Chapter 9: Caught Red-handed Again. I Hate This
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
Lu Jingzhi did not explain himself because Jiang Yuning no longer remembered. When she was around twelve years old, she had been jumping on his bed in the Lu family mansion when she accidentally stained his bed.
At that time, she had just started her menstruation and she did not know anything. Although the servants quickly changed the bedsheets and cleaned up the mess, it was then that Lu Jingzhi found out about what menstruation was like for girls.
Jiang Yuning fell asleep very quickly, perhaps because of the effects of the drugs.
For the past few days, Jiang Yuning had been accustomed to monopolizing the entire bed to herself. Therefore, while she was sleeping, she subconsciously moved around and eventually wrapped her long and slender legs around Lu Jingzhi’s waist.
Her sleeping habit was absolutely terrible.
Lu Jingzhi stretched his hand and placed it on her thighs, but he did not push her leg away.
There were still many questions that he was doubtful about. He did not believe Jiang Yuning’s love confession that she had always liked him. Otherwise, why would she—
The sound of Jiang Yuning’s ringtone woke Lu Jingzhi up in the middle of the night as he had always been a light sleeper. He turned around to look at Jiang Yuning’s cell phone that was placed on the bedside table. As soon as he saw the words ‘Ku Jie’, Lu Jingzhi wanted to get up immediately. However, before he could get up, Jiang Yuning grabbed hold of his arm.
“Deity, don’t leave me. Show me your abdominal muscles…”
Lu Jingzhi wanted to push Jiang Yuning’s hand aside initially, but when he heard the word ‘deity’, he calmed down a little. He already used to it. This woman could easily make his world collapse just by saying a few words.
Jiang Yuning thought she was dreaming because in this dream, she was able to touch Lu Jingzhi’s body however she wanted to. Her dream felt so surreal and wonderful that she could not help laughing out loud. She suddenly woke up when she was in the middle of her dream.
When she woke up, Jiang Yuning immediately felt stupid because she was laying on top of Lu Jingzhi’s chest and her hands were all over his abdomen, feeling every inch of his six-pack.
“Are you satisfied now?” Lu Jingzhi asked as he had his arms wrapped around her shoulders.
“I am so sorry, Second Brother. I did not—I did not mean to offend you,” Jiang Yuning hurriedly replied as she quickly kept her hands to herself. Lu Jingzhi laughed at her reaction before speaking again.
“It’s okay. You have my permission to continue.”
“I don’t think that is such a good idea,” Jiang Yuning replied but she could not control herself. Her right hand was still beneath Lu Jingzhi’s pajamas, and she was caressing his body uncontrollably.
Lu Jingzhi’s lips curved into a smile because he was already used to Jiang Yuning saying one thing and yet doing another.
“Are you moving lower?”
Jiang Yuning was enjoying the feeling of his warm body against her hands and her hand was moving lower and lower down his abdomen before she suddenly froze.
She could not afford to tease this man.
“Haha, next time. Next time.” Jiang Yuning laughed awkwardly as she quickly withdrew her hands.
Lu Jingzhi glanced at her and then sat down on the bed. After he stood up, he turned his head around and said to Jiang Yuning, “You have some missed calls.”
That was awkward.
After hearing Lu Jingzhi’s tone, Jiang Yuning felt that something was not right but she did not think too much about it. She checked her cell phone and once she realized that she had missed calls from Ku Jie, she quickly dialed his number to return his call.
“You finally know how to answer your phone?” Ku Jie said, seemingly displeased at her late reply.
“I overslept…” Jiang Yuning replied as she ran her fingers through her hair. She did not dare to tell Ku Jie what she had really been doing all morning.
“Lu Zongye came up with a new method to deal with you. In order to divert the public attention away from him and Huo Yuxi, he asked the wife of the married director to come out and testify. She is now testifying on the internet that you were not a victim at all because she had personally caught you in bed with her husband.”
“What did she catch me doing? She saw it with her own eyes? She is so confident?” Jiang Yuning replied coldly. “Alright then, Brother. I got it. I will make a trip to the hospital later to handle this matter personally with that woman.”
“I thought you have already gotten together with Lu Jingzhi? Why do you still have to handle everything by yourself?”
“Brother, you are my only relative in this world aside from Grandpa. So, please stop treating me like this.” Jiang Yuning could not tolerate Ku Jie’s sarcasm. “You will not understand the relationship between Lu Jingzhi and I.”
“Whatever. I am too lazy to be bothered with you. Give me a call if you need my help.”
After Ku Jie hung up, Jiang Yuning quickly got up from bed.
She wanted to go downstairs and ask what her idol would like to have for breakfast, but then she saw that Lu Jingzhi had already changed into a silver suit and he was already preparing to leave the villa.
“Aren’t you staying for breakfast?”
Lu Jingzhi looked at Jiang Yuning with a straight face. He was acting completely different than he was the night before. This puzzled Jiang Yuning because she did not know what she had done to ignite his anger.
“I am busy,” Lu Jingzhi replied indifferently.
Jiang Yuning felt aggrieved because she did not know what she had done to deserve this kind of treatment from him. When Lu Jingzhi turned around to walk away from her, Jiang Yuning quickly grabbed hold of his arm and said, “Why are you mad at me?”
“My third brother is investigating who Ku Jie is. To be honest, I—I am also very interested to find out who exactly this Ku Jie person is,” Lu Jingzhi said as Jiang Yuning continued holding onto his arm. He did not push her hand away, and this only made him seem more powerful and tall beside her.
Jiang Yuning laughed as soon as she heard Lu Jingzhi’s words. “So, you are mad because of Ku Jie?”
She finally understood why the expression on his face was so gloomy when he told her that she had missed calls.
“Do you still remember my uncle’s child? I brought him with me to the Lu family mansion when we were younger. His name is Jiang Muyang. Do you remember him?”
Lu Jingzhi finally relaxed the expression on his face after listening to Jiang Yuning’s explanation.
“Second Brother, you are too tensed up. Since I have already agreed to come and live with you, I would not be dating anyone else! My legs are short, I can’t be stepping on two boats at the same time,” Jiang Yuning said playfully as she laughed.
Lu Jingzhi took the opportunity to pull her into his arms and he used his hand to lift her thigh up. “If you dare to step on another boat, then you can forget about keeping your legs.”
Jiang Yuning leaned against Lu Jingzhi’s chest. She could hear his strong heartbeat and she suddenly felt that her blood pressure was rising insanely. “No, don’t do that. I still need to use my legs.”
“Besides walking, there are other purposes for your legs.”
“What do you mean?” Jiang Yuning did not understand what Lu Jingzhi was trying to imply.
Lu Jingzhi put his arms around her waist and pulled her closer to him before suddenly carrying her up. Jiang Yuning was so surprised that she subconsciously wrapped her legs around Lu Jingzhi’s body.
Jiang Yuning started blushing and her face was as red as a tomato as soon as she realized what she had done. She was feeling extremely embarrassed. “Let me down.”
He was teasing her and she felt as though she was about to give in.
“Sir. Miss.” Sister Liang suddenly said as the two people were hot in action. Jiang Yuning was so embarrassed that she quickly buried her face in Lu Jingzhi’s neck.
“Caught red-handed again. I hate this.”
Lu Jingzhi put Jiang Yuning down before meticulously sorting out his suit that had been crinkled up by Jiang Yuning.
“I hope that when you have any trouble in the future, I will be the first person that you look for and not any other man,” Lu Jingzhi said as he patted Jiang Yuning lightly on her head. He then let go of her and walked out of the villa with much calmer and more relaxed footsteps.
‘Was he jealous? That was so cute—’ There was only one thought in Jiang Yuning’s mind as she watched Lu Jingzhi slowly walking away from her.
Maybe she did have a place in his heart after all. Maybe she was not just a toy to him.

In the black Bentley, the secretary had selected some of the important news and headlines in Luo City for Lu Jingzhi to go through. This was his daily duty but, in the past, he had never brought up the entertainment section before.
However, this time it was different because Miss Jiang was making headlines in the entertainment section.
“Principal, do you want to leave it up to Miss Jiang to handle this matter herself or—” The secretary was referring to the matter involving the married director’s wife.
“Let her handle it herself. Let her have some fun but make sure to pay attention and don’t let her create any trouble. In addition, I want you to make sure that Ku Jie’s identity stays protected so no one can ever find out his identity.”
“Eh?” The secretary was extremely surprised. Has the principal changed his strategy?
