I Want a Lifetime with You Chapter 142

Even though Shi Jingzheng was taken aback, he still controlled his emotions for the special occasion. At the same time, he recalled that Fu Chengyan had come over to send a birthday gift to the old man during his birthday. Now that he mentioned playing chess with the old man, they must have been meeting up on their own.

The more he thought, he concluded that his father and Fu Chengyan must be friends. However, while the old man had been going out a lot recently, he never mentioned this to him at all.

Shi Jingzheng sized up Fu Chengyan and said, “My father is resting inside. Would you like to have a chat with him?”

Fu Chengyan nodded, “I’ll excuse myself then!”

From the moment he stepped into the venue, Fu Chengyan had not acknowledged Fu Yuqing at all. He merely glanced at Zhou Zheng before leaving. Zhou Zheng then handed a gift box to Shi Jingzheng. “This is Master Chengyan’s wedding gift to Ms. Shi and Mr. Fu.”

“Oh, thank you, Mr. Fu!” With one look, someone immediately stepped forward to help Shi Jingzheng with the gift.

Fu Yuqing stared at Fu Chengyan and Zhou Zheng’s back view grimly with his clenched fists.

He had not expected Fu Chengyan to snub him like this in front of so many people. He had already taken the initiative to greet him, but Fu Chengyan had completely ignored him, much to his chagrin.

Fu Yuqing felt completely embarrassed at the way all eyes fell on him. However, Fu Chengyan was warmer to Shi Jingzheng.

Fu Yuqing glanced at Shi Jingzheng. Even though they were in-laws now, he still felt that he had lost his pride. He had thought that Fu Chengyan was here to support him, only to have the complete opposite happen instead.

There was no way Fu Yuqing could accept this. He was going to use this occasion to get closer to Fu Chengyan but it did not come to fruition.

Looking at Fu Yuqing’s stony face as he recalled the earlier situation, Shi Jingzheng could piece the puzzle together.

Fu Chengyan was escorted to Shi Yunsheng’s room by the hotel manager. Even though Shi Yunsheng was at the wedding, due to his age, he did not want to tire himself out by entertaining the guests. Hence, Shi Jingzheng booked a room for him.

As the hotel manager escorted Fu Chengyan, he could not help but size him up along the way. Who had not heard of Fu Chengyan in Jiang City? However, very few had the chance to meet him in person. Of course everyone’s curiosity was piqued as the famous Master Chengyan finally appeared.

He pushed the door open and said, “Mr. Fu, Old Mr. Shi is right inside.”

Fu Chengyan sent him a sweeping glance before stepping into the room. Shi Yunsheng was indeed resting in this room. However, there was one more person in the room: Jiang Shizheng.

The two of them were engaged in a game of chess when they both looked up. They then put down their chess pieces when they saw that it was Fu Chengyan. “Yan, you are here?”

“Yes, Granddad, Grandpa!” Fu Chengyan replied while walking up to them. He removed his jacket and draped it casually over his arm before standing next to the old men. “So you are playing chess?” He took a glance at the game and smiled as he realized that it was a close fight. “Both of you sure are early!”

Shi Yunsheng smiled as he invited Fu Chengyan to take a seat. “We are not that early. I wasn’t planning on coming, but I was worried because I knew that Nuan would definitely want to be here!” Shi Yunsheng sighed as he looked around. “Where is that girl?”

Fu Chengyan flashed a small smile. “Outside. We didn’t come together.”

Jiang Shizheng looked up with a stony face. “Come on, are you messing around just like Nuan? How much longer do you want to delay your wedding? Don’t tell me that this is up to Nuan. As a man, if you aren’t in agreement, what can Nuan do?”

The thought of Fu Xicheng and Shi Wei together just angered Jiang Shizheng. Even though Shi Wei was his granddaughter as well, he saw for himself that she had been especially loved and spoilt since she was little, and it was not like she would miss the attention of an old man like himself. However, it was different for Shi Nuan who had been treated completely differently since she was a child. Because of this, Jiang Shizheng became more and more disapproving of the Shi family, even towards his own daughter Jiang Yu.

Instead of being offended, Fu Chengyan nodded. “Grandpa, you are absolutely right. I really have not handled this matter properly. It’s just that Nuan is worried that if others know about our marriage, there will be people come looking for me.” He said calmly and unaffectedly. “Grandpa, you know very well that I don’t mind it at all, or else I wouldn’t have chosen to marry Nuan. However, Nuan still needs some time to adjust herself.”

Fu Chengyan continued confidently and calmly. However, Jiang Shizheng was not in that good a mood. “Isn’t this all about Nuan’s own stubbornness? Moreover, this problem that she is worried about will always remain. That is your identity and it can never change.”

“Grandpa, trust me, it won’t take that long.” Fu Chengyan whispered confidently. “I never engage myself in a losing battle.”

“Get Nuan in here! I haven’t seen her in a long time.” Jiang Shizheng knew very well that this student of his was very independent and opinionated, therefore he had no intention of changing his mind. However, because Shi Nuan was his granddaughter, he still felt that he should be doing something.

Fu Chengyan smiled as he pulled out his phone and gave Shi Nuan a call.

Shi Nuan had just come out of the bathroom when she ran into Fu Xicheng. He stopped her at her tracks and stared steadily at her.

Shi Nuan felt extremely uncomfortable with that, so she said coldly, “Excuse me!”

He refused to let her go. “Nuan, I need to talk to you!”

“I don’t think there is anything for us to talk about.” Shi Nuan refused to give Fu Xicheng the time of day. To her, they had no more ties to each other, so she was no longer obliged to be nice to him, let alone have a chat with him. “Excuse me, I said!”

“No, Nuan, I know you still care for me. Look, aren’t you here for my wedding? If you didn’t care for me, you wouldn’t be here at all!” Fu Xicheng continued to speak self-indulgently. “Nuan, actually I….”

“Stop.” Shi Nuan interrupted him exasperatedly and frowned at him. “Fu Xicheng, you are really quite a funny guy, aren’t you? I’m not sure what your brain is made of, but isn’t it perfectly normal for me to attend my own sister’s wedding? I am just here to give her my blessings, and it has absolutely nothing to do with you.” Shi Nuan spoke resolutely, with no trace of affection that she used to have for him. It was as if she was just looking at any ordinary person, but an ordinary person that annoyed her as well.

“You really don’t have to think so much. To me, you are merely a stranger. Now, this stranger is about to be my brother-in-law, that’s it!”

Shi Nuan then attempted to walk around him to leave, only to have him grab her arm to stop her. “I don’t believe you, Nuan. You still love me. There is no way you could have forgotten about us. We were together for three years. Three whole years! I know you are not that kind of cruel person. Listen to me, Nuan, just say that you still love me, and I’ll marry you right away.”

“Are you mad?” Shi Nuan shook off Fu Xicheng’s hand immediately. “You may be crazy but I am not. The whole of Jiang City knows of your big fat wedding, and now you want to walk out on your bride? Do you even know what you are doing here?”

“I thought that you were just irresponsible towards me, but as it turns out, you are simply a man with no honor. Shi Wei was the one that you wanted to marry, but here you are telling me that you want to walk out of your own wedding? Fu Xicheng, you are really not a man. Where is your sense of responsibility?”

Shi Nuan’s eyes were completely ice cold now. “I don’t want to talk to you anymore. This is Shi Wei’s and your wedding. You should be out there, not here with me. Get off me!”

No matter what, Fu Xicheng refused to give way, and Shi Nuan’s patience was wearing thin. At this very moment, her phone rang, so she stepped back to fish her phone out of her bag. She hesitated when she saw Fu Chengyan’s number, but she still picked up the call. “Hello!”

“Where are you?”

“At the bathroom!” Shi Nuan said. “What’s up?”

“I’m with Granddad and Grandpa. They want to see you.” Fu Chengyan continued. “Is someone there with you?”

Shi Nuan could not help but gasp at his ability to predict. As Fu Xicheng was still there, she could not help but reply in a rather annoyed fashion, “Mmhmm, my brother-in-law is here.”

Fu Chengyan’s eyes darkened and everything suddenly froze around him. “Stay there and wait for me. I’ll be there immediately!”

“Hey…no….” Before Shi Nuan could finish talking, Fu Chengyan had already hung up.

Shi Nuan stared dumbfoundedly at the phone for a while as she did not know what to do at all. Fu Xicheng was still here. Will they begin to fight when Fu Chengyan gets here? Moreover, based on her current relationship with Fu Chengyan……

“Who called you?” Fu Xicheng suddenly leaned towards her, giving her such a big shock that she nearly dropped her phone. Shi Nuan immediately took two steps back and looked at Fu Xicheng defensively. “It’s none of your business!”

“What do you mean it’s none of my business? Nuan, I am your….”

“Brother-in-law.” Shi Nuan interrupted him through gritted teeth. “I know you are my brother-in-law, so there is no need to keep reminding me of that. Anyway, so what if you are my brother-in-law? It does not mean that I am obliged to report every phone call to you!”

“Shi Nuan!” Fu Xicheng clasped her hand and gritted his teeth. “Do you have to speak to me like this? You know how I feel about you, so why are you treating me like this? Don’t tell me that you really have someone else in your life now?”

“Let me go!” Shi Nuan felt very uncomfortable with Fu Xicheng holding her wrists so tightly. “What are you doing, Fu Xicheng? Let me go! You know very well that since you have chosen Shi Wei, there can never be anything else between you and I. Let me go!”

Shi Nuan growled but Fu Xicheng still refused to let go. “Shi Nuan, you are mine. Let me make myself clear: I am not letting you go, not in this lifetime!”

“What are you doing?”

Both Fu Xicheng and Shi Nuan was shocked by Fu Chengyan’s cold voice. In fact, Fu Xicheng was so stunned by his appearance that Shi Nuan took the opportunity to push him away and walk up to Fu Chengyan. “Mr. Fu!”

Fu Chengyan looked down at Shi Nuan’s face and his eyes immediately darkened as he spotted the red marks on her wrist. “Ms. Shi!”

Fu Xicheng then looked at Fu Chengyan while he was still baffled. Why is he here? ”Uncle! What are you doing here?”
