Chapter 326 – Be My Girlfriend (6)
The worst thing was that Su Meimei had made use of the news agency’s official Weibo account to release a report denying that the sub-account was hers.
“She’s utterly shameless!” the infuriated Shi Nianyao said and clenched her fists. Her eyes were already slightly bloodshot.
To Qiao Lian this was hitting a new low for the news agency.
The post had been published under the new agency’s main account and it would remain there, regardless of any staff member resigning.
Shi Nianyao was at a complete loss for words. The two of them sat in the office staring at each other, until Shi Nianyao finally broke the silence, “So what do we do now?”
What to do now?
Qiao Lian had the same question in her mind.
Su Meimei’s determination to drag Mo Xicheng through the mud was unshakeable, and they felt helpless against it.
She picked up her cell phone. “Let me ask Best Actor Shen.”
The call was picked up quickly.
Shen Liangchuan’s deep voice was as attractive as ever, “What’s up?”
Qiao Lian was straight to the point, “Have you read the news about Mo Xicheng?”
There was a pause on Shen Liangchuan’s end.
She had not stopped talking about Mo Xicheng since last night, and now he was hearing that guy’s name again.
He wasn’t going to admit he was jealous, he was just slightly less worried now. “Yes, I have.”
“And?” Qiao Lian asked anxiously. “What do we do now? Can you explain to him that our accounts have been locked down by the managing editor and he won’t unlock them? The only person releasing any articles now is the managing editor’s assistant.”
“Hmmm.” Shen Liangchuan digressed, “What are you having for lunch?”
Taken aback by the sudden change of topic, Qiao Lian replied, “I don’t know yet.”
“Then don’t eat out.”
“Huh?” Did Best Actor Shen mean for her to starve?
“There’ll be a delivery.”
Qiao Lian was surprised once again. “What?”
Then quite quickly, she realized what was going on. “You’re ordering takeaway for me?”
Was Best Actor Shen starting to show the tender side of himself?
How sweet and considerate was that!
Qiao Lian was a little dazed from the change in him after she hung up the phone, and only realized that she had forgotten all about Mo Xicheng when she saw Shi Nianyao’s worried expression.
Shen Liangchuan was now in his office.
And sitting across him… were Mo Xicheng and Mo Xicheng’s manager.
Shen Liangchuan turned to look at Mo Xicheng after he hung up the phone.
The manager leaned towards Shen Liangchuan. “Best Actor Shen, we’re sorry to have to trouble you. We don’t have a choice but to get you involved to clear Brother Mo’s name. We’re truly grateful.”
“There’s no need to thank me for anything that I do for Mo Xicheng.” His short reply silenced Mo Xicheng’s manager immediately.
Shen Liangchuan then turned to Mo Xicheng. “Even if I were to clarify that we were indeed together two nights ago, you’ll have to take care of the matter with the widow.”
Mo Xicheng leaned back in the sofa looking a little distracted, as though he was used to such things and they no longer bothered him.
His manager quickly added, “That’s right, Brother Shen. Do you have any suggestions as to how we should deal with this?”
After a pause, Shen Liangchuan said, “There’s only one way.”
Shi Nianyao was in a dilemma as she held her cell phone, thinking how best to clear Mo Xicheng’s name, when suddenly a call came in. It was from Mo Xicheng.
She jumped and picked up the call nervously.
She expected that Mo Xicheng was going to give her a hard time about the news report, but to her great astonishment he said, “Be my girlfriend.”
Shi Nianyao was stunned and rendered speechless!
