Jin Fengyao could see Jiang Sese’s concern. He thought about it for a second and then said, "I’ll tell my brother to come over. You just wait here."Jiang Sese wanted to say no, but Jin Fengchen had already seen them. He walked toward them carrying Xiaobao in his arms.The cool and cold look on Xiaobao’s face changed to a smile when the little guy laid his eyes on Jiang Sese. He jumped down from Jin Fengchen's arms and ran toward Jiang Sese.Jiang Sese caught him so he would not fall from running too fast.Xiaobao was very delighted to see her and he yelled, "Aunt Sese you are finally here. I've been waiting for you for so long!"Jiang Sese held him in her arms and said with a smile, "Yes I'm here. Happy Birthday, Xiaobao!""Thank you, Aunt Sese! I'm happy, very happy!"Jin Fengchen walked up to her while they were talking.He checked Jiang Sese out and he said, "This gown suits you very well."Jiang Sese nodded awkwardly.Jin Fengyao stood at the side of them with his arms c
Jin Fengchen would indeed be preoccupied that night and didn't have much time to take care of Jiang Sese. After thinking about it, he said, "Then I'll leave Xiaobao to you."She wouldn't be bored with Xiaobao around."Sure, sure, I'll stay here with Auntie Sese. You can stop worrying, Daddy! I'll take good care of her."Xiaobao was elated, looking like he couldn't wait to send his father off so the latter wouldn't disturb his time with Jiang Sese.Helplessness flitted across Jin Fengchen's eyes. In his rich, mellow voice, he said, "I'll be heading over then.""Mhm."Jiang Sese nodded. After watching him leave, she took Xiaobao around.They were strolling when they ran into Su Qingyin when the latter walked out of the washroom."What a coincidence, Miss Jiang.""Miss Su." Jiang Sese greeted her with a smile.Su Qingyin's eyes flickered when she spotted Xiaobao beside Jiang Sese. She was about to say something when Xiaobao tugged on Jiang Sese's hand and said, "I'm hungry, Aunt
It was obvious that Qin Shuang had knocked into Jiang Sese on purpose. She looked at the latter with a feigned look of astonishment. "Oh my, it's Jiang Sese. What a coincidence."Jiang Sese frowned as she sized both women up, impatience flitting across her pupils. She didn't want to pay them any mind, but Qin Shuang stopped her and said, "Jiang Sese, you're still so poorly educated. Don't you know how to apologize after knocking into someone?"The surrounding guests, who had been keeping an eye on Jiang Sese all along, turned to stare when they heard the commotion.Jiang Sese looked at them with a steely expression. Her voice was cold as she replied, "What do you want?"Qin Shuang smiled. "Nothing. It's just good manners for you to apologize after knocking into me, don't you think so?"Xiaobao immediately stepped forward and said, "Grandma, you're the one who knocked into Auntie Sese.""Xiaobao, it's all right."Jiang Sese pulled Xiaobao behind her. The light in her eyes dimmed.
Standing in a corner, Su Qingyin couldn't help feeling smug. She even feigned concern and said, "Could there be a misunderstanding? Miss Jiang doesn't look like someone who would do this."The corner of her mouth was upturned into a faint smile. Once this matter was blown up, Jiang Sese would be branded an impure woman of dubious background. She refused to believe that Master and Madam Jin would agree to let Jin Fengchen marry such a woman.Qin Shuang's eyes were red. She couldn't look any more miserable."Chairman Jin, Madam Jin, please help us! The Lan and Jiang families bear you no grudge, but because of you, the Lan Group is in grave danger! That's our life's work!"Madam Jin looked at Jin Fengchen. "Are they telling the truth? Did you target the two families because of her?"She didn't sound as gentle as usual. The Jin Family's education had always been strict. How could she and her husband not be furious if Jin Fengchen had targeted the Lan and Jiang families because of his
Qin Shuang and Lan Baichuan looked unreconciled but didn't quite know what else they could say.The crowd was giving Jiang Sese looks of pity for having the misfortune of having such family members.The chaos continued until Jin Fengchen spoke in his gloomy voice. "Did we invite the Lan Family today?""No," Jin Fengyao answered.It wasn't like Jin Fengyao wasn't aware of the relationship between the Lan and Jiang families. How could he invite these two to the banquet? Wasn't that asking for trouble?Jin Fengchen's face darkened a little more. "How did these two get in without an invitation? Throw them out."His voice was full of anger.Realization dawned on the others as well. These two must have obtained their invitation cards through improper channels.Panicking now, Lan Baichuan admitted his mistakes. "I'm sorry, Young Master Jin. We don't have ulterior motives. We're just trying to save the Lan Group. Please let us off!"Jin Fengchen ignored him. Several security guards ap
Master and Madam Jin were looking for Xiaobao and Jin Fengchen inside the ballroom for the cake-cutting ceremony, but they were nowhere to be seen.Madam Jin went up to Jin Fengyao and said, "Fengyao, find your brother and Xiaobao. It's time to cut the cake.""Mom, don't worry. I'll go now."He then went off to find his brother and nephew.Next to them, Su Qingyin chimed in, "Auntie, I'll help look for them as well."Madam Jin nodded.Su Qingyin left as well.She couldn't find them even after circling the entire venue. She had to ask a waiter in order to find out that the two of them seemed to have left for the deck.Su Qingyin walked over. Even from a distance, she could see Jiang Sese having a meal with Jin Fengchen and Xiaobao. They looked joyous as they talked. In fact, they appeared to be just like a family.This scene prompted her to ball her hands into fists.Jiang Sese, blissfully ignorant of the pair of eyes staring at them, was giving Xiaobao his present.It was th
It didn't long for Xiaobao to fall asleep in Jiang Sese's embrace.Her eyes couldn't help turning gentle as she looked at his peaceful sleeping face.She carefully removed herself from the bed and fished out her phone from her purse. She had put her phone on silent mode ever since the banquet started. Now, she found numerous missed calls and texts, most of them coming from the Lan and Jiang families.There wasn't anything surprising about the contents of those texts. They were trying to get her to clarify in public that Lan Sichen didn't cheat, and they wanted her to get Jin Fengchen to let them off...From the texts, she could tell just how desperate the Lan and Jiang families were.Jiang Sese could imagine how many disasters awaited the Lan couple after being thrown out of the banquet in front of so many people. She ignored the missed calls and texts and turned her phone off.They should have considered the consequences when they humiliated her in public. She wasn't the Holy Mo
Su Qingyin shot Jiang Sese a disdainful glance. She had known Jin Fengchen since she was young, and she was perfect for him. Who did Jiang Sese think she was? She would one day drive this woman out of Jin Fengchen's life."Of course I trust you, Cousin, but even so, we can't benefit her in any way. Wait here. I'll go over there and teach her a lesson."Su Qingyin wanted to stop her cousin, but Su Xinrui was already gone.She looked worried. They were at a Jin Family banquet; she didn't want to create any trouble here....Su Xinrui returned after a while with a bright smile on her face. She looked like she was in an excellent mood."What did you do, Xinrui?" Su Qingyin frowned at her."Just wait and see, Cousin!"The corners of Su Xinrui's mouth curved into a mysterious smile as the young woman stared at Jiang Sese below her.The sea breeze was so cold that it made Jiang Sese hug herself. She was about to leave when a man reeking of alcohol started walking toward her.She fro
