Gu Juexi reached out for her and Ye Yuwei instantly took a step back.
“What are you doing?” Ye Yuwei demanded, her body tense.
Gu Juexi’s hand was suspended in mid-air and the rain fell on his slender fingers.
His hands looked firm and reliable; no one would be able to resist them.
Slowly, Gu Juexi pulled his hand back and murmured, “I want to see him.”
Gu Juexi’s voice was so soft it was almost drowned out by the heavy rain, but Ye Yuwei heard every word.
She should not feel bad for him. She should not let him upset her again.
Ye Yuwei stared at her palm, then lifted her head and looked at Gu Juexi.
“Gu Juexi, I want to ask you a question.”
Gu Juexi slid his hand into his pocket, and the bump that formed there indicated that he was clenching his fist tightly.
Ye Yuwei took a deep breath, stared at him and said, “You are Fox, aren’t you?”
Just as the words left her mouth, lightning flashed in the sky, illuminating Gu Juexi’s face and Ye Yuwei’s firm expression.
She already knew the answer, but Ye Yuwei wanted to hear him say it.
Gu Juexi did not respond, frowning as thunder rumbled nearby.
Ye Yuwei smiled cynically. Gu Juexi would not reply so she continued, “Ever since I mentioned that I wanted to divorce you, you were planning to use Yu Sha’er to help Yu Jiangqing gain the trust of Cheng Jie. Was I just a tool for you to deal with Yu Sha’er?”
Gu Juexi’s brows knitted, his frown deepening.
“It’s not that you did not want to divorce me. It’s just that I was a convenient tool that you could use to deal with Yu Sha’er without raising Cheng Jie’s suspicions,” Ye Yuwei said slowly, taking small steps towards Gu Juexi.
Gu Juexi took a step forward, blocking Ye Yuwei from moving out from under the shelter so she wouldn’t get caught in the heavy rain.
Ye Yuwei stopped moving.
The two of them stood before each other.
“Yu Jiangqing is still alive.” It was not a question but a statement.
As Ye Yuwei spoke, she laughed and tears started running down her face. The strong wind had raindrops falling onto her face, intermingling with her flowing tears.
“Congratulations, your plan worked and you can have your revenge soon. I am no longer of any value to you. What other reason could you possibly have that you still refuse to let me go, Gu Juexi?” Ye Yuwei stressed. She seemed to be asking him, but it felt more like she was asking herself.
Gu Juexi raised his hand, wanting to wipe the tears off her face.
Ye Yuwei unconsciously took a step back.
“Even if you were forced to marry me, isn’t your revenge enough already?” Ye Yuwei stepped back into the doorway and looked at the man standing before her.
Gu Juexi did not move his hand.
He did not say a word.
“Gu Juexi, using me is far worse than not loving me,” Ye Yuwei said to him.
The rain was still pouring down. Gu Juexi opened his mouth and rain touched his lips, but he didn’t explain himself.
“Ye Yuwei, why are you so sure that I was the one who saved you that time?” Gu Juexi suddenly asked her.
This was what he had come here for.
He wanted to know the answer to the question that had been puzzling him for a long time.
Ye Yuwei heard him but did not answer. She didn’t understand why he was suddenly asking her this.
Was he afraid she had used this as an excuse to deceive his mother?
“Maybe I was blind,” Ye Yuwei replied sarcastically.
“Gu Juexi, you have your life and I have my own. Let me go, and I will let you go too, alright?” Ye Yuwei said wearily, turning around as she walked away.
The door of the unit slowly clicked shut.
This time, she was inside and he was outside.
