Jiang Sese looked positively flustered. She was worried that Su Shan had witnessed Jin Fengchen hugging her outside the office building just minutes ago.Su Shan bobbed her head wordlessly at her, but there was the unmistakable hint of suspicion in her look."All right then," she muttered doubtfully, "But do let me know if you're not feeling well! I don't want you working if you should be in bed!"Su Shan sure knew how to kiss up to someone, most importantly someone attached to the boss!"Errr... All right. Thank you, Manager," Jiang Sese said with a smile.She waited until Su Shan disappeared around the corner and grabbed a folder from her inbox, trying to keep her mind away from what happened while concentrating on work....The day sped by quickly. Jiang Sese stopped mid-journey to buy some vegetables before she headed home. She was barely home for long when the doorbell buzzed.And who else would be it if not Xiaobao who was there for dinner."Xiaobao is here, Aunt Sese!"
Ignoring his brother, Jin Fengchen tapped on his phone and gave Jiang Sese his measurements. At the bottom of his reply, he included a question: What do you want my measurements for?Jiang Sese looked at his reply and smiled, crafted an answer so mysterious with only a single word that said:Secret.With the measurements Jin Fengchen had supplied her, Jiang Sese then completed the order for the costumes.Jin Fengyao craned over, trying to steal a glimpse of his brother's phone while asking, "So, what's my future sister-in-law saying? Why is she asking about your measurements?""And what is it to you?" Jin Fengchen remarked frostily.Despite Jiang Sese's witty and cryptic answer, Jin Fengchen easily guessed her purpose. A smile formed on his face intuitively as he mused, "There're still a few days until the event! What an anxious girl she is!"Sitting just before him, Jin Fengyao watched with disbelief as the smile on his brother's face broke like the blooming petals of a flower.
Then, the voice on the line was replaced by the mellow and rich voice of a man."Go to bed early. I will fetch you tomorrow."It was Jin Fengchen.Jiang Sese's heart thumped twice. She pursed her lips and said, "Okay.""Hmm. Good night.""Good night."After the call ended, Jiang Sese remained in a daze for a few seconds before hastily clearing the table and going to bed.......The next day, Jin Fengchen picked Jiang Sese up early in the morning so she could do her makeup at his home.When they arrived at the Jin family home, she handed him the proposal."The proposal for Xiaobao's birthday celebration is ready. Can you take a look and tell me if I need to fix anything?"Jin Fengchen took the file from her hand and pored over it.The proposal was thorough, detailing many elements that Xiaobao liked.He could tell that she had poured her heart into this proposal.No wonder it was so difficult for him and Xiaobao to even see her recently. The culprit turned out to be this p
Lan Qian shrunk in fear at Jiang Sese's imposing manner, but then she remembered that the latter had nothing at all now. On the other hand, she was the eldest daughter of the Lan family. What right did Jiang Sese have to act so arrogantly in front of her?Her maliciousness intensified. She pointed to Xiaobao and said, "I'm talking about him! Am I wrong? The apple doesn't fall far from the tree! Considering your morally bankrupt character, I suppose that your son is no different!""Pah!" A searing pain began spreading out from the center of Lan Qian's left cheek. She looked at Jiang Sese in shock.The others were shocked. No one expected Jiang Sese to hit someone in front of so many people."Jiang Sese, you dare hit me? Why? Did I say something wrong? Your son is an illegitimate child!"Lan Qian's husband couldn't stand seeing his wife being slapped. In a fit of anger, he commanded his assistant to get the principal.When the principal arrived, he said aggressively, "Principal, th
Jiang Sese was overjoyed to see Xiaobao so happy. This happiness, out of the blue, almost made her feel like they were a family of three.She couldn’t help thinking of her child from her past. "He should be as big as Xiaobao is now, right?""How is he..."There was a deep sadness under Jiang Sese’s eyes, and Jin Fengchen noticed that something was wrong with her emotions immediately."She was so happy one second ago, did she think of something sad?""What on earth is it? Or it could be some person that made her this way."Jin Fengchen licked his lips without asking the question.Jiang Sese stopped thinking about it, and after the event was over, she left with Jin Fengchen and Xiaobao.After she changed her clothes at home, the three of them went to a restaurant to have dinner.It was very quiet in the restaurant. Xiaobao raised his glass and proposed a toast happily. "Daddy, Mo... Aunt Sese. Here’s to the first place we got tonight, cheers!"Jiang Sese raised her glass with a
The old couple didn’t find anything strange though, and they were now all sitting in the living room.Su Qingyin passed a box on the table to Xiaobao."Xiaobao, this is a limited-edition racecar toy that Auntie bought abroad especially for you. Do you like it?"Su Qingyin naturally knew how much the old Jin couple and Jin Fengchen loved and spoiled Xiaobao, so she had to please him!Xiaobao shot a cold glance at the toy and wasn’t that surprised or impressed."I don’t want gifts from this aunt! I just want my Aunt Sese."Lady Jin knew exactly what was on her grandchild’s mind so she hurriedly stood up and spoke up, "Thank you very much, Qingyin. Xiaobao really likes it, but you don’t have to bring any marvelous gifts when you pay us a visit in the future.""Auntie, you’re very welcome."The smile on Su Qingyin’s face covered her worse mood inside."It looks like this young prince of Jin family isn’t a piece of cake."After a few casual conversations, Lady Jin started to get t
After the meeting, Jiang Sese went back to her desk and started to go through the materials that Su Shan just sent to her email.She frowned after reading the materials of Cloud Attire's background and introduction. "It won’t be easy to get this project."She had to take every aspect into consideration to make the best plan for the promotion of Cloud Attire.She started to think thoroughly about the matter. "How can I make their impact powerful enough for foreign countries?"...Time passed quickly when she was busy.Jiang Sese lost track of time until the phone on her desk rang. She picked it up and Xiaobao’s miserable voice was heard."Aunt Sese, you are not at home?"Xiaobao asked the driver to take him to Jiang Sese’s place right after school so he could have dinner with her as usual. But he waited at the door and pressed the doorbell for a long time, but still, no one answered.Jiang Sese looked at her watch only to find that it was already past six o'clock."Crap, how c
Xiaobao came visiting again when she was home after work, with Jin Fengchen tagging along."Aunt Sese! Xiaobao missed you so much! We haven't seen each other for almost a couple of days!""Hmm! Come on in!" Jiang Sese stroked Xiaobao's hair, smiling. She could not bring herself to be cold to Xiaobao.She took his hand and led him into her apartment. But all the while, she said nothing to Jin Fengchen, without so much as a glance at him.But Jin Fengchen hardly felt anything and trotted in after them without a word."Please wait for me in the living room, Xiaobao. Aunt Sese needs to start cooking now.""Let me help," Jin Fengchen said at once."Me too! I want to help to cook, Aunt Sese!""That's OK. I was almost finished when you got here. Just wait for me in the living room," she declined coolly.Jiang Sese quickly retreated back into the kitchen.Jin Fengchen stared at her wordlessly, wearing a bewildered frown as she disappeared.He could sense that there was something wro
