“Why?” Lan Yiyang’s chest heaved up and down.
“Hm?” Mu Rulan looked at him in confusion.
“Why must you kill them?” Lan Yiyang was eager to know the truth.
Once he had calmed down, he realized he had glossed over quite a few things. This girl’s kindness wasn’t fake and she could even sacrifice her life to save a strange child. If her kindness was fake, why would she let him leave so easily?
There must be some kind of reason for her treating Jin Biaohu like this.
Mu Rulan paused for just a moment and smiled, seeming to find this interesting. “You know, you’re just trying to find excuses for a criminal ya, Yiyang.”
“Tell me,” Lan Yiyang said, looking at her seriously. His eyes betrayed the yearning he had for an answer, even if he was just trying to deceive himself.
The smile on her face faded a little as she looked down to inject something into Jin Biaohu, a transparent liquid visible in the tube.
Her soft voice sounded as though from far away. “The reason, huh… it was probably because they affected my good sleep, causing me to have nightmares.” Translated by The Novelst
Yep, that was the reason. It definitely wasn’t because she was too kind and trying to enforce justice on behalf of heaven ya. They had unlocked the psychopathy in her that had long been brewing.
After the kidnapping, she heard the agonizing screams of those girls would echo in her dreams. Someone had stretched their hand out, begging for help, but all Mu Rulan could do was close her eyes and pretend not to hear.
“Don’t be like this, tell me!” Lan Yiyang was unwilling to accept her odd reason.
There had to be something else, anything that could help him accept the reason for her behavior.
Mu Rulan took out the needle and seeing Jin Biaohu begin to wake up, said, “If you need to hear a reason like executing the wishes of the heavens so there’s nothing wrong with me killing people… then fine, you better listen carefully.
“This gentleman here, since he was fifteen, has caused the death of thirteen people. This includes the times he’s orchestrated car accidents to cover up their disappearances. Most of them were girls aged thirteen to sixteen.
“Out of those thirteen, eight of them had their bodies destroyed. For five of them, he even went out and destroyed their families. So all in total the number of innocent people he’s caused to die come close to forty. The forces involved in helping him clean up his messes are the Jin Family and the underworld group that work with them: the Dark Dragon.
“I can’t get rid of the Dark Dragon and the Jin Family so I could only look for the culprit himself to torture and vent my anger. So is this reason enough for you?”
Lan Yiyang looked at Jin Biaohu in disbelief, nodding blankly. His gaze turned complicated as he turned back to Mu Rulan. “Why is it that so many people died and yet this person wasn’t arrested and was left to roam free?”
“This kind of thing, you haven’t understood yet?” Mu Rulan looked at him with a sidelong glance before continuing her work.
“If you’re satisfied with this explanation, can you leave and shut the door behind you? The things that you’ve seen today, just ignore it like you haven’t seen anything,” she said, shaking her head to big Lan Yiyang goodbye.
“I’ll help you,” he said, unable to just leave. He was willing to lower himself to become her accomplice.
“No can do ya. I don’t have any intention of involving an accomplice ya,” Mu Rulan said, rejecting his offer.
There were some things that a person could do alone without any pressure, but if you added another person to the mix, it wouldn’t feel the same. Even the fun would greatly decrease.
Mu Rulan was firm in her rejection, even if she was still smiling. Lan Yiyang walked out of the house in a daze.
He walked on the road to exit the Qinghe village area. The sun shone brightly and yet he couldn’t feel any warmth at all. He stared at the blue sky, feeling that the world he had known had turned upside down in just two short hours.
On Monday morning, Mu Rulan received Lan Yiyang’s school transfer request delivered to her desk by Chen Qing. By the time she received it, he had probably already boarded the plane and crossed the border to Australia, huh.
Mu Rulan looked at the application on her desk. After a while she smiled and signed the application with a flourish. Approved.
At the same school, during the same semester, there were two transfer students who had handed over their school transfer requests at nearly the same time. One of them was forced to stay, while the other had left even before receiving a response. Yet he was still allowed to leave.
After Zhou Yaya heard the news, she was immediately fired up. She didn’t bother with the general perception of her behavior and rushed immediately to the president’s office to confront Mu Rulan.
Bang! The door swung shut violently behind her as Zhou Yaya glared down her nose at Mu Rulan, who was seated behind her desk.
Mu Rulan smiled in welcome as though she had expected this.
“Mu Rulan!” Zhou Yaya was enraged to see the smile on her face.
“Good morning, Yaya Tongxue. It’s still class time now. Do you need something from me?”
How Zhou Yaya longed to tear that face apart!
She stomped towards the desk and with an unrestrained icy glare, she said, “What are you trying to do? Are you taking revenge on me?!”
“Yaya Tongxue, do you know what you’re saying right now?”
“Stop that acting of yours! We all know what kind of person you are!” Zhou Yaya couldn’t hold back and shouted, sweeping everything on the desk to the ground. Translated by The Novelst
Her chest heaved up and down, but her face was still as cold as ice: “You want to take revenge on me, right? You want to force me to stay at Liu Silan so that your fans can attack me, huh? If I don’t attend school, are you still going to force me to come?”
