Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
&x201C;I would have told you if I had really seen your father in the last few years,&x201D; Grandpa Tan explained immediately. &x201C;Anyway, it has already been so long. It is better if you stop thinking about it. If your father were to come back, he would have came back a long time ago.&x201D;
Jiang Yuning could not tell if Grandpa Tan was hiding something from her. In the end, she merely laughed and said, &x201C;I guess that is true.&x201D;
However, Jiang Yuning still had her doubts because she thought that Grandpa Tan was acting very strangely, as if he was hiding something from her.
In the evening, Lu Jingzhi made a trip to Grandpa Tan&x2019;s house to pick Jiang Yuning up so that they could go home together. As soon as Jiang Yuning got into the car, she plunged into Lu Jingzhi&x2019;s arms immediately.
Lu Jingzhi held her tightly in his arms before asking, &x201C;What happened?&x201D;
&x201C;I am now an orphan with no mother or father.&x201D;
Lu Jingzhi turned his head slightly and looked at Jiang Yuning before saying in a low and sexy voice, &x201C;But you have a husband now and this husband of yours is willing to be whoever you want him to be. What do you want me to be? Hmm?&x201D;
Jiang Yuning was stunned for a moment to receive this kind of response from Lu Jingzhi. She stared incredulously at Lu Jingzhi before asking, &x201C;Are you really the second brother that I know? Why are you acting like this?&x201D;
&x201C;I am only going to be like this today because I want to cheer you up and stop you from overthinking. Secretary Ho told me that role playing is the trend nowadays, so&x2026;&x201D;
&x201C;Oh, my goodness! I do not want to know who taught you all this. You do not need to say anything anymore. You just have to sit there and let me look at that face of yours,&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied as she stared intensely at the man who was sitting next to her. &x201C;However, I recently watched a video that I felt was immensely hot. Can you do it for me when we get home later?&x201D;
Lu Jingzhi could see the eagerness in Jiang Yuning&x2019;s eyes and he could not bring himself to say no to her. Therefore, he could only nod his head in agreement to her request.
Jiang Yuning was immediately satisfied and she hugged Lu Jingzhi even tighter around his waist.
She suddenly thought of the suspicion that she had and she quickly told Lu Jingzhi about it. &x201C;Second brother, I have a feeling that Grandpa Tan knows something about my father because he is always testing me with his words. I would like to investigate him.&x201D;
&x201C;Alright then. I will make the arrangements.&x201D;
There was no need for any further explanations because the two of them understood one another very well.
Jiang Yuning suddenly realized that it was not a big deal even if she no longer had a mother.
She already had a man who would never leave her side and would willingly accompany her through whatever difficult situation that she was going through&x2026;
It was already late in the evening at the interrogation room in the police station.
It had already been more than three hours since Fu Yahui was detained, but she persevered and remain silent all the way. Whenever the police officers asked her a question, she simply kept quiet as she closed her eyes.
At this moment, the strong career woman was a total mess. Her hair was a mess and her makeup was already ruined.
However, these were the least of Fu Yahui&x2019;s concerns.
&x201C;Miss, it is useless even if you refuse to cooperate with us. Both of your former financial assistants have already spilled the beans about what really happened five years ago. If you continue to obstruct our investigation, the courts might not show leniency towards you when sentencing you.&x201D;
&x201C;You have to understand that it is already impossible for you to deny your crime as the evidence has all been laid out and the perpetrator of all these crimes is clearly you. We have sufficient evidence to charge you for embezzlement, for trying to destroy evidence of your crimes, and also for getting your lawyer to forge a power of attorney. Do you think that anyone can save you right now? The only person who can save you now is yourself!&x201D;
&x201C;If you are still trying to think of ways to turn this around, you are only going to get more disappointed!&x201D;
Fu Yahui refused to admit defeat and she continued keeping her mouth shut as she held her hands tightly together.
The only reason why she remained silent was because she felt that this was the only way that she could save herself. She believed that she would be able to turn this around. She was waiting. She was waiting for Huo Zhendong to show up and save her from this misery.
Huo Zhendong had already secured a way out of this matter for himself since a long time ago. Why would he save her?
She was daydreaming&x2026;
When the police officer saw that Fu Yahui was not going to cooperate, he took out a newspaper and started flipping through it. If she wanted to test his patience, then he would show her who had more patience ultimately.
Fu Yahui must have been very concerned because Dongheng Enterprise was a mess right now and their share prices were dropping rapidly. How long could she continue sitting there in silence?
Dongheng Enterprise was soon under tremendous pressure and scrutiny from the public, with their public relations team quickly stepping forward and claiming that they would cooperate fully with the police officers conducting the investigation. If it could be proven that Fu Yahui did in fact commit the crimes as charged, then Dongheng Enterprise would compensate Jiang Yuning according to the court&x2019;s judgment.
The public were curious about what was going to happen to Fu Yahui&x2019;s current husband, Huo Zhendong, now that she had already been arrested.
The internet remained busy even until late at night because of everything that had happened today.
Jiang Yuning received a phone call from Lawyer Zou because he wanted to inform her that Fu Yahui had remained silent ever since she had been detained earlier in the afternoon. Even though the evidence clearly showed that she was guilty, she still refused to admit her crimes.
Jiang Yuning could not help but laugh when she heard Lawyer Zou&x2019;s words. &x201C;I understand Fu Yahui very well. She would never admit to her own mistakes until there is no way out for her. She would definitely be waiting for Huo Zhendong to think of a way to save her.&x201D;
&x201C;If that is the case, I can help you to find out Huo Zhendong&x2019;s thoughts about the entire situation and then see if we can finally get Fu Yahui to open her mouth,&x201D; Lawyer Zou suggested to Jiang Yuning.
&x201C;Thank you for the trouble, Lawyer Zou. I will be depending on you. Besides that, could you please help me to keep a tight lookout on Huo Zhendong? I am afraid that he will take this opportunity to run away.&x201D;
&x201C;I got it.&x201D;
After hanging up the phone, Jiang Yuning saw Lu Jingzhi walking down the stairs after he had taken a shower. Her eyes brighten up immediately when she saw the clothes that he was wearing.
Lu Jingzhi was wearing a light gray shirt that he had paired off with a dark gray plaid vest and a burgundy colored tie. He was also wearing a very simple quartz watch on his wrist.
As Jiang Yuning looked at Lu Jingzhi, who had just sat down on the sofa, all the pent-up anger within subsided immediately.
Jiang Yuning felt an even more intense feeling wash over her when Lu Jingzhi leaned back against the sofa and crossed his legs as he stared at her.
&x201C;Oh my god! This is absolutely unbearable!&x201D;
Lu Jingzhi reached out and grabbed her hand as he pulled her towards the sofa. &x201C;You already find this unbearable?&x201D;
Jiang Yuning stared at Lu Jingzhi&x2019;s throat and she could feel her legs getting wobbly.
&x201C;Second brother, take it off!&x201D;
Lu Jingzhi stared at her helplessly before he gently pushed her away.
Lu Jingzhi started to unbutton his shirt, revealing his very sexy collarbone.
Jiang Yuning&x2019;s eyes brighten up immediately. &x201C;Second brother, if I took a video of you right now and uploaded it online, I believe that you will have more than ten million views in just a few minutes.&x201D;
Jiang Yuning nodded incessantly as she replied, &x201C;Yes, I am satisfied&x2026;very satisfied.&x201D;
Lu Jingzhi heaved a huge sigh of relief as he hugged her tightly in his arms. &x201C;Are you still feeling sad right now?&x201D;
&x201C;I have not felt sad for a long time already. I just wanted to treat myself to some eye candy. Second brother, you are really very handsome and you look like a work of art. Can you put your shirt on properly? I want to record a video of you so that I can watch it on my cell phone whenever I want to.&x201D;
&x201C;Why not? I will not show it to anyone else,&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied as she placed her hands around his neck.
Lu Jingzhi leaned over and whispered into Jiang Yuning&x2019;s ears, &x201C;I am afraid you&x2026;cannot take it.&x201D;
Okay. Jiang Yuning could no longer stand the teasing.
In the end, Lu Jingzhi finally gave in to Jiang Yuning&x2019;s request and as a preventative measure in case any hackers got hold of the video, Jiang Yuning did not capture Lu Jingzhi&x2019;s face in the video.
Second brother was just too handsome!
