Chapter 322 – Be My Girlfriend (2)
“Damn! I have no words to describe this! Team One is made up of total freaks! I can’t believe they wrote this. How low can they go?!”
Shi Nianyao cursed and swore at Team One for a good couple of minutes. However Qiao Lian could also sense her guilt beneath the anger.
After all, she had been the one who had posted the picture.
She had been out to prove Mo Xicheng’s innocence, but now she had dragged him into an even bigger mess.
If worse had come to worst, Mo Xicheng could have argued his way out that there was actually true love between him and his ‘sugar mummy.’
But if pictures of him being intimate with another man were to circulate, then the situation could get quite ugly.
Having vented her anger, Shi Nianyao now sounded quite anxious, “Chief Editor Lian Lian, what should we do now?”
Qiao Lian let out a cough and replied, “Stay calm.”
Shi Nianyao said with a deep sigh, “Oh, what a rotten luck my idol has!”
“This is typical of the entertainment circle. Don’t worry, we’ll come up with a new story to help Mo Xicheng clear his name.”
“Okay, let me do the writing now. I’ll send it to you in 10 minutes for posting on social media.”
Qiao Lian nodded.
Shi Nianyao’s incisive piece was completed on time as promised.
Logging into her account to spread the article, she then noticed…
“Why is my account locked?” She frowned.
As Qiao Lian was anxiously trying to get home as soon as possible, a call from Liu Zhixing came in, “Qiao Lian, I’d like you to take leave for the next two days. You don’t need to come to work.”
Sensing something amiss, Qiao Lian asked, “Did you lock my account, Managing Editor?”
“Why did you do that?”
“Because this is not the right time to publish any clarification article for Mo Xicheng.”
Before Qiao Lian could say another word, the Managing Editor said, “That will be all.” Then he ended the call.
It was obvious he had no intention to clear Mo Xicheng’s name!
Although a clarification article would get more attention, the Managing Director would rather give up the idea. Was he being held hostage by someone?
Qiao Lian’s fingers shook with exasperation. “This is way too much! Someone is clearly targeting Mo Xicheng and has no intention to let it go until he’s destroyed! Who could that be? And why?”
Shen Liangchuan was in the driver’s seat when he heard this. He lowered his eyes, lost in his thoughts.
Shi Nianyao was desperate. The situation needed to be dealt with immediately.
There was a massive jam on her way to work the next day and she was late.
Her cell phone rang immediately after parking in the basement.
Qiao Lian, who was on the other end, asked, “Where are you now, Nianyao?”
“What’s up? I’m just at the basement.”
“Mo Xicheng’s manager is here in the newsroom, looking for you. He said he needs to discuss some matters with you.”
Shi Nianyao replied, “I’m on my way up.”
She hung up and rushed her way up to the office.
She suddenly stopped in her tracks.
She was so nervous her heart was pounding. She was about to meet her idol’s manager, so she mustn’t leave a bad impression.
She briskly walked to the nearest car and looked into her own reflection. As she quickly groomed herself, she suddenly realized… her chest was a tad too flat and unflattering?
She reached for her assets, and began to squeeze and shape them consciously. Eventually, she managed to create a barely visible cleavage.
And exactly at this point in time…
The car window was wound down.
Following this, the annoyingly handsome face of Mo Xicheng emerged.
Shi Nianyao froze in stupor and was stunned.
