After returning from B University, Jiang Yuning started preparing for the start up conference for .
A few days later, Jiang Yuning participated in the launching conference for . All the main creators and people involved in the drama attended the conference on that day. It was obvious that Director Mong really placed a lot of importance to this drama production. Everyone&x2019;s focus was fixated on Jiang Yuning at this time.
Therefore, Jiang Yuning had no choice but to bring her &x2018;A&x2019; game.
Jiang Yuning was afraid to slack off even a little because she knew that everyone was paying attention to her and watching her every move.
Whenever she had any free time away from any scheduled activities, Jiang Yuning would seize the opportunity to memorize and recite her lines while picturing herself as Li Zhimong.
Vera arrived at the Royal Dragon Villa the day before Jiang Yuning was supposed to start filming to help her to pack her luggage. When Vera thought about the promotional activities and events for that would be held in November, she quickly asked Jiang Yuning, &x201C;Yuning, you are sure that you will be participating in the fiftieth anniversary celebration of B University, right? Moreover, have you really made the decision to sing and perform the song that you have written on that day?&x201D;
&x201C;Yes, I am certain about it. I also need your help to get Second Brother a ticket to attend the anniversary celebration. I think that using the stage to confess my feelings for Second Brother through the song that I have written specially for him is not such a bad idea after all,&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied as she nodded her head in an affirmative manner. &x201C;I also agree with what Teacher Li said. There is no need for me to be bothered about what other people are saying about me. The most important thing is how I carry myself and what I think of myself.&x201D;
&x201C;Alright then. I will come and pick you up to join the cast in the afternoon tomorrow. You should spend the rest of the day and night with Second Young Master Lu. Stick to him as much as you want now. After all, both of you will be separated for a couple of months.&x201D;
Vera took Jiang Yuning&x2019;s luggage and placed it in the living room.
Jiang Yuning nodded her head before she waved her hand, signalling for Vera to leave immediately. &x201C;You should also leave now and spend as much time as you can with the film emperor. After all, he will be busy spending the next three or four months with me. You had better hurry up and spend as much time as you can with him before he place all of his focus on me.&x201D;
&x201C;You are such an annoying person.&x201D;
&x201C;Oh, by the way, you were single for such a long time. I believe that you have definitely come unprepared. Let me give you a small present,&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied as she rushed upstairs. A short while later, she came downstairs with a box of condoms in her hand.
Vera stared blushing and her face was flushed red as soon as she saw what Jiang Yuning was holding in her hand. She did not dare to take the box from Jiang Yuning.
&x201C;Jiang Yuning, what are you thinking about? I really wonder what is going through your mind every day&x2026;&x201D;
&x201C;Well, I am just afraid that you two will not be able to control your urges tonight. As a woman&x2026;you should remember to always protect yourself.&x201D; After that, Jiang Yuning stepped forward and forced the box of condoms into Vera&x2019;s bag. &x201C;You are not allowed to take it out!&x201D;
&x2018;What kind of friend is this?&x2019; Vera thought to herself.
On the other hand, Jiang Yuning was very satisfied and she could not help complimenting herself: &x201C;Why am I so amazing?&x201D;
At seven o&x2019;clock that night, Lu Jingzhi finally arrived back at the villa after working the entire day. As soon as he saw the luggage in the living room, he suddenly remembered that his wife would be leaving him to join the cast of tomorrow. This time, he would not be able to drive for three hours every night just to see Jiang Yuning at night. This time, he would really have to be separated from the little descendant for three or four months.
As he thought about this, Lu Jingzhi ran upstairs and pushed the bedroom door open.
At this time, he saw the little descendant wearing a black nightdress as she lay on the bed. Jiang Yuning had even tied a big pink bow behind her back.
Lu Jingzhi was speechless.
&x201C;Second Brother, you are finally home!&x201D; Jiang Yuning exclaimed excitedly as she jumped off the bed and immediately rushed towards Lu Jingzhi.
&x201C;A pink bow? Hmm?&x201D;
&x201C;I wanted to give you a surprise,&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied as she wrapped her arms around Lu Jingzhi&x2019;s neck. &x201C;This time, I will be gone for a few months once I leave. I will not be able to see you for months. I will not be able to hear your charming voice every day and night. I will not be able to hold you in my arms. I am really sad.&x201D;
Lu Jingzhi hugged her while standing still. &x201C;So, what should you do?&x201D;
Jiang Yuning kissed the bridge of his nose gently before she said, &x201C;So, I will be giving you the advance payment tonight.&x201D;
&x201C;Then what are you waiting for?&x201D;
Lu Jingzhi calculated the number of days that Jiang Yuning would not be by his side and even if they had twenty-four hours tonight, it would still not be enough.
&x201C;This advance payment is only sufficient to last me until next week.&x201D;
&x201C;Then&x2026;what about the rest of the weeks?&x201D; Jiang Yuning asked. She suddenly regretted the fact that she had even tied a pink bow tie behind her back.
&x201C;We will get there&x2026;slowly!&x201D;
On the other hand, when Vera arrived back at her apartment, she saw Xiao Chennan&x2019;s car parked downstairs and it seemed as though he was waiting for her to come home.
&x201C;Can I go upstairs and sit if it is convenient for you?&x201D; Xiao Chennan asked as soon as he saw Vera. Xiao Chennan was dressed in casual clothing and he was wearing a black baseball cap to cover his face. This was to prevent any passers-by from recognizing him because he did not want to appear in the headlines the next day.
It had already been so long but Vera had failed to completely dispel Xiao Chennan&x2019;s concerns.
However, the reason why Vera had rejected Xiao Chennan&x2019;s request previously was not because she was a reserved person. Recently, Vera had decided to ensure that her apartment was always clean and tidy. This time, she was well prepared and she would not have any panties lying around on the sofa. Therefore, Vera nodded her head shyly as soon as she heard Xiao Chennan&x2019;s request.
Xiao Chennan followed quietly behind Vera as he watched her taking out her keys nervously before she opened the door.
&x201C;Please make yourself at home. What would you like to drink?&x201D; Vera asked Xiao Chennan as she was changing into her house slippers after they had both entered the house. &x201C;I do not have any men&x2019;s slippers in my house. I only have my slippers. So, can you&x2026;make do with one of mine for the time being?&x201D;
Xiao Chennan nodded his head. &x201C;Sure.&x201D;
Vera placed a new pair of slippers in front of Xiao Chennan and she could not help but laugh out loud when she saw that he could only fit the front part of his feet into the slippers.
&x201C;Sorry, I will buy you a pair next time.&x201D;
Xiao Chennan felt even happier and he was in a much better mood after hearing Vera&x2019;s words. &x201C;Okay!&x201D;
After realizing what she had just said, Vera blushed and quickly turned around before she tossed her bag onto the sofa.
However, she had completely forgotten that she had not zipped up her bag after Jiang Yuning had forcefully placed the box of condoms into her bag.
Therefore, as soon as she threw her bag onto the sofa, its contents spilled out immediately.
All the other items that fell out of the bag were usual necessities for girls. However, there was one box that was particularly eye-catching to Xiao Chennan.
As soon as Vera saw the box on the sofa, she felt as though she was about to die.
Yuning, you took this one step too far!
The atmosphere became extremely awkward all of a sudden. At this time, Xiao Chennan raised an eyebrow as he wondered whether Vera was trying to suggest something.
Vera was blushing, her face flushed red. &x201C;That&x2026;let me explain myself. I bought this for Yuning and I forgot to pass it to her just now&x2026;&x201D;
Xiao Chennan coughed lightly as he held back his laughter. &x201C;It&x2019;s okay. We are all adults.&x201D;
At this time, Vera quickly picked up all of her items before she stuffed it back into her bag and hurried into her bedroom to put it away.
Would Xiao Chennan be thinking badly of her now?
Vera retuned to the living room in a complex mood. At this time, Xiao Chennan was very relaxed, as though nothing had happened at all as he walked around Vera&x2019;s living room.
&x201C;I will get you a glass of water.&x201D;
Xiao Chennan picked up a photo frame with a picture of Vera before he turned around and looked towards Vera&x2019;s direction.
After Vera returned to the living room, Xiao Chennan asked Vera immediately, &x201C;Can you give me this picture?&x201D;
&x201C;Why do you want it?&x201D;
&x201C;I will be joining the cast for a couple of months. I might not be able to see you often.&x201D;
Vera realized and heaved a sigh of relief as soon as she understood Xiao Chennan&x2019;s intention. &x201C;Alright then. You may have it but make sure that nobody catches you with it. After all, you are the film emperor in the entertainment industry and I am just an agent. If anyone finds out about us, there will definitely be malicious rumors and gossip about you&x2026;&x201D;
Before Vera could finish her sentence, Xiao Chennan had already pulled Vera into his embrace&x2026;
