Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
&x201C;I will show you the price that you have to pay for becoming a traitor.&x201D;
Yin Qingyu sneered as Vera left, but Vera ignored her completely.
After leaving the hotel, Vera then went to Grandpa Tan&x2019;s house to accompany Jiang Yuning as Grandpa Tan was going to give Jiang Yuning an examination on everything that she had learnt from him.
After all, Jiang Yuning had already been studying and taking lessons from Grandpa Tan for quite some time. The old man wanted to see that she was actually learning from him, instead of him just wasting his time in teaching her.
Although he knew that Jiang Yuning was only learning Chinese medicine and herbs from him because of the upcoming drama, he would not tolerate Jiang Yuning misleading the audience with any wrong information.
After marking Jiang Yuning&x2019;s test paper, the old man nodded as he smiled. &x201C;You really are a very intelligent girl. You are much smarter than most of my students. I can see that you have really mastered the basics very well.&x201D;
&x201C;I know that I have only learned the basics but you can be rest assured, Grandpa Tan. If there is anything that I do not understand, I would definitely ask you for help. I will not mislead the audience with any wrong information.&x201D; Jiang Yuning quickly assured the old man.
&x201C;That is very assuring.&x201D;
After ensuring that the old man was satisfied, Jiang Yuning turned around and looked at Vera before she said, &x201C;Let&x2019;s go out to the front yard to talk.&x201D;
Vera nodded her head slightly.
&x201C;I could see that your eyes were swollen and red when you arrived at Grandpa Tan&x2019;s house earlier today. Did you think that I would not have noticed that?&x201D; Jiang Yuning asked Vera after they walked out to the front yard.
Vera rubbed her nose slightly as she looked at Jiang Yuning. To be honest, she had already met and come face to face with so many different people in her line of work, but Jiang Yuning was the only one who had taught her how to be sincere and genuine towards the people around her. Although Jiang Yuning looked as though she did not understand anything, she really did put in a lot of effort to take care of the people around her.
&x201C;Are you still not ready to tell me about what is going on between you and Yin Qingyu? Tell me what happened. Maybe I can help you then.&x201D;
Vera was silent for a moment before she finally conceded.
&x201C;When I was still studying in the university, I was selling liquor and beer in a nightclub because my family was really short of money at that time and I needed to work part-time to help my parents. Although I did not work as a public escort, we dressed very revealingly abroad. One night, my colleagues and I were walking past the night street as usual when we bumped into a very drunk man on the street. The drunk man had bad intentions and he caught hold of me before dragging me to the back alley. I kept struggling to set myself free and that was when he started beating me. In the end, Yin Qingyu passed by and she saw me struggling. She was the one who had called the police on my behalf.&x201D;
&x201C;That is why you have been grateful to her all this while? Just because you think that she was your benefactor?&x201D; Jiang Yuning asked after listening to Vera&x2019;s story. She had a very strange expression on her face. After a short while she suddenly asked Vera, &x201C;Vera, have you ever really thought about the person who had really made the phone call to the police? How can you be so sure that Yin Qingyu was in fact the one who had made the phone call that saved your life? Have you asked your colleagues about this matter before?&x201D;
Vera did not understand what Jiang Yuning was trying to imply. However, she thought really hard about what happened that night before she finally answered Jiang Yuning. &x201C;After the police officers arrived, the first person that I saw was Yin Qingyu. As for my colleagues, I stopped contacting them after that incident because I was so mad at them for abandoning me.&x201D;
&x201C;Then, what has Yin Qingyu been threatening you with?&x201D;
&x201C;She has always thought that I was working as a public escort.&x201D;
&x201C;That is exactly why I think that Yin Qingyu was definitely not the one who had called the police and saved your life. There are two main reasons for my assumption. Firstly, if Yin Qingyu had really thought that you were a public escort, she would have just stopped and watched as a bystander when the man was doing unspeakable things to you in the back alley. After all, that would have been part of your job. She could have avoided you immediately or just stopped there to watch the show that was going on. Secondly, do you really think that someone like Yin Qingyu would actually try to save someone else?&x201D;
&x201C;The mere fact that she was the first person to appear in front of you does not necessarily mean that she was worried about you. She could have been there because she had wanted to watch the show and see what was going on. I think that you should try contacting your former colleagues to try getting the real story from them.&x201D;
Vera suddenly felt weak after listening to Jiang Yuning&x2019;s analysis of everything that happened that fateful day. Her mind turned blank all of a sudden. This was because Vera always believed that Yin Qingyu was her benefactor because she was the first person to appear in front of her and because the police officer had told her that it was Yin Qingyu who had made the phone call to them.
However, why would the police officer assume that Yin Qingyu was the one who made the phone call? This was only because she was the first person to appear in front of Vera.
Jiang Yuning had mentioned one very important point that Vera thought made perfectly good sense. Would such a selfish person such as Yin Qingyu actually take the trouble to try and save someone else?
&x201C;You should determine the truth from the facts and by looking through the evidence. After discovering the truth, there is no need to be sad or angry about anything that is not important to you. After all, you have so many other things that you have to do and be busy with,&x201D; Jiang Yuning said as she patted Vera lightly on her shoulder to comfort her. &x201C;I will upload a short ancient video on my social media account tomorrow. After that, I will be going to the Civil Affairs Bureau to register my marriage with second brother. You would have to do a good job keeping that a secret for me. Moreover, you would also have to start planning the next steps for me after I join the
&x201C;You are going to get married? What about your employment contract&x2026;&x201D;
Jiang Yuning rolled her eyes before answering Vera. &x201C;It is Chairman Gu who has ordered me to get married as soon as possible. So, you do not have to worry about me breaching any terms of my contract because this clause does not exist in my employment contract. Anyway, haven&x2019;t you always been curious about how I am related to Chairman Gu? Well, he is Lu Jingzhi&x2019;s biological uncle but it is not known publicly&x2026;&x201D;
After listening to Jiang Yuning&x2019;s explanation, Vera could finally figure out the relationship between these few people.
So, this was how they were connected to one another.
&x201C;Since you are all family, then&x2026;why aren&x2019;t you more ambitious?&x201D;
&x201C;I am not struggling to make ends meet now. I have enough food, clothing, and a shelter over my head so why can&x2019;t I have my own goals in life? Do you really see me as just a blacklisted artiste with a bad reputation, with no acting skills?&x201D; Jiang Yuning asked. &x201C;Do I not have an identity without second brother&x2019;s help?&x201D;
&x201C;That is not what I meant,&x201D; Vera explained immediately.
&x201C;Alright then. I want to be more down to earth since I am still young and capable of doing many more things. There are so much more mountains that I want to conquer based on my own ability. If I merely rely on my relationships to get me everything that I want in life, where is the satisfaction in that? If you want to, you can accompany me as I fight and work hard for everything that I want. However, if you are unwilling to do so, I will not force you because I would never want to make things difficult for my friend.&x201D;
Vera smiled as soon as she heard Jiang Yuning referring to her as a friend.
She used to believe that Yin Qingyu and her were best friends.
She had learnt her lesson the hard way.
She should have been more sceptical when someone said that they were her friend now but because this person was Jiang Yuning, she knew that she really meant it and that she could trust her.
&x201C;I am really happy that you are getting married tomorrow and I wish you all the best. However, I have to go and deal with Yin Qingyu because I am afraid that she would cause more trouble and implicate you in the process.&x201D;
&x201C;If she dares to do anything to delay my marriage, then I will torture her until she regrets living,&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied as she laughed. &x201C;As for whatever she intends to do, you do not need to worry too much about it as long as you do not have a guilty conscience. What is false will always be false. It would never become the truth.&x201D;
Vera could finally heave a huge sigh of relief.
She would just pretend that she had wasted so many years feeding a dog that bit back.
Later in the evening, Vera headed back to her house after dropping Jiang Yuning off at the Royal Dragon Villa. After taking a shower, she took out her sim card and replaced it with her previous SIM card before she rummaged through her address book.
She was relieved when she discovered that she still had a few of her classmates&x2019; phone number saved in the contacts list. Although she was embarrassed, she was courageous enough to ask her classmates to help her contact her ex-colleagues.
About an hour later, Vera finally received a phone call from her ex-classmates&x2026;
