"Orange, come back"
Xiu Mei's presentation was supposed to be of fifteen minutes, but even after an hour, no one was willing to let go of Orange. The delegates were overwhelmed by the exceptional qualities of Orange- the droid that they lost interest in anything else.
At last Xiu Mei had to step forward and call Orange back to continue with the presentation. The delegates who didn't get the chance opposed furiously, forcing Xiu Mei to promise that Orange is available for interaction after the closing ceremony to calm them down.
She picked the Orange, giving it to the old man sitting at Phoenix Enterprises table. Like a small kid that Orange is, the old man placed him on his lap and spoke softly to which Orange replied using emojis flashed in his eyes and with the special voice system in which Orange was speaking through computer and the old man was hearing his voice through wireless airpods without disturbing anyone else in the procedure.
"May I have your attention back to the presentation, please? I'm sure you didn't forget that there's another surprise left" Xiu Mei's voice once again resounded in the room, instantly attracting everyone's attention. She pointed at Feng Corporation's table, "The thing that's hidden under the white cloth is equally capable if compared to Orange. Although"
Before Xiu Mei could continue she heard Bai Xin's voice in the earplug attached to her ear. "XM, be prepared"
Xiu Mei smiled, "Although R-tech's intention with this product is the same as that of Orange, it won't be mass-produced and remain one and only. But we have planned to make its services available through a yearly membership. Our purpose to....."
However, before Xiu Mei could continue, a series of photographs appeared on the big LED screen behind her.
The delegates looked at those images in shock, their brows furrowed thinking about the purpose of showing these images. Some older men lowered their gaze from the screen and shook head in disappointment. Many looked at Xiu Mei with disgust.
In front of them were images of XM during the past two days of the summit where she was being shown with four men at different times and places. It was picturized in such a sense that it depicts that she has an immoral relationship with everyone while the reality was that photographs were deliberately clicked from such angles.
The delegates who have earlier seen her in the restaurant kissing Feng Jianyu and later Lu Xion's gentle attitude as he openly picked her up in his arms when she got injured yesterday, further raised the doubt. What about other men in the picture? Is it really true?
After the pictures, an audio recording started playing where she was demanding fifteen billion dollars from Kong Da to issue the statement that it was a misunderstanding. This further propels the delegates to believe that XM is a woman of questionable character and greedy.
Images can be ignored for once but how will she decline the audio recording. Her voice was crystal clear as she demands money from Kong Da.
Meanwhile, Feng Jianyu's face turned ugly as the pictures showed Wang Shi and his assistant Rong Xiang as well. The four men that appeared on screen were, Wang Shi, Rong Xiang, Qiao Ting and not so surprisingly Feng Jianyu himself.
The intimate pictures were created with others; however, it was all real with Feng Jianyu. Xiu Mie's picture with him was taken when they were blindly kissing each other in the corridor yesterday. However, the photographer seemed to be a novice as he only managed to take the photograph of Feng Jianyu's back.
Feng Junjie facepalmed, 'Damn these stupid people! We let them click pictures and yet they failed to capture my brother's face. I'm sure this is big bro's handiwork'
Feng Jianyu and Xiu Mei looked at each other and communicated with their eyes. He felt relaxed when she assured him by giving a smile.
Her attention diverted upon hearing a loud sound.
"What nonsense is this?" Mr. Qiao fumed in anger, rising up from his chair as it falls back, banged his walking stick on the floor and yelled. His son Qiao Ting instantly got up to support his father
In one of the pictures, it showed that his son was kissing XM right outside the hotel where they were staying. Mr. Qiao understood that someone was trying to slander XM but can't tolerate that a woman was questioned for her character and his innocent son was unnecessarily pulled into this.
Looking at enraged Mr. Qiao Xiu Mei got worried for his health. She instantly covered the distance between them and held her hands out to support him. Mr. Qiao looked at her apologetically, "I'm sorry. I should have not called you for dinner"
Xiu Mei's lips curled upwards into a charming smile. "Trust me! Everything is under control. Don't let your health be affected by these trivial matters" She calmly said.
Mr. Qiao analyzed her expression, her voice as soft as silk. Her bright eyes glowed like stars, crystal clear. They were pure and innocent but one could see the fire set in them to burn down enemies. When was the last time he had seen eyes like hers?
Once again she took over the stage with the same confidence and raised her chin up to face the audience. Hearing the countless whispers, she went ahead to shut their mouths first.
"I don't care what you people are thinking about me right now as we are strangers, you are practically nothing for me. Instead of whispering or looking at me questionably make sure you are standing at the highest grounds of morality. Make sure there is not a single speck of dirt on your character. Make sure you have not done anything wrong in your life. Make sure you are a saint" Xiu Mei gazed down at everyone, "Anyone who thinks that he/she has not done anything wrong in his life can raise their hand and I'll ask Orange to investigate all the dead skeletons in your cupboard"
A few lines from Xiu Mei and everybody lowered their heads in shame.
"Trying to act smart when your dirty deeds have unveiled in front of everyone" Kong Liu got up from her seat, walked to the stage giving slow claps to Xiu Mei.
