&x201C;Are you insane? I know that you have always liked him, but no matter what, he is still the brother of your former fianc&xE9;. Don&x2019;t we have plans to deal with the Lu family soon? He would not be really good to you,&x201D; Ku Jie said angrily over the phone. &x201C;You barely got out of the lion&x2019;s den alive, and now you want to enter the tiger&x2019;s den?&x201D;
She must really be insane. Otherwise, why would she go and provoke Lu Jingzhi?
&x201C;I know but I really can&x2019;t stay away from him, brother. So, just let me be for once okay?&x201D;
Ku Jie could not accept this, but he knew that he would not be able to stop her.
He understood Jiang Yuning&x2019;s temper very well. Once she had decided on doing something, there was no way anyone would be able to stop her.
What was there to like about the Lu family?
Lu Zongye was a bastard who would humiliate and set up a trap to frame his own fianc&xE9;e in an attempt to annul their engagement.
And now, his sister had chosen to get involved with Lu Jingzhi. Everyone in Luo City knew how scary Lu Jingzhi was. His sister had delivered herself up to his doorstep, so Ku Jie was absolutely certain that Lu Jingzhi would definitely take advantage of her.
It was in the middle of the night when a black car was cruising on the highway. Lu Jingzhi was on his way back to the Lu family mansion.
&x201C;Principal, this is the information that you have asked me to investigate and obtain for you.&x201D; The secretary sitting beside Lu Jingzhi handed a set of documents over to him.
&x201C;There seems to be an unusual relationship between Ku Jie and Miss Jiang. However, the both of them have been very cautious and careful, therefore, it is very difficult to run a background check on them.&x201D;
Lu Jingzhi took the documents over from the secretary and flipped through a few pages. He suddenly stopped and said, &x201C;Make a U-turn now. I want to head to the villa instead.&x201D;
&x201C;Alright, then.&x201D; The secretary quickly signaled the driver to turn the car around.
Other people might not know it, but the secretary understood the principal very well. The principal was extremely possessive. He rarely showed any interest in anything or anyone but once he showed any interest in something&x2014;he had to obtain a hundred and one percent of that particular item. He was not a sharing type of person. He did not like his possessions to be contaminated or impure.
Therefore, the secretary decided that he had better inform Miss Jiang about this trait of the principal the next time he had a chance to.
Jiang Yuning would never have imagined that her god-like idol would be jealous just because of her close relationship with Ku Jie. Lu Jingzhi arrived at the villa in just thirty minutes and he immediately stood before Jiang Yuning as soon as he arrived.
Jiang Yuning stared at the handsome man who was dressed in a blue suit and was just about to ask why he had come back in advance when he grabbed her wrists and pushed her down on the sofa before forcing a kiss on her.
Jiang Yuning did not understand what was happening and why he was acting this way. Her wrists were hurting because he was gripping it so tightly and she could feel her lips hurting too. However, she did not have the strength to push him away.
Lu Jingzhi finally recovered his senses when he heard her shouting. He lifted his head and slowly wiped the lipstick stain that was smeared on the side of Jiang Yuning&x2019;s lips with his long fingers.
&x201C;You said that you liked me?&x201D; Lu Jingzhi asked. His voice was hoarse and carried a tinge of sarcasm in it.
&x201C;Yes.&x201D; Jiang Yuning answered as she nodded her head. She then quickly shook her head and said, &x201C;You scared me a little by your actions just now, so maybe I like you a little lesser right now.&x201D;
She did not know if it was because of the coolness of the sea breeze, or whether it was because of Lu Jingzhi&x2019;s coldness, but when Jiang Yuning spoke that sentence, she felt as though she was about to be frozen to death because of the coldness in Lu Jingzhi&x2019;s eyes.
&x201C;You are able to change your opinion on how much you liked someone so easily?&x201D;
Jiang Yuning stared at the handsome man standing before her and she felt as though she was drooling at this perfect image. However, when she saw the expression on his face, Jiang Yuning knew that she had to remain calm and play it cool.
&x201C;Brother, after that brief moment just now, I have decided that I like you a little less at this moment. I can still decide this, right?&x201D; Lu Jingzhi released his grip on her wrists and then lifted her chin with his hand. &x201C;I must say, you really do have some survival instinct in you.&x201D; After speaking, Lu Jingzhi reached out a hand and helped Jiang Yuning up from the sofa.
He had reminded himself countless times not to believe what she says, but he could not help but feel happy when he heard her confessing that she liked him.
Jiang Yuning held onto her wrists that were hurting. How much strength did this man use?
&x201C;So, tell me. Why are you angry?&x201D;
&x201C;No, I am not. Go to bed earlier,&x201D; Lu Jingzhi said before heading towards the gate with no expression on his face.
&x201C;You are leaving already?&x201D; Jiang Yuning was feeling extremely confused. Did this man come all the way here just to kiss her and leave again?
&x201C;I am going back to the Lu family mansion. Don&x2019;t forget about the homework that I have left for you to complete,&x201D; Lu Jingzhi said coldly as he walked out of the villa with his secretary by his side.
Jiang Yuning thought long and hard, but she still could not figure out why Lu Jingzhi was angry.
Forget it. Emperor Entertainment had fallen today. She was going to have a good sleep tonight because of this.
She was going to be busy tomorrow because she still has to deal with the scumbags and bitches from Emperor Entertainment.
It was drizzling late at night in the early spring. The houses built on the hills looked like it was covered in fog when it rained.
This was the kind of atmosphere that Lu Zongye liked and therefore, he was always lazing in the living room. He especially liked making love with Huo Yuxi there because the floor and ceiling were covered with mirrors and glass, and this was the kind of excitement and temptation that no men could ever resist.
After taking a shower, the both of them sat down in the living room
Huo Yuxi leaned against Lu Zongye&x2019;s chest and said in her sweet and charming voice, &x201C;We are about to get engaged but now Emperor Entertainment is in trouble. Therefore, I don&x2019;t think they will be able to help us do what we had requested. Zongye, I don&x2019;t care. You promised me that you will make sure that this does not hurt my reputation. You have just annulled your engagement with Jiang Yuning one week ago, so how could we get engaged now?&x201D;
Lu Zongye stroked Huo Yuxi&x2019;s smooth and fair cheek lightly and then said, &x201C;You don&x2019;t have to worry about it. I will invite Jiang Yuning out tomorrow and offer her some benefits so that she will cooperate with us.&x201D;
&x201C;Alright then. You said it so don&x2019;t lie to me. If it is possible, you have to make sure that the public hates her more so that we can get engaged without the public scrutinizing us.&x201D;
&x201C;In order to be with you and marry you, I have already humiliated and destroyed Jiang Yuning in the worst possible ways. Do you still not trust me? How about I drag Jiang Yuning here in front of you tomorrow?&x201D;
&x201C;Alright then! But I am not trying to bully her, I am just doing this for our marriage!&x201D; Huo Yuxi said as she hugged Lu Zongye tightly.
&x201C;So&x2014;what if you are bullying her? I allow it!&x201D; Lu Zongye replied and quickly turned off the table lamp that was next to the sofa.
You allow it? You said that you allow it? Did you ask Second Young Master Lu first?
Jiang Yuning slept very well that night but she was not sure whether it was because the bed smelled like Lu Jingzhi.
In fact, there were many bedrooms on the upper and lower floors of the villa. If Jiang Yuning was really afraid that Lu Jingzhi would do anything to her, she could have slept in any of the other bedrooms. She could have just stayed far away from the master bedroom.
However, Jiang Yuning was not afraid at all. She was rolling around the bed in the master bedroom and she even wore one of Lu Jingzhi&x2019;s shirt as her pajamas.
She did not even dare to think about it before, but now she was doing everything that would provoke Lu Jingzhi.
However, before she truly understood Lu Jingzhi&x2019;s true intentions, she would have to work hard to defend and protect herself. After all, she was not a casual and easy person.
Initially, Jiang Yuning intended to sleep in and wake up later to continue her game with Emperor Entertainment and its artistes. However, she received a call from an agent of Zhen Yang Media inviting her to join them as one of their artistes early in the morning.
The person on the other side of the call offered her a very good contract and even offered to clear her reputation for her.
However, Jiang Yuning felt that the name Zhen Yang Media was very familiar and therefore, she decided to call Ku Jie to confirm it. After explaining it to Ku Jie, he suddenly sneered out loud and said, &x201C;Are you telling me that the company belonging to that scumbag, Lu Zongye, intends to sign you as one of their artistes?&x201D;
