Jiang Sese received a phone call from Jin Fengchen after her dinner.The phone kept ringing, but Jiang Sese couldn’t bring herself to pick it up. When the ringing finally stopped a few moments later, Jiang Sese heaved a sigh.She still didn’t know how to face Jin Fengchen. The thought of the conversation with Mother Jin and what had happened a few years ago left Jiang Sese feeling overwhelmed...That night, Jiang Sese tossed and turned in bed, but sleep escaped her....The following morning, Jiang Sese was able to calm herself down and went to work as usual.That project with the Lu Group didn't go through. Lu Zheng eventually moved on from the Jin Group and chose another company. It was almost finalized.Su Shan commended Jiang Sese openly during the morning meeting and had promised her a generous bonus at the end of the month. Jiang Sese's fellow colleagues had also expressed their appreciation for her work.The project with the Lu Group was a major one and no one had expect
Su Qingyin blanched a little. She had expected to hear the denial from Jin Fengchen in front of others, but the words still upset her.She sighed, recalling what had happened the previous night during the family dinner.An Qing was surprised as well. "Baseless rumor? So, there is no wedding after all?" He stared at the couple in disbelief.However, An Qing didn't keep his voice down and the hall was very crowded. Almost immediately, the news of Su Qingyin and Jin Fengchen's approaching wedding spread out."Have you heard? Young Master Jin and Miss Su are getting married.""I already knew that. Yesterday, I saw their families having dinner together. I bet they were making wedding plans.""Wow! I can't imagine the iceberg Young Master Jin getting married! Miss Su is incredible. She has conquered the famous Young Master Jin!""They are perfect for each other and meant to be together. I bet it's going to be a big, fat wedding! I can't wait to see it!""That's right! They're like a
Holding Jiang Zhen's arm, Jiang Nuannuan casually said, "Dad, aren't we trying to work with the Liang Family at the moment?"Jiang Zhen nodded and looked at Jiang Nuannuan in bewilderment."That's right. Why?"The Jiang Family was indeed planning to strike up a deal with the Liang Group. Although Jiang Zhen had known the CEO of the Liang Group for a long time, the latter had been hesitant because of all the negative news of the Jiang Family recently.Jiang Zhen had been trying to persuade the Liang Group.However, the Liang Group's CEO was a stubborn man and he didn't see the Jiang Group as an ideal business partner at the moment...Jiang Nuannuan smiled. "How about we set him up with my sister? She's been dumped by Young Master Jin, anyway. With her married into the Liang Family, the Jiang Group will get the contract and she'll get to live a comfortable life. I say that's enough compensation for what she has gone through over the past few years. Don't you think so, Brother Siche
"What's wrong with you people?! Since when is my marriage your concern?"Jiang Sese had always known how shameless this family of four was, but she couldn't believe what she had just heard. They wanted to marry her to a middle-aged man? What were they thinking?Jiang Nuannuan smiled. "Sister, don't say that. Look, Dad wants you to be happy, that's all. I know you're in love with Mr. Jin, but as you can see, he doesn't care about you. He's with Miss Su now. I met their families only last night and they were planning their marriage over dinner!"Jiang Zhen chimed in. "That's right! Sese, it's about time you find yourself a husband. You're not getting any younger. The Jin Family is beyond our reach, but I've known Mr. Liang for a long time. He's a good choice."Jiang Zhen acted like any normal father. If one didn't know better, they would think that he was sincere to consider his daughter.Jiang Sese's face darkened, and the sight of those four people disgusted her. She said coldly,
Seeing that Lan Sichen was going to take Jiang Nuannuan away, Jiang Sese moved into their path. Glancing at Jiang Nuannuan, who had curled up in Lan Sichen's arm, Jiang Sese said in a cold voice, "How about we pull the surveillance video and see if I have really pushed her? I swear I didn't even touch her."The Jiang Family had provoked her repeatedly, and after Jiang Nuannuan tried to frame her again tonight, Jiang Sese decided that she had had enough.She was going to clear her name in front of all these people.Lan Sichen had a grim look on his face. "Jiang Sese, stop making excuses. Everyone here saw it. You pushed Nuannuan when all she did was try to hold your hand and ask you to apologize to your dad. Did you have to do that?""I'm going to check the surveillance footage. Are you too scared to do that?"She knew perfectly well that she had moved away before Jiang Nuannuan could take her hand. She didn't even touch her, let alone push her away.Jiang Sese's persistence made
Jiang Sese watched in bewilderment. The comments from the bystanders and the false accusations from the Jiang Family made her feel awful.However, such things had happened many times over the years and Jiang Sese had gotten used to them.But now, someone had stood up for her. Jiang Sese was touched.But Shen Shulan was still screaming like a shrew."President Jin, are you trying to get my grandson killed? I know that you want to protect Jiang Sese, but this is a life we're talking about here!"Curled up in Lan Sichen's arms, Jiang Nuannuan feigned a pleading voice as she said, "Sister, please don't do this. It's all our fault. We shouldn't have offended you. Please talk to President Jin and let us leave."Jiang Sese ignored her. She knew perfectly well that Jiang Nuannuan only said that so that they could escape, but Jiang Sese had made up her mind. She would get to the bottom of this.The hubbub of noises had attracted a lot of attention and nearly all the guests had gathered a
The crowd felt sorry for Jiang Sese as they watched her leave, and everyone started talking."That family is the worst! How can a father treat his daughters so differently?""That's so true. And that sister of hers is so fake! She's using her unborn baby to set her sister up! She doesn't deserve to be a mother. And she had even stolen her sister's man. How shameless.""That Young Master Lan is no angel either. He cheated on his fiancee with her own sister.""They're not the perfect couple I first thought they were, but two scumbags. I've never met someone this brazen before. They disgust me.""I'm with you. Just steer clear of those two families from now on, especially in business. With those kinds of moral standards, you'll never know the scam that they'll run on you!"...Embarrassed by the comments, the Jiang Family and Lan Sichen wished that the ground would open up so that they could hide inside.Liang Tianhao was equally surprised. He had no idea what kind of people he wa
Jing Fengchen frowned at what he heard. He only realized then that Jiang Sese had lived a much harder life than he had known or imagined.He felt sorry for her. If only he had met Jiang Sese earlier, he would have been able to make her life much easier.At that thought, Jin Fengchen pulled Jiang Sese into his arms and said in his deep, mesmerizing voice, "It's all in the past now. They're not worth holding grudges over. Forget about them."Jiang Sese smiled, and then sipped her wine. Her beautiful face looked somewhat unapproachable."That's right! It's all in the past. But I just don't understand, why won't they leave me alone? Why do they keep doing such things to me? Do I look like an easy target? Do they want to see me suffer?"Jiang Sese had lost count of the time those people picked on her since she left the Jiang Family.Would they only stop after they drove her to death?Jin Fengchen held Jiang Sese even tighter."I'm here for you. No one will ever pick on you again."
