If she had the time to be weak, she might as well use that time to plan for the future. Therefore, Jiang Yuning had never wasted any time or feelings on anyone else.
Lu Jingzhi&x2026; was the only exception.
What was even more ridiculous was that the moment that Fu Yahui; that is Ms. Ava announced that she was returning to China further develop her company, Millennium Entertainment, that is Huo Yuxi&x2019;s entertainment agency quickly released a picture of Huo Yuxi together with Fu Yahui. They even bought a large number of fake manuscripts in order to take this opportunity to eliminate the adverse effect brought about by Huo Yuxi&x2019;s involvement with a man that was already engaged.
Therefore, whenever someone tried to search for news about Huo Yuxi on Weibo or any other web pages, the following headlines would appear immediately:
As the hot search was bought, there was no real and substantial content in the manuscripts once they clicked on the headlines. All Millennium Entertainment wanted to do was to create enough diversion so that the public would be confused with the actual facts.
Huo Yuxi&x2019;s fans were even more dramatic. Previously, because of her involvement in breaking up another couple&x2019;s engagement, Huo Yuxi had been suppressed and ridiculed by not only the public but also her competitors. Now that there was news revealing Huo Yuxi&x2019;s wealthy family background, her fans were more active and enthusiastic than before.
&x201C;I had never expected that my favorite top actress would actually be this rich! She is a really humble and low-key person!&x201D;
&x201C;Those trashy and incompetent actresses cannot be compared to our Huo-Huo. Those who have said that our Huo-Huo was only trying to marry into a wealthy and higher-class family should just bomb themselves on the spot. Our Huo-Huo is just a low-key person, but she also comes from a wealthy family herself!&x201D;
&x201C;My favorite top actress is wealthy! If you are unhappy about it, just keep it to yourself.&x201D;
Speculations about Huo Yuxi&x2019;s birthright and family status flooded the internet throughout the entire afternoon. Millennium Entertainment&x2019;s had almost successfully turned Huo Yuxi into a low-key, hardworking, independent and inspirational young woman who did not depend on her family&x2019;s wealth to achieve anything that she wanted.
Huo Yuxi also had to put on an act to keep up with the news. When she received telephone interviews questioning her about her family, she replied them humbly and merely said, &x201C;Thank you for all the media attention that you have given me. I hope that everyone will respect the privacy of artistes. Please do not disturb my family&x2014;&x201D;
Wasn&x2019;t this indirectly admitting that she was the daughter of a wealthy family?
&x201C;Millennium Entertainment successfully labeled Huo Yuxi as Ms. Ava&x2019;s stepdaughter and that had already garnered incredible amount of attention from the media and the public. Huo Yuxi was so anxious to label herself as Ms. Ava&x2019;s daughter. Does she know that you are in fact Ms. Ava&x2019;s biological daughter?&x201D; Ku Jie asked curiously over the phone.
&x201C;Who wants to be her daughter?&x201D; Jiang Yuning did not hold back at all. She did not want someone who had abandoned her own family and child. What qualification did she have to be a mother? Moreover, she would never have expected that Fu Yahui would actually turn out to be Huo Yuxi&x2019;s stepmother. It was just like the old saying, &x2018;Birds of a feather would always flock together&x2019;.
It was a match to put the both of them together.
&x201C;Why did Fu Yahui show up in Luo City so arrogantly?&x201D;
&x201C;If Huo Yuxi does not know that her stepmother&x2019;s real name is Fu Yahui and if Fu Yahui had not expected Huo Yuxi to use her as a diversion to divert the negative attention away from herself, wouldn&x2019;t that be really interesting? Brother, please also help me to check what Fu Yahui did with the money that she had robbed the Jiang family of. If Huo Yuxi could create such a hype just because of her identity as her stepdaughter, then wouldn&x2019;t I be able to create an even bigger hype as her biological daughter? The media would be very lively when that happens.&x201D;
&x201C;I am looking into the situation now. I guess it wouldn&x2019;t be anything good. Otherwise, why would she change her name and also undergo plastic surgery?&x201D; Ku Jie sneered.
&x201C;It feels like there will be a show to watch soon,&x201D; Jiang Yuning said with an expression that seemed to suggest that the world was going to be in chaos soon. &x201C;I suddenly look forward to meeting Ms. Ava. I wonder how Huo Yuxi would react when she found out the truth.&x201D;
&x201C;Since Dongheng Enterprise is based in the States, I will go abroad for a few days to check it out and investigate thoroughly. When I am not around, make sure you take care of your own safety. Ask your lover to protect and take care of you,&x201D; Ku Jie said sarcastically.
&x201C;Don&x2019;t worry about me. I am a star that had already been blacklisted. What else can they do to me now?&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied coldly as she no longer cared about her own reputation.
Anyway, no one would be able to make her suffer now. No one would be able to make her cry. She would destroy anyone who stood in her way now.
The sky was filled with bright and shiny stars late at night.
At the mountain villa in the suburbs, Fu Yahui had just entered her villa when her assistant sent her all the news articles that had been released by Millennium Entertainment today.
After reading the articles, Fu Yahui was furious.
This was because there had been an agreement between Huo Yuxi and herself. Huo Yuxi could enter the entertainment industry and she would give her all the support that she needs to make it big, but the premise would be that Huo Yuxi cannot reveal anything about her family, and she should not expose Fu Yahui&x2019;s identity. However, this time, Huo Yuxi had not only advocated the fact that they were related but she had also shared a picture of them together.
Fu Yahui was extremely annoyed and she angrily dialed Huo Yuxi&x2019;s number.
&x201C;Mom?&x201D; Huo Yuxi had already expected Fu Yahui to call her. After all, she made an extremely bold move today.
&x201C;You still treat me as your mother? Why did you expose our relationship to the public without my approval? I have already told you that you could do anything you like in the entertainment industry but you are not supposed to reveal anything about your family. What do you think you are doing?&x201D; Fu Yahui screamed at Huo Yuxi. &x201C;Do you know how much trouble this would cause me?&x201D;
&x201C;Mom&x2026; we are really mother and daughter anyway. So, the media did not expose anything that is untrue. Furthermore, I am really drowning in all these scandals that I am involved in lately, so I could really use your support right now. Please don&x2019;t blame me and be mad at me, okay?&x201D;
This was because Huo Yuxi really did not know the relationship between Fu Yahui and Jiang Yuning.
Fu Yahui had changed her name and surname in the past, just so she could escape any liability and responsibility towards the Jiang family. Now that Huo Yuxi had exposed her identity, she was thrown out in the open again. This was ridiculous.
&x201C;I will call your entertainment agency later and withdraw all those articles. Huo Yuxi, I am extremely disappointed in you.&x201D;
Fu Yahui hung up as soon as she finished her sentence. Her mind was blank as she was extremely confused at the moment.
What should she do if Jiang Yuning came looking for her or if Jiang Yuning decided to reveal everything to the public?
No, she had to think through it and make plans in advance. She could not sit here and wait for it to just happen. After all, it took her a long time before she finally climbed to this position. She could not let Jiang Yuning&x2019;s existence affect everything that she had worked for.
Huo Yuxi did not expect Fu Yahui to get so angry and throw such a big fit. She had also hesitated initially when her agency proposed to use this method as a diversion. However, after much consideration, she finally decided to go ahead with the idea because Fu Yahui had always been good to her. Therefore, Huo Yuxi gave her consent to her agency to go ahead and publicize her relationship with Fu Yahui.
Who knew that&x2014;
&x201C;Sure enough, it must be because I am not her biological daughter. I was just using her to create a little diversion away from my scandal. What is the big deal?&x201D;
Huo Yuxi did not know how much trouble she had created. She also did not know that the image of the low-key, wealthy daughter that she had created for herself would collapse again very soon.
Everything was unfolding just as Jiang Yuning and Ku Jie expected. Huo Yuxi really did not know the relationship between her stepmother and Jiang Yuning&x2026;
