412 ENOUGH TO HURT MY HEART
“The Immortal Elder let me have his two crystals,” Bai Chen replied.
The answer was directed at Wu Jinhai because Wu Jinhai was the one who asked him, but Yu Ming and Wu Jingguo also looked surprised after hearing the series of words that had just left Bai Chen’s lips.
“Why would the Immortal Elder let you have his two crystals, Prince Bai Chen?” Yu Ming immediately asked. “I can guess why he decided to let you have his Power Crystal. You no longer have your Power Crystal, and even after you found your Power Crystal, you don’t want to take it back. But I don’t understand why he also gave you his Life Crystal when you still have that crystal in your body.”
Bai Chen had also wondered about it when he first found out that Bai Lang had given him his Life Crystal as well, but now he could understand the reason, and that was why he didn’t even look at Yu Ming after hearing the man’s question. Instead, he fixed his gaze on Wu Jinhai because the answer to that question would relate to Wu Jinhai.
“I would like to speak privately with Wu Jinhai. Can you give me some time, Yu laoban?” Bai Chen asked, and when he noticed someone else was also with them at this time, he glanced at the person before adding, “You too, Your Highness. Can you give me a moment to talk to your brother?”
Of course, the second question was aimed at Wu Jingguo who was still standing beside Wu Jinhai. Wu Jingguo looked doubtful, and he even furrowed his brows at Bai Chen, but then Yu Ming walked up to him before grabbing his wrist. Without saying anything, Yu Ming led Wu Jingguo to leave the two of them.
Yu Ming didn’t give him a verbal answer to his question, but Bai Chen knew that the older man was willing to give him a chance to talk to Wu Jinhai. When he glanced at the two figures, he could see how the two of them were walking over the bridge connecting the mainland and the Forbidden Forest, and Bai Chen sighed heavily when he saw that.
“Do you still remember when you saved me when I almost fell off the bridge on the day of the Beast Hunting Event, Wu Jinhai?” Bai Chen asked, but his blue eyes stayed on the bridge instead of staring at the red-robed man standing in front of him.
“Yes,” Wu Jinhai replied. “You were lucky because I was walking behind you back then, and that’s why I was able to save you from death even before you could enter the Forbidden Forest.”
Finally, Bai Chen turned to Wu Jinhai before replying, “Back then, you were deliberately walking behind me, weren’t you? To be precise, you were deliberately wanting to get closer to me, and you were secretly seeking opportunities to approach me, right? How I almost fell off the bridge was just helping you smooth out your plan, right?”
Perhaps Bai Chen sounded sarcastic, but he actually felt curious about it. Everything felt so natural then, and it felt like a coincidence when it was the Eldest Prince of Wu Li who saved him at that time.
But Bai Chen was not naive, and he knew that Wu Jinhai walking behind him was all part of the man’s plan, and their first meeting was definitely not a coincidence.
“Are you asking that question because you doubt me once again, Bai Chen? Is it because you heard how Shao Yaoting tried to tempt me with the antidote for the poison in my body?” Wu Jinhai did not answer Bai Chen’s question. Instead, he asked two questions, and it didn’t seem like he wanted to beat around the bush when he finally voiced his curiosity.
And Bai Chen didn’t want to beat around the bush either as he replied, “You’re right. I thought you’d be tempted by Shao Yaoting’s offer, but I would understand if you chose to accept his offer, Wu Jinhai. I understand how the antidote is very important to you, and that’s why I wouldn’t be angry even if you accepted it.”
After hearing Bai Chen’s statement, Wu Jinhai frowned displeased before replying, “Are you saying you don’t mind if I betray you by coming to Shao Yaoting’s side?”
This time, Bai Chen did not answer immediately. His blue eyes remained fixed on the taller person, and as he stared intently at the person’s face, he also caught a glimpse of the golden scales on the person’s forehead.
It could be said that the fish scales were the source of Wu Jinhai’s disaster since he was a child, and he silently raised his right hand before using his forefinger to graze the scales. It felt rough against his finger, and he knew there was no way to peel it from Wu Jinhai’s skin. n0𝒱𝚎𝑙𝚞𝓈𝒷.𝑐0𝗆
“I don’t want you to betray me, Wu Jinhai. Just thinking about it is enough to hurt my heart,” Bai Chen replied.
Bai Chen was still touching the golden scales on his forehead, but then Wu Jinhai grabbed the hand before bringing it to his lips. Gently, he planted a kiss on the index finger that previously touched his fish scales.
“I will not betray you,” said Wu Jinhai. “That’s not a promise, but that’s the truth. I will always be by your side, and the poison in my body will never be a reason to betray you.”
Bai Chen was stunned. Wu Jinhai had just kissed his finger, and now his hand was still in front of the man’s lips. He could feel Wu Jinhai’s hot breath on his hand, and it was enough to make his body shiver.
But maybe it wasn’t the hot breath that made him react like that. On the contrary, he knew that it was Wu Jinhai’s words that managed to touch the deepest part of his heart.
Wu Jinhai would not betray him even if the reason was the poison in his body, and that meant that he was now officially Wu Jinhai’s priority. To Wu Jinhai, he was more important than his empire as well as the title of Crown Prince, and Bai Chen was deeply moved by that.
Finally, Bai Chen could feel Wu Jinhai’s sincerity, and he took a deep breath before saying, “I’ll help you get rid of the poison, Wu Jinhai. More precisely, it’s the Immortal Elder who will grant your wish to return to become a normal human again.”
