Chapter 225: Wake Up
With a cold ‘humph’, he ruthlessly slaps the red wood table by his side.
That sturdy table unexpectedly gets smashed and reduced into pieces.
The powerful pressure that belongs to an Earth Stage expert is released, making everyone inside the room get quiet out of fear.
Especially Shen Jinglin – his complexion is deathly pale, his five organs are boiling, and he’s practically about to cough up blood.
Just at this moment however, a pair of tiny hands squeeze on his fingers.
Shen Jinglin feels an inexplicable warm current pouring into his body, and the pain of his five viscera and six bowels being crushed, all of it fades away and disappears at that moment.
He lowers his head in astonishment, only to be met with Xiao Bao’s frosty and exquisite little face.
For a short while, he looks on somewhat stupidly.
On the other hand, after Master Lou had slammed his palm down, he wraps himself in a terrible pressure and walks towards Shen Jinglin.
“Hehe, in Tianyuan City, there’s never been anything that my Lu family couldn’t do!”
“Don’t want to set about with the marriage today, turns out you actually don’t know what’s good for you. In that case, don’t blame me for being impolite!”
Saying that, he lifts up his hand and sends a palm strike towards Shen Jinglin’s skull.
At the same time, Madam Lu also shouts: “Come, tie that woman up for me, and have her change into a wedding attire. It’s naturally your good fortune that you can be married into my Lu family, but you still dare to resist.”
“If she’s not obedient, then you can sever the tendons on her hands and feet. Anyway, to take the seat as my Lu family’s daughter-in-law, it’s enough that she can bear children!”
A fierce impetus comes out from the bed, and in a flash, it hits the Lu family Master’s hand.
Preventing it from killing Shen Jinglin.
“I, Shen Yicheng, still haven’t died! If you want to move against my son and daughter, you still have to ask if I wouldn’t… cough, cough, cough…”
The unexpected emergence of the hoarse voice makes everyone inside the room jump up in shock.
Shen Jinglin stiffly turns around, and sees the Shen patriarch sitting up with a sober and clear expression in the his eyes. The rims of Shen Jinglin’s eyes redden, “Dad… dad, how are you?!”
He immediately throws himself by the bed, unable to stop his tears from gushing out. He tightly grabs on to the Shen father’s emaciated hand.
Shen Yicheng is also red-eyed, gripping the other’s hand in return. His voice choking with emotions: “Jinglin, father is… very sorry. I’m also so sorry, Yanyan… cough, cough…”
As he says that, he raises his head to look at Muyan, teary eyes filled with guilt and self-blame, “Yanyan, father has let you down, I haven’t taken good care of you. Even letting you receive that kind of humiliation and grievance…”
Thinking of the time before Yi-brother left, it can be said that Yi-brother was entrusting a task before he faces death’s door, yet Shen Yicheng had not fulfilled it.
Shen Yicheng feels so guilty and ashamed that he doesn’t have the courage to keep on living.
However, now isn’t the time for him to die.
Shen Yicheng doesn’t wait for Muyan to speak as his expression becomes resolute, he says through gritted teeth: “But Yanyan should rest assured, father had made a mistake once, I’ll never repeat that mistake again.”
“Today, even if I have to fight with this old life, I will absolutely not allow these people to have their way!”
Muyan watches as this emaciated old man unsteadily gets up from the bed, her expression is somewhat complicated.
Can she say that she doesn’t blame the Shen patriarch?
Of course she blames him.
She blames him for causing the death of mother Zeng Xiuying, blames him for being half-hearted and brought about Su Yuexiang, blames him for handing her over to Su Yuexiang, letting her suffer all kinds of misery, even… losing her innocence, and getting pregnant.
However, when all is said and done, this man had still raised her for more than ten years.
In her previous life, this person had tried so hard to look for for her when she disappeared, never giving up.
They’re clearly unrelated to one another in any way, but he truly treats her as his own daughter and loves her dearly.
Muyan closes her eyes, only to feel that the remaining resentment in her heart has been exhausted at this moment.
