Chapter 14 – I’m really a Good Person (1)
He wants to see kind of excuse she can come up this time.
Meanwhile, all the other party wanted right now was to prostrate herself in front of him! To ask a question so complicated, at this point was there really no possibility to become friends? She’s not asking for too much like reaching a level where they become best of friends—only as long as he doesn’t think of killing her in the future, that’s already fine!
Ye Mu’s face contemplating face could be seen in the soft glow of the tiny flame. She was biting her lips in consternation.
Suddenly, “I hit you to improve your body’s physical resistance! Defense! Don’t you know? If you get hit a lot, your body will be more resistant to blows—you may not see reason for the things I’ve done now, but at a critical moment in the future, it can and will save your life!”
She exclaimed, nodding her head in surprise at her own wit. Her words are absolute, he won’t be able to find a flaw in it! How hard is it to cheat a 9-year-old kid anyway? It shouldn’t be a problem…
Mo Linyuan wanted to open his mouth to mock the nonsense sprouting of her mouth, but when he saw her expectant eyes looking at him hopefully, it made him swallow those derisive words at the tip of his tongue back down his throat.
“…Really?” He ultimately gave a small smile. At this facetious reply, a trace of absurdity appeared on his thin, pale face.
“Of course!” Ye Mu patted her chest and proudly replied, “You will know what kind of girl I am when you spend time with me all day long! I am really a good person!”
After she had finished her little tirade, she continued to apply the medicine with more vigor and care than before, trying to validate her words and her kindness with her actions.
Her face was cheerful, lips subconsciously stretched to a little smile. As if she was glad that she was able rectify her past actions.
While Ye Mu wasn’t paying attention to him, Mo Linyuan had been observing her profoundly, his stare intensely becoming heavier by the minute.
Actually, today, he had watched three slaves in front of him get tortured to death by that animal Official Liu.
He hated Ye Mu—he hated her to the point his head was filled with murderous thoughts; he wanted to break her body into pieces in the most grotesque way possible.
But when it came his turn and he was seized, unable to break away even if he had been resisting strongly, he had felt desperation hit him. At that moment, he had cast aside all thought, all hatred and swore to himself—
Anyone who comes to rescue him today, he will be forever grateful to that person for a lifetime! But what he didn’t expect was that, she was the one who rushed in to save him.
Mo Linyuan closed his eyes again… Now that her temperament has changed significantly, he’ll act as if he is in the theatre—he’ll observe for the meantime the things she wants to do.
After Ye Mu finished tending his wound with medicine, she found out that Mo Linyuan had fallen asleep. In the dim glow of the oil lamp, his thin face had loosened up slightly, looking innocent.
When she saw that he had fell asleep, her eyebrows instinctively wrinkled.
She didn’t expect this time, in front of the person he considers as an enemy, he could let his guard down and sleep freely. But maybe sleep has caught up to him, and his body couldn’t help but succumb to it when the original Ye Mu did things that prevented him from sleeping in the past. He must be truly exhausted now.
She smiled with relief at this relaxed sight of him and felt that the child was finally warming up to her.
When the time comes that he obtains the map and finds the treasure it holds, that map would already be useless to him. And as long as remains kind to him, if she wants it, maybe he’ll give it to her, right? The first step is to build a good relationship with him! Ye Mu secretly thought in her mind.
Outside, Ye Xiaolang was entertaining his self by counting the stars, hands placed on both sides of his cheeks and eyes full of expectations for the future.
He had been raised by wolves before he was caught as a slave, so he trusts his heightened intuitions the most. Before he was able to meet Ye Mu, he had heard a great deal about her notoriety. However, if it hadn’t been for her today, he wouldn’t have it better than the previous dead slaves.
For which, he had decided to follow her; he firmly believed that his verdict wouldn’t be a wrong one.
After everything was done, it was late at already way into the evening when Ye Mu was able to get back to her bed.
The thrilling day filled with chaos was finally over. Still, she felt as if she were lucid dreaming where everything was suspiciously real.
She looked down at her chubby little hands, and she felt a myriad of emotions. Finally, she clenched her fists, coming to a decision.
In the future, she’ll concentrate on raising him! Impress him until she gains his approval. And then finally get the city boundary map to get back home! It’s that simple! Starting tomorrow, she must make the perfect cultivation plan for him.
Thinking so, she gradually fell asleep.
