“Ms. Jing Tong.” Ji Shiting raised an eyebrow.
Jing Tong grabbed Ye Shengge’s hand and shook it. “Your acting skills are amazing. I like you a lot!”
Ye Shengge was wondering who the girl was, but she suddenly realized something.
“So it’s you! I was able to get out of the detention center thanks to you.” Ye Shengge smiled gratefully.
The girl in front of him didn’t look old. She had a sweet baby face and clear eyes. It was obvious that she grew up with a family that pampered her.
“Don’t thank me. Thank Ji Shiting! This is our deal.” Jing Tong stuck her tongue out and looked at Ji Shiting. “When are you going to fulfill your promise?”
“When you return to Beijing,” Ji Shiting said calmly. “After all, everyone you know is there. The plan needs to be carried out in Beijing to achieve the best results.”
Jing Tong rolled her eyes and said, “Okay, I’ll wait a bit longer. Don’t think I’m easy to fool!”
“Of course. I wouldn’t dare fool you, Ms. Jing.” Ji Shiting smiled.
“That’s more like it.” Jing Tong clapped her hands. “Are you here to ask about the progress of the case? Let me tell you. Jiang Yu found a new lead a few days ago, and it’s all thanks to me! Don’t worry, I’ll continue to help him until we catch the real culprit!”
“Really? Thank you.” Ji Shiting sounded sincere, but he was just being perfunctory.
Jing Tong didn’t hear it, but Ye Shengge did. She couldn’t help glancing at the man beside her.
“Don’t mention it! Jiang Yu is useless!” Jing Tong said smugly.
Ji Shiting smiled and said, “I’ll head back with Shengge first. I’ll fulfill my promise when you return to Beijing.”
“Okay. Goodbye,” Jing Tong said with a smile and walked past them to go to the office.
Ye Shengge was wondering what Ji Shiting had agreed to when she heard Jiang Yu’s calm voice.
“How dare you ask Ji Shiting to marry you after seeing them?”
“None of your business!” Jing Tong answered.
Ye Shengge froze.
Ji Shiting felt her stiffen, so he turned to her and said, “Marrying me is obviously something she said to agitate her sweetheart. You won’t believe it, will you?”
Ye Shengge lowered her head in shame.
Ji Shiting hugged her tighter and smiled. “Let’s go.”
After getting into the car, Ye Shengge leaned against the man’s chest, feeling rather upset.
She had asked him more than once what price he had paid to take her out of the detention center, but he always played it down as if it was a trivial matter.
‘Did he have something to do with the murderer being caught today? What had he paid for it?’
However, she didn’t say anything because she knew that the man wouldn’t tell her the real answer. He didn’t want her to feel guilty.
If she kept probing, she would let him down.
Thus, she buried those doubts deep in her heart.
“Are you happy?”
Ji Shiting seemed to notice her change in mood and stroked her hair.
Ye Shengge calmed herself down, smiled at him and nodded.
The man stared at her shining eyes and smiled. “You might be happier if I take you to another place.”
