Chapter 60 – The Male Lead’s Counterattack: The Water Bath (1)
Now that the torch had been removed, Zhao Yu could see the lower half of his body. How could he not understand that he had been tricked? The scariest part was that he didn’t even know who his opponent was and was caught just easily just like that!
No, he could not sit still and wait for death. He had to explain!
Therefore, without waiting for Ye Li to come closer, he rushed forward first and loudly rambled, “General! General, this subordinate is innocent! I am really unaware of what happened! I only know I was wrongly accused! A-and that someone set me up!”
While he was shouting this, Wen Ru was sitting on the carriage, her entire body apprehensive and stiff. She didn’t dare to make the slightest sound or move an inch. She held her breath as she waited for Ye Li’s reply.
Seeing Ye Li silent, Zhao Yu was further thrown into disarray, “General, it’s true! Believe me! Besides, even if I have made a mistake, I am still not one of your people. You should hand me over to—”
But Zhao Yu wasn’t able to finish his sentence. With the whooshing sound of a blade being unsheathed, Zhao Yu’s head was sent flying by Ye Li’s blade!
“AHHHHH!” Many female servants couldn’t help but scream out in alarm and horror as they witnessed the head roll unceremoniously onto the ground. The sharp voices of fear made the hair on everyone’s skin rise on end!
He had killed someone! They all thought. And from the looks of it, his bloodlust was far from over. There was bound to be more bloodshed!
What will he do next!?
When the blood splashed, Ye Mu was very close. Mo Linyuan had been the first to block the droplets that flew towards their direction.
When Ye Mu smelled the scent of blood, her expression immediately changed.
A dead man.
After Ye Li had killed Zhao Yu, he paused for a moment, breathing deeply, before suddenly pointing the bloodstained blade in his hand at Mo Linyuan.
Mo Linyuan turned his head from the side and looked. His handsome, young face was dyed red, making him seem somewhat sinister. However, his expression was still calm. It was as if everything that had happened didn’t faze him one bit.
This made Ye Li even angrier!
“This is what you want to see, right?! Right?!”
On the day he was about to be sent to Official Liu’s residence, this brat had clearly given him such a big gift on purpose! As expected, he should have killed this audacious slave long ago!
When Ye Mu saw Ye Li look at Mo Linyuan with the promise of giving him trouble, she hurriedly wanted to move forward, but Mo Linyuan stopped her.
His gaze slowly shifted from the corpse on the ground to the quiet carriage. Even through the curtain, Wen Ru could feel Mo Linyuan’s probing gaze, causing her entire body to tremble!
There’s still one more.
Mo Linyuan smiled and signaled to the carriage with his eyes. Zhao Yu? He wasn’t the only person he wanted to see die. That was too simple!
Ye Li clearly understood Mo Linyuan’s gaze, and his bloodshot eyes slowly looked towards the carriage. That’s right! He had almost forgotten the main culprit. If it wasn’t for the fact that he didn’t like his wife and hadn’t touched her recently, he would have been part of this scandal as well.
He just didn’t expect that…his wife who is famously known for her demure and gentle nature would actually be different in the inside.
Ye Li laughed coldly as he raised his blade high up in the air. The moment he swung it down, it was accompanied by his inner force. In an instant, the carriage was torn into pieces!
A shrill scream punctuated the air, making the horses raise their front hooves in panic. If it wasn’t held back by the coachman, it might have run out in a frenzy.
Ye Li’s blade cut off the roof of the carriage, the splinters flying off every direction, revealing Wen Ru, who was hugging her head and screaming in an ear-piercing voice!
At this moment, she could no longer maintain any of her former dignity and elegance.
