He walked to the balcony. The rain at that moment seemed to have lightened, and the air held a faint earthy musk which he did not like very much.
He leaned against the wall and smoked stick after stick of cigarettes, and he was certain that if he continued to smoke, he would get tobacco poisoning.
“Xia Ruoxin, tell me, are you dead yet?”
He laughed suddenly. Once again, the name made his heart ache.
He thought he had long forgotten her, but he realized that he was wrong. He didn’t forget. He never did. He could clearly remember her face, her undying love, and her defeated heart.
His lips curled into a sneer, and he flung away the cigarette butt in his hand. “Xia Ruoxin, I don’t know if you’ve heard, but I’m married again. I even made her wedding night a million—no, a billion—times better than yours. Are you jealous? Are you crying?”
However, not a single person knew where she was and what she was doing now.
“Xia Ruoxin, tell me. Why did you leave for so long? Why can’t I forget you? Why?”
A million whys, but no one was there to answer them. He lit up another cigarette and took a huge breath and then exhaled.
He didn’t know that—not far from him, Li Manni’s hand was covering her lips tightly. Her tears flowed continuously as she listened to her newly-wed husband call out someone else’s name. That someone else was his ex-wife.
She was not willing to resign herself to that. She was jealous, but there was nothing she could do. She curled up her body and wiped away the tears from the corner of her eyes. That woman must already be dead, and so the final winner was still her. She would be the only one to receive his love.
She walked back to her room quietly. Her wedding night started with a passionate fire, but it was ending with her lonely sigh. Chu Lui never returned, and she pretended that she didn’t know anything. She was a clever woman, and so she would never interrogate her husband. Only women who could stay by his side would be happy.
She believed that one day, she would be the only one in his heart. No one would be able to separate them, be it Xia Yixuan or Xia Ruoxin.
For the first time, both of their hearts were headed in different directions. Even though their statuses were closer now, but they have grown further apart.
Something was changing slowly, but neither knew.
Maybe this change would take a few years. Maybe it would take their whole lives.
After several days of rain, the weather finally cleared up. It wasn’t very hot, but it wasn’t that cold either. The weather after the rain was particularly fresh, especially in the morning. A deep breath would really make a person feel refreshed.
“Didn’t you guys notice something weird?” Someone asked.
“Hmm, what? What’s weird?”
The person thought for a while and asked unsurely, “Ruoxin hasn’t come out to do laundry for about a few days now. Could something have happened?”
The others all looked at one another at the same time and then dashed in the direction of the small warehouse. She should be giving birth soon. Might it be that at night, there wasn’t anyone to care for her; and they both didn’t make it? No, that would be too pitiful.
