She calmly returned to the private room, and found that Zhao Ruiqi had already refilled her empty cup.
Xu Xiyan guessed that her drink had been spiked.
Once she sat down, Zhao Ruiqi lifted her own cup for a toast. “Jing Xi, you finally finished all your scenes. We’ll miss seeing you on the set. Here’s another toast—I hope we’ll be able to get together again in the future.”
What a load of bull!
Xu Xiyan snorted inwardly as she raised her cup with a beatific smile on her face.
Zhao Ruiqi stared at Xu Xiyan’s cup. She was shouting like a maniac inside: Come on, drink it! It’s going to be such a “fun” and “exciting” night for you!
The cup was almost at Xu Xiyan’s lips when there was a sudden ke-rack!—it was the sound of a phone hitting the floor.
Zhao Ruiqi watched the new phone she had bought for 10,000 yuan hit the floor. Sh*t! She felt as though she had been punched in the gut.
She set her cup down and hastily bent to retrieve her phone. Xu Xiyan seized the opportunity to switch their drinks.
“The phone’s okay, right? I hope I didn’t break it,” Xu Xiyan asked worriedly as Zhao Ruiqi picked up her phone. In actual fact, she had deliberately dropped it, but she wasn’t about to admit it.
“Oh my god, look at this crack on the screen! It’s a new phone! Why am I so unlucky?! Ugh…” It pained Zhao Ruiqi to see what had become of her new phone. She could not stop sighing.
“Oh, that’s probably just a sign of good luck coming your way. Out with the old, in with the new! Come on, let’s have a toast—to a change of luck for you!”
All of Zhao Ruiqi’s attention was now on her phone. She downed her drink without a second thought—all she wanted now was for her bad luck to go away.
The dinner was now coming to an end. Many of the male production staff were already drunk. Xu Xiyan put a hand to her forehead. “Qiqi, I feel so dizzy!”
She got up unsteadily. She looked like she would fall over any minute, if it wasn’t for Zhao Ruiqi supporting her.
Zhao Ruiqi was also feeling light-headed from the spiked drink. She brushed it off, thinking it was just the white wine she had been drinking.
“Jing Xi, if you’re feeling dizzy, I can take you upstairs to rest. Director Huang booked a room, in case any us wanted to refresh ourselves.”
“Okay, sorry for the trouble.”
Xu Xiyan leaned against Zhao Ruiqi, and let her steer her out of the private room.
Zhao Ruiqi led Xu Xiyan to the elevator and pressed the button for the 11th floor. It took her some time to figure out the floor plan and find the room Wen Li had booked: Room 1128.
Once they were inside the room, Zhao Ruiqi tried to get Xu Xiyan onto the bed. Suddenly, her own legs buckled under her and she fell onto the bed, together with Xu Xiyan.
