Chapter 2238: His Only Cousin
Translator: Henyee Translations Editor: Henyee Translations
Li Jinnian’s lips twitched coldly. He had never thought of finding kinship in the Li family.
The Li family did not make him feel like blood was thicker than water, but the Fu family had made him feel warm since he was young. The Li family made him feel like he did not have a home, while the Fu family was his ‘home’.
Now that his family was reunited and had finally met his ‘cousin’, he waited for her to speak.
Thinking about how Ye Jian would call him softly later, the cold Li Jinnian became much gentler. His cold eyes even flickered.
The usually calm Demon King was a little agitated.
He would work hard to be Ye Jian’s good ‘cousin’. He would make her trust him wholeheartedly in the future. He would support her and give her the best of everything!
The title of ‘cousin’ was a responsibility he would work very hard to complete to perfection.
Li Jinnian, who was waiting for Ye Jian to call him ‘Cousin’, couldn’t help but sit up straight. His heart was racing, and he was a little nervous. His gaze was dark as he waited for Ye Jian to speak.
Old Master Fu calmed down a lot. Seeing that Ye Jian was looking behind him, the sad old man patted the back of Ye Jian’s hand and said kindly, “Child, you and your cousin have to have a good relationship in the future. I’ll only be at ease if you’re doing well. He’s your cousin, your closest cousin.”
Yes, the Demon King was her cousin. He would be her closest and dearest cousin. She could call him that openly.
As Captain Xia had just said, he was the Demon King in the unit and the captain of the soldiers, but at home, he was just her family member and her cousin. Why couldn’t she address him openly?
Since her grandfather had spoken as well, how could she disappoint him?
The atmosphere was oppressive enough. It was better to talk about something more relaxed.
At the thought of this, Ye Jian, whose eyes were red, looked at Li Jinnian with a smile. Under the old man’s expectant gaze, her smile bloomed like a flower. She said sweetly, “Cousin, please take care of me in the future.”
The sweet word ‘cousin’ not only made the old man happy but also made the calm Li Jinnian’s heart tremble. He seemed to hear the sound of flowers blooming in his ears.
Why did he find Ye Jian familiar when he first saw her?
Because blood was thicker than water!
Why did he only want to get close to Ye Jian and look at her?
Because she was his cousin. His only cousin!
“With me around, no one can bully you, including him.” The Demon King who doted on his cousin officially took over, and he secretly vowed to be a good elder cousin who protected Ye Jian.
He glanced at Xia Jinyuan coldly. Then, he couldn’t help but smile. “If he dares to do anything to you, I’ll teach him a lesson.”
Ye Jian immediately laughed out loud. She looked at Captain Xia, who was sitting upright, and looked at Li Jinnian. “Thank you in advance for your hard work in the future.”
“It’s not hard. It’s what I should do,” Li Jinnian replied seriously. He glanced at Xia Jinyuan and retracted his gaze. First, he had to discuss with Xia Jinyuan and tell him not to keep hugging his cousin in the future!
Ye Jian’s smile widened. It felt good to have her ‘cousin’ protecting her. It felt very good!
