Chapter 786: Revisiting the Old Place
This place had changed a lot now. Of course, the Purple Golden Palace had long since disappeared, but now there were some houses in the original Purple Golden Palace.
Although these houses were not gorgeous and exquisite, they were connected in a circle. They looked indescribably warm and elegant.
But Hexi looked at the scene in front of her without a smile on her face. What she remembered was an unpleasant past.
The past was like a fishbone stuck in her throat. It wasn’t that she still cared about Nangong Yu’s attitude at the time. After all, the relationship between the two was far less intimate than it was now.
What she cared about was that Nangong Yu turned coldly to heal Feng Lianying at that time. Was it because he believed Feng Lianying’s words and regarded Hexi as a despicable person who did dirty tricks behind the scenes.
“That day, Feng Lianying and I took the Purple Golden Palace inheritance test together, and she failed. But when I accepted the inheritance, she sneak-attacked me. If it weren’t for Little Egg and Little Golden Dragon risking their lives to save me; if it weren’t for Zhou Yanan and Gu Liufeng rushing here by the time, I might have died in Feng Lianying’s hands.”
Nangong Yu’s body trembled suddenly. He stretched out his hand to hug her tightly, and he said in a hoarse voice, “Xi’er, stop talking!”
Hexi smiled faintly. Her expression full of relief, “I always don’t like to explain, but Nangong Yu, you are different after all, so I’m willing to tell you the thoughts in my heart. That day, I made a narrow escape from Feng Lianying’s hands, then you came.”
“I thought you would choose to protect me and believe me, but you chose to stand beside Feng Lianying and show me a ruthless figure of your back. You even wanted to kill Gu Liufeng, but you never thought that I would have died in Feng Lianying’s hands if Gu Liufeng didn’t come. He was my savior…”
The hands that Nangong Yu hugged her trembled slightly. His eyes seemed to be filled with emotions like countless stormy waves.
His voice became hoarse and low as if it contained countless regrets, pity and love, “Xi’er, I was wrong; I was dazzled by jealousy at that time. Seeing you and Gu Liufeng together; seeing You whispered softly to Gu Liufeng, I was going crazy… Feng Lianying, I never had feelings for her, but at that time I sent too few people into the valley, and the strength of the Feng Family was too strong. I was afraid they would harm you; I only thought I couldn’t offend them…”
“Xi’er, I have never loved other people like you, so I don’t know how to deal with such a turbulent love. Sometimes the feelings and possessiveness that are tumbling in my heart even make me afraid; I’m afraid that I will hurt you and scare you away from me…”
Hexi said what she had hidden in her heart for a long time, and she felt relieved.
Hearing his incoherent confession at this time, she couldn’t help but laugh, “Nangong Yu, why are you aggrieved like I bullied you. It’s fine, I’m just revisiting the old place, and I was just touched by my emotions. Let’s not discuss this topic anymore.”
Nangong Yu didn’t let go of her, but he hugged her tighter, “Xi’er, I really can’t…”
Before Nangong Yu ended his sentence, Hexi pushed him away. Her face was full of shame.
Her gaze was looking not far ahead. Her tone was lowered due to guilty conscience and embarrassment, but she still tried to maintain her calm, “Ouyang Haoxuan, when did you stand there?”
Hearing this, Nangong Yu immediately removed the surging love and affection in his eyes and looked coldly to the side.
