Clearly not realizing that he was making mountains out of molehills, he patted Gu Mingye on his shoulder and said, “I’ll leave it to you.”
“Boss, are you being serious?”
He stopped in his tracks and turned around with a smirk. “Do you think I’m joking?”
Gu Mingye shook his head solemnly and said, “No, I just think you look really handsome when you’re being serious.”
Mu Xichen nodded in pleasure and said, “You’re not too bad yourself.”
Gu Mingye began to feel a little embarrassed after receiving the compliment. He chuckled and asked, “Boss, where did that woman kiss?”
Mu Xichen raised his brows to think for a moment before answering slowly, “The lock of my soul.”
Gu Mingye was bewildered as he watched him leave.
He had heard of the windows to one’s soul, but he had no idea what the lock of the soul was!
Li Beinian finally escaped the damned maze-like corridor and arrived in the guest area of the Mu Family Mansion where she was staying at.
Li Beinian had a daunting hypothesis in her head that she had to desperately verify!
She had found her way to the guest room based purely on her memories. The door was unlocked and hence, Li Beinian knocked on it uncertainly.
There was no response.
Li Beinian opened the door and entered. As soon as she did, she was greeted with the sight of cosmetics, clothes and bags… these were all gifts that her stepmother and Li Xueqing had given to her out of hypocrisy.
Li Beinian’s heart pounded rapidly and she locked the door before dashing towards the bathroom.
Li Beinian’s face was reflected clearly in the bathroom mirror.
She was no longer as frail, sickly, pale and haggard-looking as she was during her pregnancy.
She was beautiful, exquisite, youthful and puerile.
Her skin was exceptionally fair and she exuded a healthy, rosy glow
There was still some baby fat in her cheeks and she looked extremely puerile. She was practically just a young girl.
Li Beinian stared at her reflection in disbelief, after which she removed her robe and unbuttoned the shirt inside. She then turned around.
There should be a long scar on the left side of my waist.
She had been scarred after being cut by a dagger while she was trying to rescue Mu Donglin three years ago.
The wound almost killed her!
It was also the reason Mu Donglin decided to marry her, even though they treated each other politely and like acquaintances throughout the three years of their marriage.
However, the skin on her back was now fair and tender, and the scar was nowhere in sight.
It was as if it never existed…
Her heart pounded rapidly.
All of a sudden, she screamed in disbelief.
She had really… come back to life!
She had returned to the time when she was 19 years old and when everything had just started!
Her tongue was not cut off and she did not… marry Mu Donglin.
She was still the hooligan who used to hang out in the suburbs, not the wealthy heiress whom everyone was looking forward to seeing live better.
She gently caressed her face and burst into laughter.
Lin Kerou, Mu Donglin and… Li Xueqing!
I will make you pay for everything you owe me!
The doorbell rang and miscellaneous voices could be heard.
Li Beinian immediately changed into a fresh set of clothes.
The sound of the doorbell was deafening and the voices seemed to be getting louder too.
She hid the bathrobe and the mysterious damp clothing inside the closet before placing a towel on her neck to make it seem like she had just showered.
The person outside began banging the door forcefully while yelling, “Li Beinian, come out!”
