Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
Lu Jingzhi obviously could not enjoy himself, as Jiang Yuning was very tired.
After Jiang Yuning fell asleep, he turned around and pulled Jiang Yuning into his arms as he hugged her tightly.
It had been so difficult for him to fall asleep the past two nights because he felt so lonely. Two nights without Jiang Yuning felt like a century.
Now, he finally understood why he couldn&x2019;t eat or sleep when she was not around.
He knew that Jiang Yuning felt the same way about him. Just as these thoughts were running through his mind, Jiang Yuning suddenly murmured in her sleep, &x201C;Second brother&x2026;I really missed you so much.&x201D;
Lu Jingzhi could not help but sigh as soon as he heard those words. He simply kissed Jiang Yuning&x2019;s forehead gently before he whispered, &x201C;I missed you too&x2026;&x201D;
Vera decided not to appear at the Royal Dragon Villa for the next three days because Jiang Yuning had been so tired and exhausted when she sent her home. She wanted Jiang Yuning to rest and recuperate.
During that time, Vera had to search and decide on the gown that Jiang Yuning would be wearing to attend the annual dinner hosted by Guangying Media. Moreover, she wanted to stay away from the Royal Dragon Villa in order to preserve her own life.
However, as Jiang Yuning was resting at home, something happened to Director Mong.
Some media received some inside news that Jiang Yuning would no longer be the first female lead of
A short while later, some keyboard warriors started getting active on the internet and started commenting that it was only reasonable for the director to replace Jiang Yuning with another actress since Jiang Yuning&x2019;s acting skills were questionable.
As soon as Vera saw the news, she contacted Director Mong&x2019;s personal assistant immediately. &x201C;What is going on with the rumors spreading all across the internet?&x201D;
&x201C;Sister Vera, don&x2019;t worry about it. Someone is trying to put pressure on Director Mong so that he will cave and give the role of the first female lead to Ling Fei instead of Sister Yuning. However, our Director Mong has never been one to give in to pressure. The more anyone forces him to do something, the more impossible it will be for them to achieve their goal,&x201D; the young assistant quickly assured Vera. &x201C;I am just very curious. Why is Ling Fei so adamant on getting the role of the first female lead in
&x201C;Who knows what is going on in her mind?&x201D; Vera sneered. She had already heard stories about how shameless Ling Fei&x2019;s agent and team could be, but she did not understand how they could be so brazen to try and snatch the role of the first female lead of
&x201C;I have also heard that Ling Fei has a very powerful figure backing her up behind the scenes. So, even though the director of
Hm. Who was the powerful figure that was backing Ling Fei up?
Ling Fei&x2019;s team adopted a high-pressure policy, sending people up to Director Mong&x2019;s doorsteps everyday in order to pressure him, but it seemed as though their strategy was not working at all.
Annoyed, Ling Fei&x2019;s team contacted Director Mong directly. &x201C;If we can&x2019;t get you to replace Jiang Yuning, then we will just replace you!&x201D;
How could these people who were trying to rob someone else of their role&x2026;be so arrogant nowadays?
Ling Fei&x2019;s team did not understand Director Mong&x2019;s importance in the drama
In the end, Director Mong decided that he&x2019;d had enough. He contacted Ling Fei&x2019;s team before he said, &x201C;Bring your actress to come and meet me tomorrow.&x201D;
&x201C;Director Mong, are you really going to replace Sister Yuning?&x201D; the young assistant was a little worried and she really wanted to inform Jiang Yuning on what was happening.
&x201C;What do you think?&x201D; Director Mong asked coldly. &x201C;Don&x2019;t you think that it&x2019;s a terrible thing for an actress to have such a powerful figure supporting and backing her up behind the scenes? However, even if God had her back, she would never be able to rob any roles from anyone in my drama! Never!&x201D;
Shortly after that, Vera informed Jiang Yuning about the incident where Ling Fei&x2019;s team was putting pressure on Director Mong.
She would never have expected this kind of behaviour from a celebrity team in the entertainment circle.
&x201C;I have already asked your brother to conduct a detailed investigation into Ling Fei and her team. We will get the results of his investigation latest by tomorrow. Let&x2019;s wait and see how powerful the man who is backing Ling Fei really is. Anyway, you can be rest assured because Director Mong is not like any other ordinary director.&x201D;
&x201C;I think you really provoked Ling Fei during the time you spent together on the island.&x201D;
Vera could not help but chuckle.
&x201C;It must not be easy for Director Mong to deal with all this pressure. I will make him some tea to relieve and eliminate his stress,&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied over the phone. &x201C;Come over to the villa tomorrow.&x201D;
&x201C;No!&x201D; Vera rejected immediately.
&x201C;Second brother will not be home in the morning,&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied as she rolled her eyes. &x201C;Moreover, I will be preparing you some tea that will not only rejuvenate, but also have some beautifying effects. If you do not want&x2026;&x201D;
&x201C;I want it.&x201D; Vera gave in and compromised in an instant. This was because Vera knew better than anyone else that Jiang Yuning&x2019;s tea-making skills were really one of a kind.
&x201C;I will be waiting for your news.&x201D;
After that, Jiang Yuning hung up the phone before she went to the kitchen to make a pot of fragrant soothing tea for Lu Jingzhi.
Lu Jingzhi looked up at Jiang Yuning when she handed him the tea cup and he took a sip of tea before he continued reading his book. &x201C;I feel uneasy because you have been so obedient for the past two days.&x201D;
Jiang Yuning listened to Lu Jingzhi&x2019;s words and she sat down on his lap before she started stroking his face gently. &x201C;Well, I have to protect these pair of eyes that make me feel amazed every time I look at them. By the way, second brother, why have you been constantly reading this few days?&x201D;
&x201C;To distract myself.&x201D; After that, the second young master Lu continued reading his book.
&x201C;Distracting yourself from what?&x201D; Jiang Yuning asked as she was a little confused at the moment.
&x201C;You have not fully recovered yet.&x201D;
&x201C;What has this got to do with my body&x2026;&x201D; At the end of her sentence, Jiang Yuning finally understood what Lu Jingzhi was trying to say. So, this was how her man chose to calm himself down.
&x201C;And you are sitting on my lap and looing at me like this. Do you really want me to stop holding back? Huh?&x201D;
Jiang Yuning held Lu Jingzhi&x2019;s face in her hands before she kissed him on his lips gently. &x201C;Okay, I got it. I am going down now.&x201D;
Alas, she did not want to waste her man&x2019;s efforts.
However, as soon as she stood up, Lu Jingzhi reached out and pulled her back into his arms. &x201C;Stay and read with me.&x201D;
&x201C;I will bring my script down to accompany you here!&x201D;
When you are around, Lu Jingzhi probably does not even know what book he is holding in his hands. He is already too distracted!
Early the next morning, Jiang Yuning was woken up by an incoming phone call from Vera. When Jiang Yuning thought about the man who was backing Ling Fei up, she sat up immediately and answered the phone. &x201C;Have you found out already?&x201D;
&x201C;You are really lucky. The sun is already shining brightly and you are still in bed?&x201D;
&x201C;Why don&x2019;t you talk about the last two nights where I did not sleep at all because I was busy participating in the variety program? Stop talking nonsense and get to the main point already!&x201D;
Vera snorted before she looked at the data that she had in her hands. &x201C;Ling Fei does not have any significant background of her own, but she has some very good luck. A very influential and powerful man has taken a liking to her for many years already. You could say that this man is basically the reason why Ling Fei could make it this far today, but the funny thing is, Ling Fei does not like him at all.&x201D;
&x201C;This time, it is also this magnate putting pressure on Director Mong and trying to force him to cast Ling Fei in his drama instead.&x201D;
&x201C;What is even more interesting is that this magnate comes from the Bai family. He was your school mate in junior high school.&x201D;
&x201C;The Bai family?&x201D; Jiang Yuning tried to think and she recalled that there was indeed someone like that during her schooling days. &x201C;It is no wonder why Ling Fei could be so arrogant. The young master Bai must be busy planting mines for anyone standing in her way.&x201D;
&x201C;What is there to be amazed about?&x201D; Vera sneered. &x201C;You have your own pillar of support. It is just that you never want to use it. Otherwise, the entertainment industry would have already been under your control. What I find even more interesting is the fact that Ling Fei is really in love with Xiao Chennan.&x201D;
&x201C;That&x2019;s boring,&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied as she pouted. &x201C;Let&x2019;s wait and see how Director Mong responds. If Ling Fei continues to push things, then we can only help the magnate open his eyes and see Ling Fei for who she really is&x2026;&x201D;
