Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
&x201C;You guys&x2026;what do you think you are trying to do? Do not mess around with me&x2026;I will call the police,&x201D; the butler screamed at them. He would never have expected that Lu Jingzhi would come to his house.
This was the Lu Jingzhi who was extremely powerful now.
The butler felt guilty at the thought of how he had treated Lu Jingzhi in the past and he started breaking out in cold sweat.
&x201C;Are you that surprised?&x201D; Lu Jingzhi sneered as he placed his arm around Jiang Yuning&x2019;s waist and hugged her tightly. He then whispered into Jiang Yuning&x2019;s ear, &x201C;Since we are already here, I will not let him off so easily anymore. I will let you watch a good show tonight&x2026;&x201D;
&x201C;Are you serious?&x201D; Jiang Yuning asked Lu Jingzhi.
&x201C;Was he scolding you earlier before I intervened?&x201D; This was actually the only thing that Lu Jingzhi cared about.
Jiang Yuning nodded her head slightly. The butler had just scolded her very badly indeed.
&x201C;Then I will have to take this very seriously then,&x201D; Lu Jingzhi replied with rage in his eyes. &x201C;Get into the car.&x201D;
Jiang Yuning did not understand the situation but she obeyed Lu Jingzhi&x2019;s command and quickly got into the car.
Lu Jingzhi also got into the car before driving off to the nearest police station. When they arrived at the police station, Lu Jingzhi made a phone call to Xu Liangzhou. &x201C;My status is of an inconvenience, so could you help me to do something?&x201D;
Xu Liangzhou was rather surprised to suddenly receive a call from Lu Jingzhi asking for his help. &x201C;Do you need me to come out personally?&x201D;
&x201C;That would not be necessary,&x201D; Lu Jingzhi replied before explaining the situation to his friend. After that, he quickly ended the conversation and hung up the phone.
Very soon, a few police officers came out of the police station and knocked on Lu Jingzhi&x2019;s car window. &x201C;Mr. Lu.&x201D;
&x201C;What have you discovered?&x201D; Lu Jingzhi asked.
&x201C;This man has a son and a daughter, and his son is currently working as a reporter. We have also discovered that the vehicle registered under his name has violated the regulations several times and he has also been involved in two hit-and-run accidents. His daughter is working as a public official but we cannot find any relevant interviews or supporting documents justifying her position. Therefore, we suspect that her test results were all fake. Finally, the house that this man is living in belongs to his mother, but he had driven her out of the house quite a long time ago.&x201D;
&x201C;Then go and deal with that family now,&x201D; Lu Jingzhi replied with a straight face. Lu Jingzhi then rolled up the car window before driving Jiang Yuning off to a nearby hotel.
&x201C;Are we not going home?&x201D; Jiang Yuning asked.
&x201C;There is always some preparation to be made before a good show.&x201D;
Jiang Yuning moved closer to Lu Jingzhi before resting her head on his shoulder. &x201C;I said that I was going to deal with that butler on behalf of my man, but it seems to be the other way around now.&x201D;
&x201C;You do not need to draw such a clear line between the both of us,&x201D; Lu Jingzhi said as he placed his arm around Jiang Yuning and pulled her closer to him.
After a short while, Secretary Ho arrived and he arranged for the both of them to enter the hotel and into one of the hotel room in a low-key and guarded manner to ensure their privacy and safety.
&x201C;Principal. Miss Jiang. Have a good rest.&x201D;
Jiang Yuning looked around the hotel room. There was no bed inside the hotel room and it was clearly just a lounge. Second brother was extremely conscious about cleanliness and therefore, Jiang Yuning could understand that he would not spend the night outside without any guarantee that it was extremely clean.
&x201C;If you are sleepy, you can rest in my arms first,&x201D; Lu Jingzhi said as he pulled Jiang Yuning into his arms. &x201C;It will take some time to prepare for the upcoming show.&x201D;
&x201C;Is it really worth it to go through so much trouble for a man like him?&x201D;
&x201C;I have never been afraid of trouble,&x201D; Lu Jingzhi replied indifferently. &x201C;There are a lot of things in this life that can never be done overnight. You will definitely be rewarded if you are patient. Do you understand that?&x201D;
Jiang Yuning had already forgotten how good she was at persevering and waiting. She had forgotten that the benefits that she reaped after being patient was always better than anything she could dream of.
As she had already spent the whole day going through the drama script, Jiang Yuning felt a little tired. Since she was in the arms of the person that she trusted the most in the whole world, she decided to close her eyes and sleep for a short while.
When Jiang Yuning finally woke up, she realized that her surroundings were very noisy.
She was sitting inside the car with Lu Jingzhi&x2019;s coat draped over her. Their car was parked not too far away from the butler&x2019;s house.
&x201C;What is going on?&x201D;
Jiang Yuning saw that there were about eight big-sized men standing in front of the butler&x2019;s house at the moment. She could see item after item being thrown out of the butler&x2019;s house. There were many onlookers surrounding the house and they were all talking amongst themselves as they pointed at the house.
&x201C;He deserved this. He drove his own mother out of that house a long time ago. He should have seen this coming. He is finally getting his retribution now.&x201D;
&x201C;I have seen this man pushing him mother to the ground and hitting her in the past. Now, his mother is finally back to claim her own house. I must say it is really fun and interesting to watch all of his belongings getting thrown out of the house in the middle of the night.&x201D;
Jiang Yuning finally understood the situation after listening to the neighbours&x2019; conversations.
She was very delighted to know that the butler was getting thrown out of his house.
The old woman was sitting close to the front door of the house and she had a group of bodyguards protecting her so that no one could get close to her.
&x201C;Mom&x2026;mom&x2026;I was wrong in the past. Please do not chase us out of this house. Where do you expect us to go in the middle of the night? Mom, please forgive us&x2026;&x201D; The family of four kneeled down in front of the old woman, begging for mercy and forgiveness.
&x201C;Grandma, please do not chase us out of the house. We promise that we will be good and obey you in the future.&x201D;
&x201C;I never want to see any of your faces again. Get lost!&x201D; the old lady shouted as she continued sitting on the chair. &x201C;Throw all their belongings out of the house and throw it as far away as you can. I have already sold the house and the new owner is looking forward to checking out his new house. He does not want any of their belongings remaining in the house.&x201D;
&x201C;Mom, how can the person give you such a short notice if he is buying the house?&x201D;
&x201C;It was not his idea. It was mine&x2026;wait for it. After I receive the money from the sale of the house, I will definitely file a lawsuit against you. I want the whole world to know that you are a beast. I want the whole world to know how you and your family had treated me and misappropriated my belongings in the past,&x201D; the old woman shouted angrily as she finally vented out her frustrations from the past few years.
All of the butler&x2019;s belongings were quickly thrown out of the house by a large group of man handling them.
After clearing out the butler&x2019;s belongings, all the room doors were locked and subsequently, the front door of the house was bolted shut. The old woman was not going to give them any way out at all.
&x201C;Mom, no matter what has happened, I am still your son! You cannot do this to me,&x201D; the butler screamed as he grabbed onto his hair.
&x201C;If I had known that you would turn out to be such a scoundrel, I would have strangled you to death when I had the chance to,&x201D; the old woman replied. Her eyes were filled with hatred and resentment. &x201C;God is good! He finally gave me the chance to drive you and your heartless family out of my home.&x201D;
&x201C;The old woman is really impressive!&x201D;
&x201C;A scumbag like him should be struck by lightning! It is good to see him finally getting what he deserves!&x201D;
The neighbours were all speaking up for the old woman.
&x201C;Who bought your house? Who bought it?&x201D;
The old woman sneered before turning her head around.
The butler traced the old woman&x2019;s gaze and finally saw the black car parked under a tree not too far away from the house. He recognized the car immediately because he saw Lu Jingzhi driving it when he came over with Jiang Yuning earlier. He suddenly understood what was happening and he immediately stood up and ran over to the car, but he was quickly stopped by the bodyguards.
&x201C;What do you think you are you trying to do?&x201D;
&x201C;Second young master, I was blind and I did not know what I was doing in the past. You cannot treat my family and I like this,&x201D; the butler yelled as he knelt down on the ground once again. &x201C;I know that I was wrong. Just give me a chance and let me off the hook this time.&x201D;
As soon as he heard the butler&x2019;s words, Lu Jingzhi rolled down the window and replied in a very cold manner, &x201C;I have never liked people apologizing to me. What I want is for them to pay the price for what they had done. I have already bought the house and it belongs to me now. Once all the documentations and formalities are done with, I will demolish this place to the ground&x2026;&x201D;
