Chapter 196: Lu Liangwei, You Don’t Mean What You Say
Lu Liangwei broke away from her grip and said coolly, “How do you want me to help you, and why should I?”
Lin Qingyuan bit her lip and said in frustration, “I’ve already said that what happened in the past was my fault. Can you just forget about it?”
“Why should I forget?” The corner of Lu Liangwei’s mouth twitched in bewilderment.
In the past, Lin Qingyuan would say some very nasty things every time she met the original host. Last time at the palace banquet, this woman came up and started jeering at her right off the bat. How amnesiac would she have to be to forget about that incident so quickly?
Besides, what made Lin Qingyuan think she could make such a demand?
Lin Qingyuan also seemed to realize that her words were inappropriate. Lowering her eyes, she said sadly, “I really have no other way. My parents won’t believe me at all and insist on marrying me off to Chen Xuping, but I don’t want to. He already tried to kill me, and the person he loves is Lu Yunshuang. He’s a walking fire pit. I’d be crazy to jump inside…”
Lu Liangwei raised her eyebrows at her words. Sure enough, she had guessed right; Chen Xuping no longer intended to kill Lin Qingyuan. Instead, he wanted to marry her and keep her on a tight leash.
If that were the case, how would Chen Xuping deal with her, Lu Liangwei?
After all, Lin Qingyuan was with her that day. He must have known that Lin Qingyuan had told her everything.
Lu Liangwei frowned. Chen Xuping and Lu Yunshuang would definitely not spare her if they had their say.
The best way to deal with her was probably to kill her.
Lu Liangwei clenched her fists at that thought. When she raised her head again, her expression was still as calm as ever. “So what? I can’t help you.”
Lin Qingyuan gritted her teeth, suddenly sneering, “Lu Liangwei, you don’t mean what you say.”
“Huh?” Instead of getting angry, Lu Liangwei laughed. “You have some nerve to ask me for help with such an attitude.”
Lin Qingyuan stared into her eyes, then suddenly smiled. “Lu Liangwei, don’t sound so cold-blooded. If you really didn’t want to help me, you wouldn’t have come here with me at all.”
Lu Liangwei pursed her lips and sat down at the stone table beside her. Resting her chin in her palm, she said, “Fine, stop acting so pitiful. How exactly do you want me to help you?”
Lin Qingyuan’s face relaxed when she heard this. She walked over quickly and sat down opposite her.
“I’m now being kept at home by my parents every day, and I can’t even set foot outside the door. The wedding is on the tenth of this month. I don’t want to sit around and wait for my doom. Since Chen Xuping tried to kill me, I won’t let him live in peace either. Also, I suspect that Lu Yunshuang is involved in this matter. I’m going to destroy that filthy couple’s reputation through and through,” Lin Qingyuan snarled viciously.
During this period, despite all the negative things she said about Chen Xuping, her parents refused to believe her. They even thought that she was throwing a tantrum, which left her at a loss for what to do.
It was all thanks to Chen Xuping.
That shameless man would suck up to her parents and woo them whenever he could. On top of that, both families had been well acquainted for several generations. Her parents had no doubt about his character and even wholeheartedly believed that she was fortunate to marry Chen Xuping.
How could she not feel bitter?
After finally getting the opportunity to enter the palace today, she had tagged along to try her luck. As she had hoped, Lu Liangwei was present.
Now that she thought about it, it was laughable that the person she used to despise had now become her last beacon of hope.
Lin Qingyuan’s heart was full of mixed feelings.
After listening to her, Lu Liangwei said calmly, “So, what do you want to do?”
