Silver Cloud cleaned the mansion. She slept in her room at night while he
slept on the reclining chair outside.
Paradise Island was spring all year round and the difference in
temperature between the day and night was not big. It was slightly chilly
at night, but not cold. Xu Xing slept but woke up in the middle of the
night and could no longer fall asleep. Maybe it was because it was a new
place and bed that she did not sleep comfortably.
This bed was not soft and comfortable like the bed at home. It was just a
simple wooden bed. Silver Cloud put a thick blanket on it as he was
afraid that she would feel uncomfortable. The weather was hot and there
was no air conditioner. It was chilly to sleep on the wooden bed, but she
felt hot sleeping on the blanket.
She kept tossing and turning but could not fall asleep. Therefore, she
decided to get up.
The moon hid between the clouds tonight and it was dark outside. Silver
Cloud was not sleeping on the reclining chair and was instead standing
quietly outside the courtyard. Maybe it was because of the dark night.
His back view looked solemn.
Xu Xing felt gloomy in her heart and it pressed on her until she could
not breathe properly.
What was Silver Cloud thinking about?
Why was he still not sleeping when it’s already so late?
She walked a few steps and alerted Silver Cloud. He turned back, but she
could not see his expression clearly as it was against the light. It
seemed like he was angered, but it also seemed like he did not have any
“Silver Cloud, you didn’t sleep?” she asked gently.
Silver Cloud replied with a hum. He looked down and saw her fair and
pretty little feet. Xu Xing came out barefooted as she did not have any
shoes and it was uncomfortable to wear high heels at night. The mansion
and the courtyard were clean, so it was not convenient to be barefooted.
She saw Silver Cloud looking down and she wriggled her toes in an uneasy
manner and explained. “I like to walk barefooted.”
Silver Cloud looked up and sighed. He walked past her and went into the
house. She was slightly startled. After a while, he came out with a pair
of slippers made of bamboo. He bent down and help Xu Xing wear it.
His hands were warm and it felt weird when he touched her cold feet. Xu
Xing had an indescribable uneasy feeling. “The island is so hot.”
It was even hotter now.
Silver Cloud stood up and replied to her, “You can’t fall asleep?”
“A little,” Xu Xing admitted. She was not tired at all. “You
can’t fall asleep too?”
Silver Cloud hummed and let Xu Xing lie down on the reclining chair. He
sat down on the small stone stool beside it and both of them were silent.
Xu Xing knew Silver Cloud’s personality after knowing him for so many
years. He was always quiet and she was always the one initiating the
topics. Most of the time, he would just listen to her.
They would be silent if she did not say anything.
“Silver Cloud, is there anything on your mind?” she asked, concerned.
Silver Cloud did not say anything and just looked at the faraway
mountains, thinking of something. The air at night smelled of camellias.
Silver Cloud said that he did not like white camellias, but there were a
lot of white camellias planted in the courtyard.
Xu Xing thought that he must be thinking about his family members.
“I’ve been the one telling you what’s on my mind, so you should
tell me if you have anything on your mind too. You will feel better after
saying it out,” Xu Xing said. “I’m also a good listener.”
“I know,” Silver Cloud said. “Xing Xing is a very good girl.”
Xu Xing was startled and she blushed. She could not see Silver Cloud’s
expression at night, but her face felt hot because of what Silver Cloud
said. It was the first time Silver Cloud had complimented her like this.
She was very happy.
“Really? How am I good?” she asked excitedly.
“I can’t tell exactly why you are good. Everything is good,” Silver
Cloud said. He was not good with words, and this was all he could say. At
least to him, Xu Xing was indeed like this. He did not know how to
explain why she was good, but he could only say that she was good.
Maybe it was because his hands were full of blood, so he felt that Xu
Xing’s kindness was very precious.
He did not want to hurt Xu Xing.
Really, not at all.
He did not want Xu Xing to hate him either. Ever since Xu Nuo had died,
Xu Xing was the only person in this world that cared about him and was
also the only one he was close with. If she hated him, then nobody would
remember that he had ever existed in this world. Wasn’t that sad?
Xu Xing smiled. “Silver Cloud is also a good man. Everything about you
is good. But, there’s one thing not good and that is you are too
“Are you gloomy when you are with me?”
“No,” Xu Xing replied without hesitation. “I am talkative, so I’m
scared that you’re annoyed with me for talking nonstop every day.”
Xu Xing smiled and asked again, “Are you in a bad mood?”
Silver Cloud did not reply and sat there quietly, looking at the
mountains. His back was very straight as if something was bothering him.
It was also as if he was proving something.
Xu Xing did not understand what he was up to and looked at him weirdly.
He did not speak for very long and she did not mind. Anyway, she could
not fall asleep and should just accompany him here.
The sound of the waves could be heard and the smell of fresh sea breeze
lingered in the air. Lotus Island was indeed a good place.
Silver Cloud looked back at the carefree Xu Xing and asked, “Xing Xing,
do you know who the owner of this island is?”
“Isn’t it you?” Xu Xing replied. It didn’t really matter who the
owner of Lotus Island was. Silver Cloud grew up here, so this was his
Silver Cloud shook his head. “The original owner of this island is
called Xu Nuo.”
Xu Xing’s smile instantly became stiff.
Xu Nuo… Which Xu Nuo? Paradise Island… Xu Nuo… What was he saying?
Xu Xing’s stiff smile seemed to freeze. She could not believe what she
had heard. It was like a fantasy.
Was it her sister, Xu Nuo?
Silver Cloud looked at her stiff face and said calmly, “It’s your
sister, Xu Nuo.”
“This Paradise Island was given to her by Second Master Mo, and after
she passed away, this island was returned to Second Master Mo. A few
years ago, Second Master Mo transferred the island to Ye Ningyuan.
Therefore, the owner of this island used to be Xu Nuo, and now, it’s Ye
Ningyuan,” Silver Cloud said word by word and turned his head. He did
not want to see Xu Xing’s shocked expression or the pain in her eyes.
He thought about it for a night and decided to tell her the truth as he
did not want to hide from her anymore.
Xu Xing should know about this. She had the right to know.
Xu Xing wanted to smile but could not smile. She lifted her lips but it
looked uglier than crying. Her eyes became red… Xu Nuo, her sister…
At that moment, the only thing in her mind was whether Silver Cloud
treated her so nicely because of her sister.
