Chapter 297: Annoy that Scumbag
&x201C;Alright then. I can never win in an argument with you. Anyway, we will have to travel to the neighboring city for the promotional event for Cai Ling tomorrow. Remember to get up earlier tomorrow.&x201D;
&x201C;I got it.&x201D;
The Ginger Candies had already heard about Jiang Yuning&x2019;s travel plans and they were all going to the airport to send her off.
In fact, Jiang Yuning rarely had the opportunity to travel out of state for work and therefore, this was a good opportunity for her to meet up with and greet the Ginger Candies.
Later that evening, the interview that the reporter held with Jiang Yuning went viral on the Internet.
[Jiang Yuning is just pretending to be a humble person. Why is she so pretentious? Is she trying to trick everyone into thinking that she has a good personality?]
[Wow. What is wrong with the person who commented above? What Jiang Yuning meant is that she simply does not want the public and the media to place their focus on the celebrities and artistes. She wants people to pay attention to the people who were truly affected by the natural disaster, as well as the rescue team and firefighters who provided aid and relief during the disaster. Is that wrong?]
[I think that there is nothing wrong with Jiang Yuning&x2019;s attitude or character. She could have just rejected the interview in the first place.]
[I can tell that Jiang Yuning really does not like the media and reporters to constantly magnify the little things that the celebrities had done. Moreover, I think that she is being extremely sincere and she is only helping those in need because she really wants to do everything within her power and capability to help them.]
[Jiang Yuning has a really decent personality.]
[This is not the first time that Jiang Yuning has tried to shift the focus of the public&x2019;s attention to the true heroes of the natural disaster. Are these people who are constantly criticizing her blind?]
[Jiang Yuning had always been like this. I have recently re-acquainted with her and found out that her personality and character is still surprisingly positive despite being an artiste.]
Finally, the reporter who interviewed Jiang Yuning decided to step in and give a conclusion on this matter.
&x201C;It was not difficult at all to invite Miss Jiang Yuning to accept an interview. However, I was really surprised when I met up with this twenty-four-year-old. This is because she made two requests as soon as she saw me. First of all, she requested for me not to blow the matter out of proportion by writing an unnecessarily huge column about the role that the celebrities had played during the rescue and aid mission during the typhoon and flood. Secondly, she requested for me to reduce the number of questions that I had to three simple ones. During the short one or two hours that I spent with her, all that I could see was a sincere and pure soul. Therefore, I hope that everyone will not blacklist and criticize an artiste like Jiang Yuning, who not only has a good heart, but also a good personality. You will be surprised to find out that pure gold is never afraid of fire.&x201D;
In the end, when the interview was published, the article on the artistes was placed in a small column at the corner of the newspapers.
However, this gesture still meant a lot to the public.
This was because, what really mattered to everyone was not the length of the article or the size of the column. Instead, what mattered was what these people had actually done for the public.
Silence is golden.
Xiao Chennan, Qi Mo, and Jin Mingchen also benefited from Jiang Yuning&x2019;s high EQ. Even though they had not been personally interviewed, they similarly received countless praise from the public.
That night in the living room of the Gao family mansion.
Wen Luo was sitting directly across from Gao Mengjin when he made a phone call to Wen Tong. &x201C;Hello, Sister&x2026;&x201D;
&x201C;What&x2019;s up? I have just left the city and you are already in trouble?&x201D; Wen Tong asked from the other end of the line.
This was the person that Gao Mengjin thought of day and night.
However, at this time, Gao Mengjin did not even dare to breathe because he was afraid that Wen Tong would discover he was right beside Wen Luo.
&x201C;Isn&x2019;t it your birthday next week? I am hosting a birthday party for you. Make sure to give me face and come home to attend your party,&x201D; Wen Luo replied.
&x201C;Who put you up to this? Did Gao Mengjin ask you to do this?&x201D; Wen Tong guessed immediately.
&x201C;What has this got to do with him? Can&x2019;t I host a birthday party for my own sister? I think we should host the party at the Gao family mansion. I know of a few young and handsome guys that I can invite to the party. Let&x2019;s annoy that scumbag. What do you think about this idea?&x201D;
Wen Tong was silent for a short while before she finally answered, &x201C;I still think that you are too free and have nothing better to do.&x201D;
&x201C;I will tell you the truth now. I have found out about some things that Gao Mengjin is doing behind your back. I want to teach that scumbag a lesson. If you don&x2019;t give me the chance to get back at him, I will not feel at ease. If you really do not want me to host the birthday party for you, then I will have to think of another way to teach him a lesson then. How about that?&x201D;
Wen Luo decided to use threats to try and convince Wen Tong.
&x201C;Don&x2019;t act rashly. This is between me and him.&x201D;
&x201C;How is that reasonable? How can I sit by and watch idly while he bullies my sister? Sister, all the Gao family members are so heartless. Why haven&x2019;t you divorced him yet?&x201D;
Wen Tong was probably annoyed by Wen Luo at this point and she finally agreed, &x201C;Okay. I will give you face and come home next week. Alright?&x201D;
&x201C;That&x2019;s good, then. Why should the Wen family suffer like this? I will also invite Sister-in-Law to attend your birthday party so you can have some company that you will enjoy.&x201D;
&x201C;Alright then. Let&x2019;s do that,&x201D; Wen Tong agreed. &x201C;Try to keep it as simple as possible.&x201D;
&x201C;I know exactly what I should do.&x201D;
After that, Wen Luo hung up the phone before he made an okay gesture at Gao Mengjin.
&x201C;I have already tricked her into coming home next week. Everything else is up to you to prove yourself.&x201D;
&x201C;Thank you,&x201D; Gao Mengjin thanked Wen Luo in a sincere manner. &x201C;I will definitely cherish and treat your sister well in future.&x201D;
&x201C;Don&x2019;t make me any empty promises now. You should deal with the old demon in your house first, so that I know I can trust you.&x201D;
Perhaps Gao Mengjin really wanted to win Wen Luo&x2019;s trust. Therefore, he took out his cell phone from his pocket and called his mother immediately. &x201C;Mom.&x201D;
Gao Mengjin&x2019;s mother had not heard her own son addressing her as his mother for the past few years and she was extremely excited to hear his voice.
She knew that as mother and son, there would never be any overnight feud between both of them.
She knew that sooner or later, he son would finally understand that it was not worth being mad at her over that woman.
&x201C;It is Wen Tong&x2019;s birthday next week. You can come over with Dad for dinner.&x201D;
When Gao Mengjin&x2019;s mother heard that the reason her son had called was because of Wen Tong, she felt a little upset. Although she was very reluctant, she agreed to come for dinner. &x201C;I got it.&x201D; Anyway, she could take this opportunity to reprimand and teach Wen Tong a lesson. It had already been so many years and aside from that daughter that she was carrying, Wen Tong had never given birth to any child since. Gao Mengjin&x2019;s mother wanted a grandson.
As soon as he heard his mother&x2019;s reply, Gao Mengjin hung up the phone without even asking his mother how she was doing.
&x201C;Then you had better be prepared to put on a good act for Wen Tong.&x201D;
Gao Mengjin nodded in response.
He was doing this not solely for Wen Tong, but for himself as well.
If his mother had not been so cruel in the past, he would already have had a daughter with Wen Tong today.
She was both his and Wen Tong&x2019;s daughter, and it also hurt him badly when he lost his daughter. He suffered from nightmares for many years and every time he thought of his daughter, he would not be able to sleep at all.
How could he not love his own child?
Late at night in the Royal Dragon villa.
Jiang Yuning had already fallen asleep in the living room as she studied the whereabouts of the relics and antiques belonging to Lu Jingzhi&x2019;s mother. She did not even know when Lu Jingzhi came home.
Sister Liang was about to speak to Lu Jingzhi when he interrupted her by asking her to hush so that they would not awaken Jiang Yuning.
Lu Jingzhi removed his shoes before he walked behind his wife. He saw the relics and antiques belonging to his late mother displayed on the laptop screen.
He did not expect Jiang Yuning to still be so fixated on his mother&x2019;s belongings even after such a long time.
Lu Jingzhi sighed before he lifted Jiang Yuning from the sofa, carrying her in his arms as he headed to the bedroom.
If his mother was still alive and knew that Jiang Yuning was in trouble, she would not have sat still without doing anything.
Therefore, Lu Jingzhi had never regretted selling those relics and antiques. This was because he knew that his mother did not care about material objects at all.
Jiang Yuning would have been more important to her.
That little fool.
Jiang Yuning slept very soundly that night. When she woke up, she realized that she was already lying in bed right next to Lu Jingzhi.
Jiang Yuning immediately thought of the laptop that she had not turned off. She wanted to get up to turn it off but as soon as she tried to get out of bed, Lu Jingzhi stopped her immediately. &x201C;Where are you going?&x201D;
&x201C;Uh&x2026;I want to go to the bathroom.&x201D;
&x201C;I have already turned your laptop off for you.&x201D; How could Lu Jingzhi not know when Jiang Yuning was lying to him?
