Chapter 49 – The End
Later, Liu Yiming no longer said anything, only silently observed Wen Yu and Ying Chen.
He saw that Wen Yu would frown and talk to that Mr. Ying with disgust, saw him laughing and playing with Xu Cheng, saw him lightly ordering Lin An and Uncle Zhao.
Even with his uncle, he no longer had the bluntness and indifference he had in the past, and he casually followed his words and chatted about some everyday things. He could see that it wasn’t because his relationship with his uncle got better, but because he had someone who was sincere to him, so he didn’t care about that poor affection anymore.
The child who did not like to talk, finally also became cheerful and love to laugh.
Liu Yiming picked up the wine glass and drank it all, there was a sense of relief in his eyes.
Xu Cheng and Zhao Xiaoliang didn’t dare to joke with Ying Chen, they only joked with Lin An.
Guan Haitao drank a few glasses of wine and couldn’t hide some thoughts in his mind. He poured a glass of wine for Wen Yu: “Come, Uncle congratulates Xiaoyu for finding such a good boyfriend. Your future days can be considered to be free of any worries.”
Wen Yu squeezed the wine glass and looked at him lightly.
Guan Haitao smiled and said: “No matter what happened in the past, we are still a family. If Mr. Ying bullies you, our old Guan family will be your support. If your uncle needs your help in the future, we can also rely on you.”
Wen Yu heard what he meant, and his heart was shocked: Guan Haitao turned out to be such a brazen person.
The teenager held the wine glass and sneered: “Do you think I am willing to send you a message? If it wasn’t for Ying Chen’s insistence, you wouldn’t be sitting here at all.
“Oh, by the way, you lions have pitted Ying Chen for 10 million yuan for the house in your hometown. I can ask him to find a lawyer to get the money back.”
Guan Haitao’s hot face met a cold nail, and he couldn’t help but become angry: “Don’t forget, you have lived in Guan’s house for so many years, who gave you food, drink, and housing?! How can you be so ungrateful?”
Wen Yu snorted, turned his head, and shouted, “Ying Chen, find me a lawyer.”
Ying Chen took out his mobile phone and started looking for contacts, and asked, “What happened to Mr. Guan, do you need help?”
Wen Yu: “No, I’m going to sue Guan Haitao and the others for fraud.”
Guan Haitao was so angry that he pinned all his expectations on Ying Chen, who was polite to him, and said, “Mr. Ying, you see this child is really ignorant. He wants to sue his own uncle for talking nonsense, and he is not afraid to say it out to be laughed at.”
Ying Chen was startled and smiled. Pointing to the phone, he said, “This team is a professional team of lawyers specializing in fraud cases. If the amount of fraud exceeds one million, it should be sentenced to 20 years.”
Guan Haitao’s face flushed, and he pointed at Wen Yu and scolded, “You, don’t think that you can treat the Guan family like this just because you found someone you can rely on, you ungrateful—ah!” Halfway through speaking, the finger pointing at Wen Yu suddenly twitched. The severe pain made him put away his hand immediately and exclaimed, “My hand, what’s wrong with my hand, what’s going on?”
Liu Yiming couldn’t listen anymore, and sneered: “Guan Haitao, we have been neighbors for more than 20 years. I saw clearly how you treated this child since the beginning, and now you want to take advantage of the grace, where’s your face? And your Guan family raised Xiaoyu? The only person who has raised this child since the beginning is the old man, it has nothing to do with you.
“If you really dare to say something about Xiaoyu, I’ll call all the neighbors back then to tell the truth about those years, and see who of us has no face in the end!”
Guan Haitao’s hand was so sore that his head was covered in cold sweat, and his flushed face turned pale. When Liu Yiming said this, he was even more ashamed and angry: “Okay, you, you called me today just to watch me become a joke, right? You, you—”
He looked up and saw the people in the room besides Liu Yiming looking at him as if they were looking at a shameless villain. In an instant, it was as if all his ugly thoughts had been seen through, he felt so embarrassed that he just wanted to find a hole to crawl into.
Uncle Zhao saw the situation clearly, and hurried over to say, “Mr. Guan, are you feeling unwell, do you want me to take you to the hospital?”
Guan Haitao tore his face with Wen Yu, and was exposed by Liu Yiming mercilessly, how could he still have the face to stay here. Angrily, he followed Zhao Bo and left.
Xu Cheng grew up with Wen Yu, and Zhao Xiaoliang was also a relative and friend of Wen Yu for six years. Like Uncle Liu, they understand Wen Yu’s situation in the Guan family. Therefore, after Guan Haitao left the banquet, it did not have any impact on them, but everyone present felt more relaxed.
Xu Cheng poured a glass of wine and stood up and said, “Come on, congratulations to our Xiaoyu for ushering in a new life and a new beginning!”
Yes, a new life, a new beginning.
Ying Chen quietly held Wen Yu’s hand under the table, tightly and warmly.

It was getting late and the banquet was over.
After seeing all the guests away, Ying Chen grabbed Wen Yu’s hand and gave him a kiss: “Blame me for finding you too late, for letting you spend more than ten years like that in the Guan family.”
Wen Yu pulled out his hand: “It’s fine, if I grew up with you, you might learn how to ab*se children with your resentment towards me.”
“No, even if I don’t know the end of the past life, I will not really hurt you.” Ying Chen said, his tone gradually lost confidence: “I’m sorry.”
The night he first saw Wen Yu, he really couldn’t control himself, which scared him. Thinking of these, Ying Chen blamed himself and felt pained to the point of bleeding: “I’m sorry.”
Wen Yu smiled relievedly: “It’s all over.”
Whether it was the ordeal of the previous life, the life of the first eighteen years of this life, or the misunderstanding between him and Ying Chen, everything was over.
Next is their real start.
Outside the floor-to-ceiling window, a bright moon rose in the night, and the cold white moonlight shone through the window on Wen Yu’s thin figure in front of the window. He looked up at the night and said to Ying Chen who was standing behind him:
“Ying Chen, I have long remembered all of my previous life and learned how much I liked you. I know you hate Rong Di, but my death is none of his business. Because even if he didn’t tell me the way to save you, I would have found a way too. I might even have chosen to end myself to release you from the backlash.
“It’s just that I didn’t know you would live such a painful torment after leaving. The regret of our previous life boils down to the fact that we weren’t honest enough, right?
“Because there was one thing we never said to each other.”
Wen Yu turned around and smiled at Ying Chen, his bright eyes seemed to hide a splendid galaxy: “Ying Chen, I love you and am willing to die to save you. What about you?”
Ying Chen’s breathing suddenly stopped, his whole body seemed to be imprisoned and stood motionless, looking at the boy in amazement, his eyes gradually became wet and red.
Wen Yu tilted his head and asked with a smile again, “Ying Chen, what about you?”
Only then did Ying Chen react. He walked towards Wen Yu in three steps, stretched out his arms, and hugged the boy tightly, and with a trembling voice, he said: “Don’t you die, don’t do anything stupid again, tell me anything you encounter in the future, I can do everything for you as long as you are by my side, I can live, do everything for you, give you everything you want.”
This is Ying Chen’s expression. Wen Yu knew that this thousand-year-old divine demon would not confess his love like humans do, but would only say the truest feelings in his heart and put them into action.
He buried his head into Ying Chen’s broad chest, breathing in the light cold and pleasant breath, and whispered, “Then we will live together and die together.”
