&x201C;No problem.&x201D; The police officers felt very compassionate towards Xiao Zhou and his grandfather and they agreed to his request immediately.
As soon as he received the consent, Xiao Zhou went to his room immediately to clean it up a little and so that he could change into a new set of clothes. He was already sweating profusely at this time because he was feeling extremely nervous.
&x201C;Can we start recording now?&x201D; the police officer asked.
Xiao Zhou grabbed the corner of his T-shirt before he finally gained the courage to nod his head and reply, &x201C;Yes, we can.&x201D;
Subsequently, one of the police officers took out his cell phone and adjusted the camera lens before clicking on the record button.
&x201C;Don&x2019;t be so nervous. Calm down&x2026;&x201D; the police reminded Xiao Zhou gently.
&x201C;Hello everyone. I am Xiao Zhou. I believe that all of you probably do not know who I am, but you will definitely know who my grandfather is. My grandfather is none other than the old man who was looking for his grandson in the video that appeared on the Internet two days ago.&x201D;
&x201C;Right now, I am recording this video because I want everyone to know that I did not go missing. In fact, I left my house a few days ago to work part-time at a factory in a neighbouring city. My grandfather has dementia, so he had forgotten that I had already informed him that I will not be home for a few days.&x201D;
&x201C;So, I really hope that everyone can stop criticizing and blaming Sister Yuning for something that she did not do at all. The only reason why I left home to work part-time is just so I could save enough money to buy a hearing aid for my grandfather. Sister Yuning&x2019;s education platform has nothing to do with this matter. On the contrary, I have really gained a lot of benefit after using the services provided on the counselling and education platform set up by Sister Yuning. I have learned how to manage my own emotions and actions, and I have also learned how to be a better person.&x201D;
&x201C;Growing up, I was never an obedient child and because of my mischievousness, I have always caused a lot of difficulties and trouble for my grandpa. There was a time when I had unintentionally injured my classmate because of my actions. My grandfather had to go out and work to earn more money even though he was already seventy years old at that time, just so that we could afford to pay for my classmates&x2019; medical expenses. I felt very guilty and remorseful and because of that, I developed severe depression. At this time, I saw Sister Yuning on a variety program and she really saved my life. I started to feel more motivated and encouraged and therefore, I registered and signed up as one of the Ginger Candies. I have then started receiving psychological treatment and counselling through the platform that Sister Yuning has prepared for us.&x201D;
&x201C;The therapist was very encouraging and he encouraged me to show my love and care for the people around me through my actions. That is the reason why I asked my friend to introduce me to a part-time job at his father&x2019;s factory. I want to show my grandfather that I love and care for him. I want to be able to do something for him. I want to show him that I can care for him and for the people around me too.&x201D; Xiao Zhou&x2019;s eyes were red and tears flowed as he spoke these words. He was clenching his fists tightly as if secretly cheering for himself.
&x201C;I do not know why all of you are constantly misunderstanding and criticizing Sister Yuning because she is really a very good person. I do not care what other people think about her, but I just know that she is a really good person with a genuinely loving and compassionate heart for her fans.&x201D;
&x201C;After creating this counselling and education platform, Sister Yuning has never once promoted this platform on her social media account or through any sort of media at all. In fact, the only reason why she created this platform in the first place was just so she could help her fans and followers, who comprise mostly of students. All I can say is that she is really genuine and sincere because she is using her own money to hire and pay for all the counsellors and teachers who are all experts in their fields or profession without expecting anything in return. I do not know how many of you are actually enjoying the resources that Sister Yuning has provided but still be able to criticize her as soon as something crops up. Don&x2019;t you have a conscience at all?&x201D;
&x201C;I want all of you to know that, we, the Ginger Candies, do not care what you think about Sister Yuning or how you want to judge and criticize her because in our hearts, she is and always will be our most beloved fairy.&x201D;
&x201C;Because of her, I finally have the motivation and courage to move forward in my life. Because of her, I have learned how to love and care for the people around me and because of her, I have also finally gained the confidence to rebuild my life and strive to become a better person. Sister Yuning is a good person and she has a good heart, so why are all of you criticizing her for no reason at all?&x201D;
&x201C;I have two questions that I would like to ask the netizens. Firstly, why is it so wrong for Sister Yuning to build a counselling and education platform? Did she take or collect any money from anyone using the platform? No. Moreover, even if something did go wrong because of this education platform, Sister Yuning has already tried her best to contribute to society. What have the keyboard warriors, who are constantly judging and criticizing others, actually done for society in general?&x201D;
&x201C;Secondly, how many of you are guilty of accusing and criticizing a person without even bothering to distinguish the truth of a rumor?&x201D;
&x201C;Finally, I am really very grateful to the kind-hearted netizens who have sincerely cared for my grandfather and were kind enough to comfort and assure him when he was desperately looking for me. I also want to thank the people who were sincerely praying for my safety and hoping that I would get reunited with my grandfather. Thank you to everyone who were kind enough to offer us their help but I really do want to become a better person and I will work harder to give my grandfather a better life based on my own abilities. I hope that everyone will stop criticizing our beloved Sister Yuning in future without any evidence at all.&x201D;
&x201C;Last but not least, the education platform that Sister Yuning has built has really helped a lot of people in the fan club. Therefore, I hope that everyone will not attack this platform anymore and cause it to be shut down because a lot of us will suffer and lose out on this benefit when that happens. Thank you very much.&x201D;
Finally, Grandpa Zhou appeared in front of the camera as he wiped the tears in his eyes and spoke with a trembling voice.
&x201C;Jiang Yuning is the idol whom my grandson really loves and adores. I am really sorry for causing you so much trouble because I am old and forgetful.&x201D;
Both the grandfather and his grandson hugged one another as they wept bitterly. After that, this video was subsequently posted on the official police website. The investigation process and report were also appended at this time.
It turned out that everything was a misunderstanding right from the start.
[My tears are flowing already. This is really a very touching scene. I feel so sad after watching this video but I am really glad that this boy is so positive. Keep fighting!]
[I have always been on Jiang Yuning&x2019;s side and I have tried countless times to defend and speak up for her because I am also a mother. My daughter asks me every single day for the reason why someone with such a good heart such as Jiang Yuning has to suffer constant vicious and hurtful abuse every day.]
[Can I sincerely request for everyone from all walks of life to be more tolerant towards Jiang Yuning in future? I feel very uncomfortable and upset every time I see her getting scolded and humiliated even when she has done nothing wrong at all.]
[Sister Yuning, all the best! Stay strong!]
[Sister Yuning, we will always believe in you and we are always grateful towards you!]
[Sister Yuning&x2026;we love you.]
[I am really sorry this time. I swear that I will never criticize Jiang Yuning again.]
[I was watching this video after work and as a thirty-year-old man, I am suddenly very envious of Jiang Yuning&x2019;s fans.]
The public and netizens were all extremely touched by Xiao Zhou&x2019;s video but to Jiang Yuning, the most important thing was the fact that Xiao Zhou was alright.
Later that day, Vera went over to the Royal Dragon Villa because she wanted Jiang Yuning to record a video to provide closure to the entire matter.
&x201C;Have you found out the identity of the person who sold that piece of information to Star Entertainment?&x201D; Jiang Yuning asked Vera as she sat down on the chair on the balcony in preparation to record the video.
&x201C;Yes, I have already found out the identity of that person. We will deal with that matter after we record the video,&x201D; Vera replied as she raised her camera.
Jiang Yuning made an okay gesture before the both of them proceeded to record the video on the wide balcony.
&x201C;Hello everyone. My name is Jiang Yuning. First of all, I would like to thank the police officers for their efficiency in finding the child so quickly and thus resolving this matter for all of us without any further complications. To be honest, I feel really relieved right now because I can finally face Grandpa Zhou, knowing that his grandson is safe and sound.&x201D;
&x201C;I felt very emotional when I heard Xiao Zhou&x2019;s words. At the same time, I feel that I am shouldering a very heavy responsibility and burden on my shoulders. However, I would like to assure all Ginger Candies and their parents that the counselling and education platform will remain open to all Ginger Candies. I will not be shutting down the platform.&x201D;
