Chapter 30: Garnering Hatred (1)
“Great master Ye! How are you still so calm? Quickly pack your things and run off!”
The person speaking had covered his face while saying this, so before Ye Yu could react, she was stunned. “You are?…”
The man flipped the cloth over his head and said, “Great master Ye, you don’t remember me?”
Ye Yu stared at him and realized that he was the shopkeeper of the carpenter store who she instructed for him to dig for the gold in his backyard.
“You’re the shopkeeper. You are…”
When he realized that Ye Yu recognized him, the shopkeeper of the carpenter store didn’t dare to say anything more, covering his face with the cloth again.
“Great master Ye, thank goodness that you hadn’t been going to the teahouse lately. The Princess Ye who you offended a few days ago seems to be scouting out information about you in secret within the devil city daily. I heard that she was unable to acquire any information on your background and origin, so she led people from the Ye Residence and is heading here right now. Why are you not packing your things and running away? Ordinary cultivators can’t offend the people of Ye Residence and its power today.”
Ye Yu was indeed shocked when she heard the news, since she thought that Princess Ye was an important side lead in this book. Even if she had a slight conflict with herself, nothing big should really happen. After all, in people’s normal “life experience,” she doesn’t even exist.
But looking at this, she seemed to have become the odd one out in this world. The established plot might change because of her presence now.
Ye Yu suddenly thought of the system notification that “plot is deviating,” and she couldn’t help but knit her eyebrows.
Right now, the shopkeeper of the carpenter store couldn’t hold it in anymore, saying, “Great master Ye has done me a huge favor, so I risked the danger and came to notify you. Based on the time right now, Ye Residence’s people should be almost outside the village, so I can’t stay here any longer either. Great master Ye, please don’t act according to impulse!”
“Many thanks, shopkeeper.”
Ye Yu snapped out of her trance and clasped her hands together to express her gratitude, watching the shopkeeper leave.
When she was about to walk back into the yard, she saw Aunt Wang standing there and looking at her in unease.
“Lady Ye Yu, did something happen?”
Ye Yu sighed and said, “Sorry for causing trouble for you during my time here, Aunt Wang. For your safety, it looks like I can’t stay here any longer either.”
Aunt Wang was stunned right there and couldn’t snap out of her trance for a while. “Lady Ye Yu, you, you are leaving?”
The elderly lady was dumbstruck, feeling defeated by the news and finally asked with choking emotions after a while.
“…” Ye Yu clenched her fists and coldly glanced in the direction of the devil city.
Originally, she thought that she didn’t need to live such a busy and worrisome life after transmigrating to a world unrelated to her… but it seems like she had thought of it too simple.
No matter what world, without her own power, she will never be able to live happily and carefree.
Don’t even desire having freedom.
Ye Yu slowly withdrew her gaze and quickly walked to the corner of the yard, rummaging for a bag through the closet full of miscellaneous goods.
There were only 2 bright red fruits and a bunch of accessories, golds, and silvers in the bag.
Ye Yu quickly split the gold and silver, placing a portion in her bag and the other one was placed back into the cabinet.
“Aunt Wang.” She turned around to look at the dejected elderly lady and at the same time, she picked up a red fruit and walked over. “You can use these golds and silvers as you wish; I’m trying to repay you for saving me. This thing should be beneficial to your body, but if you are worried, you can give a little bit to animals and have them test it out…”
After Ye Yu explained the situation, she bowed at the elderly lady.
“There will be a group of people here to cause me trouble, so please remember to not mention my existence. In the village, I had also concealed my tracks, so as long as you don’t mention it yourself, no one should know.”
The wrinkles on Aunt Wang’s face deepened a lot and she reached over to grab Ye Yu, “Lady Ye Yu…you’re really going to leave?”
Ye Yu clenched her fists, but maintained a calm and relaxed smile on her face.
“Mhm. When Ye Residence is massacred in the future, I will definitely step on their blood and come back to visit you.”
