On the other hand, thanks to the sponsorship and endorsement by Xiya Hotel, An Yiqing finally secured a spot in the variety program.
After Shen Yichen had seen the outcome of the audition, he handed the contract over to An Yiqing&x2019;s agent before he stated, &x201C;You know how important this contract is to An Yiqing. You should also be clear that the biggest sponsor who has helped An Yiqing behind the scenes is none other than Xiya Hotel. This was all arranged by Jiang Yuning and Vera to help Yiqing secure a spot in the program, to show their gratitude.&x201D;
&x201C;I understand,&x201D; An Yiqing&x2019;s agent replied as he nodded.
&x201C;Since you already understand what I am trying to tell you, then you can leave now,&x201D; Shen Yichen replied without explaining any further.
However sometimes, there was truly no limit to how shameless or ungrateful a person could be.
This was because as soon as An Yiqing&x2019;s agent stepped out of Shen Yichen&x2019;s office, he was immediately stopped by Hua Xin&x2019;s agent, who had been waiting for him in Hua Xin&x2019;s resting room all along.
Hua Xin did not even ask before she grabbed the contract that An Yiqing&x2019;s agent had in his hands. &x201C;Wow. Looks like someone has just secured a new resource.&x201D;
&x201C;Sister Hua Xin&x2026;didn&x2019;t you agree that you would be magnanimous and that you would not take any more of Yiqing&x2019;s resources?&x201D; Lin Xuan asked in a helpless manner.
&x201C;Lin Xuan, it must have been really difficult for you to finally secure this deal and obtain this contract. If I remember correctly, the biggest sponsor behind this variety program is none other than Xiya Hotel&x2026;&x201D; Hua Xin did not ask the question directly but instead, she was beating around the bush. &x201C;So&x2026;is Jiang Yuning the one helping Yiqing behind the scenes?&x201D;
Lin Xuan took a deep breath before he nodded his head. &x201C;Yes, I heard that Jiang Yuning was the one who helped Yiqing secure this resource.&x201D;
Hua Xin chuckled before she held out the contract, as though she was about to give it back to Lin Xuan. However, as soon as Lin Xuan reached out his hand to take the contract, Hua Xin intentionally dropped the document onto the ground. &x201C;Let&x2019;s do it this way then. I want you to tell An Yiqing that I was the person who helped her to secure a spot in this variety show. If you tell her that, then I promise that I will not make life difficult for you two and I will not attempt to steal any of An Yiqing&x2019;s resources in future.&x201D;
&x201C;Sister Hua Xin&x2026;&x201D;
&x201C;Will you do it or not?&x201D;
Did he have any other choice?
&x201C;I know what I have to do.&x201D;
&x201C;You are a smart man. I know that you will definitely do the right thing,&x201D; Hua Xin replied before she sat back down on the sofa with her arms crossed in front of her chest. After that, Hua Xin nudged towards the door, signalling for Lin Xuan to leave immediately.
In fact, sometimes the agent could not be blamed for being selfish or despicable. This was because they would always be dragged into the deepest and darkest transactions in the entertainment industry and they only way that they would be able to survive would be to cooperate with the stronger party.
Everyone had to put themselves first in the entertainment industry. This was very common in the entertainment circle.
When Shen Yichen told Lin Xuan that Jiang Yuning was in fact the one who had paved the way for An Yiqing to secure the variety show, he was trying to tell An Yiqing that Jiang Yuning had already done her part to appease her and thank her for her support. Hua Xin, on the other hand, was only trying to brainwash An Yiqing and manipulate her into thinking that Jiang Yuning was heartless so that An Yiqing would join her camp to deal with Jiang Yuning.
Lin Xuan did not care which side An Yiqing would be on because he felt that neither Hua Xin nor Jiang Yuning were good people anyway. All that he cared about was securing more deals and resources for his artiste.
Therefore, Lin Xuan did as Hua Xin had asked him to when he informed An Yiqing about the variety show. &x201C;You are really lucky to be able to secure a spot in this variety show. This programme is really a blessing for a newcomer like you. Sister Hua Xin has really helped you a lot behind the scenes. You should be grateful and remember to thank her the next time you see her.&x201D;
An Yiqing was extremely happy and excited as she held the contract in her hands. &x201C;I understand. I really did not expect Sister Hua Xin to be the one who would help me in the end.&x201D;
&x201C;We will go and sign the contract with the other party early in the morning tomorrow so make sure you go home and rest earlier today,&x201D; Lin Xuan replied, without feeling even the slightest hint of guilt for lying to An Yiqing.
This was because he was absolutely convinced that no one in the entertainment circle was clean, be it Hua Xin or Jiang Yuning. In his eyes, both of them could only get this far in the entertainment industry because they had others backing them up and that was the reason why they would trample on others to show their own superiority.
On the other hand, Hua Xin was confident that she was raising a poisonous snake that would one day run out of its cage and hurt herself as she tried to harm others. This way, she would be killing two birds with one stone.
Ku Jie had been busy investigating about the gold sponsor who had been backing Hua Xin up all these while and after much effort, he finally discovered some information about the gold sponsor.
During her early years, Hua Xin had always been involved with a rich man who would always back her up in her career progression. However, after a short while, Hua Xin eventually met her true love within the entertainment industry and ended things with her gold sponsor after getting married to her true love. She eventually got pregnant and gave birth to a son after getting married, but as she soon discovered her husband cheating on her when she was breastfeeding, she divorced her husband out of anger and had since gotten involved with her gold sponsor again.
&x201C;Brother Ku Jie, this woman looks so glamorous and beautiful on the surface, but she is in fact so rotten and broken inside. Isn&x2019;t it meaningless to be living this kind of life?&x201D; the young paparazzo asked Ku Jie as he looked through Hua Xin&x2019;s information. He could not help but sigh out of pity.
&x201C;Isn&x2019;t this what we commonly see in the entertainment industry nowadays? The more glamorous or fancy the artistes seem on the surface, the more desolated they are behind the scenes,&x201D; Ku Jie replied as he took the document from the young paparazzo&x2019;s hand. He glanced at the information before he used a red pen to mark a big &x2018;X&x2019; on the section regarding Hua Xin&x2019;s resume and qualifications.
&x201C;Sister Yuning is still the best. I would like to believe that there are still other artistes in the entertainment industry who are trying their best and giving their everything to achieve their own hopes and dreams, just like Sister Yuning!&x201D;
&x201C;The only reason why your Sister Yuning entered the entertainment industry in the first place was because she had to feed her family,&x201D; Ku Jie replied as he knocked the young paparazzo on his head.
&x201C;It doesn&x2019;t matter! It has already been five years since Sister Yuning entered the entertainment industry but her personality and character had not conformed to the dark and twisted ways of the entertainment circle. That is why Sister Yuning is truly my idol.&x201D;
Ku Jie could only shake his head when he looked at the young paparazzo who was acting like a fool. However, he also felt honored whenever his younger sister was loved and praised by her fans.
&x201C;By the way, Brother Ku Jie, how should we deal with this man?&x201D;
&x201C;How should we deal with him?&x201D; Ku Jie sneered as he looked at the young paparazzo. &x201C;We can just send his wife pictures of him being intimate with Hua Xin. It would be better if we can find out if he had a second or third mistress so that we can just send out all of the photographs and information at once and get rid of this gold sponsor in an instant.&x201D;
&x201C;Hahaha. I bet this woman would never imagine that X Society is in fact Sister Yuning&x2019;s maiden home.&x201D;
&x201C;Stop smirking and go get your work done already!&x201D; Ku Jie replied as he knocked on the desk.
As Jiang Yuning&x2019;s brother, he would not interfere in Jiang Yuning&x2019;s development or anything that she wanted to do, nor would he meddle in any of her plans for her future. However, he would never allow anyone to bully or insult his sister.&x201D;Access ReadReadReadNovelFull.live if you like watching manga,comics.
Sorry, but there are two huge mountains behind Jiang Yuning.
It was already noon.
At this time, Jiang Yuning and the other eight participants were busy trying to build the foundation of the house but no matter how hard they tried, the base would not stay because they were building on sand. Therefore, after much discussion, the nine of them came up with a solution. They decided that they would gather all the large rocks that they could find and move it over to their base, then use the rocks to support the base instead.
They decided to use bamboo shoots and some wooden branches that they could find in the woods because they were not allowed to chop down any trees.
Even though they had already spilt and allocated the job to simplify and accelerate the process, it was already evening when they were done with the preparations.
At this time, the sea water was already rising and showing signs of high tide, but all that they managed to do was to lay down the foundation of the house.
&x201C;Oh no! The sea water is already rising&x2026;&x201D; Xu Beishen exclaimed as she was crouching by the beach to grill fishes for everyone. This was because the sea water was in fact rising at a rate that was visible to the naked eye.
&x201C;This mission is really too difficult! At this rate, the sea water will already be at knee-level within the next hour,&x201D; Qi Mo could not help but complained as he wiped the sweat off his forehead.
&x201C;It is okay. Even if we do not manage to finish building the house, the least that we can do is to build a bamboo table so that we would not be soaking wet tonight. Do you guys agree with me?&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied as she placed her hands on her hips. &x201C;Beishen, make use of this opportunity and the remaining time that you have left to grill more fishes for everyone. Mingchen, try to continue catching as many fishes as you can.&x201D;
&x201C;I agree with you, Sister Yuning! As long as all of us are together, I do not mind braving the wind and the cold together with all of you,&x201D; Jin Mingchen replied in a sincere manner.
&x201C;That&x2019;s true. Anyway, we are all already in a very miserable state now. Could it get any worse than this?&x201D; Xu Beishen replied as she laughed.
&x201C;Come on, let&x2019;s do this! Let&x2019;s just hope that it will not rain tonight!&x201D;
Everyone felt encouraged and cheered up almost immediately.
This time, the theme of was none other than friendship!
