Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
The internet was bustling with comments and posts from the netizens after the exposure of Lu Zongye&x2019;s identity.
[I heard that both Lu Zongye and his mother have been kicked out of the Lu family mansion. I cannot believe that she turned a random stray into a prince.]
[This is all so dramatic. There is too much information that I have to take in all at once.]
[The scumbag couple is finally paying the price for all the bad things they have done. They looked so desperate and helpless in all of the photographs that the reporters had taken of them today.]
[So, Huo Yuxi tried so hard, only to end up snatching an impostor from Jiang Yuning?]
[I guess retribution really hits as fast as a tornado.]
Millennium Entertainment would never have expected that Huo Yuxi&x2019;s attempt to marry into a prestigious and rich family would end up this way. No one could have expected that she would have chosen an impostor. Now that Huo Yuxi and Lu Zongye were officially married, they were linked together and her reputation in the whole of Luo City was taking a big hit. Millennium Entertainment had initially thought that it would be easy to clean up and restore Huo Yuxi&x2019;s reputation after she had married into the Lu family, which was why they had spent so much manpower and financial resources to back her up. However, it seemed like all their efforts were in vain.
Everything turned out to be totally unpredictable.
Millennium Entertainment made a judgment call immediately and decided that they should give up on Huo Yuxi.
After the havoc earlier, the atmosphere in the living room of the Lu family mansion turned very quiet.
Lu Zhengbai was extremely upset and still unable to adapt to and accept everything that had just happened. However, he also instructed the butler to prepare a bedroom for Chen Jingshu so that she could settle down in the Lu family mansion. Lu Zhengbai also requested for Jiang Yuning to stay back so that she could help Chen Jingshu to get used to life in the Lu family mansion.
&x201C;Miss Jiang, the second young master has requested for you to wait for him at the Lu family mansion as he will be coming over for dinner tonight. He will send you home after dinner,&x201D; the butler secretly informed Jiang Yuning after setting up the bedroom for Chen Jingshu. &x201C;You see, the situation right now is a mess and I am pretty sure that the second master would not be able to accept the facts so quickly&x2026;furthermore, Miss Chen is still unfamiliar with her new life here&x2026;&x201D;
&x201C;Alright butler. Do not worry, I understand what you are trying to say.&x201D; Jiang Yuning smiled as she showed the butler an &x2018;okay&x2019; gesture. &x201C;Butler, you were so cool today!&x201D;
&x201C;Everything had been arranged by the second young master. I knew that both the mother and son would definitely deny the fact to the end, and that was why I had to be heartless and decisive.&x201D;
Lu Jingzhi had already predicted everything that was going to happen, including Lu Zongye&x2019;s reaction.
He was her man indeed. He knew how to plan ahead and strategize.
&x201C;I am going to accompany Sister Jingshu now. Let me know if there is anything you need.&x201D;
&x201C;Fortunately, Miss Jiang was not the one who got married to that scumbag,&x201D; the butler lamented, feeling grateful that Jiang Yuning did not have to go through all that. However, he had no pity for Huo Yuxi at all as he felt that she had brought that suffering upon herself.
&x201C;Butler, please do not be so biased towards me,&x201D; Jiang Yuning said as she laughed out loud. The butler relaxed a little before walking away. Jiang Yuning then headed upstairs to take a look at Chen Jingshu&x2019;s new bedroom.
&x201C;So, this is how it feels like to be wealthy,&x201D; Chen Jingshu said as she looked around the luxurious room.
&x201C;I used to be very rich in the past,&x201D; Jiang Yuning said as she laughed. &x201C;Stop frowning! We should be celebrating because justice has been served.&x201D;
&x201C;Where do you think Lu Zongye would have taken Huo Yuxi??&x201D;
&x201C;He would not be able to control Huo Yuxi,&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied as she raised her brows. Jiang Yuning knew that Lu Zongye was merely a worm that Li Shutong and Huo Yuxi had been making use of all along.
It was only yesterday that the both of them had gotten married in such a luxurious wedding banquet, but today, the situation had turned 180&xB0;.
However, even if Huo Yuxi managed to get rid of Lu Zongye, she would no longer have a future in the entertainment industry. The news headlines today were all about her and it was not a pretty sight to behold.
This top actress&x2019; career had probably come to an end.
True enough, everything turned out just as Jiang Yuning had expected. As soon as Huo Yuxi got rid of Lu Zongye, she quickly returned to the mountain villa.
At this moment, the only person that she could count on was Fu Yahui.
&x201C;Mommy, what should I do now? What can I do? I cannot give birth to this child. If I do, I will be ruined for the rest of my life,&x201D; Huo Yuxi cried as she begged Fu Yahui for help. &x201C;Mommy, please help me.&x201D;
&x201C;You were the one who were so persistent and insisted on getting to Lu Zongye in the first place. You did not even hesitate to snatch Lu Zongye away from your own sister. What did you get in the end?&x201D; Fu Yahui felt that Huo Yuxi did not deserve her sympathy even though she was her stepdaughter.
&x201C;Mommy, I know that I was wrong. I really know what I did was wrong. You have to help me. Lu Zongye is looking for me right now and I am really afraid of him.&x201D;
&x201C;So, do you not want to have the baby anymore?&x201D; Fu Yahui asked as she looked at Huo Yuxi&x2019;s bulging belly. &x201C;You must have gone through an abortion before in the past. Otherwise, your uterus lining would not be so thin. The doctor had already said that if you undergo another abortion, it would be extremely difficult for you to get pregnant again in the future. Furthermore, going through so many abortions would also increase your risk of getting cervical cancer. Are you really sure that you want to get rid of the baby?&x201D;
&x201C;I&x2026;&x201D; Huo Yuxi was really scared at the moment.
However, she knew that she would not have the chance to marry into another rich and prestigious family if she did not abort the baby. Besides that, Lu Zongye would also be able to keep threatening her if she kept their baby.
&x201C;I am certain that I want to go through the abortion.&x201D;
&x201C;Alright then. I have another property in Luo City. You can go and hide there for the moment and I will arrange for you to have an abortion. Yuxi, are you really certain that this is what you want to do?&x201D;
Huo Yuxi nodded her head incessantly. The only thing that she wanted to do at that moment was to get rid of everything that linked her to Lu Zongye.
She used to think that she was in love and that everything was going perfectly for the both of them. However, as soon as she discovered Lu Zongye&x2019;s true identity, the only thing that she felt for him was disgust.
This showed how much everyone actually despised Lu Zongye, due to his personality and the things that he did in order to get what he wanted. Had he not been the young master of the Lu family, he would not have any friends at all.
&x201C;I hope that you will not regret your decision.&x201D;
Huo Yuxi really despised herself right now.
Despite having reached this point in her life, she still refused to give up on her dream of getting married into a rich and prestigious family.
However, she did not know that there would be some serious consequences from the decision that she had just made. Would her pain really be over just because she got rid of Lu Zongye?
No. Her career was already over and her body was going to suffer. At that point, when she finally suffered a mental breakdown, that would be the most terrible moment of her life&x2026;
Lu Zongye arrived at the mountain villa a short while later because the only people that he could still rely on was probably Huo Yuxi and her connection to Dongheng Enterprise.
However, Huo Yuxi had already left the mountain villa by then to hide out in Fu Yahui&x2019;s other residence. Therefore, Lu Zongye&x2019;s visit to the mountain villa had been futile.
However, Fu Yahui was not so heartless as to leave him standing outside and she graciously invited him into her villa. &x201C;Yuxi had not returned here at all. She must be afraid that you would be looking for her.&x201D;
&x201C;Mom, I am still your son-in-law and I am thus also connected to Dongheng Enterprise now. Are you really going to be that heartless to leave me out on the street?&x201D; Lu Zongye asked Fu Yahui shamelessly.
&x201C;You want to play games with me? You are not qualified!&x201D; Fu Yahui yelled before she took out her cell phone to call security. &x201C;Throw him out right now!&x201D;
Lu Zongye no longer had any power or money and he no longer had anyone that he could depend on.
He had arrived at his mother-in-law&x2019;s house only to be driven out once again. He clenched his fists, no longer able control his anger. &x201C;Tell Huo Yuxi that I will definitely retaliate and deal with her if she dares to abort my child.&x201D;
Lu Zongye then left the mountain villa, intending to look for the friends that used to be like his brothers.
They only treated him like a brother when he was wealthy and powerful!
