C175 The Two of Them Made Up(2)
However, Lan Xuehan lowered her head and remained silent when she heard his questioning tone. Liuyun and Yi winked and quickly left, leaving the space for the two of them.
In an instant, only Dongfang Jin and Lan Xuehan were left in the courtyard. Lan Xuehan was silent and Dongfang Jin was also quietly waiting for her answer. A quiet atmosphere filled the air between the two of them. It was oppressive and silent!
After a long time, Dongfang Jin slowly walked in front of her. His eyes were as deep as the ocean. There were stormy waves inside. In the blink of an eye, it was calm again. He said in a low voice, "Lan Xuehan, why didn't you answer my question?"
Lan Xuehan was forced by him like this. The guilt and depression in her heart rose instantly. She raised her head to look at him and tried her best to ignore the feeling of his warm breath on her face. Looking at him, the corner of her mouth curled up, and then she said, "Dongfang Jin, what do you want me to say? Could it be that I can see you weakly lying on the bed and moving insincerely? Could it be that I can bear to watch the Four Kingdoms Banquet, where you are revered by all under the heavens, be so weak that you don't even have the strength to truss a chicken? Could it be that right now, I want you to preside over the overall situation, but I see that you are powerless and pathetic?"
After saying so much in one breath, it made Lan Xuehan's extremely weak body even more difficult to bear the burden. She suddenly felt dizzy and staggered.
When Dongfang Jin saw this, anxiety and heartache appeared in his eyes. He instantly lifted her soft body horizontally and walked into the room. He placed her by the bed and sat her down. Then, he stretched out his hand and pulled her into his embrace. His delicate chin rested on her shoulder.
His tone carried a sour friendship. "Lan Xuehan, do you know that when I woke up and knew all of this, my entire heart felt as if it had been dismembered. It was so painful that I wished I could dig it out!"
It seemed like he was trying to ease his emotions, but at the same time, it seemed like his emotions were leaking even more. He then said, "I don't ask for anything else. I hope you can stay by my side. Don't suffer any harm. However, ever since you entered the capital, you've been seriously injured twice. Both times because of me. Lan Xuehan, do you know? I'm obviously self-proclaimed to be a strategist, smart enough to win a god, but why can't I protect you?"
The last few words were filled with self-blame and heartache. Lan Xuehan felt suffocated when she heard it! She had never blamed him, ever since she knew her feelings. She had been hesitant and confused before, but she had never regretted it!
"Dongfang Jin, I know what you mean. However, trust me, you can't be blamed for all of this. Although you are powerful, there are still some things that are difficult to plan. Furthermore, I am not the kind of woman who only knows how to hide behind you. If that's the case, even I would look down on myself!" Lan Xuehan lightly patted Dongfang Jin's back and said with a warm tone.
" I know, I know your pride. But, Lan Xuehan, even if I knew, I still couldn't help but want to clear the sky for you. These three days were torture to me, the torture of my body and heart. Lan Xuehan, promise me that you won't get hurt again in the future. Alright? Promise me! "
Hearing his almost pleading tone, Lan Xuehan immediately felt the corners of her eyes turn sour. Her throat tightened. Dongfang Jin, this man that everyone worshiped, had an unyielding and unyielding pride. Yet, he had bowed his head to her twice! How could she not love this kind of him?
Exiting his embrace, Lan Xuehan saw the exhaustion in his eyes and gently kissed him. Then, with a smile in her eyes, she nodded and replied, "Okay!"
Dongfang Jin was stunned by the first time she took the initiative to be intimate with him. When he heard her say okay, the depression in his heart that he had for many days instantly dissipated.
However, he heard Lan Xuehan say again, "Dongfang Jin, then you also have to promise me that you will give me a chance to stand shoulder to shoulder with you. Don't treat me as a useless young lady, okay?"
Dongfang Jin looked at her determined face, and there was a serious look in her eyes. She lowered her eyes, covering the trace of surprise in her eyes.
He knew that she was not inferior to him in terms of means and talent, but the more magnificent she was, the more she dominated the world. It would be easier for her to attract other people's attention. At that time, her identity as a goddess would not be able to be concealed. If that was the case, the eyes of the four kingdoms would all be on her. Even if she couldn't get it, she wouldn't let the thoughts of the other kingdoms bring her endless assassinations. How could he allow her to be pushed to such a dangerous place?
However, she was Lan Xuehan, the peerless girl who could flip the world with her bare hands in Skysnow Mountain, the stubborn girl who could not control the heavens with my life. Should he tell her the truth?
This thought flashed across Dongfang Jin's mind and was immediately rejected by him. He knew that his master had told her the truth back then, but she was still unwilling to be involved in the conflicts of the world all these years. This meant that she hoped to have a peaceful life. If he told her about the pros and cons now... Wouldn't that be going against her many years of wishes?
However, Dongfang Jin knew that when their fates were intertwined, the ancient chapter was destined to be a fate that no one could escape!
Seeing that Dongfang Jin thought for a long time without saying anything, Lan Xuehan pursed her lips and the excitement in her heart dissipated a little.
"Okay, I promise you." This sentence undoubtedly ignited Lan Xuehan's smile again. She raised an extremely brilliant smile which made Dongfang Jin's eyes blur in an instant.
He promised her, but there were some things that he had to take responsibility for!
Dongfang Jin looked at her smiling face and his eyes darkened slightly. Then, his Adam's apple moved seductively. His slender fingers passed through her black hair and slowly kissed her tender lips!
