Hao Mu Wang Tian: Chapter 4

When Mu Ling ran back to the inn with Xiao Hei, it was already late afternoon, with the sun setting in the west. His heart was unsettled, but his stomach groaned. Mu Ling hadn't eaten yet.

After securing Xiao Hei back at the stable, Mu Ling remained on the ground floor of the inn and ordered a table of delicious food and wine to comfort himself. With one leg up on the chair, a bottle of wine in one hand, and chicken drumsticks in another, his mouth covered in oil, Mu Ling appeared more like a cross between a scholar and a ruffian. No one dared to sit at the table next to his. Qin Wangtian had gone out and returned. What he saw was Mu Ling eating and drinking on the ground floor.

Shaking his head, Qin Wangtian pretended not to know him and turned towards the stairs, but his presence was noticed by Mu Ling. While shoving the chicken thigh into his mouth, he called out, "Oh...have you eaten?"

Qin Wangtian pretended not to hear him and went straight upstairs, returned to their room, and closed the door.

Mu Ling pouted because he wanted to invite Qin Wangtian to eat with him. After a lot of battles today, Mu Ling was finally full. He wiped his oily hands with a kerchief, took a toothpick for picking his teeth, and went to the second floor. By the way, he also brought along a bottle of good wine and a roasted chicken, as an evening snack.

Pushing the door open, Mu Ling saw Qin Wangtian wiping his saber. The blade appeared old -- black body, beautiful shape -- and possessed a powerful aura. However, the weapon was not comparable to Situ's Hei Jinhou.

Mu Ling strolled to the bedside, placed the roast chicken and wine on the side table, and went to sleep.

Qin Wangtian looked at him in disbelief. "What are you doing?"

Mu Ling blinked. "Taking a nap."

Qin Wangtian couldn't help rolling his eyes. "You slept until noon in the morning, and you’re going to sleep after your meal. Are you really a pig?"

Mu Ling gripped the quilt with his legs and rolled and wrapped himself in the quilt, raised his eyebrows, and said, "Drop dead."

"Ha..." Qin Wangtian gasped reactively, with the tip of the blade, he cracked the tile's floor.

Mu Ling rolled again and vaguely said, "Every year is safe."

Qin Wangtian was completely speechless.

However, Mu Ling was awakened after barely an hour of rest by Yue Qiuling’s return. She said that she had gone back to Yuejia Zhai the past few days, but their elder brother refused to interfere with the affairs of the Villa, hence why she had arrived alone. Yue Qiuling could only ask Qin Wangtian and Mu Ling to accompany her.

Qin Wangtian contemplated before saying, "You should go back first. We will join the attendees for the ceremony later. Moreover, if you want to examine the body, we can’t do it formally, better to approach this quietly."

Mu Ling saw that Qin Wangtian’s response was reasonable and immediately nodded, adding, "It makes sense."

"The thing is..." Yue Qiuling seemed a little embarrassed and said, "I have sent someone to inform the second brother just now, saying that I am here, and about the situation with the bandits on the road, but fortunately we were saved by the two of you."

"Huh?" Mu Ling was surprised. "Miss Yue, you are too honest."

Yue Qiuling also felt that she had spoken too early, so she said, "My brother also said, he wants to pick me up in person, and thank you. What should I do?"

"What?!" Mu Ling turned over and sat up. "That’s easy to solve!" After saying that, he jumped out of bed and started to pack up. “Run away quickly!"

Qin Wangtian grabbed him. "Why are you panicking?!"

Mu Ling glared back. "What I fear most is etiquette socializing. I'm not doing this anymore. I'm going back to Heiyun Fortress!"

Qin Wangtian tried to stop Mu Ling from struggling and escaping. "You can’t leave!"

"Why not?!” Mu Ling rushed towards the door. "I'm leaving!"

"If you dare leave, I'll tell the world you haven't cured my injury after ten years of treatment. You are a quack!" Qin Wangtian pulled his last move.

His words were like a painful stab, which made Mu Ling struggle internally. Suddenly he saw Yue Qiuling kneel down before him. She pleaded, "Mister Mu, I beg you, come back to Yuejia Zhai with me and check my father’s body…” She kowtowed to Mu Ling while bursting into tears.

Mu Ling was in further agony. What he was afraid of the most was girls crying. At that moment, there was a noise from downstairs, and he hea
