Chapter 481 - I’m Afraid She Doesn’t Know, I Miss Her So Much
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
Seeing this scene, Ning Li felt a rare sense of bewilderment and helplessness.
The Old Madam Gu had not said anything other than “Yinyin”, but her eyes were filled with deep despair and grief.
She merely stared at her, that tiny bit of light like a candle in the wind.
When the wind blew, it dissipated, leaving only endless darkness and loneliness.
When Ning Li met her gaze, her heart inexplicably felt a little uncomfortable.
She frowned slightly.
Old Madam Gu seemed to be sad because of her, but also not because of her.
She looked at Gu Siyang with a questioning look.
When Gu Siyang saw Old Madam Gu like this, his heart ached terribly.
He had already expected this scene the moment she had shouted “Yinyin” at Ning Li’s figure.
“Grandma, please don’t cry. It’s not good for your health.”
Gu Siyang comforted her in a low voice before giving Ning Li an explanation.
“Ning Li, I’m sorry. My grandma’s eyes aren’t in good condition. She thought you were someone else when she saw you just now.”
Ning Li shook her head.
She had indeed mistaken her for someone else.
But Old Madam Gu’s reaction…? Had she been mistaken for someone else?
At this moment, Old Master Gu and Gu Tingfeng had also rushed over.
They had finally seen Ning Li’s face clearly.
Both of them were stunned, and then their expressions became obscure.
Ning Li was a little lost.
Old Master Gu came to Old Madam Gu’s side and patted her hand.
“Ah Qing, please don’t cry.”
Old Madam Gu was speechless. She continued to stare at Ning Li in a daze as her tears fell uncontrollably.
Gu Siyang went to help her wipe her tears.
Old Master Gu looked at Ning Li again with a complicated expression.
Standing closer, this young girl’s facial features were actually only 30% similar to Yinyin’s.
However, as she was wearing this red riding outfit and riding on a horse, that 30% became 50%, especially when she was wearing a helmet and her wavy hair was pressed behind her shoulders. When the horse ran, her hair had fluttered in the wind.
That shadow had covered her eyes and brows. Only the bridge of her nose, the corners of her lips, and her smooth and perfect pointy chin could be seen.
In a trance, her figure had overlapped with her memory.
Old Master Gu asked, “Did you say that your name is… Ning Li?”
Gu Siyang quickly said, “Grandpa, she is the friend that I mentioned to you and Grandma before!”
Old Master Gu understood.
“Ning Li… was invited by Tinglan?”
Gu Tingfeng also remembered this name.
Ning Li nodded and greeted them one by one.
Yu Pingchuan walked over.
He did not have much contact with the Gu family, but he knew them.
“Old Master Gu, Old Madam Gu.”
Yu Pingchuan was also confused by this sudden scene.
Everything had been fine and Ning Li had been riding her horse smoothly. Who knew that Old Madam Gu would suddenly come over and mistake Ning Li for someone else?
Old Master Gu said, “Siyang, help your grandmother go back to rest.”
Actually, Old Madam Gu’s health was not very good. After today’s shock, she probably would not be able to bear it mentally and physically.
Just as Gu Siyang was about to respond, Old Madam Gu suddenly spoke again.
“Wait a moment.”
She finally seemed to have come back to her senses and realized that she had lost her composure. She hurriedly wiped away the tears at the corner of her eyes and looked at Ning Li again.
That gaze was different from the hopeful and joyful look that she had had initially. It was now more of a deep yearning and silent sorrow.
It was as if she was looking at another person through Ning Li.
Her lips trembled slightly.
“… Yin… Miss Ning Li, can you come over here?”
Her voice was a little hoarse, and she spoke slowly, enunciating each word carefully.
Such a simple sentence seemed to have exhausted all her strength.
Her eyes were red, as if her tears had already dried up, leaving only a dry despair.
Ning Li’s heart skipped a beat. She handed the reins and whip to the horse trainer beside her. After taking half a step forward, she suddenly thought of something. She took her white gloves off and handed them over.
She took a few steps forward and stood in front of Old Madam Gu.
“Old Madam Gu.”
She called out.
Old Madam Gu looked at the face in front of her.
When she had dismounted and looked over, she knew that she was not Yinyin.
But… it had been too long since she had seen Yinyin.
Even though she had flipped through the photos over and over again, she felt as if she had almost forgotten what Yinyin looked like.
But now, looking at such a face, she felt that the hole in the depths of her heart had been filled up.
She had not seen such a living Yin Yin for many years.
Even if it was just a resemblance, she could not help but reach out to touch Ning Li’s face.
However, halfway as she was reaching out, her eyes met the pair of clear peach blossom eyes. She suddenly woke up and felt a dull pain of hesitation and slowness.
Her hand stopped in mid-air and her fingers curled up slightly. In the end, she pulled it back.
It should not be like this.
It should not be like this.
Suddenly, her hand was held by someone.
Old Madam Gu was stunned.
It was Ning Li who held her hand.
Ning Li curved her eyes and smiled.
“Is there something you want to tell me?”
A warm feeling came from her hand.
The girl in front of her originally had a clean and beautiful appearance. However, when she smiled, her eyes and brows curved, adding a little sweetness to it.
Looking at it this way, they looked alike again.
Old Madam Gu was stunned. She then heard her say softly, “It’s fine if you don’t want to say it too.”
Old Madam Gu choked.
“Miss Ning Li, I… I didn’t mean anything else.”
With red eyes, she smiled gently and muttered, “I’m just afraid… afraid that Yinyin doesn’t know…
“I really, really miss her..”
