Mr. Ye was stumped, perhaps because he did not imagine that Fang Yuchen would be that direct. “Yuchen, is this the way you treat your elders?” Fang Teng rebuked him. “Dad,” Fang Yuchen turned and looked at him in exasperation, “I really don’t like Xiaoyi, can you please not try to get us together?” “Since you think Xiaoyi is good, why don’t you try and see, perhaps you might like her.” Fang Teng insisted on pairing them together. “Impossible.” Fang Yuchen’s tone was very calm. “Old Fang, it would seem that we’ve gotten ahead of ourselves.” Mr. Ye’s tone of voice was not as friendly as it used to be. He glared at Fang Yuchen, the displeasure clear on his face. Their dear, beloved daughter was desirable to so many eligible bachelors, but that brat Fang Yuchen had rejected her! That was too insensitive! “Old Ye, don’t say that. The kid’s not got his head screwed on straight.” Fang Teng hurriedly said to smooth things over. He had such a humble attitude not because the Fa
The situation was a little tense. Liang Xinwei clenched her little fists before she immediately relaxed them. She forcefully pushed Fang Yuchen’s hand away, “Mr. Fang, I’m sorry, I cannot help you.” As soon as she said that, she walked over to Ye Chenyun’s side and looked up at him with a smile, “Chenyun and I’s relationship is very stable. Therefore I apologize, but I cannot help you with this.” Ye Chenyun frowned, his eyes full of confusion, what was she doing? “Weiwei.” Fang Yuchen reached out to try and grab her, but she stepped away. She turned, her eyes glinting coldly and her tone of voice calm, “Mr. Fang, I understand you want to resist your parents’ arranged marriage, but I hope that you can handle this the correct way, and not through deceit. In any case, because of a lie you’ll need to cover it up with countless lies.” Fang Yuchen laughed in frustration, “Weiwei, do you know what you’re talking about?” Liang Xinwei ignored him, and turned to say to Ye Chenyun,
When Liang Xinwei got home, her phone rang as soon as she got past the door. It was the manager. She picked up, “Manager.” “Weiwei, where are you? You’re about to go up.” It was only then that Liang Xinwei realized that she needed to go up on stage on behalf of the restaurant, but she was already home. “Manager, I’m sorry. I went home because I wasn’t feeling well. You’ll need to find someone else.” “Why didn’t you tell me that you were going home first?” “I’m sorry.” Liang Xinwei did not know what else to say other than to apologize. Fortunately the manager was a reasonable person. She sighed and said, “It’s fine. Rest well, I’ll find someone else to fill in.” “Thank you, manager.” After she hung up, she threw her phone on the sofa and took a seat. She leaned back into the sofa and looked up at the ceiling. Anan heard the movement and opened the door to his room and peeked out. When he saw Liang Xinwei in the living room he immediately walked over to her. “Mo
After breakfast, Jiang Sese followed Aunty Chen upstairs. “Shu Yun, this is the Young Miss’ room. Everything in here is precious, so you need to be careful not to break anything, got it?” Aunty Chen said. Jiang Sese nodded, “Okay.” “Take your time then. I’m going downstairs, call me if you need me.” Jiang Sese watched Aunty Chen walk downstairs before she entered the room and looked around. The key color of the room was ash blue with European style furniture. The European theme of the room was quite beautiful and it fit well with Shangguan Yuan’s esthetics. Only, this was the room Jin Fengchen stayed in for now. When Jiang Sese thought about it, she took in a deep breath, the unique, clear smell that belonged to Jin Fengchen’s body was in the air. Her emotions instantly became conflicted. Her man was sleeping in another woman’s bed. Even though they were not sleeping in the same room, it was still revolting to the heart. She looked at the large bed in the centre of th
Shangguan Yuan watched as Jiang Sese left, and she pondered thoughtfully for a moment, examining the man opposite her closely. “Why did you arrange for Shu Yun to take care of Fengchen?” Shangguan Qian stopped in his motion of picking up some food with his chopsticks, before he continued as he said, “Like I said before, she’s the most intelligent of all the new maids.” “Is that so?” Shangguan Yuan’s eyes narrowed, “You best not have any schemes, or else I…” “What will you do then?” Shangguan Qian interrupted her as he put his chopsticks down and smiled disdainfully, “You’re not going to let me get away with it, or are you going to retake control of the Shangguan group?” Shangguan Yuan frowned deeply. She truthfully only wanted to give him a warning, she did not intend to do anything to him. “I’m done eating, go on without me.” Shangguan Qian stood and walked out of the dining hall without looking back. “Is your brother angry?” Jin Fengchen asked. Shangguan Yuan smil
“Fine, you insist on not telling the truth. Don’t blame me for not being merciful.” Shangguan Yuan glared coldly at Jiang Sese and called for Aunty Chen. “Aunty Chen, come and tell me, did she take the necklace?” “This…” Aunty Chen looked at Jiang Sese in clear distress. She then looked at Shangguan Qian and mumbled, “Actually, I… I also… don’t know.” Shangguan Yuan’s face instantly turned frosty when she heard this, and she said in a low voice, “Aunty Chen!” Aunty Chen quivered, before she blurted, “Yes, I saw Shu Yun take the Young Miss’ necklace.” “Aunty Chen, do you know what you’re saying?” Shu Yun looked at her in disbelief. Aunty Chen averted from her gaze and lowered her eyes. She wrung her hands in nervousness. Shangguan Qian frowned deeply, “Aunty Chen, are you telling the truth?” He knew Shu Yun’s true identity, so he could definitely confirm that she would not steal Yuanyuan’s necklace. However, Aunty Chen accused her of taking it, which complicated thin
Jiang Sese returned to the room and sat down on the edge of the bed. Recalling what had happened just now, she let out a long sigh of relief.Fortunately, she got through that daunting experience without further mishap.If she got kicked out of the Shangguan residence, it would be very hard for her to see Fengchen again.Nevertheless, how did she provoke Shangguan Yuan to the point that she devised such a way to drive her away?After much deliberation, she still could not figure it out. She could only figure that Shangguan Yuan did not like how she looked.Seeing Jiang Sese compromis and return to her room, Shangguan Yuan was still a little unwilling, but she did not say anything. Just as she wanted to head upstairs, she was held back by Shangguan Qian.“Yuanyuan, why did you do that?”Shangguan Yuan pulled her hand away and turned to stare at him coldly. Her red lips parted. “I hate her. Is that reason enough for you?”Shangguan Qian raised the corners of his lips helplessly.
“It’s alright if you don’t want to tell me.”Jin Fengchen did not insist and turned his head to look into the distance. His mouth twitched. “Shu Yun, do you tend to trust someone in particular for no reason?”Jiang Sese thought for a while. “Yes, my husband.”“I don’t mean that. I mean someone you barely know, yet somehow, still trust inexplicably.”“I have as well.” Jiang Sese grinned. “You.”A hint of surprise flashed in his eyes. Jin Fengchen stared at her radiant smiling face. It was as if something floated across his heart, causing shallow ripples.He quickly withdrew his gaze and chuckled. “I'm glad to have your trust.”“You obviously saw me before, but you didn't tell the Young Miss. Thank you very much.”Jin Fengchen raised his eyebrows. “You trust me because of that?”“I guess so.”‘The fact was, I trust you because you are the person I love.’Jiang Sese secretly said this in her mind.“Thank you,” said Jin Fengchen.Jiang Sese smiled back. She clasped her hands t
