Fierce Ex-wife: President, Please Be Careful - Chapter 697
Chapter 697 Everyone knows (1)
An Qi’s expression suddenly became complicated, and her hand that was clutching the hem of her clothes unconsciously tightened.
“Very silly, right?” Nie Xingzhi smiled. “He’s already dated so many girls, but after meeting you, he turns into a little kid. It’s so silly that I can’t bear to look, but it’s still cute.”
An Qi said nothing. Nie Xingzhi raised his head to look at the sky and sighed. “People always change when they encounter something they care about, and they would not even realize it themselves. Those who are caught in the middle of it would be confused, but those who are watching from the sidelines see it all. I don’t know what’s going on between you and Yunfan, but I can see that he cares about you very much, and you are still uncertain about the whole thing. If that’s the case, why can’t you two try to get together? An Qi, many things in this world could pass by as wasted opportunities. They don’t come with second chances. I don’t want to see you and Yunfan walk the same path as me and Yue Yue’s mother. When you think about these things in the future, you’ll regret it for the rest of your life.”
An Qi’s entire body trembled. She bit harder down on her lips, but she still didn’t say a word.
Nie Xingzhi knew that he couldn’t push things too hard. “Sigh, after you moved out of your house, Yunfan hasn’t been the same. For a time, he ran about looking for you on foot, but now he locks himself at home all day and refuses to come out, no matter who calls him.”
An Qi was shocked. She had always thought… that a young master like Nie Yunfan would quickly shake it off after being rejected by her and move on to other women, however, she didn’t expect that he would actually be hurt because of her rejection, to the extent that he would never recover.
Her heart was in a mess because of Nie Xingzhi’s words. She couldn’t tell whether she was bitter or touched about it.
Nie Xingzhi saw the wavering in An Qi’s eyes, so he continued to play the emotional card. “His parents and I are very worried, but there’s nothing we can do about it. It’s a heart disease that modern medicine can’t cure. If you’re free, you can go over and take a look at him, even if it’s just from a distance. This is the address of his house in the northern suburbs and the key. Take it.”
An Qi watched helplessly as Nie Xingzhi took out a bunch of keys from his pocket. Under the keys was a note with Nie Yunfan’s address written on it.
Immediately, as if she had been scalded by a hot potato, she hurriedly took a few steps back and waved her hand as she muttered, “No, I can’t…”
Seeing this, Nie Xingzhi furrowed his brows and whispered sternly, “An Qi, what exactly are you afraid of?”
An Qi’s face turned pale, and she stammered to retort, “Afraid? No, I’m not afraid, I’m not!”
“Since you’re not afraid, why don’t you dare to take this key?”
“I… I just…” An Qi didn’t know what she wanted to say, but her instinct told her that she couldn’t take this key and that if she took it, something unexpected would happen, that was a consequence that she absolutely couldn’t bear!
Nie Xingzhi was infuriated by the awkward couple. Even so, he remained calm, lest he scared the girl.
After hesitating for a moment, Nie Xingzhi sighed and decided to continue playing the emotion card. “Take it. You won’t lose anything if you take this. I’m not forcing you to see him. It’s up to you whether you want to go or not. If you don’t want to go, can I force you to go? Take it!”
An Qi pursed her lips. After hesitating for a long time, she finally took it with trembling fingers.
“I… I may not go. He and I… we’ve already made things very clear. Between us… There is no future.” An Qi held the key and stammered, her eyes evading his gaze. She didn’t dare to look into Nie Xingzhi’s eyes.
After these words, it didn’t seem like she was trying to distance herself from the relationship. Instead, it seemed like she could not believe herself.
Nie Xingzhi did not call her out on it. He nodded and said, “I know. The decision is up to you. No matter what decision you make, no one will blame you. Even if you really don’t want to go over and look at him, that’s his life. You can’t blame anyone else. Sigh…”
When she heard Nie Xingzhi’s words, An Qi’s heart wavered even more.
Nie Xingzhi saw her wavering and knew that his goal had been achieved. Thus, he cleverly changed the topic and said, “It’s getting late, it’s time to wake Yue Yue up for dinner.”
An Qi lowered her head and replied, “Okay.”
Nie xingzhi turned around and walked back, but after a few steps, he stopped and said in a low voice, “An Qi, no matter what decision you make in the end, there’s one thing you should be made clear about. No one looks down on you, and no one cares about your past. I don’t, Yunfan’s parents don’t, and no one else does. Everything is just in your head. If you can’t even pass this hurdle, then no one can help you obtain happiness.”
Nie Xingzhi had not turned to look at An Qi’s face, but every word he said struck An Qi’s heart. “You should have more confidence in yourself and Yunfan.” An Qi’s expression changed slightly, and her hand that was holding the key tightened reflexively. Happiness? Did she still have the right to be happy? Nie Xingzhi had just walked out of the courtyard when he met the former master, who had an evil smile on his face.
Nie Xingzhi was stunned for a moment, then he smiled at the former master and said, “Why are you here?”
“If I didn’t come, would I still be able to see you clown about and lie to a child? It’s such a little girl, you really have no shame.” The former master said as he glanced at Nie Xingzhi with disdain.
The smile on Nie Xingzhi’s face, which had been exposed, stiffened. He helplessly spread his hands and said, “What can I do? He’s still my nephew, after all. Seeing him like that, how can I pretend that I didn’t see anything? Moreover, I never lied to her. At least 70-80% of what I said to her just now is true. He had simply stretched some points.
The former master and Nie Xingzhi had known each other for so many years, so how could he not understand what Nie Xingzhi meant? He pointed at Nie Xingzhi and smiled knowingly.
Just as Zhao Youlin thought, Su Ruixin really wanted to spread the news of her pregnancy to the whole of Shalnork. In just one day, she received congratulations from people she did not know from all over the city.
Su Qing, in particular, immediately called when she received the news. After the call was connected, she laughed maniacally. “Youlin, I heard that you’re pregnant. I told you, my cousin may look ruthless, but he’s actually very starved of action. You’ve already remarried him. How could he not make a little ‘Joy’ out of it? I’m so smart, wahahahaha…”
