The Red Second Generation’s Abandoned Former Wife (44)
Bai Weiwei said softly, “Okay, I’m coming.”
As Su Shian looked at the bowl, his fingers trembled. He was so miserable that he even hallucinated.
At the end of the table came the sound of a chair being pulled out. Su Shian was frozen stiff.
He pursed his lips. His eyes were red, his neck bent forward1, and he looked like he was about to hang himself from a crooked tree.
Then he slowly moved his eyes and saw Bai Weiwei sitting at the table.
It wasn’t an illusion, it was real.
Su Shian held the bowl. For a time he did not know how to react.
When Bai Weiwei gave him a faint look, he suddenly woke up and immediately placed the bowl in front of her.
Bai Weiwei nodded indifferently, then let the nanny serve the rice. She began to eat and ignored him.
Pregnant women were exceptionally prone to hunger.
Su Shian sat down too. His hands and feet were so stiff he didn’t know where to put them.
He stared at Bai Weiwei, for fear that if he looked away, she would vanish.
Bai Weiwei finished her meal without saying anything. She stood up and took a few steps.
Su Shian blurted out, “Are you leaving?”
Didn’t she go with Chen Wenfeng?
Did she come back just to have one final meal with him?
Bai Weiwei calmly asked: “Are you driving me away?”
Su Shian immediately responded in an urgent tone: “I didn’t mean that.”
Bai Weiwei raised her cold and indifferent eyes, like she was looking at a stranger.
“We haven’t divorced yet. When we get divorced, I’ll move out.”
Su Shian gripped his chair. With a pained look, he tried to hide the disappointment in his heart, “When do you want to divorce me.”
“I’ll sort out my things and then I’ll go to a divorce lawyer to write an agreement. In about a week, we’ll get divorced.”
Su Shian didn’t say the tens of thousands of words he had to ask her to stay.
Bai Weiwei had already gone upstairs.
He stood in place for a long time before he sighed of relief, “At least she was still willing to come back.”
Even if only for divorce, she came back.
Upstairs, Bai Weiwei took out a snack to munch on and she slept in her room.
There was also a TV in the room and she was watching 《Naughty Blue Cat’s Three Thousand Questions》.
System: “You aren’t going to continue to abuse Su Shian? Isn’t it necessary to abuse him to the point he doubts life? You can’t just go with Chen Wenfeng.”
Bai Weiwei: “There is also a need for finesse in abuse. If I abuse too much, it will give him some hope to hang on to.”
System: It turns out that this too is a technique.
Bai Weiwei: “Continue to abuse him, give hope, then abuse him……”
System: It had never felt that the male lead was so pitiful before.
Su Shian knew she was in the room. He stood outside her door all night, but he was afraid to knock on the door.
Was she very sad, very angry with him? Would she lose sleep?
The next day, Bai Weiwei woke up refreshed, only to discover that Su Shian had crouched at her door.
Bai Weiwei gave herself a haggard look with makeup. Her spirit was too good, it didn’t conform to the character she was playing.
Then she went out.
Su Shian immediately hid.
Bai Weiwei pretended not to know, leaving without even eating breakfast.
Su Shian instantly ran out, shocked, “Where are you going?”
Bai Weiwei’s pace paused. She looked at him apathetically, unconcerned with whether or not he went out.
She walked slowly and Su Shian, fearful that she would leave, followed her.
Bai Weiwei went to the best local food stall. She ordered porridge and some side dishes to pack up.
This porridge was better than the nanny’s.
Su Shian came over at once and took the things in her hand.
Bai Weiwei was wary, “Buy your own to eat.”
Su Shian was at a loss. “I won’t eat it, I’ll carry it for you.”
Bai Weiwei looked at him impassively and walked ahead, ignoring him.
Suddenly Su Shian shouted, “Weiwei, come back.”
Bai Weiwei said to the system: “It really is ‘a day without punishment and he’ll climb on the house and remove the shingles2.’ Yesterday he was so cautious, today he dares to yell at me.”
System: “No, no, you listen to him.”
Bai Weiwei: “No, we’re in a cold war, I have to abuse him.”
Suddenly Su Shian grabbed her arm and pulled her back. But, he was too anxious, his body fell forward.
A car slammed into him, directly sending him flying.
The car saw Bai Weiwei wasn’t hit and rapidly sped away.
Su Shian rolled to the ground covered in blood. He checked Bai Weiwei. Realizing that she was all right he breathed a sigh of relief and fainted.
Bai Weiwei with the system: “……”
After a while, she asked, “What if the target is dead?”
System: “The world collapses, you become gray ash. You see, abuse, ah, abuse, ah. The male lead was abused to death.”

2: 一天不虐，上房揭瓦了: based on a story about two naughty sons who got beaten once a day because they were just that troublesome. One day, their mom has to go work in the farm all day because her husband injures his leg on business, so she’s so tired that she comes back and sleeps without hitting them. In the middle of the night it starts raining, and she wakes up to water leaking from the roof and finds out that the sons lifted the roof tiles lol↩
