Chapter 1631: A guarantee!
Hearing this, the man’s expression changed.
What kind of logic did this woman have?!
“That’s different!” he refuted.
“How is that different?”
The woman stared at him pointedly and determinedly reasoned, “In what ways is that different? Is it because you are a man and I am a woman—that you are strong, and I am weak? As the weaker one, I lose the right to have my career and should just take care of our family? Am I expected to be like those rich housewives, waiting at home and expecting your return?! Living day by day dully—is that what I should be doing?”
He was suddenly short for words.
“Are you perhaps trying to imply that because I am a woman, you are confident that I will never be as capable as you are and that the money I earn won’t be enough to take care of you?” she pursued.
His eyes tensed a little. “It’s not like that!”
Yun Shishi kept quiet for a moment before looking at him pointedly. She sucked in a breath of cold air and asked, “Then, what do you mean?”
“I just…” Mu Yazhe muttered to himself for a moment before spitting out his next words. “I just want you to spend more time with me!”
Hearing this, the woman laughed a little before speaking in a low voice. “All this time, though, I’ve never been anyone’s possession. Isn’t that right?”
“I can’t be alive just for the purpose of spending time with you, can I?” She continued to probe.
He was unable to refute that.
She let out a sigh before saying coolly, “I know that you’ve never liked my career! Even though you said you won’t interfere in it, I know that you don’t like it. Your every glance, every expression, and every gesture—all these tell me that you hate that I am an actress. You hate that I am neglecting you because of my job.”
She paused for a moment before nodding, her eyes filled with guilt. “Yes, I know that I’ve neglected you and the twins many times! Especially in this past month, I really had no time for any of you. That’s my fault, and I admit it. I feel guilty about it, too, and I am sorry! After seeing this birthday surprise you guys prepared so carefully for me, I felt even more regretful… I am sorry!”
The man’s gaze softened. “You don’t have to apologize; it’s not your fault.”
“Still, I don’t want to lose my job; I don’t want to be like some of those upper-class women who are canaries in their special cages!”
She covered his hand with hers as she beseeched, “So please give me some time, alright? I have my plans and decisions laid out for the future! Please don’t interfere like how I will never interfere with your career; is that okay?”
“What plans do you have?”
The woman smiled. “I want to be a director in the future and hope to start my own filming company where I can invest in scripts, shows, and movies, but I have to be an actress first and foremost. Once I have sufficient capital, I will work hard to start transitioning to working behind the scenes.”
“If you want, I can fulfill your wish right away!” He held her hand.
Her expression stiffened, followed by her smile simmering. “But the person I am now isn’t very confident that I can operate such a big company. At least, give me some time to train myself!”
The man kept quiet.
She softly implored, “I promise you; I’ll make adjustments in my future schedules to maintain a balance between my work and my personal life, and I’ll also pay more attention to our family! I’m truly sorry for not taking your feelings into consideration during this period! I promise to do my best in avoiding a repeat of such a situation from here on!”
