Ye Yuwei could barely move a muscle because of his tight grasp. This action made her feel slightly humiliated.
Gu Juexi was the kind of perverse man who found joy in attacking others. It was as if it was his fetish and it made him feel superior.
Yes. It was pleasure. The kind of pleasure that could overcome all the unknown emotions of the heart.
Ye Yuwei's body hurt from the pressure that he was putting on her. She looked at the mirror and saw their reflection. It seemed like this was the first time they had stood by the mirror together.
She remembered that whenever she went out with Xiao Yaojing during her school days, Xiao Yaojing would drag her to stand outside of the glass display of other people's shops. She would then look at both of their shadows, pressed against her neck and said, "I feel that the happiest time of my life would be to appear in the mirror reflection with the person that I love. Isn't that the most wonderful feeling?"
Ye Yuwei looked at their reflection in the mirror and could not see even the slightest happiness.
What she could see was only her humiliated self and the disgust of the person behind her.
Knock, knock, knock.
There was a knock at the door. Ye Yuwei struggled to free herself but Gu Juexi refused to let go.
"Young Master, Manager Ouyang is here looking for Young Mistress," Butler Kim said in a low voice.
Ye Yuwei let out a sigh of relief. Fortunately for her, Butler Kim had not entered the room and seen her in such a humiliating stance.
Ouyang was another manager of Gu Bank. She might be on the same level as Ye Yuwei, but was way more formidable than Ye Yuwei.
Gu Juexi let Ye Yuwei go after hearing Butler Kim's words.
Ye Yuwei took a step back and swung her arms that were in pain because of Gu Juexi. She tidied herself up and ran out of the room hurriedly as if she had just seen a ghost.
Gu Juexi smiled and followed slowly behind her.
Manager Ouyang's name was Ouyang Xianxin. She was already more than fifty years old and she was dressed in professional attire. She stood up as soon as she saw Ye Yuwei.
"Sister Xin, are you looking for me?" Ye Yuwei stabilized her emotions and managed to calm herself down, despite her pale face.
Ouyang Xianxin nodded her head and handed to Ye Yuwei the documents that she had brought with her. "You have not come to work for a few days and I could not get you through your phone. Therefore, I came to look for you." Ouyang Xianxin saw Gu Juexi who was following behind Ye Yuwei and greeted respectfully, "CEO Gu." She had thought that Gu Juexi would not be home and that was why she had come to look for Ye Yuwei.
Gu Juexi acknowledged her presence and then headed directly towards the kitchen.
Ye Yuwei did not even look at the documents when she said, "I have already handed my resignation letter over to the Human Resources personnel. You should not be looking for me for all these anymore."
Gu Juexi retracted his steps a little and looked at the two people standing opposite him.
Ye Yuwei had said that she had studied Economics in order to help Gu Juexi.
But now, she did not even want her job anymore.
This proved that she was now denying everything that she had once done for Gu Juexi.
Gu Juexi's temper was on the rise again, but as there were outsiders around, he managed to suppress it well.
Ouyang Xianxin paused for a moment. She could feel a chill down her spine.
"Are you resigning to prepare to have a child? Then again, you have been married to the CEO for three years now. It is indeed time to have a child." Ouyang Xianxin said, showing her concern and understanding.
A child? Ye Yuwei did not even have the strength left to laugh and say what a good joke that was.
