Chapter 12 Easily Cared For

After thinking about it, Jiang Sese deemed it impossible.

It was Jin Fengchen, after all! The President of the Jin Group! How could a nobleman like him come and fetch her personally?

He probably meant that he was waiting for her outside her home.

The more she thought about it, the more plausible this thought became. Not daring to tarry, she hastily packed up and exited the building. She wanted to hail a cab and go home.

The night was still early and there were still many cars on the road. However, for some reason, she couldn't see an empty cab even after waiting for a long while.

When she was about to panic, a black Bentley quietly stopped beside her.

The car window slid down, revealing two faces—one older, one younger.

Both faces were similarly delicate and perfect. It was as if the younger one was a miniature version of the older one.

The older one had the face of a deity; the younger one was too cute for words. Two short, fleshy arms emerged from the car and waved at her happily. "Auntie Sese, we're here to pick you up."

Jiang Sese was pleasantly surprised. She immediately walked up to the car and grabbed his little hands. Her gaze shifted to the man inside the car. "Mr. Jin, you didn't have to come here personally. I could have met you at home."

"Don't worry about it. Get in first."

Jin Fengchen loosened his necktie and shifted deeper into the car.

Jiang Sese hesitated for a beat before forcing herself to get in.

She never thought that he would really come!

After getting in the car, Xiaobao rubbed against her legs and asked for a hug.

Jiang Sese was only too happy to oblige. When she pulled him into her embrace, all she could feel was a cloudlike softness.

Jin Fengchen gracefully rolled up his sleeves and asked nonchalantly, "Have you had dinner?"

"Not yet," Jiang Sese replied just as nonchalantly. Then, with a shock, she asked, "What about you two? Have you eaten?"

She was so busy with work that she had forgotten to eat. She didn't want Xiaobao to starve along with her.

Jin Fengchen seemed like he could read her mind. "Xiaobao ate some bread earlier, but I haven't eaten anything."

"That's good." Jiang Sese heaved a sigh of relief. She said a little apologetically, "I'm sorry. I didn't do it on purpose."

"It's all right. I'm not hungry."

Xiaobao rubbed his head against her like a good boy.

His action made her laugh. She caressed his head in response.

For some reason, when Jin Fengchen watched them react, a hint of warmth rippled through his typically cold eyes.

He said placidly, "I've made a booking for us at a restaurant. Let's eat out tonight."

"You're too polite…"

Jiang Sese hesitated. She had the strangest feeling, yet she couldn't describe it.

"What the heck is this sense of deja vu about a family of three dining together?"

Jin Fengchen didn't let her reject him. "You don't have to feel embarrassed. Xiaobao and I have imposed on you for two days, after all. This dinner means nothing."

Midway into their conversation, the car pulled up in front of a Chinese restaurant.

Jiang Sese carried Xiaobao out from the car and saw the restaurant's sign: "Wanjing Pavilion".

That was the name of an incredibly famous restaurant.

This was a place well-known in and outside of Jin City. The interior of the pavilion was elegant and the exterior was pleasingly antique. The dishes were indisputable delicacies. Every major food magazine in the country fell over themselves to publish a feature on this restaurant. It was said that one had to book two months in advance for a table here.

Jiang Sese would never spend her money to dine in a place like this.

Yet, she could now enjoy herself thanks to this father and son.

The three of them walked shoulder-to-shoulder into the restaurant. The waiter welcomed them into a private room.

The menu rested on the dining table. Jin Fengchen asked Jiang Sese, "Miss Jiang, is there any food that you abstain from?"

She shook her head. "No, I can eat everything."

This woman was so easily cared for!

Jin Fengchen raised the corners of his mouth ever so slightly. "Then I will order as I see fit."

He ordered four dishes off the menu, just enough for the three of them. Even if they couldn't finish, there wouldn't be too much food wasted.

While they were waiting to be served, Jin Fengchen sat there without moving or saying a word.

Jiang Sese was chatting with Xiaobao, so she didn't feel awkward.

When the dishes were served, Jin Fengchen took the initiative to say, "Are you always this busy?"

"Not really. I used to do odd jobs, so I'm never busy. I'm only a little preoccupied because of a sudden project," she replied. She paused briefly before continuing, "Speaking of this, thank you for your willingness to give me this chance."

"You don't need to thank me," Jin Fengchen said. "I'm not the one who gave you the chance. Xiaobao was the one who chose you."

"Is that so?" Jiang Sese was skeptical. She didn't seem to believe him.

Jin Fengchen sipped some tea and said elegantly, "Of course."

Jiang Sese blinked. She then accepted his words as a matter of fact.

It didn't matter whether it was him or Xiaobao. It was all the same.

Nonetheless, her heart was warm. She was even more determined to perfect the birthday celebration.

They soon finished dinner and left the restaurant together.

Xiaobao was so worried that he would be dragged home that he held tightly onto Jiang Sese's legs with both hands and hid behind her. He looked at his father with extreme caution.

For some reason, this amused Jin Fengchen. He told Jiang Sese, "Let's go. I will take you two home."

She looked at him suspiciously. "Is he going to spend the night at my place again?"

As Jin Fengchen caught sight of her expression from the corner of his eye, interest flickered in his pupils. "Don't worry. I have some business to attend to, so I won't be disturbing you tonight."

Jiang Sese couldn't help blushing when she heard what he said. Her expression became awkward.

Barely detectable amusement crossed his eyes as he opened the car door for her.

Half an hour later, the car arrived at Furong Park. Jin Fengchen only left after watching Jiang Sese carry Xiaobao into her home.

The car sped against the backdrop of the night sky, ferrying him back to his luxurious abode.

This was the most well-known neighborhood of villas in Jin City. The residents were all wealthy and respectable folks.

After parking the car in the garage, Jin Fengchen headed straight into the house.

The housekeeper went up to him respectfully upon seeing him and took his jacket from his hand. "Welcome back, Young Master."

"Hmm." Jin Fengchen nodded without emotion as he took off his shoes and put on slippers.

He had just put the slippers on when he heard hasty footsteps inside and saw Jin Fengyao and a middle-aged but noble-looking woman dressed in a qipao running toward him.

"Brother, why did you come home so late?" Jin Fengyao asked without thinking.

The noble-looking woman didn't even spare him a glance. She scanned his surroundings before asking, "Where's my baby Xiaobao? Why didn't he come home with you?"

Jin Fengchen frowned at her. "Why did you come back in advance? Didn't Dad say that you will only arrive in a few days?"

The noble-looking woman replied impatiently, "I can't wait any longer. I miss my baby Xiaobao. Where is he? Where did you put him?"

"Oh, right. Brother, where is Xiaobao?" Jin Fengyao asked, confused. "Don't tell me you lost him. Mom and Dad didn't even return to the main residence after landing and came here straight away."

Jin Fengyao replied calmly, "He's… he's staying with a friend."

"What? You left Xiaobao with a friend? Which friend? No way! Our Xiaobao doesn't like strangers! What if he wakes up at night and cries?"

The noble-looking woman, Madam Jin, was exasperated to hear his answer. "You damn kid! What kind of father are you? You're too relaxed! Bring Xiaobao home right now."

Jin Fengyao found his mother's words to be reasonable and echoed her sentiments. "That's right. Brother, how can you leave your child outside? He's so cute. What if someone kidnaps him?"

Master Jin came over after hearing all the commotion and happened to hear Jin Fengyao as soon as he stepped into the house. Stunned, he asked, "What's going on? Is your friend a man or a woman?"

Jin Fengchen rubbed his aching forehead. "A woman!"
