½ Prince Volume 9: Sequel
Original novel in Chinese by: 御 我 (Yu Wo)
Chapter 6: Wicked, Part Two – translated by raylight
“Zhuo-gēgē, when Xiao Xiao Lan grows up, will you marry her?” Xiao Xiao Lan asked me with innocent and adorable eyes, and she had a giant ribbon on her head.
“It’s Zhuo-shūshu.” I corrected her patiently, trying to resist the churning inside my heart. What Xiao Xiao Lan just said was almost identical to what Xiao Lan had said in the past.
I thought that I had already stopped caring about Xiao Lan’s marriage to another person. However, once I heard Xiao Xiao Lan’s words and saw that pair of eyes that were so similar to Xiao Lan’s, I felt as though my scars had been re-opened. I… fled in defeat from Xiao Xiao Lan’s house when Xiao Xiao Lan was just seven years old. (Thankfully, the eight-year-old Xiao Long Ming was already very sensible and was skilled at taking care of his little sister.)
I thought about things in the past as I stepped onto the streets of Infinite City. Just now, I had another huge quarrel with Gui and then took the chance to run away. However, I quite understood that for a long time now, Gui hadn’t been able to ignite my wrath. What I was afraid of was that Xiao Xiao Lan would be coming over in a short while.
According to what Prince said just now, Xiao Xiao Lan had always been looking for me, for her Zhuo-gēgē.
