The next day.Before they departed, Jiang Sese instructed her two little ones uneasily, “Both of you aren’t going out to run around and be too noisy. Understand?”“Mommy, we understand. We will listen to Grandaunty obediently,” Tiantian guaranteed in her babyish tone. “What a good girl.” Jiang Sese patted her head. She then turned around and looked at Xiaobao. “How about you, Xiaobao?”“I will look after Sister and make sure she doesn’t run around,” Xiaobao said.Finally, Jiang Sese showed a satisfied smile. “That’s great, Xiaobao.”“They are both very obedient. You don’t have to worry,” Shang Ying said and looked at her helplessly.Jiang Sese smiled apologetically and told her aunt, “Aunty, sorry for troubling you.”Shang Ying pretended to be dissatisfied and glanced at her. She warned, “We’re a family. You don’t have to be so polite, or I’ll get angry.”“Alright. Be careful on your way there. Have fun, okay?”Jiang Sese sent them out and watched as they left. She only retu
Jiang Sese could finally relax since the two little ones were away.She stayed in the study and read her book all morning. She only realized it was already noon when the butler came up to call her for lunch.After she had lunch, she planned to take a nap in her room. When she went into her room, her phone rang.It was an unknown number.When she answered the call, a panicking voice sounded through the phone. “Is this Xiaobao and Tiantian’s mother?”Jiang Sese got anxious and asked, “I am. What’s the matter?”“They both got into a car accident…”Jiang Sese turned ashen immediately when she heard that. The caller gave her an address. Then, she just ran out of her room without thinking.When the butler saw her run downstairs in a rush, he quickly asked, “Miss Sese, did something happen?”However, Jiang Sese had no time to answer him at all. She ran out wildly and quickly got into her car, then drove and rushed to the location given.The moment her car left the villa, the black c
“Aunty, are you mad?” Jiang Sese asked carefully. Shang Ying had never spoken to her that way before, but the displeasure was audible in her words. “I’m not.” Shang Ying shook her head. She was just annoyed that Liang Xinwei had spoken out of turn and tried to explain on Jiang Sese’s behalf. It was obvious that Jiang Sese had been caught off-guard from worry, but did she need to butt in? It would make others think that Shang Ying did not understand her own niece. “I’m sorry to worry you.” Jiang Sese looked at them apologetically. Fang Yuchen smiled gently. “As long as you’re safe. Just don’t be so foolish next time.” “Okay.” Jiang Sese also felt that she had been too gullible this time, to be duped by a call from a stranger and nearly get run over by a car. Even though she had only suffered a dislocated arm and other injuries, it was still a very terrifying thought. “Sese, you should rest well. I’ll come visit you again when I have the time,” Liang Xinwei said.J
Liang Xinwei was slightly taken aback. She held Anan’s hand as she led Ye Chenyun upstairs to take a seat. When they got inside, Liang Xinwei poured a glass of water and placed it on the coffee table. “Sorry, we’ve only got plain water at home.” Ye Chenyun smiled. “That’s fine. I’m not here to have a drink anyway.” He sat opposite her. Liang Xinwei pondered for a moment before asking, “What exactly do you want to know?” “I…” Ye Chenyun checked himself for a moment. “I want to know if your sister was well before she died?” “Not really.” Liang Xinwei answered honestly. “You may even say she had a very bad time.” When Ye Chenyun heard this, his hand which gripped the glass tightened subconsciously. “Could you tell me why?” “I could. However…” Liang Xinwei smiled apologetically. “I don’t really want to recall those dark days.” Those days were very heavy memories for her. She feared that she might lose her composure and cry in front of him. The both of them fell silent.
Due to her dislocated arm, Jiang Sese stayed home for the rest of the week. She did not go anywhere, she only sunbathed and read. It was quite pleasant. One day, Gu Nian drove her to the hospital to remove her cast. As they drove by a florist, Jiang Sese told him to stop the car. “I’ll go down and buy some flowers.” “Okay.” After they stopped the car, Gu Nian rapidly got out of the car to open the door for her, before he followed behind her into the florist. “Young Mistress, why did you suddenly think of buying flowers?” Gu Nian asked curiously as he watched Jiang Sese pick some flowers. Jiang Sese smiled slightly. “It’s a friend’s birthday today.” “Oh,” Gu Nian came to a sudden realization, “Will you be going to their birthday party then?” “She didn’t organize one.” Jiang Sese paused, “She may have even forgotten it’s her birthday today.” At that, she thought back to when Anan called her yesterday. “Aunty Sese, I’d like to ask for a favor.” “Of course.” “It’s
“She’s bringing some uncle to see my aunty.” Anan’s reply made Jiang Sese rather curious. “Aunty?” “Yeah, my mom’s elder sister, my aunty.” Of course Jiang Sese knew that, she asked in confusion, “Isn’t your aunty…” She recalled that Liang Xinwei had mentioned before that her sister had passed on a few years ago. “Yeah, that uncle was my aunty’s friend back then.” Jiang Sese instantly understood and smiled, “I get it now.” She looked around and changed the topic, “Why don’t we decorate the place, so that your mom will have a surprise when she gets back?” Anan’s eyes lit up, “Sure.” Jiang Sese then turned to Gu Nian to say, “Go and get some balloons and streamers as soon as possible. We need to decorate the place before Weiwei gets back.” “Alright.” Just as Gu Nian was turning to leave, he suddenly remembered something crucial. He turned and said, “Young Mistress, if somebody knocks at the door, you best not open it.” Jiang Sese chuckled. “I know, I’m not that dumb
“You saw him?” Liang Xinwei’s face was full of apprehension. Jiang Sese smiled and nodded. “Yeah, I saw him buying flowers at the florist.” She walked to the living room to pick up the flowers on the sofa before handing it to Liang Xinwei. “Weiwei, ha now.” “Tiantian, drink some milk first.” Gu Nian pulled out a bottle of milk in the nick of time and handed it to her. “Yeah, just fill your stomach first.” Jiang Sese turned to look at Xiaobao and Anan. “Do you two want some milk?” “No, I’ll wait till mom is home to eat.” Anan shook his head in refusal. Xiaobao shook his head as well, “Me too.” “Then Tiantian will drink it on her own.” Jiang Sese put the teat on for Tiantian. Just as Tiantian was about to finish drinking the milk, Liang Xinwei returned. The moment she opened the door, she was shocked to see the entire house filled with balloons and ribbons. “What’s the occasion?” She asked curiously as she looked at Jiang Sese approaching her. Jiang Sese gave her a
Jiang Sese gripped the phone tightly, the room was so quiet her breathing was audible.“What do you think?” Bo Gelian’s voice was light as a feather. Jiang Sese closed her eyes and bit her lower lip. After a long while she finally spat out one word, “Fine.” Bo Gelian laughed lightly, “That’s great. I’ll be waiting.” After he said that, he hung up. Jiang Sese put down her phone and sat on the bed for the longest time before she got up and walked out of the room. Fang Yuchen was exiting the study after finishing his work to see Jiang Sese walking out of her room. “Sese, didn’t you say you wanted to… go to sleep?” When she got closer, Fang Yuchen noticed that she had a grim expression. His smile instantly evaporated and he asked worriedly, “What’s the matter?” “Bo Gelian contacted me of his own accord.” Jiang Sese stopped in front of him and recounted what had just happened. Fang Yuchen frowned deeply when she finished, “Do you intend to acquiesce?” “I don’t see any oth
