Chapter 588: I Will
In fact, Lu Jingzhi did not need to tell the old master Lu anything at
all. Even though the old man had already abdicated his position for many
years, he still had a very high status. The old man would understand
everything that was going on as long as someone gave him a phone call.
That little brat. Was he really planning to keep such a big thing a
secret and endure everything by himself? Was he really so afraid that he
would stop their marriage?
At this time, the whole country already knew that Jiang Yuning was the
granddaughter-in-law of the Lu family. What else could he do?
Besides that, in his heart, he had already long regarded that cocky
little girl as his own granddaughter. If he had to accept another girl as
his granddaughter-in-law, then he would definitely reject it one thousand
and one times. Even if he disliked her and even if he had his own
resentments about her, he would never allow anyone else to say anything
bad about her.
He did not plan to talk to that little brat about this matter but he had
to tell Jiang Yuning about this.
That little brat was paying such a huge price just to be together with
Jiang Yuning. So, the old master Lu felt that it was only fair for that
stinky girl to reciprocate his feelings in the same way.
Anyway, the decision would ultimately lie in the couple’s hand and he
would definitely allow them to make their own decisions. The old man had
already retired for such a long time and it would not be good for him to
interfere in Lu Jingzhi’s business. Moreover, he believed in his own
Later that evening, old master Lu gave Jiang Yuning a phone call and told
her to come over to the Lu family mansion half an hour earlier. He also
instructed Jiang Yuning not to tell Lu Jingzhi about this matter.
When Jiang Yuning received the phone call, she had just finished shooting
for an advertisement. When Vera saw the change in her expression, she
asked, “What happened? Is it about the wedding? What is wrong with
Jiang Yuning knew that something was definitely wrong if the old man
asked her to arrive at the Lu family mansion at an earlier time.
“Send me over to the Lu family mansion first and if second brother
asks, just tell him that you already sent me to the Lu family mansion
because it was on the way,” Jiang Yuning replied as she tried to calm
herself down and regain her composure.
“Don’t you want to go to Xiya Hotel to pick your father up first?”
“I want to go to the Lu family mansion first.”
“Why…what is happening?”
Jiang Yuning shook her head. In fact, she was actually feeling very
worried. She knew that it was completely impossible for the old man to
reject their wedding at this time, therefore she was even more afraid
because this simply meant that the old man wanted to talk to her about
“Alright then. I will send you there right away.”
As soon as Jiang Yuning was done with her work, she removed her makeup
before she hurried over to the Lu family mansion. At this time, Chen
Jingshu was waiting for her in the living room. As soon as she saw Jiang
Yuning, Chen Jingshu told her, “Grandpa is waiting for you in the study
At this time, Chen Jingshu shrugged as she shook her head. She was also
unsure of what was going on.
Jiang Yuning took a deep breath before she relaxed and hesitated for a
few seconds outside the study room before she finally knocked on the door.
After that, she pushed the door open before she entered the study room.
Old master Lu was wearing a pair of vintage reading glasses as he read a
book and he had a very calm expression on his face.
“Come over here…”
“Don’t worry, I know that there is no way that I can tear the both of
you apart,” the old man replied as he closed his book before he took
off his reading glasses.
Even though Jiang Yuning did not say anything, the old man could tell
that she was obviously relieved because of what he said.
“But you should not be so happy too soon. Let me ask you something.
When you got together with Jingzhi, did you ever think whether you will
be affecting Jingzhi’s future by being together with him?”
As soon as Jiang Yuning heard the old man talking about Lu Jingzhi’s
future, Jiang Yuning felt very stressed again. This was one of the
biggest fear that she hid deep down in her heart.
Even though she had been very decent and righteous even as an artiste in
the entertainment industry, there was no doubt that she would still be
affecting Lu Jingzhi’s future.
“Yes, I thought about it.”
“But in the end, the both of you still chose to be together regardless
of what happens…”
“Then, let me ask you again. If you knew that you would definitely
bring great troubles and obstacles to Jingzhi just because you are
together with him, will you still choose to be together with Jingzhi
After listening to the old man’s words, Jiang Yuning lowered her head
to think for a moment before she finally replied in a firm and
unquestionable manner, “Yes, I will.”
“Because I know what he really wants. I know that I am the switch on
button to his soul. Grandpa, if I am not by his side, second brother will
not be happy even if he holds a high position in office. I know that
second brother is a very emotional person and I know that my existence in
his life might leave a negative impact for him. However, I choose to
believe in second brother’s ability…”
The old man took a deep breath after listening to Jiang Yuning’s words.
Why was this word so hurtful to the old man?
That little brat had always kept everything to himself ever since he was
a child. He lost both his mother and father at a young age and he always
endured and suffered through everything all by himself.
The old man knew that Lu Jingzhi had been just an empty shell for most of
The little brat only showed joy and happiness after this girl reappeared
in his life.
“Even if that is the case, you should pay more attention to your
actions because regardless of what you do, you will always become a
target for others to deal with Jingzhi. For Jingzhi, your identity and
your social relationships are all nothing but excuses for the enemies to
target and attack him. I received news this morning that Jingzhi would be
demoted and transferred out of the 489 Group. Did you know about that?”
“I have never dared to ask…about his work before.”
The old man knew that Jiang Yuning was showing respect towards Lu
Jingzhi’s line of work.
“There is nothing wrong with that and the little brat had probably been
dealing with this ever since a long time ago. However, I want you to know
that since the both of you will be living and spending an entire lifetime
with one another, then you should be considerate towards one another.
Love is not only presumptuous but love is all about restraint. It does
not matter whether he is in the 489 Group or not but he will always be a
member of that circle and he will never be able to escape from that life.
Therefore, you should not let Jingzhi be the only person making
concessions and compromises for you all the time. He also has his own
dreams and ambitions.”
“That is all that I want to tell you today. You have to understand the
kind of family and the kind of man that you are getting married to.”
“I am not asking you to put the Lu family first in everything that you
do but I do not want to see Jingzhi suffering alone.”
“He is a man of few words and he never shares his worries to anyone
around him. We will usually only find out about this matters after some
time had already passed. Since you are the person who is closest to him
now, I hope that you can stand by his side so that he would not need to
face all those spears and cannonballs on his own. Can you do that for
Jiang Yuning’s eyes were flushed red at this time. She stood straight
as she replied in a very firm manner, “Yes!”
“You can think about what you should do for yourself.”
Jiang Yuning’s eyes were swollen when she came out from the old master
Lu’s study room.
When Chen Jingshu saw Jiang Yuning, she was extremely shocked. “Did
Grandpa teach you a lesson? Did he scold you?”
Jiang Yuning shook her head before she held Chen Jingshu’s hands and
said, “No, grandpa did not scold me at all. I was crying because of a
fool. Sister Jingshu, please do not tell second brother that I came back
earlier. I have to keep it a secret, okay?”
“Are you sure that this will not affect your relationship?”
“Yes, I am sure. You don’t have to worry. Grandpa did not try to
“Alright then.” Chen Jingshu patted Jiang Yuning’s hand gently
before she nodded solemnly.
After leaving the Lu family mansion, Jiang Yuning returned to the car
before she asked Vera to send her to Xiya Hotel to pick her father up.
When Vera saw that Jiang Yuning’s eyes were red and swollen, she was a
little worried and she asked, “Are you sure you are okay? Did the old
man make things difficult for you again?”
Jiang Yuning shook her head immediately. In her mind, she could remember
that the old man said that love was not presumptuous but love was
“Vera, in future, I will not participate in any more variety shows.
Moreover, I want you to help me to reduce my exposure by fifty percent
next year. Please also ask my brother to help me withdraw all of my hot
