Jiang Sese didn't sleep well that night."Mommy, do you not want me anymore?"Big drops of tears were coming out of Xiaobao's eyes while he was looking at her.Seeing that he got a red nose from all the crying, Jiang Sese felt an ache in her heart and she shook her head in denial. "No, that's not true.""Where are you then? Why aren't you home?""I... I..." She didn't know how to explain it to him, so she just said, "I'm sorry, Xiaobao. I'm busy with work. I'll come back home when the work is done.""Really?" Xiaobao opened his eyes wider with tears still circling inside.She nodded with a smile. "Uh-huh. Of course!"The expression on Xiaobao's face suddenly changed. He stared at her with vicious eyes and screamed, "You lied! You lied! You're a liar! Bad liar!"She had never seen Xiaobao this hysterical. She got worried and nervous and reached her hand out toward him. "Xiaobao, Mommy didn't..."Xiaobao dodged her hand and sneered at her, saying, "You're not my mommy. Not my m
In Jin City...The Jin Group..."Brother, I've got the money."Jin Fengyao walked into the president's office with large strides.Jin Fengchen, sitting by the French window, turned around and asked, "Are the police ready?""They are ready for us to meet the kidnappers."Jin Fengyao took the water on the desk and took a swig of it. He then said, "Brother. Do you think this is much too risky?"He asked because it was Jin Fengchen's intention to give the kidnappers what they wanted while having the police ready for them in hiding.The perk of this was that the kidnappers would be caught.But if the kidnappers were to find out, it would put Xiaobao in great danger.Jin Fengchen was worrying about the same thing. But he believed that Xiaobao was smart and brave enough to survive this."Tell them to be extra careful. We can't afford even the slightest error," Jin Fengchen said with his deep voice.Jin Fengyao nodded and asked, "Did the kidnappers call?""Not yet."They were wai
The grass was taller than the average height of a person, which was tall enough for her to hide in.She got closer to the big ficus tree quietly, step by step.Closer and closer.Through gaps in between the grass, she could see that there was a man standing under the ficus tree.He was standing straight and that made him look tall.She felt it familiar.With a lump in her throat, she bit her lips to stop the urge to cry and she fixed her eyes on that person."It's Jin Fengchen."Jin Fengchen felt that he was being watched. He turned around and looked over the grass that had grown taller than a person with his sharp eyes.Jiang Sese squatted clumsily.Jin Fengchen retracted his sharp gaze because he didn't see anything odd."Whew!"Jiang Sese sighed in relief.That was when a husky, awful voice was heard."It takes some guts to be President Jin of the Jin Group. You're brave enough to be here alone."Jiang Sese was shocked by the voice, so she craned her neck to see what
Jin Fengchen and the police officers saw Jiang Sese slumping forward the moment they arrived at the scene.His pupils shrank when he recognized Jiang Sese. He yelled, "Sese!"He ran toward her.When the kidnapper spotted the police officers, he immediately ran away, leaving behind Jiang Sese and the child."Stop right there!" The police officers ran after him."Sese!"Jin Fengchen caught Jiang Sese just in time to stop her and Xiaobao from falling to the ground."Fengchen..."Being shot twice caused Jiang Sese so much pain that her face had become a frightening shade of white, and her forehead was drenched with sweat.She pushed Xiaobao into his embrace with a smile. "Fengchen, I rescued Xiaobao.""You idiot!"Even a cold person like him couldn't help feeling the urge to cry at the sight of Jiang Sese putting up a strong front.Xiaobao sobbed out loud after seeing the blood on her shoulder. "I don't want Mommy to die."Jiang Sese raised her hand to gently wipe his tears. F
More than an hour later, the operating room opened its doors.Jiang Sese was wheeled out.Jin Fengchen and Jin Fengyao immediately stepped forward."Doctor, how's my wife?" Jin Fengchen's voice was filled with impatience"She's safe. It was a close call; the bullet pierced just three inches away from her heart! We have to monitor her for a few days as she recovers. You have to be very careful when tending to her, so don't let her wound come into contact with water."The doctor's words elicited a sigh of relief from Jin Fengchen, but his eyebrows remained knitted. The heartache he felt for Jiang Sese couldn't be hidden.Jiang Sese was sent to her ward. She remained unconscious as there was still anesthesia in her system."Brother, apart from the one who escaped, the rest of the kidnappers have been arrested."After answering a call and hearing what the person had to say, Jin Fengyao put away his phone and reported the situation to his brother."Escaped?" Jin Fengchen frowned.
Lu Zheng headed to the hospital the moment he found about Jiang Sese's injuries, and he ran straight into Jin Fengyao."Wait."Jin Fengyao stopped him."Lu Zheng, correct?" Jin Fengyao smiled faintly at him."What do you mean by this, Second Young Master Jin?" Lu Zheng met his eyes with a blank expression.Jin Fengyao raised an eyebrow and nonchalantly responded with a question of his own. "What do you think?"How could he let a stranger ruin a moment for his brother and sister-in-law when they had reunited after so much difficulty?That would ruin the moment!His intention didn't escape an intelligent person like Lu Zheng."I'm Sese's senior."He spoke one simple sentence to clarify his relationship to Jiang Sese."Senior?" Jin Fengyao curled his lips without commenting. It was true that his sister-in-law considered Lu Zheng her senior, but this man didn't see her as only his junior.He was obliged to deal with any problem or person that could threaten his older brother.
If it wasn't for Xiaobao's kidnapping, she might have never returned to Jin City and reunited with him.She didn't know how to face him.The thought made her smile; perhaps this was fate playing a trick on them.Having learned her lesson, she realized that it would be very hard for her to leave them now.Jin Fengchen had a lot of questions for her but kept his mouth shut in the end.Now that she was back, nothing else felt important."I'll go and get the doctor," he said.Jiang Sese nodded. "Okay."It wasn't until he left that she scrunched her face. "That hurts!"Recalling the dangerous situation still left her in fear.She didn't know if she should be grateful that the kidnapper had bad aim, or if she should rejoice that she narrowly avoided death. The first bullet had grazed her shoulder and, though the wound hurt, it was just a superficial injury.The second bullet had pierced her shoulder. It didn't hurt while she was running away, but now, even moving her body caused e
Su Qingyin's eyes glimmered when she noticed the gauze wrapped around Jiang Sese's arm. Displaying a look of concern, she asked, "Miss Jiang, where did you go? It's been so long since I last saw you."Jiang Sese's gaze cooled when she remembered what Su Qingyin told Xiaobao. "Business trip," she said apathetically."Oh, a business trip."Su Qingyin acted as if she had just realized something and beamed at her. "I thought you had an argument with Fengchen and broke up with him."Jiang Sese's eyebrows twitched, but she soon laughed out loud. "Miss Su, you must be disappointed."Su Qingyin was stunned. By the time she had processed Jiang Sese's words, she could no longer maintain the smile on her face.She had wanted to embarrass Jiang Sese, yet this surprisingly sharp-tongued woman had fought back instead."Of course not. Well, it's just that Auntie Qin has been matchmaking Fengchen and Li Yuanyuan while you were away. That was why I thought you had broken up with him."She was s
