“Ahahahaha!” Si Mu Han began to laugh. It was as if he had heard a joke. “You wouldn’t.”
“No! I would!”
“I really would! I’ll kill you!” Le Yao Yao shrieked.
At this time, Mei, Xing, Hong Luo Chang and Qing Feng stopped fighting and saw what was happening.
When Hong Luo Chang and Qing Feng saw the dagger against their leader’s neck, they freaked out. Immediately, they backed away from their fights and flew to them. However, they stopped 5 metres away from Le Yao Yao.
“Leader!” they yelled.
However, Si Mu Han didn’t seem to care about them. He continued. “If you’re in a rush, then hurry up.”
Then, Si Mu Han applied strength against Yu’s sword. Although Leng Jun Yu was strong, at this moment, he was very fragile due to his severe injury. So, Si Mu Han’s sword was gradually getting closer and closer to stabbing Yu.
Currently, Le Yao Yao felt like there were two people arguing in her mind.
“Kill him! Or else, Yu will die! If Yu dies, you won’t be able to live anyway!”
“No, you can’t kill him…but….”
At this moment, Yu finally spoke. He probably sensed her indecisiveness.
“Yao Yao, don’t hesitate. Kill him now!”
If she doesn’t do it, Yu will die.
The moment Le Yao Yao imagined Yu dead, tears began to well up in her eyes. They rolled down her pale cheeks and down her chin.
*pa* it landed right on top of the sword that was against Leng Jun Yu.
The drop of tear caused both men to freeze.
Suddenly, it was so quiet that if a needle had fallen on the ground, it would’ve been heard.
Eventually, Si Mu Han sighed and hopelessly stated. “I have always lived a desolated life until Xin’er appeared. She was so kind. She wouldn’t even step on an ant. She hated the fact I slaughter others. Oftentimes, she would urge me to stop. She wanted us to live in the woods in seclusion. She wanted to live peacefully. But I never did what she wanted. Perhaps, God wanted to punish me for all the killing I’ve done and took away the woman I loved most.”
Wow, his love for his wife is so deep.
“Honestly, I know you’re not Xin’er. But I wouldn’t face reality because I kept pretending you were her. If she were to come back, I would definitely promise her that I won’t kill anymore. I would move to the woods with her. We would live peacefully and have several children of our own. We would have our happily ever after…”
Si Mu Han’s eyes were filled with hope. But very quickly, they were replaced with disappointment and sorrow.
“Sadly, I will never be able to say these words to her again…”
Suddenly, there was a lot of determined glint in his eyes. He turned to look at Le Yao Yao.
Seeing this, Le Yao Yao felt a sense of dread. But before she could react, she felt a strong force pushing against her hands. Si Mu Han had deliberately committed suicide against her dagger. Le Yao Yao felt warm blood dripping all over her hands.
“This is the only way I can be free. Ah….” Si Mu Han weakly smiled. “I…..I can finally go find her in the underworld…”
Then, Si Mu Han closed his eyes and passed away blissfully. He looked like he was sleeping.
“Noooooooo!” Le Yao Yao was traumatized and numb. She felt as if her heart was empty.
In a flash, a red figure wrapped her arms around Si Mu Han’s dead body. “No, Leader! You can’t die! You can’t leave me like this!” she sobbed. She was like a wild beast who had lost her mate.
Hong Luo Chang was a mess. All her attention and thought were on Si Mu Han. It was as if she would never let go.
Then, she pulled out her sword and ruthlessly slashed it across her neck.
“No!” Qing Feng screamed. He wanted to stop it but he was too late.
Hong Luo Chang’s sword had already fallen onto the snow, dripping with fresh blood.
It looked almost like red plum flowers expanding.
However, Hong Luo Chang had a smile on her face. She seemed satisfied. “Regardless of life or death, I’ll always be with you.”
Then, Hong Luo Chang closed her eyes and leaned against Si Mu Han’s head.
Both of them were dressed in red and had blissful smiles across their faces. If people ignored the blood spouting out of their necks, they would look like they were sleeping.
Le Yao Yao felt as if she was suffocating. She couldn’t say a word.
In her imaginary world, no one dies.
However, the two that were dead looked at peace. It was as if this was the best ending for them.
While they were alive, they couldn’t be together. So, they met again at death.
What they couldn’t accomplish during life was accomplished at death.
Le Yao Yao couldn’t help but feel touched.
Her tears were uncontrollable. At this moment, Leng Jun Yu wrapped his arms tightly around her. He removed the dagger from her hand.
Le Yao Yao recognized the familiar scent of ambergris and slowly calmed down. The man holding her made her feel so safe. “Yu….”
Seeing Le Yao Yao cry like a helpless child broke Leng Jun Yu’s heart.
Mei and Xing were physically supporting him as he held onto Le Yao Yao.
As for Qing Feng, he walked over to Si Mu Han and Hong Luo Chang without emotion.
However, he was trembling so much that it was obvious he was breaking down internally.
Qing Feng gently brushed his large hand over to fix Hong Luo Chang’s messy long hair.
Then, he stood up holding Hong Luo Chang and Si Mu Han’s bodies; one in each arm.
No one stopped him as they quietly watched him vanish from their line of sight.
Le Yao Yao felt so depressed. After all this, she had a deeper understanding of love. From now on, she must love her man even more.
“Yu, I love you so much…” she whispered.
“Silly, I love you too.”
Standing behind them, Mei and Xing secretly glanced at each other and smiled. (end of 189 raws)
