Chapter 418- Forced Marriage Part 4
‘Can this be counted as a forced marriage, with the person being forced being my husband?’
Mu Ru Yue’s brows rose as she looked at Dong Fei Ran with a fake smile. “City Lord, do you think that I as his wife am a dead person?”
“Hmph!” Dong Fei Ran’s expression darkened. With a cold smile, he replied, “You don’t have a say in this! Do you believe that once I tell him to divorce you, he would divorce you and marry my daughter!?”
This woman dared to insult his precious daughter. How could he stand it? His daughter was a pearl he had nurtured in his hand. When had he ever chided her before? More importantly, she had actually been humiliated and called a courtesan!
“Daddy.” Dong Ling Er excitedly hooked her arm around Dong Fei Ran’s neck as she asked naively and innocently, “You’re saying this elder brother will play with me and make that annoying aunty go away?”
Dong Fei Ran’s gaze softened as he said, “If Ling Er is willing, he can stay here forever to accompany you. Moreover, he will solely play with you.”
“Really?” Dong Ling Er clapped her hands and jumped as she said excitedly, “That will really be too great. Daddy, didn’t you say that elder brother Wu Chen is really powerful? He surely will be able to play fun and interesting games with Ling Er.”
In order to make Dong Ling Er interested in a man she hadn’t met, Dong Fei Ran did his utmost best to praise Ye Wu Chen before they met. Thus, she was greatly interested in him even though it was just their first meeting.
Mu Ru Yue lowered her gaze to look at the tea that Ye Wu Chen tasted. She then commented coldly, “Puppet Poison? The person that can get such a poison mustn’t be a small character. City Lord, if I hadn’t guessed it right, this poison isn’t yours. Was the person that gave you this poison a girl with blue eyes?”
“How did you know that?”
Dong Fei Ran was startled before he immediately realized he had spilled the beans. He then hastily shut his mouth.
“I initially didn’t know her purpose.” Mu Ru Yue slowly shifted her gaze to Dong Fei Ran. “I at least have a gist as to her purpose now.”
“Haha! It won’t hurt to tell you now as it will be useless to you.” Dong Fei Ran burst out laughing. “Lady Lan Yue instructed us to obtain an item from him. As for what thing, hehe~, we aren’t clear about that. As repayment, she will give this man to us. Once the City Lord Manor has him, we won’t fear being annihilated in the future.”
Mu Ru Yue’s gaze shifted to Ye Wu Chen. What did Lan Yue want from him?
“Ye Wu Chen, kill the girl beside you!” Dong Fei Ran sniggered mercilessly. With a ruthless gaze, he continued, “Lady Lan Yue told us that once he personally kills you, he will forget all of his past and become my puppet!”
Everyone looked astonished at Dong Fei Ran.
He was really ruthless. The couple was deeply in love with each other. It would be bad enough to break their relationship, but now he wanted to control Ye Wu Chen to kill his beloved wife. Once he regained control, how much agony would he suffer?
The man raised his hand under the crowd’s gaze. A large purple sword appeared in his hand.
The purple sword was exceptionally noble. It looked incredibly domineering. When the man grasped the handle of the long sword, it made his purple robe flutter without the assistance of the wind. His handsome and charming face was emotionless and even his pair of purple eyes seemed tremendously gloomy.
A sword aura was shot out. However, its target wasn’t Mu Ru Yue, but the roof beam above…
A scream was suddenly heard as the crowd saw a figure in blue robes fall from the roof, landing within the crowd…
