“Nice to meet you,” Fang Qiu replied with a smile.
The reporter said, “Thank you for taking the time to have this interview.”
Fang Qiu replied humbly, “It’s my honor.”
“All right, let’s start now?” the reporter asked.
Fang Qiu nodded. “All right.”
The reporter then proposed, “When I came over just now, I found that the lighting in the lobby was pretty good. Why don’t we go there?”
“All right.” Fang Qiu nodded, reaching out his hand like a gentleman and letting the reporter go first.
Then a group of people walked to the gate of the hotel.
Li Huawen also followed up, so did Jiang Miaoyu. She completely forgot what Fang Qiu had just said, which was to leave the food there and wait for him to come back and eat.
The hotel lobby was quite wide.
The reporter chose the rest area on the right side of the gate.
Director Li Huawen and Jiang Miaoyu came to the rest area on the left side of the gate and sat down, watching the reporter of Network News Broadcast and Fang Qiu in the distance.
“Please take a seat.”
As they came to the rest area, the reporter stretched out her hand and motioned for Fang Qiu to sit on a two-seat sofa which had better lighting. Then she sat on the single-seat sofa next to Fang Qiu. A girl with a notebook in her hand sat on the opposite side to record the interview while the cameraman paced back and forth to find a suitable location.
A moment later, the cameraman stretched out his hand to signal that he was ready.
The interview began.
“Hello, Fang Qiu.”
As the recording began, the reporter said to Fang Qiu with a smile, “Chinese Medicine is inherited from the ancestors of Huaxia. Since Shennong tasted all kinds of herbs, Chinese Medicine has always been developing. Today’s Chinese Medicine industry is flourishing. As a great talent of today’s younger generation in Chinese Medicine, can you tell us your understanding of Chinese Medicine and your expectation for the future of Chinese Medicine?”
As a matter of fact, on the way to the hotel lobby, the reporter had already informed Fang Qiu of what she wanted to talk about in the interview.
This time, the Network News Broadcast was ready to broadcast a piece of news about the development of Chinese Medicine in Huaxia. Because Fang Qiu was now the most popular person in the field of Chinese Medicine, as well as the idol of the young generation, he was the right person to do this interview.
Fang Qiu also knew that the time limit of this news report was about one minute. And they gave Fang Qiu 30 seconds to finish his speech, so they needed Fang Qiu to think about what he was going to say in advance. Then he could smoothly finish what he needed to say in 30 seconds.
It was not difficult for Fang Qiu at all.
He directly started the recording without any practice.
“Chinese Medicine has a history of 5,000 years. It is the collective wisdom of healing diseases, which has accumulated through the continuous trails by ancient scholars and doctors. It carries the ancient people’s experience and theoretical knowledge of fighting against diseases in ancient Huaxia. It contains Huaxia’s traditional philosophy ideas and is the treasure trove of Huaxia civilization.”
As Fang Qiu heard the reporter’s question, he answered without thinking, “Now, people have misunderstandings and ignorance about Chinese Medicine, but in fact, Chinese Medicine has a very scientific and strict treatment system. Chinese Medicine isn’t powerful enough now. Its revival needs the guidance of predecessors and our generation’s effort to inherit and promote Chinese Medicine. It still has a long way to go, but I believe that Chinese Medicine has a bright future and the inheritance of 5,000 years will never fall!”
“Okay, thank you for having this interview.”
The reporter didn’t expect that Fang Qiu would say it so smoothly, which was more perfect than her expectation.
The recording stopped.
The reporter then changed her manner. Instead of being serious and clam like she was just now, she looked like an ordinary woman. When she looked at Fang Qiu, her eyes always lit up.
She asked, “Fang Qiu, can, can I take a picture with you?”
“Of course.” Fang Qiu nodded at once.
“Thank you.” The reporter quickly stepped forward and stood next to Fang Qiu. She struck a cute pose and let the cameraman took a picture with her polaroid. When the photo came out, she took out a pen and handed it to Fang Qiu with the photo.
The reporter said, “Could you please sign an autograph for me? Thank you.”
Fang Qiu didn’t say anything and just took it and signed his name.
“Thank you.” As she received the autographed photo, the reporter laughed excitedly.
After she thanked Fang Qiu with gratitude, she left with satisfaction.
Seeing that the interview was over, Director Li Huawen and Jiang Miaoyu rushed over.
“Kid, you nailed it this time.”
Walking to Fang Qiu, Director Li Huawen directly stretched out his hand and patted Fang Qiu on the shoulder, exclaiming, “If you can show yourself in the Network News Broadcast for 30 seconds, not to mention anything else, the exposure of these 30 seconds is worth at least a few million.”
Fang Qiu said, “The interview happened so fast. It was all very sudden. If I had known this earlier, I would have brought with me the sign of the Young Chinese Medicine Doctor.”
“Ha-ha.” Director Li Huawen laughed and said, “This time there will be pictures of the Young Chinese Medicine Doctor on Network News Broadcast and they will make an important introduction!”
In the University of Jiangjing Chinese Medicine. “Beep, beep, beep…”
At nine o’clock in the morning, Li Qingshi received a call from a strange number.
“Hello.” He picked up the phone.
“I’m here.” A voice came from the other end of the line, saying, “In Room 113.”
“Okay, I’ll be right there.” Li Qingshi nodded and hung up the phone. He reached out his hand to lift his glasses and then left the school with a sneer.
Mocha Cafe was two blocks away from the University of Jiangjing Chinese Medicine. It was neither too far nor too near.
After walking for about five minutes, Li Qingshi came to the cafe and entered the private room.
At this time, with a crew cut, a young man who was also wearing glasses and a formal suit sat in the private room.
“Nice to meet you, Mr. Li.” As he saw Li Qingshi coming in, the young man immediately stood up, pointed to the coffee on the table, and said, “I’ve already ordered the coffee for you. If you need anything, you can order at any time.”
“It’s okay. I don’t need it.” Li Qingshi smiled, sat down, and said, “Let’s get down to business.”
“Good, you’re straightforward.”
The young man laughed and said, “It’s very simple. You just need to repost a post we sent on Weibo.”
“Oh?” Stunned, Li Qingshi asked, “What post?”
“I will write a post about the feud between you and Fang Qiu. Of course, I won’t directly give out the names of you and Fang Qiu. Instead, I will use the initials of your surnames as the code names. Then, someone will naturally lead these two code names to you and Fang Qiu on the Internet. Then, you just need to repost this Weibo and attach one sentence, ‘Justice naturally inhabits man’s heart, it will soon come out in the wash’. And that’s what you need to do.”
Speaking of this, the young man smirked and said, “Of course, you haven’t done anything wrong to your classmates. Your code name is just a code. If someone wants an explanation, we just need to come up with an excuse. When it’s done, I’ll give you this amount of money!”
Speaking of which, the young man stretched out his hands and held up his ten fingers.
Li Qingshi asked, “One hundred thousand?”
The young man asked with a smile, “How about that?”
“I’m curious about one thing.” Li Qingshi raised his eyebrows and said, “I don’t know much about the Internet. Although I have a Weibo account, I rarely use it. But I also know that there are a few people who follow me on my Weibo account, which is about three or four hundred people, most of whom are my friends and classmates. Even if I repost your article, it won’t be of much use, right?”
“It’s simple.” The young man laughed out loud and said, “What I want is your identity as Fang Qiu’s classmate. As long as you repost it, the paid Internet trolls we hired will naturally repost it, lead the discussion, and make it to the real-time topic list on Weibo. At that time, Fang Qiu’s reputation will be ruined. Not only will you get your revenge, but you will also get 100,000 yuan as a reward. You may even get a lot of fans and become a celebrity on Weibo.”
“Really?” Li Qingshi’s eyes lit up.
The young man said, “Of course. As long as you cooperate well with me and keep our cooperation as a secret, you can get everything I say.”
“All right.” Li Qingshi nodded at once.
“That’s settled then. When I get back, I’ll immediately prepare an article. Let’s use coffee as a substitute for wine. I’m looking forward to our further cooperation.”
There was a clink of glasses.
A moment later, Li Qingshi left the cafe.
On the way back to the University of Jiangjing Chinese Medicine, he wore a sneer on his face all the way.
As expected, at three o’clock in the afternoon, an article with the initials “L” and “F” as the main characters to represent Fang Qiu and Li Qingshi was published on Weibo.
In this article, it wrote about the feud between L and F.
The short article directly shaped F into an extremely arrogant and selfish person and made L become a pitiful and aggrieved person.
Obviously, “L” stood for Li Qingshi while “F” was Fang Qiu!
Everything in the article was fabricated.
As soon as the article was posted, it got the reposts of those marketing Weibo accounts immediately.
“I seem to know who they are.”
“Recently, ‘F’ is really popular.”
“I really don’t understand what these young men are doing. If he had known that he would become famous now, he shouldn’t have done these evil things a few years ago.”
For a moment, those famous Weibo accounts reposted the post and also made some ambiguous comments.
After that, a large number of paid Internal trolls appeared.
“Who can tell me who L and F are?”
“There’s no need to guess. It’s so obvious.”
“Who on earth are they?”
“These two are in the same university. ‘F’ is a young man who is really popular right now and also studies medicine. Of course, it’s Fang Qiu.”
“What about the president of the student union of this university, the ‘L’?”
“Someone has already confirmed it. The president of the student union of UJCM is Li Qingshi. He has had a lot of grievances with Fang Qiu in the university.”
“Fang Qiu and Li Qingshi?”
“What the f*ck. Fang Qiu is so awesome that even the student union’s president can’t beat him?”
“He is sinister and cunning!”
In the crazy comments and reposts of the marketing accounts and the paid Internet trolls, the article soon became popular.
At the same time, Li Qingshi, who was browsing through Weibo in his dormitory, just received a text message.
“The article has been posted. Repost it now.” It was the young man’s number.
As soon as he received the text message, Li Qingshi also saw the post that went viral on Weibo. He immediately clicked and reposted it. And he also wrote the sentence as requested, “The truth will soon come out in the wash!”
Although Li Qingshi missed one sentence which was “Justice naturally inhabits man’s heart”, the young man who had already returned to his company smirked as he saw Li Qingshi’s repost.
It didn’t matter whether he missed the sentence now.
All he needed to do next was to hire more paid Internet trolls and continue to make a big fuss about this article!
Before that, he had to call Li Qingshi first.
