After making sure that she didn't mishear him, Jiang Sese was instantly swept into a state of chaos. She shook her head so hard that she made herself dizzy. "Um, it's all right," she said. "I can go on my own. How can I let you go grocery shopping with me?"Besides, he was the President of the Jin Group! The dream man of countless girls! The social elite with a net worth of more than 100 billion! The giant among men! What if someone found out about this?Unfortunately, the President of the Jin Group didn't pay this much attention. With a matter-of-fact expression, he replied, "Why can't you?"Did he still have to ask?Someone with such an aggressive air would stand out terribly at the market.She would be surprised if people didn't gather around him and watch him like a rare animal if he went!Even so, she didn't dare to reveal her thoughts. She laughed dryly and said, "Because you're a guest, of course! I can't trouble you for something like this."The three of them had reached her do
Jin Fengchen was stunned, but he looked closely at the faces of Xiaobao and then Jiang Sese nevertheless.Jiang Sese found it amusing how seriously he was taking a child's words.How could they look alike when she and Xiaobao weren't related?Jin Fengchen was planning to give a perfunctory reply, but upon closer observation, he found that Xiaobao's and Jiang Sese's facial features were surprisingly similar.Their facial features were similarly graceful and refined. When their eyes looked around, he would even say that their resemblance went up to 70% or 80%..."You two do look alike," Jin Fengchen said in surprise.He took an even closer look at their faces.The more he looked at them, the more similar he found them!Jiang Sese was immediately skeptical after seeing how earnest he was being. She also turned to stare at Xiaobao.However, the more she looked at Xiaobao, the more she thought he resembled a miniature Jin Fengchen.Like his father, Xiaobao had perfectly sculpted facial feat
When Jiang Nuannuan noticed his odd behavior, she couldn't help asking in confusion, "What's wrong, Brother Sichen?"Lan Sichen stared at the person in front of him with a complex expression. "It's… Jiang Sese," he replied."What?"His words caught the rest by surprise and they all turned to look. Sure enough, they saw a slender and elegant figure standing there.She had changed drastically in the five years that they hadn't seen her.Her features had become much more refined and she was also taller. No longer a fledgling beauty of the years past, she emanated the serenity and elegance of an orchid in an empty valley. It was the kind of standoffish temperament that kept people at an arm's length.The conflict that Lan Sichen's parents felt was evident in their eyes.Back then, this was the daughter-in-law of their choice. They had even watched her grow up. Unfortunately, she ended up doing something so humiliating later on.Jiang Zhen, on the other hand, didn't show much of a reaction
"Pa—"The sharp, clear sound rang throughout the corridor.The other patrons and waiters watched this scene unfold, dumbstruck.Jiang Nuannuan's first reaction was to rush to Lan Sichen's side. "Brother Sichen, how are you?"Qin Shuang had also run over to her son. When she saw his inflamed cheeks, her face became contorted from anger. "Jiang Sese, how dare you hit my son! I'm going to kill you!"She threw herself at Jiang Sese, looking determined to rip the latter to shreds.Jiang Sese couldn't dodge her in time. Just as she was about to get injured, a sturdy and powerful arm reached out from behind her and firmly blocked Qin Shuang's hand."What's going on?"Jiang Sese could hear the faint but powerful anger in the ice-cold voice behind her.Then, a familiar scent enveloped her.The scent exclusive to Jin Fengchen was a faint, cold fragrance.What she felt next was a wide chest pressing against her back. The warmth from his skin reached her through their thin clothing.Instantly, a b
"Then why did she run away?" Xiaobao sobbed on his father's shoulder.Jin Fengchen patted him on the back. "She was bullied by bad guys. It's my fault for not protecting her. I'll call your uncle here, so go home with him first. I promise you that I will bring Auntie Sese back for you. Is that okay?"Xiaobao raised his head to look at him. "I want to come with you. I want to see Auntie Sese.""Not now. Be obedient. If you still want to see her, be a good boy and go home. Otherwise, you might not be able to see her again."Xiaobao curled his lips. He was about to cry again.Jin Fengchen looked at him. "Hmm?"Xiaobao scrunched his nose. "I'll be on my best behavior."Pleased with his son's answer, Jin Fengchen took out his phone to give Jin Fengyao a call and ask him to come over in the shortest time possible.Jin Fengyao was hanging out with his group of friends at the club, enjoying fine wine and the delightful company of beautiful women, when he got the call. He was just about to comp
Surely not!Then what was he trying to do?Why was he leaning in for no reason? Their faces were almost pressed together...Their faces were now just about five centimeters apart.Jiang Sese could sense a hot breath brushing past her cheek. It was like a feather sweeping her skin, making her feel numb all over. It also felt like a burst of warmth crossing her… When she breathed in, all she could smell was the scent exclusive to him.She couldn't help getting a fright. Hastily, she reached out and pressed a hand against his chest. She also subconsciously took two steps in retreat.The next thing she knew, a strong and sturdy arm wrapped around her waist and firmly pulled her in."Don't move," he said in her ear, giving her a warning that she couldn't defy.Jiang Sese was so alarmed that her entire body went stiff. She dared not to move. All she could do was let him embrace her in such a suggestive way.At first, Jin Fengchen was just trying to check out her inflamed face.But when she w
Shen Mubai, who was seated on the couch, was beginning to get dizzy from watching the silhouette pacing up and down. He couldn't help saying, "Hey, Second Young Master, can't you stop for a bit?"Jin Fengyao retorted, "No! I'm worried sick! You're Xiaobao's psychologist, how can you just sit there? What if something happens to Xiaobao?"Shen Mubai was as helpless as he was. "You saw it yourself. I tried talking to him, but there's no use.""You're useless!" Jin Fengyao was angry that Shen Mubai couldn't meet his expectations. He turned to the housekeeper next to him and asked, "You didn't inform Mom and Dad about this, did you?"The housekeeper replied respectfully, "Not yet.""Good." Jin Fengyao breathed a sigh of relief, feeling melancholic.Xiaobao threw a tantrum while in his care. If his parents found out, they would probably kill him.Just the thought of it terrified him!Right then, the familiar sound of a roaring engine resounded outside the door. The housekeeper was overjoyed.
When Jiang Sese was done, she squatted down in front of Xiaobao and reached out to caress his face."Sweetie, how are you feeling? Do you still recognize me? I'm Auntie Sese."Xiaobao didn't reply, but his eyelashes trembled twice. There was finally some response from him.Tampering down her anxiety, Jiang Sese pulled him onto her lap and said, "What's wrong? Can you tell me?"Xiaobao looked at her, wide-eyed. Suddenly, the rims of his eyes turned red.She panicked. "Why are you crying? Are you upset because I left you at the restaurant and ran away? Let me apologize to you, all right?"Xiaobao curled his lips and buried his head into her embrace, suddenly in tears.Alarmed, Jiang Sese clumsily hugged him and coaxed him in a soft voice. "Don't cry. I'm sorry, so sorry."Jin Fengchen watched them silently. He didn't try to stop them, but his gaze at Xiaobao carried a hint of a pensive look.He understood his son well.He would have his occasional bout of willfulness, but he would never
