My Wife is a Beautiful CEO
Chapter 116: Teacher, student

 

When Yang Chen arrived at Zhonghai’s Yizhong, it was still not time yet for his appointment with TangTang. Yang Chen leisurely got off the car and smoked in front of the school’s entrance alone, while thinking about some matters.

 

Many of the students and teachers who came and went saw this young man stand beside a brand new BMW while smoking to wait for someone, and they had some thoughts about it. They obviously thought in the direction of a ‘sugardaddy’ or something similar.

 

Yang Chen wasn’t very knowledgeable in this aspect, he only saw a lot of people looking towards him, so he thought that they were attracted towards him because he was dressed exceptionally stylishly on this day, and had a despotic aura.

 

When Yang Chen finished his first cigarette and was about to smoke his second, a refreshingly dressed slim figure walked out of the school. This person wore a bluish-white checkered shirt, and a dull three-quarter skinny jeans. While the jeans exhibited the beautiful curves, the pair of white calves were exceptionally attractive.

 

“Jingjing.” Yang Chen called out to the lady. He was initially considering whether or not to take a look inside the school, it was a surprise for him to coincidentally bump into Li Jingjing.

 

When he previously met Old Li’s family together with Jiang Shuo for a meal in the restaurant, he had already noticed the irregularity in Li Jingjing’s mood, but since Old Li and his wife were present, it wasn’t right for him to say something about it. Besides, Li Jingjing herself didn’t seem to want to speak to him.

 

Because he had been busy over the last few days, he forgot to take the initiative and contact Li Jingjing. Perhaps he himself didn’t have the habit of contacting this lady himself, so he didn’t clear away the doubts he had.

 

Li Jingjing looked at Yang Chen with pleasant surprise in her eyes, she walked up and asked in a hopeful manner, “What are you doing here, Big brother Yang? Were you waiting for me?

 

Seeing the girl full of anticipation, Yang Chen felt that he was very cruel, but he still spoke the truth, “Erm… I’m waiting for someone, it’s a student in a school, we’ve an appointment to go play games.”

 

“Oh……” Li Jingjing lowered her head with disappointment, then stood where she was without a sound.

 

Yang Chen awkwardly smiled, “It’s just a wimpy kid, and I was free anyways, so we’re going to play some games. Actually, I’m not very familiar with this kid either.”

 

Li Jingjing forced a smile, “Big brother Yang, you’re being a bad influence for my school’s students, as a teacher shouldn’t I chase you away?”

 

“That kid took the initiative, I’m being passive.” Yang Chen defended himself.

 

“Is it a boy or a girl?” Li Jingjing softly asked.

 

“A girl, just a stinking brat.” Yang Chen didn’t cover up the truth.

 

Li Jingjing grudgingly looked at him, “Big brother Yang, this isn’t right of you, you’re already married and shouldn’t get involved with too many girls. Furthermore, she’s a highschool student, there’s still a long life in store for her, she should be studying properly, what you’re doing may interfere with her studies.”

 

“It isn’t what you think it is, we’re just normal friends. She said that she didn’t have anymore classes today, that’s why she’s accompanying me to play games, I wouldn’t lead someone astray, please be rest assured, Teacher Li.” Yang Chen said with an embarrassed smile.

 

Li Jingjing nodded, but turned silent again. Anybody could make out the feeling of being wronged that she held inside from her little face.

 

Yang Chen sighed, then asked: “Previously, I bumped into your family having a meal with Jiang Shuo, is it about you and him?”

 

Li Jingjing bit her lip, “Yep… Dad and Mom wants me to formally go out with Group Leader Jiang. Group Leader Jiang has been wooing me all this time, I… I don’t know what to do.”

 

“Do you like him?” Yang Chen asked.

 

“I… I don’t know……” Li Jingjing shook her head, “I don’t hate Group Leader Zhang, although he sometimes does things too boisterously, I don’t view him as a bad person, he has always treated me well. Dad and Mom have been through hardship their entire lives, I want to provide them better living conditions, and I don’t have the heart to reject them, so… so I am still considering.”

 

“Your mom should’ve told you to never come into contact with me again, right?” Yang Chen asked with a smile.

 

Li Jingjing raised her head in shock, “Big brother Yang, how did you know that?”

 

“Because you’re not someone who tells lies. That day, I watched your expression change, yet you forced yourself not to speak to me, so I guessed that you had a load on your mind.”

 

Li Jingjing unhappily said, “You knew that I had a load on my mind… yet you didn’t take the initiative to give me a call… I thought you were angry at me, Big brother Yang, I thought you planned to never care about me ever again……”

 

This soft voice made Yang Chen feel guilty inside, it seemed like he was indeed not caring enough towards the women around him. Perhaps this was the dilemma of a great man, always feeling like there wasn’t a need to think too much about things, and barely taking a lady’s sensitive feelings into consideration. He never knew that Li Jingjing had been brooding over this phone call he hadn’t made.

 

“Actually, things aren’t so bad. Perhaps it’s because I’m not used to it, and someday I may really fall in love with Group Leader Jiang……” Li Jingjing said, “After all, something like feelings can be slowly fostered, I can’t possibly hold on to an unrealistic happy ending my whole life, I must have my own life.”

 

Yang Chen stared blankly at her, he never expected to hear such words from Li Jingjing all of a sudden. Hearing such words, he didn’t have anything to say, when all was said and done her path had to be decided by her herself. Despite finding Jiang Shuo unworthy, he couldn’t just blabber it out. While feeling a little ashamed, he said in a relieved manner, “In the short time you’ve been a teacher, the way you speak has changed, but I feel happy for you.”

 

Li Jingjing mischievously rolled her eyes at him, “I have to be this way, I can’t possibly be bawling my eyes out the moment I see you, right?”

 

Looking at the girl’s bright and charming face under the warm sunlight, Yang Chen had the urge to give her face a pinch, but immediately felt that he shouldn’t. After all, he wasn’t a family member or a lover to her, if he kept doing such intimate actions yet wasn’t able offer an explanation, he wouldn’t even know what to call himself. So he put his hands into his pockets.

 

The atmosphere between the two was unusually awkward, even a pair of strangers who were meeting for the first time wouldn’t have such difficulty conversing.

 

Right at this time, a young lady ran out of the school wearing a yellow jacket and a black skirt. Seeing Yang Chen, she happily waved and shouted, “Uncle! Who’re you chatting with!?”

 

TangTang who was bursting with youth seemed exceptionally happy, she practically hopped her way to Yang Chen, but when she noticed Li Jingjing who stood beside Yang Chen, TangTang’s supple red lips formed an ‘o’, like a frightened little rabbit.

 

“Teach… Teacher Li… why’re you here… haha……” TangTang laughed in an incredibly awkward manner.

 

As if she had understood something, Li Jingjing said with a smile, “So the student Big brother Yang is waiting for is TangTang, what a coincidence.”

 

Yang Chen gave a start, then seemed to understand in a flash, “This girl is your student?”

 

“I am her form teacher.” Li Jingjing playfully stared at TangTang, revealing her dignity as a teacher, “TangTang, how many times have I told you, you have to work hard as a third year high schooler, don’t keep thinking of playing games. If you keep this up, I’ll have to give your mother a call y’know?”

 

“Ehhh……” TangTang stretched a hand and hugged onto Li Jingjing’s elbow, then rocked it coquettishly and said, “Teacher Li, I’ve already completed the computer exams today, so I’m going out to play with Uncle a little. I guarantee that I won’t just care about having fun, I’ll definitely hand in all of my assignments on time. Besides, didn’t I get into the top ten of my whole cohort? I’ll definitely do well, don’t you worry. You always use my mother to oppress me, that’s being too cruel to me!”

 

“One shouldn’t become arrogant when they succeed, it won’t do for you to be this conceited!” Li Jingjing seriously lectured.

 

TangTang raised both her hands in surrender, “Fine fine, Teacher Li, Great Beauty Li, please let me off, I’ve already made an appointment with Uncle. Besides, you’re acquainted with Uncle, Teacher Li, give Uncle face and let me off this time……” As she said then, TangTang moved to rock Yang Chen back and forth, signalling him to speak.

 

Yang Chen creased his brows, he secretly came to the conclusion that this brat was hiding something, but at this point he could only cooperate and say, “I think you can let her pass this time, Jingjing. It’s important to occasionally let loose as well, I’ll supervise her and not let her go overboard as she plays.”

 

Li Jingjing didn’t want to fall out with Yang Chen, so she could only nod and say, “Fine then, but TangTang, you have to return home on time. Don’t make your mother worry anymore.”

 

“Alrighty.” TangTang giggled, “I guarantee that I wouldn’t disappoint Teacher and Mom, it’s fine like this, isn’t it!”

 

Li Jingjing laughed and scolded her for being a sly sprite, then said nothing more.

 

TangTang was like a runaway convict, she dragged Yang Chen away and rushed towards the car, afraid that Li Jingjing would go back on her words and force her to stay in the school to study.

 

Yang Chen bitterly smiled and said goodbye to Li Jingjing, then got into the car.

 

Watching the car disappear into the distance, Li Jingjing who quietly stood there sighed. She turned around and walked off, her figure from behind seemed rather dejected.

 

On the other hand, TangTang who sat in the car patted her chest, “What a close shave, Uncle you’re too much, how could you coincidentally know Teacher Li? You nearly frightened me to death!”

 

“I’m friends with your Teacher Li’s father.” Yang Chen explained.

 

“Really?” TangTang spoke with disbelief, “But why is it that I find the way Teacher Li stares at Uncle seem rather vengeful? Uncle, you couldn’t have done something bad to Teacher Li, right?”

 

“Was it?” Yang Chen hadn’t noticed such deep vengeance in Li Jingjing’s gaze, he dryly laughed and said, “How could that be, I’m a married man.”

 

TangTang pouted and said, “Uncle you can stop pretending, in this day and age there are too many men who are cheating on their wives. My mom said it to me before, there aren’t many good men, especially in the city, they’re all fellows who have the face of a human but the heart of an animal.”

 

“Hey, don’t slander me, I’m not that sort of person.” Yang Chen said with an upright face. In his heart he muttered: This is all for the kid……

 

TangTang chuckled happily and said, “Uncle, what are you panicking for? Those words weren’t even directed at you, but to be honest, it would be good if Uncle could successfully woo Teacher Li, when that happens I wouldn’t need to act so timidly anymore. Uncle, you have no idea, ever since Teacher Li became my form teacher, I’ve been watched strictly. Furthermore, Teacher Li contacts my mother often, this is so unbearable!”

 

Yang Chen didn’t expect that Li Jingjing was this good of a teacher, her greatness was plain to see from the fact that she managed to actually control this problem child. He smiled and uttered, “You can stop grumbling, tell me where to go.”

 

TangTang frowned, her fair face displayed beautiful dimples, “Zhonghai eSports Centre.”

  • Jigoku Shounen

    Thanks for the chapters.

  • Oak

    Thanks for the chapter

  • Ricardo

    Li Jingjing is one of the types of female character that i hate the most in these kind of novels, won’t miss her if she gets forgotten on the future chapters.

    • cupcake ninja

      Hm? Why? She’s not been really bad. Her only flaw is being too passive. Her mother is the one in the wrong here, since she’s pushing her daughter on a man simply because of his wealth without considering whether she likes him or not. Instead the mother should just urge JingJing to find some other decent man, who she like and isn’t already married.

      Getting back to JingJing, she’s sort of a martyr. She thinks that entering a relationship with that guy will let her family prosper, that they deserve better lives. If she marries him, that may happen, but she isn’t thinking about her own happiness, just doing things for her family and unable to really tell her mother her own thoughts on the matter.

      She’s…passive, like i already said. And that’s bad, but i can understand why. Her wanting to give her family a better lifestyle is something that many women in real life have done, it’s a good motivation for something like this, a marriage to someone you don’t really love or care for. Other than that, though, she hasn’t been that bad. So your “hate” is just something i dont get, honestly, but to each their own. Personally I think she’d grow, or at least i hope, after all this is done. Her making her own choice and turning the guy down would make for quite a bit of character developement on her part.

      • Ricardo

        Yeah well she could get better for my tastes in the future, but for now she is too boring at the moment she is reminding me of other female character in a certain novel that i hate very much well i hope she changes…

        • cupcake ninja

          Yes. She can mature a bit more. Right now she’s too weak-willed when it comes to her family and love life. If those are gone, though, if she becomes a bit more assertive, then she’d be great. So far, amazingly, i think i’m liking Mo Qianni (or whatever her name is, i may be getting it wrong) the most. She was too overbearing at first, but she’s coming around. Rose is great as well, but we haven’t seen much of her in comparison to some others, mainly only when the MC wants a hook-up. But i digress. I agree with you on that front, that woman needs some character development.

  • Mesmerised

    Thanks for the chapter!

    > “I don’t hate Group Leader Zhang, although he sometimes does things too boisterously, I don’t view him as a bad person, he has always treated me well.

    What is fucking wrong with all the girls in this story! She is useless one moment and suddenly super high speced the next, this is the same for the others as well You think he cares about? You are just another mere conquest on his path! How couldnt she know that?!

    The only girls who havent annoyed the crap out of me in this story is currently Rose and that tomboy police girl.

  • sybziro101

    Thanks for the chapter!

  • Danis

    Thanks for the chapter 😀

  • agila0212

    Thank you again for another chapter 🙂

  • Danis

    Moarrrrrrrr

  • SeraphiMaelstrom

    Whether she likes it or not, he has know, if he isn’t going to take her in, he should just let her go. What then after he stops her from marrying that douche side character? Will he take responsibility? Of fcking course not. He will just leave one lonely woman to rot. Even if she doesn’t like her husband, over time she might, even if she can’t, she would most likely love their child. This is more happiness and less risk than being close to goddamn Yun Che. Huuuuh… This character just wants all the woman in his pocket huh…

    • Letmein

      This is Yang Chen though. He has room in his heart/in his bed for any beauty he takes an interest in. And given the potential husband is basically her boss sexually harassing her into a relationship, it is better that he disappear into an unmarked grave.

      • The Fabulous

        but you do know that he is afraid of tainting the pure Li Jingjing.. well he did say she was best wife material

    • FTxCerber

      You think that guy will marry? You think she will have a decent life with that kind of two faced person? Her living alone is by far better than being used as a mere product to thrown after she has outlived her beauty and usefulness!

    • Ricardo

      Seems like we got a ”raws” reader or a future ”reader” here.

      • watchin

        Did he mention any spoilers in that?

    • anhrefn

      but he let her go…

    • cupcake ninja

      (This is gonna be a long post, i’m just laying out my thoughts and opinions on matter at hand, among other things)

      Wait, i dont get what you mean? He stated clearly, at least to himself, that she has to make decisions like this herself and that he shouldn’t interfere with them. And he’s right. I would be disappointed in her if she let him take care of things, just start a relationship with him despite him being married. For those like Rose, it’s fine, but this girl would be giving up her….hm, not sure if the word would be “ideals” or not. Simply put, she would doing something that is against her beliefs and character, getting together with a man who’s married.

      And he hasn’t left any women to rot or any such thing, and i also doubt he will. He is in a serious relationship with Rose despite it being said she’s just a mistress. And as for the other women, he’s not had any intimate relations with them. Flirting, yeah, but nothing more.

      I dont know what you mean by rot, either. As long as he accepts and loves them, even if they are dissatisfied with having to share him, they would still likely be happy to some degree at the very least because they would love him and know he loves them. It’s not as if any of the women shown are dirt-poor and incapable of taking care of themselves without him.

      Also, SHE’S the one who would have to let him go. He has taken her out that one time, accompanied her to a party or whateve, but he has not made any move on her or truly flirted with her like he did with the other women. Her feelings of love for him are one-sided, and even if he cares for her, right now he just wants her to be happy. He doesn’t want her to be inovolved in any affairs with him, because he thinks she deserves better.

      Its different from the other women such as Mo whatever-her-name-is. This girl really likes him, which he knows, while the other women were just harmless flirting. His intentions were clear, he either just flirted for fun or just wanted a one night stand. With her, he cant do that. I doubt he thinks any of the other women exept Rose would agree to being a mistress anyway, and that they would really love him, so he isn’t as careful with them. Her he’d have to seriously consider what to do with, since she’d probably agree to a casual thing as long as they were together, which to him is something he doesnt want to all but force on her.

      As for the potential husband, we as readers know that the man has no intention of marrying her. He wants her, so will do anything to have her, but that’s mainly so he can have sex with her. Why would a man such as him marry a girl from some common family? He’d keep her as a mistress for a short time, but nothing more, he’d eventually just throw her away. He’s different from the MC. The MC is responsible in this regard. He’d take care of the people he cares for. He never just throw Rose aside. As for JingJing, he’d take care for her in the way of not making her a mistress. Rose, on the other hand, wants to be with him, and is fine with being one, while JingJing is the type of girl who wouldn’t fit that role.

      Why would you say that love can be fostered slowly when you know the sort of man that guy is? Yeah, love can be created slow, can be worked on over time, but with him? He, we know, would never treat her as a woman he should be serious with, and instead just get what he wants before leaving her.

      I get that perhaps you meant she can slowly work on loving someone else who isn’t the MC or that bastard, but she’d first have to let him go. And husband? Even if that guy did marry her, you’d want her to be forced into it because of a scheming mother? The mom wants her to be taken care of, her actual happiness, despite her words, seems irrelevent since she thinks money=happiness. She has misguided notions, she should instead want her daughter to find some decent man other than the MC or that other guy.

      A person like that would likely cheat on her anyway. And don’t say that i’m a hypocrit for bashing the guy for any cheating but not MC, that im ignoring what Yang Chen is doing only since he’s the MC. Because the MC’s marriage to Lin Ruoxi is just a contract due to her having sex with him, nothing more. Their marriage–while legal– is merely a farce, really. So him having a relationship with someone else is to be expected. In JingJing’s, she’d be wronged, and even if she did end up loving their child if they had one, she’d still be in a marriage that was brought about by her own mother’s meddling and urging instead of something she herself wanted.

      [Long ass rant is now over]….Feel free to argue with me on this, i wont mind, i just hope you dont feel offended by this. My tone may seem condescending or some tome such thing, but that’s not intended. If you have any points to make regarding this topic, go ahead and respond.
