&x201C;Besides this matter, haven&x2019;t we already given in to you in all that you want to do?&x201D; Ku Jie asked Jiang Yuning as he stood up from the sofa. He patted Jiang Yuning&x2019;s head before he continued, &x201C;Aren&x2019;t you asking for too much?&x201D;
&x201C;Can you just allow me to do things my way one more time, then? If neither of you are satisfied with the way that I am going to handle this issue, then I promise that I will leave this matter in your hands and I will not complain in any way. I swear,&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied as she raised her hand.
Vera had to control herself and hold back her laughter when she saw Jiang Yuning raising her hand.
Sometimes, it could be really overwhelming to have two strong headed men in the family.
Jiang Muyang could not make a decision. Therefore, he turned his attention onto Lu Jingzhi before he asked, &x201C;What is your opinion on this?&x201D;
Lu Jingzhi unexpectedly replied with a simple sentence. &x201C;You can deal with the matter in your own way and I will deal with it in mine. This way, there will be no conflicts between us.&x201D;
As soon as Jiang Yuning heard Lu Jingzhi&x2019;s words, she threw herself onto Lu Jingzhi&x2019;s body before she said, &x201C;Second Brother, you are the best!&x201D;
&x201C;What about me? Do I mean nothing to you at all? So, everything has changed since you became Mrs. Lu? Are you saying that I was meddling in your business when I came here in the middle of the night as soon as I heard what happened to you?&x201D;
&x201C;I know that it must have been very tiring for my precious brother to come over in the middle of the night. Therefore, I have already asked Sister Liang to cook some soup that can eliminate heatiness for you. I will go to the kitchen to get you a bowl of soup now. Otherwise, would you like to hit me twice instead?&x201D; Jiang Yuning quickly comforted Ku Jie before she placed her palms in front of him.
&x201C;Forget it,&x201D; Ku Jie replied as he pushed Jiang Yuning&x2019;s hand away. &x201C;Since Lu Jingzhi has already made his stand clear, then I will just leave after drinking the soup.&x201D;
&x201C;Okay then&x2026;&x201D; Jiang Yuning hurried into the kitchen to get the bowl of soup for her brother. After serving the soup to him, Jiang Yuning could not help but say, &x201C;Brother&x2026;you should also think about yourself sometimes. How can you find a sister-in-law for me if you are always worried about me and putting me in the first place? You are already a grown up man but you are still so controlling towards your own sister.&x201D;
&x201C;Can I control you?&x201D;
Impossible! She could not be controlled.
After seeing Ku Jie off, Jiang Yuning instructed Vera immediately, &x201C;Please help me to apply for one more day off from Director Mong. You have already witnessed the scene earlier. If I do not try to handle this matter on my own, these two people will stop at nothing to get to the bottom of it.&x201D;
&x201C;I got it,&x201D; Vera replied before she followed after Ku Jie&x2019;s footsteps and left Royal Dragon Villa.
&x201C;Wow&x2026;there is finally peace in the house.&x201D; When Jiang Yuning saw that everyone had already left, she sat down beside Lu Jingzhi immediately. &x201C;Second Brother, the song that I wrote for you&x2026;would you like me to sing it again? This time, I will only sing it to you alone.&x201D;
Lu Jingzhi caressed Jiang Yuning&x2019;s ear gently before he replied, &x201C;Yes.&x201D;
Jiang Yuning chuckled before she started singing out loud:
The fireworks in my heart never seemed to fade away;
I want extravagance but it seemed as though my dreams were all destroyed, I want happiness but the future seemed so far away;
It was only until you finally showed up, that the flame in my heart was ignited;
It was really noisy at the event hall earlier and Lu Jingzhi was seated too far away from the stage. Therefore, even though he was placing all of his focus and attention on Jiang Yuning, he could not fully understand the lyrics of the song. But now&x2026;
He realized it was such an explicit love confession&x2026;
If Lu Jingzhi could hold back at this time, he would no longer be Lu Jingzhi.
Jiang Yuning could not comprehend how they had ended up in bed as she continued singing for him. After a short while, Jiang Yuning curled up in Lu Jingzhi&x2019;s arms as she stared at Lu Jingzhi&x2019;s face. She could not stop herself from running her finger through his nose bridge as she said, &x201C;Second Brother, you look very happy tonight.&x201D;
On the other hand, at the police station.
Secretary Ho was waiting at the police station. At this time, the two students from B University were still being held inside the interrogation room.
&x201C;Dear officer, the only reason why we did what we did is simply because we do not like the idea of Jiang Yuning attending our university&x2019;s fiftieth anniversary celebration. We did not want her to perform on stage. We really do not have any other ill intentions.&x201D;
&x201C;You are both university students! Do you know anything about the law at all? Do you want me to explain the extent of the crime that you have just committed? Do you know what the punishment and sentence you might face for attempting to kidnap someone is?&x201D; The officer who was interrogating the students was starting to lose his patience because the students kept insisting that they had only done it out of impulse and they refused to admit to their guilt at all. They insisted that they had only done what they did to stop Jiang Yuning from going on stage to perform.
&x201C;Dear officer&x2026;Jiang Yuning is the one at fault here. Why must she insist on coming to B University to perform when she is already aware about how everyone in the music course hates her? We are not the only ones who dislike her!&x201D;
They wanted to continue denying their crime?
&x201C;Both of you are grown up men but you have no sense of responsibility at all. You refuse to admit your own mistake and it seems as though you cannot tell right from wrong! Alright then, since you refuse to speak up, then both of you can just sit here and wait for Jiang Yuning&x2019;s lawyer letter. From the looks of it, Jiang Yuning&x2019;s agency intends to conduct their investigation until they find out the mastermind behind this kidnapping attempt. You should know that your studies and your reputations will definitely be affected once you are convicted of your crime. You can insist that you were both merely playing a prank of Jiang Yuning, but she is so rich. So, how can you prove that you did not try to kidnap her just so you can extort her for money?&x201D;
The two students finally showed some fear in their eyes after listening to the police officer&x2019;s words.
&x201C;Are the consequences&x2026;really that serious?&x201D;
&x201C;Both of you have no regard for the law at all. Serves you right for being used.&x201D; After that, the police officer stood up and was about to leave the interrogation room. However, at this time, one of the boys stopped him immediately.
&x201C;Officer, if we tell you the truth&x2026;can we get a lighter punishment?&x201D;
About ten minutes later, the two students finally explained and told the police officer everything that they knew. They also told the police officer about the school staff member who was responsible for arranging the kidnap attempt. However, when the police officer had tried to locate the man, they found out that the person had already left the city.
It turned out that this man was not even a formal employee of B University in the first place. He was merely a distant relative of one of the school employees and he only came to help out for the special event.
The police subsequently contacted B University to obtain the footage from the surveillance camera from a few days back. After running through the footage, they found out that the suspect had gotten into a black Mercedes-Benz with a hidden license plate.
However, they could not find any other evidence.
&x201C;Mr. Ho, there is only so much that we can do.&x201D;
Secretary Ho thanked the police officers as soon as he could hold of the picture of the black Mercedes-Benz before he headed to Royal Dragon Villa even though it was already in the middle of the night. This was because Secretary Ho felt that the young mistress might be able to determine who the owner of the car was since this person was specifically targeting her.
Therefore, Lu Jingzhi woke Jiang Yuning up at four o&x2019;clock in the morning to show her the picture of the car.
&x201C;Young mistress, do you find this car familiar at all?&x201D;
Jiang Yuning stared at the picture for a short while before she shook her head. &x201C;I can&x2019;t seem to remember this car at all. Who would hate me so much to do this to me?&x201D;
&x201C;If even the young mistress cannot determine the owner of this car, then it might be very difficult for us to find the mastermind because the suspect in the picture has already run away.&x201D;
&x201C;Let me take a closer look at the picture,&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied as she observed and studied the picture once again.
However, how would Jiang Yuning be able to determine who the owner of the car was simply by looking at a picture of the car?
Jiang Yuning thought hard and at this time, she suddenly noticed the car decoration that was placed on the car dashboard. It was a small high heels model.
Who else loved high heels as much as she did? Did she do it?
&x201C;Young mistress, have you&x2026;do you have someone in mind?&x201D;
&x201C;Thank you for your hard work, Secretary Ho. It must have been really tiring for you tonight. I have some speculations in my heart but I need to verify something first. Could I trouble you into doing me a favor?&x201D;
&x201C;Please give me your orders.&x201D;
Secretary Ho left the villa about three minutes later before he went on to verify Jiang Yuning&x2019;s speculations.
When Lu Jingzhi saw the look on Jiang Yuning&x2019;s face, he pulled her into his arms and hugged her before he asked, &x201C;Do you know who did it?&x201D;
&x201C;It is just my speculation. Don&x2019;t worry, I will deal with this matter tomorrow,&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied. &x201C;Sob. Sob. Second Brother, we can finally go back to sleep&x2026;&x201D;
