Lu Shengyao also saw that. He immediately said, "I didn't block you."Ying Xiaoxiao looked up at him with disbelief in her eyes. "If he didn't do it, then who did?"Seeing her disbelief, Lu Shengyao raised his right hand. "I swear that I never did that."Ying Xiaoxiao's eyes were fixed on him, and still, she felt doubtful of his words."I can prove that Yao didn't do this." Someone spoke up for Lu Shengyao.Ying Xiaoxiao turned around to see a pretty-looking boy."How can you prove he didn't do it?" Ying Xiaoxiao narrowed her eyes slightly, a trace of fierceness hidden in them.The boy looked up at Lu Shengyao and was not sure if he should speak it out.Ying Xiaoxiao darted a look at Lu Shengyao then told the boy. "Say it. Say anything you know."The boy hesitated and then slowly spoke. "Actually... it was the girl that Yao brought to the dinner with us."Lu Shengyao did not know who the culprit was either and also wanted to find out. Therefore, he did not stop his friend.H
Lu Shengyao fixed his gaze on the photo, and after he made sense of it, he chuckled. "This is a misunderstanding.""Misunderstanding?" mocked Ying Xiaoxiao. "Go ahead and explain what kind of misunderstanding this is.""We were involved in some light-hearted conversations when a girl approached us. She mentioned that she was playing 'truth or dare' with her friends and asked if I would hug her."Ying Xiaoxiao scoffed with raised eyebrows, "So, you just agreed to her request for a hug?"Lu Shengyao replied indifferently, "Yes, it's always a pleasure to be of help.""Indeed, it's a pleasure to be of help." Ying Xiaoxiao snickered. "Should I be complimenting you then?"Lu Shengyao smiled drily as he replied, "There's no need for that."He observed the gleeful looks plastered on his friends' faces and pursed his lips in embarrassment. He proceeded to down the glass of beer on the table.In all honesty, this was his first time giving in to a female so obediently.Then again, his re
Ying Xiaoxiao brooded over her recklessness, because if she had known that the guy would turn out to be Song Mo, she would not have acted so rashly just to spite Lu Shengyao.Alas, there are no ifs, ands, or buts in this world.Facing Song Mo, Ying Xiaoxiao gave a sardonic smile and mocked him. "Seems like we forgot to check if today was going to be an auspicious day."Discerning her words, Song Mo furrowed his brows and his eyes glinted dangerously."Nice to meet you, Mr. Song." Lu Shengyao was unaffected by Ying Xiaoxiao's hostility and addressed Song Mo rather politely.Song Mo grudgingly reciprocated with a perfunctory smile. "Nice to meet you."Lu Shengyao grinned and turned to coax Ying Xiaoxiao. "Xiaoxiao, let's not disturb Mr. Song and head back."Even though her resentment of Lu Shengyao still lingered in her, it was nothing compared to her loathing of Song Mo.She grabbed Lu Shengyao's hand and strode off without sparing Song Mo another glance.Song Mo stared at thei
"Hobbies... He is somewhat interested in gardening.""Do you have any idea about the people who are close to him?"Zhao Xiaowan pondered for a moment before replying cautiously, "I did notice the increased frequency of his meetings with one particular woman. I questioned him about it, but he merely stated that she was his acquaintance from his hometown, and I did not find it respectful to pry."The police took down her statement as they carried on their investigation. However, Zhao Xiaowan seemed to have been prepared for the questioning, as she confronted the questions with much ease and maintained a composed front throughout.The police did not stick around after recording their statements and swiftly took their leave.After the police left, Zhao Xiaowan heaved a sigh of relief and slumped against the sofa.Gu Ruoruo rushed over and asked anxiously, "Mom, are you all right?"Zhao Xiaowan massaged her temples as she shook her head. "I'm all right."Gu Ruoruo's brows knitted to
"She said that she wanted to see you and raised a ruckus at the reception counter, so..." Li Na shrugged her shoulders. "I took her to my office temporarily.""Raised a ruckus at the reception counter?"Tang Ruochu scrutinized Gu Ruoruo with suspicion. "Did she not just reenter the entertainment industry? Why would she cause a fuss now when reporters could snap incriminating pictures of her anytime?"Then again, that has nothing to do with me.""Go ahead and have a chat with her. I'll leave."Li Na glanced at Gu Ruoruo before leaving and shutting the door softly.She had nothing to say to Gu Ruoruo, but she still walked to her side and gazed at her coldly.The corners of Gu Ruoruo's lips lifted into a sneer and she said with scorn, "Tang Ruochu, it's so difficult to catch a glimpse of you."Tang Ruochu lifted an eyebrow. "Of course. I'm very busy, so if you have something to say, spit it out. If not, scram.""You..." Gu Ruoruo stared daggers at Tang Ruochu as she spurned her p
"It's obvious that she harbors evil intentions. I'm no fool and can see it through," Tang Ruochu thought."I..." Gu Ruoruo had nothing to refute.In fact, she had no way to cure Tang Song's current illness, so she was merely trying to deceive Tang Ruochu.To her surprise, her intention was seen through.She bit her lips unwillingly."Get out of here with your evil intentions," Tang Ruochu said coldly.Gu Ruoruo knew that if she continued to pester her, she would only embarrass herself. Therefore, she grabbed the bag on the table and strode toward the door.When passing by Tang Ruochu, she glared at her and said, "Tang Ruochu, this is your choice. Don't regret it then.""Rest assured, I'll never regret it," Tang Ruochu said calmly. It sounded as if she did not take her words seriously at all.Gu Ruoruo gritted her teeth and strode away unwillingly.Seeing that Gu Ruoruo had left, Li Na walked over and looked at Tang Ruochu, who was wearing a frosty look. She asked worriedly, "
Gu Ruoruo was given the cold shoulder by Tang Ruochu, but she received a piece of good news from the company.Feng Feng had already arranged a role for her in his new movie. Although there might not be many scenes, she did not care. As long as she could show her face in Feng Feng's movie, she would have achieved a small success.Her efforts during this period were not in vain. Having meals and shopping with Feng Feng's wife had cost her an arm and a leg.Feng Feng doted on his wife, which was well-known in the entertainment circle, and his wife was the type of woman who was snobbish and vain. With just a few bags of famous brands, she successfully made her promise to fulfill her wish.The money was not spent for nothing.A smug smile crept up on the corner of Gu Ruoruo's mouth. It was just a small step for her to return to the entertainment circle.One day, she would become someone like Qin Yi'an."What? Is Feng Feng crazy?"When Tang Ruochu told Shen Mofei that Gu Ruoruo was g
Shen Mofei nodded hurriedly. "Yes, my brother. I'll tell him about it now."He picked up his cell phone instantly and was about to dial his number. At this point, Tang Ruochu's cold voice sounded. "Forget it. You don't have to tell your brother about it.""Why not?" Shen Mofei raised his head and looked at her in confusion."Because I like Feng Feng's work a lot, so I don't want the director to be replaced."It was not a lie. In the current entertainment circle, the only director she admired was Feng Feng. That was why she hoped that he would be able to shoot the inaugural work of the cooperation between Times Entertainment News and Thunderbolt Entertainment Group, which was also a reward for her preliminary efforts."But what about Gu Ruoruo?" Shen Mofei still couldn't accept the appearance of Gu Ruoruo in the movie cast by the company, which was more disgusting to him than swallowing a fly.Tang Ruochu didn't think it mattered at all. "It's just one scene. It'll be fine if I cl
