Hearing that, Jiang Sese hesitated. "Double Seventh Festival? What plans do we have?" She herself didn't care much about such festivals and didn't think someone as busy as Jin Fengchen would give it much thought either."Sister Sese, aren't you going to buy Mr. Jin a gift? Or, you can give yourself as the gift. I bet that'd make Mr. Jin very happy.""Are you listening to yourself?" Jiang Sese threw a dirty look at Xu Na. "How inappropriate."Although, Jiang Sese was wavering. She had planned to buy a gift for Jin Fengchen, but because of the scene that Han Jing had caused, she didn't get the chance to buy anything.After some thought, Jiang Sese decided to buy Jin Fengchen a gift after work. Xu Na went with her.With some careful selection, Jiang Sese bought a pair of cufflinks instead of a tie. The price wasn't too high and within the range that Jiang Sese could accept. She found the cufflinks exquisite and liked them a lot, but wondered if Jin Fengchen would like them as well...
The car stopped outside a Western-style restaurant, which was set up in a quiet location with an elegant layout. Because of the Double Seventh Festival, many of the tables were taken by couples. Seeing this, Jiang Sese couldn't help feeling that the two of them were just another ordinary couple like the others and that there was no significant difference between them.Holding Jiang Sese's hand, Jin Fengchen led her to the table he reserved, and then beckoned a waiter over to take their order.Night had set in by now. The restaurant was on the top floor of the building, so they could savor the nightscape through the glass walls. The view was stunning....In contrast to the harmonious couple, Su Qingyin could only drown herself in alcohol at a bar.It was the Double Seventh Festival today, but the man she loved was with someone else. What was more, a man like Jin Fengchen had bought flowers for Jiang Sese.Closing her eyes, Su Qingyin felt like a mess, but she had no idea what to
"Miss Jiang, nice to meet you. I'm Li An, the one who used your surrogate service six years ago," said Li An in an unperturbed voice. His face showed no discernible emotions.However, Jiang Sese blanched when she heard those words. She had been holding her phone in one hand, but it dropped to the ground with a cracking sound. She stared at Li An in disbelief.The man who she worked for six years ago as a surrogate mother had found her. "Why is he here now? What does he want?"Somehow, Jiang Sese grew even more uneasy. Her heart was thumping violently and she couldn't calm herself down no matter what.Li An picked Jiang Sese's phone up for her, and then said apologetically, "Miss Jiang, I'm so sorry for intruding into your life like this. Do you have a minute? Let's find a place to sit down. I need to talk to you."Jiang Sese came back to herself and agreed.The two of them then found a place to sit down, and by then, Jiang Sese was able to think straight again. She began to wonde
After the phone call, Jin Fengyao looked conflicted. He said in the end, "Brother, according to Su Shan, my sister-in-law has no active projects and has been really idle these days. She was obviously lying to you!"Hearing that, Jin Fengchen couldn't help frowning. It was obvious that Jiang Sese had spare time, but she had turned him down with an excuse that she was busy. She was definitely avoiding him. He had guessed right."Brother, do we need to look into it? My sister-in-law has changed so suddenly. Has something happened?""All right." Jin Fengchen nodded and didn't turn Jin Fengyao down. Without the investigation, he might never hear the reason from Jiang Sese herself.Soon after, Jin Fengyao left the office with his mission. He then had someone look into Jiang Sese's recent whereabouts.Jin Fengchen worked well past 11 o'clock. He couldn't help feeling agitated, and he wondered what made Jiang Sese avoid him again.Lighting a cigarette, Jin Fengchen was lost in thought, b
Jin Fengyao handed Jin Fengchen a picture, which showed Jiang Sese meeting Li An at a restaurant, but Li Xuan wasn't in it.Seeing this, Jin Fengchen asked, "What's the relationship between this Li An and Jiang Sese?""I haven't found that out yet, but my sister-in-law has been seeing that man a lot recently."Jin Fengchen frowned instantly and became lost in thought.Jin Fengchen wondered if this Li An had something to do with the sudden change in Jiang Sese's attitude. Naturally, he wouldn't believe that Jiang Sese would fall in love with someone else, but why was she behaving like this? And who was this Li An? What was his relationship with Jiang Sese?Jin Fengchen had always been very perceptive, but this time, he couldn't figure Jiang Sese out."Brother, what should we do now? Shall I keep looking into this Li An?""Go ahead!" Jin Fengchen nodded. He had to, because Jiang Sese wouldn't tell him anything and he couldn't just let the two of them go on like that.With Jin Fen
Over on the other end, Jiang Sese was infuriated. She couldn't believe that Li An could be so shameless. What happened between them was a done deal, but now...She had received a small fortune for the baby, which indicated that the client was not ordinary. This Li An, on the other hand, seemed "ordinary" from head to toe. Jiang Sese didn't think that this man fit the characteristics of the family who had hired her as a surrogate mother, but she couldn't overlook the evidence..."Aren't you going to give me an explanation?" said Jin Fengchen, pursing his lips.He wondered why a man would show up out of the blue and claim to be Jiang Sese's husband.Only then did Jiang Sese come back to her senses. Glancing at Jin Fengchen, she said, "There's nothing to explain. Jin Fengchen, it's never going to work out between us. And I have been lying to myself because I have been swept away by the good time you've shown me. None of it is meant for me, and we should stop seeing each other! Please
The following day, the people Jin Fengyao had hired found out everything about this Li An.In the office, Jin Fengyao was reporting to his brother."Brother, that Li An is just an ordinary guy. He works in a small firm and has a child of five. He and his wife divorced a few years ago. My sister-in-law didn't know him before, but for some unknown reason, his recent information has been cleaned off his record."Without Jin Fengyao's connections, it would have taken even longer to find out who this Li An was."More importantly, Brother, you know what? I ran into my sister-in-law at a restaurant last night and she was meeting that man. Li Xuan, that man's kid, called her 'Mommy'."The look on Jin Fengchen's face changed when he heard that."Brother, that's so strange, right? What should we do now?""Bring Li An here," said Jin Fengchen directly.Since Jiang Sese wouldn't tell him everything, he had to work on Li An.Jin Fengyao thought the same, which was why he had Li An followed
That night, the two of them met at a late-night bar, which wasn't very much visited.Sitting at the bar, Su Qingyin looked disgruntled. She said angrily, "That Li An is useless. He can't even do that one little thing right! That's just great! Before he could expose her, he was exposed himself!"After that, she asked Mu Jingshen in a somewhat accusatory manner, "Didn't you tell me that nothing could go wrong?"Sipping his drink, Mu Jingshen said unhurriedly, "I never promised you that. After all, this Li An showed up so out of the blue, and there were going to be a lot of loopholes. Even if he could find some excuse, he wouldn't be able to keep making it. The Su and Lan families have wiped the evidence too clean, and I could never find out who Jiang Sese had the baby for. We only hired Li An as an imposter because we didn't have any other choice."Hearing that, Su Qingyin was so mad that she almost burst into laughter. "We didn't have any other choice? Why didn't you say so before?
