"Ye Yuwei, when you kept hounding me back then, did you ever think of letting me off? You have two options now. You go home with me or your friend would not only lose her job, but also this house." Each word that Gu Juexi said was icy and bone piercing.
"Gu Juexi, you…"
PA Wen held his head as he thought to himself. 'CEO, you are a thirty-two-year-old adult, do you truly think you are a teenager to threaten others with such trick?'
In truth, Gu Juexi did not even have the mentality of an eighteen-year-old when it came to managing relationships. All he wanted was to get Ye Yuwei home—not caring about the process.
Ye Yuwei's chest was heaving as she seethed with exasperation.
"Gu Juexi, all you want is a divorce, isn't it?" Her tone displayed her feelings entirely.
Gu Juexi stepped forward and Ye Yuwei quickly stopped Xiao Yaojing who nearly laid her hands on Gu Juexi. She knew that Xiao Yaojing was good at Taekwondo but Gu Juexi used to be part of the special forces. Hence, Xiao Yaojing was naturally no match for him.
Looking at Gu Juexi who was slowly approaching, Ye Yuwei's breath turned rapid and shallow. She shook abruptly as her eyes stared at his slender fingers that were untying the knot of the ribbon on her body.
"Ye Yuwei, you are the one who asked for a divorce. Why do you think you are capable of controlling my marriage? You are the one who requested for both marriage and divorce. What about my face?" Gu Juexi tied the ribbon meticulously as if holding a precious treasure. The silky ribbon had turned into a beautiful bow in his hands. Seeing this, Ye Yuwei was terribly tense.
Hearing Gu Juexi's words, PA Wen cursed inwardly. 'What is the value of "face" for an adult? Are you still a kid?'
"Gu Juexi, don't break your promise. You agreed to divorce earlier," Ye Yuwei reminded Gu Juexi but averted her gaze.
Gu Juexi was pleased with the bow he tied for Ye Yuwei and took a step backward. After he was done observing his masterpiece, Gu Juexi responded.
"I broke my promise?" Gu Juexi went into deep contemplation. He pondered if he had truly broken any promise with the things he did now.
"Did I say it wrong or could it be Mr. Gu has fallen in love with me?" Ye Yuwei felt a great relief after he stepped back.
"Pfft." Looking at Ye Yuwei who was beaming in pride, Gu Juexi merely sneered and did not utter a word.
"Well, why are you not responding? Auntie Mao told me yesterday that a marriage without love is like a mass grave. Or could it be Mr. Gu likes to stay in a mass grave? I am just a stranger who owns a marriage certificate. It would not be hard for you to get another stranger." Each word that Ye Yuwei said was ear piercing and ruthless.
Slightly startled, PA Wen fixed his gaze at Gu Juexi, whose face had darkened. PA Wen naturally knew the meaning of a stranger. But whether or not what Ye Yuwei said was real to Gu Juexi, he would never accept this.
