Gu Nian’s first thought as soon as he got a day off was not to rest, but to go see Liang Xinwei. Liang Xinwei could not help but exclaim in shock when she saw the state he was in, “What happened to you?” Gu Nian smiled simply, “I fell.” “How did you fall so bad?” Liang Xinwei looked over the wounds on his face, her attractive, thin eyebrows knitting together tightly, “Also, how did you fall on your face?” The wounds on the face seemed like he had been beaten up. Gu Nian laughed dryly, “It’s as they say, your face is in the ground, but luckily you’ve still got a good personality.” Liang Xinwei covered her mouth as she laughed, “Don’t worry, you’re still very handsome.” “Are you finishing work?” Gu Nian saw that she had already changed into her own clothes and had her backpack on her back.“Yeah, I worked the day shift today, so I just got off work.” Arching his eyebrows, Gu Nian said, “Better to arrive on time than earlier. How about this? Let me treat you to a meal, ok
Upon seeing this, Gu Nian laughed, “Don’t be shocked. I meant I like you as a friend.” That was what it was. Liang Xinwei let out a secret sigh of relief. She looked at Fang Yuchen despite herself. However, he was looking down, his expression blank. It was impossible to tell what was on his mind. Disappointment filled her heart for a moment. She smiled bitterly, who was she to him? Why would he react? “You only like her as a friend?” Ye Xiaoyi followed up with an intentional question. She did not believe that a man could like a woman simply as a friend. Without waiting for Gu Nian to reply, Fang Yuchen spoke first, “Do you still want to eat? If not, I’d like to go.” His expression was cold, his eyes devoid of warmth. Ye Xiaoyi could not help but shudder. She hurriedly said, “Yes, of course we’ll eat.” Fang Yuchen glanced at Liang Xinwei from the corner of his eye. There was an imperceptible emotion in them. When Gu Nian had said the word ‘like’, his nerves had i
They looked at each other. The air around them seemed to freeze, and a strange atmosphere filled the room. “Mom.” The sudden voice shocked both adults. They hurriedly looked away. “What’s wrong?” Liang Xinwei stood and walked to Anan who stood at the door to his room. “I don’t know how to answer this question.” “I see.” Liang XInwei turned to look at Fang Yuchen in the living room. She thought about it and said gently, “Anan, do the others first. I’ll come and help you later, okay?” “Okay.” Anan turned and returned to his room. At that moment, Fang Yuchen stood, “It’s late, I shouldn’t disturb the both of you.” Liang Xinwei was stunned, but she quickly reacted and said, “Actually…” She wanted to say that it was fine, but she also felt it would be inappropriate. She changed her tune and said, “Have a safe trip.” “Okay.” Fang Yuchen smiled and nodded. Liang Xinwei walked him to the door and watched as he got into the elevator before she went home. In the mom
Who was it? Shang Ying got out of the car and walked towards the other car. Tap tap- She knocked on the window. The car window slowly rolled down to reveal the outline of a foreigner’s face. Shang Ying frowned, and used her rusty English to ask, “Can I know who you are?” Bo Gelian looked at her and raised his eyebrows as he asked in reply, “Are you someone who lives here?” Hearing familiar Mandarin, Shang Ying was very surprised, “It turns out you can speak Mandarin. Yes, that’s right, I live here.” “Oh.” Bo Gelian nodded and smiled, “I’m Sese’s friend.” “Sese’s friend?” Shang Ying frowned. She had never heard of Sese having a foreign friend. At that moment the gate opened and Jiang Sese came running out. “Aunty Shang Ying.” Seeing Shang Ying standing next to Bo Gelian’s car, she was pale with fear. She rushed forwards and pulled her away, looking warily at the man in the car. “Sese, what’s going on?” Shang Ying had a confused expression on her face. She did n
Fang Yuchen was very opposed to the idea when he found out that Jiang Sese was going to be Bo Gelian’s date. “No way, you must not go.” Jiang Sese laughed softly, her voice full of helplessness. “Cousin, I can’t simply decide not to go. Furthermore, he’s promised me that as long as I go, he will let me reunite with Fengchen.” If it were not for this, why would she agree in the first place?“You believe him?” Fang Yuchen looked at her in disbelief. She should know better than him just what kind of person Bo Gelian was. “I don’t, but I agreed for Fengchen.” Jiang Sese took a deep breath. “As long as I can save him, I’d willingly go, even if it’s perilous.” She was especially adamant. Even if it was a slim chance, she did not want to let it slip. Fang Yuchen opened his mouth, thinking to dissuade her, but the words that came out were, “Fine. I’ll go with you.” “You?” Jiang Sese frowned. “Can you go?” “Of course.” Fang Yuchen smiled. “Need I remind you I’m the President
As soon as she returned to the restaurant, Liang Xinwei went to see the manager. “Manager, I’d like to take the day off.” “Is anything wrong?” the manager put down the cup in her hand and asked worriedly when she saw Liang Xinwei’s poor complexion. “I don’t feel well.” The manager nodded her head. “Okay, go home and rest then.” “Thank you.” Liang Xinwei turned and went to the changing room to change out of her uniform. “Weiwei, did something happen?” The coworker peeked her head through the door and looked at her worriedly. Liang Xinwei turned her head and forced a smile. “I’m fine.” “Is that so?” Her coworker walked in and looked her over. “Did that aunty say something to you?” Liang Xinwei’s hands paused in the midst of hanging her clothes. She then hung her clothes and shook her head while smiling. “No.” “Impossible.” The coworker stared at her. “That aunty must have said something. If not, why would you suddenly feel unwell for no reason?” “Nothing happened.
Shang Ying sighed heavily. “If your cousin would’ve just listened to me, I would not have gone to see Weiwei.” She knew her son the best, and knew that he was a very stubborn person. It would be difficult to change what he had decided on. “That’s true.” Jiang Sese nodded in agreement. “However, when it comes to matters of the heart, others are never able to change one’s opinion. Aunty, you best be prepared.” “I know that. I’ve organized a party and asked Xiaoyi to attend. I’ll find a way to get her with Yuchen.” Seeing Shang Ying’s confident expression, Jiang Sese frowned. “Aunty, you cannot keep on forcing them together. If not, Yuchen will just keep coming into conflict with Ye Xiaoyi.” “Don’t worry, it won’t happen.” Even though Shang Ying said that, Jiang Sese was still quite worried. She might do something shocking to get Yuchen and Ye Xiaoyi together. Perhaps she should warn her cousin. …Fang Yuchen had clocked out of work earlier for the ball tonight.“Sese,
Jiang Sese’s struggles were futile, and she could only let herself be dragged into the elevator. She clenched her fists tightly, her mind racing. She could not just sit around and wait for her doom; she had to find a way to save herself. Ding! The elevator reached the 22nd floor. As soon as the doors opened, the two foreigners led Jiang Sese out. There was a thick carpet on the floor of the hallway, so no sound was made when one walked over it. In the light of the setting sun, a boundless sense of loneliness washed over her. Jiang Sese clenched her fists even tighter. The two men stopped in front of the door to a room. As soon as the door was opened, they shoved Jiang Sese inside. Caught off guard, she stumbled heavily onto the floor. Luckily, the floor was carpeted. She hurriedly climbed to her feet and looked up to see Bo Gelian standing in front of the windows which reached from ceiling to ground.Her heart skipped a beat despite herself. She did her best to ask
