“My dear Miss Wanqiu, why did you go to Lin Fan’s restaurant for a meal with Xiaoyu?”

“Now, even things that happened in high school have been exposed. If people find out that you and Lin Fan were alone in a room…” Yang Qing held Xia Wanqiu’s hand and said earnestly.

As Xia Wanqiu’s manager, if something like this happened, Yang Qing would definitely be criticized by the company’s boss.

Luckily, the matter was still manageable. If the fans knew that Lin Fan and Xia Wanqiu were in the same room late at night, Yang Qing’s career would come to an end.

“Meow, meow, I’m fine.” Xia Wanqiu smiled sweetly and made a cute gesture and expression.

“Wanqiu, this is a big matter,” Yang Qing said.

Xia Wanqiu sat there, revealing her graceful curves. She looked at Yang Qing and asked, “Did CEO Li ask you to say something?”

CEO Li was the real boss of Yuehua Entertainment.

After this incident, the boss of the company would not talk to Xia Wanqiu. He would look for her manager first.

Although Xia Wanqiu was usually pretty and would occasionally make cute expressions, she was very smart.

She had to face what she had to face.

With such a thing happening, the company would naturally have objections, but the boss could not personally criticize Xia Wanqiu.

There were some things that couldn’t be said openly. Yang Qing came to talk to her this time, and she naturally represented CEO Li.

“CEO Li said that your career is still on the rise and the company will support you with all their might. I hope that you can post on Weibo today to eliminate the impact,” Yang Qing said.

After all, there were already rumors on the Internet that Lin Fan and Xia Wanqiu were very close. Some even started to spread rumors that they were living together.

The more fans there were, the more haters there would be. Xia Wanqiu was very beautiful, but there were also many teams behind the anti-fans who wanted to mess with her.

“Nothing else?” Xia Wanqiu asked again. She looked at Yang Qing, who looked like she wanted to say something but hesitated.

Yang Qing sighed and said, “Wanqiu, it’s been close to a year since you last acted. You haven’t been able to find a script that you’re satisfied with. After all, this is the era where popularity is king. If you don’t act, maybe…”

Xia Wanqiu raised her beautiful eyes and looked at Yang Qing seriously. She said, “Does CEO Li want me to film a few more shows and variety shows so that the company can earn more money?”

“No, no.” Yang Qing shook her head.

“Wanqiu, CEO Li is also thinking for you. You can consider taking on a relationship scene. After all, the romance films of the male and female leads are more popular in the market, like ‘The Journey of Flower’.”

“CEO Li believes that if you are willing to try and make new changes, your development will be many times better than now,” Yang Qing said.

Xia Wanqiu revealed a beautiful smile.

Was this CEO Li’s true intention?

He was using the controversy this time to give her a warning.

The photos of her and Lin Fan in high school were posted online. That was her business.

For Lin Fan, it was her principle that she didn’t want to shoot kissing scenes.

If the boss of the company was not willing to talk to her openly, why did he have to talk to Yang Qing?

“Sister Yang, I understand what CEO Li said, but you are my manager, not CEO Li’s manager,” Xia Wanqiu held Yang Qing’s hand and said seriously.

“Wanqiu, I’m sorry. I understand.” Yang Qing nodded immediately.

She was Xia Wanqiu’s subordinate, not CEO Li’s.

If Xia Wanqiu was unwilling to film a kissing scene, perhaps the company would not say anything to her.

However, a manager was directly responsible for an artist. If Xia Wanqiu was not satisfied, she could change her manager anytime.

Even if Xia Wanqiu left the company, she could have a better development. Yang Qing could listen to her boss, but she was ultimately still Xia Wanqiu’s subordinate.

“Meow, meow ~ I knew Sister Yang would be the best. Sister Yang, if you have time, help me choose a variety show. I haven’t worked for so long, it’s good to work occasionally,” Xia Wanqiu said as she held Yang Qing’s arm.

“What do you think of Keep Running?” Yang Qing’s eyes lit up.

“Alright, you can settle the rest.” Xia Wanqiu smiled sweetly.

Xia Wanqiu was usually very cute.

However, this did not mean that she would give in to everything easily.

After Yang Qing left, she broke out in cold sweat.

Xia Wanqiu was able to reach her current position because of her own abilities.

In just a few sentences, Xia Wanqiu had already expressed her attitude firmly.

She would never take on a relationship scene, much less a kissing scene. Even if this was the attitude of the company’s boss, it was still the same.

If Yang Qing dared to continue asking, Xia Wanqiu would replace her manager.

Yang Qing understood the meaning behind Xia Wanqiu’s words and immediately expressed her loyalty. Xia Wanqiu also gave Yang Qing a candy. She was willing to participate in some variety shows, and “Keep Running” had a better reputation.

Yang Qing sighed helplessly.

She just wanted to know.

Just what sort of a character was Lin Fan?

He was actually able to make Xia Wanqiu not only offend the company’s boss but also stick to her principle of not filming a kissing scene.

Yang Qing was getting more and more curious about Lin Fan.

The only person who could make Xia Wanqiu fall for him was probably Lin Fan.

“What do you mean you don’t like Lin Fan? How can you not like Lin Fan when you’re already like this?”

“If I have the chance, I would like to meet this Lin Fan and see how Lin Fan took advantage of my little cabbage.” Yang Qing thought to herself and started to prepare work for Xia Wanqiu.

At 10 pm, Lin Fan quietly went to his restaurant.

He had no choice. He was too popular now.

And he was the love rival in the hearts of countless fans.

After all, Xia Wanqiu’s photo with him was too lethal.

The main reason for coming to the restaurant was that Qiuqiu was still in the restaurant and he wanted to bring it home.

Lin Fan wanted to feed this cat. Otherwise, it would starve to death.

“Meow ~” When the kitten saw Lin Fan, it looked aggrieved. It hadn’t eaten for a day.

“Alright, it’s fine now.” Lin Fan hugged the kitten and patted its head, preparing to leave.

Just as he was about to leave, Lin Fan saw a familiar cat ear hat appear beside him.

It was Xia Wanqiu!

“Why are you here?” Lin Fan looked at Xia Wanqiu and pulled her over.

“I’m here to see Qiuqiu. What about you?” Xia Wanqiu looked at the kitten in Lin Fan’s arms and smiled sweetly.

“I’m waiting for you,” said Lin Fan.

“Really?” Xia Wanqiu looked at Lin Fan curiously, her pretty face blushing.

Initially, Lin Fan was a little angry that he couldn’t even open his restaurant after getting on the hot search list. But after seeing Xia Wanqiu, Lin Fan couldn’t be angry anymore.

Xia Wanqiu came to look for him secretly at night. It was so dangerous. Lin Fan thought about it and felt that he should be angry.

His and Xia Wanqiu’s popularity had already reached five million. If her fans were to see them together at this juncture… the consequences would be unimaginable. He would have to be responsible for Xia Wanqiu for the rest of his life.

The surroundings were dark and Xia Wanqiu was closer to Lin Fan. Lin Fan could even feel her breathing and body temperature.

That detestable Xia Wanqiu. She wore so little and was so beautiful. She was so close to him. He could not take it.

“In the future, you’re not allowed to come alone at night, understand?” Lin Fan pretended to be angry as he looked at Xia Wanqiu. If something happened to Xia Wanqiu, Lin Fan would not be at ease.

“I know, I know. I’ll listen to you.” Xia Wanqiu placed her hands in front of her and looked very aggrieved. Didn’t she sneak here to see him?

“We have to go first. It’s not safe here. If someone finds out…” Lin Fan said.

“So what if we’re discovered?” Xia Wanqiu said as she looked at Lin Fan’s reaction.

“No, you don’t care but I care,” Lin Fan said seriously. He didn’t want to affect Xia Wanqiu’s career right now. Taking the initiative to announce a relationship herself was different from being secretly photographed by others.

“Yes.” Xia Wanqiu nodded her head lightly. Her voice was like a mosquito’s whisper. Her lips curled up slightly and her heart thumped. So, he cared.

“It’s getting late. I’ll send you home,” said Lin Fan. He couldn’t just leave Xia Wanqiu here and let her go home alone.

“No. Let’s go to your house. There might be fans waiting there.”

“Although your house is smaller, I don’t mind. Besides, I’ve never been to your house before,” Xia Wanqiu said softly.

“I live in a big villa. The rooms are very big,” said Lin Fan with a smile.

“Only a pig would believe you.” Xia Wanqiu stuck out her tongue.

“Willing to bet on it?” Lin Fan asked again.

“Bet on what?” Xia Wanqiu looked at Lin Fan.

“If you lose, give me a kiss. If I lose, I’ll cook you a feast every day,” Lin Fan said with a smile.

“Stupid Lin Fan, who wants to kiss you? But I’m not going to lose,” Xia Wanqiu said confidently with a red face.

“Do you want to eat braised fish?” Lin Fan looked at the girl in front of him and smiled. No matter how much he bet, he wouldn’t lose. Shouldn’t he cook a feast for his wife every day?

“…” Xia Wanqiu.

At that moment, the voices of passersby could be heard. They seemed to be Xia Wanqiu’s fans and some reporters. They seemed to want to interview Lin Fan when he opened his shop tomorrow.

“Shh… there’s someone,” Lin whispered.

“Mmm…” Xia Wanqiu nodded her head obediently. She looked at Lin Fan with her beautiful eyes and asked him what to do.

“Meow ~” The kitten meowed in Lin Fan’s arms.

Initially, he and Xia Wanqiu were still hiding in a more secluded area. However, once the kitten cried out, it would immediately attract attention.

Lin Fan and Xia Wanqiu exchanged glances.

That was it.

They were going to be discovered.

They were going to be caught red-handed by the media.

Making a prompt decision, Lin Fan grabbed Xia Wanqiu’s hand and sprinted towards the small road.

“Run!”
