Chapter 76 – You Refuse To Obey? (1)
While Official Liu was still hesitating, two men clothed in black entered.
They had been searching for the crown prince in the Yue country for a very long time under the orders of their master. Now that they had finally found him, the expressions behind their masks were that of excitement.
Mo Linyuan knew that they had only come here because of his secret signal, so he waved his hand and told them to retreat for now.
Now was not the time to reminisce about the past.
And when Official Liu saw someone was able to infiltrate his residence without alerting anyone, he knew that they were internal martial arts experts. He immediately became vigilant and could now confirm that this young man in front of him was truly not just a simple person at all!
While he was thinking this, Mo Linyuan smiled and walked over to his side.
“What else is there to consider?”
His narrow and long phoenix eyes were looking at him imperiously as the corners of his mouth raised to a smirk. He slowly said, “In the entire Yue country, do you believe you can have a better backer than me—a crown prince? Rest assured, the humiliation you inflicted upon me on that day has already been erased from my mind, as I tortured you last night. So, do you want to listen to me?”
Official Liu’s entire body shuddered. Facing the youth in front of him, his legs grew weaker and weaker!
That’s true. In the current affairs of the Yue country, did he have any better place to go? If he didn’t agree, he would probably die here! After all, he had no idea how many of his people were here in the Yue country.
If he was targeted by the crown prince, where could he escape to?
Finally, he thought, Rather than being scared of others, why not just give it a try! Perhaps, he still has a great future ahead of him!
Thinking this way, Official Liu fell to his knees, his tone quick to become a tad more respectful. “As long as Your Highness does not abandon me, this lowly one will not refuse!”
When Mo Linyuan heard this, he narrowed his eyes and smiled meaningfully.
“How is it?! Have you gone to save him?”
It was the afternoon of the next day when Ye Mu saw Yan Xu once more. While she was jumping up and down happily, and from mild impatience, Yan Xu immediately covered her mouth, carrying her behind a nearby screen.
“Be quiet, I have something to tell you!”
“What is it?” Ye Mu tilted her head to look at him. Because she was too small, not even as long as his legs, Yan Xu was currently hugging her, as light and soft as hugging a ball of cotton.
His eyes flickered for a moment, and then he said in a serious tone, “The main wife of the Yue Prime Minister, who happens to be Wen Ru’s mother, was furious when she found out that Wen Ru was taken as a prisoner!”
“She personally came here today for her daughter’s sake. In fact, she even wanted to send someone to assassinate you! How about I just secretly escort you to Ye Li’s place right now?” he rambled, proposing his plan.
“Kill me?” Ye Mu didn’t expect the Wen family to move so quickly, but she suddenly thought of something and asked with wide eyes, “Are you delaying your departure to save Aji in order to tell me about this?”
Yan Xu frowned, “It’s already too late! Why are you still thinking about this slave?”
Ye Mu looked at him unhappily.
“Who cares what happen to this slave? Of course, I do! He’s my person!” after taking a deep breath, Ye Mu slowly said, “All right… I’m very grateful that you’ve come to tell me this news. You even wanted to protect me, but I can settle this myself. Compared with my situation, he’s in more danger right now!”
Yan Xu coldly snorted, “He’s just a youth, and he’s even older than you. Do you really think you still need to worry about him?”
Ye Mu pouted angrily and used her little fists to punch him on the shoulder. “My business is none of your business. Do you want to go back on your word?”
When Yan Xu saw how she was always thinking about others than herself, he became infuriated and irritable. He really didn’t want to bother her anymore! However, when he recalled that his men had confirmed the news that the Emperor was indeed very ill, he felt that this person was very useful and wanted to provide for her.
Thus, he swallowed his anger and spoke viciously. “Alright, I’ll go immediately. Don’t you regret it!”
To think that he had come here to help her. Seems like she doesn’t need it!
