He Wanyi and Tang Xi went backstage. No one dared to pick on Tang Xi, because of He Wanyi’s presence. Tang Xi, when she saw He Wanyi still stayed at the backstage, couldn’t help but despairingly ask, “Sister Wanyi, are you waiting to send me onto the stage?”
“Alas, prettie, don’t hurry me to go. My staying here will do you no harm but good.” With that, she sat down on a chair and raised her eyebrows. “Besides, my gift hasn’t arrived yet. There is no hurry.”
Hearing this ,Tang Xi could only stand by her side helplessly. He Wanyi sitting on her chair observed several girls who were looking towards her and Tang Xi’s side, smiled and suddenly stood up. “I need to use the toilet. Wait for me for a while.”
Tang Xi nodded and He Wanyi left. At this time, those girls who were standing not far away came over. They stared at Tang Xi arrogantly and their eyes had malicious gleams. Tang Xi raised her eyebrows and looked at them without batting her eyelid, “What’s up?”
“Hey, Tang Xi, we heard that you are a selfish person. Driving the head teacher away, stealing our thunder on the red carpet, and made big stars protect you. Do you think you’re awesome? Do you think you are above us?!” A girl looked sarcastically at Tang Xi. “Do you think you obtain all of this privilege by yourself because of your greatness? No! It’s just because of your family background!”
Tang Xi listened to them with a smile and didn’t bother to speak. One of the girls frowned and shouted angrily when she saw Tang Xi kept her silence, “Hey! You dare not even answer us?”
“I just don’t want to answer you.” Tang Xi sat down and looked up at them. Although she was sitting, her aura was domineering. She snorted and coldly said, “Since you know my family is powerful enough to have you kicked out of the school, why do you still mess with me? Aren’t you afraid that I will do to you what I did to that teacher?”
“You!” one of the girls was irritated by her and another girl snorted, “Don’t you dare!”
“You can have a go at trying to stop me.” With that, Tang Xi took out her cell phone and called Xiao Jing. She waved her cell phone at the girls and gave a cold smile. “You knew that I’m narrow-minded and vengeful. Why do you still mess with me? Are you courting death?”
Now she finally knew why Sister Wanyi insisted on accompanying her to the backstage. It was because she would have trouble here. It was way better to chat with Sister Wanyi and talk about her company’s future than have a stupid verbal battle with these silly girls.
One of the girls rushed up to grab her cell phone when she saw Tang Xi did dial a number. Just then, He Wanyi’s voice rang behind them, “What are you doing?!”
The girl was startled. He Wanyi hurried up and one of the girls timidly greeted her, “Sister Wanyi, we…”
“Huang Xiaoyi, what makes you think you can bully people? Is it because your father’s company gained our He Family’s investment?” He Wanyi stared at the girl who was the most hostile towards Tang Xi and said coldly.
“No, Sister Wanyi.” Huang Xiaoyi hurriedly apologized to Tang Xi. “Sorry, Xiao Rou, I didn’t mean to offend you.”
Tang Xi shrugged, and Xiao Jing had picked up the phone. Hearing his voice on the phone, Tang Xi put the cellphone to her ear. The girls’ hearts jerked sharply when they noticed her action. Xiao Jing heard He Wanyi’s voice on the phone and asked hurriedly, “Rourou, what’s wrong? Anything bad happened to you?”
Tang Xi felt warm in her heart when she heard this, but she could solve this trivial matter herself and didn’t have to bother Xiao Jing. She called Xiao Jing not to complain to him but for something else. She said with a smile, “No. It’s just that the show is going to start soon and I haven’t seen you here, so I called you so that you could hurry up and come in. I’ll be the first to perform and I’ll play piano.”
Now the show was going to start.
When Tang Xi mentioned piano, she suddenly noticed one of the girls secretly sneered. Tang Xi narrowed her eyes and looked at He Wanyi who raised her eyebrows and gave her a questioning look. Tang Xi took her hand and asked in a low voice, “Sister Wanyi, I remember you said your gift for me would save me at the critical time, right?”
He Wanyi smiled, raised her eyebrows and whispered, “Sure, I studied in this school for three years. I know the little tricks of these students well. Wait for two minutes. My gift will be coming soon.”
At this time, the host came to ask Tang Xi to perform. Tang Xi was going to go the stage, when a staff member came over, saying, “The piano’s strings have a problem with them. It seems that they were cut short by someone! Tang Xi can’t perform now. Shall we skip to the next performance?”
“No way!” He Wanyi frowned and said, “The first performance is very important. The judges are watching under the stage! You can’t cancel the first performance. We won’t allow it.”
“But the piano has broken down. We can’t let the audience wait under the stage.” The host said with a frown. Although he was a bit angry, he spoke politely, because He Wanyi was a very famous star.
He Wanyi raised her eyebrows. “Who said Tang Xi can’t play without this piano?”
Tang Xi turned to He Wanyi and asked with surprise, “Is your gift a piano?”
He Wanyi shrugged, looked at Tang Xi and said with a smile. “You’re so smart that I have no sense of achievement.”
Tang Xi smiled, hugged He Wanyi and smiled. “Sister Wanyi, you’re so nice to me. Thank you.”
Ignoring those girls whose faces were all dark and cloudy, He Wanyi patted Tang Xi’s back and said in a low voice, “Then win the title of Campus Belle!”
Tang Xi smiled and raised her eyebrows. “Okay.”
The staff had already carried the piano onto the stage. Tang Xi took a look at He Wanyi and turned to the stage. The moment she stepped onto the stage, the auditorium broke into warm applause.
“Look! It’s the queen of the red carpet! I didn’t expect she was going to be the first to perform!”
“God, she is gorgeous! She’s like a queen in one of those fairy tales!”
“Isn’t she Xiao Rou? She will play piano right? Didn’t she grow up in the mountains? Can she actually play? Does she know what she is even doing?”
“I bet she doesn’t even know what ‘do’ ‘re’ ‘mi’ is! She is going to make a spectacle of herself!”
