After having their lunch, Jiang Yuning handed over all the production crew and cast members&x2019; schedule over to the young paparazzo.
When Jiang Yuning was done with her training later in the evening, the young paparazzo had already entered all the data into his laptop.
&x201C;Sister Yuning, have a look at it,&x201D; the young paparazzo replied as he pushed his laptop screen towards Jiang Yuning.
Jiang Yuning wrapped her coat tightly around herself as she glanced at the laptop screen. After a brief moment, she looked away from the laptop screen.
&x201C;Are you already done analyzing the details?&x201D; the young paparazzo asked as he glanced doubtfully at Jiang Yuning.
&x201C;I already had some suspicions in my heart. The only reason why I had asked you to analyze these data for me is just so I can verify my suspicions,&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied immediately. &x201C;In fact, the reasoning behind my suspicions is very simple. First of all, even though the young actors and actresses are always making fun of me and talking about me behind my back, they would not dare to act so rashly because they would not want to tarnish their own reputation and ruin their careers. As for the more established actors and actresses, their focus would always be on the drama and nothing else. Therefore, the only person who has reasons to target me is obvious from the start.&x201D;
&x201C;Do you mean that&x2026;the person is An Youqing?&x201D; the young paparazzo asked in surprise.
&x201C;Yes. I have just verified my suspicions,&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied as she waved her hand, gesturing for the young paparazzo to come over to her side. After that, she whispered her plans to the young paparazzo so that he could get things sorted out for her.
&x201C;Okay, Sister Yuning! Don&x2019;t worry, I promise that I will definitely get this done for you,&x201D; the young paparazzo replied as he made an okay gesture at Jiang Yuning. At this time, the young paparazzo could not hide the excitement he was feeling inside.
In fact, the young paparazzo had always loved participating in these kind of missions, especially those that required acting mischievously.
First of all, the young paparazzo would have to find a trustworthy staff member to help them with their plan. After that, the staff member would have to pretend to accidentally disclose certain confidential matters to An Youqing&x2019;s personal assistant. The staff member would say that he had seen Jiang Yuning sneaking around a couple of times late at night and checking into a separate room.
Of course, in order to make things look more confusing and complicated than it really was, Jiang Yuning would also make an appointment with Hou Da to invite her over to that particular room to have tea at night. Anyway, Hou Da would probably agree to it since she had previously mentioned that she wanted to try Jiang Yuning&x2019;s tea-making skills a long time ago.
Therefore, Hou Da was yawning as she sat on the futon as it was already late at night. At this time, Hou Da could not stop herself from yelling at Jiang Yuning: &x201C;Jiang Yuning! Are you insane? Why are you asking me over to your room to have tea in the middle of the night? Are you trying to give me a sleepless night? Are you trying to teach me a lesson right now?&x201D;
&x201C;Didn&x2019;t you say that you wanted to observe my tea-making skills and try the tea that I make?&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied as she knelt down on the futon before she lfited the kettle off the stove. After that, she place the kettle in front of the tea set.
&x201C;Alright then. You are just making things so difficult for me. Ugh,&x201D; Hou Da replied as she crossed her legs. However, after a moment of silence, Hou Da suddenly reacted again, &x201C;Why do I have a feeling that you are up to no good?&x201D;
Jiang Yuning could not help but laughed as soon as she heard Hou Da&x2019;s words. Therefore, after she was done brewing the fragrant floral tea, Jiang Yuning replied, &x201C;There is something I want to figure out and I need your help to get this matter sorted out.&x201D;
Hou Da showed an expression on her face that read &x2018;I knew it&x2019; before she pointed her finger at Jiang Yuning and said, &x201C;Ah, who is the unlucky person this time? Sigh. Are you really trying to dismantle my entire production cast and crew even before we start filming the drama? Do you know how difficult it was for me to choose the actors and actresses for each and every role?&x201D;
&x201C;Don&x2019;t get too anxious, Hou Da. Since this is a private matter, I will definitely resolve it in private,&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied as she handed the tea cup over to Hou Da.
&x201C;What exactly happened?&x201D;
&x201C;When I left the set yesterday, I suspect that someone intentionally leak the news out to the public. This is because the media and paparazzi were camping outside Royal Dragon Villa to wait for me when I arrived,&x201D; Jiang Yuning explained.
&x201C;Do you think that your suspicions might be wrong? After all, the netizens and the public have been creating a huge commotion on the Internet for the past few days. It wouldn&x2019;t be that surprising for the reporters and paparazzi to be waiting outside your house for you, would it?&x201D;
Jiang Yuning listened to Hou Da&x2019;s question before she shook her head. &x201C;I have already asked the security guards at Royal Dragon Villa. They told me that the paparazzi arrived just a short while before I arrived at the villa. Otherwise, I would not have been so skeptical at all. Moreover, the news that I appeared to look very haggard was shared on the Internet just a short while after my encounter with the paparazzi.&x201D;
Hou Da understood Jiang Yuning&x2019;s character very well. She knew that this incident had already happened, and since Jiang Yuning already had her own suspicions, then Jiang Yuning would definitely have to get to the bottom of the matter. &x201C;Alright then. I guess it would also be better for us to figure out who the culprit is so that all of us can finally be at ease. Well, so how many days must I stay up until the middle of the night then?&x201D;
&x201C;Thank you, Hou Da, for your hard work.&x201D;
Hou Da placed her tea cup down before she replied, &x201C;I might as well just sleep here then. It might seem a little more convincing that way.&x201D;
After that, both of them started chatting and since they shared many similar interests, they could continue chatting without any awkward moments at all.
It was already three o&x2019;clock in the morning when Jiang Yuning finally returned to her bedroom.
The young paparazzo brought the staff member with him as they took a picture of Jiang Yuning returning to her old bedroom in the middle of the night.
Jiang Yuning attended her martial arts training early the next day and by lunch time, An Youqing&x2019;s assistant had already received the news that Jiang Yuning was sneaking around late at night before checking into another room.
&x201C;I heard one of the staff member saying that Jiang Yuning left her bedroom at around ten o&x2019;clock last night and she did not return until three o&x2019;clock in the morning. No one knows why Jiang Yuning was sneaking around or who she was meeting up with in secret. The staff member managed to take this picture of Jiang Yuning&x2026;when she was sneaking back into her bedroom.&x201D;
An Youqing took the cell phone from her assistant&x2019;s hand before glancing at the photo before she replied, &x201C;I will ask that person what I should do first. After all, we do not have any proof that Jiang Yuning is doing anything at all.&x201D;
&x201C;But if that is not the case, then why is Jiang Yuning sneaking around at night? Why did she go to one of the empty bedrooms when it is so quiet over there? If Jiang Yuning is not having a secret affair, then why would she be sneaking around when she is already a famous and popular artiste?&x201D;
&x201C;Alright then. You should go and spy on her personally tonight so that we can find out whether she is really having a secret affair,&x201D; An Youqing replied as she instructed her assistant. &x201C;Be careful not to get caught.&x201D;
&x201C;I understand,&x201D; the assistant replied as she lowered her cap.
Later that night, An Youqing&x2019;s assistant started spying on Jiang Yuning from ten o&x2019;clock that night. At midnight, An Youqing&x2019;s assistant saw Jiang Yuning walking out of her bedroom, dressed in a pair of black sports attire, as she walked towards the row of empty rooms before entering one of the rooms. At this time, the assistant quickly took a picture of Jiang Yuning before she followed after her. When Jiang Yuning finally came out of the room, it was already two o&x2019;clock in the morning. Jiang Yuning was very cautious and even though she was trying not to attract any attention to herself, An Youqing&x2019;s assistant had successfully taken some pictures of her leaving the room in a sneaky manner.
An Youqing&x2019;s assistant originally planned to continue loitering around the empty rooms so that she could take a picture of the man who was in the room with Jiang Yuning. However, even though she waited until dawn, she did not see anyone coming out of the room at all.
It seemed as though the other party was more cautious than she had expected.
However, this meant that Jiang Yuning was indeed doing something unseemly.
&x201C;Continue squatting tonight. Keep spying on her. If you cannot get any proof that Jiang Yuning is having a secret affair, then arrange for a paparazzo to come and take a close-up shot of her and her secret rendezvous. It would be perfect if you can take a picture of Jiang Yuning and the man whom she is having the secret affair with.&x201D;
&x201C;Okay!&x201D; the assistant replied as she smile excitedly.
Jiang Yuning was the last person to enter the cafeteria for lunch that day.
The young paparazzo followed closely behind her before he handed a pair of chopsticks over to her. After that, he whispered, &x201C;Sister Yuning, we have already put on an act for the past two nights. Do you think that we will be able to end the charade today?&x201D;
Jiang Yuning took the pair of chopsticks in her hand before she sat down beside the young paparazzo. &x201C;Why do you think that we will be able to end everything tonight?&x201D;
&x201C;Well, there is a saying that it would be a loss to not act when the opportunity is right in front of you. This group of people are so evil and stupid, I believe they will definitely want to get evidence that you are doing something bad as soon as they can!&x201D; the young paparazzo replied confidently as he looked at Jiang Yuning.
&x201C;Well, don&x2019;t you know that I am always ready for anything that comes my way?&x201D; Jiang Yuning chuckled before she drank some of her chicken soup. &x201C;Wow. This soup is really very delicious.&x201D;
