That night, An Yiqing and her agent gave Hua Xin a lot of face as they brought many gifts to her residence.
Hua Xin knew that Jiang Yuning had not interfered or tried to help An Yiqing in any way ever since she started messing with her and when she saw that An Yiqing had already caved in and was apologizing to her, she gave her a word of advice. &x201C;You are still very young and fresh in the entertainment industry, unlike Jiang Yuning who is already considered a senior in the entertainment circle. You chose to stand by Jiang Yuning&x2019;s side in good faith, but did Jiang Yuning recognize or acknowledge what you did for her?&x201D;
&x201C;Sister Hua Xin, I know that you are a very magnanimous person. Please be gracious and forgive me,&x201D; An Yiqing apologized as she begged Hua Xin in a pitiful manner.
&x201C;Will you still help Jiang Yuning in future?&x201D;
An Yiqing shook her head immediately.
Hua Xin was finally satisfied and appeased after seeing this. &x201C;Young girl, I forgive you and I will not mess with you anymore. However, I will not return you any of the resources that I have already snatched away from you. After all, I obtained them based on my own abilities.&x201D;
&x201C;No, no. Sister Hua Xin, you do not have to return any resources to me. As long as you are more magnanimous and gracious towards me in future, I will be extremely grateful.&x201D;
&x201C;Good girl&x2026;How great would it be if Jiang Yuning was as sensible as you? However, to tell you the truth, it is not entirely impossible to hinder Jiang Yuning&x2019;s progress anyway. If I intend to do something to ruin this episode of , will you secretly tell Jiang Yuning?&x201D; Hua Xin asked An Yiqing as she looked at her with her arms crossed in front of her chest.
An Yiqing shook her head immediately.
&x201C;No, Sister Hua Xin. I really will not betray you.&x201D;
&x201C;Alright then, I look forward to your performance.&x201D;
An Yiqing did not stay in Hua Xin&x2019;s residence for too long because the young girl was shocked and afraid of Hua Xin after realizing first hand what she was capable of. She did not expect Hua Xin to be such a vindictive person. She may have plotted something minor to gain Jiang Yuning&x2019;s trust in the first place, but in comparison to Hua Xin&x2019;s twists and turns, what she did was nothing. She would never be able to outwit someone like Hua Xin.
Late that night, the interior of the Royal Dragon Villa was still brightly lit.
Jiang Yuning was sitting in the living room as she was writing the lyrics for the song that she writing for Lu Jingzhi. It wasn&x2019;t until it turned nine o&x2019;clock at night that her man finally came home, with the sweet fragrance of wine all over him. She quickly stood up and hurried over to her second brother.
&x201C;Were you out entertaining someone?&x201D;
&x201C;I drank a little before I went back to the Lu family mansion,&x201D; Lu Jingzhi replied as he unbuttoned his shirt. &x201C;I went to see second uncle off before he leaves to go abroad.&x201D;
&x201C;How is Sister Jingshu doing right now?&x201D;
&x201C;She is already accustomed to the life of the Lu family now. You don&x2019;t need to worry about her. You can always drop by the Lu family mansion to visit her whenever you want to. I have already informed the butler to let you in if you are there,&x201D; Lu Jingzhi replied as he rested his body against Jiang Yuning. &x201C;Yuning.&x201D;
&x201C;Grandpa wants me to give him a grandson before I turn thirty. So, you still have more than a year to do whatever you want to do before we have to settle down and have a child. Don&x2019;t worry so much. I will bring you to meet him when that time comes. Don&x2019;t get so sensitive whenever I mention the Lu family&x2026;that will also be your home sooner or later.&x201D;
&x201C;I know, second brother. You are so heavy,&x201D; Jiang Yuning exclaimed. She wondered how her small shoulders could actually bear the weight of such a big and well-built man.
&x201C;I think I might have drunk a little too much tonight,&x201D; Lu Jingzhi said as he stood up and walked upstairs all by himself.
Even though he was drunk after drinking too much, Lu Jingzhi was not abusive, and he did not throw an alcoholic tantrum nor did he speak any gibberish at all. He was still lying in bed as he slept with a peaceful expression on his face.
Jiang Yuning followed Lu Jingzhi into the bedroom before she took off his shoes and socks for him. After that, she quickly got a wet towel to wipe Lu Jingzhi&x2019;s face and body for him because she knew that he was obsessed with cleanliness.
At this time, Lu Jingzhi suddenly woke up from his sleep as he grabbed Jiang Yuning&x2019;s wrist. After glancing at Jiang Yuning, he looked relieved as he closed his eyes and continued sleeping because he was already certain that the person touching him was none other than Jiang Yuning.
Jiang Yuning could not help but laugh as she sat beside him.
She could not believe that this man was still so defensive and alert even at a time like this.
Subsequently, Jiang Yuning continued wiping Lu Jingzhi&x2019;s body and she was eventually wiping his hands for him. At this time, Jiang Yuning suddenly realized that she had not observed his hands carefully before this. Lu Jingzhi&x2019;s fingers were very slender and when she looked at his fingers, she felt as though something was missing because it was too empty.
After they got married, Lu Jingzhi did not even have the chance to wear a wedding ring because of Jiang Yuning&x2019;s status as a celebrity.
As she thought about this, Jiang Yuning quickly wiped Lu Jingzhi&x2019;s body before she changed him out of his clothes into a fresh pair of pyjamas. After she was done cleaning him up, she turned off the bedroom lights before she took out her cell phone and headed to the living room to make a phone call to Vera.
At this time, Lu Jingzhi who had been fast asleep all along suddenly opened his eyes and smiled as he turned around to change into a more comfortable posture so that he could continue sleeping.
&x201C;Hello, Vera. Can you help me to find out where I can obtain really nice wedding rings?&x201D; Jiang Yuning asked Vera as she sat on the sofa in the living room.
&x201C;Wedding rings? But&x2026;you can&x2019;t be wearing one&x2026;&x201D;
&x201C;I might not be able to wear it but second brother can. It would be better if you can find me a wedding ring where both the rings are intertwined as one. That way, second brother can wear both of the rings now and I will ask him for my ring after we publicize our relationship in future.&x201D;
This person was once again trying to make her jealous in the middle of the night.
&x201C;Alright then, I will check it out for you tomorrow,&x201D; Vera replied, feeling a little emotional.
Jiang Yuning was satisfied after hanging up the phone will Vera and she continued sitting in the living room as she studied her script.
At this time, Vera was sitting on her sofa at home and she was feeling pretty distressed.
She looked at her cell phone and she finally logged into her social media profile after being inactive for a few days. However, the few messages that Xiao Chennan had posted previously were already at the bottom of the list since a few days had already passed by.
The next day was already a Friday and the third issue of was to be aired at half past seven that night.
Everyone who already knew of the contents in this issue recognized that Jiang Yuning would definitely garner a lot of attention and win over the hearts of many passers-by through this episode but at this time, Hua Xin was silently brewing her plan for revenge to take Jiang Yuning down.
The previous two issues of had been divided into four episodes and these episodes had already been aired every week for a month.
There were nine guests in this variety show but at the end of the day, it seemed as though the focus of the program was on Jiang Yuning alone. Did the other eight participants&x2026;really have nothing to say about this? The expert group and the amateur group may not care about showtime or popularity, but what about the other two celebrities in the show?
Were Jin Mingchen&x2019;s fans really so willing to allow their idol to be suppressed and dominated by Jiang Yuning?
In fact, whether Jin Mingchen&x2019;s fans were willing or not, all Hua Xin had to do was to create countless fake accounts and to pretend to be Jin Mingchen&x2019;s fans who were posting fake negative reviews and messages online. Then, she only needed to do the same thing using Qi Mo&x2019;s fans as a cover. After that, she would use the fake accounts to echo one another and try to create a negative impression that Jiang Yuning was stealing all the attention from Jin Mingchen and Qi Mo for herself. Would the cast of continue to be so harmonious with one another then?
As long as Jiang Yuning no longer had to generate all this hype and attention for her, her popularity would definitely decrease. Would she be able to remain this arrogant then?
Hua Xin planned her strategy very well because she placed Jin Mingchen as her very first target.
Well, everything depended on Jin Mingchen&x2019;s performance in this issue of that would be aired tonight. What kind of trouble would he be causing this time?
Later that Friday afternoon, Jiang Yuning went to the shooting range to practice her shooting skills and as usual, Vera was there to accompany her.
After they had both bumped into Xiao Chennan at the shooting range not long ago, Vera was always worried that Xiao Chennan would look for another opportunity to privately approach and contact Jiang Yuning out of the blue. Therefore, Vera would try her best to make time to accompany and be around Jiang Yuning whenever she could.
In fact, Jiang Yuning had already bumped into Xiao Chennan a couple of times when Vera was not around but each time, they would just greet one another and there would not be any further conversation after that. That was the reason why Jiang Yuning was certain that Xiao Chennan was not interested in her at all.
Jiang Yuning could not understand why Vera was so worried.
This time, when Vera left Jiang Yuning for a split second to go to the bathroom, Xiao Chennan&x2019;s assistant hurried over to Jiang Yuning because Xiao Chennan was also not around at that time. &x201C;Sister Yuning, there is something&x2026;that I want to ask you to help me with, but I don&x2019;t know if it would be an inconvenience to you&x2026;&x201D;
