Lu Jingzhi closed his text messages before looking at the time. It was already one thirty in the morning.
His little descendant was really working very hard.
A person who really did not have the passion and love for acting would definitely not be able to persevere in this industry.
Lu Jingzhi put his cell phone aside before he looked at the empty spot beside him on his king sized bed. There was no one there for him to hold onto his arm, no one to act coquettishly with him, and he missed all of that. It seemed as though it was time for him to go and catch someone!
Unconsciously, the intense filming of continued all the way until November.
The weather was getting colder and colder, and this was also the reason why Jiang Yuning kept eating more and more. Therefore, her face started getting rounder and rounder and everyone around her could see that she was putting on some weight.
When Vera finally came to visit Jiang Yuning at the filming set, she was extremely startled. &x201C;How much do you weigh now?&x201D;
&x201C;Ninety six pounds,&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied immediately.
&x201C;You gained six pounds in just one month? Yuning, are you crazy?&x201D; Vera asked with a panicked expression on her face. &x201C;Doesn&x2019;t your conscience hurt at all when you keep eating so much and stuffing yourself with food?&x201D;
&x201C;I don&x2019;t know why but I am really afraid of the cold, especially during winter. If I get a little fatter, I can get through winter so much easier.&x201D;
Vera shook her head helplessly as she took the packet of chicken thigh rice that Jiang Yuning had in her hands away from her. &x201C;I will ask the young paparazzo to watch and supervise your weight loss starting from today. How can a female artiste have no care or worries about her body image at all?&x201D;
&x201C;Okay then,&x201D; Jiang Yuning agreed reluctantly. However, at this time, she suddenly took some snacks out from behind her sofa cushions.
Vera&x2019;s eyes widened immediately. She quickly instructed the young paparazzo to help her to clear out all of the snacks hidden in Jiang Yuning&x2019;s room.
Jiang Yuning felt as though she was about to die when she saw Vera getting rid of all the snacks that she had hidden in her room.
&x201C;You will be attending the press conference for soon. Furthermore, you will also be attending B University&x2019;s fiftieth anniversary celebration this month. I have already fought for three days of vacation for you from Director Mong and he has already given me his approval. If you continue bingeing and eating like this, you will definitely be chubbier and rounder in half a month. I really wonder how you are going to stand on stage to sing a song for Second Young Master Lu when your face is as round as a basin then!&x201D;
Jiang Yuning was dumbfounded and speechless after listening to Vera&x2019;s words.
In fact, Jiang Yuning could not be blamed for this. It all began when she waited for Lu Jingzhi in front of his university gate for a few days in the past. After that winter, Jiang Yuning started to dread the cold and every subsequent winter was a nightmare to her. Moreover, it was really very tiring and tedious for her to film because Jiang Yuning had to film many night scenes. Therefore, she had to stand in the open and endure the cold winter wind for a few hours whenever they had to film a scene. Even the strongest and fittest production crew members could not stand the cold and Director Mong also came down with a cold and fever for a few days because of the cold. At this time, everyone could only rely on Jiang Yuning to prescribe some traditional Chinese medicine to the crew.
The young paparazzo dragged Vera to a corner of the room when he saw Jiang Yuning&x2019;s frustration. &x201C;Sister Vera, you cannot blame Sister Yuning for eating and gaining some weight. I can tell that she is really afraid of the cold compared to any ordinary person. This could be related to her small and slim physique. Moreover, I do not think that she is fat now. After all, Sister Yuning is very tall. You should not be so strict with her.&x201D;
&x201C;Furthermore, you should know that Director Mong is a very strict director. When he asks you to get in the water, you get in the water. If he asks you to stand under the rain, you stand under the rain. Sister Yuning has never once complained and she has always followed each and every one of his instructions without any hesitation at all.&x201D;
After listening to the young paparazzo&x2019;s explanation, Vera softened her heart a little. &x201C;I will make the necessary arrangements to bring her for a physical check up next month.&x201D;
&x201C;Or&x2026;should we tell Second Young Master Lu about this?&x201D;
Vera stole a glance at Jiang Yuning before she replied, &x201C;I know what I have to do.&x201D;
Jiang Yuning had a good relationship with all the production crew and cast members in this drama. After all, the people could always depend on Jiang Yuning to offer them a remedy whenever they came down with a headache or fever. This way, Jiang Yuning had also helped the crew to save a lot on medical fees.
Therefore, when the production crew members found out that Jiang Yuning was afraid of the cold, they tried their best to look after her and make her as comfortable as they could.
This was a vast improvement for Jiang Yuning in comparison to the treatment that she received a few years ago.
After visiting Jiang Yuning and making sure that she was fine, Vera made a trip to Xiao Chennan&x2019;s room to visit him. However, when Vera finally returned to Jiang Yuning&x2019;s room, her lipstick was smudged.
&x201C;Sigh. You have already confiscated all of my snacks and now you are trying to make me jealous of your relationship,&x201D; Jiang Yuning could not help but complain as she lay on the sofa wrapped in a quilt. She had a very dissatisfied expression on her face.
&x201C;Alright. I will make some arrangements for you.&x201D;
&x201C;That is much better.&x201D;
Initially, Jiang Yuning thought that Vera would arrange for some snacks to be delivered to her. However, when she returned to her bedroom after filming a night scene two days later, she suddenly sensed something amiss.
All of the lights in the room were turned off and the young paparazzo did not follow her into her room today. Jiang Yuning reached out her hand as she wanted to switch on the lights but unexpectedly, she was suddenly pressed against the wall by a familiar force.
Jiang Yuning straightened her body and after a short moment, she asked in a careful manner, &x201C;Second Brother?&x201D;
Lu Jingzhi reached out his hand and locked the bedroom door before he hugged Jiang Yuning tightly in his embrace. The little descendant&x2019;s body was as cold as ice and it felt as though she had no body temperature at all.
&x201C;It&x2019;s you! You are really here!&x201D; Jiang Yuning yelled excitedly as she touched Lu Jingzhi&x2019;s warm body and hugged him back immediately. &x201C;Why are you here? When did you come?&x201D;
It was no wonder why the young paparazzo did not follow her into her room today.
&x201C;I came to catch you!&x201D; Lu Jingzhi replied in a deep and deadly voice.
Jiang Yuning finally felt alive as she jumped onto Lu Jingzhi.
Both of them continued embracing in the dark and they did not turn on the lights because there were many reporters loitering around the hotel. Therefore, it would not be safe for both of them. Jiang Yuning sat on Lu Jingzhi&x2019;s lap and she was extremely satisfied at this time. &x201C;Second Brother, you traveled a thousand miles to send me some warmth?&x201D;
The both of them laid on the sofa as they covered themselves with a thick and warm quilt.
Lu Jingzhi hugged Jiang Yuning before he finally said, &x201C;I seem to remember that you were not afraid of the cold at all when you were a kid. I will take you to the hospital for a medical examination tomorrow&x2026;&x201D;
&x201C;No need!&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied as she buried her face in Lu Jingzhi&x2019;s chest. &x201C;I am very healthy. I am only afraid of winter.&x201D;
&x201C;Hm&x2026;&x201D; Lu Jingzhi obviously did not believe her words at all.
&x201C;I am not lying. I am really very healthy.&x201D;
Lu Jingzhi took this opportunity to hold her hands before he placed her cold feet on his. &x201C;You call this healthy?&x201D;
&x201C;Actually, I really do not know what happened&x2026;it all began after I came back from waiting for you in front of your university during winter a few years ago. After I fell sick, I started to be afraid of the cold.&x201D;
Three days and four nights out in the icy snowing winter.
Lu Jingzhi did not expect Jiang Yuning to experience this kind of effect.
&x201C;And look! I have a warm and big heater right next to me now. It&x2019;s so warm and comfortable.&x201D;
Lu Jingzhi sighed before he placed her hands around his waist. &x201C;I will ask Sister Liang to make some tonic for you so that you can restore your body back to health after we get back.&x201D;
&x201C;No, I don&x2019;t want to. I want to have more excuses to hug you!&x201D;
&x201C;You do not need to have any excuses to hug me. You can hug me whenever you want to.&x201D;
Jiang Yuning felt as though she was about to burst into tears after listening to Lu Jingzhi. &x201C;Sob. Sob. Second Brother, you are so good to me.&x201D;
&x201C;I am not good. Otherwise, you would not have suffered so much because of me.&x201D;
She did it willingly. Even if she had to suffer a little, she still felt very sweet inside.
&x201C;Second Brother, are you leaving tomorrow?&x201D;
Lu Jingzhi did not want her to inquire about his itinerary. In fact, the reason why Lu Jingzhi could come and visit her at her filming location was because he had a meeting to attend in T City. He had not attended this meeting in person for the past few years because he did not need to do so. However, since his wife was here right now, he took advantage of this opportunity to attend the meeting just so he could see her and spend some time with her.
Jiang Yuning slept particularly well that night but unfortunately, she had to wake up at six o&x2019;clock the next morning to start work.
Jiang Yuning struggled to wake up the next morning as she felt so comfortable and cozy in Lu Jingzhi&x2019;s arms.
When she saw Lu Jingzhi sleeping beside her, Jiang Yuning could not help but smiled helplessly as she ran her finger across his thin lips. &x201C;Second Brother, you are so attractive even when you sleep.&x201D;
She had always been the earliest person on set but today, she was almost late for her scene.
