&x201C;If you are already accustomed to the methods that you have used to manage your artistes when you were abroad, then you can go home and continue being as strict and rude as you were then. Why do I have to accept it or bear with it? Moreover, the way that you speak is not sharp&x2026;it is as though you have no manners at all.&x201D;
Jiang Yuning refuted all of Vera&x2019;s statements.
&x201C;I admit that I am an artiste who has already been blacklisted and that I have an extremely bad reputation. However, I do not believe that I will shoot to fame immediately just because you are my exclusive agent now. In fact, I feel as if the nine years of education that I had is wasted simply by talking to you. Are you certain that by being my agent, you would be able to bring me up to fame instead of getting the public to violently berate me in the streets?&x201D; Jiang Yuning could not help but sneer.
&x201C;Vera, I have already been in the entertainment industry for five years now. I am neither a newcomer nor an actress who would be so easily manipulated by you. If you want to work with me, then you had better work on your attitude before you appear before me again. If you feel that I am incurable and that there is no hope for me, then you can simply withdraw yourself from having to be my agent. However, since you have specifically requested to be my agent, I believe that you will not withdraw yourself so easily.&x201D;
&x201C;Did you really think that I would just succumb to whatever you say?&x201D;
&x201C;I am not afraid of anything. I do not have a lot of fears. If I had to choose between happiness or fame and fortune, I would choose the former without any hesitation at all. Did you really think that you understand me and know me thoroughly just by reading through a few pages of information on me? You are too naive.&x201D;
&x201C;Mutual respect is the most basic motto in my life. If you do not have any mutual respect for me, then there is nothing else for us to talk about.&x201D;
Jiang Yuning continued speaking, sentence after sentence without giving Vera the chance to refute anything that she had just said.
&x201C;Last but not least, do not use such cheap spray perfume when you are driving me in future. This is also an insult to our frontline entertainment company.&x201D; Jiang Yuning opened the car door and got out of the car immediately after Vera stepped on the emergency brakes.
&x201C;Did uncle really have a shortage of talent? If Vera is considered a talent, then anyone on the streets could easily be called a competent person.&x201D;
Jiang Yuning and Vera subsequently went in the opposite direction because Jiang Yuning wanted to return to Grandpa Tan&x2019;s courtyard and continue smelling the fragrant smell of herbs.
At this moment, Vera&x2019;s face was extremely red and she was shaking from the anger that she was feeling inside.
She had not expected to be completely ridiculed by Jiang Yuning the very first time they met. She had almost lost control and let her emotions take over.
Jiang Yuning was really capable indeed.
On the other hand, Jiang Yuning was in an extremely good mood and she was smiling brightly when she returned to the courtyard.
&x201C;What good thing has happened to you? Why are you so happy?&x201D; Grandpa Tan asked as soon as he saw Jiang Yuning.
&x201C;I have offended someone. Is that considered a good thing?&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied playfully.
&x201C;You are such a weird girl&x2026;full of so many different gimmicks.&x201D;
Jiang Yuning smiled without replying. She knew very well that she would definitely not be able to cooperate or work with someone as contemptuous and arrogant as Vera.
Shortly after Jiang Yuning got off her car, Vera parked her car by the side of the road before taking out her cell phone and making an international phone call.
&x201C;Qing Yu, I have just met up with Jiang Yuning. She is ten million times more despicable and annoying than what you had described her to be. I really do not understand why Jiang Muyang would give up everything that he had and return to China for someone like her. He had even hurt you so much in the process!&x201D;
&x201C;Vera, Jiang Yuning is not as simple as she looks. You must be very careful when you deal with her. You have to approach her gently. If you use force, you will not be able to get close to her at all,&x201D; the female voice on the phone replied Vera in a very gentle and calm manner.
&x201C;You want me to deal with her nicely? That is too difficult!&x201D;
&x201C;If you do not do that, you will not be able to get close to her at all.&x201D;
Vera remained silent as she thought about it for a moment. Since it would be useless to use force against Jiang Yuning, she would have no other choice but to be polite and nice to get closer to her.
&x201C;I think you are right. I should just bear with her and pretend to be nice to her now. Once I gain her trust, she will believe everything that I tell her and follow all of my plans without any complaints.&x201D;
There was nothing in this world that she could not get as long as she was patient.
Five years ago, when Ku Jie had returned to China from abroad, he had just ended a relationship with his girlfriend then. At that time, Ku Jie and his girlfriend were already facing many problems in their relationship. Therefore, when the Jiang family met with the unexpected misfortune, he did not think twice before he returned to China to take care of his sister, Jiang Yuning.
However, the other party did not think that way.
She hated Jiang Yuning because she blamed everything on her.
She believed Jiang Yuning to be the one who dragged Jiang Muyang back to China, and the reason why he had abandoned her.
&x201C;Vera, we are best friends who are as close as real sisters. Please do not ever betray me because of Jiang Yuning. If that happens, I will really collapse.&x201D;
&x201C;No, Qing Yu. That would never happen. You do not have to worry,&x201D; Vera assured her friend immediately. &x201C;You saved me. You are the reason I am still here today&x2026;&x201D;
Very soon, it was already night time in Luo City.
Although the rain had stopped during the day, it started pouring again as night approached.
Grandpa Tan could not help but sigh when he looked at the rain. All his herbs were starting to get moldy. Must it really rain this much in Luo City in June?
A black figure appeared at the door, holding onto an umbrella, and Jiang Yuning smiled as soon as she looked up at him. She quickly put the herbs that she was holding in her hands down and said, &x201C;Grandpa Tan, I am going home now.&x201D;
&x201C;Go, go, go,&x201D; the old man replied as he waved his hand.
Jiang Yuning quickly ran over to the man, taking shelter under his umbrella as the two of them walked to the car together.
&x201C;Second brother, uncle has arranged for another agent to be in charge of me but I really do not think that I can work well with her. I met her for the first time today and we already had an intense confrontation.&x201D; Jiang Yuning could not help but complain as soon as she saw Lu Jingzhi.
&x201C;Did you lose?&x201D;
&x201C;Do I look like a loser?&x201D; Jiang Yuning asked as she rolled her eyes at Lu Jingzhi. &x201C;After the incident involving Lu Zongye, I will never let anyone bully me again. If anyone tries to upset me, I will make sure that they end up getting more upset!&x201D;
Lu Jingzhi chuckled at Jiang Yuning&x2019;s reaction. He leaned towards her and whispered into her ears, &x201C;I knew that you would definitely win. If you cannot handle her, I can send&x2026;&x201D;
&x201C;Second brother, I am merely complaining to you to get it off my chest. This is such a small matter that I can handle by myself. Do not underestimate me!&x201D;
Jiang Yuning quickly interrupted the second young master before he could finish his sentence. She knew that if he stepped in, Vera would be asked to pack up and leave China immediately.
&x201C;I have already told you that I will never let you lose. I will not let you suffer any grievances,&x201D; Lu Jingzhi said as he kissed Jiang Yuning gently on her lips. &x201C;I will not let anyone bully you. No one at all.&x201D;
&x201C;What if you are the one bullying me?&x201D; Jiang Yuning teased Lu Jingzhi.
&x201C;That would never happen in this lifetime,&x201D; Lu Jingzhi replied instantly as he looked into Jiang Yuning&x2019;s eyes.
&x201C;This lifetime is so long!&x201D;
&x201C;I will always control my own emotions and I will never hurt you.&x201D;
&x201C;Alright, I will stop teasing you already. Second brother, do not worry, I will not let anyone bully me. If I were to get bullied and can no longer handle things on my own, I will be sure to inform you immediately so that you can teach them a lesson, okay?&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied as she looked back at Lu Jingzhi.
She should have known that Lu Jingzhi would take this matter very seriously.
At this time, Jiang Yuning suddenly received a phone call from Grandpa Tan.
&x201C;Yuning, your father has just called to tell me that he would be coming over to my house&x2026;would you like to take the opportunity&x2026;&x201D;
&x201C;Yes,&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied decisively. &x201C;Grandpa Tan, I will turn the car around and return to your house now. Please help me stall him for as long as you can.&x201D;
&x201C;I will. He is also on the way here now. It is raining, make sure to take care of your safety on your way here.&x201D;
Jiang Yuning felt very confused emotionally after receiving the phone call from Grandpa Tan.
Lu Jingzhi held tightly onto her hands and tried to comfort her and calm her down.
&x201C;Second brother, I am afraid.&x201D;
&x201C;I am here. There is nothing that you need to be afraid of,&x201D; Lu Jingzhi replied as he hugged Jiang Yuning tightly to give her the warmth and assurance that she needed.
