Chapter 89 Just Trust Me

When I was puzzled, the phone that I had tossed aside rang again.

Shannon quickly grabbed my phone and exclaimed, “Ah, Nicholas! It’s Nicholas!”

I angrily snatched my phone from her hand. This girl goes crazy every time she sees Nicholas’ name.

It was obvious as to why he called.

Jeez. This is really Murphy’s law. And everything happens so rapidly.

Nicholas. Oh, Nicholas. I sullied the reputation that you’ve maintained for years. I’m such a sinner.

“Liliana, are you all right?”

His concerns for me made me feel even more remorseful.

“I’m okay. Nicholas, I’m sorry for causing such rumors.” I felt uneasy.

“Haha.” Nicholas wasn’t worried one bit. Instead, he laughed. “No pressure. It’s an opportunity to promote the new drama. Besides, it’s not bad press.”

I didn’t know how to react. With him and Scarlett being part of the drama, there was no need to rely on these rumors to attract attention, not to mention, The Wind And Cloud already had enough publicity.

Therefore, I treated those words as sympathy from him.

“I’m serious. You’ve been famous for many years and were never involved in any scandal. But because of me… Nicholas, if you need me to clarify, I will not refuse.”

“It’s not as bad as you think. Rest early. I’ll see you tomorrow.” Nicholas sounded calm and composed.

“Okay.” I opened my mouth and wanted to say more, but I agreed in the end.

“Liliana,” When I was about to hang up the phone, Nicholas called out my name again.

“What?”

“Just trust me. Good night.”

This time, Nicholas hung up the phone for real. I remained puzzled with my face flushed and my heart beating uncontrollably.

This scenario and conversation. It’s like being in a TV series.

“Liliana, what did Nicholas say?” Shannon nudged me, trying to be nosy.

“it’s nothing. He just told me not to worry about it.”

I tried to brush her off then reached for the tablet and scrolled to the bottom of the comments section.

All sorts of insults were hurled at me. It was also my first time seeing such a rich vocabulary of profanity. What an experience!

To sum it up, I only had one thing in my mind. I’d better know my place and not leap for the moon, lest I get struck down.

I put the tablet on my blanket and planted my head in my pillow. This is injustice. I’ve been wronged!

There was one thing that I didn’t understand. Nicholas had many fans and he was considered a national treasure. I could accept it if everyone insulted me because of him. But why were there many people defending Dominic as well? He was just a designer with a bit of money. How could he weigh up to Nicholas?

And why did the person despicable enough to spread the rumor leave out Camille instead of covering the entire story? If she were in it, I would not be in such a tight spot.

While I was thinking about Camille, I remembered the inexplicable phone calls from Dominic. He couldn’t have called me just because of what he saw on Twitter, could he?

If that was the case, then I’m finished. What have I said to him? Dinner with a handsome guy? Talking about our ideals in life?


This is frustrating… I covered my head with the pillow, feeling very depressed.

My phone rang again. Not expecting a reporter to be calling me, I was bombarded with a series of questions as soon as I answered the call. I almost passed out and hurriedly hung up the phone.

Unfortunately, that was only the beginning. My phone continued to ring since then without stopping. It was about to explode.

They were all unknown numbers. As soon as I disconnected one call, another one came in. In the end, I was forced to shut off my phone.

I was terrified. The news was trending only a few moments ago and so many people had already found out about my phone number.

I could not help but worry about my parents and Lou. They might be harassed, too!

I used Shannon’s phone to call my family. Fortunately, nothing was out of the ordinary.

I did not sleep well that night. I kept having the sensation that my phone was ringing and I was about to feel sick.

I was still restless after waking up in the morning.

I sat on the bed and logged onto Twitter on the tablet while I waited for Shannon.

Yesterday’s headline was still there. It now had more than ten million retweets and the comments section was still on fire.

I could not do anything else other than let out a long sigh.

I was afraid to turn on my phone. I was traumatized by being bombarded with those annoying phone calls but I also wanted to contact Nicholas and tell him not to pick me up.

If he comes over now and gets photographed again, it will definitely add more fuel to the fire.

“Liliana, Nicholas said he has already entered the elevator. Go open the door.” Shannon stuck her head out of the bathroom and yelled.

“What? You mean Nicholas is already here?” I shockingly looked up toward the bathroom door.

“Yes. He sent me a WhatsApp message. He said your phone was off. Go open the door. I’ll be ready soon.” Shannon’s voice echoed through the bathroom.

At this point, what else could I say?

I dragged my feet to open the door, only to see Nicholas standing outside.

“Why are you here so early? I wanted to tell you not to come.” I moved aside to let him into the room and closed the door.

Nicholas smiled and said, “If I didn’t come, I’m afraid you won’t even be able to get out of the hotel today.”

Initially, I did not understand what he meant. Suddenly, I had a thought and asked him faint-heartedly, “Are there any reporters out there?”

He answered by calmly nodding with a smile.

I immediately burst into tears. With so many reporters around, he must have been photographed entering the hotel!

I still remember the words that netizens used to curse me in the comments section. Am I about to die a miserable death?

Nicholas seemed to have read my mind. He poked my head and said, “Don’t worry. I came in through the VIP entrance. Nobody saw me.”

However, something felt off. “Nicholas, I think you should leave. Shannon and I can drive over later.”

“Liliana, I told you that you just need to trust me.” Nicholas held my shoulder and we looked at each other in the eyes.

At that moment, Shannon was coming out of the bathroom. Simultaneously, there was a knock on the door again.
