Translator: CTCTRANS Editor: CTCTRANS
Jin Si’s words caused Xi Huanran to angrily glare at him.
After a while, the little girl seemed to have thought of something as she excitedly climbed down from the chair, saying, “Grandpa is home. I’ll call him over right now. He’ll believe me then!”
Jin Si silently stared.
The corners of his mouth twitched as he lifted Xi Huanran by the back of her collar again.
The little child struggled and kicked as she hung in the air. “Let me go!”
Jin Si placed her on the chair. His head was aching as he asked, “Are you done with lemon drops?”
Xi Huanran’s mind raced. She stopped struggling and looked at Jin Si with a puzzled expression. “Didn’t you say there are no more?”
“I’ll bring you to the shop to buy more.”
Jin Si was at a loss for words. Still, for some reason, he would rather bring Xi Huanran to buy another jar of lemon drops than give her the jar Qi Wu rejected.
Jin Si did not have time to think about it.
His reluctance was born from a subconscious instinct.
Xi Huanran’s eyes lit up when she heard that she could have an entire jar of lemon drops to herself.
“Yes.” Jin Si nodded. After a pause, he continued, “You can’t tell any of this nonsense to Grandpa and the others again. Otherwise, I’ll make sure you’ll never get another lemon drop in your life.”
Candy was always the biggest priority to children.
Therefore, Xi Huanran agreed to Jin Si’s condition without hesitation. She quickly shook her head and cutely said, “I have forgotten about everything!” Jin Si smirked.
Just then, Xi Huanran suddenly turned to look at the stream. “Huh? Her performance is done.”
Jin Si scoffed. There was a hint of resentment in his voice that even he did not notice. “It ended a long time ago.”
Xi Huanran planted her fists on her hips and proudly stated, “Still, I saw that the man gave her his vote!”
Jin Si’s smile froze. He narrowed his eyes and asked, “Which man?”
She stood on her tiptoes and pointed at someone on the screen. “This man.” Jin Si looked at who she was pointing to and saw Shen Xi.
He was no stranger to Shen Xi, but he did not understand why someone like Shen Xi would give Qi Wu preferential treatment.
Shen Xi might seem to be a gentleman, but he never cared about anyone or anything.
On the screen, Shen Xi had a gentlemanly smile on his face as he reminisced about Qi Wu’s performance with Song Qi.
Jin Si’s voice suddenly turned cold. “Janus-faced.”
Xi Huanran did not understand what he said and eagerly asked, “What does that mean?”
Jin Si lowered his head and looked at her confused face before picking her up and pointing to Shen Xi on the screen. “It means him.”
Xi Huanran nodded in a somewhat confused yet understanding manner. She pointed at Shen Xi, just like Jin Si was doing, and said, “I see. This man is Janus-faced.”
He had no idea how childish his actions were.
Xi Huanran, who was rarely praised by her uncle instead of insulted, was overjoyed when she heard that.
“Let’s go buy you some lemon drops.”
Qi Wu’s performance of “City of Loneliness” not only sparked a lot of discussion online but also made Shen Xi, one of the mentors, vote for her.
Shen Xi’s vote was the first vote to be cast among the three mentors. This made many contestants look at Qi Wu with envy.
Although the contestants couldn’t see the number of votes before the results were announced, they could already guess that Qi Wu was definitely within the top ten.
That was indeed the case.
After Qi Wu’s performance ended, she was trending again.
‘Qi Wu’s Interpretation of “City of Loneliness” and Xi Yu!’
‘”City of Loneliness” is an old movie. I can never forget Xi Yu. I didn’t expect Qi
Wu to be able to come up with another interpretation.’
‘Angel’s Xi Yu is so noble and arrogant that I can just tell the demon’s pride had not been cast aside despite her humiliating defeat.’
‘There’s no way anyone with Qi Wu’s face can act out a pathetic character.’
‘She’s so beautiful! Step on me, Angel!’
Chang Xun could no longer remember how many times Qi Wu had been trending.
He even felt a strange sense of relief. 𝒻𝑟ℯℯ𝓌ℯ𝒷𝑛𝘰𝘷ℯ𝘭.𝘤𝘰𝘮
Qi Wu was so hardworking that he would not have to splurge on publicity and marketing in the future. fre ewebno vel.com
Chang Xun nonchalantly clicked on the voting page and was so scared by what he saw that he immediately cursed out loud.
How was Qi Wu in second place?
She was only second to Jiang Yiran, who was ranked first!
Jiang Yiran had already debuted for more than a year and had five million fans on social media. He had an agency that had a proper protocol for everything while his fans were all in organized groups.
Long before voting started, the big names among Jiang Yiran’s fans had already reminded everyone to vote.
Now, Qi Wu, who only had a few hundred thousand followers, was second only to him in terms of votes. This meant that Qi Wu would very likely surpass Jiang
Yiran in the near future.
Chang Xun, who only wanted Qi Wu to have fun, was at a loss for words.
She was being a little too talented.
Now, she was going to become top-tier famous overnight!
At the end of the competition, the production team announced the voting results.
When the crowd saw that Qi Wu was in second place, second only to Jiang Yiran, it instantly caused a commotion.
People looked at the young woman who stood out even among the crowd. Somehow, it was not that surprising.
Some people even thought that if Jiang Yiran had not made his debut long ago and started with an advantage, Qi Wu would be in first place.
Jiang Yiran could not help but feel a little surprised when he saw that.
Qi Wu was the true rookie among the two of them.
It was only a matter of time before her fame would skyrocket, bringing her to the top of the pyramid.
He could not help but mutter, “She’s not bad for an evil woman. It’ll only be a few more episodes before she overtakes me.
Tan Song, who was standing next to him since they were in the same category, lowered his eyes and said without thinking, “It is inevitable.”
Tan Song was not satisfied with this result. In his heart, Qi Wu was undoubtedly number one.
Jiang Yiran was speechless.
While he knew that this was something a fanatic of Qi Wu would say, it was still very heart-wrenching.
He felt that he could publish a book in the future called “My Idol is My Most Hated Enemy’s Fan” that would include a 100,000-word essay complaining about this issue.
To his surprise, that was not all. Ke Lu was there to shove the knife deeper into him.
She coldly glanced at him and said, “Soon, she’ll surpass you.”
Xiang Yiran was confused.
This was the first time she had ever spoken to him, and it was for Qi Wu. At that moment, he wished for an escape from this world of fanatics..
