Her hand that was holding on the phone shook slightly. Ye Yuwei could feel the burning pain on her cheek once again.
"Mom, don't worry about me. Grandma treats me very well. She knows that I am weak and had asked the servants to cook lots of nutritious food for me." Stroking her swollen cheek, she whispered.
Wenjie paused for a moment and continued.
"When I feel better, I will return to China and accompany you." Butler Kim had already told Wenjie everything that had happened to Ye Yuwei. Wenjie knew very well how Madame Gu treated her. However, Ye Yuwei lied to her in order to comfort her. She was such a fool.
"I am alright, Mom. The only thing you need to do is to rest well and take good care of your health." Ye Yuwei comforted Wenjiie as she smiled.
Ye Yuwei hung up the phone after talking for a while. She turned her head around only to see Gu Juexi who was standing at the door. Her body shook a little in shock but she quickly regained her composure and stared him in his eyes.
"I'm surprised that you don't even blink your eyes when you tell a lie." Leaning against the door, Gu Juexi looked at Ye Yuwei with a faint smile
Little did Ye Yuwei know that Gu Juexi actually felt bad hearing her words and that his heart was broken.
Her fingers subconsciously scratched on the back of her phone and her eyes were staring at him resolutely.
"Mr. Gu, you knew this a long time ago didn't you? I am a big liar. Do you feel like you've just got cheated by me?" Ye Yuwei said resolutely.
Gu Juexi looked at the woman before his eyes. He knew that there were not many things that she truly cherished in this world. But she would protect every one of it at all cost.
Gu Juexi was one of the people she cared for besides Wenjie. But now, he was replaced by Xiao Yaojing. He had lost to a woman.
"Mrs. Gu is truly a good actor." Gu Juexi gritted his teeth and turned to leave the lounge.
Ye Yuwei took a deep breath. A strange feeling aroused within her, stung by his cynical words. She trembled, trying hard to suppress the feeling that should not have existed a long time ago.
When Yu Yuwei regained her composure, she walked out of the lounge and buried herself in the report.
"Get me a coffee," Gu Juexi suddenly said.
"Your secretary is sitting outside." Slightly startled, Ye Yuwei answered coolly.
"I am the reason you learned how to brew coffee, right?" Gu Juexi retorted in an indifferent tone.
Ye Yuwei tightened her grip on the pen and her knuckles turned white.
It was because of Gu Juexi that she learned how to brew coffee. But she had never got the chance to make him coffee for he would never spare a glance at the coffee that she made.
Presently, it had become something that boosted his ego. He was truly ruthless. Ye Yuwei would never know the bottom line of his cruelty as he would extend it time and time again.
Ye Yuwei loosened her grip on the pen and looked up at Gu Juexi who was beaming in pride.
