Ye Shengge flew into a rage out of humiliation from his stare. The blush on her face intensified.
“I need you.”
The two of them spoke almost at the same time. However, compared to Ye Shengge’s raised voice, Ji Shiting’s voice was very low.
Hence, Ye Shengge was stunned for a moment and could not help but ask, “What did you say?”
The man wrapped his arms around her waist and said in a hoarse voice, “Shengge, there’s a voice in my heart that keeps telling me that I can’t lose you, or I’ll definitely regret it.”
Ye Shengge felt a lump in her throat. After a while, she said hoarsely, “So what?”
“I’m glad to hear you call my name in your dreams.” He pressed his forehead against hers, his Adam’s apple sliding.
No, he was not just happy, but at ease. That feeling was like seeing a lighthouse in the vast ocean. He knew that as long as she was there, he would return to normal one day.
Ye Shengge took a deep breath and looked up at the ceiling. “But I’m not happy.”
Ji Shiting took a deep breath.
Yes, no matter how many reasons there were, there was no way to conceal this fact—he had been demanding, and his efforts had been so raw and forced. She could see the nothingness in his heart with a glance.
“Ji Shiting, I just want to take a breather. Are you not even going to give me this chance?” She said in a low voice, sounding like she was about to cry.
Ji Shiting’s thin lips moved. After a long time, he said slowly, “No.”
Logically speaking, he knew what he should do, but he was worried that if he let go today, her lamp would never be lit for her again.
Until he met her eyes.
Ye Shengge’s eyelashes trembled slightly. Her eyes, which had been filled with her tears, were clean and clear. It clearly wrote: “If that’s the case, why are you still unwilling to let go?”
Ji Shiting felt the pain again. It was subtle and inconspicuous, but he could not ignore it. He looked into her eyes for a while and finally relaxed his grip.
“Stay here. I’ll sleep in the guest room.” The man caressed her face. “Ye Shengge, if you don’t want to see me, you should just chase me away instead of choosing to leave yourself.”
Ye Shengge bit her lips and did not say anything. When she saw Ji Shiting reaching out to grab the door handle, she moved aside and watched the man leave.
At that moment, she suddenly felt all the energy in her body being sucked out. A voice in her heart was screaming for her to not leave, but her throat seemed to be blocked by something. She did not say a word in the end.
She stood rooted to the ground for a long while before returning to the big bed in the bedroom like a wandering spirit and lying down quietly.
But the tears slipped silently down her cheeks and hit the pillow.
She had thought that being apart from him would make things easier for her, but it didn’t. Why… did she seem even more upset?
She had slept in this room alone for three years, but she had never felt so miserable like she was tonight. In the past, no matter how agonized she was, she still had a sliver of hope, but today, she felt that even that sliver of hope was gone.
She opened her eyes wide and stared at the dark room. She did not know how long had passed before she fell asleep.
When she woke up, she had a splitting headache.
She did not know if she had slept for four hours last night, but it was already time for her to wake up. Hence, she struggled to get out of bed and went to the children’s room as usual to wake them up for breakfast..
