Chapter 1741: Brother Gu Said, “Heart-wrenching, Is It Not?” (Part Two)
Mo Fei lowered her eyes slightly to hide her vulnerability.
“Auntie, I’m done showering. I can play with you now.” Ding Yuejia came out of the bathroom. This time, he was wearing a teddy bear print pajamas and was looking up at Mo Fei.
“Okay, go play with Ding Yuejia first.” Ye Yuwei ended the call when she heard the commotion.
Ye Yuwei hung up the phone and looked back at the man who was instructing Wen Tao to do something behind the desk. “Mo Fei said Mo Tian is really dead. She killed him.”
Gu Juexi looked up at Ye Yuwei. Mo Fei might be stubborn, but she would not lie to Ye Yuwei.
However, the truth was that Mo Tian was not dead.
This could only mean that she really did not know that Mo Tian was still alive.
What was Mo Fei going to do?
“Do you think Mo Fei’s a good person?” Gu Juexi asked again.
“As I said, even though she does things at a whim and doesn’t follow the rules, she would never—”
“Kill a good person, am I right?” Gu Juexi asked.
Ye Yuwei pursed her lips and waved her hands in the air excitedly before nodding. “Yes.”
“Do you think that she’s not a bad person if she doesn’t kill good people?” Gu Juexi asked again.
“Gu Juexi, have you never killed anyone before? Do you have fewer lives on your hands than her? Do you dare to call yourself a bad person?” Ye Yuwei pressed her hands on the table. This question was even more direct than Gu Juexi’s earlier question.
Gu Juexi leaned back in his chair and looked at his wife who was questioning him.
That was a good question.
“Do you know what the biggest difference between you and Mo Fei is? You’re a soldier, so it’s normal for you to kill people. This is your mission. Mo Fei’s a killer. It’s her job to kill people. She gets money, so she’s doing something wrong. However, the people you’ve killed are of the same type. You’re a good person, you’re a hero, and she’s a bad person.”
Gu Juexi clasped his hands together.
“Do you know why it became like this? She did it for money, and I did it for the so-called justice. Ye Yuwei, let me tell you, no one in this world cares who you killed. They will only stand on their moral high ground and see why you killed. On the moral high ground, you are a good person. If you’re beneath that moral high ground, you are a bad person.”
“What’s the moral high ground?” asked Ye Yuwei.
“Mommy, mommy!” Xi Xi shouted as soon as she entered the room.
Ye Xicheng was originally following behind her. However, when he entered the room, he noticed that the atmosphere was not quite right, so he held his sister’s hand and stopped her from speaking.
Gu Juexi felt that this was a good question.
“Human nature,” Gu Juexi said. It was a vague word, but it was painfully accurate.
Ye Yuwei paused because of Gu Juexi’s words.
“It’s a natural disaster. It’s my duty to donate money because I earn a lot. It’s my fault if I don’t donate money. Ye Yuwei, do you think it’s right for those people who don’t donate money to criticize me for whether I donate money or otherwise?” Gu Juexi asked sharply.
Ye Yuwei slowly retracted her hands. Her hands were unconsciously tightening and loosening in turns, indicating her nervousness.
This was a very human issue. The rich should donate more because they were rich. If they did not donate, they would be condemned.
However, from another perspective, the rich earned their own money, so why would they be criticized for this?
Gu Juexi had donated three million yuan to help with the flood last time. There were many different opinions about this matter, but Ye Yuwei remembered clearly one particular statement—he only donated this much even though he earned so much money.
