Shang Tianyi had brought artists to other cities to attend events these few days, so there were only Ye Shengge and Lin Qi at home.
After Ye Shengge fell asleep, Lin Qi didn’t dare leave and just sat beside her.
After a while, Lin Qi heard the doorbell ring.
Lin Qi was a bit confused. Brother Tianyi wouldn’t be back until tomorrow, and she hadn’t ordered takeout or parcels yet… With that in mind, she walked out of the room, walked to the door and asked, “Who is it?”
“Me.” The man’s deep voice came from the other side of the door.
Lin Qi’s heart skipped a beat, and she opened the door. “Why are you here, Mr. Ji?”
“Where’s Shengge?” The man walked in.
“Sister Shengge is already asleep… In that room…” Lin Qi pointed.
In the room, the woman was lying on the bed with her hands and feet tied.
Although Ji Shiting had expected this, seeing it with his own eyes still made his heart ache.
Lin Qi followed him and explained, “Mr. Ji, Sister Shengge can sleep more peacefully if that’s the case. Otherwise, she wouldn’t dare to sleep at all…”
Ji Shiting nodded.
“Does she sleep so early every day?”
“No… She might not be feeling well today,” Lin Qi explained. “But Sister Shengge’s routine is rather regular.”
Ji Shiting didn’t say anything. He leaned over and kissed the woman’s forehead.
It was already late at night.
Lin Qi had just finished washing up and was about to sleep when she heard noises coming from Ye Shengge’s room. She couldn’t help rushing in, “Sister Shengge?”
Ye Shengge had just woken up, and she still looked confused. She looked at her and said, “How long have I been sleeping?”
“It’s only been three hours.” Lin Qi breathed a sigh of relief upon seeing her expression. She walked over and untied her. “You haven’t had dinner tonight. Do you want to eat something before sleeping?”
Ye Shengge nodded and said, “Okay. Go back to your room first. I’ll call you when I’m sleeping.”
“Okay,” Lin Qi answered and returned to her room.
Ye Shengge got out of bed to get some water. She turned around and saw the clock in the living room, and her heart skipped a beat.
It was already 11 P.M.
Where was Ji Shiting?
Where else could he be?
Ye Shengge forced herself not to think about it. She was the one who had pushed that man away. She should have expected this outcome, shouldn’t she?
She smiled bitterly and walked to the balcony with the glass of water, trying to sober herself up.
However, when she looked down from the balcony, she saw a glowing spot of light.
She was dazed, blinked, and after getting used to the darkness, she finally saw what was happening downstairs.
The man leaned against the car as if he had been waiting for a long time. The light was the cigarette between his fingers.
Ye Shengge couldn’t see his face because her tears had blurred her vision.
Her hands were shaking, and she couldn’t hold the cup anymore. Before rationality took over her body, her instincts had urged her to turn around and run downstairs. She didn’t even care about taking the elevator.
When she rushed to the man, she was panting and shaking.
Ji Shiting threw away the cigarette, grabbed her and kissed her hard.
