*bang* Le Yao Yao felt as if she had been struck by lightning. Her mind instantly turned blank. Her mouth was opened in disbelief. She was tongue tied.
It took a while before Le Yao Yao was able to find her voice.
“Yu, you’re joking, right? It’s me? Yao Yao! What’s going on? Yu…”
Leng Jun Yu’s handsome brows crinkled. He paused and asked, “You really know me?”
“Of course! Yu! I’ve been searching for you in agony! How could you have forgotten about me? I’m Yao Yao!” cried Le Yao Yao.
Le Yao Yao could tell Leng Jun Yu was staring at her like she was a stranger. It pained her so much. Her eyes began to turn misty and tears streamed down her face.
Leng Jun Yu didn’t know who the woman was, but for some strange reason, seeing her cry was torturous to him. He couldn’t help but gaze at her tenderly.
The woman dressed in purple clothes noticed this and fear could be seen in her eyes. She was panicking.
What’s going on? It has been a month since they’ve met. She even made him eat the love parasite! But he has never gazed at her like this?
Could her love parasite be ineffective?
Or, brother Leng loves this woman?
No! This can’t be happening!
Thinking of this, the woman quickly placed the silver taels down on the table and grabbed Leng Jun Yu. She wanted to get out of there as soon as possible.
“Brother Leng, let’s go!” The girl dressed in purple tugged his hand.
But Le Yao Yao would never let them leave like this. So, without thinking, she stood in front of Yu. “No, Yu! You can’t leave me like this!”
“Sorry, you’ve got the wrong person. He is not Yu. He’s my fiancé!” the lady in purple refuted.
The lady in purple seemed afraid but it only lasted a second. Then, she looked enraged. She was acting like a mother hen, protecting her “duckling” from being captured by the hawk (Le Yao Yao).
When Le Yao Yao heard this, she trembled. “What? He’s your…. Fiancé?!”
The words were like arrows as they stabbed through Le Yao Yao’s heart. She probably couldn’t handle the news. Her body swayed and she looked like she was going to collapse.
Seeing this, Leng Jun Yu wrapped one of his arms around Le Yao Yao’s thin waist to steady her. His eyes were filled with concern.
“Miss..are you..alright?” he gently asked.
“Yu, you care about me! You still have me in your heart, right?!” cried Le Yao Yao.
Le Yao Yao could see the tenderness in Yu’s eyes and felt a glimmer of hope. She could tell Yu might have lost his memories, but he still had her in his heart somewhere; even if it was just a little.
Yu’s heart was slightly touched. It was as if a stone had fallen into his pond and caused a ripple effect.
Her face looks so familiar. He might have seen her somewhere before…
“Miss, you seem very familiar. Have we met previously?”
“Haha. Of course! Not only have we met, we already have a child together.” Le Yao Yao laughed sourly and cried simultaneously.
But her words were like a bomb to someone else.
“What? Child? You two already have a child together?!” The lady in purple couldn’t handle the news and shouted.
“No! Impossible!” Her eyes grew big. It was then that Le Yao Yao realized the girls around Yu were sisters. The one in purple was clearly romantically interested in Yu. The other younger one was someone she had already met in the past!
“Sai Ya, it’s you!”
“How do you know my name?” Sai Ya replied in astonishment. She was confused. Then, she muttered, “I feel like I’ve seen you from somewhere before…”
Le Yao Yao hesitated for a second, but decided she didn’t want to hide it anymore. “Sai Ya, we have met in the past. A month ago, I was disguised as a man and came to your home with Xuan’er and a man dressed in black.”
“What?? You are…y-y-y-you are….brother Le?!?” Sai Ya exclaimed.
“You’re actually a woman?!?!”
“Yes, I am. Sorry for misleading you, Sai Ya.”
Sai Ya remained silent. The lady in the purple was Sai Ya’s elder sister, Sai Qi. “Sai Ya, you know her?”
“Yes, elder sister. She was a tourist and a guest. Last time, you were on the mountains searching for herbs, so you weren’t present.”
Sai Ya lowered her head and responded quietly. She couldn’t believe she actually fell in love with a woman.
Sai Qi pursed her red lips and tugged Leng Jun Yu’s hand and brought him back to her side. “Brother Leng, let’s go home!”
“No, Yu, you can’t leave with her! You’ve already been missing for so long. It was so difficult for me to find you. I thought you were dead. Fortunately, God decided to spare you.”
Le Yao Yao could see the lust that Sai Qi had for her man. She was extremely uncomfortable and irritated about this.
Seeing this, Qi Ying Ying stepped in and yelled at Sai Qi. “Excuse me, Miss. Please release brother Leng’s hand, ok? Brother Leng is my sister Yao Yao’s husband. They already have a five year old child together!”
Sai Qi couldn’t handle this news and burst into tears. She ran out of the tea shop, weeping.
Sai Ya and Leng Jun Yu both called out at the same time. But Leng Jun Yu didn’t chase after her. So, Sai Ya gazed at Le Yao Yao and then at Leng Jun Yu. Then, she heavily sighed and ran after her sister.
Now, both sisters were gone. Le Yao Yao turned to the man next to her. “Yu, I knew you wouldn’t die! This is great!”
“You really know who I am? Then, who am I?”
Leng Jun Yu could see the tears still running down Le Yao Yao’s face. WIthout thinking, he raised his hand to wipe the tears off her face. “Please, don’t cry…”
For some reason, when this woman cries in front of him, it breaks his heart.
Le Yao Yao cracked out a smile. “Alright. I won’t cry. Yu is alive. You’re back. Why am I crying? Haha…!”
Leng Jun Yu thought it was really funny how Le Yao Yao was crying and laughing at the same time. His heart was touched.
Qi Ying Ying chirped from the side. “Sister Yao Yao, let’s head back now! This is not a good area to chat.”
“Mm. Let’s head back.” Le Yao Yao nodded and agreed. She turned to Yu. “Yu, let’s go home!”
