Jiang Yuning subsequently made a phone call to Ku Jie. &x201C;Brother, we can begin our plan now.&x201D;
&x201C;Alright, I will start uploading articles and news about the scandals surrounding the many artistes of Emperor Entertainment. Is there anyone in particular that you would like me to target?&x201D; The person on the other side of the line replied coolly.
Ku Jie&x2019;s real name was Jiang Muyang. He was Jiang Yuning&x2019;s cousin and he been raised by Jiang Yuning&x2019;s father ever since he was a little boy. Therefore, to him, Jiang Yuning&x2019;s father was his very own father figure. &x201C;There are so many people that I hate, it doesn&x2019;t matter. Just make sure that you include the scandal involving Shen Ru and the vice-chairman,&x201D; Jiang Yuning calmly appointed the two candidates.
These two people had contributed in making her life hell for a few times already.
&x201C;I got it.&x201D; The man on the other side of the line gently replied.
Jiang Yuning&x2019;s father mysteriously disappeared five years ago and this led to her mother eloping with another man. In order to raise money to take care of her grandfather who was critically ill, Jiang Yuning decided to enter the entertainment industry. Jiang Muyang also entered the industry at the same time as a paparazzi in order to protect and watch over his cousin sister.
For the past few years, the both of them had worked hand in hand to post the news and scandals evolving around Emperor Entertainment in order to raise Jiang Yuning&x2019;s status in the company.
They had not expected that because of Lu Zongye&x2019;s influence, the company would coerce and humiliate her just because she refused to be played by Lu Zongye.
Since things have already turned out this way, she might as well cast the net and try her luck since she had nothing else to lose. Jiang Yuning quickly turned on the computer at five in the evening and when she went to surf the internet, she saw the title of the scandal articles and photographs marked in bright red.
In a few minutes, Emperor Entertainment and its artistes were hot on the search button.
One of the most circulated news was the one where Shen Ru spent the night at a hotel with the vice-chairman of Emperor Entertainment. This was equivalent to selling herself to gain favor and book some of the jobs in the industry.
One week ago, Jiang Yuning&x2019;s face was splattered all over the front pages of all the tabloid articles and before the public had gotten over it, Emperor Entertainment and its various artistes were now all over the tabloid news.
This was clearly done by Ku Jie.
The higher-level management team of Emperor Entertainment was convened and an emergency meeting was called. They quickly contacted Ku Jie and asked what was his intention in revealing all these scandals, and they wanted to know what he was trying to achieve.
Ku Jie used a voice changer before replying them. &x201C;I am slightly angry that you dismissed my favorite artiste, Jiang Yuning from Emperor Entertainment. Maybe you can try inviting her back to Emperor Entertainment. If you do so, I might be appeased and maybe I will stop posting and revealing more scandals involving artistes from your company.&x201D;
What kind of reason was this?
&x201C;Is this a joke?&x201D; The communication team at Emperor Entertainment could not help but laugh when they heard his request.
&x201C;If you try it, you will know if I will keep my word. Otherwise, I will keep releasing more articles involving your artistes tomorrow.&x201D; Ku Jie hung up immediately after he had spoken.
Jiang Yuning was scrolling through all the news and tabloid at home, and her mood was getting better and better.
If Emperor Entertainment did not make use of her, threaten her under Lu Zongye&x2019;s instructions and then kick her aside for no absolute reason, she would not have reacted this way.
As Jiang Yuning was celebrating with a glass of wine, Lu Jingzhi suddenly called her.
Jiang Yuning glanced at her caller ID and quickly answered the call when she saw that it was Lu Jingzhi. &x201C;Hello?&x201D;
&x201C;Are you sleeping already?&x201D; Lu Jingzhi had just finished a meeting in the conference room and he suddenly wanted to hear her voice. &x201C;No&x2026;&x201D; Jiang Yuning said with a guilty conscience as she did not want Lu Jingzhi to know that she was actually not as innocent as she looked.
&x201C;Is Emperor Entertainment your former agency?&x201D; Lu Jingzhi suddenly asked.
&x201C;Yes.&x201D; Jiang Yuning was puzzled as Lu Jingzhi did not look like the kind of man who would be interested in an entertainment company.
&x201C;It&x2019;s nothing, don&x2019;t worry about it. Go to bed earlier today.&x201D; Lu Jingzhi hung up and then looked at his secretary who was standing behind him. &x201C;This company is despicable. Find a reason and make sure they go bankrupt in three days.&x201D;
&x201C;Understood, principal.&x201D; The secretary quickly replied.
There was a reason why the secretary addressed him as the &x2018;principal&x2019;. Lu Jingzhi was the principal of 489 Education Group 1 . He was the head of the special home department of the country that specializes in studying supernatural phenomena. His resume was marked with the word &x2018;top secret&x2019; and every student graduating from this school was different from average students.
He was a&x2014;legend.
He hung up just like that? Jiang Yuning stared at her new cell phone.
Well, even though it was only a short conversation, Jiang Yuning was already contented.
She really liked Lu Jingzhi. She had been crushing on him ever since she was a little girl. However, she did not understand what this feeling was when she was a child. Now that she had grown up, she finally understood what she had been feeling for Lu Jingzhi all along. Unfortunately for her, when she finally realized what her feelings meant, she was already engaged to Lu Zongye. Therefore, she could only keep her feelings for him a secret for the past few years. She had never expected that she would be able to have a one-on-one conversation with Lu Jingzhi.
Therefore, last night was like a page of a fairy tale to Jiang Yuning.
After finishing the glass of wine, Jiang Yuning jumped into bed immediately. She could smell Lu Jingzhi&x2019;s fragrance and her lips curved into a smile subconsciously.
Everything seemed to be going smoothly for her and she was sure that the people of Emperor Entertainment would be having a sleepless night today.
What a great feeling!
True enough, the conference room in Emperor Entertainment was still brightly lit even though it was already in the middle of the night. A group of people were seated around the conference table and they were all in a dilemma. They were the ones who had instigated the scandal involving Jiang Yuning and the married director under the orders of Lu Zongye. Furthermore, they finally managed to get rid of her after taking advantage and making use of her for the past few years. How were they supposed to get her back now?
The problem was that Ku Jie holds the power over Emperor Entertainment at the moment. No one knew exactly how much information and scandals he still had in his hands.
Therefore, if they did not act as he had requested, things would definitely be worse tomorrow.
In the end, the higher-level management team decided to appease Jiang Yuning. They contacted her former agent and instructed him to invite Jiang Yuning back into their company.
How much more shameless could they be?
They had asked Jiang Yuning to sell her body for sixty million yuan just this afternoon, and now they were begging her to come back&x2014;
Jiang Yuning&x2019;s agent also felt that the company was shameless, but he had no choice but to make the phone call.
The sunshine in March was extremely warm and comfortable. Jiang Yuning received a phone call from her agent when she was having her breakfast.
&x201C;Darling Yuning, where are you staying now? The chairman wants to meet you. How about I go and pick you up right now? I have some good news for you. The company will not pursue the sixty million yuan, nor will they require you to spend the night with their customer, as long as you join the company as an artiste again.&x201D;
After listening to her agent, Jiang Yuning held back her laughter and asked innocently, &x201C;Why? Is the company facing some sort of difficulties?&x201D;
&x201C;You have probably seen the news. Ku Jie is threatening the company. He has requested that the company reinstate you as an artiste, or else he will continue exposing more secrets concerning Emperor Entertainment and its artistes. The higher-level management is also having a headache because of this matter. Yuning, just remember that if you help the company, they will definitely repay your kindness.&x201D;
&x201C;Is that the case? Well, that is good news then,&x201D; Jiang Yuning said as she laughed. &x201C;Alright then, you can come and pick me up. I will go to the company to discuss the terms in detail.&x201D;
&x201C;That is great! I will come over soon.&x201D;
After putting down the phone, Jiang Yuning smiled. She had to go back to the company so that she could exact her revenge.
There would be a good show to watch soon. At ten in the morning, Jiang Yuning was escorted through the entrance of Emperor Entertainment by her agent.
This actress, which was bombarded and then dismissed by her company just a few days ago, was now escorted back to the company like a hero.
No one knew what was going on in Ku Jie&x2019;s mind. He was the one who blew up the scandal between Jiang Yuning and the married director until she was subsequently dismissed, and now, he was threatening the company for dismissing her.
Jiang Yuning was greeted with many complicated looks on the employees&x2019; faces as she entered the vice chairman&x2019;s office.
&x201C;Yuning, I am so happy that you are willing to come back. Look, I have already prepared the employment contract for you. Have a look at it and let me know if you have any other terms or conditions that you want me to add into the contract.&x201D;
The vice-chairman was being very gentlemanly. He poured her a glass of tea, and also a glass of water, but Jiang Yuning had not forgotten that he was the one who had asked her to spend the night with the dark-skinned customer just yesterday.
Jiang Yuning curved her lip into a smile. She took the pen from her agent and then suddenly stopped as she was just about to sign the contract. &x201C;On second thought, no&x2014;I don&x2019;t think I want to sign this contract after all.&x201D;
