Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
&x201C;I do not want to listen to your brother&x2019;s one-sided explanation.&x201D;
&x201C;Vera, don&x2019;t you think that whatever that you have heard from your friend was also just a one-sided story?&x201D; Jiang Yuning asked over the phone.
Vera was silent for a short while before she finally agreed. However, she needed to figure something out before she went over to the villa. &x201C;Will Mr. Lu be at home too?&x201D;
Jiang Yuning could not help but laugh after listening to Vera&x2019;s question. &x201C;Are you really that afraid of him? Do not worry, you can be rest assured that he is at work right now.&x201D;
Vera was relieved.
No one could blame her for being afraid. After all, although Lu Jingzhi was a very handsome man, he was really very cold and scary when he glared at someone. Who would not fear him?
Later in the afternoon, Jiang Yuning had just finished going through her script when Ku Jie arrived at the villa dressed in a vest, a pair of shorts, and a pair of slippers. As soon as he entered the living room, he laid down on the sofa immediately.
&x201C;Did you go swimming?&x201D;
&x201C;Speak up. What is the matter?&x201D; Ku Jie asked. He was so sleepy that he could not even open his eyes fully. &x201C;If you have something that you need to investigate, you can just give the young paparazzo a call.&x201D;
&x201C;The reason I have called you here today is to discuss your personal matters. For the past five years, I have never asked you any questions about your personal life, but right now, I really want to know if you ever had anyone in your heart,&x201D; Jiang Yuning asked as she stared at Ku Jie.
Ku Jie looked at Jiang Yuning with a serious expression on his face before replying, &x201C;Little girl, why do you want to know so much? Isn&x2019;t Lu Jingzhi enough for you? Do you want me too?&x201D;
&x201C;Just tell me the truth, brother. Or do you want me to investigate this matter on my own?&x201D;
Since Jiang Yuning had already made things so clear, Ku Jie knew that his sister was not kidding and that she was serious when she asked him the question.
&x201C;Before I tell you anything, why don&x2019;t you tell me why you are suddenly interested in my personal affairs?&x201D;
&x201C;Before I tell you why I am asking you this question, why don&x2019;t you tell me your true feelings first?&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied once again.
Ku Jie looked at Jiang Yuning and he thought for a moment before he finally sat up.
&x201C;I had a girlfriend when I was studying at Auburn University.&x201D;
&x201C;Why did you break up with her? Is it because the Jiang family went bankrupt?&x201D; Jiang Yuning took the opportunity and immediately asked to get an answer out of her brother.
Ku Jie shook his head, implying that the answer was no. &x201C;No. We were already facing some problems in our relationship. In fact, we had already broken up three months before the Jiang family went bankrupt. Therefore, strictly speaking, this matter had nothing to do with you or the Jiang family.&x201D;
&x201C;Is that the truth?&x201D; Jiang Yuning asked as she looked at him suspiciously.
&x201C;It is up to you whether you choose to believe it or not,&x201D; Ku Jie replied indifferently.
&x201C;Can you elaborate further? What kind of relationship problems did you guys have at that time?&x201D;
Ku Jie was once again silent. After thinking about it for a short while, he finally replied, &x201C;I will satisfy your curiosity once and for all today, but you have to promise that you will not ask me about this matter again in future.&x201D;
&x201C;Okay,&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied as she nodded her head slightly.
&x201C;She cheated on me. At that time, I had a lot of assignments and I had to conduct many different experiments to complete the assignments. That was why I had spent most of my time at the laboratory and I did not have much time to accompany her. At that time, some of my friends had told me that they bumped into my girlfriend and they saw her behaving intimately with another Englishman. I did not think much about it until I caught her in bed with that Englishman one day. I broke up with her immediately because there was nothing left to say,&x201D; Ku Jie replied as he patted Jiang Yuning on her head. &x201C;That is why you should not ask your brother about such sad and emotional matters in the future, okay?&x201D;
Jiang Yuning nodded her head. &x201C;Have you gotten over it yet?&x201D;
Being cheated on was something that would place a huge scar on someone&x2019;s self-esteem and emotional state. It was not something that anyone could easily forget.
Therefore, for the past few years, Ku Jie had rarely gotten close to any other women.
&x201C;I admit that I really hated women after that, but I finally changed my mind about women because of you. I realized that not all women are the same. Therefore, I do believe in love now but there is no one that I am interested in at the moment.&x201D;
After he had finished speaking, Ku Jie laid back down on the sofa.
&x201C;Brother&x2026;well, actually&x2026;I plan to get married to second brother.&x201D;
&x201C;No, no, no. Lu Jingzhi, that pig. He has not even gotten my approval yet,&x201D; Ku Jie replied, slightly agitated after hearing what Jiang Yuning had just said.
&x201C;Yes, brother&x2026;I really want to marry him,&x201D; Jiang Yuning said once again.
Ku Jie stared at Jiang Yuning in utter disbelief before he finally replied, &x201C;I really do not know what to do with you.&x201D;
&x201C;Hehehe&x2026;&x201D; Jiang Yuning smirked. She had successfully diverted Ku Jie&x2019;s attention and he had forgotten to ask her about the reason she was asking him about his past relationship.
&x201C;Forget it. I am too lazy to be bothered with you. Do not come crying to me when he bullies you in future.&x201D;
&x201C;No, he will not,&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied as she held onto Ku Jie&x2019;s arm.
In fact, Ku Jie had already anticipated that this day would come eventually. However, he could not help but feel uneasy when he thought about the fact that his little sister would officially be tied down to that pig.
After Ku Jie left the villa, Vera finally walked out of the room that was located closest to the living room. As the door had been left open intentionally, she could clearly hear the entire conversation between Ku Jie and Jiang Yuning. However, she could not believe everything that Ku Jie said.
This was because Yin Qingyu had told her a completely different story.
When Jiang Yuning saw Vera standing by the door without any movement or reaction, she took the initiative to walk up to Vera and asked her, &x201C;Now, can you tell me the version of the story that you heard from your friend?&x201D;
Vera leaned against the door as she tried to process everything in her mind. She then replied, &x201C;My friend told me that she had a very good relationship with her boyfriend, but he suddenly disappeared without telling her one day. From that day onwards, she suffered severe depression and had even attempted to commit suicide a couple of times, but I was always there to stop her.&x201D;
&x201C;She also told me that she was pregnant with her boyfriend&x2019;s child, but suffered a miscarriage from being so stressed out after her boyfriend had left her without any notice at all.&x201D;
&x201C;The most important thing that she told me was that she discovered that her boyfriend had an inappropriate relationship with his sister. She told me that her boyfriend could abandon her and come back to China so easily when his sister&x2019;s family went bankrupt solely because of the inappropriate relationship that they had.&x201D;
Jiang Yuning could not help but laugh out loud as soon as she heard Vera&x2019;s explanation. &x201C;Your friend is really a very good storyteller. I do not think that she is suffering from depression, but she might just be paranoid and delusional. My brother might be very close to me but he had never made any inappropriate moves towards me. Vera, I do not expect you to believe everything that my brother has just said. However, I am afraid that you may have been exploited by your own friend. Anyway, I am about to join the cast of
Vera took a deep breath before she nodded her head. &x201C;Alright then, I will return to the company first.&x201D;
After that, Vera rushed out of the villa and quickly got into her car.
Both Jiang Muyang and Yin Qingyu had different versions of what had truly happened in the past.
At this time, Vera suddenly received an incoming phone call from Yin Qingyu. &x201C;Vera, I will be coming to China tomorrow.&x201D;
&x201C;Why the sudden trip&x2026;is there anything urgent?&x201D; Vera asked as she was completely caught off guard.
&x201C;That is because I am afraid that I will lose you as a friend soon if I continue letting you stay in Luo City by yourself.&x201D;
Vera was in a very confused state right now.
&x201C;Will you pick me up from the airport tomorrow?&x201D;
Vera did not know how she could face Yin Qingyu at this time.
Moreover, why did she suddenly decide to come to China?
If she had come to fight it out with Jiang Muyang, then that would be their own problem, since it was their relationship in the first place. However, what should she do if Yin Qingyu was coming because she wanted to hurt Jiang Yuning?
