Chapter 30 What’s in Your Head?
Ye Yuwei looked up and stared at his hand in the air, as if waiting for the slap. But it never came.
Gu Juexi’s hand froze in the air before he put his hand down when he saw Ye Yuwei looking at him. “Look at you! You look like a fishwife!” Gu Juexi scolded, with his eyes on the back of her hand.
Qing helped Yu Sha’er up from the floor and screamed when she saw blood on Yu Sha’er’s face.
Yu Sha’er stood up with Qing’s help and whimpered, “It’s okay if it makes Mrs. Gu feel better.”
What Yu Sha’er said disgusted Ye Yuwei and it showed on Ye Yuwei’s face. “What is in your head for you to use the same old trick again and again, Yu Sha’er?” asked Ye Yuwei, who then looked at Gu Juexi, “I am sorry Mr. Gu. I really am not quite civilized. You can slap me back if you feel it unfair for Miss Yu, what about that?”
Ye Yuwei a forced smile appeared on her pale face as she spoke. Little did she know, how glaring her smile was.
Gu Juexi stared at Ye Yuwei’s smiling face and realized for the first time that he didn’t really know that face.
There was sarcasm in her smile and that sarcasm made him lose his cool.
“You are disgusting like this, Ye Yuwei.” Gu Juexi said and left together with Yu Sha’er.
Ye Yuwei smiled and looked at two of them leaving the ward, until they were completely out of her sight.
And then she cried.
‘You are disgusting like this, Ye Yuwei.’
Ye Yuwei laughed out loud. Gu Juexi surely had no idea how the old Ye Yuwei disgusted herself.
Yu Sha’er was dragged out from the ward by Gu Juexi. Despite her burning face, Yu Sha’er chuckled to herself.
“I am sorry, Juexi. Mrs. Gu must be…”
Gu Juexi took Yu Sha’er to the emergency department for the wound on her face. Ye Yuwei must have used all her strength to slap Yu Sha’er. He could even see her body shaking when she slapped her.
How much hate there must be for Ye Yuwei to slap someone this hard?
And what the doctor said proved how hard the slap actually was–Yu Sha’er’s teeth were loosened and there was a tear at the corner of her mouth.
“Juexi, will I be disfigured? I know Mrs. Gu hates that I follow you everywhere, but I don’t want to be disfigured.” Yu Sha’er gripped on Gu Juexi’s arm, cried.
“You won’t be disfigured.” Gu Juexi comforted her.
Yu Sha’er nodded with her hands still on Gu Juexi’s wrist, “What if Mrs. Gu still refuses to forgive me?”
Gu Juexi looked down at Yu Sha’er with her swollen face, as if he was examining her.
Frightened by how Gu Juexi was looking at her, Yu Sha’er calmed her mind and asked, “Juexi, why are you looking at me like that?”
There was innocence in Yu Sha’er eyes. “Nothing. Let Qing postpone all your schedules and go and rest at home,” said Gu Juexi who then turned to leave.
“Won’t you stay with me, Juexi?” Yu Sha’er held Gu Juexi’s wrist again and looked at him pitifully.
Gu Juexi looked at Yu Sha’er without saying a word.
“Okay… get back to work then.” Yu Sha’er slowly let go Gu Juexi’s arm and said softly.
Gu Juexi told Qing to take good care of Yu Sha’er and left the emergency department.
Yu Sha’er yanked her own shirt in anger and hissed in pain when she accidentally touched the wound on her face. “I won’t forget this, Ye Yuwei… pssss––”
