“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,
Liang Xinwei walked out to see Jiang Sese place her phone on the coffee table.She hurriedly ran over, “Sister Sese, you…” “Hm?” Jiang Sese turned to meet her questioning gaze, and smiled. “My cousin called you. I saw it was him calling and got worried that something was happening, so I picked up for you.” “I see.” Liang Xinwei sighed in relief and took her phone. She pursed her lips and pretended to ask out of hand, “Did he say anything?” “Nope. He was just asking if I’m with you.” “Just that?” Fang Yuchen had definitely called to ask about Sister Sese, and she hoped he hadn’t revealed his hand but accident. However, seeing Sese’s normal expression, she was probably still in the dark. “Yeah, just that.” Jiang Sese stood up, “Shall we go?” “Sure.” Liang Xinwei grabbed her bag, “Let’s go.” …Jiang Sese did not expect to meet someone she did not want to while buying a dinner dress. Liang Xinwei had brought a dinner dress she had picked out into the changing room.
Ye Xiaoyi did not think that she would be this blunt. She instantly felt embarrassed and enraged and she exclaimed, “Jiang Sese, don’t think I won’t dare to do anything to you because you’re Yuchen’s cousin.” Jiang Sese laughed, “This is your real self, isn’t it?” “You!” Ye Xiaoyi only then realized that she was trying to provoke her. “Ms. Ye, don’t think that just because you act all goody two shoes in front of me, I’ll have a good impression of you. I’ve known your true self from the first time we met.” Jiang Sese gave her a cold look, and then turned to look at Liang Xinwei, “Since you like this dress, I’ll buy it for you.” Liang Xinwei shook her head frantically when she heard this, “No, I won’t get it.” She would not dare to accept such an expensive gift. “Why not?” Jiang Sese frowned. “Sister Sese, I acknowledge your intentions, but it’s too expensive, I cannot take it.” Ye Xiaoyi scoffed in disdain when she heard Liang Xinwei’s words. She said mockingly, “Sin
Liang Xinwei was taken aback for a moment, “I…”Afraid that she would take it seriously, Jiang Sese quickly said, “Actually, I lied to Ye Xiaoyi. I have no idea if my cousin has someone he likes.”Liang Xinwei simply said, ‘Oh,’ and did not say anything else.“All right, let's go to another store.” Jiang Sese took her arm and walked on.“Sister Sese, there’s no need to look anymore.” Liang Xinwei pulled her back.Jiang Sese frowned, “Why not?”“The dresses are very expensive and I can't afford them. When the time comes, I will probably take a day off and not attend the party.”Although she was downplaying it, it was clear that she actually really wanted to go.Jiang Sese pondered for a moment, “I could loan it to you.”Liang Xinwei shook her head incessantly, “No, Sister Sese. I don't know when I would be able to pay you back.”Even if she paid back the money, she would not be able to pay back the favor.Jiang Sese laughed, “I meant loan you a gown, not the money, silly.”“
