Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
Jiang Yuning&x2019;s grandfather&x2019;s disciple was naturally happy and willing to help her out.
His house was located just a short distance away from the Jiang family&x2019;s old house. As soon as she entered the courtyard, Jiang Yuning could smell the strong scent of herbs and medicine.
The old Chinese medicine practitioner was reading the newspaper with the aid of a magnifying glass when Jiang Yuning walked in. The old man quickly put aside his magnifying glass and looked at her before asking, &x201C;Why have you suddenly decided to come and learn about Chinese medicine from me?&x201D;
&x201C;Grandpa Tan, I need to learn about Chinese medicine for my upcoming role in an ancient drama. However, I am also very keen to learn any relevant skills from a wise man like you,&x201D; Jiang Yuning said as she smiled at the old man. &x201C;This place still looks and feels the same as it was before. Nothing has changed.&x201D;
&x201C;Have you received any news about your father in the past few years?&x201D; the old man suddenly asked Jiang Yuning.
Jiang Yuning shook her head before replying, &x201C;No. I have already made countless number of trips to the place he was last seen, but there has been no news about him at all. There is probably nothing else that we can do right now.&x201D;
&x201C;It is okay,&x201D; the old man quickly replied. &x201C;Since you are willing to learn from me, I am willing to impart my knowledge and skills to you. Just come over whenever you have time&x2014;I am always here.&x201D;
&x201C;Thank you, Grandpa Tan.&x201D;
The old man looked at Jiang Yuning with something to say to her, but he chose to remain silent in the end as not to disappoint her. .
&x201C;Are you in a relationship now?&x201D;
&x201C;Yes, I am,&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied as she nodded her head.
&x201C;Do not date anyone from the entertainment industry. There are no good men in that industry,&x201D; the old man said as he glared at Jiang Yuning.
&x201C;He is not from the entertainment industry. He is the best man in the whole world,&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied as she pulled a cheeky face.
Jiang Yuning spent the whole afternoon learning some basic knowledge on Chinese medicine from the old man in his courtyard. In the evening, she suddenly received a phone call from Lu Jingzhi.
&x201C;Sister Liang said that you have not gone home today. Where are you?&x201D;
&x201C;I will send you the address,&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied as she texted Grandpa Tan&x2019;s address to Lu Jingzhi.
&x201C;Do not ask your boyfriend to come over. He will not be welcomed,&x201D; the old man said in a grouchy manner.
&x201C;Is that so?&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied in a mysterious manner. After about half an hour, Lu Jingzhi&x2019;s black sedan parked in front of Grandpa Tan&x2019;s house. Jiang Yuning ran out to the car to get Lu Jingzhi before bringing him to see Grandpa Tan.
&x201C;Isn&x2019;t this Jingzhi?&x201D; Grandpa Tan asked as soon as he saw Lu Jingzhi.
&x201C;Grandpa Tan, I am sorry if Ningning has caused any inconvenience to you,&x201D; Lu Jingzhi said as he reached out his hand to shake the old man&x2019;s hand.
Lu Jingzhi had previously met Grandpa Tan several times in the past when he would drop by the Jiang family mansion to play chess with Jiang Yuning&x2019;s grandfather.
&x201C;You are Yuning&x2019;s boyfriend?&x201D; the old man asked as he stared at the both of them with a strange expression on his face.
&x201C;Yes, I am.&x201D;
&x201C;How about this man, grandpa Tan? Will he be welcomed in your house then?&x201D;
&x201C;You little brat&x2026;&x201D; Grandpa Tan replied as he knocked Jiang Yuning on her head. He turned around to look at Lu Jingzhi before saying, &x201C;You can bring her home now. She is starting to get a little annoying.&x201D;
&x201C;Okay. We will drop by again tomorrow to visit you.&x201D;
Grandpa Tan waved his hand and watched as the two young lovebirds walked away slowly from his courtyard. He was glad that Yuning had finally found someone that she could depend on. He had already voiced out his opinion and criticism when Jiang Yuning&x2019;s grandfather had arranged for her to be engaged to Lu Zongye. He had already told her grandfather that Lu Jingzhi seemed like the better candidate, and everything turned out just as he had predicted.
On the way back to the villa, Jiang Yuning held on tightly to Lu Jingzhi&x2019;s hand and she was in an extremely good mood.
&x201C;Second brother, it feels really good to be able to tell others that we are in a relationship!&x201D;
Lu Jingzhi stared at Jiang Yuning who was grinning from ear to ear and he could not help but say, &x201C;I have already told you from the start that I can let anyone know about our relationship as long as you&x2026;&x201D;
&x201C;Second brother, sometimes I feel so proud and happy because the man that I am dating is the man that everyone admires and wants. However, when I think about revealing our relationship to the public, I cannot help but to feel scared because we would always be scrutinized whenever we are out and we will no longer have any privacy. Furthermore, we do not know what is going through Grandpa Lu&x2019;s mind at the moment.&x201D;
Lu Jingzhi held Jiang Yuning&x2019;s face in his hand before replying, &x201C;Then, we will continue keeping it a secret.&x201D;
&x201C;When the time is right, I will make sure that everyone in the world knows about our relationship.&x201D;
Lu Jingzhi held Jiang Yuning tightly in his arm before nodding his head.
&x201C;I have been learning Chinese medicine from Grandpa Tan today and we were reminiscing about the past earlier. Second brother, I have some questions. How much do you know about the matters involving the Jiang family&x2019;s bankruptcy and how much evidence do you have in your hands?&x201D;
Lu Jingzhi kept quiet as he continued hugging Jiang Yuning. As he was about to answer her, Jiang Yuning&x2019;s cell phone started ringing.
The caller ID revealed that it was Ku Jie.
As soon as Jiang Yuning saw the call, she wanted to get out of Lu Jingzhi&x2019;s arm and answer the call, but was stopped by Lu Jingzhi who took the cell phone from her. He answered the call immediately.
&x201C;It&x2019;s me,&x201D; Lu Jingzhi replied flatly.
Ku Jie was stunned for a moment before he yelled into the phone, &x201C;Doesn&x2019;t she have her own hands? Can&x2019;t she answer the phone call on her own? Forget it. I wanted to tell her that the media has gotten hold of the news that the reason behind Yuning&x2019;s visit to the police station was to file a case against her own mother. The media also knows that Dongheng Enterprise is currently in trouble.&x201D;
&x201C;Can&x2019;t you use X Society to suppress the media?&x201D; Lu Jingzhi replied as he put the phone on speaker so that Jiang Yuning could also hear the conversation.
&x201C;The person who leaked the information has already released the information to many different media outlets at the same time. There is no way for us to suppress all of them at this point. Yuning, you know that you always attract the media&x2019;s attention when it come to negative press. However, I feel that it is no longer necessary to cover up the truth since the matter has already been exposed. The only thing that we should do right now is to keep an eye on how Fu Yahui and both Huo Zhendong and Huo Yuxi would react to this matter.&x201D;
Initially, Jiang Yuning did not want to create a big issue out of this matter before the investigation was certain.
This was because she could already foresee how much blame Fu Yahui would push onto other people in order to protect her own self-interest.
Therefore, she had wanted to wait until the police officially launched an investigation and started a lawsuit against Fu Yahui before saying anything to the media.
Since problem had already arisen, there is no need for her to keep silent anymore.
&x201C;Brother, although I have finally managed to accumulate a small fan base after so much difficulty, I am not afraid to face Fu Yahui over this issue. You should continue keeping an eye on Dongheng Enterprise on my behalf. I will make sure that Fu Yahui regrets it as soon as she tries to do anything funny.&x201D;
&x201C;Dongheng Enterprise would definitely have to take the fall in the end,&x201D; Ku Jie replied.
&x201C;There is no point for her to keep struggling when the enterprise is already about to be liquidated,&x201D; Lu Jingzhi replied coldly. &x201C;Earlier in the afternoon, I heard that Fu Yahui&x2019;s lawyer is already running out of ways to cover up for her.&x201D;
&x201C;Now, that is interesting,&x201D; Ku Jie sneered.
&x201C;The reason why the actress, Jiang Yuning went to the police station two days ago was to file a police report in order to start a lawsuit against her own biological mother. Her biological mother is none other than Ms. Ava, the deputy director of Dongheng Enterprise. Ms. Ava is suspected to have embezzled a large amount of money from the Jiang family five years ago, resulting in the Jiang family&x2019;s subsequent bankruptcy. According to reliable sources, Jiang Yuning has questions about Ms. Ava&x2019;s ability to come up with the seven billion-yuan capital funding for Dongheng Enterprise. Therefore, she has filed a case with the police in the hopes that investigations will be carried out and that a reasonable and clear explanation can finally be given to members of the Jiang family&x2026;&x201D;
&x201C;The director of Dongheng Enterprise has already spoken up and claimed the news to be ridiculous, and in fact inconsistent with the actual situation. Dongheng Enterprise is a multinational company and although only been recently established, the capital and funding for Dongheng Enterprise have all been in compliance with the law. He hopes that everyone will stop their wrongful speculations about Dongheng Enterprise and Miss Fu Yahui.&x201D;
In a blink of an eye, there were already a variety of news and articles all over the internet.
Some netizens even speculated that Jiang Yuning was only doing all this as she wanted a share in Dongheng Enterprise. Why would she have otherwise waited so long to bring an action against her mother?
Was Jiang Yuning about to give the netizens another good show to watch at her own expense again?
