It was the first time anyone had seen Lu Jingzhi so mad and angry. Even Xu Liangzhou could not help gulping as his limbs tightened.
On the other hand, Xu Beishen was so frightened that she held tightly onto Xu Liangzhou&x2019;s coat as tears streamed down her pale white face.
&x201C;Since you are a member of the prestigious Xu family, then please respect your family name and stop doing things that would tarnish your family&x2019;s reputation. You are making life very difficult for us.&x201D;
&x201C;Jingzhi, you know that she is only doing all this because of her love and admiration for you&x2026;&x201D; Xu Liangzhou tried to appease Lu Jingzhi, hoping to ease the tension at the moment.
Lu Jingzhi did not appreciate his attempt to make peace. Instead he responded coldly, &x201C;Please ask her to stop interfering in other people&x2019;s lives and to stop hurting others. Xu Beishen, I do not want you to admire me or to like me at all. I already have a lover and a wife that I love.&x201D;
&x201C;Even if your lover is not faithful to you?&x201D; Xu Beishen asked, as tears continued falling down her face. It took her all of her courage to speak up and refute Lu Jingzhi&x2019;s words.
Everyone could see her trembling fists and hear the quiver in her voice.
Though she was afraid, she was still pushing it because she did not want to lose this opportunity to speak up.
After listening to Xu Beishen&x2019;s question, Lu Jingzhi turned around to look at Jiang Yuning before he replied Xu Beishen. &x201C;Do you know what love is? Even if she is not loyal to me or even if she murders or commits arson, she is still a part of my heart. Moreover, I know better than anyone else what Yuning feels about me. You are just an outsider, so what do you know about our lives or our relationship? Stop using your brother as a shield to continue provoking me and to try and hurt Yuning. This is my last warning to you.&x201D;
Lu Jingzhi&x2019;s words were loud and clear to everyone present.
Even people with no self-respect would know that they should stop whatever they were doing at this point.
She was a magnificent young lady from the prestigious Xu family. So, why was she embarrassing herself?
Xu Beishen could not blame anyone but herself for the plight that she was in.
At this moment, Xu Beishen should understand clearly that Lu Jingzhi did not mind the background or education level of the woman that he loved. He loved her for who she was.
When Jiang Yuning saw how tensed and awkward the situation was, she quickly wrapped her arms around Lu Jingzhi&x2019;s neck as she tried to calm him down and appease him. After that, Jiang Yuning stood up before she spoke to Xu Liangzhou. &x201C;Brother Xu, I am not here to bully your sister today. You should ask your sister what she has done behind the scenes to try and hurt me and second brother.&x201D;
&x201C;I, Jiang Yuning, has never been afraid of anyone challenging me face to face, but I really cannot tolerate people who use despicable means to try and stab me in the back.&x201D;
&x201C;I can accept it if she wants to challenge me in a fair manner, but I will not tolerate or accept any unwarranted fabrications.&x201D;
&x201C;You are her older brother and you should understand what I am trying to tell you today. If you do not teach your sister or control how she acts and behaves, someone else would definitely teach your sister a lesson one day even if we do not educate her today.&x201D;
&x201C;I am not asking for her to disappear from my sight completely because that would be too demanding of me. However, I want your sister to know that I am not afraid of anyone.&x201D;
After speaking to Xu Liangzhou, Jiang Yuning paused for a moment as she looked at Xu Beishen before she continued speaking. &x201C;If you are still discontented and refuse to accept reality, I can accept your challenge, provided that you are willing to compete with me in a fair manner. If you continue to use those despicable methods to get rid of me, I can assure you that the next time, second brother would not even need to lift a finger. I will make sure that you have no future in Luo City then. You had better believe that I have that ability.&x201D;
&x201C;As for the relationship between my husband and I, I believe that our relationship is our own personal matter and it has nothing to do with you at all! So, please know where you stand and mind your own business!&x201D;
After listening to both Lu Jingzhi and Jiang Yuning&x2019;s lecture, Xu Liangzhou took a deep breath and placed his hands in his pockets before he lowered his head and thought for a moment. After a short while, he finally raised his head and reprimanded his younger sister in front of everyone. &x201C;Our Xu family was not strict enough and we did not discipline you the way that we should have. Xu Beishen, you have not only embarrassed yourself today, but you have also embarrassed the Xu family.&x201D;
Xu Liangzhou then turned around to look at both Lu Jingzhi and Jiang Yuning. &x201C;If she does something stupid to hurt or harm any of you again, you can teach her a lesson. You do not need to notify me in advance in future.&x201D;
&x201C;As what sister-in-law has mentioned earlier, if you do not teach her a lesson today, someday, someone else would help me teach her a lesson.&x201D;
&x201C;I do not know how I have ended up with such a selfish sister, but you had better behave yourself in future, Xu Beishen. Otherwise, I will disown you from the Xu family!&x201D;
&x201C;Stop crying. Wash your face and think of all the horrible things that you have done! Didn&x2019;t you hear what sister-in-law just said? If you are still discontented, then you can challenge her fairly to prove your own ability. Hopefully, you can defeat her in a fair manner then.&x201D;
After Xu Liangzhou reprimanded her, Xu Beishen wiped away the tears on her face before she looked at Lu Jingzhi and Jiang Yuning with her red and swollen eyes. &x201C;I admit that the method that I had used was indeed a little too despicable, but the only reason why I did that is because I am skeptical about Jiang Yuning&x2019;s true personality! I do not want Brother Lu to be deceived by her sweet and innocent appearance. However, that does not mean that I do not have any self-esteem at all.&x201D;
&x201C;I will reorganize my thoughts and sort my own feelings out. I will also withdraw all the fake news and rumors that I had spread about Jiang Yuning earlier today. However, this does not mean that I am convinced that Jiang Yuning deserves to be with Brother Lu. I will still challenge you directly and in the next episode of
Jiang Yuning listened to Xu Beishen&x2019;s words before she replied, &x201C;No problem, bring it on.&x201D;
&x201C;This is how it should be.&x201D; When Jian Shaoqi saw that everyone&x2019;s anger was starting to dissipate, he quickly stepped in to clean up the mess. &x201C;We are all friends here. There is no need to treat it as though any of us are enemies in this room. Beishen, you have to accept that in this life, some things are fated not to belong to you. There is no way that you can force things to turn out the way you want them to.&x201D;
&x201C;Even your brother did not have a say in his own marriage.&x201D;
&x201C;Now that everyone has already made things clear today, there is no need to bring this matter up again in future. But sister-in-law&x2026;can you help us to release the tension here a little?&x201D; Jian Shaoqi asked as he pointed his chin at Lu Jingzhi in a discreet manner. &x201C;This is the first time I have seen him so angry.&x201D;
&x201C;It is also my first time,&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied as she leaned back into Lu Jingzhi&x2019;s arm.
&x201C;Would you like to witness it a second time?&x201D; Lu Jingzhi asked as he glared at Jian Shaoqi.
Jian Shaoqi quickly waved his hands as he replied, &x201C;No, no. It is already so late at night. It is time to sleep now&x2026;&x201D;
&x201C;That is right. Since we are already in the presidential suite, then you can just rest here with sister-in-law tonight, Jingzhi. I have already settled the bill before we came in earlier. I believe sister-in-law is also tired today. Don&x2019;t go home. I have also prepared a little surprise for both of you!&x201D; Wen Luo replied as he laughed.
This time, Lu Jingzhi did not reject Wen Luo&x2019;s suggestion.
&x201C;Let&x2019;s go now.&x201D; Xu Liangzhou shouted helplessly as he looked at his sister. &x201C;Know your own place and face reality already.&x201D;
Xu Beishen did not dare to turn around to look at the two people who were being intimate on the sofa. She wiped away the tears on her face and followed quietly behind Xu Liangzhou as they left the hotel.
She did not want even the last remaining trace of her self-esteem to be crushed by Lu Jingzhi.
At this time, only Lu Jingzhi and Jiang Yuning were left in the presidential suite.
Jiang Yuning took the opportunity to sit on Lu Jingzhi&x2019;s lap before she held his face in her hands and asked, &x201C;Were you really angry today?&x201D;
Lu Jingzhi put his arms around her waist and hugged her tightly before he replied, &x201C;What else?&x201D;
&x201C;When I was recording the program, there would always be at least one cameraman and the production crew following each and every one of us throughout the whole process. Things did not happen as what Xu Beishen had hinted. However, because of what Xu Beishen did, I have thought more about this matter and I realize that I need to pay more attention in future so that I can avoid getting into this kind of situation&x2026;&x201D; Jiang Yuning said in self-reflection.
&x201C;I know what kind of person you are from the inside out. If I believe the rumors that are out there, or if I believe anything that an outsider is saying about you, then I am not fit to be your husband at all. How would I be worthy? I know the nature of your job and I know how reality shows work. So, you can do anything you want,&x201D; Lu Jingzhi replied as he gently brushed his hands through her long black hair.
As they both continued talking, the room service staff suddenly rang the doorbell of the room.
Lu Jingzhi got up from the sofa and opened the room door before he took a gift box from the hotel staff. He then opened up the gift box that Wen Luo had prepared for him and Jiang Yuning&x2026;
Jiang Yuning jumped up from the sofa and looked into the gift box before she started laughing out loud. &x201C;Is this the gift that Wen Luo had prepared for us?&x201D;
It was a box full of sex toys. Who would want to use them?
