What did it mean if Jiang Yuning wanted reduced exposure, nothing on the hot searches and not to appear on variety programs?
Vera was immediately taken aback. &x201C;If that is what you really want, then what is the difference with you being semi-retired instead? Even if your acting skills have already been recognized and even if you are gaining popularity right now, many artistes in the entertainment industry are given roles in movies and drams simply because of their exposure and popularity! If you lose your exposure and fame, then who would care about your acting skills at all?&x201D;
&x201C;In future, I will simply focus on being a drama and movie actress. When I am not in the crew or if I do not have any movies or drama to film, then I will just disappear into the background,&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied immediately.
&x201C;What is the matter with you? You worked so hard just to get where you are today and you finally made it this far and achieved everything that you have today. How can you tell me that you want to simply disappear into the background?&x201D; Vera could not understand what was going on in Jiang Yuning&x2019;s mind at all.
Perhaps no one would be able to understand her at all.
Jiang Yuning&x2019;s reputation and popularity was one of the top in the entertainment industry at the moment but she wanted to withdraw from the headlines at this time?
&x201C;Is it because of the second young master Lu?&x201D;
&x201C;No&x2026;I am doing it for the most important thing in my life.&x201D;
Vera stared at Jiang Yuning as Jiang Yuning stared right back into Vera&x2019;s eyes.
The both of them were silent for a very long time. Vera finally looked away before she said, &x201C;Is this really necessary? You should also remember that my career is also dependent on you.&x201D;
&x201C;Vera, I will still accomplish my goal. I am simply trying to achieve my goal using another way this time.&x201D;
Vera did not say anything but she was obviously very angry at this time. In fact, any agent would find it a little unbearable to retreat when their artiste was so popular.
&x201C;You are always so headstrong and you always completely ignore the feelings of the people who are around you. You always do whatever you want to, whenever you want to and I really do not know what else to say anymore.&x201D;
Jiang Yuning was also very confused at this time and she did not want to refute Vera&x2019;s words.
This was the first time that the both of them had gotten into a serious disagreement ever since they started working together.
After arriving at Xiya Hotel, Jiang Yuning told Vera to go home and rest. After all, she would be attending a private family dinner tonight.
Vera was sulking at this time and she simply drove off as soon as Jiang Yuning got out of the car.
At the Xiya executive presidential suite, Jiang Zhitong was all dressed up and he also prepared gifts for the old master of the Lu family.
&x201C;Yuning, does your father look presentable like this?&x201D; Jiang Zhitong asked Jiang Yuning as he stood in front of the mirror to put on his tie.
&x201C;Dad&x2026;the both of you are already so familiar with one another. You don&x2019;t have to be so nervous!&x201D;
&x201C;Don&x2019;t you know that your father has not met up with any of his close friends for a very long time?&x201D; Jiang Zhitong asked before he straightened out his coat and tidied up his hair. After that, he was finally satisfied. At this time, Jiang Yuning said, &x201C;Alright, we should get going immediately. We are almost out of time.&x201D;
The father and daughter quickly got into the car before they left Xiya Hotel.
Jiang Zhitong could not help but feel a little nervous on the way to the Lu family mansion. &x201C;Yuning, have you ever thought about when you would like your wedding to be? Do you want it to be held during February or March next year? What do you think about that?&x201D;
&x201C;Dad, what about November 15th?&x201D; Jiang Yuning suddenly suggested.
&x201C;Why did you choose that date? Isn&x2019;t that the day that Jingzhi&x2019;s mother passed away? I don&x2019;t think that would be such a good idea.&x201D;
&x201C;Many years ago, second brother lost his home. I want to give him a home again. Moreover, this is also a way for us to commemorate aunt&x2019;s death because I know he misses his mother,&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied in a low voice. She was not really in the mood to talk because of her argument with Vera.
&x201C;I think that it might be a little too rushed but I will discuss this matter with the old man later when the time comes. You should let us know what Jingzhi thinks about this.&x201D;
Jiang Yuning nodded but she was still feeling very heavy in her heart.
In fact, she really valued Vera very much and Vera was just like a sister to her. Jiang Yuning was really not good at arguing with people that she really cared about.
At seven o&x2019;clock that night, neon lights flashed all over the city.
Jiang Zhitong and Jiang Yuning had already arrived at the Lu family mansion. At this time, Lu Jingzhi was already at home waiting for them.
As soon as he saw the little descendant, he knew that something was bothering her at this time.
However, Lu Jingzhi did not ask her about it as the elders were chatting. He simply stared at the little descendant without taking his eyes off her at all.
Of course, Jiang Yuning knew that someone was watching her. She turned around and looked at Lu Jingzhi with a fierce expression on her face, as though she was saying that she would bite him if he continued staring at her.
&x201C;The two of them really scared me to death, especially that young girl! Do you know how courageous she was? She had the audacity to confront me in my study room during Chinese New Year to ask for my permission to like Jingzhi! I was so angry at that time that I was literally choking!&x201D;
At this time, old master Lu was complaining to Jiang Zhitong about what Jiang Yuning had done.
&x201C;Hahaha, you are hilarious, old master Lu. However, I have to admit that I can never catch up to Yuning even though I am her father. In fact, I can understand why she is so crazy and courageous. She did not want to miss out on any more time because the both of them feel as though they have already lost out on enough time.&x201D;
&x201C;I guess that is old master Jiang and my fault then,&x201D; Grandpa Lu said at this time.
The both of them continued chatting enthusiastically and at this time, Lu Jingzhi used his chin to gesture for the little descendant to meet him outside.
Jiang Yuning received his message and she quickly went to the Lu family garden in secret. After a short while, Lu Jingzhi walked up to Jiang Yuning before he hugged her tightly in his arms.
&x201C;Why are you feeling so emotional today?&x201D;
&x201C;I quarreled with Vera,&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied in a concise manner. &x201C;As you know, I enjoy fighting with my enemies but I really do not like arguing with people that I really care about.&x201D;
&x201C;Why did the both of you argue?&x201D;
&x201C;I told her that I wanted to concentrate on making movies and dramas and that I did not want to appear on commercials or variety programs anymore. Otherwise, I will not have time to study and improve myself!&x201D;
Lu Jingzhi did not expose Jiang Yuning but he simply rubbed her head gently before he said, &x201C;I see. It&x2019;s okay, let&x2019;s go in first and we will talk about this matter tonight.&x201D;
&x201C;Second brother, will it be okay if we set our wedding date on November 15th?&x201D;
Lu Jingzhi was stunned for a moment after listening to Jiang Yuning&x2019;s words. His throat became a little tight and he was quiet for a short while before he finally replied, &x201C;Okay.&x201D;
That day, was not only the day that his mother passed away, but it was also the day that Jiang Yuning came to his university to wait for him and it was also the day that he went to the Jiang family mansion to look for Jiang Yuning.
It was the day that they missed out on one another.
Lu Jingzhi knew that Jiang Yuning wanted to permanently heal the deepest scar in his life.
Moreover, he was also certain that his mother in heaven would be very pleased for them to hold their wedding on her death anniversary.
After returning to the living room the young couple told their elders about the wedding date.
The old man initially disagreed because he felt that it was too rushed and he felt that no one should be getting married on a person&x2019;s death anniversary.
However, the old man no longer had any more taboo after listening to Lu Jingzhi&x2019;s explanation and he chose to give in to their wishes instead.
&x201C;Since you are going to join the crew soon, then I guess you are going to hand over all of your wedding preparation work over to your father then?&x201D;
Since Jiang Zhitong had already resigned from his job and since Yunxuan&x2019;s condition was already under control, he would have time to make all the necessary preparations for his daughter.
In fact, Lu Jingzhi had already asked Xu Liangzhou and the rest of the boys to help him to plan the main parts of the wedding. As for the other trivial matters, he had no choice but to trouble the elders of both parties.
Of course, the little descendant should never find out about this matter.
&x201C;Yes, we will have to trouble you,&x201D; Lu Jingzhi replied immediately.
&x201C;Then, I will be the most leisurely bride-to-be.&x201D;
The atmosphere during the dinner was very good. After all, both families had been friends for a very long time and they were very familiar with one another. Besides that, old master Lu and Jiang Zhitong had not seen each other for so many years and they had a lot to catch up on. They even went to the study room to continue chatting after dinner and they asked the young couple to go home by themselves.
On the way back to the Royal Dragon Villa, Jiang Yuning suddenly received a text message from Vera to remind her of her itinerary for tomorrow.
Was Vera really so angry that she could not even be bothered to call her?
