Shen Shu smiled thinly at the question and replied: “Weren’t you looking for me? Tell me then, what did you come to find me for?”
Ruan Tian scratched her head, “Didn’t we already sign the divorce papers?”
Shen Shu hummed a sound of acknowledgment.
Ruan Tian blinked uncomfortably, but then pressed on: “The agreement says that you have to pay me 5 million in alimony per year.”
As she spoke, she held up five fingers as if to say: ‘5 million, like this!’.
Ruan Tian looked at his indifferent face and tried to keep calm, “So where’s the money?”
Where was her damn money! ! !
Shen Shu looked at her slightly askance, and the curve of his lips turned slightly cold, “You came to find me about the money?”
Ruan Tian looked at him confusedly, “If not that, then what?”
Shen Shu lowered his eyes and examined her face with his cold gaze. Looking carefully, there was nothing in her expression except a desire for money.
At this moment, he suddenly understood.
Ruan Tian really wanted to divorce him this time. This wasn’t just some new method of pursuit.
Shen Shu’s eyes didn’t move for a long time, he just stared down at her face. This pure and beautiful face was no different now from how it was two years ago. Her round eyes were like two shining chips of crystal, her face was palm-sized, but bright and healthy. And right now, her lips were a bit pursed, as if she were feeling a little impatient.
Shen Shu suddenly felt a bit upset.
He said indifferently, “I changed my mind.”
Ruan Tian’s big eyes were filled with doubts: “?”
Shen Shu was a good-looking man, even if he was expressionless, it still looked good. He put a hand in his pocket and said slowly: “I suddenly recalled that we had signed a prenuptial agreement before. However, you haven’t fulfilled any of the obligations between husband and wife over the past two years, so I don’t plan to give you any money.”
Ruan Tian: “???”
Shen Shu, it turns out you really don’t have a mother! She cursed in her heart.
In Ruan Tian’s memory, Shen Shu had never really been a stingy person.
In fact, he could be called very generous to almost everyone. It was only when he was facing her that he would suddenly transform into a miser.
But Ruan Tian really couldn’t understand: why had he suddenly changed his mind?
After thinking about it seriously for a moment, she could only come to one conclusion: Shen Shu had a sickness in his brain.
Of course, Ruan Tian felt a bit heartbroken to see her windfall disappearing, but since it was Shen Shu’s decision she knew there was nothing she could do.
After that, Shen Shu seemed unwilling to say even another word and he strode away from her old apartment building with a grim and frosty expression.
He sat in his car for a while and looked up at her balcony with his indifferent eyes. There were green potted plants lining her windowsill that were vibrant despite the cold weather, their green tendrils growing upward in search of the sun. Looking at them made him feel that they really resembled the woman herself, humble maybe, but also stubborn.
An inexplicable irritability surged in Shen Shu’s heart as he looked up at the balcony. His jaw tightened, and his expression turned even more sullen.
After a few seconds, his slender fingers tightly clasped around the steering wheel and he stepped on the accelerator, leaving without looking back.
Ruan Tian, who was finally at home, called Jiang Lili to vent. In the end, the main premise could be summed up in five words:
Shen Shu was a bastard!
Jiang Lili asked uncertainly, “So you don’t like him now?”
Jiang Lili could still remember how Ruan Tian always used to relentlessly pursue She Shu no matter how much he acted like a bastard.
Moreover, Jiang Lili really didn’t know whether Ruan Tian had truly drugged Shen Shu back then to start their relationship in the first place.
Of course, after seeing Ruan Tian’s crazy obsession with Shen Shu at the time, she felt that it was a possibility. She felt that there was nothing Ruan Tian couldn’t have done for that man.
Ruan Tian sat cross-legged on her sofa and took a bite of her apple before saying joyfully: “In truth, I’m a very noble personage, and he just isn’t worthy of me.”
Unfortunately, Jiang Lili’s next question struck directly at her soul: “Anyway, does this mean you have money now?”
Ruan Tian froze before muttering, “No.”
After a moment, she regained her vigor and asked, “Well, you say, if I went to set up a stall, what should I name it? The Cold Noodle Stall?”
Jiang Lili fell silent for a moment. She suddenly realized that Ruan Tian still didn’t seem to know that she was already at the center of an ‘incident’, after what had happened at the Shen Group Building today.
Ruan Tian took another bite of her apple and her cheeks bulged, but she still made a curious grunt into the phone.
Jiang Lili said, “Do you know that people are all calling you a crazy woman right now?” After a pause, she continued: “If you go to set up a stall, it won’t be a joke anymore, they really will think that you are crazy.”
Ruan Tian’s sprouting dream of becoming the owner of a noodle stall suddenly crumbled to pieces.

Thank you for the chapter ( ´ ▽ ` )ﾉ
wow wowwww what an a**hole- he treated her like that in hightschool?! bro I’m like 50% sure that the whole love of Ruan Tian toward the scum was drivern be the power of the plot which is now free of it.
Also scum ex-husban and scum friend of him deserve hell
Ooooo noice noice website!! The ability to switch between light and dark mode is cool!
Thank you for the chapter! Really wanted to beat Shen Shu and scream “leave her alone!”
‘Fulfill obligations between husband and wife’
Won’t you kill your own wife if she really do so?
I was expecting mc to have some retirement money… Too bad she’s as poor as ever. It’s wrong for mc to love his husband. And it’s also wrong for her to unlove him. The only good thing is Shen Shu to realize that yes, our mc really didn’t love me anymore. She’s already move on from him and from the shitty marriage.
Just hoping the ml is not as shitty as the ex-husband.
In this life you would be able to see different type of trashes
May a lighting struck you to death
Darn those who bullied her! May you rot in hell! 🤬
Tian Tian, stay 💪👌.
I just have issue with one point….our MC should have given up on shen shu the moment he just let those hoodlums try to drag her away. But she still continued to love him……I am just uncomfortable with this. How can she ignore this incident in the past? It doesn’t seem normal.
oh, did tian tian baby stepped on your pathetic little ego as a man, for you to cancel the divorce?
