Chapter 82 – Forced to Join the World (1)
“Enough!” Ye Li waved his hand as his forehead began to swell. It was obvious that he was extremely annoyed with this matter!
Ye Mu’s words calmed him down from his previous anger. After pondering for a moment, he knew that Ye Mu was not lying. He, too, had felt this was all part of Wen Ru’s scheme. Now that she was dead, she could preserve her reputation while taking out her revenge.
But Ye Mu…
He stared at the little child in front of him with his bell-like eyes. Wen Ru was determined to be buried with Ye Mu. And with the Wen family here, it was turning into a complicated matter…
“Does the general want to shield this little beast? To harm one’s own mother and offend her superiors…such a disloyal and unfilial child; even if they were to die ten thousand times, it would not be a pity at all!”
The Prime Minister’s wife never thought that the general would shield this concubine-born girl even when her daughter’s corpse was in front of him. Even Ye Li had hesitated repeatedly! Could it be that the precious body of her daughter was inferior to that to a concubine? Thinking of this, her eyes were filled with even more abhorrence. Her high cheekbones and thin lips were tightly pressed together.
Today, she was determined to kill this Ye Mu!
Ye Li really couldn’t bear to part with Ye Mu. After all, this child had given him quite a few surprises, but for her, it was obviously not worth the trouble to start a fight with the Prime Minister’s Estate. Moreover, he had wanted to stabilize his position in the Prime Minister’s side so …
He stared at Ye Mu for a moment, and Ye Mu likewise was looking at him expectantly. She had already explained such an obvious plot so clearly, so it was impossible for Ye Li to not be able to tell the truth from the false.
Even though Ye Mu was thinking this in her heart, she was actually very unsure with Ye Li’s decision. Indeed, with every passing second, Ye Li’s gaze directed at her only became icier.
Ye Mu’s heart slightly trembled, and then she heard Ye Li say, “Mother-in-law is right…”
He turned around, no longer fixing his sight at Ye Mu, “Ye Mu murdered her mother, the evidence…”
“Father!” Ye Mu closed his eyes and suddenly shouted, interrupting his words.
This address made Ye Li feel a deep sense of embarrassment. He had actually never felt this way before, but for some reason, when Ye Mu had called out to him as her ‘father’, he felt his face tighten for the most inexplicable reasons and even felt a burning sensation.
“You…what else do you have to say?”
Ye Li’s voice sounded very weak, as the people of the Wen residence were very domineering as they stared at Ye Mu. Moreover, they were somewhat impatient.
Nevertheless, she was just a concubine, why do they need to listen to what she has to say? They all thought, discontent evident on their faces.
When Ye Mu opened her eyes again, her round, cat-like eyes were completely tranquil. She even smiled, revealing her little canine teeth.
“Father, bend over. I have something to tell you.”
“General! Why do you still have to talk to her? Just take her down immediately!” The Wen matriarch urged from the other side.
Ye Li waved a hand to silence their fretful demands. He hesitated for a moment before bowing down. Finally, he heard Ye Mu whisper…
“Father, if I had a way to kill the Prime Minister, would you still let me die?”
Ye Li was stunned and his entire body turned rigid!
Seeing Ye Li’s expression rapidly change, the Prime Minister’s wife became slightly uneasy. “General, what are you waiting for? It’s just a mere slave born from a concubine. Do you want my Prime Minister’s residence to serve justice ourselves?!”
Ye Li didn’t look at her and was only staring blankly at Ye Mu. He saw the little girl’s pair of clear eyes looking at him with a light that he didn’t understand.
Her only planned had been to follow under Mo Linyuan’s shadow, doing nothing along the way. Now that the time came that Mo Linyuan would help her obtain that elusive city boundary map, her current situation became too pressing to ignore. With the other party insistent of getting rid of her, it caused her to feel a sense of mania. The urge to intervene and end the battle quickly became more intense, thus she had opened her mouth to finally speak in the last minute.
And the moment she said those words, she had now truly ingrained her existence into this world.
