With a trace of amusement in her eyes, Jiang Nuannuan said slowly, "It's not that big of a deal, but a few years ago, my sister gave bir…"Even though Jiang Nuannuan didn't finish her sentence, Jiang Sese knew what the rest of her words would entail.Her heart sank. She could feel the nerves in her brain snapping.She clenched her fists tightly.Why?She could take all their humiliation in the past, but why, after all this while, wouldn't they let her be? Why...Any second now, Jiang Nuannuan would continue the rest of her words. Her pupils shrank and the next thing she knew, she was already rushing up to Jiang Nuannuan and slapping her in the face.Her face was dark and her voice ice-cold as she asked, "Aren't you done yet?"Just a second ago, Jiang Nuannuan was happily looking forward to seeing Jin Fengchen dump Jiang Sese. The sudden slap completely stupefied her.She clutched her cheek and looked at Jiang Sese. This was the second time this woman had slapped her since they reunited
Xiaobao was so upset that his tender voice was choked with emotion.An expressionless Jin Fengchen pursed his lips in silence."Auntie Sese even called me this afternoon. She said that she would sleep with me tonight. Did you make her so angry that she ran away? Go and admit your mistake now. Go and bring her home."Xiaobao clenched tightly onto Jin Fengchen's trouser legs.In an increasingly unhappy voice, Jin Fengchen said, "Be obedient. Don't look for Auntie Sese anymore."Not only was Auntie Sese gone, but his father was even scolding him. Xiaobao became even more upset. He ran back into his room in a fit of anger.Jin Fengchen kneaded the space between his eyebrows. Ignoring his son, he returned to his room and lit up a cigarette. All he could think about Jiang Sese's words earlier.His gaze was deep and profound.What exactly had happened in her past?He didn't want to investigate it, for he knew it was a taboo for her. He had been so confident and sure of himself before, but he
"But why?"Jin Fengyao was bewildered. They were fine just moments ago, so how did they end up agreeing not to meet each other again?Had his brother's charm regressed that badly?To the point that his sister-in-law wanted to sever ties with him? The problem seemed serious! It was no wonder that his brother acted like he had eaten a bomb the entire day.Jin Fengchen was quiet for a few beats before extinguishing the cigarette in his hand. He paused before saying, "Maybe it has something to do with her past.""Past?" Jin Fengyao's brows furrowed. "What kind of past?"Jin Fengchen gave him a brief rundown of what had happened last night.Jin Fengyao rose to his feet and said at once, "Brother, don't worry. Leave this to me. I will go and investigate Sister-in-law's past right away."His brother stopped him from leaving."No. Without my permission, you're not allowed to investigate her."Jin Fengyao's heart jumped. Truth be told, the investigation was already done way before. He
"Mm-hmm," Jin Fengchen replied. "Take Xiaobao home after dinner.""Yes, President."When the call ended, Jin Fengyao asked rather pensively, "Tsk, tsk. Brother, you sure are ruthless. You're even exploiting your son."His brother had been idle the past few years, leading him to believe that his brother was going to leave his relationship just like that… It appeared that he had been worrying in vain.Jin Fengchen didn't reply. There was no way he would allow Jiang Sese to sever her ties with him…"Brother, look at how important Xiaobao is to Sister-in-law! But you… you have to work harder!" said the Second Young Master of the Jin family with foolish courage.Jin Fengchen looked coldly at his brother and opened his thin lips to say, "Do you not want your three-month holiday anymore?"Alarmed, Jin Fengyao straightened his back and waved his hand."No, no, not at all. I'm just joking. You're the most important person in Sister-in-law's heart.""Get out.""Alright, alright. I won'
Jiang Zhen's mention of her mother riled up Jiang Sese. She stared hard at him. "What did you do to my mom?"She was beginning to panic. Her mother was her only family in this world.Jiang Zhen smiled at her reaction and his tone became vaguely threatening."She's fine now, but if you won't listen, I can't promise that she will continue to be fine."He then left, so sure that he could now control her.She was about to become hysterical.Putting aside other thoughts, she slammed the door shut and made a beeline for the hospital.Her emotions were a mess as she sat in the cab."Sir, can you please go faster? I'm in a rush."The cab driver said helplessly, "Young lady, I'm already speeding! Safety comes first!"A worried-looking Jiang Sese clutched her clothes. Uneasiness, terror, all kinds of emotions filled her heart.After a moment, she took out her phone and called Qin Yang. The man's gentle voice soon drifted into her ears."Hey, Sese. What's up?""Uncle Qin, is my mom a
Jiang Sese's tears fell uncontrollably at the thought of her mother.What should she do now?Ask Jin Fengchen for help?But, she said she would sever ties with him. Moreover, if Jiang Zhen truly did anything to her mother...Shen Mubai, who was returning to the hospital after having a meal outside, happened to see her squatting outside the entrance. He was stunned when he realized that it was Jiang Sese and that she was weeping.What happened?He didn't walk up to her to ask what was happening, choosing to enter the hospital in silence.He had heard about Jiang Sese and Jin Fengchen's situation from Jin Fengyao a few days ago.Jiang Sese must be here at the hospital because of her mother!If his memory served him right, Jiang Sese's mother was hospitalized in the neurology department. He went straight to the department's reception and asked, "Is there something wrong with the patient in Ward No. 203?"The young nurse was spellbound by his pretty face and it took her a few mom
The young nurse's eyes brightened, instantly overjoyed."Really? You're the best, darling!"She wrapped her arms around Li Ying's neck.Li Ying was tearing at the young nurse's shirt with one hand, craving to keep going to the next step, when his office door was pushed open.Hearing the commotion outside, Li Ying's expression turned sour at the interruption. He stopped moving his hand and said moodily, "Who is it? Don't you know how to knock before coming in? Don't you know…" The rules.Before he could finish, he was shocked by what he saw when he looked up."D… Dean."Li Ying thought it was some ignorant young nurse who forgot to knock. He never thought it would be the busy hospital dean.He recovered his senses and hastily tidied his clothes.The pale-faced dean only felt tremendous shame at this moment.The young nurse, even more so, was so horrified that she couldn't speak."Dean, why are you here? Did something happen?"Now properly dressed, Li Ying stepped forward to
Jiang Zhen understood Jiang Sese's temper well. Her mother was her only weakness and she would never wait twenty-four hours.He would pressure her a little more tomorrow morning. She would naturally look for Jin Fengchen and convince him about the cooperation like a good girl.Jiang Nuannuan was sitting next to him. Having learned of this piece of good news, her face was full of smiles. Nevertheless, she inexplicably felt an ominous premonition.Would things truly go as smoothly as her father anticipated?Right then, their doorbell rang and Jiang Zhen was surprised. It was so late at night; could it be that Jiang Sese had come?He got up and opened the door with such a thought in mind. When he saw the two police officers standing outside the door, he was dumbfounded."Sir, you're…"Jiang Sese was standing behind the officers, staring daggers at him.One of the officers said, "Mr. Jiang, we found out that you have illegally taken a patient away. Please return the patient at once
