Immediately afterward, the girls dropped their heads as if they had committed a big crime.
“I’m so sorry… We failed to recognize you just now, so we thought you guys were Sasaeng fans. Our arrogance blinded us,” the blonde girl muttered. Though her idol was right next to her, she did not dare to look into Josh’s eyes at all.
“It’s okay. You were trying to defend your idol because you love him, right? We understand that,” Xyla consoled her.
“However, there’s one thing I don’t quite understand. Is there a Sasaeng fan as old as me?” Sharon grinned mischievously.
“Old? You look like you’re in your late thirties, aren’t you? Brother Josh does have plenty of Sasaeng fans around this age… I can’t imagine you’re actually Brother Josh’s mother… You don’t look like it at all.”
The more the blonde girl explained, the more embarrassed she felt. Nevertheless, Sharon was delighted with her answer. She caressed her cheeks satisfactorily. “You’re so sweet.”
“We shall leave for home, goodbye…” The blonde girl and her friends waved at them before running straight to the exit.
“Let’s go… I’ll take you guys to the backstage. Which reminds me, where’s my Dad?” Josh looked around the stadium subconsciously.
Speaking of the devil, Wilson Batton was walking over to them now. After Wilson joined them, Josh took the four of them backstage.
Meanwhile, the blonde girl and the rest of the fans ran out of breath as soon as they darted out of the stadium. They stopped dead in the comfortably cool outside air and panted heavily.
After a while, they started to look at each other. Without warning, all of them exploded…
“We were standing so close to Brother Josh just now! I’d never been this near to him!”
“Brother Josh’s mother and sister are so pretty!!! By the way, is Xyla Quest very close with his mother and sister? I’m so jealous!!!”
“I think Xyla Quest is really nice. No wonder Josh wants to be friends with her. She didn’t even get angry with us just now!”
“Ahhh… You’re right! Miss Xyla is just like an angel from heaven! Everything about her makes me jealous!”
“Our Brother Josh is good-tempered too. Moreover, his face is perfect. I can’t even see his pores when I’m standing right next to him!!!”
The excitement in their tones only amplified with each word they spoke.
After Xyla and the others followed Josh backstage, Josh returned to the sofa where the journalists interviewed Georgie Clementine. On the other hand, Xyla led Sharon, Wilson, and Catherine to a coffee table in the corner of the room, so they could have some fruits while watching Josh’s interview session.
After the interview had ended, Josh did not forget to solemnly escort the journalists before returning to his family with Georgie.
Georgie greeted Josh’s parents politely and shook hands with them one by one. After shaking hands with Georgie, Wilson looked at Josh, sincerely and said, “Tonight’s concert was great. You’re excellent…”
Following that statement, he coughed a few times in embarrassment.
Josh was emotional, hearing his father’s compliment. “Thanks, Dad!”
Though his father’s comments were simply two short sentences, they meant a lot to Josh. He finally received the recognition that he deserved.
“Alright… I guess everyone’s hungry now. Let’s have some supper.” Wilson quickly changed the subject and scurried off.
Xyla, Josh, Catherine, Sharon, and Georgie exchanged looks of glee before catching up with Wilson and leaving the dressing room. When they reached the exit, Georgie bid a brief farewell to everyone and drove off on her own. Xyla and her family then went to a nearby five-star hotel to have supper. They had ordered a large table of food to celebrate Josh’s accomplishment. Everyone was in a jolly mood indeed.
While enjoying the meal, Xyla tapped to open the trending news and took a look at it.
As expected, #Josh Barton’s concert# was now on the top of the trending list. What she did not expect was that her name had also popped out on the trending list.
