Chapter 127: Dog Biting Dog (4)
The woman had a loud voice, so when she talked, everyone looked over.
“Are you really that Xing Wanshuang? Heavens, I actually met an A-list celebrity!” The woman was very excited, “Can we take a picture?”
Although Xing Wanshuang didn’t like their vulgar looks, she still smiled generously in hopes of selling the items, “Ok.”
The two women quickly gave the camera to the man by their side and the men took a few pictures of them.
The woman asked Xing Wanshuang again, “Why did you set up a stall? Are you here to experience the lifestyle here?”
The program group made a rule that they couldn’t say they were recording a program when setting up stalls, so Xing Wanshuang just smiled and didn’t say anything. Even the cameramen had to use small video cameras to secretly film the show.
The men in front of Xing Wanshuang’s stall had already picked up the boxes of items in her stall. When they saw what’s inside, they asked, “What are you selling?”
Zhou Yunchuan responded, “Caterpillar fungus. We just picked it yesterday.”
The woman’s voice from before had already attracted numerous people nearby. An older man looked and shook his head, “How is this a caterpillar fungus? Maiden, did you pick this at the Nan Jia Village? These are just ordinary items; it looks a bit like a caterpillar fungus so many people think that is the real thing. In reality, it’s actually harmful to your body if you eat them!”
Once he had said this, a few others also carefully looked at the items inside the boxes. After inspecting the items, they all shook their heads and said, “How can caterpillar funguses be so easily found? With just one look, you can tell this is obviously fake! Only the shape of this item is similar, but the color isn’t even right! Maiden, didn’t you see the ones being sold in the medical shops?”
Xing Wanshuang didn’t expect this outcome. She had never paid any attention to the appearance of a caterpillar fungus since her family didn’t even eat this!
Suddenly, she thought of old man Qiao whose body wasn’t well before. She had heard Qiao Ruohuan mention that she had bought quite a bit of caterpillar fungus from the medical shop before and after the old man ate it, he got much better!
So, Qiao Ruohuan already knew that this was fake caterpillar fungus which was why she has refused her offer to take it? Did Qiao Ruohuan didn’t tell her on purpose because she wanted to see her make a fool out of herself?!
Xing Wanshuang suddenly turned around to look at Qiao Ruohuan. The latter hurriedly waved her hand, exclaiming that she didn’t know.
How would Xing Wanshuang believe this? She tightened her hands into a fist and anger rose inside her heart. She had never lost her face in public ever since she was a child!
In the beginning, because there were a lot of people surrounding the place, everyone spoke politely. However, when people found out that Xing Wanshuang was actually a celebrity, they started to speak impolitely—
“Heh, and she’s a celebrity. Normally, she earned so much and now, she wants to swindle people at our place!”
“Right? That item is obviously not a caterpillar fungus. I don’t believe that she didn’t know. She really has a black heart, too greedy!”
“She’s called Xing Wanshuang, right? Which movies did she act in before?” Someone was in doubt before responding, “Oh, I remembered. My daughter has been watching 《Sheng Shi》, isn’t Xing Wanshuang acting in it?”
“Quickly tell your daughter to stop watching it. It’ll teach your children to go on the wrong path!”
People were pointing at her and even the program group’s faces changed. They hurriedly went over to help.
Xing Yichen detected that something was wrong too, so he rushed through the crowd.
Seeing that his sister was about to cry, he hurriedly pulled her behind him. He said, “Everyone, even though this is a market, this is not the place where you can casually speak and point at someone! She is my sister. Speak to me if you have something against her. What’s the point of bullying a girl?”
His attitude was stern and because of his imposing manner, the people who were watching passively were a little nervous.
Some people just scolded them a little more before directly leaving. Very quickly, everyone left Xing Wanshuang’s stall.
Xing Yichen turned around and said, “Little Shuang, are you ok?”
Xing Wanshuang knew that they were still recording the program, so she tried her best to hold in her tears. She shook her head at Xing Yichen and lowered her voice, “Brother, I’ll tell you later.”
She then swept her glance at Qiao Ruohuan’s direction.
