&x201C;She had already taught me a lesson because of the hype that we created yesterday. Why would she promise to put on an act for me again?&x201D; Huo Yuxi said as she started getting a little impatient.
&x201C;Isn&x2019;t she your mother? Why wouldn&x2019;t she help you out?&x201D; The chairman asked in disbelief. &x201C;Even if she disagrees, can&x2019;t you just lie to her then? When the both of you run into the paparazzi when you are out, you could just pretend that you know nothing about it. I do not believe that she will not help you if that was the case.&x201D;
&x201C;What kind of ridiculous idea is this? She is not that gullible!&x201D; Huo Yuxi retorted.
&x201C;You are still her daughter no matter what you think. It is not that difficult. Just buy her a gift and be nice to her. You should know for yourself that you have already lost many job opportunities because of the scandal involving Lu Zongye. Take advantage of this opportunity given to you and your career might be restored sooner than you would have expected.&x201D;
Huo Yuxi wanted to reject the suggestion put forward by the chairman but after tasting the aftermath of the hype yesterday, she really did not want to lose the chance to regain her fame and clear her name. If she could just use her relationship with Fu Yahui to clear her own name, she believed that her stepmother would not blame her for that.
All she had to do was buy her a gift and be nice to her? That was not too difficult&x2026;
The sky was bright and blue by the seaside.
Jiang Yuning was woken up by a man gently kissing her lips. When she opened her eyes, she saw Lu Jingzhi&x2019;s perfectly sculpted face at such close proximity to her. She felt as though she was still dreaming. She quickly hooked her arms around the man&x2019;s neck and pulled him closer to her to deepen the kiss.
&x201C;I promise you.&x201D; Lu Jingzhi was satisfied because Jiang Yuning took the initiative to kiss him. There was a slight smile on Lu Jingzhi&x2019;s face although he rarely ever smiled. He pulled back and straightened his body before saying, &x201C;I will find the Jiang&x2019;s family lawyer for you.&x201D;
&x201C;Really?&x201D; Jiang Yuning bounced off the bed excitedly and quickly stepped forward to hug Lu Jingzhi from the back.
&x201C;I will give you more information when I come home tonight.&x201D; After speaking, Lu Jingzhi patted Jiang Yuning&x2019;s hand gently. &x201C;I have a function to attend tonight. I might be home late. If you are tired, you can rest first. You do not need to wait for me.&x201D;
&x201C;I will wait for you&x2026; No matter how late it is, I will wait for you,&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied excitedly.
Lu Jingzhi turned around to look at Jiang Yuning but when he saw the excited expression on Jiang Yuning&x2019;s face, he could not help but pull her into a hug again. As Jiang Yuning leaned against his chest, Lu Jingzhi suddenly said, &x201C;Don&x2019;t give me any trouble when you go out later.&x201D;
&x201C;What do you think I am going to do?&x201D; Jiang Yuning said as she quickly looked down to hide the expression on her face.
&x201C;I am afraid that there will be no one to clean up the mess for you if I am not by your side,&x201D; Lu Jingzhi said as he got out of bed and walked straight into the bathroom to wash up.
Jiang Yuning stared at Lu Jingzhi&x2019;s back as he walked away from her. She felt that he was a lot gentler to her today compared to how he had treated her yesterday. He did not show her any attitude at all. Was it because he felt guilty towards her?
However, since Lu Jingzhi had already promised to find her family lawyer for her, she believed that she would be able to see her benefactor soon.
Little did she know that her benefactor would be someone that she knew.
After Lu Jingzhi left the villa, Jiang Yuning turned on her laptop to watch the entertainment news. Yesterday, the entire internet was filled with news about Huo Yuxi&x2019;s family background. Today, the internet was filled with comparisons between both of Lu Zongye&x2019;s girlfriends.
The newly released post compared the both of them in terms of their acting skills, their education history, their appearances and also their family background.
In the end, the conclusion was that if they were Lu Zongye, they would have also cheated on Jiang Yuning.
In terms of acting skills, Huo Yuxi was the top actress and on the other hand, any movie or show that Jiang Yuning starred in would always have a mere score of 4.0.
In terms of academic qualifications, Huo Yuxi was a qualified scholar who had graduated from a famous university overseas whereas Jiang Yuning did not even finish her college education.
In terms of appearances, Huo Yuxi was a charming and sexy woman with a body that women would die to have and would make a man go crazy. Jiang Yuning on the other hand was a young woman and her only winning point was her youth.
The netizens seemed to have come to a conclusion that comparing Jiang Yuning to Huo Yuxi was in fact degrading Huo Yuxi.
Were they really that different? It seemed as though she would have to ask Lu Jingzhi for his opinion tonight on who was prettier. Huo Yuxi or herself. Were the fans really so bias nowadays?
Jiang Yuning then logged into her public account and once again posted on her public page. &x201C;If the daughter of a rich person breaks up other people&x2019;s marriages, then she is not considered a mistress just because she is from a rich family?&x201D;
Since Millennium Entertainment insisted on using Huo Yuxi&x2019;s relationship with Fu Yahui to create a hype that will cover up all the bad deeds that Huo Yuxi had done, then they cannot blame Jiang Yuning for counter attacking.
Sure enough, as soon as Jiang Yuning posted her comment, fans started retaliating almost immediately.
&x201C;Hey Jiang Yuning, are you jealous?&x201D;
&x201C;Who asked you to be poor? Isn&x2019;t it normal and justified for Lu Zongye to dump you?&x201D;
&x201C;The Jiang family had already been gone for so many years. Do you really think you are still a young lady of a noble family? Just get lost already.&x201D;
&x201C;Jiang Yuning, I really feel like beating you up.&x201D;
&x201C;How can such an annoying and thick-skinned artiste exist? Do you exist just to make the general public hate you and feel disgusted with you?&x201D;
&x201C;Huo Yuxi&x2019;s mother is the deputy director of Dongheng Enterprise. Where is your mother?&x201D;
Jiang Yuning intentionally posted that comment, not to attract Huo Yuxi&x2019;s fans attention, but in order to attract Fu Yahui&x2019;s attention. She even deliberately left her contact information on her own personal page, so that the fish would bite the hook.
Where&x2019;s her biological mother?
Well, she would let everyone know soon enough.
After posting her comment, Jiang Yuning logged into her mailbox to check on her personal emails as she sat on the balcony to bask under the sun.
In fact, she was not allowed to venture into every area in the villa. There are several places that she or anyone else was prohibited to enter. The first place that she was prohibited to enter was Lu Jingzhi&x2019;s study because there are secret documents from his work hidden inside. The second was a bedroom that Lu Jingzhi had prepared for his mother.
All of Lu Jingzhi&x2019;s mother&x2019;s belongings were inside that bedroom. Lu Jingzhi&x2019;s mother had fallen sick suddenly and he had not been able to see her for the last time when she passed away. This was also one of the reasons why Jiang Yuning felt so bad for Lu Jingzhi.
Anyway, even if she could, she would not want to enter that bedroom because it would bring back memories of Lu Jingzhi&x2019;s mother.
After waiting for almost two hours and receiving countless numbers of threatening emails from Huo Yuxi&x2019;s fans, Jiang Yuning finally received an email from the person that she had been waiting for.
&x201C;Yuning, I am your mother. This is my contact information. Let&x2019;s meet up.&x201D;
Jiang Yuning sneered as soon as she saw the new contact information. She took out her old cell phone and replaced the contact information for Fu Yahui.
After that, she sent a text message to Fu Yahui. &x201C;I will meet you at the Butterfly Music Cafe at three in the afternoon. See you then.&x201D;
Fu Yahui replied after thirty seconds saying, &x201C;I will see you there.&x201D;
After reading the text message, Jiang Yuning quickly contacted the young paparazzo who had helped her out in Zhen Yang Media previously. If she did not take advantage of the situation this time, then when else would she be able to?
&x201C;Don&x2019;t worry, there is already someone who is watching each and every move that Millennium Entertainment and Dongheng Enterprise makes. Even if I were to do something, it would just be a backup.&x201D;
Before Ku Jie left, he had already informed his young assistant to keep tabs on Millennium Entertainment and also Dongheng Enterprise in case of an emergency. If Jiang Yuning wanted to send a message out at this time, it would be the perfect timing.
Not long after that, Millennium Entertainment got hold of the news that Ms. Ava from Dongheng Enterprise would be meeting Jiang Yuning at the Butterfly Music Cafe at three o&x2019;clock in the afternoon. After receiving the news, Huo Yuxi&x2019;s agency immediately confirmed the authenticity of the news with Ms. Ava&x2019;s employees. The agency then made a phone Huo Yuxi immediately.
&x201C;You don&x2019;t need to buy a gift anymore. There is a window of opportunity now,&x201D; the agent quickly said as he spoke over the phone.
&x201C;But, how can you be certain of what my mother is thinking?&x201D; Huo Yuxi asked disgruntedly.
