Chapter 616: Are You Happy?
After a short while, Vera finally stopped crying before she wiped away her tears as she looked out of the car window.
Xiao Chennan held the steering wheel with his right hand as he propped his left hand on the car window. He did not have any intention of hurting the last remaining bit of Vera&x2019;s self-esteem.
&x201C;Both you and Jiang Yuning are saints. It seems as though you do not make any mistakes and you do not allow anyone else to make any mistakes too. The both of you are lights shining on earth.&x201D;
Xiao Chennan did not get annoyed or angry after listening to Vera&x2019;s words. He continued speaking to her in a very soft and gentle voice as he said, &x201C;I do not want to refute your words. The only reason why Yuning and I are acting like this is simply because we do not want you to continue making that same mistakes. We do not want you to sink further into your mistake. Even if it will hurt you, we have to make sure that we hold you back so that you can still be saved.&x201D;
&x201C;It is not because we do not allow the people around us to make any mistakes. We simply do not want the people around us to sink.&x201D;
&x201C;This is because we know that there is an abyss ahead of you&x2026;&x201D;
&x201C;Vera, are you&x2026;still the same person that you were before this? Are you happy?&x201D;
Vera did not say anything and she had no answer to his questions at all.
How difficult was it for her to admit that she was wrong?
Many people could easily summon the courage to hurt others, but they were always unwilling to summon the courage to face their own mistakes.
Very soon, the both of them already arrived outside Vera&x2019;s house. They continued sitting in the car in the darkness and neither one of them spoke. It was only when Vera wanted to push the car door open and step out of the car that Xiao Chennan suddenly spoke up.
&x201C;Vera, let me know when you have thought everything through. At that time, I will make the news of our breakup public then.&x201D;
&x201C;What if I will never think things through?&x201D; Vera asked him in return.
&x201C;Then we will just maintain things the way it is. We will keep a low profile then.&x201D;
Vera controlled the torrent of tears that was about to flow down her cheeks as she ran back towards her house.
She understood what Xiao Chennan was saying and she knew what he was trying to tell her. However, she felt that it was really very difficult for her to accept this reality herself.
She also knew that Xiao Chennan and Jiang Yuning were still protecting her even though she has already gotten to this point today. However, she really could not bring herself to face them or admit all the mistakes that she has committed.
Xiao Chennan did not leave as he continued waiting outside Vera&x2019;s house.
At this time, Vera did not turn on the lights in her house either.
The both of them continued struggling with their own emotions alone in the dark.
In the middle of the night, Vera threw herself on her bed as she thought about everything that has happened throughout the entire night.
After finally getting through the night and making it to dawn, Vera stepped into the bathroom. When she saw her unkempt face and red and swollen eyes, Vera could not help but laughed to herself. This was because Vera finally realized that she did not recognize the person in the mirror either.
Was this still the confident Vera that came from abroad?
Was she really the Vera who has accompanied Jiang Yuning in so many of her battles?
Was she still that&x2026;Vera that made Xiao Chennan feel so fascinated with her?
No, she was not that Vera anymore. She was simply a loser who was jealous and eager to prove herself.
At this time, Vera slowly turned around before she took a scissors out of her drawer as she faced the makeup mirror and cut off her long and black hair.
At nine o&x2019;clock in the morning, at Shen Yichen&x2019;s office at Guangying Media.
Shen Yichen really did not expect that the first person that he would see today was not his assistant, but Vera who has already cut off her long hair.
&x201C;Is there anything I can do for you?&x201D;
&x201C;My resignation letter.&x201D; Vera said as she handed the envelope in her hand over to Shen Yichen. &x201C;Actually, I have never won the bet between us. It was not me who guided Jiang Yuning all this time. In fact, Jiang Yuning has been the one guiding me all along.&x201D;
Shen Yichen was startled as he looked at the sudden resignation letter handed to him by Vera. &x201C;Then, what are your plans after this?&x201D;
&x201C;I am going back abroad where I belong,&x201D; Vera replied immediately. &x201C;Don&x2019;t worry. I will not give up on myself. There are just some things that I have come to understand and realize. I know that I will only be restraining myself if I continue to stay here. Therefore, I think that it would be better for me to have a change of environment instead. Perhaps, that way, I will be able to find an answer for myself then.&x201D;
At this time, Shen Yichen looked at Vera carefully before he observed the expression in her eyes. Shen Yichen realized that the pure expression that Vera used to have on her face seemed to have already returned at this time.
Therefore, Shen Yichen stretched out his hand towards Vera before he said, &x201C;Congratulations, Vera. I hope that we will have an opportunity to work together again in future.&x201D;
&x201C;When are you leaving?&x201D;
&x201C;My flight leaves at noon today,&x201D; Vera replied in a relaxed manner.
&x201C;You are leaving so urgently?&x201D;
Vera shrugged. After all, she had nothing left for her in Luo City anymore. Therefore, it was also a relief for her to leave earlier.
The both of them had a short exchange of words and it seemed as though they had returned to the very beginning when they first met. Shen Yichen could feel that Vera has already let go of all of her hatred and jealousy at this time.
&x201C;Didn&x2019;t you tell anyone about your plans?&x201D;
After saying goodbye to Shen Yichen, Vera left Guangying Media without turning back at all.
Shen Yichen looked at the resignation letter on his table before he decided to give Jiang Yuning a call. &x201C;Yuning, Vera is going to leave the country later at noon. I am just calling to inform you about this matter.&x201D;
&x201C;Oh.&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied in a very calm manner.
&x201C;Are you still mad at her?&x201D;
&x201C;No, I am not mad at her anymore but I am no longer friends with Vera.&x201D;
So, that meant that Jiang Yuning did not care whether Vera was going to leave or stay.
&x201C;Alright then, it&x2019;s up to you&x2026;&x201D;
Despite this, Jiang Yuning gave Xiao Chennan a phone call after hanging up the phone with Shen Yichen.
&x201C;I heard that Vera will be leaving the country at noon today. Furthermore, she has already handed in her resignation letter to Guangying Media. What are you going to do?&x201D;
At this time, the young paparazzo who was sitting next to Jiang Yuning felt that this person&x2026;was a little too contradictory.
She was just saying that Vera was no longer her friend but look what happened? As soon as she hung up the phone, she turned around and called Xiao Chennan immediately. Did that mean that Jiang Yuning was afraid to lose Vera?
Of course, the young paparazzo did not bother to expose Jiang Yuning because he knew that Jiang Yuning had her own difficulties too. She wanted to save her own face too.
After listening to Jiang Yuning&x2019;s words, Xiao Chennan had a similar reaction to Jiang Yuning&x2019;s. However, who would have known that his heart would be in turbulence?
If Vera left the country, she would really be gone forever. Perhaps, he would never have the chance to see her again in future. Could he simply sit still without doing anything anymore?
Jiang Yuning could only smile because she felt that she was really the same kind of person as the film emperor, Xiao Chennan.
&x201C;Are you really not going to stop her?&x201D;
&x201C;What is the point of stopping her? I will not be doing her any good if I confined her within this small space. It would be better for her to fly away and grow&x2026;&x201D;
Jiang Yuning could not help but feel that Xiao Chennan was very perfunctory but she did not say anything at all. The two of them continued chatting a little but at this time, Jiang Yuning could feel that Xiao Chennan was no longer in his best state of mind.
&x201C;Sister Yuning, brother-in-law is already ready. We are going to set off soon,&x201D; the young paparazzo who was sitting beside her quickly reminded Jiang Yuning. After all, today was the day of their wedding photoshoot.
&x201C;Alright then. Stop rushing me.&x201D;
Today was the day that she would finally be able to see Lu Jingzhi wearing his groom outfit. Would she possibly be late for it?
In Vera&x2019;s apartment, she has already packed up all her bags and luggage as she left the room.
Xiao Chennan&x2019;s car was parked outside but he did not go into Vera&x2019;s house at all.
At ten o&x2019;clock in the morning, Vera came out of her house with her luggage in her hand. She has already arranged for all of her other luggage and belongings to be sent back to the United States.
Xiao Chennan continued sitting in his car which was parked at a corner as he watched Vera get into the car with her luggage.
&x201C;Brother Chennan, are you really not going to go after Sister Vera? She is really leaving this time.&x201D; Qingyan was sitting next to Xiao Chennan in the car and he could not helped but turned around to look at Xiao Chennan who was looking out the car window at this time. It seemed as though Xiao Chennan was very anxious and unwilling to let her go. If Vera left, she would never come back anymore. Therefore, Qingyan wanted Xiao Chennan to really think this through.
Xiao Chennan was completely unmoved.
&x201C;Oh my god. I feel so anxious right now, I feel that I am about to die. The both of you are really ridiculous, especially you, Brother Chennan! The both of you are obviously still in love with one another. Even though Sister Vera made a mistake, can&x2019;t you just forgive her this time? Why did you have to break up with her? If you wanted to break up with her, then why are you constantly coming over to her house and parking your car outside? What are you trying to do if you are not going to let go?&x201D;
&x201C;Sister Vera is really leaving now!&x201D;
At this time, Xiao Chennan finally started his car after listening to Qingyan&x2019;s words.
Qingyan thought that he has finally come to his senses and was about to go after Vera. Unexpectedly, Xiao Chennan drove back home instead.
