Translator: Henyee Translations Editor: Henyee Translations
Tang Ruge shook her head crazily, and her exquisite hair got all messy. She choked and could not retort.
How could Qiao Xi be so kind? She did not expose her in the beginning not because she wanted to save her some dignity but because she wanted to see her struggle in despair with her own eyes. In the end, she wanted her to be hated by everyone.
Today was supposed to be the most important moment in her life. She was going to be the most talented socialite in high society and become a goddess in everyone’s hearts. However, everything was ruined by Qiao Xi.
Many of the people attending the award ceremony were noblewomen and young ladies from high society. Madam Tang invited them because she wanted to show off how outstanding her daughter was in front of them and make those who once looked down on her envious.
At this moment, those noblewomen and young ladies looked at Madam Tang with ridicule and laughed out loud. “Miss Tang sure is the top socialite in the capital. How could she pretend to be Fu Sheng? Could it be that her previous achievements were all bought with money as well?”
“I’m dying of laughter! So the title of the top socialite in the capital can be bought with money! Then I have to buy one for my daughter! Miss Tang was known as a talented woman since she was young. I’m afraid this was just a rumor spread by the Tang family!”
Tang Ruge no longer cared about her image. Tears and snot flowed down her face as she pounced crazily at Qiao Xi and questioned loudly, “Qiao Xi! Why did you expose me in public?!”
Qiao Xi nimbly dodged Tang Ruge’s attack and smiled sarcastically. “If you didn’t do anything wrong, why would you be afraid of being exposed?”
Tang Ruge’s mind was a mess, and her body became heavy. She staggered and bumped into the corner of the table. She gritted her teeth in pain and shouted, “You framed me! Quickly chase this crazy woman, Qiao Xi, out! Don’t let her affect the progress of the award ceremony.”
The daughter of a noble family who had always been gentle had a ferocious expression now. She shouted without caring about her image, “I took Fu Sheng’s song to participate in the competition for a reason. You don’t understand at all!”
“Oh? Miss Tang, do you perhaps have your own considerations for doing so?” Qiao Xi asked with a smile.
Tang Ruge collapsed on the chair in a sorry state. She did not have the image of a socialite from the capital at all. Faced with Qiao Xi’s question, she actually did not know how to answer. However, everyone was staring fixedly at her. If she did not give a perfect explanation, she would be completely doomed.
Seeing that Tang Ruge did not respond for a long time, Qiao Xi looked at Madam Tang, who was not far away. At this moment, Madam Tang’s eyes were bloodshot as she stared fixedly at Qiao Xi with a burning gaze. Her nails were digging into her palms.
Ruge was the top socialite in the capital and the future head of the Tang family. She was also her hope. She would never allow Ruge’s future to be ruined. No matter what, she had to protect Ruge’s reputation.
Madam Tang racked her brains to think. Suddenly, she had an idea and said excitedly, “Ruge has her considerations. She didn’t mean to pretend to be Fu Sheng.”
Everyone in the city knew that Fu Sheng had won the award. Now that the award ceremony was already being held, Fu Sheng herself had not appeared. Moreover, her account was suspended a few years ago. Perhaps the real Fu Sheng was already dead.
If Fu Sheng was really dead, no one would expose Ruge. So what if Ruge spent money to change the ownership of the account? She had her reasons!
At the thought of this, Madam Tang gradually became confident. “Actually… Ruge and Fu Sheng are good friends! Fu Sheng was seriously ill and handed all her songs to Ruge before she died. Her last wish was for Ruge to publish her songs and win the highest award in the music industry. Tang Ruge had no choice but to participate in Planet Music Festival under her name, so Ruge asked a hacker to change Fu Sheng’s account information. She did this to fulfill Fu Sheng’s last wish. What’s wrong with that?”
Everyone stopped cursing. If that was the case, Tang Ruge did have her reasons, but they felt that something was wrong.
Tang Ruge, who was slumped on the chair, heard these words. Her eyes suddenly lit up with hope again. She hurriedly stood up and wiped her tears. She pretended to be indifferent and explained, “That’s right. Fu Sheng was indeed my friend. Unfortunately, she died a few years ago due to an illness. Her only wish was for me to pass down all her songs in her place so that everyone could hear her voice.”
Everyone looked at each other, their eyes filled with doubt. They remained silent.
“Haha.” Qiao Xi chuckled and broke the deathly silence.
