Male Wife - Chapter 68
“I’m so much younger than him, and also a girl… People will only pity me, and as long as my family is not stupid and put some words out properly, …the family’s reputation will go up. …Grandma won’t need to worry about it day and night….”
“And won’t get sick, …sister-in-law will come back home and brother’s business will be good.. even though there will a moment of sadness… but the future will always be good…. Will always be good.”
Having said that the little girl can no longer hold back and squatted down hugging herself, and burst into crying.
Xie Tingyue couldn’t bare it.
He almost immediately guessed that this little girl had been seriously hurt and this injury was because of He Yuanqi.
Is that why..
The families have deep-seated feud?
What could had happened, making a little girl think and act like this?
What did that beast He Yuanqi do?
This little girl is only twelve years old!
No wonder that night no matter what, Chu Mu never said anything when asked what happened, since this kind of thing was not easy to say.
Xie Tingyue took a long sigh and squatted down, reached his hand and patted the little girl on the back.
But soon realized that his actions may be inappropriate making the girl remember something bad, so he had to take his hand away.
“Do you believe that yourself?”
His voice was light and shallow, like a stream under the moon, not heavy but with power that goes straight to the heart.
“What I think is, a good family needs to be together, even if there are pain and regret, they can still become each other’s support and strength. But if you do this, your family will not be happy, they will remember you all their lives, and blame themselves at the end for not protecting you well.”
Xie Tingyue paused and continued,
“Is this really what you want?”
Qi Yingfie’s cry were not loud, but sadness and despair was evident.
“They are not doing well now after sister in law left. Elder brother also change, he used to like reading the most, he was a gentleman, before going out he always asked permission, and he also always straightened his clothes before sitting down.”
“But now he can’t even make friends with others, he has learned to be cunning and treacherous in business.. he has become a person that I don’t like the most and hated the most…”
Chu Mu turned his wheelchair with his hand and goes through the veranda alone, he observes every corner carefully but found nothing.
After a cup of tea, Qin Ping came back.
“My subordinate are incompetent and let someone slip away, please punish me.”
He knelt on one knee with a deep bow.
Chu Mu lowered his eyes and looked the person on the ground.
“You were found out?”
Qin Ping immediately shook his head.
“That man has good skills. He was very alert all the time when he went into downtown and turns to the alley, the terrain of the last corner was easy to get spotted. Because master has ordered to not chase and get found out, my subordinates did not pursue him longer.”
Chu Mu said.
Qin Ping stood up and extended his hand towards Chu Mu,
“My subordinate found this.”
In his palm there was a bead silver with hollowed hole and carved patterns.
Regardless of the texture or workmanship, it was all ordinary and nothing special.
Qin Ping handed it out hesitantly and felt so useless.
Chu Mu’s eyes suddenly shrank.
He picked up the silver bead with this slender finger and held it up, looking at the pattern through the sunlight.
“What did he check?”
“That man was very concerned about the Lan Yingcao and was very vigilant. My subordinates didn’t feel right so they tried to snatched the bead on his wrist while he was busy and didn’t notice…”
Qin Ping sighed at his wit and own resourcefulness. Fortunately he had done something ahead of time, otherwise in the end not only could he not follow people, but also could not get any clues.
The corner of Chu Mu’s lips suddenly curled up, the side of his face in the shadows was cold and indifferent, all without trace of tenderness.
He recognized the bead and its pattern.
The person who wanted to kill him appeared. It may not be the silver bead this time but it could be a jade pendant or a wait button1 next time.
Soon after the plump banquet at home, there would be such person.
Unfortunately, it was a long time ago that he could no longer remember many things.
But it doesn’t matter, he just need to sit and wait.
“He was alone?”
Qin Ping nodded,
“Yes, my subordinates did not find anyone else.”
Chu Mu slightly frowned.
Some people were always cautious, especially when they want to, was kill someone.
Was he really alone?
“Don’t look back.”
Qin Ping did not understand his masters order not until Chu Mu’s next sentence has come.
“Let’s go and find my wife.”
Qin Ping: …..
After a few steps, he could hear some slight noise. He noticed that something was wrong with the surrounding.
Qin Ping then understood what his master meant, someone came and was monitoring the surrounding.
Their movement must never be found out!
Qin Ping was worried and quickened his pace, he could only expect with the madam’s wisdom and cleverness to be perceptive!
Xie Tingyue was still talking to Qi Yingfei, when suddenly a mellow, collected and quiet voice came sounded behind him.
“Wife what are you doing?”
It may not be the silver bead but a jade pendant or a wait button1– accessories worn by assassins, in which the depending on the accessories worn will know much an expert the assassin is
