The Unfulfilled Desire - Chapter 2
I Don’t Know You
Maybe when people are about to die, there will be many charming dreams, and that is why he saw her again. At this time and place, he shouldn’t have met her. Because, previously, they met for the first time a year later when his assassination mission failed. He was hunted down, seriously injured, and was rescued by her, and then he fell in love with her. He loved her for a long time.
Five years ago, for his own private possession, he took her away and imprisoned her on the day of her marriage. She had been thinking of that person for five years, and his love was defeated. He was originally a frenzied person, so he treated her with good times and bad. He couldn’t wait to hold it in his hand when he got better. When he hated it, he would abuse her in every way in the bed, and eventually forced her to secretly take the poison and disappear.
She wanted to die, all the tactics had been conspired for a long time, and once she decided to escape, it was a big move. He could not save her, he could only watch her die in his arms. He held her corpse for three days. He regretted it, but it was too late to realize it. In this world, only life and death could not be changed.
He kept on mumbling for three days, as long as she woke up, he would let her go, as long as she could live well, he would do anything. Maybe it was his sincerity that really moved God after he died of illness, he woke up and realized that he had been reborn again.
He opened his eyes, and the time was actually seven years ago. They both hadn’t met that year, and everything could be repeated. So he decided to not pester her in this life. The promise he made to God must be kept, otherwise, he might repeat the same mistakes.
‘I don’t want to meet her, even if I put all my body and mind in martial arts, it is still difficult to forget her. It is hard to get rid of the suffering of lovesickness.’ In order to avoid the catastrophe again in this life, he devoted himself to cultivating, and he had already done well. His assassination organization, the Red Fox Gate, had a booklet that records the identities of all employers and “bait”. He secretly followed, secretly recorded, and only waited for an opportunity to expose it to Quan Wulin in the future.
It was hard to cover fire with paper. After his deeds were exposed, although he had prepared in advance, he still couldn’t match the power of that house. He was hunted for hundreds of miles, and he ended up where she was.
At a glance, it felt just like an illusion. How could there be a miracle of survival for a seriously injured person hiding in a deep mountain in an old forest? Soon his body would be eaten by wild animals, be buried deep in the forest floor, and be turned to dust. Maybe his rebirth at this time was just a dream, and if everything would be in the dream, it would be great.
Zhao Jianlong was very curious about the man in black. Besides, she really regarded him as a lifesaver, so she would come to see him and take care of him sometimes. The man in black often frowned and sweated profusely. It didn’t take long for her to wipe the sweat. It seemed that he was having a nightmare. He would sometimes violently call out someone’s name, which happened to be the same as her own. But to her surprise, she answered inadvertently once, and the other party became quiet immediately, and her brows opened.
Later, she got used to him calling her. Maybe this “Long Long” is a girl he likes or his relative.
Because he often sweated profusely, and his body was weak, if the wind and cold entered his body, then even the gods would not be able to save him. Not long ago, Shan Zheng got married to Wang Yigang, the guard of the escort, and it was difficult to contact other help. These days, Zhao Jianlong wiped him off. Anyway, she had seen it before, and there was nothing to avoid now. She was a little shy at first but got used to it later. To her, he was just a wood without a spiritual aura at best.
This day, as usual, she drew up a basin of hot water, took off his jacket, untied the straps, and touched the scab on it. Once it hardened, it would not be so troublesome to wipe. Zhao Jianlong focused on the wound under his hand and did not notice the blinking of his eyelashes and the shaking of his fingers.
When Shen Yue opened his eyes, he couldn’t adapt to reality for a long time, especially the warm touch on his body. He couldn’t understand what he was seeing. He couldn’t believe that it was her who wiped his body. Zhao Jianlong, who had been hiding from him, hated him so much that she wanted to tear him apart… Even if it was due to a grievous injury, she had never touched his body, just occasionally looked twice, that’s all.
Just when she was about to get up and wring the towel, she saw his body move. She was frightened when she was pushed all of a sudden. Fortunately, she reacted a little faster and twisted her body slightly. She only pressed his arm, but the towel flew out. She raised her head to look at him, and his extremely complicated gaze successfully drew all her attention away. It took a long time to realize that she was close to him, and quickly backed away, extremely embarrassed.
Shen Yue closed his eyes, and his pale face was covered with some scabs, covering his original handsomeness. He wanted to move, but he didn’t have any other feelings except for the pain. He didn’t even feel the closeness of her just now. The pain spread from the whole body, and the most painful thing was his heart, which was not an exaggeration. When she rescued him, it was because the mission failed. When she rescued him after rebirth, it was because of betraying the Red Fox Gate.
Obviously, they can’t be together, why did God ridiculously arrange for a reunion? Was God trying to test whether he could keep his promise?
“You…” Zhao Jianlong didn’t know how to call him for a while, “Senior, are you in pain?”
Shen Yue did not respond, even if he had the strength to speak, he did not dare to respond. The heart that was sinking in the mud, he dared not pull it out. His fierce love would only create an abyss for her, so let him fall into the abyss alone.
“I’ll help you with the medicine, you won’t feel so painful afterwards.” He looked so painful and uncomfortable, Zhao Jianlong forgot what had happened just now, she got him into bed neatly, and picked up the towel, and placed it around his head.
His Long Long, no, how long had it been since Zhao Jianlong spoke to him so softly. In addition to speaking coldly, she punched and kicked him. His skills were good but he couldn’t bring himself to hurt her.
Shen Yue’s eyes were a little itchy as if being touched by someone, Shen Yue opened her eyes quickly, seeing that she was still recklessly dipping the ointment with her fingers and then smeared his body. How could she do this kind of thing? How long has he been in a coma?
Shen Yue had never compared the previous injury with the current injury. It was completely two degrees. Before, he could take care of himself, but now he was half a breath away from death.
Zhao Jianlong knew that he was looking at her, and his eyes made her feel strange every time, she felt a little scared and wanted to escape, and wanted to understand those emotions. She deliberately didn’t look at him. He couldn’t speak anyway and still couldn’t move. She should treat him like he was a wood as usual.
After applying medicine on him, she was ready to step back to find her second uncle. She raised her head and was stunned. He was staring at her intently, his eyes were red, tears slid down, and there seemed to be a thousand words contained in those eyes.
Zhao Jianlong’s heart pounded with nervousness, and asked in a low voice, “Senior, did I hurt you?” She raised her handkerchief to wipe it but felt it was not right, so she let it go. “I’ll call Second Uncle.”
Seeing her expression and how she ran out in a hurry, it was similar to how she avoided him in the past. He was sad but relieved that Zhao Jianlong might be afraid of him due to his scars that time could not erase.
The next day, Zhao Jianlong came outside the room again holding the paulownia basin, but pulled down her raised hand, hesitating. Shen Yue was reluctant to take care of him now that he was awake. She was still young and unmarried. She couldn’t stand touching a strange man, even if it was to apply the ointment. But his wound still needed undressing and there was too much physical contact, it was time for other maids to take care of it. Today was the last day she would do this, then she will go to discuss with her dad to find a reliable person.
Thinking of this, her heart was quite settled, and she knocked on the door. Naturally, no one would respond to the door. She adjusted her clothes outside the door before walking in.
She didn’t know if he was asleep, but his eyes were closed and his face was calm.
Zhao Jianlong put down the basin and crouched on the side of the bed, but there was no response.
It should be fine as long as he is asleep, she thought.
But then he suddenly opened his eyes when she was about to untie the belt around his waist.
“Senior…” Zhao Jianlong was frightened again, looking at him innocently. On weekdays, she was hearty and generous, and she didn’t know what she was afraid of, but facing him, her heart was inexplicably restless.
Shen Yue didn’t want her to look at him this way, and he didn’t want her to see his own body that was dying, and hate him even more. Even if he was reincarnated, he couldn’t let her down. Maybe she shouldn’t have him in her fate, he shouldn’t have appeared.
Zhao Jianlong thought she had misheard, and the Senior was not seriously injured, so he should have no strength to speak.
“Senior? What did you just say?”
“Go out.” Shen Yue closed his eyes. At this moment, he wanted to stand up, but at most he could only move his arm slightly. Except for the pain, his whole body felt extremely heavy, and the injury was more serious than he thought. Last night, he awoke fully rested, and the qi in my body was scattered and chaotic, like a person with no internal power.
Zhao Jianlong didn’t know that his body didn’t feel the pain at all. He had gotten used to such kind of pain due to his training. Meanwhile, she was shocked, thinking of what happened yesterday, thinking that she really hurt him. “Senior, maybe I am not accustomed to martial arts, but I do know how important it is.”
Shen Yue was tormented in her heart, and it turned out that not seeing is better than seeing. Fortunately, his body was not under his control, otherwise, his violent way of venting emotions would be unable to restrain himself and he would hurt her again.
She was talking about him at this time as if he was a stranger, irrelevant of love or hatred. This was already the best situation.
She waited for a while, and when there was no answer, she retreated.
She didn’t know why she felt a little disappointed in her heart. She obviously didn’t want to come over. Maybe her expectations were not consistent. She thought the first thing they said was that he would be curious about where he was and their identities, and then she would tell the truth and then ask him for his identity.
Experts are always withdrawn. He doesn’t like being disturbed by others.
Zhao Jianlong explained the matter to his father and second uncle and sent a clever maid over there that night, but that maid was still driven out.
Zhao Changshan and Zhao Changlin went to the room to express their condolences, but he said something that shocked everyone.
