Please do not drag me into the water and write fake story. It can result in grave matter and is bad if affects other. (Worry about rumours?) Should not be and I am clueless about her relationship now. (Gives a sense of security to Jacqueline Wong (黃心穎)?) What security? (Forgotten about Jacqueline?) Please refrain from dragging me into the water."
