Chapter 8 – How Do You Give a Good Impression (1)
The tip of the sword pierced the little boy’s neck, but it only penetrated a little before stopping completely.
She had clearly made up her mind, but the moment the blade entered the flesh, she found herself unable to plunge the blade deeper.
As a soldier with a sense of justice, she really couldn’t bring herself to kill an unarmed child. If the other party becomes a tyrant later, only then would be able to say she is killing for the sake of the common people. However, she knows very well that this child will be an everlasting emperor who will unite the land—would the common people even let her do the deed?
Watching the blood flowing down his neck, Ye Mu’s once charming face was now stretched taut, her rising voice was ice-cold.
“What about now? Do you hate me?!”
A mistake. She must not have hesitated. If she wanted to kill him, she should have done it. When one brings the subject of innocence to the table, isn’t she innocent for saving herself after being transmigrated to this place? She didn’t ask for any of this.
With such a thought, her eyes became firm again—even more intense than the murderous look from before. This made everyone who were kneeling on the ground tremble.
Mo Linyuan remained motionless, at the face of death, his heart involuntarily beat faster. It was very clear that the other side wanted to kill him—the killing intent is too strong! But now, she’s hesitating again…maybe with just one word from him, she will make a wholly different decision.
But how could he let himself say he didn’t hate her?
Mo Linyuan mournfully laughed and looked at her, word by word he said, “If you want to kill me…then do it. I have nothing else left to say.”
Merely recalling the hatred for his imperial concubine mother’s death, the hatred for her mother’s exterminated family, his smile became wider by the second.
If he does not die today, he will surely let all those who had bullied him, humiliated him and harmed him pay the price a thousand-fold!
Ye Mu was overwhelmed by this twisted smile, her heart twitched, and the hand on the hilt of the sword, couldn’t bear to hold it anymore.
Only deep animosity against various people could let a 9-year-old child show such a smile.
He refused to break his pride when he was reduced to slavery and when her sword went into the flesh, he didn’t waver. Did she really want to kill such a valiant person?
In an instant, Ye Mu felt that her sword was one thousand pounds heavy and she could not stomach piercing it through with ease.
In the end, they could only hear the clang of metal as the sword fell to the ground. Mo Linyuan covered his bleeding throat, looking at her in surprise.
Then he listened to Ye Mu commanding another unexpected order, “Bring him back and cure him.”
Everyone felt greatly relieved! No dead person means a good thing—no death is good! They hurriedly got up from the ground to follow her order, lest she changed her mind.
Just at that moment, they dare not breathe…The two children were so strong that when they engaged with each other, they seem to be like giants colliding. So, they currently felt the urge to escape.
And among the other little slaves who had been kneeling on one side, a boy suddenly threw himself in front of them!
“Mighty Young lady! Please accept me too. I can do anything! Anything you want me to do!” The boy who said this was dressed in black, with thick eyebrows and big eyes—the two eyes were bright and full of expression.
He saw just recently how Official Liu treated Mo Linyuan, everything was displayed in front of him. There was fear in his heart, so when he was speaking now, his voice was trembling, but he was calmer than before.
The servant and the other slaves could not help but glance at him. Doesn’t the little fellow already know that this household was a wolf’s nest with a tiger’s cave in it? And despite that, he took the initiative to ask the Young lady to accept him?
At the thought of the Young lady’s torturing past times, everyone sighed in their hearts for this slave.
Ye Mu was originally in a depressed mood when she saw the little boy, she couldn’t help but laugh.
She felt that the child was very good. At first glance, it looks the same as the kind of children she is fond of from her original world.
“All right, take him with us!”
The servant girls and all the other subordinates dare not neglect in their actions. The two young slaves were rushed to the courtyard where Ye Mu resided. No matter what the Young lady wants to do with them, they will do it. As long as they do not get included in the ordeal.
