Chapter 86: This was His Fate
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
The reporters who were present at the banquet hall for the press conference decided to leave immediately as they could not stand Huo Yuxi any longer.
It was really the worst situation that they had ever been in.
Very soon, all of the reporters vacated the banquet hall, only leaving Huo Yuxi and her four bodyguards behind in the banquet hall.
Huo Yuxi continued sitting on stage and started tearing up as she thought about what had just happened. Were these people blind? She was clearly the victim in this situation, yet why was nobody sympathizing with her?
&x201C;Miss Huo, do you want to go home now?&x201D; the bodyguards cautiously asked as they stood around her.
Although their employer had just suffered some injustice, they did not know why they felt pretty satisfied with the outcome of the press conference.
&x201C;Get lost! All of you can get out of my sight now!&x201D;
The bodyguards exchanged glances with one another and in the end, they could only stand up and helplessly walk out of the banquet hall.
Huo Yuxi could not help but sigh. This time, she had completely destroyed herself. There was no turning back.
After a short while, the video of Huo Yuxi&x2019;s press conference was uploaded and published on the internet. The netizens could not help but laugh when they saw the video.
[Please do not share or upload anymore news about this disgusting woman in future. Thank you!]
[Does she even know how stupid she actually is?]
[Please do not give any more attention and fame to an attention seeker like this. I used to like her and I was one of her loyal fans. Now, I just hate her to the core!]
[Huo Yuxi&x2019;s IQ has really allowed me to understand that such dim people really exist in this world.]
[Just get lost already! Garbage actress!]
Some of the netizens started dissing Huo Yuxi, while some others ignored her completely because they felt that it was a complete waste of time to talk about her.
This was the first time that the netizens had not linked Jiang Yuning to Huo Yuxi. After everything that has happened, Jiang Yuning suddenly seemed like an angel in comparison to Huo Yuxi.
What were Shen Yichen and Jiang Yuning doing at this time?
The two of them had watched the entire press conference live from the hotel directly opposite Royal Hotel. Guangying Media did not need to intervene at all.
After watching the live coverage of the entire press conference, Shen Yichen shook his head as he stared at Jiang Yuning. &x201C;I cannot believe that such a terrible person exists in this world. Right now, I really feel very sympathetic towards you.&x201D;
&x201C;She really outdid herself this time. Even if I were to really deal with her or set her up in future, the reporters would not believe her anymore,&x201D; Jiang Yuning said as she shrugged. &x201C;Since the show is over, we can leave now.&x201D;
Jiang Yuning no longer want to get involved in any matters relating to Huo Yuxi because she had already promised Gu Pingsheng that she would try her best to rebuild her reputation and therefore did not want to do anything that would further tarnish her reputation. Everything would have otherwise been pointless if the public still perceived her in a negative manner, even if she was already signed to Guangying Media.
Now that the relationship between Fu Yahui and Huo Yuxi was broken, it was also time for Jiang Yuning to decide and plan out how she was going to take back the eight hundred million yuan from Fu Yahui. She knew that if she wanted to expose Fu Yahui for who she really was, she had to be extremely careful with her plans in future.
At six o&x2019;clock in the evening, Lu Jingzhi stepped out of his office and quickly got into his car. He had a migraine from attending meeting after meeting for the entire day.
&x201C;Principal, I actually feel that you do not need to be so affected by their comments because they are all overly conservative in their views and refuse to acknowledge the merits of others even when it is displayed before them,&x201D; Secretary Ho said as he turned around to look at Lu Jingzhi. &x201C;Furthermore, they have always relied on us and asked for our help every time there is a special task. Will they only acknowledge our importance when they need us?&x201D;
&x201C;Keep quiet. You are too noisy,&x201D; Lu Jingzhi said as he rubbed his forehead.
&x201C;Today, Miss Jiang almost had to take the blame for something she did not do. However, I have heard that the matter has already been resolved.&x201D; Secretary Ho looked down at his watch and checked out the expression on Lu Jingzhi&x2019;s face before he continued, &x201C;Miss Jiang had also called earlier to inform you that she is fine and that you do not need to worry about her.&x201D;
Lu Jingzhi stared at the call history in his cell phone. He was silent for a short while before he said, &x201C;What can I do to make sure that she is protected from everyone who is trying to harm and hurt her?&x201D;
&x201C;I believe that Miss Jiang is not actually looking for your protection. What she really wants is&x2026;equality.&x201D;
Lu Jingzhi did not reply, which meant that he acknowledged and agreed with what Secretary Ho had just said.
However, Lu Jingzhi felt as though his heart was breaking apart because he had not held Jiang Yuning in his arms for almost two days.
Just as the driver was about to start driving, Lu Jingzhi suddenly received a phone call from Jiang Yuning. &x201C;Second brother, have you finished with your business meeting?&x201D;
&x201C;Yes. I am just about to go home now.&x201D;
&x201C;I can see your car from over here,&x201D; Jiang Yuning quickly replied. &x201C;I am waiting for you at the same place that you had previously picked me up from after work.&x201D;
&x201C;Stop the car,&x201D; Lu Jingzhi commanded the driver immediately before asking the driver to turn the car around to pick Jiang Yuning up.
Jiang Yuning was very low-key and she was wearing track pants and suit paired off with a baseball cap to try and conceal her identity. As soon as Lu Jingzhi&x2019;s car stopped in front of her, she quickly hopped into the car.
At this moment, Lu Jingzhi loosened a few of his shirt buttons, revealing his chest muscles that were hidden beneath his thin shirt. He was so muscular and sexy that Jiang Yuning could not take her eyes off him. &x201C;Was your meeting really tiring today?&x201D;
&x201C;Should you not have cried and complained to me about the grievances that you have suffered today as soon as you entered my car?&x201D; Lu Jingzhi asked as he held onto her hand.
&x201C;Why? Do you expect me to cry over Huo Yuxi? She is not worth it,&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied disdainfully. &x201C;You know that I am not easily affected by whatever she does. Therefore, I do not feel as though I have been wronged. If there ever comes a day when I feel as though I have suffered some injustice, you would definitely be the first person I will run to. It is not that I am reluctant or that I do not want to confide in you, but I simply cannot bring myself to feel miserable because of her.&x201D;
&x201C;Moreover, I have yet to even ask&x2026;what kind of business meeting goes on for the entire day? You look so exhausted right now.&x201D;
Lu Jingzhi could not help but hug Jiang Yuning tightly in his arms. He knew that he would not be able to find anyone else who would be as intelligent and adorable as her in this world.
Jiang Yuning hugged Lu Jingzhi tightly as she rested her head against his muscular chest.
Secretary Ho who was seated in front could not help but sigh.
Miss Jiang was destined to be the only one who would be able to control and hold the principal back, and the principal was only ever so gentle and vulnerable in front of Miss Jiang.
Earlier today, at the conference table, the principal was simply so cold and unapproachable.
It was seven o&x2019;clock in the evening and it was the time that Huo Yuxi and Lu Zongye had arranged in advance to meet.
Lu Zongye had also watched the entire video of Huo Yuxi&x2019;s press conference earlier in the day. This was his former lover. If he had been able to see through the person that she really was earlier, would he have been able to avoid ending up the way that he had right now?
Very soon, he arrived in front of Huo Yuxi&x2019;s apartment but to his surprise, what awaited him was not Huo Yuxi. He was greeted with a beating from Huo Yuxi&x2019;s bodyguards instead.
This was because Huo Yuxi had never intended to meet him and talk to him in the first place.
Lu Zongye only realized how dense and stupid he was upon feeling the hit of the first punch against his face. Huo Yuxi was already stupid enough, but he had not expected that he would be even stupider than Huo Yuxi.
&x201C;This is the divorce agreement between you and Huo Yuxi. Sign it immediately.&x201D; The bodyguards threw the divorce agreement at Lu Zongye, who was already wounded and curled up on the ground. &x201C;Do not approach or contact our young lady again in the future. You know that she is out of your reach right now, don&x2019;t you? Sign the divorce agreement and get out of here now!&x201D;
Lu Zongye sneered as he looked at the divorce agreement that was lying on the ground. He signed the divorce agreement with his wounded and shaky hand.
This was his fate and the most terrible outcome that he could have ever expected. He finally accepted his own destiny.
