Chapter 57 – An Unexpected Turn of Events (2)
The general would leave through the backdoor in the palanquin—this was Mo Linyuan’s opportunity to escape. Ye Mu reminded him once more about this.
“After you leave, go straight towards the Mo Country; don’t take detours. And when you get back to your country, you must study hard and not slack off, especially with regards to the Supreme Heart Sutra.”
Ye Mu was currently wearing a peach-colored skirt, her hair tied into a double bun. Her height was short, and her flesh was white and tender; she looked just like a kid from a new year’s painting.
At this moment, she was observing the surroundings while sternly warning Mo Linyuan like a little old woman. Her nagging attitude made Mo Linyuan, who was originally a little depressed, suddenly life the corners of his mouth in a slight smile.
He held back—he didn’t want to do anything in front of all these people. Because truthfully, he really wanted to touch the buns on her head.
Towards the other side, the steward said that the general was about to leave.
This means that Mo Linyuan has to leave as well! Ye Mu panicked. She took advantage of the moment while no one was looking and stuffed a small pouch into Mo Linyuan’s hands.
“Take this. Don’t worry, in less than two years, I will definitely come and find you.”
Mo Linyuan could tell with a pinch that it was shaped akin to a jewelry. He really didn’t know whether to laugh or cry.
Does the girl want to give him her entire fortune? Why is this girl so stupid?
He naturally couldn’t receive it, so with a flip of his hand, he pushed the item back. Without waiting for Ye Mu to say anything, he suddenly turned around and walked towards where Ye Li was!
Ye Mu was stunned by his actions. She was immediately alarmed when she discovered that Mo Linyuan was walking towards Ye Li.
Wait, what are you trying to do?! She thought frantically.
Ye Li was preparing to board the carriage, but Mo Linyuan’s actions were too obvious, causing everyone to look over, including the preoccupied Ye Li.
When Ye Li was halfway into the car, he withdrew his leg and looked at Ye Mu in bewilderment. Ye Mu, on the other hand, jumped in fright. She quickly followed Mo Linyuan.
“What’s the matter?”
Under the clear sky, Ye Li was wearing a dark brocade robe as he stared at Mo Lin Yuan in displeasure.
Inside the carriage, Wen Ru, who was the first to board, lifted the curtain and looked at Mo Linyuan with an unfriendly gaze.
She knew this kid; he was the one that had always been by Ye Mu’s side.
Mo Linyuan swept a fleeting glance at Wen Ru before his gaze landed on Zhao Yu’s figure inside the carriage. As expected, he was here. After all Wen Ru was about to go outside the residence. As someone in charge of protecting her, how could he not follow?
Mo Linyuan lowered his head and walked forward step by step. The steward wanted to stop him, but he was held back by Ye Li, allowing Mo Linyuan to come closer. Afterwards, Mo Linyuan blatantly handed a piece of paper with a written message unbeknownst to onlookers to Ye Li.
Ye Li frowned and curiously received it. He opened the folded parchment and took a look.
His attitude was originally laidback, but the more he looked at the paper in his hands, the more befuddled he became! His thick eyebrows were frowning, and the veins on his forehead were bulging, as if there was a thunderstorm brewing inside it!
As Ye Mu walked over, she nervously tugged at Mo Linyuan’s clothes, keeping her voice extremely low.
“What’s the matter with you? I told him you were illiterate! Aren’t you exposing yourself?”
Mo Linyuan turned his body and glanced at her. As a mute, he didn’t speak but only used his eyes to comfort her. But at this time, how could Ye Mu be appeased by him? They were about to send him off, but at the critical moment, he suddenly made such a ruckus.
Wasn’t this creating a huge problem?!
Just when Ye Mu was feeling uneasy, Ye Li suddenly let out a furious roar and crushed the slip of paper into a ball! Everyone’s heart skipped a beat and they all lowered their heads in fear.
