&x201C;Are you jealous of her too?&x201D; Jiang Yuning asked as her ears reddened and she started blushing immediately.
From some of the guests&x2019; perspective, Lu Jingzhi and Jiang Yuning&x2019;s faces seemed to be too close together from this angle and this made many of the artistes present exclaim in surprise. Weren&x2019;t they being too intimate?
This kind of intimacy made many of the female artistes there envious because although they were already used to seeing and being around the handsome male artistes in the entertainment circle, it was not every day that they could see someone of Lu Jingzhi&x2019;s caliber face-to-face. If they were not from the same family background as Jiang Yuning, they could only just daydream about ever getting close to Lu Jingzhi.
&x201C;Who knows if Lu Jingzhi, the heir of the Lu family, is actually still single or available?&x201D; a female artiste dressed in a silver dress suddenly asked her companions.
&x201C;How would ordinary people like us know the answer to that question? Anyway, whether Lu Jingzhi is single or otherwise would not make any difference. After all, the only person who would be able to be on such close terms with Lu Jingzhi now is probably Jiang Yuning because they were childhood friends. What is the point of being envious? Moreover, isn&x2019;t the Jiang family rich again now?&x201D; her companion replied immediately.
&x201C;So what if she is rich again? This does not change the fact that she is still an artiste in the messed up and complicated entertainment industry. Jiang Yuning could probably be Lu Jingzhi&x2019;s playmate, sister, or even his lover, but it would definitely be impossible for her to ever become his wife,&x201D; another person chimed in to join the conversation at this time.
&x201C;Why?&x201D; the actress in the silver dress asked again.
&x201C;Do you think that the prestigious Lu family would actually accept a high school graduate who is in the entertainment industry as their daughter-in-law? Huo Yuxi is a completely different case because there is absolutely no comparison between Lu Zongye and Lu Jingzhi at all! Moreover, Lu Jingzhi is the one and only heir of the Lu family.&x201D;
Therefore, the highlight of the dinner hosted by Guangying Media turned out to be the discussions related to the relationship between Jiang Yuning and Lu Jingzhi.
Since Jiang Yuning had such a close relationship with Lu Jingzhi, it was no wonder why Gu Pingsheng had chosen to stand by Jiang Yuning even though he might have offended Hua Xin in the process.
In fact, Gu Pingsheng only chose to support Jiang Yuning because he wanted to defend and protect his own family. Since that girl was already legally married to Lu Jingzhi, then Jiang Yuning was now also part of his family and he would never allow any outsiders to bully her so casually.
On the way back to the villa, Lu Jingzhi and Jiang Yuning were both sitting in the back seat while Vera was sitting beside the driver. When Vera thought about the funny questions that the guests at the banquet had asked her earlier, she quickly turned around to gossip with Jiang Yuning. &x201C;Did you know? Since second young master Lu arrived at the banquet, so many people walked up to me to ask me about the nature of your relationship with second young master Lu. I also heard many people sneering and making fun of you behind your back. They said that it would definitely be impossible for you to ever marry into the Lu family in this lifetime. Alas, a woman&x2019;s jealousy is really a scary thing. Once you reveal your relationship with the second young master Lu to the public, I believe these people would probably faint from the shock.&x201D;
&x201C;My second brother belongs to me alone. I will not publicize my relationship with him just because of what they said,&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied immediately.
&x201C;But&x2026;&x201D; Vera observed Lu Jingzhi&x2019;s reaction before she carefully added, &x201C;There were also a few male actors&x2026;who came up to me to ask for your personal contact information. Of course, I gave all of them my own contact number&x2026;&x201D;
Lu Jingzhi glanced at Vera with an indifferent expression on his face. He was not angry.
Jiang Yuning laughed as she praised Vera, &x201C;You are really witty.&x201D;
&x201C;Well, there are a few of them who are not that bad&x2026;&x201D;
&x201C;Vera, you are a top agent in your field. You should not be so easily distracted by these sugar-coated distractions&x2026;&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied. After observing Lu Jingzhi&x2019;s reaction, Jiang Yuning pointed a finger at Vera before she added, &x201C;And, can you afford to do so?&x201D;
&x201C;Sigh. All I care about is making more money! Although, it wouldn&x2019;t hurt for me to be able to find some sweet love and romance occasionally&x2026;&x201D;
Jiang Yuning quickly reached out her hand to cover Vera&x2019;s mouth. &x201C;Promise me that you will not try and destroy those poor boys&x2026;&x201D;
&x201C;I am not interested in any of those actors! The production team of
&x201C;One last thing. I feel that Hua Xin seems to hate An Yiqing now because she thinks that An Yiqing is on our side. Do you want me to watch over her on your behalf?&x201D; Vera asked. &x201C;It does not seem good to implicate innocent people in this matter.&x201D;
&x201C;It is up to you.&x201D;
As both of them continued chatting, the black car had already entered the gates of the Royal Dragon Villa. After sending both Lu Jingzhi and Jiang Yuning home, Vera asked the driver to drop her off at the company&x2019;s headquarters.
Halfway through the journey, Vera was sorting through her social media profile when she realized that a stranger had just sent her a friend request.
Who was that?
Vera was afraid that it could be someone important that she did not know, and thus, she subsequently approved the friend request. However, after adding that stranger into her friends list, she did not do anything else.
After entering the house, Lu Jingzhi pinned Jiang Yuning against the wall as he rubbed his nose against hers. &x201C;How many male celebrities have tried going after you&x2026;in the past five years?&x201D;
Jiang Yuning was a little surprised because she did not expect to hear this question from Lu Jingzhi. &x201C;Second brother, aren&x2019;t you taking the score too far back?&x201D;
&x201C;I just want to know which one of them&x2026;is that bold.&x201D;
&x201C;Don&x2019;t listen to whatever Vera had just said!&x201D;
&x201C;Hmm&x2026;&x201D; Lu Jingzhi was still skeptical.
&x201C;Well, even if there had been some guys who wanted to befriend me and get to know me better, I did not accept any of them anyway. Otherwise, why else would I have suffered and struggled so much in the last five years?&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied frankly. &x201C;Although part of my suffering was because Lu Zongye had bullied me and made life difficult for me, the real reason behind my struggle was because you are the only one in my heart all along. In the past five years, the one thing that I am really proud of is the fact that I had not conformed to the lifestyle that most of the people succumb to when they are involved in the entertainment circle. I remained true to myself.&x201D;
Lu Jingzhi listened to Jiang Yuning&x2019;s words carefully before he patted her gently on her head. &x201C;There are so many good-looking men in the entertainment industry. Are you sure that none of them could replace me?&x201D;
&x201C;Of course not! Are you kidding?&x201D; Jiang Yuning retorted immediately. &x201C;And I also had very high defences against all the other men who tried to get closer to me because of Lu Zongye. You are the only one&x2026;&x201D;
Just a phone call from him and she accepted his invitation to live with him immediately.
Other than him, there was no one else whom she wanted.
&x201C;Second brother&x2026;I am already married to you. I know how to keep my distance from all the other men.&x201D;
&x201C;I am not worried about that&x2026;&x201D; Lu Jingzhi trusted Jiang Yuning with all of his heart. &x201C;But&x2026;when will you finally be willing to publicize our relationship?&x201D;
&x201C;Can you please give me a little more time to prepare myself?&x201D; Jiang Yuning asked as she raised her hand to make a little hand gesture at Lu Jingzhi. &x201C;Is that okay?&x201D;
&x201C;So you want to continue keeping our relationship underground?&x201D;
&x201C;Just bear with me a little longer&x2026;&x201D;
Under the dim light, Lu Jingzhi stared at Jiang Yuning and after a short while, he finally lowered his head as he lifted Jiang Yuning&x2019;s chin up to kiss her soft and moist lips. &x201C;If you want a man to do something for you, then you have to show the corresponding attitude. According to the nature of the matter, you will then have to&x2026;pay your dues.&x201D;
On the other hand, Xiao Chennan was sitting on the sofa in his living room and at this time, he was looking at his cell phone as he was searching through Vera&x2019;s circle of friends.
He could tell that Vera was a really dedicated and responsible agent because all of the content that she had posted on her social media account was related to Jiang Yuning.
She did not even post a single picture of herself online.
This was the reason why Xiao Chennan did not have any excuse to get closer to Vera. In fact, it was not difficult for him to obtain Vera&x2019;s contact information. However, he did not know how to approach her.
So, Xiao Chennan sent his assistant out to inquire and find out about Jiang Yuning&x2019;s itinerary. This was how he knew that Jiang Yuning would always go to the shooting range in the evening to practice her marksmanship. In this case, would Vera be there too?
