Kiss Me Goodnight, Mrs. CEO! - Chapter 55
Chapter 55: The Roof Terrace
She halted and frowned as she saw the figure disappearing around the corner.
She stood there for a few seconds. Then, she walked toward the same direction and found a corridor.
She heard light footsteps above her head. Zuo Weiyi raised her head and from the gaps of the staircase, she saw Shi Yuting walking up to the second floor.
Curiosity took over her and because she was also searching for him, Zuo Weiyi tailed him without hesitation.
When she came to the second floor, she followed the sound of the footsteps to a roof terrace.
Shi Yuting stood by the railing, looking at the stars which filled the dark night. He looked like he was in deep thought.
Zuo Weiyi looked at the tall figure and halted. Why did she sense loneliness in him?
Or was she mistaken?
Shi Yuting was very alert. Very quickly, he sensed someone behind him. He turned and his sharp, cold eyes shot through Zuo Weiyi who was approaching.
That swift and fierce gaze of his stunned her. Zuo Weiyi had never seen such a serious and terrifying look before.
Under the white moonlight, Shi Yuting’s eyes relaxed and turned gentle when he saw the familiar face.
The same scene with the same person had happened once previously.
That year, his family met with calamity and she chose to leave without turning back.
Zuo Weiyi was stupefied when Shi Yuting looked at her without moving. She thought that her face was dirty and so, she tried to clean her face with her hand.
“Why?” She looked at the man opposite her.
Upon hearing her voice, Shi Yuting regained his senses.
He smiled. “You are beautiful!”
He walked over and took her into his embrace. He brought her to the railing of the roof terrace to admire the stars in the sky.
“You are just like tonight’s sky, beautiful and dazzling.”
Zuo Weiyi was not very used to being protected in his embrace while listening to his admiration.
She was not sure if it was an illusion that she always felt but when Shi Yuting looked at her, it was as if he was looking at someone else.
However, he recovered without leaving a single trace each time and she couldn’t find any loopholes.
“Why did you come here? I’ve been looking for you.” Zuo Weiyi tilted her head up and found that the sky here was extraordinarily gorgeous.
“You’re done?” he asked while looking at her pretty face. He let go of her so she could face him.
Zuo Weiyi nodded. “Yes, I…”
She looked awkwardly at the man.
“I told him that you will not withdraw your investment from Jiang Group only if he divorces Qiu Yun…”
All of these were her own ideas. She didn’t know if he was willing to help her.
Fifty million dollars was not a small amount. Would this man waste so much money for her sake?
Gazing at her smiling face, Shi Yuting smiled slightly. “You did well.”
Zuo Weiyi was taken aback.
She did well?
It was his money that she was spending.
“If they really get divorced, you…will not withdraw your investment?”
“What do you wish I do?” he asked.
Zuo Weiyi hesitated.
Of course, she hoped that Jiang family would have nothing at all when she thought of the humiliation her mother had suffered. If they divorced, Qiu Yun and Jiang Tingmei would be paying the price whereas Jiang Huaiyuan, who had done her mother wrong, would never be able to make up to her mother in this life.
Her thought brought her back to the day when her mother laid in a pool of blood. She was alone and helpless but Jiang Huaiyuan ignored them. At that thought, she wished she could kill him and Qiu Yun!
