The trio present were left stunned, with Ji Jianing gaping in utter disbelief.
When the Ji family and the Li family had announced the marriage, Zhou Huijie had bragged to many other rich wives that she would be the mother-in-law of the Li family's head, and a big shot in River Town.
But with that almighty slap of having the wedding canceled on the day of engagement… where would she show her face from now on?
"Shaoling, that's probably not ideal… How would you explain canceling the wedding to Old Madam?" Zhou Huijie asked sheepishly, while discreetly nudging Ji Xiangdong in the ribs.
"That's right," Ji Xiangdong parroted. "Shaoling, Old Madam would never agree to it."
"I'll talk to Grandmother." Li Shaoling replied, pausing for heartbeats before looking down coolly at Ji Jianing. "We shall not meet again."
With those words, he turned and left without stopping, a haste in his pace.
There were two large people: one large and one small waiting for him back home.
Ji Jianing rushed in front of him and blocked his path, still holding a trace of hope. "Are… are you really not marrying me?"
"Please, no! Shaoling!"
Ji Jianing lunged into his arms again, her tears flowing freely as she begged. "No, Shaoling, don't cancel the wedding! You can't do this to me, you promised Granny and me that you would marry me!"
Li Shaoling sharp brows lifted in irritation and loathing.
"No! I'll only let go if you marry me!"
Ji Jianing had both her arms tightly wrapped around Li Shaoling's waist, her upper body latched tightly to his body brazenly.
Before, Li Shaoling neither liked nor hated her. In the end, his planned engagement was only in accordance to his grandmother's wishes, and as such he never tried to understand her, and was reluctant to have anything to do with her.
Today, he truly felt that the woman was an annoyance!
He hence gripping her upper arms with both of his bony hands forcefully to the point that they turned white. When Ji Jianing flinched from the pain, he shoved her aside.
Ji Jianing's sprained her heel then and fell raggedly on the floor, while a red line was cut out over her arm by a pebble.
"Jianing, are you alright?!" Zhou Huijie and Ji Xiangdong rushed toward her, saddened by the sight.
Nonetheless, hatred was welling in Ji Jianing's eyes. With her fingers all digging into the ground, she screamed at that tall, departing shadow.
"You are canceling the wedding because of Ji Weixi, aren't you!"
And as she expected, Li Shaoling paused.
However, he did not turn as he waited for her next words.
Pushing away Zhou Huijie as she tried to help her up, Ji Jianing simply glared at him, her deadly gaze seemingly boring a hole into his head. "Shaoling, I'm telling Granny if you leave!"
He was the most obedient grandchild after all. She only had to complain to the Old Madam, and he would have no choice but to marry her!
As for Ji Weixi, she would have her learn what terrible consequences waited for anyone who touched her man!
Li Shaoling chuckled. As he glanced at her sideways beneath the bright sun, there was only indifference in his face. "Go ahead."
As if struck by lightning, Ji Jianing was left watching as Li Shaoling left, her tears still flowing freely.
Having never expected such a turn of events, Zhou Huijie felt heartbroken to see her daughter's wretched state, and tried to help her up.
"Don't touch me!" Ji Jianing screamed, her face ferocious and devoid of all pretenses before. "Ji Weixi… Ji Weixi! You b*tch! I will kill you!"
Why did her man have to be taken away on the day of her engagement ceremony?!
