Chapter 49 – Counterattack (2)
“I also didn’t expect Ye Tian to have an internal qi expert by his side. However, that person seems to be only employed temporarily…and not an official servant of Ye Tian’s, because I saw him previously protecting Wen Ru.”
He further elaborated, “Wen Ru was very polite to him, holding respect for him as if he was superior in status. But I never thought that after she was locked down, she would order him to protect Ye Tian.”
As Mo Linyuan listened to Ye Mu’s words, a glint of light flashed across his eyes. In other words, Wen Ru at this moment didn’t have an expert guarding her side?
Ye Mu didn’t think too much about Mo Linyuan’s calculating face and told Xiaolang to call the physician once more, and to chase everyone in the room out. Mo Linyuan then carefully rolled up her sleeves and subconsciously held his breath.
“It’s alright…” Ye Mu’s entire body felt very uncomfortable, but she was still comforting him, “Ye Tian’s attack only scratched me.” Seeing Mo Linyuan’s darkening face, she hurriedly said, “I dodged quickly! But he didn’t really hurt me! Ah…but the old wound on my arm seems to have split open…”
Sure enough, after rolling up her sleeves, Ye Mu made a ‘hiss’ sound. Her meaty face instantly turned even paler! After that, blood started to seep out from where the flesh had opened again.
What’s with this bad luck! Why is she always hurt these days?
Mo Linyuan’s pupils constricted. The blood-red area before his eyes was a striking, horrifying contrast against the white and tender skin before him. It glared at him! Even if this place was healed, it would still leave scars. And this scar was caused by him, how could he remain indifferent?
He lowered his head to apply medicine to Ye Mu, but his body was surging with boundless hostility. It was like a black hole, gloomy and dark, filled with the elements of instability.
Even Ye Mu didn’t understand the cause of his blood lust, he was just a child, so what was there to be so mad of? She retracted her hand, “I’m really fine…just do whatever you want. I’m still a child, I’ll grow up quickly—heal quickly… ”
But this time, Mo Linyuan ignored her and firmly grabbed her hand. When Ye Mu saw that Mo Linyuan didn’t say anything, she could only stare at her wound in embarrassment.
“Hiss” She whimpered uncontrollably. Damn, it was really painful! The place that was originally closed, split open once again and became a bloody mess. It hurt so much that she didn’t want it anymore! But when she saw the wound… Ye Mu’s eyes suddenly lit up! She reached out her hand to hold Mo Linyuan’s hand.
“What is it?” Mo Linyuan raised his head to look at her, only to see Ye Mu’s pair of eyes brightening with a mischievous smile.
“Alright, alright. Let’s get ready. I’m going to act!”
Ye Li was in the palace handling matters when he heard the news from his trusted aides. Immediately, the space between his eyebrows tightened!
“What? You said Mu’er’s hand was crippled by Little Tian, and he even almost disfigured that little slave called Aji? How ludicrous, this evil creature! ”
Because he was afraid that his plan would be ruined by Ye Tian, instantly, Ye Li’s heart burned with anxiety. He was unable to continue with the task at hand. He hastily withdrew from the palace and rushed back to the general’s manor.
“Young miss, are you sure?” Ye Xiaolang asked with some unease. At this moment, Ye Mu’s arm had already been wrapped. Upon hearing this, she didn’t even raise her head as she spoke.
“Don’t worry, Ye Li will return!” With her current role regarding Ye Li’s plans, it was impossible for him to ignore her. Even if he did, he would especially not allow Mo Linyuan, who had an important task, to be ‘disfigured’.
Furthermore, her injuries were all from that brother of hers. She purposely bandaged them in the room so that the doctor would not be able to see the extent of the situation and believe that her injuries were not serious.
Sure enough, after Ye Mu said this, he heard Xiaoqiu hastily run in to announce something.
“Miss, the general is here!”
Hearing this, Ye Mu immediately laid down. Even though the wound on her arm was wrapped well, the smell of blood still seeped out. It was impossible to deceive others.
