Dongfang Ming shook his head when he heard him say something so unreasonable and beneath his dignity. He then got up and left the room.
Was it because he couldn’t afford to offend him or was it because he wasn’t able to hide from him?
If he weren’t a very close friend whom he grew up with, he would’ve already asked Ming Yan to chase him away long ago!
Ming Yan saw his master leave and he advised, “Young Master Wang, you should go back! Miss Wang is blessed to have a brother like you. And it is touching for you to help her like this.”
“I feel that it isn’t that Master doesn’t want to help you, but if he really went, Miss Wang might fall even more deeply in love.”
How could Wang Xixuan not understand this reasoning?
However, besides Dongfang Ming, there might not be anyone else who could persuade his little sister to stop tormenting herself!
Just one word from him and she would change what she liked and what she felt persistent about.
Now that she met such a predicament, it was only his encouragement and comfort that could let her start her life anew.
Ming Yan looked at Wang Xixuan and it was as if he didn’t hear what he said. He just knelt there silently, not moving.
Just as he was about to open his mouth and advise him again, he heard Wang Xixuan’s dispirited voice ring out. “I won’t go. I will wait. I will wait until Brother Dongfang agrees to help Yan Er break away from her current state and help her start her life anew.”
“I will wait for him here! I will keep kneeling and wait for him!”
Ming Yan frowned when he heard him. It was as if he saw the shameless Wang Xiangyun.
He muttered in his heart, It really is no wonder they are brother and sister. We’ve already given him a clear answer but he still stubbornly refuses to give up!
Since he already said so, as a servant, how could Ming Yan dare to lay his hands on a high ranking official from the Ministry of Rites?
Ming Yan shook his head. He had no choice but to leave the room while feeling helpless like his master.
He had to leave him by himself to calm down.
In the other room, Dongfang Ming stood by the window with a frown. His heart was filled with irritation!
“Master, Master Wang isn’t willing to leave. He said if you don’t agree he will keep kneeling and won’t stand up.” Ming Yan came to the room and reported the situation to him.
“Suit himself!” Dongfang Ming sighed and said helplessly.
After a while, Dongfang Ming spoke in a way that seemed like he was talking to himself but also as if he was speaking with Ming Yan. “Was I wrong back then? I clearly knew she was drugged but still allowed her to leave angrily.”
He felt that he, more or less, had an unavoidable responsibility for what happened to Wang Xiangyun.
When Ming Yan heard him, he frowned and did not agree.
He was worried that, if his master thought this, he would feel guilty for the rest of his life. He responded bravely, “Master, you did nothing wrong! Absolutely nothing wrong!
“Miss Wang had already drugged you once but she even tried to do it a second time. Those with a wicked heart have to face the consequences of their misdeeds! Everything she experienced was all due to her own doing. It is completely unrelated to you!”
“Moreover, she isn’t a confused and ignorant child. How could everyone treat her as if she is the center of the world and always yield to her? If so, Miss Wang would’ve already stopped being Miss Wang two years ago and I would be calling her Mrs. Dongfang!
“Is Master willing to let Miss Wang become his wife?”
When Dongfang Ming heard this, he laughed at himself and shook his head. “I wouldn’t be willing, naturally.”
If he was willing, maybe there wouldn’t be so many problems right now!
It was no use to think too much. What had happened happened and there was no way to stop these things from having happened. All this was fate.
“Ming Yan, if Brother Wang still hasn’t left by nightfall, prepare some dishes for him.”
As he spoke, Dongfang Ming turned around and left the room once again. “I will head out for a while. You don’t need to follow me.”
“Okay.” Ming yan looked at Dongfang Ming’s back, his frown never relaxing.
He hoped his master wouldn’t do anything he would regret because he felt guilty.
