At noon, Butler Kim came to replace Ye Yuwei in watching Auntie Mao so that she could go have lunch.
Although she did not feel at ease leaving Auntie Mao alone, she was still dragged off by Xiao Yaojing.
"Even if you want to take care of Auntie Mao, you still need to take care of yourself first," Xiao Yaojing said as she pulled Ye Yuwei along. "Take a look at how you have tortured yourself all this while. You have finally gotten divorced, but what's the point if you don't care for yourself?"
Ye Yuwei was motivated by Xiao Yaojing's words.
"You are right. I have finally gotten what I had always wanted. I can't fall at this moment." Ye Yuwei took a deep breath as she walked out with Xiao Yaojing. "I have to find a new job, but I might have to leave B City."
"Why?" Xiao Yaojing was shocked by her words. "Why do you have to leave the city that you grew up in because of a scumbag like that?"
"Big sister, this is not a matter of who has more guts. Do you think there will be any company in B City who would want to hire me? I am the soon to be ex-wife of the CEO of Gu Enterprise. He will not let me off that easily."
"Wow, you are quite a rational person now. You must have really been blind in the past, when you insisted on marrying Gu Juexi no matter what happened," Xiao Yaojing remarked sarcastically.
Ye Yuwei was speechless after the verbal attack by Xiao Yaojing.
"Who… who would not have encountered a few scumbags in their life?" Ye Yuwei said. "I will leave after I get the divorce agreement notarized. If it is possible, I would like to go to the mountains to teach."
Xiao Yaojing laughed but did not state any more of her personal opinion. She held onto Ye Yuwei's arm as they went off to find food.
Ye Yuwei took a deep breath. This time it was real—it really ended.
Right after Ye Yuwei and Xiao Yaojing left, Auntie Mao woke up and opened her eyes. She did not look as weak as she did before she rested.
Auntie Mao looked around her carefully. "The young mistress has left?"
Butler Kim helped Auntie Mao up and placed a pillow behind her back. "Auntie Mao, you are already so old. If anything would have happened to you, how do you expect me to explain this to our madam?"
Everyone in Gu Mansion knew that Auntie Mao had come here with Gu Juexi's mother from her maiden home. Therefore, the madam really trusted Auntie Mao, and that was why she had entrusted Gu Juexi into her care.
If something unexpected would have happened to Auntie Mao, no one would be able to hold back the madam's anger.
Auntie Mao ignored his words and said, "They are going to be divorced soon. Did you switch the medicine that I asked you to?"
"I already switched it, but getting pregnant is not like planting a cabbage seed. It is not something that would grow if you just water it diligently," Butler Kim said. "I think that there is an eighty percent chance that the young mistress did not get pregnant. Moreover, these times have been so trying—do you think she would have gotten pregnant?"
Some thoughts started forming in Auntie Mao's mind. Ye Yuwei did not look like she was expecting a child.
"No, this can't be it. They need a child so that they will stay. This will not work. They have to expect a child quickly," Auntie Mao said, waving her hands while thinking of a solution.
"Auntie Mao, maybe you should give up now. I can understand how the young mistress is feeling. She has already hardened her heart—she is determined to leave and she no longer has any feelings for the young master."
"What do you mean she no longer has feelings for him? Everything has not been decided yet, and she has already given up on him? An old lady like me should die first!" Auntie Mao said as she lay down seething.
Butler Kim was also helpless. He liked Ye Yuwei—he liked their young mistress, but Gu Juexi always acted overboard, so what could he do?
