After thinking about it, she still felt that she needed to tell everything she knew to the person who had the ability to seize Night Banquet. It would be best if she could contact Jiang Yu directly. She knew that if Jiang Yu sent people to investigate Night Banquet, Hua Cheng and the others might not let Ji Shiting go, but if she didn’t do anything, Ji Shiting might be in greater danger.
Xiao Ruilang looked at her for a while and sighed in dejection. “I’m very sad.”
Ye Shengge’s heart sank. She knew Xiao Ruilang wouldn’t let her have her way so easily.
“Why are you sad? Do you really like how I looked like an idiot just now?” She sounded anxious.
“No, how can you say that? You were clearly really cute.” Xiao Ruilang looked at her disapprovingly. “I thought I could raise it.”
His hopes were dashed.
He was upset.
Ye Shengge was rendered speechless.
“Xiao Ruilang, haven’t you given up yet?” She couldn’t help asking. “I know you think I’m interesting, but it’s been so long. No matter how fun a toy is, it’ll eventually become boring.”
Xiao Ruilang stared at her for a while and smiled, “Do you know what this means?”
Ye Shengge was cautious. “What does that mean?”
“It means I’m in love with you.”
“…” Ye Shengge said after a while. “Stop kidding, Xiao Ruilang.”
“Really.” He sighed. “Otherwise, why do I always think about you? I’m especially happy every time I see you. You haven’t released any new works in the past few years, so I can only listen to your old songs time and time again. You’ve been running T.S. Corporation for the past few years, and when have I ever competed with you? I’ve always been giving in to you, wanting you to be happy.”
Ye Shengge sneered, “You just can’t beat me, can you?”
“You can’t say that.” He looked at her seriously.
“Xiao Ruilang, I don’t care how you feel about me. I need to use the computer now, or you can send me to Jiang Yu’s manor.” She clenched her fist. “I beg you, okay? This is really important. It concerns the lives of many people!”
Many people had died in that underground laboratory. Ji Shiting… might be the next one.
Her heart ached at the thought of that.
That man had spent a lot of effort to get her out of here, and he had also brought the evidence and news. The research institute would be wiped out sooner or later, but Ji Shiting might not be able to escape unscathed.
“It’s none of my business how many lives it concerns.” Xiao Ruilang smiled. “Besides, you don’t care about most people. You only care about Ji Shiting.”
“Will you be happy if something happens to Shiting?” She glared at him.
“I might not be happy, but I won’t be too sad.” Xiao Ruilang smiled.
Ye Shengge clenched her fist. After a while, she smiled and said, “Do you know why Shiting hasn’t been ruthless to you despite all the trouble you’ve caused us?”
“Because I know my limits. I always step on his bottom line without going too far.” Xiao Ruilang licked his lips smugly.
Ye Shengge said expressionlessly, “No, it’s because to him, you’re like a childish child who likes to attract others’ attention by pulling pranks.”
Most people would find annoying kids irritating, but they rarely hated them.
