196 Tingting said that he wanted to purchase a film production company. He’s doing that for you, you know?
"I don't have a choice, he said all those nasty things to ruin my reputation, to humiliate me. Think about it, if I wanted to gain popularity, I could have just made use of Nian Junting, he's even more influential than Yi Jingxi. Do I really need to hanker with two men?"
"Why is Yi Jingxi treating you this way?" Xiao Si narrowed his eyes in disbelief.
"He says that my family owes it to him," Luosang frowned and mulled for a moment, "If you don't believe me, you can ask around within the entertainment industry. Yi Jingxi went around and told the crew members not to hire me as a voice actor, I haven't been able to find a project since Zhong Yi came to Xia City. All the directors here know about that."
Xiao Si was starting to believe her.
If Yi Jingxi was really the perpetrator behind Luosang's misfortune, he was indeed a despicable man. No matter what Luosang's father did, Yi Jingxi had taken down the entire Xu corporation and found himself such a beautiful girlfriend. It should have been enough revenge, but he still wanted to drive his ex-fiancé up against a wall, what kind of vengeance did he harbor.
"Why didn't you tell Tingting all this?"
Luosang chuckled apathetically, "I had to quit school and leave An City because of the vicious rumors about me. I grew tired of how heartless and cruel people were, I had enough of the judgmental looks they gave me, their avoidance of my presence. I was afraid, afraid that it would happen here again. I was scared that people would identify me as the daughter of a criminal, judge me along with my father's crimes. I am only telling you my story now as I don't want you to think otherwise of me, it's my painful past and it hurts me every time I recount it. It will be the greatest scar of my life, I just wanted to clear things up with you. It's up to you if you want to believe me or not."
She turned to leave.
"Do you still love Yi Jingxi?" Xiao Si shouted.
"Love?" Luosang turned around incredulously, "How is that possible?"
"That's good, if you can't forget about Yi Jingxi, then stay away from Tingting," Xiao Si hesitated before speaking softly, "I was there tonight because Tingting said that he wanted to purchase a film production company. He's doing that for you, you know? He said that now that you're his girlfriend, he has the responsibility to find you the best resources available regardless of whether you're receptive of his help."
Luosang looked at him in a daze, she felt her heart fluttering.
Nian Junting's handsome face appeared in her mind, she could picture him telling her that he would give her the best things in the world.
She thought that he didn't mean what he said, but he was already executing his promises to her behind her back.
Last night, she still turned him down like that.
"The film that is on hold, I'll settle it for you. Don't go looking for Yi Jingxi again," Xiao Si turned to leave.
Luosang stood in the same spot for ages before taking the train back to school.
She was in a daze the entire train ride back to the school campus.
She didn't know whether to count that night as luck or misfortune, Xiao Si should be able to settle the issue as he promised, but she didn't know whether he would tell Nian Junting about what happened that night.
By the time she got back to the dormitory, it was already 9pm. She flung herself onto her bed before taking a shower.
The wine stain on her face had already dried up but the humiliation was stuck on her as she replayed the scene again and again in her mind.
Suddenly, her phone rang, it was a local number.
"Hello, who's this…"
