Gu Juexi closed his eyes again. No one could tell what was on his mind.
Gu Juexi has already left the room after Ye Yuwei washed up, and there was still the stench of alcohol in the room.
Ye Yuwei opened the windows to let the odor out. As she did so, she looked down from the window and held tight on the window sill.
“You can’t get down from there.” Ye Yuwei jumped when she heard Gu Juexi’s voice suddenly and stood close against the window. She did think of going down from the window for one second, and that was probably why she jumped when Gu Juexi said what was on her mind out loud.
Ye Yuwei touched on her stomach gently and smiled. She was not alone anymore.
Ye Yuwei thought to herself and walked toward Gu Juexi with her head high and her chest out. “Don’t overthink. Or are you too afraid of me leaving?” Ye Yuwei sneered.
Yes, he was afraid.
He was afraid that no one would take care of this woman if he died.
Gu Juexi looked at Ye Yuwei who walked to him and put a smile on his face. He bent over and said with alcohol breath, “Please be as eloquent when you see them later. Not just keep quiet and accept whatever they say,” said Gu Juexi with a cold smile then left the room.
Ye Yuwei put away the haughty look that she faked the moment Gu Juexi left the room and began to look upset as she thought about the people that she had to face.
The old mistress and Bai Yuyan were already waiting for breakfast when Ye Yuwei went downstairs. So was Gu Juexi.
Bai Yuyan was passing a bowl of soup for hangovers to Gu Juexi, and her virtuous look was an eyesore.
Gu Juexi did not take over the soup that Bai Yuyan passed to him. He looked at Ye Yuwei who just got downstairs and sat down beside him emotionlessly, and was impressed that she did not run away this time.
“Who do you think you are? Everyone was waiting for you,” the old mistress grumbled resentfully.
A servant quickly put a bowl and chopsticks in front of Ye Yuwei and left.
Ye Yuwei picked up her chopsticks and looked at Bai Yuyan who was sitting opposite to her across the table smiling complacently.
[“You thought you would just stay out of this, but are you sure that others would think the same? Even if there is no evidence, you have all the right to defend yourself if it really wasn’t you.”]
‘Why do you let her walk all over you? You don’t owe her.’
Ye Yuwei smiled and said softly, “Sorry Grandma. I think I was fatigued from the pregnancy and overslept.”
The atmosphere at the dining table became awkward after what Ye Yuwei said, except Gu Juexi who appeared to be in a good mood.
The old mistress had a funny look when Ye Yuwei called her “grandma”. Even Bai Yuyan was surprised at what Ye Yuwei said. The complacent look on her face faded while she looked at Ye Yuwei with her lips pursed.
Ye Yuwei looked at their reactions and began to dig in.
“Who did you call “grandma”?” the old mistress banged her chopsticks on the table and asked angrily.
Ye Yuwei looked at Gu Juexi who appeared to have kept himself out of the feud. She looked down, and the veins on her hand holding the chopsticks bulged.
‘Ye Yuwei, no one can help you aside from yourself, no one!’
