Chen Dong tried to stand up straight and pretended to be “standing” behind Ye Linglong.
He tried to remain calm, but the only thing left in his sight was Gu Qingying’s silhouette.
Her haggard, weak and pale face cut Chen Dong’s heart like a knife.
He dared not imagine just how much pain Gu Qingying had endured for him in the past few days.
But he also did not dare to show the slightest emotion, because he knew that the little fool would come over.
And he …… did not want the little fool to come over.
The next second.
Chen Dong’s jaws cracked and a loud boom went off in his head.
He saw Gu Qingying suddenly break away from Elder Long and run towards this side.
Don’t come over!
Chen Dong almost instinctively noodled the corners of his mouth, wanting to burst into a roar.
But he finally forced himself to hold back.
In an instant, Chen Dong was terrified and at a loss, as if he was an ant on a hot pot.
He couldn’t come over, if he did, he would be noticed!
Chen Dong’s hands subconsciously gripped Ye Linglong’s shoulders, and because the force was too heavy, it caused Ye Linglong’s eyebrows to wrinkle in pain, and a wailing sound came out of her mouth and nose.
At such a moment, even the forces behind the killer did not know who it was.
Gu Qingying running over was undoubtedly attention-grabbing.
If there were any eyes of the forces behind the curtain around, it would be enough to bring about Gu Qingying’s and the Gu family’s downfall!
In the line of sight.
Gu Qingying had already rushed out of the crowd, appearing extremely conspicuous.
Long Lao, who was chasing after her, was also terrified, his expression terrified.
It had to stop!
In a flash of lightning, Chen Dong’s expression suddenly became resolute.
He pulled the corner of his mouth and revealed a smile.
It was evil and determined.
He slowly approached Ye Linglong’s ear and whispered, “Can you do me one more favour?”
The heat, caused Ye Linglong’s white sun and delicate ears, to instantly turn red.
Redness that quickly swept up to her face.
Almost subconsciously, Ye Linglong spoke, “Yes.”
However, Chen Dong’s words caused Ye Linglong’s delicate body to tremble, and the only remaining sanity in her mind dissipated.
Chen Dong said, “Can I kiss you?”
Ye Linglong was completely dumbfounded and lost the ability to think at all.
Feeling the hot breath in her ears, the kind of tingling that was like electricity swept through her body.
Chen Dong’s words were like a heavy hammer, hitting her heart strings hard.
In an instant, love was in the air, and her intentions were in turmoil.
Ye Linglong slowly turned her head.
After receiving an answer, Chen Dong closed his eyes and a kiss fell.
Lips met lips.
Time seemed to freeze.
Ye Linglong’s closed eyes, her eyelashes trembled lightly.
Her body was even trembling incessantly, and she was on fire.
Feeling the tenderness between her lips, Ye Linglong’s entire mind went blank.
This scene, came too fast, so fast that Ye Yuanqiu, who was close at hand, was too late to stop it.
Looking at Chen Dong and Ye Linglong who were inseparable from each other in a kiss, Ye Yuanqiu’s jealousy was splitting and his eyes were round with rage.
Gu Qingying, who was running towards the Shanhe Club, stopped abruptly.
In her sight, Chen Dong and Ye Linglong’s kiss was like a bolt from the blue, instantly blasting all her thoughts and elation into thin air.
Gu Qingying was frozen, standing motionless in place.
Under the scorching sun.
She could not feel the slightest warmth, as if her entire being had fallen into a cave of ice.
The sky …… was dark!
She knew Ye Linglong’s, let her and Chen Dong separated because of misunderstanding, she could never forget Ye Linglong’s face that even she felt eclipsed.
Just …… this scene in front of her ……
“Young lady, you can’t go any further.”
Long Lao panted as he ran to Gu Qingying’s side and grabbed her arm.
At this point, it had already surpa*sed the crowd of onlookers by a lot and was already conspicuous enough.
If one really rushed over, the danger …… would be too great!
“Elder Long, didn’t you say that it was a misunderstanding?”
Gu Qingying looked at Elder Long ruefully, tears silently flowing down from the corners of her eyes, “Is this …… a misunderstanding?”
Long Lao’s body shook, unsure of what to do.
He was so preoccupied with chasing after Qing Ying that he did not notice what was happening in front of the Mountain River a*sociation.
At this moment, when he heard Gu Qingying’s words, he only slowly raised his head to look.
Only, this glance caused Elder Long’s pupils to instantly tighten to the extreme.
Young master, how had he really kissed this woman together?
“Misunderstanding, Young Madam, this is really a misunderstanding!”
Long Lao’s scalp tingled and he explained to Gu Qingying in a panic.
Gu Qingying forcefully wiped a handful of tears from the corner of her eyes and smiled decisively, “I’m really not stupid ……”
She directly shook off Long Lao’s hand, turned around brazenly, and ran towards the crowd.
“Young Madam ……”
Long Lao instantly became anxious and looked back at the scene in front of the Shanhe Guild Hall, stomping his foot indignantly, he turned around and ran.
In front of the Shanhe Guild Hall.
Chen Dong and Ye Linglong’s kiss seemed to be fixed.
Ye Yuanqiu’s jealousy was splitting, when he saw Elder Long and Gu Qingying leave.
He said in a deep voice, “It’s gone.”
Chen Dong looked at the crowd not far away and could no longer see Gu Qingying.
At once, his heart settled down.
As for Ye Linglong, her eyes were still tightly closed and her cheeks were flushed.
When her lips parted, for a split second, her delicate body trembled, her eyelashes trembled lightly, and she slowly opened her eyes.
In her eyes, there was some loss.
“Put me down, thank you.” Chen Dong said calmly.
Is it really …… just a show?
Ye Linglong obliterated her lips, her gaze drifting as she nodded her head.
After putting Chen Dong down, the group went straight back inside the Mountain River a*sociation.
Ye Yuanqiu let the Hong Society members leave.
Because of what had just happened, Ye Yuanqiu’s face was ironically blue, and his hands were even clenched into fists.
He was an ancestor of the Hong Society’s Yuanzi generation.
Ye Linglong was his only granddaughter and had been held in the palm of his hand since she was a child, the only jewel of the Hong Society.
Seeing with his own eyes that his precious granddaughter had humbled herself to such an extent, even if Ye Yuanqiu was calm and steady-hearted, he could hardly calm down.
“Grandpa, you should go back first, I’ll take Chen Dong to another residence.”
Ye Linglong suddenly said, before Yuan Yigang had already rearranged Chen Dong’s residence, which was in the courtyard next to Yuan Yigang’s.
Ye Yuanqiu wanted to say something, but finally sighed and turned around to leave.
Ye Linglong pushed her wheelchair in a lost manner and walked towards her new residence.
Chen Dong, on the other hand, sat silently in his wheelchair, his gaze deep and thoughtful.
Ye Linglong broke the calm.
“This kiss, don’t you think it’s desperate for her?”
She knew that Chen Dong had travelled all the way across the ocean to clear up the misunderstanding between him and her and wanted to get Gu Qingying’s forgiveness.
But the kiss he had just given her was clearly a “misunderstanding” in Gu Qingying’s mind.
“She’s lost weight.”
Chen Dong replied, his heart showing pain in his eyes.
Rubbing the tip of his nose, Chen Dong said to himself, “Her face is all thinner, she’s almost out of shape, she must not have eaten properly, this little fool, she doesn’t even know how to take care of the baby.”
Ye Linglong’s delicate body trembled, and in a flash her beautiful eyes were filled with tears, aggrieved to the extreme.
Her red lips mouthed, “Chen Dong, did you hear what I asked?”
Chen Dong smiled, his gaze determined.
“Instead of putting her and her family in danger of life and death, what does it matter if she misunderstands me and even parts ways with me?”
The words are soft.
However, they carried an indescribable determination.
When he was dying of despair, Chen Dong wanted to go back to Gu Qingying and the baby.
But now that he had calmed down and accepted the reality, he had to think about Gu Qingying and the baby.
“Death, it doesn’t matter, as long as she is well.” Chen Dong shook his head.
Ye Linglong, however, quietly, tears flowed down her face.
What about me?
Do I call this …… deserving?
She bit her red lips tightly to prevent herself from making a crying sound.
Even when her teeth cracked her lips and oozed blood, she didn’t let go.
That kiss, you pushed her away, but you made me muddy feet ah.
Subconsciously, Ye Linglong lowered her head and looked at Chen Dong with teary eyes.
But it was to see, Chen Dong quietly hands tightly earn thigh trousers, the back of the hands bruises protrude, faint trembling.
She looked stunned.
The resentment suddenly dissipated.
Her red lips lightly opened, “It will stand up, you will definitely be able to return to her side full of light, when the time comes, I will help you explain ah?”
“Mm, it will definitely happen.”
Chen Dong smiled faintly, his hands quietly loosened his trousers.
Back in the courtyard next door to Yuan Yigang.
Ye Linglong carefully made the bed and helped Chen Dong into bed before preparing to leave.
Just as she reached the door.
Behind her, Chen Dong’s voice suddenly sounded.
“Thank you for just now, I’m sorry to have wronged you.”
“Not at all? It’s the right thing to do.”
Ye Linglong turned around and smiled sweetly.
Then she left straight away.
Chen Dong sat on the bed, his expression stiffened.
Ye Linglong’s smile was like a sharp needle, stabbing him in the heart.
Chen Dong slapped himself fiercely.
What kind of should or shouldn’t there be?
“This is what I owe you …….”
Ye Linglong ran out of the room not too far before she could no longer suppress it.
Tears were streaming down her face and pears were streaming down her face.
She pushed open the door to her room and closed it before leaning on the back of it and sliding down to sit on the floor.
“Do you just keep thinking about her and never include me in your considerations?”
Cries echoed as Ye Linglong clutched her hair with both hands, woefully out of shape.
At this moment, there was no semblance of her former grace.
After crying for a long time, she sat down in front of the dressing table, lost in thought.
Looking at herself in the mirror, her hair was cloaked and her face was full of tears.
Ye Linglong smiled sadly: “Ye Linglong, when did you, for the sake of a man, would make such a mess of yourself?”
Knock knock knock ……
A knock sounded on the door.
Ye Linglong panicked and hurriedly wiped away her tears, forcing herself to pretend that nothing had happened.
The door opened.
Seeing Ye Yuanqiu at the door, Ye Linglong froze for a moment, “Grandpa, why did you come over?”
“My granddaughter has humbled herself to this extent, and I still can’t come?”
Ye Yuanqiu looked huffy, as if a lion with pent up anger, and slowly walked into the room.
Ye Linglong closed the door and smiled warmly, “It’s alright.”
Ye Yuanqiu turned around brazenly and threw a slap at Ye Linglong’s face.
“And it’s still alright? You silly girl, he used you as a gun, that scene at the entrance of the clubhouse just now, do you know what you are? You’re nothing but a tool!”
“I, Ye Yuanqiu, am at least an ancestral elder of the Hong Society, at least an existence that commands the party, when did I let my own granddaughter fall to such a state?”
“Since childhood, grandfather has spoiled you into the pearl of the Hong Society, raising your heart high, you can’t look at anyone, Linglong ah, how come when it comes to Chen Dong, you have humbled yourself to such an extent?”
A series of sulking words, like knives and swords.
Ye Linglong bit her lips tightly, her beautiful eyes flooded with tears.
Lowered her head.
Complainingly, she murmured, “I don’t know, I don’t know why I’ve become like this, but when I see him being uncomfortable, when I see him being upset, when I see him being terrified, I’ll be upset, uncomfortable and terrified along with him.”
Ye Yuanqiu was furious, fiercely clenched his teeth and raised his hand to strike again.
But looking at Ye Linglong not dodging or avoiding, his heart softened again.
Dropping his hand heavily, Ye Yuanqiu sat down on a chair and stared miserably at the ceiling, “Grandpa regrets, regrets that he should never have taken you to invite Chen Dong into the Hong Society in the first place.”
“The word love is too capable of sinking one’s feet in the mud, you silly girl, if you recite this word, there will be more suffering waiting for you in the future.”
Ye Linglong looked at her grandfather forlornly, she knew that he was heartbroken for her.
But she just couldn’t do it.
It was very indisputable, even she herself felt so.
There had never even been a time when Ye Linglong had thought she would be in this situation now.
She was the jewel of the Hong Society and one of the Red Sticks, and she had hoped that her beloved would one day descend from the sky to her side, clad in golden armour and treading on seven-coloured clouds, just like in film and television dramas.
But now, it was as humble as dust.
“Linglong, from today onwards, grandfather will replace someone to take care of Chen Dong, and you move away from this courtyard.” Ye Yuanqiu suddenly said.
Ye Linglong instantly panicked.
“Grandpa, didn’t you let me take care of Chen Dong before because you were worried that the next person wouldn’t be able to take care of Chen Dong and you were afraid that there would be a backbone in your heart?”
“But grandpa didn’t expect you to get stuck in the mud!”
Ye Yuanqiu said indignantly, “The candidate will be chosen properly by the Dragon Head and me, but you cannot see him again from today onwards.”
The voice was resounding and could not be refuted.
Ye Linglong was suddenly resolute, “Grandpa, I don’t agree, I will take care of him!”
Ye Yuanqiu instantly became so anxious that his old face turned red.
Ye Linglong wiped the tears from the corner of her eyes and said resolutely, “Grandpa, I just want to take care of him, I promise you that I won’t let myself sink any further, just simply take care.”
Ye Yuanqiu snorted, “Do you think grandpa has never eaten rice and noodles all these years and doesn’t know the world of human feelings? The word love, grandfather knows better than you!”
Ye Linglong clenched her hands together and smiled bitterly.
“I don’t care what grandpa thinks, I just want to take care of him, if grandpa won’t let me, then I’ll quit the Hong Society.”
Ye Yuanqiu slapped down on the table with a humongous slap, “You deadly girl, are you trying to P*ss grandpa off?”
“I really only have feelings for him alone.”
Ye Linglong said calmly, “Grandpa, do you know that I used to think that those who said that they liked him would think that he was glowing with light, but it was just poor talk about a jar of sour vinegar falling over, but now, I know that it was true.”
“I’m not going to get my feet in the mud again, and he knows he’s a family man.”
With a shrug, Ye Linglong said, “Just take good care of him, and when the dust settles and he leaves, he and I will be done with it.”
Ye Yuanqiu’s body trembled and his eyes glared angrily.
But when faced with Ye Linglong, he did not know how to retort.
He knew his granddaughter well, and his arrogant and stubborn personality sometimes meant that he would not listen to anyone’s opinion on a certain matter.
In the end.
Ye Yuanqiu fiercely clenched his teeth, stopped paying attention to Ye Linglong and left with giant strides.
Ye Linglong respectfully sent Ye Yuanqiu away.
After closing the door.
“If someone else were to take care of him, how would I feel at ease? What if he gets cold, starves him, and makes him sad?”
Ye Linglong’s gaze flickered as she smiled sadly, her right hand wiping the tears from the corners of her eyes, “Even if I am humble, how can I bear to watch him grieve?”
