Chapter 344: Delicate Temperament
EndlessFantasy Translation EndlessFantasy Translation
Ning Meng and Liu Meow raised their heads and saw a girl walking onto the stage.
She was about the same height as Ning Meng and her face… Hmm? She was quite a gorgeous young lady too.
She had a pink comfy sweater on, waving at the crowd with a gentle smile. The corner of her eyes was slanted upward, displaying a great allure to them.
Ning Meng could not help but feel a sense of familiarity from this young lady. She felt as though she had seen her before, however, no matter how hard she tried to recall, she could not remember where she had seen this face.
Suddenly, Liu Meow shook her arm, pulling her back from her deep thoughts.
Ning Meng lowered her head and saw the little girl was gesturing for her to bend down. It seemed that she had something to say to her.
When Ning Meng had bent down, Liu Meow whispered into her ear, “Sis, that comic artist looks a lot like you!”
Ning Meng widened her eyes in disbelief as she looked at the Comic Artist “Ning Meng” on the stage.
The girl’s hair was bound in a ponytail, looking lively and lovely. Her slightly slanted eyes were gorgeous to look at, however, there was a vibe of sternness from them, giving off the impression that she was not a person to be messed with.
Holding a microphone in her hand, “Ning Meng” greeted her fans, “Good day, everyone! I’m your friendly comic artist, Ning Meng! I’m so happy to finally meet you all today. I’m very grateful to all of you for being willing to set aside your daily obligations to come here to meet me. Thank you for your support.”
Then, she gave everyone a bow before introducing herself.
“I’m sure you all know me by my pen name, ‘Ning Meng’. My real name, however, is Ning Ke. I’m an orphan, and I have liked drawing pictures since young. After graduating from high school, I went to an art college overseas. I’ve been living overseas over the last few years. ‘Ride With The Wind’ was my first work after graduating from college. Right now, ‘Young Huo’s Wild Girl’, the comic that I’m currently drawing, is based on my real high school life. The story revolves around high school kids, so the theme will be a little light-hearted and kiddish. I hope you all like it.”
An orphan. Loves drawing. Art college. “Ride With The Wind”… Other than not having the same real name, this Ning Ke had almost the same background as her in the “real world”!
Ning Meng stared at Ning Ke speechlessly.
The girl was standing there, smiling nervously as she swiped her bangs.
This little gesture when she got nervous… it was the same as hers too!
This Ning Ke was like an exact copy of her! A doppelganger!
However, wasn’t this the world inside the novel? If so, how would a copy of her exist here…?
Wait, perhaps this was not the world inside the novel? But rather, it was a parallel universe?
Furrowing her brows, Ning Meng felt as though she now had more questions than answers compared to before.
As everyone was lining up to get their books signed and seize a chance to shake hands with Ning Ke, suddenly, someone among the crowd yelled out loudly, “Ning Ke! Your comics look like pieces of sh*t! They are so ugly that they’re worth less than dung! I can’t imagine how you mustered up your courage to hold a book signing event like this! How shameless!”
Ning Meng turned toward the direction of the voice.
Haters. They were everywhere!
The staff hurried down from the stage to remove the hater from the scene.
The fans looked toward Ning Ke sympathetically, some of them even tried to comfort her. “Ning Meng, it’s just a hater. Don’t feel bad about it…”
If it was any other normal person, she would probably be in tears after being bashed like this.
However, Ning Ke raised her chin and smiled. “Why should I feel bad about it? Taking care of their kind is the work of PETA, there’s no way I would be bothered by them.”
It took a few seconds before the fans realized that Ning Ke was hinting that that hater was nothing but an animal.
In an instant, the crowd started to laugh.
“Oh, she has a great sense of humor. And a delicate temperament too!”
“Yeah, she was scolding people without using any slurs at all!”
The fans started to discuss Ning Ke’s creative comeback earlier.
Ning Meng looked at everyone, still surprised at Ning Ke’s way of handling the situation.
