&x201C;Have I ever clearly expressed that I hated you?&x201D; Lu Jingzhi asked after listening to Jiang Yuning&x2019;s words. He tightened his arms around Jiang Yuning&x2019;s waist.
&x201C;You are always so cold to me, that meant that you did not like me anyway,&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied immediately as she stared right into his eyes. At this moment, Jiang Yuning&x2019;s eyes were bright and it carried a sense of playfulness, sincerity, and affection that she did not usually display.
&x201C;How would you know how I feel if you have never asked me before?&x201D; Lu Jingzhi hugged her tightly in his arms and continued questioning her. His voice was filled with anger, as though he had been seriously wronged. &x201C;I will not allow you to leave me again in the future. Didn&x2019;t you say that you like me? Even if you stopped liking me one day, I will make sure that I turn you around and make you fall head over heels in love with me again.&x201D;
Jiang Yuning left him alone as he hugged, questioned and commanded her.
She indulged in each and every one of his words because it all sounded like a beautiful dream to her.
&x201C;Am I dreaming right now?&x201D; Jiang Yuning felt that everything was too unreal and she reached out her hand to pinch Lu Jingzhi&x2019;s cheeks. &x201C;But if you did not hate me, why were you so cold to me all the time? That really hurt me for a long time.&x201D;
&x201C;That is because you were my third brother&x2019;s fianc&xE9;e at that time and&x2014;I never knew that you had resisted against it.&x201D;
&x201C;So&x2026;&x201D; Jiang Yuning wrapped her hands tightly around Lu Jingzhi&x2019;s neck, as though she had just understood something. &x201C;Second Brother, were you jealous?&x201D;
This time, Lu Jingzhi did not refute Jiang Yuning&x2019;s words.
&x201C;Now, do you still doubt my feelings for you?&x201D; Jiang Yuning asked as she blinked her eyes and continued staring at Lu Jingzhi.
Lu Jingzhi helped Jiang Yuning up and they sat on the edge of the bed as Lu Jingzhi slowly straightened out Jiang Yuning&x2019;s messy hair for her. &x201C;The past is in the past now. All we have now is the future, so let&x2019;s focus on that and start all over, okay?&x201D;
Jiang Yuning stared at Lu Jingzhi and then reached out to grabbed his hand and placed it gently against her cheek. &x201C;Alright then.&x201D;
&x201C;But&x2026; since we are already together, can we take this relationship slow?&x201D;
&x201C;What do you think?&x201D;
Jiang Yuning smacked her lips tightly together and started pouting. She was a little fearful of taking the relationship too fast.
&x201C;I don&x2019;t care anymore. I am going to go to an online forum to seek help. The title of my issue will be
After listening to Jiang Yuning&x2019;s words, Lu Jingzhi could not help but smiled helplessly as he patted Jiang Yuning gently on her head. &x201C;I told you that I would help you to find the Jiang family&x2019;s lawyer last night, but I was drunk. I will talk to you about it when I come home tonight.&x201D;
The both of them instantly felt better after clearing up the air between them. Jiang Yuning&x2019;s mood was a lot lighter because she finally understood why Lu Jingzhi had such complex feelings and why he had been so possessive all these while. She also gradually began to believe that Lu Jingzhi already had feelings for her since a long time ago, and they had too many misunderstandings between the both of them.
It was very dangerous to provoke a man who was bored.
The both of them sat down in bed, staring at one another and they could not help but continue kissing and rolling around in bed until Sister Liang started knocking on the bedroom door. &x201C;Sir, it is almost time.&x201D;
Jiang Yuning turned around to face Lu Jingzhi. Why did it feel like Sister Liang would always be interrupting them whenever they were being intimate? &x201C;When you come home tonight, I still have some important things that I would like to ask you.&x201D;
Lu Jingzhi stood up and quickly helped Jiang Yuning up on her feet before slowly straightening out her white lace dress for her.
The old man was enjoying breakfast prepared by Sister Liang downstairs. When he saw the young couple holding hands as they walked down the stairs, he understood that they should have already opened up their hearts to one another.
&x201C;The two of you should not be so awkward and back out of any bad situations easily, especially you,&x201D; the old man said as he pointed at Jiang Yuning. &x201C;You had the determination to wait for your lover for three days and four nights in the past. Whenever you argue in the future, think about why and how much you liked him before. Although your feelings might fade away and your heart might seem cold at the moment, it could never be as cold as those winter nights.&x201D;
&x201C;I understand, Uncle.&x201D; Jiang Yuning was flustered by the old man. Was he a reincarnation of the moon? Why was he nagging at her so much about love?
&x201C;It is good that you understand. It shows your willingness to learn.&x201D;
Jiang Yuning looked up at the tall man who was standing next to her and she placed her hand directly on top of her heart. Her heart was really extraordinarily fast at the moment. So, this was what it felt like to finally know that the extremely talented and successful man that she had a crush on and liked all these years, also liked her back the same way.
It felt like heaven.
Lu Jingzhi then asked the secretary to arrange for the old man to stay in Luo City for a few more days so that he could walk around and enjoy the city. The old man was now without any burden and therefore, he nodded and agreed to Lu Jingzhi&x2019;s suggestion.
The bodyguards had been waiting outside for a long time. After taking a last look at Jiang Yuning, Lu Jingzhi told her not to stay out of trouble before finally getting into the car.
Did she really create that much trouble for him before? Well, recently she had been splattered all over the entertainment news and it seemed as though there was no way for her to escape that.
However, Jiang Yuning suddenly realized that she had not heard from Fu Yahui at all after their meet up yesterday. Jiang Yuning believed that Fu Yahui must have met with Huo Yuxi in private and by this time, she should probably be suspecting that yesterday&x2019;s event was all Jiang Yuning&x2019;s doing.
Jiang Yuning thought about biting the fish hook that Fu Yahui had thrown out and sending herself to her doorstep. However, before she could do that, she received a phone call from the young paparazzo who had helped her out the day before. &x201C;Sister Yuning, do you have the time to meet up with me? I think I found out something incredible.&x201D;
&x201C;Sure. Just drop me your address and I will go and look for you.&x201D; Jiang Yuning felt that this young boy was really interesting.
&x201C;Hurry up then!&x201D; The young boy quickly gave Jiang Yuning a location to meet up with him and he swore before hanging up the phone.
Jiang Yuning could not help but laugh. Where did her brother manage to find such a young treasure?
After a short while, Jiang Yuning drove out of the villa and met up with the young boy at the quiet lake.
As soon as the boy saw Jiang Yuning arriving, he quickly ran over to her with his camera. The expression on his face seemed as though he was about to explode from keeping the gossip to himself. He really had the talent to be in this industry. &x201C;Sister Yuning, I just heard some rumor that Lu Zongye is not a child from the Lu family.&x201D;
Jiang Yuning was also shocked when she heard the news from the young paparazzo. &x201C;Where did you get your information from?&x201D;
&x201C;I am a paparazzo after all. After finishing up the assignment that you have given me yesterday, I went back to school to attend a dinner held at the school. A senior that I am rather close with started gossiping to me. She is in charge of social news. This time she went to the suburbs to gather some news from the elderly in the nursing home there. She heard one of the elderly saying it. She said that she felt bad and wanted to help her daughter to return to the prestigious family that she belonged to. In the past, she swapped her own child with someone else for money and now she wants to make an atonement because she feels sorry for the child that she had swapped over. However, this matter involved the highly prestigious Lu family and therefore, no one dared to say anything about this matter. Therefore, my senior was just telling us this story as a joke,&x201D; the young boy explained very seriously to Jiang Yuning.
&x201C;I was also afraid that the news might not be true so I went to the nursing home early this morning to get some confirmation from that elderly. I managed to confirm that it was indeed Lu Zongye who had been swapped when he was merely a baby. I think that this should be true as the elderly was able to give me a lot of information.&x201D;
It seemed as though the information that the young paparazzo had gotten was highly credible after all.
After all, Li Shutong was merely a salesgirl who was selling jewelry in the past. How was she able to marry into the Lu family? It must have been because she had given birth to a son.
&x201C;Do not spread this information to anyone else yet. Go and find out more about how the daughter of that old woman is doing at the moment. Make sure you do not interrupt their daily life.&x201D;
&x201C;You can trust me. I am good at my job. Sister Yuning, does this mean that I can get a few more autographs from you?&x201D; The young boy quickly took out an autograph book and a black marker from his bag.
Jiang Yuning rolled her eyes after listening to him. Does this young boy have no other hobbies besides getting her autographs?
&x201C;Why are you so interested in getting my autographs?&x201D;
The young boy smiled at her and quickly replied, &x201C;This is because I have a hunch that very soon, you are going to be really popular all over the world.&x201D;
