Chapter 41 The Young Boss of The Mullen Group As the door was pushed open, a choking smell of smoke hit her nostrils, causing her to cough violently. Ariella shot her a disdainful look and then scowled as she walked inside. Kisa was used to the way Ariella treated her. Compared to Ariella‘s cowering, she was much calmer. She took a quick glance at the room upon entering. The room was large, with many men and women inside. The women were dressed up in : fashionable and flamboyant dresses. They should all be actresses like Ariella. The men, on the other hand, all looked like dudes. One of the outstanding–looking men sitting in the middle, languid with a cigarette in his mouth, was half–squinting his eyes to size up Ariella. He had a playful smile on his face, which was unnerving to look at.
Recalling the information she had just found on the Internet, Kisa figured this guy should be Anthony Mullen, the only son of the Mullen family, a shrewd businessman and a subject of gossip. But rumor had it that he had some eccentricities and was vindictive, an extremely dangerous character.
“Hello, everyone. I‘m Ariella. I‘m sorry that I‘m late.” Ariella stood in the room and awkwardly introduced herself. She thought she had been in the entertainment industry for long enough to have earned a bit of fame. But no one paid any attention to her. Those who sang continued to sing, those who drank continued to drink, and those who talked and laughed continued to talk and laugh. A few people were even engaged in small talk.
“Who is she? I have never seen her before.” “I have never heard of her either. Not sure where she is from. Probably just some bit–part actress.”
Ariella stood awkwardly on the spot, her pretty face turning red. Seeing Ariella standing there in embarrassment and about to cry, Kisa sighed and dragged her to sit in a remote corner. At that moment, Anthony suddenly spoke up.
“Yo, pretty, I have an empty seat here. Come sit on my side.” As he spoke, he unceremoniously pushed the pretty woman next to him out of the way.
Ariella saw this and was overjoyed. She hurriedly broke free from Kisa‘s hand and flew over, her face even blushing with a touch of smugness, her earlier embarrassment vanishing.
Kisa had no choice but to follow her and stand behind Ariella in silence. At first, she did not have to come, but Ariella was nervous and had to drag her along. Now, she really looked out of place.
As soon as Ariella sat down, Anthony put his arm around her shoulder, his eyes glancing at her body, and he chuckled. “You are the second female lead who was suddenly promoted by GK executives?”
“Yes,” Ariella said excitedly, “You know about me, Mr. Mullen?” “Of course.” Looking at the excitement on Ariella‘s face, there was a flash of disappointment and boredom on Anthony‘s face. “It seems that Gilbert‘s taste is just so–so.” The sudden mention of Gilbert gave Kisa a chill. Gilbert is not here, is he?‘ she looked around
in a panic but did not see the man. ‘How could that be a coincidence? But what did Anthony mean when he said that? Why does it feel like he meant Gilbert has fallen for Ariella?‘
As she was thinking, Ariella suddenly threw her fur coat at her. “Ugly, carry it for me.”
Kisa subconsciously caught the coat. When she looked up, her eyes collided with Anthony‘s dark, seductive eyes, causing her heart to skip a beat.
