His scent surrounded her, setting her mind at rest, and she gradually relaxed."Fengchen.""I'm here.""I should have listened to you."Hearing that, Jin Fengchen let go of Jiang Sese and looked down at her. His eyes were so dark and the look in them so brooding that they reminded her of a whirlpool, sucking her deep into them.Biting her lip, Jiang Sese went on, "I shouldn't have given you that attitude the other day. You were right. I'm not responsible for the loss of Jiang Nuanuan's baby. I shouldn't have pitied her, nor should I have felt guilty."The incident yesterday wouldn't have happened if she hadn't gone soft on Jiang Nuannuan."You're too kind, which has given Jiang Nuannuan the opportunity to hurt you."Looking at the gauze wrapped around her head, Jin Fengchen looked pained. "Sese, no matter what happens in the future, I hope that you can put your own safety above anything else, okay?"She had been injured once because of Xiaobao, and now, she had been injured ag
"Dad, don't you trust me?"Jiang Nuannuan feigned a displeased look and glowered at Jiang Zhen.Jiang Zhen coaxed her right away. "Of course I trust you. I'm just worried about you.""Why are you here at this hour?" asked Shen Shulan.Shen Shulan asked that question because it wasn't time for Jiang Zhen to get off work yet."I heard that Sese had been injured and hospitalized. I'm her father. Of course, I should check up on her."Despite what Jiang Zhen said, the real reason was that he worried that if he didn't show enough care toward Jiang Sese, the Jin Family would come after him again."You're going to see that woman?"Shen Shulan was immediately agitated. "I won't allow it."Jiang Zhen's face darkened when he heard that, and he scolded her. "She's my daughter, too. You'd better watch your mouth.""He's telling me off for another woman!"Shen Shulan flew into a rage right away. She was about to talk back when Jiang Nuannuan stopped her in a hurry and placated her in a lo
"What? That woman doesn't know about her miscarriage?"Jiang Nuannuan frowned at her mother."I think the Jin Family has deliberately kept it from her. If I guessed right, they didn't want to see her sad."Shen Shulan snorted at the mention of that. "I just don't get it. What's so good about that woman? Why does the Jin Family care about her so much?"Jiang Nuannuan shook her head. "No, I won't have it. If she doesn't know about her own miscarriage, then what does that make me?"She couldn't help getting agitated. "She has to suffer the pain like I have!""Nuannuan, don't wind yourself up."As Shen Shulan placated her daughter, she said, "Mom will find a way to break the news to her. Don't worry.""Mom, how can someone like her get all the attention of the Jin Family? Look what happened to me!"Jiang Nuannuan wouldn't be reconciled.After her miscarriage, Lan Sichen kept her company for the first two days, then stopped showing up, saying that he was busy at work.As for his
Jin Fengyao called the police as soon as the incident happened. He had also put pressure on the police force, telling them that they had to catch the culprit.The police were out in force to search for the guy, but only came back empty-handed.Both the police and Jin Fengyao were frustrated!"Brother, it's not like Jin City's area is limitless. We've left no stone unturned, and the only thing left for us to do is dig holes in the ground, but that man is still nowhere to be found. Is he invisible or can he walk underground?"Because the person still could not be found, Jin Fengyao couldn't help complaining to Jin Fengchen.Hearing that, Jiang Sese was so amused that she broke into laughter.Jin Fengyao was displeased. Turning around, he said, "Sister-in-law, I wasn't joking!"Seeing that he was genuinely frustrated, Jiang Sese stopped laughing immediately and tried to comfort him. "You really don't have to be so wound up by it. Give it some time. I'm sure you'll find him.""Give
Su Qingyin went to see Wei Ziheng and cut to the chase. "Can you get someone out of the city for me?""Sure."All she had to do was ask and Wei Ziheng would say yes without hesitation.Light flickered in Su Qingyin's eyes after he said yes, and an alluring smile appeared on her face. "Thank you, Ziheng. You're so nice to me."Her affectedly sweet voice gave him a tickling sensation in his chest.Wei Ziheng stared deeply into her eyes, not trying to hide the affection in his own eyes at all. He said sincerely, "It's my greatest pleasure to be of help to you."Su Qingyin kept her smile, but in her head, she was trying to come up with a plan to get that man out of Jin City....That night, Wei Ziheng drove into that old residential area and stopped outside that building covered with moss.Sticking his head out of the window, Wei Ziheng took a look at the building, then frowned and asked in bewilderment, "Qingyin, what is this place?""One of my distant cousins lives here." Su Qi
"Over a month pregnant?"And the baby had been killed by the fall?"A pair of invisible hands seemed to have gripped Jiang Sese's heart, and she involuntarily reached for her flat stomach.Somehow, she had an inkling that Shen Shulan was telling the truth."Wait!"Jiang Sese stopped the bodyguards from dragging Sheng Shulan away, then walked up to her."Tell me again what you just said."Shen Shulan gave her a piteous look. "Jiang Sese, you're pathetic. You didn't even know that you had lost your own baby. I pity that one-month child. It hadn't even taken on human form yet."Clenching her fists, Jiang Sese suppressed her fear and fought to keep her voice steady. "Shen Shulan, do you think I'll believe you?""You've come over to me. Doesn't that mean you already believe me?" Shen Shulan gloated.Jiang Sese said nothing in reply. She only stared at Shen Shulan for a long while before telling the bodyguards to throw the woman out."Jiang Sese, it's karma! Karma! You made Nuannu
Over on the other end..."Just drive through."Su Qingyin told Wei Ziheng as she looked at the red light a short distance away."Qingyin, no matter what a rush we're in, we have to follow the rules. We can't put our own lives at risk," Wei Ziheng said gently, hoping that she would listen to him."If I don't get there in time, I'm just doomed," mumbled Su Qingyin.Wei Ziheng couldn't hear her clearly. "Qingyin, what did you say?""Nothing."Wei Ziheng frowned, asking, "Qingyin, has something happened to your cousin?"Su Qingyin didn't answer, but suddenly held his hand. "Ziheng, you'll help me no matter what, won't you?""Y...yes." Wei Ziheng hesitated a little.Her demeanor made him somewhat uneasy.He took her hand in his and asked gently, "Can you tell me what happened? I can help you better if I know what this is about.""I..." After much hesitation, Su Qingyin still didn't tell him. She only said, "Ziheng, you've got to help me."The traffic light turned green at that
Jiang Sese's stomach lurched and she got up from Jin Fengchen right away. Turning around, she saw that Jin Fengyao was lying on the ground and blood was slowly gathering beneath his body."What happened?"Jiang Sese's widened eyes were filled with panic and bewilderment."Sese."Jiang Sese turned around when she heard the voice."Help me up." Jin Fengchen had used himself as a human shield and fell directly to the hard ground. He was yet to recover from the impact.Only then did Jiang Sese come back to herself and help him to his feet.Holding her hand, Jin Fengchen when to Jin Fengyao's side with a grim look on his face. Jiang Sese involuntarily gripped Jin Fengchen's arm when she saw the blood on the ground.What on earth had happened?Jin Fengyao was rushed to the ER.Only with Jin Fengchen's narration did Jiang Sese realize that those men had tried to hit them with the vehicle.Jin Fengyao rushed over and pushed them out of the way.But he didn't dodge in time himself.
