Whether it was her imagination or not, she didn’t want to investigate further.
“If you really feel sorry for me…” Ye Shengge avoided his gaze and said. “Let go.”
Ji Shiting breathed heavily, but he didn’t let go. Instead, he grabbed her waist tightly.
Ye Shengge resisted the pain and put her hands on his chest.
Ji Shiting stared at her for a while, although he could only see the woman’s trembling eyelashes.
He suddenly chuckled self-deprecatingly and lowered his arms.
Ye Shengge took a deep breath and entered the bathroom.
As she washed her face, she suddenly felt a strong bitterness, which made her eyes sting. Ye Shengge covered her face and took deep breaths. It took her a while to
suppress the bitterness.
She walked out of the bathroom, but she didn’t see Ji Shiting. She was dazed for a bit, and she suddenly realized that the door to the balcony was open. The light
from the bedroom shone on the balcony through the open door, but the man was standing in the shadows, and his tall back was reflected in her eyes.
Ye Shengge thought for a bit and walked over. She only realized the sparks near the man’s fingers when she got closer.
She suddenly realized that she hadn’t seen that man smoke in a long time.
Ji Shiting turned around and looked at her, probably because he had heard something. His handsome face was half-lit, and his eyes were dark. He looked sad.
That man seemed to give off too much of an illusion today.
With some indifferent emotions, Ye Shengge couldn’t help smiling, but she hid her sarcasm.
Was he certain that she would give in if he showed any disappointment?
“Are you done?”
Ji Shiting finally spoke after seeing her smile. His hoarse voice was calm.
Ye Shengge nodded.
He put the cigarette on the balcony, walked to her and reached out, seemingly to hug her.
Ye Shengge took a step back.
Ji Shiting clenched his fist.
“You… smell like smoke.” Ye Shengge found a reason, but she didn’t dare look at his face. Before the man could say anything, she turned around and returned to
the bedroom. She climbed onto the bed and lay down, covering herself with the thin blanket.
She couldn’t help laughing at herself. She had made up her mind, but she still felt sorry and regretful in that moment.
If she had just accepted his hug and forgiven him like before, then today’s events would repeat itself soon. She couldn’t handle more disappointment.
Thus, she decided to leave it as it is.
Ye Shengge smiled bitterly and closed her eyes. She buried her face in the pillow, but she could still hear the man’s footsteps.
Ji Shiting seemed to have gone to the bathroom.
She breathed a sigh of relief and wanted to fall asleep as soon as possible, but she couldn’t calm herself down. After some time, she heard footsteps again. They
were getting closer and closer, and then, she felt the bed sink.
Ji Shiting lay down beside her and turned off the light.
Ye Shengge was relieved that the man didn’t touch her, but within half a minute, he turned around and hugged her..
