His voice sounded calm, but under that calmness was a terrifying storm.
Li Yinian was almost defeated by the pain in his voice.
She bit her lips and looked at Ye Shengge as if she was asking for help. Ye Shengge said, “That’s right. Why else do you think Shiting and I are here? You should know how desperate Yinian is to get rid of you.”
Qiao Yanze didn’t seem to hear Ye Shengge at all. He clenched his fists and stared at Li Yinian with his red eyes. “Answer me!”
Although Li Yinian looked away, she still didn’t dare look him in the eyes. She closed her eyes and said, “I did know. I received a phone call last night… so I rushed back overnight.”
Qiao Yanze clenched his fists and said, “You didn’t do anything. You had a chance to stop it.”
Li Yinian nodded and said, “That’s right.”
If she was indifferent because she didn’t love him when she saw him lying on the bed with another woman, then how heartless was she to stand aside and wait for all of this to happen just to get rid of him?
She probably hated him or even utterly resented him.
Qiao Yanze stared at her as if he was looking at a stranger.
He clenched his fists tightly, and Ye Shengge was even more shocked. Just as she thought Qiao Yanze was about to flare up, he suddenly chuckled, took two steps back and let himself fall onto the sofa.
He closed his eyes, and his handsome face was cold and gloomy.
“Get lost,” he said calmly.
Ye Shengge hesitated. “Unless you promise…”
“I’m not talking about you. I’m talking about her,” Qiao Yanze interrupted her.
Li Yinian’s eyes finally focused. She suddenly looked at Ye Shengge and said, “Go back with Mr. Ji first.”
“It’s alright. I know what I’m doing.” Li Yinian’s voice was still hoarse, but her eyes had calmed down, and she seemed to have the strength to continue.
Ye Shengge nodded. She had stayed here to support Li Yinian. Since Li Yinian didn’t need her, she naturally wouldn’t insist.
The two of them stood up and walked out. Ji Shiting looked at Qiao Yanze and didn’t say anything.
Ye Shengge couldn’t help sighing after leaving the villa.
Ji Shiting grabbed her waist and said, “Don’t worry. Yanze won’t attack her yet.”
“I hope Qiao Yanze can really give up and stop being stubborn,” Ye Shengge couldn’t help saying.
Li Yinian was so determined, which meant that their marriage was enough to cause a disaster. Love was never everything in life. If Qiao Yanze was willing to let go, it might be good for both of them.
Ji Shiting didn’t agree. “I’m afraid it’ll be difficult.”
Ye Shengge suddenly felt a bit upset and said, “That’s right. You’re indeed good friends. You’re all the same deep down. You have to achieve the goal you’ve set, regardless of whether others are happy or not.”
