Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
In order to confirm her own guess, Jiang Yuning walked towards the black car. At the same time, the person in charge quickly opened the car door and exited the car.
After getting out of the car, he greeted Jiang Yuning respectfully before asking, &x201C;Miss Jiang, are you okay?&x201D;
&x201C;I am fine. Did he send you here?&x201D; Jiang Yuning asked.
&x201C;Yes, he was afraid that you would be in danger,&x201D; the other party responded respectfully, with a smile on his face.
&x201C;You can go back now. I am fine,&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied as she smiled.
&x201C;We have to make sure that you get home safely before we can finally call it a day.&x201D;
After listening to his explanation, Jiang Yuning nodded her head. &x201C;Thank you for all the hard work. When I reach home, I will invite all of you in for some tea.&x201D;
Jiang Yuning felt so much warmth in her heart because she was unaware that so many people were following her to ensure her safety. Even though second brother was not around, she felt very protected and she could still feel how much he cared about her.
After Jiang Yuning returned to the car, Ku Jie immediately said, &x201C;Exaggeration.&x201D;
&x201C;You are jealous, aren&x2019;t you?&x201D;
Ku Jie put on his sunglasses before he started to drive.
&x201C;Brother, have you ever been in a relationship?&x201D; Jiang Yuning suddenly asked, full of curiosity. &x201C;Have you never had a girlfriend even when you were studying abroad?&x201D;
Ku Jie was silent for a moment before he quickly changed the subject. &x201C;Mind your own business. You are an actress who is struggling to gain fame.&x201D;
Shortly after Jiang Yuning and Ku Jie left, Fu Yahui got even more frustrated because Huo Yuxi had already gone to the airport to pick up Huo Zhendong and to bring him home.
As soon as Huo Yuxi and Huo Zhendong entered the mountain villa, Fu Yahui wanted to leave and find a place to calm herself down, but she was immediately stopped by Huo Yuxi. &x201C;Mommy, are you unhappy that daddy is finally back in the country?&x201D;
&x201C;No, I am just a little tired.&x201D;
&x201C;Yahui, what is wrong with you?&x201D; Huo Zhendong asked as he put his luggage down and stared at his wife. &x201C;All I wanted to do was to give you a surprise. Are you really that unhappy to see me?&x201D;
&x201C;I am just exhausted because the company has recently accumulated a lot of issues due to your precious daughter.&x201D;
&x201C;Is it really because of me or is it because of your own biological daughter?&x201D; Huo Yuxi replied, trying to sow discord between Fu Yahui and Huo Zhendong. &x201C;Mommy, I can understand that you are not good to me because I am not your biological daughter. However, daddy is your husband and it was so difficult for him to finally make some time to come back here. Shouldn&x2019;t you be nicer to him instead of showing him this attitude?&x201D;
&x201C;You have no right to lecture me,&x201D; Fu Yahui screamed at Huo Yuxi. &x201C;I bought this house and it is under my name. If you want to continue living in this house, then shut your mouth right now, Huo Yuxi. You are testing my limits. Since you know that you are incomparable to my biological daughter, then stop acting like you matter!&x201D;
&x201C;Don&x2019;t say anything. I get frustrated as soon as I see your face.&x201D; After that, Fu Yahui returned to her room immediately without showing any affection towards both father and daughter.
&x201C;Daddy, look at her! You did not believe me when I told you that she is vicious. Do you believe me now?&x201D; Huo Yuxi asked as she held tightly onto her father&x2019;s arm.
&x201C;Do not worry. We will not need to tolerate her after this,&x201D; Huo Zhendong replied as he patted Huo Yuxi&x2019;s hand gently. He had been patiently enduring Fu Yahui&x2019;s foul temper for the past few years and had already reached his limits. All the women outside would always treat him with respect, while Fu Yahui was the only one who dared to treat him like this.
Fu Yahui knew that both Huo Zhendong and Huo Yuxi were extremely upset at her but right now, her priority was to deal with Jiang Yuning. She wanted eight hundred million yuan? That was not an issue for her. Fu Yahui could easily transfer eight hundred million yuan to Jiang Yuning. However, it was not possible for her to transfer 10% of Dongheng Enterprise&x2019;s shares to Jiang Yuning. Therefore, Fu Yahui decided to meet with her lawyer to discuss the countermeasures that she should take against Jiang Yuning and both Huo Zhendong and Huo Yuxi.
After the showdown with Fu Yahui, Jiang Yuning was in an extremely good mood when she finally reached home.
Jiang Yuning was in an even more beautiful mood after receiving a phone call from Shen Yichen.
&x201C;Dress up nicely tomorrow. I am bringing you to meet someone important. Director Shen Guobang saw the video that you had uploaded onto your public social account and he is interested to cast you as his third female lead.&x201D;
&x201C;Really?&x201D; Jiang Yuning asked excitedly as she jumped up from the sofa.
&x201C;Of course! His assistant called me personally to inform me about the situation but no matter what it is, you have to be prepared when you meet with him tomorrow. If Director Shen Guobang is not satisfied with your performance tomorrow, he might just change his mind. Therefore, you have to be prepared and think of ways to keep your role,&x201D; Shen Yichen quickly reminded Jiang Yuning.
&x201C;You can be rest assured. I will definitely cherish the opportunity that I had been given,&x201D; Jiang Yuning assured Shen Yichen over the phone. &x201C;I will not embarrass you.&x201D;
&x201C;Alright then. I will pick you up in the morning tomorrow. Are you done with your personal family affairs?&x201D; Shen Yichen asked as he raised his brows.
&x201C;Yes, it is done. Now, all I have to do is to wait and collect my money, as long as Fu Yahui does not come up with any more tricks.&x201D;
&x201C;Okay, I will not interrupt the time that you have with the second young master then,&x201D; Shen Yichen said before immediately hanging up on the phone.
Hey! So conscious?
Jiang Yuning put down her cell phone but as soon as she lifted her head, she saw a man walking into the living room and slowly taking off his coat.
Jiang Yuning rushed towards Lu Jingzhi and she quickly hugged Lu Jingzhi even though Sister Liang was still around. &x201C;Second brother, you are finally home. I have missed you.&x201D;
As soon as Sister Liang saw what Jiang Yuning was doing, she quickly took Lu Jingzhi&x2019;s coat before leaving the living room immediately.
Lu Jingzhi carried Jiang Yuning before walking over to the sofa and placing her directly on his lap. &x201C;Why are you so passionate today?&x201D;
&x201C;Because I really missed you.&x201D; Jiang Yuning placed her hands around Lu Jingzhi&x2019;s neck and hugged him tightly. &x201C;You are always so busy during the day. Therefore, the only time that I have with you is during the night. So, I will make sure to cherish each and every second that I get to spend with you.&x201D;
&x201C;Do you know what the consequences are when you say things like that?&x201D; Lu Jingzhi asked as he held tightly onto Jiang Yuning&x2019;s waist.
&x201C;Can you teach me a lesson later? I want to tell you about my day first,&x201D; Jiang Yuning asked as she stared at Lu Jingzhi.
&x201C;Okay,&x201D; Lu Jingzhi calmly replied.
&x201C;I finally had a showdown with Fu Yahui today. I could finally let go of all of the pain and grievances that I have suffered in the past few years because of what she did. However, I know that she would never be able to understand the pain that I had to go through because of her. Therefore, I asked her to return me eight hundred million yuan and also to transfer 10% of Dongheng Enterprise&x2019;s shares to me. After all this is settled, then I guess I can really be considered an orphan.&x201D;
After listening to Jiang Yuning&x2019;s words, Lu Jingzhi tightened his grasp around her waist.
This was his natural reaction because his heart ached for her and Jiang Yuning understood what he was feeling.
&x201C;I suddenly thought of the both of us and I was afraid that I would also be unqualified to be a mother. However, when I thought about having a baby with you, I suddenly realized that no matter what happens, I would definitely love our baby very much. I have no doubts about that at all.&x201D;
&x201C;You must love me very much then?&x201D;
Jiang Yuning blushed at Lu Jingzhi&x2019;s sudden question and she could feel her whole body warming up. She had not realized that she was confessing her love to Lu Jingzhi.
&x201C;Yes, I love you very much. What about you?&x201D;
Jiang Yuning was a sly fox indeed. She spoke the first six words really fast and softly, but she emphasized the last three words.
What about you?
This was her question to Lu Jingzhi.
