&x201C;That was my friend&x2019;s sister,&x201D; Lu Jingzhi quickly explained.
The girl that Jiang Yuning was talking about was Xu Beishen, Xu Liangzhou&x2019;s sister. That was also the first and only time that Xu Beishen had been so close to Lu Jingzhi, and Jiang Yuning had unexpectedly witnessed first-hand.
&x201C;At that time, I could see that the girl adored you. That was why I thought&x2026;but it&x2019;s okay. I finally understand now that you could not have had feelings for her at that time. Second brother, we are going to share everything that we have ever done and clear all the misunderstandings between us tonight, right? Are you sure you have nothing else that you are still hiding from me? I am afraid that my heart cannot take it anymore.&x201D;
&x201C;Yes, I am sure.&x201D; Lu Jingzhi nodded his head as he ran his fingers through Jiang Yuning&x2019;s hair.
&x201C;In the future, you belong to me and I belong to you. No matter what happens in the future, I will never let you go. If anyone wants to snatch you away from me, I will definitely put up a fight!&x201D; Jiang Yuning said, full of determination. &x201C;However, the one thing that I really want to know now is why the butler had treated you that way in the past.&x201D;
&x201C;That&x2019;s not important anymore. The only thing that I want to know now is&x2026;if you had not been waiting in front of my university at that time, and if you knew that I asked you to run away with me, would you have agreed to follow me?&x201D;
Jiang Yuning turned around and looked straight into Lu Jingzhi&x2019;s eyes. &x201C;I would have. Of course I would have followed you.&x201D;
At this moment, there was no need for more words or any further explanation. Both of them had once again proven the importance of the other and the place that they held in each other&x2019;s hearts.
After another round of intercourse, the two of them still refused to rest. It seemed as though they were not planning on sleeping that night.
They huddled up together in bed, hugging one another tightly, refusing to let go. They talked about all their past and how they felt at that time. They wanted to express their feelings clearly to each other to prevent any further misunderstandings in the future. Time seemed to fly by as without warning, it was all of a sudden already dawn.
&x201C;Second brother, it&x2019;s time to get ready for work,&x201D; Jiang Yuning reminded Lu Jingzhi as the glare of the morning sun reflected against her face.
Lu Jingzhi got out of bed and brought Jiang Yuning to the bathroom to wash up with him.
They were both were extremely exhausted as they did not manage to sleep at all. After being intimate, they continued sharing their memories and feelings, and then started being intimate again&x2014;the cycle went on throughout the entire night. At the end of the night, Jiang Yuning could not even keep count of the number of times that they had sex.
Jiang Yuning could not imagine how shocked Sister Liang would be to see saw the mess that they had created in both of the bedrooms. Jiang Yuning felt extremely embarrassed just thinking about it. It was not just the bedrooms that were a mess. There were also several used condoms in the bathroom and she was pretty sure that Sister Liang would have seen it when she tidied up the rooms.
When a man&x2019;s sexual desire was unleashed, it was unstoppable.
When Lu Jingzhi came out of the bathroom to change into his working suits, he saw Jiang Yuning sitting on the bed, deep in thoughts about how she could get rid of the evidence before Sister Liang came.
&x201C;What are you thinking about?&x201D; Lu Jingzhi frowned as he walked towards Jiang Yuning. He was afraid that she was regretting what they had done last night.
&x201C;I was just wondering what Sister Liang is going to think of me&x2026;&x201D; Jiang Yuning said as she placed her hands against her hot and flushed cheeks. &x201C;We were uncontrollable last night. Why is life so unfair? You still look so refreshed and energetic. Does your back not hurt at all?&x201D;
&x201C;Sir. Miss. Are you awake?&x201D; Before Lu Jingzhi could reply Jiang Yuning, Sister Liang had already came knocking on their bedroom door.
Jiang Yuning subconsciously reached out her hands and wrapped it tightly around Lu Jingzhi&x2019;s waist. &x201C;Second brother, wait for me to wash up. I want to go out with you. I don&x2019;t know how I am going to face Sister Liang all by myself.&x201D;
&x201C;You don&x2019;t need to,&x201D; Lu Jingzhi said as he leaned over and kissed her on the lips. &x201C;Sister Liang is more understanding and experienced than you think. Otherwise, who did you think prepared the translucent shower curtains, the contraceptives, and the audio that you were listening to last night? The only thing she doesn&x2019;t know is that you have a psychological barrier. Therefore, she would just think that you are very adventurous in the bedroom.&x201D;
Jiang Yuning: &x201C;&x2026;&x201D;
&x201C;I am going out now. If there is anything else, we can talk about it when I come back tonight.&x201D; Lu Jingzhi was not worried and he was very calm because he knew that Sister Liang was very professional. On the other hand, Jiang Yuning&x2026;
As Lu Jingzhi knew that Jiang Yuning was embarrassed, he quickly left Sister Liang some instructions as soon as he stepped out of the bedroom. &x201C;Sister Liang, do not let Yuning see you cleaning up the bedrooms later. She is very shy about it.&x201D;
&x201C;I understand, sir.&x201D; At first, Sister Liang felt that it was very odd for Lu Jingzhi to remind her about this sort of matter.
After witnessing the mess in both of the bedrooms, Sister Liang finally understood.
Jiang Yuning looked down from the window of the bedroom on the second floor and watched as Lu Jingzhi got into his car and left. She could not help but to tremble when she looked at his firm buttocks. Now that she thought about it, her legs felt very wobbly today.
&x201C;Miss Jiang, your cell phone was ringing earlier,&x201D; Sister Liang suddenly informed Jiang Yuning.
Jiang Yuning quickly picked up her cell phone and as soon as she saw that she had missed a call from Ku Jie, she called him back immediately.
&x201C;Brother, are you back already?&x201D;
&x201C;I am still abroad right now. I have already hired a few private investigators to help me investigate the background of Dongheng Enterprise. Five years ago, Dongheng Enterprise did not exist at all. There was only a small shoe workshop owned by the Huo family. The shoe workshop was merely a medium-sized enterprise and it was only until Fu Yahui invested all the money that she had taken from the Jiang family into their enterprise that Dongheng Enterprise could become as successful as it is today. I have already done some rough calculations and I think that the amount that Fu Yahui took away when she emptied the Jiang&x2019;s family&x2019;s financial accounts was at least seven billion yuan.&x201D; Ku Jie did not hesitate to inform Jiang Yuning the results of his investigations over the phone.
&x201C;I finally understand why Huo Yuxi had never mentioned her identity when she first entered the entertainment industry. It was because she isn&x2019;t even a fuerdai 1 . &x201D;
Seven billion! Jiang Yuning felt as if her heart was about to explode when she heard the amount.
&x201C;Brother, do you know who exactly it was who helped me to repay the debts owed by the Jiang family in the past?&x201D;
Jiang Yuning&x2019;s throat burned and she felt as though she was choking whenever she thought about this.
&x201C;Why?&x201D; Ku Jie quickly asked. Five years ago, when Ku Jie returned from abroad to help Jiang Yuning, all her debts had already been cleared. He tried to uncover information about the mysterious benefactor, but was unable to find out anything at all.
&x201C;It was Lu Jingzhi. It was second brother. He sold everything that he had and he even used all of the inheritance that his mother had bequeathed him to settle the debt for me. He did not want to alarm me or the Lu family, which was why he had done it all in secret. He even borrowed some money from his friends so that he could settle the Jiang family&x2019;s debt of eight hundred million yuan,&x201D; Jiang Yuning said as she held back her tears. &x201C;I will make sure that Fu Yahui returns everything that she has ever taken from the Jiang family.&x201D;
Ku Jie could not believe his own ears. &x201C;Are you sure about that?&x201D;
&x201C;I am sure,&x201D; Jiang Yuning answered affirmatively.
&x201C;I am still in the United States now. We will further discuss our next course of action when I come back.&x201D; Ku Jie could never have possibly imagined that this matter was related to Lu Jingzhi.
The Jiang family&x2019;s affair in the past was too mysterious and complicated. Jiang Yuning was not even sure if she had already gotten to the bottom of it.
However, the only thing that she wanted to know right now was why the Jiang family&x2019;s butler had deceived Lu Jingzhi and treated him in that humiliating manner in the past.
It was so difficult to find the lawyer in the past, so she hoped that finding the butler would not be as difficult.
&x201C;Brother&x2026;don&x2019;t hang up first. Can you help me to find the butler that used to work for the Jiang family? I need to ask him something.&x201D;
&x201C;Alright, I will update you later,&x201D; Ku Jie replied before hanging up. It was an easy task for him.
After getting the butler&x2019;s address and information, Jiang Yuning intended to visit him with Lu Jingzhi. She wanted to ask the butler about why he had told Lu Jingzhi that she hated him and wanted to avoid him.
There must have been a reason behind that.
At that time, Lu Jingzhi had just lost his mother, while his father had also left the family because of his wife&x2019;s illness. It must have taken him a lot of courage to step up and look for her. She could only imagine how miserable and depressed he must have felt to get such an answer from the butler.
It was all her fault. She was stupidly waiting in front of Lu Jingzhi&x2019;s university and her cell phone was turned off for several days because it had ran out of battery.
Jiang Yuning could feel her heart aching for Lu Jingzhi.
