She had never been so troubled before, even to the extent of having depression. If this were to continue, she would definitely go crazy, so she didn't intend to continue like this. She decided she must confront the situation calmly.
She would no longer pretend that she didn't know and act like a foolish woman, feigning ignorance about Mo Wen every day. She obviously had seen him with Qin Xiaoyou, holding hands and strolling through campus, but had pretended not to see it. She obviously knew that he had connections with so many women, even with her confidante, but pretended not to know it.
Relationship and marriage matters were not joking matters. Nobody could afford to play with them, so she decided to clarify some matters with Mo Wen.
There were only two choices between them. One was to get married. She was willing to be a good wife and take care of her husband and children. The other was to end their relationship and from now on, have nothing to do with each other and have no further contact.
Then she might be able to continue to live with peace of mind and no longer live every day in constant anxiety and hesitation.
"I choose the first one."
After Mo Wen heard her, he decisively chose the first option. Only a fool would choose the second one…
"Really?" Shen Jing looked at Mo Wen dubiously. He didn't seem to be someone who was so obliging.
"Of course, it's real." Mo Wen nodded amply. How could it not be real?
"Do you dare to get a marriage certificate with me? And guarantee that you won't have any relations with any other woman?" Shen Jing asked while keeping her eyes fixed on Mo Wen.
"Get a marriage certificate? There's no need to be so troublesome… Just following me home and worshiping the heaven and earth will do. My family is very traditional, and registering marriage is impermissible," Mo Wen said with a hollow laugh.
"Hmph, I knew it."
Shen Jing snorted coldly and turned her head to the side as two streams of tears rolled down her face. Mo Wen's words were obviously insincere.
Shen Jing wiped away her tears, took a deep breath, and uttered, "Since you refuse to choose the first one, I assume you have chosen the second one. Now you can get out."
The atmosphere instantly turned gloomy, and they sat face to face without uttering a word.
Mo Wen sighed and placed the tea cup onto the coffee table. Then, he walked to Shen Jing and sat quietly next to her on the sofa.
Shen Jing moved aside angrily to keep a distance from Mo Wen, but he pulled her back as he embraced her in his arms.
"Let go of me, you b*stard."
Shen Jing instantly struggled and was constantly pounding her hands on Mo Wen, but it didn't have any effect at all. She remained in his arms.
"Don't move," Mo Wen said helplessly.
At this time, how could Shen Jing listen to him? She was struggling aggressively in his arms.
Mo Wen shrugged his shoulders helplessly, didn't say a word, and just embraced Shen Jing quietly.
Shen Jing was unaware of how much time had passed. Perhaps she was just tired, but she leaned silently onto Mo Wen's chest and quietly cried.
"Fate is a wondrous thing. Nobody knows what will happen in the next moment. Since we have come together, it is our destiny. You have become my woman, so don't you ever think of leaving."
Mo Wen's hand touched Shen Jing's face. He sighed and said, "You can say that I'm arrogant and unreasonable, but from the moment that our paths intersected, I became a part of your world, and nothing is going to change that.
"Perhaps there might not be any deep relationship between us, but a relationship can be nurtured, and as the time we get along increases, our relationship will develop. I will try my best to be an eligible husband whom you will fall in love with, and at least I will work hard to be responsible. Even if you were to leave me, I would not let you go, so you don't have a choice."
Mo Wen didn't know what his feelings towards Shen Jing were, or perhaps it was simply possessiveness, and their relationship would not be too deep. In the world of animals, the male animal had possessiveness over the female animal. It was the inviolable dignity of a ruler.
In fact, it was the same in the human world. Which of those rulers with high position, great power, and great influence didn't have the male arrogant heart? How could they easily let go of a woman, just to see her belong to another man?
Regardless of the worlds, it had always been the strongest one who received respect. He believed whether he was living in the feudal society of his past lifetime or the modern society now, there was no difference in terms of essence.
In the feudal society of the ancient times, the emperor had supreme power and position. Who would dare to touch the emperor's woman?
Mo Wen had been born into a feudal society, so some of his thinking was deeply rooted. For instance, polygamy was a normal thing, and he didn't think much about it.
A woman was a man's coat, and was one of the symbols of the man's position and influence. It was so in any world.
Shen Jing was exasperated and yet amused. What an arrogant and childish man! Simply unbelievable and unreasonable.
"What do you think you are? You think you can control everything?"
Shen Jing laughed self-mockingly. In her eyes, Mo Wen at this moment was like a boastful little boy who was insensible, arrogant, egotistical, and opinionated.
Polygamy? He thinks he is an emperor! He thinks he can change the morals of this world to enable a girl to follow him without regrets and be willing to share him with another woman?
"You can run away, but I guarantee you that regardless of where you go, I will take you back."
Mo Wen curled his lips into a smile, extended his hand and pinched Shen Jing's chin before kissing her arrogantly.
Shen Jing struggled a little but couldn't withstand Mo Wen's overbearingness and could only compromise at the end.
After a long time, they separated. Shen Jing was slightly breathless, and her face was completely flushed. It was the first time someone had kissed her for so long. She was nearly suffocated.
"Let go of me."
Shen Jing pushed Mo Wen weakly and thought of moving away from Mo Wen's body.
"Don't you want to have your meal? Who were you hoping would cook for you?" Shen Jing uttered harshly. It was already twelve o'clock. They had been embracing for more than an hour.
"You are a feast to my eyes. It'll be enough to eat you." Mo Wen teased as he curled his lips.
"If you don't let go of me, I will run away and disappear from your eyes forever."
Shen Jing bit her lips as she realized that when she was interacting with Mo Wen, she seemed to always be in a passive position. She basically couldn't do anything to this overbearing man.
"You can't run away. But your husband is indeed hungry now."
Mo Wen laughed as he stood to help Shen Jing up. After lying on Mo Wen's body for more than an hour, her blood was not circulating, so her hands and legs were quite stiff.
When she was first stood up, she nearly fell.
Shen Jing smacked Mo Wen's hand and rolled her eyes at him before turning around to walk into the kitchen.
After making a fuss, Shen Jing discovered that her emotions had strangely calmed down quite a bit. Could that bastard's guarantee have set my mind at ease? He will never leave me? Can I believe him?
She smiled bitterly. Now she could only play it by ear. Perhaps Mo Wen is only in an adolescent stage in which he is full of heroic spirit and thinks he can control everything. Wait 'til he has tasted some hardships. He will understand that many things won't happen according to his whims.
Perhaps one day, those women who have connections with Mo Wen might leave him due to his childishness. In the end, he will lose everything and gain nothing. The frivolity of youth comes with a price.
If I can wait 'til the end, wait 'til everyone has left him, wait 'til he finally understands his own childishness, will he settle down? He wouldn't be thinking unrealistically of those impossible things and would keep his nose clean to live happily with me.
Shen Jing didn't know that unconsciously she had begun to compromise, to find reasons for Mo Wen's mischiefs, and to find excuses for herself to persist.
A woman always had unique feelings towards her first man. That feeling was incomprehensible, so as long as it was not hopeless, they would persist. As for what they were persisting for, perhaps they themselves didn't know, as the reason they found to persist was itself a lie that they believed and was a way of consoling themselves.
After lunch, Mo Wen sauntered out of Shen Jing's place idly. When he had walked a short distance, his phone rang.
Mo Wen whipped out his phone quizzically. The number displayed was an unfamiliar number and was the same as the missed call earlier.
"Who is this?" Mo Wen asked as he took the call.
"Young master Mo, I'm Wang Biao, the person who is in charge of the Ice World Ice Skating Rink. Do you remember me?" A cautious voice came from the phone and was obviously fearful of Mo Wen.
"Uh-huh." Mo Wen nodded upon hearing the reply. Indeed, he recalled that someone owed him 30,000,000 dollars and had yet to repay it.
"Young Master Mo, I have communicated with the parents of Lu Wei about the payment of 30,000,000 dollars. They… they…" Wang Biao hemmed and hawed.
"They are not paying?" Mo Wen curled his lips and smiled coldly.
"Lu Wei's father, who is the Chairman of Lu Group, Lu Zhenkun, hopes to have a face-to-face discussion with you about the matter of compensation."
Wang Biao laughed bitterly. Being in the underworld for so many years, he naturally knew that this so-called discussion was not going to be as simple as a real discussion. All the intelligent people would understand the meaning between the lines.
He went to the Lu Clan yesterday to discuss the compensation and spent half a day explaining clearly about the reason he owed and the amount of the compensation.
Lu Wei's leg was broken, and he was seriously injured. Now, when he went to the Lu Clan to ask for compensation, it would be weird if Lu Clan's treatment of him was good. If he hadn't constantly stated that this matter had nothing to do with him, and that he was also being coerced to discuss the matter with the Lu Clan, it was unknown if he would be standing around talking to Mo Wen.
Lu Zhenkun only had one condition. Compensation was possible, but he must meet the person who had beaten up his son.
Yesterday, he called Mo Wen on the phone, but it hadn't gone through, which had given him a shock. He was constantly worried that Mo Wen had tricked him and left him with a fake phone number.
However, he was relieved today when he had finally gotten through. Otherwise, he couldn't answer to the Lu Clan. When the Immortals fight, the mortals suffer. It is never easy.
"Face-to-face discussion? Since the Lu Clan has cordially invited me, I obviously have no objection. Time and place?" Mo Wen said nonchalantly. Someone was willing to give him money, why would he be unwilling?
