Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
However, Duan Ling Tian did not have the intention to give a damn about Di Jue at the time being.
He instantly looked at Ke’er whose face was already drenched in tears and smiled. “Ke’er, I understand your intentions, but don’t forget that you’re no longer alone now. You still have our kid in your womb.”
As Duan Ling Tian was speaking, he looked at Ke’er’s stomach that bulged out gently with tenderness in his eyes.
‘Unfortunately, I’m afraid that I, Duan Ling Tian, will never be able to see my kid anymore… And Little Fei’er and the kid in her womb too,’ Duan Ling Tian sighed in his heart as he was filled with regrets.
However, he knew that now that things had come to this point, he was powerless to salvage this desperate situation even though he had remarkable strength.
Di Jue was just incredibly powerful.
Even though he had his Senior Brother Bai Li Hong, he was still no match for Di Jue too.
Upon hearing Duan Ling Tian’s words, Ke’er became silent right away.
“Young Master, I understand.” When Ke’er saw the tenderness in Duan Ling Tian’s eyes, although she agreed to him in response, she had already made up her mind that she would instantly kill herself to catch up with her Young Master the moment her child was born.
If her Young Master was gone, there would no longer be any meaning for her to live in this world.
Seeing how Ke’er was so sensible, Duan Ling Tian exhaled a sigh of relief.
Looking at Feng Wu Dao and the rest, Duan Ling Tian said, “Leave, and help me take care of Ke’er.”
Before they managed to return to their senses, a chilling spine-tingling iciness resonated from the sky without warning.
“You’re actually pregnant?” The icy voice resonated from the sky. It was so cold that it seemed to freeze the air into ice.
“Who’s that?!” Di Jue’s face turned grave right away. From the beginning till the end, he actually had not noticed any presence. He knew very well what this implied.
This person’s strength was in no way inferior to his.
A gust of bloodcurdling cold wind blew past and in the next instant, a figure that was entirely shrouded in black clothing emerged before the eyes of the crowd. The figure had a devilish body that was full of seduction.
However, although many men were present at the scene, nobody bothered to be concerned about this at all. Instead, everyone was shocked by the veiled woman’s aura.
“It’s you!” Duan Ling Tian’s turned grave. “Chi Mei, you followed me?!”
Duan Ling Tian could not help but be taken aback to see Chi Mei there. However, when he had returned to his senses, he could roughly make out some things.
Besides, the words uttered by Chi Mei just now was obviously targeted toward Ke’er. She used a tone full of accusation.
Seeing how Duan Ling Tian actually recognized this woman who emerged out of thin air, Di Jue’s expression changed again.
However, when he noticed the thick scent of gunpowder between Duan Ling Tian and her, he also noticed that this woman must not be here to help him.
The moment he thought of this, he breathed a sigh of relief.
Although he was not afraid of this woman, he was still not willing to pick a fight against her unless it was completely necessary because she gave him a sense of danger.
However, in the face of Duan Ling Tian’s query, Chi Mei merely ignored him. Instead, she looked at Ke’er who was looking at her in a daze. At the same time, she pulled off the veil that covered her face up and revealed that exquisitely unparalleled beautiful face that could topple a nation.
Just as Chi Mei revealed her face in front of the crowd, other than Duan Ling Tian, everyone including Ke’er was dumbfounded as they were shocked by the sight of her.
This was because Chi Mei’s face was exactly identical to Ke’er’s.
Other than the difference in temperament, there was no other difference in their characteristics.
“W-Who are you?!” Looking at Chi Mei’s face, Ke’er felt like she was looking into a mirror. When she saw this woman who was exactly identical to her, her voice also started to tremble slightly.
She had no idea why but when this woman just appeared and had not revealed her face yet, a sense of warmth had already risen up from her heart.
That feeling was strong and even she herself had no idea why would she have such feelings.
Yet, right now, looking at her identical face that she revealed when she took off the veil, Ke’er also noticed that this woman might have something to do with her past that she was completely not aware of.
“I’m your elder sister.” When Chi Mei was facing Ke’er, her icy face could not help but be washed with warmth too. When she was speaking to Ke’er, her voice also turned gentle.
She really wanted to scold this long-lost younger sister of her, but she had no idea why when she was faced her face-to-face, other than pity and love, she had no other emotions in her heart. All of the anger seemed to be thrown to the back of her head.
When they heard Chi Mei’s words, it was not only Ke’er who was struck dumb, even Duan Ling Tian was astounded too.
Since when did Ke’er have an elder sister?
Duan Ling Tian looked at Ke’er in confusion, he had never heard her mention that she had an elder sister.
When he saw the blank look on Ke’er’s face, he also realized that she had no idea that she actually had such a sister too.
Duan Ling Tian had no doubt towards Chi Mei’s claim that she was Ke’er’s elder sister. After all, both of them were just extremely identical, which was usually the characteristic of twin sisters.
Of course, there was no absolute in this world. There might be two people who were exactly identical to each other in this world and shared no blood relations at all.
However, now that Chi Mei had declared herself as Ke’er’s sister, it was obvious that this matter was not that simple anymore.
At this moment, Feng Wu Dao and a few others could not help but look at the Nangong Twins.
They looked at the Nangong Twins and then turned back to Ke’er and Chi Mei again, thinking that the latter two really might be twin sisters.
“Impossible… I don’t have an elder sister. I only have a mother but she’s already dead. Mother’s already been dead long ago.” Ke’er shook her head and refused to believe Chi Mei’s words. Even though she also felt that Chi Mei was very cordial, she had no way of accepting the fact that she actually had an elder sister in this world.
“Even though I don’t know who the ‘mother’ you mentioned is, I just want to tell you that the biological mother of you and I is still breathing and alive. All these years, there wasn’t a time when she would not think of you,” Chi Mei told Ke’er.
Still alive and breathing?
Ke’er was completely dumbstruck now.
She kept telling herself not to believe Chi Mei. Nevertheless, her heart could not help but believe Chi Mei’s words.
It was not only because of the fact that Chi Mei was exactly identical to her but mainly because she could sense that blood was thicker than water between Chi Mei and her.
Chi Mei gave her an inexplicable sense of warmth.
“That time, you were kidnapped and disappeared without a trace. Other than Master, even Mother also sent out many people to look for you too, but because of your special identity, they didn’t dare to make this news widely known although they kept looking for you,” Chi Mei said, “All these years, they have never stopped looking for you. A few years ago, I also started to look for you everywhere based on that little weak relation that you and I have as twin sisters. As the saying goes, ‘heaven helps those who help themselves’. I finally found you before they did.”
When Chi Mei mentioned “they” in her final sentence, a hint of dread could be heard in her voice.
“It’s a good thing that I’m the one who found you first. Otherwise…” When Chi Mei reached this part, she cast a glance at Duan Ling Tian and the murderous intent in her eyes turned apparent as though she was about to devour somebody.
This man had actually impregnated her sister!
Did he not know that this would be extremely dangerous to her sister?
When Duan Ling Tian realized that Chi Mei might really be Ke’er’s elder sister, he felt thrilled for Ke’er too. At the same time, he was curious about Ke’er’s true identity and origin.
However, now that he noticed the murderous intent from Chi Mei’s eyes, he could not help but felt chills travel all over his body.
He was still Chi Mei’s brother-in-law no matter what, so why did she look like as though she wanted to kill him?
Duan Ling Tian remained puzzled after pondering over it again and again.
“Sister, follow me… I’ll protect you with all my might and won’t let you receive any harm.” Far from the stern murderous intent that she held when she looked at Duan Ling Tian, Chi Mei’s tone was filled with unparalleled gentleness when she looked at Ke’er, making her appear completely different from before.
“E-Elder S-Sister…” Ke’er had no idea why but Chi Mei’s every move could make her feel great emotion.
Now that it had come to this point, she had no idea why was it so easy and natural for her to call out “Elder Sister” as though there was no restraint at all.
When Chi Mei heard her calling “Elder Sister”, the last ounce of coldness in her eyes finally dissipated.
Taking a deep breath, Ke’er mustered her courage and told Chi Mei, “Elder Sister, I can follow you, but you must bring Young Master and the rest along.”
“Sister, it’s for you and your child’s sake that I didn’t kill him… It’s impossible if you want me to save him.” Chi Mei’s tone was resolute and decisive, leaving no space for discussion.
When Ke’er heard her, her expression changed right away. “Elder Sister, if you don’t bring Young Master and the rest with you, I won’t leave either!”
Chi Mei sighed heavily after hearing Ke’er. Without any other warning, Ke’er suddenly passed out in just the blink of an eye and Chi Mei held her up in a timely manner.
“Ke’er!” Upon seeing this, Duan Ling Tian’s face intuitively turned grave right away. However, the moment he realized that Ke’er had merely fainted, he could not help but breathe a sigh of relief.
Right at that moment, the purple bird by Chi Mei’s shoulder finally spoke, “Elder Sister, let me do this kind of heavy labor.” The moment the words left its mouth, it transformed into a young girl in purple and she helped Chi Mei hold on to Ke’er. While she was doing that, she appeared to be very eagerly attentive.
“It’s her!” When Duan Ling Tian saw this purple-clad girl, his eyes narrowed right away.
This young girl was not unfamiliar to him. It was none other than the Young Miss who had suddenly come out after the Moon Illumination Sect’s Hunting Assessment had ended and tortured Vice Sect Leader Zhong Huo before following them back to the Moon Illumination Sect.
“As expected, she’s indeed related to Chi Mei.” Right then, the utter confusion in Duan Ling Tian’s heart was finally solved.
The timing of the purple-clad young girl appeared was indeed untimely.
“Zi’er, let’s go!” Casting a nonchalant glance at Duan Ling Tian, Chi Mei motioned to the purple-clad young girl and proceeded to leave.
Of course, Duan Ling Tian would not let Chi Mei take Ke’er. Even though she did not say much earlier, from her words, she also implied that Ke’er was in a dangerous situation. At once, he flew out and blocked Chi Mei’s path.
