Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
After getting the role of the third female lead, Jiang Yuning went with the young paparazzo to scout a few of the locations that Shen Yichen had recommended. She had wanted to scout each of the locations personally before deciding because she knew that many of the netizens were in love with the traditional Chinese outfit that was embroidered with the dragon.
By the time they were done scouting each location, it was already almost six thirty in the evening. Jiang Yuning thought of sharing the good news with Lu Jingzhi as soon as possible and therefore quickly made a phone call to Secretary Ho. She wanted to inform him that she would pick Lu Jingzhi up from work today.
&x201C;Oh, Miss Jiang. This is rather unfortunate. Something has cropped up suddenly and the principal has to leave for a business trip soon. There is only half an hour left before he leaves, so I think it might be better for you to go home directly. He will be back in a few days,&x201D; Secretary Ho quickly informed Jiang Yuning over the phone.
&x201C;Is that Yuning?&x201D; Lu Jingzhi asked when he heard Secretary Ho speaking on the phone. He quickly walked downstairs after putting on his uniform.
The secretary nodded his head before handing the cell phone over to Lu Jingzhi. &x201C;She is looking for you.&x201D;
Jiang Yuning felt extremely warm in her heart as soon as she heard Lu Jingzhi naturally calling her Ningning.
&x201C;Second brother, are you going on a business trip?&x201D; Jiang Yuning immediately asked, suddenly starting to miss him very much. &x201C;I am already close to the entrance of your office building. I had initially intended to pick you up from work, but since you have something that you have to do, then you should go ahead and get it done first.&x201D;
&x201C;Wait for me. I will meet you at the usual location in two minutes.&x201D; After that, Lu Jingzhi hung up the phone before he got into the car and instructed Secretary Ho to start driving.
They did not see anyone when they arrived at the small road but suddenly, a person dressed in sports attire quickly opened the door and climbed into the back seat of the car.
&x201C;Wow&x2026;&x201D; Jiang Yuning exclaimed as soon as she got into the car.
This was because the Lu Jingzhi that she saw everyday was always dressed in a suit. A black suit. This was the first time that she was seeing Lu Jingzhi in his uniform. He looked very solemn and macho and the uniform made him look even more dashing than he did on the usual days.
He had the perfect posture and his legs were extremely long.
Unfortunately, she could only see him in his uniform inside the car. If only she could see him walking outside in his uniform, her heart would have definitely skipped a few beats.
&x201C;I only have five more minutes before I have to go,&x201D; Lu Jingzhi said before he pulled Jiang Yuning into his arms and started hugging her tightly. &x201C;I will be gone for the next three days. Make sure to take care of yourself when I am not around. Do not act rashly or do anything that will endanger yourself.&x201D;
&x201C;I understand,&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied as she nodded her head. &x201C;I will not create any trouble when you are not around. Do you miss me already?&x201D;
&x201C;I am just afraid that there will be no one here to clean up the mess for you when I am not around.&x201D; Lu Jingzhi knew that Jiang Yuning would not be able to stay out of trouble.
Jiang Yuning took the opportunity to hug Lu Jingzhi tightly before kissing him gently on his lips.
As soon as he saw that they were getting intimate, Secretary Ho quickly turned around. He closed his eyes until he was certain that the both of them were already done before he gently reminded Lu Jingzhi, &x201C;Principal, it is almost time to leave.&x201D;
Lu Jingzhi quickly released Jiang Yuning from his grasp before he wiped the lipstick mark off the corner of his lips. &x201C;Wait for me to come home. Let the lawyers handle the matters relating to your mother.&x201D;
&x201C;I know. I will be good,&x201D; Jiang Yuning quickly replied.
Lu Jingzhi held Jiang Yuning&x2019;s hand and kissed it gently before he finally allowed her to leave.
&x201C;You can go now.&x201D;
Jiang Yuning stared as Lu Jingzhi&x2019;s car slowly drove away until it was eventually out of her sight. She was contented because she seized the opportunity, not only to see him before he left for his business trip but also the opportunity to see him wearing his uniform. It was all worth it to her because he looked so handsome in his uniform.
However, before officially leaving for his business trip, Lu Jingzhi quickly instructed Secretary Ho, &x201C;Do not withdraw any of the bodyguards. I do not want anyone approaching her before I come back.&x201D;
&x201C;Do not worry, principal. You can be rest assured.&x201D; Secretary Ho had already made all the necessary arrangements.
In the past, the principal did not have any commitments and he was always able to leave for a business trip at any time without any worries of possible emergencies. However, he was not alone right now and would therefore always have to ensure that Jiang Yuning was well looked after even in his absence. Of course, the secretary was extremely happy for the principal because he felt that the principal had more emotions right now.
It had been a long and tough day for Huo Yuxi because she discovered that she had cervical cancer.
After she reached home, Huo Yuxi locked herself in the bedroom before she started washing herself repeatedly as she soaked in the bathtub. It was as though she felt that she would be able to wash away all the cancer cells just by washing herself repeatedly.
Her rich boyfriend kept calling her but she did not have the courage to pick up the phone.
However, at this moment, she had no one else that she could ask for help from or depend on aside from her boyfriend.
If she were to tell her stepmother about her condition, her stepmother might even curse her and hoped that she died early.
&x201C;Huo Yuxi, you have already locked yourself up for an entire day without eating or drinking anything. Do you really think that you are immortal?&x201D; Fu Yahui yelled as she knocked impatiently on Huo Yuxi&x2019;s bedroom door. &x201C;Stop making me look like the bad person who is mistreating and bullying you all the time.&x201D;
As soon as Huo Yuxi heard Fu Yahui&x2019;s voice, she finally gave up and got out of the bathtub. She put on a new set of clothes before she grabbed her cell phone and quickly ran out of the mountain villa.
She had decided to meet up with her boyfriend at his manor. When the other party saw her, he was extremely surprised to see how dishevelled and unkempt she looked. &x201C;Yuxi, what happened? Why do you look like this?&x201D;
&x201C;Carl, why don&x2019;t you marry me? Let&x2019;s get married, okay?&x201D; Huo Yuxi asked as she held tightly onto his arm.
&x201C;No, tell me what is going on with you.&x201D; The other party carried her up in his arms before placing her on the bed in the master bedroom. &x201C;Darling, you can tell me anything. Tell me what has happened. We can get through anything together.&x201D;
&x201C;Carl, I&x2026;I think I have contracted cervical cancer,&x201D; Huo Yuxi replied as she held onto his arm.
&x201C;What did you just say?&x201D;
&x201C;I&x2026;I am ill. I have cervical cancer. I have nothing left in this world. The only thing that I have right now is you.&x201D;
As soon as the other party heard that Huo Yuxi had cervical cancer, he quickly pushed her away as though she was something dirty. He ran out of the manor and quickly jumped into his car.
He drove as fast as he could to the nightclub because he wanted to report everything to Lu Zongye immediately.
&x201C;Brother Lu&x2026;that woman seems to have a terminal illness. She told me that she has cervical cancer. I do not want to continue with this deal anymore. It is too disgusting.&x201D;
Lu Zongye smirked when he heard everything that the male escort had just reported to him. In the past few days, he had heard and gathered plenty of information on all the scandals that Millennium Entertainment had covered up for Huo Yuxi in the past. This included the different men that Huo Yuxi had dated and slept with in the past and therefore, he had already expected this to happen.
She had been with many different men and she had also spent the night with one man after another without any hesitation at all.
He had also been one of the many objects that she had toyed around with.
She was never really in love with him.
&x201C;Don&x2019;t worry, you do not have to do anything anymore. We will have a showdown with her tomorrow morning,&x201D; Lu Zongye replied.
&x201C;Alright then, I will end everything with her tomorrow. Brother Lu, why did you fall for a woman like her in the past? One look at her and you already know that she is not a good person. However, have you seen how popular Jiang Yuning is on the internet nowadays? Wasn&x2019;t she your fianc&xE9;e in the past? Compared to Huo Yuxi, Jiang Yuning really looks like a very decent and clean person.&x201D;
He used to bully Jiang Yuning in the past.
She had already fought and tried to annul their engagement ever since she was a teenager and no matter how much he pressured and threatened her, she never compromised or gave in. During that period of time, he had already used various means to get Jiang Yuning to succumb to his wishes, but no matter how much she suffered, Jiang Yuning never once sold her own body or soul.
She was really clean. This was a fact that he knew better than anyone else.
However, even if she was really clean, she was not a person that he could try to lay his hands on anymore. This was because Lu Zongye suddenly had a realization that Jiang Yuning was the reason why he had offended Lu Jingzhi.
