Ye Yuwei lowered her head; she had never encountered such a complex person before.
“Alright, Mom.” Ye Yuwei whispered.
“Let’s finish eating and then settle the issue with Juexi after this.” Wen Jie heaved a sigh and continued eating.
‘Settle the issue—as in divorce?’ Annoyed with her words, Gu Juexi raised his head to stare at Wen Jie.
“Mom, I will settle this,” Gu Juexi stated.
Ye Yuwei sank into silence. She knew Gu Juexi was referring to the two-month promise but she wished that she could end this immediately.
Wen Jie turned to look at Ye Yuwei.
“You should rest after your meal.”
Ye Yuwei knew that meant Wen Jie wanted to talk to Gu Juexi privately. She put her chopsticks down and went upstairs.
“You don’t love her.” Only after Ye Yuwei left did Wen Jie speak, turning to Gu Juexi.
“How about Gu Tianmu, does he love you?” In a fit of annoyance, Gu Juexi put his chopsticks down and leaned back in his chair.
“I don’t love him. He can’t hurt me,” Wen Jie answered bluntly.
“I don’t get it. I did not do anything wrong to Ye Yuwei, why should I divorce her?” Gu Juexi paused then stretched his arms.
“What does marriage mean to you? Loyalty?” Wen Jie leaned back in her chair as well, staring at her son in disappointment. She was scolding herself internally at his reaction.
“What more does she want?” Gu Juexi snapped, looking away.
“I never cheated on her. I will guide my child properly; I won’t let him be like me. Isn’t that enough?”
“That’s all? So Ye Yuwei is just a tool for child delivery? With no child, you can just leave her alone in the house for three years and then you only come home because you don’t want your child to live the same life as you? You are even worse than your father.”
Gu Juexi swept the plates and chopsticks off the table angrily as soon as Wen Jie finished speaking.
Seeing this, the corner of Wen Jie’s mouth curved upward, sadness tugging at her heart.
“Mom, there was nothing wrong with Gu Tianmu and Gu Zhenjiang’s actions but when it comes to me, everything is wrong. How is it none of you told me before that this is wrong?” Gu Juexi said indignantly as he stood up, taking a deep breath as he stared at Wen Jie.
Hearing Gu Juexi, Wen Jie’s body trembled violently. She felt emotions whirling within her and could not help but close her eyes. In the darkness, the sound of Gu Juexi’s footsteps eventually faded away.
“Mistress.” Xiao Yuan walked into the room and placed a shawl around Wen Jie.
“He is right; he was not taught right from wrong but in the end, I blamed it all on him. Who am I to criticize him?” Wen Jie said with a sorrowful smile, tears streaming down her face.
“How can I destroy my grandchild? The divorce isn’t something bad. At least I have nothing to worry about after this.” Wen Jie held onto the table as she stood up but she was too weak and nearly fell down.
“Mistress, don’t rush.” Xiao Yuan held her up as they walked away.
“Young Master learned that what he did was wrong. In fact, he truly cares for Young Mistress.”
