On the way back, Jian Ran tried to communicate with Qin Yue several times, wanting him to know the seriousness of the situation. However, the moment she opened her mouth, she was immediately scared stiff by a cold glare from Qin Yue.
When they reached home, she tugged on his sleeves and carefully spoke: “Qin Yue, just listen to me this once. Don’t interfere in this matter. It’s not something that you can meddle in. “
Qin Yue looked at her, reached out, and cupped the back of her head, allowing her to look him in the eyes.
These few simple words seemed to carry an unending amount of power, as they poured into Jian Ran’s body bit by bit. Her pale white face also slowly recovered some color.
Jian Ran looked at her, pursed her lips, and said carefully: “Qin Yue, why didn’t you ask me why I was locked in the police station?”
Qin Yue caressed her face and said with a bit of heartache: “Jian Ran, no matter what the reason is, you just need to remember that I’m behind you.”
He had known about her since three years ago, and she could even be considered to be related to him.
That wastrel from the Gu family had injured her three years ago, and Jian Ran wasn’t even one of his people at that time. He didn’t care about it, and there was no need to interfere either.
Now that Jian Ran was his wife, he couldn’t tolerate anyone making her feel bad, not even if they were blood relatives.
“I …” There were many things hidden in Jian Ran’s heart. He wanted to say it to Qin Yue several times, but in the end, he couldn’t.
That incident three years ago had been a pain in her heart, and she didn’t want to show anyone the scars she’d had in the past.
She had always been trying hard to forget about the bad things from the past, trying hard to look forward. But now, what she needed to do was precisely what Qin Yue said.
No matter how big the Gu family’s power was, no matter what tricks Gu Nanjing could pull, as long as she could remember to fight with her troops, and water with her soil, the Gu family would not be able to cover the sky with one hand.
Jian Ran sighed silently, and then heard Qin Yue’s low and sexy voice say: “I told someone to prepare something to eat, go eat something.”
Jian Ran shook her head: “I’m not hungry.”
Qin Yue hugged her: “Then go take a bath.”
Jian Ran nodded and went back to her room to take a bath. When she came out of the bathroom, Qin Yue brought a bowl of ginger soup in: “This is for the cold.
Jian Ran took the bowl and gulped it down. After drinking it, he smiled gently at him. “Thank you.”
Qin Yue put the bowl to the side, pulled up the blanket and covered her with it. “It’s getting late, go to sleep. Don’t be late for work tomorrow. “
“Yes.” Jian Ran laid obediently under the blanket, blinking her watery eyes as she looked at him.
“I’ll accompany you.” Qin Yue laid down beside her. He held her hand with one hand and patted her back lightly with the other, coaxing her to sleep.
He was originally discussing a project at Lin City when he suddenly received a call saying that something had happened to Jian Ran. He rushed back without delay, but who knew that he was late, causing her to be locked up for many hours.
She was only a girl who was not yet twenty-four years old. Normally, no matter how strong she was, if she suddenly encountered something like this, she would definitely feel extremely flustered and scared.
But when she saw him, she didn’t shed a single tear. She even tried to smile and talk to him. The stronger Jian Ran was, the more Qin Yue wanted to protect her in his heart.
As her husband, he hoped that he could take good care of her and not let her suffer any more harm in this life.
After confirming that Jian Ran was asleep, Qin Yue quietly got up and went into the study room to make a call: “Liu Yong, settle this matter properly. Tomorrow, I don’t want to hear any gossip that I don’t want to hear.”
With that, Qin Yue hung up the phone, not caring if the person on the other end of the line had heard his words clearly.
Jian Ran was unable to sleep soundly, and was constantly shouting something in her mouth. Her small face that was the size of a palm was soon about to scrunch up into a ball.
She was dreaming again. This was a terrible nightmare that she had been having all these years.
In her dreams, a group of people were pointing their fingers at her, scolding her for raising such a shameless daughter. Even her elder sister’s man had to be taken away from her.
The person closest to her was by her side, but no one stood up to help her. Even more frightening was that these messages were personally sent by them.
She opened her mouth to explain, but no words came out. She could only look at the contemptuous gazes and listen to the curses coming out of her mouth.
“Of course …” It was her mother, who loved her the most, who called out to her.
“Mom …” Jian Ran spent a lot of effort before she managed to shout out that single word.
When she stretched out her hand to grab ahold of her mother, the next moment, her mother turned away with tears streaming down her face. “Since young, you have always been smart, smart, and self-reliant. Your sister …”
“What’s the point of saying so much? The Jane family does not have a useless daughter like you. ” The one who spoke was Jian Ran’s father.
Her father’s previously loving face now looked so unfamiliar, to the extent that Jian Ran seemed to have never met him before.
At this moment, she felt that the taut string in her heart had suddenly snapped and her heart had turned cold.
Was it because she had been a strong child since she was young, and because she had lost the heart of the Gu family’s eldest young master, that she was destined to be abandoned like an abandoned child?
Jian Ran suddenly felt cold, as if she was in a thousand year old ice cellar.
Just when Jian Ran felt that she was about to be submerged in ice water, a pair of warm big hands grabbed her hands and pulled her out of the ice cave.
Jian Ran suddenly opened her eyes and looked at a pair of eyes that were full of concern and tenderness.
“Q-Qin Yue?” Jian Ran who had just woken up from a nightmare couldn’t really tell which one was the real one and which one was the real one.
Perhaps, in this world, the existence of Qin Yue did not exist at all.
Qin Yue gently embraced her in his arms as he patted her back with his large palms. As if he was coaxing a child, he said, “How about I tell you a story?”
He knew she was having nightmares, and he knew better what she was dreaming about, but he said nothing, trying to distract her in his own way.
Jian Ran quietly leaned in his embrace and nodded slightly.
Regardless if this Qin Yue really existed or not, all he knew was that at this moment, he could make her no longer be so afraid.
Qin Yue rubbed her head: “Do you know why little rabbit’s eyes are red?”
Jian Ran had heard this story before when she was very young, but she chose to shake her head to hear what he had to say.
She had just finished shaking her head when she heard Qin Yue continuing in his sexy voice: “It’s because its eyes didn’t use the eye drops when they were dry, so it’s red.”
After hearing Qin Yue’s bullsh * t, Jian Ran couldn’t help but laugh. “Did you often doze off during lessons in the past?”
Qin Yue nodded and spoke in all seriousness: “It’s possible.”
