Xiao Yaojing walked to the doorstep and looked at Gu Juexi, who had appeared out of nowhere.
Gu Juexi's head was tilted slightly due to Ye Yuwei's slap. There was a slight bruise forming on his cheek as he rolled his tongue over the inner lining of the side of the cheek that had just been slapped.
That slap took all of Ye Yuwei's energy. She leaned against the wall, panting and trying to catch her breath.
Xiao Yaojing was also in shock at Ye Yuwei's action.
Did Ye Yuwei slap Gu Juexi?
Ye Yuwei slapped Gu Juexi!
Regaining her composure, Ye Yuwei realized what she had done.
She could withstand whatever Gu Juexi did to her, but he had crossed the line by involving her friend.
Especially Xiao Yaojing.
Gu Juexi lifted his head. You could not tell what he was feeling as his deep eyelids hid whatever emotions he had, but Ye Yuwei knew that he was feeling angry, extremely angry.
"Ye Yuwei…" Gu Juexi said in a manner that was so calm that it felt as if any second now, he would lift his hand and hit her.
PA Wen's heart beat frantically as he stood downstairs, wondering if they could save on medical expenses if he went and bought Mrs. Gu some medical insurance now.
Ye Yuwei relied on the wall to support the weight of her body. Little blood spots appeared on her tightly pursed lips.
"Gu Juexi, you are despicable!" Ye Yuwei enunciated the words one by one. Her body was trembling and she was filled with uncontrollable hatred.
Gu Juexi suddenly raised his hand and held tightly onto Ye Yuwei's wrists. Amidst the presence of PA Wen and Xiao Yaojing, he held Ye Yuwei and pressed her against the wall.
Ye Yuwei was startled by his sudden reaction. She could feel the pain in her back due to the sudden force throwing her against the wall. Her face got paler than it already was.
"Gu Juexi, isn't divorce what you had always wanted? I have fulfilled your wishes, but what are you doing now? Are all guys like this? Have you only started cherishing and realizing what you had, after you have lost it?" Ye Yuwei stared directly into his eyes. Her wrists were red and bruised from the force he had used to hold her down.
"Cherish you?" Gu Juexi laughed. "What rights do you think you have for me to cherish you?"
His words pierced through the depths of Ye Yuwei's heart. "Yes. The only person in the world that you think is worth cherishing is Miss Yu. Now that I am stepping aside and backing off, shouldn't CEO Gu be happy?"
Gu Juexi paused for a moment and looked at her. Her satirical face caused him to burn with anger and lose all his power of reasoning.
'CEO Gu, are you really that oblivious?' PA Wen thought silently in his head.
'How can he say such things at such a time?'
PA Wen really could not understand what the CEO could have meant.
Gu Juexi opened his mouth, subconsciously wanting to explain himself in regards to Yu Sha'er situation. However, the satirical look in Ye Yuwei's eyes made him brush away that ridiculous thought immediately.
It was not his style to admit defeat in front of a person rebelling against him.
"Ye Yuwei, from the start it was you who wanted to marry me. Did I beg you to? Now that you want to back out, you want to divorce immediately. Have you asked for my opinion?" Gu Juexi continued pressing Ye Yuwei against the wall. "Isn't Mrs. Gu always doubting my ability? I just want you to know that in this place, there is nothing that I, Gu Juexi can't do." Gu Juexi's voice rang loudly in her ear, his warm tone was accompanied by the warm air around her.
Although the warmness of his breath hit at her face, all she felt were chills that went right to her bones.
Ye Yuwei's body was trembling uncontrollably again. All her years of suppressed anger rose after listening to his words.
He was taking revenge by going back on what he had said at the hospital.
