Chapter 199: I Am A Good Person
“Yeah.” Zhong Nuannuan nodded.
Leng Jinpeng swallowed the pill cooperatively.
“Let us begin the acupuncture now.”
“Alright. What should I do?”
“Uncle Leng, you just have to lie on the sofa. Leave the rest to me.”
Leng Jinpeng walked to the sofa slowly and sat down. Suddenly, he asked, “You’re the one who saved that kid, Lil Rui yesterday, right?”
Zhong Nuannuan’s body froze from the unexpected question.
Leng Jinpeng was sure that his guess was correct from her reaction.
“Thank you for saving Lil Rui.”
Zhong Nuannuan could not help but rub her nose. She felt slightly miserable.
It was all Leng Qirui, the blabbermouth’s, fault.
Leng Jinpeng could read Zhong Nuannuan’s thoughts, so he immediately tried to absolve his son of any guilt. “Lil Rui is not the one who told me.”
Zhong Nuannuan raised her eyebrow.
“Lil Rui’s straightforward. He could not keep a secret. When he told me about his savior, the glimmer in his eyes was the same as when he was talking about you. That’s how I knew it was you.”
The older, the wiser, indeed.
When Leng Jinpeng saw that Zhong Nuannuan was not speaking, he asked, “Does Chi Yang know your secret?”
“I never have the chance to tell him.”
Leng Jinpeng nodded. “Everyone has their own secret. Uncle Leng will definitely help you keep your secret. Lil Rui is not a blabbermouth, so you don’t have to worry. However, as your senior, I hope that when it comes to Chi Yang, you can grow to trust each other since you’re already engaged.
“Chi Yang was not someone who’s easily touched, but if he’s emotionally affected by something, the effects will last forever. It’s been so long, yet you’re the only one who’s ever been able to affect him. I really hope that you two can be together forever.”
Zhong Nuannuan understood what Leng Jinpeng meant.
How was it possible that a country bumpkin from the farming district can be a medical expert and also know how to fight so well?
However, her marriage report had already been approved and they passed their political investigation. Even the military was not able to find anything wrong with her identity, it was just able to conclude that she had an extraordinary character.
Therefore, even though on the surface it looked like Leng Jinpeng was telling her how difficult it was for Chi Yang, in reality, he was actually making insinuations. If she did not have any ulterior motives, then he would help her keep the secret. However, if she had something else in mind, she would never be able to gain the commander-in-chief’s approval even if their marriage report was approved.
Zhong Nuannuan was silent for a while. Then, she promised sincerely, “Uncle Leng, don’t worry. I really like Chi Yang. I don’t have any other intentions in doing this. Also, I’ll definitely not hurt him.
“Since I’ve decided to be with him, I don’t ever plan to leave him. My identity is not as complex and dangerous as you imagine. I just had some fortuitous meetings when I was young.”
If she could not use her farming district identity anymore, she still had one more shocking identity in her pocket.
No one in the world knew about her true identity aside from the half-dead King and “Viper” who would appear six years later and killed her and Chi Yang after being instructed to do so by King. Moreover, even if they knew, she already destroyed all information about her. As a result, she was not afraid of them.
In addition to this, she was confident that she could make King and Viper vanish from the face of the earth in six years’ time and avoid the calamity entirely.
Leng Jinpeng looked at Zhong Nuannuan’s clear eyes and let out a sigh. “That’s good. I believe Chi Yang’s eyes too.”
