Volume IV Chapter 119 Eating Breakfast Is Also Not Easy
The Next Day.
When Pei’ Er walk into Su Xian Courtyard to wake up Su Su, she found her own lady was still wearing the black raiding dress from the night before, while supporting her cheek, she sat by the door and her facial expression was happy but at the same time troubled. Her brows were frowning but her lips were smiling, in short, her mood was so complex that it cannot be described with words.
Pei Er hurriedly went forward and sat beside her, whispered, “Miss, how come you got up so early? Or… didn’t you sleep?”
Su Su suddenly heard a voice of Pei ‘er, she was first alarmed, the sighed heavily from her mooning and back to reality.
For Pei Er it was somewhat an unfathomable mystery. She often doesn’t understand what’s going on inside the mind of Miss anyway. She did not pursue the matter anymore, she had to say the purpose of getting Su Su up early in the morning. “ Right, Miss, your mother is back and she asked for you to come for breakfast.”
Su Su’s eyes widened, stared at Pei Er with face full of panic and horror. Pei Er was startled by Su Su’s reaction,” Why?What happened?”
Su Su covered her face and said, “Pei Er, I think this time it will be tragic.”
Last night when she came back, she kept tossing and turning, she couldn’t sleep. The moment she shut her eyes, she would think of him gazing at her, remember his breath, think of him … Worse thing was, she was very afraid. She was not afraid of the mother’s punishment , not even afraid of being punished very badly, but very afraid if last night’s thing will make her mother angry and would not like Mo Yuan, what would she do?
Pei Er doesn’t understand Su Su’s dilemma at all, she only thought that Su Su was afraid because of the punishment for running away, she smiled and calmed her, “ Miss, you running away from home, the Madam doesn’t seem to be angry, so don’t worry too much.”
Su Su can only roll her eyes at Pei Er. She was too lazy to explain anything to her, she stood up and stretched, took a deep breath, then said, “Okay, let’s go!”
Pei Er grabbed Su Su wrist and glanced at her clothes and said, “Would you like to wear this dress over there?”
Su Su looked down and patted her forehead, turned and rushed into the room, and changed into a white dress before running out again.
Su Su went to the next yard to find Sang Nuan but she did not expect her to be out of the courtyard. She slowly swayed her way down to the front hall and she did not expect that the big round table was already filled with people, and everyone seemed to be waiting just for her.
Su Su hurriedly walked over. When she saw the people sitting on the round table she was stunned, all the family members except Uncle Su Yu who was not at home were there. Sang Nuan was already settled down, even Mo Yuan, Ye Lie, Li Yang and Ao San who she had not seen for two days.
Su Su looked at her Dad. She saw that he was putting a dish on her Mom’s plate, his disposition looked normal, she relaxed; her mother probably had not told him yet about last night. If that’s the case, Mo Yuan will not be sitting there.
Just a passing thought about it, Su Su also quietly glimpsed at Mo Yuan, that one glimpsed it made her brows wrinkled. What happened to Mo Yuan? When she saw him last night, his face was not ruddy but not deathly pale either. He would be unusual on ordinary days but today he had a weary look under his eyes and it can’t be concealed. It was not like the poison was acting up but an extremely weary look.
Su Ren saw Su Su staring at Mo Yuan lost in her thought, he couldn’t help it but felt helpless, to that young joker in the end what did she find good and attractive. If it was not for sister-in-law’s return, they were fortunate that all Big Brother’s full attention was on her. If Su Ling saw that Su Su was staring absentmindedly like this at that man, he was afraid, Mo Yuan will be in trouble. Su Ren gave a light cough and said, “Su Su come and sit down and have a breakfast.”
Su Su quickly looked away from Mo Yuan, smiled and said, “Dad, Mom, Second Uncle, Second Aunt, Xiao Yan, good morning.”
Several people nodded to her, also the three youngsters sitting next to each other said in unison, “Sister good morning.”
Su Ling was giving Gu Yun a porridge, when he looked up at Su Su, he found that she looked a little gloomy anxiously asked, “What’s the matter? Are you sick?”
Su Su shook her head quickly. “Dad, I am fine.”
“It’s all right then, just have breakfast.” Su Ling also gave a bowl of porridge to Su Su. She quickly took the bowl and sat next to Sang Nuan. Su Su can’t stop giving quick glimpses towards her mother, giving the sense that she was even afraid to let her notice her presence.
The only thing the family knew was that Su Su run away from home and afraid to be punished by Gu Yun, that’s why she was being very behave today, but what they don’t know that she was actually extremely afraid.
Sang Nuan pulled Su Su’s sleeve, in her eyes were full of words,’ What happened?’ Su Su replied to Sang Nuan with expression of crying without tears, then bowed her head and silently ate her breakfast.
Sang Nuan felt that something was wrong. Early in the morning a maid servant came to invite her for breakfast, saying that the Madam came back. Sang Nuan was always curious about Su Su’s mother , what kind a woman raised a daughter like that. When she saw the Big Madam at first sight, she couldn’t believe it because she was so young. Su Su inherited 7 to 8 points of her beauty, her apricot lips, a pair of slightly raised eyebrows, she was not fair like an average woman but her skin was very smooth, there were two shallow scars on her right cheeks. It looked like a knife wound, for other woman it will not look good but for her, it was an added charm.
When Sang Nuan came to salute to her, she slightly looked up. Her eyes were clear and sharp, and it seemed that in just one glance, she could clearly see a person. At that moment, Sang Nuan knew when Su Su learned that keen attention to detail and shrewd judgement.
When Gu Yun went back to their room last night, she asked Su Ling if he knew who these young people were, what they came to do at home. When Gu Yun glanced at Mo Yuan this morning, her eyes had a faint smile because this person was interesting. He was poisoned and dared to jump for a night. Even if you want to jump, shouldn’t you pull your girlfriend even just for a company? Who would appreciate it, if you jump alone? Foolish indeed…
“Su Su, after our meal, you will take them both to visit your aunt in the Shu Shan Residence. Early treatment was also better. If you are scared, you can go to minister residence and ask Big Aunt to go together with you.”
Gu Yun suddenly talked to her and Su Su’s eyes actually sparked, she looked at her mother , although his father’s face doesn’t look amiable but he did not raise any objection, Su Su quickly replied, “ Okay.”
Sitting across the Mo Yuan and Tan Tai Ye Lie, Su Chen Fan was quietly looking at the two men who suddenly appeared at their home. Secretly, he was making comparisons. The men in the General’s Government were strong and powerful, but staring at these two men’s pale faces, a sick look, Chen Fan shook his head, disdainfully said,” Why the men sister took back home look sick? Does sister like man that are sickly looking?”
“Cough and cough!” Su Su had a porridge stuck in her throat upon hearing the comment, she almost choked to death, stared at Su Chen Fan, grabbed a meat dumpling and in her fit of fury smashed the bun on his head.
“Ya yo!” Chen Fan covered his head and was not convinced, he wanted to speak more. Su Su scolded him angrily, “Su Chen Fan, you dare speak indiscriminately, you think I can’t beat you to death!”
Only eight-year-old Su Chen Fan gave a ‘poor look’ at the two brothers around him. The two just patted him on the shoulder both left and right, but no one spoke to his aid. He could only compromise again, that he was beneath the evil forces, then just obediently shut his mouth.
Volume II Chapter 66 Who Dares Bully My Sister Ah Nuan?
Su Su came and guessed correctly the situation inside the cave was not good but had not expected to see such spectacle. At the center of the cave, Sang Leng was holding the silver gun, glaring and pointing the gun towards the Mohists and Yi Dang Jia. Those people were looking at him coldly, also at Sang Nuan that was standing behind him. They were not paying attention to Sang Leng but at the corner of their eyes, they were more concerned about Ao Tian. They were dreading him more than anyone inside that cave.
Sang Nuan’s appearance looked very concerning, her forehead was full of sweat and her face looked deathly pale. She was biting her lower lip as if she was making an effort to stay sober and not faint. Her eyes have no trace of fear or do not seems to back down, her vision was fixed at the people’s eyes opposite her whose eyes were always looking at her with indifference.
“Ah Nuan !” Su Su ran to the side of Sang Nuan to hold her shoulder. She felt that the person’s whole body was shaking inside. It does not matter if these people were having a confrontation but for Su Su, she rushed to Sang Nuan’s aid and quickly sat her down on a chair.
When Su Su suddenly ran inside the cave, the Mohist people turned their attention towards the entrance and naturally saw Mo Yuan with that same look of cold indifference.
When the man headed toward Mo Yuan saw his deathly pale face, he had a frown inside his heart. He did not make his reaction obvious and he did not make comment about it but he still moved forward to respectfully salute before him, “ Lord Mo shao shu”.
Mo Yuan did not say anything. He just nodded his head in response and continued standing. This task took an enormous amount of effort from him, just for such simple task, it was consuming all his strength.
Sang Nuan’s body was still shaking even though she was already sitting down. Su Su was greatly worried, wanting an assurance she asked, “Ah Nuan, are you alright?”
Sang Nuan shook her head. Su Su glanced at Mohist people who were looking at Mo Yuan and then looked at Ye Dang Jia who was partly hidden behind the Mohist . Su Su in a tone of voice not caring about what the other party’s reaction asked her, “ Did they bully you?”
Sang Nuan sneered, “ Whatever, anything that came from them is not worthwhile.”
Sang Nuan’s voice was chilly. Her eyes were full of the look of indifference that though she was sitting weakly on the chair at this moment her manner remained imposing.
Yi Meng regretted it so much from the beginning when Mo Sang died, these two bastards were only about two years old. During that time, there were countless men that were loyal to Mo Sang and he does not know if these two children were his own. Only if he were not dreading the Mohist that time, he would have killed them already. If he only knew then what he knew now, that the Mohist were not even aware of their existence! He should have killed these two troublesome bastards then.
His heart was full of anxiousness, also thinking of that traitorous Xiang Erye who actually run off unexpectedly taking with him several people and at leaving him alone. Now, he was by himself. What was more damning was that this wicked woman, Sang Nuan, unexpectedly studied deadly poisons behind his back. In the past he defeated Mo Sang’s poison technique, however, that was many years ago now he must remove Sang Nuan in any event, otherwise, she will get the Wolf Island. If that ever happened he won’t be able to preserve his life. But before any of that, he wants to settle the issue of that woman from Su family, she must be dealt with first.
Yi Dang Jia quietly observed the face of Mo Yuan and in his heart, he thought of something. He pointed at Su Su and said on top of his voice, ” She is to be blamed for this. She was from Su family and she conspired with Sang Nuan, also she is the one who also colluded with Tantai family. Together, they wanted to snatch for themselves the Mohist precious treasure. This woman came on the island with a disguise and tricked Mo shao shu from the beginning. After winning his trust, they then poisoned him! You take a close look at Mo shao shu’s appearance. Didn’t he appeared poisoned and it is by them! There is definitely a conspiracy between Su family and Tantai family! Now that Tantai Ye Lie escaped, do not let this woman escape also!”
Su Su raise her head and stared at him with firmness, in a chilling voice scolded him,” Is that all you have to say? You better shut up now because if you do not shut up this very moment, I will make you shut that mouth forever! ”
Yi Dang Jia suddenly opened his eyes wider, angrily glaring at Su Su , ” Small silly girl, big words do not ……”
Yi Dang Jia does not have the time to finish his words when he felt a bright and cold object touched his nape, followed by the gushing of warm blood. The clamoring person just a moment ago now lay dead.
Ao Jie with a blank expression drew back his sword. After striking his target, he walks silently beside Ao Tian.
The death of Yi Meng, the pirate’s chief, apart from a frown from Su Su’s face, nobody really cared.
The man in his early forties from Mo clan took the initiative to ask Sang Nuan in a tone of apathy, “The thing that Mo Sang left behind, where is it?”
“Except for several books about plants, my mother did not leave anything to me?”
“Look here! Considering that you are a Mohist offspring, hand over Ling Shi and Lingcao of Mo Sang if you think I can’t kill you.” The man’s voice was calm but carried with it an infinite coldness. Su Su knitted her brows and when she was just about to speak, Sang Nuan stood up in reply, “I am not a person of Mohist, I am not in the past and neither in the future! I told you what my mother left behind, none of these things that you claimed. Even if my mother left me with anything, I will not give them over to you; do as you wish to do if you have the ability to do it.”
After saying those words, she reached out with one hand to push Su Su away. Her hand gesturing for her not to come nearer and meddle when out of nowhere, a white mist ascended from her fingertips but it did not scatter but her intention was set clearly.
The people of Mohist clan definitely saw clearly the white mist from Sang Nuan’s hand. Their expressions changed whereas the indifferent eyes were now covered with vigilance and an intention to strike back.
“That’s enough.” A man’s whisper sounded in an instant. That whisper shook the two groups of people like a quake. They could not refrain themselves from falling one step back.
He still dared to use his internal force unexpectedly! Su Su raised her head and watched the man that was still standing at the threshold of the cave. She then heard that cold voice once more, ” I got the Ling Shi. I also looked everywhere on the Island. Younger Aunt did not leave behind any relics.”
Su Su felt strange and wondered what his heart’s intent was. He has the Lingcao and the jade tassels of Mo Sang, why was he claiming that he does not have the relics in possession? What was Mo Yuan planning now?
After listening to the words of Mo Yuan, the chief elder did not want to make things more awkward with Sang Nuan and replied, “ Since this is the case, the Ling Shi was found, give Mo shao shu back to his servants. “
Su Su seemed to feel that these Mohist elders truly respect Mo Yuan. Their respect was not only because he was their leader but it was coupled with a deep reverence .
Su Su was carefully analyzing and observing these people when she heard Mo Yuan called them, “ You come with me.”
Su Su wanted to call out after him and stop him, owing to the fact that his health was not suitable to show off such endogenic power again. But in the end, she did not make a noise thinking that Mo Yuan had a reason for doing what he does. Though it was unclear to her whatever his planning, she did not believe that it will add further to the chaos.
Su Su just exclaimed a sigh and look back just to see Sang Nuan paralyzed and collapsed on a chair. The white mist from the air has long vanished. Her face was deathly pale but her lips have a trace of a sneer, smiling to her coldly, assuring her that she was alright. Su Su suddenly thought of something… …
“Uncle Ao, Su Su will ask your help and do me one more favor?”
Ao Tian looked at her stern and serious appearance with some curiosity. “Help.” She seldom uses this word.
Su Su shook her head, “ What do you say Ah Nuan, let’s go to the medical shed.”
Su Su and Sang Leng held Sang Nuan together and returned to the medical shed, sitting her down on the chair, Su Su suddenly asked, “Ah Nuan, could you also help?” ” What do you want to do?” Sang Nuan was puzzled, the poison of Mo Yuan she already tried her best to managed . There are no other people who was injured by poison, what does she need in her place?Seeing that Sang Nuan’s spirit was pretty good, Su Su said to Sang Leng that was standing nearby, “Sang Leng , help me find an incense burner and a fragrance.”
Sang Leng looking at her strange behavior, asked, “ What are you going to do? “
Su Su glared at him and said with a snort, “ Just find it and you will see.”
Sang Nuan knew that Su Su could be very well into some funny weird stuff, without thinking said to them, “You do not need to look everywhere. The medical shed has one, it’s in a low cabinet.”
Sang Leng went over to open the low cabinet and inside there was really a small incense burner and a fragrance less than half full. Su Su let him put the fragrance on the table and then moved the table towards the door front.
“Uncle Ao, I want to swear sisterhood with Ah Nuan properly. In my heart you are an elder, I thought of you to help me and become our witness.”
Su Su suddenly said such words and Ao Tian expression did not change, but on the other hand, the siblings were greatly surprised and shout at the same time, “ Su Su?!”
When Ao Tian heard Su Su previously that she wanted an incense burner and fragrance, he already guessed correctly what she wanted to do. Sweeping a glance at Sang Nuan and Sang Leng’s shocked faces, Ao Tian commented with a smile, “You have not sworn brotherhood yet?”
“Before it was to prevaricate Yi Dang Jia, it was said casually, however this time it is to swear before the incense with heaven and earth as a witness .”
Su Su’s face was very solemn, Ao Tian knew then that for her it was not a joke, but still, he has to verify, “ Have you thought about it and have no doubts about it?”
Su Su nodded and earnestly replied, ” I am very sincere and have no doubts about it.” She truly appreciated Sang Nuan before. During that time when she discovered that the murderer was Sang Nuan, she was awfully sad and distressed. However, she felt sorry for her and loved her more dearly, this woman, granted if she was not same as a lotus to grow out the mud unblemished* (figuratively means principled and incorruptible) , to survive in the middle of steep escarpments, even plum flower have to survived the poor frosty environment and has to be equally stubborn to bloom fully. She liked her and enjoyed her company. She loved to be her sister! Ao Tian was never a stodgy nor pedantic as a person since Su Su established it in her heart, he will not oppose, ” Well then, let’s begin.”Su Su smiled gleefully and picked up the incense and was about to light it up but heard a voice of a woman’s whisper, “ No”.
Su Su frowned, “Ah Nuan , don’t you want to?” Sang Nuan smiled and in a soft lowly voice coldly said, “You are the only daughter of dignified Su clan and your status full of honor, your virtue is incomparable to be tied to you as a sworn sister. Forget it, I am alright.” Su Su felt sorry if she is a young Mo lady, but she will never be a Mo lady, she will even take the initiative to boast and swear sisterhood. But, since she is just a pirate, hands were covered with the blood of the pirate.. … that’s why she thought they do not deserve to be sworn together.
“I want to be sworn with you not to boast my noble identity, though I am a daughter of Su family which is right I am still just Su .” Su Su looked at Sang Nuan with a dazzling smile. Sang Nuan deeply sighed, “Su Su, I am a pirate.” How could a Su possibly accept a pirate as their daughter’s sworn sister, in the end, I might incriminate you to get a scolding from your family members.”
Su Su cannot comprehend it, pirate? Her mother often mentions of the Northwest warrior rider chief and about their head of the clan named Mu Cang. Mother was full of praise for her. Su Family never asked them to look at the status of their friends, it is not like younger auntie of Su family, she has to marry father’s youngest brother no matter what just to steal the surname.
“I care whether you are a noble daughter or a pirate, we hit it off well and I liked being sworn to you. I am the person you are sworn with, why you are over thinking so much? “
Su Su stared at Sang Nuan with a sweeping look, very earnest and loving. Sang Nuan surprisingly cannot think of words to refute her, “You… …”
Sang Nuan tried to shirks continually and Su Su was starting to be annoyed, ” You are so womanishly fussy? Vowing or not vowing? Say something.”
Sang Nuan this moment was biting her lip until she gradually tasted blood in her mouth. When she finally firmly made a decision, “ Will vow!” Now she was ready for any sacrifice, Su Su was like a light to her life and she wanted to seize this light.
Su Su was overjoyed, lit six incense and handed three to Sang Nuan, with their body facing towards the door, bend their knees and swore before the burning incense.
“I, Su Su, today swear and bond with Sang Nuan as my sister, from this day and onward, for good times and bad times we will be sisters, if I violate this oath, let God in the heaven bring me my punishment!”
“I, Sang Nuan, today swear and bond with Su Su, from now on and forever, for good times and bad times, we will be sisters, if I violate this oath, let God in the heaven bring my punishment !”
After they vowed their way, they rose and smiled at each other. Su Su grabbed Sang Nuan’s hand and said gleefully, “ Very good. Ah Nuan is now my sister, no one can bully you!” Sang Nuan also firmly grab Su Su’s hands and firmly shaking it gently and softly making a pledge, “ Su Su I will never let anyone bully you.” Su Su smiled and nodded. Sang Nuan suddenly clearly said to tease, bending slightly towards her, softly whispered, “Oh, also cousin too. I will not let him bully you.”
” Ah?” Who?

Volume II Chapter 59 Strange Tomb Part 1
Su Su was still thinking and wanted to ask a question that was bothering her heart but she suddenly heard a light sound. The stone platform under their feet vibrated unexpectedly. Mo Yuan quickly held her tightly as the stone they were standing on quaked violently. She felt that it was sinking and the two became anxious and immediately drew back few steps .
The ground stopped vibrating and the cave restored back to its normal
tranquility. The group now can see that the stone platform right in the middle of the cave sunk less than one ten feet deep revealing a hole. A borrowed light from the mouth of the cave above head , there were some weak light shining down .
Although the cave light was very weak that one can barely see, it was clear for a person that there was truly that dark and foreboding hole that opened. It was pitch black inside that cave and a person cannot see the surroundings that even the hand that reached out seemed to disappear from blackness**.
The cave was similar to a beast with a big mouth opened waiting for its prey, waiting for someone willing to sacrifice their lives to death.
**Shēn shǒu bù jiàn wǔ zhǐ (idiom used to described this meaning hand or fingers that reached out disappeared or seemed to be missing
Su Su was staring at that black hole, wondering in her heart if she must go,when she haven’t made any decision, the man opposite them darted inside the hole and in a blink vanished in the darkness.
Is that Tantai Ye Lie? He rushed in the dark cave unexpectedly. Su Su
remembered, she did not tamper anything heedlessly a moment ago. Mo Yuan was just beside her and they were talking, she was sure they did not touched anything, however the ground suddenly shook? She thought that it could be Tantai Ye Lie’s and his actions was sort of unusual. She could recognized thathis understanding of this tomb pit was much clearer than them, moreover shehad a notion that he was there for this tomb pit.
Su Su clenched her teeth and decided to follow behind him however her wrist immediately felt tight. Mo Yuan caught her and pulled her back. Su Su whispered, “My red copper scale fan was with Tantai Ye Lie, I want to take it back. Moreover if we stay here, I could not go out. I have to find another way to exit also, obviously Tantai Ye Lei is after this tomb pit, don’t you want to know what he has on his mind?”
The two people listening were silent, but then he took her to the cave entrance. She was being led by the hand in which she was not accustomed, she was not led by hand by anyone before. She wanted to be able to move freely however this person firmly clasped her hand more tightly and the deep voice sounded cautiously, “ This is very dangerous, hold tight unto me.”
Su Su wanted to tell him that holding her was more dangerous, if they encounter unexpected situation, their hands were not free to play. She does not understand why Mo Yuan was holding her hand and refuses to let go.
His hand had wound and she felt that his palm was getting wet. She feared that the wound would open again. Su Su her protest complaints was simply kept in her heart and she just let Mo Yuan lead her by the hand.
The two went down the black hole, she can feel from her steps that place was going down the slope. Under their feet was pitch darkness and their surroundings were too black, she cannot see anything in this absolute darkness causing her heart to fear. The surroundings was also very quiet, as if she was the only person in the world, all she can hear was her own heartbeat and sound of her footsteps. Su Su was walking for awhile then suddenly paused her pace.
“Mo Yuan ? Mo Yuan !” Su Su called him twice. Her surroundings was deathly still. What was going on? Mo Yuan obviously pulled her hand to walk just now and in split second, the person around her was gone? The martial arts skill of Mo Yuan was very high and it was impossible that the person was abducted silently.
Su Su thought that standing in her place was not a good option, then she cautiously continued to proceed, little by little. the darkness faded and was replaced by a white mist appearing in a middle of a dense forest.
The place looked very familiar. Also, why was she here? What was she doing a moment ago? Su Su wanted to remember but her head was murky. She seemed to have no recollection of what happened.
“This child, where did you go all day. Mischievous girl have you been running around wildly everywhere and you did not allow people to be free from worry?”In the forest, a 30-year-old woman came out. She was wearing black vigorous attire and her hair was not like a common young married woman. It was not arranged into a chignon or bun, but was tied with a hair lace. She had thin stature and whole person was very tall and stood straight. She was passing free and carefree energy.
It was a face that Su Su was very familiar with, it had two extremely pale scars but it did not destroy her perfect loveliness, instead made her seemed to have that unique kind of beauty. At this moment, her face had supple happy expression and for Su Su that was somewhat unusual. “
Su Su thought, isn’t this place exactly resembled the Su Family training field and behind that forest was Mount Hou? Did she stealthily went to Mount Hou again to play?
At this time the woman arrived in front of Su Su, gently said , “Come now, go home with mother.”
“Mother?” Su Su was startled, how mother got here was that to call her home to eat a meal?
Su Su stared at her mother’s face. She was smiling gently. She was
dumbfounded because mother actually rarely smiled like this. The woman came to her with a pained and worried expression, asked, ”What’s wrong? Are you tired?”
Su Su innocently shook her head, in her mind that the mother in front of her was not only tender, but also warm-hearted and laughing,” I’m not tired. ” She replied.
“Let us go then, return to grandmother and she will cook delicious and tasty food for you.” With that the woman moved one step held her hand gently and with smile said, “Come, let’s go.”
Those hands were warm and gentle, the strength seemed to contain
inexhaustible love. Su Su’s body actually become stiff all over and closely looking at the person before her. Su Su fiercely breaks free from her hold, retrocede few steps, said, “You … …Who are you?”
The female smiled, on her face showed she was little hurt, “I am your mother, my silly daughter, come, come to mother . I will protect you.”
Su Su’s heart was trembling, in a chilly voice said, “You are not my mother.”
The woman frowned, the gentle voice said, “Didn’t you just say something that’s nonsense? Come quickly.”
This time, Su Su’s face thoroughly turned aloof, looked indifferent to the woman who kept on proclaiming she was ‘mother’ with an awe-inspiring tone, resolute and firm,” You are not my mother.”
After saying these words, the woman before her slowly and unexpectedly faded, finally she vanished completely and her surrounding scene immediately became heavily depressing . She went back to that darkness, slowly, Su Su thought she can feel someone was around her probably because her arm was very sore. She can feel that the person in front was firmly holding her arm, closed in his body.
At present also it was no longer a complete darkness because she saw a pair of profound paper mulberry eyes with a faint trace of fear and anxiety looking at her.
Su Su breathed deeply and sigh, relieved and showed a faint smile.
“Was that so called fantasy land? The Mohist knowledge and practices were really vicious.”
She heard his uncle mentioned it before. The so-called illusion where ghost or phantom appears but it was actually born from the heart. It somehow originates from fear of the person’s heart. *. Going through it was sort of strange and unusual also she suspected that this encounter was coming out from her own heart’s innermost desires.
Since Su Su was the only daughter in the house, she almost obtained everything she wanted. She had the favor and loved of all people, to the point of being spoiled. From almost everyone, except for one person, her very own mother.
Growing up, she does not understand why mother was always tough and strict to her while aunts from younger uncles were soft and gentle with words. Their never ending tolerance she had not received from mother. If she did right in any anything, mother will also praise her with few words. However if she did something wrong, mother will also relentlessly put her right each time!
That was why her greatest desire was for at least once, just once… for mother to pet her.
Surprisingly in the fantasy land her childhood dream came true.
Regrettably, this mother in the fantasy land was not her mother. Her mother rarely lead her by the hand. She remembered that she was lead by mother her whole life only once. It was during training when she was only eleven. She went to follow behind her mother during training in the mountain. As a result she was too careless and almost fell off the mountain. Mother threw herself over right away, grabbed her hand and pulled her. In that incident, mother never scolded her, but held her hand tightly until they reached home. Also mother’s hand was
different from other aunts because her grip was not soft, her clutch was tight and she always felt little sore. Even then, mother was someone who’s presence even though she almost fell to her death, she did not feel frightened.
In her memory, mother did not say that she will always protect her although mother always reminded her that when she encountered trouble or difficulty she was to remain calm and must depend on her own. But every time she was in danger, mother was not far by her side. In her memories, that unique person was mother.
Mo Yuan cannot understand this woman in front of him. He did not know if she saw any illusion or phantom but she was able to come out quickly from the fantasy land. Moreover after coming out, she did not appear restless or scared, actually she has a faint proud smile in her mouth.
Su Su took a deep breath, broke slightly away from Mo Yuan’s hand and said, “Let’s continue to go. “
Mo Yuan stood motionless and in a cold voice, “ Do you know what will happen if you did not wake up?”
Su Su was silent for a moment and replied with smile, ” Forever will not wake up. “
Mo Yuan was irritated in his heart. She knew it was dangerous and risky to go ahead but still she was determined to proceed? Does this woman know what fear is?
Mo Yuan was motionless. Su Su bypassed him and proceeded to walk. Perhaps, if not for that illusion, Su Su will not find the courage to walk again a moment ago. Now, she wanted to search for the secret, because of mother she must go.
Fleeing without taking chance, take off without a fight? How can it be!
Su Su’s entire being was fully alert and she proceeded step by step.
After a while, she felt the breathing of person behind him, smile faintly and asks,” Did you to see Tan Tai Ye Lie?”
“No.”The voice of Mo Yuan was indifferent, low and deep, this time he did not hold her by the hand but in tandem walked forward.
After walking a half stick of incense, they saw a light ahead. The light was soft and gentle not like candles.
They glance at each other, walked discretely and quietly. The light was
emanating from a stone chamber. Two people were very cautious and did not rush to approach it.
Su Su was squinting and looking if she could see anything inside. She gasp a breath of cold air. This was a big stone chamber and at the middle was a moonstone like a size of a fist giving out that soft green circular light. That circular midpoint has no coffin but actually a shítái, its stone bed in a platform, lying above the stone was a woman. She was wearing a black clothing.
