After she said that, her tears came gushing down from her eyes.
If those were her genuine feelings, why was she crying?
Ye Sijue was no fool. He could still see through her with a single glance.
“I really can’t… Ye Sijue, I’m sorry. I’m really sorry.” Large drops of tears fell from her eyes.
Annie twisted her hand and tried to break free of him.
But Ye Sijue grabbed her tightly. It didn’t hurt her, but it didn’t allow her to break free either.
Even if it hurt her, he still wouldn’t let her leave him.
“Can you let go of me?” Annie was a little scared of the look that he was giving her.
“Let you go? If I were to let go, would I lose you to someone else? I don’t want to let go of you.” Ye Sijue’s eyes darkened.
If he let go of her, would she go to Chris?
At the thought of her marrying Chris made Ye Sijue’s blood boil.
“Annie, I don’t understand. Can you tell me? Why do you have to be engaged to him? Can’t you cancel the engagement? If there is any trouble, I will help you with it.”
As long as he didn’t have to let her go.
Annie stared at him blankly, shook her head, and said, “I can’t… We have already told people about the engagement. It can’t be canceled!”
“Not even for me?” Ye Sijue stared fixedly at her eyes.
Annie stared back at him and the two locked eyes for a while.
Suddenly, she bent down and bit his arm in an attempt to make him release her. However, Ye Sijue didn’t even flinch. Bite marks could be seen on Ye Sijue’s skin.
Annie felt an aching in her heart.
She suddenly snapped out of it and pulled her hand back, not caring about the possibility of injury.
Ye Sijue looked at her solemnly. Seeing her resolute expression, he suddenly let go of her hand.
Annie staggered backwards, her little face startled as if she hadn’t expected him to let go of her so suddenly.
She retreated quickly, putting some distance between the two of them.
“I’m sorry,” she apologized, weeping as she ran out.
Watching her run away, Ye Sijue clenched his fist and punched the bed.
Dizziness came over him, and his vision went dark.
Ye Sijue propped up his forehead with his fist and tried to stay awake but he closed his eyes and fell asleep.
Later, he woke up again.
Two familiar faces stood beside the bed.
Upon seeing him open his eyes, a petite figure came up to him. “Ye Sijue! You’re finally awake? You really scared us. We thought you would… Let’s not talk about those things! It’s good that you’re awake now.”
Ye Sijue frowned. He wanted to get up but found himself totally weak.
“Xiaoxiao?” His voice was very rough as he said that.
Mu Xiaoxiao and Yin Shaojie were standing in front of him.
“Do you want to ask us what are we doing here?” Mu Xiaoxiao asked. Without waiting for his response, she continued, saying, “We came here because of the thing between you and Annie, but…”
Mu Xiaoxiao’s face looked sad. “It seems like you and Annie are not destined to be together.”
