Lu Jingzhi and his friends had just come out of the National Defense office building. When Lu Jingzhi received the call from Jiang Yuning, his friends were just standing right next to him.
When Jiang Yuning screamed into the phone, everyone around Lu Jingzhi could faintly hear what she had just said.
The secretary coughed a little and quickly rushed to the front to open the door for Lu Jingzhi.
&x201C;Text me the address of your location,&x201D; Lu Jingzhi hurriedly whispered before hanging up the phone. He then continued walking beside his friends.
&x201C;Jingzhi&x2026; do you already have a woman?&x201D; One of his friends who was about to get into his car, suddenly turned around and asked him. &x201C;Is it that woman who has your heart?&x201D;
&x201C;Yeah.&x201D; Lu Jingzhi replied as he nodded, not denying anything at all.
&x201C;Then I guess my sister is really completely out of the picture now. Bring her out to meet us one of these days.&x201D; After that, Lu Jingzhi&x2019;s friend turned around and then got into his own car and left.
Lu Jingzhi checked his cell phone before getting into the car before he instructed the driver to drive to the location where his little descendant was waiting for him.
&x201C;Remove the bodyguards later.&x201D;
As soon as he heard Lu Jingzhi&x2019;s command, the secretary quickly waved his hand and said, &x201C;No, principal. Your safety is of utmost importance here.&x201D;
&x201C;I will be responsible for my own safety.&x201D;
Lu Jingzhi&x2019;s whereabouts had always been kept a secret and the group of bodyguards protecting him had never let him out of their sight before.
He had never thought that there was anything wrong with this arrangement before, but now, he found it rather inconvenient. Furthermore, he had to take care of his little descendant.
&x201C;Well then, I will get one of the more discreet bodyguard to be your driver today,&x201D; the secretary quickly replied. &x201C;Principal, please do not refuse. This is the most compromise that I can give you today. Otherwise, I do not know how to answer to those with higher power.&x201D;
Lu Jingzhi nodded his head slightly. That was for the best.
He did not want an entire entourage following him as he wanted to be as discreet as possible around Jiang Yuning. This was because he did not want Jiang Yuning to become a target as he also had enemies of his own.
Jiang Yuning waited for more than half an hour in a small back alley as she did not want to be recognized by anyone nearby. She was also afraid that if she was discovered, she would only bring more trouble to Lu Jingzhi.
Jiang Yuning&x2019;s heartbeat started to accelerate as soon as she thought about the eight hundred million that Lu Jingzhi had forked out to clear her debts. What should she say to him when she sees him later?
This man had secretly done so much for her without expecting anything in return. Even if she were to give him everything that she had, it would not be enough.
A short while later, Lu Jingzhi&x2019;s black sedan stopped at the exit of the back alley. As soon as Jiang Yuning saw the sight of the familiar car, she quickly got up from behind the potted plants and rushed forward to open the car door.
As soon as she entered the car and looked Lu Jingzhi in the eyes, she felt as though she was about to melt away.
&x201C;We will talk more when we get home,&x201D; Lu Jingzhi said as he closed his eyes, reminding her that there were other people present in the car with them.
Jiang Yuning knew that they needed to be discrete but she still wanted to hold his hand.
Lu Jingzhi looked down at her left hand beside him but he did not push her hand away. When the driver was not looking, Lu Jingzhi gently wrapped his hand around her small fist.
Jiang Yuning was satisfied as the warm sensation spread throughout her entire body. She leaned back against the car seat and closed her eyes.
It had been an extremely tiring and chaotic day but she finally felt safe and secure in Lu Jingzhi&x2019;s presence.
After a forty minutes&x2019; drive, they finally arrived at the villa. Lu Jingzhi quickly grabbed hold of Jiang Yuning&x2019;s hand and pulled her into the villa. He did not even look at Sister Liang but as soon as he entered the villa, he quickly said, &x201C;Sister Liang, you can get off work now.&x201D;
&x201C;Okay, sir.&x201D; Sister Liang did not hesitate for a moment, but she quickly packed up her backpack and then left the villa immediately.
Lu Jingzhi pushed Jiang Yuning up against the wall of the living room as he placed one hand behind his waist, his leg pressing against her knees tightly. &x201C;Were you trying to seduce me in the car? Was that it?&x201D;
&x201C;Holding hands is considered seducing you?&x201D; Jiang Yuning asked as she leaned back against the wall under the dim lights. She could feel the ferocious desire burning in the man standing before her.
&x201C;Didn&x2019;t you said that you wanted to have my little descendant? Are you afraid now?&x201D; Lu Jingzhi asked as he lifted her chin slightly. He could see the complex expression that she had on her face and he said, &x201C;Whatever I did for you five years ago, I did not do it expecting you to be grateful to me, neither do I expect you to repay me in any way. Therefore, you don&x2019;t have to show me such expressions and I do not want to see you acting remorseful again in the future.&x201D;
&x201C;Why don&x2019;t you think about it? I was shocked when I found out the truth. I felt so sad and guilty about the inheritance that aunt left you and I felt so bad that you had to keep it all to yourself. I feel so bad for everything that you had done for me. If I know of the entire truth but I did not feel guilty and instead take it all for granted, what does that make me? Can I even be considered a person?&x201D; Jiang Yuning rebutted immediately. &x201C;Why do you like me so much? If you like me so much, then why don&x2019;t you make your little descendant with me?&x201D;
Jiang Yuning removed Lu Jingzhi&x2019;s coat and then began unbuttoning his shirt as soon as she finished speaking. They began kissing passionately, and it seemed as though things were getting heated up until Lu Jingzhi suddenly paused and said, &x201C;You want to repay me with your body? So, do you think that your body is worth eight hundred million?&x201D;
Jiang Yuning did not move or speak a word because Lu Jingzhi saw right through her heart.
He could tell that she had many complicated feelings pushing her to act impulsively and her gratitude towards him was one of the main catalysts.
&x201C;You have nothing to say?&x201D;
When Jiang Yuning saw that Lu Jingzhi had already begun straightening out his clothes and buttoning up his shirt once again, she quickly replied, &x201C;Other than gratitude, I also have feelings for you. When you like me, it is counted as feelings but if I like you, it is not counted as feelings? I know that you do not want my gratitude, but do you accept my feelings then?&x201D;
Lu Jingzhi did not move or say a word.
Jiang Yuning quickly took the opportunity to pounce on him. &x201C;I don&x2019;t care. I want you so there&x2019;s no turning back for you.&x201D;
Lu Jingzhi placed his hands around her waist as he sneered. &x201C;Last night, you would rather die than let me touch you. Why are you suddenly fine with it today?&x201D;
&x201C;I knew that you would definitely question me about this. It is not that I do not want to give myself to you and it is not that I do not want you at all. I am not trying to play hard to get. It is just that&x2026;&x201D; Jiang Yuning said as she rested her head against Lu Jingzhi&x2019;s shoulder. &x201C;Ever since our teenage years, Lu Zongye had been harassing me and verbally hinting me that he wanted something. I had been escaping and refusing him for the longest time. However, when I was sixteen, Lu Zongye used my classmates to lure me into the grove beside the school where I was bullied by three other men that were friends with Lu Zongye. Fortunately, I was saved by the gardener who was passing by that area. Ever since that incident, I had always felt unsafe and afraid when it came to this kind of matter.&x201D;
After listening to Jiang Yuning&x2019;s explanation, Lu Jingzhi was tense and there was a sense of coldness radiating from his eyes.
He had always known that Jiang Yuning had some kind of psychological fear towards intimacy but he did not know that it had come about like this.
&x201C;After I got home, I quickly told my grandfather about what had happened and I proposed to have the engagement annulled. However, Li Shutong quickly brought Lu Zongye with her to my house and they got on their knees to apologize to me and my grandfather, begging for another chance. That was why my grandfather decided to give that scumbag another chance. It was never my intention to avoid you&x2026;&x201D;
Lu Jingzhi listened attentively as he slowly brought Jiang Yuning upstairs, step by step towards the bedroom.
&x201C;You&x2026; have you forgotten about our bet?&x201D; Lu Jingzhi suddenly asked. &x201C;Didn&x2019;t you tell me that you had already been a virgin for twenty-four years and it would absolutely not be an issue for you to hold back for another ten more days?&x201D;
&x201C;I&x2014;I willingly admit defeat,&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied shyly. &x201C;You are the worst. You knew that I would react this way once I found out the truth. You knew that I&x2026; would give myself to you.&x201D;
&x201C;I want you to be real and to be with me without any psychological burden.&x201D; Lu Jingzhi carried her into the bedroom and placed her on the bed. &x201C;Therefore, I want to help you to overcome your psychological barriers. We will take it slowly and you have to let me know when it becomes too much for you to handle, okay?&x201D;
&x201C;Okay.&x201D; Jiang Yuning nodded her head gently, feeling slightly embarrassed.
