Gu Juexi slammed his fist against the steering wheel, as if he wanted to release all his pent up emotions.
Ye Yuwei shut her eyes and waited for the piercing sound to disappear. Only then did she slowly open her eyes again.
She did not know why Gu Juexi had this sudden outburst, but it helped the bitterness in her heart fade away.
What had she been thinking?
Just because he had protected her in front of the reporters, she had forgotten all the harsh lessons given to her before?
‘Ye Yuwei, have you forgotten?
‘He was the one who said it himself, what do you have that’s worth him caring for?’
Ye Yuwei took a deep breath and buried those forbidden thoughts deep in her heart.
“Gu Juexi, I know there’s no need for me to say it. With your abilities, nothing will happen to you. Nobody can find out that there’s a problem with that sum of money.”
“So?” Gu Juexi replied.
Ye Yuwei clenched her hands tightly, pondering the thin line between the law and freedom.
She lowered her head and a tear fell onto the wound on her finger that had been slowly turning darker.
Disregard the law and fight for her own freedom?
A few billion was about to be wired out of the country by Cheng Jie.
How different was that from robbery?
But to continue staying beside Gu Juexi?
She was really afraid. Afraid that she would make the same mistakes again.
Gu Juexi was waiting for Ye Yuwei’s answer. Waiting for her choice.
Ye Yuwei raised her head and stared directly into Gu Juexi’s eyes.
“So I will turn myself in. At least I’ll be able to drag Cheng Jie down with me.”
“What a noble idea,” Gu Juexi replied sarcastically.
Ye Yuwei really could not decipher Gu Juexi’s thoughts.
“What do you mean?”
“I’m complimenting you. Couldn’t you tell?” Gu Juexi responded carelessly.
Really, she could not tell.
Ye Yuwei took another deep breath, not knowing how they had ended up in this state from the abortion just now.
“Why would you want to condone a criminal?” Ye Yuwei retaliated.
In truth, she wanted to confirm something.
She wanted to know whether he really had another plan.
To find a reasonable explanation that he was not somebody like that.
Gu Juexi looked at Ye Yuwei. The rain outside was pouring.
“Why don’t you want to keep him?” Gu Juexi asked her softly.
Silence filled the car once more. Ye Yuwei looked outside the window.
Gu Juexi was still gently pounding the steering wheel, no intention to start driving.
“Two months,” Gu Juexi suddenly said without an explanation. Just these two words.
The sound of rain outside filled the car. Ye Yuwei still could not understand the man sitting next to her.
She could not understand his sudden comment even more.
In a hotel suite.
Cheng Jie sat on the sofa, listening to someone beside him.
That person was not just anyone; it was a helper from Gu Juexi’s home.
“There really is a better show after that one,” Cheng Jie laughed.
“I did say that Gu Juexi would be destroyed by that woman’s hands sooner or later, ” Cheng Jie smiled as he reached out to switch on the TV. On the screen was footage of a dark dungeon cell. A man was sitting on a stool right in the middle of it, heavy chains weighing down his legs and wrists.
“The latest news is quite good, isn’t it?” Cheng Jie chuckled as he asked the man sitting inside.
The man raised his head. Long hair covered his eyes and his skin was abnormally pale due to years of being away from sunlight.
