Heavenly Star – Chapter 250 – Home Again (II)
Ye Wei had experienced this kind of scenarios too many times. In the past year, he had been sent to the military, every time for a short period. As the communication with Big Wind Country had always been so smooth, and sometimes they could get even so smooth that it’s inexplicable. Slowly, he began to realize that this mysterious Evil Sect began to appear a year ago. Sometimes he’d suddenly encounter a large dead army, and the words “Evil Sect” were marked on the ground.
He did not obtain this honor with a peace of mind. Therefore, he would not easily slack off or act arrogantly. Over the years, he began to increasingly admire a young lady who’s at her twenty’s. She had a quick sense in battlefields, and she’d always come up with smart strategies. He always wondered why she could win every time. She’s the daughter of Zhuge Wuyi – Zhuge Xiaoyu.
On the top of the Mengyan Inn, a dark curtain was pulled apart. Afterward, a bright beam of light stayed on Ye Wei’s body for a while. Ye Wei seemed to have realized something. He quickly looked at his side, there was a pair of beautiful eyes on the top floor, and they quickly moved away. Someone gently closed the dark curtain. Ye Wei stopped looking that way, and he sighed. He realized that the only daughter of the Southern Emperor, Shui Mengchan, was living there. After some time, she would enter the Palace and become a concubine. Many people knew about this. Although he hadn’t seen the real person of Shui Mengchan, but from the glance that he just had, he knew for sure that she must be drop-dead gorgeous. Also, she was described to be even more beautiful than his daughter Ye Shuiyao, who was the first beauty in the whole of Tianlong City.
Shui Mengchan walked back to her desk with her elegant steps, and asked lately, “what shall we do with the Ye family?”
The door was pushed open, and her maid, Shui Ling’er walked in with quick steps. She looked like she’s in a hurry. Shui Mengchan asked, “what is it?”
“There’s news from the North! Ye Wuchen suddenly appeared in Changqing City. And he’s walking toward Tianlong City!” Ling’er addressed to Shui Mengchan hurriedly. Her anxiety grew continuously.
“Who?” Shui Mengchan stood up.
“Ye Wuchen! Ye Wei’s son – Ye Wuchen!”
“…it’s not possible, he died three years ago, countless people witnessed. And if he wasn’t dead, why would he wait until today to appear? It must be someone looking similar.” Shui Mengchan spoke gently.
“They also thought so, but the girl next to Ye Wuchen…the one who had white hair and with a scar on her face. It couldn’t be someone else. And it mustn’t be a coincidence. Also, the daughter of Tianfa was beside her too. Aside from the two, there were also two other people. One was Cold Cliff, who disappeared three years ago, and another tall man. From their conversation, we knew that his surname was Chu. He was unknown, and he never appeared. What’s strange is that he was having the sword of God, Cangming on his back.”
Shui Mengchan, “……”
“Princess, then it should be Ye Wuchen. However, from his appearance, we assume that he’s disabled. He must commute in a wheelchair. It’s hard to tell what the actual situation is.” Ling’er continued.
The elegantly-looking room could block noises well. They couldn’t hear the loud noises outside, nor could the people outside listen to people talking inside. After Ling’er finished what she had to say, there were no more sounds in the room. Even the breathing became undetectable.
Shui Mengchan sat down. After a pretty long while, she sighed lightly, “then I think it’s him. It is good news for me, but also a bad one. Before, we used to look down on him. This time, he came back in such an open manner, I don’t think it’s solely for the sake of coming back. It’s a critical moment for us to act, even though he’s disabled, there’s no way I am not worried.”
She met Ye Wuchen briefly twice. After Ye Wuchen “died”, what he’d revealed made her unbelievably scared. She didn’t expect him to come back.
“Where did he appear?”
“I don’t know yet, and I am going to find out. It is certain that he appeared at the north side of Chang’an City, south side of Xiangyun City.” Ling’er replied.
“Then, what about the daughter of Tianfa, when did she leave exactly?” Shui Mengchan asked. Is it possible that Ye Wuchen only gained back his power to come back that day? She didn’t believe so.
“The daughter of Tianfa is powerful. Our guys dare not to monitor her. Even if we get close, we have no way to know where she’s heading to.” Ling’er replied.
“What about Ye Shuiyao, the girl who’s always with the daughter of Tianfa?”
Ling’er shook her head after thinking for a while, “she still rarely goes out. If ever she did, that was a year ago, when she started interfering with Ye Family’s business. She might have foreseen what would happen, and she didn’t want the family business to be taken over by Ye Wuyun. That’s why she started learning herself.”
