Ye Shengge flushed hearing his sarcastic tone.
She opened her mouth and said, “Who was that woman?”
Ji Shiting’s eyes dimmed and he looked amused.
“Are you here to condemn me?” he asked.
Ye Shengge regretted asking that question. She smiled and said, “No, no. I know she’s your subordinate.”
“Then why are you asking?” Ji Shiting raised his eyebrows. “Are you… jealous?”
“I’m not,” Ye Shengge denied. “I was just trying to change the topic.”
Ji Shiting gazed at her, his dark eyes unreadable.
Ye Shengge couldn’t help feeling guilty.
“What’s the matter?” Ji Shiting said.
“I’m really here to see you…” Ye Shengge wetted her lips and thought about what to say.
“You’ve already seen me.” The man picked up his coffee cup and smiled. “I have a meeting in three minutes.”
What it meant was that she could leave if there was nothing else.
Ye Shengge’s eyelashes fluttered, and she finally said, “Shiting, we’re still husband and wife, right?”
“Mm.” Ji Shiting looked calm. “I’ll fulfill my duty.”
“That’s right.” Ye Shengge nodded. “As a couple, we should help each other. So, if you run into any trouble, I’ll do whatever I can to help you.”
Ji Shiting smiled and said, “There’s no way you can help me if there’s a matter that I’m unable to resolve.”
Ye Shengge lowered her head dejectedly.
This was why she couldn’t speak to that man. Their social status was just too far apart, and the resources she had were too limited. What she had said about helping each other was just that man helping her.
This meant that she couldn’t repay him for all the help he had given her, and she didn’t give him what he wanted.
It was also because that man’s social status far exceeded hers that she didn’t dare to fall in love with him easily. Otherwise, if Ji Shiting met the woman he loved one day and wanted to kick her out, she wouldn’t be able to struggle at all.
In other words, she didn’t have the right to love him.
That made Ye Shengge even more upset. She licked her lips and said, “You’re right. Then â€¦ I won’t bother you anymore.”
Ji Shiting’s eyes narrowed, and he put the coffee cup on the desk.
“What exactly do you want to say?” His voice turned cold.
He knew what the woman was trying to say. The reason why he hadn’t made any moves and watched the public opinion develop to this point was to force her to ask for help.
However, after finally showing up, she now wanted to leave before getting to the point?
“I… done.” Ye Shengge smiled at him innocently and took a step back. “Um… I’ll return to Qianfan Villa when it’s my rest day. See you then.”
She then ignored the man’s gloomy face and ran out of the office.
After watching her leave, Ji Shiting adjusted his collar and sneered.
Very well. Let’s see how long you can last.
