&x201C;Then, please treat me to a good show,&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied spontaneously.
First of all, the relationship between Hua Xin and Mr. Gao cannot be revealed to the public. After all, no matter what it was, Wen Tong had to retain her own image and reputation.
Secondly, if their relationship was made public, it would not be a punishment for Hua Xin because every third party in any relationship would definitely hope for their secret affair to be made known to the public.
&x201C;So, what kind of show do you want to watch?&x201D;
Jiang Yuning said as she revealed a sly smile like a cunning little fox.
After coming out from the restaurant, Vera followed behind Jiang Yuning before she asked, &x201C;So, what were you talking about with Wen Tong earlier?&x201D;
&x201C;Wen Tong invited me over to the Gao family mansion tomorrow morning. She will also make sure that Hua Xin comes over too,&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied immediately. &x201C;What do you think Hua Xin will feel when she is abused and bullied by her gold sponsor&x2019;s wife in front of an outsider?&x201D;
Vera nodded her head immediately after listening to Jiang Yuning&x2019;s words. &x201C;Well, Hua Xin has always looked down on you. I bet that she would never have expected you to be able to sit down and enjoy a meal together with Wen Tong at the same dining table. She will definitely feel extremely uncomfortable tomorrow! You don&x2019;t have to worry at all.&x201D;
&x201C;Wen Tong needs to maintain her own reputation and we need to give Uncle some face too. After all, Hua Xin is still an actress under Guangying Media. We cannot make too big of a scene. Therefore, we can only deal with that woman behind the scenes&x2026;&x201D;
Vera did not say anything but she merely made a thumbs up gesture at Jiang Yuning. &x201C;Yuning, you are really cruel&x2026;&x201D;
&x201C;Well, that is the only treatment that woman deserves to receive from me. Let&x2019;s wait to watch a good show tomorrow&x2026;&x201D;
Vera felt that Jiang Yuning was indeed a very interesting person. This was because Jiang Yuning had taught her that there was a good and bad side to everyone.
In front of good people, Jiang Yuning was an angel.
However, whenever she faced bad people, Jiang Yuning could transform into a demon in a blink of an eye.
In front of the second young master Lu, Jiang Yuning was a full-blown fool for love.
In front of Vera, Jiang Yuning proved to be a good friend and reliable sister.
Although Jiang Yuning had many different faces, this did not change her personality and her heart at all.
&x201C;Will you be accompanying me to the shooting range?&x201D; Jiang Yuning suddenly asked. It was late in the afternoon and almost time for her to make a trip there.
&x201C;Uh&x2026;&x201D; Vera stammered. &x201C;I don&x2019;t really feel like going.&x201D;
&x201C;Okay, you paused for a moment. That means you want to come along. Let&x2019;s go,&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied as she grabbed hold of Vera&x2019;s hand. &x201C;Let&x2019;s head there now.&x201D;
&x201C;I&x2026;I haven&x2019;t decided what to do yet. Wouldn&x2019;t it be awkward when we face one another?&x201D;
Jiang Yuning could not help herself from laughing out loud when she heard Vera&x2019;s words. &x201C;Did I say that Xiao Chennan would be there today? Moreover, didn&x2019;t you say that you do not care about him at all?&x201D;
&x201C;This is all your fault! As a girl, isn&x2019;t it normal for me to feel some sort of psychological burden after finding out that someone has a crush on me?&x201D;
&x201C;Oh! You actually remember your own gender? I thought you were the coolest person on earth.&x201D;
Both of them continued bickering throughout the entire journey to the shooting range but as soon as Vera thought about the possibility of her bumping into Xiao Chennan, her heart stated thumping again. However, much to her surprise, Xiao Chennan did not turn up at the shooting range today.
After Jiang Yuning was almost done with her bullets, she looked at the expression on Vera&x2019;s face before she said, &x201C;Feeling upset?&x201D;
&x201C;Who&x2019;s upset?&x201D; Vera retaliated immediately. Deep inside, Vera really wanted to find out if Xiao Chennan was really interested in her.
&x201C;The film emperor has something on his schedule today. Didn&x2019;t you check on his schedule?&x201D; Jiang Yuning asked as she laughed.
&x201C;Why are you talking so much today?&x201D; Vera asked as she glared at Jiang Yuning.
At this time, Vera suddenly received a text message on her cell phone.
&x201C;I have something on my schedule today. I will go to the shooting range tomorrow.&x201D;
After reading the text message, Vera started blushing immediately. Jiang Yuning was a traitor!
Should she reply him?
Or should she ignore his message?
The most important thing was the fact that Xiao Chennan was updating her on his schedule. What had it got to do with her?
Vera held onto her cell phone for a long time as she struggled internally before she finally replied with one word: &x201C;Oh.&x201D;
&x201C;Do you know who I am now?&x201D;
&x201C;Will I see you tomorrow?&x201D;
&x201C;I am not sure. I might be busy.&x201D; After replying his text message, Vera turned off her cell phone immediately.
After watching Vera&x2019;s reaction, Jiang Yuning quickly leaned against Vera as she whispered, &x201C;You really demonstrate the phrase that a woman always speaks the opposite of what she feels. Although you say that you are not interested, it seems as though you are interested indeed.&x201D;
Vera was speechless. How could she remain indifferent or emotionless when she had just discovered that a good and handsome man had a crush on her?
An outsider would not be able to understand the fear, shyness, and excitement that came all at once.
&x201C;Just tell him that you will be seeing him.&x201D;
&x201C;Ahem. I am really very busy tomorrow. I have to meet up with the client to talk about your new endorsement and after that, I have to get ready to send you off to the set for the recording of the next two issues of
&x201C;Alright then. Go&x2026;go. Anyway, I wouldn&x2019;t know even if you meet up with the film emperor in private.&x201D; Jiang Yuning teased Vera before she put down her pistol as she was done with her training for the day.
Vera opened her mouth as she wanted to say something to defend herself, but the more she thought about, the more she felt that it was stupid and unnecessary for her to try and explain herself.
Wouldn&x2019;t it be more suspicious if she was so defensive?
When Jiang Yuning saw Vera&x2019;s reaction, she suddenly remembered what it felt like when she was still secretly in love with Lu Jingzhi in the past. Her mood was always very uncertain and it could change in an instant because of him.
&x201C;Alright, let&x2019;s stop talking about that. I will pick you up early tomorrow morning before I drop you off at the Gao family mansion.&x201D;
After that, Vera walked away from Jiang Yuning in her high heels.
Jiang Yuning could not help but sighed when she looked at Vera&x2019;s back. &x201C;I have my own lover waiting for me at home but I can&x2019;t help but feel envious when I see this ambiguous relationship between both of them.&x201D;
This was because there had never been an ambiguous period between Lu Jingzhi and Jiang Yuning.
Both of them had always had a crush on one another, but it was nothing like Vera&x2019;s current situation.
Well, perhaps she should tease Lu Jingzhi about this matter tonight before she left to join the crew tomorrow?
Jiang Yuning continued thinking about this and when Lu Jingzhi finally came home later that night, Jiang Yuning quickly sat on his lap as she spoke to him in a coquettish manner. &x201C;Second brother&x2026;&x201D;
&x201C;What are you up to this time?&x201D; Lu Jingzhi asked as he ran his fingers through her hair.
&x201C;I am envious that other people have some ambiguous period in their relationship but we do not have that. I want to experience that with you.&x201D;
Lu Jingzhi was speechless.
We are already married, little descendant.
&x201C;Why don&x2019;t you put on an act with me now?&x201D;
&x201C;How do you want me to act?&x201D;
&x201C;We can pretend that we have finally met each other again after being apart for five years. I will go to the Lu family mansion as a guest,&x201D; Jiang Yuning set out the plot immediately. &x201C;Neither of us have confessed our feelings yet and we do not know how the other feels. However, we can just use our actions to show how much we have missed and care about one another.&x201D;
Was she serious about acting?
&x201C;Can we not do this?&x201D; Lu Jingzhi asked.
&x201C;I just want to experience what it feels like&x2026;&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied. &x201C;Second brother&x2026;&x201D;
&x201C;We do not have anyone else here right now. How are we going to act?&x201D;
&x201C;We can just pretend that everyone is here. Can&x2019;t we do that?&x201D;
Lu Jingzhi knew that there was no other way out of this because Jiang Yuning really wanted to do this. Therefore, he could only change out of his casual home clothes and back into his suit and stepped out of the villa.
Five years ago? What would it have been like&x2026;if they had met five years ago?
As soon as he thought about this, Lu Jingzhi opened the front door. As soon as he stepped into the house, he saw Jiang Yuning sitting on the sofa. He looked surprised and there was also some sort of alienation in his expression. He did not greet Jiang Yuning but he started walking up the stairs directly as he headed to his bedroom. At this time, Jiang Yuning suddenly spoke to him. &x201C;Second brother Lu, it has been such a long time since we last met.&x201D;
Lu Jingzhi did not turn around but simply replied in a calm manner. &x201C;Yes, it has been a long time indeed.&x201D;
&x201C;Grandpa Lu said that we can start eating dinner soon&x2026;&x201D;
&x201C;I have already eaten,&x201D; Lu Jingzhi replied coldly.
&x201C;Ah? But I have prepared some of the dishes tonight, although it might not be that delicious&x2026;&x201D;
After listening to Jiang Yuning&x2019;s words, Lu Jingzhi turned around and glanced at Jiang Yuning before he replied, &x201C;I will come downstairs after changing out of my work clothes.&x201D;
