Chapter 44 – You Should Return Back (1)
But to send someone else to be a spy in a stranger’s house, and even more so…a loyal, little slave who isn’t afraid of death?
Ye Li thought for a moment before suddenly laughing loudly, “Alright! You are truly worthy of being your father’s daughter! You really take good care of Father! Rest assured, since Madam has injured you, Father will definitely stand up and seek justice for you! ”
Ye Mu didn’t speak, her eyes glued on the sheets. Only after did she brought up the topic about the treasures did Ye Li remember that he should stand up for her. This…she was at a lost on what to say.
However, ye Li was only oblivious to her thoughts, he only felt that the more he looked at them, the lighter his mood became. He stared at Mo Linyuan and asked, “But this kid is very smart…do you think he would listen to your words? Lest, follow it? After all, Official Liu’s residence isn’t not a good place for a slave. Especially for him. ”
What if this fellow was unwilling to go and had some hidden intentions along the way? Ye Li stroked his beard and felt a little hesitant.
Mo Linyuan did not express anything for Ye Li’s lack of trust towards him, his eyes were only looking at Ye Mu, awaiting her next words.
Ye Mu said confidently, “You saw it too. He was extremely devoted to me and was not even afraid of death. So, I can guarantee with my life that he will be trusted! Even if we were to release him from the residence, there would not be any problems!”
Ye Li only relaxed after hearing Ye Mu’s words. That’s right, he remembered that this kid blatantly dared to threaten him just for Ye Mu. A scheming child—it was obvious that he would be able to get out alive! He really was a good choice as her daughter’s dead man!
“All right! Father will go and reject him right away. Mu’er, have a good rest first. There are still some important guests in the main hall. Father will be departing first.”
Before he could leave, Ye Mu decided to amplify his guilt towards her. Therefore, with a slight downward tilt of her head, she whispered, “Father…you must come and visit Mu’er often…”
When Ye Li heard her voice, weak and small, his heart suddenly clenched. At the same time, his hatred for Wen Ru rose even more. He decided that he would definitely teach her a good lesson later.
“Don’t worry. With father here, no one will ever dare to hurt you again in this general’s estate!”
When Ye Mu finally said this, she let out a long sigh of relief. “Thank you, father.”
After that, she watched Ye Li leave.
After Ye Li left, the servant girl also went inside bringing in the medicine. Ye Mu would have argued that it was just a superficial wound and that drinking the medicine wouldn’t have much of an effect, but she refrained from saying anything. She just drank all of the tonic in one gulp.
It was actually to appease a worried Mo Linyuan sitting beside her bed.
“Does it still hurt?” Mo Linyuan asked softly. Ye Li had already used the exclusive wound medicine bestowed by the palace to treat her, but with how severe her injuries were, Mo Linyuan felt no matter how good the medicine was, it would be impossible for her to get well right away.
“Much better…” She answered consolingly. If she wasn’t feeling better, she wouldn’t have woken up so quickly and coincidentally hear the conversation between him and Ye Li.
“When I said I wanted to send you to Official Liu’s residence, why didn’t utter a complaint?” Ye Mu glanced at him, puzzled.
He poured her a glass of water, basking the room in silence and let her wash away the taste of bitterness from the medicine in her mouth.
“Why should I?” His eyes were still, his raised phoenix eyes calm. “I know you won’t harm me, that’s already enough.”
With this offhanded reply, Ye Mu’s expression became difficult, “I won’t be able to do much about this. The Ye residence is heavily guarded, although easy to enter, it’s hard to leave it—let alone for a powerless person like me. Even the main wife who governs the harem can’t easily step foot outside.” She paused and exhaled, “That’s why, I wanted to use this opportunity to let you escape. Leave the Yue country and return to your own country!”
Mo Linyuan was beyond stunned. The smile on his face was completely wiped away, and his voice trembled slightly. “Why do you want me to leave?”
Ye Mu laid on her stomach as she spoke in a vexed tone.
“What…there’s no definite reason why…I only feel that it’s too dangerous for you, as the crown prince of another country, to stay in this treacherous residence. Especially that I’m not able to protect you—I’m only still young! So, when you familiarize all of the Supreme Heart Sutras to mind, you must leave immediately.”
