Chapter 97: The Childhood Sweethearts (2)
El’phyllis’s kiss was more serious than at any time before. It wasn’t a game. It was a declaration. Even though she knew that her rival was Hua Huo, she wouldn't give up. She was Yun Xi’s most intimate person other than Hua Huo.
She was about the same age as Hua Huo and had a more matured mind. Her appearance and temperament were also not inferior to Hua Huo. However, as a girl of the nobility, she didn’t even have any betrothal with anyone. That was a pretty strange thing especially in White Lotus Sword Domain.
As far as Yun Xi knew, the suitors she had refused were ten times more than the people Hua Huo had refused.
“Yun Xi, remember, don’t give up. I will find some way to help you!” El’phyllis held Yun Xi’s both hands tightly. She really didn’t want to let him go.
Finally, as Yun Xi gazed at her with amazement, she ground her teeth, then determinedly turned around and ran away.
“Ah… Gee… What did she mean… Has she known something?” Yun Xi stood beside the stream like a wood pile. He was confused and didn’t know what had happened.
After leaving Yun Xi's sight, El’phyllis had a long walk. Finally, she stopped with an apathetic look. At the same time, her temperament suddenly changed. That was absolutely not some temperament that a daughter of gem store could have.
“Pa! Pa! Pa!” One ruby after another dropped down from her dress and fell on the ground, turning into ashes.
“Curse you… Why did I fail?! Hua Huo, you're really my enemy! Sky Flying Bloodline? Is that the reason that you can have everything wonderful in the world? I’m the person who loves Yun Xi the best!” El’phyllis showed undisguised hostility. She slightly showed her another face at this time.
“Calm down, my little girl. You shouldn’t privately order Black Obsidian to assassinate Hua Huo. You knew that she was no match for Hua Huo,” An old voice suddenly came from the shadow behind El’phyllis.
“Then what should I do? She is going to take Yun Xi away! Only Yun Xi, only he… I don’t want to let him go!” El’phyllis bit her handkerchief looking like she was going to break out into weeping.
At first, it was just a simple mission. She only needed to watch Hua Huo. The Sky Flying Bloodline legacy had a bearing on many people’s lives. However, as the aristocratic miss of Ten Leaves Alliance, the first time she used her privilege wasn’t for the bloodline but for an irrelevant ordinary boy.
“Sigh… I will keep this a secret from the alliance, but you should give up on that boy as soon as possible. After all, he is just an ordinary person and you have the Mist Bloodline. He can’t hold a candle to you.”
“No! I don’t want it! This is the first time in my life that I’m so eager for something. Even though my rival is Hua Huo, I won’t give up! Even though he is just an ordinary person, I want him to be my thing! Don’t persuade me. Let’s go back to Western God’s Domain and hold the Great Ritual of Mist Bloodline!” El’phyllis’s eyes were so firm. She had made the decision, and no one could stop her.
“Sigh…” Finally, the old figure in the shadow sighed.
"If at that time Yun Xi had agreed to marry El’phyllis, that would be the best solution and nothing would happen after," the old figure thought in his heart.
As the first successor of the first leaf of Ten Leaves Alliance and the owner of Mist Bloodline, El’phyllis was so weak at dealing with her love. Perhaps this would become El’phyllis’s greatest regret in her life.
At 2’clock in the morning and on the meadow beside the town.
“You’re late, brother,” Milei opened her mischievous eyes wide, seeing Yun Xi running to her in a hurry.
She was a twelve-year-old girl. She had golden hair and a pair of purple eyes. Her soft lips were as red as rubies, striking and eye-catching. Her smooth golden hair fell on her slender shoulders like a waterfall, making her look like a princess from a fairy tale.
Yun Xi remembered that her name “Milei”, was also a goddess’s name in western mythology, and Milei herself was as graceful as her name, having a princess-like temperament.
“Sorry, something happened,” Yun Xi was still confused about the last words had El’phyllis said to him. After all, he had once considered her as his fiancee candidate. If he hadn’t awakened his ability as the starchild, after Hua Huo left town he would probably have married her when he was eighteen years old.
“Let me guess. You went to see El’phyllis, didn't you? Look, these are her jewel powders, let me help you get them off of your clothes. She always uses them to make a mark. If Huo Huo sees them, she will be angry.”
Milei’s expression of “I have seen through everything” made Yun Xi feel pretty embarrassed. She was really a naughty girl, but she was also a considerate girl. This was her advantage and glamour. It was really fun to stay with Milei. She never lacked patience to listen your troubles and comfort you with a smile. Yun Xi often had a dissonant feeling that she didn’t look like a twelve year old girl but was more matured.
“Well… in fact… I’m going to…” Yun Xi said haltingly.
However, before he finished his words, Milei shrugged her shoulders and said what he was going to say, “You will leave town with Hua Huo. Am I right?”
Why did you know it? Yun Xi was dumbfounded. Why had Milei and El’phyllis both known about it?!
“Ha ha, don’t look at me like that. It isn’t a surprise to guess that Hua Huo won’t just leave you here,” Milei climbed up the tree branch and gazed at the western horizon. “In fact, I will also leave here. All these years, I’ve been really happy to have you staying with me. It’s so fantastic and wonderful, just like a sweet dream. However, no fond dream doesn’t have an end, and my dream is going to finish. For the last time, can I call you ‘brother’ again? This is my last hope as your childhood sweetheart.”
“Of course, Milei…” Yun Xi was touched. His childhood sweetheart was still so considerate.
“Well, brother!” Milei jumped down from the tree with a sweet and naughty smile.
Ah, so this was your plan!
Yun Xi softly hugged Milei’s slender body in his arms. For the first time, Milei behaved so wilful. The girl in his arms was so light. Yun Xi could barely feel her weight.
“This… really is a nice dream…” Milei whispered and leaned her head on Yun Xi’s chest.
