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'
Jin Fengchen was still smiling when he said flatly, "You're joking. You can hold your liquor well, so keep going! You would be disrespecting me if you don't drink until you vomit."He might have been smiling but anyone could hear the gloom and doom in his voice. Everyone in the room shot President Liu looks of pity but said nothing out of fear.President Jiu had never felt worse in his life. Jin Fengchen's words sounded so vaguely familiar that it didn't take him long to remember that he seemed to have said the same to Jiang Sese. "Is Jin Fengchen forcing me to drink because of her?"This filled him with instant regret. "Why did I tease Jiang Sese out of nowhere?"Meanwhile, Jiang Sese was still staying put in the washroom. It wasn't just because of President Liu that she had slipped out of the room. The bigger reason was Jin Fengchen.Her heart would go haywire every time she saw this man. She tried her best to comfort herself. "Jiang Sese, you're here to work. Stop overthinking.
Jin Fengchen found Jin Fengyao playing a video game with Xiaobao when he got home. Upon seeing his brother, Jin Fengyao greeted him at once."Brother, you're back!"Jin Fengchen ignored him. He took off his coat and tossed it aside. The video game happened to come to an end then, allowing Jin Fengyao to look up from the screen. Only then did he realize that his brother looked pissed off.Xiaobao had also noticed his father's bad mood. The two of them exchanged looks. In the end, it was Jin Fengyao who opened his mouth to ask, "Brother, what's wrong? Did the discussion go badly?""Which client was brazen enough to upset my brother?"Jin Fengyao was still confused when he heard his brother question. "Were you the one who told Su Shan to give Jiang Sese such a heavy workload?"Jin Fengchen was pretty skeptical in the first place. "Why would Jiang Sese get so busy out of the blue that she fell ill?" He finally had his answer now. Sure enough, his brother nodded."Yeah! That way, Sis
