“Sang Qi...” My throat clogged up. Though I always prided myself in my quick wits, right now, I couldn’t even form a complete sentence in my head.
My words were in pieces, hardly making sense even to myself, “Watson is a fraud. I’m sorry Sang Qi. I did this to you...”
“All businesses have risks. Ups and downs, peaks and valleys, sometimes we win and sometimes we don’t. There is no need to be so hard on yourself, Xia Zhi.”
His voice was gentle, unusually gentle. He was still the Sang Qi I knew. I knew he wouldn’t speak harshly to me.
He once told me no amount of money can be as important as I am. I felt so happy then, but now, I’d rather that his words were harsher and heavier against me, it’d make me feel slightly less terrible about myself.
“Are you in a lot of debt?” My voice trembled slightly.
