Chapter 19: I Thought You Saw Right Through My Heart

“Or, would you rather go back to my bedroom to sleep with me?” Lu Jingzhi asked, giving Jiang Yuning another option when he saw her worried face.
Jiang Yuning quickly shook her head, indicating no. She did not want to appear to be so arrogant.
Lu Jingzhi quickly took the opportunity to hug Jiang Yuning as he laid her down on his bed. He did not wait for her to react but he merely nudged her lightly on her head as he said, “Let’s sleep now.”
The two of them were stuck closely together on the small bed and the atmosphere in the room was extremely tense. Who could actually fall asleep in this situation?
Jiang Yuning was suffocated and she felt as though she was beginning to sweat but she did not dare to move. Furthermore, as she was still on her period, she could feel pain in her lower abdomen. When she could no longer endure it, Jiang Yuning finally spoke up. “Forget it, let’s go to sleep in your bedroom instead.”
The man sat up in the darkness, and then got up and pulled Jiang Yuning with him to his bedroom downstairs.
As soon as they entered the bedroom, Lu Jingzhi brought Jiang Yuning into the bathroom and pushed her against the wall before kissing her passionately.
“You… you… you… had you already expected that I would not be able to take it?” Jiang Yuning stuttered. She could see Lu Jingzhi’s suit underneath his black robe and this obviously meant that he had not taken a bath yet.
He had gone upstairs on purpose to taunt her.
“I had wanted to do this for a long time already,” Lu Jingzhi said as he stared at Jiang Yuning. He pulled her towards him and hugged her with one hand while he lifted her little black dress up with the other hand. “Did you really think that you can hide from me forever under the pretext of the time of the month?”
Jiang Yuning subconsciously blushed and then snorted, “Any man who tries to have sexual intercourse with a woman who is having their period is a scumbag.”
“I…have not said anything yet. Furthermore—” Lu Jingzhi said as he fiddled around with Jiang Yuning’s hair. He knew exactly what was going through her mind. “Even if you were not on your period now, you would also look for other ways to avoid me. Why? Don’t you like me?”
“Because I will never know if you sincerely like me or not,” Jiang Yuning said as a matter of fact. “Even if I did like you, I do not want to be so cheap and easy to just offer my body to you just like that.”
“You are backing out now after taking my money?” Lu Jingzhi deliberately teased Jiang Yuning. He then whispered into her ear with a low voice saying, “And here I thought you saw right through my heart.”
“I only saw a small portion of it…” Jiang Yuning was in disbelief as she was extremely gullible. “Can’t you give me a little time to adapt to this?”
“You can slowly adapt to my position first. As for your body—”
Jiang Yuning started blushing because of his words. Her face was as red as a tomato.
“Jiang Yuning, I can promise you anything that you want but this time, even if you were to die, you have to die in my arms.”
Jiang Yuning suddenly felt a strong urge in her heart and she felt that it was fate that was pulling her to him.
Therefore, she suddenly pushed her body onto Lu Jingzhi, lifted her leg and slowly kissed his sexy chin.
She did not want to hold back and restrain herself anymore. She had already liked him for so many years. Now that he was finally standing right in front of her, why would she let him go? Why should she let it remain a fantasy?
The both of them started losing control of themselves, and they started kissing from the bathroom all the way to the bed and they were smothered in sweat from the intensity of it all. However, in the end, they did not have sexual intercourse because Lu Jingzhi could not possibly be—the kind of scumbag who has sexual intercourse with a woman who was having her period.
Lu Jingzhi finally carried Jiang Yuning who was soaked into the bathroom. They washed up for a long time before going back into bed.
Jiang Yuning was still groggy and therefore, she could not escape the fate of lying in Lu Jingzhi’s arms. Before she fell asleep, Lu Jingzhi turned around and whispered into her ears, “If you had successfully annulled the engagement with Zongye in the past, would you have considered proposing to your family to let me be your fiancé instead?”
“Honestly, no.”
‘If the Jiang family did not fall and lose its reputation, I might have had the courage to do so. However, right now, you are like an idol who comes from a whole separate world to me.’
Jiang Yuning could only think to herself as she did not have the courage to say the second part of her sentence.
“What if I told you…I had thought about taking you away?”
“Eh?” Jiang Yuning suddenly woke up and turned around to look at Lu Jingzhi. She continued lying in his arms as she asked, “When?”
She really did not know anything…
“Nothing, it is just a hypothetical question. What is your plan for the future then?” Lu Jingzhi quickly diverted the question back to Jiang Yuning.
Jiang Yuning nodded her head and no longer placed Lu Jingzhi’s words in her mind. Why would Lu Jingzhi think about taking her away? He was doing fine on his own, so why would he?
As for her plans…
“I will look for a reputable entertainment firm to sign me up as their artiste and then I will focus on acting and trying to get a name for myself in this industry until I become one of the top and most famous actresses. Later on, when you get tired of me, I will just look for someone to marry.”
Anyway, he would never marry her.
After listening to her sentence, Lu Jingzhi felt as though someone had stabbed him right through his heart.
Jiang Yuning might look like she was a mentally and emotionally strong person on the surface but when faced with the person that she liked, she felt extremely inferior. She even subconsciously reminded herself not to care for him, and not to fight for him because she was still going to lose him in the end.
For instance, at this very moment, she was lying in the arms of the man she had loved all her life, but she told him that she was going to marry someone else.
However, Lu Jingzhi did not blame her. He just felt distressed and he could only blame himself.
He could only slowly try to diminish the gap between the two of them…

Jiang Yuning did not sleep well that night because she was in the Lu family mansion and she was afraid that someone would find out that she was sleeping in Lu Jingzhi’s room. Therefore, she did not dare to sleep too soundly.
Secondly, Ku Jie called her even before the sky was even bright. This time, Lu Jingzhi was not jealous but he handed the cell phone over to Jiang Yuning after answering the call.
“Brother? What happened?” Jiang Yuning asked. She was still confused as she had just woken up from her sleep.
“I have news about your mother—”
These few words woke Jiang Yuning up immediately and she quickly sat up on Lu Jingzhi’s bed.
“You will be shocked after you see it. Check your cell phone.”
Jiang Yuning quickly hung up and proceeded to check her text messages. She clicked into the news article that Ku Jie had forwarded to her. Jiang Yuning was only interested in the picture in the news article. She also read out the caption below the picture that had captured her attention: ‘Deputy Director of Dongheng Enterprise, Ms. Ava’.
Jiang Yuning’s memory flashed back to when she was just nineteen years old. Her father had mysteriously disappeared and her grandfather was critically ill. The only person that she could depend on at that time was Ms. Ava; her mother who had just gotten a new name for herself. However, sixty-three days later, her mother ran away with another man.
She could have just run away, but she also took all their family money with her. She emptied out all the money in their family company and also left them with a large debt.
Now, she was not only making a comeback but she was the deputy director of an internationally renowned telecommunications company. Jiang Yuning felt that life was really unfair at times. However, this was not what hurt her the most. There were still many other things that hurt her more.
“Second Brother, I want to go home,” Jiang Yuning suddenly said as she turned around to face Lu Jingzhi.
Lu Jingzhi took the cell phone over from her and read the news article. After reading the news article, Lu Jingzhi leaned over and whispered in her ear, “The Jiang Yuning today, the Jiang Yuning who would not let herself lose out, would not admit defeat so easily. Furthermore, you still have me by your side. You only need to show your weak side in front of me.”
“You don’t need to show your weakness to others…”
Who was showing any weakness now? She only wanted to go home to find a way to exact revenge and deal with that amazing ‘mother’ of hers.
