Let the villain go - chapter 72
“Don’t say that, Uncle Guo, I have to practice more because I am not as good as him,” Chu Qianxun put her injured and bleeding arm on the countertop and applied medicine.
In Chu Qianxun’s mind, no matter whether it was a friend, a couple, or any relationship, if the levels of the two people were too different, it would be difficult to maintain an equal relationship for a long time.
She had never been as active in wanting to improve her abilities as she was now. She wanted to become stronger. This wasn’t for Ye Peitian, but for herself in order to be able to live as casually as the others, and dominate her own life. She could live the days how she wanted, and protect the people she wanted to protect.
“Qianxun?” Ye Peitian’s voice came from outside the house.
Chu Qianxun was startled. She quickly put her injured arm behind her. She hid her hand, but was too late to catch a drop of blood from her arm. The red drop of blood splashed to the ground.
Ye Peitian stepped into the store, reached out to pull her arm behind her back, and glanced in silence.
She clearly couldn’t see his expression, only to see his lips slightly squeezed together. Chu Qianxun felt that he was angry for no reason.
“It’s just a little skin trauma, it doesn’t matter, it will be fine after a while,” Chu Qianxun hastily concealed.
“I was just walking around the base, and there were no powerful monsters around.”
“I am idle. It’s better to practice my hands.”
“Monsters of this level are meaningless to you, so I didn’t specifically tell you.”
Ye Peitian led her to the house without saying a word, and Chu Qianxun continued to explain while walking. She didn’t know why she was feeling somewhat guilty.
After entering the house, Ye Peitian asked Chu Qianxun to sit by the bed and sat down opposite her. He flipped his hand and pulled out the short blade that he carried with him.
Chu Qianxun held her wrist, “No.”
Ye Peitian turned his face and his silver eyes turned towards her.
“No,” Chu Qianxun said very firmly, with a tone that he couldn’t refuse, “I’m not hurt, why should you hurt yourself to treat me.”
She knew that Ye Peitian’s recovery ability was unusually strong, and he wanted to shed enough blood by at least cutting his palm as deeply as the previous one.
“Look, it’s really just a minor injury, and it’s just a little bit broken. It didn’t even hurt my bones. I’m a fifth-order saint anyway, and it will heal soon.”
Maybe she felt her tone was too serious, so she softened her tone, “Or, you help me get some medicine.”
Ye Peitian froze for a moment, and finally compromised. He pulled out the medicine from his backpack, gently pulled Chu Qianxun’s injured arm, cleared the wound, applied the potion, and wrapped a white bandage around her arm.
“If you want crystals,” he said.
“It’s not crystals that I want. I want to be stronger,” Chu Qianxun made a gesture.
“Stronger, stronger, until one day we can fight side by side and I no longer have to rely only on your protection.”
Ye Peitian stopped talking. His palms were steady, his fingertips were slightly cool, his movements were so detailed and cautious, as if he was afraid of hurting Chu Qianxun.
Such a wound was just a minor injury that Chu Qianxun was accustomed to. Usually when she suffered such a degree of injury on the battlefield, she would be lazy to even lick it.
But when someone took this matter seriously and treated it with such care. She suddenly felt that the wound seemed to become sympathetic. The kind of pain that could have been ignored, as Ye Peitian’s finger touched, How did it become so sensitive and clear?
“Peitian, one thing, I always wanted to tell you,” Chu Qianxun looked down, focusing on her wounded hand.
“When I first met you, I took your blood without your permission. Although it was to save my best friend, it was wrong. I should apologize to you.”
Ye Peitian’s fingers holding the white bandage suddenly stopped, and after a while, he said softly, “What’s the matter… there is no need to.”
“No, I should say sorry to you, and everyone who has done this should apologize to you.”
Ye Peitian’s Adam’s apple rolled, and his thin lips slightly opened. Although he quickly looked away from her, the steady hands, his irrepressibly shaking revealed his uncontrollable emotions.
Chu Qianxun knew his past but she could never really understand what kind of scars hell-like torture left in his heart,
She took Ye Peitian’s hand, pulled him over, took him by the shoulder, and gave him a hug.
Until he felt his tight back muscles slowly relax, Chu Qianxun heard a low voice coming from the head resting on her shoulder.
“Demons like me, isn’t this what I deserve?” The voice was very soft, with a sense of sadness and grievances that weren’t suppressed.
Chu Qianxun gently caressed his back, “Even if you don’t understand it now, you need to understand.”
“You are not wrong, the wrong are those who have lost their hearts, are greedy and sinister.”
