Chapter 534-Chasing After Your Steps Part 3
A man stood beside the bed late into the night, his hand lightly touching Mu Ru Yue’s brows. Following that, he slowly slid his finger down to her lips…
Her lips was soft, but cold. It gave people a feeling of wanting to give them a taste.
Of course, he didn’t only think about it and actually did it.
The man lowered his head and planted a kiss on Mu Ru Yue’s thin lips, gently savouring it. Even so, his actions were gentle, as if he feared he might wake her up…
The girl on the bed frowned, as though uneasy about something, and then turned her body to face the man. Her tightly knitted brows relaxed very slowly.
“Mu Er, I’m sorry. I must leave.”
She would only be safe if he left since the Immortal Doctor Sect was targeting him. Although he knew this, he was still greatly reluctant to leave his girl…
Moonlight shone into the room, lighting upon the man’s slender body.
His gaze was incredibly focused, as though he wanted to take this moment to engrave every single detail of the girl into his memory…
No one knew how long it would take until the two of them reunited once more after this departure.
“Mu Er, I will wait for you to become stronger. When we reunite again, perhaps you will have a stronger cultivation then. We won’t ever be separated again then.”
It was only with tyrannical strength that they could stay together forever.
Ye Wu Chen didn’t waste anymore of his time and only gave a final glance at the girl lying on the bed before turning to leave, the boundless night sky his only companion…
He left, but he didn’t tell her.
It was due to Ye Wu Chen knowing Mu Ru Yue too well. If she knew the reason why he left, she definitely wouldn’t allow it.
“Eldest brother! Eldest brother!”
An anxious voice washed over the entire Pill Tower.
Xiao Feng, who had been instructing something, suddenly heard Mu Ru Yue’s voice. He turned his head and walked briskly toward her. With a slight crease of his sword-like brows, he asked, “Sister, what’s wrong?”
Mu Ru Yue was holding a letter in her hand at this moment. With worry expressed in her eyes, she ignored his question and instead asked, “Eldest brother, have you seen Wu Chen?”
“Wu Chen?” Xiao Feng frowned and shook his head before saying, “Did something happened to Ye Wu Chen?”
Mu Ru Yue’s fingers trembled as she lowered her gaze to cover up the bitterness in her eyes. She muttered, “Wu Chen left…”
“Mhm.” Mu Ru Yue nodded as she explained, “He said he left due to not wanting to implicate the Xiao family and I further…”
Xiao Feng was startled. Yao Yun Qing and him weren’t here yesterday, but he had heard a report about what happened to the Xiao family when he returned.
He just didn’t expect Ye Wu Chen would leave due to it…
“Yue Er.” Xiao Feng’s throat was choked with emotion. He didn’t know how to console her at this moment.
“Eldest brother, I’m alright.” Mu Ru Yue slowly lifted her gaze and with determination in her eyes, continued, “I believe I will reunite with him sooner or later…”
Xiao Feng patted Mu Ru Yue’s shoulder. His heart truly did hurt for his sister. She had just gotten together with her beloved man after such difficulty, but so many commotions continued to arise between them…
“Eldest brother, I will first start to prepare for the Immortal Doctor Banquet.”
Mu Ru Yue smiled and didn’t say anything further as she turned around and walked out of the Pill Tower, slowly vanishing from his gaze…
Xiao Feng felt as though something was stuck in his throat as he wasn’t able to make any reply. This woman was so strong when facing situations. He greatly wanted her to just hug him and cry it out to relieve her stress.
But she didn’t…
Ye Wu Chen’s departure didn’t seem to have affected Mu Ru Yue greatly. She just cultivated daily as per usual. But only she knew that the reason she was cultivating with all her might was actually to chase after his steps.
