My Bossy CEO Husband, Chapter 169: Your Roger
In the lounge, Roger and Wendy were discussing the details.
“Each episode lasts about one and a half hour.As you know, it starts from 7:30 in the evening and ends at 9 o’clock.Of course, that’s not absolute, and it may change according to the situation.”
Wendy nodded, expressing her understanding.
If she had a good conversation with Octavia and the audience rating was good, the ending of the show could be pushed back for few minutes.
However, it would not be any later than 9:30 in the evening.
Roger poured Wendy a cup of coffee in consideration and then gave it to her.
That was not all.
He also handed her an A4-sized paper with a series of questions printed on it.
Wendy took them both.
She looked at the paper and asked, “What’s this?”
“Those are some questions Miss Octavia may ask during the show.You might want check it out now.Maybe it’ll help,” Roger advised.
“Did you prepare all of this?”
With a grateful smile, Wendy patted him on the shoulder and said, “Thank you.”
“Come on.Our company is looking forward to your appearance in that show.If you perform well, you’ll be able to attract a lot of fans.It’s give and take.”
Wendy nodded in agreement and began to read to questions.
As she did so, she could not help but be appalled at them.
They were all sharp and upfront, just as she had anticipated.
One of the questions was…
“A while ago, Miss Evie said that you earned your role in the Story of Concubine Ivanka by sleeping with the director.What can you say about it, Miss Wendy?”
There was also another one.
“Miss Wendy, when Evie had slandered you on the Internet, Mason, Daisy, and Jeffrey spoke for you on Weibo.Because of this, some netizens have speculated that you’re having an affair with the president of Glory Media.As the stars of the said company sided with you, they, the netizens, could not help but think that the three of them only did that because they had no choice.What do you think?”
The question was unbelievably scathing!
‘’I’m having an affair with the president of Glory Media? So ridiculous!’’ Wendy could not help but shudder as she read the questions.
Roger asked with concern upon seeing her sour expression.
“It’s just…why do they think that I’m having an affair with Kane? Honestly, if Ryan is icy cold, Kane is a whole glacier.Besides, he never has any expressions on his face.I’ve never even seen him smile, and that’s scary.If I’m having an affair with him, I must be out of my mind!”
All of a sudden, an inexplicable look appeared on Roger’s face.
Ever so slowly, he pointed at her back.
Wendy frowned and turned around to see what it was.
Speaking of the devil, Kane was standing quietly at the entrance of the lounge.He looked handsome in his gray suit, but his cold expression made him seem frightening and unapproachable.
Wendy was flabbergasted.She was so embarrassed that she wanted to find a hole to hide in.
Of course, that was not possible, so she just stood up and smiled at him fawningly.
“Mr.Kane, how long have you been standing there?” she awkwardly asked.
Kane’s face was cold as ice that had been frozen for a thousand years.
At that moment, he pushed the door open wider and walked in expressionlessly.
“Long enough to hear you say I’ma glacier and that I’ve never had any expressions on my face,” he retorted.
Wendy had no idea what to say.
“****! I want to slap myself.This is so embarrassing! Why did I even say those words? This is so bad.My boss just caught me speaking ill of him.What should I do?’’ Wendy wanted to cry, but no tears fell from her eyes.Without saying a word, she looked at Roger for help.But instead of helping her, he just laughed.
‘What the ****? Why is he laughing at me?’ she thought to herself while glaring at him.
Roger walked towards her and then pulled her to a chair.
Suddenly, he turned around and said to Kane with a chuckle, “You scared her.”
Kane glanced at Wendy, and his already cold face grew even colder.
Meanwhile, Wendy was at a loss.
‘’**** it! Will Kane hate me from now on?’’ Embarrassed, she subconsciously moved closer to Roger.
For some reason, the atmosphere tensed up in an instant.
A chill ran down Wendy’s spine “****! Is it only me? Or does Kane seem frigid more than ever? Look at the way he’s looking at me.It’s like he’s plotting on ************* me at this very moment”
All of a sudden, Roger stood in front of her, blocking Kane’s glare with his back.
She felt Kane’s piercing gaze disappeared at once.
Now that Kane’s deathly stare was gone, Wendy could not help but breathe a sigh of relief.
“Why are you here? Wendy and I are just discussing work,” Roger asked impatiently while looking at Kane.
“As the president, I have the right to know about the artists in my company, don’t I?”
“Oh, please.There are many famous stars in the company.Why do you want to know about a mere newbie?”
“These newbies are the fresh blood of the company.Of course, it’s only right for us to give them great importance.”
Wendy looked at Kane, then at Roger, and back to Kane.
‘Why do I feel that the conversation between these two is a little strange? I feel like they’re actually arguing about something else.Kane is the president of the company, while Roger was just an agent” she mused, clearly confused at what was going on in front of her.
Fearing that Roger would get the short end of the stick, she gently tugged on his sleeve.
“Roger, stop it…”
Wendy urged in a low voice.
But when she lifted her gaze, she found that Kane was looking at her hand disdainfully as she pulled Roger’s sleeve.
Wendy looked at him in confusion.
At that moment, Roger turned sideways to block Kane’s sight and stood in front of Wendy as though protecting her.
“Get out!” he bellowed at Kane while biting his lips.
“No way!” Kane protested.
“Kane, we’re in the company.I hope you can separate your private life from the business!” Wendy felt anxious upon hearing their squabble.
‘Was Kane offended by Roger, so he came to make trouble? Oh no! I didn’t expect that Kane was despicable and vengeful! To make matters worse, I spoke ill of him just now”
At the thought of this, Wendy mustered all her courage.She forcefully grabbed Roger’s wrist and pulled him behind her.
“Hey! Are you really a man, Kane? It was me who said awful things about you, but why are you venting your anger on my agent? He did nothing wrong.Come at me instead!” she demanded while glaring at Kane.
“Wendy!” Roger protested.
“Shut up!” Wendy raised her chin so that she seemed intimidating and looked at Kane with contempt.
“Even though you look unfriendly, I used to believe that you’re a good person.Looks like I am wrong.I’m warning you.Don’t you dare to bully my Roger just because he’s a good man and he’ll let you go easily.”
Just when Wendy thought Kane’s expression would not get even colder, it did.
“Your Roger?” he asked with a sneer.
“That’s right.I won’t let you do anything to hurt him.”
“You…What’s your relationship with him?”
“It’s none of your business!”
When Kane heard her response, his veins bulged on his forehead in anger.
Even so, he tried his best to suppress it.
“You signed a ten-year contract with the company, didn’t you? May I just remind you? You’re not allowed to fall in love during those years.”
‘’Fall in love?’’ Wendy mused.
Confusion was written all over her face.
‘’What is Kane talking about? When did I even fall in love and to whom?’’
There were so many questions in her mind.
Just when she was about to say something, Roger grabbed her hand and shook his head, warning her about something.
Although she had no idea why he did that, she did not say a word.
“Roger!” Kane shouted.
“Well, it seems that it’s inconvenient for us to talk about business in the company today.In that case, I guess I have no choice but to go out with Wendy to do so.Don’t worry, Mr.Kane.I assure you, there won’t be a problem with today’s program.”
Upon saying that, Roger took Wendy’s hand and walked out with her.
“Stop!” Kane yelled from behind them.
Roger stopped in his tracks for a second but then continued to walk forward.
“I said stop!”
Unable to take it anymore, Kane took a few steps forward and suddenly grabbed Roger’s wrist.He forcibly separated the two, and, to Wendy’s astonishment, he pulled Roger into his arms.
Wendy’s mouth fell open, and her eyes widened in shock.
