Cheng Jie looked at the woman who walked in slowly through the door. She was wearing a simple beige dress; her hair was let down and it was naturally draping over her shoulders.
'So... This is Ye Yuwei.'
Ye Yuwei continued walking forward until she was about two meters away from the stage. She could clearly see the people who were seated on the stage.
Yu Sha'er could feel her heart beating inexplicably fast, as Ye Yuwei glared at her.
"Why are you here, Mrs. Gu? Since today is the day that Brother Juexi is signing the contract, you should give him face and not come to create trouble again. Stop embarrassing him every time," Yu Sha'er said calmly.
"Yu Sha'er, do you remember our previous bet?" Ye Yuwei asked while looking at Yu Sha'er.
Yu Sha'er paused for a moment but managed to keep the smile on her face. "What are you talking about, Mrs. Gu? When did I make a bet with you?"
["If we find out that this matter is really related to your Yu Sha'er, I hope that CEO Gu will take the most just and necessary action."
"But if this had nothing to do with her, then what are you going to do?"
"If this really had nothing to do with Miss Yu, CEO Gu can take any action you want against me."
"What valuable things does Mrs. Gu own?"
"I do not have anything. However, I do own something that Miss Yu wants to have. If this matter had nothing to do with Miss Yu, how about I retreat and give up the position of Mrs. Gu to Miss Yu? How about that as a compensation for Miss Yu?"
"Mrs. Gu, what do you think the position of the young mistress of Gu Mansion is, that you can just use it anyhow to make a bet?"
"Didn't you say that I was merely your mother's choice? I am now giving you the chance to choose someone that you like."
"So, what does CEO Gu think of my proposal?"
"This matter had nothing to do with me anyway. If Mrs. Gu insists, then let her check it out."
"But I still have one condition."
"What do you mean, Ye Yuwei? Do you want to go back on your word now?"
"Why are you getting agitated? I have not finished speaking. If she really had something to do with this matter, I want her to publicly admit that she is a third party who seduced someone else's husband."]
The clear dialogue between them could be heard—sentence by sentence, coming out from the voice recorder.
Ye Yuwei slowly turned off the voice recorder in her hand.
Cheng Jie turned his head to look at Gu Juexi.
'Well, this man seems to be quite promiscuous.'
However, Gu Juexi had a blank expression on his face. He seemed to be saying, 'do not bother me, I am watching a movie right now.'
Yu Sha'er clenched her fists and pressed her lips tightly together. "I do not understand what you mean, Mrs. Gu. I know that Mrs. Gu has lost favor with the public recently because of the issue involving Mr. Geng, but Mrs. Gu, you shouldn't be pushing the blame to me."
Yu Sha'er glared at Ye Yuwei with a look that said 'I am not going to take the blame for this!'
Ye Yuwei looked at Yu Sha'er and said, "I did not come here today to push the blame around. I am here today to return every blame that you had previously subjected me to. I will give it all back to you." Ye Yuwei smirked as she slowly made her way up the stage.
Gu Juexi looked at Ye Yuwei. He observed her closely—he looked at the firmness of every step she took, he noticed how determined she was to get the divorce.
She was walking—
Walking away from him.
Ye Yuwei walked toward Gu Juexi and stood in front of him. There was only a table between them.
He was seated while she was standing.
She looked down at him.
Gu Juexi leaned back against his chair and looked at her. His expression was unreadable.
Ye Yuwei admitted that she had never been able to understand or read his expression before. Even if she wanted to make an assumption, she could never.
