As Butler Kim was speaking, the door to the emergency room was opened and Auntie Mao was pushed out with a plaster on her leg.
Ye Yuwei rushed over to Auntie Mao and held onto her hands. "Auntie Mao…"
"Silly girl. Why are you crying? Auntie Mao already made some chicken soup for you at home. See what happens when you are old, you get clumsy…"
"Auntie Mao, why are you so careless?" Gu Juexi stood on the other side of Auntie Mao. Although he was berating her, his words carried more concern than anger.
Auntie Mao paused for a moment and asked the nurse who was pushing her to stop. She looked at the both of them and said, "Has the two of you really divorced?" Without waiting for their reply, Auntie Mao immediately grieved. "Then what am I staying alive for? Why bother saving me, just leave me to die. Anyway, I am already so old…"
"We did not divorce," Gu Juexi suddenly said, interrupting Auntie Mao.
Ye Yuwei looked up, but Gu Juexi was looking at Auntie Mao.
Auntie Mao was also a strange person. After Gu Juexi spoke, she fell silent, but still looked at them hesitantly. "I do not believe you. Young Mistress, please tell Auntie Mao the truth. I trust anything you say."
At this moment, Gu Juexi finally turned to look at Ye Yuwei.
"Auntie Mao, I…"
"I know, I know. This bastard has done so many bad things to you. Fine, just divorce. After you divorce, I can also die in peace. Our young mistress need not…"
"No, no…" Ye Yuwei held onto Auntie Mao's hands that were waving frantically in the air. "We really did not divorce. Auntie Mao, please go to the ward first."
Anyway, the divorce agreement had not been finalized yet. So, it did not count as an official divorce.
"Good, if you say you are not divorcing then I will believe you. Butler Kim, please go back and bring us the chicken soup that I stewed for the mistress. Don't let the maid at home take advantage of it." Auntie Mao's expression ad changed into a livelier and happier one. She held onto Ye Yuwei's hand and tapped it happily like a child. "We will give it to our young mistress to drink."
Ye Yuwei nodded slightly and tears started falling from her eyes.
From his position, Gu Juexi could only see Ye Yuwei nodding her head and swaying her body slightly.
Gu Juexi arranged for Auntie Mao to stay in a private room. PA Wen arrived just in time to help Auntie Mao complete her admission procedures.
In the ward, Ye Yuwei sat on the edge of Auntie Mao's bed. Auntie Mao did not let go, but continued holding onto Ye Yuwei's hands. She kept talking to Ye Yuwei, but her voice got lower and lower, probably due to her fatigue.
Auntie Mao dozed off in a while, probably due to the drugs that she had taken.
Ye Yuwei put a quilt over her carefully.
After completing the admission procedures, PA Wen came in and said, "CEO, the admission procedures have been completed."
Gu Juexi nodded his head but did not reply.
Xiao Yaojing stood behind Ye Yuwei and stared at Gu Juexi.
"Gu Juexi, I only said that we were not getting a divorce to calm Auntie Mao down. If you think that this is one of my schemes, I have nothing else to say," Ye Yuwei said. After all, Gu Juexi had said from the beginning that the mention of divorce had only been one of Ye Yuwei's many schemes. He had said that she did not really want the divorce.
Right after they had signed the divorce agreement, she had told Auntie Mao that they were not divorcing.
He would definitely think that this was too much of a coincidence, but Ye Yuwei did not want to think about it anymore.
Her voice was soft and her eyes never left Auntie Mao.
Gu Juexi stood straight, with an expression that showed that he was in deep thought. No one knew what he was thinking about.
"CEO, Mr. Lu is waiting for you outside." PA Wen felt that Lu Qichuan was simply an angel sent from heaven to save him.
This situation was too depressing.
