“Then I’ll be leaving first. I’ll come by to visit you when I have time,” Xiao Yaojing said as she picked up her handbag, “Lu Qichuan, wait for me.”
Xiao Yaojing had to chase after him while on the way out. “Why are you leaving so quickly?”
Lu Qichuan opened his car door and looked at Xiao Yaojing who had just managed to catch up to him. “Do you have some time? I’ll buy you a drink.”
Xiao Yao stared blankly at him for a moment, as some inexplicable feelings surfaced in her heart. ‘Could this be what is known as jealousy?’
Lu Qichuan was getting himself drunk for Ye Yuwei’s sake.
“Sure, I have taken leave for today,” Xiao Yaojing said while crossing over to the other side of the car and opening the car door. As she got into the car, she caught a glimpse of Lu Qichuan, who was still looking at the direction of Gu Mansion.
Lu Qichuan took a deep breath and forced himself to retract his gaze. The little girl who had knelt beside him and crying all those years ago—he should really let her go.
While in Gu Mansion, Ye Yuwei, who had gone upstairs to her room, was actually thinking about Lu Qichuan’s words.
Gu Juexi took a risk out of desperation—because of her?
Instantly, Ye Yuwei’s heart that had finally calmed down after much difficulty became restless again. ‘It should not be like this.’
In the end, Bai Yuyan did not leave as a result of Madame Gu’s insistence.
When Gu Juexi went upstairs, his entire body carried a distinctive ominous aura.
The bedroom door was slammed hard.
Ye Yuwei abruptly raised her head and looked at Gu Juexi, who had just entered the room.
“What did Lu Qichuan come here for?” Gu Juexi asked as he entered the room holding his head in one hand.
Ye Yuwei paused for a moment. If she was not able to tell at this point, then it was not due to Gu Juexi’s superb acting, but rather, she was just too much of a fool.
“Yaojing was worried about me. Can’t he bring Yaojing over?” Ye Yuwei glared at Gu Juexi. “Return my phone to me. What you’re doing is unlawful imprisonment.”
Gu Juexi sneered, having not the slightest intention of returning Ye Yuwei’s phone to her.
Ye Yuwei retracted her outstretched hand. “Gu Juexi, why did you agree to Cheng Jie?”
Gu Juexi was loosening his tie. When he heard this sentence, he turned around and cast a glance at Ye Yuwei. “Afraid of me going to jail, or having objections?”
“I’ll be the one who has to go to jail for this. What does it have to do with you?” Ye Yuwei said an angrily.
In all honesty, Lu Qichuan’s words had really brought about extremely complicated feelings within Ye Yuwei. She did not need Gu Juexi to do anything for her because she could not afford to pay it back.
‘What does it have to do with you?’
When Gu Juexi heard this sentence, the act of the loosening his tie stopped as he turned around to look at Ye Yuwei, his gaze overcast.
‘Does this woman has a conscience?’
As Gu Juexi knew better than anyone else, that even if this was not his own plan, yet things have already progressed until this step, he would also make a compromise for Ye Yuwei’s sake—he was very clear about this point.
However, this woman said that she has nothing to do with him. ‘How could there be such an ignorant woman in this world?’
Ye Yuwei subconsciously took a step back, but still forced herself to speak straight to the point.
To find a way out of this predicament.
She just did not want to let herself be emotionally moved.
“Did I say anything wrong? I could go now to turn myself in. Gu Juexi, even I can’t bring you to court, then I’ll just report myself to court.” Ye Yuwei lifted her chin stubbornly, not allowing herself to have the slightest timidity.
Gu Juexi abruptly pulled the tie off his neck.
Ye Yuwei’s body trembled unconsciously, fearing that he would directly strangle her with the tie.
After Gu Juexi pulled off his tie, he looked at Ye Yuwei coldly. “Very good. Then I will just watch how Mrs. Gu intends to bring herself to court.”
Ye Yuwei’s slightly hid both her hands behind her body. It was as if, in this way she would be able to conceal her nervousness, and other people would not be able to discover her weakness.
