Chapter 697: Checking identity

Hearing that Ye Mo would be going back with her, Mu Xiaoyun got worried. She quickly waved her hand, "Mo dear, you don't need to go back. It's hard to find a job like that, so I'll just come to visit you. You can stay here, and I'll go back myself. I'll come visit you later."

Looking at Mu Xiaoyun's expression, Ye Mo got confused. So did she really think he was her husband? At that moment, the waiter brought the food over.

He was just using her anyways, and besides, she seemed like a decent person, so Ye Mo would give her some wealth before he left.

He might not have any coins, but he had a few hundred tonnes of gold.

Mu Xiaoyun's eyes opened wide when she looked at the table of food. Ye Mo knew that she must be very hungry, so he picked up some chopsticks and said, "Let's dig in, we can talk as we eat."

Mu Xiaoyun didn't pick up her chopsticks but said after staring for a long time, "Mo dear, isn't this table of food worth a lot of money? Are we being too wasteful?"

Ye Mo didn't expect her to be thinking about that now and coughed, "Um, I've earned quite some money these years, so don't worry, eat all you like."

Seeing that Ye Mo really didn't mind, Mu Xiaoyun carefully picked up her chopsticks and started eating.

At first, the dinner was very quiet. Ye Mo didn't know what Mu Xiaoyun's plans were, and he didn't want to expose himself by talking too much, so he rarely spoke. Mu Xiaoyun didn't speak at all. She would wait after Ye Mo ate every dish before eating it herself. She seemed very tense and nervous.

Ye Mo was soon full. Although Mu Xiaoyun ate quite well too, there were many leftovers.

As Ye Mo scanned his spirit sense out, he noticed there were more and more soldiers. Many people wanting to go out of town were stopped. It was obvious he would have no way of going out today.

"Let's go." Ye Mo stood up. He wanted to take Mu Xiaoyun back to the Yu estate.

Mu Xiaoyun looked at the leftovers and hesitated for a long time before asking, "Should we take back the leftovers?"

Ye Mo thought, 'If Mu Xiaoyun were really just using me, she wouldn't ask about such a thing. She would just find an opportunity to run.'

Suddenly, the doors opened, and another man in Yu estate manager clothing appeared at the door. He saw Ye Mo and Mu Xiaoyun and breathed easy, "Mo Ying, luckily you're here, I've been looking for you. Young Miss wants to see you, but she couldn't find you."

Ye Mo just wanted to go to the Yu estate anyway, so he quickly said, "Oh, then I'll go back immediately. I just ate here. You can pay for the food first, I'll be going ahead. Xiaoyun lets go."

Then, Ye Mo pulled Mu Xiaoyun out before the man could react. When he realized what was going on, the man saw the waiter waiting for him to pay.



"Mo dear, why don't I wait for you outside?" Mu Xiaoyun saw the grandiose looking Yu estate and didn't dare go in with Ye Mo.

So Ye Mo pulled her, "Let's go in together, it's dangerous outside now."

Mu Xiaoyun didn't say anything and followed behind Ye Mo carefully.

"Mo Ying, where did you go? Didn't I tell you not to walk around everywhere. The Young Miss took you in to do things for her, not for you to wander around freely!" a servant berated.

Mu Xiaoyun shivered from this.

Ye Mo looked coldly at him and said, "Piss off. I was hired by the Young Miss with a high price. If you dare talk anymore sh*t, I'll kick you out of here."

The servant didn't know Ye Mo yet, so he didn't dare speak anymore. After a while, he said, "The Young Miss told you to go to the guest hall. With that, I've passed the message."

Then the servant quickly turned and left.

Ye Mo's spirit sense scanned into the hall and saw two men wearing official clothing in the middle of recording something. That Young Miss Yu was also inside. Ye Mo immediately understood that they were checking identities.

Thinking about this, Ye Mo pulled Mu Xiaoyun and said, "Xiaoyun, let's go."

Seeing Ye Mo bring back a woman, the Young Miss frowned but soon returned to normal. She looked at Ye Mo and said, "Mo Ying, these two officials have some questions to ask you. You need to answer honestly."

When Ye Mo saw the red-clothed man, he knew he was in danger. The man had earth level peak power. It would be very hard for Ye Mo to escape now if he blew his cover."

The red-clothed man asked Ye Mo, "What's your name? Where do you come from? What do you do?"

"My original name is Mo Yousheng, and due to a disaster in my hometown, I fled to Huang Ping Village three years ago. However, because there was nothing to eat in the house, I changed my name to Mo Ying and went out to do business. Just as I came back, I was robbed by bandits. Soon after, I was saved by Young Miss Yu on the road, and so I have become a servant of the Yu estate now. I lost my money and face too, so I was too ashamed to go back to see my family. I didn't expect my wife to come find me here in Ci Xi Town." Ye Mo's reply was simple but didn't have any real content.

Before the red-clothed man could say anything, Young Miss Yu added, "I met Mo Ying at Hang Shui half a year ago, his business was going well, but- Sigh-"

Ye Mo didn't know why this woman helped him, and he didn't know where Hang Shui was either, but he wasn't going to point that out.

Mu Xiaoyun was confused. She was sure Ye Mo must have lied at least once, but she wouldn't blow his cover no matter what.

"Oh, what's your wife called?" the red-clothed man asked expressionlessly.

"Mu Xiaoyun," Ye Mo replied.

"Search 'Mu Xiaoyun', and get me a drawing of Mu Xiaoyun and Mo Yousheng," the red-clothed man ordered.

"Yes!" The man on the side went out and carried back many stacks of books.

Ye Mo was shook. How was he going to pretend he was Mo Yousheng now? There were paintings of them!

Ye Mo thought rapidly. What if they found out he wasn't Mo Yousheng? It was impossible to fly away, but if he couldn't do that, that earth level peak would be quite heavy for him to take on.

If he was lucky, he would maybe manage to run out of the town, but what then? The identity system here was clearly strict. Even if he left the town, where would he go? Deep in the woods? Even if he did, it would probably be hard for him to escape.

If that really happened, he could only run and leave Mu Xiaoyun behind.

It didn't take long for the book and their paintings to be found.

The red-clothed man looked at the painting and nodded, "Put it away."

Ye Mo was shook because his spirit sense had picked up that the man on the painting looked around 80% like him.

If his face wasn't so ruined, perhaps it would be easy to tell he wasn't Mo Yousheng, but with the injuries the differences were destroyed.

No wonder Mu Xiaoyun thought he was her husband!

Ye Mo heaved a sigh of relief, and he received a white card indicating that he had been checked.

Young Miss Yu glanced at Ye Mo and Mu Xiaoyun and said plainly, "Go down to rest. I will see you tomorrow."

A maid took Mu Xiaoyun to shower. Although Mu Xiaoyun said she didn't want to go, Ye Mo felt that she actually did.

When she came back, Ye Mo found that Mu Xiaoyun was actually prettier than that Young Miss Yu! With her tattered clothes and dirt covering her face, Ye Mo hadn't given her too much attention, but when she was washed clean, although her hands were still coarse, her face was very pretty, and the chest she had constrained before now filled up her clothes like two fat rabbits.
