1050 Let us break up.
"What right do you have to ask me what's wrong?! What right do you have to ask me where I am?! Aren't you already with Qiao Jingyun?"
Her words were like bombs as they struck him and her into silence.
Perhaps, due to the explosiveness of her statement, it caused the panicking man to fall silent.
Meanwhile, this protracted silence caused her to feel more agony.
"Ji Ziming, I know everything."
Sucking in a deep breath, she suppressed the sourness in her eyes and continued icily.
I can't reveal any weakness and fragility right now! Even if I want to leave… I should still leave with dignity.
"…Pei Ge, listen to me."
After a long silence, the man finally found his voice. The usual coldness in his voice was absent as it was filled with helplessness and bitterness.
However, the woman had long lost her cool and rationality, so she could no longer feel these emotions from his voice.
"It's too late…"
It's too late. No matter what explanation he gives now, I'll never believe him anymore.
Something is already wedged between us, and this incident will forever remain a prick in my heart.
Not only because of that woman but also because of my mother…
The man moved to say something else but was cut off again. Moreover, all the explanations he wanted to make disappeared entirely because of her next words.
"I know that Qiao Jingyun is pregnant with your child. I know all the lies you've told me."
Her statement was like an invisible, gigantic palm as it tightly squeezed his heart, causing his breathing to become labored.
"I never expected us to become like this. We were clearly about to get married, weren't we?"
As she spoke, her eyes could no longer continue holding on to her tears and they dripped down her face.
Just like the sounds of raindrops, they were light and sorrowful, disappearing instantly without notice.
"I'm sorry… I…" This was the first time Ji Ziming's voice choked up.
The man did not think that he could hide it from her forever, but he still did not expect for this day to arrive this quickly.
"I don't want to hear any of your explanations because what's done has been done. She is indeed pregnant with your child, isn't she?"
The woman pursed her lips tightly as her tears kept falling silently.
"…Yes." He forced this word out.
This reply caused her heart to feel as if it were being ripped into pieces; it hurt so much that she could not breathe.
"Hoo…" After calming her emotions, she exhaled heavily. "Then, I wish you happiness."
"!" He instantly panicked when he heard this.
"It's not what you think!"
"Hur hur… It's not what I think… Tell me then! Did you or did you not sleep with her?! Was it not you who made her pregnant?!" she screamed.
Although he had many explanations inside when he heard this, he was unable to speak them out at the time.
"Let's break up. I don't want to continue being entangled with you." Already at her limit, she no longer wanted to keep this farce with him. Her voice was filled with desolation and fatigue.
"I won't allow it! Pei Ge, you are my wife! Don't ever think of leaving me!" When he heard her say that, the man regained his wits and bellowed this.
Alas, what he got in response was her mocking laughter.
"Hur… I'm your wife…" Her lips curled into a cold smile as her voice got laced with hate. "Tell me, then! Why is our marriage certificate fake?!"
"…Pei Ge, that's unimportant. You are my wife if I say so." After a long pause, he calmly said this.
This was clearly not the least bit effective to the woman, though.
"Who are you? Does everything you say goes?" She smiled, as though having come to a conclusion, and coldly stated. "Let me tell you: I don't want to be your wife anymore! I also don't want to continue being entangled with you. From the start, our love has never likely been mutual."
Hearing this, the man only felt as though his heart were being drilled with holes by her.
"What are you saying…" After a long time, he found his voice again.
"I said: 'Let's never meet each other again.'"
He felt his breath catch at this.
He subconsciously loosened his tie as his face turned white.
"Don't you want to cure your mother anymore? Be obedient and don't quarrel with me anymore…"
He only wanted to make her return, but unexpectedly, the moment he said this, her heart became even more bruised.
"My mother… are you threatening me?" she mumbled softly without emotion.
Only then did he realize that his words had been phrased wrongly.
"I truly feel lucky that I didn't get married with you, as right now, I… don't love you anymore."
She paused when she mentioned this part about not loving him anymore because her heart was filled with bitterness.
Alas, the man failed to notice that what she had just said was not her true feelings so he was instead deeply hurt by it.
"Are you with Mingxuan then?"
This conjecture slipped out of his mouth involuntarily.
"What has that got to do with you? Anyway, you are nothing more than a stranger to me now," replied the woman icily after calming down.
"Pei Ge, don't anger me, or else—"
Before he could finish his threat, he was cut off again.
"'Or else' what? Will you hurt the people I love again? Ji Ziming, you truly are capable!"
