The shoot in the morning went by without a hitch. She had a working lunch at noon, and once the lunch break was over, it was time for the afternoon’s shoot.
She was in the middle of a take when she heard the wail of an ambulance’s siren from outside the set. Several members of the production crew began to wonder why an ambulance had come.
Someone went out to see what was going on, and returned to say that Qi Liya, the leading lady for “Red Sleeved Beauty,” had been in an accident. Xu Xiyan’s heart sank when she heard the news.
She pressed for more information, and learned that the accident had happened during one of Qi Liya’s wire stunts: she had been suspended in mid-air when the wires suddenly snapped, sending her plummeting to the ground. It had been a nasty fall.
The ambulance had been sent for, and Qi Liya was now on the way to First People’s Hospital.
As soon as she was done filming that afternoon, Xu Xiyan left the set, fully intending to hurry over to the hospital to see Qi Liya.

Her eyes were full of ridicule and disdain. She was implying that Xu Xiyan had deliberately spread the rumors about being in a relationship with Ni Yun to get a leg up in the industry.
Xu Xinrou did not believe for a minute that Xu Xiyan had been awarded the lead role in “Root of Evil” because of her acting skills.
