Chapter 31: Garnering Hatred (2)
Aunt Wang was shocked.
Ye Yu knew very well that it was not time to value friendship over safety, so after bowing at Aunt Wang, she immediately returned to her room.
The moment she walked in, her gaze first met with a pair of sparkling and bright pitch-black bestial eyes.
“Did you hear what I was saying outside?”
“…” 500 silvers nodded and walked to her side. The thick and heavy paws made no noise despite walking on the ground.
Ye Yu asked again, “If we met face to face with Ye Residence’s people, do you think you can still escape?”
500 silvers paused for a second, seemingly tilting his head and pondering over this, nodding after.
Ye Yu let out a sigh of relief and said, “Then let’s go to the village entrance.”
She reached down to caress 500 silvers’ ears and the latter opened his mouth, biting her.
Ye Yu felt her line of sight became blurry and then she was lifted upon 500 silvers’ back by her waist once again.
She couldn’t help but chuckle after snapping out of her trance. “It seems like I haven’t lived in this world in vain after meeting you.” Ye Yu reached over and stroked 500 silvers’ soft fur on his neck. “Little thing.”
500 silvers seemed to be unpleased with this address and twisted his neck, ducking her touch. In the end, he howled a bit and then pushed the door open with his head, walking to the yard.
Aunt Wang who hadn’t left the yard was shocked at the sight.
Ye Yu looked over and smiled, saying, “Aunt Wang, I’ll be going now.”
Before Aunt Wnag could reply, the impatient 500 silvers already extended his limbs and quickly ran after the wind, leaving Aunt Wang behind and sighing. “I haven’t seen the little black puppy for a while…and he’s already gotten this fat?…”
The Yun Village wasn’t big itself, so they arrived outside the village in seconds due to 500 silvers’ rapid speed.
Within moments, Ye Yu saw the ‘Ye’ banners being waved around by the soldiers heading here from afar.
500 silvers turned his head around to look at Ye Yu, questioning her; he seemed to find it strange why she didn’t just leave.
Ye Yu stroked 500 silvers’ fur and then faintly smiled, saying, “If I leave in advance, based on Princess Ye’s personality, she probably won’t give up until she ruined the lands of Yun Village….After all, I had lived here for a while and I was the one who caused the trouble, so it’s unreasonable for me to let innocent people receive the punishment for me.”
500 silvers gave her a look of disapproval, but he turned his head around in the end and scratched against the ground with his sharp claws.
A few deep ditches appeared on the rock-hard ground. Although Ye Yu didn’t see that, she could tell that 500 silvers disapproved of it, making her laugh.
“Don’t worry. I won’t delay you from running away. The moment I meet face to face with Princess Ye, you run east while I run west. In terms of garnering hatred, I’m better than you.”
Although 500 silvers didn’t understand what Ye Yu was talking about, he understood the overall meaning. Right then, he unbelievably turned around to look at Ye Yu. The latter was afraid that he might sprain his neck with how quick he was being.
“What’s the expression, eh?”
Ye Yu reached down to rub 500 silvers’ head, but she missed it. In other words, not only did she miss it, after the same time she finished talking, she clearly saw the pitch-black eyes flickering with hatred.
Then, the animal that she was lying on suddenly took a few steps back and she fell on the soft bestial back unexpectedly.
Ye Yu instinctively wrapped her arms around 500 silvers’ back and before she could react, she already felt the wind sweeping past her ears.
500 silvers rushed in the direction of the Ye Residence’s soldiers and they were extremely quick, making Ye Yu think of the feeling of riding a rollercoaster with the wind directly hitting her face.
But before she could see the scene in front of her, she felt an angry howl coming from under her. At the same time, there were frantic voices.
“A beast is attacking!”
“Protect the princess!”
“Guards, formation. Guards, formation!”
Following that, Ye Yu felt herself spinning around violently within the air and the wind brushing by her ears.
After a while, she didn’t know how long but all the disordered voices finally faded. Even the wind gradually calmed down, leading her to open her eyes.
The author has something to say:
Puppy: So angry. She wants to run off again.
