Xiao Yaojing misunderstood Ye Yuwei’s meaning and demanded, “Do you still like that womanizer? Were you actually never serious about divorcing him?”
Xiao Yaojing’s agitation made Ye Yuwei frown. “I don’t mean that, I just–” Ye Yuwei thought that this was a big issue and one she still could not figure out, so she did not elaborate any further. “In any case, I must be divorced from Gu Juexi. So you don’t have to worry.”
“You had better.” Xiao Yaojing snorted.
Ye Yuwei had found the marriage certificate but it seemed that Gu Juexi would not be making a trip with her to the Civil Affairs Bureau.
When he left, it was as if he would waste his money by doing so.
After Gu Juexi left, he did not go to the company but returned home instead. There were some things that he needed to solve before leaving. As for the divorce, if he couldn’t return, then the marriage would naturally be ineffective.
If he could come back, then why should he divorce her?
It wasn’t as if he was crazy.
Gu Juexi went to Madame Gu’s room, where she was still yelling at him for being unfilial.
Gu Juexi didn’t care. He just put the documents in his hand and a ticket on Madame Gu’s bed.
Madame Gu looked down and asked abruptly, “What do you mean by this?”
“I shall no longer have any relationship with the Gu family whatsoever. Also, you should leave my house. My mother won’t be going back either. You may go live with your son if you want.” Gu Juexi’s voice was level and composed.
Madame Gu’s hands started to tremble as she asked incredulously, “You don’t even want Grandma anymore?”
“Madame Gu, I can’t afford to have a grandmother like you. My mother can’t afford to have you as her mother-in-law either. Ye Yuwei isn’t worthy of your Gu family. My mother and I aren’t worthy of it either, so please leave my house,” Gu Juexi continued tonelessly.
It was when Gu Juexi said “Madame Gu” that the old lady fell into a sitting position on the bed while pointing at Gu Juexi, speechless.
“Some harsh words are better left unsaid, but it doesn’t mean that they don’t exist.” Gu Juexi pulled out a chair and sat down opposite Madame Gu. “I want to properly talk to you today.”
Both of Madame Gu’s hands were shaking; she didn’t know what to say.
“We won’t discuss Ye Yuwei today, because to her, you are no longer qualified as an elder. In hindsight, what you have been doing these days–is such behavior befitting of an elder? Hurling abuse, humiliating and even physically assaulting another–everything that a shrew will do, you have done all of it.” Gu Juexi’s voice was not loud, but every word stung.
Madame Gu looked at Gu Juexi in disbelief.
“Do you want to tell me that I am unfilial?” Gu Juexi asked. Putting the statement declaring his severance of ties from the Gu family into Madame Gu’s hands, he announced, “I no longer have any relationship with you.”
Panic sparked in Madame Gu’s dazed eyes.
Gu Juexi did not seem to notice it at all. He continued, “Ye Yuwei aside, let’s talk about my mother. My mother was married into your family for so many years, yet when she was in poor health, did you even care? Other than blame her for looking sickly every day, of course. When my mother had to change her liver, you went on a vacation with your own servant to the United States. For the past few years when my mother returned to recuperate, how many times did you say that my mother’s sickness will only drag Gu Tianmu down?” Madam Gu’s hands were trembling—she couldn’t respond.
Gu Juexi’s voice held traces of misery and mockery.
