Old Man Fang responded with a chuckle. He then said to Fang Yuchen, “Ah Chen, bring Sese and Fengchen for a tour of the house. I’ll be done soon.” Jiang Sese and Fang Yuchen nodded in response. The two children then said goodbye to Old Man Fang at Jin Fengchen’s signal. They then left the garden, and Fang Yuchen prepared to bring them on a tour of the house. Fang Yuchen led Jiang Sese and family around the house. The old Fang residence was called a mansion, but it had the trappings of an old courtyard house. There was the air of simple antiquity all around. “The old Fang residence can be called an old house. It’s value is considerable, and Eldest Uncle and Second Uncle know this. If it were not for Grandpa’s constant objections and considered this place his and Grandma’s home, they would have probably sold it.” As they looked around, Fang Yuchen explained the situation to Jiang Sese.His voice was full of disapproval. Grandpa’s health was still good, and Eldest Uncle
“Oh, right. Dad should be done with his herb garden now.” Shang Ying said.They returned to the main hall. When they arrived, Old Man Fang was already seated and enjoying his tea.When he noticed the arrival of the group, he immediately placed his teacup down. He smiled and asked, “Where did you guys go? You took so long.”“I already finished a pot of tea by the time you guys came back.”Shang Ying replied first with a smile. “Sese asked about mom, and she wanted to pay her respects. So, we brought her to the ancestral hall. That’s why we took so long.”Old Man Fang was startled when he heard the explanation. Then, he could barely conceal his delight as he smilingly nodded. “Good, good.”He was very touched by Sese’s kind thoughts.Sese was already married into the Jin family, but she still cared about her family. It was more than enough for him.Old Man Fang thought about his two useless sons after that. His sons only cared about how to secure a bigger portion of inheritance a
Old Man Fang had won a game he was unlikely to win.Fang Teng was stunned at the comeback, and he was surprised. He looked at the couple who were looking at each other flirtatiously.“Sese, so you are good at chess too!”Jiang Sese helped them to reset the board. She smiled and explained, “I’m not good at it, but since I watched a lot of games, I learned a little.”Old Man Fang laughed heartily. He thoughtfully added, “Perhaps someone was giving you a chance.”Old Man Fang was old and experienced enough to be observant. He could tell something fishy was going on.Then again, this also proved that Jin Fengchen lovingly doted on Jiang Sese.Old Man Fang smiled and looked at Jin Fengchen after saying that.Jin Fengchen simply smiled in acknowledgment.Jiang Sese finally realized Jin Fengchen was just going easy on her. Her face flushed instantly.She pretended to be angry and glared at Jin Fengchen.She felt that since her grandfather wanted to play, Jin Fengchen should have pl
Due to the uncles’ obvious intentions, the atmosphere at the dining area became awkward and tense.Eldest Aunty was unhappy at the atmosphere. However, she did not dare show her dissatisfaction. Instead, she smilingly said to Jin Fengchen, “Wouldn’t it be the same whether we ask you or your brother? We’re all one family. A family should always help each other, right?”Second Aunty was unwilling to let her chance be snatched away by Eldest Aunty.After the Eldest Aunty finished, she immediately interrupted. “Yes, it’s important to have a harmonious family. It’s just a project, right? Fengchen, could you please help your Second Uncle?”The two women kept going at each other and totally overlooked that Old Man Fang’s mood was turning foul.The two uncles were the same as well. All they did was look toward Jin Fengchen with hopeful eyes, waiting for his reply.“My apologies. I just returned to the country not long ago, so I’m not very clear about the company’s business. I can’t hel
That was why Old Man Fang did not ask Jin Fengchen and Jiang Sese to stay, even though he wished to stay with Jiang Sese and her family longer.“Hmm.” Old Man Fang grunted as a reply. Then, he said, “Let Ah Chen send you guys off.”“Then… Ah Chen, can you send us to the hotel?”Jiang Sese did not have any objections. When they came to the Fangs’ place, it was by Old Man Fang’s car. Now they had to return to the hotel to collect their car.Before leaving, she politely told Old Man Fang, “Grandfather, we’ll visit you again soon.”Fang Yuchen nodded to his parents, then followed Jiang Sese and her family out.Eldest Uncle and Second Uncle still wanted to say something, but Old Man Fang glared at them, shutting them right up.He thought that he could spend the day with his granddaughter. His plan was ruined by his useless sons.How would he have felt?At the hotel… Jiang Sese felt relaxed when he finally got back into Jin Fengchen’s car.When Eldest Uncle and Second Uncle were
Fang Xueman was a little stunned when she heard Fang Yuchen’s name.Her memories of the past instantly flooded her thoughts. How many years had it been since she heard that name?Fang Xueman was a little teary as sadness flowed through her veins. “W…When did your cousin find you? Did he say anything?”When she came back to her senses, Fang Xueman gripped Jiang Sese’s hand tightly and looked at her with hopeful, nervous eyes.Jiang Sese held Fang Xueman’s cold hands.She paused a little, then deliberately told her the main point.“He said Grandfather has been searching for you. He wanted to meet you on his eightieth birthday.”Fang Xueman tightened her grip unconsciously.She should have known… She always remembered his father’s birthday.Jiang Sese stopped for a while before continuing. “However, you were still in a coma then. I didn’t tell Grandfather that you were sick. Mom, I went to his birthday party on your behalf. You’re not mad, right?”Fang Xueman sniffed a littl
To Jiang Sese, Fu Jingyun’s parents were like her parents as well.They would be seeing each other less often from now on since Jiang Sese would be living in her home country permanently.Jiang Sese would miss them very much.“Sese, we’re happy as long as you’re well.”Madam Fu hugged Tiantian in one of her arms, then reached with her other to hold Jiang Sese’s hand. “There’s a saying that ‘there is no never-ending feast’. We are happy so long as you remember us! Take care and live well.”Her smile was kind, and the way she looked at Jiang Sese was like looking at her dearest daughter.Jiang Sese was touched and choked up a little. She was at a loss for words.“Child, don’t be so sad. You’re always welcome here.” Master Fu patted Jiang Sese’s shoulder and smiled kindly.Jiang Sese’s tears rolled down her cheeks. “Thanks, Mom, Dad.”“Sese, don’t cry. Come and find us if you feel unhappy. This is your home too.”Madam Fu felt sorry seeing Sese’s tears. She reached out her hands
Jin Fengchen chuckled and went into the bathroom.Jiang Sese had wanted to wait for Jin Fengchen so they could sleep together.However, she felt unusually sleepy and dizzy the moment she sat on her bed.Jin Fengchen’s hair was still wet when he came out from the bathroom.The bedroom was not brightly lit; only the warm bed lights were left on.Jiang Sese was already asleep and Jin Fengchen was touched by the image of her sleeping.Right beside Jiang Sese, Tiantian was asleep in an unceremonious posture. Jin Fengchen chuckled at Tiantian’s cute sleeping pose, who slept with her tummy showing.After Jin Fengchen dried his hair, he covered the mother-daughter duo with a thin blanket.Then, he left the bedroom and headed to the home office to continue with his unfinished work.Not long after he left the bedroom, Tiantian woke up.She rubbed her eyes and wanted to call for her parents. However, she noticed that Mommy was still asleep.Tiantian decided not to wake Jiang Sese up.
