Xia Qingyang took a few moments before she understood. “I knew you’re a clever one. Rest assured, I’ll ask the doctor, and when I have a clear answer, I’ll tell you first thing.”
Xing Ke Station.
Chief Hu was in his office. He did not want to watch Classic X Files; he did not want to even contribute a miniscule amount to its viewership ratings.
But when he heard that the secret guest Lu Man had invited was actually Wang Juhuai, he could not help but switch the channel to Dong Hua Satellite TV.
Meanwhile, the director of Friday (with the Stars), Kuang Guanghui, the director of The Performer, Ge Guangzhen, as well as Chief Hu’s secretary, Liu Ye, Assistant Chief Wang, and Director Huang were all gathered in Chief Hu’s office.
When Chief Hu changed channels, Lu Man’s performance had just finished and Fan Yue was interviewing Wang Juhuai onstage.
They tuned in just in time to see Wang Juhuai personally say that he was Lu Man’s father.
Chief Hu sucked in air and it got stuck in his throat.
Wang Juhuai… was actually Lu Man’s stepfather!
So what if he’s only a stepfather?
Wang Juhuai joined a public event—and a variety show at that—despite having not done so before, just to show his support for Lu Man.
The “step-” in the front was redundant. He was as good as being her biological father.
“Chief Hu…” There was a tremor in Kuang Guanghui’s voice.
If they had never targeted Lu Man, had resolved their differences, and had invited Lu Man directly, would it have been possible for them to also invite Wang Juhuai?
If so, the one with all the glory now would have been them, Friday (with the Stars), not Classic X Files.
Kuang Guanghui did not know, but when Sun Yiwu and Ji Cheng joined Classic X Files because of Lu Man, Ge Guangzhen also had the same thoughts as Kuang Guanghui and was equally regretful.
“Off it.” Chief Hu did not want to contribute anything more to the Classic X Files viewership ratings. “Just be more polite towards Lu Man next time.”
It was you who wanted to make trouble for Lu Man, Kuang Guanghui thought to himself.
He did not have such thoughts at first.
But now, because of Chief Hu’s orders, the whole of Friday (with the Stars) was on Lu Man’s bad side.
“Chief Hu, what if… what if we invited Lu Man to Friday (with the Stars)? Is it possible that Wang Juhuai would come as well?” Kuang Guanghui asked. “Luckily we did not outright say we were against Lu Man last time, which means we did not really destroy the facade of having relations with her.”
But it was almost the same as destroying all relations with her.
Irritated, Chief Hu coldly said, “Then you go and ask, see if she agrees.”
Kuang Guanghui said it only for fun, as a form of self-comfort.
He, too, felt that Lu Man would not agree.
At least, not now.
He must wait until the day when their relations had warmed over.
Didn’t matter what Chief Hu’s stance was. He’ll represent their group and make peace with Lu Man.
Seeing the good response from the netizens, Xia Qingwei finally relaxed.
It’s all thanks to Wang Juhuai.
Who knew his brief appearance could attract so many viewers?
As Lu Man said, the rare is highly sought-after.
Because the next day was a Saturday, Lu Man did not have to attend school.
Han Zhuoli was free too, so both of them did not go home after watching the show and stayed in Yi Garden.
The next day, Han Zhuoli had yet to wake up when Lu Man woke.
Lu Man rose and looked at Han Zhuoli’s sleeping face before gently pecking him on his lips.
