Chapter 1754: Let’s Break Up!
Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
In the sports car, a trace of sadness appeared on Ximen Jin’s face when he saw Long Mei leaving quickly.
He got out of the sports car, his tall body leaning against the front of the car.
He lit a cigarette and stood under the dim street lamp, puffing out smoke.
Long Mei brought Xiao Ying to the hotel room.
Under Xiao Ying’s comfort, Wan Bao’s mood slowly improved.
She stared at Xiao Ying unblinkingly with her big and moist eyes. “Mommy, will Daddy come back?”
Xiao Ying kissed Wan Bao’s forehead. “Yes. Listen to Auntie Mei and rest early, okay?”
Wan Bao nodded obediently.
Xiao Ying placed the baby on the bed and patted her chest lightly.
Wan Bao’s eyelids became heavy. When he was about to fall asleep, he said softly, “Mommy, when Daddy comes back, I want to tell him that I love him.”
Seeing that Wan Bao was finally willing to accept Long Ming, Xiao Ying was extremely touched and tears welled up in her eyes. “Daddy will be very happy to hear you say this.”
After Wan Bao fell asleep, Long Mei asked the nanny to watch over her while she sent Xiao Ying downstairs.
Xiao Ying told Long Mei about Tang En dragging Long Ming into the crack in the ground. Long Mei was extremely worried. “Do we have to find the real Young Master to save Brother?”
Xiao Ying nodded with a dark expression.
When they arrived at the entrance of the hotel, Xiao Ying saw the man leaning against the front of the car, smoking. She glanced at Long Mei. “Mei’er, I’ll find a way to find Young Master. If you don’t want to see Ximen Jin, you can go upstairs first!”
Long Mei mouthed the name silently.
So, he was the Second Young Master of the Ximen family.
He was not Sun Jin.
Although Long Mei had already experienced the pain of falling into the abyss these past few days, her heart still throbbed painfully when she saw this man appear in front of her again.
There were many men pursuing her, but she only had feelings for him.
She had originally thought that he was the only person who would never hurt her in this world. However, she was wrong. He had hurt her terribly!
Long Mei pursed her lips tightly. She heard herself saying hoarsely to Xiao Ying, “Sister-in-law, I still have something to say to him.”
Xiao Ying nodded and stepped aside.
Even though it was late at night, the hotel entrance was still crowded with people.
But at this moment, it was as if they were the only ones left in this vast world.
Long Mei’s expression was calm and one could not tell if she was happy or sad. However, the moment Ximen Jin saw her, he unconsciously gripped the cigarette between his fingers tightly. He did not even know that the hot ash had landed on the back of his hand.
He watched as she walked toward him step by step, his throat turning extremely hoarse. He clearly had a thousand words to say to her, but he could not utter a single word.
Long Mei stopped in front of him and took out a receipt from her pocket.
He looked down. It was a delivery receipt.
“I sent the things you gave me to the Sun family.”
Ximen Jin looked at the receipt she handed over and his heart tightened, his blood turning cold.
The high spirits and wildness from before seemed to have disappeared. At this moment, he was like a child who had done something wrong. He called out to her hoarsely, “Mei’er.”
Long Mei threw the receipt at him and took a step back, putting some distance between them.
Long Mei did not want to think about how she had survived the past few days. She had also thought about how she would question him hysterically if she could see him again. Why had he been so cruel to her?
But at this moment, she could not ask anything.
It was meaningless!
Long Mei looked up at him quietly. “Ximen Jin.”
She called him Ximen Jin.
In the past, she would sweetly call him ‘Ah Jin’, ‘my Ah Jin’, or ‘Mei’er’s Ah Jin.’
She already knew everything.
Ximen Jin started to panic. He had a feeling that he was going to lose her, and that he would never be able to reach out to her again.
“Mei’er, I’ve let you down. My family’s lives are in his hands. I had no choice...” He originally did not want to explain to her that he had his reasons, because he had already hurt her. But hearing her call him Ximen Jin coldly, he really panicked.
Long Mei looked at the anxious man with red eyes and a trace of mockery appeared in her eyes.
Perhaps, he truly regretted it.
Perhaps, he was really panicking.
But what was the point in that?
From the moment he lied to her and used her, they could no longer be together.
Long Mei had not expected herself to be so calm. Perhaps, her heart was already numb from the extreme pain!
There was no slapping, arguing, or questioning... In her eyes, there was only calmness and coldness.
It seemed like a few centuries had passed since the incident at the Duke’s palace.
She looked at him calmly. “Ximen Jin, let’s officially break up. From now on, let’s never meet again!”
Long Mei turned and left.
Ximen Jin wanted to pull her back, but he slowly retracted his hand.
It was impossible for them to return to the past.
He did not have the right to stay by her side anymore.
Ximen Jin closed his eyes, letting the sharp pain in his heart spread to his limbs and bones.
After saying a few words to Xiao Ying, Long Mei entered the hotel.
Xiao Ying still had something to do with Ximen Jin, so she walked up to him.
Ximen Jin’s eyes were completely red. Even the veins on his forehead were protruding out.
Xiao Ying could feel his reluctance and love for Mei’er.
However, he had hurt Mei’er too deeply!
“Young Master Ximen, if you want to find your brother, you have to think about which islands your family has?”
Ximen Jin adjusted his mood.
Now that the Ximen family was in chaos, he could not be dispirited and depressed.
Looking at Long Mei, who had entered the hotel and disappeared quickly, Ximen Jin stubbed the cigarette in his hand and threw it into the rubbish bin.
He said to Xiao Ying, “Get in the car. Let’s return to the castle first.”
Xiao Ying got into the car.
When they arrived at the castle, Ximen Jin took out a laptop and marked out all the islands he knew.
Xiao Ying looked at the islands that Ximen Jin had marked out. There were hundreds of them, and that did not include those that he did not know about.
If this continued, it would be like trying to find a needle in a haystack.
Xiao Ying’s slender fingers supported her forehead as she walked to the French windows.
She closed her eyes and tried to recall the details of Tang En bringing her to the villa on the island.
But at that time, she had been locked in the villa and could not even go to the beach. There was the sea all around her but she really could not think of anything special.
The more she could not think of anything, the more anxious Xiao Ying became.
She did not know how Long Ming was doing now. He was alone and there were several bodyguards who had fallen down with Tang En. Would Long Ming be a match for them since he was injured?
She had to think quickly. There had to be something different.
Suddenly, something flashed in Xiao Ying’s mind and she opened her eyes. “I remember.”
