The Most Loving Marriage In History: Master Mu's Pampered Wife Chapter 1086 – Funeral 5
Wang Hui’s memorial service was held on the third day after her death in the main hall of the funeral parlor. They tried to keep it simple, but many people came to pay their respects. Flowers filled up the whole place. The guests who came were good friends with Wang Hui and the Mu family.
Xi Xiaye had already forgotten what happened the other day. She only remembered hearing many people crying…
Mu Yinan did not come while Elder Su and Elder Zhou were accompanying him at home. Because Mu Lingshi could not come as well, Ji Zitong stayed at home with her.
Qi Lei noticed that Xi Xiaye’s palms were cold when he held her hands. He looked at her and saw some tears under the sunglasses.
“My condolences!” he said quietly.
Xi Xiaye nodded briefly. “Thank you!”
At this moment, Qi Lei heard a familiar voice behind him, so he turned around and found Dongfang Liuyun there too!
She was shaking hands with Mu Yuchen. In a large black shirt and dark long pants, she also wore canvas shoes and a pair of sunglasses as well. She tied her hair into a ponytail that was gathered on her chest, and she seemed slimmer.
Mu Yuchen nodded and quickly let go of her hand.
Xi Xiaye held Dongfang Liuyun’s hands with her cold ones. They were surprised by each other’s temperatures. Through her sunglasses, Xi Xiaye observed her a little…
Qi Lei looked down at the lush greenery below as he stood by the corridor outside the hall and asked, “Why are you here?”
Dongfang Liuyun did not know that he would be there too. She fixed her sunglasses and replied, “Elder Madam Mu and Elder Chairman Mu have dealt with me many times before. Elder Madam Mu is a great person to talk to and I’ve learned a lot from her. Her sudden death is deeply regretful.”
Qi Lei then remembered that the elders of the Mu family did seem to like to collect antiques and were probably familiar with all the antique shops around here. With Dongfang Liuyun being such a well-known antiquarian, it was not odd that they would know each other.
“Sigh, she was still alive just a few days ago, and she’s now gone just like that!” Qi Lei glanced through the lush greenery as he lamented.
Smiling gently, Dongfang Liuyun rested her arms on the railings. “Such is life. We’ll never know what will happen. Some people might have to go through pain and suffering before they die. From another perspective, leaving like this might not be too bad after all.”
As she spoke, her smile felt a little cold to Qi Lei.
For some reason, when he saw her carefree attitude, he asked abruptly, “Do you fear death?”
Dongfang Liuyun raised her eyebrows before she took off her sunglasses. She glanced at him and asked, “Do you think I’m not human? Of course, I fear death!”
“Apart from pain and suffering, why else do people fear death then?” he continued with another question.
At that moment, Qi Lei suddenly realized he was acting like a raw student in front of this woman who was younger than him.
“Why do we fear death?” Dongfang Liuyun frowned, then shook her head. “I have no idea, but to me, it might be the fear of being forgotten. There’s always hope when you’re still alive. On the other hand, nothing will be left if you’re dead and you’ll disappear from this world.”
“Afraid of being forgotten and the fear of disappearing?” Qi Lei mumbled to himself before smiling. “That sounds true, I suppose.”
“I don’t know about you, but that’s how it is for me. By the way, you said you were going to pay for dinner the other night. Not only did you not do that, but you also haven’t returned my equipment as well. I’m not really a kind person. Anyone who knows me knows that I’m a very vengeful person. Plus, I have a bad temper too. Have you decided how you want to die?” Dongfang Liuyun’s tone turned chilly, and Qi Lei could sense the threat in her eyes.
“I still want to live! I don’t want to die!” Qi Lei gave her an instant reply.
“It’s my first time seeing someone as shameless as you.” Dongfang Liuyun put on a cold smile as she glanced at him. “But it’s a special day today. I’ll let you go this once, but your luck runs out the next time I see you.” Concerned about where they were, she just gave him a warning.
Qi Lei shrugged. “Miss Dongfang, we’re partners anyhow. It’s just that one meal, and we just ate at some hawker center. Why do you act so unwillingly? Don’t I look handsome? I’m pretty rich too. So many people long to treat me to a meal. Do you understand?”
“You just look like some snob. You’re only worth as much as a beer bottle cap to me. Even that is a compliment to you!” Dongfang Liuyun was starting to get irritated. She had traveled all around the world and seen so many handsome men had before. However, she had never seen one as shameless as Qi Lei!
He started to give in. “Alright! Alright! Just pretend I didn’t say anything. I’ll return your equipment right away, okay?” Qi Lei did not want to continue the conversation as he was at a disadvantage.
Dongfang Liuyung calmed down as she looked at the lush greenery and mumbled, “I hope she can rest in peace. Goodbye!” She then turned around and left.
