Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
In fact, Jiang Yuning had already displayed her talent in playing the piano when she had just entered the entertainment industry. She played the role of young pianist, Man Zhen, in the youth drama
At that time, she was able to audition for and get the lead role for the youth drama because she could play the piano very well.
After the drama was broadcasted, it gained a lot of attention and although the plot of the drama was unfinished in the end, Jiang Yuning gained a lot of attention for the piano pieces that she supposedly played in the drama. However, when she was interviewed for her role in the drama, she was criticized and labeled shameless when she revealed that she personally played all the piano pieces featured in the drama.
At that time, no matter how much she tried to explain and prove herself, no one had believed her and the matter was eventually forgotten after a long time.
&x201C;Is Jiang Yuning really going to play the piano for Huo Yuxi?&x201D;
&x201C;She had already promised her that she would do so. Would she be lying?&x201D;
&x201C;But does she really know how to play the piano? She was criticized and her reputation was also at stake in the past because of this issue. Do you remember?&x201D;
The guests present in the banquet hall started whispering amongst themselves, but Jiang Yuning merely looked at Li Shutong as she smiled. &x201C;Okay, sure.&x201D;
&x201C;The piano is right there,&x201D; Li Shutong said as she pointed at the piano that was placed in the centre of the banquet hall. &x201C;You can go ahead and dedicate a beautiful song to your elder sister and your brother-in-law.&x201D;
Jiang Yuning snorted before she turned around to look at Lu Jingzhi. She gestured to him to calm down and she assured him that everything will be okay.
Lu Jingzhi had never doubted her ability and he simply chose a spot to sit at so he could watch her play the piano.
Subsequently, Jiang Yuning stood up and greeted everyone that she walked past as she made her way to the white grand piano.
Everyone started gathering around, holding glasses of champagne as they were expecting to watch a good show.
Some of the guests quickly took out their cell phones and turned on the camera to start recording Jiang Yuning.
&x201C;Start playing already!&x201D;
Jiang Yuning sat down in front of the piano and placed her long and slender fingers on the piano keys. She had never intended to perform a song for Huo Yuxi and Lu Zongye.
&x201C;What is wrong? What are you waiting for?&x201D;
She&x2026;was doing this for herself.
Jiang Yuning did not care even though Li Shutong kept provoking and pressuring her. Instead, she closed her eyes and started playing the piano gracefully.
&x201C;Oh my god! She is playing &x2018;Croatian Rhapsody&x2019;, the masterpiece by the genius pianist, Maksim Mrvica!&x201D;
One of the guests exclaimed as soon as he heard the prelude to Jiang Yuning&x2019;s repertoire.
Jiang Yuning glanced at the man who had just exclaimed out loud. The man tried to hide the expression on his face but he could not calm himself down.
The song was very passionate and full of rhythm. All the guests were dazzled and shocked when they saw Jiang Yuning hitting the correct notes so gracefully as she played the piano.
Of course, this piece was not as difficult as the other masterpiece by Maksim Mrvica named &x2018;Flight of the Bumblebee&x2019;. However, Jiang Yuning chose to play &x2018;Croatian Rhapsody&x2019; because of the message she wanted to send to Huo Yuxi and Lu Zongye.
At that moment, all that could be heard in the entire banquet hall was the beautiful melody that Jiang Yuning was playing on the piano. This was the first time that anyone, including Lu Jingzhi, had seen Jiang Yuning play the piano in public.
Lu Jingzhi had only heard the sound of her playing the piano outside her room in the past, but he had never personally seen her play the piano before.
Upon seeing her performance, his heart seemed to be beating as fast as she was hitting the keys on the piano. He was excited to hear her play.
This was his woman and for a moment, he selfishly wanted to lock Jiang Yuning up because he did not want anyone else to see her beauty and talent.
In just a matter of three minutes, all the guests who had expected Jiang Yuning to make a fool out of herself were instead shocked to see her play the piano so beautifully.
People would subconsciously praise anything that was genuinely good.
&x201C;Wow, this is really good music&x2026;&x201D;
Some of the guests sighed as soon as Jiang Yuning hit the last note on the piano and this was immediately followed by a loud applause.
Those who knew how to play the piano instantly knew that Jiang Yuning was indeed talented, while those who did not understand the piano could tell that it was not a song that could be easily played by anyone.
Jiang Yuning continued sitting in front of the piano even after she had finished playing the song.
At this time, Huo Yuxi suddenly stood up and smiled at Jiang Yuning. &x201C;Yuning, my dear sister, I would really like to thank you for playing such a beautiful song just for me and your brother-in-law.&x201D;
As soon as Huo Yuxi spoke, many of the guests looked up at her in surprise.
Jiang Yuning laughed and she could not help but shrug her shoulders. &x201C;You do not need to thank me.&x201D;
&x201C;Is Huo Yuxi a fool? &x2018;Croatian Rhapsody&x2019; expresses music about war and starting a new life&x2026;didn&x2019;t she receive a music award in the past? Does she not even know the meaning behind the song that Jiang Yuning has just played?&x201D;
&x201C;How could the song that Jiang Yuning just played be considered a blessing? She is declaring war!&x201D;
&x201C;But Jiang Yuning is really talented musically. Maksim Mrvica&x2019;s song is not easy to play at all!&x201D;
&x201C;Judging from Jiang Yuning&x2019;s superb piano skills that she has just shown us, it is obvious that she is very well-versed in art. The piece that she has just played is not something that could be practiced and perfected overnight. However, I am really extremely curious. Didn&x2019;t Huo Yuxi claim that she was well-versed in music in the past? How could she turn out to be such an embarrassment?&x201D;
The guests who were sitting around Jiang Yuning could not help but laugh at and make fun of Huo Yuxi.
She actually treated the provocation as a blessing.
Only Huo Yuxi would do that.
And she actually embarrassed herself in front of all the guests in the banquet hall.
Jiang Yuning was not surprised that Huo Yuxi did not understand the music at all. This was because the Huo family used to be just average until Fu Yahui pumped in all the money that belonged to the Jiang family into the Huo family business, eventually developing Dongheng Enterprise.
Huo Yuxi&x2019;s face was extremely pale because she was so embarrassed.
Lu Zongye could no longer stand it and thus came forward and tried to protect Huo Yuxi. He looked at Jiang Yuning and said, &x201C;What are you trying to say? Today should be the happiest day of our lives for your elder sister and I. We are already happily married, so can you stop your nonsense already?&x201D;
Everyone stared as Lu Zongye stepped forward and started questioning Jiang Yuning.
At this time, Lu Jingzhi suddenly stepped up and said in a low voice, &x201C;Come over here, Yuning.&x201D;
Majestic. Possessive. At this moment, Lu Jingzhi&x2019;s voice was very commanding and everyone who heard it was stunned.
Jiang Yuning obediently stood up from the piano chair and walked towards Lu Jingzhi.
Lu Jingzhi then said in a very serious tone, &x201C;Are they still trying to bully you even though I am standing right here?&x201D;
All the women present felt like screaming out&x2026;
Damn, he was too dashing.
Lu Jingzhi, are you casting your own brother aside?
&x201C;How could they possibly?&x201D; Jiang Yuning said as she took the opportunity to hold onto Lu Jingzhi&x2019;s arm. She turned around and stared at Lu Zongye as she continued, &x201C;Since you have invited me here to play the piano for you, I should naturally be able to choose whatever song I want to play. After all, this is the wedding dinner of a scumbag couple. If I want to retaliate and take revenge, I can do whatever I want to. What do you mean by asking me to stop my nonsense? Have some decency. Everyone here today knows exactly how your wedding came to be in the first place.&x201D;
&x201C;Jiang Yuning&x2026;&x201D; Lu Zongye&x2019;s eyes were red and he wanted to step forward to hit Jiang Yuning.
However, he was afraid to make a move because the tall and sturdy Lu Jingzhi was standing right next to Jiang Yuning.
&x201C;Zongye, forget it,&x201D; Huo Yuxi said as she held onto Lu Zongye&x2019;s arm. &x201C;Just let her be.&x201D;
When Jiang Yuning saw that Huo Yuxi was being gracious, she quickly looked at Huo Yuxi&x2019;s lower belly and asked, &x201C;Elder sister, shouldn&x2019;t your tummy be hurting badly at this time?&x201D;
&x201C;Yuning, I know that the both of us have let you down in the past. However, can you not just give us your blessing since we are already married now?&x201D;
&x201C;I could definitely give you my blessing,&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied. &x201C;However, did you even spare a thought for my feelings when you tried time and time again to humiliate me, or when you prepared the ugly dress for me, or even when you forced me to play the piano for you?&x201D;
&x201C;You want to treat me like a fool?&x201D;
&x201C;Do you really think you are worthy?&x201D;
