When Ye Yuwei heard Gu Juexi's response, she spoke in disbelief, "You knew about this earlier?"
This was why he chose to bring her out at this time, and also why he chose to let her quit at this time.
'But this is—'
"On this road, no one is innocent," Gu Juexi faintly answered, as if he did not care about the matter at all.
"This is illegal!" Ye Yuwei screamed. "These numbers far exceed the proportion allowed by the law. Gu Juexi, do you actually understand this?"
Gu Juexi finally put down the script in his hand and looked at Ye Yuwei with a smile. "Concerned about me?"
"Gu Juexi, I am very serious. When the time comes, these data could be used as evidence to send you to jail." Ye Yuwei said as she felt more and more apprehensive.
"Nobody will know if you don't say anything." Gu Juexi said as he continued to smile.
His demeanor was calm as if this matter had nothing to do with him.
Ye Yuwei looked at him with incredulity. No matter how she looked at it, she would never have expected Gu Juexi to actually do this kind of thing.
"Gu Juexi, you are money laundering." Ye Yuwei said through gritted teeth, "This is illegal."
Gu Juexi reached out to grab Ye Yuwei's wrist and directly pulled her into his embrace before sitting down.
"Let me go! You let go of me!" Ye Yuwei yelled furiously.
Gu Juexi hugged her tightly. "As long as you don't say anything, by the time this project has been completed, no one will ever know." Gu Juexi said as he planted a kiss on Ye Yuwei's ear.
All of a sudden, Ye Yuwei's heart turned cold.
She knew that Gu Juexi was ill-tempered, but she would never have thought that Gu Juexi would do this kind of thing.
"Gu Juexi, you could still stop now. Just hand in the documents, just—"
"It's too late." Gu Juexi whispered as he planted another kiss on Ye Yuwei's ear. "Mrs. Gu, it is already too late for everything. What you have to do now is to act like you don't know anything and continue to be 'Mrs. Gu'."
Gu Juexi's voice was soft, but Ye Yuwei knew that this was a threat—he was threatening her.
Ye Yuwei's body was unconsciously shaking.
The man behind her was neither Gu Juexi nor the Uncle Army clad in military uniform who had rescued her.
Rather, he was the demon—a demon who had crossed the boundary of the law.
Ye Yuwei's whole being was engulfed with a chill brought about by this kind of fear. She could not really hear whatever Gu Juexi was saying into her ear.
This kind of fear was like a huge net, firmly keeping her trapped within it; no matter how much she struggled, she could not make a way out of it.
[The road ahead was very dark—so dark she that could not see the way out.
Next to her ear was a whistling sound of the wind—she remembered that this was daytime in August and yet, this wind could actually blow through her bone marrow, causing her to feel the chill seeping deep into her bones.'
On the road ahead was Gu Juexi—it was Gu Juexi and Cheng Jie together, and Gu Juexi was following Cheng Jie step-by-step towards the edge of the cliff.'
No, it shouldn't be like this.
She wanted to call out; wanted to ask Gu Juexi not to go forward anymore, but she couldn't make any sound. She could only watch helplessly at Gu Juexi as he walked step-by-step into the abyss.]
"Don't—" Ye Yuwei suddenly woke up, her body drenched in cold sweat.
The room was dim. She couldn't really see where she was.
"Gu Juexi, Gu Juexi—" Ye Yuwei shouted. She immediately lifted the quilt and got out of bed. Her nightgown was stuck onto her body due to her sweat. She ran out without even wearing any shoes.
"Gu Juexi, Gu Juexi—" Ye Yuwei pushed open the door to go out. Standing by the door was Butler Kim.
