&x201C;If he does not want to come and see you, then we can take the initiative to meet up with him instead,&x201D; Lu Jingzhi whispered to Jiang Yuning. &x201C;No matter what it is, this is not your fault. Please do not overthink it, okay?&x201D;
&x201C;Okay, I will listen to you,&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied as she nodded her head. She moved around until she found a comfortable spot in Lu Jingzhi&x2019;s arms before she closed her eyes and fell asleep.
No matter what happened and no matter what challenges she faced, she only needed to remember that there was a person who would always be there for her, holding onto her and supporting her. Therefore, she knew that she would never lose her way.
It was still pouring heavily early the next morning.
Jiang Yuning was woken up by an incoming phone call from Lawyer Zou, who had called her to explain the progression of the case to her over the phone.
&x201C;Both of them have already confessed to committing the crimes. The police will now transfer the case to the public prosecutor who will subsequently decide if they should start a public prosecution case. The process is very lengthy, but I will contact you immediately if there are any problems.&x201D;
&x201C;Lawyer Zou, I will be depending on you then.&x201D;
Jiang Yuning did not want to waste any more time on this matter because she wanted to focus on rebuilding her life right now.
&x201C;You are too polite, Miss Jiang. I am just glad that I can be accountable to Second Young Master Lu now.&x201D;
&x201C;Thank you, Lawyer Zou,&x201D; Jiang Yuning said sincerely. She knew that she could have only gotten this far because of all the hard work he had put in to help her.
&x201C;You are part of the second young master&x2019;s family and I am the Lu family&x2019;s lawyer. Anything to do with you is also my responsibility.&x201D;
Jiang Yuning could not help but blush as soon as she heard Lawyer Zou addressing her as Lu Jingzhi&x2019;s family member.
In fact, the reason why Fu Yahui and Huo Zhendong could be held accountable for the crimes they had committed was solely because of the evidence that the mysterious person had sent to the police station. Although it was extremely unbelievable, Huo Zhendong and Fu Yahui had a feeling that Jiang Zhitong might still be alive.
However, they could not think of anyone else who would be so clear on the entire facts of the case, and was able to provide such comprehensive evidence to convict them of their crimes.
Therefore, both of them were very anxious because they could not believe that someone who had died five years ago could resurrect. No&x2026;it was impossible!
It did not matter if they believed or continued denying the fact that Jiang Zhitong might still be alive because they would be seeing him very soon.
After the matter relating to the Jiang family had been made clear to the public, quite a large number of fans had also stepped forward and started posting on Jiang Yuning&x2019;s fan page.
[Sister Yuning, when will you be posting the next short video? I cannot wait to see it!]
[Sister Yuning, I hope that you are not upset anymore. You will always have our love and support!]
[Sister Yuning, I have already replayed and watched your first two short videos more than a dozen times! When are you going to post the third short video? Give me a hint!]
[I am already used to checking Jiang Yuning&x2019;s social media page as soon as I come online to check for any new updates! Post the third video already!]
Jiang Yuning laughed as soon as she read all those messages. It was time for her to let go of everything that had happened and to focus on the future now. So, she quickly took out her cell phone and immediately called the young paparazzo. This was because she wanted to check out and look for a suitable location to shoot her next video before going over to Grandpa Tan&x2019;s house in the afternoon to continue learning about Chinese medication and herbs from him, as she wanted to be well prepared for her upcoming role.
Jiang Yuning remained unsatisfied after visiting a few different locations. Therefore, she called Shen Yichen immediately to ask him if he had any other locations that he had in mind so that she could check it out with the young paparazzo.
However, Shen Yichen did not answer her call because Gu Pingsheng had just returned from his trip abroad. They were having a meeting in the conference room at this time because Gu Pingsheng had already hired a few candidates from abroad to manage some of their artistes.
&x201C;If you have any questions, do not hesitate to ask,&x201D; Gu Pingsheng said as he sat at the main seat of the conference table. &x201C;I want to get to know the differences between domestic and international agents. If you have any opinion on Guangying Media, do not hesitate to express your views.&x201D;
Gu Pingsheng had brought three people back with him, consisting of two men and one woman.
It was rumoured that these three agents had done a very good job in handling and bringing up the artistes under their management.
The two men kept silent as they did not dare to speak or comment on anything. After all, they were still new and Guangying Media was a foreign place to them. However, the woman did not hesitate and asked immediately, &x201C;I would like to ask about one of your artistes named Jiang Yuning. I would like to know who is the agent in charge of her right now.&x201D;
Gu Pingsheng&x2019;s curiosity spiked as soon as he heard Jiang Yuning&x2019;s name. He looked at the woman and asked, &x201C;What would you like to know?&x201D;
Shen Yichen was also very interested to know what the woman would have to say.
&x201C;My name is Vera. First of all, I have no prejudice against this artiste. I am merely curious because I cannot understand why a huge and successful company such as Guangying Media, who is representing the frontline of the entertainment industry in China, would sign up a blacklisted artiste such as Jiang Yuning. This situation is very strange as after taking her into the company, there has not been anyone specifically in charge of her nor has she been given any job opportunities, but you have simply left her to upload her ancient short videos on her public social media account. In my honest opinion, this situation is really embarrassing for a frontline entertainment company such as Guangying Media.&x201D;
Vera&x2019;s words were very sharp and unrelenting.
Whenever she mentioned Jiang Yuning, her expression was filled with indifference and disdain.
&x201C;Chairman Gu&x2026;&x201D; Shen Yichen was just about to refute Vera&x2019;s words when Gu Pingsheng reached out his hand to stop him.
&x201C;So, based on your expertise, do you think there is a way for you to bring Jiang Yuning into fame again?&x201D;
&x201C;Give me half a year and I will make sure that she turns out to be a very successful artiste,&x201D; Vera replied Gu Pingsheng confidently as she stood with her arms crossed.
&x201C;I have to warn you. She is not an obedient artiste,&x201D; Gu Pingsheng said.
&x201C;Every artiste that I have managed had never been obedient at the start,&x201D; Vera replied indifferently.
Shen Yichen felt extremely uncomfortable after listening to Vera.
This was the exact reason why he could not understand why Gu Pingsheng wanted to invest in foreign talents. He had never enjoyed working with foreign agents due to the vast difference in their cultures and backgrounds.
&x201C;So, are you asking me to hand Jiang Yuning over to you?&x201D; Gu Pingsheng asked as he looked at Vera with a stern expression on his face.
&x201C;Chairman Gu, didn&x2019;t we sign the employment contract already? Since I am now officially working for Guangying Media, it is also my responsibility to pay attention to each of our artistes&x2019; development. Is there anything special about Jiang Yuning that prohibits me from being her agent?&x201D; Vera asked Gu Pingsheng with a skeptical expression on her face.
It was already obvious that Jiang Yuning had preferential treatment, since she was signed as an artiste under Guangying Media even though she was blacklisted in the entertainment industry.
Furthermore, the vice chairman of Guangying Media was still suspended from work because of Jiang Yuning. Who would believe that Jiang Yuning had nothing to do with Gu Pingsheng?
&x201C;Since you are interested in managing Jiang Yuning, I will give you an opportunity to be her official agent, Vera. However, I have to make it clear that as her agent, you are only allowed to handle matters relating to work. You should not get involved in or try to manage her personal matters,&x201D; Gu Pingsheng warned Vera in a very serious tone. &x201C;Furthermore, I will only give you three months to prove that you have the ability to manage Jiang Yuning. If you are still unable to do so after three months, you can no longer ask to manage Jiang Yuning in future. Do you understand what I am saying? If you agree to my conditions, I will arrange for Director Shen Yichen to transfer Jiang Yuning to be under your management later.&x201D;
&x201C;I understand,&x201D; Vera replied as she nodded her head.
&x201C;Is there anything else that anyone wants to say? If not, this is the end of our meeting today. Yichen, come over to my office after this,&x201D; Gu Pingsheng said, marking the end of the meeting.
After Gu Pingsheng spoke, everyone got up from their seats and started to leave the conference room.
Shen Yichen stared at Gu Pingsheng as he followed him back into his office. He felt very uneasy. &x201C;Boss, don&x2019;t you think that it might be a little reckless to let Vera manage Jiang Yuning? I am afraid that Jiang Yuning will be bullied.&x201D;
&x201C;You think that she will be bullied? Hm&x2026;&x201D; Gu Pingsheng asked. &x201C;Do you know how many people are looking out for that girl right now, including you and me? I am not sure who will be bullied. Don&x2019;t you think that the purpose Vera came is to look for Jiang Yuning?&x201D; Gu Pingsheng replied with a deep expression on his face. &x201C;Anyway, who would have the guts to bully Jiang Yuning? If anyone were to bully her, they would have to face Lu Jingzhi personally.&x201D;
