The replies below consisted of various voices —
“Anyone needs snacks and stools? Here, sit in the front row. The view is great here~”
“I’m in tears… There goes my youth. My first love and my idol has been taken away by An Xiaxia!”
“Bitch! Hooking up with guys is all she’s good at!”
“What’s wrong with you? It’s so obviously a two-way thing. Get your facts straight!”
Sheng Yize’s reply was the seventh one under that comment. The person made a speech of it. “Tch, I don’t see what makes her stand out. She’s got so many flaws. Good looks count for nothing. So many women in showbiz are prettier than she is! And she has no family background to speak of. It’s just so disappointing to see him choose her, a nobody! You can give that care and love to a girl good enough for you, but why her? It’s not fair!”
Sheng Yize’s reply was straightforward. “Because I like her and that’s enough. Maybe she’s not as good as others expect, but to me, she’s the best. Maybe others think very highly of me, but when I’m with her, I’m by no means perfect or impeccable. We met each other, we fell in love, and we both have room for improvement, but we both hope to become better people for each other. I won’t ask for everyone’s blessings, but I do hope that her life won’t be affected by public opinion.”
That speech was deemed the most touching confession of love and all the replies beneath it immediately changed their tune.
“You’re so handsome and I agree with everything out of your mouth!”
“He’s retired from showbiz and no longer a public figure. He has the right to be with whoever he likes!”
“Celebrity or common folk, I’ve always liked Sheng Yize. I like his personality, his character, and his work. His real fans would never attack him, but will offer their good wishes.”
Apart from the first few replies, all the rest remained nice and civilized until the last one.
People had a tendency to go with the flow and Sheng Yize’s reply had set the tone. Impartial bystanders and those who held grudges against An Xiaxia were all moved by those words. After that, the replies were filled with good wishes for the both of them.
“From school uniform to a wedding gown, she’s worth it~ Can’t wait to see it!”
That quote came up the most frequently, and each time it showed up, it was followed by quite a few replies beneath it.
The post had become so popular that it caught the teachers’ attention. The dean joined in with a threatening message: “Where’s the admin? Delete the post! Anyone still replying to it will be named and criticized during the flag-raising ceremony next Monday!”
However, no one bought his empty threat and everyone began to tease him instead. “Sir, guess who I am. Can you tell which class I’m from by the look of my online ID?”
Dean: … Damn it. These brats were the worst students ever!
Reading all these, An Xiaxia was touched.
She suddenly felt that those people at school weren’t all that annoying.
“She’s… worth it…” she mumbled and grinned.
Su Xiaomo waved her hand in front of her face. “Wake up!”
“Yes, you are! You simpleton!”
“… A personal attack is illegal!”
The two went on bantering, then Su Xiaomo suddenly said, “Stop! Cease fire! I just remembered something. Li Fanxing’s been shooting a campus drama recent and the rumor is that our school will be a location for the shoot… She’s showing off all over social media!”
“Why should I care?” An Xiaxia snorted.
However, she ran into Li Fanxing the following day during PE class.
The crew was shooting on the sports ground during An Xiaxia’s PE class. Spotting her, Li Fanxing marched over, bloated with pride. “Now matter how much affection he shows you in public, nothing will change. You’ll never stand shoulder to shoulder with him!”
