Ji Shiting frowned and picked her up.
Muted gasps sounded around the office. Ye Shengge couldn’t help gasping in surprise either.
“I can walk…” She couldn’t help feeling awkward under the burning gazes of so many other people. “Put me down.”
Ji Shiting shot her a glance, carried her to the office and put her on the sofa.
“How did you get here?” he asked, squatting down and grabbing her ankle.
“Um… Taxi,” she explained. “Don’t worry, I didn’t walk much.”
Ji Shiting pinched the spot where she had been hurt, and after confirming that she was fine, he said, “I’ll let you go this time.”
“Mm,” Ye Shengge answered with a blushing face, casting awkward glances behind him from time to time.
Ji Shiting stood up then turned towards Yu Shuhang, “You can leave now.”
“But I have something to do…” Yu Shuhang was halfway through his sentence when he saw Ji Shiting’s warning look and thus changed his mind. “I have something to do, so I’ll leave first. Bye, sister-in-law.”
“Goodbye.” Ye Shengge greeted him.
After Yu Shuhang left, she asked, “Did I disturb you?”
“No.” Ji Shiting sat down beside her, combed her hair and said coldly, “What’s wrong? You look like you’re being bullied.”
Ye Shengge almost teared up upon hearing that.
She didn’t know why, but she suddenly wanted to see that man because he would always look her in the eyes no matter how he treated her.
Ye Shengge knew that he had never cared about the birthmark on her face, her upbringing or any other reasons. At least, she didn’t need to feel uneasy about that annoying birthmark in front of him.
Mu Yanhuai swore that no man could stand her face, but Ye Shengge believed that Ji Shiting wouldn’t mind even if her birthmark would never disappear.
She couldn’t help throwing herself into his embrace and wrapping her arms around his waist, as if she was trying to draw some strength from him.
Ji Shiting was momentarily startled.
“Looks like you have really been bullied.” He put his hand into her hair and asked, “Is it Mu Yanhuai? Did you meet him?”
“How did you know?” Ye Shengge looked up.
Ji Shiting sneered, “Who else can make you upset like this? Why did you see him?”
“…” Ye Shengge sighed. “I just suddenly realized that I trusted him because he was the first person who affirmed my talent and said he didn’t mind having a birthmark on my face. However, he’s no different from anyone else. No, he’s worse and more cunning than anyone else.”
Ji Shiting could tell that she was being averse to herself. He just scoffed and said, “That means you’ve been living in a low-class society all these years.”
Ye Shengge was rendered speechless.
“You’re my woman now. Me not minding should be more than enough.” Ji Shiting’s tone was cold.
However, Ye Shengge felt the warmth of tears in her eyes when she heard that.
“I know you don’t mind, but it’s better if you can get rid of the birthmark now.” Ye Shengge couldn’t stop herself from saying that. She looked towards him and said, “Don’t you think so?”
