Chapter 605: I Didn’t Let You Down (1)

Translator: Henyee Translations    Editor: Henyee Translations

Qiao Qiao didn’t mishear. She heard every word that Shao Jingmo had said.

She stubbornly raised her hand to wipe the tears from her eyes and asked him, “Is it because of Miss Wen?” Shao Jingmo did not answer. “Say something. Is it because of Miss Wen?”

Qiao Qiao was very stubborn. The more he pretended to be unfathomable, the more she wanted a complete answer from him. But tears were always disappointing. As soon as they were wiped clean, they filled her eyes again. She raised her hand to wipe it several times. Her eyelids were red.

Shao Jingmo only watched quietly as she wiped her tears. There were no ripples in his eyes, let alone the gentleness that he used to dote on her and love her. It was like a dream that no longer existed.

Qiao Qiao choked and asked a question that made her feel especially embarrassed. “If it’s not Miss Wen, then it must be because I’ve made you tired of me and made you lose your novelty, right?”

Shao Jingmo ignored her emotions and replied, ‘Yes.”

Qiao Qiao continued to ask indignantly, “What about Miss Wen? Do you really like her?”

Shao Jingmo said, “l like her.”

After the word ‘like’ was said too easily, it became really cheap. What Qiao Qiao still didn’t understand was, “Because she makes you feel novel, or because her background brings you a lot of convenience?”

Shao Jingmo said, “Both.”

Qiao Qiao heard her own hoarse voice almost indistinguishable. “Then what am l? A joke after you had sex?”

Shao Jingmo’s expression was extremely cold, especially his cold eyes. They were like ice that could not melt. He only stood in front of her and did not say a word. In an instant, he became the distant moon in the sky when she looked up. In just a moment, they were like strangers. He looked at her coldly for a moment before answering her. “It’s consensual. Why take it too seriously?”

Qiao Qiao’s chest tightened. “l thought you’d at least say something pompous to brush me off.’

“That won’t be necessary,” he said mildly.

Qiao Qiao shook her head helplessly. “We’ve been together for a few months, after all. Why did it become unnecessary in the end… Are you so eager to cut ties with me?”

Shao Jingmo reminded her, “The reason why you’re willing to marry me is to get protection from me. After settling the matter with the Bai family, we’ll get a divorce. This is what you said before. Perhaps you should still remember.”

He paused for a moment. While she looked stunned, he made another vicious cut. “Also, during the marriage, both parties don’t interfere with each other’s privacy and personal life, including how to divide the assets after marriage and the compensation for you. It’s already written in black and white in the prenuptial agreement. If I remember correctly, you stared at the agreement three times that day. At this point, I didn’t let you down.”

1 didn’t let you down.

If she hadn’t heard it with her own ears, Qiao Qiao wouldn’t have believed that Shao Jingmo had said this.

Her almost broken emotions kept wandering around the critical point, ready to erupt at any moment. She bit her lip hard, and her lips quickly broke because of her strength. Blood filled her lips and teeth, and the fishy sweetness quickly filled her nose.

She suddenly felt that her brain was lacking oxygen, and the things in front of her swayed. She was a little dizzy. She didn’t know if it was because she was angry, but her feet were even more unsteady. She tried to calm her emotions and adjust her condition so that she wouldn’t be in such a sorry state.

However, as she retreated, her body swayed uncontrollably. At this moment, a strong arm reached over and grabbed her arm. She couldn’t wait to look up at him. Her eyelashes trembled, and she looked extremely pitiful. “Little Uncle…”

She tried to summon his affection, just like before. However, all she got in return was Shao Jingmo’s cold gaze. “If you’re not feeling well, go back and rest early.”

Qiao Qiao was stunned. The only hope on her face disappeared in a moment. She shook off his hand forcefully, causing her to lose her support. She took half a step back and accidentally fell to the ground.

After falling, she looked around in confusion for a long time. For a moment, she did not know where the pain in her body came from. When she came back to her senses, it was all over her limbs.

Shao Jingmo bent down to help her.

Qiao Qiao stubbornly waved his hand away. “Don’t touch me.”

Shao Jingmo’s outstretched hand froze. Then, he actually retracted his hand.

He stood in front of her and reminded her in an extremely heartless voice,

“You should know your place..”
