“Hm?” Mu Rulan stood still, smiling at him. “Yiyang, what are you trying to do?”
“You killed someone?!” Lan Yiyang’s words were rushed, disbelief clear in his tone.
“Is knowing this so terrible for you?” Mu Rulan blinked slowly, movements still leisurely as usual. She didn’t even look like a criminal who had been caught red-handed.
For Lan Yiyang, it wasn’t hard for him to accept the fact that someone was killed. But to learn the killer was Mu Rulan, how could he accept that? It wasn’t possible! Translated by The Novelst
The woman he’d seen as an angel had kidnapped someone and broken all his limbs. Even further, there was a corpse hanging from her wardrobe, and she smiled the entire time, like… she hadn’t done any wrong at all!
It was just like the way Jin Biaohu described her – a psycho! These kinds of acts were only things that a psycho would do.
“Release him…” Lan Yiyang’s gaze sharpened slowly. “Release him or else I’ll call the police!”
He couldn’t let her kill someone so simply. How could her hands be stained by blood?
“Release him?” Mu Rulan tilted her head a little like she was thinking through a difficult puzzle. “Yiyang wants me to release him? Hmm. That’s going to be difficult after all. I’ve been waiting eagerly to make my human puppet today for a long time ya.”
“Shut up! Don’t say these kinds of things!” Lan Yiyang breathed heavily.
“Yiyang, you’re going against me for the sake of this guy?” A hint of sadness flashed through her expression. “I’ll be very sad if you do, Yiyang.”
“This is all your fault!” Tears could be seen in his eyes, which were becoming bloodshot. “Do you think I want to do this? But look at yourself right now. How can you kill someone? That’s against the law and you’re going to become a murderer! Do you want to rot in jail? I’m trying to help you!”
“Are you sure you would be helping me? Yiyang, do you know that if this man survives this ordeal in my house, what he’ll do to me? He’s going to report to the police and throw me into the mental hospital.
“He might even act like Aunt Li Yan, bribing the people in the hospital to have fellow mentally ill patients rape me, force me to get pregnant, then force me to abort it. And who knows in the end if he’ll turn me into a puppet doll?” Mu Rulan asked.
She smiled as she saw the ugly expression on Lan Yiyang’s face. “Do you want to see this happen?”
“Mmmm..!” Jin Biaohu struggled to let out a whimper as he glared widely at Lan Yiyang to express his sincerity. He definitely wouldn’t do what Mu Rulan had said just now. He had a worse method in mind!
“…I’ll protect you!” Lan Yiyang said, gazing becoming firm as he gazed at Jin Biaohu.
He definitely wouldn’t allow Mu Rulan to kill someone. And for what she had said… there must be another way to solve it that didn’t involve the death of another person.
Mu Rulan smiled deeply. “Yiyang, how are you going to protect me?”
That instant, Lan Yiyang’s expression froze. That was right. What could he do? After all, he had nothing, nothing…
“Do you want to leave? Or do you want to stand there and observe my human puppet art?” Mu Rulan picked up a nail and hammer.
“Must… you do this?”
Her natural response came without even a lift of her head: “Look inside the wardrobe. Killing someone is something I’ve done quite a lot already. I can’t return anymore, ya. Yiyang, it’s either that you call the police or act like you have seen nothing. Hurry and return home.”
Lan Yiyang was very agitated, his mind completely blank. He was so angry at her natural attitude that he shouted loudly, “I will call the police. I’m going to call the police before you make such a huge mistake!”
After he finished shouting, Lan Yiyang turned to go downstairs. He rushed out of the house and the phone nearly broke from his tight grip around it.
“What a kind person, ya,” chuckled Mu Rulan softly before hammering a nail into his hand before Jin Biaohu could even process why Lan Yiyang had walked away from such a situation.
Sweat poured down his face as his eyes widened comically, a strangled whimper of pain making its way out of his mouth.
“You want to leave?” Mu Rulan put down the hammer and pulled softly at the thread connected to the nail in his hand.
After confirming the connection was firm, she smiled in satisfaction. “That makes me so sad. I’ve already put so much effort into you. Can’t you see my hard work? What do you have such a scary face on for? I will be gentle ya, compared to you guys who just kidnap some kids and toy with them mercilessly, don’t you think I’m much better? That’s thanks to how kind I am ya.”
Lan Yiyang walked out of the house with large steps. Something broke in him and he threw his phone angrily onto the ground.
“Shit!” He shouted in anger then crouched on the ground, both hands in his hair.
Damn it… Damn it! There was no way for him to do anything at all!
He couldn’t call the police. Then what could he do?
On one hand he didn’t’ want to see Mu Rulan stain her hands with blood, but on the other he was powerless in this situation.
What to do… Translated by The Novelst
What to do?
Lan Yiyang fisted his hair tightly before a thought flashed through his mind, hope beginning to light up his eyes.
That was right. He was too worked up just now and had ignored a few things. How could Mu Rulan be a psycho who killed someone without even blinking? If that was the case, why would she let him go so easily after he had discovered her secrets?
Wasn’t she afraid he would truly call the police? Wouldn’t she be scared and want to kill him off to prevent him from saying anything?
He got up and walked back to the house.
Mu Rulan was preparing to wake Jin Biaohu up since he had passed out again. She paused as she noticed Lan Yiyang come back.
She raised her brows a little and continued her work. “Why have you returned?”
