Jiang Yu paused and said, “What do you plan to do next?”
“Look for a job.” She was expressionless. “What else?”
All the properties of the Jing family had been seized, and only the Jing Family’s manor was still under her name, but she didn’t want to go back to live there at all. She had spent most of her education fund in the past three years abroad. If she didn’t find a job, she would starve to death soon.
“Okay, I’ll arrange it for you,” he agreed.
“No need. I won’t stay in Beijing,” Jing Tong said calmly. “With my qualifications, a vague job isn’t difficult to find. Don’t worry.”
Jiang Yu frowned.
He was also unfamiliar with making a living on his own.
‘Jing Tong understood what he was thinking upon seeing his expression. She smiled self-deprecatingly and said, “Jiang Yu, don’t you understand? From the moment my father was arrested, we were no longer people of the same world. I’m already very lucky to be able to live an ordinary life.”
Actually, she was often worried that the people her father had killed would seek revenge.
The man swallowed hard and said, “We all live on Earth. Why aren’t we from the same world?”
Jing Tong looked at him expressionlessly.
That man actually knew to crack lame jokes, but this one was really awful.
However, she played along by smiling and chuckling.
“Jiang Yu, I know you sympathize with me and might feel guilty, but you really don’t need to.” She sighed. “You didn’t let me down, and I shouldn’t blame you. I was too childish back then. Don’t take what I said to you to heart.”
She always wondered why it had to be Jiang Yu who sent her father to prison.
However, she now felt that her father deserved it. Why couldn’t it be Jiang Yu? Should he be worried about her feelings just because she liked him? Why?
She thought that she should even thank him for being decisive, at least, he had extinguished the last bit of hope in her heart.
Jiang Yu pursed his lips.
He could tell that she was sincere.
He had once hoped that she would be more sensible and not bother him or pester him. She had never listened.
Now that she was finally sensible, she apologized to him from the bottom of her heart, but he couldn’t be happy.
“You should blame me,” he said. “I did let you down back then.”
“How about you let me leave if you feel sorry towards me? I’ve been fine for a long time. Look if you don’t believe me,” Jing Tong said as she lifted the blanket and shook her legs, indicating that she was really fine.
Her long legs were wrapped in her skinny jeans.
Jiang Yu looked away and said, “Why aren’t you wearing pajamas?”
“I changed it in the evening. I plan to walk over.” She expressed her desire to leave again.
Jiang Yu was rendered speechless. He didn’t have any excuse to keep her here anymore.
He suddenly clenched his hat. He was a workaholic, and home was a place for him to sleep, but today in the office, he was looking forward to going home when he thought about Jing Tong being at home. Even if the woman didn’t say anything nice, he was willing to listen.
He had once thought she was being noisy, but now, he wanted her to talk to him..
