Chapter 50: Chapter 50 It’s OK. You Still Have Me
Su Bei grabbed a bottle of wine, unscrewed the cap, and took a sip.
This whole party was being thrown for her.
She would never allow anyone to take it away.
However, after taking a few sips of wine, she heard one of the staff members on stage tell another, “What are you doing? You made a mistake in the name! Change ‘Su Bei’ to ‘Su Huixian’, quick!”
“Isn’t it supposed to be Su Bei?”
“No, Su Huixian has replaced her. Hurry up. If she walks in and sees this, she’ll be upset!”
Soon enough, the name on the banner was changed to ‘Su Huixian.’
Su Bei knew that her father and Du Luo were powerful enough to influence the decisions of the senior executives of Qian Yu Entertainment Company. After all, the company relied on the investment and backing of the Su family and the Du family.
She, on the other hand, had no power or backing, so she was a nobody!
Closing her eyes in displeasure, she took a few more gulps of wine.
Ever since she was diagnosed with stomach cancer, she hadn’t drunk at all.
But at this moment, she felt that only the burning alcohol could succeed in suppressing the loneliness in the bottom of her heart.
She recalled the time when Xu Zhiqin had cornered her mother into falling off of a building. She had seen her mother die in front of her very eyes.
Therefore, she would never put aside her hatred for Xu Zhiqin or her daughter!
However, her father hadn’t taken her feelings seriously. He had treated her hatred for those two women as childish ignorance and rebellion.
And now, he had even helped Su Huixian take away the career that should have belonged to her.
“Huixian’s coming!” Everyone gathered around the door to welcome her.
With tears in her eyes, Su Bei fled the hall, staggering to the door step by step.
Perhaps it was because she had drunk after such a long time, but she could barely balance herself after drinking just a few gulps of wine.
Behind her came loud cries of “Congratulations” and happy laughter. But all this joy and festivity had nothing to do with her.
Even after exiting the company building, she continued walking aimlessly down the road.
A Bentley slowly followed her before coming to a stop.
Noticing that she was in low spirits, Lu Heting got out of the car and strode over to her. Then, putting his arm around her shoulder, he led her back to the car.
When he finally looked down at her face, he found that her eyes were red and a little swollen, like peach blossoms. There was also a faint smell of alcohol coming from her.
“Did you drink?” A deep frown appeared on Lu Heting’s face.
She had just been there for a short while and that was her company. Where had she drunk so much?
The corners of Su Bei’s mouth lifted. She wanted to flash him a smile, but tears involuntarily welled up in her eyes. “They held a celebration party for me to wish me success in tomorrow’s show. So I took a sip…”
Was that why she was so tipsy that she didn’t even notice that he had his arm around her?
He knew that she wasn’t telling him the whole truth.
He looked down at her, and a touch of pity flashed across his eyebrows. “What happened?”
“They replaced me with Su Huixian…” The tears in Su Bei’s eyes finally slid across her long eyelashes and fell down her cheeks.
Half of her face was covered by her long hair, and the smile on her face was faint.
Lu Heting instinctively wrapped both his arms around her and held her close.
Su Bei hugged him back. “After they appeared, I lost my mother, then my father, then Du Luo, and now, I even lost my job… I have nothing in this world.”
“It’s ok. You still have me,” Lu Heting whispered in a mellow voice.
