Hua Xin could not help but feel afraid after she heard Jiang Yuning&x2019;s words, especially because Jiang Yuning had a confident look on her face.
If she was merely going against Wen Tong alone, there would probably still be room for her to fight back. However, now that the person supporting Jiang Yuning was none other than Lu Jingzhi, Hua Xin knew that there was no longer any hope. If she continued going against Jiang Yuning, then she would probably disappear from Luo City or this world entirely!
Because that was none other than Lu Jingzhi.
It was the Lu family!
&x201C;I should have discovered this fact earlier&x2026;during the dinner hosted by Guangying Media. I should have known that the relationship you share with the Lu family is not that simple. The only reason why the second young master of the Lu family attended the banquet that night&x2026;was because of you.&x201D;
&x201C;So, you finally understand what is going on now?&x201D; Jiang Yuning chuckled. &x201C;I did not want to use my husband&x2019;s identity to scare or suppress anyone, especially you, since I do not think that you deserve it at all. However, I hope you finally realize that I am not afraid of you. The only reason I am not attacking you head-on is because I do not want to cause Uncle and Guangying Media any unnecessary trouble. After all, all of us have our reputations to maintain. I can treat this scene that we have just witnessed today as payback for you asking me to take off my high heels and dance for you during the banquet dinner. In future, we do not owe each other anything anymore. However, if you want to continue finding fault with me&x2026;&x201D;
At this time, as a third party and a nobody, Hua Xin looked like a clown in front of the other two legitimate wives.
&x201C;I want to know the reason why you are not revealing your identity as Lu Jingzhi&x2019;s wife to the public.&x201D;
&x201C;Because my husband is the love of my life and not a tool that I am going to use for my own benefits or just to advance my career. Of course, my identity as Mrs. Lu would definitely give me a lot of advantages and perks, but I can only be myself and build up my own career as Jiang Yuning.&x201D;
After listening to Jiang Yuning&x2019;s words, Hua Xin could only laugh in a self-deprecating manner.
Hua Xin felt her face flushing. At this instant, it felt as though she was receiving a hundred slaps directly to the face.
&x201C;I admit it. I admit that I am wrong. So, can both of you just let me go already?&x201D;
&x201C;Remember to open up your eyes in future so that you do not offend the wrong person again,&x201D; Wen Tong replied as she glared coldly at Hua Xin. &x201C;Remember your own status and where you stand. Learn what to say and do, and what you should not say and do in future. That mister over there, do you have anything else that you want to add on?&x201D; Wen Tong asked as she turned around and looked in her husband&x2019;s direction.
Gao Mengjin continued drinking his coffee before he shook his head and said, &x201C;No, I have nothing to say.&x201D;
Hua Xin clenched her fists tightly together. She had spent so many years getting entangled with this man and now, it had finally come to an end.
Initially, she was delusional and would often dream about assuming the identity of Mrs. Gao one day. However, in the end, it turned out that she was nothing more than a clown who had been entertaining all of them all this while. In front of his wife, she was nothing more than an insignificant ant.
Wen Tong was once again very satisfied with Gao Mengjin&x2019;s performance and response. After that, Wen Tong immediately instructed the butler, &x201C;Please see our guest out.&x201D;
Hua Xin seemed to have lost her soul and she must have been in shock because she did not even know how or when she left the Gao family mansion.
After Hua Xin&x2019;s departure, the atmosphere in the living room of the Gao family mansion became very quiet. Jiang Yuning took this opportunity to give Wen Tong a thumbs up gesture. &x201C;Well played!&x201D;
&x201C;You were pretty impressive too,&x201D; Wen Tong replied as she raised her brow at Jiang Yuning.
Wen Tong initially assumed that the only reason Lu Jingzhi and Jiang Yuning were married was because of the friendship they had shared ever since they were young, or perhaps because Jiang Yuning was young and easy to handle, as she would definitely listen and obey him completely.
However, after the incident involving Hua Xin, Wen Tong immediately knew.
Jiang Yuning was not as simple as she looked. She was not someone who would stand by and get bullied without fighting back for herself.
She could reason with you nicely with a smile on her face, but she could also tell you the rules in an extremely stern manner.
&x201C;Give me a call whenever you need my help&x2026;but remember that you told me you will not put me in a tough spot&x2026;&x201D; Jiang Yuning said as she smiled at Wen Tong. &x201C;I am just a small artiste who is trying to regain her fame in the entertainment industry. Please don&x2019;t make me a blacklisted artiste again&x2026;&x201D;
&x201C;I will tell you what I need when I think of it.&x201D;
&x201C;Alright then! Okay, I have to leave now because I have to join the filming crew later in the afternoon. Thank you for the scrumptious breakfast.&x201D;
After that, Wen Tong walked Jiang Yuning and Vera to their car before she returned to the mansion. At this time, she glanced at Gao Mengjin, who was still sitting at the dining table, before she said, &x201C;Do not look for anyone from the entertainment industry in future. They are all up to no good. I am too lazy to have to clean up any more messes like this in future.&x201D;
&x201C;Why&x2026;why don&x2019;t you just ask me to stop looking for any other women in future?&x201D; Gao Mengjin asked Wen Tong as he looked at her with a meaningful and deep expression in his eyes.
&x201C;Why are you being so polite with me? I will be very happy if you bring home an illegitimate child one day.&x201D; After that, Wen Tong tightened the shawl around her body before she returned to her bedroom.
On the other side, during the drive back to the Royal Dragon Villa.
Although Vera was very happy after watching the scene where Jiang Yuning and Wen Tong dealt with and taught Hua Xin a lesson, Vera was even more curious about the relationship between Gao Mengjin and Wen Tong.
&x201C;Yuning, don&x2019;t you think that the relationship between the couple is very interesting? How can Wen Tong be so calm and composed when her husband has so many women outside of their marriage?&x201D; Vera asked, full of desire to gossip.
&x201C;Why are you so interested in other people&x2019;s lives? What about yourself? Has the film emperor not taken the initiative to ask you out yet?&x201D;
Vera could not stop herself from blushing whenever Jiang Yuning mentioned Xiao Chennan. &x201C;He asked me to meet up with him today but I told him that I would be busy because I am going to send you to join the crew.&x201D;
&x201C;Don&x2019;t turn him down. The young paparazzo can drive me. You can go and meet up with him!&x201D;
&x201C;But I have already turned him down. Moreover, I do not want to accept his invitation so easily. Do you think it is really so easy to go after me?&x201D; Vera replied as she shook her head. &x201C;Do you think that I am like you? As soon as Second Young Master Lu snaps his finger, you would always go running to his side.&x201D;
&x201C;Well, we are talking about you right now, so please do not divert the attention to me instead. The reason why I threw myself at Second Brother as soon as he showed some interest in me was because I had always had a crush on him. He is the essence of my soul. What else could I have done?&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied as she glared at Vera. As soon as they started talking about Lu Jingzhi, Jiang Yuning took out her cell phone before she sent a text message to Lu Jingzhi: &x201C;Second Brother, when did you take my cell phone? You even delivered my cell phone to me at the perfect time&x2026;&x201D;
&x201C;Don&x2019;t you like me having your back?&x201D;
&x201C;Second Brother, you really are a changed man,&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied as she thought about how much Lu Jingzhi had changed. Where was the Lu Jingzhi that she knew?
&x201C;How did I change?&x201D;
&x201C;You have become much more attractive. I love it.&x201D;
The twenty-eight year old man could not help but smile as soon as he read that text message but the expression on his face quickly turned serious in a matter of seconds. &x201C;I will wait for you to come home.&x201D;
Jiang Yuning had a sweet expression on her face as she smiled and held her cell phone to her chest.
Vera looked at Jiang Yuning in disdain. Was this really a married woman?
Jiang Yuning did not seem to respect the rules of marriage at all. This was because Jiang Yuning and Second Young Master Lu never quarrelled at all!
Both of them finally arrived at the Royal Dragon Villa and at this time, Vera suddenly received a phone call from the production team. The production team requested for Jiang Yuning to pack her own luggage, with an additional requirement of the artistes&x2019; agents having to come along and participate in the recording this time.
&x201C;What is wrong with the production team? How could they inform us on such short notice?&x201D; Vera started complaining and at this time, she was just about to check her schedule when she received a phone call from Shen Yichen.
&x201C;Did you receive a phone call from the production team of
&x201C;Yes. Director Shen. What the hell is going on?&x201D; Vera replied in a frustrated manner.
&x201C;All the agents are supposed to participate in the recording this time. Just go along with the arrangement for now. I will handle your schedule for you for the time being.&x201D;
&x201C;Alright then,&x201D; Vera replied unhappily. After all, she had already made many plans and appointments and now, all of her plans would be disrupted because of this. &x201C;What is the production team up to this time? If there are any monsters like the last time, I will not participate at all&x2026;&x201D;
&x201C;Who knows?&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied as she shrugged.
&x201C;This is all your fault. The production team must not have any more ideas because they are so tortured by you!&x201D;
Jiang Yuning frowned immediately. &x201C;Do you really think that they would try so hard to get their revenge just because of their hairlines?&x201D;
&x201C;Why not? I know that if my hairline recedes because of you, I would definitely strangle you to death!&x201D; Vera replied as she glared at Jiang Yuning.
