Lu Jingzhi rubbed his eyes as he knitted his brows. What he was really concerned about was the fact that his wife was getting reprimanded and insulted on the internet once again.
However, he chose to reply Xu Beishen&x2019;s text message first with a few simple words. &x201C;I am already married.&x201D;
He also sent her a picture of him and Jiang Yuning holding hands.
Xu Beishen replied his text message almost immediately as she was extremely shocked. &x201C;Are you really married?&x201D;
Lu Jingzhi did not reply to her text message. Instead, he quickly took the opportunity to give Xu Liangzhou a call. He told Xu Liangzhou about what had happened and then asked him to take care of Xu Beishen so that she would not push him to his limit.
When Xu Liangzhou heard about what had happened, he was so shocked that he broke out in cold sweat. He would never have expected his sister to be so bold to steal Lu Jingzhi&x2019;s cell phone number from his own cell phone!
It seemed as though he had to give his sister a stern warning to stop misbehaving.
At about ten o&x2019;clock at night, the heavy rain turned into a light drizzle in Luo City.
Jiang Yuning placed the script that she was holding in her hand down before she looked at the time. Lu Jingzhi would usually already be there at this time, but why was there no movement from him at all today?
Was he angry because he heard about the scandal involving Song Chenxing and herself?
As soon as she thought about it, Jiang Yuning immediately took out her cell phone and called Lu Jingzhi.
The call was connected very quickly but the man on the other side of the line sounded extremely exhausted. &x201C;Ningning?&x201D;
&x201C;Second brother, are you going home to sleep tonight?&x201D;
&x201C;I am already on my way to you,&x201D; Lu Jingzhi replied. &x201C;The meeting got delayed&x2026;&x201D;
&x201C;Then why are you still coming over here? You should go home and rest today. You are starting to lose your voice, second brother. What are we going to do if you fall sick? Do you really think that you are a robot who will never get tired?&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied anxiously. &x201C;Second brother, be obedient. Go home and have a good rest tonight.&x201D;
&x201C;I am already halfway there. I cannot turn around and go back now,&x201D; Lu Jingzhi replied before he smirked. &x201C;So, how does it feel to be involved in a scandal with the prince of the entertainment industry?&x201D;
&x201C;Who wants to be in a scandal with the prince of the entertainment industry? My husband is so much more perfect!&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied as a matter of fact. &x201C;It is just my husband&x2019;s disobedience that is making me feel very distressed.&x201D;
&x201C;What about your foot? Is it still hurting?&x201D;
&x201C;Eh? How did you know about that? Are you clairvoyant?&x201D; Jiang Yuning was very surprised because she had already explicitly instructed the young paparazzo not to tell Lu Jingzhi about her injury. However, she did not expect that he would be able to find out about it anyway. &x201C;Let me explain everything that has happened to you.&x201D;
It took Jiang Yuning quite a while to explain everything that had happened that day to Lu Jingzhi.
After listening to Jiang Yuning&x2019;s explanation, Lu Jingzhi said, &x201C;Okay then, go to bed first. I will take care of this matter for you.&x201D;
&x201C;No, it is okay. I will explain things to Brother Chen tomorrow. I will also wait for you to arrive because I will not be able to sleep if I know you are not safe and sound.&x201D;
Lu Jingzhi finally felt less exhausted because of Jiang Yuning&x2019;s coquettish tone. He lowered his head before he said, &x201C;Okay then. Rest in bed and wait for me to come.&x201D;
Secretary Ho could finally relax when he saw the smile on Lu Jingzhi&x2019;s face. Indeed, Miss Jiang was the only one who could put a smile on the principal&x2019;s face.
&x201C;I will be taking the day off tomorrow. Please postpone and reschedule all meetings and any other arrangements that we have made for tomorrow to the day after,&x201D; Lu Jingzhi instructed Secretary Ho before put his cell phone away before he closed his eyes and rested.
&x201C;Also, do a background check on Song Chenxing.&x201D;
&x201C;Principal, you intend to&x2026;&x201D;
&x201C;I want him to stop bothering my woman.&x201D;
It was already close to midnight when Lu Jingzhi finally arrived at the bed and breakfast.
Jiang Yuning had already prepared a hot bath for her husband and had even prepared some essential oils because she wanted to help him relax.
However, Lu Jingzhi did not rush to take a bath as soon as he arrived at the bed and breakfast. Instead, he sat down on the sofa and placed Jiang Yuning&x2019;s right foot on his lap so that he could have a look at it.
Jiang Yuning could only feel warmth and affection when Lu Jingzhi placed his hand on her foot.
&x201C;Second brother, I am really fine. It will not hurt anymore when I get up tomorrow.&x201D;
&x201C;Alright then. You can go and sleep first. I will come to bed after I take a quick shower,&x201D; Lu Jingzhi replied as he started taking off his coat.
Jiang Yuning turned around to look at all the things that she had prepared in advance.
Lu Jingzhi glanced at the direction that she was looking at and squeezed her face gently. &x201C;You can barely keep your eyes open now and you are still worried about me?&x201D;
&x201C;I feel bad for you,&x201D; Jiang Yuning said as she held onto Lu Jingzhi&x2019;s hand. &x201C;Though it is already so late at night, you have still taken the long drive to come here to see me.&x201D;
&x201C;No matter how tired I am, I have to see you before I sleep. I am already used to it.&x201D; After speaking, Lu Jingzhi pulled Jiang Yuning closer to him before he kissed her on the lips. &x201C;I feel much better already.&x201D;
Jiang Yuning could not help but smile immediately.
Although Lu Jingzhi refused to admit it, Jiang Yuning knew that he must be feeling jealous.
He was just like her. Although she knew that Xu Beishen&x2019;s feelings and affection for Lu Jingzhi was one-sided and unrequited, she still did not like the idea of Lu Jingzhi being put together with Xu Beishen. This was not because they did not trust in one another. This was because humans were all born with possessiveness as one of their dominant traits.
Therefore, when Lu Jingzhi climbed into bed after showering, Jiang Yuning quickly rolled over to his side and hugged him tightly. &x201C;Second brother&x2026;&x201D;
&x201C;I have already told Xu Beishen that I am married.&x201D; Lu Jingzhi said all of a sudden.
&x201C;Huh?&x201D; Jiang Yuning was stunned for a moment. &x201C;Then, Xu Beishen must be feeling really heartbroken right now. Second brother, you really know how to make me feel at ease.&x201D;
&x201C;Do you just feel at ease?&x201D; Lu Jingzhi asked as he hugged her in his arms.
&x201C;It is already so late&x2026;&x201D;
&x201C;Oh? Really?&x201D; Lu Jingzhi asked, raising his voice a little.
Jiang Yuning looked at Lu Jingzhi and she was defeated immediately. Who could resist a man with such charming and irresistible features as him?
Jiang Yuning woke up early the next morning and when she turned around, she saw that Lu Jingzhi was still sleeping soundly in bed. She kissed him on his cheek gently before she got out of bed.
Second brother, you have already done your duty as my husband. Now, it is my turn to make you feel at ease.
She did not want him to feel insecure.
This was because he was the most important person in her life.
Jiang Yuning did not have to film any scenes with Song Chenxing today. However, after she was done filming her part for group B, she headed over to watch the performance by group A.
When the production crew saw her jumping around excitedly, they immediately knew that her foot was already getting better.
After Yao Fan and Song Chenxing were done filming their scenes for the day, Jiang Yuning quickly walked over towards them. &x201C;Sister Fan, Brother Chen, come. Let me buy both of you a meal.&x201D;
&x201C;Alright. Let&x2019;s go now! I am hungry,&x201D; Yao Fan replied, accepting Jiang Yuning&x2019;s invitation immediately. Yao Fan understood Jiang Yuning&x2019;s intention right away.
Song Chenxing also followed after the two of them as they headed back to the hotel and took their seats in one of the elegant rooms.
At this time, Jiang Yuning deliberately placed her cell phone in front of Yao Fan.
&x201C;Oh! Your screensaver. Is that a picture of your boyfriend?&x201D;
Yao Fan asked Jiang Yuning as she pointed at the cell phone that was placed on the table.
&x201C;Oh. This is my husband. We are already married. He looks really handsome, doesn&x2019;t he?&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied as she smiled. &x201C;I am crazily in love with him.&x201D;
&x201C;Hahaha. Look at how silly you look right now,&x201D; Yao Fan replied as she stared at Jiang Yuning. &x201C;Does he know about the scandal involving you and Chenxing?&x201D;
&x201C;He knows but he does not care about it. However, I care about it. So, Brother Chen, this is the reason why I have been afraid to get close to you. Your fans are all really scary,&x201D; Jiang Yuning said to Song Chenxing in a half-truthful manner. &x201C;I have had a crush on him for twelve years before I finally got the opportunity to be together with him. Therefore, you cannot blame me for trying to keep my distance from you, Brother Chen. I am already very afraid of getting blacklisted and constantly being a target.&x201D;
&x201C;Brother Chen had always been this way since the first day I met him. He is always playing it cool. Just ignore him,&x201D; Yao Fan replied as she patted Jiang Yuning on her shoulder to comfort her.
&x201C;I understand,&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied.
&x201C;However, I did not expect you to get married at such a young age.&x201D;
