Chapter 388 - Wishes of the Past
“But… I didn’t mean to… It wasn’t my fault…” Lin Yi felt pretty wronged- why was this on him??
“Accident? Who are you trying to trick!” Mengyao’s eyes were wide open. “There was a lock on the chest, you had to unlock it to look inside!”
“Wha?!” Lin Yi’s eyes went wide open as well as he turned to Mengyao. “Chest? You’re talking about the chest?”
“What do you think, what could I possibly be talking about if not he chest?” Mengyao wasn’t pleased at Lin Yi’s act at all.
“I thought… You were talking about me seeing your thighs…” Lin Yi sweated.
“Thighs?” Mengyao blushed. “Don’t change the subject! That was just an accident, I’m talking about why you broke the lock to the chest! Didn’t you know how immoral it is to look at someone’s privacy??”
Mengyao would’ve thought that someone had broken the lock if she weren’t dealing with Lin Yi- she knew exactly how easy it was for Lin Yi to break a small lock like that, especially considering how he’d pulled open the gate near the villa’s storage when Yushu got stuck last time.
Lin Yi, on the other hand, was rejoicing- he breathed out in relief, thankful that it didn’t look like Mengyao planned on tackling the subject. The lock she was talking about, however, wasn’t something he’d put on his mind at all. “I wasn’t the one who broke that lock, it corroded and broke because of how long it’d been buried… The chest could be opened directly…”
“For real?” Mengyao wasn’t expecting that explanation.
“Yeah… You can go check if you don’t believe me.” Lin Yi smiled bitterly.
“Ah?!” Mengyao started panicking after Lin Yi explained himself, since there was no reason for him to lie, especially when this was something that could be verified by just walking outside.
Yushu ran out the villa before Mengyao could say anything, returning back with a broken lock a moment later. “Yao Yao, look! The lock really is corroded, Shield Bro didn’t do anything! See? I told you Shield Bro’s not that kind of guy!”
“Shu! Whose side are you on?!” Mengyao wasn’t too pleased with what Yushu was saying. “Couldn’t you have hidden that away? That’s evidence you could’ve gotten rid of!”
“Oh. So should I throw it away now?” Yushu asked weakly.
Mengyao realized that Lin Yi was still watching them after she said the words out of her panic and frustration- she couldn’t help but blush in embarrassment. “I wasn’t serious! Come on, let’s go upstairs!”
“Oh… Okay…” Yushu nodded, giving Lin Yi a smile before running up with Mengyao.
Lin Yi was confused- was that really the end of the scolding? Had the Miss finished with him? Lin Yi sure wasn’t expecting to get off this easily, what a surprise indeed.
“Shu, you embarrassed me so much! You dummy! Tell me, are you helping Lin Yi on purpose!” Mengyao was quite furious- how did things turn out this way, now it was her who wronged him! She lost everything she had to scold Lin Yi with just when she was about to!
“No… I mean, I was just telling the truth…” Yushu said innocently. “Yao Yao, did you want me to lie? Didn’t you always teach me that only bad girls lied when we were younger…”
“......” Mengyao waved a hand helplessly at Yushu’s change of subject. “Forget it. Let’s go upstairs!”
“Okay, I wanna see what kind of wish I wrote down when I was a kid! I don’t even remember anymore.” Yushu danced around excitedly as she quickly made her way upstairs…
“Which one of these sachets is yours again?” Mengyao didn’t know which of the sachets belonged to whom anymore- it’d been too many years. They wouldn’t have forgotten where they’d buried the whole treasure chest otherwise.
“I don’t know. Let’s just open one each- it’s been so long anyway, we can see what each other’s wishes were.” Yushu said.
“Okay then…” Mengyao nodded after some hesitation, even though she wasn’t really keen on letting Yushu learn about this secret of hers- she couldn’t be trusted at all! Who knew if she’d just run up to announce it to Lin Yi right after? That’d be so humiliating.
But after thinking about it, Mengyao thought that it didn’t matter anymore- she didn't even remember the wish she’d written down, and even if Lin Yi found out about it, it was still a childhood dream. It’d been so long anyway.
And so, both Yushu and Mengyao picked one sachet up each. They were stitched shut, quite delicately, now that they thought about it.
Their current mood, however, didn’t allow for a luxurious opening of the sachets- the impatient Yushu decided that she’d just charge in with a pair of scissors, slicing the delicate stitching and exposing the sachet’s contents.
“Hehe, I got it first! Let’s see who this one belongs to…” Yushu spread open the wish note with a smile on her face. The paper was slightly yellowed already, and the writing was old, but the words were still clearly imprinted. “My wish is to live together with Shu and stay happy forever…”
Evidently, the wish belonged to Mengyao, who was very surprised herself as Yushu read out the note. She didn’t think she’d been this close with Shu since they were kids?
“Yao Yao… I’m so touched……” Yushu usually messed around all of the time, but the contents of that wish note reddened her eyes- she couldn’t help herself as the tears edged.
“Hah, so you finally know how nice I am to you?” Mengyao took the pair of scissors and opened her sachet, which was now obviously Yushu’s. “My wish is to get married to Yao Yao and spend my life with her forever… Wha-?!”
Mengyao’s eyes were wide open after going through the note- Yushu wanted to marry her?! Could there be something wrong with her sexual orientation? Was she a lesbian?
“Uh..?” Yushu was taken aback as well- she wasn’t expecting for a wish this powerful. “Yao Yao, were we an item back then? Why are our wishes so similar?”
“They’re not similar at all!” Mengyao said speechlessly. “How are they similar, they’re miles apart! If we’re talking about being an item then that’s you, not me! I wrote to live with you, like how sisters can live together! Look at what you wrote, you said you wanted to marry me! What’s with that??”
“Ah?! No way!” Yushu found it quite logical now that she thought about it- did she have something weird with her sexual orientation back then? She didn’t remember… Did she not like boys? But it felt like she did… She’d felt something in her heart every time Shield Bro did stuff to her, after all, like when he kissed her and touched her boobs...
