Sweetest Top Actress in My Home - Chapter 2 - You Must Not Use It Against Me!
Early the next morning, Jiang Yuning woke up after spending the night on the huge gray bed. She did not see Lu Jingzhi anywhere in the room, but she saw a maid standing just outside the half-opened bedroom door.
The maid asked in a respectful manner, “Miss Jiang, are you awake now?”
Jiang Yuning pushed the door wide open and she saw a thin middle-aged woman with dark skin and a smile on her face standing outside the bedroom with a smile on her face. “You can call me Sister Liang. Mr. Lu asked me to take care of you. He also asked me to pass this note to you.”
Jiang Yuning took the piece of paper and read the message that Lu Jingzhi had personally written. ‘I will be back in three days’ time. When I come home, I want to see evidence supporting your statement that you like me.’
That petty man. He did not believe anything that she said.
“Miss Jiang, Mr. Lu has also left you a cell phone and he has already saved his number inside. Besides that, Mr. Lu has also prepared a car for you but you must be home by eleven o’clock every night…”
As soon as Jiang Yuning heard Sister Liang’s words, she realized that it would not be easy to be someone’s woman.
“Understood. I will not be going anywhere,” Jiang Yuning replied. After all, her plan was to stay at home and plot her revenge.
Yes, she was going to exact revenge on that scumbag Lu Zongye! After all, Jiang Yuning had never been as simple as she looked. Although Jiang Yuning looked pure and innocent on the outside, she could actually be as cunning as a fox.
Five years ago, an accident happened which caused some problems in the Jiang family’s asset chain. When Grandpa Jiang fell ill all of a sudden, it made the Jiang family’s situation even worse and more complicated than it should have been. Jiang Yuning was forced to adapt to a completely new life with nothing at all after falling from her prestigious life. Although the Lu family did not despise her, Lu Zongye was constantly trying to think of ways to get rid of her and destroy her career. Recently, he even had the audacity to bring another woman home even though he was still engaged to Jiang Yuning.
Jiang Yuning had deliberately allowed the scandal involving the director who was married to get this big so that she could pull out of the engagement with that scumbag Lu Zongye without cutting ties with the Lu family.
She knew that her reputation would take a big hit, but she also knew that no one was free from any scandal in the entertainment industry.
She had everything under her control, except for Lu Jingzhi. Whatever happened with him was purely accidental. She did not expect it at all.
At the vice-chairman of Emperor Entertainment’s office at ten in the morning.
The vice-chairman was having a meeting with his guests, that were none other than the third young master of the Lu family, Lu Zongye and his new girlfriend who was the famous actress, Huo Yuxi.
“CEO Lu, if there is anything that you need, you can just give me a call and I will get it done. You do not need to make a trip here personally,” The vice-chairman said respectfully to Lu Zongye. After all, Lu Zongye was a big fat investment that he was betting on. As long as Lu Zongye continued investing in Emperor Entertainment, there was nothing that they could not do. Otherwise, Emperor Entertainment would not have chosen to give up on Jiang Yuning who was in fact a money-making machine.
“Jiang Yuning still owes you sixty million yuan. Did I get that right?” Lu Zongye was wearing a blue striped suit as he hugged Huo Yuxi who was sitting next to him on the sofa. Huo Yuxi had long, black hair, she was very beautiful and she was dressed very fashionably. The Lu family really had good taste.
“Yes, that’s right.”
The vice president replied as he nodded.
“Contact Jiang Yuning and tell her that as long as she agrees to spend the night with anyone that I appoint, then you will not pursue her for the sixty million yuan anymore. It will be completely written off,” Lu Zongye said.
The vice-chairman was shocked and he was stunned for a moment when he heard what Lu Zongye had just said. However, as soon as he noticed the big diamond ring on Huo Yuxi’s finger, he grasped the situation immediately. “I understand. I will make the arrangements as soon as possible.”
“I want to get engaged with Yuxi soon. If I hear anyone making any more comparisons between Jiang Yuning and Yuxi in future, I will make sure that Emperor Entertainment goes bankrupt immediately!” Lu Zongye yelled as he hugged the woman who was sitting beside him tightly in his arms. After all, Yuxi was a famous actress and her reputation was very important. What was Jiang Yuning compared to her?
“Okay, okay. I will arrange for someone to contact her immediately.” The vice-chairman quickly promised as he proceeded to contact Jiang Yuning’s former agent. Who asked Jiang Yuning to offend the third young master of the Lu family?
Jiang Yuning was taking her afternoon nap on the balcony when she suddenly received a call from her former agent.
“Yuning, I have good news for you. The company has decided that you no longer need to pay them any damages for the breach of contract—” The agent had gathered all of his courage to shamelessly make the phone call to Jiang Yuning. “As long as you agree to spend the night with a dark-skinned customer who is interested in you, then the company will immediately write off the sixty million yuan that you owe them.”
Jiang Yuning was still half asleep but she laughed uncontrollably as soon as she heard her former agent’s words. “Lu Jingzhi is on my side right now. Do you really think that I care about that sixty million yuan?”
The agent could not help but broke out in cold sweat when he heard Jiang Yuning’s ironic laughter.
Jiang Yuning held her cell phone in her hand as she said coldly, “Emperor Entertainment has really outdone itself this time. I will make sure that all of you pay the price for what you have done!”
Jiang Yuning hung up the phone as soon as she was done speaking.
Even though Jiang Yuning’s foxtail was already exposed, she still had a harmless and innocent expression on her face as she made a phone call to Ku Jie.
“Brother, we can begin our plan now.”
Jiang Yuning subsequently made a phone call to Ku Jie. “Brother, we can begin our plan now.”
“Alright, I will start uploading articles and news about the scandals surrounding the many artistes of Emperor Entertainment. Is there anyone in particular that you would like me to target?” The person on the other side of the line replied coolly.
Ku Jie’s real name was Jiang Muyang. He was Jiang Yuning’s cousin brother and he had been raised by Jiang Yuning’s father ever since he was a little boy. Therefore, to him, Jiang Yuning’s father was his father figure.
“There are so many people that I hate, it doesn’t matter. Just make sure that you include the scandal involving Shen Ru and the vice-chairman,” Jiang Yuning calmly appointed the two candidates. Her chance to take revenge and turn the tides had finally arrived!
“I got it.”
When the Jiang family faced a financial crisis and went bankrupt five years ago, Jiang Muyang returned to the county and started working as an underground journalist. For the past few years, the both of them had worked hand in hand to post the news and scandals evolving around Emperor Entertainment in order to raise Jiang Yuning’s reputation in the company.
Jiang Yuning quickly turned on the computer at five o’clock in the evening and when she went to surf the internet, she saw the title of the scandal articles and photographs marked in bright red.
In a few minutes, Emperor Entertainment and its artistes were hot on the search button. One of the most circulated news was the one where Shen Ru spent the night at a hotel with the vice-chairman of Emperor Entertainment. This was equivalent to selling herself to gain favor and book herself some of the jobs in the industry.
The scandal involving Jiang Yuning had not died down but more scandals involving artistes from Emperor Entertainment were already splattered all over the internet.
The higher-level management team of Emperor Entertainment had convened and an emergency meeting was called. They quickly contacted Ku Jie and asked what was his intention in revealing all these scandals, and they wanted to know what he was trying to achieve.
Ku Jie used a voice changer before replying them. “I am slightly angry that you dismissed my favorite artiste, Jiang Yuning from Emperor Entertainment. Maybe you can try inviting her back to Emperor Entertainment. If you do so, I might be appeased and maybe I will stop posting and revealing more scandals involving artistes from your company.”
What kind of reason was this? The reason given by Ku Jie and his demands made things even more difficult for the higher-level management team. Emperor Entertainment had already had a huge fall out with Jiang Yuning. How were they supposed to invite her to join the company again?
“Can you just name us a price instead? How much do you want from us?”
“I cannot be bought by money. You better think this through and decide on what you want to do. Otherwise, I will keep releasing more articles involving your artistes tomorrow.” Ku Jie hung up immediately after he had spoken.
Jiang Yuning was listening to the entire conversation between Ku Jie and Emperor Entertainment and at this time, she was beaming with excitement as she was in an extremely good mood.
If Emperor Entertainment did not make use of her or threaten her under Lu Zongye’s instructions before kicking her aside for no absolute reason, she would not have reacted this way.
They had to pay for their actions sooner or later.
As Jiang Yuning was celebrating with a glass of wine, Lu Jingzhi suddenly called her.
Jiang Yuning opened up a bottle of red wine to celebrate and as she was sipping her glass of red wine, she suddenly received a phone call from Lu Jingzhi.
Jiang Yuning glanced at her caller ID and quickly answered the call when she saw that it was Lu Jingzhi. “Hello?”
“Are you sleeping already?”
Lu Jingzhi had just finished a meeting in the conference room and he suddenly wanted to hear her voice.
Jiang Yuning had a guilty conscience as she did not want Lu Jingzhi to know that she was actually not as innocent as she looked.
“Is Emperor Entertainment your former agency?” Lu Jingzhi suddenly asked.
“Yes, what’s wrong?”
Jiang Yuning was puzzled and a little nervous. Did he find out something?
“It’s nothing, don’t worry about it. Go to bed earlier today.”
Lu Jingzhi hung up the phone before looking at his secretary who was standing behind him. “This company is despicable. Find a reason and make sure that they go bankrupt in three days’ time.”
