Later that night, Jin Fengchen returned home, humming a tune. Jiang Sese stuck her head out of the kitchen, teasing him. "You're in a good mood—this is so rare for you. I see that you've made progress."Hearing that, Jin Fengyao straightened his back, then switched to a serious tone. "Sister-in-law, you're making things up. I have no such plans for her.""That's right. Fengyao, you have no feelings for Qingwan at all."Knowing that Jin Fengyao was only being stubborn, Jiang Sese handed him a plate of fruit, then walked away with a smile.Grabbing an apple, Jin Fengyao took a bite and slouched down onto the sofa.Seeing this, Mrs. Jin couldn't help but ask, "What's going on? Do you have a girlfriend now?"Jiang Sese only smiled, but Xiaobao answered the question right away. "It's that pretty Aunt Song! Uncle likes her!""Xiaobao, make up things about me again, and I'll spank you!"Jin Fengyao looked uneasy after Xiaobao exposed his secret. He pretended to raise a fist at Xiaobao
"You're my wife, so what's wrong with me feeling jealous?" Jin Fengchen even squeezed Jiang Sese's waist as he spoke.Hearing how he addressed her, Jiang Sese couldn't help but blush. She feigned a vexed tone when she said, "I'm not your wife. We're not married yet."Jin Fengchen wrapped her in his arms with a mischievous smile on his face."Are you thinking about leaving me? Too bad, you can't. I'll never let you go anywhere.""That depends. Mistreat me and I may turn into a butterfly one day, flying straight out of the wind," said Jiang Sese childishly."I'll never give you that chance, but —"Jin Fengchen paused at that moment, then looked at Jiang Sese with a stern look on his face."I meant it when I said that I don't like you working with other men. I want to hide you away in the house. That way, no one will be able to see how charming you are."Jiang Sese broke into laughter when she heard that. Squeezing Jin Fengchen's cheek, she smiled. "I never thought that the famous
Jiang Sese frowned, then tactfully moved away. She exchanged a look with Lu Zheng without saying anything else.Naturally, Lu Zheng noticed their client's attempt as well. He stepped out to shield Jiang Sese from the man, then exchanged some pleasantries with the latter before leading him into the reserved private room.After the dinner party started, the man picked up a glass of wine, walked over to Jiang Sese, and said with a smile. "So, Miss Jiang is the person in charge of our business plan this time. To wish us having a great time working together, I wonder if Miss Jiang would like to have a drink with me."The man kept breathing on Jiang Sese's face as he spoke. Rising to her feet, Jiang Sese put a chair between them to keep some distance from the man. However, since he was the person in charge of this project, she didn't want to offend him.Before she could say anything, Lu Zheng stood up, then said, "Excuse me, Mr. Wei, but my friend here can't drink. I'll drink it for her.
The car was speeding at over 100 miles per hour, but Jin Fengchen still wasn't pleased. He pushed down on the accelerator harder.Meanwhile, Jiang Sese couldn't be more anxious. After all, she had been the reason that this thing had started, but now, Lu Zheng had to take the fall. That shouldn't have been the case.Her only option now was to hope that Jin Fengchen could get here soon.Maybe her prayer had worked. A familiar figure showed up at that moment, and before she could say anything, he had pulled her into his arms.Smelling Jin Fengchen's familiar scent, Jiang Sese finally felt her mind settle.Jin Fengchen felt his heart melt when he saw how flustered she was. He almost wanted to embed her into his body.Jiang Sese came back to herself first. Pushing Jin Fengchen away, she asked hastily, "Fengchen, how many people have you brought? We're in trouble here."Sensing that something had gone wrong, Jin Fengchen asked in a grim tone, "What's going on? Why do you need more peo
After rushing Lu Zheng into ER where he was given a series of examinations, they were told that he might seem severely injured, but those bodyguards had had reservations when they hit him. This was probably because they didn't want to take responsibility for any severe consequences. As a result, his injuries had mostly been superficial.The doctor addressed Lu Zheng's wounds, then gave him some medicines to take home. After that, they were ready to leave the hospital.Upon leaving, Lu Zheng hesitated, then stammered. "I'm sorry. You must have been frightened."Jiang Sese found his apology confusing. After all, she should be the one thanking him. Without Lu Zheng, Mr. Wei probably would have gotten what he wanted.Jiang Sese smiled gently. "Don't worry about it; you've done nothing wrong. They went too far.""But..."Lu Zheng paused, glanced at Jiang Sese, and continued. "You went there with me, which made you my responsibility. I still feel sorry for what happened."Jiang Sese w
It was very late by the time they got back home.Concerned with Xiaobao, Jiang Sese stopped a maid and asked, "Where's the young master?"The maid replied immediately, "He's already asleep."Probably because of her mother's nature, Jiang Sese was still a little anxious even if the boy was already in bed. She just had to check up on him. Hence, she glanced at Jin Fengchen and was ready to go to Xiaobao's bedroom.However, that glance displeased Jin Fengchen. He stopped Jiang Sese and dragged her back to their own room.He had made sure that he didn't hold her too hard when he pulled Jiang Sese, so that she wouldn't feel uncomfortable in any way.Jiang Sese wasn't happy with the way he handled her either, and sounded displeased when she said, "Fengchen, what are you doing? I need to check up on Xiaobao.""The maid told you already that he's asleep. They're specialized in taking care of kids, and I'm sure they wouldn't lie to us. I'm the one you should keep company." After that, he
An awkward silence filled the car after that. All of a sudden, an idea seemed to strike Jin Fengchen, and he asked, "Fengyao, do you know any restaurant in the city that's both romantic and has good food?"Jin Fengyao didn't think much of it, and said casually, "Romantic? Go to one of those Western-style restaurants for couples and have a candlelight dinner."Jin Fengchen wasn't satisfied with the answer. Frowning, he asked, "Is that all? Do you know of some place that'll look like I put thought into it?"Only then did Jin Fengyao smell something fishy, and he asked immediately, "What plan do you have?"Jin Fengchen's face was unperturbed, but the words out of his mouth were shocking. "I'm going to propose to her."Jin Fengyao was stunned for a moment before he came back to himself, and he almost jumped out of the car. With eyes lit up, he said, "How could you be so calm when making such a big announcement? I'm impressed."Hearing that, Jin Fengchen glanced at him, and said indif
After Jiang Sese got back home, Xiaobao wouldn't let her out of his sight. He kept nagging her, asking her to read him a "Tom and Jerry" story, which made Mrs. Jin a little jealous."So, you've forgotten all about Grandma as soon as Mommy's home. Is that it?"Recognizing his grandmother's tone, the smart boy jumped out of Jiang Sese's arms, kissed Mrs. Jin on the face, then said sweetly, "Of course not. I like Grandma, too. But Daddy says that I have to protect Mommy when he's not around. I remember that."Hearing that, Mrs. Jin squeezed his chubby cheeks, and chided him with a smile. "You're such a smart cookie, aren't you?"Jin Fengchen got back home to find these three bantering in the living room, which put him in a good mood. He couldn't help asking, "You're all so happy. What are you talking about?""Your smart little boy is doing everything he can to make me happy. Why, you're back early today," said Mrs. Jin with a smile, after glancing at Xiaobao.Jin Fengchen sat down n
