Chapter 1278: Can’t Take It Anymore

The innkeeper’s attitude made Xu Cheng extremely angry. She knew that he was lying and that the bed sheets must have been used by someone else, but he insisted that it was a new one, so she had no choice but to endure it.

When she returned to the room, Xu Cheng saw Huang Ying rummaging through her bag and the pockets of her few remaining clothes.

“What are you doing?!” Xu Cheng was already angry. Now that she saw Huang Ying searching through her things like a thief, she was even angrier.

Upon being caught by Xu Cheng, Huang Ying was also afraid. She simply glanced at Xu Cheng indifferently and threw the clothes in her hands onto the bed. “I just wanted to see if there’s any money that you forgot in the pockets of the clothes… After deducting the room fees and deposit for a few days, we’re only left with a little more than a hundred yuan. What’s that little money enough for! We still have to think of a way to get some money.”

Huang Ying’s tone was more or less filled with despair. She had nothing left now.

If she had known that things would turn out like this, she wouldn’t have agreed to Eric’s ridiculous request in the first place. She wouldn’t have let Xu Cheng impersonate Lina’s daughter, and she wouldn’t have fallen out with the Ruan family. If that was the case, perhaps she wouldn’t have indirectly caused the old lady to fall down the stairs in order to stop the old lady from snitching, and she wouldn’t have been chased out by Madam Ruan. She would still be able to live a life financially supported by the Ruan family. At least she wouldn’t have to worry about food and clothing, and she would also have a nanny to serve her.

Xu Cheng sat dejectedly on the sofa that was covered with dirty spots, and her heart was filled with the same despair. At that time, she had thought that in the future, she would have everything after becoming Lina’s daughter. Therefore, when she and Huang Ying were chased out by Madam Ruan and all their belongings were thrown out, Xu Cheng only took a few clothes and daily necessities that she had changed into and followed Eric to the hotel to seek refuge with Lina. She never thought that her lie would be exposed one day. She also never thought that Lina would be so ruthless as to take back everything that was given to her while leaving only her own things.

Now that she had nothing, she didn’t know what would happen in the future. What should she do?

She had to think of a way to earn money…

At this moment, a huge cockroach crawled out from the bottom of the sofa and climbed onto Xu Cheng’s hand. Xu Cheng was so scared that her face turned pale. She screamed and stood up while waving her hands.

“When will this way of living end! I can’t take it anymore! I can’t take it anymore!” This was only the first day, but Xu Cheng had already broken down to the point of being unable to take it anymore. How was she going to survive the countless days and nights that followed?

Early Monday morning, before Zhi Ya Entertainment had even started work, Xu Cheng had already arrived at the film and media department.

At that moment, Xu Cheng was standing at the door of the office that Ling Tianya had arranged for her in the past few days that she had worked at Zhi Ya Entertainment. She wanted to push the door open to enter, but she realized that the door couldn’t be pushed open at all. She could only stand guard at the door to wait for the people from the film and media department to come.

Not long after, the employees came to work one after another. When they saw Xu Cheng standing there, they all looked at her with astonishment.

“Who are you? Why are you standing at the door of my office?” At that moment, a gentle-looking woman wearing glasses walked over while looking at Xu Cheng in confusion.

“Your office?” Xu Cheng asked in return, “This is clearly my office, so when did it become yours! I haven’t asked who you are yet! You’re the one who locked my office, right?”
