How did Zhuang Nai Nai answer him back then?
When Si Zheng Ting remembers her answer, he laughs self-deprecatingly.
She had looked so surprised at his question, “Do you actually need to ask that out loud? Of course my mother is more important!”
After saying that, as though sensing his change of mood, she laughed at him while tugging him in the arm, “My mom comes first, you comes second.”
So, inside her heart, he was and still is no. 2?
Was that why she had chosen her mother without thinking twice back then?
Maybe if he put himself in her place, he would feel like she did the right choice, but he was the one who got abandoned, so he feels very wronged right now. He knows that she was innocent, that she was helpless, but still……
He clenches his fist. He knows that he should get over this, that he should forgive her, because he knows he cannot live without her, but the fire of anger and jealousy inside his heart continues getting bigger.
When he sees the way Zhuang Nai Nai is speaking about the past without any hint of guilt, the fury in his heart rises even more.
His eyes gradually turn icy as he tries to hide his disappointment.
After Zhuang Nai Nai finds out that Si Zheng Ting has known about what happened back then, she grows quiet for a long time before finally saying, “I actually didn’t want to take the money, but my mother…”
Before she even finish speaking, Si Zheng Ting icily cuts her off, “But you took it anyway, didn’t you?”
Zhuang Nai Nai is stunned.
He sounds very emotional, like someone who has just gotten abandoned.
She looks at him in surprise, as though wanting to make sure that it was indeed him who said that sentence.
Si Zheng Ting stares at her, their eyes locking.
A flash of heartache can be seen in his eyes, one that disappears so quickly that it was almost imperceptible.
Zhuang Nai Nai’s heart clenches when she sees that.
Just as she wonders over what Si Zheng Ting is thinking, he opens the drawer of his desk and takes out a card. He puts it in front of her, “There is 10 million yuan inside that card.”
She frowns, wondering what it is he is trying to say.
“Zhuang Nai Nai, 300,000 yuan bought our three-years worth of relationship, that means that the average per year is 100,000 yuan. I am using this 10 million yuan to buy the next 100 years of your life.”
The room becomes quiet as Zhuang Nai Nai stares at him incredulously.
Did she hear wrong?
Si Zheng Ting would never say that to her, right?
But, the cold-looking bank card on the table says that everything she heard has been real.
Her hands fall limply to her sides as she shudders. She feels like she has been submerged inside an ocean of ice cold water.
What is the difference between him and his mother?
They both use money to ridicule people!
