Xi Ying didn’t say anything and just stared at him quietly.
“I know why you’re looking at me this way; do you want to know why my attitude has suddenly changed?” Lu Zijin scratched his head, embarrassed.
“I was too extreme before, Bing Ning. Ya’er, a mechanical girl, was the only one who made a mistake, which has nothing to do with you.
You hadn’t been created when she did something.
I was the one who got trapped. I’m sorry.”
On the other hand, Xi Ying paid no attention to his words.
“Lu Zijin,” she says. Her voice was hoarse, and she appeared to be crying.
“What’s the matter with you, Bing Ning?” Lu Zijin asked, concerned when he noticed Xi Ying about to cry.
“Is the wound hurting you? I really… This is a complicated situation; I will explain it to you later!
If your wound hurts, I will treat it!
You were sleeping, and I just cleaned it up for you…”
“Lu Zijin.” Xi Ying called him again.
Crystal tears flowed from the corners of her eyes.
“I’m here.” Lu Zijin grasped Xi Ying’s hand.
“I’m already a human being.” Xi Ying said something shocking.
“Wait, what?” Lu Zijin’s grip tightened, and his pupils shrank unexpectedly!
It can’t be!
Isn’t the robot transforming into a pseudo-human robot to acquire a human body?
But Bing Ning looks exactly the same as before!
“So, I was poisoned…” Xi Ying raised a weak smile.
Her eyes were filled with tears, and she exuded a sense of desolate beauty.
“You…” Lu Zijin’s voice had gone silent.
His eyes welled up with tears.
He didn’t want to believe it, but his reasoning had already convinced him.
Bing Ning would never make such a joke.
“Bing Ning…why didn’t you say it sooner? Why, why, no…” Lu Zijin lowered his head, and his tears fell on the sheets.
He bit his lower lip desperately to keep from crying.
“Don’t blame yourself, Lu Zijin.” Xi Ying extended her hand, attempting to touch Lu Zijin’s head.
Just like when she previously consoled Lu Zijin.
However, she is now completely powerless.
She didn’t even have the strength to touch Lu Zijin.
“I love you, Lu Zijin, and I have never blamed you.”
Because she couldn’t touch him, Xi Ying chose to comfort him through words rather than touch.
“It’s just that I can’t accompany you on your journey through life. I’m sorry.
But I don’t… want you to be… with… someone else after… I’m gone.”
Xi Ying had to stop every time she said a few words due to a lack of strength.
“I want you to remember me for the rest of your life.
Remember the mechanical girl who used to help a homeless man and a middle-aged aunt in their fight at the bookstore’s entrance?
I once took you to cut your hair to look nice, buy new clothes, and become a handsome guy;
Once shared a half-priced ice cream cone with you, cooked for you, once silently watched you sleep;
I used to feed you red wine and entwine your lips and teeth…”
Xi Ying gasped for air after saying so much.
And Lu Zijin was already crying.
“Bing Ning, Bing Ning, don’t say it…”
He was sobbing uncontrollably.
“You are my man, Lu Zijin. Ah… my man is really handsome. Even when he’s crying, even when his eyes are red and swollen, he’s still the most handsome man in the universe.”
