It was a long, gentle kiss. Jin Fengchen only reluctantly let go of Jiang Sese when she was having trouble getting air into her lungs.The night had already set in. Seeing that Jiang Sese looked tired, he led her into the room.Jiang Sese went in to find Xiaobao sleeping soundly in bed. Jin Fengchen didn't follow her in, which was very rare for him. Instead, he considerately closed the door for them.The following morning, Xiaobao stood by the bed and tentatively shook Jiang Sese's arm.Opening her still sleepy eyes, Jiang Sese beamed at the boy. "Morning, sweetheart."Xiaobao pulled her up. After she got dressed, she saw the breakfast on the table and raised her eyebrows involuntarily.It consisted of plain toast, milk, bacon, and fried eggs."Did you... make all these?" Jiang Sese asked in surprise.Jin Fengchen nodded. "Yes, I did. Try it."Hearing those words, Jiang Sese was a little touched.She was already impressed when he made noodles for her last time, which he rarel
The three other people reacted to the word "goddaughter" with different facial expressions.When Jiang Sese came back to her senses, she turned to look at Jin Fengchen involuntarily and saw that his face had turned livid.Because of his respect for his mother, Jin Fengchen didn't want to humiliate her in public. He only sat there with a stern look on his face.Out of the four of them, Li Yuanyuan was the only one letting out a sigh of relief."Good, she's only a goddaughter. I'd have a lot to handle if a pretty girl like Jiang Sese was involved with Jin Fengchen."All four of them fell silent, each occupied with their own thoughts. No one talked for a very long time.It just so happened that Qin Mulan asked eagerly again, "Miss Jiang, forgive me for asking, but would you like to be my goddaughter?"Jiang Sese felt her eyes go dry. She pursed her lips and gradually blanched.Qin Mulan's rambling kept flowing into Jiang Sese's ears. "I only have two sons and have always wanted a
A kiss at night is especially mesmerizing.Jiang Sese snapped out of her trance-like state when she realized that Jin Fengchen was on top of her.Pressing her hands on his hard chest, she tried to push him away.Jin Fengchen sat up, still lost in the passionate moment. His gaze toward her was affectionate, forbearing, and full of restraint. "Go to bed."He had already pushed the door open and left the room after he said those words. She heard the door to the next room open and then close.In the Su Family house...Su Qingyin was going to bed when she received a message from her friend. She flared up and began smashing everything in her room.There was a ferocious look in her eyes. "What's wrong with Qin Mulan? She was all 'you're the perfect daughter-in-law I want' before, but she has changed her tune just like that."Had it not been for her friend, she wouldn't have known that Mrs. Jin had brought another woman on a blind date with Jin Fengchen.After hearing the noise come f
Looking at Jin Fengchen from behind, who had coldly turned away from her, Su Qingyin suddenly had a malicious look in her eyes.She didn't have to rack her brains to know that Jiang Sese had something to do with this. Su Qingyin swore that she wouldn't let that woman off so easily.Since Jin Fengchen wanted to chase her away, Su Qingyin knew better than to pester him and stay here.She couldn't wait for even 15 minutes.With a gloomy face, Su Qingyin indignantly yanked the door open and left the office.She packed up her things as quickly as she could, and then promptly left the Jin Group without saying goodbye to anyone.After getting back home, she locked herself in her room and wouldn't open the door no matter who was knocking at it.Mrs. Su was concerned, worrying that Su Qingyin might starve herself if she went on not eating or drinking like this.Mr. Su seemed to have a faint idea of what had happened and guessed that his daughter had probably fallen out with Jin Fengchen
She texted Jin Fengchen only less than 20 minutes ago, telling him to pick her up later than usual, for she had to work on her business plan.Now that she needed to go meet Lu Zheng on short notice, she had to send Jin Fengchen another text message.Seeing an incoming message from Jiang Sese, Jin Fengchen thought that she was going to tell him that she had changed her mind and would like him to pick her up earlier.However, the message this time said that she was going to be back even later and that he didn't need to pick her up at all.Over on the other end...Jiang Sese walked out of her office building to find Lu Zheng waiting downstairs, which surprised her. "Senior Lu, I didn't know that you were coming to pick me up."Lu Zheng smiled mildly, and then opened the door to the passenger seat for her. "I'm meeting my competitor, so of course, I have to show some sincerity."After they arrived at the restaurant, Lu Zheng pulled out the chair for her like a gentleman and only sat
Looking up, Jiang Sese saw the strange look in his eyes and was bewildered.The look in Jin Fengchen's eyes became more brooding when he saw how confused and insensitive she was.Under his unblinking gaze, Jiang Sese couldn't help feeling guilty.She didn't do anything, aside from having a casual dinner with Lu Zheng.Why did she feel as though she had done something she wasn't proud of?Jiang Sese didn't want to give Jin Fengchen the wrong idea, so she explained right away. "I promised that I would buy Senior Lu dinner last time, but had to cancel because I had a stomachache. I didn't want to owe him anything, so I..."Before she could finish, she looked up and saw his teasing, flickering eyes. Only then did she realize that she had been tricked.Vexed and embarrassed, she ordered him to leave. "It's late. Shouldn't you be getting back?""Are you kicking me out now?" Jin Fengchen raised an eyebrow, finding her vexing face rather attractive.Jiang Sese mumbled, "I'm not kickin
Jiang Sese glanced at him and smiled. "A suitable amount of pressure can push me forward."Lu Zheng was surprised, and then saw the light. He didn't forget to make a comment. "No wonder they say that the harder one works, the faster they'll make progress."She was about to reply when her eyes met Su Qingyin's.Jiang Sese noticed that Su Qingyin's eyes were flickering with a complacent look in them.Probably because of something Su Qingyin said, Kevin began to measure Jiang Sese with his eyes.Since Kevin had noticed them, Lu Zheng simply led Jiang Sese toward the man."Kevin, it's been a while." Lu Zheng reached out first, enthusiastically shaking Kevin's hand.Kevin was glad to see Lu Zheng as well. Since they hadn't seen each other in a while, they spent a little time exchanging pleasantries."And this is..." Kevin took the initiative and turned to Jiang Sese.Jiang Sese nodded at him, and then introduced herself. "Hello, Kevin. I'm Jiang Sese from the Jinse Creative Agency.
Lu Zheng was chatting happily with Jiang Sese when someone else greeted him. He said apologetically, "Sese, I just spotted a friend over there. Excuse me for a moment."Jiang Sese nodded. After Lu Zheng left, she fetched a glass of wine, found a corner to sit down in, and studied the banquet carefully.As much as she wanted that project, since Kevin had announced the terms of the competition, she decided not to bother him again. Instead, she only tried to figure out what she could do to make her business plan stand out.Lu Zheng only went back to her shortly before the banquet ended. The two of them then went to say goodbye to Kevin together."Sese, let me give you a ride back home."After leaving the hotel, Lu Zheng got Jiang Sese into his car before she could say no, as if fearing that she might run away.Jiang Sese chuckled. "Thank you for the ride then, Senior Lu."However, what she didn't know was that a pair of eyes had been following her as she walked away.Those eyes be
