After saying that, Yun Bilu hung up. Bai Yaoyao ran up to her and glared at her, her lips pressed into a thin line. Her eyes were red, and she looked like she was about to cry.
When Yun Bilu saw Bai Yaoyao’s expression, she was at a loss of words. She opened her mouth to say something but hesitated. Finally, she said in a small voice, “Elder Sister Yaoyao, don’t be angry at me, please. I-I really didn’t mean to do that… I can feel that you clearly don’t hate Mr. Soldier, but why did you reject him? Elder Sister Yaoyao, you don’t know how much I want to see you happy. You thought I don’t know that you always cry yourself to sleep, but I always knew…” As she said that, her eyes reddened and tears started welling up in her eyes.
Without a word, Bai Yaoyao hugged Yun Bilu tightly and started crying.
This time, she could not hold back her pent-up emotions and burst out crying just like that.
Yun Bilu was stunned for a moment and did not know what to do. She did not know where to put her hands as she only knew how to fight. She did not know how to comfort the crying Bai Yaoyao at all.
Yun Bilu was panicking so much that she wanted to pull out all her hair. She glared at Xirong Ziye’s wedding poster in the distance, desperately wanting to fly over and just rip it apart.
As Bai Yaoyao gritted her teeth, her cries gradually became softer. She sniffled for a while before breaking free from Yun Bilu’s hug. After wiping her tears away, she said, “I must’ve scared you, right?”
Yun Bilu shook her head. “No, I just feel sad seeing you like this.”
Bai Yaoyao caressed Yun Bilu’s red and puffy eyebags and said with a pang in her heart, “Silly girl. You should be happy and carefree every day. Don’t be influenced by me. I just couldn’t control myself for a moment.”
Yun Bilu nodded. “I know, Elder Sister Yaoyao. You have a lot of pain in your heart. Once we leave Country E, we won’t see him or hear about him anymore.” Here in Country E, the news was all about the president’s wedding, and it was even plastered all over the streets. It would be difficult to forget even if one wanted to.
After sighing, Bai Yaoyao looked up the sky and took a deep breath. “Bilu, my dear younger sister, I know you love and care for me, but Duan Yanhao had a past as well. My previous relationship wasn’t fair to him either. To be honest, I haven’t really gotten over Xirong Ziye.”
Yun Bilu took Bai Yaoyao’s hand and said, “Elder Sister Yaoyao, I know you invested so much in that relationship for so many years. It’s not something you can easily forget. I know there’s a process, but you have to promise me that you will give yourself a chance at happiness and go for it, alright? No matter what happens, we will always be your pillar of strength and support.”
Bai Yaoyao thought for a moment before she replied in a determined tone, “Okay.”
Yun Bilu broke into a smile upon hearing that. “Oooh, Elder Sister Yaoyao agreed.”
When both of them reached the plane, Huang Yize was already there waiting for them. After seeing that they were alright, he stopped frowning and boarded the plane as well. Bai Yaoyao suddenly asked in an excited voice, “Bilu, I haven’t been back to Ning An City in a long time. Has Ning An City changed a lot?”
“Elder Sister Yaoyao, this is called returning to your hometown with mixed emotions. You have already read the recent news about Ning An City. After the business meeting, the conditions in our hometown have been getting better and better.”
Bai Yaoyao smiled as she nodded. “Yeah. The feeling of going home is still the best. It feels like all my troubles will be gone after I go back home.”
When the plane was up in the air, Bai Yaoyao stared at the clouds outside. Thinking about how she was going to leave this sad place and return to Ning An City lightened her heavy and depressed mood considerably. It was as if the emotional burden she was carrying in her heart for so long disappeared all at once. She took a deep breath and felt much more at ease now.
