The woman in his arms was shaking badly. She was panting, and her eyes were filled with tears. Her lips were swollen, and blood was seeping out.
Ji Shiting’s eyes dimmed. He bent down and sucked the blood clean.
“Ji…” Ye Shengge choked and said.” Shiting, don’t be like this…”
“What?” He said hoarsely and pinched her chin. “Are you going to tell me that I shouldn’t treat my ex-wife like this?”
Ye Shengge lowered her head and didn’t say anything.
“Ye Shengge.” The man called her name. “Did you blacklist my number?”
The woman shivered but didn’t deny it.
“As expected.” Ji Shiting smiled. “I didn’t believe it at first, and I called you almost every day. I thought you’d turn off your phone, and I thought you would. I didn’t expect you to block my number. I didn’t expect you to have the guts.”
Ye Shengge shivered, and tears welled up in her eyes, but she held them back.
Ever since she left, she hadn’t dared to think about what that man would do. She was afraid that she would waver, so she tried to cut off all contact with that man.
“Sorry,” she said hoarsely. “There’s nothing I can do. That’s all I can do…”
If she wavered even a bit, everything would return to square one because she knew she wasn’t a match for that man. His strength and gentleness would tempt her to become weak and dependent, so she could only force herself to be heartless.
“I don’t want to hear your apology.” Ji Shiting held her face and forced her to look him in the eyes. “Who was the one who cried and told me that she couldn’t leave me? I thought you would cry all day, but I didn’t expect you to be doing well. I was overthinking.”
“From the looks of it, you made the right choice.” The man suddenly smiled self-deprecatingly. “Being forced to stay by my side will only torture you. How great is it now? You have a career, friends, and many outstanding suitors.”
Ye Shengge was upset, and she couldn’t help being dazed when she heard the last sentence. “What suitors?”
Ji Shiting stared at her beautiful face and felt his heart burn.
That woman might still love him, but she didn’t need him anymore. He was just a dispensable existence in her life, so she was still living well alone. She could digest all the pain and reluctance.
Ji Shiting couldn’t have regretted it more when he recalled how she had greeted Ling Yutong in the dining room.
She then recalled what Song Ruyu had said about how his influence on her was diminishing, and the frustration and powerlessness in her heart intensified.
“Do you remember what I said before?” The man pinched her waist, and his Adam’s apple bobbed. “I told you, if you dare run, I’ll break your legs.”
Ye Shengge shivered and stared at him.
Ji Shiting sneered.
He grabbed her waist and lifted her up, using his knees to open her legs so that she could feel her presence.
“Breaking your legs is letting you off too easily.” The man saw the fear in her eyes and curled his lips. “I’d rather f*ck you until you cry.”
