Chapter 67 – Peeping Tom (2)
“So good…” After a long while, Official Liu finally found his voice and carefully stepped into the room. His eyes stared fixedly at the young man, and his lips unconsciously opened and closed in lust, “You, you-I missed you so much!”
“Heh…” When Mo Linyuan heard this, he suddenly revealed a smile. A dazzling smile that made Official Liu’s soul want to jump in excitement.
“Is that so?” He squinted his eyes and smiled, “I also wanted to see you.”
He had nearly been humiliated and killed by this person that day. When he thought about how Ye Mu had also seen his most vulnerable and miserable side, he couldn’t help but think about the person in front of him.
And now, his wish had finally been granted.
“Really?!” Official Liu could not believe his ears. He hurriedly closed the door and instructed the others, “No matter what you hear, you are not allowed to enter!”
After that, he impatiently rushed towards Mo Linyuan. Mo Linyuan held his wine cup and did not move at all. A cold light suddenly appeared within his inky eyes, reflected from the surface of the wine.
The night was going to be very long.
No, no, no! He’s not here!
While others were sleeping, she secretly opened the lapels of their clothes to check. Although it was a bit risky, she, fortunately, wasn’t able to alarm anyone. The only thing that annoyed her was that she had been searching for several hours, looking at countless and different shapes of chests.
But not a single one of them was the person she was looking for!
Ye Mu frowned as she walked towards the house that the last servant lived in. However, at this time, she heard an unusual activity and quickly hid behind a fake stone mountain.
After a while, a man dressed in black from head to toe fell from the roof. He was clearly heavily injured. His heavy footsteps when he almost fell face first to the ground when he landed was proof of this.
Soon, another person could be heard—this person was chasing after him. However, he could no longer run. Suddenly, he saw a miniature rock mountain garden. His eyes lit up and he hid quickly behind the rocks!
Since Ye Mu had been observing the other party, she immediately hid inside the rock mountain when she saw him running towards her. The miniature mountain was quite spacious, with moonlight shining through the cracks, making it a good place for stealth.
The man in black wasn’t able to notice her. After he entered, he didn’t dare move an inch. Very soon, a man in linen robes descended from the roof.
“Strange, he was clearly hit by the Ma Fei San**, but how could have he escaped so fast?”
**An ancient Chinese anesthetic used in surgery capable of inducing numbness/paralysis in muscles.
As he finished speaking, a man holding a large sword suddenly followed after him. It was Ye Li!
“Elder Sun, where’s the assassin?!”
“General!” Elder Sun knelt down on one knee and said, “Although this person’s kung fu is inferior to ours, his qinggong is outstanding. Chasing him down is akin to losing him…”
The black-clothed person within the fake mountain let out a long sigh of relief when he heard this. However, at this moment, Ye Li suddenly roared, “Who is there!?”
The man in black tensed up and was about to rush out when a pair of small hands reached out from behind him and dragged him deeper into the cave.
After waiting for a while, Ye Li did not detect any sound and automatically assumed that no one was really within the vicinity. Meanwhile, within the fake mountain, Ye Mu pressed the stranger to the ground and tightly held onto his mouth with both hands as she focused her attention.
The man who she was sitting atop on didn’t move an inch. The only pair of eyes he revealed were staring at her in astonishment. It was obvious that he knew her!
“Shh…” Ye Mu lowered her voice, “If you don’t move, I won’t move. Shall we temporarily cooperate?”
After a long while, she felt the person under her hand nod his head. Only then did she carefully remove her hand. However, she was still on guard against this guy’s counterattack.
