This discovery made her heart ache. Perhaps he was carrying a heavier burden than she had ever imagined.
And the fact that she could give him the comfort he needed made her feel that perhaps his heart wasn’t as distant as she had thought.
She couldn’t help feeling an unknown excitement and thus, she added, “I’ll be the one to care more about you in the future.”
The woman’s voice was soft, warm and slightly strange.
At this time, the sun had completely set. The entire world seemed to have fallen silent.
“Alright,” Ji Shiting said. He gazed at the lake and smiled.
After a while, Ji Shiting let her go, satisfied that it was nearly night. “Let’s go. It’s time for dinner.”
“Mm,” Ye Shengge answered, stood up and grabbed his hand.
Ji Shiting looked at their hands and smiled.
Perhaps she really thought that Ji Shiting was someone she needed to care for, so Ye Shengge paid special attention to him that night.
She kept gazing up to see that he was eating, worrying that he wouldn’t be able to eat well due to his low spirits.
Ji Shiting put down his chopsticks on noticing how she kept glancing at him.
The woman immediately frowned.
“Are you done eating, Shiting?” she asked carefully.
“Mm.” The man wiped his mouth with a napkin. “You have to eat more.”
“You should eat a little more too.” Ye Shengge said coquettishly. “Just treat it as though you are accompanying me. Otherwise, I won’t eat anymore either.”
Ji Shiting frowned and stared at her for a moment before he picked up his chopsticks once more.
Ye Shengge felt a great sense of achievement.
After dinner, Ji Shiting went to the study room. Ye Shengge was supposed to continue reading the script in her own room.
She hesitated for a bit, then printed out the script before heading to the study and opening the door.
“What’s the matter?” Ji Shiting glance at her inquiringly.
“Can I stay here?” She smiled at him. “I don’t want to be alone.”
Ji Shiting looked at her for a while and said, “Sit here.”
Ye Shengge knew that he had seen through her intentions, but that wasn’t important. What was important was that he had agreed.
Thus, she sat down beside the man.
From time to time, she would sneak a look at the man beside her each time she finished reading a few pages of the script. She had never worked together with him before, but at times like this, the feeling of being husband and wife was stronger than ever.
Ji Shiting was always very focused when he was working, and it seemed that he was no longer upset. Ye Shengge felt relieved, but also a bit disappointed.
At this moment, Ji Shiting took a deep breath and reached out to her. “Come over.”
Ye Shengge immediately put down the script and jumped into his arms.
“What’s the matter?” She asked. “Why don’t we stop working today and rest early?”
He raised an eyebrow and stared at her. “Is this an invitation?”
