The two horses went out of the city of Pei. Gu Yun decided to insist once more, “Su Ling. Although you and I wanted to return to the capital, but we have different aims. It is better if we go our own way.”
Just thinking to be with him during this journey made her hairs stand. She thought Su Ling was also reluctant. However, everyone in the army was joining force so he didn’t say anything.
Su Ling’s mood which had been pretty good dropped below 0 degrees. His chilling arrogant voice and attitude really made people uncomfortable. “You are my General manor’s people. Who allows you to have freedom of action?”
What did he mean by that? Did he mean she was their house pet? Ridiculous! As she said before, how could she be calm when she was with Su Ling, this type of man? Was general manor really that great? There would be a day when she would leave that general manor!
Now, I will just tolerate you!
Su Ling thought she would keep arguing with him because he clearly saw anger in her eyes. However, Gu Yun didn’t say anything, coldly turning the horse and continue to gallop forward.
Su Ling frowned, he really couldn’t understand women’s thought and behavior, especially hers.
“Is he gone?”
Above the tree, a green figure turned around. Her face which always looked indifferent showed a touch of surprise and disappointment. Her tone was also a bit hasty.
“Yes.” Although he was usually hot-blooded, he was not stupid. He could easily see that the leader looked at the man called Su Ling differently. Yan Ge replied truthfully, “At Ya hour (3-5pm), he departed with that savage woman.”
“Only those two?” The woman’s heart felt inexplicably lonely. He was really gone. The next time they meet would that be another 5 years? Or 10 years? She indifferently turned her back, the woman laughed at herself, between her and him, they couldn’t be even called enemies anymore.
“En, others were still in the campsite. Leader, Su Ling has gone. Could we go and rescue Wu Ji?” Su Ling was not in the army anymore, so they shouldn’t need too much thinking, right?
“Cannot.” When she once again spoke, there was not the slightest melancholy in her voice. She indifferently said, “The Su Family Army camp is heavily guarded, we can’t afford to act rashly. The main aim of this expedition was the gold, they would definitely put more guards to ensure its safety. People who escorted Wu Ji should be less than those of the gold. We need to wait until they reach the canyon in the outer area of Pei City before we start the mission.”
She was this forest’s guardian and also the tribe’s leader. In this lifetime, she was destined to never leave here. If that was the case, it would be better if they didn’t meet again.
