He really was a lunatic!
Xia Ling was disgusted by the way he was licking her ear and turned her head away.
Soon, she heard a voice not far away. “Xiao Ling!”
She lifted her head and saw that Li Lei was hurriedly running towards her. Beside him, there was a beautiful leopard with a rose-spotted pattern. As he rushed near her and cried out. “Xiao Ling, are you ok?” He then looked at Li Feng, and his expression darkened. “Brother.”
“Have you just noticed your brother?” Li Feng laughed lightly and turned Xia Ling to face him.
“Brother, let go of Xiao Ling.” Li Lei tried to make his voice sound as calm and gentle as possible. In reality, seeing that Xiao Ling was in his temperamental brother’s hands was driving him crazy.
Just now, he was summoned by Old Master Li to have tea with him. In the bamboo garden of Calming Heart Garden, the Old Master said a lot to him. He advised him to give up on Xia Ling and find a better woman to spend his life with. Old Master Li started talking about the history of the Li family, his status to the future of the Li family, the dangers of the family business, and the importance of luck. His speech was emotional, and the main reason for it was to let Li Lei understand that he should give up on Xia Ling.
Xia Ling was definitely not allowed to marry into the Li Family because she was a woman who brought bad luck and would bring misfortune to the family.
In the beginning, Li Lei was still patiently listening and tried to be understanding to his grandfather’s emotional speech. He told him that he should not judge Xiao Ling by her appearance and what a good girl she was… He was worried about Xiao Ling. He had just treated her violently and left her to talk to his grandfather when she was still asleep.
If Xiao Ling woke up and could not find him, would she be angrier?
He had to persuade his grandfather and return to her side quickly.
However, the Old Master was very stubborn and could not be persuaded. He also took his time to engage in small talk with Li Lei.
Li Lei slowly became anxious and uneasy. At this time, he saw a rose-patterned leopard emerging quietly from the bamboo garden. His claws were gently digging the ground, and his tail was swishing about as he looked at him fretfully.
Something terrible must have happened to Xiao Ling!
Er Mao was raised by Li Lei since a young age. The pet and master had formed a tacit understanding of each other, and with a signal, Li Lei immediately understood the message he was trying to convey.
“Grandfather, I’m sorry, but I have something urgent to attend to. I will drink with you another day.” After he said that, Li Lei left in a hurry.
Old Master Li did not stop him.
In fact, he deliberately called for Li Lei to drink tea with him and said a lot of useless things to prevent him from returning to Thunderous Yard. He also sent Su Tang to expel the small star called Ye Xingling. Looking at the time, the small star should have left the island already. Considering Su Tang’s personality, she would have eradicated the small star and caused her to vanish above the ocean.
Xiao Lei will be upset for a while.
After that, he will meet a new lover and marry a more suitable woman.
Old Master Li leisurely opened the lid of the blue and white porcelain teapot and continued his tea-tasting.
However, he was wrong.
If Li Feng did not appear, Xia Ling would have definitely been blown to death at that very moment as planned. However, Li Feng arrived back home at the same time. He saved Xia Ling and used her as a bargaining chip to provoke Li Lei.
“Xiao Lei,” Li Feng’s menacing phoenix eyes were fixed on Li Lei. “I saved your little girlfriend’s life. Aren’t you going to thank me for that? As your brother, do you know how sad I feel?”
Saved Xiao Ling’s life?
Looking at Li Lei’s confused expression, Li Feng laughed and told him what had happened when he just landed.
Li Lei’s back was drenched in cold sweat. He never expected that Su Tang would dare to murder Xiao Ling! If Xiao Ling had really entered the helicopter and the helicopter really exploded… the consequences would be devastating.
He abruptly turned his head to look at Su Tang.
Su Tang’s face turned white after looking at Li Lei’s expression. She stood still and did not dare to move. This was the first time the young master was so cold and ferocious towards her. It was as if an enemy was staring at her. After being glared at for some time, Su Tang already felt that she was as good as dead.
However, Li Lei only glared at her for a short while.
He turned his head back as he had more important things to settle. “Brother, I’m very grateful that you saved Xiao Ling, and I will express my thanks another day. Xiao Ling is not feeling well and just had a scare. I will not trouble you anymore and bring her back to the Thunderous Yard to rest.”
After that, he walked a few steps forward and was about to take Xia Ling from Li Feng’s arms.
However, Li Feng held on to Xia Ling more tightly and wrapped his hand around her neck. His sharp nails were close to her throat and could penetrate through her blood vessels at any time.
Li Lei knew how frightening Li Feng was when he was killing people.
“She doesn’t belong to you anymore, Xiao Lei.” Li Lei laughed evilly as he observed Li Lei trying to suppress his anger and anxiety. He daringly licked Xia Ling’s earlobe and said, “Your Xiao Ling has already been killed by someone… She was killed by the explosion of a bomb above the ocean. This person was saved by me so of course, her life belongs to me.”
He brushed his slender fingers along Xia Ling’s neck. “Little beauty, your life… is mine now.”
He dragged her back and under the protection of a group of subordinates, left the tarmac, and went back to his den.
Li Lei continued to chase them, but he was afraid that they would harm Xia Ling. His men also gathered in succession, including Li Xiaoxing’s father and Li Xiaolong’s uncle… However, they did not bother to work hard and just stared as Xia Ling was dragged away.
That girl was too weak.
She was not worthy of being Young Master Lei’s girlfriend.
As subordinates, they did not wish for Young Master Lei to be with such a woman. If that weak woman became the headmistress of the household, then not only would Young Master Lei not receive any help from her, he would also possibly be dragged down by her!
Perhaps being tortured to death by Young Master Feng was the best ending for that woman.
Li Feng dragged Xia Ling away and disappeared in front of everyone. Deep in the forest of the island, the large gate that guarded the “Snake Temple” was slowly closed.
Looking at the closing door, Li Lei did not waste any time as he ran straight to Calming Heart Garden.
He did not have the time to blame his subordinates nor the time to feel frustration and sorrow. Xiao Ling’s life was in Li Feng’s hands and was in immediate danger. He really could not bear to imagine what he would do if another Su Xue incident happened.
In Calming Heart Garden, Old Master Li was drinking tea as usual.
Li Lei barged in and knelt in front of the Old Master. “Grandfather, I have never begged you for anything before in my life. Just this once, I beg you to save Xiao Ling. I beg you to acknowledge her status!” The rule of “no killing family members” would apply only when Old Master Li acknowledged the status of Xia Ling. Li Feng would then be forced by the family rules to hand her over.
Old Master Li had already heard the news and knew what happened at the hangar.
He lifted his eyelids slightly. “Xiao Lei, I advise you to give up on her. From what I see, the worst ending is not her death, but her being together with you.”
