Heroine Saves A Gentleman - Chapter 151
Chapter 151: Don’t Go (2)
Half of her face was swollen from the slap. No matter what, she shouldn’t have left the residence to visit someone. However, for her daughter who was about to get married, she endured her shame and brought her entire secret stash of money to leave in the middle of the night and secretly come to find Zhou Xiaoxiao. It was so she could give her daughter some dowry.
What a useless and pitiful woman. Zhou Xiaoxiao softly sighed in her heart.
Her husband must be the culprit behind the slap on her face. That Gongsun Zhen didn’t dare to do anything in the residence, but he took out his anger on his weak wife.
Zhou Xiaoxiao suddenly understood why Gongsun Yu had high expectations for her spouse.
If I came from a family like this, I probably wouldn’t like a scholar that appeared to be proper and polite only on the surface either.
The second morning, Zhou Xiaoxiao personally applied makeup for Gongsun Yu.
“I hate to marry a beautiful woman like you off.” Zhou Xiaoxiao pinched Gongsun Yu’s face. While applying makeup, she shook her head and sighed.
Gongsun Yu lifted her face and sat in front of her. Hearing this, her thick eyelashes slightly trembled and her tears fell down her face.
“Don’t cry, don’t cry. You’re going to ruin your makeup.” Zhou Xiaoxiao frantically wiped her tears. “Don’t be scared. You’ll live a good life after you get married. If senior brother dares to bully you, just tell me. He’s not my match anymore. I can casually beat him down.”
Gongsun Yu snorted and held Zhou Xiaoxiao’s arms.
“I won’t let anyone bully me. I’ll definitely live a good life.”
She wore a smile on her tear-filled face; she looked beautiful as if she was reborn.
Zhou Xiaoxiao was very glad that she had intervened back then and protected Gongsun Yu under her wings, helping her survive the mad and difficult time period.
Clamors filled the streets and chests of dowry were lined up on the next few streets.
The noisy and bustling procession headed out of the capital.
Zhou Xiaoxiao sent Gongsun Yu a few kilometers out of the city before saying goodbye and heading back to the capital.
During the journey, they passed by the riverside.
Thinking of the extremely terrifying experience of how she fell into the river, Zhou Xiaoxiao sighed with feelings and couldn’t help but stop.
The Yellow River was like a huge dragon resting on the earth.
Zhou Xiaoxiao stood by the shore and glanced at the river water. Suddenly, she thought of something and took off the dragon scale on her neck.
A strange light flickered on the surface of the dragon scale and there was immediately a cyan-colored crack on the surface of the water. The crack was like a vertical eye and it gradually widened just enough for a person to pass through.
Through the cyan-colored light, Zhou Xiaoxiao vaguely saw her family’s living room. It seemed to be late at night there. The light in front of the living room’s door was lit and emitted a warm glow.
Her mother was used to leaving the light on for her whenever she wasn’t home.
Mother is waiting for me to come home.
Zhou Xiaoxiao’s heart felt bitter.
She couldn’t help but reach towards the world.
She felt someone calling her.
Zhou Xiaoxiao looked back. Yu Xingzhi was not far from her, hurriedly getting off his horse and rushing over.
He did so hastily which led him to almost trip and fall.
“Xiaoxiao.” Yu Xingzhi was running rapidly. “Don’t go. Xiaoxiao, don’t go!”
“Don’t go, don’t leave.” He wore a pale face and reached for her with trembling hands. In a careful tone, he said, “Please, please don’t go.”
Zhou Xiaoxiao’s heart felt bitter for a moment before it ached. While holding onto Yu Xingzhi’s cold fingertips, she looked over at the warm light.
She sunk into a difficult situation.
She couldn’t help but tighten her grip on the dragon scale; the edge of it had slashed her palm. The red blood dyed the dragon scale’s light and it dripped into the river.
A cold light rose from the surface of the river and immediately drowned the two people holding their hands tightly.
Speaking of, they were back in the modern world.
