Chapter 185: Congratulations, You Guessed Right
This screech immediately attracts the attention of everyone inside the shop.
At the other table, Muyan finally notices this sharp and invasive voice behind them, comparable to the buzzing of mosquitoes. Is it scolding her and Xiao Bao?
Tsk tsk… are they actually seen as beggars?
Then again, the clothes on their body at this moment is very wretched.
A smile that isn’t a smile begins to rise on Muyan’s face, she turns towards the source of that voice.
But when the woman’s appearance enters her eyes, she can’t help but raise her eyebrows.
It’s really a small world a!
She didn’t expect, that she just casually takes her baby out for a meal and she would come across an acquaintance.
Shen Xiaoru, the darling daughter of her adoptive parents.
In the past, Muyan was at the Shen Family and the oppression that she received from this high and mighty Miss wasn’t light.
Back when she was schemed against and lost her innocence, conceiving Xiao Bao, it was also inextricably linked to this woman and her mother.
Shen Xiaoru meets Muyan’s eyes that are as resplendent as the stars, and she can’t help but stare blankly. She didn’t expect that this filthy beggar would actually have such a beautiful pair of eyes.
Not only that, these eyes are very similar to that woman that she loathed back then.
This makes Shen Xiaoru’s attitude even nastier, “What are you looking at? Still not hurrying to go out and leave? Is this a place where filthy trash like you could go to? Really shameless, you’re probably here to cadge a meal, right? Shopkeeper, why are you still stalling, still not beating these people out for me!”
This arrogant and despotic manner is seen by the surrounding diners, and they shake their heads a few times.
Even Gao Chenyu can’t bear it and says: “Shen Xiaoru, exercise some restraint.”
On the other hand, Bai Yichen has a calm and composed expression throughout the whole thing. However, his inquisitive gaze can’t help but inspect Muyan and Xiao Bao.
“Restrain what?” Shen Xiaoru angrily says, “Did I say anything wrong? These two bums sitting beside us, wouldn’t they affect our appetite? What’s to be done if Yichen-brother becomes too unhappy to eat?”
“Shen Xiaoru, you’re really… despotic and selfish, just as in the past.” they hear a sigh, along with a light chuckle.
Shen Xiaoru is stumped.
She whips her head to look at Muyan, and with cloudy and unsure expression, “You… how do you know my name? Who are you?”
Wait wait, this woman’s eyes, her voice as well, they’re very familiar!
Almost exactly the same as that loathsome woman in her memories.
Shen Xiaoru’s pupils suddenly contract, she shrieks: “Jun Muyan… you are Jun Muyan?!”
Muyan chuckles: “Congratulations, you guessed right!”
Shen Xiaoru harshly glares at her: “How can you be here? Didn’t you… didn’t you die along with my aunt and the others?”
Five years ago, they received news about the Su Family.
The Su Family’s small courtyard in the nameless valley burned down overnight. There were a number of burnt corpses inside, their true identities are already unrecognizable.
Finally, they were identified from some spider’s thread and horse track*. Among the those that were burnt to death were her aunt, male cousin, sister-in-law, female cousin, and Jun Muyan.
- tiny hints
So how could that Jun Muyan appear in this place, when she should have died five years ago?
Neither fast nor slow, Muyan says: “Apparently, you were really hoping that I would be dead. I really let you down.”
Shen Xiaoru has a cloudy and unsure expression.
She shifts her gaze and it suddenly falls on Xiao Bao.
She stares blankly at first, then snaps her eyes wide open. She seems to suddenly remember something, and shouts: “When you got pregnant without marriage back then, is this the little bastard that you had with that wild man?!”
Muyan’s gaze suddenly darkens, there’s a chill in her eyes, a haze.
Shen Xiaoru sees her face and thinks that her words have finally hit the other’s sore spot, so her overcast complexion immediately turns sunny.
