The both of them felt even more uncomfortable after they heard his reply. &x201C;Then&x2014;then you&x2014;just now&x2014;&x201D;
&x201C;I heard everything that you said,&x201D; Lu Jingzhi replied as he stared coldly at the both of them. He then turned around to look at Jiang Yuning who was overly excited and gestured to her to sit down and leave the rest to him.
Jiang Yuning snorted loudly before taking her seat again.
&x201C;Jingzhi, Zongye is your brother after all. You&x2014;you are not going to side with an outsider, are you?&x201D;
&x201C;Butler.&x201D; Lu Jingzhi did not respond to Li Shutong, but simply commanded the middle-aged man who was standing by the door.
&x201C;Second Young Master, what are your orders?&x201D;
&x201C;I will give you half an hour to pack up all of their belongings and throw the both of them out of this house. Instruct the Lu family finance team to suspend all of their bank accounts and credit cards,&x201D; Lu Jingzhi said calmly and indifferently. &x201C;The Lu family is not a zoo; we do not raise beasts.&x201D;
Lu Zongye and his mother were extremely dissatisfied when they heard what Lu Jingzhi instructed the butler. Li Shutong was especially enraged as she felt that she was Lu Jingzhi&x2019;s elder and he should treat her with more respect.
&x201C;Lu Jingzhi, I am still your second aunt after all. Is this how you should be speaking to your elders? My husband has not even commented on anything yet. What makes you think you have the right to do this?&x201D;
&x201C;You are not contented?&x201D; Lu Jingzhi asked as he rolled his eyes. He glared at her with a cold expression on his face. &x201C;When you successfully take over my position in this family, then you will have the right to question any decision that I make. However, even if Second Uncle were sitting here right now, I would still ask the both of you to get out of this house. Butler, do it now.&x201D;
&x201C;Understood, Second Young Master.&x201D; After replying the young master, the butler quickly summoned a few of the servants to go and pack up the items in Lu Zongye&x2019;s bedroom.
&x201C;No&x2014;no! You can&x2019;t do this!&x201D; Li Shutong screamed as she quickly chased after them.
Lu Zongye knew that he would not be able to challenge Lu Jingzhi&x2019;s decision. Therefore, he remained seated on the sofa with a blank expression on his face.
Jiang Yuning was extremely happy to see both the mother and son in despair, but she had not forgotten the purpose of her trip to the Lu family mansion.
Therefore, she bit her lips slightly as she turned around and looked at Lu Jingzhi. &x201C;My grandpa&x2026;&x201D;
&x201C;He is now resting in the guestroom. The butler will take good care of him tonight. We will make sure that he gets back into the hospital tomorrow. Lu Jingzhi replied her before asking, &x201C;Have you eaten yet?&x201D;
&x201C;I will ask the kitchen staff to prepare dinner for you.&x201D; Lu Jingzhi was hinting to Jiang Yuning that she should stay for dinner and continue watching the show as the two people were going to get kicked out of the house soon.
&x201C;Alright then.&x201D; Naturally, Jiang Yuning would not give up this opportunity for anything in the world. She smiled cheekily at Lu Jingzhi before nodding her head.
The servants were busy at work on the second floor as they made use of the time provided to them to pack up everything belonging to Lu Zongye. After they were done packing, they quickly brought down all the bags and placed them in the living room. Li Shutong kept pacing up and down the stairs with an angry and frustrated expression on her face, but it was of no use as Lu Jingzhi acted as though he could not see her at all.
After repeating her actions a few times, she suddenly felt that it was useless. She sat down on the ground and then decided to call her husband. The cool and calm reaction that she had put on the entire day suddenly disappeared into thin air.
&x201C;Lu Zhengbai, are you still working in the office? Your wife and son are about to get driven out of the house and yet you are still outside? How can my life be so miserable?&x201D;
The Lu family mansion was such a sacred place that it was totally unexpected for such a situation to occur here. The more she observed Li Shutong, the more Jiang Yuning felt like gouging her eyes out. As the kitchen staff were still busy preparing her dinner, Jiang Yuning turned around to face Lu Jingzhi as she whispered, &x201C;Can I go into the guestroom to see my grandpa?&x201D;
&x201C;Go to the study room on the third floor first,&x201D; Lu Jingzhi whispered to Jiang Yuning.
Jiang Yuning seemed to understand what he was implying but she nodded her head gently, pretending to be decent. &x201C;I will go and see my grandpa first.&x201D;
After all, Jiang Yuning used to hang around the Lu family mansion a lot when she was younger. Therefore, Jiang Yuning knew the locations of all the rooms around the mansion. The study room on the third floor was a special study that Lu Jingzhi&x2019;s grandfather had specially prepared for him. No one was allowed to enter that study except for Lu Jingzhi.
In the past, Jiang Yuning tried to secretly enter the study but Lu Jingzhi had installed a lock with a password on the door.
She had forgotten to ask him what the password was.
Jiang Yuning was hopeful as she tried to enter her idol&x2019;s birth date for the password combination, and then she tried to enter her idol&x2019;s mother&x2019;s birth date to no avail.
A moment later, Lu Jingzhi came up the stairs and when he saw that Jiang Yuning was still standing outside the door, he reached out and entered four digits to unlock the door.
After she saw him entering the password, Jiang Yuning was shocked.
Was she dreaming?
Her birthday? Hers?
As she was still in a daze, Lu Jingzhi took the opportunity to pull Jiang Yuning into the study room. Before she could react, Lu Jingzhi hugged her tightly in his arms. &x201C;I did not know that.&x201D;
Jiang Yuning was enjoying the excitement of having a secret affair, but she was stunned when she heard Lu Jingzhi&x2019;s sentence.
&x201C;You did not know?&x201D;
&x201C;I did not know that you requested to annul the engagement,&x201D; Lu Jingzhi said as he stared right into her eyes and hugged her so tightly that she could barely breathe.
&x201C;I already told you that you have misunderstood me, but you didn&x2019;t believe me,&x201D; Jiang Yuning said as she held on tightly to Lu Jingzhi, enjoying his embrace. &x201C;Ever since I turned sixteen, I have been asking to annul the engagement every year but my proposal was always shut down by my grandfather. After the accident happened to my family, I lost the will to keep asking to annul the engagement. However, that scumbag Lu Zongye refuses to let me go and kept trying to hurt me time and time again. Therefore, when he set me up with this scandal, I had no other choice but to take advantage of the situation and use it to get out of the marriage with him.&x201D;
After listening to her explanation, Lu Jingzhi felt a rush of excitement in his heart, and he did not wait for Jiang Yuning to continue her story. He lifted Jiang Yuning&x2019;s chin and then kissed her on the lips directly.
Jiang Yuning was extremely shocked. This kind of possessiveness made her mind went blank all of a sudden. As the two of them were about to lose control of themselves, the butler suddenly knocked on the door. &x201C;Second Young Master, the second master is home.&x201D;
Jiang Yuning felt as though she had just woken up from a dream. She was blushing. She should have been in the guest room visiting her grandfather, but here she was in Lu Jingzhi&x2019;s study, kissing him aggressively.
Lu Jingzhi could tell that she was nervous and so he quickly replied to the butler before talking to Jiang Yuning. &x201C;I will go down first. You can wait for a while before coming downstairs.&x201D;
The second master was none other than Lu Zongye&x2019;s father, Lu Zhengbai. He was Lu Jingzhi&x2019;s second uncle.
Lu Jingzhi left the study room calmly before closing the door. Jiang Yuning slowly regained her composure before heaving a huge sigh of relief.
Lu Jingzhi&x2019;s study room was not big and it was very simple. Jiang Yuning looked around the room and felt that it was very ordinary, just like any other child&x2019;s study room. The only difference was that his study room was password protected and the password was her birthday. When did he start using her birthday as his password?
Jiang Yuning decided to ask him that question the next time she had a chance to.
Jiang Yuning stayed in his study for another two minutes before she opened the study room door cautiously.
When she arrived at the staircase of the first floor, Jiang Yuning could hear the second master pleading and begging Lu Jingzhi for mercy. &x201C;Jingzhi, please give me face as your second uncle. After all, I have always been nice to you throughout all these years. Please just let your second aunt and Zongye off this time. I promise that there will be no next time.&x201D;
&x201C;Lu Zhengbai, are you still a man? Why are you begging him for mercy?&x201D; Li Shutong was sitting on the floor, holding on to her suitcase desperately. &x201C;I don&x2019;t care. I am legally a daughter-in-law of the Lu family. No one can drive me away.&x201D;
&x201C;You don&x2019;t want to leave? Well, that is not impossible,&x201D; Lu Jingzhi replied coldly before turning around to look at the butler. With a cold expression on his face, he then commanded, &x201C;Put them up in the maid&x2019;s room.&x201D;
