After returning to Luo City, Lu Jingzhi instructed Secretary Ho to send Jiang Yuning back to the Royal Dragon Villa immediately.
At this juncture, Jiang Yuning knew that it would be very inconvenient for her to appear in public with Lu Jingzhi. Therefore, she agreed to go home immediately.
Vera kept calling Jiang Yuning and when her call finally got through, she knew that Jiang Yuning had already come down from the mountain.
&x201C;I will come and pick you up at nine o&x2019;clock in the morning tomorrow for your commercial shoot and interview for your newest endorsement,&x201D; Vera said in an indifferent and ruthless manner over the other end of the line.
&x201C;Are you trying to hold back something else that you want to say?&x201D;
The both of them had already worked together for so long. Therefore, Jiang Yuning could tell that Vera was holding her breath as she was trying to hold her anger in.
&x201C;Didn&x2019;t I tell you to be careful? Didn&x2019;t I tell you not to get caught on camera at all? Fortunately, no one photographed you and the second young master Lu together. If that happened, then things would definitely get more complicated. Let me tell you something. The netizens will definitely have something negative to say no matter what it is. If you really do not want to postpone the announcement of your marriage, then you better stop acting like this. You are really testing my patience!&x201D; Vera could not stop herself from losing her temper over the phone. &x201C;Don&x2019;t you know that Gu Hanwei&x2019;s team and fans are trying really hard to get to you?&x201D;
&x201C;Vera, calm down.&x201D;
&x201C;You want me to calm down? Do you know that Gu Hanwei is also trying to find out a lot of information about you? He has also been trying to contact you through various different platforms because he wants to apologize to you. I really do not know what else we can do anymore. So, can you please stop creating trouble for yourself?&x201D; Vera could not stop reprimanding Jiang Yuning. &x201C;I am telling you that Gu Hanwei is really trying very hard to force you to become the first female lead for the movie,
&x201C;Vera, you don&x2019;t have to worry too much. There is no need for you to make any changes to the work that you are planning to accept or arrange for me. There is no need for us to avoid anything. Vera, you understand my character very well. You know that I will not be awkward or feel embarrassed just because of something like that. Moreover, we are just waiting for the perfect opportunity to make an official announcement about my relationship with Second Brother,&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied in a serious manner. &x201C;You don&x2019;t have to be angry just because of Gu Hanwei and his team. You have already been an agent for so long. Shouldn&x2019;t you be desensitized towards this kind of situation already?&x201D;
&x201C;Hello, sister! I am also a human being. I have a lot of desires and emotions. Don&x2019;t I have the right to get angry when I meet any brain-dead and ridiculous people?&x201D; Vera replied angrily. After pausing for a short while, she finally said, &x201C;How is this any different from when you first started out again?&x201D;
&x201C;One year ago, the netizens would be criticizing and insulting me for things that are much worse than this. So, how can a love line hurt me in any way?&x201D; Jiang Yuning sneered as she replied in an indifferent manner.
&x201C;I am now certain that you are someone who had experienced much worse than this. Okay, since you are not affected by this matter at all, then I will not worry anymore. I will see you in the morning tomorrow. Let me ask you one last thing. How is the second young master Lu&x2019;s friend?&x201D;
&x201C;They are still trying to rescue him.&x201D;
&x201C;Alright then. You should try and comfort the second young master Lu as much as you can. Even though he always looks very cool, I think he will definitely be in a lot of pain.&x201D;
&x201C;Yes.&x201D; Jiang Yuning nodded.
No matter what it was, he was still human.
After hanging up the phone, Jiang Yuning gazed at her cell phone with a blank expression on her face. There was nothing that she could do even though she was worried.
After that, Jiang Yuning fell asleep on the sofa because she was already exhausted from the volunteer work and bumpy ride home.
When she finally woke up, she realized that the lights in the living room were turned on.
Lu Jingzhi was lying down on the sofa next to her as he hugged her tightly in his arms.
As soon as Jiang Yuning moved, the person beside her woke up immediately.
&x201C;Did I wake you up?&x201D;
&x201C;It&x2019;s okay. I was not in deep sleep anyway,&x201D; Lu Jingzhi hugged her as they sat up on the sofa.
&x201C;We managed to save him.&x201D; Lu Jingzhi knew what she wanted to ask so he took the initiative to explain the situation to her. &x201C;We almost lost him a few times. However, he finally came back when his ex-girlfriend showed up and said a few words to him.&x201D;
&x201C;That means they are still in love,&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied as she leaned against Lu Jingzhi&x2019;s warm and sturdy chest as she listened to his steady heartbeat. &x201C;Second Brother, you will not get hurt so badly, right?&x201D;
Lu Jingzhi was silent for a few seconds before he replied, &x201C;Almost&x2026;&x201D;
&x201C;What do you mean?&x201D;
Fortunately, he chose to enter politics in the end. Otherwise, the woman in his arms right now would really belong to someone else.
&x201C;It&x2019;s nothing. Don&x2019;t you have to work tomorrow? Why don&x2019;t you go back to bed now? I will bring you to see him when you are free to next day.&x201D;
Jiang Yuning lowered her head as she touched her stomach before she said, &x201C;Second Brother, I am hungry. I fell asleep earlier&x2026;and I am really very hungry now.&x201D;
&x201C;What do you feel like eating?&x201D; Lu Jingzhi asked as he rolled up his sleeves and entered the kitchen.
Jiang Yuning hurriedly followed behind as she said, &x201C;Can I make a request?&x201D;
Lu Jingzhi raised his brows as he turned around to look at her. &x201C;Are you still so picky in the middle of the night?&x201D;
&x201C;Hey! Don&x2019;t I have any human rights just because I can&x2019;t cook?&x201D;
In fact, this was a very strange fact about Jiang Yuning. She was a very intelligent and ingenious person but she could not cook at all. No matter how hard she tried, the food that she made would always taste different.
However, she had a very good appetite.
This was the reason why Vera always said that she was born to enjoy the life of a young mistress.
Jiang Yuning was not cut out to do any housework at all.
Early the next morning, Vera arrived at the Royal Dragon Villa to pick Jiang Yuning up to participate in her commercial shoot and interview for her newest endorsement.
After Jiang Yuning got into the car, Vera handed her cell phone over to her before she said, &x201C;Take a look at this.&x201D;
&x201C;What is this?&x201D; Jiang Yuning asked with a doubtful expression on her face as she took the cell phone from Vera. After scrolling through a few pages, Jiang Yuning suddenly asked, &x201C;Isn&x2019;t this Gu Hanwei&x2019;s social media profile? Why are you showing me this?&x201D;
&x201C;Take a good look at the content that he posted recently,&x201D; Vera replied in frustration as she rolled her eyes at Jiang Yuning. &x201C;He talked about apologizing, he talked about an expired train ticket, and he even talked about the movie
Jiang Yuning returned Vera&x2019;s cell phone to her as she replied helplessly, &x201C;Well, there is nothing that I can do if that is what they want to think.&x201D;
&x201C;But his fans are also taking the initiative to leave comments on your social media profile now!&x201D;
At this time, Jiang Yuning logged into her social media account and she saw that Gu Hanwei&x2019;s fans had indeed left quite a number of comments on her page.
It felt really familiar.
&x201C;I think that Gu Hanwei is just commemorating his ex-girlfriend. Things might not be as complicated as you make it out to be.&x201D;
&x201C;I really wish that his fans think the same way as you,&x201D; Vera yelled immediately. &x201C;I can&x2019;t believe the both of you are going to attend the charity dinner event together. I think that Gu Hanwei&x2019;s team and fans will definitely be up to no good on that day. You must have done something to him in your past life. I really do not know what to do anymore.&x201D;
&x201C;Also, do you remember the fan page that someone had created in support of the love line between the childhood sweethearts? Recently, someone started spreading rumors that the both of you have already broken up&x2026;&x201D;
Jiang Yuning: &x201C;&x2026;&x201D;
&x201C;Why? What did I do?&x201D;
&x201C;They feel that you are leaving too many things uncertain regarding your relationship with the film emperor, Gu Hanwei. Moreover, there are just too many doubtful points with regards to this matter. First of all, the fact that Gu Hanwei arranged for his assistant to visit you at your filming location. Secondly, the fact that you denied making any contact with the director and producer of
After listening to Vera&x2019;s words, Jiang Yuning reflected on herself. It seemed as though she had really made things very difficult for the fans of the love line with her childhood sweetheart. In fact, it was actually pretty incredible for them to last that long without any materials to support their beliefs at all.
