“What did you say? Say it again,” Ning Meng Yao stared at the man in front of her with her eyes wide opened. Her whole body trembled and her eyes carried disbelief.
Ling Luo looked at Ning Meng Yao’s disbelieving expression and opened his mouth. The words that were at the tip of his tongue had trouble coming out in the end.
The person beside him nudged him gently and he nodded his head again. Determined, he said, “Yao’er, you know my situation. To inherit the position of an heir, I have to marry Xiao Zi Xuan. That’s why…that’s why…”
Ning Meng Yao let out a mournful laugh while looking at Ling Luo who was hesitant and finished the sentence for him, “That’s why you want me to become your concubine?”
Ling Luo immediately shook his head, “No…not as a concubine, but an equal wife.”
“Hahaha, equal wife?” Ning Men Yao staggered backwards, her eyes dead set on Ling Luo, “It looks like you don’t know me well enough.”
What kind of person was Ning Meng Yao? Crossing two lives, would she be willingly share the person she liked with another woman?
She and Ling Luo were lovers in their previous lives who were about to get married when they got into an accident and arrived in this unfamiliar era. When they arrived here, he was the young master of Lingyun Marquessate, receiving much care and pamper, while she was an abandoned orphan.
After they got into that accident, he was remained good towards her, not caring about his status. She thought both of them could be the same as how they were in their previous life, loving only each other.
It had been six years since they arrived in this unfamiliar era. She had not changed, but he had. To obtain power and position, he wanted to have her and other women.

When had she, Ning Meng Yao, fallen to this degree?
“Yao’er, listen to me. I love you, but it’s just that…” Looking at Ning Meng Yao’s eyes that were slowly turning cold, Ling Luo walked up to her and grabbed her arm, anxiously trying to explain.
“Love? Ling Luo, the one who doesn’t deserve to speak about love is you. You say you love me? But you love your power and position above all else. To think that you still do not know me. I have my own pride, asking me to share the man I like with other women, that’s just impossible,” Ning Meng Yao snatched her hand back as she said coldly.
Ling Luo looked at the hand that she had kept away and his body turned somewhat stiff. “Yao’er, why are you being like this? Polygamy is a normal thing here.”
Ning Meng Yao’s pupils shrunk as she looked right at Ling Luo, “Polygamy? Normal? Then you should continue living the life you regard as normal, don’t come and bother me anymore.”
Spitting out those words, she thought she was strong and she wouldn’t feel sad, but when heard them out loud, her heart ached to the point she was having difficulty breathing.
Unfortunately for her, she did not when his thoughts began to change to match the ideals of people from this era, just as pedantically ignorant.
“Yao’er, why won’t you understand me? I’m just doing what’s best for us,” Ling Luo looked at Ning Meng Yao’s eyes that were becoming more unfeeling as his frustrations grew before he finally roared at her angrily.
Ning Meng Yao walked a step at a time before raising her hand to deliver two heavy slaps on his face. “For the best of us? Ling Luo, you’re only thinking for yourself. From now on, we have no relations. The next time we meet, we are just strangers.”
She looked at Ling Luo deeply, her pair of eyes no longer had any affection for him and there was only an unfeeling coldness. Her long white cotton skirt fluttered against the wind, making her seem like a butterfly which flew lightly onto a flower.
Ling Luo covered his face, his eyes watching as Ning Meng Yao left. He neither chased after her nor asked her to stay, but he didn’t know that his decision of letting her go would make them estranged forever.
Ning Meng Yao didn’t know how she managed to arrive back at home. She was at a loss as she looked at her delicate and small courtyard.
Looking at this small courtyard, Ning Meng Yao laughed to herself. She thought he would always be by her side, just like how she had wished. But now, it seemed that reality slapped her good in the face.
