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
“Hello, Mr. Jing.” Bo Gelian smiled politely. “This must be the first time you’ve joined a ball in the country.” Jing Liuyue said with a smile. Bo Gelian nodded, “Yes, it is.” “Are you not going to introduce your date?” Jing Liuyue pointed at Jiang Sese who stood next to him and asked. “This is my Venus, Sophia.” Bo Gelian wrapped an arm around Jiang Sese’s waist tightly and he smiled widely as he introduced her. When Jing Liuyue saw this, there was a glint in Jing Liuyue’s eyes, and the smile on his face deepened. “Hello, Ms. Sophia.” Was he pretending not to know her? Jiang Sese hid the curiosity in her heart and smiled. She said calmly, “Hello.” “Mr. Bo Gelian, might I borrow your date for a moment?” Jing Liuyue pretended to ask casually. “Hm?” Bo Gelian frowned. Jing Liuyue arched his brows and gestured for him to look somewhere nearby. “Over there is someone my mother arranged for me to get to know. I don’t like her, so…” He gave Jiang Sese a pointed look.
He said he believed her, but in his heart, he did not. Jiang Sese laughed lightly, “Bo Gelian, you’re being paranoid. I wouldn’t even bother trying to lie to you.” The smile on Bo Gelian’s face instantly froze, and his expression grew somewhat darker. Jiang Sese turned and smiled apologetically at aJing Liuyue, “Mr. Jing, I apologize. I’m afraid I cannot help you anymore.” She did not want to give anyone any trouble. It was best not to drag Jing Liuyue into this. “Sister… no, Ms. Jiang. Can’t you help me out a little?” Jing Liuyue nearly exposed his relationship with Jiang Sese. Luckily, he managed to catch himself in time. “I’m sorry.” Even though Jing Liuyue was very anxious to get her out of there, but Jiang Sese had her reasons for saying what she said so he could not comment much about it. He could only nod, “Alright, I’ll find someone else then.” He turned to walk inside, looking at Jiang Sese from time to time, afraid that Bo Gelian would give her a hard time
Liang Xinwei had accompanied Ye Chenyun around the Capital, and they had gone to almost every famous spot in the city. “Weiwei, thank you so much for today.” Ye Chenyun sent Liang Xinwei home. The car was parked in front of the entrance to the neighbourhood. He immediately turned to thank Liang Xinwei. Liang Xinwei simply smiled faintly, “Don’t worry about it.” As soon as she said that, she opened the car door to get out. “Weiwei.” Ye Chenyun grabbed her wrist suddenly. Liang Xinwei looked back and looked at him, puzzled. “Is there anything else?” “Weiwei, I know you know about my relationship with your sister…” Ye Chenyun paused, a hesitant expression on his face, as though he had something that he could not say. “Big Brother Ye, say what’s on your mind.” Ye Chenyun looked into her clear eyes, his heart full of emotion. He should not have agreed to Ye Xiaoyi’s request that he chase Weiwei. He only treated Weiwei as a brother would a little sister, and never as a ma
The next day, Jiang Sese was up at the crack of dawn. Fang Yuchen had just gotten home from his morning exercise. He was quite surprised to see her up, “What are you up so early for?” “I want to go to the airport and keep watch.” Just in case the people keeping an eye on the airport had a lapse in concentration and allowed Shangguan Yuan to successfully get away, it would cause a lot of problems. She needed to go and see for herself. “Sese, you don’t trust me.” Fang Yuchen had an exasperated look on his face. Jiang Sese shook her head, “Yuchen, that’s not it. I just… I just really miss Fengchen.” “Sese, I know you miss Fengchen, but if you go to the scene and some kind of altercation happens, everyone’s attention will be divided as they need to protect you, do you know?” “I will wait quietly in the car.” No matter what Fang Yuchen said, Jiang Sese insisted on going to the airport. Helpless, Fang Yuchen could only agree. “Fine, I’ll arrange for a few extra hands to k
“I…” Liang Xinwei suddenly did not know what to say. That was right, what had happened to her? “Is it difficult to talk about?” Jiang Sese thought that she could not speak, and gently assured her, “Just say it, don’t worry.” Liang Xinwei’s heart felt even more guilty at how gentle Jiang Sese was, and how she was lying to her. “Sister Sese, actually I…” She wanted to tell the truth, but Fang Yuchen’s face flashed in her mind, and she could only sigh and said, “I’ve got love problems.” “Love problems?” Jiang Sese frowned, “What is it? Could you tell me more?” “I… I’ve got someone I like.” Liang Xinwei looked down, her hands clenching into fists anxiously. She actually did like someone, so that was not a lie. It helped her feel a bit better. Jiang Sese did not push her, and simply looked at her silently. A while later, she finally said, “Is it someone I know?” When Liang Xinwei heard this, she looked up and met Jiang Sese’s caring gaze. She looked away in guilt, “Yeah,
