Chapter 364: Flaw exposed!
He was not afraid of a God-like assassin, but a pig-like roommate.
If possible, Li Muyang really wanted to tie up Cui Meng this idiot and throw him down the 999 steps of the White cloud stairs——
What you should say you said, what you should not say you still said irresponsibly, do you know what is friendship and righteousness?
Li Muyang secretly decided to cancel his invitation to Cui Meng to drink wine together.
After hearing from Cui Meng, all eyes shifted to Li Muyang’s face.
It was as though there were countless Buddha lights, forming a circle around and shining at him.
There was envy, jealousy, and vigilance.
Also some were furtively twitching their blades, if Li Muyang really was suspicious, they felt they must capture and interrogate him first——Whether you are her saviour or not, you still have to explain your reason of hiding under the hot spring where Miss was bathing.
Did you already know that an assassin was going to attack beforehand?
If you did, how do you know?
If you didn't know, what is your motive of hiding under there?
Cui Xiaoxin scrunched her eyebrows together, her eyes sweeping up and down Li Muyang’s face, and then firmly stared at Cui Meng and said aloud: "You said he went out to find a place to bathe?"
"Yes." Cui Meng nodded repeatedly. As long as it had nothing to do with him, it did not matter much to him whether or not other people were involved. He is only a little insignificant person, and the most important thing for a little insignificant person was to survive. Moreover, he did not lie, he had only truthfully told the Young miss the situation. "I persuaded him again and again. I said it's freezing, where will you find the place to bathe? We only wash once every month in winter, there is no need to wash everyday."
"When did he come back, do you know?" Cui Xiaoxin asked, looking at Cui Meng.
"I don’t know." Cui Meng shook his head. "It was too cold outside, and I was exhausted from today, so I feel asleep as soon as I lied on the bed."
Cui Xiaoxin’s gaze shifted to Li Muyang once again. "You went out to bathe?"
"I did want to go take a bath." Li Muyang said with a wry smile. "I circled round and found you a spring in the eastern corner of veranda. I touched it and was almost frozen by the coldness of the water. Not only was it cold, but it was surrounded by ice——It was too cold, I fear I will catch a cold so I came back. When I came back, Brother Cui Meng was asleep. I heard him snoring, so I didn’t wake him up and I slept in the bed beside him."
Cui Xiaxoin had seen the spring that Li Muyang mentioned, she knew what he said was not a lie, the spring water flowing down from the mountains was most likely going to freeze at this time of the year.
Taohong walked over to Li Muyang, sniffing around him, and almost fainted: "Miss, he smells very bad."
"Is there any smell of sulfur?"
"I can’t smell it."
Li Muyang was still wearing the blue robe that he wore during the day and it looked that he has not changed his clothes.
Of course, when they left the hot spring, the set of clothes that Liulu found under the rock had disappeared. The saviour had taken away his clothes when he left and lost them a good piece of evidence.
Liulu was examining the colour of Li Muyang’s clothes, stretched out her hand and stroked the clothes lightly stroked, then she looked over at Cui Xiaoxin and reported back: "Miss, the fabrics are somewhat similar, but the colour——sort of looks like it, but also doesn’t really looks like it. It was so dark outside that I could not see what colour the fabric was."
Li Muyang adopted a puzzled look. "If I were the saviour, I would have stated clearly to you——why would I hide such a fact.".
Cui Xiaoxin's eyes like a blade scraped back and forth Li Muyang's face. She had always felt that this man was a little strange, and there was something about him that makes her feel familiar. Most importantly, he suddenly appeared at Li Shinian's side and Li Shinian also treated him pretty well——
However, Cui Xiaoxin knew that this is not Li Muyang. Whether it is the height, looks, temperament, voice of speech and the movements and gestures, it was not that of the Li Muyang that she was familiar with.
Perhaps, Li Muyang was no longer the Li Muyang she was familiar with?
After a long while, Cui Xiaoxin finally gave up, waving dismissively she said to the several bodyguards. "Search. Go search."
"Yes." The bodyguards went off to search the other rooms.
Cui Xiaoxin stood by a Tiandu cherry tree in the courtyard, the night was dark and cold, and the cherry blossoms were quietly blooming, exuding a delicate, faint fragrance.
A gust of wind blew, the branches of the Tiandu cherry tree drifted up with the breeze.
Taohong looked up and exclaimed with surprise, "Miss, it’s snowing."
"Where? Where?" Liulu ran to the middle of the courtyard and looked up at the sky. When she saw a piece of snow falling in the sky, she also shouted out, "Miss, it really is snowing."
Cui Xiaoxin stretched out her hand, the fluff-like snowflake melted right away, leaving her hand icy cold and wet.
However, Cui Xiaoxin’s heart felt heavy, there was a suffocating feeling lingering in the bottom of the heart that she could not get rid of.
"Miss Xiaoxin, withered flowers will bloom again, people that are gone will return again. There will be a day when the whole matter comes to light." Li Muyang walked over to where Cui Xiaoxin was, saying in a soft and comforting voice. "Since he is willing to sacrifice his life to save you, how would he be willing to leave you?"
Cui Xiaoxin's eyebrows were slightly raised, as she turned around to look at Li Muyang. "Li Mu, what kind of person are you exactly?"
"Cart driver." Li Muyang stated. "Miss Shinian’s cart driver."
A piece of snowflake landed on Cui Xiaoxin's slender and long eyelashes. Her eyelashes fluttered and shook the snowflake off, as she softly said, "He really is an interesting cart driver."
Cui Meng, wearing an unlined garment, was trembling uncontrollably as he stood to one side waiting to serve, as long as the young Miss does not leave, he also does not dare to return to his room to sleep.
Hearing the Young Miss praise someone else's cart driver as 'interesting', Cui Meng felt very jealous. He thought he was also an interesting cart diver but the Young Miss had not got to know him deeply yet.
Cui Meng secretly decided that, later he also wants to be like this Li Mu, show off more in front of the Young Miss. He must make the several Young Miss remember his name, then the rewards of gold and jade will be enough for him to enjoy for a lifetime.
"Thank you for the praise, Miss Xiaoxin." Li Muyang bowed deeply to express his thanks
Cui Xiaoxin sighed softly, "You are like a person."
"Who?" Li Muyang sounded a little emotional as he asked.
Cui Xiaoxin looked up at him and said, "Li Muyang."
"Oh——" said Li Muyang, with a chuckle, "I’ve heard that Cousin Muyang and Miss Xiaoxin are good friends."
"Yes," Cui Xiaoxin swept her gaze down at Li Muyang's hand again, "A very good friend."
In order to save her, Li Muyang's hand was stabbed by Assassin Crow.
Today, in order to save her, her saviour's hand was stabbed by the assassin.
A familiar scene, the same picture.
However, the latter’s identity was a mystery.
Very quickly, Cui Yu had returned with numerous bodyguards to report back: "Miss, we did not find any hand injured suspect. There is a cart driver who injured his hand while fixing the saddle but the wound——it doesn't look like it was pierced by a sharp object."
Cui Xiaoxin waved dismissively, "Go back to rest. Since he does not want to show himself, most likely he has left already."
"We will take turns to guard the front door." After the assassination incident, would Cui Yu dare be careless again? With just that matter alone, he most likely would receive heavy punishment once he returns. He did not know whether the assassin will strike again, in any case, the protection of the young lady was the most important.
Li Shinian walked over to Cui Xiaoxin side, softly saying: "Sister Xiaoxin, Li Mu is right. The man who is willing to lay down his life to save you must be your admirer. What admirer will run away after saving your life? You may rest assured that he will come back."
Cui Xiaoxin nodded. "I hope so."
Li Shinian pulled Cui Xiaoxin by the arm, saying: "Sister Xiaoxin, the snow is getting heavier. Let’s hurry back to bed. Your hands are cold, I’m afraid you’ll catch a cold."
"Don't worry." Cui Xiaoxin softly said: "I have just ate a one thousand year old ginseng pill, the body is still warm. If you are cold, come to my place to take a pill to warm your body"
"Sister Xiaoxin, you eat a thousand year old ginseng pill as a cold prevention medicine?" Li Shinian said teasingly.
Seeing Li Shinian’s smiling expression, the worried look on Cui Xiaoxin’s face finally eased a little. "You should have one. You can’t blame me for catching a cold."
"Of course I’m going have one." Li Shinian said with a grinning smile. "I don’t know what a thousand-year old ginseng tastes like, I don't know if it is as fragrant as dog meat."
"Hush, in the pure lands of Buddhism, the words meat and wine must not be mentioned." Cui Xiaoxin reminded.
"Afraid of what? Their Bodhisattvas have also drank wine and eaten meat, Buddha sits in the heart——in order to drink and eat meat, they will find excuses for themselves. Yes, Sister Xiaxoin, I tell you something, eating dog meat in winder is a great joy in life. Back then my brother and I often ate dog meat hotpot in the snow. Place the dog meat in the pot and stew it then put it in chili and cooking wine. Just how fragrant that was——"
Cui Xiaoxin looked at Li Shinian with a helpless look on her face: "If you continue to say such words, Bodhisattva will not help you find your brother."
"Fine, I won’t say it. I won't say it." Li Shinian hastily closed her mouth. "Go, sister Xiaoxin, let’s go to bed. I’m going to sleep with you tonight."
"Let’s go." Cui Xiaoxin took Li Shinian's hand and the two walked past the back courtyard.
"Amitabha Buddha——" Monk Fa Zheng appeared at doorway of the back courtyard, looked at Cui Xiaoxin and said: "Miss Xiaoxin, Master asks to see you."
Li Shinian was afraid of those monks forcing her to become a Buddhist. "Sister Xiaoxin, I will not go with you——I will wait for you in the room. I will not go to bed until you come back."
Cui Xiaoxin understood Li Shinian’s worry. She smiled and said, "Go to bed early, I will go see Priest Miaoxin. There may be a lot of things to talk about."
Waiting until Cui Xiaoxin left with a group of people, Li Shinian strutted over to where Li Muyang was. "Li Mu, where’s my Snowball?"
"Snowball is in the room, he should be asleep now." Li Muyang answered respectfully.
"That’s good. Did you feed him today?"
"I’ve fed him." Li Muyang said.
Li Shinian noticed that Cui Meng was eavesdropping, shot a glance at him and coldly shouted: "What are you looking at? Do you want me to feed your eyeballs to my Snowball?"
"I don’t dare to, I don't dare to——" Cui Meg hurriedly covered his eyes and slammed the door of the room shut.
"Brother, you exposed a flaw." Li Shinian leaned closer to Li Muyang and whispered to his ears.
Chapter 365: Marry Miss!
Li Muyang was shocked. He thought that he had acted so casually, how would he still have revealed flaws?
He had not changed his clothes, there was no wounds on his palm, and even the sulfur smell on his body was covered up using the juice of the 'cattle do not gnaw' grass, which gave a natural sweaty odour.
Even he felt nauseated at the smell, how could Taohong and Liulu those two girls still smell sulfur?
Besides Cui Meng, the pig-like roommate, who said he was out looking for a water source to bathe, made him seem suspicious, Li Muyang was very satisfied with his own performance.
The most important thing for being a talented actor is to play like life as a drama. He believed he had achieved that.
"What flaw?" Li Muyang asked. "
"The expression in your eyes," said Li Shinian, "When you look at Sister Xiaoxin, there were no worries, only joy and affection——I know you have feelings for her, but think about it, she had just been attacked by an assassin and almost lost her life. However, you were not worried at all, proving that you knew the matter has been resolved perfectly."
"Also, in your eyes there was joy, where did that joy come from? It’s because you were the one that saved her from danger. That’s why you have this heartfelt joy. You don’t want her to guess that you’re her saviour, but you’re looking forward to her seeing through your identity. You want to use your real identity to meet her, but had no choice but to conceal your identity in the face of reality. It’s a torment. Big brother, Sister Xioaxin is so clever, after a careful thought, she certainly will realise such crucial points."
Li Muyang shook his head. "She won't realise. Because she doesn’t know who I am. You know my real identity, and that’s why you notice my expression, noticing the slightest bit of emotional change in my eyes. She will not notice this, she can only look for evidence, use all kinds of evidence to confirm my identity."
"Brother, you really did it?" Li Shinian's eyes widened. "Did you really save Sister Xiaoxin?"
"Didn’t you already know?" Li Muyang's eyes also widened. "Didn’t you just tell me that I had exposed a flaw? Just now weren't you analysing the joy and affection within my eyes? And now you’re asking me if I did it? What are you playing at?"
"I just know." Li Shinian studied Li Muayng carefully as she continued. "How could I possibly know you would be so powerful? Brother, you have been hiding very deeply." "
"If I had just directly asked if you did it or not, you wouldn’t admit it, I guessed that it might be you, so I wanted to bluff you into admitting——Brother, how did you survive the outside? It is said that Jianghu is sinister, little white rabbits like you that is completely unguarded will be slaughtered and cooked in a hotpot."
"——" Li Muyang had to admit that his good little sister, Li Shinian, had once again taught him a lesson.
"What did you see?" Li Shinian curiously asked.
"Were you deliberately hiding under Sister Xiaoxin's hot spring, for the convenience of peeping? What did you see?" Li Shinian stared into Li Muyang’s eyes and asked with an excited face. "Sister Xiaxoin's figure must be nice. Did you see something you shouldn’t see? Tell me now, am I going to call Sister Xiaoxin sister-in-law?"
This time, Li Muyang refused to take the bait easily, shaking his head he said: "The hot spring was turbid and misty, I didn’t see anything——and I wasn't intentionally hiding under the hot spring——"
"Then why were you under the hot spring that Sister Xiaxoin was bathing in?" Li Shinian asked in response. "When Sister Xiaxoin returned to change she told me that she encountered an assassin in the host spring, but what was more frightening was that a person was hiding in the hot spring and saved her life at the critical moment——An now you admitted that the man who saved her life is you, so, was this intentional?"
"You have just heard from Cui Meng, my body was sweaty and smelled, so it was very uncomfortable to sleep, then I remembered I saw a hot spring earlier today when we were out looking for Buddha status, so I thought I could take a bath to sleep more comfortably—"
"So you got into the hot spring that Sister Xiaxoin was bathing in?"
"No, it was Xiaoxin who came into the hot spring I was bathing in." Li Muyang tired to explain.
Li Shinian with a face of contempt said: "Sister Xiaoxin is defenseless, Taohong and Liulu is clumsy and slow, I don't believe that you did not hear them coming over. You heard them but you did not immediately leave, instead hid away your clothes and hid yourself into the hot spring and refused to get up——Brother, you said you had no other thoughts, do you think I will believe this?"
"You also wouldn't believe it yourself, would you?"
"That is the truth."
"Well, since that is the case——" Li Shinian examined Li Muyang from top to bottom before she said: "You've been away for a while and had improved this much? You could even block the attack of an assassin? Also, Sister Xiaoxin said that your palm have been pierced, and also shed a lot of blood——"
Li Shinian reached out and grabbed Li Muyang's hand, "Where’s the wound? Where’s the blood? Not even the skin is injured——Brother, did you really save Sister Xiaxoin? If you really did, why is there not a wound on your hand?"
Li Muyang was about to cry. "Do you want me to admit it or want me to deny it?"
"I want to hear you tell me the truth."
"I am telling the truth." "
"Brother, you have changed." Li Shinian's voice sounded upset. "You never lied to me before."
"But you often trick me. You just tricked me now."
"Yes." Li Shinian giggled. "This proves that I've not changed. I will always be your good little sister."
Cui Meng pushed open to see Li Shinian pulling Li Muyang’s hand with a bright smile on her face, his eyes widened like he had just saw a ghost.
Li Shinian shot a glare at Cui Meng, "What are you looking at? Do you want me to scoop out your eyeballs to feed the dogs?"
"I didn’t see anything." Cui Meng hurriedly covered his eyes. "I came out to see the snow." "
"Why is a burly brute like you admiring the snow? Is the snow for people like you to see? Get back to bed."
"Yes yes yes——" Cui Meng immediately closed the door and ran back.
Li Shinian loosened Li Muyang’s hand and deliberately raised the volume of her voice. "Take good care of my Snowball or else."
"Yes, Miss." Li Muyang also cooperated with the act.
Li Shinian then lowered her voice. "Today’s business is not over. Tomorrow, I’ll find another chance to interrogate you. You haven’t told me how your hand healed so quickly."
"Fine." Li Muyang held back his smile.
"Don't laugh." Li Shinian said.
"You have become like this——you're too ugly to laugh," said Li Shinian, "it’s a torment to me."
Li Shinian waved to Li Muyang. "Go back to sleep. I’m going to see if Sister Xiaoxin is back yet. Those monks won’t convert her to Buddhism, right? I do not know what those monks are thinking, pretty girls like us, who wants to be a nun? What’s the good of being a monk? You cannot eat delicious food, cannot sleep well, why does people want to be a monk, I do not want to——"
Watching Li Shinian skip away, Li Muyang’s mouth curved in a sweet smile.
When they were young, whenever he was bullied or was insulted, as long as he saw Li Shinian, his mood was lifted right away, but there was also a sweet feeling like had had eaten honey.
She was the dried orange after drinking bitter medicine, the drumstick after being punished.
She was a little fairy that had descended at his side, the compensation that the heavens had given him.
Li Muyang really found it hard to imagine that, during those years when he was riddled with severe illness, if there was no Li Shinian, could he have been able to survive those times?
If there is not a speck of light in his life, what was the meaning of life?
On his way to his new school Li Muyang missed Li Shinian. When he was training in Starry Sky he missed Li Shinian. Before entering the illusion he missed Li Shinian, and when the illusion collapsed and he may never come out of the illusion he missed Li Shinian several times more.
"It feels so good to be home." Li Muyang muttered.
Looking at the snow that filled the sky, and sniffing the fragrance distributed from the Tiandu cherry trees, Li Muyang couldn't help but feel somewhat captivated.
If it was possible, he hoped that he could freeze this moment.
When Li Muyang pushed open the door, Cui Meng was lying in bed staring overhead at a pillar.
Li Muyang drew a basin of cold water and then added a little hot water to wash his face. He felt much more refreshed and comfortable.
The face changing skill of Hong Xiu really is unrivalled, the shape and colour of his face did not fade in water. It was much better than those Jianghu quack doctors.
"Why don't you sleep?" When Li Muyang finished, seeing that Cui Meng was still staring wide-eyed and lying there on the bed, he couldn't help asking aloud.
In his mind, he just wanted to throw the big guy down the mountain. But thinking that he had to get along with him for a few days, and may unavoidably reveal some flaws, at this time he still needed to be lenient with him.
"I was sleeping soundly, but now that I have been awakened I cannot fall back asleep." Cui Meng said with a dull expression in his eyes. "Li Mu, are you going to marry the Miss of your family?"
Chapter 366: Walking on thin ice!
"Are you going to marry the young miss of your family?" Cui Meng suddenly asked. The words were startling and could cause outrage.
"How is that possible?" Li Muyang had known he would ask such a question, so he didn’t feel surprised at all. "The young miss of my family is beautiful like an angel, how can a cart driver wish to marry her?"
"But I just saw——"
"We are relatives." Li Muyang continued to explain. "We have been playing together since young."
"I see." Cui Meng was suddenly in a cheerful mood. He could not marry the Miss of his family, but Li Mu also cannot marry the Miss of their family. The world is so fair and lovely. "I thought you were in love with your Miss. It frightened me to see you two holding hands——but our Miss won’t be holding hands with other men, she does not even hold hands with her older brother."
"The young miss of your family is too cold."
"No. The young miss of our family is well educated and a model of propriety."
Li Muyang smiled coldly, "You mean that the Miss of my family is not well educated and a model of propriety? Looks like I’m going have to ask the Miss of your family if she thinks the same thing about our Miss."
Cui Meng looked terrified, jumped from the bed, crying: 'Li Mu, I did not mean that, I really did not mean that——I meant that our family’s Miss is a graceful girl of noble birth, while your family’s Miss is a pretty girl of humble birth. A graceful girl from a noble family has its own good, while a pretty girl from a humble family also has its own good. I also like your family’s Miss, I think she is smart and cute, and also amiable, we all like Miss Shinian very much——"
Li Muyang looked at Cui Meng, saying, "Is that so?"
"It is the truth."
"Then I’ll note this down for now. If you dare speak nonsense again, or say something that I don’t like——I’ll tell the two young Miss what you just said and ask them to judge."
"I don’t dare to, I don’t dare to——" Cui Meng laughed foolishly.
Now that Li Muyang had taught Cui Meng a lesson, he did not have the interest to talk to him any more. He pulled the blanket and snuggled deep in the blanket on the small bed next to him.
Sniffing the heavy 'cattle do not gnaw' grass smell on him, Li Muyang felt kind of nauseated.
If he had known earlier, he would not have gone to the hot spring. The more he washed the dirtier he was, then it is better not to bath.
Then on another thought, it was better he went, otherwise there was no way he could save Cui Xiaoxin.
If Cui Xiaoxin had been killed by the assassin tonight and could not do anything, then he most likely would regret it his entire life?
With that thought, Li Muyang went to sleep peacefully.
Cui Meng secretly glanced at Li Muyang who was sleeping peacefully with half-shut eyes, then also closed his eyes and went to sleep.
Li Muyang was awakened by the strong light pouring through the window, opened his eyes to a bright light room that almost blinded him.
The heavy snow last night had stopped, leaving the White cloud mountain covered with snow, like an ethereal world of ice sculptures.
Cui Meng was soundly asleep, still making loud snoring sounds.
Li Muyang quietly got up, drew a tub of ice water to wash his face, and then stretched his body in the courtyard.
In order to conceal his identity, he could not practice 'The art of the breaking body', or the 'Authentic Scripture of Pervading Mystery', but also could not practice his calligraphy and painting skills——a cart driver will not have so many skills.
Li Muyang walked a few laps around the courtyard when he saw a monk picking up a broom to clear the snow in the distance. Li Muyang also took a broom to help.
The two monks gave him a friendly smile, without saying anything, and the three people soon cleared the snow in the back courtyard.
The two monks evidently had some cultivation foundation, while clearing the snow their face was not red nor were they gasping for breath, and there was not a bead of sweat on their clear and smooth forehead.
Li Muyang, in order to perfect his disguise, deliberately wiped some snow on his forehead to melt into beads of sweat. "So tired after doing a little work, it seems that my body is getting worse."
A little monk looked at Li Muyang’s sallow face, saying: "Benefactor does not look too good, do you have an illness?"
"I have a bad liver." Li Muyang said, clutching his chest.
"You should abstain from alcohol, drink as little as possible. And should pay attention to rest, you must not exhaust yourself."
"Thank you, Master." Li Muyang bowed his thanks.
"I am called Wuliang." The enthusiastic monk smiled. "This is my Senior brother Wuyan."
"Nice to meet you two." Li Muyang bowed to Monk Wuyan.
Cui Xiaoxin was standing on a higher-level platform admiring the snowy landscape, and watching Li Muyang and the two monks sweeping the snow for a while. When Li Muyang looked, nodded at him, and then turned toward the front courtyard.
Li Muyang inwardly breathed a sigh of relief, while he was sweeping the snow he had already sensed that someone was watching him and had to pretend it was a strenuous job.
Waiting until Cui Xiaoxin quietly left without saying anything, Li Muyang felt somewhat disappointed.
Li Shinian's eyes were indeed sharp, with one glimpse she had saw through his psychological changes at that moment.
He wanted to use his real identity to see Cui Xiaoxin again, but in the face of reality he could only over up the truth.
"I can only conceal my identity." Li Muyang heavily breathed out a long sigh. Ever since he had stepped in to Tiandu, every step was as if walking on thin ice, extremely dangerous.
Cui Xiaoxin and Li Shinian had planned to stay in White Cloud Mountain for several days, but because of the assassination attack, the Cui family was extremely nervous and had sent skilled masters over to protect Cui Xiaoxin. The grandfather of the Cui family, Cui Xichen, had personally issued an order that in any case must bring Cui Xiaoxin safely back to Tiandu.
Heart Buddha Ning Xinhai personally led the elites of the Cui family to come collect Cui Xiaoxin home.
Cui Xiaoxin originally wanted to stay for a few more days, which she had decided with Li Shinian when they got here. But if they do not go back, the family in Tiandu must be worried and the people of the Thousand Buddha Temple will be anxious, having to be vigilant and protecting her at all times. Since it was troublesome to both sides, it will be better for her to go back to free others from suffering.
Li Shinian came to pray for her Brother, and now that her big brother had returned the night before, there was no meaning for her to stay any longer in Thousand Buddha Temple. Moreover, the monks were trying to convert her to Buddhism. Li Shinian now even more wanted to hurry back to Tiandu than Cui Xiaoxin; she couldn’t stay in Thousand Buddha temple any longer.
Cui Xiaoxin and Li Shinian, after a discussion, decided to go back after the meal.
Li Muyang after eating carried Snowball to meet up with the rest of the troops.
Li Muyang had met Heart Buddha Ning Xinhai before, and was well aware of his powerful strength and astonishing eyesight. There was a possibility of him being able to see through his identity. Li Muyang deliberately acted low-key, hiding behind a group of cart drivers and servants.
He wanted to keep a low profile, but Snowball was far from low-key.
Maybe due to the fact that he had been trapped in the cage for too long, today Snowball was very restless.
Stretching his body, drilled out of the cage that Li Shinian had prepared.
His snow-white body leaped in the air, and seeing the world of snow and ice outside as well as the gathering of rich water elements, Snowball opened his mouth and began inhaling madly.
The treetops, stonewalls, and the large amount of snow on the ground gathered towards the place where Snowball was, and immediately crowded around and wrapping him within.
Snowball really became a truly large snowball.
Terrified, Li Muyang at once rushed over to smash the accumulating snow, and then held Snowball in his arms.
Snowball seemed upset, cast a resentful glance at Li Muyang, and then spat out saliva non stop.
For skilled masters, not the slightest movement in the surroundings can escape their eyes and ears.
The movement that Snowball had created naturally alarmed Heart Buddha and other people. He looked over in the direction of Li Muyang, his gaze fixed on Snowball in Li Muyang's arms.
Li Muyang’s heart pounded violently, must not let him realise that Snowball is the Weak water, must not let him know the true identity of Snowball. If the identity of Snowball is exposed, it is estimated that it will be more shocking and bring about an uproar than the incident of Li Muyang's identity being exposed——
The heart of the weak water was a magical weapon that everyone hopes to possess. The appearance of the heart of the weak water in Tiandu would most likely bring the cultivators of the whole divine continent of flocking there?
The more you worry about a matter, the more likely it will happen.
Heart Buddha Ning Xinhai gave a cupped fist salute to Li Muyang and said: "Come over."
Li Muyang dared not disobey, stooped low and walked over with Snowball in his arms.
Heart Buddha Ning Xinhai from a close distance seriously studied Snowball in the arms of Li Muyang, then after a long while asked, "What is this? How come I’ve never seen something like this before?"
"This is a rabbit. A Flying Rabbit——" said Cui Meng with a smile. Since he was also a person of the Cui family, he naturally knew that Ning Xinhai occupied a unique status in the Cui family. Since Butler Ning Xinhai had directly asked a question, he could make himself known to him by standing forward to answer, right?
Nin Xinghai swept a glance over Cui Meng, saying in a cold voice, "Am I asking you?"
Terrified, Cui Meng bowed his head submissively and stepped back.
Li Muyang dared not look up, like a real cart driver, and said humbly: "This is a Flying rabbit. A relatively rare breed of rabbit——"
"Flying Rabbit?" Ning Xinhai furrowed his brows, deep in thought. After a while, shook his head and said, "Where did you get it?"
"This——was discovered by Governor Lu as he passed through Flower language plains. He saw that it was really cute, so ordered people to capture it as a gift to our family's Miss." Li Muyang's mind moved quickly, pushing the discovery of Snowball over to Lu Qingming. Even if Ning Xinhai had some status in the Cui family, he wouldn't have the courage to run over to the Lu mansion to ask Governor Lu where he got the rabbit, right?"
As expected, Ning Xinhai’s expression eased a little: "So it is a special species discovered in Flower language plains. I have long heard of the vast mysteries of the Flower language plains, there are countless rare treasures and strange beasts, I must go take a look when I have the time."
Li Muyang bowed his head and did not say anything else, this was not a conversation that he could continue as a servant.
"Can you let me hold it?" Ning Xinhai reached out his hands, asking with a smile.
Li Muyang refused to give, also dared not to give.
If this silly Snowball was ignorant of the seriousness and spat out a bubble at Ning Xinhai, then those splitting bubbles will naturally arouse the attention of Master Ning Xinhai.
At that time, even if he said again that Snowball is a special species of rabbit, Ning Xinhai most likely will not believe him, right?
"He is shy." Li Muyang said, lowering his head.
"He will get familiar after a hug." Ning Xinhai smiled. "What? Are you afraid I won't give it back to you?"
"I don’t dare——"
"Then let me see." Ning Xinhai stubbornly stretched out his hand, the smile on the face disappeared. "I like to see what is so rare about this flying rabbit, so much so that you will not let go of it——"
