&x201C;It seems as though you will never admit your guilt. Is that right?&x201D; Jiang Yuning asked Yi Fan as she continued holding the tea cup in her hand.
&x201C;Why should I admit it if I did not do anything at all?&x201D; Yi Fan asked as she leaned against the back of her chair. She was staring at Jiang Yuning as though she was looking at a joke at this time. &x201C;Yuning, if you really want to put the blame on me, then you had better come up with some solid evidence. You were so victorious earlier today when you handled the public relations matters, so I do not want you to go down in such an ugly manner later in the afternoon for slandering your classmate.&x201D;
&x201C;Why don&x2019;t you have a look at this?&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied as she took out two photographs from her bag before placing them in front of Yi Fan. &x201C;Yi Fan, do you know what your biggest flaw is? It&x2019;s the fact that I know you have always loved high heels.&x201D;
Yi Fan leaned forward to look at the pictures and her mind went blank as soon as she saw the pictures that Jiang Yuning had placed on the table.
&x201C;The picture on the left was taken by the police officer from the footage recovered from the surveillance camera and the picture on the right was taken in your garage. There is the exact same car perfume and the high heels ornament in both the pictures. How do you explain this?
Yi Fan&x2019;s face was flushed red with shame at this time. After all, Jiang Yuning had exposed all her lies right in front of her. She was sweating profusely due to nerves because she had been caught red-handed.
&x201C;Do you really want to&x2026;continue keeping up with your charade?&x201D; Jiang Yuning asked as she glared coldly at Yi Fan. &x201C;It is really not surprising that Zhong Hongyu could be your roommate for four years during college. Both of you are equally cunning and despicable. However, you did not realize that I am no longer the same Jiang Yuning that you used to know in the past.&x201D;
Yi Fan&x2019;s face turned even paler when she heard Jiang Yuning&x2019;s words. &x201C;What do you want now?&x201D;
&x201C;I want to hear you continue lying through your teeth and keeping up with your charade. I will find it really boring if you give up so easily.&x201D;
&x201C;Jiang Yuning, are you here to play around with me?&x201D;
&x201C;That&x2019;s right. I came here to play around with you. I would also like to know why you&x2019;re doing this to me anyway,&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied as she picked up the two pictures before placing them in her bag again. &x201C;Even though Zhong Hongyu went overboard, she did not do anything as extreme as you did. Therefore, I am really curious to find out your true intentions for doing all this. What do you want? It can&x2019;t be as simple as to simply prevent me from performing on stage.&x201D;
Yi Fan smirked as soon as she heard Jiang Yuning&x2019;s question.
At this time, Yi Fan subconsciously clenched her fists tightly together before she said, &x201C;I would advise you not to ask so much. The less you know, the better it would be for you. Jiang Yuning, why did you have to go around asking so many questions and conducting your own investigation into this matter? There are certain things that can never be stopped once they have been done. Moreover, do you really think that&x2026;you can convict me with just these two photographs? Impossible&x2026;&x201D;
&x201C;Just look at you, Jiang Yuning. You dealt with the public relations so beautifully in the morning. To be honest, I find it really a waste for you to fall deeper into the whirlpool of public opinion, but you are the one who asked for it.&x201D;
&x201C;Jiang Yuning, why do you have to do this and push me to a dead end?&x201D;
After she was done speaking, Yi Fan stood up before she walked away from Jiang Yuning and Vera immediately.
Vera got up to chase after Yi Fan but Jiang Yuning stopped her.
&x201C;Didn&x2019;t you hear what she had just said? She has an even more vicious secret that she is hiding from us.&x201D;
&x201C;That woman is really amazing. We have already placed the evidence in front of her but she could just continue acting and denying her involvement in this matter. Yuning, are you really going to let her off the hook just like this?&x201D;
&x201C;Let her off?&x201D; Jiang Yuning asked as she chuckled. &x201C;Are you talking about me? Vera, have you ever seen me letting anyone off the hook before?&x201D;
Vera did not understand why Jiang Yuning had let Yi Fan leave so easily then.
Firstly, Lu Jingzhi was trying really hard to locate the suspect who had escaped from Luo City and gone into hiding. Secondly, Jiang Yuning really wanted to find out what secret Yi Fan was hiding from her.
&x201C;What will you do if we cannot resolve the trouble that Yi Fan is going to create for you?&x201D;
&x201C;If she can make up a problem, then I can definitely resolve it,&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied in a very confident manner.
&x201C;But you will be resuming your filming tomorrow.&x201D;
&x201C;I will definitely deal with her and teach her a lesson even if I am a thousand miles away. Let&x2019;s go home already.&x201D;
Vera nodded her head before she led Jiang Yuning out of the restaurant without drawing any attention to themselves. Jiang Yuning was convinced that Yi Fan would definitely take action first to protect herself because Jiang Yuning had already provoked her by placing the evidence in front of her.
Indeed, Yi Fan prepared to put the plagiarism act that she had already been planning all this while on the big screen as soon as she got home just because she wanted to be one step ahead of Jiang Yuning. Yi Fan had already been preparing for this day ever since she released her single hit &x2018;Stealing Hearts&x2019; because she already expected this day to come sooner or later.
She had tried to prevent this day from happening but Jiang Yuning had to provoke her and hunt her down like this. Therefore, Jiang Yuning could not blame her for not taking their friendship into consideration then.
Lu Jingzhi returned home at six o&x2019;clock that evening, which was much earlier than usual because he knew that Jiang Yuning would be returning to the filming set tomorrow.
&x201C;We have already found out the whereabouts of that man but it will take some time for us to extradite him back to Luo City.&x201D; This was the first sentence that Lu Jingzhi said to Jiang Yuning as soon as he entered the villa.
There was no need for Lu Jingzhi to explain who he was referring to because it went without saying.
&x201C;Second Brother, I was bored earlier, so I recorded myself singing &x2018;Holding Hearts&x2019; just for you. You can use the recording as your ringtone. Should I change it for you?&x201D; Jiang Yuning asked as she continued sitting on the sofa. As soon as Lu Jingzhi sat beside her, she started rummaging through his clothing and placing her hands in his trouser pockets in search for his cell phone. However, Jiang Yuning could not find his cell phone even after checking both his pockets. &x201C;Second Brother, where is your cell phone?&x201D;
Lu Jingzhi grabbed Jiang Yuning&x2019;s hand before he threatened her immediately, &x201C;You can touch me again at your own risk if you want to.&x201D;
Jiang Yuning could not help but smile when she saw the expression on her man&x2019;s face. &x201C;I got it. I understand. Come, hand your cell phone over to me.&x201D;
&x201C;Are you not concerned about the suspect at all?&x201D; Lu Jingzhi asked as he took his cell phone out from his shirt pocket before handing it over to Jiang Yuning.
Jiang Yuning took his cell phone in her hand before she concentrated on setting her voice recording as his ringtone. After she was done setting his ringtone, she looked at Lu Jingzhi before she replied, &x201C;Don&x2019;t you remember what you said to me last night? You told me that I could deal with things the way I want to and you will deal with things on your end too.&x201D;
&x201C;Are you already feeling rest assured now?&x201D;
&x201C;If I do not allow you to control me and keep things in line for me, then you will feel as if I no longer need you in my life to protect me,&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied as she looked at Lu Jingzhi. &x201C;Second Brother, please do not make any public announcements after you bring the suspect back to Luo City. That kid, Yi Fan, is trying to play games with me. I have always been very dedicated to fulfilling the needs of others.&x201D;
The little fox had a bright and dazzling smile on her face. Was she really that confident?
&x201C;Second Brother, what are you doing? Go upstairs and take a bath!&x201D;
However, Lu Jingzhi continued staring at Jiang Yuning without moving at all.
He had a very obvious suggestive look on his face.
He was giving her a hint. Why was she not bathing together with him?
Lu Jingzhi finally got what he wanted. Jiang Yuning had already been waiting for the entire afternoon but Yi Fan had not taken any action at all. However, Jiang Yuning&x2019;s cell phone started ringing as she was taking a bath with Lu Jingzhi.
&x201C;Second Brother, I have to answer this call.&x201D;
As soon as Jiang Yuning heard her cell phone ringing, she stepped out of the bathtub immediately.
When Lu Jingzhi saw that she was barefooted again, he got out of the bathtub before picking up a bathrobe and wrapping it around Jiang Yuning.
&x201C;Yuning, what you were waiting for&x2026;is already here,&x201D; Vera said helplessly over the other end of the line. &x201C;Can&x2019;t you let us catch our breaths for just a moment?&x201D;
&x201C;What did she do?&x201D; Jiang Yuning asked.
&x201C;You should go on the Internet and find out yourself.&x201D;
Vera sighed before hanging up the phone.
Jiang Yuning went online immediately and she saw that she had already made it to the hot search once again. However, it was not because of any compliments this time, but instead&x2026;
[Jiang Yuning&x2019;s new song, &x2018;Holding Hearts&x2019;, is a plagiarism of my idol&x2019;s new song, &x2018;Stealing Hearts&x2019;! The following is a comparison of the melodies of the two songs.]
