Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
Lu Jingzhi had only been away for two nights, but Jiang Yuning was already so depressed and even suffered from insomnia. However, there was nothing that she could do about it.
Even though she tried sleeping by hugging Lu Jingzhi&x2019;s pillow, coat, or even his underwear, she was still unable to sleep the entire night. Therefore, Jiang Yuning finally got up from her bed and went down to the kitchen to drink a glass of water. Her curiosity was piqued when she passed by the room that was always closed.
Sister Liang had once told her that the room was filled with Lu Jingzhi&x2019;s late mother&x2019;s belongings after she passed away. Lu Jingzhi had never allowed anyone into the room, perhaps because he did not want anyone to touch his mother&x2019;s belongings.
Her curiosity got the better of her and Jiang Yuning pushed the door open before turning on the lights.
The room was indeed filled with items that belonged to Lu Jingzhi&x2019;s mother. There were many of her photographs, all the jewelry that she used to own, and some of the items that she used when she was still alive.
Jiang Yuning could not help but sigh at the thought of how hateful the Jiang family&x2019;s butler had been to Lu Jingzhi when he came looking for her in the past as he had just lost his mother.
After looking through the items in the room, Jiang Yuning was just about to turn off the lights when she suddenly spotted a wooden box that looked extremely familiar to her.
Jiang Yuning walked towards the box and read the word that was engraved on the box.
Jiang Yuning suddenly had a strong feeling that whatever was contained in the wooden box would be related to her. Therefore, she quickly placed the wooden box on the bed before opening it up.
As soon as she looked into the wooden box, she saw about ten or more smaller boxes inside the wooden box. They were gifts that he had never sent out.
One of the boxes contained a very old cell phone. As soon as Jiang Yuning saw the cell phone, tears started welling up in her eyes because this was the cell phone that she had gifted Lu Jingzhi for his eighteenth birthday when she was just fourteen years old.
The cell phone had certainly been used before. Jiang Yuning quickly plugged in the charger and started charging the cell phone. She really wanted to find out how Lu Jingzhi felt about her in the past.
Surprisingly, the cell phone could still be turned on although the brightness of the cell phone was extremely dim.
However, Jiang Yuning was very disappointed upon discovering no content within the cell phone. It was only when she clicked into the outbox that she finally saw an undelivered message because the delivery had failed: &x2018;I want to see you&x2019;.
The time of composition was late at night on his birthday ten years ago.
As soon as Jiang Yuning read that sentence, tears started falling down her face.
&x201C;I want to see you too.&x201D;
She picked up the wooden box and hugged it tightly, before she started laughing as her tears continued to fall. &x201C;Since these gifts are for me, I will keep them.&x201D;
In order not to continue crying, Jiang Yuning decided that she would open up all those gifts together with Lu Jingzhi when he came home. After that, she would keep all of these antiques because they were precious to her.
When morning came the next day, it was already the third day after Jiang Yuning made the agreement with Fu Yahui. However, there was still no news from Fu Yahui on the transfer of the shares and the remaining four hundred million yuan to her.
All that Jiang Yuning received when she was having breakfast was a phone call from Fu Yahui giving her more excuses and also a video of the lawyer preparing the share transfer for her. Fu Yahui was lazy to continue the conversation and she was just about to hang up, but Jiang Yuning was not going to let her off so easily.
&x201C;Miss Fu, have you already forgotten that today is the last day for you to fulfill your part of the agreement?&x201D;
&x201C;Yuning, you are my biological daughter and I am your mother. Since I have already promised you that I am going to do it, I will not go back on my own words. You need to understand that I need some time to sort out the things that you have requested for.&x201D;
&x201C;You want me to be more considerate? I will be very considerate&x2026;I will try and understand the situation that you are in,&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied as she laughed.
&x201C;That&x2019;s good.&x201D; Fu Yahui hung up on the phone immediately after hearing Jiang Yuning&x2019;s reply because she was now more certain that her lawyer was right. She believed that Jiang Yuning was only doing all these to extort money from her, and would therefore not expose the truth so easily.
However, at this moment, Jiang Yuning was thinking that the best way to destroy a person was to allow her to think that everything was going smoothly at the moment.
She could not be bothered to engage in an argument with Fu Yahui today. She had already decided that she was going to go to the police station with the lawyer tomorrow to report the case, so that the state prosecutors could file a lawsuit against Fu Yahui.
Later that afternoon, Shen Yichen dropped by the villa to talk to and hand Jiang Yuning the script of Shen Guobang&x2019;s upcoming drama,
&x201C;You will be playing the role of Ma Ping&x2019;er, who is a doctor. Therefore, I have already arranged for an old Chinese physician to teach you some basics about Chinese medicine. You still have about one month to learn and improve your knowledge. I think you would be able to do very well.
&x201C;Director Shen, I will be going to the police station tomorrow with my lawyer to report a case and start a lawsuit against my mother. If the news accidentally gets leaked out, X Society will try to cover up the truth for me. However, I would like to inform you beforehand, as I am afraid that what I am about to do will create some trouble for you.&x201D;
&x201C;Guangying Media has no issue with this sort of matter. After all, you are the victim in this situation. Everything will be fine, as long as you pay attention to the response and reaction of the netizens and react according,&x201D; Shen Yichen quickly assured Jiang Yuning.
&x201C;My brother will definitely update me on the reaction of the netizens. Do not worry,&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied.
&x201C;Then, there is no problem at all.&x201D;
&x201C;I am just afraid that my actions will adversely affect the cast of
&x201C;The list of the cast is still confidential at the moment. When filming officially begins, the heat brought about by the lawsuit would have already ceased. Furthermore, you do not need to worry because Director Shen Guobang will not simply replace you,&x201D; Shen Yichen said, as though he was trying to tell Jiang Yuning something.
&x201C;I had just found out about this matter too. I heard that someone has already spoken to Director Shen Guobang and that person has already paved the way for you,&x201D; Shen Yichen replied as he stared at Jiang Yuning, wanting to see her reaction.
Upon hearing Shen Yichen&x2019;s words, Jiang Yuning had a puzzled expression on her face. &x201C;What do you mean? Who would speak up for me and pave the way for me? Did uncle do it because he thinks that I would not be able to secure the role based on my own ability?&x201D;
At this time, Jiang Yuning could not even imagine that her own man would actually be associated to Shen Guobang.
&x201C;Well, whoever it is, it does not matter because I can tell that Director Shen Guobang really likes you. Therefore, you had better study your script diligently. If you need any help, do not hesitate to give me a call.&x201D; After he was done speaking, Shen Yichen stood up and left the villa immediately.
Jiang Yuning held the drama script tightly in her hands as she began to study and seriously read through the script. She had to give it her best shot and act really well because she did not want to embarrass Lu Jingzhi and Gu Pingsheng.
In order to distract herself, Jiang Yuning and the young paparazzo decided to continue shooting the short video
He did not know why, but the young paparazzo suddenly felt that Jiang Yuning&x2019;s acting skills had really improved. She was so into her character that she was flawlessly portraying the role of loving and hating at the same time.
He did not know that she was about to turn into a monster herself.
&x201C;Sister Yuning, trust me! After we release the second issue of your short video, your followers and fans will definitely increase by another two million. Trust me!&x201D;
&x201C;Okay, if the number of fans that I have do not increase, I will knock you on your head,&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied coldly.
Jiang Yuning ran her fingers through her long hair before she turned around and told the young paparazzo, &x201C;Let us try hard to complete everything by tonight. I have to do something really big and important tomorrow.&x201D;
