Chapter 1789: Xiao Ying and Long Ming’s Ending (32)

Long Mei looked at Ximen Jin, who had lost a lot of weight. “Are you… really okay?”

Ximen Jin smiled faintly, his expression unchanged. “I’m strong. What problem could there be?”

Long Mei bit her lip and said with a complicated and heavy heart, “Thank you for saving me despite risking your life.”

“You’re welcome. I want to return what I owed you. I don’t want you to live in hatred and pain.” He looked at her with a calm expression. “I hope you can be happy in the future.”

Before Long Mei came, there were countless words in her heart.

But after seeing him, she could not say anything.

She glanced at the young woman standing by the side. “This is…”

“My marriage partner, Ye Qingqing.”

Long Mei nodded at Ye softly and stood up from the chair. “Then I won’t disturb you anymore.”

“Okay, bye.”

His expression was indifferent, with no intention of asking her to stay.

Long Mei felt suffocated and a lump formed in her throat. She said nothing more and walked out quickly.

She was afraid that if she stayed any longer, she would cry in front of him.

What was there to cry about?

She had originally planned to cut off all ties with him!

Long Mei left the hospital and took a taxi to the airport.

Since he was fine, she did not want to stay here for another second. She was afraid that she would suffocate!

She had thought that she had already forgotten about him, but hearing that he had risked his life to save her, she was still moved and touched!

She was really useless!

She bought the earliest flight back home and got on the plane. She put on her eye mask and tears fell from her eyes.

“Mei’er, how’s it?”

Xiao Ying came out of the dressing room in her wedding dress and looked at the dazed Long Mei.

It had been almost half a month since Long Mei had visited Ximen Jin. Long Mei was still a little distracted and could not do anything.

Long Mei looked up at Xiao Ying.

The wedding dress was beautifully cut and outlined Xiao Ying’s exquisite figure perfectly. Her waist was slender and her legs were long, making her look like a fairy.

Long Mei exclaimed, “Sister-in-law, when you put on makeup on the day of the wedding, I don’t know how many people will be shocked.”

“As long as I don’t embarrass your brother.”

“How can that be? Many people are envious that my brother can marry you!”

After a period of treatment, the Duke’s wife’s condition improved and she doted on Xiao Ying even more. She would bring Xiao Ying along whenever she went to attend banquets.

After Xiao Mai returned to the Duke’s palace, she was completely different from Liu Yiyi. She treated Xiao Ying as her biological sister. Apart from the Duke, who was neglected by the Duke’s wife because of Liu Yiyi’s incident, the atmosphere in the palace was unusually warm and harmonious recently.

Xiao Ying’s identity had also been recognized by the high society and no one dared to oppose her marrying into the royal family.

“Sister-in-law, you and my brother are about to get married. I’m happy for you!”

That night.

When Long Ming returned to the palace, he was surprised to see Xiao Ying reading on the sofa.

Recently, Xiao Ying had been accompanying the Duke’s wife. When he wanted to see her, he even had to go to the Duke’s palace.

Long Ming sat beside Xiao Ying and wrapped his slender arm around her shoulders. “Have you thought it through? Are you going back to the palace?”

Xiao Ying leaned her head against the man’s shoulder and looked at his well-defined and sharp face. She poked him with her finger. “Mom said that before we get married, she won’t let me stay in the palace.”

Long Ming looked down at the woman in his arms. “Did you agree?”

“She’s my mother. Of course I have to agree.”

“Do you still think of me as your man?”

Xiao Ying could not help but smile. “Once I’m married, I’ll move in. You’d better not find me annoying when you see me every day.”

Long Ming lifted the woman’s chin, his eyes darkening slightly. “I will never get enough of you. I will never find you annoying.”

Although this man usually did not speak sweet nothings, he could sweeten her heart with just a few words.

Leaning in his arms for a while, Xiao Ying seemed to have thought of something and looked up at Long Ming. “Mei’er has been depressed recently. As her older brother, why don’t you show more concern to her?”

Long Ming narrowed his eyes slightly. “I’ve been busy with the wedding and the royal family recently. How would I have the energy to care about her?”

“Find a chance to talk to her and tell her about Ximen Jin’s injury!”

In the middle of the night.

The man, who said that he did not have the energy to care about Long Mei, arrived at the rooftop garden.

Long Mei was sitting there, drinking. Hearing footsteps, she turned around. “Brother?”

She was a little surprised that the man, who had been so busy recently, would appear here.

Long Ming walked to Long Mei’s side, took the bottle, and poured a glass of wine into the empty glass.

He leaned against the railing, his eagle-like eyes looking at Long Mei. “You’re still thinking about Ximen Jin?”

Long Mei was stunned before she shook her head in denial. “Who misses him?”

“Mei’er, I’m sure you know about me and your sister-in-law. There was a time when I really hated her and wanted her to die, but I understood later that if I didn’t love her so much, I wouldn’t hate her so much either.”

“Who can guarantee that a person will not make a mistake in his life? Ximen Jin is not unforgivable. I recently found out that in order to save you, his legs were smashed by a rock. I don’t know if he’ll be able to stand up again in this lifetime?”

Hearing Long Ming’s words, Long Mei’s heart beat faster.

Her eyes widened in disbelief. “Brother, what did you say?”

What did he mean by not knowing if he could stand up again in this lifetime?

Long Ming looked at Long Mei deeply and pursed his lips slightly. “Mei’er, he might not be able to stand up again in this lifetime.”

Long Mei’s body trembled violently.

A chill ran down her spine.

What had he said to her when she went to the hospital to visit him?

He said that he was fine and would be discharged soon.

He had not told her that his leg nerves had been injured and that he could not feel anything?!

Long Mei blinked and tears fell uncontrollably.

“Brother, I’m going to find him!”

Long Ming pulled the agitated Long Mei back and looked at her with dark eyes. “Mei’er, from what I know, the Ximen family plans to marry him to the Ye family. Are you sure you want to go and find him?”

During this period, Long Mei had been in low spirits.

She wanted to hypnotize herself and convince herself that she no longer had any feelings for him.

However, her heart still hurt when she thought of him.

She could not hypnotize herself anymore!

She still loved him!

“They’re only planning to get married and haven’t succeeded yet! Brother, I can’t let go, just like how you couldn’t let go of Sister-in-law in the past. I don’t want to do something that I’ll regret in the future. I’m going to find him!”

The worst case scenario was that he would reject her. If she did not express her feelings, she might regret it for the rest of her life!

Long Ming looked at Long Mei and nodded. “Go and rest now. When you’re awake, I’ll get Mo Tian to send you over.”
