If she can, Zhuang Nai Nai really wants to throw the card to Si Zheng Ting’s cold face.
But, when she remembers Gu De Shou’s threats, when she remembers her mother, she hesitates for a moment. She unclenches her fists.
Her mother is her Achilles’ heel.
She lowers her head. Her original intention to come here has been to explain everything, but now, she does not have to do so anymore.
Things have come to this stage, would he even believe her?
Now that she thinks about it, after they meet again, it is always her who chases after him, accommodating him.
He has been treating her well lately, to the point where she thought they could get back to how they were before.
But what did she get in return?
She gets a cold-looking bank card.
She purses her lips and takes a couple of deep breaths. She reins in her anger. She picks up the card and self-deprecatingly says, “Then, I will accept it, though I don’t think I can live to reach 100 years of age.”
As for Si Zheng Ting, he regrets his action the moment he threw the card out.
He knows he is doing something foolish out of anger, but, he really cannot stomach the idea of her abandoning him again.
5 years back, she left without looking back.
He wants to tie her down, to lock her next to himself. Seeing her so sad makes him want to take his words back, but before he even gets to do that, she speaks first. His heart sinks when he hears what she says.
He would have felt better if she had hit him and scolded him instead.
He loosens the button on his collar before cruelly saying, “I want your loyalty.”
Is he intending to buy her loyalty with that 10 million yuan?
Zhuang Nai Nai looks down, unwilling to look at him, “I understand.”
She looks at the clock. It is now 1 pm, “I need to go back to work. Is there anything else you would like to say?”
Si Zheng Ting looks at her. Even he does not know what he is feeling right now.
She clearly promised to stay by his side, but why does he feel like they are getting farther and farther away from each other?
After a moment, he says, “You can go now.”
She turns around and walks out of his office.
The moment she steps out of the door, her expression crumbles. She would usually chat with Ji Chen and Da Zhuang, but this time, she simply leaves with her head lowered.
The moment the elevator’s door closes, her tense body immediately relaxes. All the emotions that she had held in immediately comes out.
She can hear herself making a miserable sound.
She looks at her own reflection in the walls. Her eyes are hollow and her face is deathly pale, it is as though she has lost her soul.
Right now, she cannot even afford the luxury to cry.
Zhuang Nai Nai returns to the 18th floor like a lost soul. She makes her way back to her seat with her head lowered. Zhang Chao Wen is already waiting for her there, “It was only this morning that you got scolded, and now you actually dares to return late from lunch! Are you doing this on purpose?”
She is not in the mood to deal with him. She walks past him with her head lowered.
