1210 He Was Mad

Ye Yuwei looked at her toes with downcast eyes. 

Gu Juexi suddenly jumped off the bed. His quick movement caught Ye Yuwei's attention and she slowly looked up.

In the blink of an eye, Gu Juexi was standing right in front of her and had pinned her against the door forcefully.

Gu Juexi pressed down on Ye Yuwei's chest, as if he was trying to stop her heart from beating.

His warm breath fanned her face as her back dug into the door behind her painfully.

Ye Yuwei looked up into Gu Juexi's enraged eyes. He had looked the same when he had been forced to marry her, and his eyes had shone with the same rage when she walked up to him.

Last time, Ye Yuwei would be frightened by his beast-like gaze. Now—

It was similarly horrifying.

"Ye Yuwei, what makes you think that staying here is sufficient to atone for the terrible things the Ye family did to us? To make up for the lost fatherly love in my childhood? To fix the pain my mother had to suffer her whole life? To amend Gu Tianmu's broken family?"

His words were like knives that sliced through Ye Yuwei's heart mercilessly.

This was what the Ye family owed them. This was what Ye Di owed them. Regardless of whether Wen Lan was the mastermind behind it, Ye Di had been the most crucial executioner.

Ye Yuwei lifted her gaze. She was finding it hard to breathe under his hold.

She didn't have a time machine to turn back time, and she certainly couldn't fix the tragedy of the Gu family.

"Gu Juexi," Ye Yuwei gasped, her chest aching. This man had gone crazy, otherwise he would never be so forceful.

Gu Juexi's paranoia had returned. He stubbornly thought that her stay was just for atonement.

Should he be this angry?

Yes, he should. He should be very angry.

"My chest hurts, I can't breathe," Ye Yuwei whimpered. 

She wasn't pretending, it was real.

Gu Juexi was using too much strength. 

He was mad.

Although Ye Yuwei spoke very weakly, it made Gu Juexi freeze in shock. He recoiled and stepped back, watching as Ye Yuwei gasped for breath and slowly slid down to the floor.

Gu Juexi wanted to take a step forward, but he was frozen in place.

Sitting on the floor, Ye Yuwei slowly composed her breathing. Every breath she took made her chest ache. That crazy man.

Ye Yuwei leaned back against the door. Slowly, she lifted her head to lock eyes with Gu Juexi. She stretched out her hands towards him, making an 'I want a hug' gesture.

Gu Juexi's eyes widened slightly. His rage disappeared instantly with her timid action.

With a tense expression, Gu Juexi squatted down. Ye Yuwei curled her arms around his neck and leaned her head on his shoulder.

"Gu Juexi, am I the kind of person who would sacrifice myself just for atonement?" Ye Yuwei asked weakly and took another painful breath.

"You are, you sacrificed yourself for gratitude," Gu Juexi mumbled, repressing his heartache.

Just like when she married him in the first place, she did it to repay a debt of gratitude.

To return the favor of saving her.

Ye Yuwei chuckled at Gu Juexi's whine, but stopped when her chest ached sharply.
