Ye Yuwei's stare made Gu Juexi nervous. She was not crying or acting up—her eyes that he liked did not glow like they used to when she saw him.
She looked at him like she was looking at a stranger. Nay, it was as if she was looking at someone less than a stranger.
'Since when did this woman change so much?' Gu Juexi looked hard at Ye Yuwei.
Ye Yuwei was really not considered beautiful. In fact, she looked so average that she would not be noticed in a crowd. He tended to forget about her existence and he actually talked to PA Wen more than he talked to her.
"Ye Yuwei, this is your last chance." Gu Juexi tightened his grip on Ye Yuwei's chin, leaving red marks on her fair skin.
Ye Yuwei winced from the pain.
"This could be your only chance. You won't be able to do anything to Yu Sha'er if I don't step out of this," Gu Juexi said as a matter-of-factly.
"What are your conditions?" Knowing Gu Juexi, Ye Yuwei asked.
Gu Juexi tightened his grip on her chin even more after hearing what she said, making her wince again.
"Be Mrs. Gu and never bring up the divorce ever again if you lose," said Gu Juexi.
Ye Yuwei was surprised at what he was betting.
Gu Juexi looked into Ye Yuwei's eyes as he waited for her to answer.
He knew how determined Ye Yuwei was for the divorce. This bet would lead to an extreme ending for either one of them.
Ye Yuwei's hands balled into fists. If she won, Gu Juexi would sign the divorce papers and she got to leave; if she lost, she would lose the bet together with her pride and she would live her life as it was now for the rest of her life.
Gu Juexi was waiting for Ye Yuwei to answer. Would she agree to the bet since it was too much for her to lose?
Bet or no bet?
Ye Yuwei tightened her fists, so much so that it began to hurt.
Gu Juexi had blocked all her other ways out. The only way she had now was a cliff and the bet was for her to jump off from the cliff. If she survives the fall, she wins.
"I agree to your bet," said Ye Yuwei. Her determined voice surprised Gu Juexi. Gu Juexi began to feel angry, only because she chose to take the risk so that she could have the chance to leave.
PA Wen showed up with the divorce papers right before Gu Juexi could almost dislocate Ye Yuwei's jaw.
Looking at what was in front of him, PA felt that he came at the wrong timing.
Gu Juexi set aside his anger and let go of Ye Yuwei's chin the moment PA Wen showed up.
Ye Yuwei heaved a sigh of relief, stroke her chin that almost got dislocated and nodded slightly at PA Wen as a form of greeting.
PA Wen nodded at Ye Yuwei too and quickly passed the divorce papers to Gu Juexi, who took it and sat down in the sofa.
Gu Juexi began to read the divorce papers carefully.
Not knowing if Gu Juexi was happy with the draft, PA Wen began to feel worried as he saw Gu Juexi's face turn ghastly.
