The environment in XiShanLinYu was quiet, and it was selling to be close to nature. Even the stairs were decorated lushly, and a well-dressed man stood between the grass and orchids. It was an eye-catching scene.
The woman beside him was saying something to him, so he tilted his head and listened. The man’s handsome face looked nonchalant, and his lips curled up.
Ye Shengge couldn’t help but hold her breath. Perhaps it was because of the man’s aloofness that she felt so unfamiliar with him.
This scene was also very glaring.
She looked away and stepped back, wanting to go up after they went downstairs. However, Ji Shiting didn’t see her, but the woman beside him recognized her first.
“Ye Shengge?” The woman called out her name, sounding surprised.
Ye Shengge was also shocked because the voice sounded familiar.
She looked up and realized that the woman beside the man was Ling Yutong. She and Ling Yutong looked at each other in astonishment.
It was easy to cross each other on a narrow path.
Ye Shengge couldn’t help smiling bitterly. When Ling Yutong had pestered Ji Shiting, she had used her status to mock Ling Yutong, but now, Ling Yutong was obviously Ji Shiting’s date, and she had become his ex-wife. She no longer had the right to take Ji Shiting away from her.
“Ms. Ling,” she said to Ling Yutong as she tried to ignore Ji Shiting’s burning gaze.
Ling Yutong couldn’t help looking at Ji Shiting. The man had always been nonchalant when he was talking to her, but when Ye Shengge appeared, his aura immediately sank, and his deep gaze fell on Ye Shengge.
Ling Yutong bit her lips and smiled at Ye Shengge, “Why are you here?”
“Oh, I’m meeting Director Zhang here,” Ye Shengge said as she raised her phone. “Sorry, I’m in a hurry.”
She then looked away and said, “Yu Pavilion, right? Okay, I’ll be there soon.”
She then walked up the stairs and was about to walk past Ji Shiting.
The man wanted to grab her wrist, but she avoided it. She quickened her pace, and the man’s gaze on her became more intense.
Ji Shiting stared at her back, his eyes dark.
Ling Yutong looked at him and said, “Shiting, I heard from Grandpa Ji that you and Ye Shengge are divorced.”
Ling Yutong had mixed feelings about today’s date. She couldn’t take it lying down. She didn’t want to give up the chance of Ji Shiting losing his memory, but she didn’t want to embarrass herself again, so she agreed to the date after hearing from Grandpa Ji that Ji Shiting and Ye Shengge had divorced.
Although the man was a gentleman during the date, he wasn’t very warm to her. She wasn’t discouraged by that. She thought that she still had a chance as long as Ji Shiting didn’t dislike her.
However, she hadn’t expected the man’s aloofness to vanish the moment he saw Ye Shengge. If it weren’t for the inappropriate scene, Ling Yutong suspected that the man would have left her and taken Ye Shengge away.
