Chapter 1260: A Transnational Collaboration Case
From the beginning to the end, Ye Xi acted so innocent, so much like she was forced.
Haha, every woman who became a mistress was forced to do so because of reasons outside of their control. It was always because they had difficulties that caused them to have no other choice.
So it turned out that Jing Shaoze’s mother thought of Ni Jing as a disgrace. She was having her son get together with another woman, perhaps to get revenge on Ni Jing.
She probably never considered the fact that if Ni Jing found out about this and couldn’t take it, she might collapse to the ground with a heart attack.
If she was slightly more malicious, perhaps she had been hoping for Ni Jing to hurry and die.
Jing Shaoze had forgotten his promises and responsibility to Ni Jing. When he was in bed with Ye Xi, he even told himself that he was just making use of a commodity, that it had nothing to do with love.
Ning Shu lifted her eyebrows. This family!
If a woman couldn’t have children, she lost even her most basic value. In the eyes of the Jing family, the original host was just an existence that could not give birth who could also breathe her last at any moment.
As Ning Shu turned off the computer, her cell phone rang. She answered the phone as she hit record.
Jing Shaoze’s gentle voice came from the phone.
“Jingjing, the company has a transnational collaboration case so I might not be home for a couple days.”
Ning Shu: →_→
If I actually believed you, then my brain’s definitely been fried.
Ning Shu curled her lips in disdain and asked expressionlessly, “How long will this case take?”
“If it’s fast, probably half a month. If it’s slow, perhaps over a month. I’ll make sure to find time to come back and see you.” Jing Shaoze consoled Ning Shu. “You should be careful at home. Make sure to take medicine whenever you feel uncomfortable, alright?”
“I got it,” said Ning Shu mildly.
“Then I’m going to go work. Jingjing, I love you.” Jing Shaoze then hung up.
Ning Shu looked towards the recorded file on the phone and sneered. Would he actually be able to not come back for an entire half a month?
Since Jing Shaoze wasn’t home, Ning Shu rarely went downstairs. She only went downstairs for meals.
Jing Shaoze’s mother barely talked to Ning Shu, but they were very polite to each other. Ning Shu was aware that Jing Shaoze’s mother hated her.
This time, when she went downstairs to get water, she saw that the entire villa was empty. She asked Aunt Li, one of the servants, “Where’s Mother?”
Aunt Li said, “The madam took Miss Ye out shopping and said that she wouldn’t be back tonight since she had to attend a dinner party.”
These two were sure close. It almost seemed like they were the actual close mother-in-law and daughter-in-law.
She had Aunt Li pour her a glass of water, then went back upstairs.
She sat down on the bed to practice the Unsurpassable Martial Arts. The laptop in front of her was on but Ye Xi’s room was empty.
She practiced for a long time until there came a knock on the door. She stopped practicing and opened her eyes. It was already dark outside.
Aunt Li called Ning Shu downstairs for dinner. She was the only one in the house and so she sat alone at the dinner table. After enjoying the meal at her leisure, she went back upstairs.
