Song Yan entered through the front door. From a distance away, she saw Ling Ciye sitting on the swing. Beside him was a woman who had her hair pinned up in a bun. From her back view, the woman looked small and petite and appeared to be quite young.

Was it his new girlfriend?

Song Yan pressed down her lips and walked briskly towards them.

“I really didn’t expect that you’d find a new woman so soon.”

Ling Ciye turned around and saw her behind him. “Why are you here?”

“If I didn’t come, would I have known that you found a woman so quickly?”

Once her words came out, the woman on the swing turned around and she realized she had made a fool of herself.

The woman talking to Ling Ciye was actually An Xiaoning.

“This smell of jealousy is so strong it can even reach the Pacific Ocean.” An Xiaoning got up to leave. “You guys have a chat.”

Jin Qingyan, who was about to serve two glasses of fruit juice over at that moment, bumped into An Xiaoning. “Here.”

“Don’t go over – look.”

Jin Qingyan narrowed his eyes, then said, “Oh, it’s Song Yan. What’s she doing here?”

“Don’t know. She mistook me for Ling Ciye’s new girlfriend.”

Jin Qingyan turned around, going back into the house with her. “These two really have an endless source of troubles in their relationship.”

With the atmosphere completely silent for a whole minute, Song Yan went forward and sat down at where An Xiaoning had been sitting. She turned to look at him. “Why didn’t you come and find me? Were you waiting for me to find you first?”

Ling Ciye looked far ahead quietly, then replied, “I think our relationship these few years has been tiring.”

“Have you found someone else?”

“No,” Ling Ciye responded resolutely. “If I did, I would definitely admit it. I’m not someone who will hide it.”

Song Yan bit down her lip as she muttered, “Let’s patch things up.”

Ling Ciye looked at her. “I think being with you is tiring. I don’t want this to continue anymore.”

“Ling Ciye.”

“Umm.”

“You… are you intending not to patch things up with me anymore?”

“Umm, yes.” Ling Ciye got up and headed towards the living room. “We’re adults already. Whatever we want, we should probably think it through properly. Breaking and patching up with you so many times, I’m sick of it already.”

Song Yan gazed at his backview, her eyes turning red. There was even some disbelief in her eyes at the thought of this relationship of a few years coming to an end.

They were together in high school and split because of a misunderstanding. A few years later, they had to part ways again?

She didn’t want this to happen.

Song Yan sprung up and chased after him, grabbing onto his arm. “Ciye.”

Ling Ciye turned around. “Is there anything else?”

“Don’t be like this. Let’s get back together. After we get back together, let’s not ever split again, okay?”

“You say this everytime, but how does it always end up?”

“I’ll change my temper.”

Ling Ciye appeared persistent this time. “But I don’t believe that.”

“I really will change.”

“I still have some things to talk to Qingyan about. If there’s nothing else, you should go back.”

“Ciye…”

He broke free of her hand and turned to leave.

For Chi Rui’er, the past few days were a turmoil.

She felt that time had passed too fast.

She had not thought of anything, and a day passed just like that.

Before the thought of what Xu Youran wanted to do came to her, another day passed.

Finally, the third day came.

She was called over by Xu Youran.

On the way there, Chi Rui’er was on pins and needles. Finally, she arrived at a hotel room.

Xu Youran was sitting while facing the window when Chi Rui’er entered and called out to her, “Ms. Xu.”

The guard closed the door and Xu Youran turned around. “You’re here.”

“Umm.” Her legs were tense as she muttered, “The results of my checkup will be out tomorrow, I don’t know if I’ll have any disease.”

Xu Youran stood up and gazed at her, leaning against the table. “What a pity then, you won’t be able to get the results.”

“What do you mean?”

“The reason I saved you was to let you live for only a while longer. You’ll still die anyway. Now, I’m giving you a chance. Call your mother and tell her the pin number of your bank account. Five minutes later, you’ll die.”

Chi Rui’er looked at her. “Then I’ll call my mother.”

“I’ll give you five minutes. Instruct her about everything you have to properly. I’m being very merciful towards you already, I don’t give other people such an opportunity.”

Chi Rui’er’s hands were shaking as she took out her phone, saving the previous recording well. Thereafter, she called Jin Qingyan, “Hello, Mother. The pin number for my bank account is XXXXXX. Please continue to live well. You have heart disease, so you need to take your medication on time. The amount in my bank account is enough to sustain you for the rest of your life…”

After saying a long bunch of heartfelt words, her time was up.

Xu Youran spoke. “After I saved you from the police station, you’ve worked for me for quite a long time. It should be a good relief for you. Now, it’s time to use the remaining value you have.”

“What do you want me to do?”

“Jump down the building.” These words came out lightly from Xu Youran’s mouth. On the other hand, Chi Rui’er’s face changed completely.

Although she had mentally prepared herself sufficiently, it was still difficult for her to withstand this sort of fear.

Both her legs were shaking, and even her voice was slightly trembling. “Ms. Xu, are you going to push me down the building?”

“That’s right.” Xu Youran laughed lighlty. “Only then will the news of you and that old Mr. Jin spread like wildfire. Afterwards, I shall see how Jin Qingyan handles it. Only when a life is involved will the matter escalate. If you jump down from here, everyone will think it’s because that old Jin fellow didn’t take responsibility for you, which caused you to take your own life. This time, the Jin family reputation will be tarnished for a long, long time.”

“Do you really think things will go according to your wish?” Chi Rui’er asked. “Before I die, can you tell me, exactly what grudge do you hold against the Jin family? May I know?”

Xu Youran looked at her. “Why? Even if you die, you want to become a ghost that knows the truth?”

“That’s right. I just want to know. I hope you can fulfill my wish.”

Xu Youran did not reveal it, of course. “Even though this is your wish, I still won’t tell you. I can only say that this grudge is very strong. I hate every single one of the Jin family. That’s all.”

Knock, knock, knock. The sound of knocking came from the room door.

Xu Youran looked up, signalling the guard to see who it was.

However, even when he leaned at the door hole, he couldn’t see who was outside.

It seemed like it had been blocked.

Meanwhile, the knocking on the door continued.

Finally, the guard used the room card to open the door.

Standing outside the door was none other than Jin Qingyan.

He headed into the room with his phone in hand. At that point, his phone was still connected on a call with Chi Rui’er.

Seeing that he had come, Chi Rui’er instantly heaved a sigh of relief.

Xu Youran, on the other hand, was surprised. She never expected that he would come.

Staring at his face, Xu Youran asked, “What is Mr. Jin here to find me for?”

Jin Qingyan turned his gaze towards Chi Rui’er and said, “You go first.”

Chi Rui’er nodded and was about to go out, but she was unfortunately stopped by Xu Youran’s men.

Jin Qingyan declared, “I have a phone recording of the conversation the both of you had just now. If Chi Rui’er is thrown down the building or if you find trouble for her in the future, this will be sent to the police station and the media.”

Xu Youran clenched her fist tightly into a ball. “The two of you are actually in cahoots.”
