Fang Tongtong’s words were harsh and hurtful.
When everyone in the ward heard what she said, they could not help but exchange a look of uneasiness before their eyes eventually landed on Shen Zhilie.
Shen Zhilie already had a dark look on his face. Now, it looked even more ashen.
He gave others the impression that he was like a warm spring breeze.
Shen Zhilie was a warm, cheerful, and outstanding man who reached his current position at such a young age based on his abilities.Not only was he capable, but he also had an enviable and praiseworthy temper.
Everyone in the room had never seen such an expression on Shen Zhilie’s face before.
“What has it got to do with you?” Shen Zhilie cast Fang Tongtong a frosty look. “I know how my girl treats me.”
There was not the slightest bit of warmth in his gaze. Slightly taken aback by Shen Zhilie’s current behavior, Fang Tongtong dimwittedly replied, “How is it not my business? Ye Qianqian is my best friend. If she can slap you so indiscriminately, what about the next time? Have you ever thought about what it’ll be like the next time?”
Fang Tongtong looked at Shen Zhilie and pushed on. “Ye Qianqian has always been so spoiled and willful. She never cared about the feelings of other people. You heard what she said earlier. She was obviously mistaken about us, yet she doesn’t even bother to listen to a word of explanation from us. Doesn’t that make you mad?”
“Fang Tongtong.” Shen Zhilie cut her off in an ice-cold voice. “You claim that you are Ye Qianqian’s best friend, but based on my understanding, in terms of a men’s social circle, a best friend is equivalent to a brother.”
Fang Tongtong did not know what Shen Zhilie was trying to convey. She looked at him helplessly for a moment.
“Honestly speaking, if my brother spoke ill of me like this in front of my girlfriend, I would cut him out from my life without hesitation.”
Fang Tongtong was shocked and began to explain herself. “What I’ve said are all truths!”
“Truths?” Shen Zhilie’s face further darkened. “Ye Qianqian treated you with wholeheartedly, but what about you? Are you actually telling these ‘truths’ to her boyfriend?”
“I’m just doing this for your own good…” Fang Tongtong was audibly less confident than before.
“Forget it.” Shen Zhilie sneered with an indescribable look of mockery in his smile. “It’s all my fault.”
“Shen Zhilie…” Fang Tongtong was at a loss as to what to do.
“Go. I feel that there’s nothing much to talk about between us.” Shen Zhilie turned his eyes away and looked at his freshly bandaged wound. “I don’t think that Qianqian needs a best friend like you.”
Fang Tongtong subconsciously recalled how Ye Qianqian looked like she was on the verge of a breakdown earlier. At the same time, she remembered what she had said to her the night before.
The hospital’s underground carpark was huge. By the time Ye Qianqian made her way out from the hospital, more than 10 minutes had passed.
It seemed possible that the people who passed by Ye Qianqian may have witnessed the earlier drama or knew her because they took a second glance at her.
The sun was burning. Ye Qianqian’s body trembled without her realizing it. Even her eyes felt as if they had been ironed on. Layers of burning heat rose and gave rise to the heatwaves in the air.
It was a sea of blur before Ye Qianqian’s eyes. She lowered her head and trudged forward aimlessly as if she was defeated.
Never would I have imagined that my best friend would hook up with my boyfriend.
I am unquestionably the cause of everything.
