Chapter 1247: Why Did You Abandon Him and the Child? (27)
Li Mengyao’s head buzzed and her mind was left with nothing but emptiness.
Back then, when she was pregnant, her son was born on the same day as Su Qian Xun’s son. Hence, after all these years, she had used her son as an excuse to ask Lu Yanzhi out for a meal because she had saved Xiao Bai before. That included feeding Xiao Bai before and treating Xiao Bai as her own.
Thus, Lu Yanchen agreed to bring Xiao Bai out for a meal but then Xiao Bai wasn’t willing to eat a meal with her. With this, Lu Yanzhi immediately found an excuse to back out.
Did he really have no feelings for her?
Li Mengyao’s lips trembled and she asked softly, “Recently, I always feel that someone is following me and it scares me. Big Brother Lu, Xiao Bai is with his aunt now, so can you accompany me tonight?”
Back then, she used her son to exchange for Xiao Bai because Lu Yanzhi was indebted to her. Then again, because they had to save Xiao Bai, an important character from the organization that year, Luke Ke escaped.
Luke hated her and Lu Yanzhi very much. Before he escaped, he had threatened that he would definitely come back and take revenge on them.
On the other hand, Su Qianxun was very lucky. After she left that place, she could still live her normal life.
However, Li Mengyao couldn’t. She had to hide her identity and was in constant fear that Luke might find out where she was and take revenge on her.
“For all these years, I was really scared. If it wasn’t for you by my side, I really wouldn’t know what I should do,” said Li Mengyao as she looked into Lu Yanzhi’s eyes with her eyes turning red.
“You don’t have to worry. That person is now in Cambodia. He cannot come back to China.” Lu Yanzhi had an expressionless face as he continued, “As for the person following you, I have already sent someone to investigate. I have also sent someone to protect you secretly and hence, I can ensure you that you are absolutely safe.”
The success of the mission back then was all thanks to Li Mengyao’s cooperation, thus it was only reasonable that he had to protect her and ensure her safety.
“Big Brother Lu, don’t you want to know why I risked my life back then?”
Lu Yanzhi’s eyes were very cold and solemn.
Li Mengyao had her sight fixed on his eyebrows as she affectionately confessed, “Because the person I am cooperating with was you.”
Lu Yanzhi pursed his lips. “…”
“Six years ago, when you called out to those people bullying me, I fell in love with you. As such, I am willing to protect Su Qianxun for you. I am also willing to help you lure the snake out of its hole. After you saved me from the magic cellar, I had fallen deeply in love with you but I know that I am not worthy of you,” said Li Mengyao as her tears flowed down her cheeks.
She took in a deep breath and continued on, “After all these years, I have tried to forget you but my heart is hard to control. I was like a lunatic falling in love with you, caring for you. Six to seven years already passed but my love for you hasn’t faded away one bit and instead, it grew. I know I won’t be able to marry you or make you fall in love with me. I know I am… I only hope that you can accompany me when you are free even if it’s just a meal with me.”
Lu Yanzhi stopped his car by the roadside.
He turned his head to look at Li Mengyao and said, “You don’t have to say all this. I have given you my word that I will ensure your safety. I won’t go back on my words.”
Li Mengyao could feel her heart breaking into pieces as she bit her lip. “I would still say it because I am afraid that you would ignore me forever!”
She laughed bitterly. “Do you despise me? That’s right, how could you possibly like a woman like me? It is impossible! If that’s the case, why did you save me that time? You should have left me there to die!”
