Lady Gu Is Too Weak To Fend For Herself - Chapter 871
Chapter 871: You’re Fired
“Actually, you don’t know anything about music at all. You just want to use Fu Sheng’s identity to pursue fame and fortune. You even claim to be the top socialite in the capital. If socialites have no bottom line like you, that’s really too sad!”
Wen Lai reprimanded mercilessly. Tang Ruge’s face alternated between red and white. She wished she could faint immediately to avoid losing her reputation in front of everyone.
“Madam Wen Lai! How can you say that?!” Madam Tang said unhappily, “Although my daughter isn’t the real Fu Sheng, she has good intentions. She did all this for Fu Sheng’s sake!”
“Heh! For Fu Sheng’s own good? She occupied Fu Sheng’s identity and spread rumors to frame her so that she’d be cursed by everyone, but you’re saying your daughter did all that for Fu Sheng’s own good?”
Wen Lai’s gaze suddenly turned sharp. “Xu Da, as a guest presenter of Planet Music Festival, you were actually bewitched by an impostor and even publicized the matter of the zither. Is this what you should do as a senior in the industry?”
Xu Da was embarrassed. How could he have thought that the eldest daughter of the Tang family was an impostor?
When Tang Ruge heard Madam Wen Lai’s words, she had a bad feeling. Zither? Rumor? Every word seemed to explain one thing.
“I’m afraid everyone here still doesn’t know who the real Fu Sheng is,” Wen Lai suddenly said, her eyes filled with a mocking smile. “It’s only right for Fu Sheng to bid for the ancient zither. The impostor, Tang Ruge, pretended to be aggrieved and shed a few tears in public, yet countless people stood up for her. Did you accept the Tang family’s money or were you bewitched by Tang Ruge? How could you let the real winner of the gold award suffer such grievances?”
Xu Da’s legs went weak as they trembled. “I… I didn’t.”
“Even if you didn’t accept the Tang family’s money, you’re so stupid and can’t read people. You’re not worthy to be a guest presenter for Planet Music Festival. You’re fired!”
Xu Da’s face was pale. He never expected to be fired just because he spoke up for Tang Ruge. The consequences of being fired by Madam Wen Lai were very serious. From now on, he would not be able to step into the music industry again.
Tang Ruge lowered her head and pondered over Wen Lai’s words. She could not help but tremble as fear surged in her heart.
“Miss Tang, do you know who the real Fu Sheng is now?” Wen Lai looked at Tang Ruge with eyes full of ridicule. After a moment, she chuckled and turned to look at Qiao Xi. “You’re already standing in front of her, yet you can still casually spout nonsense about Fu Sheng being dead. I’ve learned something today. This capital’s top socialite is an utter disgrace!”
These words were like a thunderclap that exploded in the surroundings. The gazes of everyone descended onto Qiao Xi, yet Qiao Xi didn’t feel uncomfortable in the slightest. Instead, she raised her eyes indifferently and confidently while releasing her aura.
The entire venue was in an uproar.
“Qiao Xi is actually Fu Sheng? Tang Ruge was so arrogant in front of the main character just now!”
“Tang Ruge pretended to know Fu Sheng and took over her identity. Who knew that the real Fu Sheng was standing in front of her? How laughable!”
Everyone’s mocking words entered Tang Ruge’s ears. Her mind buzzed, and the blood in her body seemed to have frozen. In the end, she collapsed onto the chair.
Qiao Xi was Fu Sheng? Impossible!
The netizens in the live-stream gradually went crazy: [I feel embarrassed for Tang Ruge. She pretended to be Fu Sheng and even pretended in front of the real Fu Sheng.]
[No wonder Qiao Xi could confirm that Tang Ruge was an impostor. Qiao Xi was giving Tang Ruge a chance, but she just refused to admit her mistake and kept lying.]
[Wow! Fu Sheng is too awesome! She’s talented and so beautiful. She’s a thousand times more outstanding than Tang Ruge. How does that woman have the cheek to slander Fu Sheng?!]
The live-stream was filled with curses. Everyone present could not suppress the anger in their hearts and clamored to chase the Tang family out.
Ever since Tang Dawei became the head of the family, Madam Tang could straighten her back no matter where she went. This was the first time she was so embarrassed after so many years. She wished she could find a hole to hide in.
Wen Lai looked at Tang Ruge in disgust. “Miss Tang, you’re really shameless. Are you still unwilling to leave at a time like this?”
“I… I…” Tang Ruge’s body trembled violently as tears trickled down her face. She stammered, “I always thought that Fu Sheng had already passed away. I just couldn’t bear to see her songs be buried like that, so… I pretended to be her to participate in the competition. I didn’t know that Qiao Xi was Fu Sheng at all.
