Chapter 40: I Have A Temper Too

“Then, how did you come to the conclusion that I was the one who released the news about your pregnancy?” Jiang Yuning asked Huo Yuxi. “Do you have any evidence?”
“But…there are only a few of us who know about my pregnancy…” Huo Yuxi quickly replied.
“Then…you had better be extremely careful. I not only know everything about your pregnancy, but I also have materials about you cheating on Lu Zongye and two-timing him,” Jiang Yuning said as she raised her cell phone and pointed it towards Huo Yuxi. “If I really had the intention to release news to ruin your reputation, I would have released these materials as soon as I received them.”
Huo Yuxi bit her lip as she stared at Jiang Yuning. She did not know what else she should do.
“I wanted to let you off the hook initially…but it seems that it is not necessary anymore. Since you think that I am the kind of person who likes to release news and information about you to the media, then maybe I should just release these materials to the public. After all, you have already said that I am a vicious woman who only thinks about harming you and your baby every day. Maybe what you have said is true then.”
Huo Yuxi was stunned for a moment. She quickly let go of Fu Yahui and hurried over to Jiang Yuning. “Yuning, I was wrong. Don’t be mad at your elder sister. I had not meant to blame you for something that you did not do. Please forgive me. I was just too angry and annoyed, and that was why I made the wrong judgment.”
“Is that what it is? You were too angry at that time? Well, I am very angry right now…” Jiang Yuning said as she looked down at Huo Yuxi who was pleading to her. “Do you think that I can be easily bullied by you? I know that you still have other plans up your sleeves. Who knows? Maybe Lu Zongye is already on his way here to deal with me.”
Huo Yuxi was extremely frightened after listening to Jiang Yuning’s words.
“Yuning…I beg you. Please do not tell Zongye anything. I only blamed you because I was feeling extremely angry. I did not know any better.”
“So, you know how to be afraid too?” Jiang Yuning laughed as she looked at Huo Yuxi’s agent who was standing at the side and asked, “Aren’t you going to help her up? If anything happens to her and she suffers a miscarriage, she is going to blame it on me again.”
“Enough, Yuning. Do you really want something to happen to Yuxi today?” Fu Yahui finally stepped up to stop the argument. She knew that if she allowed the matter to drag on any further, they would not be able to end the argument in peace.
“Of course not. I do not want to cause any harm to her,” Jiang Yuning quickly replied. “I still intend to attend my elder sister’s wedding. So, Huo Yuxi, I can only warn you to stop provoking me when I did not do anything to you. I am holding back, not because I am afraid of you, but only for my mother’s sake. I will give you face this time, but if you really want to get married and have your baby, then I would advise you to stay quietly at home and take care of your own health. I have a temper too.”
Huo Yuxi fell to the ground with a huge sigh of relief. It was as though she had been struck by lightning.
She would never have expected that things would turn out this way.
Soon, there was the eager knocking on the front door of the villa. Huo Yuxi was even more afraid and she did not dare to move at all. If she made the wrong move and offended Jiang Yuning any further, Jiang Yuning might tell Lu Zongye everything that she knew and then, she would not be able to marry into the Lu family anymore.
“Mom, look! Lu Zongye is here. So, do you still choose to believe Huo Yuxi’s words over mine?”
Fu Yahui’s face was red with anger and she simply got up from the sofa and said, “I don’t care anymore.”
“Elder sister, Lu Zongye is here. Are you sure you don’t want to open the door and invite him in? After all, he is here to deal with me and give you the justice you deserve.”
Jiang Yuning then stood up to open the front door but she was quickly stopped by Huo Yuxi. “No, no. Stop. I will ask him to leave now.”
Huo Yuxi hurriedly searched for her cell phone and she quickly called Lu Zongye and whispered, “You can go back first. I am fine.”
“Yuxi, did that shrewd Jiang Yuning fall for it?”
Jiang Yuning snatched Huo Yuxi’s cell phone from her and put it on speaker before holding it up in the air.
Huo Yuxi started sweating profusely as she was really afraid at this time.
“Yuxi, say something. Did auntie believe you or did she choose to believe Jiang Yuning? Open the door and let me in now.”
The truth was already out in the open and there was no need to look for any further evidence.
Jiang Yuning hung up on the call and then tossed the cell phone back to Huo Yuxi.
“If you try to set me up one more time, I promise that I will not let you off so easily anymore. This is the last time that I am going to spare you,” Jiang Yuning warned her directly.
There was no way out for Huo Yuxi this time. Everyone in the mountain villa at that time had finally seen her true colours. No—in fact, all of them had already known what kind of person Huo Yuxi was all along. However, things had never been quite as openly and clearly exposed as it was right then.
Perhaps because Lu Zongye’s continuous knocking got too annoying, Fu Yahui finally sent Huo Yuxi’s agent to go out and deal with him. If she allowed Lu Zongye to enter the villa, based on his temper and Jiang Yuning’s anger today, there would be a huge dispute. Once the truth was out to the public, Huo Yuxi would never be able to marry into the Lu family anymore.
Furthermore, Jiang Yuning looked as though she would be glad if Lu Zongye stepped through that door.
Jiang Yuning wanted to know if she or Huo Yuxi was more afraid right now.
Huo Yuxi’s agent had no other choice but to step out and handle the situation with Lu Zongye. After all, if Lu Zongye entered the villa, everything would be over for Huo Yuxi.
“Yuning, mommy was wrong today. I should not have listened to everything your elder sister had said without listening to your side of the story. However, this matter involves our family. Therefore, I hope that you can promise me that you will not threaten your elder sister with these materials again in future.”
Things had already progressed to this state and yet, Fu Yahui was still taking Huo Yuxi’s side.
However, Jiang Yuning did not falter, as this was not the scene that mattered to her. What mattered more was the drama that was about to unfold in the near future.
“I have already made myself very clear. As long as Huo Yuxi leaves me alone and focuses on taking care of her baby and matters regarding her wedding, I would not expose her. Lu Zongye will never find out about her two-timing in this lifetime,” Jiang Yuning said in a serious tone. “But…”
“I dare not do it anymore, Yuning,” Huo Yuxi quickly replied.
“I hope that you will remember what you have said and everything that has happened here today.” After that, Jiang Yuning turned around to look at Fu Yahui. “Mom, I really do not know why you do not trust me at all. Maybe it is because we have spent so little time together in the past few years. Whatever it is, I hope that you will understand that I am your biological daughter and I would never do anything to harm you. However, I cannot speak on behalf of your stepdaughter.”
After that, Jiang Yuning let out a huge sigh before leaving the villa.
Fu Yahui opened her mouth but did not know what to say. This time, she had really let Jiang Yuning down. She turned around to look at Huo Yuxi and said, “Can you stop creating drama out of nothing? You have already stolen Lu Zongye away from Yuning, so what else do you want? What else are you still dissatisfied with? Jiang Yuning is my biological daughter and this is a fact that you can never change.”
Huo Yuxi sat down on the floor and covered her face as she continued crying. She knew that she should not have taken Lu Zongye’s advice.
However, she had forgotten the fact that this happened because she was greedy and wanted to gain more favor with Fu Yahui.

Lu Zongye watched as Jiang Yuning stepped out of the mountain villa. However, he was stopped by Huo Yuxi’s agent before he could walk up to her. “Jiang Yuning, you little shrewd! Where do you think you are running off to?”
“Third young master, I think that it is best that you stop finding fault with Miss Jiang,” the agent could only helplessly say as Lu Zongye did not know about everything that had happened in the villa.
After getting into her car, Jiang Yuning turned around to look at Lu Zongye and all she felt was pity for him.
After all, whether it was Li Shutong or Huo Yuxi, Lu Zongye was merely a toy that they were using to get what they wanted. This was going to be the case until the day the truth was finally revealed…
Oh, Jiang Yuning felt ecstatic just thinking about it.
