&x201C;I said that I really love you so, so much,&x201D; Jiang Yuning repeated before she rested her head on Lu Jingzhi&x2019;s shoulder.
They had both been so busy for the past three months and it had been a long time since he had heard Jiang Yuning declaring her love for him.
He suddenly felt a strong urge and impulse when he heard her sudden confession.
&x201C;Since you love me so much, why aren&x2019;t you being more obedient then?&x201D; Lu Jingzhi asked as he controlled the urge to kiss her. He pinched her face gently before he smiled.
&x201C;Just because I know that you love me too. That is why I can act so recklessly. Second brother, I am so sleepy&x2026;&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied before she closed her eyes and fell asleep in Lu Jingzhi&x2019;s embrace. During the last phase of the shoot, her schedule was very packed and her workload too heavy. She had not had the chance to fall asleep in Lu Jingzhi&x2019;s arms for a long time and therefore, she did not want to miss this golden opportunity.
Lu Jingzhi hugged her tightly in his arms and after she had fallen into deep sleep, he brought her to their bedroom and placed her on the bed before he whispered in her ear, &x201C;Welcome home, my darling.&x201D;
Jiang Yuning had a beautiful dream that night. In her dream, she was holding a concert and the entire place was filled with more than ten thousand people. Lu Jingzhi was sitting at the main guest table and he was looking at her with a smile on his face.
It was such a wonderful dream. When Jiang Yuning woke up, she really wanted to write a song and sing it to Lu Jingzhi.
However, it was not the right time to do so.
At noon the next day, Vera arrived at the villa to pick Jiang Yuning up in order for them to get her publicity photo taken for the variety show.
Jiang Yuning suddenly thought of something when she saw the huge line-up of work that Vera had scheduled for her continuously. &x201C;Aren&x2019;t you only acting as my exclusive agent for three months? Three months is already up. Isn&x2019;t it already time for you to go back home?&x201D;
&x201C;Are you sure that any other agent would be able to handle someone like you?&x201D; Vera asked as she glared at Jiang Yuning.
&x201C;I think Director Shen was getting along pretty well with me.&x201D;
&x201C;I have already signed an official employment contract with Guangying Media so you can just give up on any of your ideas now,&x201D; Vera replied before she continued driving.
Jiang Yuning secretly grinned when she heard Vera&x2019;s reply.
They arrived at their destination shortly after.
The new variety show that Jiang Yuning was to participate in was called
All the tasks and the missions prepared by the production team that were to be completed by the participants were simulations of the predicaments and possible dangers possibly encountered by someone stranded in a tropical jungle. Therefore, this variety show was usually filled with endless thrills and excitement.
&x201C;This variety show is a golden opportunity for you. The previous resident guests for the past seasons of this variety show have all succeeded and achieved fame due to their participation in this show and also the large number of fans supporting this show,&x201D; Vera whispered to Jiang Yuning as they were waiting for Jiang Yuning to get her photograph taken.
&x201C;Is that why you want me to participate in this variety show?&x201D; Jiang Yuning asked, feeling something amiss.
&x201C;You have just restarted your career again. It is the best time for you to gain the favor and approval of any passers-by so that you can change how the netizens perceive you. It is not a bad idea to get you involved in variety shows. As long as you keep up your usual personality and playfulness, and put some of the nonsensical skills that you have to good use, I believe that the audience would definitely love you.&x201D;
&x201C;Whose skills are you referring to as nonsensical?&x201D; Jiang Yuning asked, obviously displeased. She had learned and picked up most of those skills from filming all her dramas in the past.
Although she had acting skills rated 4.0 back then, she had successfully learned many other things that she thought were useful.
&x201C;I got it. I got it. I am in the wrong,&x201D; Vera quickly apologized.
&x201C;Who are the other guests who will be participating in the show alongside me this time? Are there any particularly difficult people this time?&x201D;
&x201C;There are three celebrities, namely you, an artiste who has risen to fame quickly, and a hot actor who used to be extremely popular in the past,&x201D; Vera replied.
As soon as Jiang Yuning heard the list of the celebrities who would be participating in the variety show, she felt that the production team was very good at selecting the participants. There was a blacklisted artiste, an up-and-coming artiste, as well as an artiste who used to be in the spotlight.
The three of them were at the bottlenecks of their respective fields and it would be difficult for them to have a breakthrough. However, if the three of them were put together, they might actually be able to create a spark that would be sufficient to help them achieve a breakthrough.
&x201C;What about the other guests?&x201D;
&x201C;Confidentiality of the participants for the expert group is very strict. The only rumor that I have heard of is that Xu Beishen, the young lady of the prestigious Xu family would be joining as a part of the expert group. She is a biology graduate who has recently returned to the country,&x201D; Vera replied casually.
Jiang Yuning frowned as soon as she heard the words &x2018;Xu Beishen&x2019;.
&x201C;Are you sure about this?&x201D;
&x201C;What is wrong?&x201D; Vera asked when she saw the strange expression on Jiang Yuning&x2019;s face.
Jiang Yuning briefly explained the entire situation involving Xu Beishen to Vera. After listening to Jiang Yuning&x2019;s story, the expression on Vera&x2019;s face changed immediately. &x201C;Do you think that she is joining the program because of you? If you really do not want to meet and be involved with her, we can just reject the invitation and exit the
&x201C;No. If she has really joined the program because of me, then I would like to stay and see what she is capable of.&x201D;
Vera suddenly felt chills down her spine when she looked at Jiang Yuning. She knew that the fox inside of Jiang Yuning had awaken.
The love rivals would finally be meeting face to face.
To be honest, in Vera&x2019;s heart, the only point that Xu Beishen could beat Jiang Yuning in was her education level.
So what if she was an expert? She might not necessarily know more than Jiang Yuning did.
Of course, Jiang Yuning did not tell Lu Jingzhi about this matter. After all, second brother had already done his part to ensure that the other party would give up on him. Since the other party was refusing to give up, she should step up and deal with this matter personally. As second brother had once said, there were also certain things between women that should be dealt with in private.
She had second brother&x2019;s love and affection and she was confident in their relationship. Therefore, she was not afraid at all.
After taking the promotional photos, Jiang Yuning and Vera then left for home.
However, just before Jiang Yuning got off the car to enter the villa, Vera nudged her and gave her a gentle reminder. &x201C;I just wanted to let you know that Xu Beishen would also be participating in the press conference that will be held the day after tomorrow.&x201D;
&x201C;She can come if she wants to. Why would I be afraid of her?&x201D;
Jiang Yuning used to think of Xu Beishen as a thorn in her flesh. This was especially so when she attended Lu Jingzhi&x2019;s graduation ceremony in the past. She had been so upset when she saw Xu Beishen clinging onto Lu Jingzhi and following him around throughout the entire graduation ceremony.
However, ever since Lu Jingzhi told her that he had never had any interest or feelings for Xu Beishen before, it felt as though the thorn in her flesh was finally gone. Although she still disliked Xu Beishen and felt uncomfortable when she was around, this feeling was purely driven by her strong sense of possessiveness towards Lu Jingzhi.
&x201C;You will have to attend an interview tomorrow. Besides that, I am currently in the process of negotiating another drama script for you. I will show it to you when the negotiation goes through successfully.&x201D;
&x201C;I got it,&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied as she nodded her head. &x201C;I will be going camping with my brother for two days after the press conference.&x201D;
&x201C;Why?&x201D; Vera asked as she looked at Jiang Yuning with a puzzled expression on her face.
&x201C;Because my brother has always loved exciting and adventurous sports ever since he was a young boy. He also likes to hike and climb mountains. Therefore, I would like to spend some time with him and create some memories for both of us,&x201D; Jiang Yuning quickly explained herself.
The next day, Jiang Yuning attended an interview to talk about her participation in
&x201C;What is the matter?&x201D; Jiang Yuning quickly asked Vera as soon as she approached her. &x201C;What happened?&x201D;
&x201C;Take a look at this,&x201D; Vera replied as she handed her cell phone over to Jiang Yuning.
Jiang Yuning took the cell phone in her hand and looked at the huge headlines of the article that was posted on the internet. &x201C;Exposing Yao Fan&x2019;s Gold Sponsor and Her Interference in His Marriage.&x201D;
There were several intimate photographs of Yao Fan and the other party that were taken when they had attended a party reception in the past.
There was also a picture of their love nest abroad, which was more than three thousand square metres in size.
