After Ku Jie left, Jiang Yuning tried to contact the lawyer who had worked for the Jiang family in the past. Five years ago, when the Jiang family went bankrupt, it was that lawyer who helped her to settle the debts of the Jiang family. It was because of this lawyer that Jiang Yuning could enter the entertainment industry with no worries about owing any debt, except to earn enough money for their living expenses.
Now that Fu Yahui had returned, Jiang Yuning needed to find that lawyer because he was the only one who knew exactly how much money Fu Yahui had stolen from the Jiang family in the past. If Jiang Yuning were to initiate a lawsuit, she needed a witness who knew every exact detail of all the events that had transpired in the past. She needed a professional lawyer to help her deal with all this. However, searching for this lawyer now was like looking for a needle in a haystack.
The wind was very strong that night and the atmosphere was gloomy.
When the troubled Jiang Yuning saw Lu Jingzhi taking off his coat with the help of Sister Liang, she immediately looked at him with big pleading eyes and said, &x201C;Second Brother, please help me look for someone.&x201D;
&x201C;Who?&x201D; Lu Jingzhi said as he turned his head sideways to look at her.
&x201C;The lawyer who formerly worked for the Jiang family.&x201D;
&x201C;Why are you looking for him?&x201D; Lu Jingzhi asked after a moment of silence. He turned around but did not look at Jiang Yuning. It was as though he was afraid that he would accidentally reveal any secret.
&x201C;I just want to find him and ask for his help. I really want to figure out how much debt the Jiang family had in the past,&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied with high expectations. She had spent the last few years looking for her benefactor, but even after all these years, her efforts had been futile.
&x201C;Even if you figure it out, would you even be able to repay that debt?&x201D; Lu Jingzhi quickly replied, keeping a straight expression on his face.
&x201C;Why are you so certain that I will not be able to repay him?&x201D; Jiang Yuning rebutted. She felt as though Lu Jingzhi&x2019;s tone indicated that he knew exactly how much debt the Jiang family was in. &x201C;Second Brother, just tell me if you are willing to help me or not.&x201D;
Lu Jingzhi unbuttoned his black shirt and after Sister Liang left the villa, he walked over and sat down right beside Jiang Yuning. &x201C;It all depends on your performance.&x201D;
&x201C;What performance?&x201D; Jiang Yuning was confused as she did not understand what he meant. She stared deeply into Lu Jingzhi&x2019;s eyes, and his black pupils had her reflection in them.
Lu Jingzhi got up from his seat and stood in front of Jiang Yuning as he grabbed hold of her wrist. He then put one hand behind her back and swooped her up into his arms.
Jiang Yuning was so shocked that she subconsciously wrapped her legs around his waist and put her arms around Lu Jingzhi&x2019;s neck. &x201C;Do you have nothing else to do every time you return to this villa?&x201D;
What she meant was, he only knew how to take advantage of her.
As Lu Jingzhi carried her to the bedroom, he felt that Jiang Yuning was getting more and more courageous. Just a few days ago, she was coming up with all sort of reasons just to avoid getting into the bedroom with him but now, she dared to question him directly.
&x201C;Men will not spare any effort when it comes to training their woman.&x201D;
Initially, Jiang Yuning thought that Lu Jingzhi would put her down as soon as they arrived at the bedroom. However, after arriving at the bedroom, Lu Jingzhi pushed her up against the wall and started kissing her passionately.
The faint street lights shone into the dark bedroom and in this quiet space, all that could be heard was the sound of the both of them kissing.
&x201C;Wait&x2014;wait&x2014;&x201D; Jiang Yuning quickly pushed Lu Jingzhi away when she felt as though she could no longer breathe. &x201C;Second Brother, if I fainted because of your kissing, you will be on the losing end.&x201D;
Lu Jingzhi gently leaned against Jiang Yuning&x2019;s forehead in the darkness as he tried to calm down his inner desire. &x201C;There is no escape for you.&x201D;
&x201C;So, how was my performance? Will you help me to find him?&x201D; Jiang Yuning quickly took the opportunity to ask. &x201C;My mother, the one who had eloped with another man many years ago has returned. Now, she is the deputy president of Dongheng Enterprise. I cannot just let her get away with it. Lu Jingzhi, I am a very vengeful person.&x201D;
&x201C;What a coincidence. Me too.&x201D; After speaking, Lu Jingzhi put her down and pulled her into the bathroom. He turned on the showers and then continued kissing her under the shower.
&x201C;My lips are already swollen from all this kissing!&x201D; Jiang Yuning said as she gently tried to push him away.
&x201C;Endure it. Didn&x2019;t you say that you wanted to satisfy me?&x201D; Lu Jingzhi asked, refusing to give her the opportunity to escape from his grasp.
&x201C;You are such a tyrant. So, will you help me to look for him or not?&x201D;
Lu Jingzhi did not reply but continued kissing and torturing Jiang Yuning in the bathroom.
This made Jiang Yuning fearful because if it was already so intense when she was still on her menstruation, then wouldn&x2019;t it be over for her if she was not menstruating at that time?
Two hours had already passed when the both of them finally came out of the bathroom.
Jiang Yuning leaned against Lu Jingzhi&x2019;s arms. Her lips were really a little swollen from all that kissing.
In fact, Lu Jingzhi deliberately intended to punish Jiang Yuning.
This was because his secretary had already spent the last two days rummaging through all the love letters that he had received in his alma mater, but he could not find the love letter that Jiang Yuning claimed to have sent him.
Did she really write the letter or did she lied to him just to make him happy?
The secretary was tortured for two whole days just looking through all of the love letters that Lu Jingzhi had received before and he eventually decided to return to the village to ask the staff at the post office. However, he did not manage to find the love letter. After all, it had already been nine long years since Jiang Yuning claimed to send the letter. Even if it was stored in the mail room, the letter would already be old and rotten.
Coincidentally, the staff at the post office was also a former guard at Lu Jingzhi&x2019;s alma mater.
&x201C;Although I am not sure how important the letter is, I am pretty sure that you would not be able to find the letter anymore. After all, it had already been nine years. However, I still remember that nine years ago, there was a young girl who had stood outside the school gate for three days and four nights, just to wait for Lu Jingzhi. I can still remember how she looked like. She had long black hair and she was squatting down by the gate in the snow and when I asked her if I could help her with anything, she just shook her head and said that she wanted to wait for Lu Jingzhi. However, Lu Jingzhi did not turn up at school at all throughout those few days.&x201D;
As soon as the secretary heard what he had just said, he quickly took out his cell phone and scrolled to look for a picture of Jiang Yuning. After finding it, he showed it to the old man who was about sixty years old and quickly asked, &x201C;Is this her? Is this the girl you are talking about?&x201D;
&x201C;She has a mole on her eyebrows. Yes, this is her,&x201D; the old man stared at the picture for a long time as he silently shook his head. &x201C;I was particularly impressed and I have always remembered her because she was so infatuated and dedicated that even though it was so cold because it was snowing, she stayed on and kept hiding behind the trees to avoid the cold breeze.&x201D;
The secretary was extremely excited after listening to the old man&x2019;s story.
He quickly made a phone call to Lu Jingzhi at eleven o&x2019;clock in the middle of the night, just to brief him on what he had discovered.
Lu Jingzhi kept silent as he listened to the secretary and then turned around to stare at Jiang Yuning who was sleeping soundly on the bed. After a short while, he suddenly said, &x201C;Bring the old man here with you.&x201D;
After the conversation with his secretary, Lu Jingzhi put his cell phone away and went back to bed, pulling Jiang Yuning into his arms. &x201C;Have you only become this cold because you have been disappointed too many times?&x201D;
It had been a long time since Jiang Yuning cared whether she was cold-hearted or not.
In the past, when she was in love with Lu Jingzhi, she had done every stupid thing that she could do. Even after so many years, she did not regret any of her actions because every little thing that she had done everything for Lu Jingzhi, she had done so willingly.
On the other side, the chairman of Millennium Entertainment had already given Huo Yuxi a call even before the sky was bright. All the negative perceptions that the public previously had towards her had disappeared because of the hype about her true identity yesterday.
Therefore, her agency had come up with another idea. &x201C;Why don&x2019;t you ask your stepmother to go out shopping with you? It would be best for you to give her a notice in advance. We will arrange for the paparazzi to run into the both of you and give her an interview on the spot. When she starts talking about you, it would be perfect if she praised you about your career.&x201D;
