Ye Shengge couldn’t help chuckling.
Li Yinian entered at this moment.
“I was wondering why there wasn’t anyone downstairs. So you’re all here.” She smiled at Ye Shengge. “Do you need help?”
“No, we’re almost done.” Ye Shengge folded the clothes in her hand and handed them to Lin Ran. Lin Ran took them and put them in the suitcase. “Has Qiao Yanze left?”
“No, he’s still outside.” Li Yinian hesitated for a bit and said. “We saw Xiao Ruilang at the door when we came back. He should still be negotiating with Xiao Ruilang.”
“What?” Ye Shengge was shocked and put down her clothes. “I’ll take a look.”
Li Yinian followed her downstairs.
It was indeed Xiao Ruilang and Qiao Yanze outside. The two men stood facing each other, and the atmosphere was tense.
Qiao Yanze put one hand in his pocket, but his posture was full of vigilance. He said coldly, “Get lost.”
Xiao Ruilang leaned against the car and smiled languidly. “I’ll get lost after I see Shengge.”
“You still haven’t given up?” Qiao Yanze sneered.
Ye Shengge walked out right after he said that.
Xiao Ruilang immediately looked over when he heard the noise.
Ye Shengge looked murderous.
He smiled and said, “Long time no see, Shengge. Are you okay?”
“Does Xie Siqi’s death have anything to do with you?” Ye Shengge stopped walking and didn’t walk to him. “What do you want?”
“That’s why I’m here.” He looked at Ye Shengge. “I have a way to get you out of this.”
“What?” Ye Shengge asked eagerly.
“I’ll tell you if you agree to be my woman.” He smiled.
“Are you out of your mind, Xiao Ruilang?” Ye Shengge clenched her fist. She couldn’t have been angrier thinking about how worried she had been these days.
“That hurts my heart.” He sighed. “Can’t you tell how I feel about you, even till now?”
“Sorry, I can’t tell how you feel about me. I can only see how selfish you are,” Ye Shengge said coldly. “Xiao Ruilang, how long are you going to play the role of a cynical person for? You keep pestering me, only because I’m Shiting’s woman. You know I have a great influence on him, so you kept finding trouble with me. In the end, you’re still jealous of him.”
“You’re right, but my feelings for you are true,” he said sincerely. “Why won’t you believe me?”
Ye Shengge bit her lips and smiled, “Okay, I believe you. Since you love me so much, why don’t you ask the murderer to turn himself in to prove my innocence?”
“I’ll do it if you agree to be my woman.” He smiled.
“Prove my innocence first, and then I’ll consider whether I want to be your woman or not.” Ye Shengge said calmly.
Xiao Ruilang stared at her for a while and smiled.
“Shengge, if you don’t want to give in, I’ll have to go look for Brother Shiting. I wonder what price he’s willing to pay to get you cleared of suspicion.”
“Xiao Ruilang!” Ye Shengge was furious.
“I know you can’t bear to.” He changed the topic and looked gentle. “Why don’t you reconsider whether you want to be my woman or not?”
