Chapter 1753: She Was the One He Felt Most Sorry Toward
Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
Everything had happened within a few seconds, so quick that no one could react.
By the time Xiao Ying rushed toward the crack, Tang En and Long Ming were no longer there.
Xiao Ying fell to her knees.
She hit the floor hard. “Long Ming, Long Ming!”
No one responded.
The people Long Ming brought also came to Xiao Ying’s side, wanting to find the switch. However, no matter how hard they searched, they could not find it.
Xiao Ying’s eyes were completely red.
She stood up and looked at Ximen Jin.
Ximen Jin frowned, his expression frozen. It was obvious that he was also shocked by what had just happened.
He knew that his brother had set up an inescapable net and countless traps in the castle.
But he had never seen it before.
Tang En actually knew what he did not know.
It was clear how much his older brother trusted him!
Several bodyguards had fallen down with Tang En and Long Ming.
However, there were still many bodyguards who had not. They stood on the spot and looked at each other.
Tang En’s substitute had already been subdued by Ximen Jin. He ordered his bodyguards to deal with Ximen Jin. Xiao Ying immediately ordered Long Ming’s men to help Ximen Jin.
Although she was very angry and hated Ximen Jin for kidnapping her, they had to stand on the same side now!
“Is a fake substitute worthy of your protection? My brother is still the master of this castle!” Ximen Jin subdued Tang Eng’s substitute and looked coldly at the bodyguards who were against him. “If you surrender now, my brother can still save your lives when he comes back. If not, you will end up like him!”
Ximen Jin immediately stabbed the fake double.
The bodyguards looked at each other. Now that they did not have a leader, they did not know who to listen to.
The elders were all smart people. Seeing Ximen Jin mention Ximen Chang, they asked carefully, “Second Young Master, is Young Master still alive?”
Ximen Jin was not sure if Ximen Chang was still alive. At this moment, a cold voice sounded. “I’m sure that your Young Master is still alive!”
Ximen Jin looked at Xiao Ying.
Xiao Ying was wearing a set of pajamas. She had come out in a hurry as she had not gotten any time to change. Her long hair was draped over her shoulders and her expression was cold. She exuded a convincing dominance.
Ximen Jin met her eyes for a few seconds, then looked at the elders. “She met my brother!”
When the elders heard that Ximen Chang was still alive, they all knelt down. “Second Young Master, we only obeyed Tang En because we were being threatened. If Young Master comes back, please give our family the antidote. We will definitely serve Young Master loyally in the future!”
Once the elders knelt down, the bodyguards also knelt down.
The words ‘Ximen Chang’ were very intimidating!
Ximen Jin waved his hand. “Get up!” With that said, he walked to the crack, where Long Ming and Tang En had fallen in, and looked at the elders. “Does anyone know how to open this trap?”
The elders all shook their heads.
Earlier, Xiao Ying had helped Ximen Jin and he wanted to help her, but no one knew how to open the trap.
No one had expected things to develop to this point.
The only thing they could do now was to find Ximen Chang quickly and open the trap to save Long Ming.
But only Tang En knew where Ximen Chang was.
With so many things happening in one night, Xiao Ying was hit with a splitting headache.
But she could not stop. She had to think carefully about the location of the island.
It was very likely that Ximen Chang was still locked in the dungeon by Tang En.
However, there were many islands in the world. If she wanted to search them one by one, it might take her until her next lifetime!
Xiao Ying glanced at Ximen Jin. “Do you know how many islands your family has?”
Ximen Jin pursed his lips. “I know of a few, but I’ve always been overseas. I only returned to the country a while ago when something happened to my family.”
This was also why Xiao Ying had never seen Ximen Jin when she had been brought to the castle in the past.
“Tell me about the islands you know.” Xiao Ying wanted to say something else, but Mo Tian, who had sent Wan Bao to the hotel, came over and handed Xiao Ying her phone.
“It’s from Miss Long.”
Hearing the words’ Miss Long ‘, Ximen Jin’s expression changed slightly.
He stood closer to Xiao Ying, wanting to hear Long Mei’s voice.
Ever since the banquet at the Duke’s palace, they had never met again.
Seeing Ximen Jin moving toward her, Xiao Ying guessed his thoughts and she quickly took a big step back.
He had already hurt Long Mei, yet he still wanted to eavesdrop on her voice? How could he be this shameless?
When Ximen Jin saw Xiao Ying’s sharp gaze, he put his hands in his pockets and looked into the distance with an unnatural expression.
Xiao Ying walked to the side to answer Long Mei’s call and her voice softened. “Mei’er.”
“Sister-in-law, how’s the situation? After Mo Tian passed Wan Bao to me, she kept crying out for her daddy. I can’t seem to coax her...”
Wan Bao kept crying. She must have been shocked.
“Mei’er, where are you now? I’ll come over.”
Long Mei gave her the hotel name.
Xiao Ying told Mo Tian to bring people to search around the castle to see if they could find any switches. Mo Tian knew that Xiao Ying was worried about the King and the little Princess at the same time. He nodded and said, “Don’t worry, Miss Ying. I will definitely search carefully.”
Xiao Ying walked out of the castle.
Suddenly, a cool sports car drove over and stopped beside her.
The window was wound down and a handsome face appeared.
“I’ll take you there! It’s not easy to get a taxi here.” Ximen Jin said.
Thinking of Wan Bao, Xiao Ying hesitated for a few seconds before she opened the car door and got in.
Along the way, Ximen Jin and Xiao Ying remained silent. When they were about to reach the hotel, Ximen Jin said to Xiao Ying, “I’m very sorry for taking you from the Duke’s palace the last time.”
“You should feel sorry for Mei’er.” Xiao Ying looked at Ximen Jin’s handsome side profile and frowned. “She loved you so much, but what she got in return was your betrayal.”
Ximen Jin’s appearance made Xiao Ying see her past self.
She did not pity Ximen Jin, just like how she hated herself for treating Long Ming.
Ximen Jin did not defend himself. He parked the sports car at the hotel entrance. When Xiao Ying got out of the car, he saw Long Mei carrying Wan Bao to the hotel entrance and he could not take his eyes off her.
She had lost a lot of weight.
Xiao Ying went forward and took Wan Bao out of Long Mei’s arms. Long Mei was about to enter the hotel with Xiao Ying when she suddenly felt a gaze on her. She looked up toward the hotel entrance.
Seeing a cool sports car parked at the entrance of the hotel, her eyebrows twitched slightly.
Seeming to have sensed something, Long Mei turned around and walked toward the hotel quickly.
