The Film Tycoon’s National Sister (58)
Lu Zixi felt his heart plummet. His voice shook as he asked, “What?”
Wasn’t he told that the car accident wouldn’t affect her?
Why was she in critical condition?
Xiao Yi: “The whole internet is black, ah, your fans’ attack power is just too terrible. I’ve been drowned in spit for trying to clear things up for Bai Weiwei.”
Xiao Yi also didn’t dare to reveal that Bai Weiwei was Lu Zixi’s sister.
After all, for a family on the level of the Lu family.
One small misstep could lead to drastic consequences1. Since Lu Zixi hadn’t made a statement, how could he dare break the news?
So he could only clarify that Bai Weiwei had not followed the unspoken rules.
As a result, the fans accused him of sleeping with Bai Weiwei.
Xiao Yi was scared enough to piss himself. If Lu Zixi came back and saw this kind of black material, he’d skin Xiao Yi alive.
Lu Zixi, frowning, went online.
When he read the comments from his over-the-top fans, his face immediately darkened.
He clutched his phone. “And Bai Weiwei?”
Words on the Internet could kill. Wouldn’t she be frightened by such terrible words?
Xiao Yi: “She seemed to have seen the balck material on the internet and ran out of the hospital. We don’t know where she went.”
Lu Zixi’s eyes turned sharp and malicious. “You actually let her get away.”
Xiao Yi trembled in fear. “I was negligent…”
Lu Zixi said furiously: “Enough, hurry and find her.”
He didn’t dare think about how hurt Bai Weiwei would be after reading those crazy comments online.
Lu Zixi used everything in his power to look for Bai Weiwei. Very quickly, he found her.
She was in a small rented apartment.
She hadn’t gone out in the past few days.
Lu Zixi hurried back to China.
Meanwhile, Bai Weiwei was in the process of placing cucumber slices on her face.
System: “The male lead has arrived. The door will open in a minute.”
Bai Weiwie’s hand jerked. She instantly threw the cucumber slices in the trash can.
Then she started running around with a knife in her hand. “I haven’t even put on my makeup yet! My appearance is too sloppy for grinding favorability points. What should I do?”
Suddenly, the door was opened.
Bai Weiwei, who had just been running around in a panic a second ago, immediately changed her expression.
She rubbed her eyes, and her beautiful apricot eyes turned red.
She pursed her petal-like lips, and her expression morphed into one of sorrow.
Her hair was unkempt and tangled. She wore her pajamas, and she only had one shoe on. Her entire person was shaggy and bedraggled.
Lu Zixi used the landlord’s key to unlock the door. The first thing he saw was his sister, holding a fruit knife and a devastated look on her face.
He immediately thought she wanted to kill herself.
“Weiwei, don’t do something foolish.”
He was so tense his muscles ached as he fixed his gaze on the knife in her hand.
For a moment, Bai Weiwei was lost. What foolish thing? Then she noticed the knife in her hand.
She used it to cut the cucumber.
Lu Zixi’s breath caught. “Don’t hurt yourself. I can handle the things online, don’t listen to them.”
Bai Weiwei was so weak and helpless. How many words of abuse did she face, how much despair was she in for her to hide here and want to commit suicide?
But he had left her and gone abroad.
【Ding, the male lead’s favorability is 87.】
Bai Weiwei finally reacted. She dazedly stared at Lu Zixi, tears spilling from her eyes.
“Didn’t you not want me anymore? Why did you come back?”
Lu Zixi was so distressed he didn’t know what to say. “It’s all gege’s fault. Why would I not want you?”
Bai Weiwei got into the act within a second. She looked at him with grievance and sorrow. “They all said that I, that I slept with other men.”
Lu Zixi approached her slowly. His voice was strained with anguish. “You didn’t. They’re all bad people, don’t listen to them.”
Bai Weiwei was dazed. “They didn’t say anything wrong. I am nothing. What right do I have to act? Everyone has abandoned me. What am I still alive for?”
Lu Zixi abruptly rushed forward. He snatched the knife from her hand and threw it aside, then he pulled her into his arms and hugged her tightly.
His eyes immediately grew wet.
【Ding, the male lead’s favorability is 90.】
Bai Weiwei stiffened. Dumbfounded, she raised her gaze, revealing teary eyes.
She whispered softly.
Lu Zixi felt as though his heart would be crushed.
“I like you.”
Lu Zixi froze, and his mind grew blank.
