Chapter 281: I Had To Believe

Translator: Henyee Translations Editor: Henyee Translations


Back at the Mountain Villa, Xia Ning did not drive in but stopped her car at the gate. She knew a car was following her.


Xia Ning opened the car window and looked to the car next to hers. “Qiao Yu, why are you following me?”


Qiao Yu opened the car door and walked down. He looked at Xia Ning and said, “I just wanted to talk to you. Didn’t have a chance to catch up with you today.”


Xia Ning stared back at him and frowned slightly. “Didn’t I say that there is nothing left to talk about between us?”


“I know I was a total jerk before. Everyone said that to me and I myself realized as well. Xia Ning, could you just give me another chance?” Qiao Yu looked at Xia Ning and said seriously.


Xia Ning chuckled. She looked at him with a ghostly smile. “Do you have a fever or something?”


Even though he was mocked by Xia Ning, Qiao Yu did not lose his temper. He continued, “Xia Ning, I’m serious. Before, I didn’t know how to be a good husband but I’m willing to change now. I will do whatever you tell me to.”


“Qiao Yu, a good husband does not mean he has to do whatever his wife says but rather, he knows what to do himself.”


Xia Ning breathed slightly and looked to the front. “I’ve been very busy lately and don’t feel like talking to you about the past. What’s done is done. I don’t mind who was right or who was wrong. I just want to look to my future now.”


“I know it’s hard to get you to remarry me. So let me chase after you, okay?” Qiao Yu looked at her. His cold face paired with these words seemed rather funny.


This man was like this. Even when he was expressing his feelings for a girl, he was still cool and overbearing.


Xia Ning raised her eyebrows. “Why do you like me anyway? My bad temper or me ignoring you? Are you asking me to shout at you again?”


“If you shout at me, I won’t talk back. Back then, I was the one who wronged you…” Qiao Yu said in a low voice.


Xia Ning sneered. “Do you think all you’ve done to me could be erased by not talking back? That would be way too easy.”


Qiao Yu looked at her and explained, “I wasn’t going to get engaged with Jiang Xinyi back then. It was all arranged by my grandfather and I did not know until later. But at that time, I thought you didn’t know, so I didn’t explain. And then you wanted to divorce me.”


“Oh really?” Xia Ning answered carelessly.


Seeing Xia Ning’s cold attitude, Qiao Yu frowned and said, “If you have any grudges against me, let’s talk them through one by one okay? Xia Ning, don’t you think we lacked communication before?”


Lacked communication? Xia Ning thought about the phrase and remembered the life when they first got married. Lacking communication was an understatement. There was none.


“Are you saying I should really give you a reason to give up?” Xia Ning looked at Qiao Yu. “If that’s the case, I don’t mind. After all, I’m so fed up with your badgering.”


Her cold words sounded like nothing to Qiao Yu at this moment. He got used to her thorns all this time. Plus, he did want to know what happened one by one.


After exhaling slightly, Xia Ning sat back in the seat and looked at the sky above her. She said suddenly, “I heard about your engagement with Jiang Xinyi from the international students at Cambridge. I didn’t believe back then and I called you. The one who picked up told me that you were going to get engaged with her and I had to believe it.”
