Quick Transmigrating Second Female Lead's Counterattack - Chapter 219
Quick Transmigrating Second Female Lead's Counterattack Chapter 219
So I was wrong. There was an epilogue. New arc starts next time!
[I gambled with my life at stake. In the end, I won a life of splendor. There are millions of people in this world. And yet I only love you. Even if you cause me to lose my life, I still won’t be able to control that heart that only raced for you.]
Who would have thought that the formidable Ye MingYe would fall due to a woman.
I watched as the woman that I had always protected suddenly push me down into the zombie masses without the slightest hesitation. She then quickly turned and walked away, allowing me to be enclosed by those zombies.
In that moment, anger and resentment boiled over. Unwilling to be ripped apart by those disgusting things, I decided to self-destruct. As I closed my eyes, I told myself that if there was a second life, I wouldn’t believe in women again. Especially not that person that betrayed me.
As if the heavens heard my voice, they gave me a chance to reincarnate. But the heavens didn’t tell me that this time around, I would still fall into the same trap.
But in this life, I was willing to exchange my own life for her unchanging love.
Seeing her for the first time in the shopping market, was a strange feeling. It was obvious hatred. And yet my heart skipped a beat. Even though it was that familiar face accompanied with a smile that I wanted to rip off, I couldn’t bare touch her. Instead, I only felt more attracted to her.
Only then did I realize that she had changed. Slowly, this vivid person replaced the woman that had betrayed me in the last life.
I sat in her car naturally, as if I had no doubts towards her. Even if I tried to be expressionless to look more cold, I couldn’t do anything about the chaos inside.
I built up walls around my heart. In the end, her simple words opened up my locked heart.
You are the person that I don’t want to hurt the most in this world.
I had struggled before. But as soon as I put my guard up, my subconscious would tell me that I shouldn’t be doing this. She should be the one that I should hold in the palm of my hand and protect. How could I ignore her?
The decision I had made had been easily defeated.
Seeing her enter the kitchen and pull up her sleeves to cook, I was shocked.
In the last life, I had known her for a year. Although we didn’t live together, we’ve eaten meals together. And yet I didn’t know she could cook. But then I realized that I had almost forgotten what Ming XunMi from the last life looked like.
I didn’t remember her personality either. Was it that even the heavens were telling me that she was different than that person? After spending time with her, I knew that she had many secrets. She was very powerful, completely different than the woman from the past life.
I slowly completely separated these two people in my head. I just couldn’t merge them together. When we met an evolved creature, I didn’t know what I was thinking at the time. I reacted instinctively. I just wanted to give the best things to her. I hoped that there could be more things that could protect her so that she could live well in this apocalypse. Worrying about her, protecting her, and caring for her had already become my habit.
The more we spent time together, the more I realized that I had become addicted to a drug called XunMi. If I don’t have it for a single day, I would die from addiction.
When we reached the base, I stayed low. Not because I was playing a coup d’etat but because I was investigating Ming family. I wanted to know what Ming family had done to hurt her in the past.
If they dared touch her, then they needed to be prepared to face the consequences. The resulting investigation told me that she rejected going back to Ming family not only because Ming family had planned to gift her to B city’s head before the apocalypse but also because they had killed off her grandfather to conserve food consumption after the apocalypse.
That was the only person in Ming family that had treated her well. After losing the only thing she cared about, she lost any interest in being intertwined with Ming family.
When I saw her carrying a smile, as if she had never suffered, my heart throbbed with pain. She had suffered so much and yet I had wanted to hurt her more.
Even if she pushed me to my death in the last life, she never did anything to harm me in this life. On the contrary, she had worried about me and tried to lift my spirits. How could I not fall for this kind of person?
I wasn’t an idiot, nor did I have low EQ. I could understand the feelings I saw in her eyes. In Changle Village, I knew that I had fallen for her, not only in this lifetime, but forever.
As long as she could live happily without worry, my life was a small price to pay.
But later, like a coward, I was scratched by a zombie. I wanted to run away. I thought I had hid it well but she noticed. She lectured me.
In that moment, she was so beautiful. She was like the moon emitting splendid light in a pitch black world, so dazzling that those walking in darkness couldn’t bare leave her. Meanwhile, someone like me that could only breath under her light was even more unable to leave.
She healed me. Her entire body glowed with golden light. At that time, there was only one thought in my head. Goddess. She was my goddess. She was the goddess that saved, healed, and accompanied me.
I thought that if she disappeared one day, I will go after her, even if I needed to make the heavens my enemy. Then, I’ll break her wings and hide her in a room that no one else knew about. I would only want her to see me, to listen to my words, to only smile at me.
My dark thoughts came in and left in a flash, leaving my mind back in a state of calmness. Soon after, I gained a paramount amount of energy, becoming the founders of Holy Light base with her.
We wanted this to become the shining holy light in the apocalypse. We wanted to light up the future.
This year, the apocalypse was finally ending. I proposed to her.
Seeing her cry tears of joy and nod her head, I couldn’t help but hug her and jump down from a hundred meter’s height.
Yet, she wasn’t frightened a bit. She obediently hugged by neck and smiled in my arms.
I asked her. “Are you scared?”
She said, “I know you won’t hurt me.”
This kind of trust left me in a daze. A similar situations seemed to have happened a long time ago. But I couldn’t think of it.
The day we married, the entire Holy Light Base was filled with warm golden light. That person that walked out of the aura would be forever imprinted into my mind.
That day, I promised: “XunMi, you are Ye MingYe’s king. I’ll serve you in every life and world.
She smiled, standing on her tippytoes to kiss me. To be more accurate, she nipped my lips. She said, “You have my mark now. That means you’re mine. No matter where you go, no matter how much you change…you are mine.”
I nodded. “My ruler, whatever you say is imperial edict. As a loyal subject, how could I go against your words?”
Ten years after the apocalypse, the flowers bloomed. The grass was green again. Birds chirped as butterflies flapped. The human life recovered.
Twenty years after the apocalypse, things finally began to go back to the way everything was prior to the apocalypse.
I held her hand as we walked into the RT Mart where we first me. Even though it was crowded, everyone was filled with voices of laughter and joy.
Spoilers for next arc. Guys, how should I translate 兽人?
