&x201C;Sister Yuning, don&x2019;t go over there,&x201D; the young paparazzo quickly said as he stood in front of Jiang Yuning. &x201C;I will go over to check it out first, then inform you on what is going on.&x201D;
Jiang Yuning nodded her head and stood by the side of the road as she waited for the young paparazzo to scout the situation. After a short while, the young paparazzo returned to Jiang Yuning and said, &x201C;Sister Yuning, some of Qian Ge&x2019;s fans have met into a car accident and hit an old man. They are now arguing with the old man&x2019;s son. This has nothing to do with us. Let us go back to the bed and breakfast so you can rest.&x201D;
&x201C;Did Qian Ge come over to check the situation out?&x201D; Jiang Yuning asked immediately.
&x201C;Why would Qian Ge personally come over to deal with this kind of matter? I heard the driver of the car saying that she had merely bumped into the old man&x2019;s car slightly. Those few fans are now sitting by the side of the road looking very helpless,&x201D; the young paparazzo replied as he scratched his head. &x201C;The old man is lying on the road, covered in blood, and the old man&x2019;s son is demanding that the fans pay them tens of thousands. How would the fans be able to come up with that much money?&x201D;
As they were both trying to understand the situation, Huang Lingling suddenly appeared at the scene of the accident. Jiang Yuning and the young paparazzo initially thought that she was there to help the young fans resolve the matter. However, much to their surprise, Huang Lingling had only come by to advise Qian Ge&x2019;s fans on not letting anyone know that they were fans from Qian Ge&x2019;s fan club, as she felt that it would tarnish Qian Ge&x2019;s reputation if this matter was exposed to the public.
A few minutes later, Huang Lingling told the fans that she had already filed a police report of the car accident to the police. However, even after waiting for more than twenty minutes, there was no police officer in sight at all. Huang Lingling had already left the scene and the old man was still persistently lying on the ground as his son yelled at the young fans, demanding compensation for the damages and injury to the old man.
The few girls stood together in a group as they helplessly held hands because they did not know what to do.
&x201C;If Huang Lingling really did make a police report, I will cut my head off and offer it to her,&x201D; the young paparazzo said sarcastically.
&x201C;Let us go over and have a look at the situation,&x201D; Jiang Yuning said as she started walking towards the crowd.
&x201C;Sister Yuning, those are fans that are supporting your enemy!&x201D; the young paparazzo yelled as he followed after Jiang Yuning.
Qian Ge&x2019;s fans would never have expected that the person who would appear before them when they were helpless and afraid would be Jiang Yuning instead of Qian Ge. It was ironic indeed, as Qian Ge was the one that they had always been loyal to and Jiang Yuning was the person that they hated the most right now.
As soon as Jiang Yuning approached the crowd, she quickly crouched down right next to the old man who was lying on the ground. When the old man&x2019;s son saw her approaching the old man, he quickly stepped forward and asked, &x201C;What are you trying to do?&x201D;
&x201C;I am a doctor. I want to check out the severity of his injuries,&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied.
&x201C;Go away. I do not want you to touch my father. Who knows if you are in cahoots with this group of girls over here?&x201D; the old man&x2019;s son, who was in his thirties, warned Jiang Yuning as he pointed his finger at her. &x201C;These girls are fans of a famous celebrity. No one is leaving this scene today until I get justice for my father. Do they think that they can escape after causing such serious injuries to my father?&x201D;
Jiang Yuning ignored the man&x2019;s warning and she proceeded to check the old man&x2019;s pulse. After checking his pulse, she laughed before she stood up and waved at Qian Ge&x2019;s fans. &x201C;Haven&x2019;t you guys made a police report yet?&x201D;
&x201C;No&x2026;we did not make the police report. We do not want to implicate Qian Ge or cause her any trouble,&x201D; one of the girls replied, still eager to maintain her loyalty towards Qian Ge.
&x201C;Is your precious Qian Ge even worried about you right now?&x201D; Jiang Yuning asked as she crossed her arms in front of her chest.
&x201C;Qian Ge had gone through a lot of difficulties before she finally got to where she is today. We cannot implicate her and cause her reputation to be tarnished because of us.&x201D;
There was really no cure for these young kids.
&x201C;There is nothing wrong with this old man at all! His complexion is perfectly fine and his pulse is perfectly normal. The only reason his son is able to threaten and blackmail you girls is because you are all so foolish and gullible. All you care about is protecting the reputation and image of your precious idol even at a crucial time like this.&x201D;
&x201C;My father was hit by their car and is now covered in blood. How could you dare say that he is perfectly fine?&x201D;
&x201C;If your father were to really be in a critical condition right now and covered in blood, wouldn&x2019;t it be considered premeditated murder since you are wasting time trying to extort money from these young girls instead of sending your father to the hospital to receive medical treatment?&x201D; Jiang Yuning asked as she looked at the man. &x201C;If they do not want to call the police, I will make the police report myself. Young paparazzo, pass me my cell phone please.&x201D;
&x201C;Here, Sister Yuning,&x201D; the young paparazzo quickly handed Jiang Yuning&x2019;s cell phone over to her.
&x201C;Weren&x2019;t you demanding for these girls to compensate you and your father? Since this is such a major accident, we should make a police report. Once the police officers arrive at the scene, they will be able to evaluate the situation and if you are lucky, these girls might even be sentenced to a few years in prison,&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied as she called the police immediately.
When the old man&x2019;s son saw that Jiang Yuning was making a police report on behalf of the fan girls, he quickly told Jiang Yuning, &x201C;Forget it. These girls can just compensate us ten thousand yuan and we will forget about this matter. I will personally send my father to the hospital.&x201D;
&x201C;No, no, no. We have to make the police report&x2026;how could we just forget it?&x201D; Jiang Yuning said as she pushed the man&x2019;s arm away. &x201C;This is a major car accident. We should definitely make a police report.&x201D;
The man suddenly realized that Jiang Yuning was persistent and would not budge at all. Since there were many onlookers who were starting to gather around them, he pointed his finger at Jiang Yuning and said, &x201C;Good. You are ruthless.&x201D;
The man then quickly helped the old man up and they quickly fled the scene.
&x201C;Wow! They were really just trying to blackmail these girls into paying them a sum of money!&x201D; the young paparazzo exclaimed. &x201C;Sister Yuning, how did you know that the old man was just faking his injuries?&x201D;
&x201C;His pulse and breathing were all normal. Moreover, there were some chicken feathers on the blood that was splattered all over him. What else could it be?&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied as she rolled her eyes. &x201C;This kind of syndicates specialize in targeting fan groups, knowing that young fans are foolish and easily deceived.&x201D;
Under most circumstances, the artistes implicated would usually want to keep things from the media and therefore, they would usually agree to settle by paying a certain sum of money.
That was also the reason why the syndicates were getting more and more courageous.
&x201C;Young paparazzo, bring these girls to see Huang Lingling. I am going back now,&x201D; Jiang Yuning instructed the young paparazzo as she kept her cell phone.
&x201C;But&x2026;Sister Yuning, these people hate us!&x201D;
&x201C;It is already night now. It would not be safe for these girls to walk on their own. Just treat it as if we are doing charity,&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied before she turned around and headed back to her bed and breakfast.
Although the young paparazzo was very reluctant, he followed Jiang Yuning&x2019;s instructions and approached the girls and said, &x201C;Come with me. I will bring you to meet Qian Ge&x2019;s agent. However, I am not sure if you would be able to meet Qian Ge personally. Today, you are lucky that Sister Yuning was nearby and decided to come over and help you. Otherwise, you would still be stuck here with the man who was trying to extort money from you girls. Of course, Sister Yuning did not do that to gain your appreciation or gratitude.&x201D;
The few fan girls&x2019; emotions were a complete mess at the moment because they had just gone through an extremely difficult and stressful ordeal.
Therefore, they did not say anything but quietly followed the young paparazzo to the hotel.
Very soon, the few fan girls were already standing in front of Huang Lingling&x2019;s hotel room.
As soon as Huang Lingling opened her room door, the expression on her face changed immediately. She quickly dragged the few girls into her hotel room and said, &x201C;What are you doing here? Has the matter already been resolved? Did you make a police report? Do you know that you could implicate Qian Ge and cause her reputation to be tarnished if this matter gets leaked out to the public?&x201D;
The few fan girls stared at Huang Lingling blankly and at that moment, all that they could feel was shock.
&x201C;Didn&x2019;t you say that you had already made a police report on our behalf?&x201D;
&x201C;How could I possibly make a police report? If this incident gets leaked out to the media and public, do you know how much effect this incident would have on Qian Ge? News articles such as Qian Ge&x2019;s fans caused a major accident that took away a person&x2019;s life&x2026;and so forth would be all over the media and internet. Do you know that those articles would cost Qian Ge her reputation? I know that you have all suffered too. Here, let me give you some money as a form of compensation for what you have to go through today,&x201D; Huang Lingling said as she took some money out from her purse and started to push it into the young girls&x2019; hands.
In fact, one of the girls was actually one of the founders of Qian Ge&x2019;s fan support club.
When she saw the money that Huang Lingling had placed in her hands, she laughed out loud before she threw the money directly at Huang Lingling&x2019;s face. &x201C;Do you think I really need this money? From now on, I am Jiang Yuning&x2019;s fan.&x201D;
After she spoke, she quickly removed the Qian Ge fan badge that she had been wearing the whole time and threw it directly on the ground. She then emptied all the fan letters and gifts that she had brought for Qian Ge from her backpack before she stormed out of Huang Lingling&x2019;s hotel room immediately&x2026;
