Chapter 37 – How to Get Away (2)
On the other side, Mo Linyuan and his companions were stopped.
“The general is currently attending a banquet for the Zhao Emperor and Official Liu! How impudent of you to rush in! Do you not value your lives!?”
But Ye Xiaolang’s impulsiveness wasn’t to be stopped, grabbing the bodyguard, he urgently said, “The young lady is in danger! The young lady is the general’s daughter; general needs to save her from death!”
The guard merely scoffed at his words and shoved him away. “You’re joking! How could the seventh young miss be in danger at her own residence? If you refuse to leave and make more trouble here, I’ll have no choice but to arrest you!”
Seeing that this person refused to believe them, the three children were anxious. Mo Linyuan knew that Ye Mu holds some importance in Ye Li’s heart, however, he knew it was too little for him to desert a banquet held for the emperor for her. Therefore, he must find a way to force him to leave, but he must see him first!
Just then, Mo Linyuan had an idea and wrote the word ‘Liu’ in the palm of Ye Xiaolang’s hand.
Ye Xiaolang was unable to comprehend the meaning of his actions at first but when he saw Mo Linyuan point to his recently healed shoulder, he immediately understood. That abnormal official Liu was also here, ah!
Don’t tell me, they are going to do that? He morbidly thought.
He looked hesitatingly at Mo Linyuan, but Mo Linyuan only returned a solemn nod.
It had to be done!
So, with the two of them together, they ran towards the slave office. And sure enough, there were people in the midst of selecting slaves to be sent to the main hall. This was a good chance for them to mix in!
Meanwhile, on the other side, Ye Mu made a chaotic scene in the rain and dew garden of Wen Ru.
“Useless wrenches! Even grown adults like you can’t catch a single six-year-old child. Do you want a death sentence!?”
Wen Ru could no longer maintain her gentle mask. She struck the table with force, and all the servants hastily crowded towards Ye Mu in fear.
However, Ye Mu was as slick as a loach, always slipping from their hands. Adding to the hurdle was the garden which was wide and spacious; With this they unable to catch her easily.
Ye Mu was also glad that she has not been lazy during this period and had already recovered a little bit of her old agility back. She lured people around the garden in circles, making them jump up and down through obstacles.
In her mind, she only thought, Ye Li must come quickly!
But in just a flash, a tall man blocked her way! And Ye Mu directly sensed the strong killing intent emanating from this person.
This wasn’t good! To appear before her so fast, this person could only be a practitioner of internal martial arts!
Unfortunately, Ye Mu was short in stature and her frail body inexperienced to fighting. With only two tries of his hand, he was able to grab Ye Mu and lift her up like a young cub.
Ye Mu wanted to fight back the moment she was lifted from the ground, but the other party had anticipated this and mercilessly landed a heavy blow to her stomach. Her whole body immediately shook in pain, and she shrank to a ball.
“Madam, I caught her at last.”
Wen Ru felt embarrassed to have asked a trained person to resolve a small matter. She readjusted her appearance before speaking.
With an apologetic smile, she said, “I’m sorry for inconveniencing Master Yan,” then she turned her head and said crossly, “Why don’t you go over there and arrest the dead girl!”
Ye Mu badly wanted to escape, but the man holding her in a vice grip was too strong. She was shaking in pain as she was easily arrested by Wen Ru.
After handing over the girl to Wen Ru’s servant, the man surnamed Yan left without looking back. Wen Ru had a longing look as she watched the man’s retreating back. Only when he was out of sight did she turn her attention back to Ye Mu. She walked step by step towards her, fronting a commanding air.
Condescendingly looking down, she said, “Little girl, I didn’t expect you’d have good agility even at an age so young. You are actually quite crafty to try and resist your fate.”
Seeing Ye Mu’s forehead covered with thin sweat, she smiled and said, “But you weren’t expecting someone to be here—one versed in internal martial arts, did you? You must know…there are only a handful of people who are knowledgeable in the arts of internal martial arts.” She paused and sneered, “Nevertheless, it’s your fault that you deserve to die. Slight me and I will make you experience a painful death!”
After this grandiose speech, she waved her hand towards the servant with the poison to step forward.
Ye Mu was harshly forced to kneel on the ground. She raised her head in pain to look at Wen Ru, “You’d better kill me directly, else…father sees what you are doing to me—I’ll make you pay!”
“You!” Wen Ru’s frame shook in fury. But this taunt from Ye Mu reminded her that the poison has no antidote and had slow effects. Although she would suffer in agony, with death held at bay, Ye Li might caught her red-handed. It was better to kill her fast, but one that brings ultimate pain!
“Ah…since you have chosen how you want to die; I’ll help fulfill your wish. Call the person in charge for the instruments of torture! This madam is going to have a fulfilling show seeing how you would beg for mercy!”
Ye Mu lowered her head and clenched her teeth. Compared with ingesting unknown poison of which she doesn’t know the antidote, it was better to suffer physical agony.
She will prevail at all costs!
