If the women of Luo City were already envious of Huo Yuxi because she had married into the Lu family, then it could be said that at that moment, all the women in the entire world would be jealous of Jiang Yuning because she was standing right next to Lu Jingzhi, and Lu Zongye could never be compared to him.
Lu Jingzhi was such a mysterious and legendary man. No one had ever seen him with any female companions around him and yet, he was attending the wedding dinner with Jiang Yuning tonight.
Wasn&x2019;t Jiang Yuning too glamorous?
She was the only one deemed qualified enough to stand by Lu Jingzhi&x2019;s side.
They must have had a very close and intimate relationship!
All the guests, including Huo Yuxi and her group of friends, looked at Jiang Yuning enviously.
They would never have expected that Lu Jingzhi would actually attend the event together with Jiang Yuning in such a glamorous manner. Weren&x2019;t they indirectly slapping Huo Yuxi in the face?
&x201C;Yuxi, why I do I feel so envious and jealous of Jiang Yuning right now?&x201D;
&x201C;Sister Yuxi, Jiang Yuning&x2026;does she have a very close relationship with the second young master of the Lu family?&x201D;
Huo Yuxi stared at her group of friends indignantly because she had never expected that Jiang Yuning could be so beautiful.
She was so beautiful that it was impossible not to feel jealous of her.
She had not expect Lu Jingzhi to protect Jiang Yuning. He was actually protecting the Jiang Yuning that she hated so much.
Very soon, Lu Jingzhi entered the banquet hall together with Jiang Yuning and then, the entire focus of the banquet hall was on Jiang Yuning.
She was young and confident and she looked so glamorous standing right next to Lu Jingzhi.
The reporters and paparazzi could not stop taking photographs of them.
How could she be here to get humiliated? It felt more likely that she was here to steal the spotlight!
&x201C;Look, Jiang Yuning&x2019;s dress is really beautiful.&x201D;
&x201C;If you compare Jiang Yuning to Huo Yuxi now, Huo Yuxi actually looks ten years older than Jiang Yuning. What is wrong with Lu Zongye&x2019;s taste?&x201D;
&x201C;When did Jiang Yuning become so beautiful?&x201D;
The guests that were in the banquet hall were bursting with excitement as they were all amazed at Jiang Yuning&x2019;s beauty. She really looked extremely elegant, youthful, and confident that night. In comparison, Huo Yuxi&x2019;s luxurious dress looked very exaggerated and old-fashioned.
Huo Yuxi was unhappy that Jiang Yuning had stolen all the attention from the guests and therefore, she grabbed Lu Zongye and then walked up to confront Jiang Yuning and Lu Jingzhi. She smiled at the two of them and then said, &x201C;Second brother, how did you and Yuning end up attending my wedding dinner together?&x201D;
&x201C;Yes, second brother&x2026;you would not usually bring a female companion along with you, so&x2026;&x201D; Lu Zongye felt extremely uncomfortable when he confronted both of them because in the past, he had never thought that Jiang Yuning could be so beautiful.
&x201C;I wanted to bring her along with me in the past, but I could not do so because of my identity and her status as your fianc&xE9;e. However, I no longer need to worry about it in future and I will be able to bring her wherever I want to,&x201D; Lu Jingzhi replied indifferently. &x201C;Don&x2019;t forget that I grew up with Yuning.&x201D;
Lu Zongye was suddenly at a loss for words.
He could feel the possessiveness in Lu Jingzhi&x2019;s words.
&x201C;Yuning, why did you not wear the dress that mommy had already prepared for you?&x201D; Huo Yuxi asked as she looked at Jiang Yuning&x2019;s dress enviously.
&x201C;Oh, that&x2019;s because it&x2019;s ugly.&x201D; Jiang Yuning could not help but smile as she held onto Lu Jingzhi&x2019;s arm. &x201C;Did you really think that I have no fashion sense or&x2026;that I don&x2019;t have a brain?&x201D;
After listening to Jiang Yuning&x2019;s words, the expression on Huo Yuxi&x2019;s face changed immediately. At this time, Fu Yahui had already walked over to join them and she was surprised as she stared at the two people standing together. &x201C;Yuning. Jingzhi.&x201D;
&x201C;Mommy, Yuning despises the dress that you had chosen for her&x2026;&x201D; Huo Yuxi complained as soon as Fu Yahui walked over, thinking that Fu Yahui would definitely take her side.
However, Fu Yahui did not give her any face but instead replied her coldly, &x201C;Weren&x2019;t you the one who told me to pick that dress for her?&x201D;
Huo Yuxi&x2019;s face turned green immediately and she could not even pretend to be happy.
No one cared about Huo Yuxi and Fu Yahui acted as though she did not see the change in her expression. Fu Yahui then held onto Jiang Yuning&x2019;s hand as she said gently, &x201C;Yuning, it is okay if you do not feel like playing the piano tonight. You look so beautiful. There are a lot of uncles and aunties here today that you have previously met when you were younger. You can ask Jingzhi to accompany you as you go around to greet them.&x201D;
&x201C;If I have said that I will do it, then I will definitely do it. But I hope that my elder sister will not mind when I steal all the limelight later,&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied playfully.
&x201C;You&x2026;&x201D; Huo Yuxi was so angered that she could not help but clench her fists.
&x201C;Let&x2019;s go.&x201D; Lu Jingzhi could not be bothered with Huo Yuxi and therefore brought Jiang Yuning away to greet the guests.
As Jiang Yuning was once the daughter of a very rich and prestigious family, she had been taught and educated well since she was young. Even though the Jiang family was currently bankrupt, she was still very generous, courteous and respectful when she spoke to the guests. All the guests, especially those who were from the older generation, were extremely pleased with her manners.
Huo Yuxi could never be compared to Jiang Yuning.
Li Shutong was from a lower-class family and she married upwards into the Lu family. Thus, she had already lost out on the elegance and poise that could only be found in those who were exposed to proper upbringing. It was the same for Huo Yuxi.
Anyone could tell that Huo Yuxi was not born into an extremely rich and prestigious family just by looking at the way that she carried herself.
The reporters and paparazzi could not stop taking photographs of Lu Jingzhi and Jiang Yuning and very soon, the news started spreading around the internet.
[Oh my god, is Jiang Yuning there to steal the show? How could she look more beautiful than the bride herself?]
[Jiang Yuning actually attended the wedding dinner with the legendary Lu Jingzhi! I am so jealous. He is so handsome!]
[I heard that Lu Jingzhi and Jiang Yuning were childhood friends that grew up together. It is not that surprising for the two of them to appear together.]
[Who is this Lu Jingzhi that everyone is talking about?]
[Don&x2019;t you even know who Lu Jingzhi is? Are you an alien?]
[Hahaha, I see that Huo Yuxi&x2019;s face has turned green with envy.]
[Well, Huo Yuxi brought this upon herself&x2026;]
Guangying Media was even more excessive because they posted a picture directly on their website with the caption, &x201C;The ultimate move is out.&x201D;
The photograph was one where Jiang Yuning was holding onto Lu Jingzhi&x2019;s arm and she had turned her head back to look at the camera. Only Lu Jingzhi&x2019;s back view was shown in the picture.
However, everyone was still filled with envy despite only his back view shown.
[Is this really Lu Jingzhi, the heir of the Lu family?]
[Wow, these two really match each other perfectly. Just get together already!]
[I have almost forgotten that the two of them were childhood friends. They really are a match made in heaven!]
[Jiang Yuning is actually really glamorous tonight!]
[So, what else do you have to show off, Huo Yuxi?]
Netizens started questioning and criticizing Huo Yuxi without any hesitation at all.
From the moment that Jiang Yuning stepped into the banquet hall, all the guests had their eyes fixed on Jiang Yuning instead of Huo Yuxi. Jiang Yuning was not only extremely beautiful, but she was also very cheerful and graceful. It was really a pleasure to watch her.
Furthermore, when she stood beside Lu Jingzhi, both of them had already captivated the hearts of everyone there. No one could say that Huo Yuxi was the centre of attention that night, with everyone there having already forgotten Huo Yuxi&x2019;s existence or even the fact that it was actually her wedding night.
Li Shutong was so annoyed that she grabbed Lu Zongye&x2019;s arm and pulled him aside. &x201C;Are you and Yuxi the ones getting married today or is this actually Jiang Yuning&x2019;s wedding? Why are you letting her walk around as though she owns the place?&x201D;
&x201C;There is nothing that I can do. Can&x2019;t you see that second brother is protecting her?&x201D; Lu Zongye said as he pointed his chin at the two who were talking to the other guests.
&x201C;What is wrong with your second brother?&x201D; Li Shutong removed her white gloves and said indignantly, &x201C;Didn&x2019;t Yuning say that she would steal the limelight from her elder sister when she starts playing the piano? Well, I guess it is time for us to see what kind of talent she actually has then.&x201D;
Li Shutong then walked away and approached Jiang Yuning and Lu Jingzhi directly. &x201C;Yuning, didn&x2019;t you come to give your elder sister a gift? Why don&x2019;t you perform for all of us right now?&x201D;
After all, Jiang Yuning had not achieved much throughout the past few years and no one had ever seen or heard Jiang Yuning play the piano.
