The Little Princess’s Married-in Boyfriend (31)
It made Xu Menggui’s agitation become a sharp pain.
His gaze hardened, and he sneered, “That was to obtain your company. I didn’t think you’d be so stupid and be cheated after just a few sweet and honeyed words.”
Bai Weiwei’s voice gained heat. “I believed it because you said it. I trusted you.”
Saying this, she burst into tears. She sobbed as she desperately wiped her tears. “I believed you, I like you. Xu Menggui, I like you.”
Every sentence, I like you.
Accompanied by weeping blood.
Full of hopeless pain.
And unwilling trembling.
Like a moth rushing to a flame. Still rushing headlong into the fire, even though death was all that awaited.
Xu Menggui had never felt such ferocity and determination.
For a moment, his mind was blank.
His eyes took in her tearstained face, her appearance as she continued to say she liked him.
He instinctively took a few steps forward, reaching out a hand to touch her, to make her stop crying.
Her crying didn’t give him any sense of pleasure from taking revenge.
【Ding, the male lead’s favorability: 45.】
But his hand was halfway out when a teasing remark came from beside him.
“Yo yo, what pitiful crying. Xu Menggui, that big, bad wolf who doesn’t know how to cherish the opposite sex. He doesn’t want you. Why don’t you think about being with me?”
This sentence completely shattered the balance of the delicate atmosphere.
It wasn’t only Xu Menggui who was shocked awake.
It was also Bai Weiwei.
She blankly looked to the side.
And she saw another man. That man was…
She had seen the news. While M Group was growing, Luo Langyue was an important senior member of M Group.
Luo Langyue was somewhat surprised. “You know me?”
Saying this, he came over to Xu Menggui’s side and patted his shoulder. “This is my boss, Xu Menggui.”
He grinned. “My boss is amazing. In order to get your company, he specially pretended to be an honest person and swindled your emotions. Today is the day we take over the company, and we were about to hold a celebratory banquet. Want to join?”
Bai Weiwei’s face was pale. She suddenly laughed.
She seemed to have just awoken from a dream. The emotions on her face disappeared, and she looked at Xu Menggui with cold eyes filled with fury.
“I truly congratulate you, Xu Menggui.”
Xu Menggui’s body trembled. His expression was still calm, but his voice was somewhat unsteady.
“You can actually stay. After all, a new company needs new employees. I can give you a higher position…”
Clearly this wasn’t something he should say.
He should ridicule her and have her scram.
Cause her even more unbearable pain.
But when it came out of his mouth, it sounded like a plea to stay.
Xu Menggui shut up halfway through his sentence, his face turning unsightly.
But Bai Weiwei laughed as though she’d heard a joke. She suddenly walked forward a few steps.
Then she raised her hand and gave him a fierce slap.
This slap left no room for error.
It was a true, stinging pain1.
Xu Menggui furrowed his brows. The inside of his mouth had scraped against his teeth due to the slap, breaking the skin and causing bleeding.
Bai Weiwei’s eyes held extreme anger, as well as extreme sorrow.
“I was blind, I was really blind. Xu Menggui, the greatest regret in my life is falling in love with you.”
With that, she turned and left.
Xu Menggui hardly thought about it before he reached out to grab her wrist.
But Bai Weiwei threw him off, the chill in her eyes cold enough to pierce through bone. “Scram, don’t touch me.”
Xu Menggui’s fingers stiffened, and she ran out.
1: 入肉的痛: lit. enter + flesh pain.” If you’ve ever played a slapping game with friends, it’s probably the kind that’ll leave your palms red and stinging. Like the kind that you use to win the slapping game LOL.↩
Cheese: i dunno if its just me but i feel like this arc’s ml is particularly scummy. playing with people’s emotions like that isnt something anyone should do (so i say despite knowing that bww is just acting and manipulating xmg into falling in love with her lol)
