Chapter 932: Farewell and Take Care
Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
Xia Ling was a little nervous.
She remembered the last time she saw him. In the dark study of his villa, he pressed her against his desk and forcefully ripped off her clothes… This man was a dangerous person. No matter where he was, she could never let her guard down. She looked at him with caution.
His voice was dry. “You’re leaving?”
She said, “I’m already married to Li Lei, so of course I have to move out. I also hope you find your other half soon.”
I hope you find your other half soon…
Her words were more painful to him than anyone else’s. The words were like a sharp knife that sliced his heart. Pei Ziheng lowered his head to look at her. “You are the only one I love.”
Li Lei looked uncomfortable. This man was seriously too arrogant. Did he think that her husband was dead?!
Xia Ling said, “The past is in the past. Farewell and take care.”
“Farewell and take care?” There was faint light in Pei Ziheng’s eyes. In the corner of his eye, he saw the servant hang the signboard which said “For Sale” on the flower vine.
“Sell your house to me.” He said.
This time, Xia Ling was not very happy. “Pei Ziheng, why are you still clinging on to the past? We were done a long time ago. You are handsome and have a successful career. There are many girls waiting to be picked by you. Forgetting me is good for you and for me.”
Pei Ziheng smiled lightly. “We are done? We will never be done.”
Xia Ling coldly said, “Please make way. Li Lei and I are about to enter the car.”
Pei Ziheng refused to give way. “What you owe me and what I owe you will never be paid in this lifetime.”
Xia Ling did not want to be entangled with him any longer. However, when he mentioned that she “owed” him, something flashed through her mind. These two days, when she was packing her items, she finally remembered what Pei Ziheng owed her! “Where’s my horse, Valiant Song?” She lifted her head and asked Pei Ziheng. “If you give Valiant Song back to me, I will sell this villa to you.”
This time, Pei Ziheng was slightly startled.
Xia Ling was a little anxious. “I give you my word.” Since he wanted the villa, he could have it. Even if she refused to sell it, he had countless ways to obtain the villa from her hands. It was better to use the villa to exchange for her loyal horse, Valiant Song…
Was it very old now? However, it was fine. She would take care of it well.
Pei Ziheng’s voice was dark. “Valiant Song? It’s dead.”
“No, I don’t believe…” Xia Ling mumbled. “It’s a purebred horse and is from a noble bloodline. It was always healthy and logically speaking, it shouldn’t die so easily. Did you abuse it?!”
“Xiao Ling, in your heart, am I that sort of person?” Pei Ziheng sounded hurt.
Xia Ling stopped talking, but her eyes clearly said “yes.” Seeing the stalemate between the two, Li Lei stepped forward, took Xia Ling’s hand, and skillfully separated her from Pei Ziheng. “Let’s go, Xiao Ling. You just got pregnant and the doctor said that you have to rest well. Let’s talk about Valiant Song some other time.”
There was a sharp pain in Pei Ziheng’s heart again. She was really pregnant!
He looked very hurt, angry and betrayed. There was also some reluctance…
She did not dare to look at him again. Her heart was in a mess as she hurriedly got on the car with Li Lei.
The car slowly left.
During the ride, Xia Ling was in a bad mood. She leaned her head on Li Lei’s shoulder and looked at the city scenery outside the window without speaking. Li Lei gently hugged her. “Don’t worry. I will investigate what happened to Valiant Song. Perhaps it’s not really dead and Pei Ziheng just does not want to give it back to you.”
She whispered, “I feel restless.”
Li Lei kissed her. “I’m here.”
She looked at the scenery outside the window for a while and then slowly opened her mouth. “At that time when I reincarnated, I had no family, was targeted by Pei Ziheng, and was in so much debt. No one would acknowledge me and everyone bullied me. Even you, Li Lei… At the start, you treated me as a fling.”
She mumbled and told him about her past.
Li Lei was a little distressed. “I’m sorry.” At that time, he never loved any girl before and did not understand what love was. He mixed around with Jin Yifei and Du Yunfeng and changed women like he changed clothes, treating it as something normal. When he took interest in an ordinary girl, his first reaction was to treat her as a fling and not a girlfriend that he planned to marry. However, if he knew what was about to happen next, he would immediately take her to the Civil Affairs Bureau to get a marriage certificate. Perhaps, there wouldn’t be so many twists and turns then.
Xia Ling’s butterfly-like eyebrows twitched. “Only Valiant Song recognized me at first glance. You don’t know how much comfort it gave me at that time… I only have myself to blame. Why didn’t I think of getting it back years ago? Li Lei, I’m really afraid that it’s really dead… I won’t be able to forgive myself in this life.”
As she spoke, tears gathered in her eyes.
Perhaps she became weaker after her pregnancy. Li Lei took care of her more gently. “Once we get home, I will investigate what happened to Valiant Song.”
“I will go with you.”
“No way. You’re pregnant.” Li Lei rejected her.
Xia Ling leaned over to look at him. “Li Lei, I have to do something for it. Regardless of whether it is alive, there has to be an explanation. Without clarifying it, I won’t feel at ease.”
Li Lei could not convince her otherwise and could only agree. “Ok, we’ll go together.”
The weather was good the next day.
The Pei Family’s private resort in the suburbs of the S City.
The Pei Family had lived in S City for generations, so the private resorts in the suburbs also had been used for generations. The land space was large, the environment was quiet, and no other family in S City could enter, even the Li Family.
Pei Ziheng looked at a horse in the stable.
Its whole body was red, its fur was smooth and velvety, and its body was strong. It had a pair of sharp eyes. Anyone who saw it would exclaim that it was a “good horse.” Unfortunately, this horse was crippled. No matter how hard it tried, it was obvious that its legs were unbalanced and could no longer run.
Pei Ziheng looked at it for a long time.
The sunlight scattered on its back, highlighting its cold look. No one knew what it was thinking.
This horse was beaten and crippled by him. That year, he did not know that “Ye Xingling” was the reincarnation of his beloved Xiao Ling. He hated how intimate Valiant Song was with another woman other than Xiao Ling. In anger, he broke its leg. However, now, the reality was that Valiant Song was right at that time. It recognized her at first sight.
This crippled leg seemed to mock him for his arrogance, stubbornness, and the way he continued to hurt his beloved woman again and again. Those were the reasons why he pushed his woman into the arms of someone else.
He looked at Valiant Song and his expression gradually turned dark.
