He was unable to speak any further while he was tightly embraced by Huan Qing Yan like a favorite ragged doll, “Bally, you promised you will play with me, you cannot go.”
Dorna’s green tattooed skin immediately turned as red as a cooked shrimp.
“Foolish girl, you…”
He was, to put simply, speechless.
He quickly escaped Huan Qing Yan’s embrace and turned his head to run.
Huan Qing Yan was still holding on to his collar tightly and was dragged by him for a distance…
Ji Mo Ya’s instruction to her about not moving from her spot had long been forgotten.
Dorna struggled, “Foolish girl, let me go.”
“No, you are my Bally, Uncle bought you for me, you are mine, play with me.”
Furious, Dorna said, “Foolish girl, I am not your toy, I am Dorna, I am… I am a proper adult gnome! Us gnomes are more noble than you humans…”
The furious Dorna yanked himself away violently and that caused Huan Qing Yan to fall onto the ground with a loud bang.
The candy on her hand also fell onto the ground; as her face met the ground too, a bump appeared on her head, and her face too was lightly bruised.
Tears instantly flowed out like a fountain.
“Bally, why are you so fierce to me? I am your owner, you cannot not want me… wuuu wuuu… bad Bally…” she cried out loudly on the ground.
Dorna’s pulled clothes was also released at that moment.
If he were to run away now, he could easily disappear and prevent Huan Qing Yan from finding him again…
But he stayed.
He seemed to be struggling with his thoughts as a variety of expressions flashed across his face; he walked to Huan Qing Yan impatiently and took out a flask of water and a small cotton cloth from his waist and used them to clean the dust off Huan Qing Yan’s face.
His tone also sounded much softer, “Where does it hurt?”
“Here, here…” Huan Qing Yan was still laying on the ground with her body facing down, she lifted her head and pointed at the right and left side of her face.
As she laid on the ground, it gave Dorna a height advantage for him to clean up her face.
If not, no matter how Dorna tried, he would never be able to reach beyond her waist.
“Let me tell you, your toy is that ball and not me who was inside, understand? That ball is something that is very important to us gnomes, you will be unable to use it. My name is Dorna, I am a gnome with ambitions; a gnome warrior and I am not your toy, okay?” Dorna used this opportunity to patiently educate her.
Huan Qing Yan pouted her lips and shook her head, “I don’t understand, you are Bally and Bally is you, you are mine…”
Dorna was going insane.
“You want to follow me no matter what?”
Huan Qing Yan thought for a moment, “You can follow me… I want to go with Uncle… let us go together…”
Thus was her logic.
Dorna used the precious water that he could not bare to drink to wipe her face, yet she gave him such an answer… Dorna’s hand trembled and immediately kept the water flask.
After a couple more wipes, “Then go back. Follow that Uncle! Don’t ever look for me again.”
Huan Qing Yan quickly grabbed his thin legs, “I don’t want, you are mine…”
Dorna couldn’t hold back himself and said, “I can only belong to my wife, and since you are not my wife, how could I be yours? Unless you are willing to become my wife!”
Huan Qing Yan did not think much of that statement and replied, “I am willing to be your wife, you are mine.”
Dorna’s face immediately flushed, it was as though his deepest secret had been exposed; he coughed, “I will not accept you even if you are willing to give yourself to me to be my wife, you should go.”
