Qiao Yanze had always been nonchalant and arrogant in front of others. Even if he was frustrated in his relationship, he still maintained an arrogant expression on his face. He rarely revealed negative emotions, let alone this dejected tone that was almost asking for help.
Ye Shengge couldn’t help feeling more sympathetic towards him, so she sighed and said, “I can’t analyze her psychology because I’m not her, and I don’t know what she’s been through. But the biggest possibility is that she doesn’t want it herself. Why don’t you admit this fact? Besides, she has already shown that she has no feelings for you. Does she have to have something to hide if she rejects you?”
Qiao Yanze’s pupils constricted. He stared at her for a while and nodded slowly. “I understand. You haven’t had breakfast yet, right? I won’t disturb you anymore.”
With that, he stood up and bade farewell.
Ye Shengge was a little confused… This man was aggressive and refused to give up until he got an answer. In the end… he left just like that?
Ji Shiting watched him leave. After a while, he suddenly chuckled and looked at the woman beside him. “Let’s go have breakfast.”
“This guy is really strange today…” Ye Shengge couldn’t help muttering.
Seeing her depressed and confused look, Ji Shiting couldn’t help but explain, “Obviously, he has achieved his goal.”
“Huh?” Ye Shengge was shocked. “But I didn’t say anything!”
“You helped him verify a guess.” Ji Shiting stroked her hair with affection in his eyes. “I’m afraid he wasn’t sure that this was Madam Qiao’s doing, although he sounded certain. But you didn’t refute him, which means he guessed correctly.”
Ye Shengge widened her eyes and suddenly flew into a rage. “He actually tricked me!”
“It seems like that’s the truth?” Ji Shiting frowned slightly. “Although the Li family isn’t considered a top family, it’s not bad either. Li Yinian and Yanze are considered a match made in heaven. Logically speaking, Madam Qiao shouldn’t be like this… What else did Li Yinian tell you?”
“Just this one thing…” Ye Shengge puffed up her cheeks, still immersed in the anger of being tricked. “Why didn’t I realize that this guy was so scheming in the past… Why didn’t you remind me just now? How am I going to explain this to Yinian?”
“You even hid it from me. If he hadn’t suddenly said goodbye and left, I wouldn’t have thought that he was trying to trick you.” Ji Shiting laughed and pinched her face. “You weren’t careful and now you’re blaming me?”
Ye Shengge snorted. “Don’t try to fool me. You still want Qiao Yanze to know the truth, so you’re helping him.”
The man snorted. “You’re trying to frame me.”
Ye Shengge finally felt a little embarrassed. She scratched his palm and said, “Forget it. I guess even without me, he will find out sooner or later… Moreover, Yinian is already on the plane back to Vienna. He’s so busy now and so many people are staring at him. I don’t believe he dares to look for Yinian.”
Ji Shiting smiled and held her hand tightly. “You know how to excuse yourself.”
“…Stop talking. You’re so annoying!” Ye Shengge flew into a rage out of humiliation.
She still felt guilty. After all, she had promised Li Yinian that she would keep it a secret for her, but Qiao Yanze still found out.
