Chapter 159 You are Sweet
&x201C;Second brother, they only did that out of concern for you,&x201D; Jiang Yuning quickly defended them as she held onto Lu Jingzhi&x2019;s arm. &x201C;They are all good people, just like you.&x201D;
&x201C;I know that. Otherwise, they would not be standing here right now.&x201D; After speaking, Lu Jingzhi left the hotel room together with Jiang Yuning. At this time, Xu Liangzhou and Wen Luo finally heaved a sigh of relief and smiled as they watched Lu Jingzhi and Jiang Yuning walking away from them.
&x201C;This sister-in-law&x2026;we will support her!&x201D;
&x201C;Hm.&x201D; Lu Jingzhi snorted but he did not stop walking
Xu Liangzhou felt a little upset when Lu Jingzhi was finally out of their sight. &x201C;Why does it feel as though we have just lost one of our comrades?&x201D;
&x201C;But don&x2019;t you think that sister-in-law is a really interesting person? She is not only beautiful with bright and sparkling eyes but she has also proven that she is very intelligent indeed. Jingzhi had never once thrown a tantrum or gotten mad at us previously but he was so angry and annoyed just now. This shows how important sister-in-law is to him.&x201D;
&x201C;I know that Jingzhi has never felt anything for my sister before but recently, my sister has been asking around for more information and details about Jingzhi&x2019;s personal life. I am just worried that my sister will create trouble when she finds out about Jingzhi and sister-in-law,&x201D; Xu Liangzhou said as he sighed. &x201C;Forget it. We will deal with the problem when it arises.&x201D;
On the way back to the villa, Jiang Yuning told Lu Jingzhi about what had happened during dinner earlier that night. As she was feeling a little uncomfortable because she drank some wine, Jiang Yuning was lying down as she rested her head on Lu Jingzhi&x2019;s lap. She sighed as she said, &x201C;Second brother, sometimes I really envy you because you have such close friends who really treat you like their own brother.&x201D;
&x201C;Do you not mind that they tried to make things difficult for you?&x201D;
&x201C;Why would I mind anything? They were being really nice and polite to me, especially Xu Liangzhou, as he was afraid that I would be angry that they doubted me in the first place. That was why he kept giving me all the cards that I needed to win. If you think about it, I was the one who was bullying them,&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied as she laughed but after a few seconds, she was sad once again. &x201C;I have no friends&x2026;and I do not dare to make friends or get close to anyone.&x201D;
&x201C;But you have friends now, right?&x201D;
&x201C;Well&x2026;if you count the young paparazzo, Director Shen, and Vera as my friends.&x201D;
Lu Jingzhi patted her head gently and ran his fingers through her hair before he sat her up and hugged her in his arms. &x201C;Are you still feeling unwell now?&x201D;
Jiang Yuning was lying in Lu Jingzhi&x2019;s arms, smelling strongly of wine. She looked up at Lu Jingzhi and shook her head. &x201C;I feel better because you are with me.&x201D;
Lu Jingzhi could not help but to lean in and kiss her gently on her lips. &x201C;Sweet.&x201D;
&x201C;What is sweet?&x201D;
&x201C;You are sweet.&x201D;
Jiang Yuning blushed immediately as she hid her face in Lu Jingzhi&x2019;s chest. She did not want to move because she was feeling so much warmth and love at the moment.
A short while later, they arrived at the villa and surprisingly, Sister Liang had already prepared supper for them.
Jiang Yuning looked at Lu Jingzhi with a perplexed expression on her face. Lu Jingzhi immediately explained, &x201C;After the meeting, I rushed over to the hotel directly after I read Xu Liangzhou&x2019;s text message.&x201D;
&x201C;Were you afraid that I would get bullied?&x201D; Jiang Yuning asked as she hugged Lu Jingzhi tightly. &x201C;Second brother, I am already contented because I get to be together with you. You do not have to worry too much about me and protect me all the time because I can fight for myself too. However, there is something that I still need to ask you. Did you know that Xu Beishen is Xu Liangzhou&x2019;s sister?&x201D;
&x201C;Yes.&x201D; Lu Jingzhi replied faintly as he sat down at the dining table.
&x201C;Have you ever met up with her after your graduation ceremony?&x201D;
Lu Jingzhi shook his head before he poured out a bowl of soup and placed it in front of Jiang Yuning. &x201C;Drink this.&x201D;
&x201C;I do not like her at all,&x201D; Jiang Yuning said in a sad voice as she thought about how emotional and depressed she had been in the past because of her.
&x201C;To be honest, I cannot even remember what she looks like,&x201D; Lu Jingzhi replied. &x201C;For me, there are only two types of people in this world -men and you.&x201D;
&x201C;You are the best.&x201D; Jiang Yuning was finally relieved and she sat down at the dining table right next to Lu Jingzhi. &x201C;Have your dinner. I will sit here and accompany you.&x201D;
She could only enjoy this kind of beautiful moments with Lu Jingzhi for a few more days.
Later that night, Yin Qingyu was drinking red wine in her hotel room as she stared at the laptop in her hand.
It was as though she was already celebrating the news that was about to be released in a short while. Although X Society was not willing to publish the gossip and news about Vera, they had also introduced another media outlet who was willing to publish the news on her behalf.
Yin Qingyu raised her hand to look at the time on her watch. It was almost nine o&x2019;clock at night. She would really like to see how Guangying Media would try to intercept or block the news concerning Vera, now that the news would be published by another media station.
At around nine fifteen at night, an article and video titled
The employees of X Society had been waiting for this moment and as soon as the video was uploaded online, they quickly downloaded the video before they performed a comprehensive and deep analysis on the video.
The netizens were also busy camping in front of their computers as they gave their comments about the video.
(This video looks really old. It must have been taken quite a few years ago. The video quality is more distracting than the actual content of the video.]
(I have seen an interview on this agent before. In the interview, she mentioned an unfortunate incident where she was almost humiliated a few years ago when she was working part-time.]
[If the news is about the agent, then just focus on the agent. Why do you have to talk about Jiang Yuning? Is it also Jiang Yuning&x2019;s fault that her agent encountered a bad situation a few years ago?]
[I saw the interview too! This agent named Vera was kind enough to remind all women to be more alert and to pay more attention to their safety no matter where they are. She also mentioned that she had recognized and thanked the wrong benefactor for many years. I think that she is a very nice person.]
Yin Qingyu was surprised that there were so many positive comments after the release of the video. Therefore, she started writing negative comments to influence the netizens into commenting negatively about Vera.
[I don&x2019;t believe that anyone working in the entertainment industry would be nice. I think that she is probably as cheap and manipulative as Jiang Yuning.)
(Why would she reveal that she was almost raped in the past? Doesn&x2019;t she feel ashamed at all?]
(Hahaha. I wonder how many people she has slept with before she could become an agent.)
This time, Guangying Media did not take any action at all because they had already done all that they needed to do for the early stage of their plan. The success of the plan would now depend on how X Society used its power and influence to handle this matter.
Jiang Yuning and Vera were both in their own respective homes then and they were reading the comments posted by the netizens. It was only natural for them to feel nervous right now.
The battle lasted for about one hour and only stopped when X Society suddenly released an article about Vera&x2019;s video.
X Society&x2019;s article and analysis of the video was much more professional compared to the video that was previously published by the other media station.
First of all, X Society had provided countless screenshots and they had also edited the video in slow-motion so that they could provide a full and detailed analysis on the video. They managed to prove that the location at which the video was recorded was in fact a well-known beer street abroad. With the powerful magnification effect, they zoomed in to Vera&x2019;s clothing to show that she was in fact working part-time at that time, as she was wearing a uniform bearing the logo of a well-known beer brand abroad. Furthermore, when they zoomed in to Vera&x2019;s facial expression at that time, it was obvious that she was struggling and there were also obvious signs of bleeding at the corner of her eyes and mouth.
This was in line with what Vera had shared about her unfortunate experience during her interview.
Secondly, X Society also released a screenshot of the news where Vera mentioned that she had recognized and thanked the wrong benefactor for the past few years.
The main point that they focused on was the fact that for all these years, Vera had mistakenly thought that the first person to appear in front of her was indeed the person who had called the police on her behalf and saved her life. However, it was finally confirmed recently that the ones who had actually made the phone call to the police were in fact her ex-colleagues. So, could the person who had filmed this video of Vera&x2019;s incident be the person who first appeared before Vera? Was this person the fake benefactor then?
At the end of their article, X Society unceremoniously released a photograph of Yin Qingyu, accompanied by the caption, &x201C;Hello, fake benefactor.&x201D;
(Oh my god! I am really amazed at X Society&x2019;s detailed and analytical inspection of the video. It&x2019;s no wonder why they are at the top of the entertainment news. The other media outlets should learn from them!]
[X Society is really incredible. That woman is really very disgusting and inhumane! How could she just stand by and record a video when someone else is about to get raped?]
[One look at her face and you can already tell that she is not a good person!)
