Qianbei Ye rubbed his chin against Gu Ruoyun's head, his voice held warmth and certainty as if making a promise separate from many lifetimes.
"Don't worry, I will always be with you. Be it heaven or hell, I will be with you. Those days in the past when you had escaped death must have been lonely. In the future, I will make sure that you never feel alone. I will kill anyone you hate, even if you hate the entire world, I will destroy the world for you."
If I hate the world, he would destroy the entire world? He does not even mind becoming a devil?
Upon hearing this, Gu Ruoyun felt moved. She slowly closed her eyes and leaned her entire body, mind, and soul onto the man's body.
"Xiao Ye, did you know? After my reincarnation, I've never met my parents in my current life but I miss them dearly. Perhaps this was a feeling that the previous Gu Ruoyun had left behind for me, and perhaps it was also because we are related by blood. I still believe that they are not dead! Only lost. But I'm bitterly disappointed with the Dongfang Family's attitude."
Gu Ruoyun opened her eyes with a cold smile hanging on her lips, "My mother and father loved each other, what was wrong with that? Yet years ago, the Dongfang family had refused to acknowledge my mother even though this had been her wish. She did not want to burden the Dongfang Family with her decision. I don't blame them for mother's death, some enemies are simply too powerful and cannot be resisted by the Dongfang Family. While I don't sympathize with the old man's methods in protecting the family, I can understand. But even you knew how the Gu Family had treated my mother and the previous occupant of this body! If the Dongfang Family had not ignored her, why would he look down on my mother?"
"If... If it wasn't for the fact that no one from the Dongfang Family ever chose to stand up, the previous Gu Ruoyun would still be alive."
Gu Ruoyun sighed heavily and said.
The previous Gu Ruoyun was already dead, she is now Xia Ruoyun!
If the Dongfang Family could have vouched for the previous inhabitant of this body then she would not have died with remaining resentments!! Of course, if it weren't for the death of the previous inhabitant, she would not have been able to reincarnate...
Hence, she felt both resentment and gratitude towards the Dongfang Family.
Qianbei Ye held the young girl's cold body tightly in his arms as he lowered his eyes and coaxed her softly, "You still have me..."
Gu Ruoyun lightly puckered her lips as a sense of warmth passed over her heart. She knew that even if she were to (one day) become an enemy of the world, he would still remain by her side, never leaving nor abandoning her...
Even if she was turned into a great monster targeted by many, he would still believe that everything she did was right.
Actually, Gu Ruoyun was rejoicing. She rejoiced the fact that she met him that year and had accepted him. Otherwise, right now, he would not even be by her side...
Suddenly, Qianbei Ye's face sank and shot a cold and eerie glare at a willow tree under the night sky. His voice was gloomy and a murderous intent stirred from the space between his brows, "Show yourself!"
Just as he spoke, small red fellow rolled out from behind the willow tree. He tottered and rolled until he reached Qianbei Ye, his green eye and red eye were both filled with confusion and cowardice as they staring timidly up at the silver-haired man before him.
