Chapter 222: It’s Not The Way Home
Almost an hour later, Jiang Xuecheng finally returned home.
The door was suddenly pushed opened. Su Wan’s eyes flashed and she stood up immediately.
“Xuecheng, how’s the test result?”
Jiang Xuecheng’s handsome face was gloomy. He looked at Su Wan with his cold face and his lips moved slightly but he did not speak.
Su Wan was stunned and knew what Lin Fei’er said was true when Jiang Xuecheng remained silent.
Lin Fei’er, who was lying on the bed, darted a side glance at Jiang Xuecheng. A trace of scorn flashed in her dark eyes.
“Why, are you afraid to tell Wan? Since you said you want to protect Wan, how could you allow others to harm her using such a wicked trick?”
Before Lin Fei’er’s voice died down, there was a sense of anger in the intensive care unit.
Su Wan’s chest tightened when her best friend gave Jiang Xuecheng tit for tat.
While she shook her head quickly, she seized Lin Fei’er’s hand, signaling for her to stop. Su Wan knew Lin Fei’er took this matter to heart because she had gone through such an experience.
“Xuecheng has nothing to do with this. Sheng An’ning’s usage of this tactic is not something we could’ve expected.”
Lin Fei’er stared steadily at Su Wan and sighed, “Wan, don’t be silly. His little childhood friend wouldn’t harm you if she didn’t like him.”
Su Wan froze upon hearing this. She frowned slightly and turned around to look at Jiang Xuecheng.
Suddenly, Su Wan’s eyes met his deep and bottomless eyes. Su Wan could sense that Jiang Xuecheng’s current emotions were not quite right too.
Jiang Xuecheng’s eyes moved. His eyes landed on Su Wan and his voice was extremely cold.
“I’ll give Wan Wan an account of this matter. Let’s go, Wan Wan.”
Su Wan was stupefied and walked toward Jiang Xuecheng immediately. Feeling a little embarrassed, she waved at Lin Fei’er and said, “Thank you, Fei’er. We’ll make a move first. Have a smooth discharge tomorrow!”
Lin Fei’er looked at Su Wan quietly. Then, she looked at the man beside her and with a voice of unconcealed warning, she said, “Jiang Xuecheng, I hope you’ll remember your promise to Su Wan. If you let her down one day, I’ll be the first who won’t let you go.”
Jiang Xuecheng narrowed his eyes. Flashes of light appeared in his eyes. His thin lips were pursed and his voice was as calm and cold as ever.
“Wan Wan is my wife. I’ll take good care of her.”
After throwing out this sentence, Jiang Xuecheng brought Su Wan out of Zhao Hua Hospital quickly.
Su Wan sat in the Koenigsegg Agera R. Her eyes landed on Jiang Xuecheng’s hands on the steering wheel. After Jiang Xuecheng drove out of Zhao Hua Hospital, he did not utter a single word.
Under the dim lights of the street lamps, Jiang Xuecheng was calm but Su Wan could feel his surge of emotions.
Su Wan bit her lips and finally spoke. “Xuecheng, what are the ingredients in that perfume?”
Jiang Xuecheng turned his head to the side and his eyes swept across Su Wan’s nervous face. His thin lips were pursed slightly and he recollected the confused thoughts in his mind.
“Besides the overdose of natural musk, there are some other harmful ingredients. Wan Wan, you just have to know that what Lin Fei’er said was not wrong.”
Jiang Xuecheng’s clear voice sounded in Su Wan’s ears and gradually penetrated into her heart.
Su Wan suddenly fell into a trance. She held up the bluish-purple bottle and there was a surge of emotions in her heart. An unsuppressed coldness appeared on her back.
She and Sheng An’ning only met for the first time. How strong was Sheng An’ning’s hatred to have her do such a vicious thing to her?
Su Wan was just about to say something when she saw the road sign outside the car window. Her heart suddenly stopped.
This was not the way home!
Did Jiang Xuecheng want to bring her to the Jiang old mansion to have a face to face confrontation with Sheng An’ning?
Su Wan took a deep breath. The biting night wind blew and her dizzy mind was suddenly clear.
“Xuecheng, keep calm. It’s late now. No matter what, what do you want your grandparents and parents to do if we were to go to the old mansion suddenly?”
Today was the first day of Jiang Haoxuan and Sheng An’ning’s return. Su Wan recalled Luo Xiuxiu’s joyous look and couldn’t bear disturbing her good mood.
Hearing Su Wan’s anxious voice, Jiang Xuecheng’s eyes swept to face her and there was a dim light in his cold eyes.
“Wan Wan, you’re too kind.”
As Jiang Xuecheng spoke, he drove the car toward the old mansion.
There was a trace of anger in the cold voice of Jiang Xuecheng. Su Wan’s expression changed and knew she could not change his decision.
She was not Mother Mary and would not treat the incident of poisonous perfume as if it had never happened.
However, Su Wan felt this could be done in a more decent way. At least, they could do it in the absence of the seniors to prevent them from getting worried.
Su Wan’s heart couldn’t help tightening. She was now in a dilemma. If they were really going to the Jiang old mansion, she was not afraid to confront Sheng An’ning face to face, but she did not know how to face Luo Xiuxiu.
Su Wan liked the kind grandmother who was warm. She knew Luo Xiuxiu genuinely liked her too and hoped everyone in the family could live harmoniously.
Jiang Xuecheng’s existence was subtle in this family, so Su Wan didn’t want to add more to his plate.
Just as Su Wan was sighing, Jiang Xuecheng had taken a turn into another street and arrived at the area where the Jiang old mansion was situated.
The security guard on duty knew Jiang Xuecheng. He removed the roadblock and nodded respectfully.
“Hello, Master Jiang, why are you here so late?”
Jiang Xuecheng nodded slightly but did not speak. He drove his car straight in.
When Jiang Xuecheng parked his car, Su Wan was still at a loss. She touched her brows awkwardly and didn’t wish to think further.
Just when Su Wan was worried, Jiang Xuecheng opened the co-driver’s door. He unbuckled the seat belt for Su Wan and saw her reluctant look.
He snatched Su Wan’s perfume bottle and with a cold voice, said, “If you don’t wish to go in, you may wait in the car. I’ll go in.”
When she heard the cold voice from above, Su Wan’s body trembled.
How could she let Jiang Xuecheng go in alone? Based on his cold way of handling matters, she was afraid that his relationship with his family would become tenser!
Su Wan stood up immediately and accidentally knocked Jiang Xuecheng’s chin.
Su Wan blushed and apologized as she met his deep and unpredictable eyes. “I’m sorry.”
Just when Su Wan was going to get down from the car, she was caught off guard when the man came nearer to her and placed a gentle kiss on her forehead.
