Translator: Nyoi-Bo Studio Editor: Nyoi-Bo Studio
Ruan Zeyan tortured Ling Tianya again into oblivion. Ling Tianya felt she wanted to die after every one of his attacks, painful tears streaming down her face.
In Ling Tianya’s head, what they were doing should be saved for two people who loved each other, or at least were driven by lust.
Between her and Ruan Zeyan, the only thing left was hate.
She knew Ruan Zeyan must have hated her, but she didn’t know that the hate was that deep. It couldn’t be just because of her betrayal back in the day, could it?
It’s not like she didn’t want to explain herself, but she was aware that any explanation would mean very little to Ruan Zeyan.
She didn’t pretend to know what happened to Ruan Zeyan six years ago, nor what he must have been through in the past six years. What she did know was that after she left, the Ling, Guan, and Li families all spent every effort to ruin her reputation. They dumped every bit of dirt they could on her.
She did indeed betray Ruan Zeyan and got engaged to Li Chengfeng.
There was nothing she could do to turn things back. She didn’t know how to explain things to Ruan Zeyan.
Ruan Zeyan lifted his head and stared into her eyes, “You want to explain? Why don’t you explain then!”
Yes, she could explain…Tears rolling out of her eyes, “If you had trusted me, would I have to explain?”
Perhaps, this was what really Ling Tianya cared about.
Ruan Zeyan was taken aback. He lowered his head and watched her in silence. Ling Tianya welcomed the gaze fearlessly.
She thought Ruan Zeyan was going to say something, but he didn’t. Instead, he started to thrust into her with even greater intensity.
Ling Tianya felt dizzy, her whole body soaked in sweat. Just as she was about to lose consciousness, he stopped.
Ruan Zeyan slipped out of the bed and went straight into the bathroom, paying no attention to the exhausted Ling Tianya.
In a hazy state, Tianya heard Ruan Zeyan walk out of the bathroom and put on some clothes next to the bed. Outside of the door he spoke to Mandy, “Watch her closely, don’t let her play any tricks!”
Mandy didn’t have to see the inside of the room to imagine what had just happened. She couldn’t help but clenched her fists, replying cordially to Ruan, “Yes, sir. What if Miss Ling hunger strikes for real?”
“Then let her starve to death.” Ruan Zeyan’s voice sounded detached, but he seemed to mean what he said.
Mandy’s mouth curved upward, “Understood.”
Knowing this, Mandy was clear about the status of Ling Tianya in Ruan’s heart. She was bothered, even scared, by the fact that he rushed back after hearing the news of Ling Tianya’ hunger strike. She was worried that this woman was special to Ruan Zeyan.
It turned out she was nothing but a sex toy that he could just throw out after getting bored with her.
In the following days, Ling Tianya changed her toon and became extremely agreeable. She ate her meals diligently and stayed quiet afterwards without making any fuss. She didn’t even seem bothered by the contempt and insult in Mandy’s words.
Life on Huxin Island was bearable without Ruan Zeyan’s presence.
A week had passed when Mandy received notice from Du Gang that Ruan Zeyan was coming. She then made an uneasy realization that she had not seen Ling Tianya at all that day.
Inside the mansion, all the servants, including Mandy, stood in two lines. Nobody dared to make a peep.
Ling Tianya was gone and nobody on the entire Island even noticed!
