His One Love - Chapter 72
Shen Yi came back half an hour later than usual today. Lu Wanwan discovered he had a new scratch on his forehead, which wasn’t too long, nor too short, it was just around the size of a fingernail.
It looked like it was done by a woman who had used her nails to scratch him.
The sunset light was dim, the warm yellow light of the sunset was shining on her figure.
Having just recovered from her illness, she was still a bit weak.
Her pair of round and humid eyes were wide-open as she asked, “Someone beat you ?”
In front of other people, Shen Yi appeared very well-tempered. He would very rarely argue with other people and, after high school, he had never again fought with anyone else.
How did he get injured out of nowhere? It was even done by a woman.
Shen Yi shook his head and denied: “No.”
Lu Wanwan’s clear eyes stared at him, pointing to his wounds, she asking, “Then how did you get the wound on your forehead ?”
The corners of Shen Yi’s mouth curled up, he couldn’t help but smile: “Your mother scratched me.”
Lu Wanwan raised her tone, visibly in disbelief as she asked in astonishment, “My mom!? My mom beat you up?”
But then thinking about it, this really seemed like something her mom could do.
After all, her mother had been upset with Shen Yi for a long time now. Two days ago, she even made a phone call to ask her what had happened to the divorce certificate? Her mother was probably the only mother in this world who sincerely hoped for her daughter to get a divorce.
Lu Wanwan could only tell her mother the truth, she told her that Shen Yi didn’t consent to this divorce and that she had no solution either.
She never expected that her mother would act so quickly and violently, and that she would rush to Shen Yi’s company to deal with him.
Lu Wanwan looked awkward as she asked, “What did my mother say to you?”
Shen Yi’s gaze froze for a moment, before the corners of his mouth curved. Without any emotion, he dryly recited, word by word, all the original words that Lu Wanwan’s mother had said to him today, “Don’t waste Wanwan’s youth, there are two-legged men all over the street, my daughter doesn’t need you and isn’t lacking good matches, she has still men by her side with whom she’s still in contact, if you’re self-aware, then obediently sign the divorce agreement for me, this old mom. If not, then once we’re in court, our Lu family can make it so that you’re left with no money at all, leaving you to roll out like a poor and naked egg. If it comes to that, you can’t say that our Lu family is insensitive.”
Lu Wanwan: “…..”
What her mother said was really good.
The wound on the corner of Shen Yi’s forehead had already scabbed and wasn’t hurting anymore.
He lazily asked, “So the men around Wanwan have always been in touch? If mom hadn’t told me, I wouldn’t have known about it.”
Lu Wanwan: “……”
Not knowing what she could say, she simply kept her mouth closed.
Lu Wanwan tilted her chin and pretended to be unperturbed as she said with a straight face: “I’m pretty, isn’t it normal that I’m well-liked by people ?”
Shen Yi smiled indulgently, without getting angry: “Mmh, it’s normal.”
After a moment’s pause, with a frivolous tone, he said, “But Wanwan better not go too far.”
Shen Yi was reminding her not to exceed his limits.
He was a man of his word, he remembered everything in his heart, if came a day where he had a mind to settle the accounts, most probably Lu Wanwan really couldn’t afford it.
Lu Wanwan’s chin was left with a slightly red mark. She hardened her voice and complained: “You’re the one who goes too far.”
Shen Yi looked at her with amusement as he asked, “Tell me, how am I going too far ?”
The words that came to Lu Wanwan were blocked in her throat at once, the man in front of her, hadn’t done those unbelievable things and hadn’t hurt her yet.
The tip of her nose turned red, as if she had suffered a great grievance. In the end, like a rogue, she said : “Anyway, it’s all your fault.”
“What you say is what it is.” He laughed lightly and said meaningfully, “But I’m doing it for Wanwan’s good.”
He took everything
All of his love
And dedicated it all to her.
In the same way, what Lu Wanwan should give back to him should also be all of her love. If it was less than that, she would have to pay back with her freedom.
After she had proposed a divorce, Shen Yi and her had never shared the same bed again.
After showering, when Lu Wanwan walked out of the bathroom in her silk pajamas, Shen Yi, wearing a shirt, was sitting at the head of the bed, with his jacket and tie in his hand.
She froze and asked, in a foolish manner, “Did you walk into the wrong room?”
Shen Yi’s eyebrows raised up, he said, “I’ll go wash up, you remember to blow dry your hair before going to sleep.”
If Shen Yi wanted to sleep with her, even if Lu Wanwan wanted to chase the person out she wouldn’t be able to. She fell asleep on her side, her neck looked slender and delicate, the back of the neck emitted the faint fragrance of jasmine flower, it was refreshing.
