“Are you awake?” Ji Shiting asked in a hoarse voice.
Ye Shengge nodded. “Are you done? Why don’t I pick up Ah Chen and Qing’er first?”
The man looked at her deeply and suddenly said, “Come here.”
Ye Shengge hesitated for a moment but eventually walked over. Ji Shiting grabbed her wrist and pulled her into his arms.
Ye Shengge did not struggle. She reached out to hug his waist and buried her face in his chest. Her eyelashes drooped down to hide the obscure emotions in her eyes.
Ji Shiting’s heart skipped a beat.
She seemed to like hugging him like this. She even liked to bury her face in his chest and rub it against him, as if she wanted to use this method to obtain some form of comfort.
Ji Shiting could not help but put his hand on the back of her head and said in a low and hoarse voice, “Are you still angry?”
Ye Shengge paused and looked up at him. “I hate your female assistant. Can you fire her?”
The man did not expect her to make such a request and frowned slightly. “I’ve just handed a few projects to her. If I fire her, I’m afraid I won’t be able to find a suitable replacement in a short period of time. Sun Ye already has enough missions on hand. If he could handle it alone, I wouldn’t have hired
Tang Ranran back then.”
“So, you can’t bear to leave her?” Ye Shengge looked at him steadily.
Ji Shiting’s eyes darkened. “I can’t bear to lose her as a subordinate. At least she performs well at work. I have no reason to fire her.”
“She applied to be your assistant, and her target was you. Wasn’t there a video of you that was widely circulated online? I guess she only targeted you after watching that video.” Ye Shengge said calmly, “You can’t bear to part with a female assistant with ulterior motives?”
“Shengge, I know you are angry that I asked her to pick a gift.” Ji Shiting frowned even more. “But I don’t think she has any ulterior motives. Otherwise, why do you like every gift she picked?”
“So, you don’t believe me?” Ye Shengge smiled, but there was no anger in her voice.
“Shengge.” The man softened his tone and tried to comfort her. “When Sun Ye comes back, I’ll rearrange their job scope. In the future, I’ll hand over all the tasks that need to be carried out with me in person, over to Sun Ye. I’ll try my best to reduce the chances of being in contact with Tang Ranran.”
Ye Shengge shifted her gaze away and stared blankly at the floor-to-ceiling window not far away. “In the end, you still don’t believe me.”
Ji Shiting exerted strength in his arm and said angrily, “Shengge, don’t be unreasonable!”
Ye Shengge seemed to find it ridiculous. She stared at him. “Do you think I’m being unreasonable?”
“It’s hard to say if Tang Ranran has ulterior motives, but Su Yao clearly has ulterior motives towards you.” Ji Shiting suddenly laughed coldly. “As long as you accept the role, you will definitely work with the male actors. However, I won’t ask you to stop filming because of this, be it in the past or now.”
“This is different!” Her face flushed with anger.
“It’s indeed different.” His dark eyes stared at her, his voice colder. “At least I won’t let her have a chance to get close to me.”
Ye Shengge widened her eyes in disbelief and clenched her fists tightly.
“Yes, I saw that picture.” He gave a hoarse laugh. “I can tell it was an accident, but as long as you interact with him every day, there’ll be enough chances for an accident to happen..”
