Ye Shengge was shocked and looked forward. She didn’t know whether it was her imagination, but there was indeed a looming shape in front of her, which was different from the boundless ocean.
“Is that… an island?” She asked.
“Don’t worry, we won’t die.” Perhaps it was because they were about to reach their objective, so the man finally relaxed, and said sardonically, “Pull yourself together. Don’t be so useless.”
Ye Shengge was thrilled and felt full of strength. “Let me go. I can really do it this time!”
Ji Shiting let her go.
Two minutes later, they reached the shore. Ji Shiting got up first and pulled her up.
Ye Shengge was completely exhausted. As soon as she stepped on solid ground, she collapsed and fell over him. Ji Shiting couldn’t hold on this time, and both of them fell to the ground.
It seemed that he was exhausted… Finally, Ye Shengge knew that he could have a physical limit.
Ye Shengge breathed heavily as she thought. The man’s wet and hard chest was beneath her. She buried her face in his chest and listened to his rapid heartbeat. Tears suddenly fell.
Ji Shiting seemed to sense it. He held her face and smiled, “What happened? Shouldn’t you be happy that you survived?”
“You…” She choked.” How dare you say I’m dumb? You’re the dumbest! ”
She realized that the man hadn’t been pushed down, but had jumped off the boat.
Ji Shiting swallowed hard and pinched her cold face. “How dare you say I’m stupid? You’re getting bolder.”
“Isn’t that so?” She sniffed. “Then you should escape on a lifeboat. If you didn’t care about me, Xiao Ruilang would have probably let me go.”
“Why? Do you still think he’s interested in you?” He sneered.
Ye Shengge felt a lump in her throat, and her tears flowed even more. “Nevermind… Why did you have to jump down? Did you watch too many movies? Did you learn from the lead actor? I didn’t know you were such a person!”
Ye Shengge didn’t know what she was talking about, but she couldn’t take it anymore.
Ji Shiting sneered, “You’re so imaginative. I just thought it was the best way to survive.”
Ye Shengge started to choke. She wanted to argue back, but her throat felt as if it was blocked.
“Do you still have strength?” The man stroked her burning tears. He sighed and said gently, “Get up. There should be a straw shed on the island.”
Ye Shengge struggled to get up from his body and said, “How… How did you know there was an island here?”
The man stood up and led her to the island. “There are many small islands like this near the coast. They’re too small and don’t have much value for development, so they’re usually used by fishermen for rest and shelter. I noticed it when I was on the deck and reckoned it was about an hour away from the cruise. Why do you think I dared to jump down? The cruise ship was already under Xiao Ruilang’s control. He wouldn’t have let me board the lifeboat even if I didn’t care about you.”
Ye Shengge was dazed. Although what he said made sense, she still couldn’t believe it.
