Chapter 987: Heâ€™s So Tired In His Heart
Translator:Henyee TranslationsEditor:Henyee Translations
At night, Teng couldnâ€™t help but tell Lin Qiao to get off work early.
About nine, Lin Qiao brought him back to where she lived, yet sensed a
familiar scent from her apartment before she went in.
She rolled her eyes. Why on earth did the man always sneak into her
She opened the door, and as she thought, she saw Wu Chengyue sitting on
her couch. A bottle of wine was standing on the table before him.
That was not her wine. Why did the man bring a bottle of wine to her
â€œYou should get yourself some peanuts to go with the wine,â€ Lin Qiao
said blandly as she carried Teng, who was already in sleep, and walked
into the bedroom.
Wu Chengyue was wearing no expression. As Lin Qiao came in, he instantly
stood up and asked her, â€œIs he asleep?â€
His voice was a little dry, but very gentle.
Lin Qiao nodded while walking. A short while later, she gently closed the
door and came out, then sat on an armchair. She looked at the man and
said blandly, â€œCan you please stop coming into my place without an
invitation? You are a base leader. If people knew about this, wouldnâ€™t
you feel humiliated?â€
â€œYou werenâ€™t here every time I came.â€ Who dared to tell anyone else
about that? Besides, only a few people knew that he had been visiting her
Hearing that, Lin Qiao did not want to continue the conversation. She
pressed her lips together and changed a topic, â€œWhy are you here?â€
Wu Chengyue poured himself a glass of wine, then poured her a glass too.
He pushed the glass toward her as he said, â€œHuaxia Base might cast
their eyes on your base because of Sea City Base. Also, as far as I know,
Sky Fire Base has been targeting your base since long ago. Have you
noticed that yet?â€
Lin Qiao blinked and said peacefully, â€œI know. They have eyes on us all
Last time, she and Wu Chengyue went to Huaxia Base to lend a hand, but
Sky Fire Base people didnâ€™t show up. She had noticed it since then.
Later on, Gu Yikang showed up around her base. After that, she told Xie
Dong to keep an eye on Sky Fire Base.
â€œLi Zhengye thought that Huaxia Base is going to start a war against
Sea City Base. He wants a share, but doesnâ€™t want to fight the war. All
he wants is to watch us fight Huaxia base and gain benefits amidst the
chaos,â€ Wu Chengyue picked up the glass and took a sip, then said,
â€œThey support Huaxia Base, but only mentally.â€
Lin Qiao snorted coldly and said, â€œLi Zhengye loves to fish in troubled
waters. That sounds exactly like what Sky Fire Base will do. Gu Yikang
and He Mu have both disappeared, so Li Zhengye wonâ€™t dare to make any
big moves. He is greedy, but also cowardly.â€
Sky Fire Base was her next target, and she was worried that Li Zhengye
might not make a move at all! Only by killing Li Zhengye and destroying
the current leadership of Sky Fire Base could she finish her revenge for
Hundreds of thousands of innocent residents were still living in Sky Fire
Base, so Lin Qiao didnâ€™t plan to destroy the entire base. At least, she
would give the commoners a chance of survival.
Wu Chengyue stayed silent and took another sip of the wine.
â€œIs that why youâ€™re here?â€ Lin Qiao looked at him and said.
Wu Chengyue looked at the glass of wine in his hand and asked another
question, â€œWhom are you going to send to Sea City Base?â€
â€œLin Feng,â€ said Lin Qiao, â€œI heard that you owe him a dinner.â€
Wu Chengyue nodded without changing his expression. â€œThatâ€™s right,â€
he said, â€œGood. Iâ€™m gonna prepare him a rich dinner.â€
â€œHeâ€™ll bring his wife and kid. Be prepared,â€ said Lin Qiao.
After that, the two of them fell into silence. He drank the wine sip by
sip while she sat there silently and motionlessly. A short while later,
Wu Chengyue seemed to have failed to withstand the weird atmosphere. They
were less than two meters away from each other, yet he felt as if she was
hundreds of meters away.
â€œHave you made the decision about the babyâ€™s official name yet?â€ he
â€œYes,â€ Lin Qiao nodded.
Wu Chengyue immediately raised his head to look straight at her. In his
eyes was a complicated look. â€œWhatâ€™s his name?â€ he said.
Since he had agreed to let her name the baby, he, of course, wouldnâ€™t
try to interfere. Even if the zombie lady picked an awful name, he
wouldnâ€™t say anything bad about it. He just wanted to know.
Lin Qiao gave him a glance and then said, â€œWu Qiteng. It means to stand
up and fly into the sky. He was a vine. â€کTengâ€™ is a homophone of the
word â€کvineâ€™ in Chinese.â€
Wu Chengyue stayed silent for a moment, then nodded and said, â€œThatâ€™s
a great name!â€
His sonâ€™s name was Wu Qiteng!
Hearing that name, an indescribable and subtle feeling spread from his
heart. He couldnâ€™t help but turn to the door of Lin Qiaoâ€™s bedroom.
He liked that name. He even sighed with relief when he heard it. At
least, it was not a bad name. If the zombie lady picked a terrible name
for his son, he might fail to stop himself from trying to rename the baby!
They both stayed silent for a few seconds before Lin Qiao couldnâ€™t help
but ask him, â€œIs there anything else that you want to say to me?â€
Wu Chengyue looked at her and pressed his lips slightly together, then
said sourly, â€œCanâ€™t you even stand being with me alone now? You must
have suffered so badly earlier for what we did together.â€
Lin Qiao looked at him silently, trying to show him some respect. That
was why she didnâ€™t stand up and walk away.
Wu Chengyue looked at her and the anger that he managed to restrain just
now rose again in his heart. He put the glass on the table, then rested
his elbows on his knees.
â€œIs it really impossible for us to be together? Why are you always
soâ€¦ Why canâ€™t you give me even one chance?â€ He sounded frustrated.
Letting out those words seemed to have consumed the last bit of his
energy. Abruptly, he raised a hand and covered his face with it.
He thought the zombie lady would have a better attitude toward him after
the baby was born, for the sake of the baby. She might still not accept
him, but he thought that she, at least, wouldnâ€™t keep rejecting him.
However, the attitude that she had been showing recently made his heart
sink. He didnâ€™t know what to do.
He was a man, and he could get tired like any man. He grasped every
opportunity to try and get close to her and win her heart. Many times, he
nearly gave up because he couldnâ€™t see even a gleam of hope.
About two months ago, he finally discovered a change of her attitude, but
within a blink, she hid her heart away once again and shrank into her
shell, isolating herself from him no matter how hard he tried to approach
The baby was born and she was no longer bonded together with him. Within
merely two days, she flew away from him like a kite with her strings cut.
He could only watch her drift further and further away.
He was so tired, and his heart ached so much.
