The next day, Christina packed her things and returned to the set.
Gina and Anna hugged her. “You’re finally back! Do you know how busy we’ve been these past few days?”
“Sorry for causing you trouble.”
Christina felt a bit embarrassed.
Gina laughed. “We’re in the same group. There’s no need for such apologies.”
Xandra had been blacklisted, and for an entire week, negative news about her had dominated the headlines. All her contracts had been terminated, and even her endorsements had been canceled.
Everyone on the internet had been cheering.
As she hadn’t shot many scenes, the screenwriter completely changed her role. In order not to be affected, all the shots related to Xandra had been deleted.
As a result, Coco, who was initially the second female lead, became the female lead.
Christina and Coco got along very well. Coco was a hardworking young actress, who was both youthful and cheerful.
For two months, almost all the staff had to work overtime and stay up late to complete the filming.
Inside the dressing room, Christina was helping Coco organize her clothes.
“We’re wrapping up today, and we’ll have to part ways. I really don’t want to say goodbye,” Coco said.
She felt that Christina had a great sense of style and uniqueness in fashion.
She deeply admired her talent.
“We have each other’s number. We can meet up for a meal after this,” Christina said with a smile while helping Coco fix her hair.
Coco hesitated, feeling that it would be a pity not to seize the opportunity with such a talented person right in front of her.
“Christina, have you ever thought about becoming a celebrity stylist? I think you have a great eye for fashion. Why don’t you quit your job and become my personal stylist?”
In fact, behind every big–name celebrity is their own exclusive makeup artist.
A good stylist can create an image that helps a celebrity quickly rise to a new level, even increasing their popularity.
Many female celebrities have gained fame through a single breakthrough move.
“I’m doing quite well at Radiant Corporation, and I’m not planning to go solo yet. If there’s a chance, I’ll contact you,” Christina said with a smile.
She felt that working in a large company was quite good, as it provided more resources and a bigger platform for development.
“All right, then. I have a party on Saturday. Can you help me with my styling? I promise I’ll pay you well.”
Coco leaned on Christina’s slender shoulder, acting cute, which made Christina shudder inwardly.
“All right. I’ll ask Ms. Tanner and get back to you.”
After Christina finished organizing her clothes, the two of them arrived at the film set.
Christina told Gina about Coco’s invitation.
“Radiant Corporation is quite accommodating. As long as it doesn’t affect the company’s image, you can take private orders. However, you’ll need to give thirty percent of your commission to the company. Are you okay
Christina cared more about opportunities.
After staying on the set for two months, Christina immediately went to see her mother upon returning downtown.
The surgery was very successful. Sharon’s body had recovered significantly after nearly two months of recuperation in the VIP ward.
As soon as the nurse saw Christina, she couldn’t stop her mouth from running.
“Your boyfriend is handsome and nice! He visits Mrs. Steele often and accompanies her on walks around the courtyard to enjoy the breeze. What an incredible man. I’m truly envious!”
Christina would hear the same words every time she came, and each time she would just respond with, a smile.
“Mom, your health has improved a lot. I’ll help you with the discharge process in a few days. Shall we go back and stay at Granny’s house together?”
Sharon shook her head, not agreeing. “Your granny was upset about me marrying your dad. Not only did we lose your granddad’s company, but it also caused him to pass away with regrets. I really can’t bring myself to go back and see her.”
Every time the past was brought up, her mother would become melancholic. And each time Christina saw her mother in distress because of the Steele family, a desire for revenge would sprout in her heart.
She just knew that now was not the right time.
“If you don’t want to go back to Granny’s, then just go back to your previous condominium,” Christina said as she turned around, the gloom on her face disappearing instantly.
She would never let her mother see her unhappy side.
After leaving the hospital, Christina returned to Scenic Garden Manor.
“Mrs. Hadley, you’re back! Mr. Hadley is waiting for you in the dining room.”
Upon entering the dining hall, Christina saw a table filled with delicious food, and she couldn’t help but gulp. “Can we really finish all this food?”
Nathaniel chuckled softly, gently grasping her wrist and pulling her into his embrace. Christina found herself sitting sideways in his arms.
“It’s dinnertime.” Christina flinched, feeling a gentle warmth on her right cheek.
“We’ll eat like this.”
Nathaniel wrapped one arm around Christina’s slender waist, his dark eyes taking in her blushing cheeks.
It had been almost two months since they had been apart, and he had been missing her like crazy.
However, to his surprise, the woman did not even spare him a glance when she returned, as her sparkling eyes were fixed on the table full of delicious food.
Christina could not move freely, having been held, but it didn’t prevent her from eating.
“This is delicious. You should try some.”
While eating, Christina didn’t forget to feed Nathaniel as well.
“This is quite good too. You should try it… That’s more like it. You need to eat a little bit of everything to get proper nutrition… This one is too fat. You eat.”
The housekeeper standing nearby was dumbfounded upon witnessing this scene.
Everyone at Scenic Garden Manor knew that Nathaniel had a severe case of mysophobia.
However, every time Christina brought the food she had eaten to Nathaniel’s mouth, he would eat it all.
At first, Christina would pick up a piece of chicken and take a bite, leaving only one bite left for Nathaniel.
Then gradually feeling full, she took a bite of each dessert and stuffed the remaining pieces into Nathaniel’s
What does she take Mr. Hadley for?
This is just too much!
“I’m so full. I can’t eat anymore,” Christina said contentedly, patting her satisfied belly.
She shifted slightly, adjusting her position to curl up better in Nathaniel’s arms, then nuzzled against him.
Nathaniel took a napkin and gently wiped her mouth.
“Let’s go to a dinner party together on Saturday.”
Christina said lazily, “I can’t. I promised to give Coco a makeover, and I can’t go back on my word.”
Nathaniel didn’t insist. He scooped her up and headed toward the second floor.
“Where are we going?” Christina had planned to eat her fill and then head back.
Nathaniel furrowed his brow. “After eating so much, we need to do some exercise to burn it off.”
After saying that, he carried her into the bedroom and closed the door.
Christina felt a sense of danger as if a sheep had entered a wolf’s den. Nathaniel put her down on the couch, but when he leaned in, she held him back with her small hand.
“I have to work tomorrow. I can’t tire myself out,” she whispered in protest.
Ever since their feelings for each other grew stronger, Nathaniel had become increasingly attached to her.
This time, they hadn’t seen each other for two months.
Nathaniel leaned in slightly toward her ear and whispered, “When have I ever asked you to tire yourself out?” Christina’s resistance was in vain as the man soon conquered her.
On Saturday, Christina arrived at the hotel with a set of formal attire and work materials following the address
given by Coco.
“Christina, with you styling me, I’ll definitely dazzle everyone this time!”
Coco pulled Christina into the hotel room, filled with confidence.
