At seven o&x2019;clock at night in the presidential suite of Dynasty Hotel, Bai Tingzhang and Ling Fei had already arrived at the hotel.
Bai Tingzhang was wearing a light blue handmade suit and a limited-edition Rolex watch. Even the cufflinks he was wearing were customized and personalized, and from a British royal brand that was very exclusive to a select few. He was emitting a prestigious and wealthy aura all over the room.
On the other hand, Ling Fei was wearing a long blue dress to accentuate her fairy-like reputation and her wrists, neck, and ears were adorned with diamonds.
What was even more important was the fact that both of them chose to dress in the same colour code to reflect and highlight the closeness and intimate relationship that they shared to the people attending the banquet.
&x201C;Oh, my goodness! I cannot believe that the actress that my family loves the most is actually our sister-in-law! Young master Bai is really very fortunate!&x201D;
The six or seven other people present at the banquet were all Jiang Yuning and Bai Tingzhang&x2019;s junior high school classmates. Although their families were not as wealthy or established, they were also from relatively comfortable families. However, in comparison to the prestigious families, they still had a long way to go. Therefore, they would stop at nothing whenever they had the opportunity to suck up to Bai Tingzhang and create a good impression for themselves.
&x201C;That&x2019;s right. Sister-in-law is really so beautiful. Moreover, sister-in-law graduated from a famous theatre and art college, unlike that person&x2026;&x201D;
At this point, everyone was searching the room for Jiang Yuning.
&x201C;Why isn&x2019;t Jiang Yuning here? Is she&x2026;afraid that she would be beaten hands down by sister-in-law if we compared the both of them? Is that why she does not dare to show her face?&x201D;
&x201C;How can someone like Jiang Yuning even be compared to sister-in-law?&x201D;
&x201C;Her family went bankrupt and lost everything that they had overnight. I wonder how many people Jiang Yuning had slept with to get to where she is today? How could she be compared to our sister-in-law?&x201D;
The seven or eight people present had already chosen their sides and revealed their ugly and disgusting faces just to impress Bai Tingzhang.
At this time, the young waiter who was serving them in the suite really wanted to laugh out loud when he heard their discussion, but he had to maintain his professionalism.
Who gave these people the courage?
&x201C;Sister-in-law, you must give each of us an autograph later!&x201D;
&x201C;That&x2019;s right, sister-in-law. My whole family loves you so much because you are so beautiful. You are exceptionally beautiful today!&x201D;
&x201C;Even if there are ten Jiang Yunings in this world, they cannot be compared to you.&x201D;
The few of them continued singing praises of Ling Fei as they criticized Jiang Yuning and because she was still too young, Ling Fei accepted the compliments that these people were giving her without even knowing that their compliments were only empty words without any sincerity.
&x201C;This Jiang Yuning really does not know how to be punctual at all. How could she make so many of us wait for her arrival?&x201D;
It was just as someone was complaining when the door of the presidential suite was opened by one of the waiters. At this time, everyone turned around to look as Jiang Yuning walked into the presidential suite accompanied by Vera.
&x201C;Sorry I am late.&x201D;
Everyone was shocked when Jiang Yuning suddenly appeared at the banquet. This was because although they had not seen Jiang Yuning for so many years, she had not changed at all. Even though the Jiang family had already gone bankrupt, she still carried an aura that made her looked extremely elegant even amidst the simplicity, and this made Ling Fei looked extremely gaudy in comparison.
Jiang Yuning&x2019;s simplicity made Ling Fei looked too showy.
&x201C;Eh. Is Ling Fei also here?&x201D;
Jiang Yuning asked somewhat knowingly.
&x201C;I didn&x2019;t expect you and Tingzhang to be classmates,&x201D; Ling Fei replied as she held tightly onto Bai Tingzhang&x2019;s arm. &x201C;However, I only realized later that the Jiang family had already gone bankrupt a few years ago. I feel so bad for you. You were the young lady of such a prestigious family and it must have been difficult to hit rock bottom.&x201D;
&x201C;Hey, Jiang Yuning, was the scandal about you and that director true? The news that was trending all over the internet at one point?&x201D;
At this time, one of Jiang Yuning&x2019;s classmate suddenly asked because he wanted to get into Bai Tingzhang&x2019;s good books. Therefore, he quickly mirrored Ling Fei&x2019;s actions and started humiliating Jiang Yuning.
&x201C;I&x2019;ve heard that the entertainment industry is very chaotic and at the same time, money can come and go quickly for people like you. You only need to spend one night with anyone and you will receive ten million yuan credited into your bank account the next day.&x201D;
The few of them started laughing out loud as they exchanged glances with one another.
And at this time&x2026;
&x201C;Is that so? Well, I do not know much about that, but perhaps you could ask Ling Fei about it,&x201D; Jiang Yuning retorted as she smiled. &x201C;And&x2026;of course we earn money faster than most of you who have to work from nine to five every day, and then squeeze in the bus to get home in time for dinner. Moreover, there are also some people who spends countless amounts of money and effort on some celebrities but never gets anything in return anyway&x2026;&x201D;
&x201C;Jiang Yuning, we know that your own life is very chaotic and you might be disappointed about it, but why would you ridicule your own classmate here?&x201D;
Jiang Yuning sat down and leaned against the back of the sofa before she looked at the five men and two women seated before her with an amused expression on her face. She smiled even more brightly before she started talking again. &x201C;The entertainment circle is indeed very chaotic. Let me share some gossip with all of you now. There is this young actress, L, who likes the film emperor in the entertainment circle very much. She tries very hard to get his attention all the time, but to no avail. Therefore, when the film emperor got the role of the first male lead in the drama, she quickly put pressure on her team and her gold sponsor to pressure and threaten the director to replace the first female lead that the director had already chosen, just so she could take on the role of the first female lead instead. The director refused and rebuked her before telling her that she would never be casted in any other big drama productions in this lifetime. As a result&x2026;&x201D;
&x201C;I thought that this would be the end of this matter. However, little did I know that this young actress would actually run to the person that she had treated as her back up all along and ask him to get justice for her.&x201D;
&x201C;This spare tyre, who is also her gold sponsor, is also a very magnanimous person. He is very open-minded and he forgave her immediately. He also puts L on the pedestal continuously, and continues using his funds to try and get her anything that she wants&x2026;well, of course I am not one to judge what a person wants to do or how a couple wants to start a relationship. It&x2019;s just embarrassing that this matter had already spread and become common news within the entertainment circle.&x201D;
After she was done speaking, Jiang Yuning looked around to observe the expressions of the people sitting opposite her. At this point, Ling Fei was already on the verge of exploding.
&x201C;Hm. Sure enough, the entertainment industry is as chaotic as we thought it would be.&x201D;
&x201C;Yes. Isn&x2019;t this gossip that you are telling us about right now as disgusting as the scandals that you were involved in anyway?&x201D;
&x201C;No, no, no. I could never be as shrewd as her. Am I right, Miss Ling?&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied, immediately exposing the identity of the person L whom she was talking about.
The people around them gasped in shock but closed their mouths immediately after seeing the expression on Ling Fei&x2019;s face.
&x201C;Jiang Yuning&x2026;do you not want to continue being in the entertainment industry anymore?&x201D; At this time, Bai Tingzhang, who had been silent all along, suddenly asked Jiang Yuning in a very cold manner. &x201C;Do you believe that I can make you disappear from the entertainment industry tomorrow?&x201D;
The atmosphere became very tense all of a sudden.
Everyone looked at Bai Tingzhang in horror because they could clearly sense his anger and frustration.
In their opinion, Jiang Yuning was already a gone case.
However, what was even more surprising at this time was that despite the other party&x2019;s rage, Jiang Yuning was not afraid but merely asked him, &x201C;Who do you think you are?&x201D;
&x201C;Your father is now facing a critical moment in the business circle as he is trying to preserve his empire. What do you think he would do if he finds out that you are in a relationship with an actress in the entertainment industry? Don&x2019;t you think that he will make Ling Fei disappear from this world immediately?&x201D;
&x201C;Bai Tingzhang, I can&x2019;t control you if you want to be a suck up, but you are just too much.&x201D;
As soon as Ling Fei heard this sentence, she got up from the sofa and walked over to Jiang Yuning immediately. She raised her hand in an attempt to slap Jiang Yuning but at this time, the waiter who was standing next to Jiang Yuning caught hold of Ling Fei&x2019;s wrist immediately. &x201C;Madam, please do not get too excited.&x201D;
&x201C;Let go of me!&x201D;
However, at this time, Jiang Yuning suddenly stood up and gave Ling Fei a tight slap across her face. &x201C;Was this what you were trying to do to me?&x201D;
Everyone was in shock because they had never expected Jiang Yuning to be so brazen.
She actually did that in front of Bai Tingzhang!
&x201C;Why are you making such a big fuss?&x201D; Jiang Yuning asked as she looked at the people around her.
&x201C;Young master Bai is right here!&x201D; someone could not help but reminded Jiang Yuning.
