My one in a million wife [Ashlyn and Lucas] chapter 238
A thought came to his mind when he remembered that his wife had a close relationship with Ashlyn.
In the hall, Lisa was eating peanuts and chatting with her other female colleagues.
“I heard they hired a new producing director this year.”
“I wonder if she is young…”
“Rumor has it that Mr. Field has found an expert this time.”
They were trading rumors and gossips with each other.
Some female performers from other companies joined their conversation. “I wonder if she is pretty.”
With a surly expression on her face, Janet cast a glance at the three co-producers standing not far away and kicked up a fuss, “Last year, I played no leading parts at all. My parts were so insignificant that my father had to wait all night just to see me on the screen for two seconds.”
Another performer started complaining, “Me too! I was annoyed because our show was scheduled as the last few performances. My grandma almost fell asleep waiting for my turn to perform.”
The ladies were expressing their dissatisfaction with the co-producers.
The co-producers stood in the corner of the hall; none of them dared to utter a word.
With a smug smile on her face, Janet continued to stir the pot by saying, “If the new producing director is incompetent, we should protest and ask them to replace her with someone else.”
Just then, they heard a calm voice coming from outside the door. “Excuse me, may I know who is it that you want to replace?”
The performers unanimously turned to look in the direction of the doorway.
A tall and svelte figure was walking toward them.
It was a woman in white sportswear and she was wearing a pair of clunky sneakers.
The dim light shone on her like a spotlight, but they couldn’t see her features as half of her face was hidden under the baseball cap that she was wearing.
Her silky black hair was tied into a long ponytail, which swayed slightly following the rhythm of her footsteps.
Ashlyn stepped on the stage and raised her head slightly.
At that instant, everyone was dumbfounded by her beauty when they finally saw her face.
She is gorgeous! Unbelievably stunning!
Her facial features were a perfect combination of dazzling eyes, dainty nose and soft pink lips. Although she didn’t have any make-up on her face, her skin was flawless.
They were also taken aback by her distinguished and imposing aura.
Those who were in the hall had come across many leaders and superiors in their company. Therefore, they knew that that kind of imposing aura was a trait exclusive to high-ranking leaders.
How is it possible for a young lady like her to have such a strong aura?
Ashlyn remained expressionless as she cast a glance over the disunited group of extras.
She clapped her hands and summoned them, “Gather around.”
“Why should we listen to your order?” Janet muttered.
Janet’s grandfather was a colonel. Before he retired, he had secured a post for Janet to work as Mr. Field’s clerk.
Some of Mr. Field’s aides were once the colonel’s students, so they were helpful and caring towards her.
As time went by, Janet started to become full of herself, thinking that she was superior to others.
Lisa returned to her senses upon hearing Janet’s words. She took a step forward and asked in disbelief, “Ms. Berry, what brings you here?”
Ashlyn raised her brow as she replied, “Ms. Langley, nice to meet you again.”
Without bothering to wait for Lisa’s reply, she presented her staff ID and introduced herself, “My name is Ashlyn, and this is my staff ID. From today onwards, I will be the producing director of the National Day Gala Night. I look forward to working together with all of you.”
Lisa came up to Ashlyn and asked skeptically, “Ms. Berry, how come you are our producing director? You’re so young… What are you capable of?”
Although she appeared to be showing concern for Ashlyn, everyone knew that she was trying to embarrass Ashlyn. However, none of them stopped her because what Lisa asked was also their concern.
Ashlyn smiled wryly as she looked at Lisa. “Ms. Langley, please gather with the other performers. I am here at the personal request of Mr. Field. You can communicate with Mr. Field if you have any opinions, but none of you have a say in whether I should stay or leave.”
