The men on the board of directors were all professionals. Although they were curious, they would never rush forward without so much as a wink.They pretended as if nothing had happened and proceeded with the meeting that had been interrupted a while ago.After the meeting, Jin Fengchen went home and changed his clothes before going to the agreed-upon venue to meet Jiang Sese.They met at a private restaurant. The decor was simple and it protected the privacy of its customers well.When Fengchen Jin arrived, Jiang Sese had been waiting for a while.After he sat down, Jiang Sese handed Jin Fengchen the menu.Jin Fengchen had no preference where food was concerned. He just ordered a few dishes.Then, he asked the waiter to bring them a bottle of red wine.Jin Fengchen fixed his gaze on Jiang Sese’s eyes. He could sense that she was not in a good mood.“You wanted to see me?” The man's voice was cool. The concern in his tone was evident.The initial determination that Jiang Sese
Seeing him like this worried Madam Jin.“Tell us what happened? Did you quarrel with Sese?”Jin Fengchen had always been submissive toward Jiang Sese. He basically agreed to her every request. They could not have argued if logic serves.Why had this suddenly changed?Just as the few of them were secretly speculating, Jin Fengchen opened his mouth when they least expected it, “She’s going to divorce me. The wedding with Fu Jingyun is scheduled for next month.”This news was undoubtedly a bolt from the blue for those present.“What?” Jin Fengyao exclaimed in shock.Out of all the possibilities, he never imagined that Jiang Sese would be the one to initiate the divorce.This was an extremely tragic thing for Jin Fengchen.Jin Fengyao could not help but stare worriedly at Jin Fengchen.Madam Jin was also taken aback. She quickly said, “What now? Did she tell you this in person?”“Yes. It was voluntary.”Jin Fengchen’s tone was gentle, but mechanical, without a trace of emotion.
Jiang Sese sensed that something was amiss and asked, “What’s the matter?”Jin Fengchen’s expression was extremely unpleasant. His voice suddenly turned hoarse. “Xiaobao has disappeared.”Realizing that it concerned Xiaobao, Jiang Sese also became anxious and queried, “How could he have disappeared? Where did he go?”Jin Fengchen shook his head. “The school called and said that Xiaobao showed up at school for a while, then left. They could not find him.”“Maybe he went home.” Jiang Sese held on to this glimmer of hope.Jin Fengchen remained silent, his expression solemn.He then gave Madam Jin a call, but his expression turned even more unpleasant.As he had expected, Xiaobao did not return home.He had run away from home!Nobody knew where he had gone.Since that day, Jin Fengchen had known that Xiaobao had changed. However, he was just faking his usual routine.Jin Fengchen was also depressed himself. He could not monitor Xiaobao.Also, he thought that Xiaobao was just be
Xiaobao had never been like this before; he was always sensible and good-natured.Seeing his grandmother crying like this, he would have said something to comfort her.“Xiaobao?” Master Fu called out to him.Xiaobao just stared at him blankly with no reaction.Everyone had begun to gradually see that something was amiss.Xiaobao’s expression felt like it was… Madam Jin let go of Xiaobao and asked, tears in her eyes, “My dear grandson, are you feeling okay? Just tell Grandma, alright?”Xiaobao took a step back and distanced himself from everyone.Everyone there was stunned.What was happening?Xiaobao was only gone for half a day. Why had he become like this?Master Jin and Jin Fengchen’s expression grew solemn.Jin Fengchen called out to Xiaobao again, but Xiaobao did not give much of a reaction. The entire family’s heart sank.This child… Did he shut himself off again?They then shifted their gaze toward Jiang Sese, hoping that she would say something to Xiaobao.After
Fortunately, Jiang Sese was able to stop her tears in time and went over to comfort Tiantian.Only then, was the Fu house able to return to peace.The next day, Jin Fengchen drove his parents and Xiaobao to the airport.He repeatedly exhorted many things to Xiaobao, telling him to behave himself, to listen to his grandparents, and that he would come back to visit him soon.Xiaobao just continued to play with his phone with his head lowered, as if not hearing a thing.Jin Fengchen frowned and was about to say something sternly, but swallowed his words when he saw Madam Jin’s expression in the rearview mirror.He hoped that the child would return to his normal self.As there were some issues that needed tending back at the domestic company, Jin Fengyao and Song Qingwan had taken a flight back the night before.At the airport, Jin Fengchen went through the registration procedures for them.Xiaobao was very well behaved, despite his grandmother holding his hand. He just spaced out
Even the brightest stars had their dark days. The air immediately turned very quiet. Jin Fengchen then continued, “I’m going back. Buy me tickets for the night after tomorrow.” No matter how much she had prepared herself, hearing him say it still left her empty. She was clearly suffering, but she could only pretend she did not care. “Is that so? I’ll send you off to the airport then.” “No need,” Jin Fengchen refused as he shook his head. He then looked at Jiang Sese once more before he spoke quietly, “As for the divorce, I would like to do it after Xiaobao’s condition improves. I hope you can understand. You can hold the wedding first. It won’t affect things.” “It’s fine.” Jiang Sese smiled as she said this to Jin Fengchen. However, only she knew how much her heart hurt at that moment. She could only keep her heart locked up tight, and not show any emotion. ‘You brought this upon yourself. Don’t blame anyone else.’ After a while, Jin Fengchen spoke once more, “W
Seeing him leaving, Zi Feng once more grabbed hold of his sleeve and asked insistently, “Why did he want to leave?” Her only meaning for existence these days was solely Jin Fengchen. Seeing the love that was not for him in Zi Feng’s eyes, Bai Li’s heart was once again shredded. The pain in his heart intensified, and he spoke with a cracking voice, “Do you want to know?” “Yes! I do.” Zi Feng replied quickly. “Ms. Jiang is going to marry Mr. Fu. Boss doesn’t want to make things difficult for her, so he went home.” Speaking the reason simply, Bai Li then extracted his hand and moved to leave. He could not bear to see Zi Feng sad. “What?” Zi Feng was struck dazed by this revelation. She did not dare believe it. The proud Jin Fengchen would go to such lengths for a woman. Just how much was he humiliating himself. The man she loved for so long had been cruelly crushed by this Jiang Sese woman! She was unwilling to resign herself to this! Zi Feng’s jealousy rea
Jin Fengchen saw that the call had ended. When he tried to call back he had been blocked. He could not help but feel confused. As for what Fu Jingyun said about the wedding being stopped, and Sese, what did it all mean? Had something happened to Sese? He hesitated for a moment, before deciding he could not stand by and watch. He immediately called a number and said, “Gu Nian, book me a ticket back to France. The sooner the better.” Even though Gu Nian did not know what Jin Fengchen intended with this, he still replied, “Very well, Chairman.” He could not help but wonder, ‘Didn’t the Chairman just return?’ However the boss’ work was not for his subordinates to question. After ending the call, Jin Fengchen picked up the jacket behind him and left, making his way to France at the greatest speed. He rushed to the airport to see Gu Nian standing a distance away, waiting for him. He got into a car, and Gu Nian got in as well. In the car, Jin Fengchen still remembered th
