Evil Emperor's Wild Consort - chapter-275
Master Xia rushed in to find the situation unfolding before his eyes. He
roared in anguish and appeared behind Xia Zixi in a flash. His palm
landed on his shoulder and held it tightly, “Zixi, what are you doing?”
“Father, let me die! I am in pain! Please let me die!”
Xia Zixi struggled madly against Master Xia’s hold. He had suffered too
much for the past few months, in his opinion death was a welcome
solution. Rather than suffering like this for the rest of his life and
dragging down the entire Xia Family with his agony, he would rather
choose to die.
“Die? Xia Zixi. If you f*cking want to die, then you are no son of mine!
There are no cowards in the Xia Family! What is the difference between
your intentions of running away and a coward? Where has the valiant and
brave son of mine disappeared to? When have you become so weak? In the
months of your illness, hasn’t Yu’er endured enough for you? He is only a
child of over ten years of age and as his father, you have been stirring
up a storm all over the place. Is this how you plan on treating him? He
lost his mother at such a young age and now you want him to lose his
father too? Do you think you deserve to be his father?”
Master Xia’s tone of voice grew more gentle as Xia Zixi’s mind gradually
settled into a calmer state. He took a deep breath and spoke with a hint
of resentment, “Yu’er is very gifted. But has been plagued with ill
health since childhood and was unable to cultivate properly. Everyone
considered him a good-for-nothing. But even though he lacked the
abilities, he was never weak. He even cultivated in secret behind our
backs. He did not care for the opinions of others and he never gave up.
But you? You can’t even endure a bout of pain, and now you’re thinking of
death. You’re worse than a child!”
Xia Zixi’s body trembled. He slowly collapsed numbly onto the ground and
sobbed, “Father, I know that I have let Yu’er down. I was not able to
take good care of him since his birth. And now, because I’m constantly
stirring up a storm, he’s gone to find the God of Doctors for a cure. But
I know my body well. Even if the God Da Luo himself were to appear, he
would not be able to save me. Why allow me to drag the entire Xia Family
down? That’s why I want to end my life.”
“If you truly feel that you’ve let Yu’er down, then you should not even
consider death! How would you know for sure that no one can cure you of
your ailment? If you are truly thinking of the future of the Xia Family,
then stand tall! A coward is not fit to be Yu’er’s father!”
Yes, I am a coward, thought Xia Zixi.
Compared to my son, who had been steadfast since he was young, I am not
fit to be his father! Not only was I unable to shield him but in the end,
I’ve become a burden to my (still) very young son and he has had to do so
many things for me…
And I? Not only did I not think of Yu’er’s support, I am so weak that I
would even choose to escape! I am not a man!
Gu Ruoyun stood at the doorway, her eyes fixed upon the man on the ground
and lightly raised an eyebrow. If her guess was right this man is the
Young Master of the Xia Family, Xia Linyu’s father!
It does not matter whether Xia Linyu is truly the brother whom she had
been searching for, this man needs help!
Not for him, but because the man’s son is named Xia Linyu!
Suddenly, Master Xia seemed to have remembered something, and quickly
turned his head towards Gu Ruoyun, his eyes filled with hope, “Little Gu
girl, may I ask for a favor? I’ve heard that the Ghost Doctor can cure
any disease, could you summon her to help save my son? As long as you can
aid me, I will promise you anything!”
