In an instant, it felt as though everyone was holding their breaths.
At this time, Lu Jingzhi quickly walked over to Gu Pingsheng and Jiang Yuning before he greeted indifferently, &x201C;Uncle.&x201D;
Gu Pingsheng was Lu Jingzhi&x2019;s uncle?
How could that even be possible?
No one had ever known that Gu Pingsheng had this sort of family background.
&x201C;Second brother&x2026;&x201D; Jiang Yuning also greeted Lu Jingzhi in an aggrieved manner at this time.
&x201C;What happened? Why do you sound so upset? Did someone bully you?&x201D; Lu Jingzhi reached out his hand and pinched Jiang Yuning&x2019;s cheeks gently in front of everyone else.
Everyone took a deep breath before they secretly heaved a huge sigh of relief. They were all rejoicing because fortunately enough, they were not the person who had just asked Jiang Yuning to take off her high heels and dance for them.
The expression on Hua Xin&x2019;s face was even more ugly at this point.
&x201C;Who would dare to bully her? There would be people who would have flown to her rescue immediately,&x201D; Gu Pingsheng replied as he glared at Jiang Yuning. &x201C;Both of you can go inside and chat with each other. There is nothing for you to do out here anymore.&x201D;
The corners of Lu Jingzhi&x2019;s mouth curved up slightly. In fact, Vera had already told and explained the entire situation to Lu Jingzhi. No one knew when Vera slipped away during the confrontation, but the process was not important because what mattered most was the end result.
Lu Jingzhi reached out his hands and placed his arms around Jiang Yuning&x2019;s shoulders before he turned around and faced the other guests once again. He smiled slightly and winked before he said, &x201C;If anyone else would like to watch someone dancing in future, feel free to approach me and ask me to dance or perform for you. My dancing skills can be pretty impressive too.&x201D;
At this time, everyone could not help but take a step back.
This was because even though most of them were top actors and actresses in the entertainment industry, in front of the Lu family, they were nothing more than just entertainers or performers.
Gu Pingsheng could only glance at Jiang Yuning before he glared at Lu Jingzhi. &x201C;You little brat.&x201D;
&x201C;Go now.&x201D; Lu Jingzhi then brought Jiang Yuning into the living room before they headed into Gu Pingsheng&x2019;s private living quarters.
It was only at this point that the guests finally realized the reason why Jiang Yuning could be so courageous and confident. They vaguely knew that Jiang Yuning and Lu Jingzhi were apparently childhood friends who grew up together. Even though the Jiang family had gone bankrupt a few years ago, they could tell that the Jiang family and the Lu family were still on close terms, judging by Lu Jingzhi&x2019;s protective attitude towards Jiang Yuning.
Who would actually have the right to ask Jiang Yuning to take off her high heels to dance for them to entertain them? That was simply impossible.
At this time, the agent who had just stopped An Yiqing from chatting with Jiang Yuning suddenly turned around and told An Yiqing, &x201C;You can do whatever you want when you see Jiang Yuning in future. I will not stop you or interfere if you want to talk to her or spend time with her in future.&x201D;
&x201C;Alright then! I will ask Sister Yuning for her autograph later!&x201D; An Yiqing squealed excitedly.
At this time, on the balcony on the second floor of the mansion, Lu Jingzhi was hugging Jiang Yuning from the back as they both gazed down at the guests who were all gathered in the garden and courtyard.
&x201C;Second brother&x2026;I don&x2019;t think that it would be good for us to be so intimate right now. This is still uncle&x2019;s house after all&x2026;&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied as she felt a little uneasy.
&x201C;This place right here&x2026;is my room,&x201D; Lu Jingzhi whispered into Jiang Yuning&x2019;s ear. &x201C;In the past, I would always look very cold and indifferent whenever I came to visit my uncle with my mother. That is why he had decided to prepare a private room especially for me so that he would not need to look at me. Out of sight, out of mind.&x201D;
&x201C;Uncle would definitely not despise you&x2026;&x201D;
&x201C;I really thought that&x2026;you would have taken off your high heels and danced for that actress when she had asked you to do so earlier.&x201D;
As soon as Jiang Yuning heard Lu Jingzhi&x2019;s words, she quickly turned around and shook her head as she continued hugging him. &x201C;I can&x2019;t dance for her. There are some things that I will never give in to or agree to because I do not want to embarrass my husband.&x201D;
Lu Jingzhi squeezed Jiang Yuning&x2019;s chin and kissed her gently on her lips as soon as he realized that she had this awareness. &x201C;It&x2019;s good that you know when to take a stand.&x201D;
The both of them were having a peaceful moment to themselves but at this time, the other guests in the courtyard and garden were racking their brains as they tried to picture what they were both doing inside the mansion at this time.
As soon as Jiang Yuning and Lu Jingzhi went into the mansion, Gu Pingsheng quickly took action to try and remedy the entire situation. He instructed Hua Xin&x2019;s agent to bring her back to her residence and to try and appease her so that she would cool down.
However, before Hua Xin left the banquet, Gu Pingsheng took this opportunity to give a warning and heads up to all of his guests. &x201C;I did not expect this to happen tonight but I hope that everyone can keep this matter to themselves and not spread this news out to the public. What I am referring to is my relationship with Jingzhi.&x201D;
There were dozens of people present at this event and as soon as they heard Gu Pingsheng&x2019;s words, they nodded their heads because they naturally knew what they should or should not be speaking about after this.
However, it seemed as though Hua Xin&x2026;had already develop a strong hatred towards Jiang Yuning at this time.
Amongst the sea of people, An Yiqing was holding onto Vera and refusing to let her go as she continued pestering Vera to give her some spoilers of the next issue of
However, as they were both chatting in the aisle, An Yiqing happened to be blocking the path as Hua Xin was trying to leave the banquet. Hua Xin&x2019;s agent immediately yelled at the two of them, &x201C;Make way!&x201D;
&x201C;Oh, I am so sorry,&x201D; An Yiqing quickly apologized as she stepped aside immediately but at this time, Hua Xin still glared at her.
&x201C;You! Very good.&x201D;
From Hua Xin&x2019;s reaction, Vera could tell that she had already considered An Yiqing one of her enemies because she thought that she was on Jiang Yuning&x2019;s side.
Not only did she look down on those who could not act, but she also looked down on her juniors who had good acting skills.
&x201C;Hua Xin glared at you so maliciously earlier. Aren&x2019;t you afraid at all?&x201D; Vera asked as she looked at An Yiqing with a curious expression on her face.
&x201C;Why should I be afraid? I did not do anything wrong. The only thing I had done was to get in her way, but it was completely unintentional. Moreover, I had already stepped aside and made way for her as soon as I realized my mistake&x2026;&x201D;
She was indeed an adorable and na&xEF;ve young girl.
&x201C;But I would still advise you to keep your distance from Yuning and myself. Otherwise, your agent will definitely have a huge headache.&x201D;
&x201C;I am not afraid!&x201D;
When Vera saw An Yiqing acting like a child who had yet to see how scary and terrifying this world could be, she could only sigh as she patted her on her head gently.
&x201C;Yuning just sent me a text message telling me that she wants to go home already. You can go and look for your agent now.&x201D;
&x201C;Alright then, Sister Vera. I hope to see you soon!&x201D; An Yiqing waved goodbye to Vera before she walked over to her agent.
&x201C;Yiqing, just now&x2026;did you intentionally stand in Hua Xin&x2019;s path? Was it deliberate?&x201D; This was because An Yiqing&x2019;s agent had seen that An Yiqing was initially standing on the same side as Vera, until Hua Xin started coming their way.
&x201C;Brother Xuan, what are you trying to say? I don&x2019;t understand what you mean.&x201D; After that, An Yiqing left her agent and headed straight to the dining area.
At this time, Brother Xuan looked suspiciously at An Yiqing&x2019;s back as she walked away from him. Being friends with someone who has a background like Jiang Yuning would indeed be very beneficial for An Yiqing. Moreover, it could also guarantee her a very bright and fruitful career path ahead.
Furthermore, what other ways could be faster and easier for An Yiqing to befriend Jiang Yuning other than to offend Hua Xin together with her?
This was because Jiang Yuning would then definitely think that Hua Xin was deliberately finding fault with An Yiqing because she wanted to be closer to Jiang Yuning.
This could be the reason why An Yiqing had deliberately stood in Hua Xin&x2019;s way.
Would his assumption be right?
Brother Xuan suddenly felt a chill running down his spine because he could not imagine someone as young as An Yiqing having such deep and hidden motives behind her actions.
He must be thinking too much. He was definitely overthinking it.
Very soon, Lu Jingzhi brought Jiang Yuning out of Gu Pingsheng&x2019;s mansion.
At this time, Gu Pingsheng was still chatting with and entertaining some of his guests in the living room. He only waved at them both as he instructed Lu Jingzhi, &x201C;Make sure to send Yuning home safely.&x201D;
Both of them exited the living room in a low-key manner but at this time, An Yiqing suddenly appeared out of nowhere as she grabbed hold of Jiang Yuning&x2019;s arm and begged her for her personal contact information. &x201C;Sister Yuning, please give it to me. Please give me your cell phone number.&x201D;
Jiang Yuning glanced at Lu Jingzhi for a few seconds before she finally gave in. She wrote her cell phone number down and handed it to An Yiqing.
&x201C;Sister Yuning, I really like you so much!&x201D;
Jiang Yuning could not help but smile as soon as she heard An Yiqing&x2019;s words. She looked at An Yiqing before she said, &x201C;Good luck! Do your best.&x201D;
At this moment, Lu Jingzhi suddenly lowered his head and leaned towards Jiang Yuning as he whispered in her ear, &x201C;How many love rivals do you want me to have?&x201D;
