Lady Gu Is Too Weak To Fend For Herself - Chapter 620
Chapter 620: Leaving The Entertainment Industry
The sky outside was still gloomy, and the surroundings were silent. Only the pattering of rain could be heard. Qiao Xi leaned against the pool and sighed comfortably.
She did not know when she fell asleep, but when she opened her eyes, she was already on the small couch in the room inside Night Tide Court.
Qiao Xi propped herself up and looked around. Where was Gu Zheng?
Although she didn’t know how long she had been sleeping, it was already a little dark outside. The lights around Night Tide Courtyard were already lit up. Qiao Xi put on a coat and held an umbrella as she followed the path to find Gu Zheng.
At this moment, she heard a commotion. “Let us in! I’m Qiao Xi’s elder sister. I have something important to discuss with her!”
When Qiao Xi heard this voice, she abruptly looked up. Why was Xu Anran here?
She looked at the door and sized up Xu Anran. She realized that she was recording something on her phone.
Just as she was about to step forward, someone suddenly held her hand. Gu Zheng had unknowingly appeared beside her. He said gently, “Go back to your room. Leave this to me.”
Qiao Xi shook her head. “How can I do that? They’ll probably be disappointed if I don’t make an appearance.”
She stood at the same spot and watched for a while. Then, she realized that Xu Anran was holding her phone and doing a live broadcast. Xia Yunlou and Xu Anran had come here to apologize on a live broadcast because they wanted to use the fans’ power to force her to forgive them. If she rejected them, those fans would definitely scold her for not knowing what was good for her.
At the door, Xia Yunlou was still crying and begging humbly, “I’m Xi Xi’s biological mother. Please let me in. I just want to see her, boo-hoo…”
The maid stopped her. “Our president and young madam are resting. We don’t dare to go in and disturb them. If you’re really Young Madam’s mother, why don’t you call them directly? What’s the use of arguing here?”
A trace of resentment flashed past Xu Anran’s eyes.
Xia Yunlou was crying her eyes out. “She’s not answering my calls…”
Seeing how pitiful she was, the maid couldn’t bear to reject her. Hence, she nodded. “Alright, then. I’ll ask Young Madam. If you’re really her mother, she’ll definitely invite you in.”
Xia Yunlou smiled smugly. They were currently doing a live broadcast. Qiao Xi would be thought of as unfilial if she didn’t appear.
No matter how outstanding a person was, as long as they were accused of being unfilial, their reputation would be ruined. Coupled with the power of public opinion, Qiao Xi would be the one begging them to let the matter rest.
Ten minutes ago.
The car stopped at the entrance of the hot springs villa. Xia Yunlou looked at the gloomy weather and frowned. “The weather is terrible. Why don’t we come back another day?”
Xu Anran smiled and said, “Mom, it’s good that the weather is bad. Only then can we show our sincerity.”
Xia Yunlou also felt that what she said made sense. The fact that they still came to Nine Heavens Villa to look for Qiao Xi on a rainy day showed how difficult it was for them. If Qiao Xi still refused to see them, Xu Anran’s fans would definitely scold her for being unfilial.
As soon as she finished speaking, Xu Anran threw the umbrella away. Her thin dress was instantly drenched by the rain. She raised her hand and messed up her hair before starting a live broadcast.
Xu Anran had a lot of fans. As soon as she started the live broadcast, many fans rushed in, and the number of fans increased.
[Wow! Anran is doing a live broadcast!]
[Why didn’t the studio inform us? We almost missed our goddess’ live broadcast!]
[Where is she? Anran seems to be in the rain. Is she filming?]
Xu Anran’s eyes were slightly red as tears mixed with the rainwater. Her voice trembled slightly. “Everyone, I’m sorry. I want to announce something important. I’ve decided… to leave the entertainment circle.”
As soon as she finished speaking, the entire broadcast room was in an uproar.
Although Xu Anran no longer acted, she could still be considered a popular female celebrity. For her to suddenly announce her withdrawal from the entertainment circle was a big piece of news.
It quickly attracted some entertainment reporters, and the number of viewers reached the peak.
Fans asked: [Goddess Anran, why do you want to quit the entertainment industry?]
[Why are you crying? Did someone bully you?]
Xu Anran sobbed, “No… No one bullied me. Actually, this matter started 20 years ago. At that time, my mother was giving birth in the hospital but the nurse accidentally carried the wrong child over, causing the Xu family’s biological daughter to be stranded outside. So… I’m not the real daughter of the Xu family!”
