Ye Shengge’s eyes widened. “Are you saying I’m very petty?”
“No.” He stroked her face and chuckled. “I mean, I’m willing to be the one to compromise.”
Ji Shiting knew how stubborn that woman was. Although she would be gentle and humble in front of him sometimes, that didn’t mean she didn’t have a temper.
It was because of this determination that she could give birth to a child after he disappeared, raise the two kids, and manage the company well.
If that was the case, he wouldn’t ask her to cling to him like a flower.
Although she would boss him around occasionally, Ji Shiting knew that he was the stronger party between them. Her stubbornness and occasional temper might be because of the insecurity of the disadvantaged party, so she kept testing his bottom line.
This insecurity had nothing to do with love or trust. It was purely because of her personality that she was so afraid of falling in love with her.
After all, she was afraid of losing the initiative.
Ji Shiting couldn’t have asked for more if his compromise and concession could make her feel safer.
However, Ye Shengge’s eyes widened with suspicion.
She couldn’t help suspecting that man’s overbearing personality.
Ji Shiting snorted and knocked her forehead. “Think about it yourself.”
Ye Shengge stroked the place he had knocked on. She had to admit that he would agree to whatever request she made.
“I thought you were feeling guilty…” Ye Shengge couldn’t help mumbling.
The man stared at her and said, “Then why do you think I feel guilty?”
Ye Shengge was dazed for a bit, and she couldn’t help smiling.
She couldn’t have felt more satisfied.
She hugged him and smiled sweetly. “Okay, I admit you’re more magnanimous.”
“What else?” The man pinched her face.
“I believe you.” She blinked and said tactfully, “100%.”
He saw the uneasiness that she might not even be able to explain clearly. This tempted her more than any promise or gift.
Ji Shiting breathed a sigh of relief and blamed himself. If he hadn’t been missing for three years, she wouldn’t have felt so uneasy.
“Do you want to continue?” He said hoarsely as he pressed his body against hers.
Ye Shengge blushed, bit her lip and nodded gently with tears in her eyes.
She had overslept the next morning as a result of indulging him.
And for some reason, her alarm didn’t work. It was already ten in the morning when Ye Shengge opened her eyes. She immediately got out of bed, but the soreness in her body made her fall back onto the bed.
She almost exploded, but Ji Shiting pushed the door open and stopped her.
“Don’t worry. I’ve already applied for a day off for you.” He wrapped her body with the blanket. “Don’t worry. Your absence won’t affect the progress of the crew.”
Ye Shengge glared at him and said, “Where’s my phone? Did you switch off my alarm?”
