As Jiang Yuning was about to leave in her white coupe, Huo Yuxi&x2019;s agent hurriedly chased up to her. He quickly took out his cell phone and was ready to note down Jiang Yuning&x2019;s contact information. &x201C;Miss Jiang, hold on.&x201D;
Jiang Yuning turned around to look at the agent who was staring right back at her.
&x201C;Millennium Entertainment has already prepared an employment contract for you. When would you be free to look through it and sign it with us?&x201D;
&x201C;I do not have time for an agency like this,&x201D; Jiang Yuning said as she shook her head. &x201C;Looking at how Huo Yuxi has turned out, I have decided that I do not want to be affiliated with an agency that has such shabby artistes. Thank you.&x201D; After that, Jiang Yuning drove off in her white coupe and left Huo Yuxi&x2019;s agent standing there all by himself.
Although she was one of the most hated artistes by the public, she still had her own dignity.
Lu Zongye was still unclear of the situation that had just unfolded as he entered the mountain villa. If they already had Jiang Yuning in their hands, why did Huo Yuxi let her go so easily?
Huo Yuxi was sitting on the sofa and there were still tears streaming from her eyes. She looked calm on the outside, but actually felt extremely guilty towards Lu Zongye.
&x201C;Yuxi&x2026;what is going on here? That little shrewd&x2026;&x201D;
&x201C;Stop talking about her. All this has happened because of your bad suggestion. You do not even know how much blackmail material Jiang Yuning has on us. Let us just ignore her for now and focus on our marriage, can we? Furthermore, now that my pregnancy is public knowledge, I am pretty sure that the media and paparazzi will definitely come and harass me. How do you expect me to raise a baby like that?&x201D;
&x201C;Okay, sure. Stop crying already.&x201D; Lu Zongye immediately compromised. &x201C;We will get married first and make sure that you give birth to a healthy little baby. After that, we will find the opportunity to finally deal with Jiang Yuning. I did not expect that Jiang Yuning would be so capable.&x201D;
Huo Yuxi buried her face in Lu Zongye&x2019;s chest but she did not say a word. She no longer dared to offend Jiang Yuning.
All she could do right now was to pretend that she was extremely weak from the pregnancy and avoid any subjects relating to Jiang Yuning. She had to focus on getting through with the wedding with Lu Zongye first.
Fu Yahui stood on the corridor of the second floor of the mountain villa as she listened to the conversation between Lu Zongye and Huo Yuxi. She had a complicated expression on her face.
Things were not as simple as it seemed right now, and it was not a good thing. Therefore, Fu Yahui agreed that the best thing to do was to get Huo Yuxi to marry into the Lu family as soon as possible.
As soon as she thought about this, Fu Yahui picked up her cell phone and made a phone call. &x201C;Co-mother-in-law, why don&x2019;t we meet up in the afternoon to decide on the auspicious wedding date for our children?&x201D;
After arriving at the villa, Jiang Yuning turned on her laptop to watch the news and to read the comments that had been posted by the netizens.
The netizens were indeed very angry with Huo Yuxi but Jiang Yuning realized that in each of the comments, the netizens had also mentioned her name.
[I believe that this news was released by Jiang Yuning because she wants to take revenge on Huo Yuxi. She is really vicious!]
[Jiang Yuning, your whole family will suffer and die a terrible death because of you! How could you do this to a pregnant woman?]
[Jiang Yuning, what rights do you have to expose Huo Yuxi? You are just jealous of her! Get out of the entertainment industry. Thank you.]
Although all of these comments were obviously posted by Huo Yuxi&x2019;s fans, the number of likes on each of these comments were sufficient to represent the feelings of the general public.
Did the netizens really have such a bad impression of her?
Although she was already accustomed to having a bad reputation and negative reviews, Jiang Yuning could not help but to feel frustrated. What was worse was that she did not have a way to get rid of all this negativity.
At noon, Jiang Yuning suddenly received a phone call from the young paparazzo who sounded extremely excited. &x201C;Sister Yuning, I have found out who the culprit is. It turns out that it was Huo Yuxi herself who had released the news to the media. Would you like me to release this news immediately?&x201D;
&x201C;You don&x2019;t need to,&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied calmly. She had already given Huo Yuxi such a big scare when she went to the mountain villa earlier this morning. Although she had found concrete proof that it was Huo Yuxi who had self-directed this entire drama, Jiang Yuning felt that she would not be able to change the perception of the public even if she released that information.
&x201C;Young boy, let me ask you&x2026;are all the dramas that I have acted in really that horrible?&x201D;
&x201C;Well&x2026;not completely&x2026;yes.&x201D; The young boy then quickly added, &x201C;But you looked really beautiful.&x201D;
&x201C;That means that my dramas really are horrible.&x201D;
&x201C;You are still young anyway. The day will come when you have a good drama to act in. I believe that the public will definitely change their perception of you then.&x201D; The young boy did not know how he could comfort her and could therefore only say anything that came to his mind. &x201C;Furthermore, you already have a number one fan like me. Brother Ku Jie and I will definitely help you.&x201D;
Besides that, she also had Lu Jingzhi as her boyfriend. At the thought of this, Jiang Yuning finally snorted and laughed out loud. &x201C;I have changed my mind. I want you to release the information that you have gotten now. Huo Yuxi had planned everything herself, so why should I be taking the blame for her?&x201D;
&x201C;That is the right move! You should just sit back and watch the show that is about to start.&x201D;
After she hung up on the energetic young paparazzo, Jiang Yuning sat down and meditated by herself. She should not be wasting any more time on that scumbag Lu Zongye and Huo Yuxi, but instead focusing on how to restart her career.
The matter involving the Lu family was slowly reaching its climax and therefore, she should be focusing on repositioning her own career.
Later in the evening, Jiang Yuning suddenly received a phone call from Fu Yahui. &x201C;Your elder sister&x2019;s wedding is scheduled for the sixth day of next month. Make sure to set aside the time to attend your sister&x2019;s wedding.&x201D;
The sixth day of next month. That meant that it was only less than half a month away.
Huo Yuxi was probably feeling anxious and had wanted to get through with the wedding as soon as possible after what had happened earlier that morning.
&x201C;I understand, mom.&x201D;
&x201C;Yuning, I know that I have wronged you. You can be rest assured that I will not repeat the same mistake and wrong you again.&x201D;
&x201C;Thank you, mom,&x201D; Jiang Yuning quickly replied. However, she knew clearly that she would never be on the same wavelength as her mother in this lifetime.
As she was on the phone, she could hear Lu Jingzhi&x2019;s black sedan driving into the compound of the villa. She quickly hung up on the phone call with Fu Yahui.
&x201C;Miss Jiang, I am getting off work now,&x201D; Sister Liang said. Sister Liang then waited until Lu Jingzhi entered the villa and she helped him take off his coat before she finally left the villa.
&x201C;He&x2019;s so early today?&x201D; Jiang Yuning thought to herself as she glanced at her watch. This was strange.
Lu Jingzhi was wearing a black shirt and he started to untie his bow tie as he sat down beside Jiang Yuning. &x201C;Why do you have that expression on your face? Do you not want me to come back early?&x201D;
&x201C;What do you mean?&x201D; Jiang Yuning quickly replied. &x201C;Is the expression on my face really that obvious?&x201D;
