Have you ever thought that I will die under Zhou Si’s arrow?
Of course, he didn’t!
His plan was perfectly safe. Even if something unexpected happens, he has the power to keep her life.
Xiao Tianyao didn’t want to speak so much, he only said: “Benwang arranged for someone to save you. You will not die.” Even if Jing Chi didn’t arrive, didn’t he come personally and save her life, right?
“Arranged someone? Where was he? I’ll be dead before that person you arranged had come.” Lin Chujiu was so angry that she scolded and shoved him away. However, Xiao Tianyao didn’t even move a bit. Lin Chujiu wanted to push Xiao Tianyao again, but he caught her hands and said: “Lin Chujiu, don’t make a fuss. Benwang has arranged everything, you will not die.”
“But I was hit by the arrow.” Lin Chujiu pointed her finger at her chest: “… In here. I will die right away if that arrow went deeper a bit further! Do you know how desperate I was to survive that time? Do you know how much I hated you because you put me in that situation? Do you?”
Lin Chujiu was crying and her body was trembling in anguish. Xiao Tianyao felt pain in his heart, but he could only gently pulled her closed to his arms: “Benwang knows, benwang knows it. Zhou Si is dead. You no longer need to be scared.”
“You know? What do you know? You don’t know anything!” Lin Chujiu pushed Xiao Tianyao hard: “You don’t know how much I hate you! You don’t know how scared I was! You don’t know the feeling of being pushed to death! You’ll never know all of this!”
A series of questions were spewed with tears.
This was the first time Lin Chujiu released all of her emotions and questioned Xiao Tianyao.
“I saw the people in front of me fall one by one. I saw them fall while protecting me. I saw the arrow flying towards me. But, I couldn’t do anything. I could only stand there and wait for the arrow to hit me. But, when the arrow hit me, I couldn’t cry, even if I wanted to. But you’re saying everything was for me? For my safety, I become a bait and almost died. Tell me, should I accept that?”
For her to be safe, she must become a bait and be taken for granted?
For her to be safe, she must be pushed to death?
Well then, she would rather not be safe… …
Lin Chujiu did not only made Xiao Tianyao feel distressed but also made his heart fidgeting. Xiao Tianyao doesn’t really know how to comfort Lin Chujiu.
So, he only looked at her quietly, until she had cried enough. When Lin Chujiu stopped crying, Xiao Tianyao opened his mouth: “Lin Chujiu, things now have happened. What do you want benwang to do?” Whatever Lin Chujiu will say, he will do it.
“What do I want you to do? What can I ask you to do? You are Prince Xiao, the God of War. Even if you push me out to be a bait or use me as a human shield. I could only accept it, right?” Strength determines everything. She can’t run away, nor retaliates his will.
“It looks like you now understood everything.” Xiao Tianyao raised his hand and clumsily wiped Lin Chujiu’s tears: “As long as you become strong, it would be very easy for you to control benwang. Once you have that ability, benwang will let you use him as a bait or a human shield. The premise is if you can do that.”
“Reassured, I won’t hesitate to push you to death on that day.” Lin Chujiu pushed away Xiao Tianyao’s hand on her face and wipe her tears with her sleeves. But because she used to much force, some red mark was left on cheeks.
