Jiang Zhen quickly explained, ‘Xueman, I didn't mean it like that. I know even if I apologized ten thousand times, it won't be able to erase the harm that I have done to you and Sese.”“As long as you are aware of that.”Fang Xueman did not want to pursue the matter anymore and just said, “You don't need to say anything else. Come sit down, I haven't finished my breakfast yet.”Jiang Zhen’s mouth twitched as if he wanted to say something, but he refrained and merely walked over and sat down.The room grew quiet again. Fang Xueman ate her breakfast while Jiang Zhen watched quietly. The atmosphere was unusually harmonious.Jiang Sese secretly opened the door and peeked inside. Taking in the scene within, she could not help but smile, and then gently closed the door.“What are you doing?”The sudden sound from behind startled her. She jumped and turned around to give Fang Yuchen a smack. She then said, “Cousin, are you trying to scare me to death?”Fang Yuchen raised his eyebrows,
Shang Ying set down the package of sugar and turned to look at her suspiciously, “Why don't you like Xiaoyi? You’ve only met her once.”Jiang Sese smiled, “Aunty, for some people, one only needs to meet them once to know who they are inside.”Shang Ying suddenly became curious, “Then tell me, what kind of person is Xiaoyi?” “Can I speak frankly?” asked Jiang Sese.She did not want to upset her Aunt if she spoke her mind.Shang Ying nodded, “Yes. It’s fine.”“Then I shall speak my mind. Please don't get angry.” Jiang Sese reminded her in advance.“I won’t.”After obtaining assurance from Shang Ying, Jiang Sese spoke her mind, “Ye Xiaoyi is not as lovable as you see on the surface. The first time I met her, Weiwei accidentally stained her clothes, and she forcefully demanded that she be compensated.”“Well, her clothes are ruined, it’s natural that she be angry, and she has to be compensated, there is nothing wrong with that.”Anticipating that she would defend Ye Xiaoyi, Jian
Liang Xinwei brought Gu Nian to a seat.“Please have a seat. I’ll go talk to my manager.”Liang Xinwei turned to leave, but Gu Nian suddenly grabbed her hand.She turned back, her gaze falling toward the hand holding her wrist and she frowned slightly.Gu Nian realized that his actions might have been too abrupt, and he quickly retracted his hand. He smiled awkwardly. “I just wanted to ask if it would interrupt your work?”“No, I’m just about to change shifts right about now.”Liang Xinwei smiled at him, then strode toward the counter.“Is that your boyfriend?” her colleague asked curiously.Liang Xinwei smiled and shook her head. “No, just a regular friend.”“Are you sure?” Her colleague did not believe her. “He’s been watching you. Is he really just a regular friend?”Liang Xinwei turned back to look at Gu Nian. Gu Nian saw it and nodded politely.“Don’t overthink it. He’s just a friend.”Liang Xinwei looked around. “Where is the manager?”“In the back.”Liang Xinwei wa
“I wanted to ask if you are prepared?” said Jiang Sese.“I’m ready. I’m just waiting for the day.” Fang Yuchen seemed to hold back his expression slightly. “No matter what happens that day, most importantly, you must protect yourself.”Jiang Sese smiled. “I know.”Fang Yuchen was silent for a moment. “I understand that you really want to find Fengchen, but please also understand the feelings of myself and Gu Nian, as well as those of my parents and your mother, as well as everyone in the Jin family. We don’t want to see you getting into trouble again.”Jiang Sese's eyes grew moist. She nodded vigorously. “Don’t worry. You can rest assured that I will not act impulsively this time. I will put my own safety before anything else.”Fang Yuchen reached out and stroked her head. “You'd better keep your word.” “Of course I will.”In fact, she understood this, even if he did not say it.“Then wish us luck.”“Yeah.”The two glanced at each other and smiled.They hoped for the best.
They parked the car outside the restaurant Bo Gelian had predetermined. Jiang Sese turned and looked out the window of the restaurant. There was no trace of emotion on her pretty face.“Are you ready?”Fang Yuchen broke the silence in the car.Jiang Sese smiled slightly. “Yes, I’m ready.”So long as there was a glimmer of hope that they could find Jin Fengchen, she would not hesitate to walk right into the dragon’s den.She opened the door and got out of the car, but Fang Yuchen hurriedly grabbed her. She raised her eyes to meet his concerned gaze.“Be careful,” he said softly.She smiled. “I’ll be fine if you are here.”“Young Mistress, let us know immediately if you encounter any trouble,” exhorted Gu Nian.“I will.”She turned and got out of the car.Fang Yuchen and Gu Nian watched as she walked into the restaurant. The atmosphere in the car grew stifling.After a while, Gu Nian said, “Chairman Fang, we too have to be ready to rush in to save the Young Mistress at any mo
Bo Gelian nodded. “That’s right. That was my initial thoughts. However, after I discovered that you were Jiang Sese, I changed my mind.”As soon as he said this, Lisa's expression changed instantly. She no longer cared that Jiang Sese was there and exclaimed in a shrill voice, “Bo Gelian, don’t tell me that you actually like her?”Bo Gelian chose to ignore the question, his eyes locking tightly on Jiang Sese's pure and beautiful face. The corners of his lips curled up. “Do you believe me?”Jiang Sese asked instead, “Do you think I would believe you?”Seeing that Bo Gelian ignored her, Lisa could no longer hold back her jealousy and used her hands to turn his head over to face hers. Her eyes widened as she shouted angrily, “I'm your wife! She is nothing!”Bo Gelian stared at her, unmoving, for a while, then removed her hand and turned to Carl. “Take the Madam back.”“No. I’m not leaving,” yelled Lisa. She turned and shot Jiang Sese a poisonous glare. “B*tch, as long as I'm here, y
“All right, I understand.”Fang Yuchen hung up the phone, his expression extremely solemn.“What is it?” asked Gu Nian.“We’re going in.”As soon as he said this, Fang Yuchen opened the door and got out of the car.Gu Nian quickly followed and caught up. The two strode into the restaurant.“I’m sorry, gentlemen. You can’t go in.”They were stopped as soon as they set foot in the restaurant.Fang Yuchen and Gu Nian glanced at each other, acting puzzled, and asked, “Why not?”“The venue is closed for a private event. You will have to find another place to dine.”“Private event?” Gu Nian acted shocked. “Who is so rich to reserve the entire place?”Fang Yuchen sighed. “It seems like we have no choice but to leave. I was hoping to have some nice Italian food.”The two of them turned around and exchanged glances, signaling that they were going to have to knock the waiter out.At this moment, they heard a familiar voice.“Just a minute.”Fang Yuchen and Gu Nian turned toward th
Jiang Sese’s expression was cold as she interrupted him, like she did not not hear him, “Mister Bo Gelian, I have no intention of troubling you. I just want to know where he is.”“I’ll tell you if you want, but you must come back to Italy with me.”The instant Bo Gelian finished his sentence, Fu Jingyun exclaimed, “There’s no way she is going back to Italy with you!”Bo Gelian turned and looked Fu Jingyun up and down, then said mockingly, “Mister Fu, you are a well-known researcher in the field of medical sciences. Don’t you think being a chef here is such a waste of your talent?”“She’s not going back to Italy with you,” repeated Fu Jingyun and continued, “And you can forget about using her in your research.”Bo Gelian raised his eyebrows. “And you can save her? The pathogen in her body should be activating anytime soon.”As soon as he said this, Fang Yuchen and everyone else's expressions turned somber.“Although it is pure luck that she survived for so long after being infect
