On the other hand, Vera was very reluctant to contact Xiao Chennan&x2019;s assistant after Jiang Yuning handed her the tea leaves that she had already prepared for him. Vera had to ask around to get Xiao Chennan&x2019;s assistant&x2019;s cell phone number so she could make a phone call to ensure that Xiao Chennan would be home when she dropped by to pass him the gift.
When Xiao Chennan&x2019;s assistant received the phone call from Vera and heard that she would be personally delivering the gift up to Xiao Chennan&x2019;s doorsteps, he was so excited that he was dancing with joy and excitement. Therefore, the rumors stating that Jiang Yuning was capable was indeed true.
Xiao Chennan&x2019;s assistant turned around to look at Xiao Chennan, who was still swimming in his own private pool, before he whispered quietly to Vera that Xiao Chennan would definitely be at home to receive the gift.
Vera brought the tea leaves with her as she drove herself and the young paparazzo to Xiao Chennan&x2019;s private residential area.
Along the way, the young paparazzo looked at the expression on Vera&x2019;s face and he could not help but ask, &x201C;Sister Vera, are you going to deliver gifts or kill someone? Why do I feel as though you are getting ready to kill someone?&x201D;
&x201C;Shut up and just continue watching your variety show,&x201D; Vera replied in a fierce and angry manner.
The young paparazzo pursed his lips together and he did not dare to speak further. He continued immersing himself in Jiang Yuning&x2019;s performance and wisdom in the episode of .
About half an hour later, the both of them finally arrived at Xiao Chennan&x2019;s doorsteps. At this time, the young assistant had already gone to the garden for a press conference call with the agency.
In order to give Xiao Chennan a pleasant surprise, the assistant did not tell him that Vera would be delivering a gift to him.
After hearing the doorbell, Xiao Chennan, who was merely dressed in a black bathrobe after his swim, went to open the door immediately. Xiao Chennan was stunned and he froze immediately upon finding Vera standing in front of his doorsteps.
Vera was also stunned and her face turned red immediately as she blushed out of embarrassment. The three of them were at a loss for words as they did not know how to react at that moment.
In the end, Vera broke the silence by holding the tea leaves up against the other party&x2019;s face before she said, &x201C;Yuning has asked me to deliver this to you. She hopes that Brother Nan would be kind enough to take care of her and be gracious towards her during the filming for the upcoming drama. Alright, we are leaving.&x201D;
After stuffing the bag of tea leaves into Xiao Chennan&x2019;s arms, Vera quickly dragged the young paparazzo along with her as they left.
Xiao Chennan was astounded.
When Xiao Chennan finally came to his senses, Vera and the young paparazzo had already left his villa.
Xiao Chennan&x2019;s assistant came running towards him immediately afterwards and when he saw Xiao Chennan dressed in merely a bathrobe with his chest exposed, he knew that it was a gone case&x2026;
&x201C;Brother Nan, can&x2019;t you just put on some clothes after your swim?&x201D;
&x201C;I am in the comforts of my own home&x2026;would I really need to do that?&x201D; Xiao Chennan asked his assistant as he held the bag of tea leaves in his hand.
&x201C;That&x2019;s also true, but&x2026;&x201D; This concerns your happiness for this lifetime! Now, Sister Vera would definitely think that you intentionally dressed in such a revealing manner even though you knew that she was going to pay you a visit. &x201C;Brother Nan, it was so difficult for me to finally fight for this opportunity for you to meet Sister Vera&x2026;&x201D;
It seems as though you have completely sealed off your path to Sister Vera&x2019;s heart this time.
&x201C;Why didn&x2019;t you inform me in advance?&x201D;
&x201C;I&x2026;I did not know that she would arrive so soon!&x201D; The young assistant was aggrieved as he had to attend to the conference call earlier.
Xiao Chennan did not say anything else and he merely took his bag of tea leaves into the living room before he sat down on the sofa. As he thought about the scene that had just occurred earlier, he felt that it was indeed very awkward and hilarious at the same time.
He would never have expected his third face-to-face contact with Vera to turn out this way.
That girl&x2026;how many faces did she have?
In fact, Vera did not have any time or energy to think about Xiao Chennan at all because as soon as she left his villa, she received a phone call from Shen Yichen informing her that Jiang Yuning was in trouble again.
In the midst of the airing of the third issue of , some of the fans had started voicing out their opinions and discontentment at Jiang Yuning and the production team.
Someone had supposedly exposed a social media account that was suspected to be Jin Mingchen&x2019;s second private account. The content that was exposed supposedly pictured the production team of as being sick and biased to a certain level. He said that the production team only favoured Jiang Yuning and showed a strong desire to portray Jiang Yuning as the only face of the program. Besides that, he even stated that even though the production team tried so hard to portray Jiang Yuning as the highly intelligent genius that she was, everything had actually been pre-planned and scripted.
In that social media account, Jin Mingchen also apparently claimed that his biggest regret was the fact that he actually participated in the recording of , especially because he was reprimanded and criticized so badly because of the episode that was broadcasted tonight.
Following the big expos&xE9;, Jin Mingchen&x2019;s fans quickly stepped up to show their love and support for their idol.
[I have already been very dissatisfied with the production crew for the longest time. They are constantly victimizing Brother Mingchen in every episode! First of all, they portray him as someone afraid of ghosts, then they portray him as a troublemaker. Last but not least, they revealed that he is not as intelligent as Jiang Yuning is. Finally, they portray him as someone who would betray and sell out his own teammates just for his own benefit! Is it really that important for the production team to lift Jiang Yuning up at the expense of the other participants?]
[There are supposed to be nine actively participating guests in the program, but why does it seem like the other eight participants are merely supporting characters in comparison to Jiang Yuning?]
[Since the production team is so disgusted and sick of our Mingchen, then why don&x2019;t they ask Jiang Yuning to shoot the entire program on her own? This is so sickening!]
[Sigh. Imagine how miserable our Mingchen must have felt to vent his frustrations on his second account?]
[Production team, do you guys have a conscience at all? How would our Mingchen have the heart to continue recording the program when he has been trampled like this all along?]
Of course, in this case, most of the people who responded to Jin Mingchen&x2019;s fans were just passers-by.
This was because the Ginger Candies were all more disciplined and controlled relatively strictly by the management team. The Ginger Candies were basically not allowed to go online to reprimand or start an argument with anyone else unnecessarily.
[After watching so many episodes of , don&x2019;t you already know how your Jin Mingchen is like? The production team did not set anything or anyone up, nor was the program scripted in any way! Jin Mingchen is just a coward who is afraid of ghosts and cannot even use his brains properly!]
[He is just baggage who holds back all of his team members. Why would he be so shameless to come out and criticize the production team in this manner? Moreover, he has crossed the line in this issue! How could he abandon his teammates like this?]
[This is so nauseating! Jin Mingchen really is a sissy.]
The arguments online went on for quite some time and worsened with every passing seconds.
Finally, some people spoke up, saying that they had also seen some of Qi Mo&x2019;s fans saying the exact same things. They hated the fact that their idol was merely a supporting character for someone else.
This added further confusion and drama to the situation and things got more complicated as fuel was added to the flame.
When Jiang Yuning finally heard the news, it was already nine o&x2019;clock that night.
Jiang Yuning received a phone call from Jin Mingchen, who was crying on the other end of the line. &x201C;Sister Yuning, I do not have a second social media account. That account really does not belong to me. You have to believe me.&x201D;
In fact, Jiang Yuning already knew what kind of person Jin Mingchen was after spending so much time with him. Although he was childish and mischievous, he was definitely not a two-faced person. Moreover, Jiang Yuning could discern that the second social media account definitely did not belong to Jin Mingchen from the tone and the words that were used in the ramblings.
&x201C;I do not believe the rumors.&x201D;
&x201C;Sister Yuning, my fans&x2026;I am sorry but I can&x2019;t control or stop what they are doing&x2026;&x201D;
&x201C;They are only reacting this way because they are upset and feel distressed for you, but they are doing it the wrong way,&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied. &x201C;Maybe I need to do some self-reflection too.&x201D;
&x201C;Sister Yuning, please don&x2019;t say that. I will feel even guiltier. Maybe&x2026;maybe I should just quit altogether. I really do not want to implicate you and drag you down like this.&x201D;
The poor boy was currently in a dilemma because he was sandwiched between pleasing his fans and not causing any unnecessary problems for Jiang Yuning.
Jiang Yuning could fully understand the fear that Jin Mingchen was feeling at this moment.
&x201C;Mingchen, do you trust me?&x201D; Jiang Yuning asked over the phone.
&x201C;Of course I trust you with all my heart, Sister Yuning. You are the smartest and kindest person I have ever met,&x201D; Jin Mingchen replied earnestly.
&x201C;Then let&x2019;s do this. Why don&x2019;t we request for the production team to postpone the recording for the next issue of ? I believe that we will be able to sort out and resolve this problem if we work together. We have already been recording together for two months now. I know what kind of person you are. Everything will turn out fine.&x201D;
&x201C;Sister Yuning, I really do not know what else I can do now. I feel so useless.&x201D;
Jin Mingchen was so depressed because he felt that it was unjust for his fans to be criticizing and reprimanding Jiang Yuning for no reason at all.
