“I feel that…my parents are going to use me to repay you.”
Diane had a completely helpless look on her face. “What am I going to do? Do I really have to marry you now?”
Ethan nearly puked blood.
“You’re not willing?” he asked on purpose.
“I’m not worthy of you,” Diane replied him very seriously. “You’re too outstanding.”
“Besides, all of you from this Beggars’ Sect are all too outstanding, so I shouldn’t be a burden to you.”
Ethan suddenly pulled the brakes and parked the car at the roadside, giving Diane a shock.
“What are you doing?!” Diane asked in shock as she patted her own chest.
He shocked her by suddenly pulling the brakes. She hadn’t said whether she was willing or not, so why did he have such a huge reaction?
“I’m very rich,” said Ethan.
“I know. I don’t think I can ever repay what I owe you,” Diane sighed.
She had no idea how rich Ethan was, but it was definitely over 10 million.
“I still have many more friends.”
“I know. Your fellow Beggars’ Sect disciples are all over the world, and every single one of you is a great talent.”
Diane thought that she was pretty outstanding, but the more she knew Ethan, the more ordinary she felt.
April was right. She wasn’t worthy of Ethan, so she shouldn’t hold him back.
“But all this added together cannot be compared to you.”
This sudden statement from Ethan stunned Diane.
“You are the most outstanding, not me,” Ethan continued seriously. “I’ve always felt that I’m the one who’s not worthy of you, that’s why I’ve been working very hard, because I hope that one day I’ll earn the right to stand next to you.”
Diane’s eyes lost focus and her heart started beating quickly. She didn’t know what to say.
Was she that outstanding?
“Your kindheartedness is the most beautiful thing in this world.”
Ethan took a deep breath. “Can I give you something?”
Diane nodded almost mechanically.
She owed Ethan too much to repay him anyway. Her parents were definitely giving her to him.
But Ethan didn’t take out anything valuable. He held out a crinkled sweet wrapper in his palm.
But to Ethan, this was the most precious thing in the world.
He took Diane’s hand and carefully put the sweet wrapper in her hand as he gently said, “After you eat this sweet, your life will become sweeter and sweeter.”
It was as if lightning struck Diane’s brain. Diane felt that these words seemed very familiar.
This sweet wrapper…wasn’t this a sweet that her own family used to manufacture when she was very young?
She used to carry a few on herself all the time and gave it to those who had nothing to eat.
She wished that everyone could live well, and she wanted to give warmth and strength to everyone.
But this sweet wrapper design hadn’t been in production for more than a decade now, so why did Ethan have one of these?
“Diane, be my wife, ok?” Ethan asked in an extremely serious voice.
“You’re worthy of me, definitely worthy. From today onwards, you’re my wife. For real.”
Diane was feeling giddy.
She didn’t know how she should react.
There was a blurry image in her mind that was slowly becoming clearer. This sweet wrapper. These words. And Ethan in front of her. He was too wonderful to her. He was equally indescribably wonderful to her parents.
There was nothing she could complain about him. Besides, they were already husband and wife since they were legally registered.
But she felt that she wasn’t worthy of Ethan and wanted to let him go, but he refused and insisted on being with her.
“Should…should I be agreeing to it?”
Diane bit her lip. Her face was all red and her heart was about to leap out of her chest. “Then…then I’ll give it a shot? If we’re not suitable for each other or you have a better option, then just tell me, ok?”
Ethan shook his head. “You’re the option for me. In this life, you’re my only option.”
Diane felt like her entire body was numb.
This was the first time she realized that it was so lovely to hear Ethan say such passionate words.
Diane couldn’t stand it anymore. She looked down, her face so red that even her neck was red too and she shyly nodded. She didn’t know what else she could do besides nod.
She decided that she could just give it a shot. Even if it was just courtship, she had to try before knowing if it would work out.
Ethan looked at her reaction and took a deep breath. Did Diane not know how mesmerizing she was?
The car started again.
“Can I take it back?”
