However, when Ye Shengge ran to the exit, she saw an empty hallway. She turned around and saw no one in the other direction.
Ye Shengge took a deep breath and ran to the other end of the hallway.
She knew that perhaps that glimpse was just her imagination, or perhaps she had mistaken someone else for him. However, she wouldn’t give up even if there was only a one-in-ten-thousand chance.
As she turned the corner, she saw a staff member wearing a uniform walking toward her. Ye Shengge grabbed his wrist and asked, “Did you see a man walking past here?”
The staff member was shocked and shook his head, “No, I just came out of the elevator. I didn’t see anyone.”
“Then guard the elevator. Don’t let anyone go down until I come back for you,” Ye Shengge said decisively.
The staff member was intimidated by her aura and didn’t dare ask why. She answered and returned to the elevator.
Ye Shengge bit her lips and ran in another direction.
There were several meeting rooms on this floor, and the largest one was the one she had just been in. The other rooms were all empty. She quickly ran all over this floor, not even letting go of the bathroom, but she didn’t find anything.
She finally returned to the elevator, and the staff stood guard there. She shook her head and said, “No one’s coming.”
The las trace of light in Ye Shengge’s eyes dimmed.
She forced a smile, thanked him and walked to the meeting room.
It was only then that she realized that her legs were shaking, and her heart was beating fast.
She supported herself against the wall and squatted down.
‘I was indeed hallucinating after all.’
If it were Ji Shiting, he would’ve found a chance to meet her.
Ye Shengge covered her face. After her hope was dashed, the pain and loss would double. She covered her face and tried to suppress her urge to cry.
She finally felt her phone vibrating.
She took a deep breath, took out her phone, picked it up and said softly, “Hello.”
“Where are you, Madam? Are you okay?” Sun Ye sounded worried.
“I’m fine. Please apologize to the host for me.” Ye Shengge’s voice was hoarse from choking. “I’m in the bathroom. I’ll be back soon.”
Sun Ye then hung up the phone with a peace of mind.
Ye Shengge put away her phone and stood up slowly, supporting herself against the wall.
The man’s deep and hoarse voice sounded behind her.
“Are you looking for me?”
Ye Shengge was stunned again. She thought she was hallucinating.
However, there were also clear footsteps following the familiar male voice. Before long, the footsteps stopped.
Ye Shengge clenched her fist, and she felt that her heart was about to jump out of her chest. She turned around slowly and found the man standing less than a meter away from her. He was wearing a shirt and pants, and he had taken off his suit jacket and put it on his arm, as if he wasn’t used to wearing it anymore. Thus, his sleeves were rolled up, and two buttons of his collar were unbuttoned, revealing his collar bone.
