Chapter 1290: Without a Malicious Foil
Ning Shu hadn’t targeted Ye Xi the way the original host had and wasn’t that ‘malicious,’ so Jing Shaoze’s heart wasn’t completely leaning towards Ye Xi.
But he had still fallen in love with Ye Xi. Without Ning Shu being malicious as a foil, Jing Shaoze couldn’t help but be conflicted over this issue.
“Mom, you don’t need to worry about her,” said Jing Shaoze coldly. “I’d like to see how thick her skin is. Would she be shameless enough to continue staying here?”
When Ye Xi heard what Jing Shaoze said, she bit her lips as she silently weeped. Her eyes were filled with hurt as she looked towards Jing Shaoze.
Jing Shaoze’s father had never been planning to let Ye Xi be their surrogate. Use his son’s woman as a surrogate? That would be a complete mess.
However, Ye Xi resolutely stayed in this house. Jing Shaoze’s father took Jing Shaoze into consideration and didn’t kick Ye Xi out.
But Jing Shaoze’s mother didn’t want to see Ye Xi for even a second longer and insisted on driving Ye Xi out no matter what.
Jing Shaoze’s father berated, “It’s already so late. Even if she has to leave, she should leave tomorrow morning. Just let her stay the night.”
Jing Shaoze’s mother looked even more suspicious and felt certain that this woman had seduced her husband.
It was late by the time the family meeting ended. Ning Shu and Jing Shaoze headed back to their bedroom to rest.
The moment they got back to the bedroom, Jing Shaoze took Ning Shu’s hand and said emotionally, “Jingjing, you stayed at my side even though so many things have happened. Thank you.”
Ning Shu smiled gently. In her heart, there was a big Ha. Ha. Ha…
Shit. She really wanted to just slap him.
He was saying affectionate words at this point, but in the middle of the night, this son of a bitch disappeared again.
Ning Shu: →_→
She took out the laptop and opened it. Unsurprisingly, Jing Shaoze back was in Ye Xi’s room.
They were on the bed and Jing Shaoze was gripping Ye Xi’s wrists forcefully as he said, “You’re this eager to be a surrogate mother for my dad? Do you know that you’re my woman!?”
Ye Xi just wept silently, so Jing Shaoze became impatient. “Say something?”
“From the moment I stepped into this house, I no longer had any roads of retreat left. I have to surrogate for your family so that I can save my father’s company. For money, for my father’s company, I can do anything!”
“You…” Jing Shaoze was irritated. “Why are you so stubborn? So as long as you have money to solve the crisis your father’s company is facing, you won’t try to be a surrogate?”
Ye Xi was silent for a while, then finally said, “Yes.”
“If you need money, I can give it to you. But do you dare to take it?” Jing Shaoze’s expression was calculating.
Ye Xi looked at him warily and asked, “What do you want?”
“Be my mistress. Leave this place by tomorrow. I’ll buy you a house, and the money I give you will count as payment for being my mistress.”
“Jing Shaoze, stop insulting me!” cried Ye Xi as she struggled hard to get free.
Jing Shaoze pushed Ye Xi’s wrists down to stop her from moving. “Didn’t you say that you could do anything for money? Didn’t you say that you were willing to pay any price to save your father’s company? “
“Think about it carefully. Your father is still waiting on money to save him. If he doesn’t get it, maybe tomorrow’s newspaper would be covering an entrepreneur jumping off a building.” Jing Shaoze threatened Ye Xi.
Ye Xi’s face was pale. “Stop! Don’t say anymore.”
“Besides, it’s not like we haven’t done it before.” Jing Shaoze’s lips hooked, which made Ye Xi blush and feel hot all over.
Ye Xi’s expression was filled with struggle for a while, but then she finally bit her lips and said, “I can be your mistress, but you have to give me the money first. I don’t trust you.”
