"What's wrong?" When Cassie was about to leave the film set, someone suddenly spoke.

The voice came from a man who was now walking towards them. He was wearing a white turtleneck sweater and a long black woolen windbreaker. His clean-cut hair and the round-framed glasses on the bridge of his nose made him look smart and handsome.

"Oh, it's Ryan," the assistant director said.

Ryan Ji nodded at the assistant director and then turned to Cassie.

The first thing he noticed was her hair shining golden under the warm winter sun. It was difficult to clearly see her face because she was standing in the light, but Ryan had a glimpse of the mocking smile on her delicate face.

On the other hand, Cassie was trying to recall where she heard his name before, but she couldn't remember where and when it was.

As soon as Ryan Ji got closer to them, he smiled at the assistant director. "I've only been away for a while, but now my assistant will be thrown out?"

Aside from being known as one of the best scriptwriters in the industry, Ryan Ji was also known as a bad-tempered man. Despite this, he was still the target of countless actresses in the entertainment circle. But until now, he was still single. Although he seemed gentle and polite to everyone, a trace of indifference was still evident in his eyes.

Looking at the famous scriptwriter and at the representative of the investor, the assistant director was instantly in a dilemma. There was no way he could afford to offend any of these two!

It was then that Owen came out from the washroom. Seeing everyone gathered, he came over and asked, "What's happening here?"

The assistant let out an exasperated sigh. "Barbara is making trouble again. She is insisting that this lady deleted the director's shots today. Now she and the assistant director want to kick her out!"

"I told you to have a good rest at home. Why didn't you listen to me?"

To everyone's surprise, Dylan's voice came from behind. They all turned to him, while Cassie was too scared to even say a word.

Everyone's eyes were on him, and most of them was amazed of how good he looked even when he was wearing a coat over his black Armani suit. The thick scarf around his neck didn't make him less attractive as well. The sun shone on his body, which coated his delicate and deep features with a faint golden color.

Ignoring the people around, Dylan walked towards Cassie and took off his scarf to put it around her neck. "You don't know how to take care of yourself. Don't make me worry."

Although he was complaining, his tone was full of concern. His eyes were as gentle as water, as if he wanted to see through her.

Needless to say, Cassie was stunned; not only because of his actions, but also because he came here. Why did he come to the set?

All the people present looked at each other. What happened? Confusion was written all over their faces.

Dylan, known as the golden bachelor, was not interested in women. So, why was he so strange today? Why did he suddenly speak to a woman so gently? He even took off his scarf and put it on her!

"Brother, you are finally here. If you didn't arrive on time, I'm afraid my sister-in-law would've been driven out like a stray dog... Oh no."

What Owen said was like a bomb exploding on the film set.

When he realized what he had said, his hands automatically flew to cover his mouth. He shouldn't have said that!

Oh, no, no! He surely regretted opening his mouth. After all, Dylan planned to announce it at a proper time. Moreover, he had hidden the fact that Dylan was his brother to the public. But now... He was stupid enough to blurt it out just like that.

Thinking that he had misheard Owen, the director shook his head, while the assistant director was dumbfounded. The rest of the film crew was also stunned. But the one with the worst expression was Barbara. Her face was pale and blue in embarrassment. How she wished she could find a hole to hide herself.

Several days ago, it was said in the news that Dylan and a mysterious woman were seen at the entrance of the hotel, then at the Civil Affairs Bureau. None of the people present spoke, but they all came up with a conclusion in their minds that Cassie must be Dylan's girlfriend or wife!

At t

his moment, the assistant director was already trembling in fear. He thought it would be better to die now!

The biggest investor of the play, "You Know What I Mean" was Mr. Lu. Now his wife was framed, and he almost threw her out of the set! Therefore, the assistant director wanted to slap himself right now.

Seeing the look on Barbara's face, Cassie felt satisfied.

So she smiled at Dylan and said, "I'm so bored staying at home all the time. Besides, I promised Owen to visit him on the film set. I can't break my promise."

As he listened to Cassie, Dylan cast a stern glance at Barbara. It sent a chill down Barbara's spine, so she lowered her head.

A hint of coldness flashed through Dylan's eyes when he turned to the assistant director. "You have to follow my rules when you work on my film set. Those who don't follow the rules can leave now."

Understanding what he meant, the assistant director smiled. "Yes, yes, we are going to terminate the contract with Miss Jiang right away."

After clearing his throat, Simon smiled at the assistant director. "Mr. Lu means you don't have to be here, either."

Then he waved his hand, signaling the security guard to drive the assistant director out. The look on Dylan's face was screaming that the whole crew owed him five million. "Miss Jiang, do you want to leave by yourself or do I have to ask someone to do it?"

Unwilling to give up, Barbara pursed her lips and said, "Mr. Lu, are you sure you don't want to discuss this with Mr. Shen first?"

Since Mr. Shen had invested in this film, she wasn't flustered at all.

Was she threatening him or reminding him?

Looking at the arrogance on her face, Dylan became impatient. "I'll terminate the contract in advance. I'll pay you three times the liquidated damages and you leave the film set immediately. Otherwise, we will meet in the court."

The atmosphere around them became tensed, and the people on the film set were all flustered. They were all afraid to see Dylan angry.

Why was she so stubborn? It was true that Mr. Shen had invested a lot in this film, but it was nothing compared to Dylan's. Compared with Dylan, they were all powerless. Didn't she know that?

The director stared at Barbara, hoping that she would agree as soon as possible.

They had a lot of scenes to retake today, yet she was wasting their time. Besides, paying her liquidated damages and going to the court would do her no good. Wasn't it easy to make a decision? Did she even have to think about it? What was she hesitating about? What did she want?

Slowly, the smile on Barbara's face disappeared, and was replaced with a sullen look as she stared at Cassie.

Instinctively, Cassie hid behind Dylan and stared back at her.

"You. Why are you looking at me like that? Are you showing off your eyes?"

Before Barbara could even reply, Ryan decided to break the tension. "Miss Jiang, I'm writing a new play recently. There's a role suitable for you. Would you like to consider it?"

Barbara's brows smoothed. She looked at Ryan and smiled. "Okay."

After being humiliated in front of everyone, she naturally wanted to save her face. "Mr. Ji, since you've asked, why don't we find a cafe to have a talk about the role you've mentioned?"

Now that the matter had been settled, Ryan felt relieved. He gently nodded. "Okay."

With that, Barbara walked out of the set unwillingly.

Before leaving, Ryan took a quick glance at Cassie and gave her a smile.

Out of gratitude, Cassie politely smiled back.

Only when Barbara left did the director breathe out a sigh of relief. It was also then that he noticed that all the staff of the film set were still standing there.

"Why are you still standing there? I didn't ask you to be idle. You don't want to work anymore, do you?"

The staff finally came to their senses and went to do their own things.

As soon as they all left, Director Bai turned to Cassie with a flattering smile. "Why didn't anyone tell me that Mrs. Lu came to the film set today? I'm really sorry for what happened today."

Even so, Dylan still gave him a cold look. "Do I have to ask for anyone's permission if my wife wants to go somewhere? Besides, did I spend money for you to find someone to give my wife a hard time?"
