Lu Yanchen’s gaze darkened and his expression was imperceptible. “You shouldn’t have to feel bad about anything. If there’s anyone in the wrong, it was me.”
If not because she had saved him, her family wouldn’t have had to go through that.
Lu Yanchen hugged her tightly—her body was truly feeling really hot—and buried his head between her neck, whispering, “If you hadn’t saved me back then, your sister wouldn’t have known who Yang Sitong was, and that woman wouldn’t have had to do all that just to hide it all…”
Shi Guang interrupted him, “Don’t say that, Lu Yanchen!” Her tone was filled with hidden emotions. “You did not yell out for me to save you at that time, and neither did I regret or blame you! It’s just that when you mentioned you did nothing while you saw my sister being bullied, it did feel extremely terrible for me. I just feel that certain encounters in life are truly really… devastating!”
For some reason, she found herself choking and tearing up.
Lu Yanchen’s warm kiss came approaching. However, it was planted on her forehead. “But, even if you have to devastate my heart, I would give it all just to have an encounter to meet you.”
Shi Guang scoffed bitterly, “But, it was my heart that was devastated.”
The wheel of fate was truly one that was indecipherable at times. For her to reach this point of her life with Lu Yanchen, she did not know if it were affinity or a tribulation.
The winds were always strong in the mountainous areas, such that even though they had a fire on a night as such, it was still cold. Shi Guang felt as though her head was really dizzy and her eyelids were heavy, but she surmised that she had a strong constitution and shouldn’t get into a fever that easily.
However, the fact was that she had spent the entire day worrying in the rain and traversing through the mountain and forest looking for Lu Yanchen. Even though she was wearing a raincoat, the water that she came into contact with was still icy cold.
When she caught sight of Lu Yanchen and saw how he was soaked through the clothes and yet was still fine despite spending an entire day in the hole, she felt that she should be even more fine.
After all, she was an athlete and her body constitution shouldn’t be that far off from Lu Yanchen’s.
Soon enough, she composed her emotions. “Don’t feel guilty or think about having to make up to me for anything. There’s no need to. If those are the thoughts that have been filling your head for the entire time, I definitely will not stick with you to the end. I don’t want a hubby whose intention of being together with me is not solely because of love. If you wish to make it up to me, divorce then and give me all of your money.”
He furrowed his brows. “Who said that the reason why I’m with you is because of guilt or because I’m trying to make it up to you? Do I seem like the sort of guy who would do that?”
“I don’t know, but at times, I’ll feel like not wanting to see you and wanting to divorce you…” She looked at him, her face dancing with the shadows of sparks of flames. “That’s because I feel extremely hollow at times. It’s as though you’re walking and your feet suddenly touches no ground… as though you’re walking and you suddenly turn blind, and can’t see what’s ahead of you. And there I am, stuck in the middle, not knowing whether the next step I take will cause me to fall all the way down or reach a beautiful palace at the end of it.”
Her voice brought with it a sense of apprehensiveness. “Do you understand the conflicts in my heart?”
“I do!” He kissed her on the forehead—her body was truly burning up right now. “You’re running a fever.”
“I’m alright. I probably just feel a little terrible and it’s cold here. Lu Yanchen, aren’t you cold?”
“No!” He hugged her around the waist and scooped her up onto his lap.
