Chapter 61- A Life Time’s Promise
In a room, Mu Yi Xue swept off all of the ceramic tea sets on the table onto the ground before lying on the table, wailing. Her initially tearful looks should have been touching to people, but now that she had a pig’s appearance, it would instead make people shiver violently in disgust.
“Mu Ru Yue! It must be that slut’s doing!”
Who else would do such a thing to her, excluding that slut?
She must definitely return this act back to her!
The Mu residence was different from the noisy Mu family as it was quiet and serene. Mu Ru Yue turned in bed and accidentally touched a peculiar object….
She gradually opened her eyes.
A handsome face, one that could sweep anyone off their feet, was before her. His pure eyes didn’t have any impurities as he smiled at her. They were so close together that Mu Ru Yue could even feel Ye Wu Chen’s breath.
“Ye Wu Chen, why are you in my bed?”
Mu Ru Yue hastily got up, a suspicious blush appearing on her face. She repeatedly told herself that the person before her was just an immature kid, forcing her rapidly beating heart to slowly regain its former tranquility.
“I just wanted to sleep with my wife, so I came.” Ye Wu Chen looked as though he was a chastised kid. He lowered his head, saying, “My wife, please stop being mad at me, alright?” 1
It unknowingly softened Mu Ru Yue’s heart. 2
“Wu Chen, we haven’t married yet, so we shouldn’t sleep on the same bed.”
“In that case, can’t you quickly marry me?” Ye Wu Chen raised his glittery gaze as he looked expectantly at Mu Ru Yue. “My wife, marry me! Then we can sleep together.”
Although it was very easy to give people the wrong thought when one spoke about sleeping together, Mu Ru Yue clearly knew he meant it in the most ordinary way possible.
“Do you really insist on sleeping together?” Mu Ru Yue’s brows raised as she thought Ye Wu Chen was too innocent and pure. He was an immature young man while her hands had been stained with blood in her previous life. This occurrence would definitely be repeated in this life.
Such a perfect man made her unwilling to corrupt him.
“It’s because I wanted to protect my wife.” Ye Wu Chen lowered his head and pursed his elegant lips. “Royal Father and Mother had died that night, leaving me alone forever. I don’t want my wife to leave me behind like they did. I don’t want to be alone again.”
“Wu Chen.” Mu Ru Yue’s gaze gentled as she extended her hand to caress Ye Wu Chen’s hair before tenderly saying, “Don’t worry, I won’t leave you.”
Ye Wu Chen blinked before he raised his head to look at Mu Ru Yue. His exceptional appearance emitted dazzling rays of light, just like his resplendent eyes.
“My wife, I’m not sad. My wet nurse said that Royal Father and Mother were taken by the Gods. Why did they snatch my Royal parents away? Will they snatch away my wife next? But even if the bad Gods come, I won’t let them take my wife away. As my wife, you’re mine.” 3
His voice still sounded innocent, but those words contained a domineering feeling.
Mu Ru Yue sighed. She didn’t know how to reply to him. If it wasn’t for that sudden and unforeseen incident, then according to Ye Wu Chen’s mental age as a child and his great innate talent, he would probably have grown up to be quite the arrogant person.
“Wu Chen.” Mu Ru Yue’s eyes drooped slightly. “Even if the bad Gods come, I won’t go with them. It’s my promise to you, a promise of a lifetime.”
Mu Ru Yue never casually made promises, and if she did make a promise, she would definitely spend the rest of her life protecting it.
