Chapter 4: Who is the Worthless One Now?

“Why not? Once you sign the contract, the company will no longer pursue you for the sixty million yuan. This would be the best for everyone,” the vice-chairman anxiously pleaded. The chairman had only given him until noon to get Jiang Yuning to sign the contract with them.
Jiang Yuning was now sitting right before him and she was just about to sign the contract, but now—
Jiang Yuning put the pen down and stared directly at the vice-chairman.
The vice-chairman quickly said, “Just tell me what your requirements are and we will try our best to fulfill your wishes.”
“Him.” Jiang Yuning pointed at her agent and said, “I want him to disappear and never step foot in Emperor Entertainment ever again.”
The two men stared awkwardly at one another and the agent was obviously more anxious. “Jiang Yuning, aren’t you asking for too much? I was so good to you.”
Good? To think that those words could actually come out of his mouth.
Jiang Yuning just stared blankly at the vice-chairman and said, “So, can it be done or not?”
“Yes, of course,” the vice-chairman quickly replied as he turned around to look at Jiang Yuning’s agent. “You—you are fired!”
The agent stared at Jiang Yuning in disbelief. He had not expected her to exact revenge upon him.
The agent could not afford to lose his job so he clenched his fists tightly and quickly knelt before Jiang Yuning.
The agent started begging, “Yuning, please—just let me off this time.”
Why would she let him off so easily? Jiang Yuning sneered and turned a blind eye to her former agent. She picked up the pen once again, but she was not willing to sign the contract yet.
“My dear empress, if you have any other requests, please do not hesitate to let me know.”
Jiang Yuning lifted her head before smiling cunningly like a fox. “Well, why don’t you get Shen Ru to come and apologize to me personally then? After all, she snatched plenty of my job opportunities in the past and even left a scar on my shoulder. I can still remember everything that she did very clearly.”
The vice-chairman rested his head against his palm as he listened to Jiang Yuning’s request.
He knew that this woman would not give in so easily and would definitely make some demands at this critical juncture.
“Alright then, I will ask Shen Ru to come over immediately so can you just stop it already?” The vice chairman’s patience was already reaching its limits.
Jiang Yuning stared at her beautifully manicured nails as she waited for the person to come. The agent was still kneeling down beside her but she ignored his presence entirely.
He was about to forcefully deliver her to CEO Huang’s bed, just the night before. Therefore, this was not something that she could forgive so easily.
Shen Ru was invited into the vice chairman’s office twenty minutes later. Shen Ru was not as glamorous as she usually was and she looked extremely haggard because of the ongoing scandal and exposure in the tabloids.
“Shen Ru, apologize to Yuning now. You should also thank Yuning because we will finally be able to resolve this issue if she is willing to help the company.” The vice-chairman looked at Shen Ru and signaled her to act accordingly. After all, he would still give all the job opportunities to Shen Ru in the future, and they could also deal with Jiang Yuning in the future once everything cooled down.
“Why should I apologize to her?” Shen Ru said as she folded her arms across her chest and rolled her eyes at Jiang Yuning.
Jiang Yuning did not try to forcefully get an apology but she stood up immediately and said, “Vice-chairman, I think you have to find another way to resolve this issue then.”
“I said apologize now, Shen Ru!” The vice-chairman suddenly yelled. “If you do not apologize today, I will make sure that you are hidden from public. After all, you are making the headlines in all the tabloid news right now.”
Shen Ru was extremely humiliated but she did not want to be cast aside. She apologized very reluctantly. “Sorry.”
“Who are you apologizing to?” Jiang Yuning asked coldly.
“Who do you think you are? If it was not because of Ku Jie’s threat, do you think you would even be sitting here right now?” Shen Ru asked as she glared at Jiang Yuning. “I would advise you to use your brains before throwing tantrums around here. The job opportunities are all arranged by the company so why are you getting mad at me?”
“Is that what you think? Then let me tell you, you have just lost your only chance to turn this thing around for you.” Jiang Yuning took out her cell phone and then immediately dialed Ku Jie’s number before placing the call on loudspeaker. As soon as he answered the call, Jiang Yuning immediately said, “Ku Jie—”
“Ning-ning?”
“Shen Ru refuses to apologize to me,” Jiang Yuning acted like a child and started complaining to Ku Jie.
Shen Ru and the vice-chairman listened to the conversation between them and they were both too shocked to speak.
“Is that so? Don’t worry. I still have the video of her making out with the young boy—it is the extended version. I will immediately arrange for—”
As soon as she heard Ku Jie’s words, Shen Ru quickly held onto Jiang Yuning’s arm. “Jiang Yuning, I was wrong. I am really sorry. Please stop Ku Jie from releasing more videos about me.”
Jiang Yuning laughed as she pushed Shen Ru’s hand away. “So, tell me. Who is the worthless one now?”
“Me—me, I am the worthless one. I beg you, please just get Ku Jie to stop it,” Shen Ru grabbed hold of Jiang Yuning’s arm and she knelt down immediately and pushed Jiang Yuning’s agent to the side as she continued begging for mercy.
“You—what is your relationship with Ku Jie?” The vice-chairman suddenly pointed his finger at Jiang Yuning and asked as he realized the gravity of the situation.
“Well, you could say that he is my brother,” Jiang Yuning said as she smiled. “Sorry for only telling you now. I can tell you that my brother takes revenge very seriously. He is very upset that you have colluded with Lu Zongye to set me up.”
“No… that is impossible. If Ku Jie was really your brother, why did he release that news about the scandal involving you and the director who was married?” The vice-chairman asked in disbelief.
“That is because I wanted to get out of my engagement to Lu Zongye. Anyway, my brother has plenty of news on Lu Zongye and the various artistes that he had been sleeping around with. Guess how I am going to repay Lu Zongye and Emperor Entertainment for setting me up?” Jiang Yuning stood up immediately after she had finished speaking.
“No—Yuning, please—” The vice-chairman quickly replied as he reached out to grab Jiang Yuning’s hand, but his hand was quickly shoved away by Jiang Yuning.
Jiang Yuning waved her hand as she looked around the room filled with people with all sort of expressions displayed on their faces.
“Oh, before I go, let me give you guys a heads up. The news that will be released later in the afternoon will definitely be bigger and more exciting!”
After she had finished speaking, Jiang Yuning stepped out of the vice-chairman’s office and walked haughtily through Emperor Entertainment. When he saw her leaving, the vice-chairman hurriedly took out his cell phone and started to call Lu Zongye. When the agent saw what he was doing, he quickly reached out to stop him. “Vice-chairman, don’t do it—”
“Get lost.”
“Vice-chairman, I advise you to stop contacting the third young master of the Lu family in the future. If you continue doing that, we would only die more terribly.” Jiang Yuning’s former agent said this because he knew that Lu Jingzhi was the one supporting Jiang Yuning.
“You have already been fired so get out of my sight now!” The vice-chairman was furious as they had all been played by Jiang Yuning.
How could he be played by that woman?
“You will really regret it—I am serious.” The agent sat down on the floor out of desperation. He could tell that Emperor Entertainment was about to be destroyed.
Police officers came and sealed the office shortly after Jiang Yuning left.
The vice-chairman of Emperor Entertainment was escorted away by the police officers as the employees stood and watched.
The vice-chairman himself was also still in disbelief at the sudden turn of events.
This was ridiculous. This was absolutely unbelievable.
Today marked the happiest day for Jiang Yuning ever since she entered the entertainment industry.
She could not help but burst out in laughter when she thought of the expression on their faces earlier today. When she thought about how the vice-chairman had been so in shock that he had knitted his brows so tightly together, Jiang Yuning burst into tears from laughing too hard as she sat down on the sofa.
She suddenly received a phone call from Ku Jie. “Ning-ning, I have just received news that Emperor Entertainment is now under police investigation.”
Jiang Yuning smiled as she sipped on her glass of red wine. “Who is so kind-hearted to help me take revenge on Emperor Entertainment?”
Ku Jie remained silent on the other side of the line.
Jiang Yuning suddenly thought of something and quickly jumped out from her seat. “Brother, I think that Lu Jingzhi might have something to do with this. When we were talking on the phone last night, he asked me about Emperor Entertainment.”
“What do you mean?”
“I—I am now living in Lu Jingzhi’s villa. He also gave me sixty million yuan,” Jiang Yuning quickly explained.
