Both of them were very close together and they could feel each other&x2019;s breaths against their faces. They could even see each other&x2019;s eyelashes as they looked at themselves in each other&x2019;s pupils.
&x201C;Is that the reason why&x2026;you refused to agree to be my girlfriend?&x201D;
Vera felt a little guilty after listening to Xiao Chennan&x2019;s words and she tried to look away but Xiao Chennan grabbed hold of her chin immediately.
&x201C;I&x2026;am not as great as you think I am. I was born into a regular family and I did not attend a good university. I used to be very fat too. However, I am just very lucky and fortunate to have acted in several good dramas and movies. Vera, do you know that you are the first woman that I have ever chased and confessed my feelings to? So, could you just give me a status before I join the cast?&x201D;
Vera felt that her heart had already been stolen away just by looking into Xiao Chennan&x2019;s eyes.
In fact, it wasn&x2019;t because she did not want to become his girlfriend, but she was simply afraid.
When Xiao Chennan saw that Vera was refusing to answer his question, he patted Vera gently on her head before he said, &x201C;Forget it. I will not force you. Anyway, we cannot force this kind of feelings.&x201D;
When Vera saw that Xiao Chennan was about withdraw his hand, she suddenly grabbed hold of his hand and said, &x201C;Brother Nan, I&x2026;I am different from other girls. Once I commit myself to a relationship, I will remain loyal and I will not simply give up on the relationship. I cannot tolerate any betrayal and I expect my boyfriend to remain dedicated and loyal to me. I admit that I am a very idealistic person in terms of relationships, and I yearn for a lot of love and affection from my partner. Brother Nan, if you think that you can tolerate someone with such emotional needs, then maybe we could try&x2026;&x201D;
After hearing Vera&x2019;s words, Xiao Chennan kissed Vera on her lips before he asked, &x201C;How long have you kept these feelings to yourself?&x201D;
&x201C;You can tell me anything without any worries at all in the future. Do you understand what I am trying to say? You don&x2019;t have to worry about anything because in the end, I will become the closest person to you, and there won&x2019;t be anything you can&x2019;t tell me,&x201D; Xiao Chennan replied as he embraced Vera tightly in his arms. He could clearly feel Vera trembling in his embrace.
Vera was really afraid of commitment but as Xiao Chennan embraced her, she suddenly felt safe and sound.
She could not help her heart from beating rapidly and her palms kept sweating. Vera could not deny that she really liked Xiao Chennan.
Both of them continued staying in her apartment until it was late at night.
After that, Xiao Chennan finally let go of Vera before he offered to leave. &x201C;I will head home first. You had better rest earlier tonight.&x201D;
Xiao Chennan did not pressure Vera into doing anything and this made Vera feel very relaxed and at ease. &x201C;Please be safe on the way home.&x201D;
Vera then walked Xiao Chennan to the front door.
However, when Vera was about to close the door, Xiao Chennan pulled Vera into his arms again. &x201C;What should I do now? I feel so reluctant to leave you.&x201D;
&x201C;I will go and visit you at work.&x201D;
&x201C;Then&x2026;that depends on who you are visiting&x2026;&x201D; After all, Vera was Jiang Yuning&x2019;s exclusive agent.
&x201C;You!&x201D; After that, Vera pushed Xiao Chennan away before she closed the door behind her as she had already started blushing.
Xiao Chennan looked at the closed door before he chuckled. He did not make this trip in vain tonight and he finally had an official status with Vera.
It took quite a while before Vera&x2019;s heart started beating normally again as she stood behind the door. Initially, Vera had wanted to call Jiang Yuning and share the good news with her but she suddenly remember that Jiang Yuning would definitely be busy with Lu Jingzhi tonight.
She was in love.
She was finally in love!
Jiang Yuning was still fast asleep in bed early the next morning. At this time, Lu Jingzhi was already standing in front of the bed as he got dressed for work.
After buttoning the last button on his shirt, Lu Jingzhi sat on the edge of the bed before he pinched Jiang Yuning&x2019;s nose gently. &x201C;Make sure to stay obedient after entering the cast. Don&x2019;t get into trouble and don&x2019;t test my heart all the time. Call me if you run into any trouble and remember to miss me.&x201D;
Jiang Yuning opened her eyes slowly before she grabbed hold of the hand that was pinching her nose. &x201C;Okay, Second Brother. I promise to be obedient and good, and you will definitely be the first person I call if I run into any trouble. I will miss you and think of you every day, Second Brother. Can you hug me again?&x201D;
After listening to Jiang Yuning&x2019;s words, Lu Jingzhi pulled her out from beneath the quilt before he hugged her tightly in his arms.
&x201C;I will give you a gift during B University&x2019;s fiftieth anniversary celebration.&x201D;
&x201C;I am already looking forward to it.&x201D;
&x201C;Second Brother&x2026;sob&x2026;sob&x2026;&x201D; Jiang Yuning cried coquettishly as she hugged Lu Jingzhi. &x201C;Don&x2019;t let me see your back when you leave me later. I can&x2019;t stand watching people walking away and leaving me behind. I am afraid that I will burst into tears.&x201D;
&x201C;It is only for four months. It is not such a long time and I will definitely visit you when I have the time, okay?&x201D;
Jiang Yuning nodded her head as her tears filled her eyes.
It was always a fatal test for her whenever she had to be separated from Lu Jingzhi.
Fortunately, she already had plenty of videos of Lu Jingzhi in her cell phone and this was the only reason she could continue living.
&x201C;Second Brother, Husband, I love you.&x201D;
Jiang Yuning would always be extra sticky and clingy every time they had to be separated and Lu Jingzhi had already gotten used to it.
That was the reason why he had woken up an hour earlier today but it seemed as though it was not enough for the little descendant.
It was only after Secretary Ho urged Lu Jingzhi to come downstairs that he finally let go of Jiang Yuning and walked downstairs. However, Jiang Yuning quickly caught up and jumped into Lu Jingzhi&x2019;s arms as soon as he stepped out of the house.
Lu Jingzhi caught hold of Jiang Yuning and both of them continued hugging for a short while before he finally let go of her and said, &x201C;I really have to leave now.&x201D;
&x201C;Okay then,&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied as she let go of him reluctantly.
&x201C;Silly girl. Don&x2019;t push yourself too hard.&x201D;
Lu Jingzhi patted Jiang Yuning on her head before he finally got into his car and left Jiang Yuning&x2019;s sight.
Jiang Yuning pursed her lips tightly together before she looked up at the sky to hold back her tears.
Everything was going to be fine. They would be apart for just four months!
Who asked her to be an artiste?
Not too far away, Secretary Ho could not help but ask Lu Jingzhi a question as he saw how the principal and his wife had reacted as they bid farewell to one another. &x201C;Principal, don&x2019;t you get tired of the young mistress acting this way? Won&x2019;t you feel impatient at all?&x201D;
After hearing Secretary Ho&x2019;s answer, he shook his head but he did not give him an answer.
Impatient? Perhaps he had felt impatient with her in the past when he was jealous.
After both of them had reunited and gotten together, he had never once felt impatient with her. This was because he understood that although Jiang Yuning looked stronger than anyone else, her emotional needs were higher than anyone else&x2019;s.
After thinking for a long time, Lu Jingzhi finally gave Secretary Ho an answer. &x201C;That only proves how much she needs me and I need her very much too.&x201D;
Secretary Ho could feel goosebumps all over his body after hearing Lu Jingzhi&x2019;s answer.
Was this couple really married? How could they be so loving and clingy even after so long?
Secretary Ho had already seen so many couples falling in love and breaking up within a couple of months&x2026;
Was it really because they loved each other so much?
Later that afternoon, Vera drove to the Royal Dragon Villa with the young paparazzo to pick Jiang Yuning up.
As soon as they entered the living room, both of them could not help but burst out laughing as soon as they saw Jiang Yuning.
This was because she was holding onto a piece of tissue at this time as she cried by herself.
&x201C;Is this really necessary? You will only be gone for four months, not four years!&x201D; Vera could not stand Jiang Yuning&x2019;s exaggeration. &x201C;I was planning to take a picture of you to post online for the Ginger Candies, but it seems as though that is not happening anymore.&x201D;
&x201C;I will not be able to see my idol for four months. Don&x2019;t you understand my feelings?&x201D; Jiang Yuning asked as she continued to cry. &x201C;I am also chasing after my idol but my journey is so much tougher than others&x2019;. Other people can simply watch the news and go online to look at their idols, but what about me? What can I do?&x201D;
