Chapter 224.4: Thank You For Being Able to Love Him So Much
“Mo Jing Yu! You must remember this well! The Barbarian Tribe belongs to you and it was never my obligation to help you! But as I saw you to be someone as close as a brother is to me, I did not hesitate in the slightest to help you protect the things that belong to you! And now, just because of one woman, you are choosing to deny all that I have done for you for so many years without asking for anything in return!”
When the man spoke about that, Mo Jing Yu could do nothing but to remain silent.
That’s right. All these years, if not for Yan Shu, the Barbarian Tribe might have been thrown into endless upheaval, to become a pan of scattered sand. He was the last person in the world who had any right to admonish Yan Shu.
But, he really did not want his closest friend who was as close to him as a brother to misunderstand the woman he loved so much, as he would only end up being caught in between the two of them.
The atmosphere had suddenly turned frighteningly oppressive.
Qing Lan Fei suddenly stretched her hand out to unclasp the hand tightly holding onto her waist as she looked into the man’s surprised eyes. She then smiled reassuringly at him and went on to stand up from her chair.
Looking up towards the seat on the pedestal at Yan Shu sitting there stony faced, Qing Lan Fei suddenly smiled and then bent her body at the waist to bow deeply before him.
The woman’s action caused Mo Jing Yu to stare as his eyes widened. “Fei Er, what are you trying to do?”
Although he knew he was greatly indebted to Yan Shu, and that he was in the wrong here, he could not possibly allow Fei Er to do something like this for his sake. They had been close as brothers for many years and the two men knew each other too well. Some things did not need to be spelt out too clearly between them and both of them would know it in their hearts.
So what was Fei Er trying to accomplish by doing that?
Yan Shu was also taken aback for a moment, like he had not expected that proud woman to be capable of such an action. But he quickly reverted back to his stony facade. Hmph, see what kind of a trick you are trying to pull.
Qing Lan Fei quickly straightened herself after that deep bow, the corners of her lips curved up with a gentle smile as she then said softly: “Thank you. For Jing Yu to have someone who truly and sincerely cares for him, he should be honoured.”
Yan Shu replied in an indifferent voice that was neither hot or cold. “He is a brother to me, it is only right that I treat him good. I do not need you to tell me that.”
Those words could be said to be rude and impolite, and Mo Jing Yu immediately felt his anger rise in him when he heard that. What right did he have to say that to Fei Er? He could never bear to say a single harsh word to Fei Er himself.
Qing Lan Fei held down Mo Jing Yu who was about to flare up and continued on to say: “I do not know why you hold such strong enmity towards me. But I would like to say that I am with Jing Yu only because the two of us are in love, and for no other reason. I only want us to be happy. I do not really care whether people around us would give us their blessings or acknowledgement, and I believe it is the same for Jing Yu as well.”
She saw Yan Shu’s face turn an uglier shade as expected and she went on to say softly: “But it is different in your case. You are someone Jing Yu sees to be as close as a brother to him and that means you’re his kin. The one thing he wishes most from you is your acknowledgment of us here.”
