Realms In The Firmament - Chapter 237
Chapter 237 - The Poor Girl, Bing-Er
Ye Xiao was astonished. [What the hell! I just got expelled out of the Space by an egg! It is my own Space, dude! I am the owner!
And now you don't allow me to cultivate in my own place?
Fine. Wait and see.]
So since that day, Ye Xiao had cut off all the supplies to the Space.
Firstly, the Wood Space stopped operating. And Ye Xiao didn't put any treasures and materials into the Space anymore.
Most of the things he collected were stored in the treasure stock of the Ling-Bao Hall. And he just kept the others in the stock of the House of Ye. They were all kept in his own places anyway. He just didn't put anything in the Space anymore.
And he stopped cultivating in the Space anymore.
[You don't want me to cultivate in my own place? Fine. I am going to starve you to death.
I bet you already got used to absorbing huge amount of resources. I am sure you won't hold it long like this...
I want to know which one of us will be the one to give in first.]
A vicious smile appeared on his mouth like he was a treacherous man.
At the moment, a moaning sound came from his bed. The girl finally woke up again. Within several days, the girl had woken up several times. She still couldn't move herself though. And she couldn't talk. She could only blink and roll her eyeballs. That was it.
This time, she was a lot better. She could actually make a moaning sound. That was a progress though.
Ye Xiao was happy, ’’Are you awake?’’
The girl looked at him with confusion in her eyes. She was instinctively on the alert against strangers. She was fearful. Her lips suddenly moved. After a long struggle, she finally spoke, ’’Who... Who are you?’’
’’Cough cough. My name is Ye. You can call me Lord Ye.’’ Ye Xiao smiled and said, ’’Who are you, lady? What is your name and where do you live?’’
The girl was still confused. She looked at him and spoke with difficulty, ’’Where is this place? And who am I?’’
Ye Xiao was shocked.
[What? What did she say?
Did she just ask me where this place is? Oh! That is normal though. But the latter question?
'Who am I'?
You don't know who you are?
Even you don't know your own name, how can I know?]
However, she was badly hurt at the moment, and she could only speak with great difficulty, so Ye Xiao didn't want to offend her. He just rubbed his head and said, ’’What is your name? Do you... Do you still remember?’’
The girl looked at him confusedly. Her eyes were actually like a child's eyes. She said, ’’I only remember that my name is... Bing-Er...’’
Her eyes were so pure that they shouldn't be an about eighteen years old girl's eyes.
Her eyes were extremely pure and full of naivety. It was normal for some little kids, but... a seventeen or eighteen years old girl?
Ye Xiao was worried. He spoke in a deep voice, ’’Bing-Er... What a nice name.’’
The girl showed happiness for the first time in her eyes. She was happy that somebody praised her about her name.
’’How old are you, Bing-Er?’’ Ye Xiao asked.
’’I... I am six...’’ The girl felt sad. She tried so hard to roll her eyes. She looked around the room and spoke fearfully, ’’I... How did I get here... Shouldn't I be in the broken temple... I...’’
Ye Xiao was stunned.
What did she say? Does she even know what she's talking about?
Looking at the girl, who had to be at least seventeen years old and was so beautiful that she could enchant any man in the world, Ye Xiao didn't know whether to laugh or to cry.
So he asked her a few more questions. The girl had forgotten everything about herself, except that she was only six years old. According to her own words, she used to beg for living. She was an orphan without parents. Nobody cared about her since she was a child. The only company she had was a dog...
Now that she lost the dog... she actually got beaten by a villain. The villain had eaten her dog... Before finishing the talk, she started to weep sadly.
It seemed that she had lost all of her memory after the year she was six.
Ye Xiao rolled up his eyes. He was so speechless.
He couldn't believe that he had actually found himself in one of the most ridiculous situation in the world.
That was memory loss.
And it was a time-phased memory loss.
Apparently, the girl had lost most of her memory after being shocked, getting injured, and falling from a high space... She had met the end of her life and suffered a series of strikes...
Ye Xiao didn't know what to do and kept rubbing his head.
He was thinking about some realistic problem, [What should I do if I have to face the most charming and beautiful girl in the world... and she turns out to only have a six years old girl's mind?]
He didn't know what to do, so he asked Song Jue for help. Song Jue was surely no better than Ye Xiao on this. So they both sighed.
Song Jue stopped telling Ye Xiao to marry the girl.
He would be no different with a monster if he said so.
Ye Xiao sighed. There were numerous guys in the house of Ye. They were surely not careful enough in taking care of him. Now that a maid finally fell from the sky for him, he should be so happy about it. However, he was thinking maybe the truth was the other way around. Ye Xiao himself would be the one taking care of the girl.
He had no choice but to be a 'male maid' for her since she was lying on his bed.
When he returned to his room, the girl was staring at him with big eyes, which were so pure and clean. She actually felt happy when she saw Ye Xiao got in. Her eyes were full of dependence. She looked at Ye Xiao and said, ’’Brother, you are back.’’
Ye Xiao smiled, ’’Hmm. You are seriously hurt. Take care of yourself first. When you are better, let me take you out and play. I will bring you to see the goldfish...’’
’’Goldfish? What is it?’’ The girl was delighted, ’’I have never seen such a thing! Is it beautiful? Is it shiny like gold?’’
Ye Xiao nodded, ’’We have goldfish in our yard. You can see them when you step out of the door. Be good. Drink the medicine first. Good girl...’’
He was holding a silver spoon and feeding the girl one spoon of medicine after another. The girl had swallowed two spoonfuls of medicine when she suddenly twitched her lips. Tears came down from her eyes. She spoke chokingly, ’’Brother, you are so kind to me... Nobody ever treated me with kindness like this... They just beat me up...’’
Ye Xiao felt so sorry for her. He spoke gently, ’’Don't worry. Nobody will dare to bully you as long as I am here.’’
’’Hmm.’’ The girl answered him with a strong tone. She stared at Ye Xiao with eyes full of happiness and dependance.
She also felt that it was unbelievable. She was afraid that she would lose him.
After giving her some food, Ye Xiao took the dinnerware out. He heard the girl murmuring, ’’Am I dreaming... Such a nice bed and such a nice person... I don't want to wake up from such a sweet dream...’’
Ye Xiao smiled, but felt grieved about it.
