If it were before, the man wouldn’t have been angry or upset about her request, but he wasn’t upset at all. Instead, he was considerate of her. If he wasn’t sincere in thinking for her, he wouldn’t be so magnanimous.
However, she still didn’t want to let it go easily. Perhaps it was because of Tang Ranran, but Ye Shengge was a bit angry.
“Are you mad?” She bit her lips. “Fine, let me go first… Um!”
Before she could finish, the man interrupted her.
The man who was obviously furious didn’t know how to control himself.
He walked in from behind and grabbed her waist. Ye Shengge was almost dying from his torture.
However, she refused to let go even though she knew that she could appease him if she said anything. She didn’t know whether it was out of anger or something else, but his overbearing plundering made her rebellious.
She bit her lips and moaned.
However, Ji Shiting gave in eventually.
He looked at her stubborn face and felt sorry for her.
He couldn’t force her. He should’ve understood that.
After that, he took a deep breath and turned her around to face him.
Ye Shengge looked down and refused to look at him. Her eyes were red.
He pressed his forehead against hers and breathed on her face, which made Ye Shengge shiver.
“Let me go…” She pressed her hands against him, but her voice sounded like she was about to cry.
“No.” Ji Shiting grabbed her hands and pushed her hair away. “I just can’t figure it out… Shengge, you know it.”
Yes, she knew how he felt.
However, although he loved her a lot, that man was still conceited and domineering. He had entered a command, and he had to get the corresponding outcome. Her willfulness was still because of his permission and indulgence. If it exceeded his bottom line, he would still be angry.
Of course, what was better than before was that he wouldn’t hurt her even if he was angry. Besides, his anger wouldn’t last long, and he could still communicate with her after calming down.
“Just take it that I’m being stubborn,” Ye Shengge said. “I just want to see how much you can tolerate me.”
She was also greedy, and she hoped that the man could change and compromise for her. Perhaps that was the greatest source of her sense of security. With that man’s status, he wouldn’t be willing to change for her unless he really loved her.
Ji Shiting looked at her eyes covered by her long eyelashes and felt his heart ache.
At that moment, he finally realized what he had neglected.
He paused and smiled, “Okay, I accept that reason.”
Ye Shengge was dazed. She hadn’t expected him to be so easy to talk to.
“Aren’t you mad?”
Ye Shengge was a classic example of being amenable to coaxing but not coercion. She felt guilty seeing how straightforward he was. She couldn’t help wondering if she had gone overboard.
“No.” The man looked at her. “Someone needs to be magnanimous between us.”
