The Little Princess’s Married-in Boyfriend (22)
But his voice was gentle. “Sleep, Weiwei. I won’t leave you.”
Bai Weiwei trustingly nodded, then she obediently went to sleep. Her fingers clutched the edge of his clothes, refusing to let go.
The ridicule at the corners of Xu Menggui’s lips slowly disappeared.
She slept peacefully and trustingly beside him, as though knowing he wouldn’t harm her.
The girl’s beautiful lashes shrouded those clear pupils, and her snow-white face was flushed.
One look and one could see it was the look of a high-born noble pampered since childhood.
He stared blankly, his fingers softly caressing her face.
In the past, he never dared to hope that he could run into a pampered girl like her.
It was like many years ago, when he looked at her while amongst the heaps of trash.
The humiliation of the princess and the wild dog.
Accompanied him to the present.
Xu Menggui said softly, “Did you know? That time you looked at me like I was a wild dog, and today I came to you to throw you into the garbage pile and exchange our identities.”
That year, her “filthy” and “dirty.”
Became his inner demon of humiliation.
The Xu family’s revenge was finished, and Bai Qingshui had also fallen. The plans to destroy the Bai family’s company were beginning to take shape.
Then came the revenge against Bai Weiwei.
Once all the people who made him feel humiliation were crushed into dust.
He would definitely achieve a peaceful mind and no longer suffer from agonizing nightmares.

Bai Qingshui was asleep for a week.
The Bai family company, without a leader, became chaotic.
The inexperienced Bai Weiwei, in order to maintain the company’s affairs, braced herself.
A pile of documents, a heap of technical terms, and yet another stack of work.
It put Bai Weiwei under great pressure1.
Every time she couldn’t finish her work, she would look anxiously at Xu Menggui.
Xu Menggui would always put on an act and sigh, “Weiwei, the company is yours. You must take responsibility.”
Bai Weiwei’s eyes would grow wet whenever she heard this. Her teary eyes could shatter other people’s hearts.
She suddenly threw a folder. “I quit, I won’t do it. Everyone’s probably laughing at me.”
Then she aggrievedly lay on the desk.
Looking even more pitiful.
Xu Menggui smiled helplessly. He picked up the folder then took up a pen to help her with work.
Bai Weiwei smiled. “I knew you wouldn’t not care about me.”
Xu Menggui sighed. “If you gave me power like this, and one day I betrayed you, what would you do?”
Bai Weiwei looked at him with tenderness and said seriously, “It wouldn’t be you. People all over the world will betray me, but not you.”
Xu Menggui’s pen stopped, drawing a line incorrectly.
As though nothing happened, he crossed out the incorrect line and continued, “If–I’m saying if–I really betrayed you.”
Bai Weiwei frowned in distress and became awkward. “If you really betrayed me, there’s no other way. I could only forgive you.”
Xu Menggui looked up, staring at her blankly.
Bai Weiwei picked up a document and smacked it lightly against his head. She imitated his helpless sigh. “Ai, there’s no way. Who told me to like you so much? So much that if you betray me, I can’t help but want to forgive you.”
Xu Menggui looked at her beautiful and innocent appearance, and his fingers gripping the pen turned faintly pale.
He lowered his eyes. For a moment, he couldn’t think of how to respond to her confession.
Perhaps these words were too naive, but at the same time, they were too beautiful.
Making Xu Menggui find it unbearable to part with them.
