Her icy glare made Gu Juexi stand where he was.
Ye Yuwei smiled. "Why? Was the insult not harsh enough? Do you want to insult me more?"
Gu Juexi closed the door behind him, making the office a confined space. As if this would make the space belong to only the two of them and no one else.
Ye Yuwei took a deep breath as the man came closer. She tried her best to not step back and to defend her pride.
"What do you want?" asked Ye Yuwei, with restraint and sarcasm in her voice.
Gu Juexi's face turned ghastly after sensing the sarcasm in Ye Yuwei's voice. "Ye Yuwei, do you not have work ethics?"
Ye Yuwei tightened her grip on the table. "If by work ethics you mean standing there and enduring insults, I rather not have work ethics. Please fire me for being unethical."
It then came to Ye Yuwei that she would not have to wait for the notice period to pass if she was fired. She could leave the place right away if she was fired.
Having that in mind, Ye Yuwei looked at Gu Juexi and suggested, "Mr. Gu, why don't you fire me?"
Gu Juexi did not fail to capture the light in Ye Yuwei's eyes. It was light of excitement to Ye Yuwei, but it looked like a signal of how Ye Yuwei could not wait to leave him.
This naturally infuriated him. Gu Juexi stormed toward Ye Yuwei and grabbed her wrist, forcing her to lean back to the table.
Refusing to cry out, Ye Yuwei endured the pain on her wrist. "You look ugly while you are jealous, Mr. Gu."
Gu Juexi burst out into laughter. "Me? Jealous? Ye Yuwei, you really should look at yourself and think again if you are worth my jealousy," said Gu Juexi disdainfully.
Ye Yuwei's wrist turned stiff from Gu Juexi's grip, but she told herself to bear with it. "Do you remember how you looked at me repulsively just because I was afraid of being late to your event and showed up at your office in my uniform?"
Gu Juexi frowned and it could not be more obvious that he did not remember.
Ye Yuwei saw how he looked and knew that he did not remember. She then used some force to get Gu Juexi's hand off her wrist.
Looking at the man who looked so lost, Ye Yuwei has to admit that attitude decides a person's perspective. She was obsessed with Gu Juexi back then, so everything he did was right to her. Even though it made her suffer, she blamed herself for it. But now… he only looked like a crazy person to her.
Someone knocked at the door.
"Come in!" said Gu Juexi with rage in his voice.
PA Wen entered the room and looked at Ye Yuwei as he passed the phone to Gu Juexi. "It's Mistress," said PA Wen.
Ye Yuwei looked up to see the man taking over the phone. That was Gu Juexi's grandmother. She had only met her once, but the old lady did not seem to like her. She did not even say a word to her during their last meeting.
Gu Juexi took a glance at Ye Yuwei as he took over the phone.
PA Wen too looked at Ye Yuwei and shook his head slightly, as if telling her to bear with it.
Ye Yuwei smiled with resignation. She could not bear with it anymore. She was not the Ye Yuwei that she once was.
