Chapter 196: She is called Xiao Xi
This strange scene stunned Ye Tian Xie and Su Fei Fei. When Su Fei Fei’s hand was about to touch her, the little girl’s brows slightly twitched a bit……Instantly, Su Fei Fei’s hand suddenly stopped and a strange expression appeared on her face. She tried to move her hand forward, but she found that she had touched an invisible glass, having no way of moving forward.
“This…..Tian Xie, what is happening……Why is my hand…..Why does it feel like something is blocking it even though there is clearly nothing there.” Su Fei Fei looked at her own hand in a stunned manner and then she tried to stretch her hand out again……The same scene happened again. An invisible glass appeared around the little girl and she had no way of touching her body.
This strange phenomenon that violated the natural laws of the world made Su Fei Fei lose herself in fear. After everything that had happened tonight, she began to feel like everything was a dream.
This little girl was really strange……The thunderstorm, the knocking on the door, the closed eyes, and that silent calm…..Also this phenomenon that could not be explained with common sense…….
Ye Tian Xie reached his hand at the girl and surprised Su Fei Fei. With the same movement, Ye Tian Xie’s hand was actually not stopped as he reached out and touched her shoulder.
After being drenched for so long, the little girl’s body was frighteningly cold. When his hand touched her shoulder, he could tell that her body was slightly trembling. Suddenly the little girl rushed forward and forcefully threw herself into Ye Tian Xie’s chest, tightly hugging him…..Very tightly…..
Ye Tian Xie and Su Fei Fei looked at each other in blank dismay and were silent for a while.
“Little sister.” Ye Tian Xie gently patted her shoulder as he probingly spoke to her.
The little girl that was slightly trembling and gently crying while hugging Ye Tian Xie spoke. Her voice was as gentle as a fairy, but it was clearly filled with difficulties……As if, these two words already took a lot of effort from her.
Big brother? Su Fei Fei looked at Ye Tian Xie with a strange look as if she was asking…..Is she your sister? But actually, she already knew that Ye Tian Xie no longer had any family left in this world. He only had three friends and had no little sister at all.
“I am not your big brother little sister, you’ve recognized the wrong person.” Ye Tian Xie revealed a helpless smile to Su Fei Fei as he told the little girl the truth.
“Big…..brother, big brother…..”
She tightly hugged his body, burying her head into his chest as she silently cried.
Su Fei Fei once again tried to touch the little girl. Her hand came within a few centimeters of the little girl’s body, but it could not go forward anymore…..This impossible scenario made Su Fei Fei very disturbed, but she also felt a hard to describe uncomfortable feeling.
“Tian Xie…..She really is strange. Why can I not touch her body? Is it an illusion? Also…..Tian Xie, look at her shoulder, there is a note there.”
With Su Fei Fei’s reminder, Ye Tian Xie’s eyes looked over at the little girl’s shoulder……There was indeed a note there. The little girl had stood in the rain for so long and her clothes were completely wet. It it was a normal note, then it would have been distorted by the rain or even would have been destroyed…..But that note on the hem of her shoulder was strangely in perfect condition, as if the rain had not touched it at all.
Ye Tian Xie probingly touched the note and it was easily lifted up, falling into his hand. Opening the note, he saw that there two simple sentences written on it.
The first line only said: Her name is Xiao Xi.
Like he had been struck by lightning, Ye Tian Xie’s eyes suddenly constricted. His body turned stiff and his focused eyes suddenly became relaxed……While he was absent minded, that piece of paper gently fell from his hand and landed on the floor.
“Tian Xie?” Ye Tian Xie’s reaction made Su Fei Fei flustered as she asked in a nervous voice.
Lifting up the little girl in his arms, Ye Tian Xie suddenly charged out the door, charging out ten meters where she had just been standing. He looked up and watched the rain falling in the dark night while quietly standing there with no expressions. Even though the rain fell into his eyes, he did not blink at all. It was as if he had completely lost himself.
“Tian Xie! What’s wrong Tian Xie!” The frightened Su Fei Fei ignored the heavy rain and the flashing lightning as she ran out beside him. She hugged his body as if to prevent him from suddenly running away, “Tian Xie, stop scaring me. What’s happening with you?”
Su Fei Fei that instantly became drenched could not feel the rain falling on her or hear the sounds of the thunder roaring at all, she was completely focused on Ye Tian Xie alone……The violent reaction and mood change he experienced was only displayed for one person…..His Xian’er.
Ye Tian Xie raised his head, looking at the dark sky as he shouted the name that deeply enveloped his dreams, the name he could never forget, the name that was imprinted onto his very soul, but his voice was swallowed up by the rain and thunder. Ye Tian Xie closed his eyes and tightly clenched his fists, as he continued to ask himself……
That smell that day, that was no mistake.
Why……She was clearly by his side, but she did not meet with him.
What can’t be said between the two of us? Even if she encountered some kind of giant problem…..what did it count for? Could we not face it together!?
The giant shout shook Su Fei Fei’s ears and soul. She closed her misted eyes and did not say a single word as she silently hugged him……Being able to hug him like this was good no matter where they were. The warmth she received every minute, every second was all very precious……
If she left him one day, would he desperately shout her name like this…….If it was like this, then even if she could only think of him, then she would be able to live a happy life.
Her hand was suddenly grabbed by another hand and Su Fei Fei looked up, meeting Ye Tian Xie’s bright, but lonely eyes. Her hair had been messed up by the rain and there were several strands that stuck to her forehead. Silently watching her, Ye Tian Xie’s stiff face suddenly softened. Then he revealed a faint smile, one that made her heart beat faster……Because his eyes suddenly turned gentle, a kind of gentleness that she had never seen before…..
“Fei Fei, become my girlfriend, alright?” He gently used his hand to help her fix the strands of hair on her forehead messed up by the rain. His voice, which had become even more gentle, pierced right into her heart…..
Her happiness came too suddenly that Su Fei Fei just stood there stunned. She completely, completely……did not believe her own ears.
“If you agree, then I’ll be with you and protect you for a lifetime, never letting anyone hurt you. If anyone wishes to hurt you, I will make them pay a terrible price. If you don’t agree……I will chase after you, until you do.” He came close to her face as he gently spoke into her ears.
It came too fast and too sudden……Su Fei Fei still had not recovered after hearing him scream “Xian’er” and now she was suspecting that she was in a dream when she heard what he said……Just a few seconds ago, he had used all his energy to call for his Xian’er. Why is it that in a blink of an eye, he suddenly forgot everything, forgetting the emotions of his past, to begin a new love……
“Tian Xie……” Su Fei Fei covered her lips. She did not know whether the water drops on her face were tears or raindrops as she gently muttered, “When men say things…..they have to keep it…..”
“Un, I’ll always keep my promises. Otherwise, let me forever be Fei Fei’s bodyguard.” Ye Tian Xie used his little finger to hook Su Fei Fei’s little finger, tightly gripping together. His lips moved and he revealed a smile that contained no impurities, no lies, and no signs of being forced.
Su Fei Fei looked at him in a daze and after a while, she jumped into his chest. Under the cover of the rain and thunder, she broke out in tears……No one knew that it would be so painful for her the first time she fell in love with a man. No matter how she laughed and how lively she acted, she could not suppress the pain that came when she thought of her future……She knew that once she left him, her heart would be filled with a pain that could never be healed.
His emotions for his Xian’er were very deep. She had thought that even if Xian’er never came back, he would wait for her for his entire lifetime…..In his heart, there would be no room for anyone else.
She never thought that for an unknown reason, the wish she wanted the most actually came true. What he gave her was a lifelong promise.
She did not know why this happened or what he was thinking at this moment…..But she did not want to ask or find out. If this was a dream, she would rather fall deeper into it, never waking up.
This scene froze in the middle of the rain for a long time…….
The purple clothed little girl stood at the entrance, silently listening to the rain fall onto the ground. Her eyes were still naturally closed, never being opened.
Returning to the living room, Ye Tian Xie and Su Fei Fei’s bodies were already completely soaked. Ye Tian Xie was still fine, but if Su Fei Fei wasn’t wearing Ye Tian Xie’s coat, the thin pyjamas she wore would have made it seem like she was wearing nothing after it got soaked.
The note that fell onto the ground was picked up by Ye Tian Xie. Without waiting for Su Fei Fei to ask, he gave a gentle laugh and said, “It’s written by Xian’er. It says that she is called Xiao Xi.”
Su Fei Fei slightly nodded and did not ask anything else. She then began to analyze the little girl named “Xiao Xi”.
Ye Tian Xie opened the note and looked at the second sentence. The words written……made him slightly knit his brows.
The words were – You mustn’t let her open her eyes!
