The reporter felt really aggrieved, too.
He did receive a big sum of remuneration, but those people also took the photos, no?
He was very steadfast for not selling those photos even when Huanyu offered a hefty sum, which was several times more than what she had offered him.
As for the confiscation of his camera and negatives, it was out of his control.
Being very supportive of Yun Shishi, the entertainment company would eliminate any unfavorable public opinion about her.
It was only after he could no longer bear the sufferings at the police station that he complied.
This was a typical case of suffering a double loss. The employer hung up the call in a fit of anger.
All these happened in the future, though.
Mu Yazhe fell into deep thought as he looked at the two photos. For the sake of caution in case they ended up being leaked, he ordered Min Yu to destroy the photos and negatives.
His assistant promptly acted according to his instructions.
"Boss, Li Dongliang is to be discharged from the hospital the day after; how do you intend to deal with him?"
"Keep an eye on him."
On the other side.
The Song residence.
Upon learning that the photos were seized by Huanyu, Song Enya threw her phone to the ground in exasperation as she sat fuming on the sofa. Seeing her angry look, her brother could not help teasing, "What's the matter? Who made my baby sister angry again?"
"Who else could it be?!"
"It's Yun Shishi again?" His face changed and he suddenly fell silent.
She snorted noncommittally.
Song Yunxi pondered for a moment. This time, though, he did not blindly stand on her side and lightly said, "Is it about Uncle Mu again? Enya, it's not that I want to nag at you, but you should give up on him."
"Why should I?! Big brother, why are you speaking up for an outsider?"
She stood up in agitation and glared at him while fuming.
Her older brother calmly explained, "I only want you to give up on Uncle Mu; I don't have the intention to help an outsider! Furthermore, you're my sister whom I dote on. How will I bear to see you bullied?"
The sister sulked. "I hate that woman to death! If I can, I really want to make her disappear from the face of the earth!"
Startled, he promptly covered her mouth and gave her a glare. "Are you crazy? Can these words be anyhow said? Dad and mom are in; you'll get in trouble if they hear this!"
"It's a fact," she stubbornly insisted. "Who asks her to pick a fight with me shamelessly for Brother Mu?"
"All you know is Brother Mu. I don't even know what's so good about him that makes you yearn for him day and night!" His words carried a hint of jealousy.
The sister answered depressingly, "Big brother, do you know? That woman is really a b*tch! Huanyu is so supportive of her, but she still shamelessly accompanies clients at dinner parties; isn't this a case of the unspoken rules?! The paparazzo managed to take secret snapshots of it, but they ended up being seized by Huanyu! She's only a small artiste; why does Brother Mu spoil her so much? It's clear that she betrayed him; doesn't he care at all?!"
The man raised a brow. "Things may not be what you see."
"What's it like, then?!" She snorted. "There's a saying that goes: 'Seeing things with your eyes is more reliable than what you hear'! The photos were taken clearly; can she still disclaim them?"
Rage gripped her heart at the mention of this.
