&x201C;I will let you know when we bump into her at the company in future.&x201D;
Vera initially thought that Jiang Yuning would care about what other people thought of her.
&x201C;That would not be necessary. I do not have so much time to waste worrying about what other people think about me.&x201D;
Jiang Yuning&x2019;s sentence immediately proved Vera&x2019;s assumption wrong and left her speechless.
Later that evening, Jiang Yuning watched the famous and highly popular variety show,
Jiang Yuning had already watched a few consecutive episodes and she felt as though her face was going to develop cramps from all that laughing.
She could tell that the production team had spent a lot of time and effort on the innovation of the program.
Furthermore, most of the sponsors for that variety show were big names in Luo City. Besides Guangying Media, one of the most luxurious hotels in Luo City was also one of the sponsors for the show.
After watching the most recent episode, Jiang Yuning looked at the time and she was shocked to discover that it was already 7.30 pm, yet second brother was not home yet.
Jiang Yuning took out her cell phone, intending to give Secretary Ho a call to ask about Lu Jingzhi&x2019;s whereabouts but at that moment, she suddenly received an incoming phone call from an unknown number.
&x201C;Yuning, I am your father.&x201D;
As soon as Jiang Yuning heard Jiang Zhitong&x2019;s voice, she was extremely excited and screamed, &x201C;Dad?&x201D;
&x201C;Do you have any free time tomorrow? If you are free, I will get someone to pick you up to meet up with me at Xiya Hotel.&x201D;
&x201C;Okay, dad,&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied immediately.
&x201C;Alright then. I will see you tomorrow.&x201D;
At this time, Jiang Yuning did not know how Jiang Zhitong was related to Xiya Hotel. She had thought that he had merely chosen the hotel as a location to meet with her and have a good chat.
Lu Jingzhi finally entered the villa at eight o&x2019;clock that night. As soon as he stepped into the house, he saw Jiang Yuning sitting on the sofa, leaning forward as she kept laughing.
&x201C;Second brother, come over here,&x201D; Jiang Yuning said, patting the empty spot next to her as soon as she saw Lu Jingzhi entering the house.
Lu Jingzhi took off his coat before he handed it over to Sister Liang. He then walked over to Jiang Yuning and sat beside her. &x201C;What is happening?&x201D;
&x201C;Do you think that I have the talent to be funny?&x201D; Jiang Yuning asked Lu Jingzhi as she pointed at herself.
Lu Jingzhi looked at Jiang Yuning and he thought for a short while before he replied, &x201C;I guess that the rating of 4.0 that has been received by the television dramas that you starred in already proves that you have the talent to be funny.&x201D;
&x201C;As my boyfriend, you are not qualified to give me any opinions because you will not take me seriously and you will always be biased,&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied as she looked scornfully at Lu Jingzhi. &x201C;So, what if the television drama only achieved a 4.0 rating? I gave it my best too!&x201D;
Lu Jingzhi looked at Jiang Yuning helplessly. In the end, he replied, &x201C;You know very well that I only watch the news to keep up with current events on weekdays. Do you know how I felt when I had to watch those television dramas that I do not really enjoy?&x201D;
Jiang Yuning laughed out loud as soon as she heard Lu Jingzhi&x2019;s explanation. &x201C;Well, it must have been really hard on you then.&x201D;
&x201C;But I watched it anyway because that was the only way that I would get to see you,&x201D; Lu Jingzhi replied in a serious manner.
As soon as she heard what Lu Jingzhi said, Jiang Yuning buried herself in Lu Jingzhi&x2019;s arms and hugged him tightly before she said, &x201C;It is okay, second brother. Now, you can see me everyday and we even sleep together at night. We do not need to waste any more time watching lousy television shows rated 4.0 in future. I will work hard for your sake and only act in good television shows in future.&x201D;
&x201C;It&x2019;s okay. The reason why I had watched it&x2026;I just wanted to see you.&x201D;
It was obvious that the only reason why Lu Jingzhi watched those television dramas was because of Jiang Yuning.
Jiang Yuning felt extremely loved and she had the urge to pounce on Lu Jingzhi but she had to control herself and she held back because Sister Liang had not gotten off work yet.
&x201C;Oh, second brother, I forgot to tell you that I will be meeting my father in the morning tomorrow.&x201D;
Lu Jingzhi waved his hand as he got up from the sofa and said, &x201C;Okay, go ahead and meet him. I am going upstairs now to take a shower.&x201D;
After that, Lu Jingzhi started walking up the stairs but after taking a few steps, he turned around and looked at Jiang Yuning. &x201C;Aren&x2019;t you coming?&x201D;
&x201C;I am coming&x2026;&x201D; Jiang Yuning turned off the television immediately and quickly put on her slippers as she chased after Lu Jingzhi.
Jiang Yuning did not tell Vera about anything relating to her family. Shen Yichen had also advised her to keep her personal life a secret from Vera until they could find out about who she really was and what her intentions were.
Therefore, the next morning, Jiang Yuning simply told Vera that she was at Grandpa Tan&x2019;s courtyard instead of revealing that she was in fact meeting her father at Xiya Hotel.
Xiya Hotel was one of the most luxurious hotels in Luo City and was located by the seaside where most of the hustle and bustle was.
Jiang Yuning had previously been to Xiya Hotel a couple of times to attend some events and the only thing she was able to remember was that the interior of the hotel was as luxurious as a palace. She did not know why her father had chosen to meet up with her at this hotel.
When she arrived at the hotel, the hotel staff immediately brought her to the office area. At this time, there were already some faint suspicions in Jiang Yuning&x2019;s heart but she did not want to simply conclude before meeting her father.
&x201C;Miss Jiang, we are here.&x201D; The hotel staff pushed the door of an office open and smiled before asking Jiang Yuning to enter the office.
Jiang Yuning looked into the office and she saw Jiang Zhitong sitting behind a desk, wearing a mask as he worked.
&x201C;Yuning, you are here,&x201D; Jiang Zhitong said as he looked up at Jiang Yuning. He immediately placed down the pen that he was holding and closed the document that he had in his hand.
&x201C;This&x2026;what is going on here?&x201D; Jiang Yuning asked in amazement at what she was looking at.
&x201C;I had wanted to wait for the perfect opportunity to sit down and chat with you so that I would be able explain everything to you, as well as to introduce you to someone who saved me. However, she is in a critical condition right now and she has to go overseas for an operation. As I want to accompany her, I have asked you to come over here today because I wanted to get this settled before I leave,&x201D; Jiang Zhitong explained as he took out a document for the transfer of shares for Xiya Hotel that he had already prepared beforehand. &x201C;Sign it.&x201D;
&x201C;What is this?&x201D;
&x201C;It is the transfer document for 7% of shares of Xiya Hotel worldwide,&x201D; Jiang Zhitong replied immediately. &x201C;The person that I would like you to meet is Auntie Yun Xuan. She was the one who saved me five years ago and she gave me the opportunity to become the person that I am today. Now that she has fallen ill, I want to repay her kindness and accompany her as she seeks treatment abroad. I will even accompany her to seek treatment throughout the entire world until her condition stabilizes. The person that I worry most about in Luo City is you. Therefore, I want to transfer these shares to you so you can have more confidence to do anything that you want to.&x201D;
&x201C;I know that you have never had the greed for such material things, but dad is already old now. One of my greatest wishes now is to see Fu Yahui and Huo Zhendong getting their rightful punishment for all the crimes that they have committed. Secondly, I would like to see you getting married and settling down with a good man. The reason why I am giving you these shares as a gift is because I want you to be able to raise your head and be confident when you face the Lu family. This will be your dowry. You are the daughter of Jiang Zhitong and I will not let you suffer anymore.&x201D;
&x201C;After the court announces its verdict on Dongheng Enterprise, I will also give you everything. That is the least that I could do for you as your father.&x201D;
&x201C;I do not want it,&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied as tears welled up in her eyes.
&x201C;Silly girl. I do not need you to come and manage the hotel. There are other people in charge of managing it on our behalf, so you can continue doing whatever it is that you want to do. I will also inform all of Xiya Hotel&x2019;s employees of your identity.&x201D;
&x201C;That&x2026;then when can I see you again, dad? I miss you already. What should I do?&x201D;
&x201C;Technology is so advanced nowadays. You can video call me whenever you feel like seeing me, okay?&x201D; Jiang Zhitong replied as he patted his daughter gently on the head. &x201C;You have already grown up and you are such a mature and filial girl. Dad is relieved.&x201D;
Jiang Yuning remained silent as she held back her tears. She could feel her throat burning.
She had only just reunited with her father and they did not even have the time to reconnect, but he was leaving her again.
&x201C;I will meet up with Jiang Muyang later in the afternoon. That poor child should not carry the burden of the Jiang family anymore.&x201D;
