Chapter 685 – Xiao Feng and Yao Yun Qing’s Crisis Part 16
A light cough was heard from her side when Yao Lan was in doubt. Yao Yun Qing’s body stiffened as she turned her head to the man who already had his eyes opened. All sorts of feelings welled up in her heart momentarily, making her at a loss of what to say…
“Xiao Feng, I’m sorry.”
She lowered her head slightly before continuing, ashamed, “If it wasn’t for me, you wouldn’t…”
“It is my responsibility!” Xiao Feng knitted his sword-like brows slightly as he continued coldly, “Moreover, I’m alright so you don’t need to blame yourself…”
Yao Yun Qing pursed her lips.
‘Why is this guy treating me so well? Is it just because of him wanting to be responsible toward me for taking my innocence?’
“Yue Er,” Xiao Feng shifted his gaze toward Mu Ru Yue as he asked feebly, “You are back?”
Mu Ru Yue smirked as she replied, “I was gone for such a long time so it was time for me to return. I’m afraid that if I came back any later, my sister-in-law would’ve been snatched away.”
Xiao Feng’s body stiffened abruptly. He shifted his ink-black eyes toward Yao yun Qing. He then parted his lips to say in a low and hoarse voice, “No… nobody can snatch her away!”
Yao Yun Qing was startled and looked somewhat puzzled at the man’s handsome face.
‘Did he mean that… he won’t let me marry anyone else?’
A peculiar feeling surged in Yao Yun Qing’s heart upon hearing his words. Satisfaction brimmed in her heart.
The young girl watched on dazedly at the two’s intimate interaction. Her heart seemed to be squeezed hard by something, making her complexion turn as white as snow. Her entire body swayed for a while.
Even though I was the one that brought him out from the underground prison, his heart only has Yao Yun Qing…
Her heart seemed to be crushed ruthlessly by a hand, making the girl feel suffocated from the pain. She obviously had only seen this man last night, but she was already deeply captivated by his graceful bearing…
“Eldest brother, I’ve come to bring Qing Er and you back to the Xiao family.” Mu Ru Yue smiled lightly as she continued, “But there is still a matter that needs to be dealt with here…”
Mu Ru Yue shifted her gaze toward Yao Yun Qing as she said that. She then asked, “Qing Er, how is your grandfather’s condition?”
The smile on Yao Yun Qing’s face instantly faded away upon hearing her question.
She smiled bitterly and replied, “If grandfather could still move, how could second uncle be able to create such a commotion? My purpose in coming back this time was to see grandfather for the last time. He is already at his limit. Hence, even if I would be walking right into a trap for coming back, I wouldn’t regret it. Otherwise, I will live my entire life in sorrow and remorse. Yet, the only mistake I made was bringing Xiao Feng back with me to the Yao family…”
Her gaze shifted to Xiao Feng as she pursed her lips a little and said that softly.
Xiao Feng didn’t say anything, but a complex gaze flashed past his cold black eyes.
Mu Ru Yue couldn’t help but to smile at this somewhat awkward couple. She knew that Yao Yun Qing held a position in her eldest brother’s heart. Otherwise, with her eldest brother’s personality, how could he get involved in her matters just for wanting to be responsible for her? He undoubtedly wouldn’t risk his life for her unless she had a position in his heart.
He just didn’t want to give up on her even if he were to be severely wounded.
“Qing Er,” Mu Ru Yue’s gaze once again landed on Yao Yun Qing’s delicate and pretty face as she continued, emphasizing each of her following words heavily, “I think I can save your grandfather’s life.”
In this case, Yao Yun Qing wouldn’t lose her sole protective umbrella in the Yao family. She then wouldn’t be bullied by anyone, as long as the old man of the Yao family lived…
Most importantly, that old man seemed to be treating Yao Yun Qing really well while Yao Yun Qing similarly was reluctant in losing him…
