Chapter 162 – Children at the Temple (2)
“Mmm.” The silent master hurried away, and after thinking for a moment, Ye Mu followed him.
Currently, the Buddhist temple filled to the brim with people. One of them was a young woman kneeling on the ground with a child in her womb, about seven or eight months pregnant.
In her case, she should have been moved to the inner rooms immediately, but a group of people stopped at the entrance of the Buddhist temple, blocking the monks. After a basin of water poured down her body, the pregnant woman woke up and saw the leading lady sneer.
“Well, I finally found you! And look, your belly is already swelling. It seems that it will take some work to kill him.”
The pilgrim next to her could not look down, holding the beads saying, “Amitabha, no matter what the grudge is, it should not harm the children. You have committed iniquity!”
“Bah!” The rioting woman stood in front of the slave and cocked her head. “She was our concubine who ran away secretly and got pregnant with another man. This seed is evil and filthy and should not stay!”
After she said this, there was a moment of silence.
Many women came here to offer incense, but often, the more women there were, the more upright they were among other women.
When they heard that the pregnant woman was a concubine, they looked a little disdainful. So, they only watched her being dragged away by the noblewoman, and all the people around her gradually turned away.
Sweat poured off at the pregnant woman’s forehead, and abdominal pain made her speechless. She could only look at the people around her with eager eyes, but no one dared to help her.
“Stop!” A voice interrupted and sounds of footsteps approached the scene.
All the pilgrims around respected him, and made way for him to enter the Buddhist temple.
“Silent Buddist Master?”
“The master is here…” audible whispers circulated the place.
Looking at the place full of people, he frowned and asked, “Who is making trouble here?”
Knowing the silent master’s excellent reputation, the rioting lady frowned impatiently at the unexpected disturbance, “Master, I don’t want any trouble. I just wanted to catch this runaway concubine back.”
The silent master looked at the pale-faced woman who was in pain and muttered, “But she’s about to give birth.”
“Birth?” The lady furiously responded, “She eloped with someone and is pregnant with an adulterer’s child. This child must not be born!” and added.
The pregnant woman grimaced, enduring the pain of an incoming birth while facing the crisis of life-and-death of both her and her child’s life. But then, the amniotic sac in her womb burst! She struggled in pain and cried out to the people around. She couldn’t even say a word and can only groan in utter distress.
Because of a taboo, the monks took a step back and said, “This temple is sacred. We can’t let this woman give birth here.”
The lady exclaimed, “Master! I shall take away this woman now. Otherwise, she will have defiled the holy temple of the Buddhist monks!”
The silent master who has always been kind to others turned stubborn and refused to let go. “Her sac has erupted. If she doesn’t go to labor now, the child will die…”
“He should not exist in this world!” There was a flash of cold light in the lady’s eyes, “And even if the master is knowledgeable and highly respected, you can’t intervene in everything! This concubine is property of another house! Please get out of the way!”
