Chapter 25: Part 1 — He didn’t want to be troubled and didn’t want anyone to trouble his marriage.
At the birthday banquet, when Lu Yang had seen Su Yan, he was stunned for a few seconds. Truly, Jiang Jingchuan’s missus was the most beautiful woman amongst all the women present. At that time, he couldn’t focus at all. Later he would remember her face whenever someone mentioned Mrs. Jiang, but he felt that she was pretty, that’s all. But now, Su Yan seemed to be different. Lu Yang had met many beautiful girls, but comparing them to her, was like comparing two different species entirely. Lu Yang felt that Mrs. Jiang embodied the word beauty.
Lu Yang was also an ordinary man. The heart always looked for beautiful people. Even if Su Yan’s status didn’t allow any other thoughts, he couldn’t help but steal a few more glances. Soon, he came back to his senses and cursed himself for losing control. After adjusting his expression, he went towards Jiang Jingchuan’s seat with a smile and said politely, “Jingchuan, what a coincidence.”
Jiang Jingchuan and Su Yan simultaneously turned their heads to look at Lu Yang. Jiang Jingchuan stood up and shook hands with Lu Yang: “You are here too?”
Su Yan, who still had the same positive impression as before, followed suit and got up before smiling politely at Lu Yang, “Hello, Mr Lu.”
“I was eating with my friend here when I heard the Manager say that you were also here, I thought to come and say hello. Aren’t I a demon for destroying your candlelight dinner?” In fact, Lu Yang wasn’t that handsome but his gentle temperament earned him a lot of points. It made people feel very comfortable with him.
Su Yan felt that Lu Yang was a bit like the Zhuàngyuán Láng.1From head to toe he had the aura of scholarliness, no aggression at all. But this could be his disguise. Since this was the person who had managed to overtake all of Venerable Sir Chen’s children in the power struggle, she felt that his astute scheming could not be looked down upon.
Jiang Jingchuan laughed at that, “Not at all. Would you like to add a seat?”
People should not take these type of words seriously. Lu Yang quickly waved his hand, “No, I just wanted to say hello then leave.”
In accordance with his words, after saying that to Jiang Jingchuan he immediately left. When he got back to his seat, he didn’t respond to his friend’s questions. After being lost in thought for a while, that man asked: “What is Mrs. Jiang’s background?”
He suddenly felt that he could start with Mrs. Jiang to build a good relationship with Jiang Jingchuan. Lu Yang’s popularity wasn’t bad. Now even all the resources of the Chen Family had been handed down to, his friend, Lu Yang’s hands. He didn’t necessarily need the association with Jiang Jingchuan, but he liked to be completely safe. Even if he didn’t have any business relation with Jiang Jingchuan in the future, it didn’t matter, it would be good enough to become his friend.
The man became startled upon hearing what Lu Yang had to say. He then tried to remember all the news on Mrs. Jiang. He only ended up stammering, “I heard that the two old people of the Jiang Family like her very much. Jiang Jingchuan never accompanied her out, so we couldn’t help but think that she was very ugly.”
If Su Yan looked ugly then most people weren’t good looking.
Lu Yang once again fell into deep thought. He can’t say that he was very close to Jiang Jingchuan but on the whole, he still understood his character. When Lu Yang was living abroad, Jiang Jingchuan was dating someone. At that time, when he would eat with them, Jiang Jingchuan’s attitude to his then girlfriend was completely different from his attitude towards his wife.
Connecting it with Jiang Jingchuan not being even half step away from his wife, Lu Yang thought that Jiang Jingchuan must like his wife very much.
Jiang Jingchuan and Su Yan didn’t stay much longer after they finished eating. He wasn’t experienced in the matters of love at all, so Jiang Jingchuan was wondering what should be done after eating dinner. After a lot of hard thinking he decided on an option which was neither too good nor too bad, “Do you want to go to the movies?”
Su Yan had watched a lot of TV series these days so she knew what going to the movies meant, but she had never gone there. She hesitated a bit before nodding, “Okay.”
Everything was novel to her. She wanted to go ahead and try it, but deep inside she was also afraid to try it. However, since one day she would completely integrate herself into life here, it was better to become familiar early.
Jiang Jingchuan took out his mobile to check and found out that there was a movie hub nearby. It seemed that parking would be troublesome, so he decided to walk there with Su Yan. It was good to take a walk after eating. The two people’s stunning looks attracted many second glances from passersby. They quickly reached the movie hub.
Jiang Jingchuan didn’t notice the fixated stare of the girl at the ticket selling counter and turned to look at Su Yan: “What do you want to see?”
How would Su Yan know what to watch? She just hugged his arm and smiled: “You can decide. I will watch anything.”
The ticket seller girl finally noticed Su Yan. It only took one blow for her to understand. She stopped staring at Jiang Jingchuan at once and resumed her business expression.
No matter how handsome a man is, as long as he can’t be yours, better to keep it all business!
To be on the safe side, Jiang Jingchuan chose an animated movie. This movie’s plot was quite light and fit with the relaxed atmosphere. Basically no mistakes.
Jiang Jingchuan bought Couple tickets. There were still 20 minutes left until the movie’s start. The movie theatre hub had a relaxing lounge but unfortunately it was filled.
“Do you want popcorn and cola?” Jiang Jingchuan asked casually. He wasn’t too fond of eating these but had suddenly recalled that these were quite essential while watching a movie.
Su Yan was filled with curiosity so, naturally, she nodded hastily, “Yes, yes!”
She had seen the people in the dramas go to the movies and eat popcorn and drink cola. It looked really good. She wanted to try it out.
Seeing Su Yan’s child like expression, Jiang Jingchuan couldn’t suppress a smile, “Okay, I will buy it for you.”
The more he came to know Su Yan, the more attracted he became to her. In fact, it was really relaxing to be with Su Yan. Previously, he practically worked all the time. After getting off work he would at most drink with Sui Sheng. Anyway, he wasn’t a very talkative person and couldn’t find anyone to talk with. Besides, he’s used to bearing everything by himself. Now that he was nearing 30, it’s not that he wasn’t without any grievances or unhappiness. When he was in his early twenties he could still pour out his heart to his mom, but he felt embarrassed to do so now. As time passed, he assumed that he didn’t need anyone by his side.
He hardly talked to Su Yan about his work. Naturally, he didn’t have to. He just had to take a meal with her after getting off work, listen to her speak about her day, and do something casual together with her to feel relaxed after a stressful day.
He had no choice but to admit that he was beginning to like this husband and wife life.
Several minutes later, Su Yan was holding a big bucket of popcorn. After eating a few mouthfuls, her eyes widened, “So sweet! I like it.”
In other people’s eyes, this scene was playing out——
An elite handsome man wearing a western suit and leather shoes was holding a large cup of cola, pampering a popcorn eating delicate beauty.
From time to time he would wipe off the small bits of popcorn from the corners of the beauty’s mouth.
