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
After finishing her shower, Jiang Sese came out in a nightgown. However, Xiaobao commented sarcastically like a little grown-up. "Aunt Sese, your nightgown is way too conservative.""Xiaobao, what are you talking about?" Seeing that Jin Fengchen wouldn't peel his eyes off her, Jiang Sese felt the temperature of her cheeks rising.She sat down next to Xiaobao. Since it was getting late and Xiaobao still had to go to school the following day, she asked, "When are you going back?"Xiaobao wrapped his arms around her legs right away and cried out, "Aunt Sese, I want to sleep in your bed!"She could only turn to Jin Fengchen with a look of resignation. To her surprise, he chimed in. "I'm staying here tonight, too."Still worried that Mrs. Jin would be more displeased if he stayed, she said once more, "I think you should go back. Otherwise..."Jin Fengchen understood her concern before she could finish. Taking her hand, he comforted her. "Don't worry about it. Have some faith in me. I'
Jiang Nuannuan didn't care that they were at a hospital. She tried to start a row with Lan Sichen out in the open.Lan Sichen tried his best to control himself and did all he could to calm her down. "You should understand your position now. Sese is now backed by Jin Fengchen. If we keep offending her, the Jin Group can bankrupt both of our family businesses just by snapping a finger!"Seeing that Jiang Nuannuan wouldn't be persuaded, he heaved another sigh. "She's not what she used to be, and we can't afford to offend her anymore."Jiang Nuannuan snorted. She believed that since she had set Jiang Sese up and kicked her out of her family before, she could do the same thing again.The look in her eyes grew malicious and she said between gritted teeth, "I'm going to reveal her past to everyone. Ruining her reputation isn't enough. I'll take everything away from her."Nothing Lan Sichen said could persuade her, so he had to threaten her in a cold voice. "Listen to me. Don't put yourse
After leaving the mall, Xiaobao drifted off on their way back to her apartment and gradually fell asleep in her arms."Xiaobao had a great time today," said Jin Fengchen in a low voice.Jiang Sese nodded with a smile. "Yes, he did. Mr. Jin, if you don't bury yourself in your work and take Xiaobao out more, he'll be this happy every day."The car arrived at her place as they spoke.Jing Sese couldn't bring herself to wake Xiaobao up, so she simply picked him up and carried him out of the car.Several times, Jin Fengchen tried to take the child from her, but she refused each time, fearing that changing hands would wake Xiaobao up.Jin Fengchen received an unexpected phone call from Gu Nian when they reached the front door, saying that something had come up at the office."Go back to your work. I'll look after Xiaobao." Xiaobao opened his sleepy eyes after Jiang Sese spoke."Aunt Sese, are we home yet?"Jiang Sese whispered, "Yes. Xiaobao, are you tired?"Hearing that, Xiaobao j
