Chapter 1161 - 1161 Sincerity
The National Planetarium.
Shen Li and Xu Yin walked out of the hall together.
The sky was already dark, and the autumn wind with a slight chill swept up the fallen leaves on the ground.
“This time, the observation has finally gone smoothly,” said Xu Yin with a smile, “I didn’t make you come here for nothing.”
Bowing her head slightly, Shen Li said sincerely, “I still have to thank you.”
There were not many suitable opportunities for observation here, and it was all thanks to Xu Yin’s help this time.
“What are you thanking me for? No matter what, you’re still partly my student. As a teacher, isn’t this what I should do?”
Xu Yin doted on her, so he did not mind. After thinking for a moment, he asked, “Previously, when you urgently left, did you manage to settle everything?”
Shen Li’s lips curved up slightly, “Yes, it’s fine now. I’m sorry for making you worry.
Xu Yin waved his hand dismissively.
“That’s good, that’s good. I’ve known you for so many years, but that was the first time I saw you so nervous! It must have been something very important.”
Shen Li’s eyelids drooped.
Xu Yin did not really intend on asking for details and changed the topic.
“How are you going home?”
“Alright. Be careful on the road.”
“Yes, thank you. Goodbye, Teacher Xu.”
After saying goodbye to Xu Yin, Shen Li got into the car and left.
Not long after she had driven away, her phone rang.
“Hello,” she answered the call via Bluetooth.
“President Shen. There’s a turning point in Xiang Yao’s case… Tian Zhenzhen retracted her testimony and said that although she was drunk that day, she was conscious and that she had sex with Xiang Yao of her own free will.”
“Is that so?” Shen Li raised her eyebrows slightly.
“Yes, no one expected it. Before this, she hadn’t wanted anything and had insisted that Xiang Yao should go to jail. I don’t know what happened, but suddenly…” Zhao Xuan shook his head. “This kind of public prosecution case has to go through the process. However, whether the case is revoked or not, the final result should be the same. This time, Xiang Yao has probably escaped and won’t be going to prison.”
Shen Li did not comment.
For Xiang Yao, the real scary thing was not the rape charge, but the fact that he had offended someone he could not afford to offend.
He was impulsive. After finding out that Yu Yu had framed him on purpose, he had immediately revealed everything without caring about anything else.
Even if he could get away with the rape case, the Yu family was still waiting for him.
At that time, he might wish he was locked up in prison instead.
“What’s the situation with the Yu family?” she asked.
Zhao Xuan was stunned.
“They… seem to be very calm at the moment. I haven’t heard any news about them yet. Oh, there’s one more thing that you should already know. Yu Yu has left Yu Media. I heard that she has taken the initiative to resign from the board of directors, and Yu Jia has replaced her.”
No news was the worst news.
Their silence was even more strange, especially after the Yu family had found out about what Yu Yu had done.
However, all of this had nothing to do with her. She would let the Yu and Xiang families deal with it themselves.
“I see,” she said.
Zhao Xuan heard the calmness in her voice, as if she had already expected this. After thinking for a moment, he faintly guessed what was going on.
Perhaps President Shen had done it personally?
Otherwise, the situation would not have turned around overnight.
However, just as President Shen had said, these things had nothing to do with them, so they just had to watch the show.
He brought up another matter.
“By the way, President Shen, the celebration party for “Chasing the Light” will be held this Saturday. It’ll be held at Aqua Front. Do you… still not plan to attend?”
Shen Li replied with a “Hmm.”
Zhao Xuan’s tone was hesitant.
“This… but President Shen, there’s a situation I’m not sure if you’re aware of, but I still have to report it to you. Second Master Lu will also be coming to this celebration party.”
Shen Li was taken aback.
Actually, she had not been aware of it…
Zhao Xuan instantly felt as if he was being sandwiched between two biscuits. After deliberating for a while, he said, “Actually… Actually, we only just received the news. It… It seems that it was Second Master Lu himself who made the decision.
The box office earnings for “Chasing the Light” had already reached 2.24 billion, and according to the industry forecast, it was predicted that it would exceed 2.5 billion when it finally stopped screening.
Not only had it become the new champion of the National Day box office, but it had also pulled ahead and left a huge gap from “Qin City”, which was in second place with 1.83 billion.
Therefore, this celebration party would be very grand.
In addition to Shengguang Media’s own staff, the main creators of “Chasing the Light”, various media outlets, and many of Shengguang Media’s business partners had also been invited.
Among them, Lu Corporation had given “Chasing the Light” the most slots, so naturally, it occupied an extremely important spot.
Originally, President Chen, who was in charge of the Lu Corporation’s theater chain business, was the one who was supposed to attend. But who would have known that the one who had agreed to attend was actually the head of the Lu Corporation, Lu Huaiyu?
Shen Li did not reply.
Hearing this silent response, Zhao Xuan felt troubled.
“Actually, it’s not strange for Second Master Lu to come over personally. The partners invited this time attached great importance to this celebration party, and all the people who are coming are influential figures. The results of the earnings for “Chasing the Light” this time are too impressive, so the outside world is anticipating that you’ll attend!”
Now that Shengguang Media was in the limelight, everyone wanted to meet the legendary boss.
After a while, Shen Li said, “I understand. I’ll consider this matter again.”
In the study room of Rongyue Mansion.
The night breeze blew and the night was dark.
Lu Huaiyu was leaning back in his chair and talking on the phone.
Yi Bin said, “Second Master, we can sign the contract with Chengmeng Entertainment tomorrow morning. Other than that, the other partners of Yu Media have also informed us that they will not be renewing their contracts with Yu Media.”
“Yes.” Lu Huaiyu’s voice was faint.
Yi Bin hesitated for a moment, but still asked, “Second Master, actually, with the current situation of the Yu Media, even if you don’t do anything, they probably won’t be able to hold on for long. You’re…”
Lu Huaiyu’s posture was languid as he looked out of the window.
“The celebration party for Shengguang Media will be held tomorrow night”
Yi Bin was stunned, not knowing why he had suddenly mentioned this.
“Yes. You mean…”
Lu Huaiyu’s thin lips curled up slightly, as he spoke lazily.
“Since we’ve been invited, we have to show some sincerity.”
