Translated by: Cherry
T/N: Hello!! So so sorry, but I’ll have to upload half a chapter a week until my semester is over… Which will be in a month! I have too many things going on right now to translate more chapters… But we’re almost at the end though! So sorry about the delay AGAIN, trust me I really do want to finish everything up but life y’know? Thank you all for being patient!
When He Jin heard Yisheng’s answers, his eyes suddenly dimmed. He tried his best to smile, “I’ll attend your wedding and take the chance to get to know the groom, to see who was so unfortunate to have married you.”
Yisheng puffed up her cheeks, “Your mouth is still so poisonous.”
“Haha,” He Jin smiled lightly, picking up the cup in his hand and taking a sip from it. His eyes seemed to be covered by a fog, which made him seem elusive.
“Actually, you know the groom.”
He Jin froze and slightly raised his gaze, raising his eyebrow. He looked at Yisheng with a meaningful look. Yisheng had a very calm expression, and she calmly picked up her cup and took a sip of red tea, “He’s Song Anchen.”
What Yisheng had expected to happen did not happen. She thought that He Jin would be shocked before mocking her. But he was too calm and he continued to pick up the cup and move it to his mouth. His tone was calm as he said faintly, “The two of you are finally together? That must have been difficult.”
This shocked Yisheng. With He Jin’s personality, he would definitely laugh and scold her for getting back together with someone she ended things with. But the moment he heard they had gotten together, he did not have any emotions, instead, it was like he had heard something very normal.
He Jin said, “Is Song Anchen still the same as he was in the past? Is he still the warm prince that was high up above everyone else?”
Yisheng smiled and said, “He hasn’t changed much in terms of looks, it’s just that…” Yisheng felt that Song Anchen was becoming more and more sinister. In the past, she had not been able to read him well, but she would at least be able to read some signs. But now, she was always in panic and could not read him no matter what.
He Jin raised his eyebrows, waiting for Yisheng to finish speaking.
“I can’t read him,” Yisheng held herself back for a long time and only said those five words, but those five words were truly what she felt about Song Anchen.
He Jin hummed, then said extremely sarcastically, “Who can you read?”
Yisheng was stunned.
He Jin placed his hand on his forehead and laughed, seeming a little amused. He was very apologetic for his words, “Actually, you don’t need to see through him, you just need to know if he loves you. If you see through him too well, it might not be a good thing.”
Yisheng lowered her head. She felt that Song Anchen probably liked her, but she was unsure because he had never told her before that he loved her. She was not the kind of person that dared to assume things. She even felt that their marriage was him taking responsibility.
The two of them did not stay too long in the revolving restaurant for very long. Only an hour later, the two of them went down. He Jin insisted on sending Yisheng back and Yisheng agreed. In high school, Yisheng knew that He Jin was rich and his parents were overseas. As soon as he graduated, he migrated overseas to take his MBA. Now, he was the legal representative of the largest investment project in City A, the boss of Rui Li Corporation. Yisheng could not help but smile, how could she have known that the rascal from school would become so successful?
When she sat on the Maybach, Yisheng asked, “Why did you return to China?”
“My father wanted to return to China for investment, but the French side was keeping him there, so he had me come to China, but I’m not staying for a long time,” He Jin stared forward, an unwarranted depth in his eyes. His expression was also quite indifferent. This made Yisheng feel that time was truly something magical. Why did all the men she knew suddenly become so good at hiding their emotions?
“Why aren’t you staying for long?” Yisheng casually asked.
“There’s no reason for me to continue staying in China,” He Jin’s fleeting smile stunned Yisheng. He Jin hesitated for a moment, before he suddenly asked, “Yisheng.”
“Hm?” Yisheng turned her face to the side to look at him.
“Back then… help me tell Song Anchen that I let him down.”
Yisheng smiled and said, “What did you do?”
“If it wasn’t for me, that wouldn’t have happened to Lin Ruohan, causing his family to fall apart. Of course, the person I’m most apologetic to is Lin Ruohan,” He Jin smiled, full of helplessness. His two hands that were holding the steering wheel were trembling. When Yisheng saw this, she felt her chest tighten for some reason, she had thought of something unpleasant.
He Jin sent Yisheng to her block and took a look around Ling Tian Estate. He smiled and said, “As expected of the best residential estate in this city.”
“Come up and take a seat next time,” Yisheng smiled at him.
“Why not today?” He Jin smiled teasingly as if waiting for Yisheng to feel awkward. As expected, Yisheng blushed and muttered, “It’s already late at night, it won’t be good for you to come up.”
“You’re scared of Song Anchen catching you?” He Jin nodded his head in understanding, “That fellow is a jealous person. He might do even crazier things than he did in high school.”
Yisheng was stunned for a moment. In her memory, Song Anchen and He Jin barely had any interactions. What did he mean by what Song Anchen did in high school?
“What happened in high school?” Yisheng asked curiously, but it was obvious that it was a slip of the tongue and he immediately turned silent, changing the topic, “I’ll visit you another day. You can go up, I’ll return home.”
Yisheng saw that he did not want to talk about the matter and did not continue asking. She watched him leave, but she was still curious. What exactly happened between Song Anchen and He Jin?
That night, Yisheng wanted to wait for Song Anchen to return home, but she fell asleep. When she woke up, she saw that Song Anchen was already beside her pillow. His appearance was always pleasing and made her heart beat faster. Sometimes, Yisheng felt like she was dreaming, having such a man.
She wanted to hide him somewhere a long time ago, to keep him to herself. When she returned, it felt like she had been dreaming for a very long time, and her dream came true. The man by her pillow was the one that she had been dreaming of for so long. She could not help raising a hand to touch his face. The corner of her lips turned upwards, this man was hers. She could keep him to herself, and touch him when she wanted to, look at him when she wanted to. In the past, something that she had always longed for, she could now do publicly. Her one-sided feelings had borne fruit.
She was enjoying the moment, but she was too emotional and it affected Song Anchen, who was in a deep sleep. He could not help but frown and moved a little. Yisheng was shocked and stared at him in fear that he would wake up. But in the end, Song Anchen finally opened his eyes. As soon as he opened his eyes, he saw Yisheng looking at him with big eyes, blinking at him. It was like he was originally a cloth doll that had suddenly come alive.
