Chapter 16 – This is a big disaster…
Xing Zhongwan felt that he had to clear this up with Qi Yun. This person had a deep misunderstanding and he wants to marry me, it’s worth mentioning this to him!
Qi Yun didn’t think so in his heart. Seeing that Xing Zhongwan didn’t respond, he felt a little flustered.
“Is it because I can’t see and my legs can’t move, that it would be troublesome to take care of me, I…”
Qi Yun’s next words suddenly stopped, even he himself didn’t know how to ask others to stay with a body like his own.
Xing Zhongwan’s got a headache. This was not due to his health at all, it’s the gender that’s the problem, brother. This blunder really became a big mistake. He used to think it was unnecessary to not say it. Now, if he doesn’t say it, Xing Zhongwan will be suspected of deceiving his feelings. Of course, it can’t be for real that Qi Yun actually likes Wanwan.
As he was thinking about it, the old housekeeper came. “Miss Xing, someone is looking for you.”
Xing Zhongwan squinted. Someone came to look for him?
It was the secretary by Xing Zhengping’s side. A forty-year-old man who looked a little wretched. Of course he was not really wretched, it was just Xing Zhongwan that disliked the Xing family and didn’t have any good impression of them.
“Young master, I came here to bring a message for young master.” The visitor stood respectfully in front of Xing Zhongwan and Xing Zhongwan snorted coldly, “Young master, I remember that I was removed from the Xing’s family tree a long time ago. Where did the ‘young master’ come from?” The man smiled, “No matter what, the blood relationship between you and the master is real.”
Xing Zhongwan was getting a little impatient, “Just get straight to the point. No more idle chit-chat.”
“Yes,” Xing Zhongwan’s attitude did not irritate the man standing in front of him,
“Young Master, the master said to please continue living here as Miss Xing.”
Xing Zhongwan couldn’t help but laugh out loud, “what kind of ploy is my old father making now?”
“Master asked me to bring you this message. No matter what the Qi family asks, please cooperate. Your mother will be moved into the family grave soon.”
Xing Zhongwan really wanted to spit at him. Was he such an easy f/cking target! The Qi family left him to die, so will Xing Zhongwan also cooperate with them and die together as well?
If Xing Zhengping wasn’t the head of the Xing family of this generation, it would’ve been mandatory for his mother to be moved to the family grave. Xing Zhongwan already got screwed over by him before, but now he was still here waiting to get more pissed off.
Forcing himself to calm down, Xing Zhongwan walked to the window and took a deep breath, quickly thinking about the powerful connections he held in his mind.
The regret his mother held in her eyes before her death would never be forgotten by Xing Zhongwan for all eternity. Of course, with his current ability, he could force Xing Zhengping to give up, but this was not what his mother wanted. His mother grew up in Xing’s family and had a deep affection for his father’s side of the family. He can’t be impulsive.
Xing Zhengping has suddenly asked someone to come tell him off, so that means someone must’ve said something to him. Xing Zhongwan glanced at the old housekeeper who was standing not far away, who was sneering from the corners of her mouth. This little snitch finally came out.
It seems that according to the current situation, he could only help Qi Yun get better as soon as possible. He can’t predict the extent to which Qi Yun will recover, but Qi Yun must also have his own plan. This was the only way he could get himself out of this as soon as possible!
Xing Zhongwan went back to face the man. “Go on and tell him, I will do as he says, but he must also keep his promise! If he dares to lie to me, then I won’t mind fighting to the death!”
When Xing Zhongwas went downstairs, he took a look at the old housekeeper. The old lady looked at him with a wry smile. Xing Zhongwan walked to her and looked at her, “The old lady isn’t too shabby. Knowing to use Missus Qi to press me. It seems we can’t keep our truce anymore, just wait and see!”
Xing Zhongwan snorted and went upstairs. The old housekeeper looked back at his back, with a little indifference in her eyes. You are just an illegitimate child who can’t even get a say in this. What kind of ruckus can you make? Just keep quiet and deal with it!
Xing Zhongwan was called away and he didn’t know what was happening. The person hasn’t returned yet so Qi Yun was a little anxious. The bedroom door opened and Xing Zhongwan came in, sitting on the chair beside Qi Yun’s bed. He was a little angry but he couldn’t let it out, so he could only keep it inside.
“Who is it? The Xing family?”
Qi Yun felt that Xing Zhongwan was breathing a little heavier than usual. Qi Yun’s heart sank and suddenly there was a murderous intent in his heart that he hadn’t had for a long time now.
“Did the Xing family threaten you with your mother? Did my mother do it?”
Xing Zhongwan took a deep breath. He didn’t want to answer Qi Yun’s question.
“Your injuries are almost healed. I will draw a bath for you. The bathtub has been changed by the workers. I will carry you on my back.”
Xing Zhongwan went to lift Qi Yun’s quilt but Qi Yun took his hand. “Wanwan, don’t hide things from me.”
Xing Zhongwan’s heart sank. It’s useless even if you know it because you can’t solve it. You can’t even help yourself now. I’ll be grateful if you just get better.
“I’m really fine, you don’t need to worry.”
In the bathroom, Xing Zhongwan filled in the hot water and placed Qi Yun in carefully. There were handles on both sides that Qi Yun could hold onto and not slip off. Xing Zhongwan held the bath sponge, carefully wiping Qi Yun’s scrawny back.
Qi Yun felt that Xing Zhongwan was in a bad mood. She had a lot of things on her mind, but she didn’t want to tell Qi Yun that because he was powerless. Thinking about it from a different standpoint, even if he knew it, he couldn’t do anything for her at this point in time. Qi Yun felt a little annoyed.
“You haven’t taken a bath in a long time, are you happy?” Xing Zhongwan’s voice came back but there were no emotions to be heard in that voice. The strawberry-flavored shower gel was very sweet and it made pink bubbles appear all over his body.
Xing Zhongwan was definitely looking for something to say, the atmosphere was too awkward and needed to be eased up… Qi Yun did not answer him and the atmosphere became even more awkward…
Xing Zhongwan decided to shut up.
“When I was young, my grandma washed me like this.” Qi Yun suddenly frightened Xing Zhongwan and he threw out the bath sponge in his hand. He picked it back up in anguish. Brother, can you not surprise others when you speak?
But Madam Qi’s gentle face flashed in his mind.
“Your grandma must’ve loved you very much.”
Qi Yun’s body paused, and the corners of his mouth curved up. Xing Zhongwan felt that he wanted to laugh, but he couldn’t laugh.
“Grandma was the only person in the Qi family who treated me sincerely. Someone of her temperament shouldn’t have married into the Qi family. How many women my grandfather has outside is well known, and he may not even remember how many grandsons he has. He doesn’t like my grandma. He didn’t even like my father. After I was born, my grandma raised me personally, and she’s already seen through my mother’s selfish heart a long time ago.”
The matter between Madam Qi and Qi Zongcheng, Xing Zhongwan also knew about some of it, but only the parts that everyone else knew too.
“You should also know what the outsiders say about me. That I’m cold-blooded and ruthless, that after the passing of my grandmother who raised me, I only walked away without shedding a tear.”
Qi Yun’s voice was hollow and emotionless, as if he was talking about someone else, but Xing Zhongwan heard something different.
“That person already died. Crying is for the living to see, and the real sadness will always remain in the heart.”
Xing Zhongwan’s words weren’t just empty. It came from the same place after one lost their close relative. Xing Zhongwan understood this feeling.
Qi Yun didn’t expect Xing Zhongwan to say this, his originally closed heart suddenly opened up. Wanwan understood him.
Qi Yun grabbed Xing Zhongwan’s soapy hand, “I won’t be like my grandfather. There’ll only be one person in my life, Wanwan. It’s you, and it can only be you.”
Xing Zhongwan was stunned. Qi Yun, has being sick made you stupid? Your character is different from before. What should I do? Just like a hedgehog taking off his spikes and letting others squish and knead it into a ball, making difficult words harder to speak. Xing Zhongwan feels that this is a big disaster…
A/N: Heyo! I’m backk with another chapterrrr~
BTW, if you like dragons and are looking for something to read with Dragons and tons of smut, do check out my original series “This Sly Dragon’s Getting a Little Too Close For Comfort“. It’s a story of a ordinary guy who gets transmigrated into a body of a Herma, a race of people with both- ahem “parts” down below. However, because he was born a male, the first in many years, he was cast out of his home. Don’t worry though, this story is soup for the soul and diickk as there are more fluffy moments to come when he accidentally picks up the egg of the legendary demon lord that’s supposed to destroy the magic of the world he’s transmigrated into. The story includes many moments of the MC taking care of the baby dragon aka probably his future husband as well as his adventures in this strange world, as he uncovers the true reason he was sent here!1!1!
