After a while, Tongtong walked downstairs. He was very happy to see Wen Jianing, but the next second he found his grandmother lying on the sofa, he suddenly stopped in his tracks wondering what had happened.
Wen Jianing waved to him.
He stepped down the stairs with two short legs, ran towards Wen Jianing, then plopped down on the edge of the sofa, and called out nervously, “Grandma?”
The old lady stretched out her hand to touch her grandson’s face and said, “I’m okay, don’t worry.”
Tongtong glanced at Wen Jianing uncertainly.
Wen Jianing said to him, “You go find her something to eat. Don’t let others see it.”
Tongtong nodded and ran towards the kitchen.
Wen Jianing felt a little helpless, and said to the old lady Lu, “Anyway, let’s eat something first. Don’t starve yourself.”
Tongtong went to the kitchen refrigerator and brought some biscuits.
Wen Jianing broke them into small pieces and fed them to the old lady. The old lady was being cautious all the way, afraid that her daughter in law would come down and see it. Tongtong didn’t know what they were doing, but he just found it interesting, and also looked around.
The old lady ate the biscuits and drank some water. She still lay back on the sofa, pretending to be dying.
Wen Jianing hugged Tongtong in his arms and felt a little uncomfortable seeing the old woman toss around for him at such an age.
After a while, Lu Yanyue also got up. She and Kang Huanxian came down the stairs together. When she saw the situation here, she was surprised and said, “What’s wrong?”
Kang Huanxian sighed, not knowing what to say, so she went into the kitchen without saying anything.
The old lady grabbed her granddaughter’s hand and complained.
Soon Lu Yanyue shared a bitter hatred with her grandmother and began to scorn Lu Jinfeng.
Later Kang Huanxian came out of the kitchen and said, “Mom, don’t say it like that, Jinfeng is also doing it for the sake of Jinlang.” Because Wen Jianing was here, it was inconvenient for her to say more.
Wen Jianing didn’t say anything and only smiled at her.
Kang Huanxian seemed to feel a little sorry, and she nodded to him and averted her gaze.
Lu Yanyue still said to her mother, “Mom, it’s wrong for Dad to do this.”
Kang Huanxian said, “Stop talking!”
Wen Jianing suddenly felt embarrassed to be in the middle of the family’s women and children, and suddenly felt uncomfortable when he thought of how Lu Jinfeng positioned him.
But the old lady still insisted on going on a hunger strike. He promised Lu Jinfeng to look after her, and there was no reason to leave now, so he could only sigh silently in his heart.
However, this morning, an unexpected guest appeared in Lu’s family—Lu Jinxin’s ex-wife and Tongtong’s mother, Ye Zhujia, visited unexpectedly.
”Mom!” Tongtong was the first to notice that Ye Zhujia appeared in front of the gate. He got up from the sofa and ran towards Ye Zhujia.
Kang Huanxian was taken aback and stood up from the sofa. The divorce between Lu Jinxin and Ye Zhujia was not very pleasant, so the Lu family felt a little awkward seeing Ye Zhujia. Even the old lady Lu stopped pretending and sat up from the sofa.
Ye Zhujia hugged Tongtong and kissed him hard. Then she took a closer look at him. Her tears were about to flow out and said that he had lost weight.
Old lady Lu was the first to speak in the house. She said, “Second sister in law, why are you here?”
Although Ye Zhujia and the old lady didn’t have a good relationship in the past, it was not that bad. She wiped her eyes and still called out, “Mom.”
The old lady was a little sad when she called her ‘Mom’.
Ye Zhujia said, “Let me take care of Tongtong.”
No one could stop mothers and children who wanted to meet. Kang Huanxian didn’t speak, but only looked at the old lady Lu; Lu Yanyue didn’t even know what to say, after all, she was not in the country when Lu Jinxin and his wife divorced.
Ye Zhujia’s gaze swept across the room, and when she saw Lu Yanyue, she greeted her and said, “When did Xiao Yue come back?”
Lu Yanyue said, “A few days ago.”
Ye Zhujia nodded, and his eyes lingered on Wen Jianing for a while. When she saw that the old lady was still silent, she said in a pleading tone, “Mom, can I take Tongtong out for a day and send him back in the afternoon? I want to talk to him alone.”
The old lady immediately disagreed when she heard this. After all, Ye Zhujia wanted to take Tongtong away before. Now Lu Jinxin was not at home, who dared to let her take the child out alone.
So the old lady shook her head and said, “Second sister in law, this is not so good. At least you have to talk to the second child first.”
Ye Zhujia was very heartbroken. She said, “I won’t take him away, it’s just for a meal.”
The old lady was not used to rejecting people, so she reached out and grabbed Wen Jianing’s sleeve, and asked him to help.
Wen Jianing felt that he was probably the least suitable to speak at this time, but when he saw that the old lady Lu and Kang Huanxian were both soft-hearted, and Lu Yanyue was obviously not clear about the situation, so he had to speak, “Madam, I’m afraid it’s not possible.”
Ye Zhujia looked at him.
Wen Jianing still didn’t know the other party’s name, and couldn’t call her Mrs. Lu or second sister in law, so he could only adopt a safe name.
Ye Zhujia just thought Wen Jianing was familiar, but she didn’t think of who the other person was, let alone the relationship between him and Lu Jinlang. The first reaction was that he was Lu Yanyue’s boyfriend, so he maintained a polite tone and asked, “Who are you?”
Wen Jianing did not rush to explain his identity but just said, “Actually, you should call a Mr. Lu to come over. After all, the court decision had come down. Whether you should visit or not and how you should visit should be discussed between you and Mr. Lu, I am afraid that the people in this house have no right to help Mr. Lu call the shots.”
Ye Zhujia looked agitated, she said, “It has nothing to do with you, right?”
The old lady Lu was afraid that Wen Jianing would be in a difficult situation, so she quickly grabbed Wen Jianing’s arm and said, “I am getting older. Let Xinhang represent me better.”
Ye Zhujia still thought Wen Jianing was Lu Yanyue’s boyfriend. She said, “What happened to him being my own child? I don’t even have the right to take him out for a meal?”
Wen Jianing said, “It’s not that it’s impossible, but we are only entrusted by Mr. Lu to take care of Tongtong, and we don’t have the right to decide for him, so please don’t make it hard for us.”
Ye Zhujia looked at him for a long time.
Kang Huanxian said cautiously at this moment, “Zhu Jia, you know how Jinxin is, right?”
Ye Zhujia took a deep breath and said, “Forget it, I understand, can I say a few words to Tongtong alone?”
To this request, the Lu family would not have the heart to refuse.
Wen Jianing glanced at the old lady, and saw that she nodded repeatedly, so he said to Ye Zhujia, “It’s fine.”
Ye Zhujia squatted down and said to Tongtong, “Let’s go out with mom, and mom will say a few words to you.”
Tongtong rubbed his eyes and nodded.
Ye Zhujia didn’t want the Lu family to hear it, so she took Tongtong’s hand and walked out.
When the two of them went out, Kang Huanxian stepped forward and stared at the outside of the room door, and said, “Zhu Jia suddenly ran over and it scared me.”
The old lady Lu said, “The gatekeeper of the community must have opened the door directly when he saw that it was the second sister in law’s car. Well, she was from a good family.”
Wen Jianing heard the words and walked two steps forward, standing at the door and looking at them.
Ye Zhujia and Tongtong were standing on the lawn outside the door. She was squatting and talking to Tongtong, touching the child’s face with one hand.
Tongtong was a bit emotional and sobbing.
Ye Zhujia hugged her son tightly, turned her head and saw Wen Jianing and the others staring at them at the door of the room. She didn’t seem to be too happy, and said to Tongtong, “Mom bought you a gift and put it in the car. Shall we go and take it?”
Ye Zhujia took Tongtong’s hand and walked towards the parking place outside the lawn.
Wen Jianing noticed that a strange man was sitting in the driver’s seat of that car. He strangely asked Kang Huanxian next to him, “Who is that man?”
Kang Huanxian looked up, and said strangely, “Which one? I don’t know?”
Wen Jianing was instantly on the edge and walked in the direction where they stopped.
Unexpectedly, when Ye Zhujia saw him coming, she immediately carried Tongtong into the car, and then yanked her door.
Wen Jianing raised his foot and ran after them, while shouting loudly, “Call the guard not to let their car go and let the driver drive out to catch up!” He said as he ran towards the car.
The car probably didn’t turn off. Ye Zhujia took Tongtong in the car and drove out immediately.
Wen Jianing could not catch up with the car with his legs, and there was still a long distance from the Lu family to the gate of the community. After he chased for a while, the driver of the Lu family drove over.
He got into the car and told the driver to continue to chase after them.
When they reached the gate of the community, Ye Zhujia and his car were stopped by the guards at the gate.
A big man in the car was arguing with the security guard to let them go. They received a call from Kang Huanxian, saying that there was a thief in the car, so not only did they refuse to let it go but also stopped him to wait for Lu’s family to come over.
Wen Jianing opened the door and gets off.
The gatekeeper of the community had been reluctant to let them go. Ye Zhujia became anxious when she saw Wen Jianing approaching the car. She didn’t even think about it, so she pulled Tongtong’s hand and ran out as she opened the car door.
Tongtong was already frightened, and he was crying constantly. He was being dragged and his steps were unstable. He fell as soon as he got out of the car.
Ye Zhujia picked him up and continued to run out, but how could she run fast as a woman holding a child.
Wen Jianing caught up with her and took her arm, panting slightly and said, “Madam, you are a bit too much, you scared the child.”
Ye Zhujia waved his hand vigorously to shake him away, “What is your business? This is my son! Get lost!”
There was a road outside, with cars coming and going. Wen Jianing saw that Ye Zhujia tried to move backwards, and felt that it was dangerous, so he reached out and wanted to take Tongtong away. He said, “Give me the kid first, OK? Don’t hurt him.”
At this moment, Wen Jianing suddenly felt a pain in his waist, and then he was knocked out by a force and fell into the traffic lane.
A car slammed in front of him, and Wen Jianing even felt the gust of wind when it brakes.
It turned out to be the man who came with Ye Zhujia. When he saw Wen Jianing about to snatch the child from Ye Zhujia’s hand, he stepped forward and kicked Wen Jianing’s waist. If it hadn’t been for the car to brake in time, Wen Jianing might have been hit by the car.
The security guard in the guard room ran out and restrained the man with the driver of the Lu family.
The car driver was also scared, so he touched his head and asked, “Are you all right?”
At this time, Lu Yanyue and Kang Huanxian had already caught up. Lu Yanyue stepped forward to grab the Tongtong from Ye Zhujia’s arms and then stepped back a few steps.
Kang Huanxian let out a shriek when she saw Wen Jianing and quickly came forward to help him.
Wen Jianing reached out to press his waist and stood up with the help of Kang Huanxian.
When she saw that everything had settled, Ye Zhujia squatted on the ground, covered her face and cried bitterly.
The two brothers Lu Jinxin and Lu Jinlang rushed back soon after receiving a call from their mother, but Lu Jinfeng turned off his mobile phone because of a meeting, and he was the last one to hear the news.
The community security called the police.
Lu Jinxin was full of anger to resolve the matter.
Wen Jianing was helped back nervously by the Lu family’s women. He felt that his waist was probably bruised, but the bones should be fine, and the internal organs should not be hurt, so he wasn’t so nervous. But when he raised his head, he saw several women in the Lu family looking at him worriedly.
He froze for a moment, and said, “It’s nothing serious.”
Kang Huanxian said, “Don’t you need to go to the hospital?”
Wen Jianing didn’t want to go to the hospital, so he shook his head.
Soon, Lu Jinlang rushed back. The first sentence he saw Wen Jianing was, “Are you injured?”
Wen Jianing said, “A little injury. It is not serious.”
In fact, the most terrifying thing just now was not that the man kicked him, but that he was almost hit by a car afterwards. When he realised that, Wen Jianing felt a little scared, and his body felt a little weak.
Lu Jinlang walked to him, “Where did it hurt? Let me see.”
Wen Jianing shook his head. It was not that he refused to show Lu Jinlang, but because there were too many people here, it was hard for him to open up his clothes.
Lu Jinlang saw his concerns and stretched out his hand to him, “Let’s go, follow me upstairs.”
Wen Jianing took his hand and stood up. His waist hurt as soon as he moved, and he took a sharp breath.
Lu Jinlang then lightened his movements and asked, “I’ll carry you.”
Wen Jianing naturally refused, and said, “I’m fine.”
Lu Jinlang did not insist, took his hand and slowed down and walked towards the second floor.
He still has a room on the second floor. Although he rarely came back to stay now, the room at home was still reserved for him, and the housekeeper cleaned it every day.
They returned to the room and closed the door. Lu Jinlang asked Wen Jianing to sit on the bed, stretched out his hand to lift his clothes, and saw the bruise on his waist.
Lu Jinlang stretched out his hand and poked it lightly.
Wen Jianing took a breath of pain.
”Does it hurt?” Lu Jinlang asked him.
Wen Jianing said, “Seems like so, don’t poke me.”
Lu Jinlang sat down beside him, suddenly sighed heavily, and said, “I heard that you were almost hit by a car?”
Wen Jianing did not answer. He heard Lu Jinlang’s tone full of worry, even a little scared.
”I’m fine,” he grabbed Lu Jinlang’s hand tightly.
Lu Jinlang didn’t know what to say. He wanted to tell Wen Jianing not to be so impulsive and do what only he could. But today he was trying to prevent people from taking his nephew away. If it weren’t for Wen Jianing, maybe Ye Zhujia would have successfully run away with Tongtong, and Lu Jinxin will have had to go all over the world to find him.
But Wen Jianing was injured, and Lu Jinlang really felt distressed for him.
Wen Jianing got up and stood in front of Lu Jinlang, stretched out his hand to hold his head, let him put his forehead in his arms, and then hugged him tightly.
Lu Jinlang raised his hand to hug him but was afraid of touching the bruise on his waist.
Wen Jianing just suddenly remembered what the old lady Lu said to him today. He knew that Lu Jinlang was worried and nervous, but he didn’t know what he should do to make him completely relieved.
Lu Jinlang said, “I have contacted Dr. Xia and asked him to come and check for you first. If there is no damage to the internal organs and bones, you don’t need to go to the hospital.”
Wen Jianing said, “I’m fine,” but he added, “Okay.”
”Forget it,” Lu Jinlang said suddenly.
”What?” Wen Jianing looked down at him strangely.
Lu Jinlang said to him, “It doesn’t matter whether my eldest brother opposes it or not. If he disagrees, I won’t bring you back here in the future. If he threatened the second brother to let Lei Xing dismiss you. We’ll terminate the contract with Lei Xing. There is nothing that can’t be solved.”
Wen Jianing stretched out his hand and stroked Lu Jinlang’s head, “What’s the matter? Isn’t that too much?”
Lu Jinlang said, “I always want to pursue the best of both worlds, but it is impossible for everything in the world to develop the way I want to. I am afraid that the more I want, the more I will lose by then. I always have to choose something.”
Wen Jianing asked him, “Are you going to abandon your brother?”
Lu Jinlang gently shook his head, “He is still my eldest brother, I just won’t force him to agree.”
Wen Jianing also sighed when he heard this. He hugged Lu Jinlang tighter and said, “Don’t worry, I think your eldest brother is really only hard on the surface but soft-hearted. He is not such an inhuman person.”
Lu Jinlang raised his head and patted his leg, “Come here and let me hug you.”
Wen Jianing sat down on his lap sideways.
Lu Jinlang raised his hand to avoid his waist and hugged him.
Wen Jianing turned his head and kissed Lu Jinlang’s nose.
Lu Jinlang raised his hand to cup his face and then kissed his lips.
Wen Jianing matched his kiss and let out a soft sigh.
After the kiss was over, Lu Jinlang still gently pecked and kissed Wen Jianing’s jaw and neck.
Wen Jianing could feel how much Lu Jinlang cherished him. He grabbed Lu Jinlang’s hand, put it to his lips and kissed it hard.
Later, Xia Yan came over and did a check for him. He said that there shouldn’t be a big problem. If it was convenient, they could rub it with medicinal wine to remove the blood stasis as soon as possible.
So Lu Jinlang gave up the idea of sending Wen Jianing to go to the hospital.
Lu Jinfeng returned as soon as Lu Jinlang sent Xia Yan away.
As soon as he entered the door and saw Wen Jianing and Lu Jinlang standing in the living room, he asked, “Are you okay?”
Wen Jianing said, “I’m fine?”
When Lu Jinfeng heard the words, he nodded a little relieved, and then asked, “Where is Tongtong?”
Kang Huanxian stood up and said, “He fell asleep upstairs. He was so scared today and he was crying until his voice was hoarse.”
Lu Jinfeng sighed heavily, “Zhujia is too ignorant of what she does.”
