Chapter 165: A Feeling of Home
Translator: Henyee Translations Editor: Henyee Translations
Jing Yichen wasn’t much satisfied with what he extracted from Jing Yiran’s phone in Mu Qing’s office.
What he wanted was more than proof, he wanted the man!
The man in the recording was none other than Black Wind whom Jing Yichen had been seeking for the past half a year!
When he had gone to Black-and-red Association to seek Black Wind earlier, Mu Qing was with him and had put the needles into Black Wind. That’s why he found Black Wind’s voice familiar.
Jing Yichen had looked for Black Wind for so long, thoroughly across the entire A City, both in legal and illegal way, but had still failed to find even his trace.
Because it had been Jing Yiran who had hidden this man.
No wonder he couldn’t find Black Wind, because it was Jing Yiran who had been his rival.
Just as he was familiar with Jing Yiran, Jing Yiran was quite familiar with him. He understood his power and it was quite easy to get away from his sight.
The woman in the recording was Shangguan Rouxue!
So basically, it was Shangguan Rouxue who tried to ruin Shangguan Ning with Guo Shuai’s help last winter.
No wonder Guo Shuai and Black Wind both said that it was Shangguan Zheng who was behind all of these. It had been Shangguan Rouxue who had done the trick.
When Jing Yichen thought of what happened to Shangguan Ning back then, his heart felt like a volcano that was about to erupt.
He had never intended to let this couple live peacefully but now he would make them suffer so much that they would wish that they could die.
In order to prevent Jing Yiran’s phone from tracking his, Jing Yichen didn’t take away his phone. Instead, he took the trouble to transfer every encrypted file from his phone to his own.
Valuable as Jing Yiran’s files were, yet he knew more about Jing Yiran.
He had not killed Jing Yiran till now not because he had been merciful, but because Jing Zhongxiu interfered.
Every time he came to the edge of killing Jing Yiran, Jing Zhongxiu would come up and stop him, so that Jing Yiran got a breather and recovered with the help of Jing Zhongxiu.
Jing Zhongxiu had been trying hard to keep the balance between the two brothers so that neither would be much weaker or much stronger than the other.
Therefore, Jing Yichen had always been quite cold to him, and would not even be bothered to call him “father”.
He had hated Zhang Rong to the bones and he naturally didn’t like Jing Yiran. But Jing Zhongxiu kept defending the two of them. Therefore, he never thought that father favored him, and that the reason why Jingsheng Enterprise was handed over him to was only because Jing Yiran wasn’t suitable to run Jingsheng.
Because of Jing Zhongxiu’s interference, Jing Yiran became increasingly proud whilst Jing Yichen failed to control him enough.
If Jing Yiran had not laid eyes upon Shangguan Ning, he would not have swept off Jing Yiran’s power so tremendously this time.
After Jing Yichen finished with the file transference, he and Tiger left the hospital.
He understood clearly that Jing Yiran would not spill the whereabouts of Black Wind, so it was useless to stay in the hospital.
It would be much easier to find Black Wind now he had the direction!
Also, it had been worth the while to know who was behind the plan.
After Jing Yichen arrived home, Shangguan Ning was helping with food making – she was instructing the chefs and the servants to cook the food, because what she could do was to cook some noodles and nothing else.
It was lively at home and the scent of dishes came out of the kitchen. It was a happy scene.
Shangguan Ning’s crispy voice arose in the kitchen, making Jing Yichen’s cold heart become gentle and warm.
“Sister Fang, take this bone soup over there, and make sure to not let it get burnt. Keep the lid and don’t let it become cold. It would take a while for Yichen to return.”
“Uncle Du, don’t put coriander into the soy sauce mushroom, Yichen doesn’t like coriander. Don’t mind me, I think it is okay without coriander too.”
“Sister Lan, the cherries are so fresh and sweet today, Yichen will definitely love them! Buy more tomorrow.”
She had been busy nagging and instructing, totally unaware of Jing Yichen who was watching her, leaning against the door for some time now.
This was the feeling of home, lively and vivid, full of people and love, unlike the villa he used to live in, empty and isolated.
More importantly, the woman he loved deeply and who loved him back, was here.
Sister Lan and Sister Fang discovered Jing Yichen suddenly. He waved them to leave, and they tiptoed away.
Uncle Du was still working the mushrooms in the kitchen when Shangguan Ning was suddenly caught by a pair of strong arms as soon as she entered the dining room.
She was so surprised that she almost dropped the cherries to the floor.
She let out a sigh of relief at the sight of Jing Yichen. Then she said in an accusing tone. “You startled me! Why were you so quiet?”
Seeing her lovely face warm with exertion, Jing Yichen felt excitement rise up in him and he kissed upon her red lips.
Shangguan Ning immediately pushed him away and said in a shy tone, flushing. “What are you doing! Someone is here!”
“Both Sister Fang and Sister Lan are gone, and Uncle Du is in the kitchen, totally invisible to us. What are you afraid of? I can’t kiss you outside or at home, what position do I have as a husband?” Jing Yichen said smilingly, as he pinched her beautiful nose.
Shangguan scanned the kitchen and didn’t find Sister Lan and Sister Fang. She pursed, “You will do the dishes later since you asked them to leave. I will just be in charge of eating!”
“Aha, did I marry a food lover? But why haven’t you got any fatter after eating so much?” Jing Yichen patted Shangguan Ning’s rounded butt, in a flirtatious manner.
Shangguan Ning instantly flushed and stuffed a cherry into his mouth. “You are getting more and more unruly! Get yourself gagged with this cherry!”
Jing Yichen ate the cherry as he leaned down to kiss her smooth forehead. Uncle Du had just finished cooking when he carried the plate in and ran into the young couple flirting with each other. He put down the dish directly and said smilingly, “Ah, I am too old to see anything!”
Shangguan Ning got extremely shy and flushed. But Jing Yichen behaved as if nothing had happened. “Thank you for your work, Uncle Du, you can go home now, or Ning wouldn’t allow me to touch her with people here.”
Old Du was in his 50s and a specially hired cook at Family Jing. His cooking skills were excellent and he had been cooking for Jing Yichen since he was little, so that Jing Yichen got very particular about food and never wanted to eat anyone else’s food. So after Jing Yichen moved here, Old Du came with him. He lived at Family Jing when he was not cooking.
Hearing what Jing Yichen said, he unbuttoned his apron and walked away happily. He had watched Jing Yichen grow up and regarded him as his child. He was glad that he had started a family and got his own home and a wife who took care of him.
