That sounded ambiguous. If Jing Tong didn’t know that man well, she would definitely suspect that he had ulterior motives.
“I’m not so poor that I can’t even pay for a meal.” Jing Tong shook his hand away. “Since you’re so worried about your safety, why don’t you bring a few more guards? Or you can just return to Beijing. It’s still early anyway.”
In her impression, Jiang Yu wasn’t so afraid of death that he was worried that someone would assassinate him in a hotel. If he were such a person, he wouldn’t have appeared in Yang City alone.
“I have something to do. I’ll be in Yang City for two days. I have my reasons for not bringing the guards,” Jiang Yu said and paused. “I know this request is a bit presumptuous, but the only person I trust now is you.”
He trusted her?
Jing Tong was dazed. If it were more than three years ago, she would’ve been thrilled to hear that from him.
However, she found it ridiculous now.
“Jiang Yu, have you forgotten what our relationship is?” She came back to reality and sneered. “You’re my enemy! I didn’t plan to take revenge before because I didn’t have a chance, but if you insist on going to my house, I guarantee you won’t see the sun tomorrow morning!”
However, her threat was useless. Jiang Yu said calmly, “What I’m about to do is very important, so I need your help and cooperation.”
Jing Tong couldn’t help biting her lips.
She hated herself for being useless, and she hated how cold and heartless that man was. He had suddenly made this request without considering her feelings or whether it was reasonable. She had to cooperate with him because he had that need.
“But what can you do to me if I don’t want to help you?” Jing Tong raised an eyebrow.
Jiang Yu frowned and said, “It’s important. Don’t be stubborn, Jing Tong.”
Jing Tong smiled and said, “Jiang Yu, why are you pretending? Isn’t it all for your status and power? Why are you being reasonable with me? I won’t fall for that!”
Jiang Yu didn’t say anything this time. He just stared at her, his dark eyes looking very oppressive.
Jing Tong wanted to leave, but Jiang Yu blocked the exit of the cubicle, and his tall body was like a wall.
Her chest heaved up and down, but she couldn’t do anything to that man.
What was worse was that the man kept looking at her as if he was saying, “You should think about the big picture”, as if the country and society would be let down if she didn’t cooperate.
She gritted her teeth and had to let go.
“I told you, I only have one bed and one room at home. How do you plan to sleep? Do you want to sleep on the ground?”
Jiang Yu’s expression finally relaxed. He looked at her and nodded. “No problem.”
Jing Tong slapped the bill on him and said, “Go pay the bill!”
Half an hour later, Jing Tong opened the door of the apartment with the key.
The man behind her followed her in.
The facilities in the room were obvious.
Jing Tong wasn’t lying. She had rented a hotel-style apartment, which was only suitable for one person to live in. After entering, there was a bathroom on one side and an open kitchen on the other. Further in, there was only a bed and a desk. The entire room was only twenty square meters, and even the bunk bed looked forced.
However, the bed was big enough for two people.
Jiang Yu soon made this judgment.
