“Dad and Mom love you…”
As a series of unfamiliar, yet lifelike images, flashed past her eyes, Nian Xiaomu felt a pounding pain in her head. She cradled her head in her hands and squatted down suddenly before letting out a loud shriek!
When she lifted her head, her eyes had turned bloodshot, and there were tears welling up in her eyes.
Fan Yu wanted to step forward, but Yu Yuehan had already bent down and carried her in his arms, pressing her firmly against his chest.
“We are still investigating the matter. Don’t scare yourself.” His low voice was soothing to hear, and she felt comforted by it.
She lifted her head and, with a shaky voice, said, “I saw a few images that were scenes from the past. The blazing fire kept burning down everything…”
Tugging hard at Yu Yuehan’s sleeves, Nian Xiaomu’s fingertips turned white.
She tried to calm herself down, but could not get rid of the images in her mind.
When she woke up at the hospital, she had lost all of her memories.
The only thing she could remember was a huge fire.
It was a sea of flames…
In the days after she regained consciousness, she would suffer from a recurring nightmare that she was trapped in a fire.
She wanted to run, but somehow could not move her legs.
She could only watch as herself and the people around her were being surrounded by the scorching flames as everything slowly burned to ash…
She was struggling with all her might, yet it was futile and hopeless. The feeling was like being strangled around the neck so tightly that it was suffocating. Just thinking about it made her feel like she couldn’t breathe.
After undergoing the psychological treatment that Tan Bengbeng had prepared for her, her nightmares had slowly gone away.
However, the repressed images were reappearing in her mind after hearing Xing Li’s words…
“Xing Xing, if you had even a bit of conscience, then you should be feeling sorry every day for causing the deaths of our parents. Now that our family is broken, what right do you have to be happy? You should go to hell!”
Xing Li’s emotions had become uncontrollable.
If not for the bodyguards restraining her, she would have struck at Nian Xiaomu.
Seeing that Nian Xiaomu’s face had turned pale, Xing Li started to raise her voice as she continued to try to break free from the bodyguards’ restraint so that she could charge forward.
At the next second, Yu Yuehan threw an icy glare at Xing Li.
The austerity in his expression instantly froze the surroundings.
Even Xing Li was stunned by the look in his eyes.
Her mouth was agape, but she did not dare to say another word.
“Nian Xiaomu, I’d go with you even if it’s to hell.” Yu Yuehan grabbed her shoulders with both hands and forced her to look up at him.
At first, he thought that he would see fear and helplessness in her eyes.
He did not expect that Nian Xiaomu had regained her composure on her colorless face.
Upon hearing Xing Li’s words, she seemed to have snapped out of her daze. Getting up slowly from the floor, she walked toward Xing Li with firm and steady steps.
“You said that my parents died when they tried to save me. Where were you then?”
Seeing Nian Xiaomu’s dispassionate gaze, Xing Li was shocked.
“Are you blind? I’m already disfigured. Do you wish that I had died in that fire as well? Then, nobody would find out that you were the one who caused the deaths of your parents!”
“Xing Xing, why didn’t you die instead? You are the jinx—the one who should’ve died! The police ought to lock you up in prison and have you repent behind bars for the rest of your life!”
