Tangled Fates - Chapter 2
When his family broke down, Shi Jia showed pity and took him in. After all, the only daughter of the Shi’s, Shi Huan, was always wrapped around the man.
However, they were murderers! They should die! Hate was spreading in the heart of Duan Yifei, who was ten years old.
At the age of fourteen, Shi Huan’s parents died, and the Shi Industry was taken over by the directors. A prominent family’s property got divided and vanished in a blink of an eye. Duan Yifei also had to leave a pitiful Shi Huan and find another way to live.
If not, how can he survive today? Duan Yifei warned himself. He was not as mean and shameless as Shi Jia. Since they raised him for four years, he would wait for another four years.
At that time, it was necessary to retaliate against the nuisance.
“Brother, I am hungry.” Upon entering the house, the nuisance stuck on him, displaying a pair of watery eyes, pitiful as if he had abused her.
Duan Yifei glanced at her, and said in a sullen voice: “If you’re hungry, make it yourself! What are you missing? Do I have the responsibility to take care of you?” He didn’t look at her reaction and slammed the door in anger.
Duan Yifei didn’t have to go to see her reaction; he could imagine it. She must be crying again. His heart flashed with worries, and he pushed the door open, he had a look of indifference and disgust. Sure enough, the hateful ghosts would cry, opening her floodgates. Duan Yifei had no choice but to go to the kitchen to cook something to fill her stomach.
He was born to feed her.
Recently, Shi Huan would start acting strangely in front of Duan Yifei. The purpose of her actions was so obvious.
Duan Yifei gritted his teeth. Revenge! Anyway, she likes him, and he would smash her face.
But why once he looked at her face, he would get lost?
Whenever she came near him, he would unconsciously hold his breath, and when she looked at him, he would try to approach her.
These were not his normal behavior.
Duan Yifei began to hide from her. At first, she asked him, but his reply was cold and apathetic. Later, she stopped asking. Sometimes she just looked at him and laughed. He didn’t read the embarrassment in her smile, but his heart would be inexplicably painful.
After a few years, he thought that life was getting calm. He didn’t forget his plans, but he would drag on for later.
Until the appearance of that man. The man that arrived in the name of her friend.
In the coffee shop, the man bumped into them. Her head was bowed, it could arise pity, and a desire for protection. The man placed his hand on her hand! They were still so close!
Duan Yifei got mad once again and threw a fit, saying the words that shouldn’t have been said. Hearing them, Shi Huan’s face turned pale.
The following days was filled with jealousy and quarrels. Shi Huan finally couldn’t stand it and asked him angrily, “What’s wrong?! Why did you never tell me? You always say whatever you want to!”
In the midst of anger, with his thoughts full of Shi Huan with other men, he said: “Because I hate you!”
“How I wished you to die right away, so I don’t need to see you again.” ‘I would no longer let you hurt my heart, no longer the need to go through this jealoisy, no longer to feel such pain.’
Shi Huan’s lips stiffened, “It’s true.”
‘What would have happened if I didn’t let her go?’
Upon seeing Shi Huan on the ground, covered in blood, Duan Yifei shook her, “Shi Huan… you get up, Shi Huan…” Her cold body shatters all of his hopes. It smashed and hollowed his heart. He didn’t cry. He just stared at her face. His eyes were empty and confused.
Did she leave him like this? Leaving him alone?
Shi Huan would never leave him.
He carefully cleaned her body and replaced her bloodied clothes with a wedding dress that was hidden behind in the cupboard. She was so beautiful, like a delicate doll on a large bed covered with petals.
There were a lot of things that Shi Huan liked hidden in his cupboard. When she begged to take a look in his precious cabinet, he ignored her with indifference. She would turn away in disappointment as he immediately took a key to lock the closet.
“Huan Huan…” He could feel that she was still with him, so close to him in his arms. Duan Yifei pinched her nose, “Huan Huan, get up.”
Her eyes were closed; serene and beautiful.
‘Look, I know that Huan Huan is just asleep.’ Duan Yifei smirked and gently stroked her face.
In the past, he would do the same when she was fast asleep, with caution as to not get discovered by her.
“Huanhuan, I will be with you right away. Wait for me.” Duan Yifei saw an illusion when he looked up. He saw her Huanhuan standing in front of the door and was staring at him.
Looking down at her face, he smiled.
We will always be together. It’s fine.
