Chapter 53 – At the Darkest Hour (2)
This kind of indomitable spirit and determination caused even Ye Li, who had a stone heart, to be slightly moved. Everyone knew what consequences were to befall would a handsome young man were to go to the filthy residence of that Official Liu. Not to mention that he had suffered a narrow escape from death from the same man before.
He would have to endure the humiliation that ordinary people could not endure!
However, this little slave was not afraid at all and still acted very eager to offer himself to the misfortune.
“Why?” Ye Li asked, a little confused for his real motivation. He tapped the table with his fingers and said, “This mission is likely very impossible for you to complete. Why do you still…do you really have to put in all your efforts, to go as far to belittling your life, for this?”
If Official Liu was easy to fool, he wouldn’t have been at the bottleneck, unable to obtain the Imperial Guard’s blueprint in a short period of time. Thus, Ye Li felt, for this meager slave, the chances of him succeeding were very small.
Upon hearing his question, Mo Linyuan relaxed his tense body. He thought of something and the corners of his lips curled up. His almond-shaped eyes drooped as he wrote a few words on the paper.
‘If he didn’t, she would die. If she died, he wouldn’t be able to return to her side.’
Ye Li stared at these few words in silence for a long time. He suddenly felt that the death of such a loyal child was absolutely his loss! Especially this child, not only was he bold and meticulous, but he was also quite shrewd.
With these efforts plainly displayed to him, he felt he should also extend a helping hand!
Ye Li pondered for a moment before loudly saying, “Alright! I’ll give you anything you need. You just need to remember your determination to complete your mission and return alive!”
Mo Linyuan sharply raised his head, looking at him fixedly before giving a succinct bow.
On the other side, Ye Mu was still worried about Mo Linyuan.
She knew that there were still some dedicated subordinates of him in the Yue country, but he couldn’t leave the General’s Estate to find them. Moreover, those people wouldn’t find him after being in captive for a long time. Especially since the General’s residence was even stricter than the imperial palace of the Yue country.
Her plan was to give Mo Linyuan vast amount of money to propel the escape plan, but in reality, she held no penny, so what could she do?
Ah…Ye Mu, who always had money to spend and once had no sense of crisis for money, felt a bit listless now. She held onto the pen and felt a headache coming on.
“Young lady?” Ye Xiaolang came in with a delicious snack. Looking at the various medicines littered around and scattered clothes on Ye Mu’s bed, he found it all somewhat strange. “Young lady, what are you doing?”
Ye Mu frowned. “Aji is going far away. I’m going to prepare something for his departure.”
“Aji is leaving?!” Ye Xiaolang was stunned, “Young lady, you….don’t you want him by your side anymore? ”
Ye Mu sighed, “No…in short, this is how the ways of the world change. You shouldn’t’ worry—if you practice martial arts well, you will meet him again in the future!”
Upon hearing this, Ye Xiaolang’s outlook on life received another serious blow!
Why is it always Aji who gets hurt?
“No, I have to go find him!” After declaring so, Ye Xiaolang put down the plate with a solemn expression and ran away from the room. Ye Mu smiled and let him go. She actually didn’t want Ye Xiaolang to bear too much of a burden at such a young age.
However, things often went against one’s wishes.
After Ye Xiaolang ran out, he turned towards the corner and was suddenly pulled by someone! Just as he was about to scream out in alarm, his mouth was blocked. However, he could keenly smell the fragrance of the medicine from his opponent’s body.
This familiar scent only came from one person he knew.
“Aji?” He perplexedly asked, his voice still holding a hint of his disbelief from his earlier conversation with Ye Mu.
Mo Linyuan released him carefully. The moment Ye Xiaolang turned around, he gave him an indecipherable look.
Spending time with him for so long, Ye Xiaolang naturally was able to understand him easily at a glance.
“Aji, you really are leaving.” His green pupils on his dark face stared at him soberly.
Mo Linyuan nodded and then quietly brought him somewhere.
Ye Xiaolang wasn’t able to understand his motives but nonetheless followed him. Finally, they reached a garden situated very close to the main courtyard.
“This place…where are we?”
As soon as Ye Xiaolang spoke, Mo Linyuan covered his mouth. The duo hid behind the fake stone mountain in the garden. With his free hand, Mo Linyuan inconspicuously pointed to a direction.
Siting while casually drinking tea in the pavilion, it was the first wife, Wen Ru, who had just been released from confinement.
