Sure enough, everything unfolded just as Jiang Yuning had already expected the next day. News about An Yiqing and Jiang Yuning attending Jin Mingchen&x2019;s concert together was all over the internet. Whenever anyone searched for the keyword &x2018;An Yiqing&x2019;, countless photographs of Jiang Yuning and An Yiqing at Jin Mingchen&x2019;s concert together would pop up immediately.
Moreover, it was obvious that these were all An Yiqing&x2019;s doings because all the articles or photographs would describe both of them having a really closely knitted relationship or refer to them as sisters.
An Yiqing, at this point, was not only arrogant, but was also already very vindictive.
However, after last night&x2019;s test, Shen Yichen and Jiang Yuning already knew that An Yiqing was not that simple and she had other hidden intentions and motives behind her actions.
&x201C;When Vera comes back, I will call An Yiqing into my office with Vera present,&x201D; Shen Yichen promised Jiang Yuning over the phone. &x201C;I think that she is really disregarding the fact that you are her senior now.&x201D;
&x201C;Director Shen, I don&x2019;t think that would be necessary at the moment,&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied immediately. &x201C;I really want to know if she is simply using me to gain some attention or if she has any other bad intentions or motives. If she is only using me to gain some attention, then I can just let this matter go. However, if she has any ill intentions, then I would definitely not let her off so easily.&x201D;
&x201C;Aren&x2019;t you afraid that she will be plotting something against you?&x201D;
&x201C;I am not afraid. I will eventually know how to deal with the problem when it arises,&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied confidently. After all, what else could be worse than what she had experienced over the last five years?
&x201C;You said it yourself. Don&x2019;t come crying to me when something goes wrong.&x201D;
Cry? Jiang Yuning had never cried before, not even when she was being oppressed by Emperor Entertainment or when she was constantly bullied and taken advantage of by Shen Ru. Why would she cry or ask for help this time? Jiang Yuning was confident that she would be able to handle someone like An Yiqing easily.
Later that evening, Vera arrived back in Luo City after attending several meetings in Singapore. After sending some of the potential resources over to Shen Yichen, Vera drove to the Royal Dragon Villa immediately. When she arrived, she placed the stack of resources on the coffee table in the living room.
&x201C;This is a reward for you for behaving yourself and not giving me any trouble when I was gone for the past few days.&x201D;
Jiang Yuning smiled at Vera sheepishly because she had a guilty conscience. &x201C;What is this? Is this a potential endorsement from Singapore?&x201D;
&x201C;I have already met up and had a discussion with the other party. They would like to consider it for a little longer before making their final decision.&x201D;
&x201C;It&x2019;s okay even if you did not manage to secure the deal, Vera. Why do you look so worried?&x201D; Jiang Yuning asked with a puzzled expression on her face. &x201C;I know that you really want to be able to secure an international endorsement for me, but I believe that I still have a long way to go before I am finally worthy of an international endorsement. That is why it is alright even if you did not manage to get it for me.&x201D;
&x201C;There is nothing that you are not worthy of,&x201D; Vera countered immediately. &x201C;I just want to fight for the best that I can for you.&x201D;
Jiang Yuning could not help but smile as soon as she heard Vera&x2019;s words. In fact, she was very satisfied and she felt extremely grateful towards Vera.
&x201C;By the way, I have to tell you that a young man came and looked for me recently.&x201D;
After hearing Jiang Yuning&x2019;s words, Vera stood up from the sofa immediately before she asked, &x201C;What are you talking about now? Aren&x2019;t you afraid that the second young master Lu will find out about this? What are you trying to do now?&x201D;
&x201C;Just finish listening to what I am saying now! This innocent man tried to add the person whom he was interested in as a friend on her social media account but the other party did not realize it at all. In fact, the other party had misunderstood that this innocent man was interested in someone else and that is why she has been extremely defensive and cold towards him. Vera, you are really killing all of us,&x201D; Jiang Yuning said as she smiled at Vera. If Vera still could not understand what she was implying, then there was nothing else that she could do anymore.
Vera was just depriving herself and cutting off all of her senses and emotions.
&x201C;What do you mean?&x201D;
&x201C;I mean that the person that the film emperor is trying to get close to is you!&x201D; Jiang Yuning pointed out immediately. &x201C;Did you recently approve someone that you do not know on your social media account? Go and check out his circle of friends. You might be in for a huge surprise. Alright, you have already worked hard for the past few days. You had better go home and rest now. Second brother is coming home soon and I want to spend time alone with him!&x201D;
Vera was in shock and disbelief. Therefore, she could not even comprehend or take in anything that Jiang Yuning had just said.
After getting into the car and putting on her seatbelt, Vera suddenly remembered that there was indeed a stranger who had added her on social media. However, she did not even bother to look through his profile or his circle of friends at all.
&x201C;Get closer to me? Is he crazy? No way!&x201D; Vera muttered to herself.
So, what if he was the film emperor?
She would never be interested in anyone in the entertainment industry!
It had already been two days since Jin Mingchen&x2019;s concert and there was no other movement from An Yiqing. Therefore, it seemed as though An Yiqing had no other intentions and she was only trying to use Jiang Yuning to get some attention from the public and media.
However, Jiang Yuning believed that An Yiqing was only waiting for the right moment to act. After all, both Vera and Jiang Yuning knew that An Yiqing was only a pawn that someone was using to get back at Jiang Yuning.
The production team of had just released the official recording dates for the fifth and final issue of the program today. For the last two issues, the nine participants would be required to participate in an intensive recording schedule.
However, slightly after noon, the young paparazzo forwarded a video to Jiang Yuning. He asked her to hurry up and watch the contents of the video immediately.
Jiang Yuning quickly played the video and as soon as the video started, an old grandfather could be seen crying in front of the reporter&x2019;s camera as he said, &x201C;My grandson is missing&x2026;he is gone. I want to lodge a complaint&x2026;I want to lodge a report against the educational platform that was created by the artiste with the last name Jiang. My grandson was using that educational platform to receive education, but he suddenly disappeared mysteriously!&x201D;
&x201C;She&x2019;s a liar! The educational platform is a lie! Where did she take my grandson? I am just an old and lonely man with nothing in this world but my grandson. What am I supposed to do now that my grandson is missing? How am I supposed to keep living?&x201D;
At the end of the video, the old man continued crying as he struggled to wipe the tears off his face because it was really very unbearable for an old man like him.
&x201C;What is going on?&x201D; Jiang Yuning called and asked the young paparazzo immediately after watching the video.
&x201C;This video is trending all over the internet right now. Sister Yuning, I don&x2019;t know what happened with this old man but he is insisting that his grandson is missing after using the educational platform that you have set up to help your fans. Therefore, he is blaming our educational platform and accusing us of abducting his grandson! He is reprimanding you and saying that you are a liar and a bad person,&x201D; the young paparazzo replied angrily over the other end of the line. &x201C;You already have many competitors and rivals even without this incident. Now that there is an incident like this, the passers-by will definitely start scolding and cursing you again. The only reason why you created the educational platform was to help your fans, but now, you are about to get blamed for something that you did not do.&x201D;
&x201C;Young paparazzo, something this serious has happened. Right now, we should not be shirking out responsibilities and pushing this matter onto someone else. Instead, we should be verifying the authenticity of the video and everything that the old man is saying. If he is telling the truth, then this is a very serious matter,&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied immediately. &x201C;The first thing that we should do now is to verify this matter. Do you understand?&x201D;
&x201C;Alright then,&x201D; the young paparazzo replied as he nodded his head.
However, since the third issue of had just been broadcasted and since this matter involved Jiang Yuning, the matter escalated quickly and it was already trending on the hot search the minute the video was shared online.
#Jiang Yuning&x2019;s Educational Platform #
#Jiang Yuning Suspected of Human Trafficking #
Some of the keywords in the hot search were extremely sensitive and malicious, and the passers-by and Jiang Yuning&x2019;s haters continued adding fuel to the flames as they continued spreading the rumors maliciously.
[I feel like donating some money to this pitiful grandfather. I can already imagine how sad and upsetting it is for him to lose his grandson. What is the actual purpose of Jiang Yuning&x2019;s educational platform?]
[I think that we should not be commenting on this matter until everything has been verified.]
[I&x2019;ve already said that Jiang Yuning only created this educational platform to promote herself! This isn&x2019;t really an educational platform to help students. Look what happened now!]
[I hope that the grandfather can find his grandson as soon as possible. If this matter is really related to Jiang Yuning&x2019;s educational platform, then I will definitely unfollow her!]
[The old man is really very pitiful. I have a hunch that an accident or something really bad must have happened to his grandson.]
