After thinking for a short while, Jiang Yuning replied, &x201C;Who will pick me up tomorrow?&x201D;
They rarely referred to the young paparazzo by name. Therefore, Jiang Yuning could tell that Vera was really angry this time.
Jiang Yuning frowned for a short while and she hesitated for a moment before she sent Vera another text message. &x201C;Vera, can we talk?&x201D;
&x201C;Maybe next time.&x201D;
Jiang Yuning took a deep breath when she saw Vera&x2019;s reply. At this time, she began to reflect on herself as she thought about whether she had been too selfish. However, after thinking about it, Jiang Yuning felt that the problem was not due to her self-declared semi-retirement. After all, she had been working together with Vera for such a long time. Jiang Yuning knew that it was impossible for Vera to be mad at her for no reason at all. Was Vera angry because she rarely showed any care or concern for Vera nowadays?
&x201C;What did Vera say?&x201D; At this time, Lu Jingzhi who had been sitting aside asked as he looked at the little descendant.
&x201C;She refused to communicate and talk to me,&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied as she shrugged helplessly. &x201C;I think I have no choice but to ask Brother Chennan for his help.&x201D;
&x201C;Alright, let me ask you something. Why did you ask for reduced exposure anyway?&x201D; Lu Jingzhi asked as he looked directly into Jiang Yuning&x2019;s eyes. He did not know what was wrong with her but he knew that the sudden change in her attitude at this time was simply too coincidental. &x201C;What did you hear?&x201D;
Lu Jingzhi made the right guess and it was too late for Jiang Yuning to come up with any excuses.
Besides that, Jiang Yuning knew that Lu Jingzhi could always see right through her and even if she wanted to, it was almost impossible to hide anything from him at all.
&x201C;Did grandpa tell you about it?&x201D;
&x201C;That is not important,&x201D; Jiang Yuning interrupted Lu Jingzhi immediately. &x201C;Grandpa told me a lot of things and he never once mentioned anything about wanting us to break up. Of course, there are also some things that I do not agree with him. However, he is right about one thing. I am always a target and weapon that people could use to hurt and harm you. I do not mean that I do not trust you but I do not want to be a tool that others could use against you. My family and friends will always be my top priority.&x201D;
&x201C;So, second brother, I really want to change the way that I am using to pursue my dreams and ambition in the entertainment industry.&x201D;
&x201C;I admit that everything happened very suddenly but you should know that I have always felt inferior ever since the day that we got together. You should know that I have always been worried that I will cause you a lot of trouble. Now that things have already happened, you should let me solve it my own way. Otherwise, I will never be able to get past this hurdle in my own heart.&x201D;
After hearing his little descendant&x2019;s words, Lu Jingzhi stretched his hand before he rubbed the back of her neck gently and said, &x201C;I do not need you to make any compromise for me. I am happy and contented as long as you stay by my side. You can always live the way that you want to.&x201D;
&x201C;This is also the only way that I will be able to do things the way that I want to. Even Vera said that I am very selfish. Isn&x2019;t that enough?&x201D; Jiang Yuning asked as she smiled. After that, Jiang Yuning rubbed LU Jingzhi&x2019;s chest gently before she continued speaking.
&x201C;Second brother, no one can keep giving without getting tired in this life. I know that you love me very much but you must allow me to love you too. We are already married and we are husband and wife. Therefore, the only person that I should protect and look after in this life is you.&x201D;
&x201C;So, let us protect one another, okay?&x201D;
The little descendant said that she was not good at disputes with her own loved ones, but she was actually a very persuasive person. Just a few paragraphs from her had already weakened the original contradiction between the both of them. Moreover, Jiang Yuning also clearly expressed her protective and possessive desire throughout the passage. This was very useful in convincing men, no matter how powerful the man was.
Lu Jingzhi was obviously very happy.
The little descendant belonged to him and he did not love her in vain.
No matter what it was, Lu Jingzhi did not want the little descendant&x2019;s effort and sincerity to go to waste. Therefore, he nodded and said, &x201C;You can do whatever you want to as long as you are happy.&x201D;
&x201C;Actually, I have already made it to the top tier in the entertainment industry. This is also the same reason why anyone who would have reached the peak will show a decline in their position. It is also the same reason why there will be a loss in profits. The transformation will also take some time but it is important for them to bury the transformation line earlier. However, Vera&x2026;&x201D;
Lu Jingzhi hugged the person tightly in his arms before he said, &x201C;Talk everything through, I believe in your friendship. If your friendship is true, then no matter what it is, the both of you will also learn to understand one another.&x201D;
&x201C;I know, but does it work the same way when it came to work? I know that I should not be asking about your work but I cannot just brush it under the covers all the time. I understand where grandpa is coming from and I know that we should not just avoid talking about this topic.&x201D;
&x201C;The transfer order came down very quickly and it is true that there are people who are hoping to take advantage of this situation to rise to the top. However, there is an additional layer of identity when it came to top secret and confidential work.&x201D;
That was all that Lu Jingzhi could tell her.
However, Jiang Yuning was very happy when she heard his words. &x201C;Just wait and see. I do not know how many people are waiting to taunt my man but I am certain that they will be shocked in the end!&x201D;
&x201C;Are you still worried?&x201D;
Jiang Yuning shook her head before she said, &x201C;The news has already come out and they will probably said that I am a nemesis and a curse to you or something. They will probably say that the Lu family&x2019;s fortune and luck will decrease because of me.&x201D;
&x201C;This matter has to be made public.&x201D;
This was because the people would only relaxed and loosen their fear of the Lu family if they were open and transparent.
&x201C;Anyway, I will already be joining the crew for the movie,
&x201C;Yuning, have you ever thought that maybe I am the one who has been bringing you all the bad luck instead?&x201D;
&x201C;Then&x2026;the both of us are in the same boat. So, we should definitely support and help each other out!&x201D;
Jiang Yuning had already gone through darker times so she was not afraid of anything at all.
What&x2019;s more, this was not a very terrible situation.
&x201C;Moreover, if I am more restrained and low-key, then the people in the entertainment industry will feel that there was really something wrong with the Lu family. They will be even more afraid then.&x201D;
With more people trampling all over her, Jiang Yuning can tear them down even more easily.
The husband and wife came to an agreement and they got ready to wash up after going home. However, Jiang Yuning was still very worried about Vera.
Early the next morning, Jiang Yuning sent a text message to Xiao Chennan to ask him about the recent development and progress in their relationship.
However, Xiao Chennan had been busy filming on the mountain and he did not detect anything wrong with his girlfriend at all.
Jiang Yuning thanked him and she could only wait patiently until she had the opportunity to talk to Vera. After all, it would be very rude and disrespectful of her to pry into Vera&x2019;s privacy.
However, Jiang Yuning really did not expect the next time that she would be talking to Vera to be three days later.
At that time, Jiang Yuning had to deal with some materials at Guangying Media.
Vera was holding some documents in her hand as she led a new artiste down the corridor.
When the both of them faced one another, Vera had a very awkward and embarrassed expression on her face. However, after a short moment, she quickly regained her composure and said to Jiang Yuning, &x201C;I will come and find you in a short while.&x201D;
&x201C;Okay, I will be in Director Shen&x2019;s office.&x201D;
Vera nodded before she led the newcomer away.
Jiang Yuning felt very uncomfortable but she did not say anything. Perhaps, things were not as bad as she thought it was.
However, after seeing Shen Yichen, Jiang Yuning knew that Vera was not joking around.
&x201C;Vera asked me for permission to be in charge of another new artiste instead. Did the both of you get into an argument?&x201D;
At this time, Jiang Yuning suddenly did not know what to say.
