Ji Shiting looked at her and said, “Then why did you reject my marriage proposal the other day?”
“That proposal came as a shock… But the more I thought about it, the more I regretted it.” Ye Shengge smiled and said. “I didn’t expect someone to drug me yesterday, even less that you would help me, so I reckon that’s destiny.”
“Ms. Ye Shengge,” said the man. “I don’t like being treated like a fool, and I don’t want to be used.”
Ye Shengge was dazed.
He would definitely think she was using him if she told him the real reason… The man would mind it, but she couldn’t gain his trust without telling him the truth.
Ji Shiting smiled and walked into the shower room.
Ye Shengge kept pondering how to explain, hearing the sounds of water coming from the shower room.
Before she could figure it out, that man had walked out of the bathroom, wearing a suit.
The man was exquisite…
“Actually, we don’t have to marry each other,” said Ye Shengge. “I feel like marriage is a big deal… Actually, I’m more than satisfied with being your woman. I can be here anytime you want!”
She realized she had been behaving like an idiot before. Her intention was to sleep with that man, and marriage didn’t matter at all.
Ji Shiting looked at her while buttoning his shirt, “So, you just want to sleep with me?”
“Yes… Well no…” Ji Shiting couldn’t even articulate herself. “Even though I can’t win your heart, I can at least win your body.”
Ji Shiting gazed at her.
There must be something that she is hiding.
He then looked at her cheek. That birthmark was still red, however… Suddenly, an explanation came into his mind.
That birthmark seemed to be smaller than it had been last time he had seen her.
“What do you think?” Ye Shengge asked as she was worried that he might see through her. “That’s not outrageous, is it?”
“I heard that you’re interested in the lead actress choice?” Ji Shiting suddenly changed the topic. “What if I give you the right to make the decision?”
“Really?” Ye Shengge’s eyes gleamed. “What about me being the lead actress?”
“Really?” Ji Shiting couldn’t look more solemn. “Are you saying you’ve found a way to deal with your birthmark?”
Ji Shiting sounded very affirmative.
Ye Shengge’s heart sank as she reckoned he might’ve figured it out.
Especially when he was staring at her, it was as if he could see through every single thought she had.
“How can it be.” Ye Shengge licked her lips. “I would’ve dealt with it if I had. All I need is more foundation and concealer, then I can cover the birthmark.”
“Really?” Ji Shiting curled his lips.
That woman would always subconsciously lick her lips when she was lying.
Although the assumption sounded ridiculous, it was the most likely explanation, otherwise, nothing could explain why that woman was so passionate about him out of nowhere.
Which meant… That woman was using him as a cure.
No wonder she had jumped up out of excitement in the bathroom just now.
Ji Shiting didn’t know why he had gotten so upset as he was always aloof, and he’d never cared whether women liked him or not.
Ye Shengge looked at him, terrified. She said, “Anyway… It’s a minor issue… What do you think?”
Ji Shiting stared at her, smiled and said, “No problem”
Ye Shengge clenched her fist.
Even if she couldn’t get rid of the birthmark just then, getting the role was still good news to her.
As long as the major investor said yes, she could do the shooting with a heavy makeup.
“But I have one condition.” Ji Shiting saw how exhilarated she was.
“What condition? I’ll agree to anything.” Ye Shengge blushed.
“Stop hounding me,” said Ji Shiting. “Otherwise, I’ll tell them to change the lead actress.”
Ye Shengge was dazed, like someone poured a pot of cold water on her.
JI Shiting said sneakily, “Acting is your ultimate goal, isn’t it?”
And then, he turned around and left.
Ye Shengge stared at his back, and then, she came to the realization that Ji Shiting must’ve figured out the truth.
