Chapter 162: What to do Now? You Have Seen Right Through Me
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
&x201C;Thank you, producer,&x201D; Vera replied indifferently as she took the lunch boxes from the producer and brought Jiang Yuning back to her bed and breakfast.
&x201C;You should take a bath and have a good rest tonight,&x201D; Vera replied as she placed the things down in Jiang Yuning&x2019;s bedroom. &x201C;I did not expect the production crew to actually believe that Qian Ge is really merely a puppet controlled by her agent. So, does that mean that whatever her agent does has absolutely nothing to do with her?&x201D;
&x201C;Everyone working in the entertainment industry knows what is really going on. However, they are not so foolish as to offend the second female lead just because of me,&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied as she lay down on the sofa. &x201C;All we can do now is to just wait patiently for the perfect opportunity.&x201D;
However, thanks to the intense gossiping by the production crew, Qian Ge&x2019;s arrogance seemed to have been magnified abundantly. The production crew only felt extreme pity for Jiang Yuning as she could only quietly endure it on her own when Qian Ge&x2019;s agent bullied her. Therefore, most of the production crew started sympathizing and siding with Jiang Yuning.
&x201C;I will leave the city early in the morning tomorrow. I will ask the young paparazzo to come over here to help you out,&x201D; Vera informed Jiang Yuning.
&x201C;Alright then. You had better hurry up and go rest now. I am going to call second brother!&x201D; Jiang Yuning quickly pushed Vera out of her bedroom after they were done with dinner.
Vera could only glare at her.
This person was really prioritizing her lover over anything else!
&x201C;I will look for the coordinator to get your shooting arrangement and schedule for tomorrow.&x201D;
Jiang Yuning ignored her completely as she put on Lu Jingzhi&x2019;s shirt and quickly made a phone call to Lu Jingzhi. &x201C;Second brother&x2026;&x201D;
&x201C;Hey.&x201D; Lu Jingzhi&x2019;s voice could be heard over the phone.
&x201C;Did you just get off work now? Are you on your way home?&x201D; Jiang Yuning asked immediately because she could hear the driving navigation system in the background.
&x201C;Yeah,&x201D; Lu Jingzhi replied faintly before asking, &x201C;Were you bullied today?&x201D;
&x201C;Who told you about it? Did Vera tell you?&x201D; Jiang Yuning asked as she smiled. Jiang Yuning was about to tell Lu Jingzhi everything that had happened today but at this time, she suddenly heard Lu Jingzhi&x2019;s voice calling out to her.
&x201C;Open the door for me. Come out now&x2026;&x201D;
&x201C;Huh?&x201D; Jiang Yuning froze for a moment before she looked at the door that was not too far away from her. &x201C;If I did hear you correctly, you&x2026;you asked me to open the door for you? Didn&x2019;t you say that you were on your way home?&x201D;
&x201C;Isn&x2019;t home wherever you are?&x201D; Lu Jingzhi answered immediately.
After listening to Lu Jingzhi&x2019;s words, Jiang Yuning put down her cell phone immediately and ran straight to the bedroom door to unlock it without even putting on her shoes.
She could see Lu Jingzhi&x2019;s black car turning into the parking lot downstairs.
Jiang Yuning quickly ran downstairs barefooted and she jumped onto Lu Jingzhi even before he could stand up straight. &x201C;Second brother, why are you here?&x201D;
When Lu Jingzhi saw that Jiang Yuning only had his shirt on, he quickly turned around and instructed the two men sitting in the car, &x201C;Close your eyes and wait here tonight.&x201D;
Both Secretary Ho and the driver immediately closed their eyes and turned their heads around quickly.
&x201C;Hahaha&x2026;you are so overly protective.&x201D; In fact, Jiang Yuning was wearing shorts beneath the shirt.
Lu Jingzhi noticed that she was barefooted and he quickly carried her up in his arms before bringing her up to her bedroom. &x201C;Why didn&x2019;t you wear your shoes?&x201D;
&x201C;I was so excited to see you&x2026;this is only the first day and you are already here to see me!&x201D;
This was the first day that Jiang Yuning had joined the cast but there were already numerous rumors that his wife was being bullied. He had heard that her makeup artists were robbed from her and that her lunch box was also intentionally overturned.
He already felt distressed after hearing all this information from Secretary Ho. How could he not make a trip here to check on his wife?
&x201C;Did I scare you?&x201D; Jiang Yuning asked as she hung tightly onto Lu Jingzhi. &x201C;Let me explain what happened to you.&x201D;
&x201C;You do not need to explain anything to me now. Just let me take a look at you first.&x201D; After speaking, Lu Jingzhi brought Jiang Yuning into her bedroom before he placed her on her bed and started looking at her carefully. &x201C;I think that you have already forgotten that you have someone backing you up.&x201D;
After listening, Jiang Yuning whispered in his ear, &x201C;I know how solid my backer is.&x201D;
Lu Jingzhi stared deeply into Jiang Yuning&x2019;s eyes as soon as she was done speaking. &x201C;Is this a provocation?&x201D;
&x201C;Second brother, I really did not expect that you will come here immediately to see me. I have already guessed that you had personally arranged for me to stay at this bed and breakfast, but I would never have expected that you would fly here to see me because you heard some rumors that I was being bullied. Are you really so worried about me?&x201D;
Lu Jingzhi put his hands around Jiang Yuning&x2019;s waist as he hugged her tightly in his arms. He looked extremely exhausted. Even though he had set off from Luo City as soon as he got off work, it was already almost ten o&x2019;clock when he arrived at the bed and breakfast. Furthermore, he had to leave by five o&x2019;clock in the morning to make it back in time for work.
Jiang Yuning could tell that he was extremely exhausted and she immediately felt distressed. &x201C;Silly boy. Next time when you hear any rumors about anything that is going on here, give me call and ask me how I am doing first. Don&x2019;t come over here just because you are worried about me because I know that you are extremely tired. Didn&x2019;t I already promise you that I will not get bullied? However, I am really happy that you have come to see me. You look even more handsome today.&x201D;
&x201C;Rationally, I know that I should trust that you are strong enough to handle this. However, my heart refuses to listen. Let us wash up now so we can go to bed earlier,&x201D; Lu Jingzhi replied as he brought Jiang Yuning to the bathroom.
&x201C;I understand. Silly boy,&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied as she smiled.
It was obvious that Lu Jingzhi was really exhausted because after they had washed up and gotten onto the big king-sized bed, all that Jiang Yuning could hear was Lu Jingzhi&x2019;s even breathing sound within a few minutes.
In the middle of the night, Jiang Yuning received a text message from Vera to inform her about her schedule tomorrow. &x201C;Your first scene will be filmed at seven o&x2019;clock tomorrow night.&x201D;
Jiang Yuning quickly adjust the brightness of her cell phone to the dimmest setting before she replied Vera. &x201C;Okay, I got it.&x201D;
After that, Vera did not bother Jiang Yuning anymore and Jiang Yuning subsequently turned off her cell phone.
When she turned around to check on Lu Jingzhi, she could see that he was still fast asleep.
Lu Jingzhi had very good sleeping habits. He did not snore, he did not grind his teeth, and even when he was sleeping, he still had the most perfect posture.
However, Jiang Yuning&x2019;s heart hurt when she saw how tired Lu Jingzhi looked.
It was all because he was worried and afraid that she would get bullied.
The second young master of the Lu family had a mild case of obsessive-compulsive disorder and he would never wear his clothes for a second time. However, it seemed as though he had once again compromised and made some sacrifices just because of her.
As she thought about this, Jiang Yuning quickly got up from bed.
First, she made sure that the mosquito net was covering the bed properly because she was worried that second brother would get bitten by mosquitoes. After that, she ironed second brother&x2019;s suit jacket and trousers again before she hung it out on the balcony.
She then washed Lu Jingzhi&x2019;s boxers and socks before drying them with a hair dryer.
When Lu Jingzhi woke up the next morning, he saw the stack of clothes that she had prepared for him placed neatly on the chair beside him.
Jiang Yuning also left a note on top of the shirt. &x201C;Second brother, do not wake me up when you get up. I have just fallen asleep. I have already washed your boxers and socks for you and the shirt that I have put out for you is a clean one that I had brought from home. I know that you do not want me to get bullied, but in the same manner, I do not want you to be so exhausted because of me. There are many other ways through which you can protect me. You do not have to rush over every time you get worried about me. I believe that the real reason why you have come over is clearly because you want to see me, as you miss me already. I did not want to expose you face to face.&x201D;
After reading the note, Lu Jingzhi put on his clothes before he turned around to look at Jiang Yuning who was still sleeping soundly at this time.
When Lu Jingzhi saw Jiang Yuning&x2019;s feet dangling off the side of the bed, he walked over and sat down by the edge of the bed as he kissed Jiang Yuning gently on her lips before he got up reluctantly and whispered, &x201C;What to do now? You have seen right through me&x2026;&x201D;
Very soon, Lu Jingzhi disappeared into the dawn.
No one would believe that someone as high profile as Lu Jingzhi had actually stepped into the Shuofeng Film City.
Early the next morning, the production crew had already started setting up for the filming of the next scene at seven o&x2019;clock in the morning. At this time, Director Shen Guobang was already seated and waiting for the filming to begin. Suddenly, Jiang Yuning, who only had a filming scene later in the evening, arrived at the filming location earlier than any of the other actors or actresses with a plastic stool in her hand. She walked over to Director Shen Guobang before she placed the stool down and sat right beside him.
&x201C;What do you want?&x201D; Director Shen Guobang asked her immediately.
