Actually, you don't need to thank me. You should thank...
After Qiao Anhao hung up the phone, Song Xiangsi's words echoed in her mind.
Even though she had the Xu family and Qiao family behind her, neither family agreed for her to get mixed up with the complex world of the entertainment industry. And so, without a doubt, neither would help her fix the scandal she had caused. They'd only go to Weibo's official staff to block those rumors rather than turn to Song Xiangsi to clear things up.
She herself was just a new actress in the entertainment industry. She had only met the people in the crew during filming, so they weren't close enough with her to step out to help. Not to mention, there were very few people in the crew. In the afternoon, they were the ones who made fun of her, and people who she did have good relations with were only third rate actors. They obviously weren't Song Xiangsi's level. And so, after thinking about it, the only person Qiao Anhao could think of who would turn to Song Xiangsi for help was Lu Jinnian.
With that thought, Qiao Anhao's heart began to quiver.
That Weibo post looked as though Song Xiangsi stood out to help her clear things up, but in reality, she had used her celebrity influence to stir up the conversation.
However, there are many ways to kill a scandal. Why would Lu Jinnian specifically choose a way that would help her out the most?
Moreover... this way, not only did it help her, it trashed the person who fanned the rumors...
With that thought, Qiao Anhao's heart raced - dong-dong-dong - as it beat particularly quickly, like it would jump out of her mouth at any moment.
Perhaps Lu Jinnian didn't really do it for her but was punis.h.i.+ng the person who spread the rumors, and she just happened to be caught in the middle and benefited from it. After all, the scandal also dragged down Lu Jinnian. For him to take action wouldn't be odd... right? That must be it... Deep down, Qiao Anhao warned herself over and over again to not let her imagination run wild here.
Even though Lu Jinnian found out from Song Xiangsi that Qiao Anhao was fine now, he was still a little worried.
The variety show contract that Qiao Anhao wanted was meant to be signed next week, but to make an excuse to see her, he called his a.s.sistant to get the contract from the television company early.
When his a.s.sistant returned with the contract, it was already eleven at night. Lu Jinnian gave it a quick read to confirm there weren't any problems. He let his a.s.sistant leave, then sat in his hotel room, alone and in silence for a while. In the end, he got up, grabbed the contract, and headed downstairs.
Last night, Qiao Anhao had left Lu Jinnian's room after twelve at night. As she had an early shoot the next morning, she took a shower at ten.
The bathroom door was close to the room door, so just as Qiao Anhao got out from the shower, she heard a knock.
Zhao Meng was busy with something at the moment, so she shouted to Qiao Anhao, "Qiao Qiao, you're closer to the door. Could you get that?"
