Looking at Jiang Sese, he spoke softly, “Mommy, does it still hurt?” Jiang Sese’s face was pale, but she smiled as she said comfortingly, “It’s fine, it doesn’t hurt anymore.” She looked at Jin Fengchen once more, pleading, hoping that he would provide a good example for Xiaobao. With that look, Jin Fengchen could not say anything more to Xiaobao. His cold face softened slightly and he spoke to Xiaobao, “Be a good boy and stay with Mommy. Don’t disturb her.” Xiaobao pouted slightly, but he nodded obediently. Jin Fengchen stood up and remembered that the matter with that woman was not yet settled. He went out to get Gu Nian to bring her in. He had no idea what Gu Nian did, but when Adeline saw Jin Fengchen, she was so afraid, she kept looking away. She did not dare to lay eyes on Jin Fengchen. Jin Fengchen was cold as ice, as though he were regarding an insect. “Apologize!” The word burst coldly from his lips. Adeline shuddered, but she bit her lip obstinately, refus
Fu Jingyun suppressed the displeasure he felt and stood aside. He still looked on at Jiang Sese with concern. Jin Fengchen saw he was no longer pestering her, and rushed off to get the doctor. Very soon, the doctor rushed over. When she saw the bloodstains on Jiang Sese’s clothes, she immediately lost her temper. The doctor placed her things heavily on the table, and seemed displeased. “What’s this? Do you not want your body anymore? It’s bad enough the wound reopened once, and now it’s opened a second time. Your body can’t take this, you know?” How could she not be angry when a patient’s wounds reopened twice in such a short time. She had put a lot of effort into treating her until she was slightly better, then one thing after another happened. As a doctor, she could not accept this kind of behavior. Looking at the doctor’s dark face, no one in the ward made a sound. They did not dare disturb her. Jin Fengchen and Fu Jingyun both knew that they had been unreasonable.
Because of what had happened, Jiang Sese’s wound had gotten slightly worse. She was only a few days away from being discharged, but now she needed to recover again. However, Tiantian and Xiaobao always came to chat with Jiang Sese and help her feel better. Jin Fengchen would also come by often. The days spent in the hospital were not too bad. At the Fu household, Fu Jingyun returned home, his eyes weary. A whole day of work made him look slightly haggard. After he changed into his slippers, he glanced at Madam Fu who was sitting unnaturally silently on the sofa. Putting his briefcase on a chair in the living room, he asked, “Mom, what’s wrong?” Madam Fu saw Fu Jingyun, and she stared at him for a while before she said, “Did Adeline go to the hospital to find Sese? Did she pick a fight with her until Sese’s wound reopened?” Fu Jingyun did not expect Madam Fu to hear about it so soon. Pained guilt hardened his face. Pursing his lips, he looked down and said, “Mom, you fou
How could Jiang Sese not see that Fu Jingyun had picked such a lame excuse? There seemed to be another layer between them now. The both of them could see and hear each other, but they were unable to close the distance and touch one another. She replied, “Okay, I won’t send you off then.” Fu Jingyun nodded, and turned to leave the hospital. Seeing Fu Jingyun leave, Xiaobao cocked his head in thought, but he could not figure it out. He asked curiously, “Mommy, what were you and Uncle talking about just now?” Jiang Sese heard this and she smiled. Her eyes curved slightly like moons in the night sky, gentle and kind. Holding Xiaobao’s little hand, she said, “Nothing, Uncle was just here to say a few words to Mommy.” Xiaobao nodded pensively, but looked at the direction of Fu Jingyun leaving once more. For a few days since Fu Jingyun came, Jin Fengchen, who often came by to talk to Jiang Sese, did not appear. Jiang Sese was unaccustomed to Jin Fengchen’s sudden disappeara
When Jiang Sese heard this, she nodded. Jin Fengchen behaved and lay down, as Jiang Sese pulled a blanket over him. When he was sound asleep, she gently walked toward the stairs. When she reached the landing, she could hear a commotion downstairs. Jin Fengyao and his wife had brought Xiaobao and Tiantian over. Hearing the noise, Jin Fengyao looked up the stairs. His hands froze in midair. However Song Qingwan took advantage of the lull and the clear sound of a slap resounded across the living room. Everyone was stunned. It was not a light slap. Jin Fengyao gasped. He was preparing to say something when Song Qingwan unexpectedly berated him. “You clearly knew I wanted to hit you, why didn’t you move? Are you stupid?” Her tone of voice was full of anger, but also full of regret. Jin Fengyao’s anger subsided almost completely at that. He squeezed his face, still burning with the marks Song Qingwan’s fingers left. “This is nothing. It didn’t hurt anyway. Do you want t
That night, Fu Jingyun brought a tiffin as he planned to visit Jiang Sese. The tiffin was filled with pork ribs and lotus root soup that he had learnt to make from the nanny for the entire day. This was his most successful attempt. When he reached the room, he completely did not notice the female nurse who was observing in the dark. Pushing the door open and going in, he saw that the ward was empty. Jiang Sese was nowhere to be seen. He waited for a long while, but did not see Jiang Sese return. He had a bad feeling in his mind, but very quickly he calmed himself down. Running to the hospital security room, he acquired the CCTV recordings of Jiang Sese’s ward from the security staff. Fu Jingyun leaned forward, both hands on the desk, his eyes closely scanning the footage. When he saw a white-clad figure leaving the ward, his heart was filled with suspicion. Could it be that she had secretly left when he was not around? His suspicion was very quickly confirmed. He di
As soon as she said this, she cut the call. The nurse did not leave immediately. Her eyes scanned the empty ward. The tiffin was still there. She looked at the blood on the wall and she walked in with a straight face. She turned on the lights and cleaned everything up before she left the ward. Early the next morning, the sun shone through the gap in the curtain and fell on the bed. Feeling the warmth, Jiang Sese’s eyelashes fluttered. She rolled over and opened her eyes, reaching out to grab her phone from the bedside table. She checked the time. It was still early. After making the bed, she could not help but smile as she turned and left the room. Afraid of waking up Jin Fengchen and Xiaobao, she kept her footsteps light as she walked down the stairs, her every step cautious. However, the maid was already busy in the kitchen. Jiang Sese stood at the door for a while before the maids noticed her. “Good morning, Young Madam. Please take a seat in the living room. Bre
“Okay, then I’ll be waiting for you.” Jiang Sese ruffled his hair and smiled gently. With that, Jiang Sese turned and left. She hailed a cab and left in a cloud of dust. Jin Fengchen stood at the window of the landing in his black house clothes, his hands in his pockets. His deep eyes looked in the direction that Jiang Sese left. The warm sun shone on him, dissipating the coldness he emanated. Xiaobao looked at Jin Fengchen’s unmoving figure curiously, “Daddy? Mommy’s left.” Jin Fengchen snapped out of it. He turned to look at Xiaobao, smiling warmly, “Yeah, I know.” Meanwhile, Jiang Sese paid the fare and walked into the elevator of the hospital. She pulled her phone out in boredom and surfed the web. With a ding, the elevator doors opened and Jiang Sese looked up and walked out. Despite herself, her heart felt uneasy. ‘Fu Jingyun probably did not come last night…’ If not, he would have tried to contact her when he could not find her. Scrolling through her phone’
