Chapter 278: He Hates Lies but He Was a Big Softie on the Inside
Jiang Yu nodded. “I know.”
Jiang Chenglang explained, “Originally, we were certain that we would win this project. Who would have thought that something like this would happen in the end? The person in charge of this project has been causing a ruckus in the company. The reason I’ve been coming back late these past few days is that I’m dealing with these matters…”
Jiang Yu interrupted, “I know the comments on the internet about me. Someone came looking for me today. Do you think that I’m the one who leaked the information?”
“It doesn’t matter what others say. They’re not important.”
Jiang Chenglang looked at Jiang Yu and said, “I don’t listen to naysayers on the internet. I want to ask you in person. Xiao Yu, did you do it?”
Jiang Yu said, “No.”
Jiang Chenglang felt relieved and said, “Okay, I believe you. I’ll let the company know. I’ll investigate this matter and clear your name.”
Jiang Yu narrowed her eyes. “Aren’t you afraid that I’ll lie?”
“So far, you’ve never lied. I’m willing to put my trust in you.” Jiang Chenglang raised his hand and put it down.
He said gently, “You’re my little sister and my family.”
So, he did not want to believe that Jiang Yu would betray the Jiang family.
Jiang Yu was already prepared for Jiang Chenglang to question her. However, she did not expect Jiang Chenglang to express his trust in her with just a few words.
She was a little surprised but when she thought about it carefully, it seems like he had always been like this.
He was dull and old-fashioned but he valued his family above all else. Otherwise, he wouldn’t have stayed here to guard the Jiang family after the other brothers of the Jiang family had left.
If Jiang Wan hadn’t caused so much trouble, Jiang Chenglang would have kept her in the Jiang family, right?
“Don’t worry. I won’t allow others to frame me. I will prove my innocence.” Jiang Yu’s tone softened. “Regardless of whether you have ever doubted me before, I’m grateful for your trust in me now.”
After leaving the study, Jiang Yu passed by Jiang Wan’s room and a thought suddenly came to her mind.
At that time, before she and Feng Linbai had worked together to expose Jiang Wan’s plans, Jiang Chenglang probably didn’t want to believe that Jiang Wan could do such a thing, right?
No wonder Jiang Wan wouldn’t let go of Jiang Chenglang.
This man obviously hates lies but he was a big softie on the inside.
When waking up in the morning, Jiang Yu always feels a sense of unease.
She touched the sweat on her forehead. It was rare for her to sweat so much during her sleep.
She seemed to have had a bad dream but she couldn’t remember what the dream was about.
She couldn’t remember anything at all.
It felt like a long, endless, lonely hole. She couldn’t see anything but she remembered the feeling. She was powerless to suppress it.
Jiang Yu pressed her chest in confusion.
This was the first time that she had felt this way.
This feeling was strange and sudden. It made no sense at all.
She sat on the bed and stared at her phone in a daze.
As she looked at it, she suddenly remembered something. She had a flash of inspiration and picked up her phone to dial a number.
The mechanical female voice told her that the phone had been switched off.
Jiang Yu looked at the time. Could it be that they haven’t woken up yet? At this hour though, it was quite impossible.
After Jiang Yu had gone downstairs and finished her breakfast, she dialed the number again. The phone was still off.
Jiang Yu frowned.
She quickly walked to the door, changed her shoe, and called for the driver. The driver stepped on the accelerator and the car sped off!
