Chapter 4.2: This Golden Finger Is a Bit Shameful
… … …
Yes… this woman… she was a rare one, an ephemeral existence. Her delicate face like a goddess from a painting, her clothing outlined her slim and shapely figure, and her skin a deep luscious white like the pure snow blanketing the grounds during wintry days.
It’s no wonder there were countless men in Xuanwu City and also parts of Nujiang County fighting against one another to court her. Her beauty, stature, and temperament simply wondrous.
It’s no wonder the previous him (now a dead soul) though dumb and mentally retarded was also obsessed with her.
Shen Lang was a mortal and she Xu Qianqian was the goddess he was willing to sacrifice his life for.
She’s not only beautiful in appearance but also exuded an elegant, tranquil aura. She looked nothing like a daughter of a mere merchant but like a daughter hailing from one of those noble families with deep roots and foundations.
She was also his wife.
Shen Lang blinked, eyes instinctively landing on her twin peaks. He can’t peer through her clothing, but regardless, his new powers worked together as one to gather information.
35C! Oh heavens…
Well… at least he knows he’s able to acquire key information of a woman’s body such as this.
Seeing Shen Lang for the first time in a long while, Xu Qianqian’s soft lips parted.
She’s surprised by the sudden change she saw in him. The man in front of her seemed different… like a new person. It looks like his spirit and temperance changed a bit too.
She then moved forwards and sat in front of him. The curve of her waist was charmingly endearing as her bosom bounced slightly.
“Shen Lang, it’s good that you’re okay now.” Xu Qianqian smiled softly.
Xu Qianqian was silent for a short moment, quietly gazing at his countenance.
“Shen Lang, your parents and your little brother visited our Xu Family House over the past few days. They seem to miss you so very much. Your mother even knelt in front of us begging to bring you back to them… it was very pitiable…”
He immediately heard her voice, one alluring as it echoed in his ear. He pretended not to hear and remained wooden.
Xu Qianqian’s brows tightened. Was the person she saw earlier a mere illusion? Seeing his dull and sluggish reaction, she can’t help but feel a bit irritated.
If she spoke such words to an average person, at least the other party would surely understand her intent, yet this guy… he was indeed a fool.
She’s not sure how to continue conversing with a man like him.
The door slammed open with blunt force. A man donned in heroic brocade walked in mightily proud. He came to Xu Qianqian, wrapped his arm around her waist, and kissed the back of her hair.
“Qianqian, talking to him is pointless. He’s retarded. How can he understand?”
He looked at Shen Lang and scoffed. The words spoken rather toxic and full of disdain.
“My name is Zhang Jin. So you’re not dead yet? Well, that’s good. It’s good that you’re not dead so you can use your paws to get the hell out of here and go back to whatever dog house you came from!”
Shen Lang looked up, eyes subconsciously landing on Zhang Jin. Hints of heroism could be seen in him, yet his eyes sang a different tune.
“Oh, it seems you don’t understand. I’ll help you understand. The Xu Family only took you in because you’re poor and saved my Qianqian from her ailments. Now that you’re in good health, you can get out. Shen Lang, you can’t match even a piece of her finger. From this day forward, the Xu Family will have nothing to do with you! Why? Because she’s going to marry me, you know?!”
Shen Lang averted his eyes and looked at Xu Qianqian, the woman in his memories who’d been kind, gentle, and perfect.
Xu Qianqian’s eyes grew bitterly annoyed. The situation happening before her violated the perfect image she cultivated. She had hoped to break off her relationship with Shen Lang in a more amicable manner, but who knew Zhang Jin had stabbed all hopes in a matter of moments.
Shen Lang’s eyes were fixed on her as if seeking for a definitive answer.
Xu Qianqian’s eyes softened when looking at him deeply. “You are very kind, but I am sorry… we aren’t suitable for each other.”
Shen Lang chose not to respond to this woman. He’s a handsome lotus. He can choose to keep mum if need be.
“Shen Lang, your parents miss you dearly, even begged to see you. You should go home.”
Again, Shen Lang said nothing.
Xu Qianqian’s heart grew ired by him. She said her words so clearly like the tranquil water, yet he still could not understand.
“Scram!” Zhang Jin harrumphed, beginning to grow impatient.
Xu Qianqian looked at Shen Lang kindly, yet her voice a bit colder than normal. “Shen Lang… I’m very grateful for your feelings towards me… but we really don’t fit. It is for the best if you go home. From this moment on… we are no longer husband and wife.”
He smiled softly. “Alright, I will go home. You take care.”
“You really can’t be saved, you fool.” Zhang Jin sneered before helping Xu Qianqian up. His hand roamed under her bottoms as the two walked out.
“Get out the house in half an hour else the consequences will be dire!” Zhang Jin’s echoing voice bellowed.
