Ji Chen blinked and subconsciously turned his gaze back to Jiang Baiwan. He handed out a check that had just been written. “Take it.”
Jiang Baiwan was at a loss and didn’t know what this was, but seeing that the man seemed very insistent, she still took the check from him, only to hear the man say, “I will only give you 200,000. You must learn to stand on your own feet.”
Ji Chen gave Jiang Baiwan a deep look. “Take care of yourself from now on.”
After that, the car window was raised again and the car started to drive away, leaving Jiang Baiwan standing there alone, holding the groceries and the check, with question marks all over her face.
……Who’s this man?!
After returning home, Jiang Baiwan quickly took out the fish in the bag and threw it into the kitchen sink, and then put away the things she bought one by one. Only then did she have time to look closely at the check.
It’s really two hundred thousand! Jiang Baiwan stared blankly. She didn’t have the excitement of getting 8 million like before. Instead, she was full of doubts—— Who the hell was that man? Why does it appear like he was familiar with her? Moreover, giving out 200,000 in one shot?
The content of that classic romance novel basically revolved around the male and female protagonist, and the supporting characters were all very one-sided. Jiang Baiwan didn’t pay much attention to them. Now that she was thinking about it, in her vague impression, there seemed to be no one who matches the man she met today.
Who was he?
Unfortunately, until Jiang Baiwan went to bed and closed her eyes, she couldn’t find any information about that man from her memory.
Half asleep and half awake, Jiang Baiwan felt as if someone was talking in her ear. The man’s voice was low and magnetic, and it was right in Jiang Baiwan’s ear, making her tremble uncontrollably.
She turned over impatiently, but felt as if she had fallen into an embrace. That embrace was warm and passionate. Jiang Baiwan could barely breathe from the heat coming from the other person’s body. She tried to get out of it, but couldn’t break free.
Who the hell are you? In a daze, Jiang Baiwan cried out in her heart.
However, until she fell into the darkness once again, Jiang Baiwan wasn’t able to get the answer she wanted.
When she woke up the next day, Jiang Baiwan looked at herself in the mirror angrily with her birds nest hair, feeling simply ashamed.
How old was she? How could she still have erotic dreams?! And the most important thing was…… she didn’t even see the face of the man in her dream!
It’s a loss, it’s a loss. Jiang Baiwan thought painfully while brushing her teeth. It’s really a loss.
After washing up, Jiang Baiwan sat on the sofa in the living room. She leaned on the back of the sofa and looked at the snow-white ceiling. She suddenly relaxed. Jiang Baiwan didn’t know what she should do.
Speaking of which, what’s the life of the rich like? Playing golf? Skiing? Buying antiques?
But she only has 8 million. It doesn’t seem to be enough to support her to do these activities……
Jiang Baiwan reached out to touch her stomach, sighed, and looked at the kitchen—— Forget it, make breakfast first, at least rich people would never go hungry.
What Jiang Baiwan didn’t know was that a pair of uninvited guests was coming to her door at that moment.
Outside the gate of the community, a red convertible car parked. A man and a woman were sitting inside. The woman was looking at the sign with complicated eyes. She pulled at the man’s clothes and asked in a small voice, “She…… Does she really live here?”
The man’s expression seemed a little impatient, but when facing the woman, he was very gentle. “That’s right. When we called yesterday, didn’t the person on the other side already made it very clear?”
These two were the protagonists of the novel 《I’ve Been In Love With You For A Thousand Years》, Chu Yunhan and Shui Lan’er.
At present, Shui Lan’er was looking at the man beside her in distress, and whispered, “Yunhan, don’t get angry later, okay? Jiang Baiwan is pitiful enough. We can’t be the kind of people who will kick someone when they’re down.”
Shui Lan’er was a woman like a little white flower. Even if she was sad or lonely, her heart still remained pure and kind. Despite facing Jiang Baiwan who had been bullying her, Shui Lan’er does not hold grudges at all. She even made a special call to Jiang Baiwan’s villa after hearing the news of the Jiang family’s bankruptcy.
But the person in the villa told her that the previous resident had moved out?
Shui Lan’er immediately became worried. When Chu Yunhan came back at night, he saw his girlfriend sitting by the window with her eyes full of tears and her head bowed, looking so sad. Chu Yunhan was immediately distressed. After asking what happened, even though Chu Yunhan dislikes Jiang Baiwan, he still inquired about Jiang Baiwan’s current residence.
Thinking of this, Chu Yunhan’s eyes looking at Shui Lan’er suddenly became gentler—— His Lan’er was so lovely and kind, even to that hateful woman Jiang Baiwan. She never holds grudges.
Lan’er was the purest girl he had ever seen in his life!
Chu Yunhan couldn’t help looking at the gate of the community again—— Why couldn’t Jiang Baiwan, that woman, just disappear from their happy world? If it wasn’t for making Lan’er happy, he wouldn’t have let her go so easily!
Jiang Baiwan was wearing an apron and making breakfast at home. When she was about to turn over the fried egg in the pan, the doorbell suddenly rang.
“Coming, coming!” Jiang Baiwan responded as she turned off the fire in a hurry and went to open the door. “I’m coming!”
When she did so, she saw a man and a woman standing in front of the door. Looking at Jiang Baiwan who was wearing an apron and holding a spatula, the two glanced at each other. Both sides fell into an eerie silence.
In the end, Jiang Baiwan was the first to break the deadlock. She asked cautiously, “……Are you the property management?”
Hey, shouldn’t the property management fee be paid by the landlord?
Hearing this, Chu Yunhan’s face immediately darkened and he wanted to roar at Jiang Baiwan—— He knew that this woman would never change her nature! Always so vicious, he shouldn’t have listened to Lan’ers words and come here!
Shui Lan’er looked at the apron on Jiang Baiwan and the spatula in her hand. Her eyes suddenly turned red. She bit her lip and said in a small voice, “Xiao Wan…… Are you…… Are you living such a hard life now?”
Huh? Jiang Baiwan’s face was full of bewilderment—— Were these two people someone she knew?
“Er, it’s all right……” Jiang Baiwan had no choice but to answer vaguely. “That, do you guys want to come in and sit?”
It doesn’t seem like they came here to seek revenge and Jiang Baiwan couldn’t let people stand at the door the entire time.
After letting the man and woman sit down, Jiang Baiwan ran into the kitchen wielding a spatula and fought with the eggs in the pan. She couldn’t be blamed for her inability to realize who they were. In her subconscious mind, the male and female protagonists would have no time for her and stay far away. How could they especially come at her door?
Shui Lan’er and Chu Yunhan sat side by side in front of the table. They were able to see Jiang Baiwan in the kitchen. Watching her skillfully cooking, the sentimental Shui Lan’er became even sadder.
She whispered to Chu Yunhan, “Yunhan, look at Xiao Wan. How hard her life must have been after her family went bankrupt. I remember that she used to live in that kind of detached villa with a garden, but now she has moved to such a small house like this…… and she even has to cook for herself.”
Shui Lan’er covered her chest, her eyes filled with tears. The more she said, the sadder she became. “She used to eat in Michelin three-star restaurants, and if it wasn’t to her liking, she will just pour it out. Gosh, Yunhan, my heart hurts. Xiao Wan’s life is too pitiful.”
Chu Yunhan quickly put his arms around Shui Lan’er, comforting her in a low voice, “Lan’er, you’re really too kind. Such a woman doesn’t deserve our sympathy at all! If you ask me, we can just leave her some money. It will be our utmost benevolence.”
When they finished, the two raised their heads, only to see Jiang Baiwan standing at the kitchen door with two plates in her hands.
Seeing the two people looking over at her, Jiang Baiwan could only show an awkward but polite smile as she held up the plates in her hands. “……Er…… Do you guys eat fried eggs? I made it myself. Sprinkled with black pepper.”
Shui Lan’er seemed to be truly affected by Jiang Baiwan that she even started to cry. Chu Yunhan on the side suddenly became furious. He pointed at Jiang Baiwan and said, “Jiang Baiwan! Don’t think that you can get our forgiveness just because you’re acting pitiful! Don’t even think about it!”
Jiang Baiwan: “???”
Being pointed at the nose and inexplicably criticized, even someone as cautious as Jiang Baiwan couldn’t help but get angry at this moment. She put the plates down on the table, frowned and unceremoniously said, “Who are you? I kindly invited you to have breakfast, but you’re actually wronging me?”
Go ahead, let’s hurt each other! She, Jiang Baiwan, wasn’t afraid!
Sure enough, the man who looked like a dog seemed to get even angrier. He glared and wanted to say something, but Shui Lan’er on the side grabbed the corner of his clothes.
Shui Lan’er timidly said to Chu Yunhan. “Yunhan, you just promised me.”
After hearing Shui Lan’ers words, Chu Yunhan took a deep breath, which suppressed a bit of the anger in his heart. He said in a deep voice, “Jiang Baiwan, we just came to see how you’re doing today. Since you’re still alive, we won’t bother you.”
With that, Chu Yunhan pulled Shui Lan’ers wrist, wanting to take her away. Jiang Baiwan was reminded by Shui Lan’ers “Yunhan” just now, and immediately guessed the identities of the two people in front of her. “Chu Yunhan!”
Chu Yunhan paused as he looked back at Jiang Baiwan with cold eyes. “What else do you want?”
Before Jiang Baiwan could open her mouth, Chu Yunhan interrupted her. “I’m never going to like you. I already have Lan’er, so no need to say more.”
Jiang Baiwan: “……”
“No, I just want to ask,” Jiang Baiwan scratched the back of her head. “What are you two doing here?”
The male and female protagonists honored her with their presence. They managed to find out her current address and came to her door in a grand manner. No matter how she looks at it, they should be here for something, right?
Shui Lan’er looked like she was about to cry again. Her pair of big eyes was full of tears. She looked at Jiang Baiwan and said softly, “Xiao Wan, don’t be afraid. We won’t make trouble for you. We already know what happened. I…… I don’t know what you think, but I actually still regarded you as a friend.”
Saying that, Shui Lan’er took two steps in front of Jiang Baiwan, reaching out to hold her hand. “Xiao Wan, let’s make up. Let all the unhappiness and sorrow of the past go away with the wind, okay? All the mistakes are no more. As long as you ask, I will do my best to help you.”
Jiang Baiwan recieved Chu Yunhan’s scorching eyes that could kill people. She subconsciously took a step back to avoid Shui Lan’er and gave a dry laugh. But before she had time to speak, she saw Shui Lan’ers hand that was originally holding the back of the chair suddenly retracted as she let out a small cry of pain.
“Lan’er, Lan’er, what happened?!” Chu Yunhan immediately took Shui Lan’ers hand, and after inspecting it, he said anxiously, “Why is it bleeding? Did Jiang Baiwan hurt you again?” Saying that, Chu Yunhan even found time to glare at Jiang Baiwan.
Jiang Baiwan: “……” A person sitting in her own house has to take the blame for what she didn’t do.
“Yunhan, Yunhan, don’t be like this,” Shui Lan’er whimpered. “I was just accidentally stabbed by a wooden thorn on the back of the chair. You don’t have to worry about me.”
“But seeing you bleed makes my heart bleed too.” Chu Yunhan looked at Shui Lan’er with deep affection. “You’re my treasure and I hate for you to be hurt.”
As he said that, Chu Yunhan took Shui Lan’er into his arms and intended to leave without even throwing Jiang Baiwan, who was on the side, a glance.
Jiang Baiwan curled her lips. Knowing that these two people’s brains weren’t working, she didn’t bother to argue with them. It’s just that Chu Yunhan stood at the door for a long time without going out. Jiang Baiwan thought it was strange and asked, “What? Still waiting for me to see you off?”
Chu Yunhan who was holding Shui Lan’er turned around. He still didn’t show a good face in front of Jiang Baiwan, but he looked a tad bit unnatural. “……Open the door for me.”
Jiang Baiwan: “……”
