Perhaps, Jiang Yuning could already expect that things were not as simple as it seemed. Vera felt that she should have made more preparations for something like this. If Vera&x2019;s screening criteria were more stringent in the first place, or if her arrangements were more thoughtful, something like this would not have happened today.
There were also other apartments for rent at that time but Vera decided on this apartment because Jiang Yuning told her she wanted to live with someone that she could easily get in close contact with.
However, it seemed as though there were a lot of hidden dangers and it was all because of her negligence.
Things turned out this way in the end. Later that afternoon, Jiang Yuning began receiving various harassing text messages and phone calls from unknown people.
It seemed as though someone had leaked out Jiang Yuning&x2019;s private number.
No one would have imagined that a person&x2019;s evil nature would be so disgusting!
After that, a bunch of people started talking about this matter on the internet.
[It seems as though Jiang Yuning&x2019;s private number has been exposed! The source of the leak is unknown.]
[I have already checked with some of my friends in the entertainment industry and I have already confirmed that this number belongs to Jiang Yuning. I really do not know how her phone number got leaked out to the public.]
[Don&x2019;t say that I am not giving you any fan benefit here! Go and call Jiang Yuning and make sure all of you drop her some text messages too!]
At this time, there were still people who were sharing Jiang Yuning&x2019;s private number on the internet.
The Ginger Candies were all very furious and annoyed when they found out about this situation. Therefore, they started attacking the haters immediately!
[The person who leaked out Jiang Yuning&x2019;s private number in the first place must be either stupid or vicious! How can anyone be so evil?]
[Can anyone really get a sense of satisfaction by invading other people&x2019;s privacy? Is this person happy now? I really do not understand what is going in their minds!]
[As one of the Ginger Candies, I would never invade in my idol&x2019;s private space. Only a sick person would do something like that!]
[Can we make a police report because of this matter? I hope that we will be able to get the police involved in this matter!]
[The Ginger Candies will never do anything to hurt Sister Yuning, so the haters can just stop whatever they are doing right now! I also want to advise all the curious passers-by to please act in a decent manner instead of invading in other people&x2019;s privacy and causing a lot of disturbance to others. You might think that what you are doing is very interesting but you are actually hurting others at this time!]
[Exactly! The person who leaked out Jiang Yuning&x2019;s private number is really very malicious and stupid!]
Jiang Yuning&x2019;s cell phone continued exploding with countless phone calls and text messages. In the end, she finally decided to turn her cell phone off.
Vera felt very guilty when she saw that Jiang Yuning had already turned off her cell phone. However, she did not know what to say or what she could actually do to comfort Jiang Yuning. After Jiang Yuning was finally done with her etiquette class, Vera quickly said to Jiang Yuning, &x201C;You should change your cell phone number. It is my fault that the scumbag could actually sell and leak out your private number to the public.&x201D;
&x201C;Of course, I have to change my cell phone number,&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied as she stared at her phone. &x201C;And yes, this is indeed your fault but Vera, I hope that you will remember this lesson and not repeat the same mistake in future. Anyway, just try to solve this matter for me as soon as possible. After all, this matter had already happened and it is useless for you to feel any guilt or regrets because this would not change anything at all.&x201D;
&x201C;Furthermore, I do not expect you to be some kind of robot. I did not set or program you manually. So, how can I possibly expect you to be perfect and not make any mistakes in this life?&x201D;
Vera nodded and took a deep breath before she calmed herself down. She decided not to be immersed in her own emotions.
&x201C;I will take care of the matter and get a new cell phone number for you tomorrow. I will arrange for the young paparazzo to come and pick you up after your etiquette class tomorrow. Anyway, you must not forget to do your homework when I am not around. As for the second young master Lu, I think that it would be best for you to call him and explain the situation to him now.&x201D;
&x201C;Your punishment is to get me a new cell phone number before saving all my contact information in my new number. Moreover, I want everything to be exactly the same as it was in my own cell phone,&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied as she handed her cell phone over to Vera. Jiang Yuning wanted to report everything to Lu Jingzhi but she knew that her cell phone will definitely explode with phone calls and text messages after she turned on her cell phone. Therefore, she decided to use Vera&x2019;s cell phone to call Lu Jingzhi instead.
After answering her phone call, Lu Jingzhi frowned before he asked directly, &x201C;Why was your private number leaked out to the public?&x201D;
Jiang Yuning knew that she would never be able to hide anything from Lu Jingzhi. Therefore, she took some time to explain everything to Lu Jingzhi. She also told him that the landlady called and asked for her help last night.
&x201C;So, did you punish Vera for her mistake?&x201D;
&x201C;Yes, I have already punished her,&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied immediately. &x201C;Second Brother, I am just a little upset because I think that it is really troublesome for me to change my cell phone number. I really like my current phone number.&x201D;
&x201C;Secretary Ho will take care of your new phone number. Ask Vera not to interfere in this matter.&x201D;
Jiang Yuning wanted to tell Lu Jingzhi that getting a new phone number for her was the punishment that she had given to Vera. However, since Lu Jingzhi had already spoken up, she did not want him to know that she had given Vera such a light punishment.
&x201C;Why? Are you intending to get a couple phone number with me?&x201D;
&x201C;Stop joking around at a time like this. Ask Vera to go with Secretary Ho to deal with this matter tomorrow. No matter how big or small this matter is, I am sure that things are not as simple as you think it is. After all, you are a public figure and the other party is just a rogue. If it is possible, I do not want you to get involved with him in any way at all. I am afraid that he would be planning something and when this matter continues fermenting, it would be too late to stop him.&x201D;
Jiang Yuning listened carefully and she agreed with Lu Jingzhi&x2019;s words.
This was because the other party did not only sell her private phone number to the public, but he also spread some rumors about her.
&x201C;Alright, I will do as you say.&x201D;
&x201C;You should also ask Vera to learn how to handle things in a professional manner.&x201D;
Jiang Yuning: &x201C;&x2026;&x201D;
This was Second Brother&x2019;s ultimate goal, right?
After all, Vera was still a woman and she would definitely be lacking in some ways. How could she possible be as professional as Secretary Ho? How could she be compared to him?
Moreover, Vera and Secretary Ho had always been dealing with two completely different industries. Secretary Ho was already used to scheming and dealing with men who were very powerful and influential.
However, Jiang Yuning felt that it was a good idea to let Vera learn from Secretary Ho.
Jiang Yuning was also very curious to witness Secretary Ho&x2019;s ability in cleaning up and dealing with a rogue. After all, he had always seemed very nice and playful in front of her. How could he possibly be a cruel and firm man? Jiang Yuning felt that the most terrifying people were the ones who were in the entertainment industry.
In fact, the scumbag was indeed the one who sold Jiang Yuning&x2019;s private phone number to the public. At first, the people did not believe him until he showed them the surveillance camera in his building to prove that Jiang Yuning had really made an appearance in his neighborhood before.
Even though he did not make a lot of money from selling her private phone number to the public, he was still extremely pleased with his actions.
That was a very popular celebrity and she actually lived in his apartment before! Since Jiang Yuning refused to help them, then he would just teach her a lesson by selling her private phone number to the public so that he could also earn some cash in the meantime.
&x201C;Stupid woman! When that big star offered to help you and our son, why did you refuse her help?&x201D;
In the messy room on the highest floor of the building, the television was broadcasting the local news at this time and the family of three had already started their daily argument routine. No, it was more appropriate to refer to it as&x2026;domestic violence!
Qinrong was kneeling down on the ground as she covered her face in fear. She did not dare to say anything at all.
&x201C;Do you know how much money we would have made if she did not let her go? Do you know that I could only get a few thousand dollars from selling her private phone number?&x201D;
The man was drinking as he sat on the stool and continued reprimanding and educating his woman.
&x201C;You are really useless! Both of you, mother and child are useless!&x201D;
&x201C;Let me tell you, I do not care what you do but I want you to find a way to trick that actress into coming back here. I don&x2019;t care if you have to commit suicide or jump off a building to do so! No matter what it is, I want to be on the news! If that actress does not come back here, I have no chance of making an appearance on television at all!&x201D;
The woman sobbed as she continued kneeling on the ground.
At this time, her son simply stood behind her with a dull look on his face, as though he did not understand anything that was going on at all.
