Chapter 30 – Is This Person Really a Reporter?
Yang Lingsi’s eyes were shining with malice.
The scandal surrounding her had broken out only that afternoon, and she could guess Qiao Lian had recorded her without even thinking twice. At that point, a deep hatred for Qiao Lian had seeped into her bones. To think that an opportunity for revenge would arrive so soon!
If she didn’t take advantage of this opportunity, she would not be able to live with herself.
After Yang Lingsi’s exclamation, the security officer who was bringing Su Meimei to the exit stopped dead in his tracks.
Su Meimei’s eyes shone once she saw Qiao Lian, “It’s her, she’s a reporter from our news agency! Security, chase her out as well!
At this moment, Qiao Lian felt as though her head was about to explode!
She was so unlucky!
She could not leave without obtaining her scoop.
As everybody stared at her, Qiao Lian suddenly opened her mouth and sighed, “Su Meimei, even though we have had our disagreements, you should not slander me like this, right?”
Su Meimei immediately opened her mouth in denial, “I’m not slandering you!”
Qiao Lian spread her hands widely and added, “Then provide the evidence that proves that I am a reporter!”
Su Meimei was stunned, “You are my colleague! What other proof do you need?”
Qiao Lian shook her head, saying, “If I am indeed your colleague, isn’t this entire incident rather strange? Why would you expose me after you have been caught?”
The people surrounding her all thought that her rebuttal made perfect sense.
Even though this party had strictly controlled the invitations that were sent, many invited people had brought a plus one. Hence, other than a few well-known stars, there were also a few rich second-generation heirs.
Qiao Lian had a great temperament, and anybody could see that she had enjoyed a good upbringing. As such, nobody was willing to offend her without sufficient evidence.
Su Meimei was so choked up that she was speechless with rage. On the contrary, it was Yang Lingsi who coldly laughed and said, “Since you claim that you are not a reporter, can you take out your invitation letter?”
Su Meimei jolted at her words and immediately said, “That’s right, I just saw her crawl out from underneath the table. She definitely snuck in here. Our news agency was not able to obtain an invitation letter!”
After she finished speaking, she glared at Qiao Lian fiercely.
Since her cover had been blown today and she had not managed to uncover a scoop, she had to prevent Qiao Lian from uncovering one as well.
She was certain that Qiao Lian had no invitation letter after all.
Qiao Lian heard her words, sighed, and said, “How could I have entered without an invitation?”
She lowered her head and rummaged through her bag. Then, she pulled out the invitation letter and waved it in front of the gathered crowd, “Do you see this?”
Her true name was written on the invitation letter. Hence, even if others saw it, her secret identity as Forget Chuan would not be exposed.
Su Meimei’s eyes widened in shock, and she looked at Qiao Lian incredulously, “Th-That’s impossible! How could you have obtained an invitation?”
Yang Lingsi also frowned, saying, “Even if you have an invitation letter, you are still a reporter. I have seen you before when you visited the filming site of
. You were also the one who caused the scandals surrounding me!”
Her words caused quite a stir among those present.
Qiao Lian coldly humphed and said, “Don’t spout nonsense. If you have evidence, show it right now!”
“Evidence?” Yang Lingsi bit her lip and looked at Shen Liangchuan sharply, “When you went to the filming location, Best Actor Shen was also there! Best Actor Shen also knows you! Everybody gathered here may not believe me, but surely they will believe Best Actor Shen’s words, right?”
As she finished speaking, the crowd looked at Shen Liangchuan simultaneously.
Director Jia was slightly taken aback and asked questioningly, “Best Actor Shen, is this person really a visiting reporter?”
Qiao Lian’s heart sank in an instant!
She looked over as her eyes connected with those dark eyes of his.
Earlier, he had already used his gaze to warn her to leave. Now, how would he respond to this situation?
