&x201C;Alright then, although I still hope that you can help me figure out if An Yiqing has any other ulterior motives.&x201D; Even though Jiang Yuning agreed to lend a helping hand to An Yiqing, this did not mean that she had already let go of her cautions against An Yiqing.
&x201C;I will verify the situation for you,&x201D; Vera replied as she nodded her head.
Vera did not know why but she felt as though Jiang Yuning&x2019;s dislike for An Yiqing was very obvious and apparent. Was it simply because of An Yiqing&x2019;s agent?
In fact, Jiang Yuning did not dislike her because of her agent. It was simply because Jiang Yuning could not describe the feeling that she had when she interacted with An Yiqing. It was not as simple as a mere like or dislike for the person, although An Yiqing&x2019;s agent was clearly not a simple person. Who would know what kind of person An Yiqing would eventually turn out to be, since she was placed under the care and influence of this kind of person?
Jiang Yuning and Vera arrived at Guangying Media early the next day as promised.
However, An Yiqing and her agent did not show up that day because they had already left to attend another audition.
&x201C;An Yiqing has asked me to pass you a message. She says that this matter is between her and Hua Xin and she does not want to involve you in their squabble. She has also asked me to thank you for everything,&x201D; Shen Yichen said as soon as he saw Jiang Yuning walking into his office. &x201C;So, you don&x2019;t have to take this matter to heart. I will try to arrange some resources for An Yiqing in future to compensate her.&x201D;
&x201C;I want to know more about Hua Xin&x2019;s background,&x201D; Jiang Yuning suddenly said as she looked at Shen Yichen.
&x201C;She has already been signed for a very long time and has already accumulated a lot of interest under Guangying Media. She used to top all the charts in her glory days, but after that, she got married and had a child before she eventually filed for a divorce. By that time, she had already missed out on the prime and most important years in her career. That is why she is trying to regain all the power and fame that she has lost in the past. She is just jealous that you are so popular nowadays,&x201D; Shen Yichen started explaining. &x201C;She has also gotten involved with a magnate recently but I do not know much about the man or their relationship.&x201D;
&x201C;I see. Alright then. Director Shen, I really do not want to implicate any innocent people in this matter between Hua Xin and myself. Therefore, if you can think of any ways to help An Yiqing, please do not hesitate to do so.&x201D;
&x201C;I wanted to transfer some of your variety show resources over to her but there is no way for me to do that. The production team has designated you and only you as their preference and there is no other way to do it,&x201D; Shen Yichen replied as he shrugged.
Jiang Yuning was very widely recognized in the entertainment industry nowadays, especially in variety shows and endorsement activities. Therefore, many people had already come knocking on the door to invite her to participate in their variety programs or activities and they refused to acknowledge anyone else but Jiang Yuning because they felt that she was irreplaceable. They were even willing to wait for Jiang Yuning&x2019;s schedule to clear up so that they would have the opportunity to work with her.
&x201C;I do not mind helping her or giving her any resources but at this time, I think that it is best if you do not link us both together. That would be the best way to protect her,&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied. &x201C;I can also provide her with financial support behind the scenes but not out in the open. If Hua Xin finds out that I am on close terms with An Yiqing and that I am trying to help her carve out her career path, then Hua Xin would definitely bully her more often.&x201D;
&x201C;I understand what you mean,&x201D; Shen Yichen replied as he nodded.
What they meant was that the more they reacted to what Hua Xin was doing, the more she would feel as though she had already succeeded. At that time, she would definitely do even more bad things to hurt An Yiqing.
However, if it seemed as though Jiang Yuning was turning a blind eye to whatever Hua Xin was doing to An Yiqing, then Hua Xin would probably get bored of it and just stop whatever she was doing.
&x201C;Just let me know if there is anything you need help with. As you know, I have some money nowadays&x2026;&x201D;
Shen Yichen sneered before he replied, &x201C;Do you think that I would hesitate to ask you?&x201D;
Jiang Yuning smiled before she left Guangying Media with Vera.
&x201C;Have you made concessions regarding An Yiqing?&x201D;
Jiang Yuning shook her head before she replied, &x201C;I still cannot explain to you what I feel about An Yiqing. In the past, when I first met you, I could tell from the beginning that you are kind even though you were trying to harm me at the start&x2026;but with An Yiqing&x2026;I am not so sure. Anyway, Vera, I believe that there is no need to implicate any innocent people in this matter. Therefore, if I could, I will do anything I can to help her.&x201D;
Vera agreed with Jiang Yuning immediately. &x201C;I think that you are making the right decision. We do not need to stand out and make everything public. There is no need to complicate things any further.&x201D;
&x201C;Alright then, please ask my brother to do a thorough background check on Hua Xin just in case. It is better for us to be well-prepared for whatever comes our way.&x201D;
&x201C;Stop stressing yourself out with all this negativity. I will tell you some good news now. is already scheduled to be broadcasted in mid-November. I believe that they are aiming to grab some of the awards at the end of the year. The role that you played in the drama should be able to accumulate some good points and reputation for you.&x201D;
&x201C;I am really looking forward to it!&x201D; After all, Jiang Yuning really worked hard for that drama and it was only natural for her to be eager for the public to finally meet Lin Ping&x2019;er.
Later that afternoon, Vera accompanied Jiang Yuning to her music lessons.
She realized that Jiang Yuning had some musical talents and she had a really good voice. After the lesson, she asked Jiang Yuning: &x201C;So, is the song that you wrote for the second young master Lu complete already?&x201D;
&x201C;It is almost done.&x201D;
&x201C;Would you like to sing it for me first so that I can evaluate it for you?&x201D;
&x201C;Dream on!&x201D; Jiang Yuning smirked.
Later in the evening, both of them headed to the shooting range once again. On the way to the shooting range, they received a phone call from Shen Yichen: &x201C;There is a popular variety show with pretty good exposure that is looking for guests to star in their program now. I heard that Xiya Hotel is one of the main sponsors of the program. Perhaps there is something that you could do to help An Yiqing after all.&x201D;
&x201C;You can just email the details to Vera. She will handle this matter.&x201D;
Shen Yichen hung up the phone and at this time, An Yiqing happened to just return to the company after her audition.
From the downcast expression on both of their faces, Shen Yichen already knew that things did not go well.
&x201C;You are back?&x201D;
&x201C;Director Shen&x2026;Sister Yuning&x2026;&x201D; An Yiqing wanted to ask if Jiang Yuning had already came to the company earlier.
&x201C;I have already passed your message to her. You can be rest assured.&x201D; After that, Shen Yichen did not say anything else because he had not finalized anything with Jiang Yuning yet and he did not want to make any empty promises to An Yiqing. Therefore, he did not tell her that Jiang Yuning was going to pull strings for her behind the scenes.
After listening to Shen Yichen&x2019;s words, An Yiqing looked a little lost. &x201C;Alright then. I was afraid that I would be a burden to her.&x201D;
&x201C;There will be an event that will take place in the next two days. I will personally bring you there to speak to the person-in-charge. I hope that you will go home and prepare for the upcoming event.&x201D;
&x201C;Okay.&x201D; After that, An Yiqing walked out of Shen Yichen&x2019;s office together with her agent.
At this time, An Yiqing&x2019;s agent read her train of thoughts immediately. &x201C;It seems as though Jiang Yuning did not take you seriously at all. Did you really think that you would be able to enter her circle so easily just because you offended Hua Xin on her behalf? You are really too na&xEF;ve!&x201D;
An Yiqing did not reply but she merely bit her lower lips silently as she felt very wronged and betrayed.
This was because she really did not expect that Jiang Yuning would not offer her any help at all.
&x201C;I will go and buy a gift so that you can bring it along with you when you go and apologize to Hua Xin tonight. Let this be a valuable lesson to you this time. If you have any plans in future, talk to me about it first before you take any actions. Don&x2019;t be a smart ass. Do you understand?&x201D;
An Yiqing held back her tears as she nodded her head. &x201C;I understand now, Brother Xuan.&x201D;
&x201C;It is not worth it at all.&x201D;
But little did they know that Jiang Yuning would in fact be the reason behind An Yiqing&x2019;s upcoming resource.
Two days later, officially announced the original founding and creative background of the drama and this created a huge commotion and a flood of jealousy amongst all the other artistes in the entertainment industry.
Who would have known that what everyone had assumed to be merely a small-scale national drama would in fact be aired on national television?
Jiang Yuning was very fortunate indeed. With her 4.0 rated acting skills, she was able to act beside the film emperor, Xiao Chennan, and this drama would even be aired on national television! She was really very blessed. It seemed as though she would be able to turn her luck around very soon.
Yao Fan even made a phone call to Jiang Yuning to congratulate her little disciple. &x201C;I really have to admit that you are damn lucky!&x201D;
&x201C;Hahaha&x2026;so, how far have you gone with Brother Song nowadays?&x201D; Jiang Yuning laughed, as she can only be so completely relaxed in front of her own true friends whom she could trust.
&x201C;I could go on talking for three days and nights without taking a break if you really want to talk about him&x2026;&x201D;
