Both Ma Haodong and Ning Xin were part of Huayin Entertainment. He hadn’t expected to bump into her here, because he had heard that Ning Xin was shooting an idol drama at Hengdian Studios.
“Brother Haodong, I see you haven’t been keeping up with my news. My Hengdian show already wrapped up last week. Now I’m part of ‘Red Sleeved Beauty’,” explained Ning Xin with a smile.
Ma Haodong nodded in reply. “Oh, I see.”
Xu Xiyan was still standing next to Ma Haodong. She hadn’t said anything, but Ning Xin was keenly aware of her; she had seen her walking with Ma Haodong, laughing and joking with him. Ning Xin didn’t like that. Not one bit.
But Ning Xin didn’t let her resentment show on her face. She allowed her gaze to fall naturally upon Jing Xi before asking tentatively, “Oh, is this your girlfriend?”
“She’s not my girlfriend. Don’t misunderstand,” explained Ma Haodong.

They had already met several days ago, during the audition for ROSUE. Ning Xin and Yang Qiong had even mocked her openly—and now she was pretending this was their first meeting? What a load of crock!
Now that they had gotten the introductions over with, Ning Xin said, “Brother Haodong, are you free tonight? We haven’t seen each other in ages, we should have dinner together!”
Ma Haodong was, in fact, free that night. “Sure. I was just about to go for dinner. We’ll have dinner together.” He turned to Xu Xiyan. “Jing Xi, you should come with us too!”
