“I’m busy,” Ji Shiting said. “Is there anything else? If not, I’ll excuse myself.”
“There’s something I need to do.” The woman smiled. “Sorry, can you ask the girl beside you to look up and let me take a look? It’s rare for you to come here, Young Master Huo. I’m worried that they’ll arrange for someone who doesn’t look good to you.”
“I’m pretty satisfied with that.” He sounded even more impatient as he walked out with Ye Shengge in his arms.
“Stop!” The woman’s voice became stern.
Although Ji Shiting stopped walking, his face turned sullen. He looked at the woman in front of them and said, “What do you mean? Are you looking down on me?”
The woman stared at Ye Shengge. Even if Ye Shengge kept looking down, she couldn’t help being seen clearly.
“Young Master Huo, that woman can’t go with you. To apologize, you can pick any other girl you want.” She suddenly smiled.
“What if I want her?”
“Then I can only offend you,” the woman said firmly. “The person you’re holding is an important guest of mine. The leader made a mistake and arranged for her to come out, so I can’t let her go with you.”
Ye Shengge knew that he had confirmed her identity, so she looked up and smiled, “I wanted to leave with Young Master Huo voluntarily.”
“Did you hear that? She came to beg me.” Ji Shiting sounded tough. “This is between me and her. Don’t bother.”
“All the girls at our banquet are under the same management. How can I not care?”
“You just said she’s your guest.” Ji Shiting sneered.
“I have to stay behind no matter what!” The woman’s face sank. She waved her hand and asked her subordinates to surround him. “Sorry, Young Master Huo.”
“Let’s see who dares!” Ji Shiting sneered.
Ye Shengge was burning with anxiety.
There was no way she could leave now, but Ji Shiting was “Young Master Huo” and he had a chance to get away. She was afraid that the man wouldn’t let go. If he was too stubborn, the other party would suspect his identity, and both of them wouldn’t be able to leave.
Ye Shengge said, “Thank you for your kindness, Young Master Huo. I thought you could save me, but it looks like… I don’t want to implicate you. Leave.”
Ji Shiting’s pupils constricted as he looked at her expressionlessly.
Ye Shengge pushed his arm and said, “Young Master Huo, I lied to you just now. Sorry. I’ll thank you when I have the chance in the future.”
She stared at him.
She believed that Ji Shiting could understand her hint. He had left her here to seduce him, so she wouldn’t be in danger as long as he didn’t show up. He could find another chance to save her after leaving.
However, if he insisted, it would arouse their suspicions, and they wouldn’t be able to leave.
Ji Shiting suddenly looked at the woman opposite him and said, “How did she offend you? Did she owe you money? I’ll pay it for her no matter what.”
“Heh heh, don’t tell me you really like her, Young Master Huo? However, I don’t have any feud with her, so I don’t need you to pay me back. I just need her to stay here,” the woman said. “Young Master Huo, I’ll count to three. If you don’t let her go, I won’t be polite anymore.”
