In fact, Jiang Yuning&x2019;s performance had already been pushed back. Her performance was originally supposed to be the third last performance. However, it was eventually pushed back to the second last and now, it was finally scheduled to be the last performance for the night.
The audience quickly discovered this issue and they started to check the order of performances in the program list.
&x201C;Isn&x2019;t Jiang Yuning supposed to perform? Isn&x2019;t she supposed to sing? Where is Jiang Yuning&x2019;s song?&x201D;
&x201C;Did they cancel Jiang Yuning&x2019;s performance? Did she back out at the last minute because she is a coward who does not have the guts to perform on stage anymore?&x201D;
&x201C;Is she withdrawing from the battle? Don&x2019;t tell me she is going to make a sudden announcement that she is not feeling well and will not be able to perform tonight.]
&x201C;This is already supposed to be the last performance of the night. She must have lost the courage to perform on stage.&x201D;
The audience started to discuss the matter among themselves. Did Jiang Yuning not even have the guts to perform tonight?
Everyone could not help but sigh when the last performance for the night came to an end. Someone even stood up directly and asked, &x201C;What about Jiang Yuning&x2019;s performance?&x201D;
&x201C;Exactly! Where did Jiang Yuning go?&x201D;
&x201C;Does she think that she is too good to perform here tonight?&x201D;
&x201C;Jiang Yuning, are you afraid to show up because you are afraid of embarrassing yourself?&x201D;
The students from B University who were sitting amongst the audience started insulting and making jokes about Jiang Yuning as they waved the glow stick in their hands in the air. They did not know that such a vicious incident had just taken place in the resting lounge backstage.
&x201C;Coward! Jiang Yuning must have run away to hide.&x201D;
&x201C;Jiang Yuning is really a coward.&x201D;
When Secretary Ho heard the people in the gymnasium insulting and scolding Jiang Yuning, he looked at Lu Jingzhi before he said in a nervous voice, &x201C;Principal, do not be angry. They are just a group of young students.&x201D;
Lu Jingzhi did not speak at all. However, the students seated in front turned around to look behind because could sense a strong and powerful aura from the back of the hall.
As Secretary Ho was blocking Lu Jingzhi from everyone&x2019;s view, no one knew that Lu Jingzhi was there. However, their sixth sense reminded them that the identity of the person seated at the back of the hall was not that simple&x2026;
At this time, the host was still standing on the stage and as everyone was bored of waiting and got up to leave the hall, the host suddenly made an announcement.
Unfortunately, the host did not succeed in stopping the students and guests from getting up to leave. It was only when the music accompaniment to started playing on the piano that they turned around to look at the stage.
Jiang Yuning was standing under the spotlight in the center of the stage. However, she was still wearing the exact dress that she had worn to the event earlier that night.
What happened? Did Jiang Yuning come back to perform her song because she knew that everyone was already making fun of her? Was she that concerned about her reputation and image?
[Jiang Yuning is hilarious. She must have gotten caught and dragged back here to perform after trying to escape!]
[Seriously, what kind of preparations did she have to do backstage? Why would she need more than twenty minutes to get ready for her performance?]
[There will definitely be a good show for us to watch tonight.]
Although everyone was speaking ill of the little descendant, Lu Jingzhi did not pay any attention to their words at all. This was because he was placing all of his focus and attention on Jiang Yuning, who was performing on stage at this time.
It was a pity that they were both so far apart. Lu Jingzhi could barely see Jiang Yuning. All he could see was Jiang Yuning holding the microphone to her mouth as she began singing&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;
What was going on? What was that professional and ethereal voice?
Everyone seated in the hall were in disbelief. The first thing that flashed through their minds was that Jiang Yuning was definitely lip-synching to someone&x2019;s song.
However, these students were professionals and they could easily distinguish and tell that Jiang Yuning was in fact singing the song live on stage tonight.
Although they were reluctant to admit it, they knew that Jiang Yuning was in fact singing the song all by herself.
Moreover, her singing skills were unexpectedly on point.
How could that be possible?
Jiang Yuning was only a freshman before she had dropped out of college.
How could she sing so well? She had such a beautiful voice and her song so perfectly matched the dress she was wearing.
Some of the students who were busy insulting and criticizing Jiang Yuning earlier raised their brows in shock and they were left speechless at Jiang Yuning&x2019;s performance.
[What song is this? Why does the melody sound so familiar? Don&x2019;t you think that this song is really beautiful?]
[Those who were insulting Jiang Yuning should come out and get a beating now!]
[So, can the people who were bullying and humiliating Jiang Yuning on the university forum disappear right now?]
[Jiang Yuning did not even complete her freshman year but I think that she is definitely more professional and has better singing skills than you people who have spent more than five years in the music course!]
[Jiang Yuning can really sing very well!]
This was especially so when Jiang Yuning finally sang the chorus. There was a strong emotional explosion and many people were impressed when they heard Jiang Yuning singing perfectly in the right tune and key.
All the Ginger Candies present at the event could not help but scream out loud as they cheered for their idol.
[Wow! I am really impressed!]
[Sister Yuning can debut as a singer now!]
[Hurry up and record an album already&x2026;]
[Short Jiang, you really did us proud today. I am so touched&x2026;]
No one would have expected Jiang Yuning to be able to sing so beautifully, as if she was a professional singer.
What else did the students of B University have to say about Jiang Yuning now? Did they want to continue insulting or mocking her?
In the whole hall, there was only one person listening and focusing on every single sentence of the song lyrics because he knew very well that the little descendant was singing this song just for him.
Every single sentence and every single word in this song was a confession of her love for him.
He received the gift.
He even had the impulse to hold his wife against the wall immediately so that he could kiss her right there and then.
Secretary Ho sat quietly behind the principal and he did not dare to step forward or disturb the principal in any way because he knew that the principal must be feeling all sorts of emotions right now.
The young mistress was really a very incredible and attentive person. Secretary Ho believed that the principal would never forget the gift that the young mistress had prepared for him tonight for his entire lifetime.
Jiang Yuning kept looking towards the back of the hall as she sang her song. Even though she did not know which direction her Second Brother was seated at, she was contented because she knew that he had already heard the song that she had spent so much time writing just for him.
I want to hold onto your heart, because you changed my life forever.
As soon as Jiang Yuning sang the last line of the song, the audience stood up and applauded her immediately. At this time, would anyone still dare to say anything about Jiang Yuning?
&x201C;I am sorry for the delay. Something happened backstage and that is the reason for the delay of my performance. I am sorry to have kept everyone waiting for such a long time.&x201D;
&x201C;The title of my song is &x2018;Holding Hearts&x2019; and I want to dedicate this song to the sun in my heart.&x201D;
After speaking, Jiang Yuning bowed to the audience before she exited the stage.
At this time, the host came back on stage but the audience were doubtful and they were not satisfied with Jiang Yuning&x2019;s explanation.
What kind of incident did Jiang Yuning encounter backstage?
Why didn&x2019;t she change her clothes before her performance?
Did she really leave the university but was forced to come back?
However, Jiang Yuning&x2019;s singing skills were so professional, so did she really have to run away?
Moreover, Jiang Yuning really appeared to be in a hurry when she had left the stage earlier.
After a short moment, Lu Jingzhi suddenly received a text message from Jiang Yuning. &x201C;Second Brother, something happened backstage. You can go home first. I will return home slightly later and I promise to sing you the song again.&x201D;
Lu Jingzhi did not think much before he called Jiang Yuning directly: &x201C;What exactly happened?&x201D;
Jiang Yuning froze for a moment before she told Lu Jingzhi the truth. &x201C;I was about to change my outfit when two men suddenly barged into my room and tried to kidnap me. However, I managed to subdue both of them. Vera and the young paparazzo are keeping watch over them right now. Second Brother, you don&x2019;t have to worry about me. Just trust me, I can handle this matter on my own.&x201D;
&x201C;Second Brother, what I meant by kidnap is that they were trying to stop me from stepping on stage to perform tonight. They did not have any other ill intentions.&x201D;
&x201C;Is that so?&x201D; There was already a hint of danger in Lu Jingzhi&x2019;s words at this time.
