Chapter 6 – Do I have To Kill Him (1)
This man Ye Li is as tall as a big black bear. Eyes bloodshot, he stares at people with a bloodthirsty look. At a glance, such a person would immediately give people the idea he has killed numerous people—not the kind who fights for the country or common people, but rather, a plain murderer. Just now, she almost couldn’t help instinctively fighting back.
She was, fortunately, able to hold herself back. After all, she was not a match for him with her small size.
Ever since she came in, she had been wondering what she could do to get out of the foreseen danger. The fact from the novel suddenly came to her mind, that the Emperor of the great Yue country was dying of illness. There were absolute signs of illness at the beginning, only, it was well concealed therefore people were unknowledgeable of it. So, she made a gamble and dared to declare this piece of information.
If her hunch was right, everything will be fine afterward. However, if her memory was actually wrong, then she won’t be able to escape. To get through the present situation first and escape unscathed was her first priority.
“Young…Young lady…I’ve been following you…There was—I’ve never seen anyone in black…”
Xiaoqiu whispered nervously in Ye Mu’s ear. She was her personal servant girl, the person who waits on her most of the time. She was still scared out of her wits just a while ago, as to why she wouldn’t dare expose Ye Mu’s lie on the spot. Ye Mu swept her a glimpse telling her to keep her mouth shut.
“I said there was—you didn’t see it, but if you dare to talk nonsense, I will definitely cut your tongue!”
She deliberately shouted this forcefully, and sure enough, Xiaoqiu meekly bowed her head as soon as she finished, not daring to say a word.
Ye Mu took a deep breath and walked towards the slaves on the corner.
The butler and all the other people of the residence were at a distance keeping themselves away, as they saw Ye Mu steadily approach the little slaves. Ye Li had a vicious temperament, therefore, when the concubines of his harem gave birth, they raise up their children to be especially cruel in order to please and gain Ye Li’s favor. And so, Ye Mu, who was known to be the most brutal among them, was particularly favored by Ye Li.
However, for her to continue being favored, such a provocation to his authority like today won’t be tolerated a second time. If it weren’t for the important news provided by Ye Mu, she would have been really thrown out like a rag doll!
But this does not mean that Ye Mu is weak. On the contrary, the other person everyone is most afraid of in this house besides Ye Li, is this little girl. Even at an early age, she already knew many ways to harm people. For servants like them, it was better to see her far away.
As for those little slaves—they can only ask the heavens now for a stroke of luck!
After witnessing a disturbing scene, several of the little slaves began to cry in a subdued voice.
Ye Mu walked over and looked at the youth who was almost molested by Official Liu just now. She found that he was thin and bony; he did not have meat on the places a healthy child should have.
The boy, knowing that he had been saved in time, sat on the ground with the little strength he had left. When she was gazing at him, he had also looked back at her in alert. Just like how the book specified, there was indeed a tear mole in the corner of his eye. With a graceful posture, his eyes became particularly vivid and sharp.
Thinking how the present expression nailed the descriptions in the book, plus this bright tear mole, he is truly the male protagonist without a doubt.
Ye Mu’s eyes held a complex look in them. Everything in front of her was the same as was stated in the book. If the plot followed faithfully to every word, then she would face another dilemma in the future. It would be too difficult!
At first, she wanted to kill him because she thought it would be the fastest way for her to go home. She had also considered the worst possible probability that she wouldn’t be able to go back if she killed him.
Another thought was that if she wouldn’t be able to kill him. The male protagonist will become the emperor in the future. Moreover, it is the emperor who can unite the lands and become emperor for all eternity! His hatred for the original host is deep and would not lessen one bit as time passes.
Sometime in the future when the male protagonist gains power, he would absolutely not let this person slip away!
