He did not know that the moment he stepped out of the hospital, his niece would make a taunting call to his wife . He could guess as much what that girl had told his partner, though he was not privy to its exact content .
As for the series of events that had happened thereafter, he was unable to predict them as well . If he knew that his niece was so adamant on eradicating his wife and was audacious enough to orchestrate such a grand plan right under his nose, he would be equally ruthless, too .
It was easy for him to deal with that rich missy . The bigger headache was his wife confronting him about his relationship with his niece . What could he possibly want with that lass? To him, Song Enya was a relative . She was his niece, and that was all . He had not reached the point where he would throw off his moral compass to hold incestuous thoughts about a relative, really .
Before Yun Shishi appeared in his life, he thought that he got along reasonably well with his niece .
Alas, the missy’s subsequent behavior and trouble-making antics disappointed him completely . He, thus, began to distance himself from her . It would be a lie to say that he had no regard for his niece, though, as he had treated her as his sister since they were young .
That was a girl whom he had doted on for more than a decade .
If it had not been for her, he would have been unable to walk out of his depression after losing his mother . She was his most beloved sister, and this kinship was something he held fast to .
He might be aloof by nature, but it did not mean that he was heartless .
He must admit, though, that he was useless for letting his only soft spot be made use of this time .
He was vexed, incensed, and resigned over the chain of events that had happened, but at least, it had extinguished the last bit of compassion he had reserved for his niece .
The only thing he could not accept was his wife doubting him .
“Can you put yourself in my shoes? Please give me a justification for your action . ”
“She was in the hospital . ” The man forced himself to calm down and tried to clarify the misunderstanding . “Her mother dropped on her knees and begged me to visit her in the hospital . ”
“What happened to her?”
“She cut her wrist . ”
“She cut her wrist?” Yun Shishi sniggered . “And you believed her?”
The man did not reply this time .
“Are you telling me that you broke your promise to me just for her sake?”
The man was thoroughly defenseless this time .
He could not even muster the energy to explain further .
He turned his back on her suddenly, rubbed his forehead with thorough resignation and, after throwing her a lingering look, walked away from the room decidedly without another word .
His two employees exchanged glances as they watched his back disappear from their sight .
Min Yu patted Qin Zhou’s shoulder lightly and instructed, “I’ll check on our boss, while you take care of the mistress . Please help us look after her!”
“Sure, I will . ”
With the reassurance from the agent, the assistant quickly gave chase to his departing superior .
As the woman watched her man leave without a word, she dropped to the bed on her bums like a deflated balloon . With her eyes dazed and her shoulders hanging lifelessly by her side, she started to sob quietly as her hands slowly covered her face .
Her manager’s heart softened at the sight of her despondency . As a silent observer, it was not for him to make a judgement on either of them . All he could tell was that the misunderstandings between this couple were bored out of their deep love for each other . It would take a while for them to resolve the thorny issues between them .
He walked over and attempted to comfort her .Please download our sponsor's game to support us!
