Ch. 46: Luo Xuan is Dead

TL and Editor: mystic_alix

Qiao Yu immediately ran down the corridor and hit the man wearing the hospital gown. 

“What are you doing,” a familiar voice said and Qiao Yu froze and quickly raised her head.

“You…,” she saw a familiar face and was stunned even more. After a long moment the two words she could only utter were, “Not dead?”

“Do you really want me to die,” Gu Feihan asked and raised his eyebrows.

“But the nurse just said…,” she muttered before looking back at the nurse.

“I thought you were talking about the woman who came with you…”

Qiao Yu was shocked before realizing that the other person was Luo Xuan. She looked back at Gu Feihan who nodded and reaffirmed her realization. 

Qiao Yu didn’t know what to say. She was immediately rushed back to the hospital bed and the nurse placed a new needle. Gu Feihan sat on the hospital bed next to her. 

“How much did you hear,” Qiao Yu asked, embarrassed. 


Qiao Yu blushed and wished she could find a corner to bury herself in, but she didn’t. So, she pulled the quilt over her head pretending to fall asleep.

A few minutes later, a nurse came over to replace the needles for the two injured patients and reminded Qiao Yu not to toss anymore. 

Qiao Yu was like a kid being disciplined for doing wrong things and Gu Feihan just watched her thoughtfully. 

Fortunately, their injuries weren’t particularly serious and after being in the hospital for a week they were discharged and could go home to recover. 

The police came several times to inquire about the kidnapping. Apparently the two men had already been arrested, but since Luo Xuan is dead there’s no principal culprit. 

“She was someone who could have had a great future.”

Qiau Yu hated the woman, but now that she was dead it wasn’t as satisfying as she imagined. After all, it was a tragedy nonetheless. The only thing that can be said is that she is now gone and there is no need to think about what she has done in her lifetime. 

“It’s really all your fault. Why did you have to stir up flowers and grass? And look at what it has caused,” Qiao Yu said to Gu Feihan, not knowing where to direct her anger, “It’s you who provoked these injustices.”

“I didn’t have anything to do with her,” Gu Feihan called out defiantly.

“As if I’d believe that.”

Gu Feihan swore to the sky, “All I asked for her to do was piss you off. At the time, she was invested in the role of a heroine in a TV series. I asked her for a favor and said that I’d give her the role.”

Qiao Yu was silent. 

What happened before is over–she told her herself that she should consider the future. With two months passing, there was only a month left and she needed to decide whether to go or stay, “Gu Feihan…”

She was about to discuss the matter at hand, but she suddenly felt nauseated and ran to the bathroom. After a while, the feeling finally faded. She washed her hands and saw Gu Feihan leaning against the wall, staring at her with interest.

[T/N]: So…we obviously know it’s a baby, but like why now–would have been more interesting if she left him again. Lol. I know, I’m heartless.

Ch. 45: Untitled

Two gunshots filled the air…

And the chain broke. Gu Feihan quickly picked her up. A piece from a burning pillar started to fall and he immediately turned around so that it would slam on his back. Luckily, most of it hit a beam but they both still fell.

“Gu Feihan, wake up,” Qiao Yu tried to wake him up–the smell of skin and flesh filling her nose. Gu Feihan coughed and he opened his eyes. He tried to get up but couldn’t. 

“I’m too hurt. I can’t move any more. Go. Save yourself.”

Qiao Yu insisted on helping him get up, “No, get yourself together, we’ll get out together. Don’t give up. We’ve just reunited. Don’t leave again.”

Gu Feihan pressed the back of her and blocked her mouth. Qiao Yu was stunned. 

After a quick moment, Gu Feihan let go of her reluctantly. He took a deep breath, one that took all his strength, to give his last words to her, “Live well.”

As soon as the last word escaped his lips, he fell and there was no more sound.

“Gu Feihan!”

Qiao Yu hugged him and tried to drag him out, but she didn’t have the strength. The smoke made it more difficult to breathe and she, too, lost consciousness. 

When Qiao Yu opened her eyes, she found herself lying on a hospital bed. Before the fire completely burned the warehouse, a rescue team was able to drag the both of them out. 

The injuries on her body weren’t major, but she didn’t care. She looked around for Gu Feihan but couldn’t find him. She pulled the nurse, “Where is the other person? How is he? Is he alive?”

The nurse hesitated for a moment and shook her head, “I’m sorry, the doctor tried his best, but he was badly injured.”

All the blood faded from Qiao Yu’s face. 

“Where is he now? Take me to see him,” she begged, grabbing the nurse’s sleeve. 

“Miss, please be careful. The wound on your shoulder hasn’t healed,” the nurse hurriedly tried to pull her off, but she couldn’t stop her. 

“How dare he die? He said he wanted to support me for the rest of my life? He said he owes me a child? How can he leave me like this,” she cried hysterically, pulling the needle from her arm and turned to leave the bed. The nurse couldn’t hold her off.

“Miss! You can’t just walk around, the wound will reopen.”

“Let me go, I want to see him. That bastard, how dare he leave me alone?”

She was wailing and the nurse wondered if it would be best to have the doctor provide a tranquilizer…until, suddenly, a man in a hospital gown appeared.

[T/N]: jfc, this chapter was a whoozy my friends. We’re so close to the end!

Ch. 44: Untitled

There was a stalemate between the two and the air was quiet–their breaths ever so present. In the end, Gu Feihan decided to drop the bat to the ground. One of the men immediately pushed him to the ground. 

“Please stop fighting,” Qiao Yu kept repeating the sentence, blood spitting out of her mouth, tears still falling. She couldn’t count how many kicks and punches he had suffered as the two men continued to beat him until they were exhausted. His eyes started to close as if he was dying. 

Luo Xuan smiled a wicked smile as she watched the scene in front of her–the more she looked at it, the more she felt at peace as she kept hysterically laughing. 

The two men looked at the scene and one of them whispered to the other, “Let’s take our money and go quickly. If we stay here longer, I feel like it’ll become more of a problem. Especially if the police come.”

The two men were about to leave, but they saw Luo Xuan aim a gun, “If anyone dare leave now, I will shoot.”

“We’re all on the same boat, you can’t do things this way.”

“All I want is for you two to burn this place then leave.”

The warehouse used to be an oil storage facility and it wouldn’t be difficult to set it on fire. The two started the work and flames burst immediately. 

Both men immediately took the money and left, but Luo Xuan refused to leave and raised the pistol on Qiao Yu with a clear intent to kill her. 

“Bitch, go to hell,” she screamed. Qiao Yu thought she was dead, but instead she saw Gu Feihan pressing Luo Xuan on the ground. 


A stray bullet hit an oil tank and began to drip, fueling the fire even more. Gu Feihan was able to snatch the gun from Luo Xuan’s hand and immediately knocked her to the ground. 

Afterwards, he hurried to Quao Yu but couldn’t figure out how to break the chain. He went back to Luo Xuan to check her pockets, but couldn’t find a key. It was possible that the two men had the key, but they’ve already left. 

The flames grew bigger and bigger and pieces of wood and stone began to fall. 

“Gu Feihan, leave me. Go.”

“No, shut up,” he whispered, his eyes wept. He grabbed the gun again. 

[T/N]: OMG. OMG. Is this going to be a Romeo and Juliet kind of ending!? My poor heart!!

Ch. 43: Kneeling For Her

TL and Editor: mystic_alix

“You are so naive. You thought I’d let you both go after you’ve done to humiliate me,” she wasn’t going to cooperate, and she suddenly laughed, “If it weren’t for you, I would not have fallen.”

“You are the one to blame,” Gu Feihan responded. 

Luo Xuan smiled, “Well then, Gu Feihan, if you want to save her…kneel down and kowtow to me. Apologize and I will let her go.”

Gu Feihan’s face paled and the veins on his forehead began to pop one by one from trying to suppress his anger.

“Hmmm…it seems that she’s not that important then. If you simply kneel down, then she’ll live. You want to save her yet you don’t want to be sincere.”

Luo Xuan grabbed Qiao Yu’s hair and placed the dagger on her face, “I will give you three seconds to think about it. If you don’t decide, I will destroy her face.”

The muscles on Gu Feihan’s face tightened. Qiao Yu tried to ignore the pain from her scalp and muttered, “Don’t believe her. She’s crazy.”

“Shut up!”

Luo Xuan was furious. She slammed Qiao Yu’s head onto a stone pillar.

“Stop,” Gu Feihan screamed, his expression mortified. 

“Ha! I see…”

Gu Feihan gritted his teeth. He’s a proud person and he’s never knelt down for anyone. 

“This was my fault…your situation. If you want revenge, punish me. Let her go. It’s none of her business.”

As long as Qiao Yu is safe, his dignity doesn’t matter. He only cares for her. 

“Do you think I’m stupid? As if I’d listen to you and obediently let her go,” Luo Xuan said sarcastically, “Stop talking nonsense. Kneel and apologize to me.”

Gu Feihan clenched his fist, but saw the knife had started to penetrate Qiao Yu’s cheeks–blood oozing out. He couldn’t stand it and he fell on his knees. Qiao Yu’s heart tightened from the sound and sight of Gu Feihan kneeling, and she started to cry. 

There was irony in the warm and affectionate look in Luo Xuan’s eyes. She started to laugh hysterically again and pointed a knife at Gu Feihan, “Beat him hard! Kill him!”


Qiao Yu shook her head and she hissed, her tears continued to flow down her cheeks, “Please, let him go.”

No one paid any attention to what she said and the men immediately hit Gu Feihan with a bat. He was defending himself instinctively until one man fell to the ground. 

“If you don’t stop, I will kill her,” Luo Xuan screamed and moved the dagger towards Qiao Yu’s neck, “Try me.”

[T/N]: Yo, this woman has gone batshit crazy. Please tell me Gu Feihan had a back-up plan. Also, can I just say that my heart panged a bit when Gu Feihan kneeled for Qiao Yu.

Ch. 41: I’ll Raise You Forever

TL and Editor: mystic_alix

Qiao Yu initially wanted to tease him, instead she found herself saying, “I will support you.”

“For a lifetime?”

“For a lifetime.”

Gu Feihan smiled and gave her a hug. Even though he knew he was coaxing her, he still felt sweetness in his heart and her words made him happier than any wealth in the world. 

After more than half a month of hard work, Gu Feihan fought and walked out with a beautiful turnaround. He defeated his opponent and regained market status. Moreover, the first thing he did after dealing with the crisis was have people deal with Luo Xuan. 

Overnight, Luo Xuan’s pure and innocent image was ruined overnight. Gu Feihan refused to end it until she was completely blacklisted from the entertainment industry. 

During this time, Qiao Yu didn’t know that the instigator was the man that slept beside her. She found herself brushing happily and occasionally thought about how Gu Feihan’s eyes had been so bad to see something with this white lotus. 

When she delivered Gu Feihan’s afternoon coffee, he suddenly hugged her from behind, lowered his head, and bit her neck. A tingling sensation spread through Qiao Yu’s body and her face completely flushed, “Don’t cause any trouble.”

“No one will see us, what are you afraid of,” he asked, holding her face, “It’s okay, we won’t make trouble. Come out with me tonight.”

“What’s the matter?”

“It’s a date. I have something for you.”

Qiao Yu sighed and didn’t have much time to think about it. She quickly responded and ran out for an escape fearing that something else would happen if she stayed as the tingling and warm touch on her neck made her whole body warm. 

Not long after, she received a call from Luo Xuan asking her if she could meet before she left the city. Luo Xuan said that she wanted to see Qiao Yu one last time to apologize for the past and to tell her other things.

“I won’t accept it…even if we meet,” Qiao Yu said, having no feelings for the woman.

“I’m in the parking lot on the ground floor of the company right now. I have something important to return to you. Just quickly come down, it won’t take long,” Luo Xuan hastily said before hanging up. 

Qiao Yu hesitantly walked down, but as soon as she opened the door someone quickly placed a veil over her mouth and nose. A strange fragrant hit her and her eyes went dark and she lost consciousness. 

When she woke up, she found herself tied up in a dilapidated warehouse. Not far away, two men with black masks watched her. As soon as her vision cleared, she saw tattoos on their arms and noticed they were holding knives and axes. 

“Finally awake?”

A sneer came from the side and when she looked for the direction of the voice, she saw Luo Xuan’s face. 

Luo Xuan walked towards Qiao Yu with a switchblade and raised her face with the tip of the knife, “You and Gu Feihan left me with nothing and a debt. Now I’m being chased by people everywhere. Say, should I settle this account with you?”

Luo Xuan pressed the cold blade on Qiao Yu’s cheek and with a light stroke, blood rolled down to her mouth. 

[T/N]: My jaws dropped. CAN THIS WOMAN PLS JUST GO AWAY. I’m so over her.

Ch. 42: Untitled

TL and Editor: mystic_alix

Qiao Yu felt a tingling sensation on her face, “What do you want?”

“I want you to die,” she screamed hysterically, “He clearly said that he didn’t like you, but when you left, he stopped looking at me. I was about to succeed and I would have become the wife of the president of Emperor. But I couldn’t, because of you!”

Qiao Yu didn’t respond. 

“After you left a year ago, Gu Feihan targeted me. Xue Zang kept tormenting for half a year. To get a good role, I had to fuck people. The director that did end up taking me was a pervert. I got addicted to drugs and it ruined my life.”

Luo Xuan spoke with excitement and Qiao Yu merely looked at her with a calm and cold face, “This is what you asked for.”

Luo Xuan responded by slapping her severely, and Qiao Yu coughed–her face quickly swelling, the corner of her mouth torn. 

“What do you want,” Qiao Yu asked, “If you really want me to die, just stab me to death. Why tie me?”

Luo Xuan sneered but said nothing. She ordered the two people guarding the door to call Gu Feihan and asked him to bring 50 million in cash to the broken warehouse alone, otherwise she would tear up the ticket. 

Gu Feihan asked to hear Qiao Yu’s voice and Luo Xuan. 

“Don’t come here, just call the police! Luo Xuan is crazy, she won’t let you go,” she screamed before one of the men hit her on the head with a fist. Qiao Yu screamed again before all she could hear was buzzing in her head. 

Luo Xuan reminded Gu Feihan that he only had three hours and he must bring the money to the designated place–if not, all he would have to collect is Qiao Yu’s body. 

Qiao Yu couldn’t understand what was being said, but noticed that Luo Xuan seemed to be in a good mood once she hung up the phone. 

“Do you remember when confidential information was leaked out?”

Gu Feihan hadn’t told her much information about what happened, but from what she gathered it seemed that the general manager of the technical department was behind something since he was suddenly suspended. 

“I did it. I wanted to give him another chance. As long as he married me, I would let it go. He disagreed and I was left to sell the information to his opponent. I wanted to see him defeated, but I didn’t expect that he’d survive.”

Luo Xuan sneered and held Qiao Yu’s face again, “Qiao Yu, why does he keep you in his heart–no matter what I do, he doesn’t have space for anyone else.”

“It’s because I’m not the type of person to hire someone to kill someone’s child,” Qiao Yu said, cutting off Luo Xuan. 

In response, Luo Xuan laughed in anger. There was a sudden change in the air, and she thrusted the switchblade into Qiao Yu’s shoulder blade. 

Her screams tore the air. 

Qiao Yu’s face was covered in cold sweat, her face more swollen–her skin so white as if no blood rushed through her veins. Luo Xuan thought that she was being too loud and ordered one of the men to block her mouth. 

Not knowing how long it had been, she heard someone outside and light shone on her face as someone pushed the dilapidated doors. The sudden intense light started to make her feel dizzy. 

It was Gu Feihan. He threw the box of money on the floor. His eyes were hardening, his body covered in ice the moment he saw Qiao Yu’s current state. 

“I’ve brought the money. Let her go.”

[T/N]: Okay, why is it that female leads have to go through so much. Ugh. We gotta change this trope. Maybe I’ll write a story?

Ch. 40: His Crisis

TL and Editor: mystic_alix

If someone had asked Gu Feihan to explain their situation, he felt as though he wouldn’t be able to explain it clearly. He did feel guilty for the child, but he wasn’t being kind and loving to her because of the child. 

Even if the lost child was theirs, he believes he should listen. Should he lose, it would only be losing money. 

Qiao Yu looked at his face and noticed that he wasn’t in the best mood and she dared not say anything. She shrank and moved away from him. 

“Come closer,” he commanded after he caught a glimpse of her actions, but Qiao Yu shook her head and moved further. She didn’t know that this little act would anger a sleeping beast as Gu Feihan suddenly pulled her over by the arm and pressed her into the seat before kissing her. 

Qiao Yu stayed motionless and stiff. The powerless feeling of a fist hitting cottons spread throughout Gu Feihan’s body and he felt  headache begin to form, “Sometimes, I really just want to strangle you directly.”

Qiao Yu continued to be silent. She wasn’t angry because of what Luo Xuan said to her, but because he chose not to tell her about the meeting. 

Since the day of the banquet, Qiao Yu’s attitude towards him was obviously colder and Gu Feihan asked what was wrong several times, but she only answered with nothing and that it was okay. 

The company’s current situation didn’t help as the past two days, so many things went wrong–confidential information had been leaked and sold to a rival company; as a result, Gu Feihan lost several major customers. 

Dijue’s family was a big business and the loss wasn’t too bad, but a wave of unrest occurred. Some took the opportunity to spread rumors by saying things that the company’s products were defective, shoddy, and counterfeit. Gu Feihan was pushed to the forefront of the storm again and again. 

Qiao Yu could tell that he was busy. In order to deal with the multiple emergencies, several departments were forced to work overtime. Gu Feihan was constantly running around for various meetings and conferences–not to mention all meals and accomodations were at the company. 

It was another overnight overtime and Qiao Yu brought in freshly brewed coffee but felt that she shouldn’t give it to him.

“You should take a nap before continuing to work,” she said as she sorted through documents he had just finished. Moments later, she ushered him to lie down on the sofa but Gu Feihan lightly pulled her pretending to be pitiful and lay his head on her leg. 

Qiao Yu felt bad and agreed. Instead of taking a nap, he continued to be just there pulling her into a conversation, “What if I can’t make it this time around?”

“You think too much. It’s not a big deal. After so many years of heavy winds and waves, why should you be afraid of such a small setback?”

She stroked his hair, but they both knew in their hearts that things were not as simple this time. The stocks of the company showed this. 

“But this time I feel like I can’t make it anymore,” he reluctantly pulled to play rogue, “If I go bankrupt, you have to support me.”

[T/N]: Cute, I guess. Y’know, I wonder if Luo Xuan and the General Manager had something to do with this.

Ch. 39: She Was Angry

TL and Editor: mystic_alix

Luo Xuan rushed over and hugged Gu Feihan from behind. He didn’t evade nor push her away, he just stood there indifferently, motionless. 

Qiao Yu couldn’t stand watching them longer and she turned to leave. She thought that she didn’t care and tried to force herself to unsee what she wasn’t supposed to see, but she did–anger, disappointment, resentment, betrayal, countless negative emotions surged in her heart. She felt as if she was drowning. 

For a long while, Qiao Yu sat alone on a bench in the garden. Gu Feihan and Luo Xuan walked out one after the other and before Luo Xuan went to look for the general manager, she spotted Qiao Yu and gave her a provocative smile. Suddenly, a suit jacket was draped over her shoulder. It was still warm.

“Why are you sitting here,” Gu Feihan asked and held her cold hand, his face clearly frowning. 

“It was so noisy inside and I started to feel uncomfortable,” she said looking for an excuse, “Where did you go?”

“To see my grandfather.”

He was afraid of her misunderstanding and decided to leave out the part where he saw Luo Xuan, but he didn’t know that his answer made Qiao Yu even more uncomfortable. 

“If you’re done, can we go back? I’m feeling uncomfortable and I want to rest early.”

Gu Feihan could feel that there was something wrong, but she didn’t say anything so he couldn’t ask for more. He stretched out his hand to help her up but she pushed him away. His eyes darkened. 

Absent-mindedly, Qiao Yu walked without looking and one of her heels accidentally got stuck on a crack on one of the floor tiles and she almost fell face down. 

Gu Feihan immediately ran towards her and helped her up. Qiao Yu buried her head in his arms and listened to him reprimand her. Suddenly, the tip of her nose felt sour and could feel tears beginning to build. 

“Gu Feihan.”


She gritted her teeth and hesitated for a while, but she couldn’t hold it back, “If you are only good to me because of the child, it’s not needed. I don’t blame you.”

“Okay,” was the response he gave. It was so calm that Qiao Yu felt a little more uncomfortable.

She was about to say more, but Gu Feihan said, “Since you came back, I’ve been punctual at coming home–more punctual that when a woman’s period comes. What else do you have to say? Say it.”

He controlled his anger so that Qiao Yu wouldn’t get angry, and so he swallowed his stomach instead of saying more. 

When he felt that she’d calmed down, Gu Feihan asked, “That woman, what did she tell you?”

“How did you know,” she asked shocked. 

“What else would you be so upset about,” he said incredulously. 

“She told me that you are suddenly being good to me because you felt that you owe me for the child.”

While they were talking, Gu Feihan’s special assistant saw them and immediately came over and opened the car door.

Gu Feihan smiled and guided her into the car.

“Do I treat you with kindness for you or the lost child. Don’t you know the answer in your heart?”


[T/N]: Gu Feihan, you’re either an idiot or an idiot. Of course, she wouldn’t know!

Ch. 38: Luo Xuan’s Provocation

TL and Editor: mystic_alix

Facing a threat, Luo Xuan smiled even more provocatively.

“He treats you well now, but it’s because he pushed you down the stairs…which caused you to lose your child. Of course he feels guilty, that child had his blood. It’s not love at all.”

“Do you think I’d believe you,” Qiao Yu asked rhetorically, “Weren’t you the one who instigated in the beginning? He admitted to me that he didn’t want to kill the child at all, but you did…one plan that included hiring someone to kill me in a hit and run.”

As Qiao Yu exposed Luo Xuan’s actions, the latter was just astonished–without any panic or guilty conscience. 

A moment later, Luo Xuan smiled a smile that was full of hatred and revenge, “Me? I merely wanted to help him, because he continued to look hesitant. Ask yourself, before you got pregnant, what was his attitude like? Then, suddenly, his attitude changes after the child?”

Qiao Yu pressed her lips and didn’t say a word. Although she didn’t want to admit it, Gu Feihan’s attitude did in fact change after the child had died. He was suddenly kind to her and she wasn’t sure whether it was because of his love for her or if it was to make up for the lost child. However, she refused to show weakness in front of the woman who was constantly conniving against her. 

“No matter because this is between me and him. What does this have to do with you? I’m surprised you have time to be nostalgic, shouldn’t you be looking after your man? What do you think the general manager would say if I told him you called Gu Feihan two days ago…begging him to meet you?”

“You…how did you know,” Luo Xuan asked, a small crack on her facade. 

“You don’t have to worry about that. All you have to remember is to not eat what’s in the bowl and look at what’s in the pot. It’s better to behave and guard yourself,” Qiao Yu noted before beginning to walk away again. 

Luo Xuan, however, grabbed her once again, “Ha. I’m here to remind you that guilt and liking are different things. Even if it isn’t me, there will be others. Someone will take your place and it’ll be just like before.”

Qiao Yu clenched her fingers and looked at Luo Xuan arrogantly, before continuing to walk away before her face turned pale. It’s true, she couldn’t tell whether Gu Feihan truly liked her or if it was because of guilt. For that matter, what if what Luo Xuan said was true. She took two sips of champagne to calm herself down. 

Gu Feihan went to see his grandfather and didn’t return for a long time. Qiao Yu couldn’t wait anymore and finally went to look for him after all the pent up anger. But she didn’t know where to go. After a while, she realized she was lost. She wanted to ask someone for directions, but there was no one around. 

A few more steps later, she noticed two familiar figures near a stone sculpture–it was Gu Feihan and Luo Xuan. She stared and froze in place. There was an impulse to run over and confront them, but she couldn’t find the courage to take a step. She admitted to herself that she was afraid of the truth. 

From her current perspective, it looks as if Luo Xuan was a little anxious and she could hear pieces about a child and the like. Then she watched Gu Feihan turn his back to her, but she couldn’t tell whether it was out of anger or joy. 

[T/N]: There’s no way Luo Xuan is pregnant!! Maybe, she’s blackmailing him? JUST UGH. Although Gu Feihan is still not my favorite, like Luo Xuan please go disappear.

Ch. 37: Untitled

TL and Editor: mystic_alix

Hearing what happened, Qiao Yu’s eyes darkened, “I’m sorry.”

“I’m sharing this with you today, not because I want to hear your apology…but to let you know that the grudges from the previous generation have passed.”

Gu Feihan shook his head and smiled bitterly before turning around to touch her face, “The last thing I’ve regretted in my life is to impose your father’s mistakes on you and hurt you so.”

He spoke seriously and every word was full of affection and pleading. Qiao Yu could feel her heart beginning to tremble. 

She didn’t say anything. He took her by the wrist and embraced her in his arms, “If you stop bearing the hate, we can start again–regardless of three months or three years. As long as we’re alive, we can be together, okay?”

Qiao Yu’s mouth moved, but no sound came out. She admitted that it was the most touching thing she’d ever heard in her life and it easily shattered the defense she had built.

“You…,” she turned her face in panic, afraid to go, but her face was red, “You let me think about it.”

Gu Feihan was not in a hurry on this matter. He had time to accompany her and slowly melt her heart. 

“What happened afterwards? How did you reconcile with your family?”

“It was also after that accident. My mother was desperate and the only thing she could was bring me back and beg grandpa. Although he didn’t get my dad out, he helped me up. I have the achievements that I have now because of him.”

He spoke quietly and Qiao Yu listened, not making a sound. 

When they finished, Qiao Yu exclaimed that she was hungry and wanted to go to the banquet hall to eat something. As she got there, she saw Luo Xuan who was with the general manager. She was talking and laughing. It seemed that the relationship was good. 

The four of them bumped into each other and said their hellos. Although Gu Feihan and the general manager were on good terms, Qiao Yu and Luo Xuan were not. They’re both smiling, but Qiao Yu can feel Luo Xuan’s eyes on her–it was filled with hatred. 

Gu Feihan glanced at Luo Xuan with a warning and took Qiao Yu to walk away. They weren’t able to get far before Gu Feihan’s uncle came to look for him since their grandpa had forgotten to say something. 

“Wait for me here, I’ll be back soon.”

Qiao Yu nodded.

“Miss Qiao, it’s been a long time.”

Qiao Yu turned around indifferently, knowing whose voice it was and said, “Is something the matter?”

“Not at all. I heard that you’ve reunited with Feihan. Congratulations,” Luo Xuan greeted with an indifferent smile, “But do you know why he went back to find you?”

“I don’t know and I don’t want to know,” Qiao Yu responded before walking away, but Luo Xuan grabbed her by the arm.

“You are a good woman, using a child to tie his heart…but, unfortunately, he doesn’t love you…but the lost child.”

“Let go of me,” Qiao Yu replied, “Otherwise, I will call someone.”

[T/N]: Luo Xuan, jfc…go away. I haven’t missed you and I’m sure Qiao Yu and Gu Feihan haven’t missed you either.
