Joshua gently embraced Hazel and said, "Don't be afraid. It's okay now."
Hazel suddenly felt tears in her eyes. She felt angry and frustrated, but when Joshua just said one sentence, she felt weak and victimized.
She clearly did not do anything wrong, but she had to listen to the personal attacks happening on the internet.
Hazel leaned on Joshua's chest and struggled with her emotions.
"Someone is there! Go check it out!" Two people shouted and ran towards them.
Hazel was shocked and wanted to run. Joshua took her wrist, "Come with me."
Hazel took a step and stumbled.
"What happened? "
Joshua smirked."Hazel, do you think you would have any chance to get away if I really want to do something to you?" He asked softly, amused by her reaction.Hazel was a little annoyed, and Joshua was deliberately teasing her."That..." Hazel could not finish her sentence."Don't think too much," Joshua whispered, "I'll handle the rest. Rest assured, this matter will be resolved soon,"Hazel looked at him in surprise. He actually knew what she was about to say?Joshua found her long after the comments started, so he knew what had happened."Sleep early." Joshua caressed her head gently.Haz
"I have a better plan," Joshua looked at her profoundly, "But I need your approval.""What's the plan?" Hazel hurriedly asked."We can give a reasonable statement to kill the rumor of a shady deal." Joshua's eyes flickered, "The best way is to give a story that everyone can accept. For example,…"Hazel looked at him quietly."We had known each other long ago, and we fell in love, but we were separated for some reason. And we meet again in the surrogacy competition, and we are now together again." Joshua stared at Hazel.Hazel's face changed.She suddenly thought about the news that she saw on the Internet.The media said that th
"You can also confirm with Isaac regarding this." Joshua's eyes fell on the last photo.His eyes went dark, "In this photo, Hazel was out with schoolmates. This is her tutor's car."Joshua looked at the reporters and, with a serious tone, quickly replied, "Hazel is a very good, simple, and traditional girl. She would not participate in any sexual activity for money.”In Denmark Residence, Hazel got an unexpected message on her phone. She got the news from her roommate that Joshua was hosting a live press conference.Hazel opened the live channel app. She did not expect that Joshua would clarify the situation for her first. She looked at Joshua on her cell phone. He was so handsome and courteous.The reporters were stunn
The Denmark Group would be affected by this public opinion storm. Hazel closed the browser on her phone and put it down beside her. Her mind had become a mess of thoughts.This was not right.Did she misunderstand Joshua? As the so-called "shady deal" in the surrogacy competition was disclosed, Denmark Group and Joshua were affected.Was he even willing to put Denmark Group and himself at risk just for her to stay?That did not make sense.Hazel didn't feel that she was that irresistible, and Joshua could not be that stupid.Then what's wrong?Hazel picked up her cell phone and scrolled through her contacts, stopping at Joshua.<
Hazel smiled at Jaxson and turned back without any words.Maybe it would be better if she and Joshua just let go of each other. Without answering Jaxson, Hazel went into the dormitory.The public opinion on the Internet quickly calmed down, and like Hazel was completely forgotten and never discussed again.Hazel knew clearly Joshua must have intervened.He said that he hoped the media would stop bothering Hazel and not talk about it anymore during his press conference.There was still some negative discussion about her on the campus forum. It was about Hazel ruining the reputation of a girl. Hazel knew that this must be Kyla making her look bad, but she didn't care that much.But
"What is the solution?" The Student Union president hurriedly asked.Karla gave him a wink, and the two of them went to the empty classroom next door."President," Karla whispered. "Let's invite Joshua for the Celebrity Lecture on the weekend..."“Hazel is not willing to help.” The Student Union president frowned, “Karla, can you make it happen?”"President, you don't understand what I meant." Karla sneered, "I mean, no matter whether Hazel agrees or disagrees, we all declare that Hazel promised to help us to invite Joshua. More importantly, it is best to let everyone on campus know about this event!"The president of the Student Union looked at her curiously, "You mean, let's release the news first, a
The Celebrity Lecture was about to begin, but Joshua had not arrived yet. The people waiting in the auditorium were restless and chattering about whether or not he would show up.“We won’t be fooled, will we?”“Yeah, Joshua said he would not pester Hazel anymore. How could he possibly accept her invitation?”“It seems to me that Hazel was dumped and wanted to seize the chance to gain back some popularity!”“Very likely it was because Joshua was embarrassed by Hazel that he would say so to the reporters. In fact, it’s Hazel who’s been pestering Joshua.”***Their voices grew louder and louder as their r
He smiled lightly. It was good enough as long as Hazel was willing to talk to him.“You didn’t?” he asked.“There are too many people,” she said. “I watched the live stream video.”“There was a Livestream video?” He was surprised.“Yes.” She nodded. “A classmate offered to show it on a Livestream website for whoever couldn’t squeeze into the auditorium.”He nodded his head. Looking at the small shops on both sides, he asked calmly, “What would you like to eat?”“Chicken wings, French fries, blueberry sundae.” She pointed to the end of the food street. “They're in the s
