A Star Reborn: The Queen’s Return - chapter-1384
Chapter 1384: Gu Jinxiu’s Plea
Xia Yingluo got up and walked towards him step by step.
Her stiletto heels stopped one step away from him. With her ten-inch heels, she was almost as tall him. She gazed coldly into his eyes. “Why did you use ‘Tidal’ magazine to help me? Also, why did you interfere in the promotional work for ‘Star Wars Era?’”
After learning about what happened in ‘Tidal’ magazine, she sent someone to investigate and found out that Wei Lingnan had a lot of involvement in it.
Surprisingly, no one found out.
Wei Lingnan was slightly surprised. He did not expect her to look for him regarding this. After returning to the city, he did secretly intervene a lot because he knew that she needed energy. Even if she was not willing to accept his help, he was willing to secretly help her and the World Tree in her survive difficult times.
“I should be doing those things.” He slightly lowered his head. “I apologize for not telling you in advance.”If he told her in advance, she would definitely tell him to get lost.
Thinking about this, Wei Lingnan’s expression darkened.
Xia Yingluo sneered. “You apologize for not telling me in advance? I think it’s still not too late yet. Didn’t you do this on purpose to make me find out myself and use this as an excuse to make me forgive you?” Since the trust between them was lost, it was natural for her to think this way.
She stared at him intensely. Even though her tone was accusatory, deep down, she wished that he would deny it.
She did not know what sort of mentality she should have. Her secret desire burned inside her like a flame, and it made her restless.
However, she was destined to be disappointed.
Wei Lingnan did not bother to explain. He only said in a hoarse voice, “I’m sorry.” What could an explanation do? It would just add insult to injury. He lifted his head to look at her, hoping that his humble appearance could gain her mercy. “Your majesty, please allow me to stay by your side and help you regain your energy. The energy consumption of the World Tree is too great, and it’s too hard for you to do this on your own.”
Her heart ached and her voice turned colder. “You still think you can stay beside me after what happened? I asked you to come here today to tell you to stay away from me! The further the better! In the future, you are not allowed to interfere in anything related to me!”
She wanted to stop him from interfering in her career again.Although life would be difficult without Wei Lingnan’s help, it was better than facing him every day. Xia Yingluo did not want to see this man in front of her every day and did not want him to appear around the people close to her. Every time she heard his name, her heart would ache. It would take a very long time for her heart to heal after a million-year love affair.
“Ah Luo!” Wei Lingnan anxiously yelled.
“This is an order.” She looked at him coldly. “Are you going to defy me?”
A small breeze swept a few green leaves towards them and the air was filled with the fragrance of flowers that bloomed in the late spring.
The two of them faced each other quietly. Both of them knew that if Wei Lingnan wanted to, he could defy his weak queen’s order given his strength today. However, Wei Lingnan did not do that and only bowed his head.
He was clear of the consequences of defying her orders. Both of them would become distant and he could not bear for that to happen.
Xia Yingluo coldly snorted. There was a slight disappointment in her heart. It was so strange. Wasn’t this the outcome she wanted? She forced herself to ignore her complicated feelings, turned around and was about to leave.
“Ah Luo!” Wei Lingnan grabbed hold of her from behind.
She was unstable and fell into his arms. Before she could break free, his kiss had already overwhelmed her. It was intimate, long and almost suffocated her. After a long time, he finally let her go. Before she could stand up straight, she gave him a tight slap. In horror, her fingertips had transformed into sharp claws. After this slap, five deep blood-stained marks appeared on his face.She gasped for air and glared for him. “How dare you!”
He was silent but did not regret what he did.
He just missed her too much.
His yearning for her was deep in his bones. At that moment when she spun around, he was seized with a sudden impulse to kiss her. He had waited for her for millions of years. Now, she was just right in front of him, but because of his past mistakes, she was out of reach. He was really afraid that once she turned around, things would never be the same. Now that she did not even need his help, how else could he get closer to her?
Wei Lingnan was heartbroken as he looked at her deeply. Blood flowed from his cheeks like a stream and soon, half of his body was stained red.
Xia Yingluo’s heart ached again. She did not intend to hurt him like this, but who knew that her claws would appear uncontrollably? However, she already injured him and could not say that she was sorry. She resisted the urge to help him with his wound, turned around and walked away.
“Ah Luo.” Behind her, he called her again. “Don’t go…”
Seeing that she was getting further, he suddenly remembered something and asked, “How should I deal with Gu Jinxiu?”
Xia Yingluo finally remembered that Gu Jinxiu was still tied up on the ground.She turned around and saw the woman lying on the ground. The woman looked at them in horror and her eyes seemed to be begging them for mercy.
Gu Jinxiu knew that she had made a grievous mistake. One hour earlier when Wei Lingnan broke through the window and kidnapped her from her bedroom, she knew that things were bad. That man looked at her like she was a dead body. She had pleaded with Wei Lingnan. “Nan, I love you! I am your Ah Luo! Why are you suddenly doing this to me?”
“You are not Ah Luo.” Wei Lingnan’s voice was like ice. “You lied to me for so long and tried to frame the true Ah Luo, so you will get what you deserve.” Since that day in the laboratory when Gu Jinxiu tried to kill Xia Yingluo, Wei Lingnan never bothered about her again. He locked himself in the laboratory and came to the conclusion that Xia Yingluo was the true queen. After that, he relentlessly tried to look for Xia Yingluo, secretly helped her with her film’s publicity and did not have time to deal with Gu Jinxiu.
However, no matter what, Gu Jinxiu must be given the most severe form of punishment.
Now, with Xia Yingluo’s order, he guessed that she was eager to punish Gu Jinxiu herself.
However, Xia Yingluo just glanced at Gu Jinxiu reluctantly. “Take your trash and scram! You should solve the problems that you caused yourself!”
“Miss Xia! Your majesty! I beg you. Please help me!” Gu Jinxiu acted like she saw a ray of hope and cried. At the end of the day, she only offended Xia Yingluo and it seemed like Xia Yingluo was not even interested in getting even. Perhaps if she continued to beg, there was some hope for her to dodge the bullet.
Gu Jinxiu was very aware that Wei Lingnan could not wait to turn her into a corpse. If he did not want Xia Yingluo to punish her, who knows how many times she would have died already. However, now Xia Yingluo told him to get lost with her. If she left with Wei Lingnan, things would not be good for her.
Her life depended on Xia Yingluo!
Gu Jinxiu begged harder.
