Chapter 124: Say You Love Me. Then I’ll Believe You
Zhen Shanmei lunged at Ning Meng, clawing her fingernails at her face!
Seeing this, Ning Meng couldn’t help but frown.
This woman… she was so naive!
Just as Ning Meng was about to evade the attack, Zhen Shanmei’s hand stopped mid-air. After a long while, she put down her shaking hand and glared at Ning Meng with her teary, red eyes. Then, she begged with a quavering voice, “Please, Ning Meng! You’ve already married my idol, Huo Beichen! And not only that, but you also have Lin Qingbei. Just tell me. Tell me who else do you want to woo? I’ll be your wing-woman, but can you please not touch my Li Haojie?”
Hearing this, Ning Meng could feel a string was pulled in her heart.
Zhen Shanmei continued in a choked voice, “I won’t ever compete with you in getting the latest designer bags in fashion ever again… No! I won’t compete with you for anything anymore! If you want to win so much, I’ll let you have them all! But please! Please… only this once, I beg you… not Li Haojie… not my Li Haojie…!”
Tears were running down her cheeks as she spoke. It seemed as though she could collapse at any moment.
Taking a deep breath, Ning Meng reminded the teary Ms. Zhen. “Zhen Shanmei, can you please pull yourself together? Sure, I was quite… unrestrained back in the days. I admit that. But my standards in men are quite high, remember? How could I ever be interested in Li Haojie?”
Zhen Shanmei, upon hearing Ning Meng’s words, paused for a moment before replying, “… yeah, I suppose you’re right.”
Li Haojie, who was kind of being insulted earlier, was stunned after seeing Zhen Shanmei’s reaction to Ning Meng’s words. After a short pause, he yelled, “What do you mean by that?!”
Zhen Shanmei quickly stepped forward to comfort him. “Ning Meng is only interested in good looks when picking men. Every single one of her ex-boyfriends was more handsome than you.”
Still, Li Haojie was not about to give up, and so, he came up with another excuse. “Perhaps she was at odds with you, that’s why she was seducing me. This is all a ploy to hurt you.”
Zhen Shanmei stared at him in surprise. “But… but then, she would be paying too much of a price just for this small squabble of ours!”
Li Haojie was pissed!
“Zhen Shanmei, don’t you believe me?!”
“Sure… sure… I believe you…”
Before she was able to finish her sentence, Zhen Shanmei saw Su Tiantian, who was cowering behind Li Haojie. Seeing this, Zhen Shanmei raised her voice again. “Why is she here?!”
Li Haojie paused for a moment before coming up with an excuse for Su Tiantian. “She was just passing by.”
Zhen Shanmei looked at them doubtfully. She, very much like Ning Meng, was not a person who liked to deal with underhanded ploys. Even if she had ever done something dishonestly, she would admit it.
After taking a long look at Ning Meng, Zhen Shanmei turned toward Li Haojie. “Haojie… since Su Tiantian is here, can you answer a question for me?”
Zhen Shanmei looked him in the eye and asked, “Do you like Su Tiantian?”
‘Do I like Su Tiantian?’
Hearing this, a rush of anger stirred up in Li Haojie’s head. In an instant, he lost his temper. “Just what the heck are you talking about? What does this have anything to do with Tiantian?!”
Stubbornly, Zhen Shanmei continued to probe for her answer. “Haojie, just tell me. Tell me that you don’t even have a lick of affection for her. You only love me. Say that you love me. Then I’ll believe you.”
After hearing this, Li Haojie diverted his eyes away from her—it would seem that her words had somehow troubled his conscience.
‘Come on, now. Just lie to her like how I usually do… how hard could it be? Why am I having a hard time facing her right now…’
Suddenly, Su Tiantian opened her mouth, “Ms. Zhen, actually, Mr. Li and I are…”
Zhen Shanmei yelled out loudly, interrupting Su Tiantian. “Shut up! I’m not asking you. I’m asking him!”
Li Haojie lost his temper again. “When I told you that your friend is seducing me, you didn’t believe me! You don’t trust me, not even a little! How can you say that you love me?!”
Zhen Shanmei was stunned after hearing this. Seeing her like this, Ning Meng let out a long sigh. This woman… she loved Li Haojie too much. She had spent 5 years with him, completely dazed by that man’s trickeries. How could one expect her to see the truth?
Thus, Ning Meng slowly raised her phone and said, “Oops. I forgot to tell y’all just now. I was recording a video earlier.”
Looking at Ning Meng’s phone, Li Haojie’s face turned pale!
