Chapter 91 – Is She His Death?
Ye Zhen suddenly raised her head fearlessly and looked at him in the eye.
Does he still remember? Remember when she told him that her little name was Yao Yao?
Then how could he still regard Lu Wushuang as her? Seeing Ye Zhen’s reaction, Mo Rongzhan’s eyes sank, “Answer me.”
“Never heard of someone bearing the same name.” was her brief answer.
A flash of hurt crossed across the emperor’s face and a pregnant silence followed. The woman would be the death of him! He thought to himself.
After some moment, Mo Rongzhan nodded in surrender and asked her another thing.
“Were you the woman in the hot spring pool that day?” he suddenly asked.
Ye Zhen’s face paled slightly. Did he want to settle accounts?
Seeing her face, Mo Rongzhan snorted softly. “You are quite daring, even dared to fight me?”
“On that night, this miss didn’t see his majesty clearly and deemed him as a commoner…”
Ye Zhen looked terrified, as if she had just found out that the man on that day was the emperor. But she wasn’t afraid even a bit.
Her eyes were slightly cold. She really wanted to make a face of him, but as a matter of fact, being emperor changed him. His skin got really thick.
“Get out of here!” Mo Rongzhan wanted to change her name, but this would make Lu Wushuang find clues, and he waved his hand wearily.
Ye Zhen gave a salute and took the horse and left.
Mo Rongzhan’s eyes looked at the rope in his hands, may be a lot of people knew this knot. Lu Yaoyao knowing this know didn’t mean that she and his Yao Yao was the same person.
How Lu Wushuang got the jade pendant was one thing he needed to know.
After a long walk, Ye Zhen turned over her horse and quickly left the forest without looking back.
Why was Mo Rongzhan still looking for her? Wasn’t he convinced that Lu Wushuang was the one who saved him? Unexpectedly, just by a knot, he had already been suspicious. If he had not suspected Lu Wushuang, he would not have been so sensitive.
Since when did he suspect Lu Wushuang?
She remembered the two years when her soul floated in the palace. He had never doubted Lu Wushuang, at least he didn’t look like it. Even if Lu Wushuang did not remember the secret code, he was very kind to her.
But in this case, Mo Rongzhan already suspected Lu Wushuang.
Ye Zhen was confused, the turn out of events were very different from what she witnessed when she was still a vengeful ghost…
A shallow smile rose from the corner of Ye Zhen’s mouth. She was still thinking about how to crack Lu Wushuang’s lies. But it seemed that she did not need to start at all. Mo Rongzhan had already questioned her and would have questioned Lu Wushuang not long after. Wouldn’t he have Lu Lingzhi questioned too?
Deep in her musings, she didn’t even notice that she had already arrived in the Zhuangzi.
“Yao Yao, where have you been? I’ve been looking for you for half a day!” When Ye Zhen came out of the woods, he saw Mister Shan coming with his horse.
Ye Zhen jumped off his horse and laughed, “I beat two pheasants and went back to make hot soup in a pot tonight.”
“I have seen imperial guards just now. Have you met anyone?” Mister Shan asked in intuitive voice.
“I didn’t see the guards, but when I met a child who fell into a trap, I rescued him and left.” Ye Zhen said with a smile.
Mister Shan’s eyes flashed slightly, “A child?”
On his way, Mister Shan have seen imperial guards accompany a child out of the forest. Those people have already gone to Chengde Mountain Villa. Was that a child an imperial prince?
Ye Zhen laughed. “I didn’t believe it when the child said he was a prince. A prince doesn’t come here alone so I thought that he was just a son of a hunter. After I rescued him, I let him go back.”
Mister Shan was speechless at Ye Zhen.
