Jiang Yuning went to B University to attend the rehearsals the following afternoon.
The teacher who was in charge of coordinating the event took over the track that Jiang Yuning handed over to her. After listening to the track a few times, the teacher thought that it was actually a really beautiful song.
After that, she added Jiang Yuning&x2019;s song title to the list of performances for the event the next day. She placed Jiang Yuning&x2019;s performance as the last performance of the event because after discussing and consulting with several other teachers about the matter, all of them thought that this was the best move. After all, everyone would be very tired by then and nobody would really care about Jiang Yuning&x2019;s performance anymore. Therefore, it would not be a problem even if Jiang Yuning were to mess up in the end. The teacher had already considered every possible thing that could go wrong.
&x201C;Yuning, I have just listened to your song track. In my opinion, it seems to be quite a difficult song to perform live. Are you sure that you will be able to handle it?&x201D;
&x201C;Teacher, if you have anything to say, you can just let me know directly without beating around the bush,&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied as she looked at the other party with a smile on her face.
&x201C;Should we arrange for you to lip-synch?&x201D;
&x201C;There is definitely no need for that, teacher,&x201D; Jiang Yuning continued replying in a courteous manner.
&x201C;Alright then&x2026;we are currently facing some technical problems with the audio equipment in the gymnasium. So, why don&x2019;t we head over to the practice room to run through your songs a few times? You are an artiste, so I don&x2019;t think you will have any problems getting used to the stage at all. I am not worried about that.&x201D;
&x201C;That will be no problem at all.&x201D; Jiang Yuning actually understood why the teacher was proposing this. In fact, the teacher was trying to protect her.
Both of them entered the practice on and the teacher sat in front of the piano with Jiang Yuning&x2019;s music score as she got ready to play the piano.
The teacher was rather concerned as Jiang Yuning had not been singing for such a long time.
&x201C;Shall we begin?&x201D;
Jiang Yuning nodded her head. As soon as she heard the familiar accompaniment ringing in her ears, Jiang Yuning started to sing&x2026;
Once hated, I could only spend the countless nights sleeping alone;
I was once afraid that there would be no one to accompany me as the four seasons change;
The fireworks in my heart, only at that point;
I wanted extravagance but my dreams were completely destroyed, I wanted happiness but my future seemed to be further and further from my grasp;
It wasn&x2019;t until you showed up in my life that the flames in my heart started igniting again;
I felt afraid when I held your hands, I could feel the tears in my eyes as I looked at your face;
I want to hold onto your heart, because you changed my life forever.
Jiang Yuning&x2019;s voice was so ethereal and filled with emotions as soon as she started singing. The teacher who was playing the piano accompaniment was shocked when she heard her voice.
Was this what one called a music prodigy?
This was not the first time that the teacher had heard Jiang Yuning sing, but so many years had already passed. Unexpectedly, there was no difference in her voice at all even when Jiang Yuning sang today.
Moreover, this song was filled with heartfelt emotions and it gave people the urge to fall in love as soon as they listened to it.
&x201C;It is really an amazing song, Yuning. You did great. Did you write this song yourself?&x201D;
The teacher could not stop herself from applauding for Jiang Yuning after the rehearsal. However, the teacher had some doubts in her heart as she thought that the rhythm of the song seemed very familiar but she could not recall where she had heard this rhythm before.
&x201C;Yes. I composed it as a gift to someone special to me,&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied as she smiled. &x201C;So, do I still need to lip-synch tomorrow?&x201D;
The teacher smiled before she said to Jiang Yuning, &x201C;You used to be our biggest talent in the music course. Do you know that all the teachers in the music department still feel that it is such a waste whenever we think about you? That is the reason why I do not want you to be humiliated and ridiculed during the fiftieth anniversary celebration tomorrow. Since you are already an actress, I thought that you would have already forgotten and lost your music touch. Unexpectedly, your singing voice is still as beautiful as it used to be.&x201D;
&x201C;Teacher, don&x2019;t worry about me. I can face any challenges thrown my way. I am no longer the young girl who was forced to drop out of college more than five years ago.&x201D;
The other party patted Jiang Yuning on her shoulder with a relieved expression on her face. &x201C;I believe in you. I look forward to your performance tomorrow.&x201D;
However, the teacher suddenly regretted placing Jiang Yuning as the last performer tomorrow.
She was really dazzling. Even if she had not been actively making music for such a long time, Jiang Yuning was still a natural talent and she could still sing so beautifully.
After coming out of the practice room, Jiang Yuning put on a baseball cap as she prepared to leave the university. However, as she was walking along the corridor, she bumped into several students from the music course.
Jiang Yuning lowered the baseball cap to cover her face and avoid suspicion but the students recognized her immediately.
[Isn&x2019;t that Jiang Yuning? It is already the fiftieth anniversary celebration tomorrow. I really did not expect her to come for the rehearsal.]
[Hmm, if she did not come to prepare herself today, then what would she do tomorrow?]
[I heard the melody of the song coming from the practice room earlier. Somehow, the rhythm of the song sounds very familiar but I can&x2019;t seem to remember where I heard it before.]
[What is so surprising about it? It is not that strange for her to sing someone else&x2019;s song anyway.]
Therefore, the few people did not think too much about it.
They simply took a picture of Jiang Yuning&x2019;s back before posting it on the internet.
[We ran into Jiang Yuning during the rehearsal at B University.]
When the students from B University saw the news in the forum, they could not stop laughing among themselves.
[Can Jiang Yuning still sing after all this years?]
[I am afraid that I would have a headache after listening to her singing. I would rather watch her performing a handstand or something.]
[We will find out whether she is a mule or a horse tomorrow.]
[If you want to see a joke, then tune in to the anniversary celebration tomorrow.]
The Ginger Candies did not know that their idol was being mocked and made fun of because this time, the news did not circulate around the Internet.
The Ginger Candies were all very excited because their idol would be appearing on television tomorrow night.
At the same time, their idol would also be appearing at the gymnasium in B University, where the fiftieth anniversary celebration would be held.
As Jiang Yuning was on the way back to the villa in the evening, she suddenly received a text message from Yi Fan: &x201C;Did the rehearsal go well for you?&x201D;
&x201C;It was okay. How about you? By the way, I don&x2019;t think you need to rehearse anyway!&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied immediately.
&x201C;What do you mean by that? I went for the rehearsal earlier today! I wanted to wait for you but I had to return to the agency so I left earlier,&x201D; Yi Fan replied. &x201C;Besides that, I have something on tomorrow so I will only be able to attend the event for a short while. I was planning to have a meal with you after the event but it seems as though we can only have a meal together some other time instead.&x201D;
&x201C;I will be returning to the filming set the day after tomorrow. You can come and visit me at work and we can grab dinner together then.&x201D;
&x201C;That&x2019;s a plan!&x201D; Yi Fan replied as she added a smiley emoji in her text message.
Jiang Yuning also replied with a smiley emoji.
At this time, Vera who was sitting next to her suddenly said, &x201C;I was really amazed during your rehearsal. Since I have not heard you singing before, I have always thought that you were just doing it on impulse. However, after listening to your singing, I think that you should consider stepping into the music industry.&x201D;
&x201C;No thanks.&x201D; Jiang Yuning shook her head. &x201C;Although I am always dreaming about holding my own concerts, I just want to focus on improving and honing my acting skills now. Weren&x2019;t you the one who said that I have to win some awards for you next year?&x201D;
&x201C;I would be thankful and happy if you can just win the rookie award next year. However, I think that it would be more plausible for actresses acting in the hot idols drama to win that award.&x201D;
&x201C;If that award is awarded to someone simply on the basis of the drama genre she is acting in, then don&x2019;t you think that the award no longer holds any significant value?&x201D;
Vera froze for a moment after listening to Jiang Yuning&x2019;s words. In fact, she suddenly felt that what Jiang Yuning said was very true indeed.
&x201C;Don&x2019;t be discouraged. There is still hope. Yuning, I realized that you are really skillful at writing your song lyrics. I believe that Second Young Master Lu will definitely blush at your love confession to him tomorrow. He is in for a big surprise tomorrow!&x201D;
&x201C;Of course! That goes without saying,&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied.
However, everyone would find out&x2026;why they found the melody of the song so familiar tomorrow.
