Chapter 424: Doesn’t Your Conscience Hurt?
Pei Nanxu and Pei Yutang probably felt guilty, as they sent ellipses instead of replying.
Lin Yan continued to send them smiley faces.
Her message was clear: Doesn’t your conscience hurt?
After a minute, she heard a WeChat notification.
Pei Yutang had sent her a huge red packet and dropped a line.
This Car Isn’t Going To Kindergarten had typed, ‘Big Sister-In-Law, you’ve suffered enough!’
Pei Nanxu sent her a red packet too.
Pei Nanxu wrote, ‘Big Sister-In-Law, it’s been hard on you.’
Lin Yan redeemed the sum of money in the red packets, feeling slightly more consoled.
At least they weren’t entirely cold-blooded…
Soon, Pei Yucheng came back with the soup.
Lin Yan scuttled to the TV as she yelled, “Let’s watch TV as we eat!”
At least it would distract her a little from the agony.
Pei Yucheng replied, “Okay.”
The two of them sat together quietly as they watched TV during dinner.
She was sitting with a gorgeous man in the most luxurious, expensive mansion in the capital city while eating dinner and watching TV. This was heaven on earth!
Alas! Her dream crumbled to ashes the minute she took a bite of the meat. She felt as though the Grim Reaper was marching towards her with a sickle…
“Yesterday, Star Entertainment’s Gao Zhiwei uploaded a Weibo post, accusing actress Lin Yan of prostitution in return for a favor to return to the company. The other party rejected her offer. When the news broke out, it caused an uproar online instantly…”
Lin Yan was chewing on the meat when she heard the news about her. The report caught her by surprise.
“Cough… Cough…” Lin Yan choked and coughed violently.
Why would she chance upon her own news when she had just randomly turned on a channel?
Pei Yucheng seemed to have noticed the content of the news and turned his attention to it.
“It’s widely known that Lin Yan has been involved in several scandals with many other celebrities. However, she won moviegoers over with her performance in Meeting One’s Match recently. Who would have thought that in a matter of days, she would be hit by such a scandalous rumor…”
The channel supported live comments, thus allowing the public to post their opinion. As a result, the screen was flooded with comments.
Only a tiny minority of comments were doubting the credibility of Gao Zhiwei’s accusation. They pointed out that the photo that the paparazzi had taken, only depicted Lin Yan entering Star Entertainment. It wasn’t evidence. However, everyone else ignored that and uploaded sharp criticism.
‘What do you mean there was no evidence? He is the director of an entertainment company. He has stepped forward to testify against her. Why would he accuse her?’
‘The paparazzi’s photo has been released, alright? If she wasn’t guilty, why would she meet Gao Zhiwei at night? Even her fellow artist, An Qianqian, testified against her. When there’s such solid evidence, how could Lin Yan try to wriggle out of this one? She has been keeping quiet so far. Doesn’t that mean she is guilty?’
‘This woman is really gross! Before this happened, I had fallen for her as Lin Pianruo. Now, I feel as though she has fed me sh*t! She isn’t fit to play my goddess!’
‘This poisonous tumor should be kicked out of the entertainment industry!’
Lin Yan had gotten used to this vicious criticism. However, she suddenly shivered as a chill traveled down her spine…
