Jiang Sese was upset and hurt. She didn't want to keep wallowing in these murky waters or face the past.Jin Fengchen stood still, listening to her every word. Instead of leaving, he stepped forward and pulled her into a hug."Who told you that we don't belong in the same world? Jiang Sese, I don't mind your past, not in the slightest. I don't know what you were like in the past. All I know is the current you."No matter what happens, I'll always stay by your side. Let's face everything together, all right?"The words that drifted into her ears finally caused Jiang Sese's tears to flow. They completely crushed the walls she had built around her heart...She had braved everything all by herself all these years. She thought she would go on living on her own just like this.But, Jin Fengchen entered her life.This man had offered her a hand time and again, surprising her every time.After everything that had happened today, she could no longer bear it. Hanging on to his embrace, s
Shen Shulan felt bad for her daughter, so she stepped up to defend her."You can't blame Nuannuan for that! It wouldn't have turned out like this if Jiang Sese hadn't done something so shameful. Besides, anyone who's truly interested would have been able to investigate it. Our agreement back then was done verbally. She can't do anything to us even if we reveal her past.""Enough. I won't let you off if you bring this up again."Jiang Zhen stormed out furiously, leaving Shen Shulan looking worried."Oh, all right. Nuannuan, listen to your dad. Don't mention this to outsiders anymore. Take good care of yourself. I'll try to persuade your dad."With that said, she chased after her husband.After the two of them were gone, Lan Sichen went to his study.Jiang Nuannuan composed herself on the couch before entering the study as well. She tugged on Lan Sichen's hand and said softly, "Brother Sichen, are you still angry?"Lan Sichen had been giving her the cold shoulder ever since they
Grandpa Qin was in a good mood, so he asked, "Young lady, you have quite strong feelings for my grandson, don't you?"His sudden question caught Jiang Sese off guard. Her cheeks turned red. For a moment, she didn't know what to say.The old man laughed and continued, "Since you're already together, when do you plan on holding your wedding and giving Xiaobao a steady home?"It wasn't easy for his grandson and great-grandson to meet someone they liked. He was also satisfied with Jiang Sese, which was why he was giving them a little push. His future granddaughter-in-law was so outstanding after all! He was sure that many men were after her. He had to get them together soon and remove all worries.Xiaobao was thinking the same thing. He blinked at Jin Fengchen, and then at Jiang Sese. "If Daddy marries Auntie Sese, wouldn't that mean I'd get to see her every day? That'd be great!" His words nearly made Jiang Sese spit out the rice she had just put in her mouth. She wanted to tell the
As always, President Jin dropped Xiaobao off at school after breakfast and then sent Jiang Sese to her workplace.He stopped the car outside the office building's doors and got out. He looked reluctant to part with her. Pursing his lips, he said, "I'll pick you up after work."Jiang Sese nodded, accepting the offer. "You should get to work. Off you go!"She ran inside the office building, abashed. She had known this man for some time now, but every time she faced him, her heart would beat wildly. It was as if they were in the honeymoon phase of their relationship.Jin Fengchen watched her from behind with a smirk. "She's finally beginning to try to accept me." After entering the office building, Jiang Sese ran into Xu Na at the escalator.Xu Na went up to her, looking ready to gossip. "Sister Sese, what's wrong? Why do you look so bashful?""What are you saying? I don't!" Jiang Sese glared at her.Xu Na got closer to her, her tone carrying a hint of suggestiveness, as she cont
Today, Jin Fengyao was left with the duty of babysitting Xiaobao. Jin Fengchen picked Jiang Sese up after work and the two of them spent the night outdoors, doing everything from having dinner, shopping, and watching a movie. They were just like an ordinary couple.What they did couldn't be any more common, but it still brought Jiang Sese a lot of joy. She had never experienced such happiness in her life.They were planning to go home at midnight, but Jiang Sese got hungry. So, she suggested that they go home after grabbing some food.They stopped at a barbeque stall by the road. Jiang Sese was overjoyed that the great President Jin would eat skewered meat with her."Jin Fengchen, have you eaten these before?"Jin Fengchen shook his head.Jiang Sese became even happier to hear that it was his first time. "Then why are you willing to try them?"He drank some water and said slowly, "Because I'm with you."His reply made her heartbeat quicken. Why was this man always trying to sed
Jin Fengchen's worried expression remained unchanged throughout the car ride. He never saw this coming."What if something happens to Jiang Sese? What should I do if she doesn't wake up…?" He was full of regrets. "If I hadn't brought her here, this wouldn't have happened." He sped to the hospital, running numerous red lights. When he got there, he carried Jiang Sese out of the car.He brought her into the ER and waited at the door.The attending doctor came out after examining Jiang Sese and explained, "Mr. Jin, don't worry. Miss Jiang has a mild concussion and some external injuries on her skin, but she's fine. We have already moved her into the ward. She'll wake up tomorrow."After hearing his words, Jin Fengchen leaned against the wall with his eyes closed. He let out a sigh. His high-strung heart finally settled back in place."Luckily, she's fine."Thank you, Jiang Sese. Thank you for staying alive." ...Nearly an hour later, the police officers and the driver involved
Su Qingyin woke up in fear and came face-to-face with her mother. She leaned into Mrs. Su's embrace and started weeping."Mom…"Mrs. Su, who had never seen her daughter like this, was scared out of her wits. The commotion even alarmed Mr. Su upstairs.After some sobbing, Su Qingyin told her parents everything."Dad, Mom… I didn't do it on purpose, I swear."Mrs. Su frowned and immediately comforted her. "Don't be so quick to cry. Maybe Jiang Sese is okay! Let's go to the hospital and check on her first.""But, Mom, if anything happens to her, will Fengchen…""Will Fengchen make me pay? Will Fengchen not want to see me for the rest of his life?" These thoughts made Su Qingyin's tears flow again."What's the point of crying? Enough. Go and get dressed. You have to face this sooner or later." Mr. Su scolded her.He got up and gave Mr. and Mrs. Jin a call. It was clear that Jin Fengchen adored Jiang Sese. If anything happened to that woman, Jin Fengchen might very well make Su Qin
The car stopped outside the villa. Jiang Sese said at once, "Weren't you taking me home? Why are we at your home?"Before Jin Fengchen could answer, Xiaobao replied, "Aunt Sese, isn't Daddy's home yours too?""Xiaobao is right," Jin Fengchen said in agreement.Jiang Sese's face instantly turned red. "Doesn't that imply that we're a family?"Wait, no, what the heck!" She coughed once and said, "No, wait, you should take me home!"It didn't feel right to stay at Jin Fengchen's place. They might have made huge progress in their relationship recently, but still..."Nope. I'm partially to blame for your injuries. You haven't even recovered yet. Xiaobao and I won't feel at ease leaving you alone," Jin Fengchen said, refuting her words."That's right! Just stay here, Aunt Sese! That way, we can take good care of you! Just stay here for a bit. You can leave once you recover.""But…""No more buts. Even if you didn't come here, Xiaobao and I would still stay with you at your place."
