Chapter 316: Bad Luck!
Fei Bai who never gave a second thought to killing… faints at the sight of blood!?
Did she mishear him? Or had this world turned into a fantasy?
Still, Li Shiyao believed him. "Really?"
Seeing that Fei Bai was being so obedient, Li Shiyao said to him, "Don't… Don't you worry! I won't tell CEO Ning about your fear of seeing blood lest she dismisses you for it. I… I will protect you!"
Ning Meng was utterly speechless. She was positive that Fei Bai had been about to teach Wang Ran a lesson, but he did not expect to bump into Li Shiyao and thus, had had to resort to this tactic. In the end, the result was miraculously good. After all, who would have believed that with Boss Fei Bai's intellect, he would pretend to be weak and make himself look like a white lotus!
As for Wang Ran, it was certain that he would not bully Li Shiyao anymore. Since Ning Meng had achieved her purpose for coming over to this place today, she preferred to turn around and leave, not wanting to enter and disturb them.
While she was walking, her phone vibrated. Checking her notifications, she saw that there was a new message in the "Happy Idiots" group chat.
Zhen Shanmei: [Where is your clarification statement from the police? @Ning Meng]
Ning Meng sighed and sent a voice note over. After she had explained everything, she ended her voice note with, "We can only wait now."
Zhen Shanmei was not satisfied: [What's the point of only knowing the truth after half a month!? You would have already been terribly insulted and the hype would have died down by then! You said that you would explain everything today but have yet to make any moves, you even uninstalled your Weibo. The internet is going crazy over this. What should we do now?]
Ning Meng replied: [I'm embarrassed too.]
Qi Shan: [When you say that you're embarrassed, it reminded me of something that I did when I was younger.]
Ning Meng: [?]
Qi Shan: [I think it was back when I was in high school. I was once so mischievous that my dad slapped me. I was embarrassed and wanted to ask if he would like to eat something to cool down, but instead, I ended up asking him if he had eaten.]
Ning Meng: [??]
Zhen Shanmei: [??? Hahahaha, what happened next?]
Qi Shan: [After I had said that, I was even more embarrassed and wanted to explain myself, but I felt like it would be a waste of words. Besides, I had asked if he had eaten in a really cool manner, so I did not want to change that. My dad ended up hitting me badly. Well, that proved that he had eaten well.]
Zhen Shanmei: [Hahahahaha!]
Su Ye: [Hahahaha!]
Ning Meng: [Hahahahaha]
The tension in the group chat had eased up and Ning Meng's heavy heart from earlier had warmed up. She knew that this was Qi Shan's way of comforting others. She then said in the group: [Don't you guys worry, I have uninstalled the Weibo app anyway. They're only a sentence or two of insults, that would not make me any poorer. I don't mind!]
Zhen Shanmei: [Byeeee!!]
Qi Shan: [Byeeeee!]
Su Ye: [I'm ouuut!]
Li Shiyao: [Bye.]
Fei Bai: [Why are you all saying bye for?]
Ning Meng laughed and put away her phone.
‘It is scary that the internet has exploded. Still, this is precisely the time for us to be braver and stronger. So what if the truth only comes out much later? My innocence will be proven sooner or later. We don't need to care about what other people think, we just need to live our own lives.'
After dwelling in her thoughts, she headed out. Alas, the moment she stepped out of the production company, she coincidentally bumped into someone from the neighboring production company. It was none other than… Su Tiantian.
What bad luck!
