Ling Chens Heart
Translator: Mr Voltaire
Meng Xin, I Meng Xins final sentence sent Ling Chens mind into complete chaos.
Yun Meng Xin closed her teary eyes as she said, I thought that I would never be able to say those words because you had Shui Ruo and now have Dia Wu. My best sisters Qi Qi and Su Su are infatuated with you, and I could not allow myself to make you choose between us moreover, Ive received too much help and grace from you, and I didnt have the courage or the right to ask for you to feel the same way about me. Its just that if I didnt say it I might not have had a chance to anymore
Meng Xin Ling Chen gently said her name, not sure what to say.
Ling Chen Yun Meng Xin airily said his real name. Did you know, from since I was little, Ive never liked a man before. Men who were excellent in other peoples eyes were unable to move my heart at all. I thought that my heart was simply too cold and that it would never be moved until I met you
Did you know that your existence is like an irresistible disaster to any girl who comes near you your strength, decisiveness, domineering attitude, self-confidence, and cruelty to enemies but warmth and care towards those who youre close to as well as the sense of peace and security when being with you and the fact that you would die for Shui Ruo all of these have a fatal attraction to any girl, making it impossible for those close to you to escape back then, I was sighing about how Qi Qi and Su Su both liked you and how you had Shui Ruo, but I had also fallen in love with you
Its just that despite being such a brave person, I didnt have the courage to show the real me. When I encounter things Im afraid of, Im actually not brave at all Qi Qi and Su Su are much braver than me.
Meng Xin Ling Chen lightly held Yun Meng Xins hand, looking into her eyes. I feel the same way towards you as you feel towards me. If Ive always been attracting you, then you have also been attracting me much more its just that I had even less courage than you. The image in my heart of you has always been proud, noble, elegant, pure, and beautiful like an otherworldly goddess. If I was still single when I met you, I would have given my all to chase after you, but I had Shui Ruo, Dia Wu, as well as the promises I made to Su Su and Qi Qi I thought that this sort of fickleness would be incredibly despicable and would lead to tainting your purity if I was with you
Yun Meng Xins eyes quivered, becoming more resplendent. Is this true is this true
Ling Chen vigorously nodded. Of course its true. Meng Xin, you should know just how charming you are. Otherwise, you wouldnt have worn a veil all these years. Your looks and aura cause me to feel intoxicated, and your intelligence and empathy are things I greatly respect as well. After knowing you for so long, how could I not have feelings towards you?
Yun Meng Xins lips slightly moved, and she gently smiled, looking incredibly content. She looked at Ling Chen hazily as she said in a dreamy, soft voice, So the happiness that I wanted was so close to me the whole time I just didnt have the courage to take it with my own hands if I had been just a bit more brave just a bit even if today still came I wouldnt have any regrets
After speaking, Yun Meng Xins unfocused eyes slowly closed, and her body, which had been lying in Ling Chens warm embrace, fell back to the bed.
Meng Xin Meng Xin!!
Yun Meng Xin did not reply she silently lay there in a deep sleep, looking like a sleeping princess from a fairy tale who was waiting for her prince to awaken her with a kiss. Though her face and lips were incredibly pale, she still looked incredibly beautiful, like a cold goddess. Her simple white dress looked incredibly elegant on her, and it was even more beautiful than those exquisite and fancy dresses. In fact, it could be said that it was she who made this dress look beautiful, not the other way around.
Without realising it, Ling Chens eyes had become damp, but he raised his head, forcing the watery feeling back.
Meng Xin, you said that you regretted it, and I also regret it. When I lost Ruo Ruo, I hated myself for devoting so much time to taking revenge on the Long family and not spending it with Ruo Ruo. Now, I regret that I hadnt told you about my feelings earlier if both of us had taken this step, we wouldnt have so much pain and regret at the very least
Why did he have to only realise and regret once he lost something
Big brother Ling Tian
A mosquito-like voice sounded in Ling Chens ear. He hurriedly looked behind himself and stumbled over to SuEr as he called out, Su Su!
SuEr was still sleeping, and she was in a deeper sleep than Yun Meng Xin. Just then, she had only called out to him while sleeping. While dreaming, she had not called for her father, aunty, or uncle but him.
And yet, he could not save SuEr, nor could he save Yun Meng Xin.
Ling Chen felt as if all of his strength had left his body, and he once again sat on the floor, looking down in despair. This whole time, he had known that he was a monster that could put everything beneath him. He had the strength to look down on everything beneath the heavens, and as such, he had always been proud and arrogant. However, at this moment, he felt completely useless a trash who could only watch as the people around him walked towards death.
The door opened, and a pair of slow and heavy footsteps walked towards Ling Chen. With Ling Chens senses, a blade of grass tens of metres away could not escape his senses, and yet he did not realise that this person had walked right up to him and gently hugged him.
Ling Chen raised his head and saw Xuanyuan Dia Wus eyes, which were filled with heartache and comforting. He leaned his head against her chest and said dispiritedly, Dia Wu, what should I do what should I do
Xuanyuan Dia Wu did not know how to reply, and she only lightly sighed. After a while, she softly said, No matter what happens, Ill be by your side forever.
After lightly pushing Xuanyuan Dia Wu away, Ling Chen stood up. Dia Wu, you should go rest. Its too dangerous here, and if youre infected as well
I know; I just wanted to come see you. Ill leave immediately. Stay here and keep them company. Even if theyre asleep, theyll still be very happy. Xuanyuan Dia Wu did not insist on staying. Although her body was quite strong, that didnt mean she was immune to the Isrock Disease like Ling Chen and the Reapers. Seeing how much sorrow and grief Ling Chen felt for Yun Meng Xin and SuEr, she did not feel even a hint of jealousy, only heartache.
Tian Tian and Sha Sha are both very worried about you and refuse to sleep. After saying these words, Xuanyuan Dia Wu anxiously looked at Ling Chen for a while before softly leaving.
Not too long after, Ling Chen opened the door and walked out. The fresh air outside did not refresh his sinking heart at all. He felt as if there were a massive mountain weighing down on his heart, and it was to the point that he almost couldnt breathe.
Ling Chen silently looked up at the starry sky and gave a long sigh. After taking a few steps forwards, he saw a small figure next to the man-made lake.
Sha Sha why arent you asleep yet? Ling Chen walked over as he wondered why she was here all alone wasnt Dia Wu, Yao Ying, and the others watching over her? Why wasnt Tian Tian with her?
Hearing Ling Chens voice, Shadissika turned around and looked at him without blinking. She lowered her gaze as she said in a worried tone, Ling Chen, I can feel that youre very sad I thought that Ling Chen was someone who always made others feel peaceful and happy. So it turns out that Ling Chen can be sad to this degree as well.
Ling Chen shook his head and did not say anything. He stood beside Shadissika and silently looked at the moons reflection on the water.
Ling Chen. Shadissika looked up at him. If, if one day I was like those 2 big sisters, or if I disappeared so that you couldnt find me, would you feel this sad as well?
Ling Chens eyes trembled and bent down to hug Shadissika. Of course I would.
Why? Shadissikas voice sounded quite emotional. Evidently, she was quite touched by Ling Chens reply. Those 2 big sisters have been with you for so long, so its only natural that you are so close with them. However, I was picked up by you and taken care of by you so well, but I cant do anything for you
Its because Ling Chen shook his head, cutting Shadissika off. Its because Sha Sha is my little angel. Every time I see Sha Sha, I feel much happier, and my mind feels much better. This is something that no one else but Sha Sha can give me.
Ling Chens words represented how he really felt about Sha Sha. There was something magical about her. Every time he saw or hugged her, he felt a sense of happiness and satisfaction. This sort of feeling became immersed in his soul, and although she had only been with him for 2 months, he already couldnt imagine not having her by his side.
Little angel A light flickered in Sha Shas eyes, but it was quickly replaced by an incomprehensible light. Following this, her gaze became dim, and her voice became softer, Then Then what if Sha Sha was a bad person a very bad person, who whos worse than a demon
Ling Chen laughed and looked into Sha Shas eyes as he earnestly said, How could Sha Sha associate herself with demons alright, even if Sha Sha really were a demon, Ill be this little demons guardian. No ones allowed to harm my little demon.
Sha Sha silently looked into his eyes with a calm and sincere look in her eyes.
Alright, be good and go to sleep now. Its easy to get a cold if you stay out here so late, Ling Chen softly said as he stroked Sha Shas cold face.
After staring at Ling Chen for a while, she lightly replied with a mm, then walked back towards her room. Sha Sha was acting quite strangely, and normally, Ling Chen would have realised this and asked her what was wrong. However, Ling Chens mind was at an incredibly low point, and he didnt have any mind to notice or ask about it.
Shadissika did not return to her own room. She appeared in the back garden, which contained a multitudes of flowers, and stood in the corner as she silently stared at the man-made lake and the soulless Ling Chen. Her gaze flickered the entire time as if she felt incredibly conflicted. After a while, a cool breeze blew past, causing the rock-like Ling Chen to sway. Seeing this, Sha Shas heart ached, and she almost called out his name.
If I do that, I might be discovered by them
Shadissika slowly stretched out her right hand, and she lowered a small finger
I dont want to see him like this. Even if Im discovered
A drop of blood dripped out from Shadissikas finger into the small bottle she was holding. This bottle was one of the bottles that contained the Fairy Fountain water. Before the drop of blood fell in, half of it contained water from the man-made lake.
