Chapter 593: It’s Not Nice, But I Like It A Lot
Ye Shengge’s eyes welled up.
No matter how many reasons she had, she couldn’t reject this request.
She bit her lips, adjusted her posture, sat on his lap, and put a hand on his stomach.
“Is that better?” She asked.
“Mm.” Ji Shiting curled his lips. “Are you feeling sorry for me, Ye Shengge?”
“No.” Her voice became hoarse. “I’m just afraid that I’ll have to take responsibility if anything happens to you.”
The man didn’t say anything and lifted her chin.
The woman’s bloodshot eyes could be seen.
“Why are your eyes red?” He raised an eyebrow.
“I’m mad at you.” She glared at him. “You said my noodles weren’t good.”
Ji Shiting chuckled and said, “It’s indeed not very nice, but I like it a lot, so I don’t want to waste it at all.”
Ye Shengge shivered and looked down.
“Ye Shengge.” The man suddenly called her name. “I’ve been searching for you online these past few months. I don’t know how you’re doing or what you’re going through. I’m worried about you, but I can’t do anything. This is the first time I’ve felt so useless.”
“Don’t be like this, Ji Shiting,” Ye Shengge said. “You know it’s not your fault. You’ve done enough.”
“I didn’t give you enough confidence, so you’re afraid every second you’re with me,” the man said.
“This has nothing to do with trust, and it’s not anyone’s fault.” She tried to suppress the lump in her throat. “It’s fate’s fault. We’re not fated. We can only accept this.”
The man looked at her beautiful face and smiled, “It looks like you’ve accepted that, so you’ve been living a good life after leaving me.”
Ye Shengge bit her lips and didn’t argue back.
“Song Ruyu told me she won’t hurt anyone anymore, right?”
“…I can control her most of the time.”
“But you still don’t want to come back,” Ji Shiting said, anger and helplessness in his voice. “Even when you saw me about to marry another woman, you didn’t do anything.”
“Ji Shiting, I haven’t fully recovered yet.” Her eyelashes trembled, and she couldn’t help tearing up. “Before that, there were too many factors that could cause all my previous efforts to go to waste. I don’t dare take the risk, especially…”
“Especially when you’re facing me.” Ji Shiting smiled self-deprecatingly. He held her face and wiped away her tears with his long fingers. “Song Ruyu said that staying by my side will make you suffer. I’ve never admitted that, but it turns out she’s right. You’ll only cry like this in front of me.”
Ji Shiting suddenly recalled how the woman had hugged and talked to another man with a sweet smile when he had first seen her in the afternoon, which had made him crazy with jealousy. However, all the smiles on her face had disappeared the moment she had seen him, leaving her dazed.
Ye Shengge was heartbroken. Her lips moved, but she didn’t know how to argue back.
The man smiled again.
He swallowed hard and said, “All this time, I’ve always gotten what I wanted, and I’ve always been able to achieve my goal. I couldn’t accept it, but it turns out there’s someone in this world who can make me helpless.”
