The moment they returned to the Fang residence, Fang Cheng spoke impatiently before they had even sat down. “Everybody’s here. We must come to a conclusion tonight: who will take interim control of the Fang Group in the Old Man’s place.” Was he so impatient because he was worried people would not know his intentions?Jiang Sese put on a poker face and took Jin Fengchen’s hand, sitting the furthest away from things. She did not want to get involved for the time being. She wanted to listen and see what the others had to say. “That’s right. I agree with Fang Cheng,” Fang Rui added. As they all had similar goals, they stood on the same battle lines for now. Fang Teng massaged his brow, his tone of voice weary. “Fine, then who do you think should take the job?” “Yiming!” “Yanxin!” Fang Cheng and Fang Rui answered at the same time. They had nominated different people. The two men looked at each other. Fang Cheng used his status as the eldest son. “Little Brother, let’s not
Fang Rui was still dissatisfied despite matters still being decided.“Yuchen is too young. He has no ability to manage the company properly.” “If I am that incompetent, how could I obtain a partnership with the Jin Group?” Fang Yuchen turned to look at Jin Fengchen. Jin Fengchen knew that he should speak his mind, so he stood up. His low and cold voice rumbled, “I believe that under Yuchen’s future management, the Jin Group and Fang Group’s partnership will bring great profits to both parties.” His statement implied that he believed that Fang Yuchen had the ability to manage the Fang Group well. “He probably relied on Sese to secure this contract,” Fang Yanyin scoffed disdainfully. Jin Fengchen lifted his eyes and looked at him sternly. “You’re Sese’s cousin as well. Could you convince me to work with you?” Fang Yanxin instantly choked. He then hid behind his father in embarrassment. Fang Rui and family finally accepted reality. Matters had been decided; there was no poi
After Jiang Sese heard this, she turned to look at the unconscious old man. There were indescribable feelings in her heart. It weighed heavily on her. “He’s suffered such a serious accident. To put it bluntly, he’s on his last legs and we don’t know if he can recover.” Shang Ying wept as she said this. Seeing this, Jiang Sese’s heart ached and her eyes reddened. She took a deep breath and reached out to hold Shang Ying’s hand, forcing back her tears. “Grandpa will recover. He definitely will.” Before she finished speaking, tears began to flow. “I’m sorry.” Jiang Sese looked away and hurriedly wiped her tears away. Shang Ying patted Jiang Sese’s hand. “Let’s not cry anymore. The Old Man is very blessed; he definitely will get through this. Only…” Shang Ying’s expression tensed, as though she had a thought. “Aunty, what is it you want to say?” Jiang Sese asked. Shang Ying hesitated for a moment. “Sese, how’s your mother now?” Jiang Sese pursed her lips and answere
Fang Xueman sat next to Old Man Fang’s bed for nearly two hours. She barely moved. Jiang Sese was worried that she could not bear it. “Mom, why don’t you rest. I’ll look after Grandpa.” Fang Xueman shook her head. “It’s fine. I can do it.” Her insistence pained Jiang Sese and exasperated her as well. All that she could do was to stay with her. “Sese,” Fang Xueman suddenly called for her.“Yeah.” “I was a bad daughter, wasn’t I?” Fang Xueman turned to look at her, eyes full of grief. Jiang Sese did not answer. She could not tell who was at fault back then. This was a matter between her mother and her grandfather. As a member of the younger generation, she could not comment. “If I had listened to your Grandpa and Grandma, perhaps things would be different now, and your Grandma might not have left so soon.” At that, Fang Xueman choked up. “It’s because I was unfilial. Why didn’t I come back earlier. Why…” She hated her own pride and refusal to obey.It led to her n
“It really is a shame.” Shang Ying remembered the scene just before Old Madam Fang passed. Her heart wrenched, her eyes reddening unwittingly. “At the time, Mom was constantly calling for your name. Ah Teng and I were begging Dad to send people out to look for you, to not let Mom leave with regrets.” “Dad is like me, we’re equally stubborn,” Fang Xueman said with a bitter smile. “No.” Shang Ying shook her head. “Even though Dad is stubborn, he loved you the most, ever since you were young. If that were not the case, he would not have been so angry back then.” At that, Shang Ying suddenly realized that she was bringing up the past again. She quickly changed the topic. “Actually, he agreed to send someone to look for you, but they could not find you… In the end, Mom passed on.” This incident had become one of the largest regrets of the Fang family. “I’m sorry.” Fang Xueman was unsure how to express the regret and guilt she felt in her heart other than with an apology. “
Fang Yuchen walked into the ward and realized that the mood was not right. He looked at Fang Cheng, Fang Rui and their families, before looking at Jiang Sese and the others. When he saw Fang Xueman, his eyes lit up and he strode over. “Aunty Xueman.” His voice sounded excited. Fang Xueman was taken aback. “You are…” Shang Ying hurriedly introduced him. “Third Sister, this is my son, Fang Yuchen.” “It’s Ah Chen.” Fang Xueman assessed him. The excitement in her expression could not be hidden. “You’ve grown so big.” When she left home that year, Ah Chen was just a newborn. It had been so many years and he had grown up so much. “Aunty Xueman, it’s great that you’re back.” Fang Yuchen was very moved. Ever since he was young, he had heard a lot about Fang Xueman from his mother. Therefore, despite the fact that it was the first time they had actually met, Fang Yuchen still felt very close to her. “Thank you, Ah Chen.” Just as before, only Fang Xueman’s little brother’
“Tiantian!” Jiang Sese strode over.When she heard his voice, Tiantian immediately stopped crying and looked over. When she saw her, she cried even louder, even sadder now. “Baby, don’t cry.” Jiang Sese quickly picked her up and kissed her forehead. Her heart hurt so much she teared up. “You’re finally home.” Madam Jin sighed with relief. She looked at Jin Fengchen, who had just come in. “Tiantian’s been crying all day, and we can’t get her to stop.” There was no annoyance in her voice, only heartache and worry. Jin Fengchen walked and touched Tiantian’s forehead. He frowned. “What did the doctor say?” “The doctor said that it was flu season. Children’s immune systems aren’t great, so there’s no way for her to recover soon.” Tiantian was tired from crying and fell asleep in Jiang Sese’s arms. Her little face was still flushed red. Jiang Sese gently patted her head, her face full of pain. “Actually, she will get a lot better if she receives a jab,” Madam Jin said.
When Jiang Sese woke up, she found that she was in a car. She sat up in a daze and looked at the man who was driving. “Fengchen.” When he heard her voice, Jin Fengchen unconsciously hit the brakes. “Screech-” The tires made a sharp sound as it skid against the asphalt. Jin Fengchen turned his head to see her sitting up. He asked anxiously, “Are you feeling unwell?” Jiang Sese shook her head blankly. “No, why am I in the car?” “You fainted.” “I fainted?” Jiang Sese was even more dumbfounded. Was she not feeding Tiantian, how did she suddenly faint? Jin Fengchen did not know what was going on as well. He started driving again. “We’ll head to the research facility.” “Okay.” Jiang Sese did not feel particularly unwell, so why would she suddenly faint? This was a question only Mo Xie and Han Yu could explain clearly. She suddenly thought about something and asked worriedly, “Where’s Tiantian?” “Mom and dad are looking after her, don’t worry.” Jiang Sese sighe
