Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
Fang Xiaonuan had finally achieved her goal. She stretched her neck and glanced at Ji Lingchen’s hand from the corner of her eye. The nail marks she left on it were clearly visible. It indeed looked a little tragic.
Ji Lingchen’s thoughts had already drifted far away. He did not know what to think anymore.
The day to return home arrived as scheduled.
Fang Xiaonuan had already packed up early in the morning and was waiting for Ji Lingchen to appear. The moment she saw him, she could not help but say, “Remember what you promised me.”
Ji Lingchen ignored her. Instead, he placed all the gifts that he had prepared at home into the trunk of the Maybach.
The Fang family’s house was more than an hour’s drive from the Ji family’s residence. On the way, Fang Xiaonuan tried her best to behave well. She could not give Ji Lingchen any reason to embarrass her in front of everyone.
Ji Lingchen glanced at Fang Xiaonuan from the corner of his eye. He thought to himself, ‘It’s so quiet now. She’s so ladylike. I can even stare at her.’
Fang Xiaonuan said, “Ji Lingchen, drive properly. Why are you looking at me like you have nothing else to do?”
Ji Lingchen said, “You’re making me sick.”
Fang Xiaonuan did not say anything else and forced herself to endure it.
An hour passed in the blink of an eye. The Maybach was already approaching the Fang residence. Fang Xiaonuan immediately saw her parents waiting to welcome her at the door. She was a little nervous and looked at the man beside her. What if he did not keep his promise to her?
The car stopped. Ji Lingchen unfastened his seatbelt and prepared to go to the trunk to pick up his things. Fang Xiaonuan was in a hurry. She originally wanted to grab Ji Lingchen’s clothes, but she did not expect that she would grab his hand. “Ji Lingchen, you have to remember what you promised me.”
“In your eyes, am I that untrustworthy?” Ji Lingchen asked in return.
“I don’t doubt you. I’m just reminding you in case you forgot.” Fang Xiaonuan withdrew her hand and stepped away from the trunk of the car first.
Beside the car, Fang Xiaonuan saw the familiar figures and smiled sweetly. “Dad, mom, Lingchen and I are here.”
Ji Lingchen went to the trunk to pick up the gifts. When he walked over and saw the expression on Fang Xiaonuan’s face, he was slightly stunned.
So, it turned out that a forced smile could still look so sincere. Ji Lingchen was deeply moved. The exchange of sincere smiles in his family were a luxury, but to her, it was a piece of cake.

Fang Xiaonuan hugged her parents lovingly. Ji Lingchen’s hands were full of gifts as he followed behind her.
“Quickly come inside. It’s hot outside.” Mrs. Fang brought the two of them into the house.
When they were in the living room, Fang Xiaonuan kept saying that her life was very good since joining the Ji family. “Dad, mom, I’ve finally realized the benefits of marrying someone. I’m so free now that I’m married. I can sleep for as long as I want, and Lingchen doesn’t care.”
Ji Lingchen could not respond to her, and it seemed unnecessary. He could only put on a smile to back up Fang Xiaonuan’s words.
In reality, he had not even slept with her on the wedding night.
In order to show her parents that she was really living well, Fang Xiaonuan pretended to be very good and her smile looked very real.
Ji Lingchen felt that he should say something, so he asked, “Dad, mom, where’s Fang Hang?”
Mrs. Fang replied, “His semester isn’t over yet.”
Fang Hang was Fang Xiaonuan’s younger brother. He was sixteen years old and was studying abroad. His family had not told him about his sister’s marriage.
“I heard from Xiaonuan that Fang Hang has always wanted to come back here for his university studies.” Ji Lingchen continued to chat with the Fang family.
Fang Xiaonuan turned and looked at Ji Lingchen with a hint of doubt in her eyes. She had said that?
“That’s true, but the pressure of the National College Entrance Examination is too great. It’s harder here than it is abroad. We don’t want him to come back for the time being,” Mrs. Fang continued.
Her brother wanted to come back for the National College Entrance Examination? Why did she not know about this?

“Nuannuan, stop looking at Lingchen. Don’t you see him enough at home. Come to the kitchen with me.” Mrs. Fang smiled as she brought her daughter to help her cook.
Fang Xiaonuan’s face instantly turned red. “No, I wasn’t.” After saying that, she was dragged away.
Only Ji Lingchen and Fang Dong were left in the living room. They looked at each other, feeling annoyed and awkward. There was nothing much to say about personal matters, so Ji Lingchen took the initiative to ask about official matters.
“Dad, I heard that you’ve rejected quite a few projects in a row. Is it because you don’t have enough funds and materials? If it is, you can tell me.” Ji Lingchen was very puzzled, he looked at Chairman Fang, but he could not understand his thought process at all.
“That’s not the case, Lingchen. You and I both know how these projects came about. Those people just want to curry favor with the Ji family and use the Fang family as a means to an end. To tell you the truth, the Fang family has sufficient funds and raw materials. I won’t accept any of these projects,” Chairman Fang said, he paused and calmly drank some water.
