Xu Na didn't believe a word Jiang Sese said about her having no relationship with Jin Fengchen."You can't fool me, Sister Sese. I can tell how President Jin feels about you. He was so nervous when you fainted at the banquet last time and he even drove you here to work this morning. And you're telling me now it's not what I think? I mean, even if you don't like him, you can still choose Mr. Lu!"Seeing that Jiang Sese would go on a blind date when there were two perfectly good men to choose from, Xu Na really wanted to beat some sense into her.Jiang Sese gave her a wry smile, and then said in resignation, "I know they both are excellent men, but that doesn't make them mine."Jiang Sese was convinced that Jin Fengchen didn't belong to her. As for Lu Zheng, she didn't want to give him any false hope either. She knew that she probably would never be able to reciprocate his feelings, which was why she would never use Lu Zheng as a replacement.Seeing the look on Jiang Sese's face, Xu
Jin Fengchen was here to meet a client, and he went straight to the reserved table after he walked in. He didn't see Jiang Sese, but his sharp-eyed assistant did."Sir, isn't that Miss Jiang over there?"Jin Fengchen looked in that direction and was surprised to find the familiar figure. He then saw that Jiang Sese wasn't alone, but had a man sitting opposite her. The two of them were chatting in a cheerful mood. Jin Fengchen wondered what it was about.He frowned, and then asked in his mellow voice, "Who's that man?"The assistant shook his head and then asked, "Sir, shall I ask around?"After some thought, Jin Fengchen nodded.The client Jin Fengchen was meeting arrived shortly after his assistant left. Throughout their dinner, Jin Fengchen kept darting glances at Jiang Sese. He recognized the woman next to her as her assistant and thought that Jiang Sese was here to meet a client.However, on second thought, he realized that Jiang Sese had only just recovered and there was no
Back at the restaurant, the assistant watched as Jiang Sese and the other two left. His president's face had turned livid, but he had remained in his seat.The assistant was baffled by his reaction. Even after Jiang Sese was gone, Jin Fengchen was still talking with the client.The client had been on tenterhooks the whole time, fearing that he might say the wrong thing and offend Jin Fengchen.After dinner, they left the restaurant and Jin Fengchen gave his assistant the instruction, "Go find out what that was about.""Why did Jiang Sese go on a blind date all of a sudden? Was she forced?" Jing Fengchen found the whole thing very odd.The assistant nodded, but he couldn't help asking, "Sir, aren't you going to talk to Miss Jiang?""Ask Jiang Sese, and all questions will be answered. Maybe it's just a misunderstanding!""Not now," said Jin Fengchen, pursing his lips.The assistant was confused. "He obviously cares about it a lot. Why won't he ask her?" However, the grim look on
Jiang Sese only stayed in the antique shop for a while before going back home.There was still no message from Jin Fengchen, so Jiang Sese thought he had to be busy at work.However, Jiang Sese recalled that no matter how busy Jin Fengchen was, he had never been radio silent for this long, which bewildered her. Thinking about it again, she couldn't help laughing at herself. "I was the one pushing him away and I can't stop thinking about him now?" Jiang Sese realized that even a message from him would make her very happy.Jiang Sese tossed and turned in bed that night.Jin Fengchen didn't visit her for the next few days, nor did Xiaobao. The little guy called Jiang Sese from time to time, but neither the father nor the son showed up at her place.Wei Qingfeng, on the other hand, asked her out for dinner, but she turned him down, for Su Shan gave her a lot of work all of a sudden.At the moment, Jiang Sese was talking to Wei Qingfeng on the phone and she sounded apologetic. "Mr. We
"Don't get so preoccupied that you ruin your health. You haven't eaten, have you?" Lu Zheng's concerned voice continued to enter her ears."Yep… I got it. Thank you, Senior. I will go home once I get this done."Jiang Sese hung up the phone and picked up the pace in settling the issues in her proposal.It was almost 11 p.m. by the time she was all packed up and ready to go home. She was feeling a little light-headed and unwell. Perhaps it was because she was so busy the entire day that she hadn't eaten until now.When she got downstairs, she saw a black car waiting outside. Moonlight fell on a man dressed in a black suit leaning against the vehicle. He had his back toward her, preventing her from getting a look at his face.The man had a similar physique to Jin Fengchen. For a moment, she thought it was him.It wasn't until she approached the man that she realized it was Lu Zheng.Disappointment inexplicably filled her heart. She couldn't help berating herself for failing to let
Jin Fengchen stared squarely at Jiang Sese, looking at her pale face and overall weak demeanor. Somehow, she looked like she had gotten much thinner in the few days that they had not met.Jiang Sese was bewildered to hear that it was she who had called him. Only then did she realize that she had dialed the wrong number. The call that was supposed to go to Xu Na ended up reaching Jin Fengchen instead...The mood was awkward enough in the first place. Jiang Sese wanted to send Jin Fengchen home, not wanting to disturb him. But when the aching pain in her stomach made her frown, Jin Fengchen grabbed her waist and hoisted her into his embrace.Caught off guard, Jiang Sese cried, "Jin Fengchen, put me down right now.""Don't move," Jin Fengchen said. He started carrying her downstairs so he could take her to the hospital.Jiang Sese stopped trying to struggle because she was in too much anguish.She sighed. "This is the last time I'll trouble him!"The car ride to the hospital was fi
Unfortunately, the balcony was deserted. The man who had been standing there seemed to have left not too long ago, with the smell of cigarettes still lingering in the air. Jiang Sese stood in a daze. A wry smile appeared on her face, as if she were mocking herself. She felt like she had sobered up."How could Jin Fengchen accept something like this? Even if he could, Su Qingyin would reveal the matter to his parents. His parents don't like me in the first place. Once they find out, they will never agree to let a woman like me stay with Jin Fengchen."Jiang Sese, face the facts! Stop harboring unnecessary hope… It's impossible between the two of us," she thought....Jin Fengchen didn't go home after leaving the hospital, choosing to head to his office instead.He sat on the couch inside the large office in the dark. Smoke swirled up from the cigarette in his hand, filling the room. He looked defeated.This was his first time feeling so lost. He didn't know what he should do. He h
Once they got to the private room, they discovered that Jin Fengchen was also there. Sitting next to him was Su Qingyin."Sister Sese, it's President Jin!" Xu Na whispered into Jiang Sese's ear.Jiang Sese looked away. She didn't expect the world to be so small as to run into these two during a client meeting. Everything that happened early in the morning surfaced in her mind, making her a little frenetic.She forced herself to calm down and entered the room like nothing was wrong.Su Qingyin wasn't expecting to see Jiang Sese at this meeting either. The light in her eyes dimmed. "It's because of this woman that Jin Fengchen abandoned me several times."She was worried, but on second thought, Jiang Sese was now on bad terms with Jin Fengchen. "So what if they meet here?""What a coincidence, Miss Jiang! I don't meet clients with Fengchen very often, so it's quite a surprise to run into you!" Su Qingyin went up to Jiang Sese, greeting her with a smile and pretending like she wasn'
