Chapter 316 – Actually, I Don’t Like Being Romantic (6)
Shen Liangchuan was given directions to a secluded villa district.
They arrived at a particular villa.
Mo Xicheng nodded with gratitude and said, “You go ahead.”
A frown appeared on Shen Liangchuan’s forehead, and he glanced at this ordinary house which could only at the very best be called a villa. “If I had known you were coming to such a place, I wouldn’t have given you a lift.”
A gloomy expression flashed across Mo Xicheng’s eyes. Without a word, he pushed open the passenger seat door.
As he got out of the car, someone grabbed his shoulder and following this…
A slap on his face.
“You unfilial son! You’ll be the death of me!”
A middle-aged woman’s voice rang loud and resonant.
Shen Liangchuan had just been in the midst of getting ready to drive off, but when he heard the voice, he froze and turned his head.
Mo Xicheng didn’t look too surprised, he stood there in silence.
Shen Liangchuan’s expression darkened.
Mo Xicheng had quick reflexes and Shen Liangchuan believed that if he had wanted to avoid the slap, he could have easily done it. But he…
Shen Liangchuan opened the front door and was about to say something. However, Mo Xicheng at once turned to him and said, “You should leave first.”
Shen Liangchuan paused and looked at him for a while before finally getting into the car and starting up the car engine.
His gaze was still fixed on the full-figured and fierce woman as he reversed the car.
Before he drove away, he heard the woman’s voice, “You’ve created such a scandal! Do you wish to be kicked out of the Mo Family? Unfilial son! I told you time and again not to join the entertainment industry, but you wouldn’t listen! Look at you now. Have you seen these articles about you on the internet! Let me tell you, you’re such a disgrace!”
“This is too much. Team One is really too much this time!” Shi Nianyao slammed the tabletop with great force. Her eyes were burning with anger.
Qiao Lian looked up. “What’s wrong this time?”
The day before, Team One had released news about Mo Xicheng being a middle-aged woman’s kept man. The matter had blown up and now it didn’t look like it would die down any time soon. On the contrary, it was becoming more dramatic.
All these years there had been very few articles about Mo Xicheng in the media. Now, he was making headlines all over the country.
Shi Nianyao faced Qiao Lian. “Someone managed to take a photo of my idol getting into a luxurious car and followed him all the way to a villa. They reported it this morning. These people have no idea that my idol was not there to visit the rumoured middle-aged woman!”
Upon hearing this, Qiao Lian frowned.
“There are no pictures?”
“There are pictures in the papers.”
Qiao Lian froze.
Shi Nianyao said angrily, “But the picture had been edited! I am very certain that my idol was at the new villa district all night, and he was not with any woman.”
Although Qiao Lian was not half as enamored with Mo Xicheng as Shi Nianyao, she had had a couple of encounters with him. Besides, during the popularity poll for Forget Chuan, Mo Xicheng had even assisted her by sharing the post.
Through these encounters, she had formed a good impression of him. She slammed the table angrily. “Just to get a headline! Where’s their integrity?”
Shi Nianyao nodded in agreement. “The initial report was just making guesses, but the moment the articles were published today, the internet has been flooded with criticisms to my idol. I sympathise with him so much now. I’m so inclined to get in touch with his manager and suggest they call a press conference to clarify the truth!”
