Chapter 283: Lose Her Surname
After a long time, Mai Qi finally spoke.
Her voice was a little hoarse.
“Nanxing, if I were kicked out of my house, will you take me in” Mai Qi asked.
“Silly, do you even need to ask As long as this house is still around, this room will always be yours!” I promised.
Mai Qi did not say anything.
I waited patiently.
“Nanxing, arent you worried that youll bring trouble to yourself by helping me” Mai Qis voice was weak and helpless.
“Trouble Do you not know me Trouble finds me even if I dont want them.
Dont worry, Ill be there for you! But this time, it wasnt me who saved you but your brother did.” I did not take credit for things I did not do.
Mai Qi said faintly, “He only saved me because you told him to.”
I gently squeezed her hand.
“Mai Qi, dont be silly.
He didnt know you were in danger.
When I told him, he immediately took action.
If you had to depend on me and Sky City, you would have to wait much longer.”

“Sky City.” Mai Qi mumbled.
“Nanxing, will you let me join Sky City” Mai Qis mood fluctuated.
I scratched my head.
“Mai Qi, Sky City is nothing without Jing Tian and my little uncle.
It is more like a childrens toy.
It is not that I dont want you but you should stay away from these things.
After all, you have a great future ahead of you.” I persuaded her.
Mai Qi sighed softly and said nothing else.
“Mai Qi” I called out to her softly.
She didnt say anything.
“Fine, Ill officiate you as the princess of Sky City!”
“I dont want to be the princess!” She said resolutely.
“Then do you want to be Sky Citys lackey” I joked.
I was only toying with her.
But to my shock, Mai Qi said, “Yes, Ill be a normal lackey!”
“Mai Qi, what happened Will you tell me If its really that serious, you can stay here forever.
Youll be Sky Citys Sister Mai.
Doesnt that sound better” I gave her an official title on the spot.
Then again, what else could I do
“Really Do you mean it” She made me promise her with a sobbing voice.
“Okay, from now on, I shall be Sky Citys Sister Qi.
I refuse to use that surname anymore!” Mai Qi announced casually like she was telling me nothing important.
I was confused.
I had to ask, “You dont want the surname anymore What do you mean”
Mai Qi stated, “It means what it means! I dont want the surname, Mai anymore.
I dont feel qualified to use my fathers surname; I cant share my brothers surname because its his mothers; I refuse to use the surname Mai anymore because I dont want to be her tools to compete for power! I will be Sister Qi then!”
I couldnt help but laugh.
“But you have to have a surname.”
Mai Qi didnt even hesitate.
“Then itll be Nan.
My name will be Nan Qi from now on! Nan Qi, Nanxing, that sounds perfect!”
I did not know how to respond.
We talked about nonsense and just like that, Mai Qis mood gradually improved.
I realized that Mai Qis biggest enemy was herself.
The best way to help her was to distract her mind with other topics to talk about.
Actually, Mai Qi was very good at hiding her emotions..
She merely did not want to pretend around me.
