Those words… If he sent her those words two days ago when she didn't realize she had feelings for He Jichen, she would definitely feel tempted to follow her heart and say yes if Yuguang Ge insisted, even though she would feel bad for cheating on Yuguang Ge with his brother. The very thought of being able to make up for everything she owed him after sleeping with He Jichen gave her the strong urge to nod and say yes.
But now, it was too late... It wasn't that she didn't want to promise him - she just couldn't.
Ji Yi pursed her lips and was ready to refuse when she saw another message from "He Yuguang": "Manman, I guarantee I don't mind. No matter what the reason is, I don't mind. If there's ever a day I go back on my word, let heaven unleash its wrath upon me!"
Clearly, Ji Yi was in the wrong. Why did it seem like Yuguang Ge was acting like the one who made a huge mistake?
Ji Yi's heart was already incredibly guilty towards He Yuguang, but now she felt even worse.
This isn't right! I can't mess around with him any longer; otherwise, he might really make me have a change of heart.
What's more, she made her mind up long ago and already carried out her decisions - she rejected He Jichen and decided not to string Yuguang Ge along.
With that thought, Ji Yi started to type: "Sorry Yuguang Ge, there's no way I can promise you."
As Ji Yi's fingers typed out each and every word, she felt her heart cry violently in pain.
She forced herself to ignore the pain and continue to tap with her incredibly shaky fingers: "Even if you don't care, there's no way I can still promise you, Yuguang Ge. It's me, I'm not good enough and I'm not worthy. Don't say anything else. I've already made my mind up. Sorry. I'm really sorry, Yuguang Ge. If it's possible, I hope we don't keep in contact after we finalize the divorce."
As she typed this, Ji Yi's eyes turned misty. Barely able to see the screen, she bit down hard and gritted her chattering teeth as she then typed: "If it's possible, it's best that we don't keep in contact."
Ji Yi didn't dare read over the line she wrote. After she typed the final period, she immediately tapped "send." Without bothering to see if "He Yuguang" read it, she hurriedly got up and said goodbye with a trembling voice. Without giving herself any chance to go back, she quickly picked up her bag and walked down the mountain.
She was only half a meter away when the tears she held back for so long came rolling down from her eyes.
She raised a hand to frantically wipe her face then walked faster.
The mountainous roads were winding and it was dark, so Ji Yi stumbled as she walked. On her way down, she even tripped twice, but she didn't feel any pain and continued to hurriedly walk down.
She was wearing high heels, so she didn't walk particularly steadily. When she tripped for the third time, her shoes flew off. She continued to stumble down bare-footed while ignoring the pain from the rocks under her feet.
There were two cars parked at the foot of the mountain. The driver who picked her up sat inside one car with the lights on while playing on his phone.
Because he was paying full attention to his phone, the driver didn't notice her walk up to the car. It wasn't until she reached her hand out and pulled the car door open that the driver noticed something was odd. Then he turned to look in her direction.
