There could only be a single possibility then—Shi Guang had not talked to him about the breakup back then?
But, hadn’t she clearly said that she was going to ask him what she said while drunk back then?
Or, was she too embarrassed to ask? Perhaps, afraid? But, what if Shi Guang was trying to protect her—after all, if not for her, they might not have broken up back then.
She smiled, “Seems like Shi Guang has not told you anything about herself.”
Thinking about how Shi Guang was behaving out of sorts recently, Lu Yanchen looked at Mo Jin with a suddenly stern expression. “What’s wrong with her?”
From his expression, Mo Jin affirmed her suspicions.
“You two, really…” She smiled in a resigned manner, “There’s nothing wrong with her. She just loves you too much and feels too guilty, thus she did not dare tell you or explain some things to you. Such as… the breakup back then.”
A slight surprise spread out through Lu Yanchen’s eyes while he pursed his lips tightly and coldly.
Looking at the silent Lu Yanchen, Mo Jin smiled, “Are you curious why I’m suddenly bringing the breakup out of nowhere?”
Lu Yanchen looked at her icily while his hands that were gripping onto the steering wheel were almost going white from how tight he was holding onto it.
“You’re trying to tell me about how she would never ever remember anything she does after she gets drunk when she wakes up thereafter, right?” He uttered that out after some time.
In the past, he did not know—and was curious as well—why she would always look at him begrudgingly even though she was the one that had let them down.
It was only till that time when she had gotten drunk that he conjectured what might have happened.
Mo Jin furrowed her brows. “You knew?”
Lu Yanchen scoffed coldly, “… So what if I knew? And what if I don’t? Does that change why she wanted to be with me?”
Mo Jin lowered her head and looked at the document folder in her hands.
“Do you know how Shi Guang was like when she was young? She initially had a blissful family with a stable family background… a pair of loving parents, and a sister that doted on her. She was the precious little daughter of the family, the princess of everyone’s eyes. She had an endearing relationship with her sister. Heck, when I was young, I was totally jealous of her, thinking about how nice it would be if Sister Feifei was my birth sister instead. She had imagined tons of possible futures with her sister when she was young, but never one of the reality she’s in today, where her parents are gone and her sister has turned into a vegetable. At that point, her entire world crumbled in her face. Someone who was forced to grow up overnight, how could she not be filled with hatred and resentment? That’s why she thought of taking revenge on Yang Sitong by stealing her fiancé away.”
At that, Mo Jin’s eyes misted up.
That past that was so close to her heart was what caused Shi Guang her deepest pains. They were things that she did not wish to recall.
“There is no one in this world who has 100% pure thoughts in their minds. Everyone would have their own evils and selfishness to face. Shi Guang is no Mother Theresa. But, she is definitely not an unscrupulous girl with tons of tricks up her sleeves. Other than that evil notion that flashed through her mind when she first courted you, she was always true to you thereafter.”
At that, Mo Jin smiled out, “In fact, I should actually thank you. After she got together with you, she slowly mowed away the hatred and resentment in her heart, and was no longer that negative, unlike the Yang Sitong of now who would go insane just for the sake of revenge.”
In Lu Yanchen’s mind, this was like a beautiful yet cruel fantasy tale.
“Back then, you wanted to look for Shi Guang, but you found me instead. Everything I said back then were all lies! After you broke up with Shi Guang, she was exceptionally sad, and asked me whether you knew that she had a motive when she first courted you. Taking advantage of her memory loss when drunk… I lied and told her no!”
