Such hot search terms would usually be ignored but Jiang Yuning knew that the fact that this video was out in the public was a contempt for the Lu family and a form of humiliation towards Lu Jingqi. There was no way that Jiang Yuning could allow these people to market their video and make a profit using such malicious means.
&x201C;Vera, please do me a favor.&x201D;
&x201C;What is it?&x201D; Vera replied immediately.
&x201C;Ask Xue Li to help me edit a video. Look for pictures of me picking up anything in the world. After that, ask her to make a video out of all the pictures of me picking up all sorts of different items, no matter what it is at all. If there are people who are out for blood, they would always find ways to get it. Please help me ensure that the Ginger Candies help make the video of me picking up items reach the hot search,&x201D; Jiang Yuning instructed. &x201C;I promised Grandpa Lu that I will never allow the Lu family to become the subject of gossip in the entertainment industry. I do not want to become a tool that others can use to attack the Lu family.&x201D;
&x201C;To be honest, I really cannot comprehend who would be so idle and what can they actually get out of doing this?&x201D;
&x201C;You cannot deny that there are really many rich people who are idle and bored. The Lu family has always kept up a very secretive and mysterious front in front of everyone else and there have always been people who have been trying to get more information and updates on the Lu family. Therefore, we cannot rule out the possibility that there is definitely someone who will take advantage of the current situation to try and pry into the privacy of the Lu family,&x201D; Jiang Yuning explained in a serious manner. &x201C;The entertainment industry is such an intricate and complicated place. There will be people who will try to make use of this situation in an attempt to take Second Brother down. You should understand this better than anyone else. There are always ruthless villains behind every situation like this.&x201D;
&x201C;Although the hot search term seems to be very inconspicuous online, it is actually a very sharp knife. If someone uses this hot search to his advantage in an attempt to humiliate Second Brother or Third Uncle, it would definitely hurt them a lot.&x201D;
&x201C;Is the situation really that bad?&x201D; Vera asked, full of doubts.
&x201C;Although it might seem as though the paparazzi and media do not dare to offend the Lu family, why would they upload a picture of me picking up a ball then? Even though they have censored off parts of the picture, they are trying to inevitably give everyone the perception that this has something to do with the Lu family anyway. If they were really afraid of the Lu family, then they wouldn&x2019;t have released the picture in the first place, would they? Don&x2019;t you think that what I am saying is very true?&x201D; Jiang Yuning analyzed everything for Vera at the moment. &x201C;These people are trying to use me as a target to gain more information on the Lu family to bring them down.&x201D;
Vera could not help but roll her eyes after listening to Jiang Yuning. &x201C;Alright then, I got it, but are you really sure that you do not care about your image anymore?&x201D;
&x201C;Do you really think that I am afraid of these people who hide behind the scenes?&x201D;
After that, Xue Li was also very efficient. Aside from taking quite some time to look for pictures of Jiang Yuning picking up items from the ground, everything else was done really quickly.
After that, the Ginger Candies started sharing the video of Jiang Yuning picking up all sorts of items on the Internet, ultimately pushing the video up onto the hot search.
[Do you think that Empress Jiang is only capable of picking up a ball? Sorry but she picks up anything that she sees on the ground!]
[I could not help but laugh out loud as soon as I saw the video that was on the hot search. The Ginger Candies are really unbelievable! Are they really Jiang Yuning&x2019;s loyal fans?]
[Hahaha! That video is really too ridiculous, don&x2019;t you think so? There are so many different emotions in all of the pictures compiled in the video. I can&x2019;t believe that the Ginger Candies have really compiled a video of Jiang Yuning picking up all sorts of different items.]
[She picked up a red scarf and there was even a picture of her picking up dog poo!]
[I really laughed until my stomach was hurting. Jiang Yuning&x2019;s fans are really hilarious.]
Although Jiang Yuning&x2019;s hot search was inexplicable, the Ginger Candies took advantage of this opportunity to promote Jiang Yuning&x2019;s new variety program at the same time. After all, since someone else had already given them this opportunity, they might as well put it to good use.
Was the picture of Jiang Yuning picking up a ball really important? No! Who would be interested in a picture of her picking up a ball?
It would be more exciting to look at some other interesting events.
As for the people who were constantly testing the limits, Jiang Yuning really took out her notebook to make a record of these people. After all, she knew that the picture of her picking up the ball would not be their last attempt at trying to send the Lu family onto the hot search.
Later that evening, Jiang Yuning had a conversation over the phone with Hou Da as it was about time for Jiang Yuning to start training. At this time, most of the actors and actresses who would be starring in the drama had already been officially announced to the public. The second female lead actress turned out to be a college student who had just graduated from acting school. Well&x2026;this was not really surprising, coming from Hou Da, since she was already courageous enough to cast Jiang Yuning as the first female lead of the drama.
Since Hou Da actually dared to give the role of the first female lead to Jiang Yuning, it seemed as though a college graduate who had just graduated from acting school was not that bad after all.
&x201C;You are really getting more and more popular nowadays. I really can&x2019;t believe that you actually made it to the hot search simply because you were picking up a ball.&x201D;
&x201C;Well, I still need to rely on
&x201C;But Yuning, I recently heard some rumors about the Lu family. Do you know anything about it?&x201D;
Jiang Yuning stopped smiling as soon as she heard Hou Da&x2019;s words. &x201C;Hou Da, I am not sure since I do not visit the Lu family that often.&x201D;
&x201C;Some people told me that the picture of you picking up the ball was actually taken outside the Lu family mansion. I am just afraid that you would be caught up in a difficult situation if the Lu family thinks that you are taking advantage of the situation to boost your own popularity.&x201D;
&x201C;That will not happen,&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied after thinking for a short while.
Jiang Yuning initially thought of asking Hou Da where the training would be held but she knew that Hou Da would definitely question her about it.
Therefore, Jiang Yuning decided to keep her mouth shut in order not to get caught up by Hou Da&x2019;s questioning.
&x201C;Then, I will see you when training commences.&x201D;
Jiang Yuning was very confused and she was in a very complicated mood after hanging up the phone.
It seemed as though entering and leaving the Lu family mansion so often was not the best solution from now on.
Although she had the disguise of being a close family friend, she would become the target that the paparazzi would use to get more information on the Lu family.
She would have to discuss this matter with Lu Jingzhi later.
When Jiang Yuning saw that Lu Jingzhi was not home yet, she went into Lu Jingqi&x2019;s room to visit him. At this time, Third Uncle Lu was in his room as he was talking to him about his mother.
Lu Jingqi was sitting on his bed as he listened attentively to his father. He was much quieter than before and it seemed as though his eyes were bright and clear as he looked at his father.
&x201C;Yuning, you are here.&x201D;
Jiang Yuning nodded her head before she sat down on the chair next to Third Uncle Lu. &x201C;I want to try and train Jingqi.&x201D;
&x201C;Come and sit over here,&x201D; Third Uncle Lu replied as he gave up his seat to Jiang Yuning.
Jiang Yuning sat down next to Lu Jingqi as she placed a hand on his shoulder before she said, &x201C;Jingqi, raise your head and look at me confidently.&x201D;
Lu Jingqi was very obedient and he quickly raised his head as he looked at Jiang Yuning.
&x201C;Jingqi, don&x2019;t be nervous. If Sister Yuning asks you to come out with me to socialize and interact with some strangers, will you be afraid?&x201D; Jiang Yuning asked as she stroked Lu Jingqi&x2019;s head gently, as though she was his elder sister.
Lu Jingqi looked at Jiang Yuning with a complicated expression on his face. It seemed as though he did not know how he should be expressing himself at this time.
&x201C;It will be okay,&x201D; Jiang Yuning quickly assured him. &x201C;I promise to stay by your side and protect you all the way. Will you be okay then?&x201D;
Lu Jingqi seemed to understand what Jiang Yuning was saying and after hesitating a little, he finally nodded in agreement.
Lu Jingqi was already so pitiful but he was now a subject that was suffering from attacks from the netizens and the public even though they do not know him. Jiang Yuning felt really sorry for him at this time.
&x201C;Yuning, Jingqi&x2019;s condition is not that good yet. Are you sure that he is ready to go out and meet people? Wouldn&x2019;t it be too risky at the moment?&x201D;
Third Uncle Lu was a little hesitant to take the risk at this time. Those people were only humiliating and making fun of Lu Jingqi behind the scenes but they would not dare to say anything in front of the Lu family.
However, if Lu Jingqi made a mistake in public, then&x2026;
Everything would be different.
&x201C;Third Uncle, everyone in the entertainment industry has already seen the video of Jingqi,&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied in a straightforward manner at this time. &x201C;The ridicule and contempt that they have for Jingqi and the Lu family is already there. I have a feeling that if we allow this matter to prolong, the consequences will be even more severe in the future. This matter will implicate all of us, including you and Sister Jingshu. Therefore, I think that this is a battle that we have to fight and win at all costs.&x201D;
