Chapter 103 Ready To Start
Simone had hacked a verified account under Gray Entertainment, known for its track record of leaking accurate information.
Around ninety percent of the leaks had proven true, earning “him” the moniker “leak king.”
It was widely rumored that “he” was a reliable source. As a result, his disclosures garnered significant credibility.
Naturally, the revelations predominantly involved artists from Gray Entertainment’s rival companies and other entities in the entertainment industry.
A year prior, this account had unveiled Fiona’s involvement in a scandal and supplied supporting evidence.
Simone, meticulously planning a counterattack to redeem her reputation, seized control of this account. By employing their own verified account to expose leaks and provide evidence, Gray Entertainment would find themselves silenced.
After all, their own cultivated account had turned against them. What could they do? They were probably just feeling the urge to go crazy.
Beyond commandeering this account, Simone hacked into the sock puppet company responsible for postings on Gray Entertainment’s behalf.
She uncovered incriminating evidence of their involvement in Fiona’s scandal, including transfer records and attempts to discredit her. She took a screenshot of these findings and promptly sent it to her email.
With these tasks accomplished, Simone returned to monitoring the live broadcast.
Gwen inquired, “Should we release the evidence now? The online situation is escalating. The sock puppets and the anti–fans are rallying for Fiona’s removal from the show and a halt to the recording.”
“Many people are still discussing her past in the live chat. They’re also pressuring Kelly.
“If this persists, can Kelly handle the pressure?” Simone glanced at the live broadcast, where. the group was on a mountain.
Fiona seemed isolated, with little interaction from other artists. Yet, she remained composed, free of self–doubt or embarrassment, radiating positivity and optimism.
Simone replied. “It’s not time yet. Let’s wait a litt fonger. Let Fiona change everyone’s perception through her own efforts. When those anti–fans become increasingly repulsive.
then we can strike.”
Upon hearing Simone’s words, Gwen thought about Fiona’s recent efforts and nodded. “You’re right. You’re the one who can handle this.”
Simone smiled. “After all, I’ve been in this industry for a long time.”
As they continued watching. Gary and his team displayed patience, ready to act on Simone’s command.
After a while, Kelly reached out to Simone, hoping for Simone to take action.
She persuaded them to resist the pressure. Not only did they permit Fiona to continue the live broadcast, but they also increased the number of shots.
The variety show’s theme was thrilling and challenging, which was aimed at pushing the limits.
Activities included bungee jumping, walking on a cliffside plank road, and crossing a glass bridge between two mountains.
A few days earlier, Kelly had warned the guests to be mentally prepared.
However, if they were genuinely unable to confront the challenge, no one would force them. Alternatively, it was acceptable if someone in the group completed the task.
Everyone first tackled the glass bridge, divided into groups of three.
Fiona and two other permanent guests–a male and a female–were grouped together.
The female guest among them was an artist from Gray Entertainment. Therefore, she targeted Fiona more, isolating her from her teammates.
While climbing the mountain, she “accidentally sprained her foot. Since she was wearing cropped pants, her visibly swollen ankle was on display.
She pretended to attempt to walk on the glass bridge. Then, she covered ber foot, claimed she had tried her best but couldn’t walk, and appeared emotionally distraught.
As for the other two groups of six, even those with a slight fear of heights endured their apprehension and persevered.
Fiona used to be afraid as well, but she had trained specifically for the past few days, so she
uccessfully crossed the bridge with the male guest, displaying a calm demeanor.
They den proceeded to the cliffside plank read
After overcoming their fears through various means of self–encouragement, the other two groups of six people cautiously crossed the road under the guidance of the team leader.
The male guest deliberately didn’t wait for Fiona and walked with the team leader first.
Fiona had long grown accustomed to such treatment, so she didn’t change her expression or feel unhappy. With the assistance of the staff, she secured the safety rope and followed suit.
Her performance in this situation won the favor of many audiences.
Her fans were even more heartbroken. Previously, Fiona never needed to care about the attitude of a second–tier artist, yet now she was treated so coldly by one.
However. Fiona indeed did not disappoint them; she was becoming stronger and stronger.
Finally, it was time for bungee jumping off the cliff.
This time, the other two groups of guests went first.
Upon standing on the bungee jumping platform and looking down, they backed down and didn’t have the courage to jump.
Almost everyone chose to give up because they couldn’t overcome their fear.
Even for those who weren’t afraid of heights, it was normal not to dare to jump off such a high cliff.
Out of the six people, only one male guest chose to give it a try. He was usually a fan of extreme sports, so he managed to do it successfully but still screamed in fear.
The male guest, who was in the same group as Fiona, attempted it on the stage but gave up because he was too scared to jump.
Now, only Fiona remained, so she took a deep breath and said, “I’ll give it a try.”
She walked up to the stage, closed her eyes, and reminisced about the events of the past year. She also recalled how Simone and Gwen had accompanied her to this cliff bungee jumping location, helping her overcome her fears and psychological barriers.
Because of their encouragement and companionship, she conquered her fears and took that Teap.
munte says, it doesn’t matter if others give up on me. What matters is that I should never give up on yar No matter how challenging the road ahead is, as long as I persist, everything will turn out fine,
Simone and Gwerr believed in her, warmed her heart, and supported her. She couldn’t let
Then she opened her eyes. She didn’t play the victim or feign fear. She neither crafted a persona of strength and bravery nor exerted effort to overcome the situation.
Instead, she smiled and jumped down.
After a scream, she shouted, “Fiona. keep going!”
This scene stunned the director and the other guests.
Even though Fiona had been mistreated, she didn’t give up and continued to embrace life with a smile. It was an indescribable sensation that defied words.
The audiences who were tuning into the live broadcast were deeply moved as well.
Many people expected Fiona to utter something like “Get lost, se“mbag!” or express her pitiful state. However, she surprised everyone. She simply whispered to herself to keep going, never give up, and face life with a smile.
Numerous audiences empathized with their own challenging situations.
For a moment, many couldn’t help but be touched. Some even welled up with tears, and countless fans of Fiona couldn’t help but shed a few themselves.
Fiona’s fans flooded the live chat with messages
Fiona, keep going!”
Fans of other artists and passersby couldn’t resist joining in.
Simone’s eyes gleamed with a smile. “I knew she had it in her.”
For those who worked hard, were sincere, and kind, life would never be a disappointment for them.
Even if Fiona was forced to leave the industry and find another job, Simone believed she could still maintain a positive and optimistic outlook.
She signed Fiona not only to humiliate Titus but also because she admired Fiona’s approach to life and work.
Ar that, she sent a message to the operations team. We can begin now.
