&x201C;And yes, Yuning lied to you. She did not only lie to you but she also tried to please you at the expense of handing over all of her assets to you. She knew that there was no need for her to do that at all. However, she only did it because she knew that I would never change my mind once I have decided on something. Yuning knows me very well and she only lied to you and tried to please you because she wanted to ease the tension between us.&x201D;
&x201C;Moreover, you are not the only person she tried to please. Do you know how much Yuning have done for the Lu family? She also did her best to please the rest of the Lu family. She was so tired when she was busy filming before this and she had already stayed up for a few days but she rushed back to the Lu family mansion as soon as she could, just so that she could give your youngest grandson the acupuncture treatment that he needs.&x201D;
&x201C;Grandpa, we have no other intentions.&x201D;
Grandpa Lu: &x201C;&x2026;&x201D;
At this time, the old man did not know what else to say. He was completely shocked when he looked at Lu Jingzhi.
Even though both the grandfather and grandson had never been very close, they had not alienated one another before.
However, Grandpa Lu finally learnt that it was not that his grandson had no thoughts or complaints over the years.
His mother had died of an illness and his father simply left them when he was young. Over the years, Lu Jingzhi had gritted his teeth and suffered all by himself without expressing his feelings or emotions to his family members at all. Therefore, Grandpa Lu felt that his grandson was simply calm and introverted, and that was the reason why he did not say much at all. However, it was only at this moment that he finally understood that he had never asked his grandson what he wanted.
He had never asked Lu Jingzhi what his thoughts were.
He had never asked Lu Jingzhi about his preference.
As for what Lu Jingzhi said, he should have just asked his grandsons whether any one of them was interested in Jiang Yuning instead of directly arranging for Lu Zongye to be engaged to her without considering anything else.
&x201C;Have you&x2026;ever blamed Grandpa?&x201D; the old man was silent for a while before he asked Lu Jingzhi this question.
&x201C;Yes, I felt wronged and I blamed you for it,&x201D; Lu Jingzhi replied truthfully.
&x201C;So, you and that girl&x2026;will never separate?&x201D;
Lu Jingzhi shook his head without any hesitation at all. &x201C;Perhaps you do not understand what I am feeling right now, but for the thirteen years that I lived without her, I felt as though there had always been a hole in my heart.&x201D;
At this time, Jiang Yuning was pacing back and forth anxiously outside the study room because she knew that the old man had thrown something at Lu Jingzhi. This was because she heard the sound of something falling but it was a muffled noise before the item finally fell and rolled on the ground. Therefore, Jiang Yuning was certain that Grandpa Lu had thrown something at Lu Jingzhi&x2019;s body.
Why was the old man so violent?
After the grandfather and grandson were done speaking, Lu Jingzhi came out of the study room and immediately took Jiang Yuning&x2019;s hand before leading her out of the Lu family mansion.
Everything happened so quickly and Jiang Yuning did not have time to react at all.
Did this mean that their negotiation had failed?
Jiang Yuning did not react until their car finally left the Lu family mansion. After that, she turned around and look at Lu Jingzhi before she asked, &x201C;Grandpa Lu did not understand at all, am I right? Was he very angry? Is that why he hit you with something? I heard it.&x201D;
&x201C;Why do we need to get him to understand? There are so many things that can never be understood in this life,&x201D; Lu Jingzhi replied Jiang Yuning&x2019;s question immediately. However, he had a very straight and indifferent expression on his face at this time.
&x201C;But, I&x2026;I do not want you to lose your grandfather.&x201D;
&x201C;Who said that I am going to lose my grandfather? There is no way that a relationship connected by blood can be so easily dissolved. We just need to give him some time, okay?&x201D;
Jiang Yuning nodded before she calmed herself down. Perhaps she was too anxious.
Moreover, immediately after his argument with Lu Jingzhi, the old man decided to get on a plane and leave Luo City immediately. Why should he stay and watch them if he did not want to?
He did not know why he was so angry. He knew that he could not change anything anymore. Furthermore, it was impossible for him to ask them to get a divorce. However, there were some things that he could not bring himself to accept. What was even worse was the fact that Jiang Yuning had not even achieved anything for herself yet!
He left in such a hasty manner and he did not even get the opportunity to see his youngest grandson.
As soon as he thought about it, Grandpa Lu felt so frustrated that he went back to the Lu family mansion immediately.
&x201C;Ahh! Grandpa, didn&x2019;t you leave already?&x201D; Chen Jingshu asked in surprise as she pushed her wheelchair towards the old man when she saw him back at the Lu family mansion.
&x201C;If one grandson is disobedient, I still have another grandson!&x201D; the old man replied as he pouted like a child.
&x201C;Grandpa, to be honest, it is not that you do not like Yuning at all. So, why can&x2019;t you just give them your blessings?&x201D;
&x201C;I am angry! I am so angry at Lu Jingzhi and myself! For so many years, he kept everything to himself and he did not speak to me or ask me for anything at all. He made it seem as though I have never cared about him before!&x201D; the old man said angrily as he sat down on the sofa. &x201C;Six years ago, he was only twenty-three years old! Where did he get eight hundred million yuan all by himself without even asking for help from the Lu family?
&x201C;I am so angry! I am so mad that this child would always keep everything to himself and he would always suffer on his own ever since he was a young boy. Even if I did not take his feelings into consideration in the past, if he spoke up to me about the situation of the Jiang family six years ago, I would not have stood by and watched without doing anything at all!
&x201C;I am really very angry right now. I was so furious just now, I even hit him.&x201D;
&x201C;What did you hit him with?&x201D; Chen Jingshu hurriedly asked.
At this time, Lu Jingzhi had already returned to the Royal Dragon Villa with the little descendant.
Halfway through the journey home, Jiang Yuning received a text message from Chen Jingshu telling her that second brother definitely had an injury on his leg.
Therefore, immediately after entering the living room, Jiang Yuning asked Lu Jingzhi to sit down before she squatted down next to him and lifted up his trousers.
There was a big bruise right below his left knee.
&x201C;What are you so silly, Lu Jingzhi? Why didn&x2019;t you avoid it when Grandpa tried to hit you?&x201D;
Lu Jingzhi stared at the girl who was squatting on the ground next to him before he reached out his hand and patted her gently on her head. &x201C;Well, I didn&x2019;t really care at that time. Oh! You are calling me by name now?&x201D;
&x201C;Why? Why can&x2019;t I call you by your full name?&x201D; Jiang Yuning asked as she leaned against Lu Jingzhi as she blew at his knees gently. &x201C;Does it hurt? I really do not understand why you have to argue with the old man. You should just let him come at me directly!&x201D;
Lu Jingzhi could not help but sigh when he saw the distressed look on Jiang Yuning&x2019;s face.
After that, he picked her up and hugged her in his arms as he said, &x201C;I did not only argue with Grandpa because of our relationship. There has always been an unresolved conflict between Grandpa and myself.&x201D;
Jiang Yuning calmed down a little but she could still feel her heart hurting at this time.
&x201C;Well, in future, you don&x2019;t have to keep everything to yourself anymore. We are now an officially married couple and everyone already knows about us!&x201D;
Therefore, it was necessary for them to have a good &x2018;sleep&x2019; tonight to celebrate.
After the showdown with the old man, the couple did not intend to strike the iron while it was still hot. After all, they did not want to push his limits.
Therefore, the both of them returned to their daily lives and at this time, Jiang Yuning was also busy attending her acting classes and participating in her publicity events and activities.
For the past few days, the media had been constantly testing Jiang Yuning&x2019;s bottom line because they wanted to find out more information about her relationship with Lu Jingzhi. It had always been normal for celebrities to be more magnanimous after they make their relationship public and they would usually be willing to discuss some topics in an open manner.
However, Jiang Yuning had already made herself very clear ever since the charity dinner and she already said that she would not be responding to any questions from the media and reporters about her husband.
She would not disclose any information about her private life with her second brother.
Everything seemed to be in the same state as it was even before they made their relationship public.
&x201C;Do you think you really need to do this? Even after making your relationship public, there is still no way for you to show your affection at all. What is the difference then?&x201D; Vera asked Jiang Yuning when she picked her up for her event. After that, she could not help but laughed as she said, &x201C;I have already received several invitations for you to appear on variety programs. Um&x2026;the content of the variety programs are suitable for couples, you know&x2026;&x201D;
