Chapter 52: Look at How Excited She Was
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
Huo Yuxi was speechless because she had not expected this kind of reaction from Jiang Yuning.
&x201C;Mom, if there is nothing else, I will be going home first. I would like to go home and run through my script again. I will come back to have dinner with you another day. Auntie Qin, I am leaving now. Have a good day.&x201D; After that, Jiang Yuning was about to get up but was immediately stopped by Fu Yahui, who quickly grabbed hold of her arm.
&x201C;I simply asked you to come over to explore your options and meet someone new. Is that too much to ask for?&x201D;
&x201C;Mom, all I want to do right now is to focus on my career. I do not have time for anything else.&x201D; Jiang Yuning then broke free from Fu Yahui&x2019;s grasp and got up quickly before leaving the living room.
Fu Yahui&x2019;s expression changed immediately, but she quickly took the time to explain the situation to her friend. &x201C;She has quite a temper because I have spoilt her too much.&x201D;
&x201C;It&x2019;s alright&x2026;Yuning is actually very likable. I understand that she must be still hurt from the annulment of her engagement with Lu Zongye. Therefore, it is inevitable for her to act that way,&x201D; the other party quickly assured Fu Yahui. &x201C;We will just leave the matters involving the children&x2019;s relationship to fate.&x201D;
Huo Yuxi sat at a corner of the living room with her lips pursed tightly together as she thought silently to herself. She could not believe that Jiang Yuning would actually have the guts to audition for a role in the upcoming drama production by Guangying Media. Such a role was one that even artistes with amazing acting skills could only dream off. What was wrong with Jiang Yuning?
She then suddenly remembered that she had some contacts in Guangying Media and since Jiang Yuning wanted to audition for a role there, then she would definitely have to make her suffer.
Jiang Yuning hastily left the mountain villa as Fu Yahui made her very uncomfortable by trying to matchmake her with someone else. However, as soon as she arrived at the front door, she ran into the top notch actor, Han Feng.
He was very tall and thin and he was very well groomed. He had a very nice complexion and it looked as though his face was filled with collagen. Despite his good looks, he was not Jiang Yuning&x2019;s type at all.
&x201C;You&x2026;aren&x2019;t you Jiang Yuning?&x201D; Han Feng was dressed very casually and was holding onto his cap. When he saw that Jiang Yuning was trying to avoid him, he subconsciously reached out his hand and tried to stop her. &x201C;Why are you running away from me?&x201D;
Jiang Yuning avoided his hand and quickly opened her car door and got inside before he could stop her.
Han Feng stared at Jiang Yuning as she drove away and he thought to himself, &x201C;This woman has a bit of a temper.&x201D;
After Jiang Yuning arrived back at the villa, she continued sitting in the driver&x2019;s seat for a long time as she thought to herself. The more she was in touch with Fu Yahui, the more disgusted she felt.
She was very clear about what Fu Yahui meant by inviting her over to the mountain villa to meet with Auntie Qin. Fu Yahui was still trying to control her and to take charge of her marriage even to this day.
Jiang Yuning was extremely disappointed in Fu Yahui. She could not believe that there would be such a mother in this world.
Jiang Yuning slowly sorted out her own emotions and finally decided that she should not be bothered with people who are irrelevant to her.
After that, Jiang Yuning then entered the villa. Her mood was much better after she saw Sister Liang and ate the lunch that was already prepared for her. After lunch, Jiang Yuning decided to call Ku Jie again. &x201C;Brother&x2026;have you landed safely? Can I meet you later in the afternoon?&x201D;
&x201C;Let&x2019;s just meet tonight,&x201D; Ku Jie replied. He sounded exhausted.
&x201C;Then tell me where we should meet up tonight. I will drive there later.&x201D;
&x201C;You don&x2019;t need to.&x201D; Ku Jie took a deep breath before continuing, &x201C;Your boyfriend has already sent someone over to my house to invite me over to your villa for dinner tonight.&x201D;
Jiang Yuning was extremely surprised when she heard what Ku Jie had just said. &x201C;You mean&x2026;second brother sent someone over to invite you to our villa tonight?&x201D;
&x201C;Do you have any other lovers at the moment?&x201D; Ku Jie replied sarcastically. &x201C;Ningning, I will come over for dinner tonight, but I hope that you will not interfere and allow me to make my own judgment about Lu Jingzhi.&x201D;
&x201C;I understand,&x201D; Jiang Yuning quickly replied. She was not going to force any opinion onto Ku Jie, but she really hoped that her brother would give them both a chance.
Although it would be impossible for an outsider to understand the relationship that she has with Lu Jingzhi, she still hoped to get Ku Jie&x2019;s approval and support.
No matter what it was, she had never expected Lu Jingzhi to make such an arrangement for her sake.
It was no wonder Sister Liang was still busy preparing food in the kitchen even after she had already made lunch for her. She did not know why Sister Liang had not told her that they were expecting Ku Jie tonight.
When Ku Jie arrive at the villa, it was already six o&x2019;clock in the evening. He had purposely arrived an hour earlier at the villa so he could catch up with Jiang Yuning before dinner was served.
The two of them had not met for quite some time and therefore, as soon as Ku Jie entered the front door, Jiang Yuning quickly rushed over and hugged her brother tightly. &x201C;Brother&x2026;&x201D;
Ku Jie helplessly patted Jiang Yuning&x2019;s head gently and said, &x201C;Don&x2019;t worry, I will not make things too difficult for your lover tonight&x2026;&x201D;
Ku Jie was a mixed race child and so, had very well-defined and symmetrical features just like that of a British man. He was about 185 centimeters tall and although the aura that he emitted was not quite as scary as Lu Jingzhi, he could still easily make people feel oppressed.
He liked to dress fashionably and loved extreme sports. As the owner of X Society, he was also very skilled in technology.
&x201C;Come over here and have a seat,&x201D; Jiang Yuning said as she stared at Ku Jie. The two of them quickly exchanged all the information that they had gathered during this period of time. Ku Jie was shocked when he found out that Lu Zongye was in fact not a part of the Lu family. He could not believe that Jiang Yuning only intended to expose the truth and release the news to the public after Lu Zongye and Huo Yuxi&x2019;s wedding.
&x201C;Can you really wait that long?&x201D;
&x201C;Second brother has told me that in life, there are a lot of things that can never be resolved overnight. Sometimes, being patient will give you more happiness than you can imagine,&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied confidently.
&x201C;That is also very true,&x201D; Ku Jie agreed with what she had just said. &x201C;What about your mother then? How do you intend to deal with her? Do you really believe that you have the ability to make her return the seventy billion that she has taken from the Jiang family?&x201D;
&x201C;To be honest, I am not sure if I can make her return that money. However, I am still extremely confident that I will be able to make her return the eight hundred million yuan that belongs to second brother,&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied, full of determination. &x201C;I have a way&x2026;&x201D;
Ku Jie could not help but laugh when he looked at Jiang Yuning. &x201C;Do you really feel so miserable just because your lover has suffered a little?&x201D;
&x201C;He was there to help me during the most difficult and challenging time of my life. I do not know if I would still be alive if he had not been there for me. Therefore, he is really very important to me, brother&x2026;&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied in a serious tone as she looked at Ku Jie. &x201C;Brother, please don&x2019;t be biased or judge him before you even try to get to know him, okay?&x201D;
&x201C;Okay,&x201D; Ku Jie replied coldly.
After all, Lu Zongye was a scumbag who he had treated Jiang Yuning so badly in the past. It was only natural for Ku Jie to be skeptical and think badly of the entire Lu family.
Lu Jingzhi finally arrived at the villa at around seven o&x2019;clock that night.
Jiang Yuning was excited and wanted to run over to Lu Jingzhi as soon as she saw him entered the villa, but she was stopped by Ku Jie.
Look at how excited she was!
Lu Jingzhi could immediately sense the prejudice in Ku Jie&x2019;s eyes as soon as he saw him. He could tell that Ku Jie was only guarded against him because Jiang Yuning had suffered a lot in the past, and that the pair of brothers and sisters had been there for each other amidst all the bad things that had happened to them throughout the past few years. Therefore, Lu Jingzhi did not take it to heart at all. He quickly took off his coat and handed it over to Sister Liang.
&x201C;I have not seen you in a long time&x2026;&x201D;
&x201C;That is true&x2026;but for someone living in the shadows like me, how could I be worthy of meeting the second young master of the Lu family?&x201D; Ku Jie sneered. &x201C;Did you even ask for my permission before bringing my sister over to live with you?&x201D;
Ku Jie was furious indeed.
Lu Jingzhi only smiled before turning around to face the both of them. &x201C;Let us take our seats at the dinner table. We can talk over dinner.&x201D;
&x201C;Do I need your permission to live with him?&x201D; Jiang Yuning whispered.
However, both the men heard what she had just asked.
Lu Jingzhi smiled, while Ku Jie&x2019;s expression was just bitter and filled with hatred.
&x201C;In the past, I did not know who you were, although I knew that you had a close relationship with Yuning. That was why I did not ask for your permission,&x201D; Lu Jingzhi explained as he pulled out a chair for Jiang Yuning.
&x201C;Second brother was previously jealous of you because I am so close to you,&x201D; Jiang Yuning added.
Lu Jingzhi could not stop her from saying anything else. He could only keep serving her the dishes that she loved.
Ku Jie rolled his eyes as he stared at the both of them. &x201C;After dinner, I want to have a word with you alone in the study room. Just you and me,&x201D; Ku Jie said as he pointed at Lu Jingzhi and himself.
