Chapter 22 – Unexpected Hidden Treasures (1)
Ye Mu let off steam and cried for a while beside a flustered Mo Linyuan. It was only when the pain reached a tolerable level that she stopped crying.
Did the male lead’s bad luck rub off on her? She should have stayed inside her room, ah!
It was a different story altogether for the teenager holding her.
Her soft, small body mildly smelled of milk…before then, he didn’t want to spare her a glance, but this time, her rich and vivid expressions would make any other people to stop and stare, to hold her in their arms and take care of her.
Just then, when they were both in danger, she chose to protect him rather than herself. If she hadn’t protected his head, it would have been his face that met the ground.
“I’m alright now…stop hugging me. It doesn’t hurt anymore.”
After thinking she had sobbed enough, Ye Mu pulled herself together and wriggled out from Mo Linyuan’s chest. Suddenly losing the little dumpling from his arms, Mo Linyuan felt slightly strange.
Ye Mu looked around. The surrounding area was dark, making her think she fell into a cellar. But they had to get back up. Because the male lead found the secret book of lost martial arts in the yard, it wasn’t stated that he had fell from finding it.
Meanwhile, Mo Linyuan also got up. While he too was observing, he stepped on something solid and bent down to pick it up, examining it up close.
What was a book doing here? Was this what Ye Mu had been looking for?
“Young lady, were you looking for this?”
Ye Mu turned to see the book in his hands illuminated under the faint moonlight. Her eyes immediately widened, and she couldn’t help but utter, “Where did you find it?!”
Mo Linyuan looked up from the book and casually said, “It seems that it fell down with us.”
The pages of this book were not made from ordinary paper. Running one’s fingers across it gives the sensation of touching cortex**. At first sight, it could already be considered as an artifact.
**T/N: Cortex (archaeology) – In lithic analysis in archaeology the cortex is the outer layer of rock formed on the exterior of raw materials by chemical and mechanical weathering processes.
Ye Mu was all over the moon, she ran towards him carelessly and immediately stumbled a second time.
She tripped once again! What is it with her new set of arms and legs!? At the very least, her earlier fall was worse compared to this!
Mo Linyuan was shocked and instinctively rushed over. And before Ye Mu could cry, something caught her attention that held the tears at bay.
With only the faint moonlight serving as light, she was only able to discern a heap of small, round things beneath her. But upon closer inspection, they glistened gold when hit by the light.
Gold…Isn’t this gold?!
“Are you all right?!”
Mo Linyuan hurriedly lifted her up and was worried that she would start crying again. However, he was more taken aback when Ye Mu suddenly laughed. Before he could ask her what was the matter, Ye Mu had already shoved a handful of coins towards him.
“Look! Look! This is gold, right?!”
Mo Linyuan heard these ridiculous words and automatically looked down. Despite the low lighting, he was able to distinguish his surroundings well because he had good night vision.
Not only in Ye Mu’s hands were there gold—it was literally everywhere on the ground!
As soon as he looked up back again, he took out the wooden lighter from Ye Mu’s waistband.
The fire crackled as it was lit up, instantly illuminating this small space!
It only lasted a while before it became extinguished. But within those few seconds, they had already seen enough.
Gold, piles of it surrounded them.
In addition, there were weapons and armors mixed with the sparkly coins. When the fire had gone out, Mo Linyuan went towards a certain direction and pulled out a knife from the treasure there.
That’s when he knew everything they had seen just now was real!
There’s no other explanation for this hidden treasure—this could only be the treasures left by the ancestors of the Ye family!
Ye Mu was even beyond delighted, and she stood up to bounce up and down, a silly smile on her face. The book never said anything about these hidden treasures in the Ye residence.
And looking at the numerous equipment with indisputable quality, Ye Mu felt that the original Ye master apparently had a selfish, devious heart to keep these treasures from the next generation!
But sorry, it’s now all hers!
“Hahahaha! This…it’s raining gold!”
She pounced on it with a pent-up squeal, holding the pile of gold before tossing it overhead and laughing,
With this, she can do a lot of things!
