Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
Jiang Yuning took the white envelope from Sister Liang and when she opened it up, she realized that it was an invitation letter from Lu Jingzhi&x2019;s university. As an alumnus of the university, Lu Jingzhi was invited to participate in the university&x2019;s sixtieth anniversary dinner tomorrow night.
&x201C;What is that?&x201D;
Vera asked Jiang Yuning but when she saw the invitation letter, she immediately replied, &x201C;Oh, since the second young master Lu is an alumnus of the university, it is normal for him to receive invitations to attend events such as this.&x201D;
Jiang Yuning quickly held out the invitation letter and smiled reluctantly before she asked Sister Liang to put the invitation letter in a prominent place in case second brother needed to use it.
Alas, nobody would understand the bitterness that she was feeling in her heart.
Vera did not notice anything unusual and she continued looking and deciding on the next activity that she should secure for Jiang Yuning. &x201C;That&x2019;s right, I almost forgot! After participating in the recording for the third issue of
&x201C;Alright. You can make the arrangements for me,&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied in a bitter manner as she nodded her head.
Later that afternoon, Jiang Yuning went to the music teacher&x2019;s house for her singing lessons before she headed directly to the shooting range for her training.
However, Jiang Yuning did not need help from her coach at all today. This was because she vented her anger and all her feelings that were pent up deep inside her and focused it on the bullets instead.
&x201C;Not bad. You did very well today. You are making good progress.&x201D; The female coach who was standing behind Jiang Yuning praised her because she did not know the reason behind Jiang Yuning&x2019;s motivation today.
After she was done with her training at the shooting range, Jiang Yuning went home immediately and after taking a shower, she took out her script and started memorizing her lines for the upcoming drama. It seemed as though this was the only way to stop herself from overthinking.
At half past six later that evening, Lu Jingzhi received news that his wife had already completed her training at the shooting range in the afternoon. She was just telling him how much she needed him as her motivation yesterday, but why did she go to the shooting range by herself today?
Lu Jingzhi arrived back at the villa at seven o&x2019;clock at night and as soon as he stepped into the house, Sister Liang quickly approached him and said, &x201C;Sir, I seemed to have done something wrong.&x201D;
Sister Liang felt very guilty and felt as though she was the reason why Jiang Yuning was upset. Although Jiang Yuning did not say anything, Sister Liang could tell that she was not her usual self and that she seemed a little upset.
After explaining the situation to Lu Jingzhi, Sister Liang handed the invitation letter over to him.
Lu Jingzhi took the invitation letter from Sister Liang before he nodded slightly. &x201C;Okay, I got it. You can get off work now.&x201D;
Lu Jingzhi then took the invitation card as he headed to the balcony on the second floor. He saw Jiang Yuning sitting on the lounge chair on the balcony as she enjoyed the cold and chilly sea breeze.
Lu Jingzhi put down the invitation letter and then walked behind Jiang Yuning and carried her up from the chair before bringing her into their bedroom. &x201C;It&x2019;s cold outside. You will fall sick easily like this.&x201D;
&x201C;Second brother.&x201D; Jiang Yuning wrapped her arms around Lu Jingzhi&x2019;s neck and she felt like crying because she felt so much distress. &x201C;Although I know that it&x2019;s not my fault, but I feel that there are some things that I would never be able to measure up to or replace no matter how hard I try. I am really sad, second brother. I have really been working very hard but it does not seem to matter anyway&x2026;&x201D;
&x201C;But I will not be able to attend your university&x2019;s anniversary dinner with you. I&x2026;&x201D;
Lu Jingzhi&x2019;s heart ached as soon as Jiang Yuning started crying. He quickly sat her down on the edge of the bed before he started comforting her. &x201C;Why can&x2019;t you go with me? Why do you think my wife is not qualified to go with me?&x201D;
&x201C;You know what I mean&x2026;&x201D;
&x201C;The measure of a person&x2019;s worth is not solely on academic qualifications. Everyone knows of what happened to the Jiang family five years ago. That is not your fault. You do not need to feel inferior because of this,&x201D; Lu Jingzhi said as he hugged and comforted the person in his arms. &x201C;Silly girl. How long have you been keeping this in your heart?&x201D;
&x201C;I&x2026;I do not want to embarrass you.&x201D;
&x201C;I will never be ashamed of you,&x201D; Lu Jingzhi emphasized once again as he held Jiang Yuning&x2019;s face in his hands. &x201C;If I was the one who had dropped out of school in the past, would you feel ashamed of me today?&x201D;
&x201C;Of course not!&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied without any hesitation at all. &x201C;You are the most amazing man that I have ever met in my life. Even if you had never studied, and even if you were doing something else, I believe that you would still be able to achieve everything that you have today.&x201D;
&x201C;That is what I feel about you too&x2026;don&x2019;t you trust my judgment?&x201D;
&x201C;Ningning, you need to work hard everyday but even though you have lost plenty in life, you have also gained a lot of valuable things. This is the true wealth that you have accumulated in this life. Your past regrets should be left in the past and you should learn to let go of the past. The person that people truly appreciate is the Jiang Yuning that you are right now, and not who you were in the past. Do you understand now?&x201D;
&x201C;Sobs&x2026;&x201D; After listening to Lu Jingzhi&x2019;s words, Jiang Yuning rushed into his arms and buried her face in his chest. &x201C;I promise that I will try to live more brazenly in future.&x201D;
&x201C;I want you to promise not to hide anything that makes you unhappy in your heart in future, okay?&x201D;
&x201C;I understand,&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied as she nodded her head.
&x201C;Moreover, you will already be joining the cast to film the third issue of
&x201C;Second brother, I will not act like this again in future,&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied as she leaned against Lu Jingzhi&x2019;s chest.
Lu Jingzhi did not reply but he merely continued hugging her tightly in his arms.
His heart was aching.
In fact, when Jiang Yuning felt inferior, he was the one who felt the most pain and guilt.
However, he could not tell her what he felt because he did not want Jiang Yuning to cry.
As long as Jiang Yuning felt inferior, Lu Jingzhi could not help but feel as though he was the one to blame. He was the one who had failed to force her to continue studying and instead chose to protect her from afar.
At that time, neither of them knew of the other&x2019;s true feelings.
What rights did he have to intervene in her life?
&x201C;Oh, second brother&x2026;Vera told me earlier that after I return from recording the third issue of
&x201C;I see. No problem, I can make the necessary arrangements with uncle later. Are you back to your normal self now?&x201D; Lu Jingzhi asked as he held Jiang Yuning&x2019;s face in his hands.
Recovered. She was fully recovered.
Since Lu Jingzhi was already so sincere, wouldn&x2019;t it make him sad if she continued being upset?
It was not a big deal. She could just be stronger and put up with her own insecurities so that things would be simpler. Moreover, second brother was right. No one could use her past to judge her or define the kind of person that she was now.
&x201C;You will be filming tomorrow. Make sure that you are not covered with wounds all over your hands and feet again. If I find out&x2026;&x201D;
&x201C;What will you do when you find out about it?&x201D;
Lu Jingzhi rubbed his lips gently against Jiang Yuning&x2019;s lips before he replied in a dangerous tone, &x201C;I will punish you&x2026;&x201D;
That night, Jiang Yuning was not the first person to fall asleep. After an intimate session with Lu Jingzhi, Jiang Yuning opened her eyes and stared at the man who was holding her in his arms.
Her charismatic husband was back again&x2026;
Other people spent their days chasing after their idols, and Jiang Yuning, who was many people&x2019;s idol, was chasing after her own husband.
Early the next morning, Vera arrived at the entrance of the villa to pick Jiang Yuning up to drop her off at the location where the cast and crew were meeting up. She had deliberately arrived an hour earlier in order to let Jiang Yuning feel as though she was spending more time with Lu Jingzhi without having to rush.
However, much to Vera&x2019;s surprise, Jiang Yuning did not dawdle at all and she quickly got into the company car with her luggage in tow.
&x201C;What is happening today?&x201D;
&x201C;You will not understand anyway. Second brother has promised to attend the annual dinner hosted by Guangying Media together with me. I am very motivated and energized now!&x201D;
Vera rolled her eyes after listening to Jiang Yuning&x2019;s explanation. What else could she have expected from her?
&x201C;I am suddenly really looking forward to see how the producers intend to abuse you during the third issue of
Abuse her? Well, she really wanted to see what mission and challenges the director and producers had prepared for her this time.
