There was an awkward silence in the Lu family living room and at this time, Third Uncle Lu&x2019;s mood was very complicated.
What exactly was the truth?
&x201C;Jingshu&x2026;.Jingzhi, he&x2026;what exactly is going on between him and Yuning?&x201D;
After hesitating for a moment, Third Uncle Lu finally asked Chen Jingshu the question that he had been asking himself.
It was understandable for Lu Jingzhi to step forward to clarify the situation and defend Jiang Yuning. However, how could Lu Jingzhi say that Jiang Yuning was his heart and flesh? It seemed as though the relationship between the two of them was not as simple as it seemed.
Chen Jingshu was stunned for a moment when she heard Third Uncle Lu&x2019;s question. In fact, she had also been very shocked and surprised when Second Brother said that earlier.
Heart and flesh. Lu Jingzhi must have known the significance of those words.
This showed that Lu Jingzhi really loved and cared deeply for Jiang Yuning.
There was no room for any vagueness in his heart. He would not let anyone off, not even his own family members, if they misunderstood or caused Jiang Yuning any distress.
&x201C;Third Uncle, I will tell you something but I hope that you will not tell Grandpa about this matter. Six years ago, when the Jiang family was facing bankruptcy, Second Brother was the one who gathered eight hundred million yuan to help settle the Jiang family&x2019;s debts.&x201D;
&x201C;Therefore, I don&x2019;t think that any outsiders will ever be able to understand the feelings or relationship between Second Brother and Yuning. To put it bluntly, none of us, including Grandpa, would ever be able to affect or spoil their relationship at all. That is why Second Brother would never believe that Yuning was using Jingqi just because she wanted to please you and Grandpa.&x201D;
&x201C;To Second Brother, Yuning&x2019;s existence is exactly what Jingqi&x2019;s existence means to you. Do you understand what I am trying to say?&x201D;
Third Uncle Lu was shocked after listening to Chen Jingshu&x2019;s explanation.
&x201C;When did their relationship start?&x201D;
Chen Jingshu shook her head. Only the two of them would know the exact moment when their relationship officially began.
&x201C;Second Brother was already willing to give up everything that he had to save Yuning six years ago. How important do you think she is to him?&x201D;
&x201C;Anyway, Third Uncle, I think you can&x2019;t blame Second Brother for getting angry because you were a little too much when you overreacted and wronged Yuning because of Jingqi this time&x2026;&x201D;
Third Uncle Lu was very confused at this time. He felt as though his mind was completely blank and he could not think at all.
At eight o&x2019;clock that night, Jiang Yuning was resting on the sofa and reciting her lines when she heard the sound of the door opening. She turned around to look at the door and at this time, she saw the man who always made her heart skip a beat entering the living room.
&x201C;Are you done with your meeting?&x201D; Jiang Yuning asked even though she knew the truth.
Lu Jingzhi took off his coat before he sat down on the sofa next to Jiang Yuning. After that, he reached out his arms before hugging her tightly. &x201C;What did you do today?&x201D;
&x201C;I was resting and replenishing my strength, then I was busy reciting my lines after dinner,&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied as she smiled.
&x201C;Don&x2019;t you feel as though you have been seriously wronged?&x201D;
&x201C;I don&x2019;t feel any grievances at all because I know that&x2026;you will definitely fight for justice on my behalf,&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied as she rested her head against Lu Jingzhi&x2019;s chest. &x201C;Strangely enough, both of us have not been married for a very long time but it seems as though we can read each other&x2019;s minds already. Do you think that this is telepathy, Second Brother?&x201D;
&x201C;Yes.&x201D; Lu Jingzhi nodded.
&x201C;Then&x2026;don&x2019;t be angry any longer. Otherwise, I would also feel very upset.&x201D;
It was obvious that Jiang Yuning was trying to appease her man but Lu Jingzhi did not know why he could feel his anger disappearing because of Jiang Yuning&x2019;s words. It seemed as though everything was fine now that Jiang Yuning was in his arms once again.
&x201C;I am no longer angry.&x201D;
&x201C;Then help me recite my lines!&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied as she sat up before handing the drama script over to Lu Jingzhi. &x201C;Help me with this romantic scene.&x201D;
Lu Jingzhi could not help feeling a little jealous when he thought about his little descendant acting in a romantic scene with another man in the drama
&x201C;This&x2026;&x201D; Jiang Yuning could not help but laughed out loud when she saw Lu Jingzhi&x2019;s reaction. &x201C;Second Brother, are you jealous?&x201D;
&x201C;I don&x2019;t have to be&x2026;&x201D;
&x201C;Second Brother, did you take a good look at my script? There are no romantic scenes in the entire drama. Hou Da has already removed even the last remaining hugging scene in the drama because of me. Otherwise, why else do you think I would have done so much to help whitewash Su Jinhang&x2019;s reputation in the first place?&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied smugly. &x201C;I know that you are the king of jealousy and that is why I requested for Hou Da to remove all the romantic and intimate scenes between the two lead characters. But Second Brother, it is really difficult for me to pick a drama because you are always jealous!&x201D;
Although Lu Jingzhi did not laugh, he could not stop the corner of his lips from curving up.
&x201C;I was just kidding with you, silly! You don&x2019;t have to help me recite my lines.&x201D;
Lu Jingzhi would only show this side of him in front of Jiang Yuning.
Of course, Jiang Yuning was the only one who would have the courage to say that Lu Jingzhi was acting silly.
&x201C;But Second Brother, I really think that it is such a pity to give up on Jingqi just like that&x2026;&x201D;
&x201C;According to that scumbag doctor, it seems as though Jingqi has already shown some improvements,&x201D; Lu Jingzhi replied.
After listening to Lu Jingzhi&x2019;s words, Jiang Yuning stood up before she made a bold suggestion: &x201C;Second Brother, why don&x2019;t we sneak Jingqi out of the Lu family mansion for his treatments, then?&x201D;
Lu Jingzhi glared at Jiang Yuning before he snorted. &x201C;Third Uncle has already treated you like that, so why are you still helping him?&x201D;
&x201C;I am not helping Third Uncle,&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied helplessly. Third Uncle Lu was Third Uncle Lu, and Lu Jingqi was still Lu Jingqi. Even though Third Uncle Lu had already misunderstood her intentions, she could not stop herself from helping Lu Jingqi when she knew that she could do so for him.
Lu Jingzhi stopped Jiang Yuning at this time. &x201C;I will make the necessary arrangements for this matter. You don&x2019;t have to intervene in this matter anymore. Why are you still persevering when other people are already asking you to mind your own business?&x201D;
Jiang Yuning did not say anything else because she knew that there was no way she could change his mind. At this time, both of them started kissing on the sofa and they eventually ended up in bed together.
Lu Jingzhi acted in a moderate manner because he knew that the little descendant had not rested well for the past few days.
However, they would not have expected to receive two unexpected guests at Royal Dragon Villa early the next morning.
At this time, Lu Jingzhi was preparing to leave for work but after exiting his bedroom, he heard Sister Liang informing him that there were guests waiting for them downstairs. Lu Jingzhi quickly grabbed his coat before heading downstairs.
Third Uncle Lu and Chen Jingshu were waiting in the living room.
In fact, based on the relationship between Lu Jingzhi and Jiang Yuning, it would not have been difficult to guess that Lu Jingzhi was also living at Royal Dragon Villa.
Therefore, Lu Jingzhi was not surprised to see Third Uncle Lu and Chen Jingshu at all.
Chen Jingshu and Third Uncle Lu looked around the villa as soon as they entered. At this time, they could see that the villa was full of Jiang Yuning&x2019;s belongings. Her drama script, her commercial proposals, her bags, and and her clothing were scattered all over the place. It was clear that Jiang Yuning lived here.
&x201C;Please have a seat.&x201D; Lu Jingzhi did not see the need to hide anything from both of them. Although he did not want to see Third Uncle Lu, he had already calmed down a little after talking to the little descendant last night.
&x201C;I&x2026;came to apologize to Yuning,&x201D; Third Uncle Lu said in a serious manner. &x201C;I know that I had hurt her feelings because of my prejudice and I feel really bad about it&x2026;&x201D;
&x201C;I think that it would be better for you to tell this to Yuning face-to-face instead. I have to get to work already.&x201D; After that, Lu Jingzhi got up to get ready to leave for work, but he gave instructions to Sister Liang before leaving the villa. &x201C;It is time to wake the young mistress up.&x201D;
&x201C;I got it, Young Master.&x201D; Sister Liang nodded before heading to the bedroom on the second floor.
At this time, Lu Jingzhi left both of them waiting in the living room by themselves.
It seemed as though he did not need to explain anything.
After all, this was his private affairs and there was no need for him to explain anything to anyone.
As for Third Uncle Lu&x2019;s apology, it was completely up to Jiang Yuning if she wanted to accept his apology.
However, Third Uncle Lu was still shocked because he did not expect Jiang Yuning and Lu Jingzhi to actually be cohabitating.
To think that they were both so good at pretending!
