Under the sunlight, it reflected a dazzling light, as if telling the profound heritage of the Wen family’s century-old lineage.
Wen Ting Xuan followed her gaze and also gazed up at the plaque above. His heart had set off monstrous waves because of what she said.
“I just hope that dream is not true.” Wen Qi Qi murmured to herself.
Wen Ting Xuan came back to his senses. He thought about what had happened the night before and how his little sister had suddenly become a different person, and hesitantly said, “But it is true that Wen Ruyi wanted to harm you. That means that your dream is likely to come true.”
“This is also what I am most worried about.” Wen Qi Qi frowned and said.
“That’s why you tried your best to stop Grandmother from bringing back Wen Ruyi?” Wen Ting Xuan finally understood.
“Yes.” Wen Qi Qi affirmed, “Even though it was most likely just an absurd dream I had, I had to take precautions and would rather kill an innocent by mistake than let an enemy go. You are all my beloved family, and I can’t let any of you be in danger.”
A stirring and touching feeling arose in Wen Ting Xuan’s heart.
He had always thought that his little sister was heartless, but he had never imagined that in her heart, she cared so much about them.
“I know, don’t worry, with your second brother around, I won’t let those things happen. Just leave those things to me. You just live your life without worry.” Wen Ting Xuan stroked her head, and for the first time, spoke to her in a gentle tone.
His little sister just needed to live happily and carefree, and he would take care of all those bad things.
Wen Qi Qi blinked her eyes and nodded, “I know, and I believe in Second Brother. After all, it’s just a dream I had. It’s hard to convince people, and once it’s leaked, I’m afraid it will cause trouble.”
“I know, I won’t tell anyone.” Wen Ting Xuan assured her.
“Then let this matter be a secret between the two of us.” Wen Qi Qi said softly. Her eyes blinked, and she suddenly stretched out her pinky to hook his and shook it gently.
“Childish!” Wen Ting Xuan snorted coldly, but he had a doting expression on his face.
“Well, I have to go back first.” Wen Qi Qi said, “If there is any situation, you must tell me in time.”
“I know.” Wen Ting Xuan nodded and personally escorted her to the carriage.
When he saw the carriage drive away, Wen Ting Xuan could not help but sigh. No wonder his little sister had grown up a lot compared to the past, it was because of that dream.
At that time, she must have been very scared in her heart, but she could not say it out loud.
But for the sake of her family, she has done so much alone.
When he thought of how he used to tease and bully his sister, he felt a rare twinge of guilt. He decided in his heart that he would protect his stupid sister and not let her be hurt in the slightest.
Wen Qi Qi did not expect that her “heartfelt” words would result in her Second Brother’s decision to protect her.
Thinking about what happened today, she felt relieved.
At least, Wen Ruyi is not coming back for the time being, and now there would be people sent by Second Brother to keep an eye on her. She does not believe that Wen Ruyi could still gain wings and fly back.
In the original book, the first meeting between Wen Ruyi and Gu Heng was in the Wen Mansion.
The first time, Gu Heng came to see Wen Shi Qing to talk about political affairs, but in the garden, he met Wen Ruyi and fell in love with her at first sight and after he returned to the Palace, he issued a decree to make her the Empress.
Sorry for the late chapter, I’ve been out of the country and ran out of pre-translated chapters
