Chapter 45 – You Should Return Back (2)
She looked at him and firmly said, “Don’t worry! I’ll come find you in the future!”
This was an era where one’s power was the ultimate deciding factor and one’s life was only inferior to grass. If she were to be left alone, the Yue country would very quickly become a very dangerous place, and the imminent future of the Ye Family facing downfall in the future made things grimmer for her.
It would be better for Mo Linyuan to return to the country of Mo to prevent himself from falling into danger with her, but she would not be able to protect him on this quest.
Most importantly, according to the plot, when Mo Linyuan reached ten years old, he had faked his death to leave the Ye residence and return to his homeland, just in time to avoid the chaos in the Yue country.
He would soon be ten years old, so it was high time for him to go back.
Hearing that Ye Mu said that she would go find him in the future, Mo Linyuan’s cold Qi slightly dissipated…
“What about you? Why won’t you come with me?”
Ye Mu shook her head, “I know so many secrets of Ye Li. If I were to go as well, he would chase after me even until the ends of the earth. You’re different, he thinks you’re disabled and an illiterate. Even if you run away, there won’t be much danger of him chasing you down. And although driven to rage, he won’t punish me because of you…”
Hearing her reasons for refusing to leave, Mo Linyuan only shook his head stubbornly. “Then I’m not leaving either.”
“Why?” Ye Mu raised her head to get a clear look at his face.
He actually didn’t want to seize such a good opportunity to get out. Why? Didn’t he want to go back and settle things in his country? Ye Mu thought.
“If I leave, the trust that you painstakingly built up here at Ye Li’s place will all be destroyed. Moreover, with the fiasco today, the first wife would be eyeing you covetously, with more resentment than before—it will only be very difficult for you after I escape.” He explained.
This was because it was Ye Mu’s suggestion to send him away. Once he ran away, Ye Li would worry about him leaking information and vent his anger on Ye Mu. Although she may feel this isn’t the case, Ye Li already knows he is devoted to Ye Mu; he wouldn’t have been able to escape if she hadn’t guaranteed him his freedom.
Ye Mu, on the other hand, cared less for these things and refuted, “It’s fine, I have a way to protect myself. Moreover, I still have Xiaolang!”
When he heard this, his resolve to no longer leave was strengthened.
“This is your opportunity! Your identity is special, and I can’t let you wander around in danger so casually. If you leave, it will also be much easier for me, so you don’t have to worry about my wellbeing.”
Mo Linyuan pursed his lips.
Ye Mu continued, “Moreover, you are the Crown Prince of the Mo Country, and right now the Empress has taken control of the Mo Country. You must go back and take back everything that belongs to you; your place is not here, not in the Yue country. Truth be told…the Yue country will soon be plunged in chaos.”
Mo Linyuan suddenly smiled. A smile seemed like it was full of self-mockery.
“How can you be so sure that I will definitely return alive? Even on the way towards the Mo country, misfortunes could happen.”
“Nothing will happen!” Ye Mu said confidently, “Because you are Mo Linyuan! You will definitely succeed! ”
Ye Mu’s words, which were filled with sureness, moved Mo Linyuan’s mind. This was because he was Mo Linyuan…so everything would work in his favor? Why had no one ever said such a thing to him before?
His lips tightened to a thin line and he fell silent.
After dusk, there were no lights in the room. Their silhouettes were basked in hazy light—the slight curve of the corner of his eye, as well as his deep gaze, were like a painting, mysterious and fascinating. This scene became deeply imprinted in Ye Mu’s mind.
She suddenly felt her heart beating a little faster, especially when Mo Linyuan did not speak—seriously, what was there to think about? Wasn’t it better to go back?
Just as she was at a loss for what to do due to Mo Linyuan’s stare, he suddenly stretched out his hand and covered her with the thin blanket.
He slowly said, “If that’s what you want, I’ll do it.”
