4.6The night before their wedding, her fiancee ran off with his mistress.

Before her rebirth, she was in love with a different guy, so all she wanted to do was escape from Si Ye Han and hated him to his core after being locked up by him. After her rebirth, she looked differently at him, thinking that maybe he changed for the better? In the past, her mind was muddled. She let go of a stunning husband, was hurt by a scumbag and backstabber and most of all, was brainwashed by her most trusted friend. In the end, she was utterly alone. In her current lifetime, there are evil people scheming and eagerly waiting for her downfall. Sorry, but this girl won’t fall for the same tricks twice!

Intimacy forbidden?” he raised his eyebrow. Who knew that after she got drunk one day, leaning on the headboard, he rested his deep-set eyes on her. "You broke the contract, Mrs, Li."

Over the years, she had shut herself from the elite society and stayed low profile until the day she took over her family's company. She led her subordinates with an iron fist, determined to pave her path until the day Bai Ruoxi and her Bai Family could finally stand on top of the food chain.

An even baffling rumor was that his heart had stopped and confirmed to be dead, yet the next day he was walking down the clan's hall healthy and all, his sickly pallor gone. Jun Yi Han also never took no for an answer. When he showed up in front of the woman he'd had his eyes on for years, he was determined to make her his. - - - The man adorned with godly features had a tender gaze in his eyes as he stared at the woman before him.

The sides of his lips perked up, forming a sensual smirk. "I merely wish for your happiness." "Gu Yin was my happiness." "Was." He emphasized. She stared into his eyes, trying to find the lies hidden between them. But she found none. She sighed, "What exactly do you want?" "You, I want you." His cold eyes shone brightly. "And in return, I will offer you a taste of revenge."
