“Believe it or not, Ye Yuwei. I really like you,” Gu Juexi mumbled and clenched his fist, as if doing so would toughen him up and make his heart feel less empty.
“Thanks for teaching me how liking someone feels like, Ye Yuwei.”
But it is just too late now.
Gu Juexi was holding his phone in his right hand and the screen showed a message that Yu Jiangqing sent three minutes ago.
[Cheng Jie plans to take me somewhere. I have a feeling that he will bring me to their base and make me kill Helian with my own hands. We are running out of time, Boss.]
Just when Gu Juexi was about to go after Ye Yuwei, Yu Jiangqing sent the last straw that makes him give up Ye Yuwei completely.
Cheng Jie has declared war without giving them much time. He will take Yu Jiangqing to that place the day after tomorrow, which is within less than 48 hours from now.
They are running out of time. He got to know about Ye Yuwei for good too late, and he understood and accepted his feelings too late.
As soon as he realized he has fallen for Ye Yuwei, the girl walked out on him and he wasn’t left with the choice of making her stay.
Gu Juexi’s phone rang. He suppressed his feelings and lowered his head to look at his phone without any emotions.
“This is Bai Ying, Mr. Gu.” The other end of the line came the calm voice of a woman.
Ye Yuwei called Xiao Yaojing up after she left Gu Mansion to tell her that she will go to her place, and Xiao Yaojing welcomed her with open arms.
“Did Gu Juexi bully you again?” asked Xiao Yaojing protectively.
Ye Yuwei touched on her neck. The love bites were quite visible even after the concealer.
“No, he didn’t. My mother-in-law is back and she agreed to our divorce. We will file for the petition once Gu Juexi is free. I shouldn’t continue staying at his place in my situation, should I?” Ye Yuwei said in a lively tone to ease Xiao Yaojing’s mind.
“Alright then. What time will you be here?”
“In another half an hour. I can go over myself if you are not home,” said Ye Yuwei.
“Don’t worry about it, I am home,” Xiao Yaojing said and ended the call after telling Ye Yuwei to take care.
Ye Yuwei was standing in front of Gu Mansion trying to hail a taxi when a silver Volkswagen instead of the usual Maserati stopped in front of her. The car window was then wound down, showing a face that Ye Yuwei didn’t know.
“Have you got time, sister-in-law?” Instead of wearing the mask of Cheng Jie’s face, Yu Jiangqing showed up before Ye Yuwei in his own face.
Ye Yewei turned around and found herself the only one standing there.
“Are you talking to me?” Ye Yuwei asked curiously.
“Of course,” Yu Jiangqing replied with a smile on his face.
“But I don’t know you,” Ye Yuwei said and wanted to walk away.
“It won’t take long,” said Yu Jiangqing quickly, “my name is Yu Jiangqing, you might have heard about me.”
‘Yu Sha’er’s dead brother?’
Ye Yuwei gripped tightly on her luggage at the thought of it.
“Please don’t be worried, I am not a ghost,” Yu Jiangqing laughed and said.
Ye Yuwei looked at the man in the car. Humans could be scarier than ghosts nowadays, so this man is probably less scary if he really is dead.
“I am in the middle of something, how can I help you? Gu Juexi is at home so if you needed someone…”
“I came for you,” Yu Jiangqing interrupted Ye Yuwei, “You are the one I am looking for.”
