 Chapter 824: The Death of Xue Rou'er (5)

Translator: Zen_ Editor: Rock

Xue Rou'er had one of the guard's sleeve clasped in her fingers as she imploringly looked at him.

At that moment, in the eyes of the two guards, Xue Rou'er was like an embodiment of the sun, the burnished ray around her touching and resonating with their souls. So how could they bear to deny her request?

"You must hurry and come back. We'll keep this door locked and pretend you are still inside the woodshed. I will also tell you some of the locations that the patrol passes by. You must remember to go around those places. If Madam learns of this, we will all die!"

Ecstasy rushed into Xue Rou'er's heart, and she hurried said, "Thank you, brothers! I, Xue Rou'er, absolutely won't forgive your kindness."

After saying, she hastily walked out of the shed and surveyed her surroundings. After seeing no one else around, she swiftly walked towards the main court.

...

Inside the room, the scent of incense wafted through the room. Yun Luofeng, who was originally sitting in a meditation posture with her eyes closed, opened her eyes and caught sight of Yun Xiao about to leave the room.

"Yun Xiao, where are you going?"

Yun Xiao halted his steps, his frigid lips slowly turning up in a faint curve. "You ate too little during dinner, perhaps because you didn't like the cooks in the Ye residence, so I wanted to prepare a midnight snack for you."

Back then, after tasting Yun Xiao's cooking at the Liujing Kingdom, when Yun Luofeng returned to the Longyuan Kingdom, she wanted to have Ye Ling transfer the chef from his estate to her estate. It was a surprise when Qingyan told her the one who made those delicious dishes that day was Yun Xiao!

It was only then that she learned of Yun Xiao's culinary talent.

"Alright, I'll wait for you to come back," Yun Luofeng said with a faint smile.

Yun Xiao pushed open the door and walked out.

The night was increasingly silent, but as the night breeze swept over the surroundings, the sound of leaves rustling could still be heard.

At present, Yun Xiao was solely focused on Yun Luofeng's midnight snack, so he did not see the woman stumbling toward him from the front. It was unknown whether the woman did it on purpose, but even though she clearly saw Yun Xiao walking over, she did not dodge and ran into him instead.

When Yun Xiao discovered the woman about to knock into him, she was already in front of her, and it was too late for him to avoid her! Hence, he decisively acted.

"Get lost!"

The man's voice was cold and callous, and his aura erupted from his body, instantly sending the woman's delicate figure flying away and landing on the ground in an extremely battered state.

Xue Rou'er never expected someone as good-looking as Yun Xiao to be so rough! Normally, if a beautiful woman fell in front of a man, shouldn't he catch her? However, not only did he not catch her, he even struck her! It was as though she was some bacteria and he would be tarnished if she tainted him.

Thinking to here, Xue Rou'er climbed up from the ground with tearful eyes and pathetically looked at Yun Xiao. "Young Master Xiao, I'm sorry. I didn't do it on purpose. I simply didn't see you appear just now..."

Her appearance was delicately beautiful, and her expression was soft and gentle. Her tearful appearance made an urge to protect her uncontrollably arise in people's heart.

This type of woman would be desired by many men! However, Yun Xiao was not one of them.

"Young Master Xiao, in truth, I have liked you since I first saw you," Xue Rou'er adoringly said. "I'm different from Yun Luofeng. She must have only gotten close to you because she knew your identity, but my love for you has no ulterior motives! Even if you weren't a member of the Ye Family, I would still deeply love you."
