However, he would not admit defeat so easily.
He would definitely let Huo Yuxi experience what it felt like to be played like a fool.
Later that evening, Huo Yuxi, who had already been criticized and insulted by netizens all over the internet, returned to the mountain villa as though nothing had happened.
Fu Yahui was in disbelief as soon as she saw Huo Yuxi entering her living room. &x201C;Are you kidding me? Do you still have the guts to come and face me? You had better get out of my house right now.&x201D;
&x201C;Mommy, no matter what has happened today, you are still my stepmother and I will always be your legal stepdaughter. Therefore, it is only natural for me to live here with you, aside from the fact that dad has already given me his approval to continue living here. Anyway, I will be recuperating at home for the next few days but once I feel well enough, I will be starting work at Dongheng Enterprise. Dad said that he has already arranged a position for me in the company. I am just informing you right now, lest you be surprised.&x201D;
Huo Yuxi walked upstairs and went into her bedroom after that, acting as though nothing had happened.
Fu Yahui stared at Huo Yuxi as she walked up the stairs and her face turned red with anger. She quickly took out her cell phone and immediately called her husband. &x201C;Huo Zhendong, what are you trying to do now? Were you the one who gave her the courage to insult and humiliate me in public today?&x201D;
&x201C;Yahui, she is just a child. Why are you fighting with her over these ridiculous matters?&x201D;
&x201C;Alright then. Let us forget about what happened at the press conference today. Then, who gave you the right to give Huo Yuxi a position in Dongheng Enterprise? Do you not think that you should have discussed this with me before making such a big decision?&x201D; Fu Yahui asked angrily. &x201C;Have you forgotten who the biggest shareholder in Dongheng Enterprise is?&x201D;
&x201C;Why are you bringing this matter up again? No matter what happens, Yuxi is still our daughter. Therefore, it is only reasonable for me to offer her a position in Dongheng Enterprise since she has nowhere else to go. Dongheng Enterprise will be passed down to her in the future anyway so you should not make a big deal out of this,&x201D; Huo Zhendong replied impatiently.
&x201C;You think that Dongheng Enterprise will be passed down to her? Not necessarily! Do not forget that I still have a biological daughter!&x201D; Fu Yahui said before hanging up the phone immediately. She was so angry and agitated that she sat on the sofa for a long time before she could finally relax and calm herself down.
Her husband was getting more and more bold recently and he seemed to have forgotten that she was the reason why Dongheng Enterprise could get to where it was today!
It was ten o&x2019;clock in the middle of the night and the sound of the waves hitting the beach could be heard all the way from the villa.
After taking a shower, Jiang Yuning walked out of the bathroom and saw Lu Jingzhi, who was wearing a black robe, answering a call secretly by the bedroom window.
Jiang Yuning sneaked over and hugged him from the back before asking, &x201C;Who are you talking to? Why are you being so secretive?&x201D;
&x201C;Someone called to tell me that Lu Zongye approached him, asking for a loan of thirty million yuan,&x201D; Lu Jingzhi replied as soon as he put his cell phone away.
&x201C;Why does he need so much money?&x201D; Jiang Yuning asked as she raised her brows. She thought that Lu Zongye would have given up by now.
&x201C;I have heard that Huo Yuxi had arranged for people to beat Lu Zongye up and to also force him to sign the divorce agreement,&x201D; Lu Jingzhi said as he held Jiang Yuning&x2019;s hand and led her to bed.
Lu Zongye&x2019;s anger was therefore directed at Huo Yuxi this time.
&x201C;He has already found a male escort that he wants to dress up and package nicely, so that he can set a trap for Huo Yuxi.&x201D;
Jiang Yuning got goose bumps immediately after listening to Lu Jingzhi&x2019;s words. It was indeed true that the person who best understood Huo Yuxi in this world was none other than Lu Zongye.
Huo Yuxi had always dreamed of marrying into a rich and prestigious family. If she did get caught playing around and dating a male escort, her dream of marrying into a wealthy family would have been gone for good.
It was such an evil plan.
After all, how many more times could Huo Yuxi afford to harm her own body?
Jiang Yuning listened to Lu Jingzhi as he explained the contents of his phone call and she could not help but to curl up against Lu Jingzhi. &x201C;Second brother, why did the other party call you when Lu Zongye tried to borrow money from him?&x201D;
Lu Jingzhi ran his fingers through Jiang Yuning&x2019;s hair and then caressed her shoulder gently. &x201C;Stop asking questions that you are not supposed to ask, okay?&x201D;
In fact, Jiang Yuning knew that Lu Jingzhi had already said that he was going to seek justice for her. However, she had not expected him to use all sort of means to make sure that he got her the justice that she deserved.
&x201C;Go to sleep,&x201D; Lu Jingzhi said gently, not wanting Jiang Yuning to overthink anything. Therefore, he patted her on the head gently, but Jiang Yuning quickly climbed on top of him.
&x201C;You have not been intimate with me for the past two days. Don&x2019;t you want me?&x201D;
Lu Jingzhi lifted Jiang Yuning&x2019;s chin and stared her in the eye as he asked seductively, &x201C;Are you feeling itchy?&x201D;
&x201C;Then you are asking for it.&x201D; Lu Jingzhi turned her around and pressed her under his body. Initially, he wanted her to have a good rest because she had not been resting enough as she had been working hard for the past two days. However, Jiang Yuning was courting trouble and seducing him voluntarily.
The atmosphere in the bedroom became very intense almost immediately. It seemed as though Jiang Yuning could never get enough of Lu Jingzhi. Whenever she looked at Lu Jingzhi&x2019;s body, she wanted to touch and hug him to quench her thirst.
However, Jiang Yuning unexpectedly came up with a high fever in the middle of the night.
Lu Jingzhi had to get out of bed to call Sister Liang before he managed to find the fever medicine for Jiang Yuning.
Jiang Yuning was wrapped up in the quilt as she looked at Lu Jingzhi miserably as he prepared the medication for her.
&x201C;Second brother&x2026;I do not want to take the medicine. I do not like the bitterness&x2026;&x201D;
&x201C;Open your mouth&x2026;&x201D; Lu Jingzhi sat at the edge of the bed and stared at Jiang Yuning with a serious expression on his face.
Jiang Yuning looked up at Lu Jingzhi and she could only helplessly open her mouth to allow Lu Jingzhi to place the medicine in her mouth.
However, in the next second, she widened her eyes in surprised when Lu Jingzhi drank the water first, before he held her face in his hands and started feeding her the water through his own mouth.
Jiang Yuning swallowed both the medicine and water immediately without any trouble at all. For a moment, she even felt that there was a hint of sweetness in the water.
When she looked up at Lu Jingzhi, she saw the water droplets creating a glimmering effect as they dripped down from the corner of Lu Jingzhi&x2019;s mouth, all the way down his throat.
Oh my god!
She was going to die. He was so sexy.
Why was her idol seducing her even at this moment when she was already sick? She felt as though her heart was about to pop out of her chest.
&x201C;Is it still bitter?&x201D;
Jiang Yuning quickly shook her head before replying, &x201C;No, it is sweet.&x201D;
&x201C;Your mouth is sweet,&x201D; Lu Jingzhi said as he put down the cup of water and helped Jiang Yuning lie back down in bed.
&x201C;The sweetness is in my heart. If this is the way that you are going to feed me medicine every single time, then I guess&x2026;I will willingly take it every time.&x201D;
&x201C;You can dream on,&x201D; Lu Jingzhi said as he covered the quilt over her before lying down beside her. He then caressed her forehead gently so that she could go to sleep without any worries.
It was the first time that Jiang Yuning ever thought that falling sick was not such a bad thing. She fell asleep thinking about how great it would be if she could do it just one more time&x2026;
Jiang Yuning woke up early the next morning but she had to stay at home and rest for the whole day under the supervision of Sister Liang.
Later in the evening, Shen Yichen called Jiang Yuning to check up on her and to inform and prepare her for the upcoming news. &x201C;Guangying Media will be announcing the cast of
&x201C;You do not need to remind me anymore. I am already prepared for it,&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied immediately.
In fact, she had managed to get a role in
Fortunately, she was not the lead female character in the drama.
Therefore, the criticisms that she may have received would probably be lesser.
&x201C;I still have another piece of good news.
