Very soon, it was already the day of the Spring Lantern Festival. Jiang Yuning departed from T City and she was on the plane back to Luo City.
As her itinerary was public this time, the Ginger Candies had rushed to the airport so they could pick Empress Jiang up and say hello to her as soon as she landed. This was because Jiang Yuning did not have a lot of activities lately. Therefore, the Ginger Candies had wanted to take advantage of all the opportunities that they had to see her.
Jiang Yuning was wearing an orange pullover jumper, paired with a black sweater on the inside and a pair of black denim jeans on her lower body. She was wearing brown floral martin boots and she had a very beautiful and warm aura surrounding her. Even though it was a very simple outfit, Jiang Yuning still looked incredibly dazzling.
&x201C;Yuning, Yuning, our star is coming; Ginger Candies, Ginger Candies, supporting you always!&x201D;
This was the slogan that the Ginger Candies were chanting as they waited for Jiang Yuning to walk out of the arrival hall. At this time, Jiang Yuning felt that this was the first time the Ginger Candies had been so serious.
Although it was a very simple slogan and it felt as though the Ginger Candies had been a bit lazy to come up with a creative one, Jiang Yuning liked it because she knew that this was the true temperament of her fans.
However, after walking a few steps out of the arrival hall, someone started to create trouble by yelling at Jiang Yuning: &x201C;Hey, Miss Jiang! Are you wearing autumn pants already?&x201D;
After listening to the question, all the Ginger Candies started bursting out in laughter.
Jiang Yuning stopped in her tracks and she replied immediately in a cheerful manner, &x201C;Do you really need to ask? Hurry up, go home and put on your fancy autumn pants too! I will check!&x201D;
&x201C;Your wish is my command!&x201D;
&x201C;I am going to head straight to the location for my rehearsals right now. None of the Ginger Candies are allowed to chase after my car! It&x2019;s still so cold outside. If I see any of you chasing after my car, I will strangle you!&x201D;
&x201C;Don&x2019;t worry. We are all fake fans. It is so cold outside, we will not risk being out in the cold just because of you!&x201D;
&x201C;Exactly! How are we going to chase after your car anyway? We are all poor fans. We walked all the way to the airport today.&x201D;
All the Ginger Candies started laughing again. At this time, even the passers-by were intrigued because it was indeed rare for actresses such as Jiang Yuning to be able to interact in such a friendly and joyous manner with fans at the airport. Jiang Yuning suddenly thought back to when she had arrived at the arrival hall at the airport a few years back. In the past, she had a lot of haters and thus, the reporters and haters would always be waiting for her to take ugly and unglamorous pictures of her.
It was from then onwards that Jiang Yuning made up her mind to learn how to coordinate her outfits and ensure that she had a great fashion sense. She had to make sure that no matter what surprises the reporters and haters sprung on her, she would still look good in the pictures.
Moreover, it was precisely because the Ginger Candies were now all true and loyal fans that Jiang Yuning cherished every opportunity that she had to interact with the Ginger Candies, no matter how short the duration.
After getting into Vera&x2019;s car, Jiang Yuning took out her cell phone before sending Lu Jingzhi a text message: &x201C;Take a nice warm bath tonight and wait for me to come home! Hehehe&x2026;&x201D;
&x201C;I&x2019;ll pick you up.&x201D; Lu Jingzhi replied briefly.
Shen Yichen was the one to make the decision for Jiang Yuning to debut her singing skills on stage for the television program. He had intentionally chosen Luo City as the location because he believed that Jiang Yuning would be less nervous as this was a familiar territory, and secondly, it would be more convenient for Shen Yichen to follow up on any possible collaborations following the performance. Lastly, even though this television station was not the top in the country, they had always maintained a good image and reputation in the entertainment industry.
After entering the backstage, Jiang Yuning realized that the production crew and staff were all extremely polite towards her.
&x201C;Hello, Teacher Jiang&x2026;&x201D;
&x201C;Nice to meet you, Teacher Jiang&x2026;&x201D;
Jiang Yuning would never have dreamt of it in the past, but now, someone was actually addressing her as a teacher?
After slacking for the past few days, Vera finally remembered that she was Jiang Yuning&x2019;s exclusive agent and she started taking care of her again.
&x201C;There will be another female artiste who will be coming over shortly to join you as your partner for the day. She is Nan Yan, an actress who has recently starred in a drama that is quite popular on the Internet. Both of you will be taking a classical dance and choreography class later in the evening,&x201D; Vera quickly update Jiang Yuning.
&x201C;Okay, I got it.&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied as she waved her hand.
&x201C;You must be hungry already. I&x2019;ll go downstairs and find you something to eat.&x201D; After that, Vera left the dressing room and left Jiang Yuning behind on her own.
As Vera was asking one of the production crew for directions to the cafeteria, she overheard someone talking about Jiang Yuning.
&x201C;I heard that Jiang Yuning even accepted an endorsement contract for a hemorrhoid cream! How desperate is she? Why would she even accept such endorsements?&x201D;
&x201C;Perhaps&x2026;she doesn&x2019;t think that it is embarrassing to accept such jobs. The label that she seems to put on herself is that she does not take the usual career path that other artistes do. Maybe that is what her fans like her for&x2026;&x201D;
After listening to the other parties&x2019; discussion, Vera had wanted to approach them to correct their thinking. However, she refrained when doing so when she realized that the other party was also part of the cast for the television program.
Vera was not afraid, but she did not want to cause any trouble for Jiang Yuning. Furthermore, she was also a representative of Xiao Chennan&x2019;s image now.
Vera held her breath and she headed into the cafeteria to buy lunch for Jiang Yuning before returning to the dressing room.
At this time, Jiang Yuning&x2019;s partner, Nan Yan, had already arrived at the dressing room.
When Vera glanced at the other party, she realized that she was the same girl who was mocking Jiang Yuning earlier.
Were all these young children nowadays double faced?
Vera saw that the young girl was sitting next to Jiang Yuning with her legs crossed and she did not seem to show any interest in being here at all. What was she waiting for? Was she expecting Jiang Yuning to greet her first?
&x201C;Yuning, your lunch.&x201D; Vera was extremely annoyed and she ignored the girl who was sitting next to Jiang Yuning. After placing the lunchbox in front of Jiang Yuning, Vera asked in a low voice, &x201C;When did she come in?&x201D;
Jiang Yuning thought for a short moment before she shook her head. &x201C;I don&x2019;t know.&x201D;
&x201C;Does that mean that she did not greet you at all?&x201D;
&x201C;No.&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied as she laughed lightly.
&x201C;Just ignore her then. I have also bought you some durians&x2026;&x201D;
Before Vera could finish her sentence, the girl who was named Nan Yan quickly pinched her nose before she said, &x201C;Sister Yuning, I am so sorry but I really cannot tolerate the smell of durians. I hope that you will be more considerate towards the people around you.&x201D;
Jiang Yuning glanced at the other party before she handed the packet of durians back to Vera. &x201C;Keep it for me first. I will have it tonight when I am hungry.&x201D;
In fact, Jiang Yuning was very puzzled at the young girl&x2019;s attitude. She was still so young and she was clearly a junior in the entertainment industry. Didn&x2019;t her agency teach her how to control her temper, especially in front of her seniors?
A short while later, Nan Yan&x2019;s assistant came into the waiting room with plenty of food for Nan Yan. After greeting Jiang Yuning, Nan Yan&x2019;s assistant placed the food in front of her before she said, &x201C;You can eat now.&x201D;
&x201C;Didn&x2019;t I tell you that I can&x2019;t eat any spicy food when I am on my period? How can you still buy all the wrong food for me?&x201D;
&x201C;And you are asking me to drink cold water when I am having my period? Are you trying to sabotage me by making me ill? You want me to be in pain? Will you go on stage on my behalf tonight?&x201D;
The young assistant stood at the side with a pitiful expression on her face as Nan Yan continued to reprimand her.
Jiang Yuning and Vera exchanged glances with one another and they could immediately tell that Nan Yan was a very arrogant and spoiled child.
At this time, Vera quickly went online to do some research.
It turned out that Nan Yan did have a solid background. Otherwise, she would not have been able to partner up with someone as popular as Jiang Yuning tonight.
Nan Yan was the younger sister of the owner of a rather big entertainment agency and her brother was particularly willing to spend and allocate all their resources to her.
Just because you have an older brother?
Jiang Yuning also had not one, but two brothers!
Vera finally figured out why this young girl was brave enough to speak ill of Jiang Yuning in public earlier. It was all because of her background.
&x201C;Go out and buy me some other food now.&x201D;
The young assistant wiped the tears off her face before she ran out of the dressing room. At this time, Nan Yan ran her fingers through her braid before she said to Jiang Yuning, &x201C;Sorry, Senior. Did I cause any disturbance to you?&x201D;
