She Must Live To The Fullest
A familiar sound reminded Yu Ling Long of the girl’s name.
“Xuan Cao, what’s up with you?” Yu Ling Long finally managed to break free from her hug. After all, getting hugged by someone who was wet shouldn’t be all that comfortable.
Xuan Cao was Yu Ling Long’s close maidservant who followed her ever since she was young. Yu Ling Long wasn’t really welcomed by Madam Mu when she first came to Yu Courtyard and she lived her days with nothing to eat and nothing to wear. It was Xuan Cao who had always stolen food from the kitchen. Only then could they barely live through their days.
Yu Ling Long knew that Xuan Cao was the only one who was actually nice to her in the whole courtyard.
Hearing from other people about Madam Mu planning to drug Yu Ling Long, Xuan Cao was worried and waited in the heavy rain outside for the whole night, only then could she see Yu Ling Long.
“Miss, wu wu wuu (Crying) ——” Having seen the unharmed Miss, Xuan Cao was happy enough to cry so much that she couldn’t say anything else.
Seeing this delicate girl crying for her sake, Yu Ling Long couldn’t help but feel compassionate. This girl might not know yet, but the real miss that she once knew was already gone. Instead, what welcomed her was the was her who came from the future.
“Do not cry. Look, your clothes are all wet. Go change.” She wasn’t really used to saying something nice like this. Her tone couldn’t help but feel off.
Xuan Cao stopped her tears, looking up to Yu Ling Long. While looking at her, she froze up.
Something about Miss didn’t feel the same……
Xuan Cao, who grew up with Yu Ling Long ever since they were small, was aware that something was different. Usually, after a big disaster, Miss would have already hugged her and cried with her. However, now that Xuan Cao looked at the calm and cold face of the alienated miss, she suddenly felt that she was unfamiliar.
Xuan Cao had never ever seen that expression on her face before.
Maybe Miss suffered from a great shock, thus changing her personality?
Yu Ling Long was obviously ignoring Xuan Cao’s scrutinizing eyes and looked around the room. Just by looking around, she knew that this was the most remote place in the courtyard. If she really had died here, it might have taken years before someone would stumble around here, discover her corpse, and take it away.
This Madam Mu generally isn’t heartless. However, just to cure her own daughter, she was willing to sacrifice another life.
Unluckily, she happened to be the Yu Estate’s concubine’s child. She still had to live under Madam Mu’s hand in the future, and having been reminded of her identity as an illegitimate daughter, Yu Ling Long was able to easily come to a conclusion: Her path as an ancient concubine’s child would be filled with hardship and suffering.
Yu Ling Long’s bright red mouth made a cold smile. This is great, she just loves having to live a challenging life!
Ignoring Xuan Cao’s surprised look, Yu Ling Long went outside the room, not looking back while saying: “If you don’t want to be bitten by scorpions, you should hurry and come out!”
Xuan Cao had been so worried about Yu Ling Long’s state that she did not realize a group of scorpions were coming. When she became aware, she realized that the ground was filled with danger. She screamed and quickly ran out of the room.
This was Yu Ling Long’s first night since coming from the future. She thought that lying down on a stiff and cold wooden bed would be hard to sleep on, but she actually slept soundly, falling asleep as soon as her head hit the pillow.
In her dream, she was back inside the narrow tunnel, but this time, she was walking in the opposite direction. It was the same hazy light. When she started to get closer to the light, her heart began to beat faster. Her subconscious seemed to know the kind of scene she’d find on the other side of the light……
“……Meizi, I will always love you……” said a very familiar voice. As usual, it was saying sweet nothings, kissing her lightly and heavily, all over her body.
In this situation, she wasn’t the all-powerful and mighty gang community’s big sister anymore. She was nothing more but an ordinary woman now, a happy woman.
That’s right. No matter how awesome a woman may be, being in front of the man they loved was all the same. They would be very gentle. Similarly, no matter how shrewd a woman could be, in front of the one they love, they are all the same. They would be blind.
“…… Leave the business to me. Just be my obedient wife, be a happy woman……” a comfortable and gentle voice made her feel very happy.
Yes, it was that day. That day she gave away all the industrial companies that she once owned to him, leaving him to handle everything. She even prepared a huge buffet to announce that one, she had retired and two, to establish her status in the gang community.
“Darling…… you are so nice……”
Before finishing her sentence, she suddenly realized a cold pain was felt from her left chest!
She pushed away his hug subconsciously. She looked down only to see, to her surprise, a knife that was stabbed into her heart!
She couldn’t believe what she saw in front of her. As she became dizzy, she only felt that everything in front of her was pitch black. Her warm and soft quilt had also become so heavy and cold.
Before her will dispersed, she only saw his cold smile.
“Yu Mei, thank you for working so hard for me! Right now, I can finally be with my one and only true love justifiably.”
He had actually been using her!
From the start until the end, she had only been living under his lies!
He desecrated her feelings for him, taking away everything from her. In the end, he even tried to take away her life!
Filled with anger that was about to burst, she could only hate herself without being able to do anything while her soul wilted away……
“Ah——” she got up slowly. Cold sweat was already soaked into her clothes.
So it was like this! It was actually like this!
Inside the darkness, her deep eyes were blinking with faint coldness. She had actually trusted that man. That cunning man!
“Miss, what happened?!” The old curtains were lifted up, revealing Xuan Cao’s panicking face.
The dripping sound of the rain from outside the window pulled her back to reality. At this moment, she wasn’t the big sister of the gang community anymore, she was now the unfavored concubine’s child of this ancient era, Yu Ling Long. Someone that was helpless, a woman who couldn’t even solve the simplest problem which was to provide for her basic necessities!
Looking at the dim sunlight that was entering through the window, Yu Ling Long actually smiled. Even inside the dim sunlight, her smile was bright as always.
“Miss…….” Xuan Cao was really scared by Yu Ling Long’s smile. Ever since she escaped from the room that was filled with scorpions, she didn’t recognize her Miss anymore.
Such as the moment when she smiled confidently, it was something that her Miss had never done before.
As Yu Ling Long lay down slowly, her pair of cold and deep eyes stared at the ceiling. It was as if she were seeing a difference scenary.
“Starting tomorrow, we will have good lives to live.”
Since God had set up a new life for her, whether it was out of goodwill or if it was out of malicious intent or even as a joke, she, Yu Ling Long, would accept the identity she had now. She must live well in this new life, live it to the fullest, and also live an awesome life.
