Chapter 674 – Xiao Feng and Yao Yun Qing’s Crisis Part 5
“Yao Yun Qing, don’t ask for a mile when I give you an inch. You should be glad you’re still of some use. Otherwise, I’d have already smacked you dead! You’re only a girl, a freeloader to the Yao family who raised you for twenty years. Don’t you think you should repay the family with something? How can that man you brought back, who only has outstanding innate talent, possibly compare to the medicinal pills that the Gong family will supply?”
‘I definitely can’t let Yao Yun Qing marry such a talent, it’ll be too risky for me. On the other hand, the Gong family is on my side, so they definitely won’t help this girl deal with me.
‘Most importantly, Gong Xin is lecherous by nature and already has countless concubines in his courtyard. So even though he might be placing a lot of importance on Yao Yun Qing right now, he’ll probably get bored of her someday. I will have received sufficient benefits from him by then so it won’t be too late to end her life…’
“Yao Yun Qing, you will be married off in a couple of days so you should start preparing yourself. When the time comes, I’ll arrange for a maid servant to take your place and complete the bridal ceremony to prevent others from knowing you aren’t a virgin!”
Yao Lin shook his sleeves firmly before turning around to leave, leaving Yao Yun Qing standing alone in the breeze…
She slowly closed her eyes, her eyelashes fluttering slightly as she muttered under her breath, “Xiao Feng…”
‘I’m sorry, but I seems like I can no longer accompany you in this life…’
It was night.
The sky looked as though it had been painted with a splash of black. The dim moonlight unknowingly melted into the darkness of the sky, making the night sky even heavier…
A black and lean figure lept like a fox through a window into the room.
Yao Yun Qing hastily opened her eyes and, just as she wanted to climb out of bed, a low and hoarse voice was heard. “It’s me!”
Her heart shook slightly upon hearing the man’s familiar voice. Tears welled up uncontrollably in her eyes as she looked with tear-misted eyes at the cold, but handsome face before her.
“Xiao Feng… Why are you here?”
Xiao Feng looked at Yao Yun Qing as he said with a cold expression, “I’ve come to take you away…”
The man was already pulling on her hand before she could say finish her piece, briskly heading out of the room.
But just as they stepped out the door, countless torches suddenly lit up the whole courtyard as numerous people surrounded them.
The crowd then broke their encirclement to clear a path. Then, a middle-aged man walked briskly down the path, looking gloomily at the two who were intertwining their hands. With a slight smirk, he commented, “Xiao Feng, if it weren’t for Yun Qing threatening me with her life, I wouldn’t have let you go. But since I, her uncle, can’t bear for Yun Qing to lose her life, I gave in in the end. Yet, I didn’t expect you would still dare to return. If I hadn’t arranged people to keep watch over this place, wouldn’t you have taken a member of our Yao family away?”
He had just complained that she was just a freeloader in the family. Yet now, she became a member of the Yao family…
Yao Yun Qing’s expression changed drastically and she hastily yelled, “Xiao Feng! Don’t worry about me and leave!”
Xiao Feng’s sword-like eyebrows knitted tightly, but he didn’t in the slightest loosen his grip on Yao Yun Qing’s hand. His low tone voice was then gradually heard under the tranquil night sky, making Yao Yun Qing’s heart shudder subconsciously.
“If I leave, we leave together!”
“Xiao Feng…” Yao Yun Qing’s choked on her sobs, she looked at the man’s handsome face, her tears blurring her vision. In this moment, this man’s figure was engraved deeply into her heart. It was that deep of an impression of him…
Perhaps the most fortunate thing that had happened to her after transmigrating to this world was getting to know this callous man…
“Haha!” Yao Lin raised his head as he laughed heartily. He then sneered and looked at them with contempt as he said, “Do you really think you can leave this place?”
