Chapter 241: The one who forgets favors and violates justice*
Nevertheless, Shen Jinglin looks calm as he speaks: “Jingya, it’s been a while. How are you and… Chunming these days?”
The woman in front of him is called Fang Jingya.
Before, she would often form a small team with Shen Jinglin, travelling for experience in various places, and improving their cultivation.
There’s also another one who had a close relationship with Shen Jinglin, the one that he had taken care of like a younger brother – Zhao Chunming.
The three of them could be considered as childhood friends, their relationship wasn’t shallow.
A year ago however, Shen Jinglin had an accident and was completely crippled.
These two, who were supposedly like blood siblings to him, suddenly cut off contact with him.
It’s just that, Zhao Chunming personally delivered a wedding invitation to him half a year ago, with a high and mighty face, he said–
He and Jingya are getting married, but looking at Shen Jinglin’s appearance as a waste, he’s afraid that the latter couldn’t participate in the pair’s wedding ceremony.
It’s then that Shen Jinglin knew.
This man who called him “Jinglin-brother” on the outside, had all along envied and resented him behind his back, and couldn’t wait for him to die.
To his question, Fang Jingya’s tears fall more freely, but she immediately turns away. She wipes of her tears and forces herself to show a smiling expression, “Shen-brother, I… I’m doing very well… but you…”
“Jingya, how could you run around by yourself?”
As she’s speaking, a man’s voice could suddenly be heard from a distance.
Upon hearing this voice, Fang Jingya immediately trembles from head to foot, her wan and sallow face showing a frightened expression.
While talking, the owner of that voice is already striding forward.
His sight sweeps over from Fang Jingya until it eventually settles on Shen Jinglin’s face. Showing a suggestive smile: “Ah, I say, why would Jingya suddenly stop here instead of moving? Turns out she came across an acquaintance. Jinglin-brother, really, long time no see!”
Shen Jinglin’s complexion turns gloomy all of a sudden.
He doesn’t want to get involved with this guy who ‘follows the red, pushes the white’*, who forgets favors and violates justice, so he turns around to walk away.
cling to someone who’s strong, but when the person loses that power, snob her/him.
Before he could move however, Zhao Chunming’s gaze, harboring malicious intentions, unexpectedly falls on his crippled leg.
“Jinglin-brother, seeing that you can walk around outside, I thought that your… disability has already been cured! It turns out that you’re still in this miserable state! Really pitiful, don’t you have money for treatment? Since we’re brothers, say, Jinglin-brother, how about I give you some money for medical expenses?”
“Chunming, don’t say that.” Fang Jingya pulls on Zhao Chunming, her voice trembling as she speaks, “Let’s go back, okay?”
Zhao Chunming turns his head towards Fang Jingya, sending her a smile that isn’t a smile, with taunting expression in his eyes.
All of a sudden, without any warning, he raises his hand and ruthlessly throws a slap to her face.
Fang Jingya reels from this slap, blood leaks out from the corner of her mouth.
“Slut, did you forget that you are my woman? Actually daring to be concerned about another man in front of my face, I could see that you’re tired of living, aren’t you?”
Shen Jinglin abruptly comes back to his senses.
He couldn’t believe that Zhao Chunming, who had once been eager and attentive as he follows around Fang Jingya, could actually be like this towards his wife.
He sees Zhao Chunming lifting his foot to ruthlessly kick Fang Jingya.
He quickly steps forward to stop it, “Zhao Chunming, what are you doing? Beating a woman, what are you thinking?”
Zhen Chunming sneers: “Do I need you to come and manage me on beating my own woman? Or maybe, the two of you have already fooled around and committed adultery, so seeing your lover suffer hardship is making you feel bad?”
“No! Not true!” Fang Jingya shakes her head, cheeks streaming with tears, “Jinglin-brother and I, we are clean an unstained, we’ve never been improper, you mustn’t talk rubbish and slander us!”
“Whore!” Zhao Chunming raises his foot and mercilessly stomps down on Fang Jingya’s face, “Do you have any qualifications to speak here?”
