OMF V6C17 I Cost Us Our Future

Jin Ling buried his face in Jing Yi’s hair and chuckled. Ah, he was getting ahead of himself. Thinking about Qiu Ling’s tortured look, he just wanted to achieve his goals immediately but naturally, he couldn’t let it end this easily. He first had to play with him for a while. Otherwise, how could Jinde’s soul be called avenged? No, he had to do more for him.
Jin Ling pressed up even closer to Jing Yi and took a deep breath before lifting his head. “He doesn’t just look like a beauty. Even his scent is this bewitching in his mortal form. I feel like I understand your hopeless feelings a lot better now. With someone like this … Who could resist?” He turned to Jing Yi and brushed his hair over to the other side, exposing a slender neck and a delicate ear. He leaned in and lowered his voice. “It really makes me curious about His Highness’ voice. How about letting me hear it when we’re back in my palace later on?”
He might have spoken quietly but the other side was made up of the immortal races. Several rows of dragons and gods could hear every word. Their expressions screamed bloody murder. This was their crown prince, the beloved son of their Heavenly Emperor! This was their king’s beloved, his future consort! Could the demon king casually make such remarks?!
Jing Yi didn’t care about Jin Ling’s words. He knew that the other side was just pretending as he had done before. Maybe he wouldn’t even do anything to him as long as he didn’t feel that it was necessary to implement his plan. He wanted to hurt Qiu Ling and that didn’t require him to do much more than what he was already doing.
Jing Yi concentrated on his fiance’s face and his eyes couldn’t help but gentle. Qiu Ling … He was obviously so mad. His whole body was trembling, his black eyes were turning redder and redder, and his nails had also turned into claws. But he didn’t move a single step. He stayed where he was, shaking with rage but afraid to make him suffer even more.
Jing Yi continued to look at him and finally smiled. “Don’t worry about me.”
Qiu Ling stared at him as if that alone would be enough to pull him out of the demon king’s embrace and back to his side. He didn’t know what to do or to say. Right now, he felt utterly helpless.
Jin Ling frowned and leaned closer to Jing Yi’s ear. “What are you doing?”
Jing Yi didn’t answer him. This person, he wasn’t worth talking to. Today … might be the last day of his life, the last day when he saw Qiu Ling. He wouldn’t waste even one second on another man. Instead, he continued to look at Qiu Ling. “It’s alright. What I said before still counts.”
Qiu Ling stared at him, the redness of his pupils slowly receding. What his beloved said before …
‘Whoever he is, it won’t change anything.’
Qiu Ling took another shaky breath and nodded. Yes, his beloved had already understood that there was just him. This time they had been separated against his will. If not for this bastard Jin Ling, they have already been on their way to get married.
Qiu Ling closed his eyes and the last bit of redness vanished. When he opened his eyes again, his gaze was clear, and his voice sounded steady when he spoke. “What is demon king Jin Ling’s meaning with doing all this? This is the Son of Heaven’s reincarnation. Taking him away and keeping him in your palace by force, neither the gods nor the dragons will condone this! If you don’t want us to wage a bloody war in the demon realm, then you better give up on whatever you have planned!”
Jin Ling stared at him. “Are you finished?”
Qiu Ling’s eyes narrowed. “Can it be you regard this as an empty threat?” Qiu Ling flexed his claws as if he wanted to rush over and use them.
The two dragons to his side hurriedly grabbed his arms.
“Your Majesty!” Xiang Yong hurriedly shook his head. “Don’t forget that he still has His Highness in his hands. If we don’t want the crown prince to be hurt …”
An Bai nodded. “Yes, we can’t be hasty with this. Let’s think this through clearly.”
Qiu Ling gritted his teeth. Damn this! That bastard had really made use of his only weakness! What was he supposed to do now?
Jing Yi’s gaze grew even gentler when he saw his fiance’s attitude of wanting to attack but not daring to do so. He couldn’t help but smile. Seeing the two people at his side, he also felt better. Even if they weren’t close to him, they would certainly be there for him. He wouldn’t be left alone, even if …
Jing Yi closed his eyes and took a deep breath before looking at Qiu Ling again. “Qiu Ling, I’m sorry. It’s all my fault. I didn’t trust you enough. Just see it as me being young and immature. I … cost us our future.”
Qiu Ling furrowed his brow. “Don’t say that.”
“But it’s the truth. I want to be with you. More than anything else. But I’m afraid I’ve already ruined it. So … Don’t mind me. Do what you have to do. Don’t listen to him. Even if … Even if I die today, I trust that you’ll find me in my next life.”
