"I'm sorry. I truly am." Raising his head, Lin Shen looked sincerely at Song Qingwan with a devastating look in his eyes, as if he had just lost the love of his life.Song Qingwan only gave him an indifferent glance without saying a word.She was still in a daze when Lin Shen stepped forward abruptly, as if he was going to hug Song Qingwan."Tsk." A resolute look flashed in Song Qingwan's eyes, and she made a small step back, giving Lin Shen no chance to touch her.Jin Fengyao sat restlessly in his seat. His grip on his spoon tightened when he looked up and saw Lin Shen approaching Song Qingwan. It seemed that Jin Fengyao was going to spit fire from his eyes."Ahem." Noticing his demeanor, Jiang Sese coughed into her palm."Sese, are you all right?" Jin Fengchen was concerned as soon as he heard Jiang Sese coughing. He put a hand on Jiang Sese's back and patted gently.Jin Fengyao rolled his eyes at the lovey-dovey couple, then repeatedly jabbed his spoon into his cup."Qingwan
After lunch, Jiang Sese asked, "Shall we go now?"Hearing that, Jin Fengchen rose to his feet right away.Seeing his brother's quick response, Jin Fengyao shook his head. Jin Fengchen looked over his shoulder and raised an eyebrow at his brother.Jiang Sese couldn't help but chuckle when she saw their childish interaction.Over on the other end, Song Qingwan had just received her salary for the day and was smiling cheerfully. Her anger from earlier had dissipated, replaced by joy and delight.Before she knew it, she was humming a tune and smiling with sparkling eyes."Qingwan." She didn't make it very far before she heard that repulsive voice again. Song Qingwan frowned and turned to Lin Shen."Are you ever going to stop?" Song Qingwan spoke before Lin Shen could, cutting him off."I..." Baffled, Lin Shen made a step forward, but didn't know what to say.Song Qingwan threw a dirty look at him, but couldn't be bothered to say another word. The disgust in her eyes hurt Lin Shen'
After Song Qingwan walked up to him, Jin Fengyao leaned toward her in a suggestive way and whispered into her ear. "Do as I say for an afternoon and I'll forget about what you did just then. What do you think?"Hearing that, Song Qingwan darted around, gave it some thought, and said, "Deal.""Why did you leave Fengyao behind?" Slowly, Jin Fengchen put a hand on Jiang Sese's lower back, and rubbed it gently.Sensing the hand on her back, Jiang Sese blushed. She brushed the hand off, then gave him a feigned stern look.Seeing that look, Jin Fengchen smiled, then said, "Yes?"Jiang Sese tilted her head. "You're a happy man now, but what about your brother? Have you thought about his happiness?"Meeting her gaze, Jin Fengchen only found Jiang Sese even more adorable."I haven't; he's still too young for that." Narrowing his eyes, Jin Fengchen held Jiang Sese in his arms."He's not that young. He's old enough." Tilting her head, Jiang Sese said in a displeased tone."Really? Sese,
Later that night, Jin Fengchen returned home, humming a tune. Jiang Sese stuck her head out of the kitchen, teasing him. "You're in a good mood—this is so rare for you. I see that you've made progress."Hearing that, Jin Fengyao straightened his back, then switched to a serious tone. "Sister-in-law, you're making things up. I have no such plans for her.""That's right. Fengyao, you have no feelings for Qingwan at all."Knowing that Jin Fengyao was only being stubborn, Jiang Sese handed him a plate of fruit, then walked away with a smile.Grabbing an apple, Jin Fengyao took a bite and slouched down onto the sofa.Seeing this, Mrs. Jin couldn't help but ask, "What's going on? Do you have a girlfriend now?"Jiang Sese only smiled, but Xiaobao answered the question right away. "It's that pretty Aunt Song! Uncle likes her!""Xiaobao, make up things about me again, and I'll spank you!"Jin Fengyao looked uneasy after Xiaobao exposed his secret. He pretended to raise a fist at Xiaobao
"You're my wife, so what's wrong with me feeling jealous?" Jin Fengchen even squeezed Jiang Sese's waist as he spoke.Hearing how he addressed her, Jiang Sese couldn't help but blush. She feigned a vexed tone when she said, "I'm not your wife. We're not married yet."Jin Fengchen wrapped her in his arms with a mischievous smile on his face."Are you thinking about leaving me? Too bad, you can't. I'll never let you go anywhere.""That depends. Mistreat me and I may turn into a butterfly one day, flying straight out of the wind," said Jiang Sese childishly."I'll never give you that chance, but —"Jin Fengchen paused at that moment, then looked at Jiang Sese with a stern look on his face."I meant it when I said that I don't like you working with other men. I want to hide you away in the house. That way, no one will be able to see how charming you are."Jiang Sese broke into laughter when she heard that. Squeezing Jin Fengchen's cheek, she smiled. "I never thought that the famous
Jiang Sese frowned, then tactfully moved away. She exchanged a look with Lu Zheng without saying anything else.Naturally, Lu Zheng noticed their client's attempt as well. He stepped out to shield Jiang Sese from the man, then exchanged some pleasantries with the latter before leading him into the reserved private room.After the dinner party started, the man picked up a glass of wine, walked over to Jiang Sese, and said with a smile. "So, Miss Jiang is the person in charge of our business plan this time. To wish us having a great time working together, I wonder if Miss Jiang would like to have a drink with me."The man kept breathing on Jiang Sese's face as he spoke. Rising to her feet, Jiang Sese put a chair between them to keep some distance from the man. However, since he was the person in charge of this project, she didn't want to offend him.Before she could say anything, Lu Zheng stood up, then said, "Excuse me, Mr. Wei, but my friend here can't drink. I'll drink it for her.
The car was speeding at over 100 miles per hour, but Jin Fengchen still wasn't pleased. He pushed down on the accelerator harder.Meanwhile, Jiang Sese couldn't be more anxious. After all, she had been the reason that this thing had started, but now, Lu Zheng had to take the fall. That shouldn't have been the case.Her only option now was to hope that Jin Fengchen could get here soon.Maybe her prayer had worked. A familiar figure showed up at that moment, and before she could say anything, he had pulled her into his arms.Smelling Jin Fengchen's familiar scent, Jiang Sese finally felt her mind settle.Jin Fengchen felt his heart melt when he saw how flustered she was. He almost wanted to embed her into his body.Jiang Sese came back to herself first. Pushing Jin Fengchen away, she asked hastily, "Fengchen, how many people have you brought? We're in trouble here."Sensing that something had gone wrong, Jin Fengchen asked in a grim tone, "What's going on? Why do you need more peo
After rushing Lu Zheng into ER where he was given a series of examinations, they were told that he might seem severely injured, but those bodyguards had had reservations when they hit him. This was probably because they didn't want to take responsibility for any severe consequences. As a result, his injuries had mostly been superficial.The doctor addressed Lu Zheng's wounds, then gave him some medicines to take home. After that, they were ready to leave the hospital.Upon leaving, Lu Zheng hesitated, then stammered. "I'm sorry. You must have been frightened."Jiang Sese found his apology confusing. After all, she should be the one thanking him. Without Lu Zheng, Mr. Wei probably would have gotten what he wanted.Jiang Sese smiled gently. "Don't worry about it; you've done nothing wrong. They went too far.""But..."Lu Zheng paused, glanced at Jiang Sese, and continued. "You went there with me, which made you my responsibility. I still feel sorry for what happened."Jiang Sese w
