Rebirth Of The Godly Prodigal Chapter 68
Who, but Hong Dali, could say that at a moment like this?
Liu Mingxin turned around to look at him and smiled briefly. "So it's Young Master Dali. I heard Young Master Dali has always been weak. Do you feel better recently?" It might be obvious that both of them were not friends, but Liu Mingxin was clearly more magnanimous than his younger brother, Liu Mingcheng. Regardless of how they fought under the table, Liu Mingxin displayed the necessary etiquette towards Hong Dali.
"Thank you for your concern." Hong Dali sniffed. The nine lackeys followed behind him as he held Tang Muxin's hand and walked to Li Nianwei's side. Smiling, he said, "I guess I should not die within the next one or two years." As he spoke, he took the bouquet of flowers from Zhang Cai, threw Liu Mingxin's name card away, and beamed as he handed it to Li Nianwei. "Sister Nianwei, these flowers are pretty. You can have them."
Watching Hong Dali's actions, Liu Mingxin's pupils contracted.
Liu Mingxin's flowers were for Li Nianwei, but she didn't accept them, and just handed them over to her manager, Zhang Cai. All that trouble he took came to nothing. He felt terrible. However, there was nothing he could do since Hong Dali was younger, in addition to being thin and frail.
"Thank you, Young Master." Li Nianwei giggled and accepted the bouquet of roses from Hong Dali. "Young Master, it's windy outside. Let's talk inside." Her relationship with Hong Dali was not easily understood by outsiders. Only those within the team would know the reasons behind it.
Li Nianwei was a very smart lady. She knew what she had to do when she saw Liu Mingxin. Liu Mingxin's was undeniably desirable. He was handsome, poised, rich, and came from a good background. He was the perfect lover of every woman, the prince among princes. But Li Nianwei knew, in terms of importance, ten Liu Mingxins could not be compared to one Hong Dali.
There was no hate for no reason in this world, neither was there love without reason. From the moment both met, Hong Dali had treated Li Nianwei like his elder sister. And Li Nianwei willingly protected the weak and frail Hong Dali like a little brother.
The love between siblings, though simple, was strong.
Li Nianwei knew how serious the consequences would be if she left him. Hence, she rejected Liu Mingxin decisively without hesitation.
The reporters did not hesitate when they saw Li Nianwei accepting the roses from Hong Dali. The flashlights from the cameras were comparable to the lightning on a stormy night. At almost ten flashes per second, everything around was lit up. They hadn't come for nothing. This piece of news was sure to hit the headlines without a doubt.
The surrounding fans went crazy! They did not know how to react faced with a scene like this. A goddess like Li Nianwei accepting roses from a man. This was big news. Though those two did not seem like a couple, that made them very excited. But in the end, they could only turn their excitement to screams for Li Nianwei. "Weiwei, I love you!" "Weiwei, good job!" "That's my goddess, you did well!"
Facing these fanatical fans, Li Nianwei smiled and bowed gracefully. "Thank you for your concern. Thank you."
"Nianwei." Liu Mingxin should have left feeling defeated, but he did not show any unhappiness. He asked, "You and Young Master Dali are not lovers, right?"
In an instant, the surroundings became quiet. He was not the only curious one. Everyone was waiting for Li Nianwei's answer.
Li Nianwei prepared to speak but did not know how to respond to that question. If she said yes, it would be a lie. If she said no, that would let Liu Mingxin think that he still stood a chance. While she hesitated, Tang Muxin responded, "What has their relationship got to do with you? It's none of your business!"
It was clear that Tang Muxin was on Hong Dali's side. She did not mince her words. The decision was to fight together against others, everything else could be discussed later.
Hearing Tang Muxin, Liu Mingxin broke into a smile. "Um, I understand. That means I still stand a chance."
"No, there are no chances for you." Hong Dali turned out his pockets and found nothing. Finally, he took out a shiny dollar coin from Tang Muxin's pocket and placed on his palm. He stretched out his hand toward Li Nianwei, smiling. "Sister Nianwei, shall I provide for you in the future?" He sniffed. "I'm poor, I only have a dollar left…"
In front of everyone, and through the lens of the reporters' cameras, Li Nianwei gently stretched out her hand and took the one dollar coin. She smiled and said, "Okay."
Today's plan was a complete failure, but Liu Mingxin did not feel one bit defeated. Instead, he got excited and looked at Hong Dali. "Haha, I admit my loss. I underestimated you. Um. In that case, I shall not bother you further. We shall meet again soon."
He bowed gracefully at Li Nianwei before he turned to board his car, leaving at his own pace.
This old man is not easy to handle. Watching Liu Mingxin's car disappear in the horizon, Hong Dali ruffled his hair. "He's elegant, eligible, and shrewd too. Dealing with an opponent like that is hard. The brothers are born to the same parents, but why are they so different?"
The world went mad.
Within half an hour, the number of searches on Sangle soared by 5%. The new age keyword was "one dollar." In two hours, there were 134,156,715 searches. The entire internet was discussing the mystery young master who wanted to provide for Li Nianwei with one dollar. Naturally, as someone who was not within the entertainment circle, Hong Dali's faced was blurred out.
To provide for someone with just one dollar, the impact of this news was divided into three extremities.
The first view was how Li Nianwei was indeed the new age goddess. Her response to a gentleman's expression of love was elegant. Although she had rejected him, the way she rejected was ingenious. Especially the one dollar. Who would think that Li Nianwei would accept the proposal of being provided for with just one dollar? And she actually agreed on the spot. In an instant, she had become Master Hong Dali's mistress. That was hard for anyone not to back off.
The second view was that, although Hong Dali only gave Li Nianwei one dollar, what Li Nianwei was after was Hong Dali's entire fortune. But most people did not agree with this. In all aspects, Liu Mingxin was clearly better than Hong Dali. One was a prince, and the other was a squanderer. There was nothing else that needed to be compared.
The third view was that Li Nianwei had taken this opportunity to indirectly reject all pursuers and concentrate on her career. She had handled the situation so well with Liu Mingxin. Many fans concluded that not only was Li Nianwei a goddess, but she was also the goddess of wisdom.
Of course, no matter what anyone said, the common understanding was that Li Nianwei's worth had risen once again.
"Liu Mingxin came in time, creating publicity for Sister Nianwei for free. He must be the reincarnation of the money god." Hong Dali propped the pillow against Li Nianwei's thigh and adjusted himself so it was comfortable. "Let's rest for a while. Later on, we will start filming Unexpectedly! "
