Ming hugged me tightly and kept pushing. My body and his body were close together.
I could feel the light smell of wine in his breath.
He was drunk.
I was nervous, “because I’m not sure…”
“Then you have to tell me, or I will think you don’t trust me, or you are even…” Ming says, “alert.”
Yes, I was actually very alert to him.
I thought I would leave him at first, so I didn’t tell him about it.
But now that we were together, I told him.
I shook my head. “No, I won’t do that in the future.”
Ming’s expression eased a little. He suddenly lowered his head and put the thin lips on my lips and began to kiss me.
His kiss was gentle and slow.
He went deeper.
I was nervous and resistant. I thought he kissed Erin, so I really mind.
But I didn’t want to say. Once I said it, Ming would say he would never touch her again.
I passively accepted it.
I heard Justin all of a sudden.
Ming stopped. We both looked at him.
Justin said, “go on.”
Then he left.
But we couldn’t go on after he disturbed us.
But when Justin left, Ming looked down at me and his eyes were warm. “Have you thought about it? When are you going to accept me?”
“Forget it.” Ming said first, “I know you want to think about it for a while. That kiss just now has given me the answer.”
I lowered my head and didn’t speak.
After that, Ming followed me into the box.
The people in the box were drinking while playing cards.
After the party, Ming and I went out. When I thought it was going to be over, Ming suddenly called Brady in front, “President Well.”
Brady didn’t dare to neglect. He turned and asked, “President Jessop, what can I do for you?”
“I want to take some of your time. Is it convenient?” Ming always spoke politely.
But his identity didn’t allow Brady to refuse.
Brady nodded and glanced at me. There was a flicker of unease in his eyes.
I guessed he already knew what Ming was going to ask.
Ming and Brady stepped aside. Ming asked directly, “President Well, my girlfriend said that Well Family has a daughter, your sister, who died several years ago.”
“Yes…” When Brady heard him mention it, he looked flustered.
I saw Brady’s forehead seem to be sweating.
“How did she die?” Ming asked as if nothing had happened.
Although they were in different fields, people who controlled more capital had more power.
“Huh? Can’t you say that?” Ming said. In fact, I was afraid he would say, “if it’s inconvenient for you, I don’t mind.”
But fortunately, he didn’t say it.
At this time, all the people just left. There were only three of us in the empty corridor.
Justin was out, too.
Brady knew that if he didn’t say it, he may not be able to leave. He said, “it’s disgraceful. In those days, each family had only two children. My parents wanted a son but had a daughter, so they sent her away. Then they gave birth to my brother now.”
Brady had a brother.
I heard his brother was good-for-nothing.
“And then.” Ming was expressionless and did not show interest.
But he went on.
He asked him for me.
Brady knew I wanted to ask. He said to me, “I haven’t seen my sister for many years. One day she came back suddenly and got pregnant before she married. And she kept saying strange things. She looked crazy!”
“And then?” I asked this time.
What he said was credible.
Brady looked up at me and then at Ming.
Ming looked at him and said, “I can give you the agency of the medicine we just released recently…”
Brady looked excited and continued, “my parents wanted to get rid of her, but she was going to give birth that night. My parents could only send her to the hospital. But she had only twin daughters.”
Brady looked disdainful when he said it.
This patriarchal family!
I grabbed Ming’s arm and tried to control my emotions. I asked politely, “and then?”
“I don’t know. I haven’t seen the two kids.” Brady said.
“What about your sister?” I asked.
Brady looked up and was impatient. He obviously didn’t want to go on.
But his every move told us not only that his sister was not dead, but also that he knew her whereabouts.
Ming didn’t worry and slowly said, “in fact, there are many people who want agency rights…”
“My sister was insane and my parents took the children away and threw them away. She was stimulated and mad and scratched my mother! My parents sent her to a mental hospital!”
Brady said it all.
His words upset me.
My mother had been through these things.
Who was my irresponsible father? According to Murray, my mother was beautiful and smart, and she was normal when she left.
Why was she crazy when she came back to York?
“Which mental hospital?” I asked.
Brady waved. “I really don’t know. I’ve told you all I know. I don’t know anything else!”
Ming nodded. “I’ll let my assistant contact you.”
He meant he was going to give him the agency.
Brady was happy. “Thank you, President Jessop.”
Then he left.
I knew Ming’s agency must be profitable. He was going to lose money after he gave Brady.
I was a little embarrassed. I looked up at him. “Thank you for helping me.”
He bowed his head and kissed me softly. He smiled and said, “if you want me to kiss you, just say it.”
