Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
The atmosphere was quiet as they headed back to the villa after Lu Jingzhi had a couple of drinks with his friends.
Lu Jingzhi leaned back against the backseat and his body exuded the sweet scent of red wine.
&x201C;Are you sleepy?&x201D; Jiang Yuning asked as she held his hand. &x201C;Do you want to rest your head on my lap?&x201D;
Lu Jingzhi did not reply and all that could be heard was the sound of his heavy breathing. After a short while, Lu Jingzhi suddenly spoke, &x201C;Yuning&x2026;&x201D;
&x201C;Yes?&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied. &x201C;What is wrong?&x201D;
&x201C;Nothing,&x201D; Lu Jingzhi replied as he sighed.
&x201C;Actually, when I heard your good friends talking about how you have never experienced being in any relationships during your schooling days, I&x2026;I can only think that it is so regrettable. I wish that I had the opportunity to be involved in your life. Therefore, I was thinking about it when we were having dinner. I thought about how perfect it would have been if I had known about our feelings for one another earlier&x2026;I could have washed your dirty socks for you during high school, I could have looked for you and have lunch with you during your lunch breaks, and we could have just hidden under a tree in the woods during your break, and held hands and done some bad things together,&x201D; Jiang Yuning said, filled with regrets.
&x201C;It&x2019;s okay. Even if I have never experienced all of that, you are still the only woman who has ever gotten this close to me,&x201D; Lu Jingzhi replied as he opened his eyes and pulled Jiang Yuning into a hug.
&x201C;Second brother&x2026;when you called my name earlier&x2026;are you about to say what I am thinking in my mind right now?&x201D; Jiang Yuning asked as she raised her head to look up at Lu Jingzhi.
&x201C;Do you know what I am thinking about?&x201D;
&x201C;I want to&x2026;get married,&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied in a very serious manner.
Lu Jingzhi, who was initially sleepy, was suddenly jolted wide awake.
&x201C;I know that you have been suppressing your own thoughts and desires because you are worried about me, but I have told you before and I mean it when I said that I can become Mrs. Lu now even though I am still young. I want to be a part of your life. You have already waited so many years before finally getting to be with me. I do not want to wait any longer. Let us get married, okay?&x201D;
Lu Jingzhi could only feel a string tugging at his heart after listening to Jiang Yuning&x2019;s words.
His palms started sweating and Jiang Yuning could feel it as she held onto his hand.
Though he wanted to marry her, he did not want to marry her so casually.
This was because there were so many things that he wanted Jiang Yuning to have.
&x201C;Okay, let us get married, but you would have to follow my arrangements,&x201D; Lu Jingzhi finally answered after a long consideration.
Jiang Yuning could finally relax after hearing Lu Jingzhi&x2019;s answer.
Lu Jingzhi hugged Jiang Yuning tightly in his arms and he was feeling very excited but he had to hold his excitement back. After entering the gates of the villa, he told the driver, &x201C;You can get off work now.&x201D;
Jiang Yuning would become his wife soon and from then on, both of them would be linked together for life.
On the other hand, Jian Shaoqi had just returned home and the first thing that he did was to barge into the garbage&x2019;s room, directly interrupting whatever he was doing with a female model.
&x201C;Elder brother&x2026;it is already so late at night. Can you at least knock before entering my room?&x201D; the second young master of the Jian family asked as he quickly used the quilt to cover himself and the woman behind him.
&x201C;I will leave after saying a few words. There is an actress named Mu Xian. Is she your woman?&x201D; Jian Shaoqi asked immediately.
&x201C;Yes&x2026;she is. What happened?&x201D;
&x201C;Did she ask you to arrange for some people to deal with Jiang Yuning?&x201D; Jian Shaoqi continued questioning.
&x201C;She did request that I help her to do that. There is apparently a conflict between them,&x201D; the second young master of the Jian family replied honestly as he nodded his head. This was because he had always idolized and worshipped his elder brother ever since he was young and he wanted to impress his elder brother.
&x201C;You must be really courageous to even think about dealing with Jiang Yuning. I want you to go out and settle this matter right now. Jiang Yuning is not someone that you should touch. I think that I do not need to teach you what you need to do, right?&x201D;
The second young master of the Jian family nodded his head immediately. &x201C;I understand. I know what I have to do.&x201D;
&x201C;Make sure that you open your eyes and look properly before you back anyone up in future.&x201D; After that, Jian Shaoqi closed the bedroom door and left immediately.
The second young master of the Jian family knew that he had offended someone that he should not have. Therefore, he quickly put on his clothes and headed to Mu Xian&x2019;s house despite it already being late at night.
When Jian Shaoqi glared at him earlier, he felt as though his elder brother was about to kill him.
&x201C;Shaoming, why are you here in the middle of the night?&x201D; Mu Xian asked. She was caught off guard because her man arrived at her house all of a sudden and she did not even have the time to change out of her pyjamas.
Jian Shaoming took a pile of cash out of his wallet before throwing it at Mu Xian. &x201C;Do not look for me anymore in future.&x201D;
&x201C;Shaoming, what happened?&x201D;
&x201C;In the past, I had let it go even though I knew that you had been using my name to get what you want in the entertainment industry. I did not mind because you were not hurting anyone at that time,. However, I have realized that the more I condone you, the more you think that you are invincible. You have almost gotten me into trouble this time. Mu Xian, I hope that you remember that you are just someone that I am sleeping with. You are not officially Mrs. Jian,&x201D; Jian Shaoming replied in a cold manner.
&x201C;Shaoming, did I do anything wrong?&x201D; Mu Xian asked. She did not understand why he would suddenly want to cut all ties with her when everything had gone well earlier that day.
&x201C;You know very well what you have done. I have already spread the news and informed Guangying Media that I will no longer support you.&x201D;
After saying all that he had to say, Jian Shaoming left Mu Xian&x2019;s house immediately.
Mu Xian sat on the edge of her bed in a daze.
She had just been suspended from work for three months earlier that day and now, her sponsor was also leaving her.
How was she going to continue working in Guangying Media in future?
Mu Xian finally started to worry. In the past, she had made many enemies in Guangying Media because she had Jian Shaoming to back her up. If those people that she had offended in the past were to find out that she had fallen out with Jian Shaoming, she would be faced with endless ridicule and humiliation.
How did this happen?
Mu Xian continued sitting on her bed. She simply could not understand what she had done wrong.
Weren&x2019;t you thinking of ways to deal with Jiang Yuning?
Now, you would not even know the source of your own death.
Vera received the news that Mu Xian&x2019;s gold sponsor had withdrawn all form of financial aid and support when she got into work the next day. The news that Mu Xian was abandoned by her gold sponsor had already spread throughout the entire Guangying Media.
Vera immediately gave Jiang Yuning a phone call to convey the news to her. However, Jiang Yuning merely snorted after listening to Vera.
When Lu Jingzhi asked her to go out and settle the bill last night, he had probably discussed this matter with his friends.
&x201C;Aren&x2019;t you curious at all? Or is this perhaps something to do with you?&x201D;
&x201C;Yes, this has something to do with me. Second brother&x2019;s friend had received news of Mu Xian asking her gold sponsor to help her hire someone to teach me a lesson.&x201D; Jiang Yuning admitted to the truth immediately.
&x201C;That is why she deserves it. She tried to stab you in the back but unfortunately, she shot herself in the foot instead,&x201D; Vera replied emotionlessly.
&x201C;I thought that you would be questioning my character once again.&x201D;
&x201C;This is a different matter altogether. Furthermore, I know that that person in your house would not be able to let this matter go so easily upon finding out about it.&x201D; Vera did not understand why she was speaking up for Jiang Yuning.
&x201C;I have already arranged to meet up with my brother later in the afternoon. I want him to clarify some matters with me because I want to resolve this matter before I leave to join the
