Chapter 274: Heartbreaking Love (1)
Because his voice was too low, she couldn’t hear any emotions; however, he felt like his heart was being slowly torn apart!
He forced himself to calm down and to contain his emotions!
What she meant was that he had to give up his feelings for her and that he was not allowed to kiss her! What she meant was that he will remain as the most important person in her life and she won’t leave him, but their relationship wouldn’t proceed any further than that!
He will never become her lover!
Gong Jue relaxed his hands and clenched them in a fist again, even Gong Yimo could sense how he was silently trying to suppress his emotions as she patiently waited for his response.
His rationality told him that he should agree, doesn’t he just have to suppress his feelings for her? Pretend that he doesn’t love her anymore? He was able to hide his feelings for her for so many years! Didn’t she promise that she will never marry anyone and would stay with him forever in this lifetime? Wasn’t that enough?!
However, his emotions were screaming and raging inside of him, threatening to tear everything apart!
He couldn’t bear to give in! He doesn’t want to be her relative; he wanted more! He wanted her to love him, to take the initiative to kiss him! He wanted to become her man!
His longing heart slowly broke into pieces! He had endured and suppresses his feelings for countless restless nights, did he need to continue to endure it? How much longer must he endure it?
His gaze made Gong Yimo’s heart alarmed, she had no idea what Gong Jue was thinking at this moment. If she had known, she would’ve definitely escaped immediately!
Gong Jue didn’t respond for a long time, when Gong Yimo thought that he wasn’t going to answer, Gong Jue smiled.
His smile was extremely bitter, and his heavy voice made it seem like he was unable to breathe.
“Okay… I promise you.”
Gong Yimo blinked her eyes.
“You will also give up on your feelings for me, right?”
Her words were like steel knives as they suddenly stabbed his body one by one, making him bleed from all over his body! However, he still needed to respond with a smile, so he slowly smiled.
“Yes… including… letting go of my feelings for you…”
Let go? No, he will never let it go! Even if the whole country was smashed into pieces, even if his feelings for her go against the morals of the world, even if he dies, he will never let go!
Gong Jue’s face became stiff and his heart became numb from all the pain, otherwise, how would he had been able to calmly say those words?
However, Gong Yimo still didn’t feel reassured and she hesitatingly said, “We will be siblings from now on?”
A fishy sweet taste filled Gong Jue’s mouth, but Gong Jue still resisted it and smiled.
“Yeah, we will be siblings in the future.”
He felt like he was slowly dying from a thousand cuts as he said those words, yet he still lightly said those words.
Gong Yimo was perfectly satisfied by his response because he had never lied to her. She originally wanted to give him a hug since they arrived at a consensus, but she changed her mind when she realized that he was still at a sensitive phase.
In addition, she began a deep self-reflection on her past; she didn’t really pay attention in the past since they were both young. Now that she was fourteen years old, even though she could still throw a tantrum and act spoiled, she forgot that in another year, she would be considered as an adult in ancient times. She would be a young lady, so it was best if they had less physical contact in the future.
As a result, she withdrew her outstretched hand, pretending that she was only stretching her arms as she lazily yawned.
“Then… do you… feel a little better now?
His heart disease still needed some heart medication and as long as she slowly gets him to understand his true feelings, he ought to get better slowly.
Gong Jue smiled palely, and his ink-black hair contrasted beautifully against his bewitching appearance. Under the dim yellow flickering candlelight, he looked dangerously beautiful.
“I feel much better…”
