Gu Juexi got even more annoyed after Ye Yuwei flung off his hand.
“So you just stand there and take the blame like an idiot? All you said was that it wasn’t you and you said it so unconfidently!” said Gu Juexi standing in front of Ye Yuwei.
Ye Yuwei took a deep breath and calmed her mind. “You taught me these, Mr. Gu. I used to explain everything, but did you listen? You told me not to waste my time if I have no evidence. Isn’t that what you said?” said Ye Yuwei as she walked closer to Gu Juexi.
But Gu Juexi was not her, so he did not back off and continued to stay where he was.
When Ye Yuwei stood right in front of him, Gu Juexi reached out to hold her chin, bent over, and said to the woman who sent herself to him, “Remember this, Ye Yuwei. Even if there is no evidence, you have all the right to defend yourself if it really wasn’t you. Not just stand there and let people point their fingers at you while you take it silently.”
Gu Juexi let go of Ye Yuwei’s chin after what he said and then walked past her to leave the room. He was very disappointed with her, and even more so as the time was running out. What if he never comes back? What would she do then?
Ye Yuwei stood where she was and listened to Gu Juexi’s harsh words. And she had to admit that what he said made sense. Everything she did just seem wrong to him. Whether she explained herself or kept quiet about what happened, they just seemed wrong to him.
Because her being Ye Yuwei was already wrong to begin with.
She heard the sound of car engine igniting not long after Gu Juexi left—it sounded like he went out again.
Ye Yuwei sat down at the side of her bed trying to figure out what to do with her situation now. Auntie Mao was still in the hospital and she could not reach Xiao Yaojing. And Mom, she must not know what happened these days.
What should she do?
Ye Yuwei could not help but admit that Gu Juexi was right. The Ye Yuwei now was just annoyingly stupid. Just as she thought, Bai Yuyan with a smile on her pale face showed up at Ye Yuwei’s door.
Ye Yuwei’s face sank a little but she hid it quickly and looked at Bai Yuyan ghastly. “What are you doing here?”
Bai Yuyan closed the door behind her and leaned against it as she looked at Ye Yuwei.
“You are still as dumb after all these years, Ye Yuwei,” Bai Yuyan laughed and said, “You still like to keep quiet when wrongfully blamed, how stupid!”
“You did it?” Ye Yuwei turned around and looked at Bu Yuyan in disbelief and rage.
“So what if I did it? You never learn from your lessons. It’s every man for himself in this world,” said Bai Yuyan as she stood up straight and walked toward Ye Yuwei. “Do you think Gu Juexi loves you so much just because he always stands by you? You have no idea and will never understand what kind of person Gu Juexi is.”
Ye Yuwei looked at Bai Yuyan who was getting closer and tried her best not to look timid. “So what? What does it have to do with you?”
“I am just trying to remind you. Believe it or not, Gu Juexi is more than what you see. He has his reasons for how he treats people. Just like how he allowed me to stay here,” Bai Yuyan smiled, paused for a while and then continued, “He agreed to let me stay even though he hates me, because he saw something on me that he wants. He saw it on you too now that he is treating you so well. Remember how nice he was to Yu Sha’er and how he took her everything away? Maybe you are the second Yu Sha’er.”
