Early in the morning on the third day, Vera drove down to the villa to pick Jiang Yuning up and drop her off for the filming of the second episode of
The reason why Jiang Yuning always had to spend extra time just hugging Lu Jingzhi and clinging onto him before she left was entirely because she wanted to be able to smell Lu Jingzhi even after she had already left him.
She wanted to have his fragrance and scent imprinted on herself so that she could smell him whenever she missed him and she would not be so afraid and unwilling to be away from him then.
&x201C;Come on, you have to leave already. Vera is already waiting for you outside,&x201D; Lu Jingzhi said as he patted Jiang Yuning on her butt. &x201C;We can continue hugging one another when you are back.&x201D;
&x201C;Oh! You don&x2019;t love me anymore. Is that why you are chasing me to leave you sooner now?&x201D; Jiang Yuning whined as she moved away from Lu Jingzhi&x2019;s body as though she had been seriously wronged.
Lu Jingzhi looked at Jiang Yuning with a helpless expression on his face before he approached her and hugged her again.
&x201C;I wish that I could bring you wherever I go and show you off to everyone I meet. So, how about&x2026;we make our relationship known to the public?&x201D;
As soon as Jiang Yuning heard that suggestion, she quickly jumped up and said, &x201C;Second brother, be good when you are home alone. I have to leave now&x2026;&x201D;
Lu Jingzhi took the opportunity to hold onto Jiang Yuning as he sighed and said, &x201C;Why? Am I really that embarrassing to you?&x201D;
&x201C;It is not that you are embarrassing. It is just that I am not good or worthy enough to be called your wife yet. I am leaving now, my dear husband.&x201D; After that, Jiang Yuning dragged her small suitcase behind her as she pushed the door of the villa open and walked towards Vera&x2019;s car immediately.
However, Jiang Yuning&x2019;s words left a huge impact on Lu Jingzhi.
Although Jiang Yuning was always happy and smiling whenever she was with him, she was in fact a very fragile person and she often felt inferior when standing next to someone like Lu Jingzhi. This was because the man that she loved and belonged to was not any other ordinary man, but he was none other than Lu Jingzhi, the man whom everyone admired and respected.
When Lu Jingzhi thought about how inferior Jiang Yuning felt next to him, he took a deep breath before he whispered to himself, &x201C;Whatever you are, wherever you are, I always want to show you off to the world.&x201D;
&x201C;Wow! You have actually gotten into the car earlier than usual today!&x201D; Vera exclaimed as soon as she looked at her watch when she saw Jiang Yuning placing her suitcase neatly into the car. &x201C;I was expecting you to take another half an hour before you are willing to step away from the second young master Lu.&x201D;
&x201C;Hmm&x2026;&x201D; Jiang Yuning snorted as she glared at Vera. &x201C;A single person should not speak so much.&x201D;
&x201C;Does it bother you so much that I am single?&x201D; Vera replied as she glared at Jiang Yuning. &x201C;Yuning, I have to tell you that I have a very ominous premonition about the recording of this second episode of the program. Last night, I even dreamt that the production team made a surprising and super big move in this week&x2019;s episode.&x201D;
&x201C;No matter how big or surprising the changes they make, they will not be able to scare me. Moreover, I am the one who will be participating in the program and not you. So, what are you afraid of?&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied immediately. &x201C;Anyway, I am ready for whatever surprises that the production team can throw at me. The production team may think that I would be caught by surprise just because they have kept everything a secret this time, but they might be the ones who would be surprised in the end! I spent the whole day watching a desert island program yesterday. They explored the desert and even walked through many different types of caves. I think the only way the production team would be able to surprise me is if they drop us off on an island filled with aliens.&x201D;
Alright then. Vera had nothing else to say.
Last night, Lu Jingzhi also shared some of his experience from when he was serving in the military and Jiang Yuning had listened to all of his stories with plenty of interest as she hugged him in bed.
Jiang Yuning had been really amazed by the stories that Lu Jingzhi had shared with her.
After a short drive, Jiang Yuning and Vera finally arrived at the location that the production team had arranged for the opening segment of the program.
At this time, Jin Mingchen and some of the other guests who had already arrived were sipping on champagne as they talked and laughed with one another.
After filming the first episode of the program together, the guests had already gotten closer to one another.
&x201C;Sister Yuning&x2026;over here!&x201D; Jin Mingchen yelled as he waved his hands at Jiang Yuning as soon as he saw her arriving at the scene.
Jiang Yuning walked over to Jin Mingchen and he immediately offered her a drink. &x201C;Would you like a drink? The production team has been very kind this time. They have actually prepared a scrumptious breakfast buffet for us and there is even unlimited wine and champagne for us to enjoy! This really is a very refreshing change.&x201D;
Jiang Yuning turned and glanced at the breakfast spread that the production team had prepared for them and she immediately told Jin Mingchen, &x201C;Eat up, kid. Eat more. After all, this might be the last breakfast that you are ever going to enjoy.&x201D;
After listening to Jiang Yuning&x2019;s words, Jin Mingchen opened his eyes wide as he asked Jiang Yuning, &x201C;Sister Yuning&x2026;did you receive any inside news? Is that why you are saying all this?&x201D;
Jiang Yuning quickly shook her head before she responded, &x201C;No. This is my own judgement.&x201D;
After that, Jin Mingchen continued feasting and stuffing his mouth with food before he said, &x201C;Screw this. If I am going to die while filming this episode, I might as well eat as much good food as I can right now.&x201D;
The production team were all filled with relish as they watched Jin Mingchen eating and there was a devilish smile on their faces. It was as though they were trying to say, &x201C;Eat! Eat as much as you can and we will be able to watch a good show later.&x201D;
A short while later, Xu Beishen arrived on the red carpet carrying a backpack on her.
As the production team and crew were all frustrated with her, they pretended not to notice her arrival. Similarly, the guest members also acted as if Xu Beishen did not exist at all.
At this time, it would seem as though Xu Beishen was actually quite pitiful.
&x201C;Sister Yuning, what is the matter? Why do I feel as though Xu Beishen is looking at you with a weird expression on her face? Did you two meet in private before this?&x201D;
Jiang Yuning turned around and face Jin Mingchen with a smile on her face before she replied with four simple and clear words. &x201C;None of your business!&x201D;
&x201C;Ah! Ah! Ah! Sister Yuning, are you going to continue acting so cold and scary towards me even though we are already filming the second episode of the program?&x201D; Jin Mingchen asked with a sad and dramatic expression on his face.
As all of the guests were talking and laughing with one another, the host of the program suddenly appeared in front of them with a loudspeaker in his hand. &x201C;Hello and good afternoon to everyone. I am very happy to see all of you here again today. I can tell that everyone here is very excited because we are about to start filming the second episode of
The guests exchanged glances with one another and they were all in a state of anxiety right now.
They could not guess what the production team had planned for them.
As soon as they thought about the various molluscs and grilled fish that they had to eat during the last episode, the guests quickly filled their belly with more food from the buffet that the production team had prepared for them.
Jiang Yuning was the only one who took and ate only a small portion of the food.
&x201C;Sister Yuning, you are eating too little!&x201D;
&x201C;Even if you stuff yourself with plenty of food right now, you would still have to eat more later on,&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied as she looked at Jin Mingchen. &x201C;Moreover, overeating can cause you physical discomfort and indigestion.&x201D;
&x201C;Alright then. I will not care about you anymore.&x201D; Jin Mingchen said as he continued eating. He had a hamburger in his right hand and a meat skewer in his left.
Half an hour later, the production crew stepped forward and used the loudspeaker to make an announcement. &x201C;The bus that will take us to our final destination is already here. Everyone, please get on the bus now!&x201D;
As soon as the guests heard that the bus was here&x2026;
Everyone felt glum immediately.
&x201C;Sister Yuning, I want to sit with you!&x201D; Jin Mingchen yelled excitedly.
Jiang Yuning stared at Jin Mingchen with a ruthless and indifferent expression on her face. &x201C;Don&x2019;t make me suffer.&x201D;
Suddenly, all the guests who had already boarded the bus started bursting out in laughter.
That silly boy had eaten so much and stuffed himself with so much food earlier. He would definitely suffer from motion sickness later. Who would want to bear with that?
&x201C;Ah! Why do you always hate me!&x201D;
When Brother Zhuang heard Jin Mingchen&x2019;s cries, he immediately raised his hand and motioned for Jin Mingchen to come towards him. &x201C;You can sit with me.&x201D;
As every one of the guests boarded the bus, they all avoided Xu Beishen because nobody wanted to sit with her.
It was obvious that no one in the crew or cast liked her at all.
Eventually, Jiang Yuning went ahead and sat right next to Xu Beishen.
&x201C;I do not need your sympathy,&x201D; Xu Beishen replied as she hugged her backpack tightly when Jiang Yuning sat down beside her.
&x201C;Do you know why everyone is avoiding you or why you are now an outcast?&x201D; Jiang Yuning asked as she tilted her head towards Xu Beishen. &x201C;No one wants to be involved with a lone knight. When you look down on other people, that shows that you have already chosen to exclude yourself from that group of people.&x201D;
&x201C;And&x2026;do you know how much trouble and danger you had brought to the production crew when you risked their lives just because you wanted to run around to look for your plant specimen when you were still recording the show?&x201D;
&x201C;Others do not have the obligation to go to such dangerous places. It was not only a waste of their time, but it was also risky when they had to go out to look for you after you ran away without thinking about those around you. You are very intelligent and powerful, but you lack respect for the people around you. When you do not respect others, they would likewise disrespect you in a similar manner. The reasoning is really that simple.&x201D;
