Chapter 257: Dont Worry, Im Here
“I…” Ye Shengge wanted to explain, but on second thought, there was nothing to explain.
She really didnt care about him enough.
Perhaps it was because in her heart, Ji Shiting had always been strong and invincible, so she had never expected that man to feel lonely or hurt.
“Sorry.” She grabbed his sleeve and apologized.
“It seemed like your chat with auntie in the afternoon went fine, so I assumed it wasnt anything serious and didnt ask about it.”
Ji Shiting stared at her for a few seconds before pulling her into his embrace.
“Mm.” He took another puff and blew smoke at the lake before saying, “Its not a big deal indeed.”
Ye Shengge was relieved.
“Then… Why are you in such low spirits”
“Who says Im not in a good mood” The man retorted.
He tapped the cigarette ash, but his lips curled upwards with slight mockery.
Ye Shengge sighed.
So be it if he didnt want to admit it.
He wouldnt admit any negative emotions, be it anger or sadness.
She thought for a bit and said, “Shiting, I dont remember what my parents looked like anymore.”
Ji Shiting was momentarily stunned and hugged her tighter.
“They were diplomats, and they died in a war.
The last thing I remember about that accident was the lawyer telling me how much my parents left me.” Ye Shengge smiled.
“I remember everything when my parents died, but its weird.
I just dont remember how they looked, and I dont remember anything about them.
Its been written in the books.
I might have had post-traumatic stress disorder.”
Ji Shiting didnt say anything but held her hand.
“But I wished I remembered, even if they arent as perfect as I thought.
It would be better if they were still alive.” Ye Shengge sighed and turned to look at him.
“No matter what Auntie did to you, she still your mom and cares about you.”
Ji Shiting frowned and said, “Are you trying to comfort me, Ye Shengge”
“Um…” She looked around.” No, I was just saying what was on my mind.
Ji Shiting chuckled and hugged her tightly.
Ye Shengge wrapped her arms around his neck, feeling nervous.
Generally speaking, he hugged her to make it easier for him to kiss her.
However, Ji Shiting obviously didnt intend to kiss her.
He combed her hair with his hands, and his dark eyes showed some emotions.
Then, he reached out and held her in his arms, burying his face in her neck as if he was seeking some solace.
She heard the deep, soft breathing which made her heart skip a beat.
She hugged him tightly and said, “Its alright.
Ill never leave you as long as you dont mind me.”
Ji Shiting gulped and said, “You said it yourself.”
Ye Shengge nodded.
She suddenly realized that Ji Shiting also had moments of sadness and weakness where he needed comfort.
He wasnt as invincible as he looked.
