After hearing Ye Yuwei’s question, Xiao Yaojing was stunned for a moment. She then quietly replied, “Life is cruel. My heart is already dead now.”
Xiao Yaojing insisted that she was fine and that it didn’t matter but Ye Yuwei could hear from her tone that she was extremely upset.
She was only trying to cover up her sadness.
Therefore, today I have just lost the one that I love so you have to accompany me to dinner,” Xiao Yaojing said as she looked pitifully at Ye Yuwei.
“Are you sure you can really give him up?” Ye Yuwei asked, full of curiosity. After all, Xiao Yaojing had been so persistent for so many years, so she was curious as to why she is choosing to give up on him now.
Xiao Yaojing looked at Ye Yuwei who was driving. She seemed to be thinking hard about how she should answer Ye Yuwei.
“Actually, I have always known that the person that Lu Qichuan loves is you,” Xiao Yaojing suddenly said.
Ye Yuwei: “…”
“In the past, I could deceive myself and try to live with it, pretending that he did not love you. However, after seeing the way that he looked at you the other day, I knew that no matter how hard I tried, all my efforts would be futile. Lu Qichuan only had eyes for you.”
Ye Yuwei could not openly refute Xiao Yaojing’s statement but she felt sad for her.
She did not know why Lu Qichuan was so persistent in his feelings for her, but although he was in love with her, he had never once troubled her. He had always loved her from a distance.
“Furthermore, I do not want to feel revengeful and angry at my best friend just because of a man,” Xiao Yaojing revealed what she was feeling. Ye Yuwei was thankful because she could see that Xiao Yaojing valued friendship more than love.
Ye Yuwei turned to look at Xiao Yaojing for a moment, before turning to look at the road ahead of them. “That is so nice of you. Come, let me treat you to a big and nice meal. How about the food stalls right in front of our university?”
“Ye Yuwei, I will kill you! Can you be a little more generous?” Xiao Yaojing snorted. “I want to eat those French fine dining food that costs a few hundred dollars. Something like foie gras maybe.”
“I am only afraid that you would starve to death!” Ye Yuwei laughed and then continued driving. “Actually, sometimes I feel that if being in love does not make you feel desperate, then maybe that is not truly love at all.”
“Do you mean that I should be like someone who actually gave up on me because of a man? Is that love?” Xiao Yaojing said playfully.
Ye Yuwei: “…”
“Okay, I apologize. Forget that I said anything,” Ye Yuwei said.
Xiao Yaojing smiled as she watched Ye Yuwei turning into the parking at a five-star hotel.
“Big sister, I was just playing around. Are we really going to eat expensive food that can’t fill my tummy?” Xiao Yaojing hurriedly asked.
Ye Yuwei parked the car and then laughed at Xiao Yaojing’s words. “There is a big shopping mall located behind the hotel, but there is usually no parking in the mall.”
Xiao Yaojing: “…”
She really had too much expectation for this woman.
“Well, that is good for the car owners then. People like us would never understand,” Xiao Yaojing said as she opened the car door and got off the car.
“Since you are working now, who is taking care of the children?” Xiao Yaojing suddenly asked as she held onto Ye Yuwei’s hand while the both of them walked through the hotel and went to the ground floor of the shopping mall. The ground floor with packed with many different types of food.
“I drop them off at my mother-in-law’s house during the day and then I will pick them up after work in the evening,” Ye Yuwei replied. “Anyway, in a few more days, I will be going back after I settle some things here.”
“Just to hide from Gu Juexi?” Xiao Yaojing suddenly asked.
Ye Yuwei was stunned for a moment. She had not expected to be asked this question and therefore, her mind went blank at that moment.
