Our Binding Love: My Gentle Tyrant - Chapter 262
Mo Linyuan’s words allowed Ye Mu to finally let her guard down completely. She was truly exhausted. She had blocked her own vital points and tried to restrain herself, but above all, her strong willpower was what played a decisive role in her restraint. In the end, she didn’t let herself go on a massacre. Right then, she lost all her strength and let darkness consume her.
Seeing that Ye Mu was immobile, Mo Linyuan carefully lifted her head to discover that she had just fainted. He couldn’t help but let out the biggest sigh of relief.
Within his bosom was a precious baby who resembled fragile porcelain. She required his utmost care. A baby, who was to be cherished and tended to prudently.
Holding her securely, Mo Linyuan could no longer hold back his rage. He furiously asked, “How could this have happened? Where’s that Silent Master? Find him!”
No one could give him an answer. Wen Feng knelt down and replied, “This subordinate will definitely find him!”
Without looking back, Mo Linyuan softly hugged Ye Mu as he headed down the mountain. He truly couldn’t trust the Silent Monk. He must find someone to replace him.
Right then, Zhao Yiqin had gone through great difficulty to coax the Silent Monk to concede. Zhao Yiqin was confident in her prediction. Sure enough, within the Silent Master’s heart, he still held his mother highly.
But unexpectedly during that moment, her trusted aid rushed in,
“Not good! Empress Dowager, that Ye Mu has been taken away by the emperor!”
“What?!” Zhao Yiqin’s expression changed, “Ye Mu didn’t go on a killing spree? She didn’t kill anyone?!”
“She killed a few, but she only murdered two monks. She had quite a bit of blood on her, but she restrained herself just up to the moment the emperor came. It was unclear what exactly the king did, but Ye Mu has calmed down. They have already left. In addition, there are imperial guards searching for the Silent Master all over the mountain!”
“How is this possible?!” Zhao Yiqin said in disbelief. She had drugged the girl with such a high dosage of fragrance, how could this Ye Mu… how come she didn’t explode? Even if she didn’t kill the emperor, how come she didn’t kill any commoners! If she had killed just enough individuals, Zhao Yiqin would have achieved her goal!
At this time, the Silent Master was sitting down, he suddenly chuckled faintly.
“You see?” His expression held grief and delight, “This is Buddha’s retribution. The star which is the emperor is protected by destiny. He will not get into trouble, much less the people he values.”
“Bah! How is that Mo Linyuan worthy of being king?! He and Wen Ze are both wicked delinquents! He is not qualified to rule!”
Zhao Yiqin urgently marched around like an anxious ant. She muttered again and again, “Not good. All my hard work cannot be ruined like this! She didn’t kill anyone? Then let me do it! When the time comes, it will look like she was the murderer! Besides, quite a few people witnessed Ye Mu’s insanity today. This could be a good loophole to manipulate!”
Regardless, she just can’t let Mo Linyuan get out of this unscathed. If she came out empty handed, it would mean the death of her!
“How can you still be this persistent?” The Silent Monk smiled bitterly, “You are not his opponent. Twice already, you have used Ye Mu… but we still failed in the end. Do you know what this means?”
He paused and then exclaimed, “This means, Ye Mu… is the guardian of the emperor’s star!”
Zhao Yiqin’s complexion turned completely dark, “So what if you’re right?”
She clenched her fists, “Do you have any idea how much I’ve sacrificed to get to where I am now? It’s impossible for me to just admit defeat! Even in death I will not give up!”
