PA Wen had already left Ye Yuwei's bag in their room and gone home, when Gu Juexi and Ye Yuwei returned to their room.
Ye Yuwei entered the room and sat down on the bed. "Didn't you just offend the old mistress downstairs?"
"You can grill me with questions now, but a cat got your tongue earlier?" Gu Juexi laughed.
Ye Yuwei was speechless.
She merely did not want to refute the words of an old lady.
"But this is also good."
Gu Juexi did not say this sentence out loud. Therefore, Ye Yuwei did not hear clearly what he had just said. However, she did not take the initiative to ask him to repeat his sentence.
"Mr. Gu, you have seen it clearly for yourself. The old mistress does not like me at all," Ye Yuwei said as a matter of fact. What she really meant was, 'Since even grandma doesn't like me, can I leave now?'
Gu Juexi initially wanted to change his clothes, but when he heard Ye Yuwei's words, he started unbuttoning his shirt as he walked toward Ye Yuwei.
Ye Yuwei was stunned and took a step back subconsciously.
Gu Juexi walked towards the bed and pressed down his hands on Ye Yuwei's sides, forcing her to lie down.
"Then bring out Mrs. Gu's ability to make everyone like you. Isn't this a unique skill of yours? Lu Qichuan, Qian Yikun, and even PA Wen. Don't they all speak up for you all the time?"
Ye Yuwei smacked her lips together and glared bitterly at Gu Juexi.
This was quite a smear to her reputation.
After he had finished his speech, he got up and looked at Ye Yuwei who was lying on the bed. He said coldly, "I believe that Mrs. Gu can do it."
She sank her teeth into her bottom lip and she could taste the blood on her lips.
Ye Yuwei looked coldly at Gu Juexi who was standing in front of the closet and changing out of his clothes. She clenched her fist tightly and said, "If Mr. Gu thinks that I am so unruly, then why are you holding on to me so desperately?"
Gu Juexi changed into his home clothes and turned around to look at Ye Yuwei who was staring back at him. "Because I am unhappy."
'I am unhappy that you have someone else in your mind, I am unhappy that everyone thinks that you are good, I am unhappy that you show a happy and smiling face to everyone and I am unhappy that I am no longer the only person that you look at anymore.'
Ye Yuwei took a deep breath. She felt as if someone had stabbed her in the chest. "Do you hate me so much, just because I agreed to marry you in the past?"
Gu Juexi was stunned for a moment and the expression on his face changed immediately.
"Maybe." Gu Juexi turned around and left the room.
He slammed the door behind him, but Ye Yuwei was no longer afraid.
After Gu Juexi left the room, he went straight into his study room. Bai Yuyan who had just finished packing her luggage, heard the commotion upstairs and subconsciously curled her lips into a smile.
It seemed like the both of them were not really on such good terms as they tried to make it out to be.
She still had a chance then. Doesn't she?
Ye Yuwei was left alone in the bedroom. She could feel the position of her chest rising and falling due to her heavy breathing. It was really difficult for her to compete with Gu Juexi's abnormal behavior.
Ye Yuwei could clearly remember that when she had taken revenge against Yu Sha'er, Gu Juexi had said that she was too stupid.
She admitted that if it was not for Gu Juexi, she might have lost miserably then.
Today, when she had been reprimanded by the old mistress, she could not do anything although she was furious.
Ye Yuwei clasped her hands tightly together. She cannot continue acting like this.
[Ye Yuwei, since you do not want to be Mrs. Gu, I will set you free and wait for the day where you can rise like a butterfly.]
His words rang in her thoughts and she had a firm look in her eyes.
One of these days, she would prove to Gu Juexi that with or without him, she would be able to hold up the sky for her own child.
