His One Love - Chapter 98
She most definitely had long already seen through his entire person, and that was the reason why she had made such great efforts and gone through such troubles to try and divorce him.
When Shen Yi returned home from the Shen family mansion, he felt somewhat empty in his heart, but was unable to tell what was wrong.
When he opened the door of the apartment but didn’t see her, this feeling of something being wrong spread completely in his heart.
Shen Yi would be unable to put words on the way he felt when he saw, inside the bathroom, the bathtub full of water and the knife. At that very moment, the self-control he was taking pride in was completely unable to keep under control the violence hidden in the bottom of his heart.
His gentleness and his calmness, false under the pretense, at that very moment, completely collapsed.
Shen Yi’s very nature was cold and hard and twisted.
These days Lu Wanwan hadn’t even noticed it herself, but the look in her eyes as she looked towards that window that once cost her her life, appeared infatuated and mesmerized.
That was why Shen Yi sealed the windowsill in front of her eyes. At first, he thought that she had more or less put down those ideas.
But Lu Wanwan was still the same Lu Wanwan, she wouldn’t listen to his words and would always challenge his limits.
At this moment Shen Yi was staring at her face, full of smiles, with a little helplessness, “The knife is really sharp, if you put your fingers on the edge of the blade, with a slight cut, the wound will be very deep and the blood won’t stop flowing.”
Wasn’t that rubbish nonsense ??! That was a new knife that she had bought after carefully selecting it, and she had the store sharpen it on purpose! How could it not be sharp?
If she had to die, she wanted to die quickly and less painfully, what would she do if the knife got stuck in the middle of her cutting her wrist ?
Lu Wanwan only dared to yell at the bottom of her heart, she had always been able to adapt herself to the situation, and now at this time, it was obvious that she shouldn’t confront Shen Yi head to head.
“Yi Yi.” She kicked her feet, while smiling bashfully: “If you want to play those kind of particular you know what, let’s wait until evening and I will play with you, alright? I’m hungry now, I want to get out of bed and eat, help me untie the thing on my ankle, alright?”
The tone of her voice was so sweet, she got goose bumps all over from hearing herself.
Looking carefully, the chains on her ankles seemed to be made of gold, the workmanship was fine and it looked very beautiful attached on the ankles. At every movement, the chains would tinkle a little.
Lu Wanwan found it a bit hard to accept, in the past no matter how perverted Shen Yi was, but he never got such a thing on her body.
Shen Yi did not seem to be listening to her at all, he brought out from nowhere the knife she had bought and gently placed the knife on the bedhead.
His eyes were dark and somber. It was impossible to guess what he was thinking.
Shen Yi’s fingers slowly crawled down her body before finally landing on her ankle, which he grabbed with his five fingers, making her shiver from their iciness.
He withdrew his hand and picked up the knife. He said with a smile, “Were you planning to take advantage of my absence to cut your own artery with one cut of the knife and watch your own blood run dry as you’d die ?”
Just like what she did, the two previous times before.
Shen Yi rarely dared to recall the scene of that day when Lu Wanwan jumped down the building. Every time he remembered it, his heart felt like it was being cut by a knife, the pain was endless.
That bottomless feeling of powerlessness, kneeling and crying while begging her not to jump, had all been useless.
He could only watch, with wide-open eyes, as Lu Wanwan died in front of him, witnessing with his own eyes her body being covered with a white cloth, as she was declared dead.
For Shen Yi, this pain was far too agonizing.
Those memories were so far back in time, that Shen Yi couldn’t remember exactly why he absolutely had to lock Lu Wanwan at home during those years.
It was a terrible jealousy, an endless and limitless greed.
Lu Wanwan was like a bright and dazzling sunshine and, among the people she befriended, there was no one who did not like her.
Her life was overly occupied by other people, Shen Yi was aware that Lu Wanwan had him in her heart, perhaps it was love, perhaps it was an ordinary fondness. But the rest of her feelings and time, too much of it, was divided and given to other people.
Over time, Shen Yi looked at everyone as if they were trying to steal her away.
Lu Wanwan was frightened by the somewhat empty look in his eyes, afraid that she would say the wrong thing and trigger his madness. She forced herself to make a sweet smile: “What are you talking about? Yi Yi, you really misunderstood me, this is a fruit knife, I was just cutting a fruit for myself while soaking in the bath.”
With great audacity, she kicked Shen Yi with her foot. In this kind of situation she still dared to kick him back. She said, “You don’t even want to let me eat fruits? You’re actually making such a fuss for that little thing? Yi Yi, you really are too cold-hearted wu wu wu.”
