“It’s just that I can’t reject the blind dates that grandpa has arranged for me,” he said, stroking her face. “Do you have anything to tell me?”
Ye Shengge shook her head and said, “No… They’re not as good-looking as me.”
The man chuckled and said, “Not bad. Your confidence deserves praise.”
“Isn’t that so?” Ye Shengge glared at him. “Am I not the most beautiful woman in the world in your eyes?”
The man lifted her chin and scrutinized her for a while. Finally, he smiled and nodded, “That’s right. You’re the most beautiful woman in the world.”
Ye Shengge blushed and buried her face in his neck again.
“Ji Shiting,” she said.
The man hugged her tighter and nodded.
“Are you really not afraid?” She said, “Besides… you promised to start a new life on your own that day.”
She could feel that he had made up his mind.
“Song Ruyu told me that I’ll affect your emotions greatly.” The man grabbed her hand and put it on his chest. “Perhaps I’ll make you better, or perhaps I’ll make you worse—if I stay by your side.”
Ye Shengge was dazed. She couldn’t help looking into his eyes, waiting for him to continue.
“You’re so determined. I wanted to part ways for a while and see how your treatment works.” Ji Shiting stared at her eyes and said, “But I realized that your life isn’t much better without me.”
“Who said that… I…”
“You work all day long and sleep mechanically. This kind of life isn’t good at all,” said the man. “If it weren’t for me, you would’ve been fine. But it turns out you can’t leave me at all.”
Ye Shengge bit her lips. She wasn’t convinced, but she couldn’t argue back.
That’s right. She had forced herself to work when she was separated from that man, but she wasn’t happy at all. It was as if a part of her life had been taken away, and her soul was no longer complete.
She couldn’t lie to herself anymore, but this wasn’t an excuse for her to keep that man by her side. He felt sorry for her, so he was willing to take the risk, but similarly… she loved him, so how could she bear to let him take the risk?
Her eyelashes fluttered, and she was about to go crazy.
If only he had really lost his memory… She thought again. That way, she wouldn’t struggle and be so selfish as to indulge in the gentleness he gave her.
Ji Shiting looked at her trembling eyelashes and guessed what she was thinking.
His Adam’s apple moved, and he kissed the corner of her lips. “Ye Shengge, are you really going to abandon me?”
She paled and stared at him, as if she hadn’t expected the man to use the word ‘abandon’.
“Heartless woman.” He sneered. “Is it because your birthmark is gone, so I’m useless to you? I just woke up, yet you dared to give me the divorce agreement… I really wanted to break your legs!”
Ye Shengge’s eyes turned red. He even remembered his birthmark… Indeed, he hadn’t lost his memory at all.
“Ji Shiting, you know that’s not the case…”
