Ye Yuwei’s hands began trembling violently but she held her stance.
As she was running up the stairs, she heard Yu Jiangqing scream and saw that Gu Juexi had a gun pointed at him.
At that moment, her mind went blank.
She only knew that she saw a gun, and that Gu Juexi must not die. He must not die.
He owed her so much, how could she let him die?
Gu Juexi tried to stand up and stabilize himself. He held his arm that had been shot. “Put down the gun, Ye Yuwei. Put the gun down.”
It seemed as though Ye Yuwei could not hear him at all. Her whole body was shaking uncontrollably and the glare from the distant warship shone on her pale face. Her forehead was covered in sweat and rain.
“Ye Yuwei! Ye Yuwei!”
“Don’t come over,” Ye Yuwei snarled and fired a shot in Gu Juexi’s direction.
“Ye Yuwei!” Yu Jiangqing was shocked and quickly grabbed the pistol from Ye Yuwei’s hand.
Gu Juexi did not try to dodge her bullet and was shot again on his injured arm.
“What are you doing? Let go of her,” Gu Juexi shouted as he pushed Yu Jiangqing away. He held onto Ye Yuwei’s arm and whispered, “Ye Yuwei, look at me. Look at me now, Ye Yuwei.”
He knew that Ye Yuwei was scared and had not experienced this before.
Lu Qichuan gazed at them as he waited for the navy to arrive and take these people away.
He just watched from afar and did not approach them.
Things turned out exactly like they did ten years ago. There was no room for him in this story.
In the past, Gu Juexi saved Ye Yuwei.
This time, Ye Yuwei saved Gu Juexi.
They owed their lives to each other.
Who else could step in?
“Ye Yuwei,” Gu Juexi said hoarsely. “I’m Gu Juexi. I will take you home now. Everything is over, I will take you home now,” Gu Juexi murmured as he gently took her hand.
This time he would say whatever he needed to so he could bring Ye Yuwei home.
Go back to his house?
Go back home?
Ye Yuwei suddenly regained her senses and the moment she looked up and saw Gu Juexi, she used all of her strength to hit him on the face.
Due to the excessive force she had used, Ye Yuwei stumbled back and slammed into the railing behind her.
The warning from the navy sounded in her ears and the man who had made her life a living hell stood right before her.
Gu Juexi had been hit, but he could not feel anything as his body was already in pain.
Ye Yuwei slowly regained her consciousness as the pain spread throughout her body.
The sapphire was still with him.
Ye Yuwei felt cold under the heavy rain and she began to feel pain in her lower abdomen.
She had to take the sapphire back from Gu Juexi. She had to take it back.
“Gu Juexi, if there is an afterlife, I hope that I will never meet you again,” Ye Yuwei bit out word-by-word. Each word coming out of her mouth was like an arrow through Gu Juexi’s heart. Ye Yuwei slowly stretched a hand out to him and said, “Give it back to me.”
Gu Juexi gazed at Ye Yuwei as he listened to her.
“Ye Yuwei, I can explain everything to you,” Gu Juexi whispered.
Yu Jiangqing and Lu Qichuan looked at each other in disbelief.
This was the first time they had heard those words coming from Gu Juexi. What’s more, he would be the one explaining himself to her.
Ye Yuwei had really changed their Captain.
