I Want a Lifetime with You Chapter 87

Following the surface of the news on the Internet, Shi Wei was attacked by netizens and keyboard warriors. Her fans were disappointed with what she had done and the fans of her victims were upset that Shi Wei had sabotaged their idols.

With regard to the few film producers and directors who were involved in the scandal of Shi Wei, they kept silent. Although the media and reporters attempted to contact them, they were denied access with all kinds of excuses. Such action instantly put Shi Wei into the spotlight of beratement.

The entertainment industry had always been hard to navigate. The successful celebrities on top would be glorified while the unsuccessful ones would be ignored. In dealing with this matter, Shi Wei’s talent management agency had issued an emergency press release to explain the matter to the public and stating that she was framed.

Once the press release was out, sexy photographs of Shi Wei were released by a small magazine publisher. The photographs seemed to be taken when Shi Wei was seventeen or eighteen years old. At that time, Shi Wei had just entered the entertainment industry.

Once the photographs were published, all the efforts to curb the impact on her image became futile. The talent management agency of Shi Wei requested her to rest at home straightaway and avoid all work in the near future. All the product endorsement work of Shi Wei got withdrawn one after another. Most of them wanted to terminate their contract with Shi Wei.

“Sigh. Sigh!”

At this time, the Shi family was like being covered in dark clouds. Shi Wei was extremely furious and she felt nothing was right around her, including the way her maid looked at her.

Shi Wei had been staying at home for two full days. During this period, she did not dare to go out as she was worried of being disturbed by paparazzies.

The distraught Shi Wei smashed and broke many things at home, including both fragile items and durable items.

Jiang Yu knew that Shi Wei’s mood was terrible and she instructed the people at her family on purpose to be more alert. However, doing so did not brighten up Shi Wei’s day or alleviate the pain in her heart.

She did not know who the person behind the sabotage was.

It was just too common to see people getting sabotaged in the entertainment industry. Those who were popular would give those who were not popular a hard time and it was not unusual for rivals to find ways to diss each other. Most of the time, people would just throw others under the bus but they would never expose information in such a blatant manner.

This incident had totally caught Shi Wei off guard and she was not prepared to face such an issue. It was obvious that the mastermind was well prepared as more negative news of her were published once a damage control press release was made by her public relations team.

She would definitely want the saboteurs to pay the price if she knew who they were.

“Wei, you have to eat something!”

Jiang Yu was heartbroken when she saw Shi Wei getting thinner as time went by. “Come, I’ve made you your favorite dishes. Please give it a try!”

“No, I don’t want to eat!” Shi Wei pushed Jiang Yu’s hand away furiously. The food then fell on the ground.

“Wei!” Jiang Yu gritted her teeth and said, “When do you plan to stop all these nonsense? Look at how miserable you are now.” Jiang Yu was heartbroken when she saw Shi Wei giving up on herself and at the same time feeling hopeless at her. “Look at yourself! You haven’t been eating for the past two days. What’s the point of you smashing the food served by the maid?”

“But mother, what can I do? I feel that I’m doomed.” Shi Wei had lost weight and she felt really helpless about the situation. She then continued, “My agency had asked me to rest at home but I know that they are giving up on me. Those product sponsors are also demanding to change their product spokesperson. Mommy, who would sabotage me so badly?”

Shi Wei sought a hug from Jiang Yu and said, “I’ve worked so hard all these while before becoming a star. I really don’t want my celebrity career to end here. Mommy, could you please help me?”

Shi Wei tugged on Jiang Yu’s sleeves and asked, “Mommy, aren’t you the nicest person to me? You have a solution, right?”

Jiang Yu frowned as there was nothing much she could do. She was neither powerful nor influential. All she could rely on was the Shi family.

If this matter was brought up within the family, everyone in the family would start criticizing Shi Wei. This issue was indeed a tough one.

Shi Wei was a little disappointed when she saw Jiang Yu’s face fall. She said, “Mommy, do you still love me? How could you see me being sabotaged by others?”

“How is it possible that mommy doesn’t love you?” Jiang Yu patted Shi Wei on her shoulder while hugging her. She continued, “You are my only daughter and I love you dearly. There may be a way out but…”

“But what?” Shi Wei quickly grabbed Jiang Yu’s hand and pursed her lips. “Mommy, you do have a solution, don’t you? I knew you would have a way to resolve this problem.”

Jiang Yu was in a difficult position but she still gave her daughter a nod. She asked, “Do you remember Xicheng?”

“Xicheng?” Shi Wei replied, feeling dumbfounded. She did not think of Fu Xicheng as she was extremely busy lately. Now when Jiang Yu mentioned his name, Shi Wei could recall that Fu Xicheng was her fiancé although they had not met for quite some time. Shi Wei looked at Jiang Yu in grief and said, “He did not even give me a call after my news was published in the media. Mommy, do you think that the Fu family will abandon me because of this incident? After all, Fu Yuqing was agreeable to let her be with Fu Xicheng because she was the eldest daughter of the Shi family and held some shares of the Shi family.”

When Shi Wei thought of this, she subconsciously gripped Jiang Yu’s hand.

Jiang Yu was in pain and said, “Wei, what are you doing?” Shi Wei only came back to her senses when she heard Jiang Yu’s scream. She took her hands back and said, “I’m sorry mommy. I didn’t do it on purpose. It’s just that… Xicheng didn’t even show his care for me…I…”

“Who told you that Xicheng didn’t care about you?” Jiang Yu looked at Shi Wei strangely. “You locked yourself in the room and refused to see anyone. Xicheng did visit our house but I thought that you wouldn’t want him to see you in your current state.” Jiang Yu continued to hug Shi Wei and attempted to console her, “Xicheng was worried about you but you had switched off your phone.”

“Is that so?” Shi Wei’s eyes lit brightly and asked, “Did Xicheng really come to visit me?”

“Of course. Why would I lie?” An idea seemed to have come to Jiang Yu’s mind and she continued, “Do you still remember the special guest at your grandpa’s birthday celebration?”

“Mommy, are you referring to Fu Chengyan?” Shi Wei suspiciously asked.

“Yes. Isn’t Xicheng related to Fu Chengyan? If Fu Chengyan is willing to help, there will be a solution for you.” This was what Jiang Yu had in mind.

Prior to this, Jiang Yu had deliberately investigated the background of Fu Chengyan when he was invited to their residence. Only at that time, she knew that Fu Chengyan was a powerful and influential figure. Coincidentally, Xicheng shared the same family name as Fu Chengyan and they may be related.

The Fu family had a stake in a wide-range of business sectors. Fu Chengyan was also the person in-charge of Shengyuan Group. It was said that he had many personal assets and one of them was a production company. If Fu Chengyan was willing to help, such small matter of Shi Wei’s would not be a problem.

Shi Wei chinned up after hearing her mother’s words but her spirit dampened again when she recalled Fu Chengyan’s impression of her. “But Fu Chengyan can be quite irritating. He…”

“Do you still want to be a celebrity?” Jiang Yu said with a stern voice, “If you still wish to survive in the entertainment industry, you better don’t be so arrogant. Further, if our family could pull strings with Fu Chengyan, your father would no longer need to ask for favors from the Yun family.”

Jiang Yu then thought of the incident where Shi Nuan did not show up without informing her. Although Yun Shen did not find fault with them, the Yun family had clearly indicated that they would no longer collaborate with the Shi family.

As one such announcement was made by the Yun family, it would mean that no one in Jiang City would dare to work together with the Shi family.

Recently, Shi Jingzheng was extremely busy and that made Jiang Yu furious. She blamed everything on Shi Nuan. If it wasn’t for the fact that Shi Wei was in trouble, Jiang Yu would definitely find fault with Shi Nuan.

Shi Wei’s eyes flashed and she could not believe that Shi Nuan managed to escape from the situation. Shi Wei’s hatred towards Shi Nuan increased when she saw herself in trouble, as compared to how well Shi Nuan was doing.

“Mommy, I’ll have my meal now. Could you accompany me to the spa after this? I need to meet Xicheng in my best form. When Xicheng sees me, he would definitely help me, wouldn’t he?” Shi Wei knew she was grasping at straws but she still tried to be hopeful. She then said, “Based on the relationship between Xicheng and Fu Chengyan, the latter would definitely help me, wouldn’t he?”

“Yes. My daughter is so beautiful. Everyone who rested their eyes on her would fall in love with her!” When Jiang Yu saw Shi Wei gaining back her confidence, she held Shi Wei’s hand and stood up feeling relieved. “Come, let me make you some food while you get yourself dressed up.”

“Sure. Mommy, you better hurry up as I haven’t eaten anything in the past few days.” Shi Wei was in joy again when she thought of herself overcoming her worries and appearing before audiences in the near future. Shi Wei ate three bowls of rice and she happily dressed herself up to go out with Jiang Yu.

Shi Yunsheng was accompanied and supported by Mr. Yang, the butler, at the balcony. When he saw Shi Wei and Jiang Yu, he shook his head in disapproval and said, “Sigh. What a sin! When did the Shi family commit such a sin?”

“Master Shi, I think it’s better for you to put the matter aside.” Mr. Yang patted Shi Yunsheng’s arm while consoling him. “It seems that young mistress and madam are beyond help.”

“Sigh!” Shi Yunsheng shook his head again and said, “Whatever! Just let them go and see what other things they could do.” Shi Yunsheng waved his hands and added, “Yang, how’s Nuan lately?”

Mr. Yang’s eyes flickered and Shi Yunsheng responded with a frown, “Just tell me the truth!”

“Well, this incident happened a few days back. But second young mistress is alright now.” Mr. Yang then paused. Shi Yunsheng got more suspicious and asked, “What happened to her?”

“Old Master and Madam didn’t let her off the hook. A few days back, they threatened the second young mistress and brought her to meet the third young master of the Yun family. Second young mistress almost got into trouble, but she was subsequently alright. Therefore…”

“Why didn’t you tell me such an important matter earlier?” Shi Yunsheng rapped his walking stick on the ground before giving Mr. Yang a cold stare. “What a beast! What sin had the Shi family committed to the extent that they needed to sell their daughter?”
