Lord Chu’s Wife is Wild - Chapter 402 - No One There
Chapter 402: No One There
A gust of cold wind blew at the entrance of the alley. The Invisibility Talismans in Lu Sheng’s hand were almost blown away by the wind. Thankfully, she reacted in time and immediately held the talismans tightly.
She coughed lightly and explained, “It’s not that I don’t want to call you by your name, but it’s difficult to change my habit.”
She had called him ‘Lord’ a few times, so she could not change her habit instantly.
Chu Sihan sighed softly.
It was already an improvement that she was no longer using honorifics.
“As long as we have each other in our hearts, any form of address is not important.”
Lu Sheng mumbled softly. She thought that Chu Sihan could not hear her. Unexpectedly, his eyes lit up and his thin lips curved upwards.
Lu Sheng passed the Invisibility Talisman to him again.
Chu Sihan did not hesitate this time. He reached out to receive it and pasted it on himself.
When the duo climbed over the wall and entered Cheng Mansion, they realized that the courtyard was silent.
“Mother, where did Father go? Why are you in such a hurry?”
Suddenly, a child’s voice was heard.
Lu Sheng and Chu Sihan looked at each other and walked towards the voice.
They realized that a mother-son pair was sitting in the courtyard. The mother was embroidering and the son was sitting at the side. He tilted his head and seemed to be in a bad mood.
A servant stood behind them. She was smiling at the mother’s embroidery.
Upon closer inspection, that son was the mute who opened the door last night.
So, he had been pretending last night.
“Your father has something to do. We’ll wait for him at home.”
The mother passed the needle and thread to the servant. She patted her son’s head and explained with a smile.
“Didn’t Father say that it’s dangerous recently and we can’t go out casually? Hao Er also has to pretend to be mute when he sees strangers?”
The child’s small face was filled with confusion.
“Your father is an adult. It’s alright for adults to go out. You’re a child. What if you encounter human traffickers and they capture you and sell you away? What should we do?”
The woman was not very beautiful, but she had a kind face. When she smiled, one would inexplicably feel close to her.
“Mdm, Old Master seemed to have left something in the room.”
The servant who had just returned the needle and thread walked out with a basket.
The woman reached for the basket and opened it. There was a bottle of wine, a stack of buns, five apples, a pair of candles, and a stack of paper money inside.
“How could he have forgotten about these?”
The woman sighed softly and covered the white cloth back. “He should be back soon.”
Just as she finished speaking, someone knocked on the door.
“What did I say?” The woman smiled faintly. “Xiao Ying, open the door.”
Xiao Ying agreed with a smile and strode to open the door.
However, it was empty outside the door. A gust of cold wind suddenly blew in.
Xiao Ying’s heart skipped a beat, and a hint of fear could be seen in her eyes.
She carefully stuck her head out and realized that both sides of the alley were empty. There was no one there.
Remembering what happened next door, she hurriedly locked the door.
“Where’s Old Master?”
Seeing her return alone, the woman was a bit puzzled.
“Mdm, there’s no one outside!”
When Xiao Ying spoke, her voice trembled.
When the woman heard this, she smiled faintly. “It must be some child’s prank. Let’s wait a while more.”
Lu Sheng and Chu Sihan looked at each other. Both of them looked behind Xiao Ying.
However, they realized that there was a ‘person’ standing behind her. Judging from his face, he was none other than Cheng Hai, who had died yesterday.
