Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
At the same time, Jiang Yuning had also received news that Huo Yuxi had tried to commit suicide by cutting her own wrist. However, she was discovered by a servant who was working the morning shift and she was subsequently sent to the hospital. She was already out of danger at this time, but it was obvious that she no longer had the will to live.
A large number of reporters had started gathering outside the hospital as soon as they heard the news. They wanted to obtain some inside information from Huo Yuxi.
Both of her parents had already been arrested and Huo Yuxi was now in an extremely miserable and depressed state.
Huo Yuxi knew that she had already lost everything that she had and that she was already on the verge of dying, but she wanted to see Jiang Yuning for the last time.
Therefore, she took the initiative to make a phone call to Jiang Yuning: &x201C;Jiang Yuning, I would like to meet you for one last time&x2026;I need some closure.&x201D;
&x201C;But I do not want to meet up with you alone and I do not want to waste any more time on you.&x201D; Jiang Yuning instantly refused.
&x201C;Yeah. If I were you, I would also be having a good laugh at the situation that I am in right now,&x201D; Huo Yuxi replied in a self-deprecating manner. &x201C;I want to know why you never seemed to be bothered even though I tried so hard to snatch everything that you had. If you do not care about all that, then is it that you actually care about? What is so different about the two of us? Can you tell me the reason? You have also lost everything that you had, but why are you not upset or afraid of anything? Are you not afraid of being trampled on? I was once trampled on and bullied, and I still have nightmares because of that. I do not want to be bullied anymore. I do not want anyone to look down on me&x2026;&x201D;
&x201C;The difference between both of us is that I am not afraid of losing anything,&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied. &x201C;All you see is what you do not have, but I see and appreciate everything that I have. Huo Yuxi, it is very easy to give up and choose to die, but at that time, you would really lose everything that you have. The saddest thing would be to not have anyone who would be willing to send you off even when you die&x2026;&x201D;
Jiang Yuning was about to hang up the phone after speaking when Huo Yuxi suddenly made a request. &x201C;I have one last request. Can you please help me?&x201D;
After listening to Huo Yuxi&x2019;s request, Jiang Yuning agreed to help her.
She might have been feeling sentimental because of the recent rainy weather in Luo City.
As Fu Yahui and Huo Zhendong had already been arrested and with all the chaos that was going on right now, it was only a matter of time before Dongheng Enterprise finally collapsed.
When that time finally comes, Jiang Zhitong will step up to acquire and take over Dongheng Enterprise&x2019;s shares but right now, they needed to wait patiently&x2026;
It started raining heavily in Luo City later that night.
In the quiet hospital ward, two men dressed in full black suits suddenly pushed the door open before they looked at Huo Yuxi who was resting on the hospital bed. &x201C;We have already prepared a car for you outside. Please come with us.&x201D;
Huo Yuxi was wearing the johnny gown and she brought nothing with her as she followed the two men directly to the hospital&x2019;s underground parking lot.
The reporters could not see Huo Yuxi, who was hidden inside the black car with tinted windows, as she left the hospital. The two men were about to drive her out to a small and hidden village dozens of kilometres away from Luo City because Huo Yuxi had requested for Jiang Yuning&x2019;s help in sending her to a temple to recuperate.
She wanted to spent the remaining part of her life in this manner.
As soon as they drove out of Luo City, the black car suddenly stopped at a junction right before the turning into the highway.
Huo Yuxi saw Jiang Yuning stepping out of another black car parked at the side of the road and very soon, she was standing before Huo Yuxi. Jiang Yuning placed a box in front of Huo Yuxi before saying, &x201C;This is my last shred of kindness towards you.&x201D;
Huo Yuxi felt a burning sensation in her throat and she could not say anything.
Jiang Yuning had already expected that Huo Yuxi would not thank her or say anything. Therefore, she turned around and started walking back to her car. At this time, Lu Jingzhi suddenly stepped out of the other side of the car and quickly rushed over as he held an umbrella over Jiang Yuning.
&x201C;It is raining.&x201D;
&x201C;It is okay. It is just drizzling,&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied as she put her hands around Lu Jingzhi&x2019;s waist as the both of them squeezed under the umbrella.
Huo Yuxi was surprised and her eyes were wide open as she saw how intimate they were. She had never expected that Jiang Yuning would actually be together with Lu Jingzhi.
Jiang Yuning was actually together with Lu Jingzhi, the heir of the Lu family and the most mysterious man in the whole of Luo City.
Furthermore, Lu Jingzhi had gotten out of the car to personally shield Jiang Yuning from the rain even though it was just a few steps away.
This was Lu Jingzhi, the man that every woman in Luo City dreamt about, and he was Jiang Yuning&x2019;s man.
On the other hand, she had struggled and fought so hard just to get an impostor.
It was really ridiculous.
If Huo Yuxi had the opportunity to be together with Lu Jingzhi, she would never have been interested in a man like Lu Zongye either.
Huo Yuxi finally realized that she had been utterly defeated.
After getting into the car, Jiang Yuning stared at Lu Jingzhi as he put the umbrella away and she could not help but ask, &x201C;Second brother, why did you get off the car? Huo Yuxi would have now already seen you.&x201D;
&x201C;So what if she has seen me?&x201D; Lu Jingzhi asked immediately. &x201C;I want her to know that you have me. She would have to think twice before trying to pick a fight with you.&x201D;
&x201C;She cannot and she would not dare to.&x201D;
However, Jiang Yuning did not know that Lu Jingzhi&x2019;s appearance had indeed completely wiped out the flame in Huo Yuxi&x2019;s heart.
Second brother had indeed done it on purpose&x2026;
He had gotten off the car deliberately just so that he could declare that he was in a relationship with Jiang Yuning. He wanted to give Huo Yuxi a warning indirectly.
&x201C;That would be best.&x201D;
&x201C;That is why I had said that you should not have gotten off the car. Second brother, why are you always doing everything just for me?&x201D; Jiang Yuning asked as she sighed.
&x201C;Who else should I have done it for, if not for you?&x201D;
Jiang Yuning did not reply and the only thing that she could do was to give him a kiss. Unfortunately, they were in the car and they would have to endure it even though they felt that they were about to lose control.
After a short drive, the black car finally turned into the gate of the villa. Lu Jingzhi did not get off the car upon their arrival, but he merely instructed the driver to get off work and to go home.
&x201C;Second brother, what are you doing?&x201D; Jiang Yuning asked. Her heartbeat accelerated. &x201C;Why did you ask the driver to leave?&x201D;
&x201C;It is already so late at night. It is time for him to get off work,&x201D; Lu Jingzhi said as he turned around and placed his hands around Jiang Yuning&x2019;s waist.
&x201C;What about us?&x201D; Jiang Yuning asked.
&x201C;What do you think?&x201D;
At this time, the rain started getting heavier.
After having an intimate session in the car, Lu Jingzhi carried Jiang Yuning out of the car into the villa.
&x201C;Second brother, I am so sleepy,&x201D; Jiang Yuning said as she rested her head against Lu Jingzhi&x2019;s chest.
&x201C;You are tired? Then just sleep. I am here.&x201D;
&x201C;I will sleep then&x2026;&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied as she buried her face in Lu Jingzhi&x2019;s chest.
&x201C;Goodnight, my dear.&x201D; Lu Jingzhi smiled as he carried Jiang Yuning in his arms and headed towards their bedroom.
The Jiang family finally had some closure, even though Jiang Yuning knew that the Jiang family was long gone.
However, she was still contented because Fu Yahui and Huo Zhendong were finally going to pay the price for what they had done.
It was late at night and the both of them had just taken a shower.
Jiang Yuning cuddled up against Lu Jingzhi and she could not help but ask, &x201C;Second brother, why has my father not come and look for me even though he is alive?&x201D;
