Jin Fengyao's words were like a sudden bolt of lightning striking Song Qingwan's ears.She thought she had misheard him or encountered a delusion, but reality proved that she had heard him correctly."Jin Fengyao, do you know what you're saying?" Her voice was shaking.Worried about shocking her with his sudden request, Jin Fengyao immediately explained, "Of course. Lil' Wan, I'm not joking here. I'm being sincere."He wanted to hold her hand but she evaded his touch once again.She looked at him in confusion and asked, emphasizing every word, "Jin Fengyao, do you know what it means to like someone? To love someone? Have you wondered what is it that you like about me?""I..." Jin Fengyao didn't know how to answer her.He had always treated everything with a healthy dose of cynicism, and it had become his habit as well. He had never truly fallen for someone.All he knew was that his feelings for Song Qingwan were different from everyone else.But, he couldn't really explain wha
Jin Fengchen looked like the type to remain a bachelor, but he was the undisputed flirting champion that even Jin Fengyao had to acknowledge.The moment he thought about it, he put it into action and went to Jin Fengchen's bedroom.He stopped short of knocking the door."Wouldn't I be losing face if I just ask him like this?" Putting aside his brother's reaction, his sister-in-law would surely laugh at him."Forget it, let's think of something else instead."He didn't want to be looked down on, so he had to return to his room in low spirits.Jin Fengyao spent the next few days cooped up in his room, and he would only meet his family during meals.Mrs. Jin could tell that her son was acting odd; why was he acting like a completely different person?Knowing Jin Fengyao, he should have gone out and fooled around instead of staying home like a good boy.Mrs. Jin sneaked upstairs, wanting to find out what was happening to him.To her surprise, they stumbled into each other awkwa
The breeze caressed Jin Fengyao's cheek, making him feel a sense of contentment.He sat down on an empty spot and started daydreaming, refusing to think about anything.It wasn't until the evening that he finally went home.In the evening, Jiang Sese brought up Jin Fengyao's matter to Ji Fengchen. She couldn't control her smile when she recalled Jin Fengyao's expression that morning.After hearing her explanation, Jin Fengchen was laughing as well. His eyes crinkled and the corner of his lips curved joyfully.Jiang Sese's expression became crafty and her voice was joyful. "That kid is getting a taste of his own medicine. Finally, there's someone who can control him! I suppose Qingwan will be our future sister-in-law."She poked Jin Fengchen's waist, making his smile wider. He caressed her hair with his large hand and laughed. "Silly girl.""You're the silly one."Unhappy with the insult, Jiang Sese hit his shoulder hard with her fist.Jin Fengchen's expression didn't change; i
Halfway through Jiang Sese's busy day at work, her phone rang.It was a call from Lu Zheng.Surprised by the sudden call, she asked, "Why did you suddenly call me, Senior? Did something happen?""I'm having a party to celebrate my birthday tonight. Are you free to come?" Lu Zheng's pleasant voice reached her ear."Of course, I do. I'll even bring you a gift," Jiang Sese said teasingly.She had always admired her senior.Moreover, Lu Zheng was her savior and she wouldn't have her current achievements without him.Jiang Sese didn't avoid Zifeng while she was on the phone, so Zifeng overheard the entire conversation.Zifeng frowned and looked disdainfully at Jiang Sese.Her stare was so obvious that only a fool wouldn't understand her mind."Who called you? Don't you know how to avoid suspicion?" Zifeng crossed her arms and looked down at Jiang Sese as if trying to suppress her with her pressure.Her innuendo made Jiang Sese angry, and her tone became icy as well. "What does it
"Sure."Jiang Sese smiled at him, her eyes two pretty crescent moons.Lu Zheng was lost in her smile and appeared infatuated.However, he quickly concealed his true feelings as he returned to his usual refined look.Looking at her, Lu Zheng smiled.He saw that she was doing very well. She was more beautiful than before, and that just showed how happy she was with that man."That's good enough for me. I can let go now, knowing that she's happy." Lu Zheng thought to himself, feeling a little sad."Brother Lu Zheng!" A clear female voice woke Lu Zheng up from his reverie.Jiang Sese had already noticed the young woman next to Lu Zheng.The two of them seemed closed, but since Lu Zheng didn't introduce her, Jiang Sese found it inappropriate to ask."Hello, I'm Jiang Sese." Jiang Sese introduced herself.The young woman smiled prettily. "Hello, sister, I've heard about you already. Brother Lu Zheng told me that you were coming today, and I was so looking forward to meeting you."
The next day...Early the next morning, after Xiaobao left for school, Jiang Sese went to work.There was a pile of files on her desk, and her eyes were already tired after she had gone through half of them, so she stood up and looked out of the window.Her phone rang at that moment.Jiang Sese cheered up when she saw the caller ID, and her fatigue was completely vanished."Fengchen." She called his name cheerfully.Jin Fengchen hadn't come back yet, but he had been calling her every day.Jin Fengchen chuckled on the other end. "Where are you now?""At the office. I'm going through some files." Jiang Sese felt her ears tingle; the guy's voice was so sexy that she thought her ears were going to get pregnant."I'm hopeless. Even Jin Fengchen's chuckle can make me blush." Rubbing her ears, Jiang Sese thought embarrassedly to herself."Impressive." Jin Fengchen offered his compliment.Sticking out her chest, Jiang Sese said proudly, "Of course I'm impressive. I'm that good."Sh
"And that baby was Xiaobao."Mrs. Jin's stomach lurched when she heard those words out of Sheng Zhixia's mouth, and she said decisively, "That's impossible."Shen Zhixia's smile looked more like a grimace, and she covered her face. "Aunt, I'm telling the truth. I really am Xiaobao's mother. My poor Xiaobao; he has never met his real mother."Mrs. Jin said harshly, "If you really are Xiaobao's biological mother, then why didn't you turn up earlier?""I've been looking everywhere, but I just couldn't find him."Mrs. Jin didn't seem convinced at all.Sheng Zhixia looked at Mrs. Jin as tears welled up in her eyes. "My baby was taken away as soon as I gave birth to him, and I didn't know where to look for him."A tear rolled down the woman's cheeks.More tears came out of her eyes until her cheeks were streaked with them.Seeing that the woman had started crying out in the open, Mrs. Jin couldn't help frowning. "Stop crying and wipe your tears away."Fumbling around in her bag, Sh
That night, after tucking Xiaobao in, Jiang Sese quietly closed the door before going to Mrs. Jin's room.Mrs. Jin was surprised to see her visitor. "Sese, is Xiaobao asleep yet? Why are you here?""Yes, he is." Jiang Sese smiled, leaning on the door frame. She then looked at Mrs. Jin, asking, "Mom, are you not feeling well?"Mrs. Jin was bewildered. "Why do you say that?"Jiang Sese had noticed during dinner that Mrs. Jin had been feeling ill at ease. She had paid more attention to her grandson than usual, and it worried Jiang Sese."You look upset." After a pause, Jiang Sese explained.Mrs. Jin was greatly touched by her daughter-in-law's concern for her, but she was soon reminded of Sheng Zhixia. Despite the upsetting feeling, she didn't let anything show. Smiling, she said, "Don't worry. I probably just got tired from all the shopping today."Jiang Sese immediately said, "Then you should go to bed. Good night."Mrs. Jin watched Jiang Sese from behind as she left, then close
