God of Dragon - chapter 56
Yan Xiangma trotted behind Li Sinian. With a sweet smile on his face, he said, “Sister Sinian, where are we going?”
“Going shopping,” Li Sinian said grumpily while running.
“Haha, it turns out that this is a date. Although our relationship is developing too fast, extraordinary people do extraordinary things. You and I are extraordinary people. Even if you want to hold my hand or kiss me on the street, I can accept it.” Yan Xiangma looked like he was willing to go into boiling water and walk through fire for love.
“Hold your hand? You can hold your right hand with your left hand. I took you out to go shopping because there are so many people on the street, so you dare not to touch me. Who is willing to stay alone in the yard with you? Do you really think I am stupid?”
Yan Xiangma looked stunned as if he had been struck by lightning. “How dare you doubt my character? How dare you insult my personality?”
“I’m not familiar with you at all. Why can’t I doubt your character? It would be damned if I believe in your character.”
“Li Sinian, you should know that as a well-known gentleman of Jiangnan City, I can do anything. You humiliate me like this. Aren’t you afraid that I will take revenge?”
“What will you do?” Li Sinian stared at Yan Xiangma with vigilance. If this bastard dared to do anything, she would punch him and shout loudly with her hands covered on her chest. “Hmm, do I need to lower my neckline a little? Will it be too embarrassing? I’m a decent girl.”
Yan Xiangma stared at Li Sinian fiercely and swallowed his saliva several times. When Li Sinian began to worry that he would be choked to death by his spit, he finally said with a rough voice, “I’m seriously warning you, don’t do it again.”
“Sinian…” Yan Xiangma came over to her again and said with a smile, “In fact, I’m here for…”
“What kind of person is Cui Xiaoxin?” Li Sinian interrupted Yan Xiangma and asked.
“What?” Yan Xiangma was taken aback. He was still thinking about how to express his feelings. The change of the topic was too fast and he was not used to it.
“I’m asking you, what kind of person Sister Xiaoxin is?” Li Sinian asked, “I know that her background isn’t simple. Am I right?”
“That’s right,” Yan Xiangma said nodding.
“Of course, it was not simple. The Cui Family was a very important branch of the imperial political circle. Except for the Song Family, which had the title of ‘the Xifeng Academy and a prime family’ and had stood still for thousands of years, no one could take on the Cui Family. Even the Lu Family, who had generations of generals, could not compete with it. As the most direct descendant and one of the most outstanding women of the Cui Family, how could she be a nobody? Even I, her cousin, had to take care of Cui Xiaoxin. When my father talked to her, he also regarded her as a special person who was not just a junior of the Yan Family.”
“Who is she?” Li Sinian asked as she stopped and blinked her innocent and lovely big eyes at Yan Xiangmawith a face full of curiosity.
“Why should I tell you this?” Yan Xiangma said, “This is our family’s secret, and we can’t casually tell others. Who do you think I am? Do you think I will tell you everything when you use the beauty trick? Try me if you have the ability. Let’s see if I am a coward…”
“Brother Xiangma, I beg you. Tell me…” Li Sinian stamped gently and begged with a pleading face.
“I’ve said that I can’t say…” Yan Xiangma swallowed his saliva again and said, “In fact, you can guess it yourself without me. Xiaoxin, my cousin is from the Cui Family in Capital Heaven…”
“Cui Hongyan?” Li Sinian said a name that resounded throughout the empire.
“He is her great-grandfather.”
Li Sinian’s small face was bitter and sad, as if she had heard terrible news.
“Sinian, what’s wrong with you?” Yan Xiangma asked.
“My brother has no chance at all, right?” Li Sinian asked.
Yan Xiangma sighed softly and answered, “In fact, from my personal standpoint, I support Muyang and Xiaoxin to be together. Although Muyang is a little dark and ugly, he is kind, and he also has a deep affection for Xiaoxin…”
“You are ugly. My brother is a hundred times more handsome than you,” Li Sinian interrupted Yan Xiangma with dissatisfaction and said, “Answer my question. Is there any hope for my brother and Sister Xiaoxin?”
“No, there isn’t.” Yan Xiangma answered directly.
“Not even a hint of hope?”
“Sinian, you should know that even if there was a little bit of hope for Muyang, the situation would become more dangerous,” Yan Xiangma said seriously, “Why is your brother safe now? Why does no one come to find you? It is because everyone knows that those two are impossible. They have no hope. If the existence of Li Muyang made people think that he was dangerous, do you think he would still be alive?”
Li Sinian felt bitter in her heart and felt aggrieved for her brother.
However, this was a fact that she found hard to change.
How could a young man from an ordinary family be married to an offspring of Cui Hongyan, who was a powerful man on the continent?
After understanding this problem, Li Sinian turned around and walked back.
“Hey!” Yan Xiangma shouted from behind. “Li Sinian, where are you going?”
“Are we done shopping? Didn’t we just come out? I have something to say, but I haven’t said it yet. Li Sinian… ”
“Let’s talk about it next time.” Li Sinian did not look back but perfunctorily waved at Yan Xiangma.
“Next time?” Yan Xiangma smiled sharply. Looking at the girl’s beautiful back as she went away, he whispered, “Silly girl, I’m afraid I won’t have the chance to say it next time.”
Yan Xiangma only said that Cui Xiaoxin was waiting by Sunset Lake, but did not tell him the exact position where she was waiting.
Sunset Lake stretched for hundreds of miles and then connected to Taihu Lake. If he wanted to find a girl in such a vast place, wasn’t it like picking up pearls in a sea of sand?
Fortunately, Li Muyang wasn’t stupid now. He went straight to the place where he had experienced the last spring outing. As expected, he saw Cui Xiaoxin sitting under a willow bush.
“Cui Xiaoxin!” Li Muyang shouted.
Cui Xiaoxin turned to look at Li Muyang and smiled at him.
Cui Xiaoxin grinned. Li Muyang felt that every piece of his skin and every hair on his body was full of joy.
It was just like what the famous poet in the empire Guo wrote, “I was happy to see you cry for several days. I’ve been sad to see you smile for years.”
No, no, no, it was the opposite. It was “I’ve been sad to see you cry for several days. I was happy to see you smile for years.”
Li Muyang felt that those words were really about his heart. Why did that poet know so much about human nature?
If you liked someone, you were willing to bear all of her pain. You would accompany her to look up at the starry sky with a black face at a 45-degree angle. If you liked someone, you couldn’t help but enlarge her happiness countless times. When her smile still remained at the tip of her eyebrows, you would already be so happy that you couldn’t stand straight.
Li Muyang walked quickly to Cui Xiaoxin and sat down. He said with a smile, “This is the first time we have met each other.”
Fearing that the term “met” would make Cui Xiaoxin unhappy, Li Muyang added, “Although we met each other a long time ago, it’s true that we’ve really known each other this day, right?”
“That’s right. It’s the first time we’ve known each other.” Cui Xiaoxin looked at the blue lake water and said, “If it wasn’t for that conversation, I wouldn’t have known that there was a boy in my class who had such a sharp sense of speech.”
“In fact, I was not like this before.” Li Muyang grinned, revealing two rows of white and neat teeth. He said, “They were right. I was really a waste at that time.”
“I can see it,” Cui Xiaoxin said. “You were very different at that time…”
She turned around and looked at Li Muyang’s face and eyes, saying, “At that time, your eyes were dull, and there was no focus on anything. And your face was only confused, not as smart and confident as it is now. You have changed a lot. If I hadn’t been standing by your side all the time, I would not have been able to connect that man with the present you. Even your appearance has become… more charming.” She swallowed the word “handsome” back and looked at Li Muyang’s clear and deep eyes, which made her somewhat absent-minded.
“So, I’m really grateful.” Li Muyang looked at Cui Xiaoxin and said, “It’s you who let me regain the motivation of learning. It’s you who helped to tutor me and told me not to give up at any time.”
“Compared with your life-saving grace, these are nothing,” Cui Xiaoxin said.
“Never mind.” Li Muyang was ready to change the topic. This was the secret skill of attracting girls that his younger sister, Li Sinian, taught him. When the communication between them became more boring or heavier, he should quickly change it and find some topics that girls were interested in. “I haven’t seen you for a while. Have you been doing well recently?”
“I’m fine,” Cui Xiaoxin nodded and said, “When I read books, drink tea, and walk under the jacaranda, I always think about the past and the future. It’s quite fulfilling.”
“That’s very nice.” Li Muyang was yearning for it. If he could accompany her when she read books, it would be like the time when she was tutoring him. If he could fill up the cup for her when she was drinking tea, it would be like the time when she was tutoring him. If he was able to walk side by side with her under the jacaranda, just like he imagined, how wonderful would that be?
Cui Xiaoxin turned her face and no longer looked at Li Muyang’s shining eyes. “I’m going back to Capital Heaven. I’ll leave in two days.”
“Okay. I’ll pack up and go with you,” Li Muyang said with a smile.
