Hearing this, Ye Yuwei jumped out of bed and went straight to the bathroom. Standing outside, Gu Juexi heard her getting ready and shook his head in wonder. Ye Yuwei was truly beyond what he could handle.
Ye Yuwei walked down the stairs as soon as she freshened up, completely ignoring Gu Juexi.
Ye Yuwei did not speak to Gu Juexi on the way to Gu Mansion either, acting as if he didn’t exist. Gu Juexi wanted to talk to Ye Yuwei but every time he had the words in his head, he couldn’t say them out loud.
This was the first time Gu Juexi had run out of words. Ye Yuwei was the only person in the world who was capable of rendering him speechless.
The car lapsed into silence all the way to Gu Mansion. As soon as the car arrived at Gu Mansion, Ye Yuwei unbuckled her seatbelt and got out of the car.
There were a few servants busy doing chores in the living room. Ye Yuwei quickly went to Wen Jie’s room. Gu Juexi walked after her casually, expression thunderous.
When Ye Yuwei walked into the room, Wen Jie had just woken up and was reaching for a cup on the table. Seeing this, Ye Yuwei rushed over and helped her get the cup of warm water.
Slightly startled, Wen Jie took a sip of warm water then smiled.
“Why are you here so early?”
Ye Yuwei could no longer hold back the grief in her heart and burst into tears.
Ye Yuwei helped Wen Jie put the cup back on the table. She was held in a warm embrace when she turned to look at Wen Jie.
“I know you are upset. You can cry now, no one would know,” Wen Jie murmured gently as she stroked Ye Yuwei’s hair.
“Mom…” Ye Yuwei buried her head in Wen Jie’s neck and sobbed, letting out the agony that she had kept inside all these years.
Wen Jie did not say a word, just patted her back gently and stroked her hair.
At the time, Gu Juexi was standing at the door, but he did not enter the room. Hearing Ye Yuwei cry like that felt like someone had stabbed his heart, breaking it apart.
No one knew how long Ye Yuwei had cried. When she raised her head to look at Wen Jie, her eyes were swollen.
“If only I knew the consequences, I would have made you my goddaughter instead,” Wen Jie said regretfully, carefully wiping the tears off Ye Yuwei’s face.
Ye Yuwei shook her head. She was feeling a bit better.
“Mom, regardless of the things that happen between Gu Juexi and I, I will be your daughter for the rest of my life,” Ye Yuwei whispered.
“Ye Yuwei, Mom is still sick, can you stop talking about this?” Gu Juexi snarled, anger flaring at her words as he stormed into the room.
Still seated next to Wen Jie, Ye Yuwei did not look at Gu Juexi. As a woman, Wen Jie knew Ye Yuwei very well. Nothing was more lamentable than a dead heart. Gu Juexi had truly lost Ye Yuwei.
“Alright,” Wen Jie answered softly.
“Mom…” Dumbfounded, Gu Juexi could not believe what he had just heard. He had no idea why Wen Jie would agree with Ye Yuwei.
