Lu Jingzhi was obsessed with cleanliness and he had a mild obsessive-compulsive disorder. Therefore, the principal did not really like to be in any crowded or noisy environment. Now, he had actually agreed to accompany his wife to have dinner so casually with all of her cast and crew members?
Secretary Ho felt that there was nothing that Lu Jingzhi would not do when it came down to Jiang Yuning.
Jiang Yuning was in a dilemma because although she was very pleased and excited to have Lu Jingzhi by her side, she was also suffering because she would have to come up with various explanations so that the crew members would keep her secret.
At this time, they finally decided to have dinner at a hotel nearby. All the cast and crew members were initially very harmonious and comfortable with one another as they were all as close as family, but now that Lu Jingzhi was around, they felt a little awkward.
Moreover, they did not know what kind of conversations they should have with him.
Should they talk about astronomy, geography, or any national events?
However, they did not know anything about that anyway! All they knew about was the gossip in the entertainment industry!
What would they have to say about the national defence in the country? They were clueless about this matter!
&x201C;Second Brother, what are you doing? I could have left as soon as I was done with dinner but look how awkward everyone is right now!&x201D; Jiang Yuning could not stop herself from whispering into Lu Jingzhi&x2019;s ear as soon as they sat down at the dinner place. &x201C;Everyone is afraid of you.&x201D;
&x201C;Why are they afraid of me for?&x201D;
Lu Jingzhi replied nonchalantly as he held Jiang Yuning&x2019;s hand under the table.
&x201C;Don&x2019;t make things complicated, Second Brother,&x201D; Jiang Yuning said as she quickly took her hand back. &x201C;What if someone finds out the truth when they see the wedding ring on your finger?&x201D;
Lu Jingzhi stopped making things difficult for Jiang Yuning at this time.
&x201C;You guys can just relax and act as you usually are. Otherwise, I will have to kick him out of this restaurant now!&x201D; Jiang Yuning said as she tried to make the cast and crew members feel a little more at ease. &x201C;You don&x2019;t have to worry about him. He is just like anyone of us.&x201D;
&x201C;Sister Yuning, how do you expect us to ignore someone like him?&x201D;
&x201C;Well, then you can just tell him about all the mischief and trouble that I have gotten into on set. He would definitely love to hear those stories,&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied as she smiled. &x201C;Maybe you can show him some of the ugly pictures or videos that you have of me.&x201D;
&x201C;Alright then, I have many unglamorous pictures of you in my cell phone! I even have a video of you wearing a green hat!&x201D;
Everyone suddenly burst into laughter and at this time, Director Mong also loosened up a little. Everyone could finally relax and enjoy themselves tonight.
As Secretary Ho sat down, he thought to himself, &x2018;It&x2019;s so crowded and noisy here. If this was any ordinary day, the principal would already have gotten up and left.&x2019;
However, at this time, Lu Jingzhi actually had a smile on his face.
The only reason why he wanted to visit Jiang Yuning on set and have dinner with her cast and crew members was simply because he wanted to hear from others about what the little descendant had been up to and what she had gone through while filming the drama. He wanted to know all the interesting things that happened and all the sufferings that Jiang Yuning had gone through for the past few months.
He wanted to know how Jiang Yuning lived and if she suffered when she was not by his side.
However, as the crew members told their stories about Jiang Yuning, everyone started praising and putting Jiang Yuning high up on a pedestal all of a sudden.
&x201C;Sister Yuning, when you were filming the scene by the cliff that day, I was so worried that I was about to burst into tears&x2026;I do not know how you could hang upside down on the tree for such a long time. You are really a very dedicated actress&x2026;&x201D;
&x201C;Yuning, I really need to apologize to you. To be honest, I did not really like you when I first met you but when I saw you jumping into the pond without any hesitation at all under such cold weather and harsh conditions, I was simply amazed and at a loss for words. Furthermore, we spent two whole days filming that scene before we finally got it right. I really admire your dedication and persistence.&x201D;
&x201C;We should not forget the time where you got knocked out when filming one of the scenes&x2026;I was so worried for you that I thought I was about to have a heart attack. However, I really can&x2019;t believe that you only took a five minutes break before you insisted on filming your scene again.&x201D;
As Jiang Yuning listened to the stories, she suddenly felt that something was wrong.
&x201C;No, no, stop it already,&x201D; Jiang Yuning said as she laughed awkwardly.
Hasn&x2019;t anyone noticed that Lu Jingzhi&x2019;s face had already turned black?
&x201C;Sister Yuning, starting from today, you are and will always be our idol!&x201D;
&x201C;I&x2026;I really did not suffer that much at all,&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied as she waved her hands desperately.
&x201C;You did. You did! I even have pictures to prove it&x2026;&x201D;
Jiang Yuning protested.
&x201C;I wasn&x2019;t suffering at all!&x201D;
&x201C;You were suffering!&x201D; one of the production crew members said as he took out his cell phone to prove what he was trying to say. However, at this time&x2026;
Lu Jingzhi suddenly stood up and dragged Jiang Yuning out of the large banquet hall with him.
Everyone was confused and started exchanging glances among themselves. What happened?
After a brief moment, one of the production crew members suddenly gathered the courage to speak up.
&x201C;Why do I&x2026;feel as though&x2026;the two of them have a very unusual relationship?&x201D;
Secretary Ho rubbed his forehead as he felt that he was coming down with a headache. How was he going to resolve this situation when the principal dragged Jiang Yuning out of the banquet hall in front of everyone?
Should he say that they had gone to the bathroom together?
At this time, at the back alley of the hotel where it was completely dark with no one around them, Lu Jingzhi pushed Jiang Yuning against the wall as he looked into her eyes.
&x201C;You did not suffer at all?&x201D;
&x201C;Second Brother, if you drag me out like this, everyone will be suspicious of us!&x201D; Jiang Yuning pouted as she expressed her dissatisfaction at Lu Jingzhi&x2019;s behaviour.
&x201C;Is that so? I don&x2019;t think that matters at all,&x201D; Lu Jingzhi replied as he lifted her chin and forced Jiang Yuning to look into his eyes. &x201C;Grandpa Lu gave me the permission to do this.&x201D;
&x201C;Grandpa Lu said that he would give me a year to prove myself to him!&x201D;
&x201C;Did I say that I would not give you time? Huh?&x201D; Lu Jingzhi replied before he kissed Jiang Yuning on her lips in an aggressive manner. After he was finally satisfied, he looked at Jiang Yuning before he said, &x201C;You are always hiding all your injuries from me.&x201D;
&x201C;I did not! I really would not dare to!&x201D; Jiang Yuning quickly raised her hand as though she was swearing that she was telling the truth. &x201C;Second Brother, I am really very cold now.&x201D;
&x201C;I will check your whole body when we get home tonight!&x201D;
As soon as Lu Jingzhi was done speaking, he led Jiang Yuning out of the dark alley. However, Jiang Yuning&x2019;s makeup was already ruined and her lipstick was smudged. Anyone would be able to guess what happened as soon as they saw the both of them.
&x201C;Sob. Sob. I do not want to go back into the banquet hall&x2026;&x201D;
However, Jiang Yuning did not have a choice.
Everyone&x2019;s eyes were focused on the both of them as soon as they returned to the banquet hall.
As they focused on the wedding ring on Lu Jingzhi&x2019;s finger, they quickly assumed that this was&x2026;
Did Lu Jingzhi come to the filming set because they are having an underground relationship?
Was he so dedicated?
At this time, Jiang Yuning&x2019;s face was flushed red. Lu Jingzhi looked at everyone around them and he quickly took the wedding ring that he was wearing around his neck before he wore it on Jiang Yuning&x2019;s ring finger in a calm manner. It was not difficult for an outsider to see that this wedding ring was a set.
Everyone was shocked.
They could not hide it any longer.
At this time, Jiang Yuning took a deep breath before she held Lu Jingzhi&x2019;s hand in front of everyone and said in a serious manner, &x201C;Everyone, let&x2019;s do this all over again. Meet my husband, Lu Jingzhi.&x201D;
At this time, Jiang Yuning could hear the sound of spoons and chopsticks dropping to the ground.
This was shocking!
This was absolutely shocking news!
&x201C;So, both of you are not having an underground relationship?&x201D;
&x201C;Um&x2026;certainly not. However, we do not want to publicize our relationship yet because of his identity. Therefore, I hope that everyone can do us a favor and keep this matter a secret. Please keep this a secret for my sake!&x201D;
Everyone felt that it was really difficult to recover from this shocking revelation.
It turned out that their Sister Yuning was the daughter-in-law of the prestigious Lu family?
Jiang Yuning was unexpectedly low-key when she was already married into the Lu family!
&x201C;Sister Yuning, you can rest assured that we will definitely keep your secret but&x2026;aren&x2019;t you really lucky?&x201D;
&x201C;Yes! You are really very lucky!&x201D;
&x201C;Congratulations, Sister Yuning&x2026;you are so lucky to have married such a good man.&x201D;
When Lu Jingzhi heard everyone&x2019;s words, he held Jiang Yuning&x2019;s hand before he patted her gently on her head and said, &x201C;She did not marry well. In fact, I am the fortunate one to have been able to marry her.&x201D;
