MAIR – Chapter 130 – 《National Idol》

According to the doctor, Xia Shiyu’s condition was very dangerous. It was a miracle that they were able to rescue her.

Now she was still lying in the intensive care unit, wearing a ventilator, pale, thin and out of shape. The doctor said that she had taken too many sleeping pills. Although most of the contents of her stomach had been pumped out, it still had an impact after all, so she had not yet regained consciousness.

Shen Huai looked at her through the glass with some worry.

At this moment, the policeman came with a box of things in his arms. These were some personal belongings taken away by the police officer from Xia Shiyu’s room for the investigation. Now that the investigation was over, they wanted to return them to Xia Shiyu’s room. However, considering that her door had been damaged and had not been fixed so quickly, the police officer took the things to the hospital.

When he saw Shen Huai, he was surprised. “Mr. Shen, you are still here!”

Shen Huai nodded and reached out to take something from him.

“Thank you, thank you.” The policeman put the things on the chair on the side. “Please take a look at them for me. I’ll go to the nurses’ station and ask which ward the little girl will be transferred to.”

Shen Huai agreed and the police officer then hurriedly walked away.

Shen Huai was about to sit down and have a rest for a moment, when he suddenly heard a “bang”. It turned out that a diary had not been placed steadily and had fallen to the ground.

Shen Huai picked up the book but unexpectedly the pages were loose. As soon as he picked it up, all the pages inside fell out.

Shen Huai squatted down to pick up the papers, but accidentally saw their content. His expression immediately became dignified, and he looked at the content more carefully.

It was written by Xia Shiyu when she was ill. The handwriting in the book was very scrawled, but the content was shocking.

It turned out that the reason why she encountered all this was Huayue playing tricks behind her back. Because Xia Shiyu refused to compromise, An Yuanjie bribed her agency and canceled all her activities.

Xia Shiyu had just made her debut and didn’t have much savings. She had been struggling to support herself. Now that she was besmirched with black rumors, she could no longer make money by singing under the overpass as before, so she wanted to write songs and sell them for money. Who would have known that the other side wouldn’t even say a few words to her before he started acting, prepared to take pictures in advance, which later became the evidence that she was “fostered”.

The agency took this opportunity to terminate her contract. Later, An Yuanjie’s assistant couldn’t watch it anymore and secretly called her to tell her the truth.

Xia Shiyu completely collapsed. She bought a train ticket at the spur of the moment and left Zhongjing City. After that, she lived here for several years. Because she suffered from severe depression, she couldn’t find a stable job and could only live by doing odd jobs. Her original bright life was completely destroyed by Huayue.

After reading this, Shen Huai’s mood was very heavy.

He was not a little white rabbit who knew nothing about the world. His financial circle was not a pure and noble place. He had heard a lot of dark things, and framing designs emerged one after another, but most people still had a bottom line.

Huayue had not only overturned black and white, but also driven people away like this, which was a bit too low.

Nowadays, the current situation of domestic music becoming like this was caused mainly by Huayue, which simply became the cancer of the industry.

Shen Huai’s determination to destroy Huayue increased once again.

He sighed, looked back and remembered that his phone was still on silent mode. When he took it out, he noticed that there were seven or eight missed calls, all of which from Ye Cang.

Shen Huai hesitated for a moment, but still called Ye Cang.

Ye Cang’s mobile phone seemed to be in his hand all this time, and the call was connected immediately. “Are you alright?” he asked anxiously. “You didn’t answer your cell phone all this time… “

“Sorry,” Shen Huai said softly. “My cell phone was muted and I didn’t notice it.”

Ye Cang heard that something was wrong in his voice, and quickly asked, “What’s the matter with you? What happened?”

Shen Huai looked calm and rational in front of others, but in front of Ye Cang, he suddenly didn’t want to keep up the pretence. He sighed for a long time, his voice very tired.

He told Ye Cang about Xia Shiyu.

Ye Cang didn’t speak for a while, but Shen Huai could hear him exhale heavily.

Shen Huai knew that this matter was very painful for his heart, not to mention that Ye Cang had been trying to promote the future generations of musicians and improve the domestic music environment.

He swore a dirty word and then asked, “So what’s the situation now?”

Shen Huai paused before telling Ye Cang about Tang Wanjun’s soul in Xia Shiyu’s body.

Ye Cang: “…”

Shen Huai pressed his forehead. “She is still in a coma. The doctor said that she may wake up tomorrow or the day after tomorrow.”

Ye Cang didn’t know what to say, so he asked, “Then, how many days will you stay there?”

“Hmm,” Shen Huai muttered and then said, “Ask Tong Yun to prepare some girls’ clothes and supplies and send them to me, and then find an aunt to ask her to clean the house where Wanjun lived before.”

Ye Cang agreed and heard that Shen Huai’s voice seemed to be somewhat low, so he deliberately joked, “If you let auntie prepare fat intestines and send them to you, she may be more willing to wake up soon.”

Shen Huai was amused by him, and his heavy mood became much more relaxed.

After hanging up the phone, he looked out of the window. It was already dark, but there was no moon in the dark night sky. Only the stars flashed reluctantly, using their tiny light to dispel the darkness around him.

Shen Huai’s heart slowly calmed down.

No matter how dark the night sky was, it would eventually usher in the dawn.



Xia Shiyu slept for two days before waking up.

After she was transferred from the intensive care unit, Shen Huai especially paid extra to move her to a private ward. The doctor had come to see her before and said that she had frequent eye movement and was about to wake up.

So Shen Huai went out to deal with something. When he came back, he saw her sitting on the hospital bed already skillfully turning on the TV and eating fruit, while greeting Shen Huai, “Hello again!”

Shen Huai: “…”

Tang Wanjun’s acceptance speed was very fast. She said to Shen Huai angrily, “Huayue is such a garbage company! I must make them pay for what they’ve done!”

Shen Huai watched her waving her thin arm. Worried that she would break it if she waved too hard, he could only appease her by saying, “Yes, you have a good rest first, I’ll call the doctor.”

Tang Wanjun, no, it was time to start calling her Xia Shiyu. Although she lay obediently in bed under Shen Huai’s arrangement, her mouth couldn’t stop, “Let’s discuss a revenge plan!”

Shen Huai: “…”

He refused ruthlessly. “No, you have a good rest first.”

Xia Shiyu wanted to say something else but the doctor came in, so she could only reluctantly close her mouth gloomily.

The doctor gave her a series of physical examinations and was very pleased. “It seems that she has recovered well, but we still need to pay attention over the next period of time and not let her eat spicy or greasy food. It would be better to let her eat liquid food for some time first.”

Shen Huai nodded and kept it in mind.

On the other side, Xia Shiyu seemed to have been struck by lightning. “Eat liquid food?!”

The doctor also knew that she had severe depression and a loss of appetite, so she must not want to eat anything after she just woke up, so she said in a very gentle voice, “Your body is still very weak, you can’t rely on intravenous drips all the time. You should eat something to nourish your stomach, even if you don’t want to eat…”

“It’s not that I don’t want to eat!” Xia Shiyu hurriedly said. “I have a good appetite! I want to eat roast duck, goose, fat intestines and ribs!”

Doctor: “???”

Shen Huai pressed his throbbing forehead and stood in front of her, calmly saying, “The patient has appetite, which proves that her condition has improved, right?”

Doctor: “Ah… Ah! Should… I think so.”

After sending away the confused doctor, Shen Huai sighed helplessly. He felt that Tang Wanjun was more difficult to deal with after her rebirth than before it.

After calming her down for a while, Shen Huai sat down next to the hospital bed again and said, “During this period of time, you should listen to the doctors’ advice and have a good rest. When your health is stable, I will take you back to Zhongjing.”

Xia Shiyu was lying in the bed with a disheartened face. “Can I eat fat intestines when we go back?”

Shen Huai: “…”

In the face of the longing Xia Shiyu, he sighed again. “Yes.”

Xia Shiyu: “(* ^ ▽ ^ *)” 

After solving the problem with the fat intestines, Xia Shiyu finally became serious. “What are you going to do after you go back?”

Shen Huai looked at the diary on the table, his eyes cold. “Xia Shiyu was framed from the beginning. I should still be able to find evidence. Even if she is gone, she should have her name cleared.”

“And Huayu should pay a price for these things!”

Xia Shiyu clapped. “Brother Shen is so handsome!” Then she held her face and asked, “What about me? What am I going to do?”

Shen Huai hesitated for a moment. “You should take care of your body first.”

“How can I do that?!” Xia Shiyu said without hesitation, “This little girl still has an unfulfilled dream!! I want to help her achieve it!”

Shen Huai frowned and said, “You don’t understand how terrible cyber violence is. Before the truth is revealed, you will be scolded as soon as you appear in public and you may not be able to bear it.”

However, hearing him say this, Xia Shiyu’s face showed a smile. “I know that. I have felt the same experience in her memory. Although she failed in the end, she never gave in. Since I inherited her body, I will inherit it together with this unyielding.”

After a moment of silence, Shen Huai said, “In this case, I’ll find a producer for you to make an album for you.”

“It takes so long to make an album! Maybe by the time the album is ready, Huayue would have already been beaten down by you.” Xia Shiyu shook her head. “I want to make some achievements and hit them in the face with my own hands!”

Shen Huai was helpless. “Then what do you want to do?”

Xia Shiyu frowned and pondered over it.

Just at this moment, an advertisement popped up on the TV.

“The first all girls’ talent show. ‘National Idol’! 100 little sisters with dreams and love are waiting for you. On November 5, Beijing Satellite TV and Tomato Network are broadcasting at the same time. Pick your favorite little sister!”

Xia Shiyu’s eyes lit up. “How about this?”

Shen Huai: “…”

He suddenly remembered something. At the beginning, Zhang Li, the producer of “Star of Tomorrow”, put forward the proposition that she was making a girls’ group talent show. She also said that she would like to invite Ye Cang as a judge and even made a generous offer, saying that if he had a suitable artist, she could enter the show without an interview.

However, Shen Huai didn’t have a suitable female singer and dancer at that time, so they had put the matter aside for the time being.

But now…

Producer Zhang, who was interviewing a trainee, suddenly sneezed three times in a row.
