Chapter 134: I Will Be Hypoxic
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
Since the official recording would only be held in the afternoon the next day, Jiang Yuning immediately left the studio with Vera after the rehearsals.
Vera was silent throughout the journey back and it seemed as though she was already less arrogant.
&x201C;What happened? Have you become mute?&x201D; Jiang Yuning who was seated in the back seat, could not help but to ask Vera.
&x201C;You could have taken this opportunity to replace me but why didn&x2019;t you do it?&x201D; Vera asked. This was her main concern right now because she could not understand what was going on in Jiang Yuning&x2019;s mind.
&x201C;Why should I replace you with someone else? Didn&x2019;t you announce arrogantly that you have the ability to make me beg you to stay after these three months? I am still waiting to see that happen,&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied as she laughed out loud. &x201C;I did not do that just so I could teach you a lesson. The reason why I had done that today was to prove that I am capable of doing things beyond anyone&x2019;s imagination. I also wanted you to know that the entertainment industry in China is not as simple as the entertainment industry abroad.&x201D;
&x201C;Why didn&x2019;t you tell me that you are a major shareholder of Xiya Hotel?&x201D;
&x201C;It is because I had never intended to use my identity as a major shareholder of Xiya Hotel to gain a role for myself. However, I realized that I was being too naive. Since I was already being bullied and looked down on, I should just make use of the resources that I have on hand. However, I do not intend to disclose this information to the public and I will not use my identity as a shareholder of Xiya Hotel to assert any authority over you. Therefore, you can feel free to continue bullying me as you did before.&x201D; Jiang Yuning looked at her cell phone as soon as she finished speaking.
&x201C;I thought that the Jiang family went bankrupt? When did you become a major shareholder of Xiya Hotel? If you had all that wealth and power, then why&x2026;&x201D;
Vera did not reply because she almost revealed the reason why she came here.
Why did she have to drag Jiang Muyang down and hold on to him for so many years? Did the brother and sister have a secret that they could not reveal to the public?
Jiang Yuning immediately knew that Vera was hiding something from her. She was not called a fox for no reason.
However, Jiang Yuning did not say anything.
&x201C;This is my personal matter&x2026;I guess I do not need to explain anything to you, right? You can just drop me off at the entrance of Happy Garden.&x201D;
Vera chose to remain silent because she was afraid that she would screw up and accidentally expose her own secret again. She dropped Jiang Yuning off at the entrance of Happy Garden without asking any further questions.
Jiang Yuning opened the car door and stepped out of the car immediately after Vera stopped the car. After watching Vera drive away, Jiang Yuning gave Lu Jingzhi a call. &x201C;Second brother, come and pick me up. I want to go home.&x201D;
Ten minutes later, a black car arrived in front of Happy Garden and Jiang Yuning quickly got into the car. She arrived at the villa a short while later.
&x201C;Second brother, I have a feeling that Vera knows something about the Jiang family. However, I cannot seem to figure out how she is connected to the Jiang family or what she might know about us. I really cannot figure out why she is so hostile towards me.&x201D;
Lu Jingzhi looked at Jiang Yuning and he immediately noticed her wet hair. He reached out and held onto her hand before asking, &x201C;What happened today?&x201D;
&x201C;How can I not sweat this much when I have been wearing a robot suit the entire day?&x201D; Jiang Yuning laughed as she took the time to explain everything that had happened to Lu Jingzhi.
Lu Jingzhi listened attentively to Jiang Yuning&x2019;s story and he smiled before replying, &x201C;I told you that you had the ability to win people over.&x201D;
&x201C;I would not deny it since I managed to win you over anyway,&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied with a smug expression on her face. She soaked in the bathtub and relaxed as Lu Jingzhi gently massaged her scalp for her. &x201C;Second brother, do you ever miss me when you are at work?&x201D;
&x201C;What about you?&x201D; Lu Jingzhi asked as he bowed his head to look at Jiang Yuning. He moved his hands gently, as though he was afraid that he would hurt Jiang Yuning otherwise.
&x201C;I miss you all the time but I am going to join the cast of
&x201C;Just a little?&x201D;
Jiang Yuning turned around to face Lu Jingzhi as she grabbed his hand and placed it directly under her chin. &x201C;I have never relied on anyone, not even my brother in the past. Even though the both of us were in Luo City, we rarely had the opportunity to meet up and talk or spend time together. I was always alone most of the time.&x201D;
&x201C;Besides my grandpa, I never had anyone to worry about. Although my heart would occasionally ache when I thought about you, I never had to worry about leaving anyone behind.&x201D;
&x201C;I feel as though my heart is being sliced into pieces whenever I think about being away from you.&x201D;
Lu Jingzhi held tightly onto her hand and said, &x201C;You are exaggerating.&x201D;
&x201C;It is true. I don&x2019;t think that I can ever live without you.&x201D;
Lu Jingzhi stared right into her bright and sparkling eyes, and he leaned over and kissed her gently on the lips before saying, &x201C;I will always be right here waiting for you.&x201D;
Anyway, I have already gotten used to waiting for you.
&x201C;Will you be bringing any other woman home when I am not around? Will Grandpa Lu arrange for you to go on a blind date? You have to promise me that I will always be your one and only. Afterall, we have just gotten together not long ago.&x201D;
Lu Jingzhi laughed as soon as he heard what Jiang Yuning was concerned about.
&x201C;You can be rest assured because there are absolutely no women working with me.&x201D;
Jiang Yuning was stunned for a moment before she continued washing her hair. After she was done showering, she immediately pounced onto Lu Jingzhi&x2019;s body. &x201C;After I start filming, I will ask Director Shen Yichen to try making some arrangements for me. I will try and sneak back to see you on the days where I do not need to film anything. I will be hypoxic if I do not get to see or smell you for such a long time.&x201D;
Jiang Yuning continued hanging onto Lu Jingzhi like a child.
She was a completely different person in comparison to her behavior earlier that day when she was confronting the director of
Aside from Lu Jingzhi, there was no one else who would have the opportunity to see Jiang Yuning acting so childishly.
She was such an adorable little fox. How could he not love her?
The sky was slightly pinkish the next morning.
As Jiang Yuning had just woken up, she was still in a daze when she saw Lu Jingzhi standing in front of the dressing table. Although she could only see his back view, she found it extremely attractive and alluring. Therefore, Jiang Yuning quickly grabbed her cell phone and took a picture of Lu Jingzhi before she replaced it as the screensaver for her cell phone.
Lu Jingzhi turned around when he heard the sound of the camera shutter. When he saw Jiang Yuning changing the screensaver on her cell phone, he immediately asked, &x201C;Aren&x2019;t you afraid of getting discovered?&x201D;
&x201C;Hehehe. I am not afraid! There are so many pictures of you participating in various events all over the internet. If I get discovered, I will just say that I had downloaded the picture from the internet,&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied as she smiled.
Lu Jingzhi patted her on her head gently as he glanced at his watch helplessly. &x201C;It is still early. You can continue sleeping for a little while.&x201D;
&x201C;I don&x2019;t want to sleep anymore. I want to accompany you when you eat your breakfast.&x201D;
Jiang Yuning kicked the quilt aside and got out of the bed. She chuckled as soon as she looked at Lu Jingzhi. &x201C;I am really helpless when it comes to you. Your father is waiting for me downstairs. I am going out to meet him.&x201D;
&x201C;Why is my dad doing a sneak attack early in the morning? Furthermore, why is he only here to see you and not me?&x201D;
Was he perhaps trying to test his son-in-law?
Jiang Yuning quickly washed up before the both of them walked downstairs, hand-in-hand. At this time, Jiang Zhitong was waiting in the garden together with his assistant.
Jiang Zhitong turned around and smiled as soon as he saw his daughter.
&x201C;Why do you only want to meet second brother and not me?&x201D;
&x201C;Men have conversations that they want to have in private. That is why a girl like you should not be interrupting,&x201D; Jiang Zhitong replied as he pinched Jiang Yuning&x2019;s nose lightly.
&x201C;Are you also here because you want to warn second brother not to bully me? My brother has already done that and second brother really dotes on me. So, you are not allowed to bully him.&x201D;
Jiang Zhitong could not help but sigh.
&x201C;If I had strongly opposed to your grandfather&x2019;s intention of arranging the engagement between you and Lu Zongye, I might have been able to be a grandfather today.&x201D; Jiang Zhitong felt that it was a pity. He was a culprit that had almost robbed his own daughter of her happiness. &x201C;Jingzhi, I really hope that Yuning did not choose to be together with you just to repay you for everything that you had done and sacrificed for her.&x201D;
&x201C;No! It is not to repay him. In fact, I had already started to have a crush on him ever since I was twelve years old. However, nobody had known about it,&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied immediately.
