&x201C;The only thing that could capture my attention in any of your dramas is just your face alone.&x201D; Even as her boyfriend and therefore, her number one fan, Lu Jingzhi could not comprehend the type of drama that Jiang Yuning usually acted in.
&x201C;Sir, I will get off work now,&x201D; Sister Liang said as she headed towards the door after removing Lu Jingzhi&x2019;s coat for him.
&x201C;Alright, you can leave now.&x201D; Lu Jingzhi promptly replied before loosening his neck tie and sitting down next to Jiang Yuning on the sofa.
&x201C;Why are you so late today?&x201D; Jiang Yuning asked as she took a look at the time on her watch. She was sure that Lu Jingzhi did not come back to the villa as soon as he got off work.
&x201C;I made a trip to the Lu family mansion.&x201D;
&x201C;Oh, they have alerted you about the situation already,&x201D; Jiang Yuning said as she put the snack down on the table and wiped her hands clean with a paper towel. &x201C;It sure seems like this child of hers had not only saved Huo Yuxi&x2019;s life, but it had also given Lu Zongye the chance to rise again. Unfortunately for them&x2026;&x201D;
&x201C;Yes?&x201D; Lu Jingzhi replied in his low and sexy voice as he stared at Jiang Yuning.
Jiang Yuning stood up immediately and started whispering quietly into Lu Jingzhi&x2019;s ears.
After listening to Jiang Yuning&x2019;s words, Lu Jingzhi pulled Jiang Yuning closer to him and beckoned her to sit on his lap. It seemed as though he was not overly concerned about the matter regarding Lu Zhengbai&x2019;s family.
&x201C;It is very simple to find out the truth. I can just ask the butler to get a DNA test done to compare the results on both Lu Zongye and my second uncle&x2019;s DNA. By doing so, the truth will come to light.&x201D;
&x201C;It is important that you do not act rashly even after you discover the truth. You have to agree to let them get engaged. It is crucial for Yuxi and Lu Zongye&x2019;s to get their hopes lifted up. Once they start acting smug about the engagement, we will find the perfect timing to drop the bomb on them.&x201D; Jiang Yuning placed her arms around Lu Jingzhi&x2019;s neck and started acting like a spoiled child. &x201C;You can promise me that&x2026; right?&x201D;
&x201C;My grandfather has already decided on this matter. Therefore, I will not interfere in it.&x201D;
The only reason why he agreed to the engagement was because of the deputy director of Dongheng Enterprise and also because of the child that Huo Yuxi was carrying.
&x201C;That is good then,&x201D; Jiang Yuning said with a smile on her face. &x201C;Do you remember that you were supposed to discuss the matter regarding the Jiang family lawyer with me tonight?&x201D;
&x201C;The driver will pick you up and bring you to meet the lawyer tomorrow,&x201D; Lu Jingzhi replied immediately before lifting Jiang Yuning up from the sofa into his arms and carrying her to the bedroom.
&x201C;Do you really think that the dramas that I acted in are not good at all?&x201D; Jiang Yuning could not help but asked as they were on the way to the bedroom.
&x201C;It is really bad,&x201D; Lu Jingzhi replied without any hesitation. &x201C;It does not depict any cultural connotations at all.&x201D;
&x201C;If you are such a cultured and refined person, then what do you think you are trying to do now?&x201D; Jiang Yuning said as she angrily pushed Lu Jingzhi&x2019;s chest away from her. &x201C;You are trying to get me to sleep with you every day!&x201D;
&x201C;Stop moving around.&x201D; Lu Jingzhi said as he placed her on top of the bathroom vanity top. He seized the opportunity to grab hold of her hands before saying, &x201C;I used to think that you were like a sheep that was really weak and needed protection. However, now I finally realized that you have so much resistance in you.&x201D;
&x201C;I am a bad fox who can deceive hearts,&x201D; Jiang Yuning whispered into Lu Jingzhi&x2019;s ears as she rested her head on his shoulder.
&x201C;Why don&x2019;t we make a bet?&x201D; Lu Jingzhi asked as he lifted up Jiang Yuning&x2019;s chin slightly. &x201C;Within the next ten days, you will willingly give yourself to me. Do you dare to gamble with me?&x201D;
&x201C;I have already been a virgin for twenty-four years. do you really think that I cannot control myself just for ten more days? Second Brother, are you sure about this bet?&x201D; Jiang Yuning asked as she looked at Lu Jingzhi confidently. &x201C;Let&x2019;s gamble then! If I win, then you cannot try to take advantage of me every day and I would also be able to decide when we finally sleep together.&x201D;
&x201C;What if you lose the bet?&x201D;
&x201C;Then you will get to decide,&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied confidently.
&x201C;Are you sure?&x201D;
&x201C;Yes, I am sure because I will not lose.&x201D; Although she had been mesmerized by him for a long time, she firmly believed that she had enough self-control and self-respect and therefore, she would not be the one who would take the initiative to sleep with a man. &x201C;However, the premise of this bet is that you are not allowed to use any despicable means to get me to do your bidding.&x201D;
Jiang Yuning immediately corrected her sentence as soon as she realized her own mistake. &x201C;I was wrong. You are not that kind of person.&x201D;
When Lu Jingzhi saw the apologetic expression on her face, he quickly grabbed hold of her arms and brought her to the shower area. He pushed her against the wall and then started kissing her passionately.
This was the first time Jiang Yuning had seen Lu Jingzhi acting this way. It seemed as though he was deliberately acting this way to weaken her defense against him.
Although Jiang Yuning did not show any weakness and she counterattacked, but deep inside, it was impossible for her not to be tempted or moved at all.
This was the man that she was in love with and in this kind of situation, she would definitely think of what could have happened.
However, since she had already made a bet, then she should not be losing the bet.
After what seemed like a long time, the both of them finally came to their senses. Lu Jingzhi brushed his hand across the scar on her shoulder and took the opportunity to ask her, &x201C;How did you get this scar?&x201D;
Jiang Yuning could not help but tremble a little when Lu Jingzhi touched her scar. &x201C;I got the scar because I was fighting for an acting role with someone.&x201D;
&x201C;Did you win?&x201D;
&x201C;I lost,&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied defeatedly. &x201C;How would I ever be able to fight and win against someone who has a strong backing? Furthermore, at that time, Lu Zongye was suppressing my movements.&x201D;
&x201C;In future, remember that you are also a person with a strong backing now,&x201D; Lu Jingzhi replied as he held firmly onto her shoulders. &x201C;And you will never lose.&x201D;
Jiang Yuning felt as though she was about to be blown away by Lu Jingzhi.
&x201C;You&x2014;stop trying to make me give in like this,&x201D; Jiang Yuning quickly said. She did not dare to look into Lu Jingzhi&x2019;s eyes anymore and she quickly plunged into his arms and buried her face in his chest to avoid looking at him.
&x201C;Okay fine, I will stop teasing you.&x201D;
&x201C;I do not want to shower with you&x2026;&x201D; Jiang Yuning said as she quickly sneaked out of his arms. &x201C;I will come in to shower after you are done showering.&x201D;
After saying that, Jiang Yuning quickly ran out of the bathroom. She could not stop her heart from beating erratically. She quickly thought to herself, &x201C;This is too dangerous. I might have to change the title of my previous forum to Did I overestimate my own ability to control myself?&x201D;
Lu Jingzhi suddenly felt as though the last decades that he had known Jiang Yuning was in vain as he saw her running out of the bathroom.
The night was relatively safe for Jiang Yuning.
When she came out of the shower, Lu Jingzhi was already lying in bed, reading a book. This was something that he had to do every night. After he was done reading, he put his book down and laid down to rest but he did not have any intention of touching Jiang Yuning at all. Jiang Yuning was not used to this at all. Was he really not going to&x2026; hug her or kiss her goodnight?
She still wanted to be hugged and she still wanted him to kiss her goodnight. Right now, Lu Jingzhi was lying in bed right next to her but he had no intention of touching her at all! Had she been banished to the cold palace?
She needed sleeping pills! She was going to have insomnia tonight!
It was drizzling late at night, but the lights in the living room of the Lu family mansion was still lit.
This was because Lu Zongye and Li Shutong were extremely excited and they could not contain their excitement at the sudden turn of events.
Lu Zongye and Li Shutong were full of grievances because they had been ordered around and treated like servants at the Lu family mansion for the past few days. However, with the news that Huo Yuxi was pregnant with Lu Zongye&x2019;s child, he could finally marry Huo Yuxi and he could also personally fight for his own interest with his grandfather.
&x201C;Son, this child really came at the perfect timing. You did not see the expression on your second brother&x2019;s face earlier today. For the first time ever, your grandfather actually took your side. That was really fun and memorable.&x201D; Both the mother and son were drinking champagne and celebrating in the living room.
&x201C;I finally got rid of Jiang Yuning, that shrewd woman. No&x2026;I want to make her suffer and pay for what she did to me.&x201D;
Lu Zongye did not dare to tamper with Lu Jingzhi. Therefore, the only thing he could do was to take his anger out on Jiang Yuning.
&x201C;Do not act rashly. She might turn out to be your sister-in-law in future,&x201D; Li Shutong said as she tried to dissuade her son.
&x201C;Have you forgotten the look on her face when she snubbed us in front of Second Brother a few days ago? No. I have to deal with her nicely.&x201D;
Oh? Based on the ability of a bastard like you?
