“There is really no way for us to convict Li Lanshan at all. Even though Didi would always be normal when she entered the room, but stumbling when she came out, this could not be regarded as direct evidence to prove anything at all.”
The group of people had trouble looking for evidence from the surveillance camera.
“Expand the scope of our search and ask our people to look at all the surveillance camera near the hotel just to take a closer look at things. I don’t think that Li Lanshan is only abusing Didi in the room.”
The captain of the hotel security team immediately ordered his subordinates.
“This is really a bad situation. Although crew bullying is very common, this is the first time that I have ever encountered such a bad situation. It is no wonder why I always felt that the young girl seemed to look a little sick, as though she did not have enough rest whenever I saw her. I did not expect her to be a punching bag for Li Lanshan.”
The captain also had his own children so, who could possibly stand seeing his own child getting bullied like this?
“If I were Jiang Yuning, I would not be able to tolerate it either.”
All of the discussion on the internet right now was all about Jiang Yuning beating people up.
When Lu Jingzhi heard the news in the middle of the night, he hurriedly rushed to the hotel from Luo City to comfort her. Why did Jiang Yuning hit someone?
Since Lu Jingzhi had an ‘idle’ job now, his actions and movements were relatively freer compared to before. Therefore, it was not a big issue for him to ‘skip’ work tomorrow. When he found out that his little descendant hit someone, he immediately asked Secretary Ho to drive him to the crew.
No, Secretary Ho was no longer working as his secretary.
He was now called his special assistant.
“Second young master Lu, the young mistress must have her own reason for hitting someone.”
Lu Jingzhi glanced at Special Assistant Ho from the rearview mirror, filled with anxiety in his eyes. Special Assistant Ho stopped talking any more nonsense as he continued driving towards the location of the crew.
After arriving at the hotel, Lu Jingzhi realized that his little descendant was busy looking for evidence on the surveillance cameras at the moment. She did not even bother to give him any of her attention at all.
“Second brother, why did you come all the way here? I am busy right now.”
Jiang Yuning was in charge of monitoring the surveillance camera at the entrance of the hotel.
“Did you hit her just to teach her a lesson?” Lu Jingzhi who was sitting next to her, asked her directly as he watched her slowly flip through the records on the surveillance camera.
“Don’t you think that she deserve to be taught a lesson?” Jiang Yuning’s gaze was focused on the screen. “Furthermore, the Lu family is currently in chaos right now. Am I relying on the Lu family now that I have caused trouble for myself? Those gossip accounts are really amazing at creating rumors about me.”
Lu Jingzhi did not want to continue listening to her babble about all sorts of nonsense. He reached out his hands to grab hold of her busy hands as he said, “It’s okay for you to continue pretending in front of everyone else but you do not need to pretend in front of me. Why did you hit her? How can you act so impulsively?”
When Lu Jingzhi saw how persistent Jiang Yuning was, he could only turned around to see if there was any way that he could help her at all.
“I can tolerate it if that woman spread rumors about the Lu family. However, I cannot tolerate it when she insults you! I have already heard her insulting you a couple of times and I have been waiting to deal with her because of it,” Jiang Yuning snorted. “I still feel like giving her another two slaps across her face whenever I think about it!”
Lu Jingzhi rubbed her palms gently before he asked, “So, you did it just because of this?”
“Of course, I am also doing it for Didi,” Jiang Yuning replied as she tried to free her hand. “Second brother, I want to continue checking the surveillance camera.”
“Sit on my lap and we will check it together.”
Everyone in the hotel put in a lot of effort and energy as they continued looking for evidence of Didi’s abuse. If they did not find any evidence inside the hotel, they looked outside the hotel. They even looked around the garden, and also the woods nearby. At this time, even the production team and crew were also helping them to look for evidence of the abuse. Finally, someone discovered two instances where Didi was being abused by Li Lanshan. One was blurred and the other incident was much clearer on the surveillance camera.
But, it was already enough.
At this time, it was already close to midnight.
Everyone at the hotel had been busy the whole entire day.
After getting her hands on the video clips, Jiang Yuning handed it over to the police station immediately. After that, Jiang Yuning went to the hospital to visit Didi under the escort of Special Assistant Ho.
Didi was in a good mood but she looked very pale. The doctor said that this was because of all her unhealed wounds and injuries and because she had been excessively exhausted. Jiang Yuning was filled with regrets as she thought about the fear and horror that Didi must have felt every day. She really regret that she did not intervene in the matter earlier.
This was because she really would not have imagined that Didi would be so badly injured.
“Sister Yuning…” Didi greeted Jiang Yuning weakly as soon as she saw Jiang Yuning when she opened her eyes. After that, she asked, “I cannot continue acting in the crew anymore, right?”
“No one is going to replace you. So, you better get well as soon as possible. We still have to retake a few scenes to make up all the shots. Make sure that you do not delay our schedule, okay?” Jiang Yuning replied as she lifted the quilt to cover it over Didi.
“But everyone on the internet is talking about you right now. Moreover, all the netizens do not know that truth at all. They do not know that the only reason why you hit someone else was because of me.”
“Anyway, the gossip account are not interested in spreading rumors about me. All that they are interested in, is to continue spreading more rumors about the Lu family. Even if I am breathing silently without doing anything at all, they would also find fault with me,” Jiang Yuning pacified Didi so that she would not feel so burdened.
“The police officers came to take my statement during the day and I told them nothing but the truth. However, I do not have any evidence at all, Sister Yuning.”
“You don’t need to worry about any evidence. I will handle that for you. All that you have to worry about is to get well as soon as possible. Don’t worry about anything else. If you encounter this kind of grievances in future again, please do not endure it silently on your own. No matter whether the other party is the first female lead or the third female lead, no one has the right to hurt and humiliated someone else.”
Jiang Yuning accompanied Didi in the hospital for a very long time until Didi eventually fell asleep.
After thinking about it, Jiang Yuning felt that she should notify Didi’s parents about this matter.
At this time, Jiang Yuning did not know that the nurse outside the door had secretly took pictures of Jiang Yuning watching over Didi when she heard that Jiang Yuning was here to visit.
Everyone on the internet continued spreading rumors and gossips ever since news broke out that Jiang Yuning slapped Li Lanshan in the morning. Everyone was really curious. They could not understand why Jiang Yuning would actually raise her hand to hit someone.
Li Lanshan contacted the police officers and she demanded that Jiang Yuning came to give her a personal apology.
However, Jiang Yuning did not respond at all.
Li Lanshan was very angry and annoyed. Therefore, she went online and continued complaining about the situation. “Since she has already admitted that she hit someone, then why is it so difficult for her to come out and apologize to me? Jiang Yuning, I can forgive you, as long as you apologize to me. However, the premise is that you will have to come and kowtow before me, and apologize to me personally. @JiangJianglovestheScenery.”
Li Lanshan felt that it was only reasonable for her to demand that of Jiang Yuning.
At this time, the few fans that Li Lanshan had continued howling on the internet. Should their idol be bullied just because she was the second female lead?
Did their idol have to tolerate and endure when someone else slapped them, just because she was not the first female lead?
The fans continued supporting their own goddess and they firmly believed that Jiang Yuning, who had confessed to hitting someone, did not feel any remorse at all. Instead, they felt that she was simply admitting her mistake, just to entertain the public and the netizens.
[It is impossible for Jiang Yuning to come out and apologize now, right? If Jiang Yuning really wanted to apologize, why did she have to wait so long? She would have already apologized a long time ago.]
[Why did Jiang Yuning hit someone? I am really curious…]
[Is this matter going to just be left hanging in the air? Jiang Yuning, it is better for you to explain yourself in this situation! You should not give anyone the chance to have any black materials of you just because you hit someone. Come out and explain yourself!]
