After hanging up on the call with Ku Jie, Jiang Yuning stared at her reflection in the mirror before taking a deep breath.
She did not know why she felt so nervous that it was as though her heart was about to fall out. She had attended many big events before but this would be the first time that she would be attending such a big event with Lu Jingzhi.
She knew that this it was going to be a memorable and glamorous moment for her, but yet she felt troubled because she did not want to cause Lu Jingzhi any unnecessary trouble.
However, she knew for sure that if Lu Jingzhi had arranged for this to happen, he would have had everything under his control.
If that was the case, then&x2026;
She should just relax and enjoy the amazing night that she had been planning for so long.
After all, Huo Yuxi and her group of supporters were all waiting to humiliate her.
As the time for the wedding dinner came closer, Fu Yahui could not help herself from calling Jiang Yuning with a sense of urgency. &x201C;Why haven&x2019;t I seen you yet? What time are you planning to arrive at the dinner? Do you need me to come and pick you up?&x201D;
&x201C;No, mom. You can be rest assured that I will be there before the dinner starts,&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied quietly.
&x201C;Remember to doll up so that you look presentable. Today is your elder sister&x2019;s big day after all.&x201D;
Jiang Yuning was too lazy to reply and she simply hung up the phone directly.
At that time, Fu Yahui also had a very impatient look on her face. After contacting Jiang Yuning for that period of time, she felt that Jiang Yuning was getting more and more disobedient.
She was arrogant and wilful.
It must have been because she had been in the entertainment industry for so many years that she was getting more and more disrespectful.
&x201C;Co-mother-in-law, why isn&x2019;t Yuning here yet?&x201D; At this moment, Li Shutong, who was wearing a champagne-colored dress, suddenly approached Fu Yahui and asked. &x201C;If she is not going to come, she should have told us earlier so that we can make some other arrangements instead.&x201D;
&x201C;She is already on her way&x2026;&x201D; Fu Yahui set her emotions aside and answered flatly.
&x201C;That is great then. I thought that she was going to back out because she might not be able to accept the fact that her elder sister is already married to Zongye&x2026;&x201D;
&x201C;She did not mention that she is going to back out.&x201D;
Li Shutong smiled and quickly appeased Fu Yahui. &x201C;Co-mother-in-law, do not be angry. We should sit down and talk to Yuning when she arrives.&x201D;
Fu Yahui snorted before turning around and walking away from Li Shutong.
&x201C;What are you mad about? After all, you were the one who had personally arranged for your own biological daughter to play the piano for your stepdaughter&x2019;s wedding,&x201D; Li Shutong said as she laughed. &x201C;Everyone is waiting to watch Jiang Yuning make a fool out of herself and who was the one who caused it?&x201D;
Fu Yahui was extremely mad and so went to the garden in the hotel to take a breather. However, when she was there, she heard Huo Yuxi&x2019;s friends from Millennium Entertainment talking about and making fun of Jiang Yuning. &x201C;If Jiang Yuning really showed up today, she will definitely make a fool out of herself.&x201D;
&x201C;Is she really coming tonight? Does she not have any self-respect? Her former fianc&xE9; was snatched away by her stepsister and she is still going to play the piano for them?&x201D;
&x201C;Let us wait and see Jiang Yuning making a fool out of herself. Yuxi told me that she personally picked out the dress that Jiang Yuning is going to wear tonight. I believe that she will definitely be the joke of the night.&x201D;
The expression on Fu Yahui&x2019;s face got even uglier after hearing what they had just said. The reason why she had asked Jiang Yuning to perform playing the piano for Huo Yuxi&x2019;s wedding was because she wanted the public and media to assume that the two sisters had a good and amicable relationship. Secondly, she wanted Jiang Yuning to show off some of her outstanding musical talent. She had never expected Huo Yuxi to actually use her like this.
As she thought about it, Fu Yahui took out her cell phone and called Jiang Yuning. &x201C;Yuning, I was wrong to force you to play the piano for Yuxi. If you do not want to, you do not have to attend her wedding dinner tonight.&x201D;
&x201C;Why? Mom, have you finally realized that you were going to make a fool out of me?&x201D; Jiang Yuning asked as she smiled.
&x201C;I would also be embarrassed if you were to suffer any form of embarrassment,&x201D; Fu Yahui quickly replied.
&x201C;Then I would definitely have to attend the dinner then. See you in half an hour,&x201D; Jiang Yuning said before hanging up the phone.
That was because she had already seen second brother&x2019;s black car driving in through the gate.
The driver quickly got down and opened the car door for her. Jiang Yuning lifted her dress up a little before she got into the car and sat down beside Lu Jingzhi.
Lu Jingzhi turned around to look at her and when he saw Jiang Yuning who was all dolled up, he could not help but to reach his hand out, pulling her into a hug before saying, &x201C;You look so beautiful tonight.&x201D;
Jiang Yuning leaned her head against Lu Jingzhi&x2019;s shoulder and smiled before replying, &x201C;And you are still so handsome, my idol.&x201D;
&x201C;Make sure you enjoy all the glory and attention that will be on you. Your idol&x2026;will only serve you alone,&x201D; Lu Jingzhi whispered into Jiang Yuning&x2019;s ear as he kissed her gently on her neck.
Jiang Yuning started blushing as put her hands around Lu Jingzhi&x2019;s neck. &x201C;I am so nervous but excited at the same time because I would be able to stay by your side and occupy your full attention the entire night.&x201D;
Lu Jingzhi ran his fingers through her hair and replied, &x201C;It is not only for tonight. As long as you are alive, I will always be by your side as long as you want me to.&x201D;
The both of them were extremely intimate even on the way to the hotel and it took all of Lu Jingzhi&x2019;s strength and effort to resist the temptation of kissing her soft and delicate lips.
At that moment, Hilton Hotel was overflowing with guests who were here to attend Huo Yuxi&x2019;s wedding dinner.
The reporters and paparazzi arranged by Millennium Entertainment to cover the event were also all waiting in place.
Everyone was extremely curious as the wedding dinner was about to begin and yet, no one had seen Jiang Yuning yet.
&x201C;Yuxi, do you think that maybe your stepsister has changed her mind and does not dare to come now?&x201D;
&x201C;Who cares if Jiang Yuning comes or not? Today is Sister Yuxi&x2019;s big day and I have never seen a bride who is more beautiful than she is today. She looks so exquisite in her wedding gown!&x201D;
&x201C;That&x2019;s right, Sister Yuxi. How can that little shrewd, Jiang Yuning, ever be compared to you?&x201D;
Huo Yuxi and her group of friends continued making fun of Jiang Yuning and they were waiting for her to finally appear so that she would make a fool out of herself.
Wasn&x2019;t the internet already overflowing with criticisms for Jiang Yuning anyway?
The netizens had commented that Jiang Yuning was useless and had no self-respect because she was actually still performing for Huo Yuxi and Lu Zongye after the way they had bullied her.
They did not know what she was thinking.
Just as everyone was curious and waiting for Jiang Yuning to arrive at the scene, a young boy suddenly ran into the hotel lobby and started screaming, &x201C;Jiang Yuning is here&x2026;Jiang Yuning is here&x2026;&x201D;
Everyone turned around because they were all attracted to the exaggerated body language displayed by the young boy. The young boy then continued speaking, &x201C;Jiang Yuning did not come alone and she looks so beautiful. Go and have a look.&x201D;
The guests quickly rushed to the main entrance out of curiosity. Huo Yuxi and her group of friends also followed the crowd and started heading towards the main entrance.
They did not believe that Jiang Yuning would ever be beautiful.
Most of the guests had already crowded outside the entrance of the hotel and at this time, Jiang Yuning had just gotten out of the car. She looked extremely glamorous and she was holding onto Lu Jingzhi&x2019;s arms as she walked down the red carpet. Eight tall and physically strong bodyguards walked behind them to protect them.
&x201C;Oh my god&x2026;this is such a perfect combination. Jiang Yuning looks so beautiful tonight.&x201D;
&x201C;Isn&x2019;t that the heir of the Lu family? Why is Jiang Yuning attending the wedding dinner together with Lu Jingzhi?&x201D;
&x201C;Didn&x2019;t you know? The Lu family and the Jiang family used to be extremely close in the past. That is why Jiang Yuning grew up together with Lu Jingzhi and Lu Zongye. Although they used to shun one another because of her engagement with Lu Zongye, they can finally be as close as they want to now that Lu Zongye is already married to someone else!&x201D;
&x201C;I am so envious of Jiang Yuning.&x201D;
Jiang Yuning looked around at the guests who were all crowding around to get a glimpse of Lu Jingzhi and herself. Her lips slowly curved into a smile and she confidently walked to the end of the red carpet as she held onto Lu Jingzhi&x2019;s arm. The guests naturally made way for them to pass as they walked by because they knew how important this guest was.
No one dared to offend him!
However, what was most important was the way Lu Jingzhi protected Jiang Yuning that night. The both of them stuck closely together and everyone knew that only a very limited number of people were able to get Lu Jingzhi&x2019;s attention like that.
Jiang Yuning was the first and only female companion that Lu Jingzhi had ever brought around him.
Ah! All the female guests present at the wedding dinner were green with envy.
