Chapter 817: Will Not Betray
“Girlie, go back with us?” asked Lan Xiao. We can’t stay outside, but we can get Girlie to go with us!
Chu Liuyue was dazed. Go with them to Red Moon Desert? I’m actually rather curious, but Qiang Wanzhou and the rest should still be waiting for me outside… I’ve stayed underground for such a long period of time and don’t know how they’re doing now.
At this point, Rong Xiu suddenly spoke. “When I came, I saw a Dancing Lotus at Mirror Lake.”
Dancing Lotus? Chu Liuyue was extremely surprised. It’s a rare treasure!
Even she couldn’t help but be tempted.
Lan Xiao couldn’t help scolding, “You’re really shameless. You know that Girlie likes these things, so you purposely tempted her!”
Diwu Zhangze shook his head. “Sigh, it’s a pity that no herbs can grow well in Red Moon Desert. It’s fine if she wants other things—we can piece it up for her. But these herbs…”
“Isn’t it the result of your sins earlier on? Don’t you know why Red Moon Desert became like this?” Dugu Mobao coldly glanced at the two of them.
Lan Xiao stroked his chin. “Don’t talk as if it had nothing to do with you. You caused the fiercest commotion back then.”
How dare you have the cheek to talk about us now?
Dugu Mobao was stumped and didn’t say a word.
“Forget it, forget it. Didn’t you see that Girlie’s eyes lit up when she heard about the Dancing Lotus? Let her go!” Diwu Zhangze thought it through. “She can just look for us after she retrieves that thing!”
Dugu Mobao and Lan Xiao thought for a while and felt that this suggestion wasn’t bad, so they agreed. Therefore, without even asking, the few of them directly said, “Then, you can come after you’re done at Mirror Lake! We’re waiting for you!”
Chu Liuyue was speechless. I don’t think… I agreed to go yet… But seeing their looks, it seems like I can’t reject them…
Chu Liuyue nodded in the end.
The few of them then looked satisfied.
Lan Xiao glanced at Rong Xiu and purposefully said, “Girlie, some people look decent, but they’re filled with dirty water! You must be sensible and not be duped by some people!”
Chu Liuyue silently looked down. Is he… talking about Master? Although I do feel that this person isn’t simple, saying it in front of him… I can only say that those with capabilities can have this confidence! If it’s the current me, I really won’t dare to offend any of them. Thus, I would only be able to survive in the gap between the two parties.
When Rong Xiu heard this, he wasn’t angry. These few people have always doted on Yue’er, and their hearts definitely ache after knowing that she has gone through so much. This attitude should be because she’s still present.
But the moment this thought flashed across his mind, Dugu Mobao looked over. “You… Follow us!”
Rong Xiu’s brows jumped. As expected, I can’t think of these people too kindly. How did I forget that they never give me the easy way out…
Chu Liuyue looked at Master and then at Dugu Mobao and the rest before squinting. “You guys… know each other?”
She couldn’t tell at the start, but after these few exchanges, they really didn’t sound like strangers.
The moment she said that, the two parties fell silent.
Nobody denied it.
Chu Liuyue instantly felt incredulous. Since they know each other, why did Big Baby purposely and politely ask Master to take off his mask?
She faintly felt that a secret was hiding behind this.
Upon deeper thought, that sentence should be said for me? Then, it’s because of me that Master refused to take off his mask? A white light flashed across Chu Liuyue’s mind. She suddenly realized something as she looked at Master and stared at him closely. Perhaps… I know the face underneath this mask?!
Chu Liuyue’s heart started beating wildly, and the sense of familiarity became increasingly stronger!
Rong Xiu averted his gaze and followed Dugu Mobao and the rest.
When they brushed past each other, Chu Liuyue suddenly reached out and grabbed at his wrist.
Rong Xiu silently avoided it.
Chu Liuyue looked up and questioned carefully, “Master, what are you afraid of?”
If he’s not guilty or afraid of being recognized, why would he have to hide like this?
The man on the other side didn’t seem to be nervous as he seemingly smiled. “Sorry, my wife is very strict and doesn’t like me touching other girls.”
Chu Liuyue was suddenly dazed—she had never expected the other party to say such a thing. This… This reason seems far-fetched, but it also doesn’t seem wrong…
In her daze, Rong Xiu walked over.
Dugu Mobao’s face turned cold and solemn.
Lan Xiao’s eyes were filled with contempt as he couldn’t help but grunt. Wife? Isn’t it Yue’er girlie?! I haven’t seen him in a few years, but this boy’s acting skills have become increasingly better. When the truth is revealed one day and Yue’er knows his identity, who knows what will happen to him!
Only Diwu Zhangze stuck his thumb up. Now that Girlie can’t remember anything, Rong Xiu actually duped her so openly. He’s really gutsy!
Rong Xiu raised his saber-like eyebrows. “The few of you, let’s go—”
Dugu Mobao glanced at Chu Liuyue standing far away. I’ll deal with this kid after we go out!
“Let’s go!” The moment he said this, the few of them rapidly flew up!
Chu Liuyue looked up. Suddenly, her gaze focused as her heart skipped a beat! I’ve seen Master’s back view! It’s that man at the octagonal pavilion by the cliff!
After Xiahou Tingan heard that Jiang Yuzhi was engaged to Xiahou Yushu, he dragged his injured body to the Xiahou Residence.
But after walking a distance and his anger gradually subsided, he became calmer. It’s broad daylight now, and there are many people on the streets. If I just return to the Xiahou Residence in this manner, I definitely can’t do anything. I might even become the laughingstock of the city once again.
Hence, after much thinking, he still went back.
Luckily, Xiao Die was very obedient and didn’t ask much as she tried her best to take care of him.
After a few days, his injuries were mostly healed, and he decided to take action.
He patiently waited till nightfall. After Xiao Die fell asleep, he silently left the house.
It was already deep into the night, and there was nobody on the streets. Only some mansions were lit up.
Xiahou Tingan went all the way back to the Xiahou Residence’s backdoor.
The backdoor wasn’t guarded so strictly, so he could easily knock the two guards unconscious and secretly barge in.
He was extremely familiar with the Xiahou Residence, so even if it were at night, he knew every nook and cranny very clearly.
In this manner, he smoothly arrived at Xiahou Rong’s study without resistance.
The study was still bright at this point, clearly having someone inside.
Xiahou Tingan held his breath and inched in closer.
The moment he reached the wall, he heard a cold snort from within. “If I knew Jiang Yucheng would be like this, why would I betray the Princess back then?”
