If the person last night wasn’t Mr. Ji, then who was it?
“Just now… Mr. Ji and your cousin Ye Shengge came out of room 203,” Xie Siqi said. “I was wondering why she was the one who spent the night with Mr. Ji.”
“Ye Shengge?” Ye Siyan’s body trembled. “How did this happen? How did this happen? Oh yeah, I was tipsy last night, and I think I bumped into her. I even lost my key… She must’ve taken my key!”
“A mix up?” Xie Siqi was surprised. “What a coincidence.”
“Coincidence?” Ye Siyan’s face twisted. “No, it’s not a coincidence. She did it on purpose!”
“Um… I don’t know about that, but I’m sorry.” Xie Siqi sighed. “It was her who got Mr. Ji.”
“No! No! There’s a mistake!” Ye Siyan grabbed Xie Siqi’s arm. “Didn’t you say that Grandpa Ji likes me a lot? Take me to him. I want to tell him that Ye Shengge stole my key. Take me there!”
A trace of disgust flickered across Xie Siqi’s eyes. She pushed Ye Siyan’s arm away and said, “There’s nothing I can do. Ye Shengge was the one who slept with Ji Shiting last night, so Grandpa recognized her. Even if you tell him you’ve made a mistake, Grandpa will only accept that mistake.”
“But why?” Ye Siyan’s eyes were filled with tears. “Last night… Last night…”
“I’m sorry, but I didn’t want that to happen either.” Xie Siqi sighed. “Please remember whether the key I gave you last night was from 203 or not. Ask the servant whether it was Mr. Ji who came to 203 or not. I support you as my sister-in-law, but I didn’t expect Ye Shengge to be so capable.”
“I’m going to kill you, Ye Shengge!” Ye Siyan yelled as she couldn’t help tearing up.
She was only eighteen years old after all. Last night, she wouldn’t have let her guard down if not for the fact she thought that the person in the room was Mr. Ji. But now, her innocence was gone, and she was no longer the young mistress of the Ji family.
It was all her fault, Ye Shengge! She had stolen her key!
“Stop crying. Try to find that man last night.” Xie Siqi patted her shoulder. “I have other things to do, so I can’t be with you right now.”
Xie Siqi didn’t want to stay here anymore since she had successfully lured her into the trap.
Ye Siyan stared as Xie Siqi walked away and burst into tears.
Elsewhere, Ye Shengge was seated uncomfortably in the living room of the manor after washing up.
Grandpa Ji sat across from her, and Ji Shiting sat beside her at Grandpa Ji’s behest.
“I’m in a hurry, grandpa,” Ji Shiting said.
Grandpa Ji ignored him and looked to Ye Shengge, asking, “What’s your relationship with Shiting?”
“A business partner,” Ji Shiting interrupted.
Ye Shengge immediately swallowed whatever wards she had been about to say. Indeed, they were just business partners.
“Do business partners need to spend the night together?” Grandpa Ji glared at Ji Shiting. “A man and a woman together in the same room. Things have already happened, yet you still want to deny it? Are you even a man?”
“If you don’t believe me, I can show you the contract.” Ji Shiting smiled and said calmly. “Anyway, we’re innocent.”
