All these years, he had his heart set on revenge. He had never thought about whether his life was on the right track.
When Ye Yuwei had mentioned ‘divorce’ to him, he had thought the idea ridiculous.
Yet he had lost control of his emotions more in the last two months than he had in the past thirty years. That was really not good.
He had somehow fallen in love with this woman named Ye Yuwei.
And now he was hesitating to take his revenge.
Ye Yuwei’s eyelashes were so long. Gu Juexi could count them individually as he whispered, “When I am dead and gone, you can have the freedom you always wanted.”
His phone vibrated again. This time the call was from an unknown number.
Gu Jue swiped the screen to unlock his phone.
“The data report has been submitted to the Securities Regulatory Commission. Cheng Jie’s data report which was used to threaten you is sufficient to destroy him.” A man said excitedly from the other side of the call.
Gu Juexi was not that excited, however.
“Boss, aren’t you happy?” Perhaps Gu Juexi’s reaction had been too calm, the person he was speaking to sounded worried.
Gu Juexi propped his body up with one arm, his gaze still on Ye Yuwei. “Should this matter come to light, it would indeed destroy his reputation—but what I want is his life.”
“Boss, as long as the cooperation data reaches 30%, his criminal charges will be enough for a death penalty.” The person on the other line said.
How could the sly old fox allow himself to be sentenced to a death penalty?
What he wanted was the debt of blood to be paid with Cheng Jie’s life.
“Continue monitoring the SRC 1 . If any of Cheng Jie’s lackeys are there, you may look for Lu Qichuan when necessary. He will know what to do to destroy him with the criminal charges,” Gu Juexi said menacingly. He saw Yuwei wrinkling her brow and knew that she would wake up soon.
“Okay, got it. But, Boss—”
“Get on with your work,” Gu Juexi cut him off and ended the call without waiting for a response.
When Ye Yuwei opened her eyes, she was still in the apartment which she had been in before. And lying beside her was Gu Juexi.
This was the second time she had lost consciousness at Gu Juexi’s side.
Gu Juexi reached out and pinched her cheek, forcing her to look at him.
Ye Yuwei stared at him because of the pain, but there was no emotion in her eyes.
“Speak.” Gu Juexi had always been irritated by her quiet demeanor—he did not like the silent Ye Yuwei.
He didn’t like it one bit.
Ye Yuwei still did not open her mouth. She immediately closed her eyes as if trying to avoid seeing him.
Gu Juexi felt aggravated by Ye Yuwei’s indifferent attitude and could not help but pinch her harder. Ye Yuwei’s cheek was becoming red, but she did not make any sound.
Feeling flustered and exasperated, Gu Juexi let go of her and stretched his body. He then got up and walked out.
He was afraid that if he did not leave, he would be so annoyed with Ye Yuwei’s attitude that he would kill her.
After Gu Juexi left, Ye Yuwei slowly got up and massaged her aching cheek.
Her mind was somewhat blank, as if the recent events had utterly confused her.
But deep down she knew that the outcome of these events might not be what she wanted.
What Gu Juexi wanted to do was beyond her understanding.
And yet, she only wanted a divorce.
