After leaving the charity dinner, Jiang Yuning and Lu Jingzhi returned to the Lu family mansion immediately.
It was already late at night and it was very lively on the internet because of the news about Jiang Yuning and Gu Hanwei.
However, Jiang Yuning could not be bothered at all because she instantly felt a lot of pressure as soon as she stepped into the Lu family mansion. She felt that she was digging her own grave.
At this time, Lu Jingzhi was washing up in the bathroom and Jiang Yuning felt very uneasy as she lay in bed.
Therefore, she sent a text message to Vera in the middle of the night, &x201C;Please wish me good luck!&x201D;
Vera was still working overtime at Guangying Media even though it was already late at night because of the request made by the second young master Lu. &x201C;Yuning, please stop causing any more trouble for me! I am already going bald!&x201D;
&x201C;Grandpa Lu will already be coming home tomorrow. I do not know what to say to him&x2026;&x201D;
&x201C;You dare to make your relationship public but you do not know what to say to the old master of the Lu family? You were the one who wanted to do this in the first place but you are afraid now? Yuning, what are you afraid of? You should just face the consequences with courage!&x201D;
Jiang Yuning: &x201C;&x2026;&x201D;
&x201C;I just feel very nervous and uncertain in my heart.&x201D;
&x201C;Hmm&x2026;&x201D; Vera sighed before she tried to comfort Jiang Yuning. &x201C;It&x2019;s no big deal even if the old man tries to cut you off. No matter what it is, the second young master Lu will definitely stay by your side. What are you afraid of then? You should know that the second young master Lu has many more things to confess to his grandfather, such as the eight hundred million yuan&x2026;I believe that the both of you will definitely be able to resolve this.&x201D;
After that, Vera hung up the phone.
Jiang Yuning was left speechless as she stared at the cell phone. At this time, Lu Jingzhi walked into the bedroom, dressed in pajamas as he climbed into bed with his wet hair.
&x201C;What are you thinking about?&x201D;
&x201C;I wonder how Grandpa will react tomorrow&x2026;&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied immediately. &x201C;Second Brother, I&x2026;&x201D;
&x201C;When you talked to Grandpa last time, you did not let me know anything at all. I know that you made him some promises but that was all on your part. I did not agree to anything at all. You have nothing that you need to explain to anyone now. Everything else is up to me,&x201D; Lu Jingzhi replied as he held her hand.
Jiang Yuning was silent and she did not say anything at all.
&x201C;Are you afraid that Grandpa will look down on you?&x201D;
Jiang Yuning nodded.
&x201C;Just look at it this way. If Grandpa asks you to leave me, will you really leave me because of that?&x201D;
&x201C;Of course, not!&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied as she held tightly onto Lu Jingzhi&x2019;s arms immediately.
&x201C;If you have such thick skin, then what else is there to be afraid of?&x201D;
It was just that&x2026;
Anyway, Jiang Yuning had also done her part for the Lu family more than once. Would the old man really ask her to leave?
Jiang Yuning laid down but she was still filled with anxiety.
After speaking to Jiang Yuning, Lu Jingzhi headed back to the bathroom to dry his hair. Based on his understanding of the little descendant, she would definitely be struggling for quite some time before she could finally fall asleep today. However, when he walked back into the bedroom, he found out that Jiang Yuning had already fallen asleep. Didn&x2019;t she say that she was very worried?
However, everyone already knew that they were husband and wife and the little descendant belonged to him alone.
Old Master Lu&x2019;s flight arrived at Luo City early the next morning but he did not arrange for any of his family members to pick his up. He seemed to have done it deliberately to assume a very majestic presence. As soon as he stepped into the Lu family mansion, he stared at the couple sitting in the living room without letting them leave his sight at all.
Jiang Yuning did not dare to raise her head at all. She did not have the confidence to do so because she did not keep her promise to the old man and the only thing that she did successfully was to hand over her assets to him.
At this time, their marriage certificate was placed on top of the coffee table in the living room.
As soon as old master Lu saw the marriage certificate, he felt that his whole body was shaking uncontrollably.
&x201C;Jiang Yuning, have you forgotten what you promised me? Didn&x2019;t you tell me that you will not let Jingzhi know about your feelings for him within this year? You told me that you will prove your ability to me and that you will withdraw from the entertainment circle after a year. Look at what you did in the end?&x201D; Grandpa Lu asked Jiang Yuning as he slammed his hand on the coffee table.
&x201C;Grandpa, it&x2019;s me.&x201D; At this time, Lu Jingzhi stretched out his hand to hold Jiang Yuning&x2019;s small fist as he tried to reassure her that everything would be fine.
&x201C;Do you think I am going to let you off easily? I told you to get to know this girl. I didn&x2019;t ask you to get married to her!&x201D;
&x201C;Grandpa, I have something to tell you.&x201D;
The old man glanced at the both of them but he was so furious that he did not know what else to say at this time. Therefore, he got up from the sofa before he walked towards the study room and said, &x201C;Get in here&x2026;&x201D;
&x201C;Go and wait for me in the room&x2026;&x201D; Lu Jingzhi replied as he squeezed the palm of her hand gently. After that, Lu Jingzhi let go of her hand before he walked towards the study room.
In fact, Jiang Yuning was not worried at all but she felt very confused. She knew exactly what Lu Jingzhi was going to say but she did not want him to quarrel with Grandpa Lu because of her.
&x201C;Don&x2019;t worry. There are somethings that can only be solved by Second Brother.&x201D; At this time, Chen Jingshu comforted Jiang Yuning as she patted her gently on her back.
In the study room, the old man was sitting in front of his desk.
There were some bad premonitions in his heart at this time. For instance, he suddenly recalled the time when Lu Jingzhi had asked him why he did not choose him as Jiang Yuning&x2019;s fianc&xE9; instead of Lu Zongye.
The old man felt his legs softened and he turned around to look at Lu Jingzhi.
&x201C;So, what are you going to say to me? What is it that you want to tell me?&x201D; Obviously, the old man was already mentally prepared for what his grandson was going to tell him. Otherwise, he was afraid that he would really suffer from a heart attack.
&x201C;Do you remember asking me why I decided to enlist and join the army immediately after I graduated from university?&x201D;
As soon as he heard his words, the old man turned around and looked at Lu Jingzhi in shock.
&x201C;Yes, so was it because&x2026;&x201D;
&x201C;Yes, it is all because of her.&x201D;
The old man was so furious when he heard Lu Jingzhi&x2019;s reply and he immediately picked up the inkstone on his table before throwing it directly at Lu Jingzhi. However, he regretted his actions immediately because he only hit Lu Jingzhi on his leg.
He was really furious at this time.
&x201C;Six years ago, I was also the one who helped the Jiang family to clear their debt of eight hundred million yuan.&x201D;
&x201C;When my mother passed away, I also thought&x2026;I also thought of asking her to elope with me.&x201D;
&x201C;Lu Jingzhi! I really would not have expected you to be even more shameless than her!&x201D; the old man yelled at him angrily. &x201C;Don&x2019;t you know that she was your brother&x2019;s fianc&xE9;e at that time? Do you know&x2026;&x201D;
&x201C;The only reason why I had any self-restraints at all was because I knew that I should not be in love with my brother&x2019;s fianc&xE9;e. Do you know how much Yuning had suffered because of Lu Zongye? Do you know how many years I suffered because she was engaged to him when I was in love with her? Even though I tried to forget her by joining the army, I could not forget her at all. I missed her even more.&x201D;
The old man could only tremble as he listened to Lu Jingzhi.
He really did not expect that his grandson, the heir of the Lu family and the hope of the Lu family, would actually be trapped in a whirlpool of emotions.
&x201C;When did the both of you get together?&x201D;
&x201C;More than one year ago, one week after Lu Zongye and Jiang Yuning called off their engagement.&x201D;
&x201C;So, the both of you have already been together for so long and that girl actually lied to me! And you! In order to get me to match you up with Yuning, you actually lied that you were interested in a married woman!&x201D;
Both the grandfather and grandson continued quarreling and their faces were flushed red at this time.
If Grandpa Lu had a second inkstone next to him, he would have thrown it directly at Lu Jingzhi&x2019;s face.
&x201C;If you treat me like an ordinary person, if you did not have high hopes for me ever since I was a child, if you remember that I also have my own emotions and desires, then you would not have ignored my emotions or desires ever since I was a young boy! If you took the time to actually ask me what I want, I could have given you an answer a long time ago. No matter what it is, I want Jiang Yuning.&x201D;
