached Nathaniel with a smile and asked, “Nathaniel, did you specifically ask for me to be the lead actress for this series?”
Wait… Could it be that Nathaniel was the one who brought Christina away last night? With that in mind, Xandra’s heart sank, and she instinctively clenched her fists.
Nathaniel ignored her and shifted his gaze toward Christina. “Get on with your work. We’ll have lunch together later.”
Christina nodded and left.
Upon entering the dressing room, Xandra slammed the door shut and warned, “Christina, you better not say silly things in front of Nathaniel!”
Xandra’s heart ached when she recalled how cold Nathaniel had been toward her moments earlier. Nathaniel is now bewitched by Christina. If she were to say anything to him, he would misunderstand me even
In response, Christina raised her cold gaze and asked in an icy tone, “What’s the matter? Are you afraid that I might complain about you to Nathaniel?”
Xandra’s face was filled with fear, but she pretended to be calm and explained, “It was you who
wandered around and failed to get on the cars heading back to the hotel last night. I have nothing to do with that.”
Christina smirked and put on an expression that indicated that she was choosing not to expose Xandra. Her expression soon became aloof and distant.
“Let’s get changed, shall we? If we wait any longer, you might run to the director to complain about me again,” Christina uttered sarcastically.
Xandra was weirded out by the fact that Christina wasn’t keen on pursuing that matter. However, she didn’t give it much thought.
While Christina was helping Xandra get changed, Christina seemed extremely calm, as if she hadn’t been tricked just the night before.
Xandra got her makeup done and went downstairs to start shooting.
Meanwhile, Christina stood on the second floor, looking down at Xandra. Nathaniel would know what happened even without me telling him about it. Besides, I have my own way of getting revenge.
Cana and Anna soon found Christina and expressed their concern. The three of them then went to the
studio to watch the progress of the filming.
It was a fighting scene, so the idle staff would also gather around and watch the filming.
One had to admit that Xandra looked amazing as a beauty from the olden times, and credit had to be given to her stylist for doing a good job at making that happen.
Although Nathaniel was sitting in the director’s seat, he wasn’t paying attention to the shoot. Instead, he was busy answering calls and going through his documents.
!lence, he didn’t notice Xandra shooting him several flirtatious glances.
\ while into the shooting, Xandra suddenly felt discomfort all over her body. Why does it feel like I’ve been bitten by mosquitoes?
Since she was constantly scratching her neck and her arms, she was making odd movements during
Consequently, the director was getting annoyed because they had to keep pausing the shoot.
What’s wrong with you, Xandra? Didn’t you shower last night?” the director asked unhappily.
“I think there are a lot of mosquitoes around because we’re near the forest. My body itches,” Xandra. explained while scratching all over her body.
Xandra was panicking because she didn’t know what was going on. Soon, a red patch appeared on her cheek.
The director was getting stressed out. Normally, it’s already annoying to hear so many requests from Xandra. Now, issues are surfacing during the shoot!
You can’t carry on with the shoot, can you? Get the makeup artist to cover up the red patch on your heek,” the director ordered.
Xandra was about to burst into tears because everyone around her seemed fine. Furthermore, quite a few were chuckling discreetly when they saw her getting embarrassed.
At the same time, the crowd began to murmur among themselves.
“Could it be that Xandra doesn’t like taking a shower?”
“That’s most probably it. Otherwise, why is no one else feeling itchy?”
“She only looks clean on the outside. It seems like she’s actually unhygienic. How disgusting!” Xandra was infuriated, and the red patch on her cheek became more apparent as she felt humiliated. Right at that moment, Xandra noticed a pair of calm eyes staring right at her.
Christina was staring at Xandra and enjoying the fact that Xandra was humiliating herself in front of
Upon seeing that, Xandra knew Christina was the cause of the itch she was feeling all over her body. I Can’t say anything now because I don’t have any proof! How dare you sabotage me, Christina!
