Chapter 17: You Were Reborn for the Sake of Vengeance!
“Pft!” Gu Yunlan laughed out loud.
“What are you sneakily laughing about?” Hearing the giggles, Xuanyuan Ying turned around when the opportunity arose, and looked at her puzzled.
“I was wondering if you did that on purpose or not? How can it be a coincidence? As soon as she comes out, you’d just leave?” Gu Yunlan was delighted by just thinking about An Jiaona’s face as it twisted in anger.
“Was there? I didn’t even do it on purpose!” Xuanyuan Ying raised his eyebrows, yet there was a hint of laughter in his eyes. He loathes pesterments the most. The girls in the past weren’t like this, how is it that after he woke up from sleeping, they had become so shameless?
“I reckon that she’s more pissed this time than before. What you had said was right, play them to death!” Gu Yunlan was so delighted her eyes narrowed into slits.
“You think you won this time?” Xuanyuan Ying raised his eyebrows, asking, “If she tells your father, saying that you’re fooling around with this senior and bullying her, how would you say your father would react?”
Gu Yunlan froze, right! If she went to Father to complain, how will Father react?
Xuanyuan Ying watched her coldly. Even if she lives through her life again, she might never encounter any sinister people in the end. Suddenly he thought that he was quite cruel. Turning her into a bloodthirsty devil, is that really a good thing?
Seeing her frowning and pondering, Xuanyuan Ying couldn’t help but say, “Humans are selfish, you can totally push the responsibility onto me. And also, you were reborn for the sake of vengeance. To be compassionate and hesitant will only be cruel to yourself!”
Gu Yunlan stared blankly. All of what he said isn’t wrong, she definitely did get reborn for vengeance. Even if this life is accompanied by hate, she still must make them regret being born.
If even the odd situation of her being reborn could happen, what other monstrosities are there? This world doesn’t need weaklings, she needs to be powerful!
“Alright, it’s fine as long as you understand, there’s no need to think too deeply. What you should be thinking about right now is tormenting your little sister and cultivating properly.” Xuanyuan Ying saw that her eyes no longer held any puzzlement. He let out an inward sigh of relief, yet still felt a bit depressed.
“Saying so, how did you know that I wanted a car?” Gu Yunlan blurted out, having noticed the heavy atmosphere within the car.
“The girls these days really are shameless.” Xuanyuan Ying answered irreverently, and he slowed down while saying, “I had already bought this car earlier, it just got sent over from that side today!”
Only after Gu Yunlan froze in shock did she respond; does the shamelessness include her? This damn man!
“Don’t hate me! Be careful for if this senior were to be unhappy, humph!” Xuanyuan Ying said menacingly. Ever since they exchanged blood, this girl had been acting more and more unrestrained.
Gu Yunlan focused an eye on him, saying, “Are you also attending the banquet?”
“This senior doesn’t have the time to attend things like a banquet. Recruitment will start tomorrow, and later training will become necessary. It’s convenient since I came over to chat with you, you should train a bit when you have time.” Xuanyuan Ying grasped the steering wheel, turning right. The car immediately swerved right, exiting the market.
“En!” Gu Yunlan nodded her head, not saying anymore. The car went silent for a period of time.
Gu Yunlan quietly watched as the streets outside got left behind. His driving skills are pretty good; it doesn’t seem as if he is a novice, yet he stills goes to recruit soldiers?
“We’re here!” Xuanyuan Ying’s voice resounded in her head. Gu Yunlan snapped back to attention just to see Zi Luolan accompanied by a servant girl next to the gates, waiting to greet her.
Gu Yunlan immediately straightened her posture, smoothing out the wrinkles on her clothes. She smiled wanly at him, then opened the car door to step out.
“I’ll come pick you up in a bit!” Xuanyuan Ying said softly before she closed the door.
Gu Yunlan paused in surprise, pick her up? Not waiting for her to respond, the car had already driven away.
“Yunlan!” A pleasantly surprised voice sounded from behind her, Gu Yunlan turned around slowly.
“Luolan, long time no see!” Gu Yunlan smiled wanly, revealing an appropriate smile. She is both grateful and respectful towards Zi Luolan.
“Yi? That person sending you just now was… The great General?” Zi Yunlan looked eager for gossip.
“We bumped into each other just as I came out, so I insisted for him to send me!” Gu Yunlan said carelessly. She lifted her eyebrows, “What? You plan on making a guest chat with you next to the gates?”
“Let’s go! Let’s go in!” Zi Luolan tugged on her arm, promptly pulling her into the Zi Residence.
“Just letting a servant girl bring me in is fine, don’t you have other guests?” Gu Yunlan watched her hesitantly.
“No problem! You are Zi Luolan’s most important guest! Don’t forget, you’re the Oldest daughter in the Gu Family!” Zi Luolan answered, hiding a smile behind her sleeve.
