Ling Luo looked at Ning Meng Yao quietly. That look made her laugh: “Look, you don’t even know that.”
“No, Yao’er, come back with me.” Ling Luo said eagerly.
Although the man at the side didn’t say a word until now, Ling Luo felt a sense of danger from him.
“Yao Yao, let’s go.” Qiao Tian Chang saw that Ning Meng Yao was staring at the man silently, so he lowered his head at the person to his side and whispered.
“Okay, let’s go.” Ning Meng Yao smiled at Qiao Tian Chang, then followed him.
With just a few steps, Ling Luo was beside Ning Meng Yao. Grabbing her wrist, he demanded coldly: “Who is he?”
She struggled her wrist a little to break away from his grip. Then, she smiled ironically at his question: “He is the one I love.”
The person she love? Ling Luo’s eyes widened at this. Impossible, he didn’t believe it.
“You love this person? No, this is impossible.” Even if she left his side, he had never expected that she would belong to someone else one day. In his heart, Ning Meng Yao had always been his.
Ning Meng Yao looked at Ling Luo with sarcasm and asked indifferently: “Why is it impossible? He had gone through obstacles just to get what I want, for that he can even go up the mountain and go down the river, and because of me, he had willingly went to the kitchen, helping me with the dishes and even learned how to cook. Have you ever done any of this for me? I guess you didn’t even think about it.”
Before the comparison, she hadn’t realized it. However, comparing the two now, Ning Meng Yao felt that Ling Luo really was nothing when compared to Qiao Tian Chang.
Ling Luo looked gloomily at Ning Mengyao: “When did you become so superficial?” How could he, Ling Luo, possibly do those things? He is the Prince of Hou Fu. How can he do something so insulting?
“So what if I’m superficial? I don’t want to live a rich life. I just want a quiet life in this small mountain village. Ling Luo, you can’t give me what I want. Neither last time, nor this time too. Being together is impossible for us.” Ning Meng Yao stared at Ling Luo seriously.
At the beginning of the winemaking, she had been considering this issue. She had been thinking whether or not she should be ruthless when facing Ling Luo.
However, it was when she really faced him, that she discovered that she didn’t care about Ling Luo as much as she had imagined. Ling Luo, too, didn’t care about her as much as she had imagined.
On the contrary, a man ,who she had just met, knew exactly what she wanted and that she didn’t like to be in the kitchen. Even if her cooking was excellent, Ling Luo had never noticed it, while Qiao Tian Chang did. It was because of this, that he had willingly learned how to cook with her or Grandmother Qin* in the kitchen. [TLN: Qin Pozi will be changed to Grandmother Qin. Qin Pozi is literally the pinyin]
Although all of that seemed small, Qiao Tian Chang had really impressed her.
“If you want, I could…”
“No, you won’t, Ling Luo. If you could do it, you wouldn’t have proposed for me to be your second wife. And then you went and took over the county owner and obtained a position as the Prince of Hou Fu. Because of all this, you can’t let go the power anymore. The only reason why you’re here is because you’re upset.” Ning Mengyao didn’t wait for Ling Luo to finish his sentence. She spoke coldly while facing him.
That’s right, the whole reason to Ling Luo coming here today, was because he wasn’t happy with his loss, but she didn’t want to be involved with him anymore.
“No, that’s not true.” Ling Luo felt somewhat guilty.
Ning Meng Yao glanced at him once more and said: “Your eyes flicker a lot when you lie. You have never understood me before, Ling Luo.”
“Just go. Don’t ever come here again. No matter how many times you try, the result will still be the same. I just want to live in peace here. I won’t bother you, and I hope you don’t bother me too.” Ning Meng Yao said at last.
Ling Luo felt that it was a bit cruel of her to say that.
“Are you really doing this to me?”
“This isn’t how I want to treat you, but you had let go of our relationship. You and I had changed long ago. You’ve integrated into the world and become eager for power as those others who are like you. This isn’t something that I ever wanted, whether it was last time or now.”
