Chapter 897: Announcement of Votes

Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation  Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation

George had already expected her to call, but when he actually received the call and heard her cold and distant tone, his heart could not help but tremble.

“Ning, listen to me, I really don’t know what’s going on! I already repeatedly communicated with my father and Mr. Ronai, and they are fully aware of your unwillingness to become a member. Although they felt that it was a pity, they still chose to respect your wishes and said that they would vote against you!”

Shen Li narrowed her eyes.

“Then, how do you explain this result?”

George felt a headache coming on.

“I promise! I promise I’m telling the truth! Look, we’ve worked together for so long. When have I ever lied to you? I don’t know how things turned out like this!”

Due to Shen Li’s warning, he had been really concerned about this matter. He had gotten up early in the morning just to wait.

The Bai City Fashion Association had held a collective meeting at 9 am this morning to jointly conduct the final assessment and select the thirteenth member.

At 10:30, which was 4:30 pm Capital time, the final result had been officially released on the official website.

He had waited for a full hour and a half, but who would have known that such a shocking twist would happen in the end?!

When George saw the announcement, he knew that it was bad, but he was also being falsely accused.

“Ning, I’ve done everything I could. I really don’t know how they still ended up choosing you…” George rubbed the space between his eyebrows and said, “I heard from my father that after the final member selection, the assessment results will be made public. In other words, the final opinions of the twelve people, including Mr. Ronai, will be made public. Why don’t you wait a little longer? Judging by the time, it should be out soon.”

The selection of the thirteenth member involved a lot, so every step in the process was carefully and strictly done.

The announcement of the selection of the twelve members was also to ensure the greatest degree of fairness.

Each member had to be responsible for their own decision.

This was not a new rule. It was a rule that had existed since the establishment of the Bai City Fashion Association.

It was a rule, but it was also a warning.

Shen Li did not say anything.

That was because no matter what, the result would still not change.

George grabbed the last bit of his desire to survive and carefully advised, “That… actually, Ning, perhaps you could also change your train of thought! After becoming a member, your status will be greatly different from before! Although I know that you might not be very interested in these things, it will still be very beneficial for you to stand higher and hold more power in your hands. Don’t you think so?”

Upon hearing this, Shen Li’s red lips lifted into an extremely faint smile.

“George, do you understand the meaning of ‘life tenure’?”

George immediately became as quiet as a chicken.

He knew her too well.

She had always only done what she wanted to do, and there was no one who could force her to do anything she did not want to do.

Now that she was in this position, it meant that she would have to shoulder a lot of responsibilities and handle a lot of things.

The fact that she had very little patience meant that he was not really sure that she would not end up tearing down the Bai City Fashion Association’s headquarters in the future.

Just thinking about it gave him a headache!

He held up his phone respectfully while constantly refreshing the web page.

At a certain point, he finally saw an additional post added. He immediately shouted as if he had just drawn the last straw.

“It’s here! Ning! The results of all the members votes have been announced!”

As he shouted, he quickly opened it.

The names of the twelve members were neatly listed. Surprisingly, the one that was at the top was the president, Ronai.

His name was followed by another: Xie Jingyu.

When George saw this, he instantly became energized.

“Ronai! Mr. Ronai really didn’t choose you!”

Next was his father, Mr. Compton. His name was followed by another name: Zhan Tingting.

Both of these people were Chinese designers who were quite famous. George had seen their shows before, and they were indeed quite talented. They also had rich and wonderful resumes.

It was clear that the two of them had given a lot of thought into making their choice.

“My father didn’t choose you either!”

When George saw this, he almost burst into tears.

At this moment, he felt as if he had been cleared of any wrongdoing.

He continued to look down, but he suddenly stopped. Then, a deep shock flashed across his face.

Shen Li, who had been listening to him, suddenly stopped speaking. She frowned slightly.

“George?”

It took a lot of effort for George to pull himself together. He opened his mouth, but found that his throat had gone dry.

After a while, he finally opened his mouth.

“You… Why don’t you… see for yourself?”

Shen Li had a vague sense that something was wrong. Hearing George say that, she said “Got it” and ended the call.

George put down the phone, but his eyes remained glued to the computer screen.

After a long while, he took a deep breath and murmured softly, “This… It really wasn’t my fault…”

While Shen Li and George were talking on the phone, everyone around them was paying attention.

However, after listening for a long time, they still could not figure out what was going on.

While they were feeling completely bewildered, they saw Shen Li suddenly hang up the phone.

Many people began to look at each other. What? Was that the end of the call? Was she just going to let this matter go?

Shen Li lowered her head slightly and tapped on the screen with her fair-skinned fingers as if she was looking at something.

Yu Yu did not see the contents on her screen. Just as she was about to take a closer look, she heard a voice come from the crowd.

“The official website has updated the list of final choices of the twelve members!”

Yu Yu’s heart skipped a beat. She immediately understood what Shen Li was looking at.

She immediately took her phone out and entered the official website.

On the front page, the announcement that Shen Li had been selected as the thirteenth member was still on the top row.

It was so extremely glaring that she had to endure the discomfort in her heart before she could continue to read.

Next to it was a new update.

–The explanation of the results of the assessment of the thirteenth member.

She clicked on it without hesitation.

Ronai’s recommended candidate: Xie Jingyu (2 votes)

Compton: Zhan Tingting (1 vote)

Yu Yu was shocked. The two people who were most likely to vote for Shen Li had not voted for her?

She continued to read.

Craig: Yu Yu (1 vote)

Carter: Yu Yu (1 vote)

Edith: Yu Yu (1 vote)

These were the three people that she had fought hard to win over so she was not surprised.

She swiped down and suddenly froze.

Neatly, the same words followed the names of different people.

Bella: Shen Li (1 vote)

Kenny: Shen Li (1 vote)

Norbert: Shen Li (1 vote)

Joan: Shen Li (1 vote)

By this point, Shen Li had already obtained four votes of approval and was in first place.

However, it was more than that.

That was because the remaining three members had also chosen her!

Her name was repeated all the way to the last member!

Seven out of the twelve members had voted for her!
