Ji Shiting glanced at Sun Ye and saw that he was still shocked. He reckoned that the woman wouldn’t like the assistant even if she was lonely.
He then said, “I should go.”
Actually, his phone had vibrated several times.
Ye Shengge was still holding his arm. She blinked and said, “But I’m worried. What if that kid surnamed Yuan refuses to let you go and lock you up? Why do you trust them so much? Perhaps they’re the ones who hurt you.”
“I’ve been with them for three years.” Ji Shiting raised an eyebrow. “Compared to them, I’m more worried that you’ll lock me up.”
“You trust them more?” Ye Shengge was furious. “They’re nothing to you! Are you going to abandon your wife and children for a few strangers who came out of nowhere?”
Ji Shiting frowned.
It was one thing to abandon his wife, but what about abandoning his children?
That woman was smart, calm, gentle, and unreasonable sometimes.
However, from her standpoint, it was only natural that she suspected and disliked Old Yuan and the others. In fact, he didn’t necessarily trust and get close to them, but he was confident that Old Yuan and the others wouldn’t dare lie to him anymore.
The man grabbed her and said, “Didn’t I say I would come back to you? How about this? I’ll give you my phone number. Call me if you need anything, okay?”
Ye Shengge’s eyes welled up.
She hadn’t heard him speak to her in such a gentle tone in a long time.
“I want your current address,” she said coquettishly, pushing her limit.
Ji Shiting looked at her and nodded. “Okay.”
After Ye Shengge got his phone number and address, she still refused to let him go. She grabbed his sleeves with both hands, and her eyes were red, showing her fear.
She hated parting with him. It had been exactly like this the last time. He had said he would return soon, but he had made her wait for three years. She was afraid that it would be the same this time.
Ji Shiting’s heart softened.
He sighed and said, “It’s not that I don’t want you to go back with me. I’m worried that Old Yuan and the others won’t be honest with you.”
“I’ll look for you tomorrow morning,” Ye Shengge said. “Can I?”
“No need. I’ll come back for you,” Ji Shiting said and kissed her forehead.
However, Ye Shengge refused to let go.
The man frowned and said, “Were you so clingy back then?”
“You wished I was clingier back then,” Ye Shengge said and let him go. “Ji Shiting, you can’t go back on your word this time.”
The man felt his heart ache.
“Okay,” he promised.
Sun Ye finally found a chance to speak after Ji Shiting left.
“Madam, the president… He…”
“He doesn’t remember you,” Ye Shengge said. “To be precise, he doesn’t remember anyone, so he never came back. Before today, he didn’t even know who he was.”
Sun Ye took a deep breath.
No wonder the president had looked at him coldly and hostilely…
