For the rest of the day, Jiang Sese didn't get any calls or texts from Xiaobao or Jin Fengchen. When she got home, she stared at her empty house and felt dejection filling her.She smiled wryly and comforted herself by thinking that she had always lived by herself and it didn't make any difference for her to continue her life alone.After washing up, she went straight to bed.The day passed just like that....The next day, Jiang Sese threw herself into work.She was currently working on a project with the Lu Group. The company had requested the Jinse Group to come up with a proposal to advertise its new product.She scheduled a meeting with the manager of the Lu Group to get more details.At noon, she went to the restaurant where they promised to meet.She walked up to the entrance and decided that she would call the manager to ask his whereabouts. She dug through her bag for her phone as she walked, and in a moment of distraction, she accidentally bumped into someone."I'm
Jiang Sese watched Lu Zheng hand over his phone and say, "Let's stay connected on WeChat. It'll be easier for us to talk that way."She didn't turn him down. She took his phone and entered her WeChat ID before returning it to him."I'll be off then. Let's talk again.""All right. Be careful on the road, Senior Lu.""Sure."Lu Zheng's mellow and rich voice rang in her ears as he returned to his car. He even shot her a gentle look before starting his engine and driving off.This scene happened to be witnessed by Su Shan, who was outside just returning from work.She stared at the departing car and asked, "Sese, who's that man who drove you here?""Oh, Manager Su. That's the manager of the Lu Group. I was supposed to meet him to discuss our project, but who knew he'd turn out to be my university senior?" Jiang Sese didn't conceal the truth.The two of them returned to the office as they talked."Is that so? That's such a coincidence!" Su Shan laughed, but her expression was a li
After meeting their clients at the club, they continued their discussion in a happy manner. The clients were fond of alcohol, so Jin Fengchen had to drink quite a bit with them.Jin Fengyao sat beside his brother and intentionally poured him more drinks.The alcohol content of the drinks at the meeting was pretty high, so Jin Fengchen soon found himself rather tipsy and dizzy.He was basically drunk by the end of the meeting.When he excused himself to go to the washroom, Jin Fengyao took the opportunity to answer a call. He didn't quite pay attention to the situation in the private room.Su Qingyin hesitated for a beat before heading to the washroom.She waited in the corridor. When Jin Fengchen walked out of the washroom, she immediately walked up to him. "Fengchen, are you all right?"Jin Fengchen didn't answer her.Su Qingyin stepped forward, wanting to support his arm, but he avoided her.Her hand paused mid-movement. She didn't think that even a drunk Jin Fengchen would
Their eyes met. Overwhelmed by his own feelings, Jin Fengchen couldn't stop himself from pinching her chin and kissing her on the lips."Hmm…"Jiang Sese's eyes widened, utterly stupefied. She was caught in a daze.By the time she snapped out of it, she started struggling against his grasp. Jin Fengchen wrapped her into a tight hug instead.He confined her within his arms and deepened their kiss.The faint smell of alcohol reached her as their lips entwined. The temperature in the room abruptly became several degrees higher and the mood became flirtatious.When she thought she would run out of air, Jin Fengchen slowly let go of her.He closed his eyes and sank back into slumber.Jiang Sese fled her bedroom like she was running for her life.Her cheeks were flushed with blood and her heart was thumping madly. She went into the bathroom and washed her face. It took a long while before she finally calmed down.She couldn't help complaining about Jin Fengchen doing such things wh
Sure enough, Jiang Sese saw Jin Fengchen standing behind her the moment she turned around."What a coincidence," she said awkwardly.Who could have understood her feelings at this moment? She just wanted to die. The reason she woke up so early in the morning and tried to convince the Lu Group to pick another advertising platform was that she wouldn't have to meet Jin Fengchen.Little did she expect that he would run into them at the restaurant and even overhear their conversation.Jin Fengchen was dressed in a black suit. His handsome face was void of expression as he stared at her. He pursed his lips. "Why are you here?"Jiang Sese returned to her senses and let out a peal of humorless laughter. "To discuss a project, of course!" She paused for a beat before adding, "This is the President of the Lu Group, Lu Zheng. He's our new client."Lu Zheng was still in shock, for he recognized the man to be the President of the Jin Group, Jin Fengchen. The Lu Group was quite a prestigious
Jiang Sese looked at Jin Fengchen with a defensive look on her face. She asked, "Wh-what are you doing here?"Jin Fengchen moved one step closer then he said in his deep and charismatic voice, "I'm here to ask you why you pretended that we are strangers. Why didn't you want to come to the Jin Group for the cooperation? Why did you assume that we wouldn't provide you with advertising space?""We aren't that close to begin with, and I just don't want to bother you with advertising."The two of them were standing very close to each other. Jiang Sese felt somewhat uneasy so she stepped back a little bit.Hearing "aren't that close", Jin Fengchen squinted at her, and from his thin lips he said, "How about now?"He lowered his head and wrapped his arms around the back of her head and he kissed her.The kiss was so unexpected that Jiang Sese was dumbfounded, and she felt like her head was going to explode. "How can he do th-this at the door of the bathroom?"She never thought this man
Jiang Sese still felt flustered when she got back to work. What happened at the restaurant, especially what happened by the door of the bathroom, came back flashing in front of her eyes. Her heart was still throbbing when thinking of their kiss.Jiang Sese had to numb her senses with work.She finished her work for the day at around five. She told Su Shan that she wanted to go home early since her work was already done."Sese, what happened? Did something come up?" Su Shan asked.Jiang Sese shook her head. "Nothing urgent, but I will go and see my mom at the hospital."But in fact, she only left early to avoid Jin Fengchen, who said before that he would catch her later. Jiang Sese was afraid that he might wait for her at work, so to avoid meeting him again, she decided to leave early. She wanted to go home directly but then she was afraid that Jin Fengchen might be there so she decided to go to the hospital to see her mother.Su Shan didn't say no to her. "Okay then, see you!""
The Lan and Jiang families might have managed to keep their companies. But they were still suffering from a bad reputation and recovering from that. They couldn't possibly appear in front of Jin Fengchen and risk crossing him.Jiang Nuannuan was furious because she truly thought that Jiang Sese had been abandoned. But it just turned out to be her slapping her own face with her own assumption.She had a gloom written all over her face. "Why should I be suffering from all of the vicious gossips? My sisters have been calling me the other woman and avoiding me."Meanwhile, Jiang Sese still has her peaceful life with Jin Fengchen still around."Jiang Nuannuan gritted her teeth. "Let's see how long this Jin Fengchen finds her interesting. He will be bored in no time, and I'll have my revenge when he abandons her."...After they left the hospital, a puzzled Jiang Sese asked, "Why are you here?""I was in the neighborhood."Jiang Sese didn't respond."It's one thing to run into him i
