"Sign this divorce agreement and go to the Civil Affairs Bureau with Felicity tomorrow."
William Lu raised his head and saw his mother-in-law, Rebecca Zhang, throwing two sheets of paper in front of him in disgust.
A beautiful woman with a pale face stood behind her.
She was William's wife, Felicity Bai.
Everyone in Qena City knew about her.
She was blessed with outstanding beauty, but her marriage was inferior and lowly.
Everyone in Qena City knew that she married a good-for-nothing guy.
Seeing that Felicity was as cold as ice, William's heart ached. His hands trembled as he picked up the divorce papers.
Finally, the day was arriving.
When Felicity saw William picking up the agreement, her expression darkened and she turned her face away.
She had given up on her husband, who had been protecting her for the past ten years.
"William, I still remember!"
"Ten years ago, on a snowy night..."
"You were dressed in rags and held a wooden stick in your hand. You didn't know me but in order to protect me, you were bitten by stray dogs all over your body, still, you refused to retreat.
"Using the stick as a sword, you became my knight in shining armor!"
"From then on, I began to admire you."
"You are a hero in my heart."
"I still remember your courage. What about you?
"Over the past few years, you have lost all your enthusiasm and courage..."
"Look at yourself now. You speak softly every day. You even refused to retaliate whenever I hit or scolded you. Are you still a man?"
"I really don't want to see you like this..."
"I have been waiting for you for ten years, but you have also let me down for ten years."
"If only you had taken a stand and objected to these divorce papers today!"
"Then, I would have given myself to you for the rest of my life!"
"Unfortunately, you didn't..."
"You didn't even have the courage to keep your wife.“
"Perhaps it'd be better if we just end this here..."
At the thought of this, Felicity could no longer hold back the tears in her eyes and turned to leave.
However, Rebecca looked at William with disgust, feeling extremely satisfied.
Ten years ago, her silly daughter had saved a homeless kid and insisted that he stay at their home. Since then, the kid had been in their home for ten years.
Her daughter even tried her best to get everyone's approval of this boy. Three years ago, she finally got married to him.
The news caused a sensation in the whole of Qena City.
The Bai family, which was revered by many because of Felicity's beauty, had become the laughing stock due to this matter. Since then, the family had been unable to recover from it.
The goddess of the city had married a poor worthless guy.
This joke had been circulating in Qena City for three years.
Now, her daughter finally understood.
As long as her daughter divorced this guy, she would be able to start a new life in Qena City with her incomparable appearance.
Fernando Lin, who had been pursuing Felicity for a long time, seemed to be a good candidate. His family was rich and powerful. Recently, the Bai family had also asked for help from the Lin family.
"Sign it! My daughter is going on a date with Fernando Lin tomorrow." Rebecca cursed at William's unmoving figure.
William sighed and put away the divorce agreement. He said coldly, "Just give me a moment, I was making soup for Felicity."
Rebecca looked disdainfully at William. Over the past ten years, this guy had always put on a sour face, as if he didn't take the Bai family seriously at all.
Only Felicity could make him smile.
"Who do you think you are!"
"You'd better sign it!"
Rebecca urged again and then left the kitchen.
After they left, William suddenly smiled bitterly, and his eyes were filled with tears.
He looked at the pot of bubbling soup, and his eyes were burning.
"Felicity, do you know why I don't fight or retaliate all these years..."
"Because you are sick."
"Your body is weak, so you cannot be provoked."
"You would always get sick at the end of the month, and it was unbearable for you every time."
"So I just couldn't bear to aggravate you even further...."
"If it weren't for the fact that I have added medicinal herbs to this pot of soup every month, you wouldn't have been able to last for more than fifteen years..."
"Just one more year, and you would be completely recovered."
"It is a pity, just one year..."
"Why can't you give me another year?"
"Are you really that disappointed in me?"
"My true identity is something you still do not know!"
"Because of that one sentence of yours, because you said that you needed company, I had stayed by your side for ten years!"
At the thought of this, William's heart ached terribly.
But at this time, his cell phone rang.
He picked up the phone and frowned slightly.
It was a phone number that had not appeared for ten years.
Was it possible that his family...
"Hello," William answered immediately.
At the other end of the phone came an old and sorrowful voice. "Young Master, the Old Master had passed away last night..."
His words were like a thunderclap, and William was in shock.
"Grandpa. He has passed away..." William lamented in his heart.
William was born into an aristocratic family with famous medicinal skills. They were the Lu family from the North.
His parents died early. He had been envied and hated by other people in the family because of his talents since he was a child.
His grandfather was the only one who doted upon him.
But in the end, in order to keep him safe for the rest of his life, his grandfather had faked William's death and sent him out of the toxic household. He wanted to keep him safe from all the pernicious politics and ulterior motives in the family.
It was also on the first night when he was wandering on the street that he met Felicity, the girl who had made his heart ache for the longest time...
"Young Master, the Old Master has been paying attention to you in silence, all these years. He has also been cultivating power for you. There is also a letter he wants to pass to you. I will pick you up now," The man on the phone said chokingly.
William agreed. After hanging up the phone, he sat directly on the ground.
"The one who often carried me on his shoulder and liked to stab my little face with his stubble..."
"Who sneaked into my room in the middle of the night, taught me medicinal skills, and knocked on my head whenever I fell asleep..."
William did not notice that his face was full of tears.
It was not until thick smoke and a smell of burnt food wafted over that William's attention was roused.
"Oh no, the soup is burnt!"
William quickly got up, but it was too late.
At this time, Rebecca rushed in directly from the outside, covered her nose and shouted, "F*ck! Are you out of your mind? Are you trying to burn the house down and take revenge on the Bai family?!"
"Why is your heart so wicked?"
"Felicity must have been blind to have married you!"
"Sign the divorce agreement now! I can't wait any longer!"
Behind Rebecca, Felicity's eyes were gloomy, but she didn't speak.
"William, I didn't know you could shed tears too.."
"Are you crying because our fate has come to an end?"
"Unfortunately, it is useless."
"It's been ten years. Do you even understand my feelings and intention?"
"What I need you to shed for me, is not the tears of cowardice and helplessness."
"What I need from you is your courage and willingness to live for me!"
"If you dare to live for me, I will dare to die for you..."
"You don't understand..."
William had started to space out...
The pain of loss and cold words severely stabbed William's heart!
Suddenly, he seemed to have come to a realisation!
His gaze suddenly turned sharp.
He raised his head and looked at Rebecca and Felicity.
One of them looked arrogant and ruthless!
The other was cold as ice. Ten years of tenderness had turned into desperation!
"I do not care about such a family!"
"You'd better not regret it!"
"My grandfather was the only one in the world who loved me and cherished me."
"I do not need your sympathy or pity. From now on, I will walk this path alone!"
Thinking of this, William suddenly stood up, grabbed the divorce papers on the table and signed them!
After signing the papers, he glanced at Felicity again and walked out of the kitchen without looking back!
His glance shocked Felicity.
The look in his eyes...
Cold and arrogant!
He looked like a wounded but stubborn lone wolf!
Watching him leave in big strides, Felicity thought she saw an illusion!
It was as if the indifference in her eyes had shot through his body like arrows, leaving it battered in blood!
It was as if every step he took was filled with pain, causing him immense grief and hurt.
His gaze, and his figure!
It looked exactly the same as it was ten years ago, when William had rescued her and turned to leave!
But now, it was not his body that was hurt, it was his heart...
Thinking of this, Felicity's tears fell and she rushed towards the door!
When Rebecca saw Felicity chasing after William in regret, she cursed loudly and chased after her daughter furiously.
At the door, Felicity saw a cold and arrogant William.
He seemed to be waiting for something...
Was he waiting for her to persuade him to stay?
Felicity wanted to approach him, but she suddenly felt disheartened. She retreated after taking a step towards him.
Why should she ask him to stay...
"It would be better to cut off our relationship than to continue hating each other. From now on we will be apart from each other. And we'll finally be happy..." Felicity thought in her heart.
Rebecca rushed up to them and scolded William, "You are so arrogant! How dare you give us this kind of attitude? For so many years, you ate and drank from ours. Even when our Bai family feeds a dog, it knows how to be grateful! Even when you got married, you couldn't even give us a wedding gift. Did my daughter even say anything then? How dare you put this show in front of me?"
Seeing that her mother still refused to give up, Felicity hurried up and tried to dissuade her.
However, Rebecca sneered and said, "Felicity, can't you tell what kind of person he is yet? Do you really think he was going to leave? He is a good-for-nothing without any money. Where can he go? He deliberately pretends to be pitiful to get your sympathy."
"I've seen through him a long time ago!"
Felicity couldn't bear to see William being humiliated and yet not retaliate. She choked and said, "Mom, stop it. You know he's penniless. It'd be better for us to part ways amicably. Do you have any money in your pocket? Can you give some to him..."
Rebecca looked at the quiet William with red eyes, she felt very happy!
"Ten years. After enduring him for ten years, it finally came to an end!"
"I'm going to let this guy starve to death on the street without any money!"
"He ought to know that if it weren't for us and the Bai family, he wouldn't be better than a stray dog on the streets!"
Seeing that Rebecca had refused to help William for the last time, Felicity sighed and turned back to take the money.
Rebecca's gaze suddenly turned stern. She quickly pulled Felicity back.
At the end of her sight, a black line slowly appeared.
"Felicity, look, is that a Rolls-Royce Phantom? It's the first time I've seen it. It's so beautiful!"
"I wonder which rich man is driving it. If you get in the car, it will be a perfect match - a beautiful lady sitting in a luxurious car. You should live this kind of life, do you understand?"
However, Felicity's eyes were fixed on William. She didn't even look at the luxurious car.
At this moment, Rebecca suddenly cried out!
The Rolls-Royce came to a stop in front of their door!
Rebecca suddenly became excited!
"I know! It must be Fernando who had come to pick you up for a candlelight dinner!"
"I told him today that you were going to divorce this good-for-nothing. He must be very happy."
"I didn't expect that his family would be so rich. Felicity, your good days are coming!"
Hearing this, Felicity's expression turned ugly.
Her mother was going too far.
William was still here. She had deliberately said these words to embarrass William even more!
Rebecca snorted when she noticed Felicity's eyes were on William. Then she took out a stack of money and gave it directly to William!
"D*mn it! I'll just assume that I stepped on sh*t and lost 1,000 yuan!"
"It's better to give the money to a beggar than to him!"
"At least the beggar knows how to be grateful!"
"Get out of my way! Do you hear me? My daughter is going to have a date with her new boyfriend."
A driver wearing white gloves stood by the car. He then opened the door and greeted William with a respectful posture.
Seeing this gesture, Rebecca excitedly pushed Felicity towards the car and urged her to hurry.
On the other hand, William's hand was stuffed with a thousand yuan. He suddenly sneered.
"Money..." He thought to himself.
"Everything in the world is for the sake of money."
"And everyone strives in this world for the sake of money."
"Money is nothing!"
"I have more than enough money!"
"I have power that can conquer the world!"
"It's just that I don't care!"
"All I want is my grandfather, and..."
"To grow old with the person I love..."
Thinking of this, William sneered and suddenly tore the banknotes in his hand!
The ten banknotes were thrown into the air, and the shredded pieces fell slowly onto the ground.
He strode towards the car. When Rebecca was about to reprimand him, she saw an extremely shocking scene!
The driver bowed respectfully to William.
William opened the door and got into the car without looking back!
