On the other hand, Vera was also busy looking through all the online reviews and she naturally would not miss the comments posted on Jiang Yuning’s public profile. At this time, Vera noticed that one particular comment that was cursing at Jiang Yuning.
“Garbage! I can’t wait to see how you will fail in the next issue. You will receive the retribution that you deserve! I hope you get tortured to death!”
This comment angered a lot of the Ginger Candies and because of that, this post actually had the greatest number of replies.
However, the comment that was ranked first and liked the most was a comment from a netizen with the user ID @Scenery. All that he had posted were five short words: “Are you tired of living?”
Hmm…scenery? Vera rubbed her chin as she was deep in thought.
Tired of living?
Why did this person sound so much like the second young master of the Lu family?
Vera felt that she had unexpectedly discovered something extraordinary but she had her doubts. How could this be possible? Would second young master Lu actually be so free to comment online?
Full of curiosity, Vera clicked into @Scenery’s public profile page and as soon as she looked at his profile, she realized that this person had not followed any other accounts except for Jiang Yuning’s social media profile. Moreover, he had never commented on anything else prior to his reply to the hater on Jiang Yuning’s page.
In order to verify her own suspicions, Vera immediately called Jiang Yuning even though it was already late in the middle of the night. “Yuning, do you know if Second Young Master Lu actually check or follow any news related to you online? Better yet, do you know if he has any social media accounts of his own?”
Jiang Yuning scratched her head as she thought about Vera’s sudden question. “Well, I don’t know, but do you think he is really so free?”
“Hahaha. That’s exactly what I thought. He would not have the free time to do all that.”
If even Jiang Yuning did not know about this, then @Scenery could not possible be Lu Jingzhi’s social media account.
A short while later, Lu Jingzhi returned to the bedroom after taking a shower. Jiang Yuning immediately reached out her hand and started hugging and clinging onto Lu Jingzhi. “Second brother, Vera just called me to ask me whether you had a social media account. I think that she really thinks that you are too free!”
“Why? Can’t I have a social media account?” Lu Jingzhi replied in a quiet manner.
Jiang Yuning was stunned for a moment and she did not respond.
She then crawled over Lu Jingzhi’s body to pick up her tablet before she logged into her own public social media account to take a look at the comments.
Since so many Ginger Candies stood up to the person who posted the comment to insult Jiang Yuning, that comment was naturally pushed up to the top of the page. Jiang Yuning clicked in to view all of the comments and when she looked at the comment with the most likes, she immediately knew that it was Lu Jingzhi.
The user ID: @Scenery.
Jiang Yuning could not help but laugh out loud.
She liked his comment before she put down the tablet.
Was this man for real? He actually started a war with a netizen just because of her.
A few seconds later, Jiang Yuning received an incoming phone call from Vera again. This time, Vera called to reprimand her. “Are you crazy? Do you really want everyone to know how much you like @Scenery? Are you afraid that no one would know that you are already married? Are you afraid that no one would find out the identity of @Scenery? Seriously? Are you that afraid that nobody would know that you love @Scenery? Do you know that you have around fifteen million fans at the moment? Do you know that these followers are constantly keeping tabs and watching every move you make?”
Jiang Yuning pouted immediately because she was very unwilling to unlike the comment.
At this time, Lu Jingzhi took the phone away from Jiang Yuning before he started to comfort her.
“It’s enough for me as long as you know how I feel.”
Jiang Yuning was still dissatisfied because she was not allowed to like or comment on Lu Jingzhi’s post.
“But second brother…aren’t you being too opportunistic with your user ID?” Jiang Yuning asked Lu Jingzhi as she pointed at the word ‘scenery’.
Lu Jingzhi took the tablet from Jiang Yuning’s hand and placed it on the bedside table before he turned around to look at Jiang Yuning. He lifted Jiang Yuning’s chin slightly before he asked, “Then…who else are you referring to when you say that you love the scenery, huh?”
Jiang Yuning could not help but blush immediately.
This was because she had already used her user ID ever since she debuted and she had never changed her user ID in the past five years.
The scenery…was of course referring to none other than Lu Jingzhi. However, she had never told anyone about this before.
“Of course, the only scenery for me is you. Second brother, you are the only scenery that I want to look at and spend the rest of my life with.”
Lu Jingzhi did not waste any more time and he pushed Jiang Yuning down on the bed before he pressed her down under his strong and muscular arms and chest.

Of course, he knew exactly how she felt. This was also the reason why he used a picture of her back view as his wallpaper for the past few years. Although they had already missed out on the opportunity to be together because of a misunderstanding in the past, and though it felt as though there was no longer any hope for them to ever be together, both of them could not give up on each other even though the chances looked so slim.
So, Lu Jingzhi felt exactly the same way that Jiang Yuning did.
After he realized Jiang Yuning’s feelings for him, Lu Jingzhi was certain that he was the scenery that she was referring to.
Because of that, Lu Jingzhi decided to use scenery as his own personal user ID.
Jiang Yuning and the second young master Lu had already turned off their bedside lamp over here but on the other hand, Vera’s blood pressure was still rising rapidly.
Fortunately, she had discovered the issue and responded in the nick of time. Otherwise, Jiang Yuning would be crying while she would be having a tough time trying to appease the fans.
She was not afraid that Jiang Yuning’s relationship with Lu Jingzhi would be made known to the public.
However, she was stressed out because she knew that Jiang Yuning was not ready to make her relationship and marital status public.
But…to think that @Scenery was actually the second young master Lu. It was not surprising that Jiang Yuning acted like a fool without even thinking twice before acting on it.
Vera did think about letting Jiang Yuning have her way.
She could just allow Jiang Yuning to like @Scenery’s comment and just ignore everything that happened subsequently.
However, Vera then decided against it because it would be too risky and dangerous. Therefore, it was better for them to keep the situation the way it was. Moreover, Vera was also uncertain about the second young master Lu’s thoughts about this matter.
Vera went over to the Royal Dragon Villa early the next morning to pick Jiang Yuning up to pick up the promotional posters that she had shot earlier.
Both of them then returned to the villa at noon.
At this time, Vera arrogantly placed a huge stack of business propositions and drama scripts on the table in front of Jiang Yuning. “Look. This is every proposal that has come in the last few days. There are some variety show, commercials, dramas, and events for you to consider. Since you have already been casted as the first female lead of <Nameless Orphan>, there is no need for you to look at any other drama scripts for the time being. Furthermore, I don’t think that you need to participate in any other variety shows since you are still actively filming <Desert Island Rescue> right now. Therefore, our focus should be on any events or commercials. I have already discussed with Director Shen about obtaining some fashion sponsors and resources for you. You can select the commercials or activities that you are interested in.”
Jiang Yuning was sitting on the sofa eating ice cream and after a short pause, she quickly shook her head. “No. I want to have more time to finish composing and writing the song for second brother before his birthday.”
“Think about the money! Do you think you have a lot of money now? Do you really think you are qualified to push away any jobs or resources given to you now?”
“Oh well…Xiya Hotel just paid out some dividends to me last month. They gave me this much.” Jiang Yuning replied as she held out her fingers to Vera.
“Thirty million yuan?”
Jiang Yuning shook her head. “Three hundred million yuan.”
Vera was stunned as she stared blankly at Jiang Yuning. “Would you like to know what lemon essence tastes like?”
“Sorry, I was wrong. Go ahead and make the necessary arrangements for me. I will follow whatever you have planned for me.” After all, three hundred million yuan was not sufficient to redeem all the relics Lu Jingzhi’s mother had left behind for him that he had sold off. She had to earn more money.
“That’s much better.” Vera immediately put her fist down.
As the both of them were busy discussing the activities that they should take on during her free time, Sister Liang suddenly walked into the living room with Lu Jingzhi’s suit jacket in her hands. She looked at Jiang Yuning before she asked, “Mistress…do you think sir would still want this?”
Sister Liang found a white envelope in the pocket of Lu Jingzhi’s suit jacket.
Jiang Yuning knew that all of Lu Jingzhi’s top secret documents were all placed in brown envelopes. Therefore, she should be able to look at this one.
“Give it to me.”
