Chapter 16: You Cannot Even be Compared to A Dog
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
After a forty minutes’ drive, Lu Jingzhi’s black car finally turned into the garden of the Lu family mansion. The butler quickly rushed forward to greet and receive Lu Jingzhi, but he was extremely surprised when he saw Jiang Yuning getting out of the car.
“Second Young Master. Miss Jiang.” The butler greeted them respectfully although he felt that it was extremely strange for Miss Jiang to appear with the second young master.
“Where is Lu Zongye?” Jiang Yuning asked without any hesitation.
“He is waiting for you in the living room,” the butler replied respectfully before opening the door for Jiang Yuning.
“You should go in first,” Lu Jingzhi directed Jiang Yuning before using his eyes to indicate to the butler that he should not go in to report his arrival.
Although the butler was suspicious and curious about what was going on, he followed Lu Jingzhi’s instructions and stayed outside.
Jiang Yuning turned around to look at Lu Jingzhi before entering the mansion. When she entered the living room, she saw Lu Zongye laughing and chatting with his mother on the sofa.
“Shrewd woman, which man were you busy accompanying today? I thought that you cared about your mentally retarded grandfather. To think that you made me wait for you for the whole day,” Lu Zongye said as soon as he saw Jiang Yuning. He stood up and wanted to grab hold of Jiang Yuning, but he was stopped by his mother before he could reach her.
“It’s not that I am picking sides Yuning, but Zongye called you early in the morning. Why are you only here now?” Li Shutong asked as she signaled for Lu Zongye to back off and not ruin their plan.
Jiang Yuning stared at both the mother and son who were so full of themselves. She was extremely sick of them. No, she was disgusted by their actions.
She did not want to spend a second longer with either of them.
However, her idol was standing outside, watching and listening to them, so she had to put on a good show for him.
“I did not expect that the Lu family would so kind as to welcome me back again,” Jiang Yuning deliberately replied in a humble manner.
“You must have been so delighted the moment you hear that I will marry you. After all, the Jiang family had already lost their prestigious status and reputation for so many years. You should be very excited that you finally have this opportunity to marry into the Lu family after plotting for so many years. Am I right?” Lu Zongye said arrogantly as soon as he heard Jiang Yuning flattering him.
“Yes,” Jiang Yuning nodded and replied reluctantly.
“Yuning, since you still intend to marry into the Lu family, then let me say a few things to you. After all, the Jiang family’s standing has not been great for the past few years. I am only saying this so that the both of you can have a long and happy marriage in the future. Don’t you agree with me?” Li Shutong said as she put down the teacup in her hand and arranged her posture elegantly, taking on the role of an elder.
“Alright then, you can speak. I will listen,” Jiang Yuning said as she sat down on the sofa opposite her.
“First of all, you and Zongye are from two totally different family backgrounds. Once you marry into the Lu family, you have to obey all our virtues and family rules. Everything your husband says counts and you would have to put him first regardless of what you do. I think you understand this point very well yourself, right?”
“Secondly, after you marry into the Lu family, I will not stop you from furthering your career in acting. However, you will have to hand over all of your income and earnings to me. After all, the entertainment industry is very chaotic and I do not want you to be out spending money and doing things that are frowned upon. You must understand that Zongye works very hard for the Lu family.”
“Thirdly, Zongye is the chairman of Lu Enterprise. It is inevitable for him to go out and entertain his clients. It would also be very common for him not to come home sometimes. You should not make a big fuss about it but you should be more considerate and understanding towards him. Even if he gets close to some woman outside, Zongye is only doing it for the company. Don’t make a big fuss out of it and blame him for anything because his priority would always be to ensure that the Lu family business runs smoothly.”
“Fourthly—”
Jiang Yuning could no longer control herself after listening to the first three points. She could not believe that Lu Zongye’s mother still had a fourth point.
A person could really be invincible when they are shameless.
Therefore, Jiang Yuning decided to interrupt her before she could finish speaking. “Auntie, if I remember correctly, you were only a salesgirl selling jewelry before you married into the Lu family. Am I right?”
The expression on Li Shutong’s face changed immediately after she heard Jiang Yuning’s words.
“Jiang Yuning, my mom is educating you so why are you interrupting her?” Lu Zongye yelled at Jiang Yuning immediately.
“Lu Zongye, if we were to judge people based on your mother’s thinking, then you would be of a low bloodline too. Do you really think that you have a throne to inherit? I was actually extremely curious before this. There are so many outstanding and talented people in the Lu family, but how did you turn out to be a beast, Lu Zongye? I finally understand the reason behind it. Lu Zongye, with your mother’s family background and upbringing, your grandfather had already been extremely generous to allow you to be the chairman of Lu Enterprise. Did you really think that you could ever win any more favors from your grandfather? You can stop dreaming about it in this lifetime of yours.” Jiang Yuning rebuked Lu Zongye without any hesitation at all.
“Jiang Yuning!”
“Madam Li, I am not interested in your son at all, and I firmly believe that anyone who could fall for your son must be blind or retarded. He is extravagant, he is arrogant, and he does not have any compassion for anyone at all. He could not even be compared to a dog. I have already proposed for the engagement to be annulled when I was sixteen years old. I wonder who was the one who came and apologize and begged my grandfather not to dissolve the marriage? Madam Li, have you lost your memory?” Jiang Yuning said coldly.
“When I was seventeen years old, I asked my grandfather to annul our engagement once again. Madam Li, you came and knelt down before my grandfather, begging him not to cancel the marriage. You promised my grandfather that if I ever found someone that I loved, you would dissolve the engagement and that you would never insist on it. Did you forget about that too, Madam Li?”
“The Jiang family is worthless now. Jiang Yuning, who do you think you are?” Lu Zongye stood up and yelled at Jiang Yuning.
“Even if the Jiang family is worthless now, I still think that you are more worthless than trash!” Jiang Yuning retaliated, refusing to admit defeat.
“You can marry whoever you want. I don’t care at all. Lu Zongye, did you know? Ever since I was sixteen years old, I have already regarded you as trash. I feel like vomiting every time I look at you. Give my grandfather back to me. I do not have any more time to waste playing games with you.”
Lu Zongye and Li Shutong were both speechless. Their faces were extremely red, flushed with anger as they had not expected that Jiang Yuning would actually have the courage to talk back to them.
Lu Zongye’s eyes were bloodshot and he was breathing heavily as he pointed at Jiang Yuning and started to threaten her. “Jiang Yuning, are you really tired of living? Do you know that I have countless ways to destroy and get rid of you?”
“I have plenty of materials and information on hand that I can use against you. You think you have the ability to bring me down? What a joke—You are a joke! Take your saleswoman mother away and get out of my sight now.” Jiang Yuning did not feel threatened by Lu Zongye at all.
“Would you like me to try destroying you?”
At this time at the main door, the butler had his hands folded together as he paced up and down the entrance. He was extremely worried for both the mother and son that were causing a scene in the living room.
The second young master had already witnessed the entire scene of them humiliating Miss Jiang ever since she stepped into the living room.
After Lu Zongye had threatened Jiang Yuning, Lu Jingzhi walked into the living room, bringing a cold breeze along with him. “Who are you trying to destroy?”
Lu Zongye and Li Shutong would never have imagined that Lu Jingzhi had been waiting at the front door all along. Therefore, they were extremely shocked when they saw him walking into the living room.
“Jingzhi, when—when did you arrive?” Li Shutong was so shocked and afraid that she was stuttering when she asked the question.
Lu Jingzhi strode into the living room and then sat down directly next to Jiang Yuning. He had a straight and unreadable expression on his face. “Me? I came back with her.”
