Jiang Yuning was not afraid of being the subject of the public&x2019;s rumors or criticism as she was already accustomed to taking the fall. However, Lu Jingzhi on the other hand was a fine and distinguished man. If he got into a relationship with her, wouldn&x2019;t she be hindering his future?
Lu Jingzhi let go of Jiang Yuning&x2019;s chin and whispered in her ear with a low voice that made her heart skip a beat. &x201C;That is not something that you should be worried about.&x201D;
She was not worried, but she was extremely curious.
She never had to worry about the Lu family.
&x201C;I just meant&x2014;&x201D; Jiang Yuning laughed and tried to brush it off. &x201C;I believe that you are very busy&x2026;&x201D;
She wanted to just get through the first night.
&x201C;Yes, I am very busy indeed but&x2014;&x201D; Lu Jingzhi said as he stared right into Jiang Yuning&x2019;s eyes. &x201C;I still have time for you.&x201D;
Jiang Yuning was completely caught off guard. She was not a match for an opponent like Lu Jingzhi indeed.
Fine, if it had to be tonight then so be it. She had already been in the entertainment industry for so many years. There had to be a way to deal with him.
In fact, Jiang Yuning was still hoping that she would have a stroke of luck. After all, Lu Jingzhi was such a cold and mysterious man, and therefore, he should have very high expectations. Surely, he would not force himself on her.
However, Jiang Yuning knew that she was finished as soon as she entered his villa because when she was standing at the entrance of the villa, he had already carried her up in his arms and brought her straight into the bedroom.
&x201C;Wait! Wait!&x201D; Jiang Yuning suddenly shouted as she put her hands around Lu Jingzhi&x2019;s neck and started stroking his throat gently. &x201C;Don&x2019;t you want me to take a shower first?&x201D;
Lu Jingzhi stare at the woman in his arms and he instantly knew that she was up to some sort of trick. He straightened his body and put her down and said, &x201C;Alright, go.&x201D;
Jiang Yuning held her clothes tightly together and then skipped to the bathroom. However, when she was about to close the bathroom door, she heard Lu Jingzhi&x2019;s low voice commanding, &x201C;You will shower while I watch.&x201D; Jiang Yuning gasped in shock and then quickly changed her mind. &x201C;Forget it, I don&x2019;t feel like showering anymore. Why don&x2019;t we light a candle for a more exciting atmosphere?&x201D;
Lu Jingzhi grabbed hold of Jiang Yuning&x2019;s wrist and looked her in the eye. &x201C;Do you really think that a man would let you go so easily just because you keep trying to delay it?&x201D;
Jiang Yuning watched as Lu Jingzhi slowly unbuttoned his shirt. She quickly put her arms around his neck without any hesitation and whispered in his ears, &x201C;I have always liked you.&x201D;
Lu Jingzhi was unfazed and he continued staring at her coldly.
&x201C;I have liked you since I was a child. I am serious. I am not lying to you. Therefore, I do not want us to start off so terribly.&x201D;
She liked him? Then why did she remain as Lu Zongye&x2019;s fianc&xE9;e for so many years?
Lu Jingzhi did not believe her words.
However, he still let go of her and immediately walked out of the bedroom without saying anything.
Jiang Yuning sat down on the bed and heaved a huge sigh of relief. She took a gamble and fortunately for her, Lu Jingzhi&x2019;s character was exactly the same as before. He was always doubtful about anything that came too easily to him.
After so many things have happened, she might end up being Lu Zongye&x2019;s sister-in-law. Things were starting to get interesting.
Early the next morning, Jiang Yuning woke up after spending the night on the huge gray bed. She did not see Lu Jingzhi anywhere in the room, but she saw a maid standing just outside the half-opened bedroom door.
&x201C;Miss Jiang, are you awake now?&x201D;
Jiang Yuning pushed the door wide open and she saw a thin middle-aged woman with dark skin and a smile on her face standing outside the bedroom.
&x201C;You can call me Sister Liang. Mr. Lu asked me to take care of you. He also asked me to pass this note to you.&x201D;
Jiang Yuning took the piece of paper and read the message on the note. &x201C;I will be back in three days. When I come home, I want to see evidence supporting your statement that you like me.&x201D;
That petty man. He did not believe anything that she said. &x201C;Miss Jiang, Mr. Lu has also left you a cell phone and he has already saved his number inside. Besides that, Mr. Lu has also prepared a driver for you.&x201D;
&x201C;Understood,&x201D; Jiang Yuning said as she took the cell phone from Sister Liang&x2019;s hand.
&x201C;In addition, Miss Jiang must be home before eleven every night. If you wish to go anywhere, you can always ask the driver to take you there. Your luggage and belongings have already been brought over here from your original residence. I have already arranged everything neatly for you in the walk-in closet that is in between your bedroom and Mr. Lu&x2019;s bedroom.&x201D;
What was her status now? She was Lu Jingzhi&x2019;s lover. She had to be obedient and fulfil whatever he had requested her to do.
Otherwise, how could she be worth his sixty million yuan?
&x201C;I am not going anywhere,&x201D; Jiang Yuning said.
Anyway, if she stayed at home, she could finally start plotting her revenge.
Five years ago, the Jiang family was still reputable and belonged among the other prestigious families. Jiang Yuning used to be the young lady of a prestigious family. The relationship between the Jiang family and the Lu family was good, and that was why their grandfather arranged for the marriage between the third young master of the Lu family, Lu Zongye and Jiang Yuning when they were both still very young.
For a short while, Lu Zongye was also interested in Jiang Yuning but he constantly tried to use his status as her fianc&xE9; to take advantage of her and get her to sleep with him. Jiang Yuning successfully escaped every time he tried something sleazy. Lu Zongye eventually grew tired of her conservativeness and began a few relationships with a few artistes from her entertainment company. He recently fell for one of the actresses from the same entertainment company and in an effort to get rid of Jiang Yuning, he colluded with Emperor Entertainment to start the scandal involving Jiang Yuning and the director who was married.
However, although Jiang Yuning looked pure and innocent on the outside, she could actually be as cunning as a fox.
The scandal and rumors surrounding her could only spread this much because she wanted it to happen.
She had deliberately allowed the scandal involving the director who was married to get this big so that she could pull out of the engagement with Lu Zongye that scumbag.
She knew that her reputation would take a big hit, but she also knew that no one was free from any scandal in the entertainment industry.
She had everything under her control, except for Lu Jingzhi. Whatever happened with him was purely accidental. She had not expected that.
At the vice-chairman of Emperor Entertainment&x2019;s office at ten in the morning.
The vice-chairman was having a meeting with his guests, that were none other than the third young master of the Lu family, Lu Zongye and his new girlfriend who was the famous actress, Huo Yuxi.
&x201C;CEO Lu, if there is anything that you need, you can just give me a call and I will get it done. You do not need to make a trip here personally,&x201D; The vice-chairman said respectfully to Lu Zongye.
&x201C;Jiang Yuning still owes you sixty million yuan. Did I get that right?&x201D; Lu Zongye was wearing a blue striped suit as he hugged Huo Yuxi who was sitting next to him on the sofa. Huo Yuxi had long, black hair, she was very beautiful and she was dressed very fashionably.
&x201C;Contact Jiang Yuning and tell her that as long as she agrees to spend the night with anyone that I appoint, then you will not pursue her for the sixty million yuan,&x201D; Lu Zongye said.
The vice-chairman was shocked when he heard what Lu Zongye had just said. &x201C;CEO Lu&x2014;Jiang Yuning is already at her lowest point in life. Do we really need to do this?&x201D;
&x201C;I want to get engaged with Yuxi soon. Therefore, I want to use Jiang Yuning&x2019;s scandal to divert all public attention away from our sudden engagement. After all, Yuxi is a famous actress and her reputation is very important. What is Jiang Yuning compared to her?&x201D; Lu Zongye said proudly.
&x201C;If that is the case, I will arrange for someone to contact her immediately.&x201D; The vice-chairman quickly promised.
Who asked Jiang Yuning to offend the young master of the Lu family?
Jiang Yuning was taking her afternoon nap on the balcony when she received a call from her former agent.
&x201C;Yuning, I have good news for you. The company has decided that you no longer need to pay them any damages for the breach of contract&x2014;&x201D; The agent pretended to sound excited even though he was utterly disgusted.
&x201C;Why would the company be so good? Are there any conditions attached to it?&x201D; Jiang Yuning also pretended to ask innocently.
&x201C;Well&x2014;there is a dark-skinned customer who had requested for you to spend the night with him. If you do that, the company will write off the sixty million yuan that you owe them. What do you think?&x201D;
&x2018;Wow. The company has really outdone itself this time.&x2019;
&x201C;Who is the one who had set me up again this time?&x201D;
&x201C;I will tell you the truth but you must not use it against me! Your former fianc&xE9; intends to get engaged with the famous actress, Huo Yuxi soon. Therefore, he intends to use your scandal as a shield to divert public attention away from their engagement.&x201D;
&x201C;Tell the vice chairman that he can spend the night with him all by himself if he wants to.&x201D; Jiang Yuning hung up immediately after she said that sentence.
Emperor Entertainment was already struggling to maintain its own business and yet they are still so busy getting involved in Lu Zongye&x2019;s personal issues.
