Chapter 1184: Love Kills
She hated him.
Leng Hao curled his lips. “You can just hate me, but Xiaotao, forget about me.”
He wanted her to forget about him!
Ye Xiaotao clenched her fists and bit down hard on her lips. She didn’t want to cry because he had humiliated her enough. She wanted to preserve some dignity for herself.
“Forget about me because I will forget about you too. In the future, I will marry a good girl and have another son. It doesn’t matter if I have a few children. I can afford it. In the future, I will make you disappear from my mind completely. I will live a very good life.”
“Lastly, Xiao Tao, I will be back in Hong Kong today. I will not have the chance to see you again in the future. I don’t want to see you again. Here, I wish you and Gong Yi a happy newlywed and always be together till your old time.”
Leng Hao hung up the phone.
Ye Xiaotao heard the busy tone from the other end of the line. A “PA” sound could be heard, she threw her phone against the wall.
The phone shattered.
The tears in her eyes could not be held back anymore. She hugged her knees and cried loudly. It was as if a knife was slicing her heart. It hurt so much.
It hurt so much that her entire world was destroyed.
Four years ago, he did not return from the fire. Four years later, he abandoned her again.
She had made her plans to remarry him. She wanted to talk to him properly. However, she could not put down her pride. She needed him to coax her.
She wanted to give him a lesson. She wanted him to learn from his past experiences and treat her well in the future.
But, he wouldn’t.
He said he would forget her, he said he would marry another girl, he said he would have children with someone else, he even said he would never see her again, he even said he wished her and Gong Yi to be happy forever…
Why did he hurt her like this as every word he said stabbed her heart?
This b*stard, she hated him!
The phone in Leng Hao’s hand slid down slowly. His face was pale and he remained silent.
Achen’s heart was painful. “President, why did you say that? Every word you say goes against your heart. She will hate you. She will marry Gong Yi and forget about you.”
“I just told the truth…”
“I wish her and Gong Yi a happy marriage and grow old together. I don’t have the care and love that I can give her. Gong Yi will do it for me.”
Leng Hao looked at the blue sky outside the window, “Maybe she will hate me for a few days. It doesn’t matter. I’ll bear it. It’s fine if she forgets me. Let me bear the pain from four years ago and Xiao Xiao Tao’s pain alone. I hope she can get over it. Her future will be beautiful, but…”
“But there are a lot of things I haven’t told her.” Leng Hao’s handsome and cold face revealed a tender expression, ”
In that room in Hong Kong, I didn’t decorate the things for Bai Lingyun. The size-37 shoes were not for Bai Lingyun. I don’t know how old Bai Lingyun is either. The first time I bought shoes for a woman, were the crystal shoes for her. The shop assistant said that women usually wear size-37 shoes. I believed her.”
“It’s the first time I bought roses for her, the first time I wanted to watch a movie with her seriously. The first time I was jealous of her with that senior. The first time… I wanted to be old with her slowly like this. Even if reality distorts my feelings, time can not take away my love.”
“Everyone says that men are eventually slow-witted and need a woman to teach them how to fall in love. Unfortunately, she wasn’t the first person I met. Bai Lingyun wasn’t the one I loved after all. The one I loved left me before I knew how to fall in love. When I wanted to fall in love with her, she was gone.”
“Over the past four years, my heart has been in a lot of pain, the pain was not stopped for a single second. It’s very strange. I’ve waited for Bai Lingyun for ten years, but I’ve never felt any pain. After being together with her for more than half a year, it feels like… I’ve been in pain for my entire life.”
“It’s okay. I enjoyed this pain. There are so many people in this world who was putting up. If I hadn’t met her, I would have put up with someone as well. I’m thankful that she’s in my life because she taught me what love is, and she’s also the one who gave me so much warmth. It’s enough for me to remember for the rest of my life.”
“But it’s a regret. I often wonder what would have happened if Xiao Xiaotao was still around. He should have grown so tall,” Leng Hao gestured in the air, “He should be called Daddy and Mommy now. When it’s Valentine’s Day, he will give his Daddy an idea. When Daddy is stupid enough to make mommy angry, he would be making mommy laugh…”
“Xiao Xiaotao, I love him. I love his mommy even more. These two are my entire life. Now, I’ve lost them with my own hands.”
“That’s good too. One’s lifetime could be in happiness and perfection, or it could be being alone as well. Who said that my life doesn’t belong to the latter? Achen, don’t you think so?”
Leng Hao looked at Achen and smiled.
Achen’s face was already covered in tears.
Ye Xiaotao locked herself in the room for half a month. Father Ye and Auntie Miao were so worried that they were not eating well.
One day, the door to her room suddenly opened and Ye Xiaotao walked out.
She lost a lot of weight, and her chin was even smaller. Most importantly, the girl who used to smile was now indifferent. She lost her smile.
If two people were in love and killed each other to this extent, why would they meet in the first place?
Father Ye was the happiest person. No matter what, his daughter had come back to life.
That night, Father Gong and Gong Yi came, and the Ye family prepared a grand dinner.
Ye Xiaotao brushed past everyone’s smiles. They were so careful to take care of her emotions and not mentioning the past.
As a child, she was unfilial.
As for what happened to the elder brother, in the end, she didn’t ask. Since Daddy was back, he must have dealt with the aftermath.
At the dining table, she ate very little and had no appetite. At the end of the meal, there was ice cream. She picked up a small spoon and took a bite.
She bit something hard in her mouth. When she spat it out, she saw that it was a ring.
The lights in the villa were all off. Red candles were burning on the windowsill. Her loved ones were beside her. Gong Yi knelt on one knee.
“Xiaotao, let’s get married. I’ve waited for this moment for twenty years. In the future, I will dote on you. I will dote on you and love you. I will make you the happiest woman in the world. Xiaotao, marry me.”
Ye Xiaotao looked at Gong Yi and didn’t say anything.
“Xiao Tao,” Auntie Miao hugged her shoulders, “The most indispensable thing for a woman in this world is a man who loves her. Let go of yourself and let yourself be happy.”
Ye Xiaotao looked at Father Ye and Father Gong. They looked at her with expectation.
“Gong Yi, I may not be able to fall in love with you in this lifetime. You can find a better girl than me.”
She was covered in bruises.
Gong Yi held her cold little hand in his palm. “It’s okay. I only love you. Everyone has a different definition of happiness. My happiness is that you can be by my side.”
Ye Xiaotao curled the corners of her mouth. Her smile was cool as she slowly extended her ring finger.
“Okay.” She nodded lightly.
