She couldn’t help panting after the kiss. Ji Shiting took a deep breath to calm himself down, then he smiled and hugged her tighter.
Ye Shengge was almost completely lying on him, and she couldn’t help licking her lips.
“You want it?” He chuckled.
Ye Shengge shook her head. It wasn’t the right time tonight. There might be surveillance cameras here, and she didn’t want anyone to see them getting it on.
Ji Shiting cupped her face in his hands and pressed his fingers against her lips. His dark eyes were gentle, as if he had countless things to say, but he couldn’t say anything.
Ye Shengge blinked and suddenly felt tears welling up in her eyes.
“It’s been three yearsâ€¦” She choked. “I broke up with you at this time three years ago.”
On the day she gave birth to Jinchen and Jinqing, Ji Shiting had come to see him. That was the last time they had met, until they met in Summer City a week ago.
It was the kids’ birthday after midnight.
It was like a cycle. It would be best if their lives could return to normal tomorrow.
But would it be that simple?
Ye Shengge suddenly started to suspect something.
She also recalled how Ji Shiting had knocked her out in the lounge. What had he talked to Professor Xu about that he didn’t want her to know?
“What are you thinking about?” He smiled and stroked her face.
“Nothing.” She blinked. “Shiting, I want to be with you no matter what.”
Ji Shiting paused for a bit and said, “Of course.”
She tugged at his collar and said, “Promise?”
The man thought for a bit and put the cufflinks on his right wrist into her palm. “That’s my guarantee.”
“Ahâ€¦ You want to patronize me with just a small thing?” Ye Shengge pretended to be upset.
“You should happily accept my gift, even if it’s just a piece of paper.” He raised an eyebrow and said domineeringly.
Ye Shengge couldn’t help humphing. She was still upset but she put the cufflinks on her body carefully.
The clock was about to strike midnight, and their eyes met.
‘Happy birthday, Jinchen and Jinqing.’
Ye Shengge believed that Ji Shiting was doing the same thing as her.
He then whispered into her ear, “Thank you, Shengge.”
Ye Shengge understood that he was trying to say how hard it had been for her to give birth to the kids and raise them.
Tears welled up in her eyes, and she smiled.
Ji Shiting smirked and said, “Sleep.”
After midnight, Jing Tong finally arrived at the airport in Beijing.
She was dazed for a moment when she arrived in the place she hadn’t been in for three years. However, she knew that it wasn’t the time to be emotional. She hailed a taxi and told him the address of the Jiang family’s manor.
She couldn’t help laughing at herself for still remembering that man’s address after such a long time.
There was no traffic at this time, so she arrived at her destination in less than half an hour. Jing Tong got out of the car and rushed to the door.
Most of the servants of the Jiang family knew her, and they were shocked to see her at the door.
Jing Tong didn’t care what she was thinking. She asked, “Is Jiang Yu here?”
“Yes,” the servant answered and walked to the manor to inform Jiang Yu of her arrival.
