Moonlight shone down upon the silver robe of the man. Beneath the moonlight, he seemed so noble that a person was unable to look him in the eyes. It was as if he were genuine royalty.
Mu Ru Yue’s heart suddenly palpitated. There was a familiar aura coming from this man.
The way he looked at her sent a piercing pain through her heart for some reason…
The man gave her another look before turning around, disappearing from under the moonlight.
Even though he had left, there was still the warmth left by that man in her room…
“Who exactly are you?”
Why did she feel such familiarity…
Yet, the feeling he gave her was different than the one from Wu Chen. Wu Chen brought warmth with his charm, and she’d felt safe when he was by her side. But this man gave her a dangerous vibe.
Her fingers rubbed at her lips where she could still feel the imprint of that man lingering.
Perhaps she would discover this man’s identity soon.
The next day, within the Xiao family.
A person whom Mu Ru Yue wouldn’t have expected arrived.
The instant that she saw that man, she became excited and hurriedly went to greet him. A magnificent smile appeared on her exceptional face. “Wu Chen, why are you here?”
She hadn’t expected him. When Qing Qing had told her that a man had come looking for her, that man had actually been Ye Wu Chen, whom she hadn’t seen for ages.
The man gradually turned around and a gentle smile appeared on his handsome face. When his black eyes landed on the young girl’s body, he said gently, “I had heard that you came to the Xiao family, so I’ve come to see you.”
Mu Ru Yue looked at him in astonishment and frowned slightly. She didn’t know what exactly felt a little off, but it almost felt as though something wasn’t quite right with the current Ye Wu Chen.
“What’s wrong, Mu Er?” Ye Wu Chen walked a couple of steps toward the young girl. With a charming smile, he continued, “It has been a long time since we last met. Have you become distant with your husband?”
Mu Ru Yue slowly came back to her senses as she shook her head and smiled bitterly. Perhaps she was being a little too sensitive…
“Wu Chen, it’s great that you’re back. When shall we prepare the wedding ceremony?”
“No need to hurry that.” Ye Wu Chen chuckled. A peculiar ray of light flashed past his black eyes. It was a pity that the light faded too quickly that Mu Ru Yue wasn’t able to catch it. “Mu Er, it has been so long. Your husband really missed you…”
He took a step closer to Mu Ru Yue as he said that.
The smile on Mu Ru Yue’s face slowly faded as she looked with suspicion at the man before her. “Wu Chen, what happened to you? I feel that something isn’t right with you.”
Whenever she had seen Wu Chen in the past, she’d felt safe. Yet, why was it that, standing next to him now, she didn’t have that feeling of safety?
Ye Wu Chen raised his hand, but then gradually placed it down before it neared the young girl’s face. With a charming smile, his divine-like appearance looked truly amazing.
It was already too captivating with just that smile.
“Mu Er, let’s go out for a walk.”
Mu Ru Yue nodded her head slightly. “Alright.”
At this moment, a silver-robed man not far from the border seemed to feel something. He slowly turned around and cast a gaze toward the Xiao family. He frowned slightly, an unfathomable emotion within his purple eyes.
“This feeling…” The man’s brows creased deeper. The uneasy feeling made his heart hurt. It was just like that time…
Could it be that something had happened to her?
“I hope nothing bad happens to her…”
