It's not that Gu Heng wasn't being cautious, but over the past few days, Bai Qiusheng had made her extremely tense . So, she could no longer tell when Bai Qiusheng was telling the truth or lying . He simply told her, "Everything will be settled in a few days . When that time comes, you will be the female lead . "
By this point, Gu Heng had long given up on the idea of being female lead . All she was worried about now, was whether Bai Qiusheng would be exposed .
However, Bai Qiusheng didn't share any information with her . He simply told her to wait and to make sure not to reveal their relations.h.i.+p . But, this cluelessness was the reason that she took Bei Chendong's bait as soon as he threw it out - because she had no idea what Bai Qiusheng had planned .
In the middle of the night, Gu Heng left her home without her a.s.sistant . All alone, she drove to her usual meeting place with Bai Qiusheng; an underground cafe .
However, after she arrived, she realized Bai Qiusheng was not there . She then received a phone call from Bei Chendong, "I was discovered by my manager, so I won't be able to come out tonight . Go home first and we'll meet another time . "
Gu Heng did not question the voice that she heard . So she quickly returned home without realizing that she was being tailed .
She was in too much of a panic to notice . . .
Those that were sent out by Mo Ting, had always been trustworthy . So it didn't take long before he received information from the cafe about a nearby hotel that Gu Heng and Bai Qiusheng often frequented . He even got hold of
a record of their stays and photos from locals of the two entering and exiting the hotel .
The hotel was in a hidden location and had strong confidentiality procedures . However, the staff couldn't resist bribes . After all, there was no way for their boss to find out who leaked the information .
While all this was going on, Lu Che also sent over an update . Although the culprit had escaped once again, he had already secured important evidence and believed he'd capture the man in the next two days .
With evidence in their hands, Tangning finally let out a sigh of relief . Meanwhile, Han Xiner looked admiringly at Tangning and praised, "I knew it, Ning Jie is the smartest . . . "
"Why don't you ever say that my acting is good?" Bei Chendong scoffed unhappily as he looked at Han Xiner .
"Now, we can only hope that Lu Che puts in enough effort . . . He can't let anything go wrong at this point!" Han Xiner placed her palms together and prayed sincerely to the skies .
Bei Chendong was helpless against her . So, he stood up and forcefully dragged her out, "Since my job is done here, I'll be making my leave . I have a lot of plants at home that need taking care of; I can't be gone for too long . "
This was Han Xiner's new method of curing Bei Chendong's laziness . His home now had 5 cats, 5 dogs, 5 parrots, 5 turtles and a garden full of plants .
Surprisingly, her method worked on him . Apart from filming, he now spent most of his time at home, improving his character .
"Don't worry, nothing bad will happen," Bei Chendong comforted . After all, Wei An was also preparing something .
Elder Mo was still waiting to serve Bai Qiusheng a lethal attack .
Actually, when they looked at the problem as a whole, it wasn't a high level of difficulty . Even though Bai Qiusheng had control over public opinion, they still had more evidence in their hands .
Perhaps due to fear that the longer they dragged out the issue, the more likely Tangning would find evidence, Bai Qiusheng decided to hold a press conference three days after he woke up .
Because the incident this time was extremely disgusting and involved both Tangning and Hai Rui's reputation, the media crowded into the press conference organized by Bai Qiusheng's agency . It was to be held in hall 5 of a random 5-star hotel . . .
Bai Qiusheng did not need to prepare much . He simply had to ride a wheelchair onto the stage and the scene was enough to spark headline ideas for the media .
Bai Qiusheng's manager held onto a microphone and started off by thanking the media . He then said in a serious tone, "Regarding Qiusheng's attack this time, all I can say is that we were extremely heartbroken when we found out the truth . "
"Of course, I can't jump to conclusions since the police are still investigating the matter . So I can only ask Qiusheng to describe the incident in detail," the manager handed his microphone to the wheelchair-bound Bai Qiusheng .
Bai Qiusheng was dressed in a hospital gown and the bandage on his head still had traces of blood . His head was initially down, but after receiving the microphone,
the microphone, he looked up and faced the countless cameras and flashes .
"I . . . am quite baffled by this incident . "
"In fact, I don't know what I've done wrong to be attacked in this way . "
"On the night of the incident, my manager escorted me home to get some rest . But, to our surprise, there were a bunch of people waiting in front of my house with axes, iron poles and other weapons . I started my career as a stunt double, so my skills aren't bad . But, one of the men decided to target my manager, so I had no choice but to block a hit for him . As a result, I lost consciousness . Fortunately, my manager got hold of the man's phone during the struggle . "
"The police have not come to a conclusion yet, so I don't know what the truth is . . . "
"But, I can confirm that Tangning's phone number was found on the culprit's phone . . . "
"Plus, police investigations have found that the man that hit me has previously come in contact with Tangning . "
"I really don't want to tie such a horrible incident to a woman, but . . . "
" . . . if I pity her, who would pity me?"
Bai Qiusheng paused for a moment, pretending to hold back tears .
His manager quickly tried to control his emotions as he added, "I hope the conclusion that the police come to in the end won't have anything to do with Tangning . Or else, I will use the law to battle with Hai Rui until the end . "
"As the Big Boss of entertainment, Hai Rui have a status that can't be easily shaken . If the incident this time was really caused by Tangning, I hope President Mo can let her step out and give a formal apology . "
"As an outsider, I don't want to get involved with your marital affairs . I am simply expressing my standpoint and have no intention to offend . If Tangning feels angered by what I have said, I would like to apologize in advance . I am still waiting for the results from the police . . . "
Bai Qiusheng firstly expressed his innocence, then he explained the situation . Lastly, he placed Hai Rui's reputation on the line .
He also claimed that Tangning's motive was because he had said a few things that he shouldn't have . This included claims that Tangning had a bad temper while Mo Ting spoiled and protected her .
The media had heard stories long ago, but now, they received confirmation .
Bai Qiusheng successfully lured the public's opinion onto his side by playing the image of a victim perfectly .
Otherwise, why would he have entered on a wheelchair and why did his bandages have blood?
He obviously wanted to get pity from them!
