Ex-Husband Wants To Marry Again - Chap 19
“He was a little nervous and a little afraid in his heart.
He was afraid that if he asked Ye Linghan for money, he would be ridiculed.
But he had no other choice…
As he waited for the phone to connect, Ji Ran’s heart was pounding and his palms were sweating.
When the call was finally answered, his heart suddenly stopped. Ji Ran took a deep breath and mustered up the courage to speak: “Ye…Ye Linghan, I want to…”
“Hello, Ye Shao is not available at the moment,” said Gan Rui, holding the phone and looking at Ye Linghan beside him, asking with his eyes if what he said was appropriate.
Ye Linghan nodded at him and pointed towards the direction of the bathroom.
Gan Rui continued, “Ye Shao is taking a shower. Do you have anything to say?”
When Ji Ran heard the words “taking a shower”, his expression froze and his lips trembled with force.
After what seemed like an eternity, he regained his voice and said, his voice struggling, “…It’s nothing!”
Without waiting for a response, he quickly hung up the phone.
Staring at the phone screen, Ji Ran’s eyes were empty and his expression was absent-minded.
It took him a long time before he moved.
Placing his palm over his chest, he felt a sharp pain as if there were hands piercing through his chest and his heart had been squeezed.
Chapter 28 – What bad temper? I’m just used to it.
After Ji Ran hung up, Gan Rui handed the phone back to Ye Linghan.
Staring at the phone screen, Ye Linghan noticed that the call had only lasted for a few seconds. He furrowed his brows and asked, “What did he say just now?”
“Gan Reidao said: ‘I didn’t say much, I just told him you were taking a shower, and he hung up the phone directly.’
Ye Linghan’s brows furrowed even tighter, feeling particularly unhappy.
He deliberately provoked Jiran through Gan Reidao to force Jiran to apologize and beg him to come back.
But why didn’t Jiran call back after such a long time since the call was disconnected?
What a temper? It’s all too common!
Ye Linghan threw his phone aside, his face sinking, and his whole body exuded an irritated breath.
“Ye Young Master, why didn’t you answer Jiran’s call just now?”
Gan Reidao could see that Ye Linghan cared about Jiran, and he didn’t understand why he made such a suggestive move.
Doesn’t he know that those words just now will make Jiran suspicious?
“I don’t want to answer!” Ye Linghan glanced at Gan Reidao and asked, “When will you go into heat?”
Gan Reidao calculated the time and replied, “Five days later.”
“Why is it still five days?” Ye Linghan’s eyes were cold. “Did you inject the suppressant a few days ago?”
“I went into heat three days ago, and you were on a business trip at that time, so I could only inject the suppressant.”
Gan Reidao helplessly said, “Should I let other alphas mark me?”
“Even if you’re in heat, I won’t mark you.” Ye Linghan emphasized, “Don’t forget, you said you’re a surrogate mother.”
“But if you don’t mark me, Ye Uncle will be suspicious.” Gan Reidao pointed to the gland on his wrist, “Temporary marking is red, permanent marking is blue. Without a blue seal, Ye Uncle will know that I’m a surrogate mother when I get pregnant.”
Ye Linghan lightly tapped his leg a few times and pondered, “I will solve the marking problem. Call me when you go into heat, and I will naturally have a way.”
Gan Reidao didn’t say much and left Ye Linghan’s bedroom.
There was no one else in the bedroom, and Ye Linghan removed his disguise on his face and quickly picked up his phone.
There were no messages, no WeChat messages, and Jiran didn’t contact him again.
Ye Linghan cursed and felt that Jiran was becoming more and more boring.
In the past, whenever Jiran showed even a hint of abandoning him, Jiran would bow his head and beg him to change his mind.
But today, despite Gan Rui’s stimulation, Jiran didn’t react at all.
Ye Linghan opened the monitoring system on his phone and accessed the surveillance in the villa. After switching through many places, he found Jiran on the terrace.
Jiran was holding his phone and making a call.
“…Thank you so much! I received the money! I will repay you as soon as possible. I’ll treat you to dinner in a few days.”
“I really should thank you!”
“I don’t have anything valuable to use as collateral. There’s a customized watch worth 50 million yuan. You can hold onto it for now. Give it back to me after I repay you.”
Ye Linghan saw Jiran on the screen, holding his phone in one hand and a small box in the other.
From the appearance of the box, he recognized it as the birthday gift he had given Jiran before.
Jiran, you’re really something!
You can just give away the gift I gave you!
Ye Linghan’s face turned pale, and his fingers holding the phone trembled.
He suddenly stood up from the sofa, grabbed his coat, and walked out of the bedroom.
It seems that he has been too kind to Jiran in the past, and imprisoning him only made Jiran forget his place. He had to teach him a lesson today and let him know who his master is!
In the car, Ye Linghan received a call from his friend, Yun Ziqiu.
“Ye, what are you up to? We haven’t seen you in a few days. We’re having a card game at the club. Come join us!”
“Not going!” Ye Linghan was furious, and he had no mood to go out and have fun.
“Hey, what’s wrong? Are you in a bad mood?”
“Don’t talk nonsense, I’m hanging up!” Ye Linghan was extremely annoyed, he just wanted to go back to the villa and teach Jiran a lesson.
“Hey, wait a minute!” Yun Ziqiu said, “Ye, are you for real? After getting engaged, have you changed your ways? I heard you even dumped your mistress! Poor thing! She’s borrowing money everywhere! I heard she even sold the gifts you gave her! When did you become so stingy? You didn’t even give her a breakup fee.”
