Chapter 25: You Are Taking Advantage Just Because I Like You

Lu Jingzhi picked up his glass of wine and took a sip. The corner of his mouth curved up slightly. “I do not want anyone else but her.”
“Love struck.”
The other party said loudly as he pointed at Lu Jingzhi before resting his head on the table because he was so drunk.
This was a private event that was only attended by a few people, but these few people were all extremely well-known in Luo City. For instance, the man who was drunk on the table was a famous and excellent surgeon who was extremely capable and outstanding, but in the end, he still married a woman that he did not love at all. Therefore, he was always drinking to drown his sorrows.
After a few rounds of wine, the only person who was still wide awake and not drunk yet was Lu Jingzhi.
A few of Lu Jingzhi’s close friends began to leave the event under the arrangement of their own assistants and Lu Jingzhi also left through Hilton Hotel’s side door, under the protection of his own bodyguards. The hotel kept the confidentiality of its customers very well. After all, they could not afford to make any mistakes as these people were very important in Luo City.
After stepping out of Hilton Hotel, Lu Jingzhi sat inside his car with a tired expression on his face. He then called Jiang Yuning immediately. “I am already outside. Wait for me at the crossroad outside the main entrance.”
“I can see your car from where I am standing.” Jiang Yuning quickly replied from where she was standing. “I… would it be convenient for me to come over?”
“Come over here.” Lu Jingzhi said before hanging up the call. He was feeling a little warm, probably because he had a couple of drinks.
Jiang Yuning held onto her cap tightly and carefully walked over to the side of the car. After carefully looking around to make sure that there was no one around them, she quickly got into the back seat of the car.
Lu Jingzhi did not bring as many bodyguards as he usually did because tonight’s dinner was a personal affair. Therefore, he only had one bodyguard working as a driver for him tonight.
The car was filled with the mellow smell of red wine. Lu Jingzhi had already unbuttoned his shirt and left his shirt opened because he was feeling extremely warm. However, Jiang Yuning felt that Lu Jingzhi still looked cool even though his head was down, his hair was messy and his fierce facial features were more prominent in the dark. She did not understand why the Lu Jingzhi right now seemed like a totally different person than the Lu Jingzhi during the day.
“Second Brother—”
As soon as Jiang Yuning started speaking, Lu Jingzhi pulled her into his arms and started hugging her so tightly that she could hardly resist his grasp.
“Why did you come?” Lu Jingzhi asked quietly. “Don’t you know that it is easy for an accident to happen in this kind of situations? Aren’t you trying to guard against me? Or, maybe you deliberately came here to test me?”
“I am not a simple-minded person. Since I am here, I have obviously thought about everything that could happen,” Jiang Yuning replied calmly.
Lu Jingzhi lifted her chin up gently and then pushed her back onto the backseat as he pressed up against her body.
Jiang Yuning placed her arms around Lu Jingzhi’s neck and kissed him back because she must admit that she enjoyed kissing him. She liked the smell of his breath but she could not afford to lose it… she did not want to lose herself until there was nothing left in the end.
After a few moments, Lu Jingzhi whispered into Jiang Yuning’s ear, “You are taking advantage just because I like you.”
He would not make a move on her just yet because he knew that she was still on her period.
“It is good that you know it. It’s time to go home, you alcoholic,” Jiang Yuning said as she wiggled out of Lu Jingzhi’s arms and straightened her body against the back seat. She patted her legs lightly and said, “Here’s your pillow.”
Lu Jingzhi looked down at Jiang Yuning’s legs and closed his eyes in pain. He must be feeling really uncomfortable as he was frowning all the way back to the villa.
Jiang Yuning fell asleep against the car window on the way back to the villa.
“Principal, Miss Jiang, let me help you.” When the driver saw that Lu Jingzhi was drunk and Jiang Yuning was already fast asleep, he stepped forward to help but was pushed away by Lu Jingzhi.
“Don’t touch her.”
The driver could only obey his command and quietly stepped aside and watched as Lu Jingzhi carried Jiang Yuning out of the car. The principal was really extremely possessive.
Jiang Yuning suddenly woke up when she was in Lu Jingzhi’s arms, and she looked up to stare at the man who was carrying her. When she saw his face, she tightened her arms around Lu Jingzhi’s neck and then continued to lie against his chest with a peace of mind.
“Take a bath before going back to sleep,” Lu Jingzhi said as he gently woke her up and put her down on the sofa.
“I don’t want to,” Jiang Yuning quickly said. “Or else… you can help me to take a bath.”
“You are getting more daring by the day—” Lu Jingzhi said as he carried her into the bathroom. As Lu Jingzhi helped Jiang Yuning out of her clothes, he noticed that her period was almost over.
Lu Jingzhi stared at Jiang Yuning’s earlobe which looked so delicate and compact like a smooth pearl as they soaked in the bathtub together.
“You went to meet your mother today?”
Jiang Yuning was soaking comfortably in the bathtub when she heard his question. She opened her eyes and faintly replied, “I did not only meet her, but I also used her to deal with that woman, Huo Yuxi.”
“You hate her so much?”
Jiang Yuning flipped her body over in the bathtub before nodding her head. Of course, she had deliberately looked away and avoided looking at the areas where she should not be looking.
“Yes, I really hate her. I might treat her worse in the future.”
Lu Jingzhi did not say anything but he simply got up and carried her out of the water and back into the bedroom. This was the first time that Jiang Yuning had seen Lu Jingzhi completely naked.
His upper body was muscular and strong, and he had the perfect body with a six-pack, his buttocks were toned and firm, and if you look further down, you could see that he had incredibly long legs.
Lu Jingzhi suddenly turned around and when he saw that she was so daringly staring at his body, he suddenly asked, “Why? You want to try it out?”
Jiang Yuning quickly shook her head and said, “No, I am afraid.”
“What are you afraid of?”
“I am afraid of pain. What else would I be afraid of?” Jiang Yuning said as she held onto her head and quickly buried herself under the quilt. “Second Brother, I will sleep now. Please turn off the lights.”
Lu Jingzhi looked at Jiang Yuning who was wrapped tightly under the quilt, and some speculations started running through his mind. Was she afraid because she had a bad experience when it came to this kind of thing in the past?

Late night at the living room in the mountain villa in the suburbs.
Huo Yuxi knelt down in front of Fu Yahui, clutching her hands and begging for her forgiveness like a child who had done something wrong. “Mommy, I really did not know that Jiang Yuning was your daughter. If I had known that, I would not have started a relationship with Lu Zongye and gotten pregnant with his child. I promise that I will be a good elder sister and I will love and protect Jiang Yuning from now on.”
“Whose child did you say you are carrying?” Fu Yahui asked as she looked sternly at Huo Yuxi.
“Lu… Lu Zongye’s. I just found out about it,” Huo Yuxi said as she quickly lowered her head. “Mommy, someone deliberately leaked the news that you were going to meet up with Jiang Yuning. Otherwise, why would my agency find out about the time and event of the meet up? I know that I am wrong for trying to make use of my relationship with you to get more coverage and cover up my previous wrongdoings, but think about it, Mommy. This thing should not be my fault entirely.”
“Are you trying to tell me that Yuning was the one who had leaked the information on purpose?”
“Mommy, Jiang Yuning hates me. It would be in her best interest for you to expose your relationship with her. Am I wrong about this?” Huo Yuxi tried her best to explain herself to her mother. “If I could make use of you for my own advantage, what makes you think that she would not be doing the same?”
