&x201C;I believe that you will be able to resolve anything that comes your way,&x201D; Shen Yichen said. &x201C;The Lu family&x2019;s heir, Lu Jingzhi, is your lover, you have the well-established Guangying Media backing you up, and you also the founder of X Society, Ku Jie, as your brother. Why are you still frowning?&x201D;
&x201C;I am just disgusted by some people,&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied.
The scandal involving Lu Zongye and Huo Yuxi had just happened a few days ago. Right now, the internet was still filled with articles and photographs of them at their most depressing moments. However, despite all of that, Huo Yuxi still wanted to hold a press conference to announce her retirement from the entertainment industry. This time, she did not even inform Millennium Entertainment or Fu Yahui about her intention to hold a press conference. This was because she had a new solid backing, which was none other than her father, Huo Zhendong.
Huo Zhendong had asked his daughter not to be depressed and had already given her the privilege to do anything that she wanted to do.
Was she really going to depend purely on her father&x2019;s power?
Since the press conference was set to begin at two o&x2019;clock in the afternoon, Huo Yuxi arrived earlier and rested in the hotel&x2019;s VIP lounge.
Huo Zhendong had already arranged for a bodyguard to protect and look after her. Therefore, she would not be afraid even if Lu Zongye had decided to come to the hotel and make a scene.
She hated Jiang Yuning so much because she did not even have the chance to recuperate after her abortion surgery just so she could get back at Jiang Yuning. She finally realized that this world was an extremely cruel place.
The news of Huo Yuxi&x2019;s press conference spread like wildfire as soon as Ku Jie uploaded the news on X Society. By ten o&x2019;clock in the morning, everyone on the internet had already seen or heard of the news. When Millennium Entertainment and Fu Yahui heard about it, they were extremely shocked and furious.
What was Huo Yuxi up to again?
As soon as she saw the news, Fu Yahui quickly took out her cell phone and called Huo Yuxi immediately. &x201C;Why had you not discussed with me before deciding to hold a press conference? Do you no longer regard or have any respect for me as your mother?&x201D;
&x201C;Mommy, I was so uncomfortable and depressed after the abortion, but even as I was lying on the hospital bed, all you cared about was your own biological daughter. Did you care about my feelings then? Did you care if I was dead or alive? You did not, nor did you show any genuine concern for me at all. Therefore, I no longer want anything to do with you and I do not want to depend on you anymore. Since you do not want to take care of me anyway, I think this is the best way for us,&x201D; Huo Yuxi replied, full of hatred towards Fu Yahui.
&x201C;What kind of press conference are you holding? What are you intending to do?&x201D; Fu Yahui asked, full of anger and frustration.
&x201C;That is none of your business.&x201D; After saying those words, Huo Yuxi did not hesitate to hang up on Fu Yahui even though she was still scolding her over the phone.
She no longer needed to tolerate or allow anyone else to insult or bully her in the future.
In order to get rid of all of her fears, Huo Yuxi took the initiative to call Lu Zongye after hanging up on Fu Yahui&x2019;s call. &x201C;Don&x2019;t you want to see me? Come to my apartment at seven o&x2019;clock tonight. We will talk then.&x201D;
&x201C;Did you really abort my baby?&x201D; Lu Zongye asked Huo Yuxi over the phone.
&x201C;Do you really think you are worthy enough for me to keep carrying your baby? Of course I have already aborted your baby,&x201D; Huo Yuxi replied immediately.
Lu Zongye kicked the trash can in his hotel room in anger and yelled over the phone, &x201C;Alright then, Huo Yuxi. We will meet at seven o&x2019;clock tonight and we will finally make a clean break once and for all.&x201D;
Huo Yuxi sneered before hanging up the phone.
What else was she afraid of? She was fearless at the moment.
After arriving back at Luo City, Shen Yichen dropped Jiang Yuning back at the villa.
After working hard for the past two days for the filming, Shen Yichen wanted Jiang Yuning to rest well after taking a long hot bath. He would then pick her up in the afternoon to attend Huo Yuxi&x2019;s press conference at Royal Hotel.
After all, she needed to be well-rested to enjoy the drama.
Jiang Yuning agreed and once she got into the villa, she soaked in a hot bath to wash away all of her exhaustion. However, just as she was preparing to blow dry her hair, she suddenly received a phone call from Fu Yahui.
&x201C;Mom, what is the matter?&x201D;
&x201C;Did you know that your elder sister is going to hold a press conference today?&x201D; Fu Yahui asked immediately. &x201C;Your elder sister thinks that the reason she has ended up this way today is all because of you, and she believes that I was your accomplice. She is really getting out of hand nowadays.&x201D;
&x201C;Mom, have you ever thought about why Huo Yuxi dares to do this?&x201D; Jiang Yuning asked Fu Yahui as she leaned back against her chair. &x201C;Who had given her the courage to do this?&x201D;
&x201C;It must be because her father transferred three percent of his shares in Dongheng Enterprise over to her!&x201D; Fu Yahui blurted out as soon as it crossed her mind.
Jiang Yuning frowned. She was extremely upset because Dongheng Enterprise was built with the money belonging to the Jiang family.
However, she knew that she had to calm down because she could not break down and cry at this crucial moment. After a short pause, Jiang Yuning quietly replied, &x201C;Then nothing can stop her anymore, mom. She is a rich man&x2019;s daughter who can do anything that she wants now.&x201D;
&x201C;Rich man&x2019;s daughter? Who gave her that right? I will make sure to attend her press conference later in the afternoon and see what she has got to say for herself.&x201D;
Jiang Yuning felt extremely repulsed and disgusted with Fu Yahui and so, she took the initiative to hang up on her.
Who gave her the right to rob the Jiang family then?
Therefore, Huo Yuxi and Fu Yahui could not blame her for what she was about to do. After all, when she thought about her father&x2019;s disappearance, when she thought about the Jiang family&x2019;s bankruptcy, when she thought about how ill her grandfather was, and when she thought about how difficult it was to get back the eight hundred million yuan that belonged to second brother, she felt her heart aching as though there were a thousand holes in it.
Since Fu Yahui was also going to attend the press conference, then all she had to do was pick a good spot to watch the drama that was going to unfold.
As soon as she thought about this, Jiang Yuning went into the walk-in closet and changed into a long and beautiful red dress.
She was also very curious to witness how the press conference would go.
Huo Yuxi&x2019;s press conference started at two o&x2019;clock sharp in Royal Hotel&x2019;s banquet hall.
The reporters and media crowded the entire banquet hall. Everyone wanted to find out why Huo Yuxi decided to hold a press conference.
Subsequently, under the protection of four bodyguards, Huo Yuxi, who was dressed in a long black dress, finally walked up to the stage and stood in front of the desk with the microphone set up on it. Compared to her previous image, she looked very simple today. After sitting down, she held onto the microphone and started addressing the media.
&x201C;Hello to all the reporters and media present here today. I am Huo Yuxi.&x201D;
&x201C;The reason I am holding a press conference today is to announce something very important. I am solemnly declaring my retirement from the entertainment industry. I will not be involved in the entertainment industry anymore in the coming future.&x201D;
After her statement, all the reporters starting bombarding her with questions.
Was this press conference held to announce her retirement from the entertainment industry?
&x201C;However, before I quit officially, there are a few things that I would like to say. I would like to &x2018;thank&x2019; my stepsister, my stepmother, and also my agency, Millennium Entertainment for pushing me and forcing me to a dead end.&x201D;
&x201C;First of all, I would like to thank my agency, Millennium Entertainment. I want to thank them for cultivating me and moulding me to become the person that I am today. At the same time, I would also like to thank you for tossing me aside and abandoning me as soon as I was in trouble. Someone once told me that the entertainment circle was a very cruel place. I was skeptical and scornful at that time, but right now, I am completely convinced because my agency abandoned me as soon as they felt like I had already lost my value.&x201D;
&x201C;Secondly, I would like to thank my stepmother, Fu Yahui. When I was physically and mentally wounded, she did not comfort me or do anything for me, but all she did was to continue favoring and defending her biological daughter instead. To her, a stepdaughter is someone to be used and trampled on. You finally got what you wished for. I have no other choice but to give up on my passion and acting career. You are not worthy to be anyone&x2019;s mother!&x201D;
&x201C;Thirdly and most importantly, I would like to thank my stepsister, Jiang Yuning. As everyone knows, my wedding day was just three days ago. However, the day after my wedding, the news that my husband was not a member of the Lu family was exposed and spread throughout the internet. How could there be such a coincidence? That is why I have to thank my beloved stepsister. She had known about Lu Zongye&x2019;s real identity all along, but had deliberately concealed the truth and only revealed it to the public after I was officially married to Lu Zongye. She colluded with the real Lu family member and staged a good show just so that she could put me through hell and teach me a lesson. How could anyone have such an evil heart? Jiang Yuning, you are really good at taking revenge and putting on an act. I really wonder how many more people you will continue deceiving in future.&x201D;
