When Lu Jinlang came back that day, it was already quite late. Wen Jianing waited in the living room for Lu Jinlang until he finished his bath before going back to bed.
Wen Jianing sat with his back against the head of the bed. Lu Jinlang took his hand and said, “What’s the matter? Why are you unhappy?”
Wen Jianing asked him, “What did your brother say?”
Lu Jinlang said, “What do you think he would say?”
Wen Jianing actually knew the result a long time ago, he said, “There must be no agreement.”
Lu Jinlang held his hand tightly and said, “Do you know what my eldest brother said to me today?”
Wen Jianing shook his head, but then said, “He knew that he was forcing me to make a choice. He was not happy that I put this matter aside and ignored him.”
Lu Jinlang smiled, “You know him quite well.”
Wen Jianing said, “Because I can think about it from his perspective.”
Lu Jinlang sighed, “It’s a pity that he can’t think of it from your point of view.”
Wen Jianing was silent.
Lu Jinlang raised his hand on the back of his neck and squeezed it lightly.
Wen Jianing turned to look at him.
Lu Jinlang said, “Don’t worry so much. My eldest brother has a problem, that is, his mouth is hard but his heart is soft. My mother knows about this and has already started quarrelling with him at home.”
Wen Jianing heard the words, worried, “How did she know?” He didn’t hope that the final resolution to this matter was due to the quarrel between the old lady Lu and his son.
Lu Jinlang said, “Who can hide from her? I can’t do anything today and I just kept eavesdropping outside of my eldest brother’s study all day long.”
Wen Jianing felt that he could imagine that scene.
Lu Jinlang hugged him and said, “Jianing.”
He usually didn’t call him Jianing very much, and sometimes he still habitually called him Xinhang. For Wen Jianing, he was so used to hearing people call him Xinhang. It didn’t matter what Lu Jinlang called him.
But occasionally when he heard the word, Wen Jianing would still feel touched, as if Lu Jinlang was holding a soft feather and gently tickled him in the heart.
Lu Jinlang said in his ear, “Persevere in what you do, don’t think about giving up, let me solve the troubles of my family.”
Wen Jianing raised his hand to cover the back of Lu Jinlang’s hand. He didn’t know since when, but Lu Jinlang has been using actions to tell him: Don’t worry, I’m here. He knew that he had become more and more dependent on Lu Jinlang. At first, it was because of his lack of confidence in this body, but now it had become a habit.
Although Lu Jinlang said it was a problem of his family, when two people were together, no one should have to face the trouble alone. Wen Jianing had no intention of avoiding this.
Wen Jianing got up early the next morning.
Lu Jinlang woke up and asked him, “Where are you going so early?”
Wen Jianing bent over and kissed him on the forehead, and said, “You can sleep for a while, I have something to do with Ting jie.”
Lu Jinlang looked at him with questions in his eyes.
Wen Jianing smiled and stretched out his hand to cover his eyes, and said, “Go to sleep.”
Lu Jinlang smiled, and finally let him go.
Lu Jinfeng went to work in the morning. The driver had just left the villa area and was about to turn into the road in front. He saw a young man standing on the side of the road.
Wen Jianing originally put his hands in his pockets, and when he saw his car driving by, he reached out and knocked on the window politely.
The driver stopped the car.
Lu Jinfeng pressed down the car window and said, “Are you waiting for me?”
Wen Jianing nodded.
Lu Jinfeng asked him, “Why did you choose this time?”
Wen Jianing said, “Because it is inconvenient to go to your workplace to disturb you. I don’t have your mobile phone number, and I want to see you alone. That’s all.”
Lu Jinfeng was silent for a while, and said to the driver, “Open the door and let him get in the car.”
Wen Jianing pulled the car door and sat in, rubbing his hands that were somewhat frozen in the morning. It rained twice in the past two days, and the temperature was gradually dropping. It was fine during the day, but the temperature difference between morning and evening was a bit substantial. Wen Jianing seldom went out so early. He got out of the taxi and waited for a long time by the side of the road, only to realize that he was wearing so lightly.
The reason why he came to wait for Lu Jinfeng at this time is that he wanted to show some sincerity and impress him. Lu Jinlang said that Lu Jinfeng was soft-hearted, and he wanted to try if it was true.
Lu Jinfeng watched him rub his hands, and was silent for a moment. He then asked the driver to turn on the heater in the car.
Wen Jianing put his hand to his mouth and let out a sigh of relief to conceal his smile.
Lu Jinfeng asked the driver to continue driving, and then asked Wen Jianing, “What do you want to say?”
Wen Jianing said, “Second brother came to the company yesterday and said that eldest brother had asked to stop all my work.” He somewhat understood Lu Jinfeng’s character, and how to behave in front of him.
Lu Jinfeng did not have any objection to his overly intimate address, but said, “I said, either follow through and separate from Jinlang or stop working and stay at home.”
Wen Jianing said, “What do I do when I stay at home? We can’t have any children. It’s not possible for me to stay at home all the time or window shopping to beautify myself or work out every day, right?”
Lu Jinfeng glanced at him, “You can find a way to have a child.”
Wen Jianing was slightly startled when he heard the words, but he didn’t expect Lu Jinfeng to have this idea.
However, Lu Jinfeng didn’t say it deeply, but said, “You have not responded to me for a long time. I don’t think you intend to separate from Jinlang. It’s time you make a choice.”
”Why?” Wen Jianing was actually really puzzled, “I don’t think that the fact that I am working has any effect on our relationship. I don’t want to be good for nothing and just rely on Jinlang to keep me.”
Lu Jinfeng said in a deep voice, “The entertainment industry is too messy.”
Wen Jianing suddenly understood what Lu Jinfeng was thinking. Even if he was a woman and could become a legal husband and wife with Lu Jinlang, Lu Jinfeng probably wouldn’t agree to let him continue to stay in the entertainment industry.
Because Wen Jianing was silent for a short time, Lu Jinfeng continued, “I hope you’ll be able to be a little more stable just by being together.”
Knowing Lu Jinfeng’s thoughts, Wen Jianing couldn’t find words to refute him for a while. He had no other way to prove it except to show Lu Jinfeng his sincerity. Or maybe he should rush to Lu Jinfeng and shout: You are not fair, why can your brother stay in the entertainment industry, but I can’t? But yelling like this is not good for solving the problem. Because he was Lu Jinlang’s brother, of course, he was partial to Lu Jinlang.
If his big brother were here, he might have hit Lu Jinfeng with a punch at this time, then spit out and said: You can go to hell!
But Wen Jianing could only imagine it.
After a while, Wen Jianing said, “Even if it is not a couple in the entertainment industry, who can guarantee that they will never change their minds?”
Lu Jinfeng said, “With less temptation, the possibility decreases.” After a while, he added, “You are still too young.”
He thought he was too young to withstand the temptation. But if Lu Jinfeng knew that he was Wen Jianing and not Ke Xinhang, he might not think so.
Both people in the car fell silent for a while.
Lu Jinfeng saw Wen Jianing not speaking, and thought that he had accepted the current arrangement. He just wanted to ask the driver to send him back after a while, when his mobile phone suddenly rang.
He took out the phone, Lu Jinfeng saw that his wife was calling, and he suddenly had a bad feeling in his heart.
As soon as he answered the phone, he heard Kang Huanxian say over there, “Mom refused to eat breakfast and said she was going on a hunger strike. What should I do?”
Lu Jinfeng closed his eyes and exhaled deeply.
No one would take the old lady Lu’s temper tantrums seriously, but even if he knew she was doing it for herself, Lu Jinfeng had no choice but to compromise with her
He covered the phone with his hand and asked the driver about his itinerary today. After knowing that there were no arrangements for the morning, he asked the driver to call for him to take a leave of absence, and then said to his wife, “I’ll be back soon.”
Wen Jianing didn’t know what had happened at this time and looked at him blankly.
Lu Jinfeng didn’t lose his temper with Wen Jianing either, and only said, “You help me go back and persuade mom.”
”Xiao He?” Wen Jianing was taken aback. When he saw Lu Jinfeng glaring at him, he immediately changed his words, “What’s wrong with Auntie?”
Lu Jinfeng took a deep breath and said, “Hunger strike.”
When he returned home, Wen Jianing followed Lu Jinfeng into the house and found the old lady Lu lying straight on the sofa, opening her eyes and looking at the ceiling of the roof.
Kang Huanxian persuaded her for a while until she could no longer persuade her, and she gave up to continue doing her own thing.
Lu Yanyue and Tongtong were still asleep upstairs and had not gotten up.
Lu Jinfeng walked to the sofa and knelt down in two steps, and said, “Mom? What the hell are you doing?”
The old lady stared at the ceiling without looking at him, and said, “I don’t want to live anymore, you leave me alone.”
Lu Jinfeng’s head hurt, and he said, “Can’t you say something well?”
The old lady said, “Did you tell your brother properly?”
Lu Jinfeng rubbed his forehead, turned his head to look at Wen Jianing, and gave him a wink to come over to persuade her.
Wen Jianing walked over, put his hands under his knees, and bent over to look at the old lady, “Xiao He? Why don’t you have breakfast?”
When the old lady saw him, she looked excited, but then she quickly reverted back, and dragged her voice and said, “What to eat… Some people have their own wives and daughters, so they don’t care whether their brother lives or dies.”
Lu Jinfeng said helplessly, “Mom, are you talking about me? I have no objection to them being together now.”
The old lady said, “But you don’t let Xinhang act! I have lived my whole life, and now I don’t have much hope. I like to watch Xinhang act in two movies. If you don’t let him act, you are making me unable to watch it!”
Lu Jinfeng said, “Nowadays there are more TV shows outside…”
”I’m not watching!” The old lady interrupted him, “I don’t watch anyone who isn’t Xinhang.” After that, she closed her eyes, “Just leave me alone, let me wait for my death.”
Lu Jinfeng stood up, raised his hand and ruffled his hair vigorously.
At this time, he suddenly answered the phone and said that there was a temporary emergency meeting, so he should rush over now. He really had no choice but to ask Kang Huanxian to persuade her mother to eat, and then said to Wen Jianing, “You stay with her and I’ll talk about it when I come back this afternoon.”
Wen Jianing nodded, “Don’t worry, I will look after Auntie.”
Lu Jinfeng seemed to think he was too well behaved, and he more or less felt sorry. He said, “Let’s talk about it later.” Then he hurried out.
After Lu Jinfeng left, Kang Huanxian came to persuade her. The old lady still ignored her. She had no choice. After a while, she went upstairs to wake her daughter up.
Wen Jianing and the old lady Lu are left in the living room.
Wen Jianing saw the old lady winking at him.
He was a little bit dumbfounded, and persuaded, “Don’t joke about your health, let’s get up for breakfast.”
The old lady said, “If I don’t eat, the eldest brother will not be obedient. I just want him to agree with the others before eating.”
Wen Jianing didn’t know what to do. To be honest, he was very grateful to the old lady Lu for doing these things for him, but he really didn’t want to see the other person doing this kind of physical harm when she was already so old.
The old lady seemed to see what he was thinking, and whispered, “Since there are always sacrifices and compromises in this matter, then I will sacrifice and the eldest will compromise. It is not easy for you to be with the third child. Just relaxed.”
Wen Jianing was surprised, so he looked at the old lady Lu, “Do you know what happened before us?”
The old lady said, “The third child said something to the eldest. In fact, he was actually nervous and scared. He felt that you would not give up acting, and he was afraid that you would give up on him.”
Wen Jianing was stunned when he heard the words. He didn’t even notice that Lu Jinlang was worried about this. He thought they knew each other’s minds sufficiently.
The author has something to say:

Thank you so much for your hard work!Ｏ(≧▽≦)Ｏ
I’m surprised that after all this time, Lu Jinfeng is the first one to mention that they can have children… though it looks like Wen Jianing and Lu Jinlang never even considered having children. They have so much money, adopting or surrogacy definitely wouldn’t be an issue.
Yep they can adopt♥️ And Xiao He is the heavy hitter for their team 💪 Ningning has to work harder to relieve Langlangs insecurity 🥺
Thanks for the chapter 🙏
