Chapter 27: Fell for Him for Repaying Her Debt of Gratitude
Ye Yuwei opened her eyes and met Gu Juexi’s intimate gaze. He was too close to her that she could not see him clearly. She could only feel the itchiness at the corner of her eyes where his eyelashes rested.
“Falling for your wealth, status, and your physical appearance,” Ye Yuwei responded with a soft husky voice.
“The most powerful and affluent heir with the highest social status in B city has naturally made a lot of women go nuts over you. It was a pity that their tricks were not as good as mine. Why don’t…” Before she could spit out her last word, her thin lips were brutally bitten by Gu Juexi.
The iron taste of blood settled and spread in her mouth, which made her neither move or speak.
Knowing that he was rough, Gu Juexi loosened up his bite on her lips. A deep bite mark stayed on her lips with a trace of blood.
“Tell the truth.” He was tired of her attitude that aroused his uncontrollable emotions.
Ye Yuwei slowly regained her focus, her gaze fixed at Gu Juexi’s face. A hint of blood stain on his lips—her blood.
“Isn’t that the truth? That was something Mr. Gu used to tell me.” Ye Yuwei merely smiled, stating an economic principle that both of them were familiar with.
Gu Juexi’s fists balled up the blanket on both of her sides. He stared furiously at her disdainful eyes.
“For repaying your debt of gratitude?” Gu Juexi asked.
She fell for him to repay his kindness but little did she know that he was not the right guy.
Startled, Ye Yuwei paused. But knowing that he had never failed to get the information that he wanted, she continued.
“The truth is what you think it is. After all, Mr. Gu only believes in what he thinks is right.” Ye Yuwei did not go against him, she felt that her life no longer belonged to her. Being forced to look into his eyes and listen to him, she broke into a smile.
“What are you laughing at?” Gu Juexi was puzzled.
“Some people say that men are hard to please. When we love them with our whole heart and give our heart to them, they will trample on it and throw it away. Eventually, our heart breaks into pieces and stops beating. Only when we turned to leave with our crippled body, they will hold onto it tightly and give us their heart in return, as an act of kindness. But…” Ye Yuwei stared deep into his eyes. Her eyes sparkled like the first time she met Gu Juexi.
Knowing that she had not finished and that the next statement was definitely not something he wanted to hear.
“Little did they know that we do not appreciate that. They could never give us their heart as they could never offer something that they do not have. They love themselves more than anyone else.” Ye Yuwei said as she stared at the man before her.
Gu Juexi looked at her too. He knew that Ye Yuwei was breaking up with him. Her heart has been torn apart and had stopped beating. Was he upset or angry? He could not figure out the feeling in his heart now.
