Chapter 5 – A Little Favor (2)
“My sister’s manager?” she interrupted. This answer greatly surprised Su Jishi. And when she remembered what the students had said before, she was able to piece the puzzle together.
“Yes, you are right. Miss Su Jinqing’s stage name is ‘Su Jin’ and she is an artist under contract with Huanchen Entertainment.” Seeing Su Jishi’s obvious disbelief, he quickly took out his cell phone and sought proof of him accompanying Su Jin to various events.
Then, he handed Su Jishi his phone while crouched on all fours on the floor.
Su Jishi silently took the phone and flicked through the images in it. These proofs included numerous photos, videos, and even her sister’s Weibo account.
Although they were twins, they have only seen each other a few times since their parents had divorced back when they were still eight. Therefore, she had no idea that the gentle and shy little girl in her memory, who had always followed her and held the corner of her dress, to have grown into such a dazzling star.
The last video taken on his phone was from a few days ago.
Su Jinqing…Su Jin, rather, was attending an extravagant dinner party. Her skin was white as snow, her long hair was tied to a high bun and her eyes seemed to twinkle like the stars at night.
She was dressed in a silver backless dress, her thin delicate waist flaunted on her bare backside. She stepped from the car, coming from the other side of the red carpet. Some fans excitedly shook their lightsticks and called her name. As she waved to them with her head slightly tilted sideways, her eyes were calm like water, smile clear..but shallow.
The girl’s lips, dyed with an attractive pink color were lifted into a grateful smile as she watched her fans.
She stepped towards the side where the fans were, but as soon as she moved her feet, her manager Fang Xie behind her immediately stopped her and said something—it looked something in the lines that there was not enough time for her to waste.
Su Jin’s eyebrows slightly frowned and her lips puckered, her face looking downcast for a moment.
She lowered her neck like an aggrieved swan and left following her manager from behind.
Su Jishi was only silent. In the small screen, was another person’s life. It looked brilliant, but behind that was also veiled darkness…
The sisters have the same appearance, but when Su Jishi looked at the familiar appearance on the screen, she only felt strange.
She was bothered by what she felt but decided to keep her thoughts to herself for now. She threw back the cell phone harshly and asked, “Why do you want me to see this? Since you are Su Jinqing’s manager, does that justify kidnapping me?”
“It’s not kidnapping, it’s not kidnapping.” Fang Xie denied in a mantra. “… I just wanted to ask you a little favor, Miss Su. Please hear me out.”
Su Jishi saw the desperation in the man’s eyes, so she kept quiet and listened to what he had to say, her hands resting on her waist.
Fang Xie dared not hide anymore and poured out all his words!
“Although Su Jin has only started her career three years ago, she has become the most popular flower in the entertainment industry! She signed a five-year contract with the company at the beginning, and still has one and a half years of obligation to settle!”
“—but two months ago, she suddenly said that she wanted to leave the entertainment circle! The company certainly didn’t agree. I also advised her several times and even cut down many unnecessary events she didn’t like; I rejected all the movies and variety shows she didn’t want to take.. but she left a retirement letter and suddenly disappeared!”
Looking at her unperturbed expression, Fang Xie knew that she did not believe anything he had said. So, he quickly took out the letter from his pocket and presented it to Su Jishi with both hands.
“Miss Su Jishi…” He subconsciously lowered his head, “This is the personal letter she left at that time. We sent the letter to have it appraised—and it was indeed her own handwriting.”
Su Jishi opened the letter suspiciously and saw only a few lines written in it:
‘To the leaders and managers of Huanchen Entertainment, to Fang Xie and my team:
Sorry, but I’m leaving.
In the beginning, entering the entertainment circle was a helpless choice. And thanks to the help of people who believed in me, I was able to get this fame, but this only feels like a mistake.
Three years later, I feel more strongly that the entertainment circle is truly not for me.
All my income in the recent years has been kept in my bank account. Please negotiate the termination of the contract for me.
Please take my place and thank you.
Please replace me and apologize for my fans.
After reading this, Su Jishi couldn’t help but smile widely. She hasn’t seen Su Jinqing for years, but her sister seemed to have grown to a person with a lot of courage! Good, good! So decisive! Quite like her own demeanor.
