Gu Juexi leaned against the banister and looked at Ye Yuwei's back who had turned and walked upstairs. The feeling of losing control started when this woman mentioned she wanted a divorce, and it still lingered.
Initially, he thought this was one of her tricks.
But now, he has lost control of this woman.
The next morning, Ye Yuwei got up early.
The weather was good. Ye Yuwei got dressed and was getting ready to leave.
Auntie Mao had prepared breakfast in advance and was smiling from ear to ear to get her to eat.
"You need to have a filled tummy to win a battle. Eat up this black skinned chicken soup that Auntie Mao has prepared for you." Auntie Mao beamed as she got Ye Yuwei to sit down.
Ye Yuwei frowned and looked at the bowl of chicken soup.
"Auntie Mao, you're treating me as if I'm going through confinement post-delivery." Ye Yuwei laughed.
Auntie Mao froze for a moment, looked at her own hands and said, "Women need to nourish their own bodies. Take a look at how thin you are. Auntie Mao feels heartache looking at you. Hurry and drink up, how does it taste?"
Ye Yuwei nodded, feeling grateful toward Auntie Mao.
Auntie Mao observed Ye Yuwei and only allowed her to leave after she finished the soup. Just when she about to leave, Gu Juexi was coming down the stairs. Her expression changed, and she turned and went back into her room.
Gu Juexi was speechless.
Gu Juexi looked at Ye Yuwei's leaving image, narrowed his eyes and came up with a plan.
Gu Bank was eventful since morning as people from Bureau appeared at the office.
Ye Yuwei was present at the bank too.
After Ye Yuwei stepped into the bank, there were continuous discussions.
Ouyang Xianxin reprimanded her staff a few times but was unable to stop the whisperings.
Ye Yuwei sat at Jiang Tong's place and fiddled with her pen. Her trembling hands gave away that she was not indifferent to the gossip about her.
'No one is a saint. No one can completely be unaffected by the words of others.'
'Yet it is the opposite. Human beings are baffling creatures. They tend to magnify negative remarks, thus hurting themselves.'
'Nobody could master ignoring the opinions of others. They somehow will subconsciously be curious about others' impression of them. A passing judgment could affect the feelings the entire day, sometimes even longer.'
"Don't have to work anymore?" Ouyang Xianxin asked sternly as the discussions became more unbearable.
"Manager, why are you still helping this woman? We are in deep trouble because of her. Someone should have exposed this woman's true colors and let her be publicly criticized."
Ye Yuwei tightened her grip on her pen, her hands slightly shaking.
Ouyang Xianxin looked at the employee and sneered. "What has it got to do with you? You should keep your mouth shut if you have nothing better to say. Even if Gu Bank goes bankrupt, that is the Gu Family's matter. How would that affect you?"
"I—" That employee was called out by Ouyang Xianxin. He did not dare to rebuke, fearing Ouyang Xianxin.
Ouyang Xianxin placed her hands on Ye Yuwei's shoulders. Ye Yuwei looked up at her smiling.
Ye Yuwei slowly relaxed. She was considered lucky to have so many people supporting her. What was she afraid of then?
"What is going on here?" Jiang Tong had just arrived and realized the bank was filled with people.
As Jiang Tong walked in, the two officers from the Bureau walked toward her.
