“You would’ve slept with others long ago if you had the chance.” Ye Shengge looked up at him.
Ji Shiting paused for a bit and smiled, “Ye Shengge, actually, you were subconsciously certain that I would wait for you, which is why you rejected me so readily. In that case, waiting for you would be my own choice, and it has nothing to do with you. You don’t have to bear the moral shackles anymore, do you?”
“I’m not…” She retorted.
Ji Shiting said, “You always say you don’t want to hurt me or drag me down, but have you ever thought about what I really need?”
Ye Shengge’s face paled.
“Are you doing this for me or for yourself?” Ji Shiting chuckled as he recalled what she had said that night when she was drunk. “Perhaps my paranoia has put too much pressure on you, making you want to run away.”
“No… No!” Ye Shengge was dazed as if she had been punched.
“I’m trying to adjust.” He stared at her with his dark eyes. “That’s why I restrained myself from seeing you, and even blocked all your traces, but it’s too difficult for me. I can only endure it for so long. I want to know how to give you up. Since this is your wish, perhaps you have a way, huh?”
Ye Shengge bit her lips.
“…I don’t have a choice. If I had a choice, I would’ve used it on myself.” She smiled. “Ji Shiting, you’re also very bad, you know… Because you made me unable to love anyone else.”
The man breathed heavily.
He took another step forward, and they were almost hugging each other.
“That’s fair, isn’t it? I won’t be free, and you can forget about having it easy.” His voice was hoarse. “You know I’ve always been overbearing, so before you fell in love with me, I didn’t even want you to know how important you are to me. It’s the same now. Even if we can’t be together, don’t even think about letting me go.”
Ye Shengge hadn’t expected him to say that, and her heart ached.
“That’s why I’ll still show up in front of you from time to time, making you realize how great a loss it is to leave me, making you realize that you won’t be able to find a better man than me.” There was a hint of malice in his voice. “I don’t want you to suffer because of me, but if you really get over it one day, I’ll be furious.”
Ye Shengge suddenly felt a strange warmth in her heart. She felt that she had probably gone crazy. She could actually feel the warmth from the man’s words.
“So you provoked a bunch of women because you wanted me to suffer?” Ye Shengge couldn’t help asking. “Like Cheng Xinyue.”
“Then, will you be jealous?” He raised an eyebrow.
“I know you have nothing to do with them.”
“Tsk… It looks like I need to find a woman who can make you feel threatened.” He pondered.
Ye Shengge didn’t know whether to laugh or cry.
“Ji Shiting, is this really fun?”
“Yes.” The man curled his lips, but his dark eyes were terrifying. “I can accept any form of interaction as long as it’s with you, even if it’s torture.”
