Tian Yuan was confused and wondered why Sister Jiang Nian was behaving strangely today.

Tian Yuan left with Ming Shu and the two walked for a while. She found that her employer seemed to be a little different. Sister Jiang Nian was nice, but she only smiled when there was someone watching—unlike now. Now, she had a faint smile on her face all the time.

She looked easygoing, but...

What was amazing was that Ming Shu had eaten a lot, which astonished Tian Yuan. She tried her best to stop Ming Shu.

"Sister Jiang Nian, don't eat anymore. Sister Aileen would kill me if she found out I didn't stop you!" Tian Yuan jumped up to grab Ming Shu's slice of cake, but Ming Shu was much taller than her. She couldn't take it and even cried in anger.

The passersby looked at them curiously.

This little girl jumped up to grab a slice of cake from a dazzling woman's hand, but that woman, smiling the whole while, only lifted the cake higher and watched the girl. They didn't know whether it was just their imagination, but they swore they saw pink bubbles around the two.

Because Tian Yuan was being so demanding, Ming Shu put on her sunglasses. She didn't wear a mask if she was going to eat.

But she might be recognized like this.

"I'll die if I don't eat." Ming Shu's hand was on top of Tian Yuan's head to stop her jumping. "It'll be fine as long as you don't tell Sister Aileen. Just let me eat this last one. Stop! If you keep doing this, we'll be spotted."

Tian Yuan immediately turned her head to look and found that some people were watching them and even more were edging closer.

Tian Yuan almost cried. With a sad expression, Tian Yuan said, "Sister Jiang Nian, you've said this is the last one too many times!"

Following the full and drunk Ming Shu, the downhearted Tian Yuan returned to the film set. She had already foreseen how Sister Aileen would scold her. It was going to be horrible!

When they came in, the main set was crawling with people. But Ming Shu, sucking a popsicle, didn't care about that. It seemed that what was going on wasn't nearly as worthy of attention as her popsicle.

Tian Yuan worried that Jiang Nian's inelegant behavior would be photographed by someone. She ventured to snatch away the popsicle from Ming Shu's hand and righteously said, "Sister Jiang Nian, stop eating! If you keep eating, I'll call Sister Aileen."

Glancing at the half-eaten popsicle, Ming Shu tried to persuade Tian Yuan: "Now, the country encourages diligence and frugality, so since I've eaten half, I should eat the other half."

Obviously, Tian Yuan knew exactly what Ming Shu really wanted. She quickly threw the popsicle into the trash can.

Immediately afterward, Tian Yuan felt that she had overstepped. She looked at Ming Shu fearfully, but Ming Shu only had eyes for that trash can and didn't pay Tian Yuan any mind at all.

Tian Yuan held her cell phone tightly and thought, Sister Jiang Nian really is weird today.

Will I need to call Sister Aileen?

"We're not finished!" With this sharp shout, the people in front of them backed off and scattered. The woman who'd slapped another charged out angrily, dirt on her clothes and a slightly discomfited look on her face.

A woman in a white dress ran after her, aggrieved, and said: "Sister Manman, it really wasn't on purpose."

Song Man suddenly stopped and turned around. With a ferocious expression, she pointed at the other woman and said, "Ning Keqing, don't think I don't know how you joined our film crew by sleeping with someone. This isn't over."
