Chapter 638: Please Forgive Us!
Wu Zhicheng was also there during the battle on Mount Yan. Even though he stood far away because of the lower status of the Wu family, how could he not recognize Chen Fan?
He was Chen Beixuan, the most powerful person in the world!
The starlet next to him said, "Brother Cheng, I think you should punish her a bit!"
Xu Rongfei's career had been thriving over the last two years and many people in the industry were envious of her fame.
Wu Zhicheng slapped the starlet.
"Brother Cheng, why did you do this to me?"
The starlet was startled.
"If you say something bad about Xu Rongfei again, I will kill you, believe it or not!" What Wu Zhicheng said frightened the starlet, but he didn't know that his legs were also trembling.
He would have never thought that…
Xu Rongfei's boyfriend would be Chen Fan!
Although Chen Fan had already gotten engaged on North Mountain a few days back, it was normal for a big cheese like him to have more than one woman, so Wu Zhicheng would certainly misunderstand it. After all, he had also never heard of anyone in his social circle who only had one partner.
"I didn't know such a powerful person had her back! Fortunately, I didn't force her to sleep with me. If not, the Wu family would have been exterminated by Chen Beixuan."
Wu Zhicheng was terrified.
Xu Rongfei had been rising to fame after playing several leading roles and was regarded as the "Goddess of the People." However, the seniors of Tian He Entertainment thought that Xu Rongfei was too arrogant because she wouldn't comply with the unspoken rules. The other female stars were willing to perform in different events or drink and sleep with the seniors of the company, but she didn't even want to dine with them, as if she were a princess.
"She's indeed making a lot of money for our company, and Li Xinru and Zhifan adore her. If not, I would have cut all her jobs long before."
This was exactly what Wu Zhicheng's father said.
He realized then that Xu Rongfei wasn't arrogant. She was truly superior!
"Why didn't she just tell us she's Chen Beixuan's girlfriend?" Wu Zhicheng said as he suddenly thought about his brother, Wu Zhifan, and he called someone immediately.
"What? He's heading to the Yan Jin Film Academy? Stop him quickly and ask him not to provoke Xu Rongfei!"
Wu Zhicheng hung up and rushed out of the door right away.
At the same time, the Internet had been chaotic.
Such earth-shattering news instantly aroused people's passion for gossiping.
Many said with pity, "What a shame! Xu Rongfei should stay away from any dating rumors and maintain her image. Having a boyfriend now would hit her career hard."
"Yeah, I heard that she has quite a bad relationship with her company. After this incident, the seniors might restrict her activities."
Xu Rongfei's manager, Sister Li, immediately called her.
"Fei Fei, are the photos on the Internet real?"
"What photos? I'm eating with Brother Chen Fan." Xu Rongfei widened her eyes and wondered.
"You… Ah, what should I do with you?"
Sister Li was enraged.
She had no idea why Xu Rongfei still had the mood to eat right then.
"Fine, just don't make any more trouble. Remain silent when the paparazzi show up to question you. I'll deal with it."
Sister Li started calling each website to ask them to delete everything about the incident and found someone to send out messages on behalf of Xu Rongfei's studio, saying that those photos were fake.
Xu Rongfei hung up, looking confused.
In the meantime, they were in a restaurant near the academy. It was small, but the private room was beautifully decorated and the food was also delicious.
Xu Rongfei's roommate, Ningxin, was also there with them.
She opened her eyes wide and glanced at Chen Fan and Xu Rongfei like a curious baby.
Ningxin was looking really cute in a sleeveless mini dress with a yellow down jacket and a white pompom hat.
Chen Fan smiled gently.
Ningxin rolled her eyes and said, "Your photos have been circulating across the Internet and the incident has become the most-searched topic on Weibo. I guess everyone knows that Xu Rongfei has a boyfriend now."
"Huh? Will you be alright, Brother Chen Fan? I don't want Sister Fang to misunderstand us."
Xu Rongfei was worried.
She knew that with Chen Fan's current status, such an incident would cause a great furor once it was exposed.
"Who's Sister Fang?" Ningxin wondered.
"You knew about our engagement?" Chen Fan was surprised.
Xu Rongfei lowered her head, looking a bit sad.
"What? You're engaged?" Ningxin jumped up and her eyes popped out.
"Xiao Qiong doesn't mind about these things, and it wouldn't affect me either. Don't worry."
Chen Fan smiled and conforted Xu Rongfei.
He was the most powerful person on Earth and one of the two Earth Level Deities in China. In order to resist the United States, China would protect him no matter what and Kunlun also had his back, so a little rumor would do him no harm.
Xu Rongfei nodded.
However, Ningxin was so furious she couldn't help but get up and scold him, "Hey, have you no shame? Don't think that you can do anything you want just because you look handsome!
"You're an engaged man but you still came to see Fei Fei and even said you'll be fine after being exposed. You'll be fine but Fei Fei won't! She's at the height of her career and is having conflicts with her company at the same time. Do you know how much impact such an incident would have on her future? It might ruin her entire life! The seniors of Tian He Entertainment have always been looking for Fei Fei's weaknesses…" She yelled continuously like a machine gun.
Xu Rongfei immediately stopped her roommate and apologized to Chen Fan.
"Is your company making things difficult for you?" Chen Fan frowned.
"No, it's just that I don't really like socializing with people and some of the seniors are discontented about it," Xu Rongfei said softly.
"Don't worry, I'll deal with it. You just focus on your work."
Chen Fan nodded with coldness in his eyes.
Ningxin was speechless when she heard that.
"Who do you think you are? Do you really think Tian He Entertainment would be scared of you? Are you the young master of the Wang family, or do you work for the Xiao family?"
She didn't say this out loud though, because she didn't want to upset Xu Rongfei.
Since then, she had been silent and was really dissatisfied with Chen Fan, thinking that he was a liar, a play boy and a beast…
And yet, Xu Rongfei was thrilled to see Chen Fan after several years and she enjoyed eating with him.
"I'll be in Yan Jin these few days. If you want to see me, go to the North Mountain. Xiao Qiong and the girls like you a lot and they always ask me to introduce you to them," Chen Fan said.
Xu Rongfei nodded.
Ningxin remained silent.
When the three of them were about to leave, a tall, handsome man came into the room with a gloomy face.
Ningxin was stunned and she immediately shot Chen Fan a warning glance.
She knew that this young master from Tian He Entertainment had a fiery temper. He had once sent someone to break a leg of one of Xu Rongfei's suitors.
"Wu Zhifan, what are you doing here?"
Xu Rongfei was shocked.
"Fei Fei, you're in great trouble. Sister Li called me several times and asked me to talk to you. You better issue a statement to tell the public that you're not in a relationship, for the sake of your image and career," Wu Zhifan said.
"Right, you must be Fei Fei's boyfriend. If you really want the best for her, you better step up and tell everyone that you're just a normal classmate to Fei Fei. Her career is thriving and you should know how this dating rumor would affect her development."
Wu Zhifan looked at Chen Fan as if he wanted the best for them.
"Wu Zhifan, it's none of your business. Also, don't call me Fei Fei," Xu Rongfei said with an expressionless face.
"Fei Fei, you must think it through. You signed a five-year contract with Tian He Entertainment and the company has the right to control you. The contract clearly indicated that you can't date within five years and you're now violating this term. The company can ask you for compensation or even sue you."
Wu Zhifan started to sound threatening.
Xu Rongfei was startled.
She was still a newbie to the industry when she was offered the contract. Li Xinru had fought for more liberal terms for her back then, but Xu Rongfei hadn't thought about this particular one as she wasn't planning to date in any case. And yet, Wu Zhicheng suddenly brought it up to threaten her.
Ningxin was extremely anxious.
She glanced at Chen Fan and found that he didn't care about Wu Zhifan at all and was drinking tea calmly, making her feel completely disappointed.
"Fei Fei's boyfriend is not only a play boy, but also irresponsible. He's such an as***le! I must persuade her to break up with him!"
While Ningxin swore furiously in her mind.
The door opened again and Wu Zhicheng came in anxiously.
"Brother, why are you here?"
Wu Zhifan was shocked.
Then, Wu Zhicheng quickly walked towards Chen Fan, dropped down on his knees and said with his trembling voice, "Greetings, Heavenly Chen. I'm Wu Zhicheng from the Wu family.
"Please forgive us!"
Silence immediately fell on the room.
Wu Zhifan froze and couldn't believe what he just saw.
