After screening through Jin Mingchen&x2019;s schedule, Wang Jing suggested that Lu Jingqi could try to perform as a backup dancer with Jin Mingchen&x2019;s dance team during the music night held at a college next month.
When Jin Mingchen heard the news, he was elated and he agreed immediately. After all, he was also looking forward to watch his little brother&x2019;s performance.
In an attempt to help Lu Jingqi to better adapt to his new identity, Wang Jing proposed that it would be best to lower Lu Jingqi&x2019;s guard and defences. Therefore, it would be very important for Lu Jingqi to have more friends so that he could experience some normal interactions while accumulating some stage experience.
However, Wang Jing was afraid that the Lu family would turn down her proposal.
&x201C;Make the necessary arrangements. I will take full responsibility if anything happens,&x201D; Jiang Yuning promised Wang Jing as she gave her consent.
&x201C;Alright then. I will make the arrangements as soon as possible,&x201D; Wang Jing replied after getting Jiang Yuning&x2019;s approval.
In fact, Wang Jing had been keeping an eye of Lu Jingqi, observing him for quite some time. He did not act in a stupid manner nor did he do anything extraordinary out of the blue. The only difference with Lu Jingqi is that he kept to himself and he would not start a conversation with anyone. However, Wang Jing discovered that if someone talked about dancing, Lu Jingqi would be more than pleased to converse with them even though his communication methods was not as smooth as a regular person&x2019;s.
Moreover, when Lu Jingqi put on a face mask, he had the temperament and aura of a superstar because of his height and the cold expression on his face.
After receiving Jiang Yuning&x2019;s affirmation, Wang Jing subsequently handed Lu Jinqi over to Jin Mingchen.
The young boy who was extremely quiet and always kept to himself was eventually introduced to Jin Mingchen&x2019;s teammates as a regular person.
In order to avoid any problems, Wang Jing temporarily created a new English name for Lu Jingqi, which was Ace.
When Jin Mingchen&x2019;s team members heard that there will be a new member joining their team, they were all extremely excited because they wanted to play and have fun together. The few of them actually had a good impression of Lu Jingqi as soon as they saw him. However, they gradually realized that it seemed as though the new kid was not interested in making contact or talking to anyone at all. Moreover, he ignored them when they asked him for his contact number so that they could keep in touch. Was he looking down on them?
&x201C;Mingchen, which family does this child belongs to? He is not polite at all,&x201D; the captain of the dance team asked as he dragged Jin Mingchen to the side.
&x201C;Brother, why don&x2019;t you try playing some music and dancing?&x201D; Jin Mingchen replied as he smiled.
The few of them did not believe that there would be any difference. Therefore, they quickly turned on the music before they started dancing to it. In the next second, they saw Lu Jingqi happily jumping in to join them in their dance.
&x201C;Is dancing the switch to turn on this kid?&x201D; the captain asked as he sighed. &x201C;And he has really great dance moves. He is really talented.&x201D;
&x201C;I know, right?&x201D; Jin Mingchen replied as he smiled proudly. &x201C;And he does not even own a cell phone. He is not ignoring you on purpose. I just hope that all of you can help me to look after him as we train together. I would be really grateful.&x201D;
&x201C;If that is the case, then it looks like we are going to be dancing a lot.&x201D;
The few of them had already been friends for many years and they shared a very strong friendship.
This was also the reason why Jin Mingchen dared to introduce Lu Jingqi to his teammates. It was because he knew each and every one of their characters by heart.
Lu Jingqi finally lowered his guard against Jin Mingchen&x2019;s teammates because of their mutual love for dancing. Although he did not spend a lot of time having a lot of heart to heart conversations with the other brothers, he would always be dancing to entertain them whenever they had any free time. All of Jin Mingchen&x2019;s teammates eventually grew to love Lu Jingqi.
However, within the next few days, there were more videos of Lu Jingqi leaked out on the Internet and it quickly circulated around the entertainment industry. It seemed as though it was an undeniable fact that the young master of the Lu family was indeed mentally retarded.
What was even worse was the fact that the scumbag Young Master Han deliberately bought a hot search so that the videos would garner more views from the audience.
#The mentally retarded Young Master Lu#
As soon as anyone clicked into the hot search, then they would see a list of blacklisted artistes that was already well known to the public. After that, there were also some very malicious and provocative emojis of Lu Jingqi.
Even though the netizens and public did not know who Lu Jingqi was, they also saved the emojis in their cell phone.
They could use it from time to time.
Young Master Han did not believe that the Lu family would sit still and do nothing when Lu Jingqi&x2019;a affairs were already made known to the public.
Wang Jing was very calm at this time because she had personally witnessed how much Lu Jingqi had grown within such a short time. Moreover, she also noticed that the Lu family had finally relaxed a little and they were not watching Lu Jingqi so closely anymore.
Since Jin Mingchen and his teammates were always training and practicing their dance moves with Lu Jingqi, all of them had already seen Lu Jingqi without his face mask.
Now, all of them had already watched the videos of Lu Jingqi online.
Weren&x2019;t Lu Jingqi and Ace the same person?
It was no wonder why he was not good at responding and communicating with others.
In fact, the boys had always made fun of Lu Jingqi whenever they were done with their dance practice and they would always call him a country bumpkin. This was because they could not believe that anyone could live without browsing the Internet or owning a cell phone at all.
However, they could make fun of him because they were so close to him.
How could the netizens and public judge and humiliate him when they did not even know him at all? Wasn&x2019;t it too much?
When Lu Jingqi and the other teammates were engaged in a dance battle, the captain of the dance team pulled Jin Mingchen to the side before he asked him in a serious manner, &x201C;Mingchen, is Ace&x2026;the young master of the Lu family?&x201D;
&x201C;Brother&x2026;&x201D; Jin Mingchen was caught off guard and when he was about to explain himself, the both of them suddenly heard a loud crashing sound.
It was the sound of both of them falling down because the floor was wet and slippery.
No, in fact, both of them did not fall down. Lu Jingqi had fallen to the ground on purpose because he wanted to protect his teammate who slipped and fell.
&x201C;Ace, are you okay?&x201D; the young boy with blue colored hair asked in shock. This was because he never expected Lu Jingqi to protect and defend him in this manner.
Lu Jingqi slowly stood up before he shook his head.
&x201C;Hey&x2026;why are you so silly? You should have just let me fall on my own! What if you suffered any injuries because of me?&x201D;
As soon as the captain witnessed this scene, he patted Jin Mingchen on his shoulder before he said, &x201C;It does not matter whether Ace is really the young master of the Lu family or otherwise. Those people who posted those videos of him on the Internet are worse than animals!&x201D;
Jin MIngchen was very touched when he heard the captain&x2019;s words. &x201C;Brother&x2026;&x201D;
&x201C;You don&x2019;t need to thank me. All of us here have been through our darkest and toughest times. Which one of us had not suffered before we made it this far? Furthermore, Ace is obviously a genius who is naturally talented. I promise that all of us will definitely take care of him and protect him. We will bring him to all of our future performances and we will dance together.&x201D;
&x201C;Sob. Sob. My brother is so good,&x201D; Jin Mingchen replied as he hugged the other party.
&x201C;Hey stinky boy. What do you think you are doing? What would people think of us if they see us in this position now? What are you going to do if they think that we are a gay couple?&x201D;
&x201C;If they want to think that we are a gay couple, then we should let them be.&x201D;
&x201C;What are you saying?&x201D;
After that, the dance studio was filled with laughter as the boys continued chatting amongst themselves.
Initially, everything was going smoothly but after the incident involving the videos, Third Uncle Lu was very worried and concerned for his son. He wanted to see him just so he could be at ease and have a peace of mind. Therefore, he contacted Wang Jing to request that she make the necessary arrangements so he could pay his son a visit at the agency.
Wang Jing originally wanted to disagree to his request because she knew that the media and paparazzi were keeping a close eye on the Lu family at this time.
Moreover, the videos that was leaked out this time was much clearer compared to the videos that were previously released on the Internet. If anyone finds out Lu Jingqi&x2019;s identity, then all of their efforts would have been in vain.
However, Wang Jing knew that she could not stop a father from worrying about his own son.
Therefore, Wang Jing finally agreed to Third Uncle Lu&x2019;s request after much consideration. However, Third Uncle Lu had to promise to obey all the arrangements made by the agency. After all, Lu Jingqi was currently a trainee signed under a contract with the agency.
At ten o&x2019;clock that night, Third Uncle Lu made a trip to the agency under Wang Jing&x2019;s arrangements and Wang Jing personally escorted him to the dance studio.
At this time, Lu Jingqi was happily dancing with his teammates. When he saw his father&x2019;s shadow walking behind the glass door, he stopped dancing immediately and he walked towards his father as he wiped the sweat off his face.
