She did not need to worry about anything and she could just follow after his footsteps because she knew that she was in good hands.

&x201C;Aren&x2019;t you going to keep up with me?&x201D; Lu Jingzhi asked when he turned around and saw that Jiang Yuning was simply standing and staring at him without moving at all.

&x201C;I am coming,&x201D; Jiang Yuning quickly caught up with Lu Jingzhi before she held onto his hand.

Jiang Yuning was really happy for these past two days. Although it had been really tedious and difficult, Jiang Yuning felt that this trip had been really rewarding.

She had also managed to take many photographs of the beautiful scenery from the mountain, as well as many photographs of herself with both Ku Jie and Lu Jingzhi.

Jiang Yuning was still very excited even after they made their way down the mountain successfully. After getting into the car, Jiang Yuning thought about all the other things that she wanted to do with Lu Jingzhi in future. This way, she could discover the many more secret charms and talents that Lu Jingzhi had.


When they finally arrived back at the villa, it was already nine o&x2019;clock at night. At this time, Sister Liang was still on standby in the kitchen to prepare dinner for them.

Lu Jingzhi brought Jiang Yuning up to the bathroom immediately so that she could take a bath and wash away all of her exhaustion.

When they were in the shower, Jiang Yuning noticed that there were many blisters and cuts on Lu Jingzhi&x2019;s hands. When she thought about how hard Lu Jingzhi had been working to teach her and keep her safe throughout the entire day, she felt as though she was about to burst into tears.

&x201C;Sobs. My heart is aching.&x201D;

&x201C;These are just some minor cuts. I will deal with it in a while.&x201D;

&x201C;No. I will fill the bathtub up with warm water and some essential oil now. You should soak in the bath and relax a little tonight,&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied as she quickly walked out of the shower to fill the tub with warm water.

Lu Jingzhi followed after Jiang Yuning and hugged her from the back. &x201C;Okay, I got it.&x201D;

&x201C;Second brother, my knees are hurting a lot,&x201D; Jiang Yuning quickly grabbed the opportunity to act coquettishly with Lu Jingzhi.

&x201C;Alright then, I will massage your knees for you later.&x201D;

&x201C;I will give you a massage too!&x201D;

By the time they were done with their bath, the food that Sister Liang had prepared for them was already cold. However, for Jiang Yuning who had eaten wild game that they had caught in the wild for the past two days, she was already hungry when she smelled the food. After what she had eaten in the mountain for the past two days, the homecooked food that laid before her now was still extremely delicious, even if already cold.

After they were done with dinner, Jiang Yuning sat on the bed as she looked through her cell phone to sort out the pictures that she had taken of Lu Jingzhi when they were on the mountain. How could he look so handsome in every shot?

It was insane!

On the other hand, Lu Jingzhi was already accustomed to Jiang Yuning ogling at pictures and videos of him.

However, Lu Jingzhi still felt jealous sometimes because he could not understand how Jiang Yuning could be so obsessed with the photos and videos that she had in her cell phone when he was clearly standing right in front of her at the moment.

&x201C;I want to change the wallpaper on my cell phone. Second brother, you should change your wallpaper too.&x201D;

Jiang Yuning forwarded Lu Jingzhi the picture that he had captured of them both when they had watched the sunrise earlier that day.

&x201C;You really took a very beautiful picture of us.&x201D;

After listening to Jiang Yuning&x2019;s words, Lu Jingzhi took her cell phone out of her hand before he said, &x201C;You are going to leave to shoot your variety show at noon tomorrow. You will be away for at least a few days because of this shoot. Don&x2019;t you have anything that you want to say to me?&x201D;

&x201C;Second brother, aren&x2019;t you exhausted from the hike?&x201D; Jiang Yuning asked as she stared at Lu Jingzhi with her wide and innocent eyes.

&x201C;What do you think?&x201D;

What else was there to say? She would use her actions to prove everything to him.

As the both of them had already done a lot of physical work and used a lot of energy the past two days, even Lu Jingzhi fell into deep sleep that night. Both Jiang Yuning and Lu Jingzhi slept all the way till dawn without any interruption.


Vera arrived at the villa to pick Jiang Yuning up late in the afternoon the very next day. When she saw Jiang Yuning wearing slippers with scars and wounds all over her feet, she was very surprised.

&x201C;Did you go camping or did you go to war?&x201D;

Jiang Yuning&x2019;s calves were hurting and her knees were still swollen from the hike. She remained seated on the sofa because she did not feel like moving at all. &x201C;Don&x2019;t mention it anymore. I can still feel the aftermath of the camping trip.&x201D;

&x201C;Did you gain anything from this trip?&x201D;

&x201C;Of course! Both my brother and second brother had gone out of their way and even stepped out of their own comfort zones because of me. How could I come back empty-handed then?&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied as she glared at Vera. &x201C;So, did Xu Beishen continued sharing her thoughts to the public in the last two days?&x201D;

&x201C;You should take a look at it yourself,&x201D; Vera responded as she opened the internet search page and entered Jiang Yuning&x2019;s name into the search bar.

There were countless compliments and praise about Xu Beishen while on the other hand, there were countless criticisms targeted at Jiang Yuning.

&x201C;Is she hoping to enter the entertainment industry or what? Otherwise, as a biology expert, why is she trying so hard to gain attention and recognition by releasing all these circulars?&x201D;

&x201C;She just wants to step all over you,&x201D; Vera revealed the truth relentlessly.

&x201C;That makes sense.&x201D;

After that, Jiang Yuning returned the cell phone to Vera.

&x201C;Would it be an issue for you to participate in the program later tonight?&x201D;

&x201C;No, it&x2019;s okay. I can still stand it,&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied.

As the production team would be preparing the backpacks for all the guests, Jiang Yuning did not need to pack anything at all.

Later in the evening, Jiang Yuning said her goodbyes to Lu Jingzhi and Sister Liang. After hugging and kissing Lu Jingzhi for a long time, Jiang Yuning was finally willing to get into Vera&x2019;s car.

&x201C;If you continued sticking to Mr. Lu, it would already be morning by the time you are done,&x201D; Vera groaned as soon as Jiang Yuning closed the car door. &x201C;Do you know that you are a very needy person?&x201D;

&x201C;You are single and all alone. So, who gave you the right to complain?&x201D;

Vera was speechless.

She was single by choice so why didn&x2019;t she have the right to comment?

Vera snorted at Jiang Yuning&x2019;s reply.

Very soon, both of them arrived at the set of . At this time, the production team and crew were busy sorting out and gathering the guests. Jin Mingchen had already arrived at the set and he was beckoning Jiang Yuning to take the seat right next to him because he had reserved it for her.

&x201C;Sister Yuning&x2026;&x201D;

Jiang Yuning was dressed in sports attire and she walked across the red carpet as she headed towards Jin Mingchen. Her feet were hurting her but she still smiled professionally at the cameras.

&x201C;Sister Yuning, do you know that the production team really have some other tricks up their sleeve? All three of the guests from the amateur group are problematic! One of them is very strong, but he is not very intelligent. The other guest is very intelligent, but he has a very weak and fragile body. Last but not least, there is another guest who is both very intelligent and has good physical strength, but he is very stubborn and rebellious. He does not look like the type of person who would be able to work in a team. I think that it would definitely be very troublesome to be in a group with any one of them,&x201D; Jin Mingchen sighed as he shared the news to Jiang Yuning as soon as she sat down beside him.

&x201C;Could anyone be more troublesome than you?&x201D;

&x201C;Sister Yuning, don&x2019;t judge me like that. After all, you are still a girl and I am a man. So, I will definitely be more useful than you, right?&x201D; Jin Mingchen showed his dissatisfaction towards Jiang Yuning&x2019;s words. He felt that his gender was already an advantage over Jiang Yuning. &x201C;I am obviously a regular person, so why do I feel so old and weak?&x201D;

&x201C;Dear guests, hello and welcome to the filming set for the first phase of . I am going to brief all of you on the rules and regulations that you have to obey for the first phase of the competition.&x201D;

&x201C;There will be a total of nine guests who will subsequently be divided into three separate groups comprising of one expert, one celebrity, and one amateur in each group. The group members will be decided on a lottery basis and the expert guest in each group would automatically assume the role as the group leader. All the decisions made by the group must ultimately be determined by the group leader.&x201D;

&x201C;The theme for our first episode is called . The time limit that has been given for you to make your way to the destination is twenty-four hours. We will provide each group a simple map as a guideline. The mission for this episode is very simple and straightforward. The group that successfully makes it to the final destination with all three members of the group present will win the mission immediately.&x201D;

&x201C;You can choose to either take a different route or to choose a similar route as the other groups.&x201D;

&x201C;The winning group will receive a very good buff for the next episode whereas any group that fails to reach the destination on time will have to go through a more difficult mission for the next episode. If any group or any one of the group members gives up and choose not to continue with the mission, that group will be immediately eliminated.&x201D;

&x201C;If your group arrives in second or third place while successfully making it to the final destination within the mission time limit, then you will not receive any buff for the next mission. You will also be given the normal mission instead of a more difficult one for the next episode.&x201D;

&x201C;Every one of you is given an opportunity to stop doing the mission whenever you want to. However, you should take note that as soon as one member announces that they would like to quit and that they can no longer continue with the mission, the entire group would then be eliminated as a whole.&x201D;

&x201C;Now, I would like to invite each and every guest to step forward to pick one of these slips of papers. After looking at the number stated on the slip, you can then gather with your assigned team members.&x201D;
