Along the way, Li Xiao’s face was dark. It was only when they were about to leave the main road that he finally spoke.
Til go to the capital with you.11
Lin Xiaoyue was shocked.
“No!” She immediately refused.
Seeing her husband frown, Lin Xiaoyue spoke again. “It wasn’t easy for you to escape from that troublesome place. What’s the point of going back?’1
“What if someone recognizes your face? At that time, not only will you be in danger, but our family, including the soldiers, will all be in danger.”
For the past six months, although Li Xiao had been using the scar removal cream she gave him to make the hideous scar fade, when he did not cover it up, the scar was still very obvious.
Li Xiao frowned.
TH disguise myself as your guard.” He said.
It would indeed be very eye-catching to travel together as wife and husband.
However, if he was a guard, they would not attract so much attention.
“The situation in the capital is complicated. If I don’t go, 1 won’t be at ease.” Seeing that Lin Xiaoyue wanted to refuse, Li Xiao added.
“Also, I want to see if there’s a chance to save my sister while I’m in the capital.”
Lin Xiaoyue was stunned.
“There has been no news from Pince Anyang for a long time. Perhaps we can only rely on ourselves.” Li Xiao said in a deep voice.
Lin Xiaoyue was silent.
Li Xiao suddenly grabbed Lin Xiaoyue’s hand.
“Let me go with you. Otherwise, 1 would have secretly followed you.”
Lin Xiaoyue sighed, a hint of helplessness flashing in her eyes.
“Alright then. However, you have to listen to me.” She finally said.
If she were in Li Xiao’s shoes, she would not be able to wait in Qingshi Town alone if she were to exchange identities with Li Xiao and the person who was ordered to enter the capital was Li Xiao.
Back then, when they went to the border to do such a dangerous thing, Li Xiao had brought her along.
This time, she couldn’t leave her husband behind.
“Yes!” Li Xiao smiled and nodded.
Lin Xiaoyue held Li Xiao’s big hand tightly.
“We ll face the mountain of blades and the sea of flames together as husband and wife.11
“Good! ” Li Xiao reached out and pulled Lin Xiaoyue into his arms.
The two terrified hearts became steady again.
Back at the Liu residence.
Lin Xiaoyue asked someone to call Zhou Shi over.
Just as he finished arranging the chili workshop, Head Fang arrived.
After sending Zhou Shi away, Lin Xiaoyue talked to Head Fang about the follow-up arrangements.
“My husband wants to follow me to the capital. After we leave, the matters of the manor and the workshops will be handed over to you.” Lin Xiaoyue said.
Head Fang immediately looked at Li Xiao.
Seeing that Li Xiao was expressionless, Head Fang bowed and accepted the order.
Lin Xiaoyue also glanced at Li Xiao.
Then, she looked at Head Fang.
“For this trip, let Fan Teng and Shanshan come to the capital with us. As for
Xiao Yang, my husband has other arrangements.’1
“Also, after we leave, try to keep a low profile. If…” Lin Xiaoyue paused.
“Prepare the evacuation plan in advance. If we don’t come back, protect my mother.”
This trip to the capital was extremely dangerous.
Time was too tight, and many things could not be arranged properly.
If they encountered danger in the capital and their identities were exposed, the people of Qingshi Town would be in danger.
The incident happened so suddenly that they had to leave tomorrow.
She could only entrust the matters at home to Head Fang.
Head Fang’s expression was solemn.
“Yes!” He bowed and accepted the order.
After that, Li Xiao also gave Head Fang some instructions before letting him leave.
After Head Fang left, Fan Teng and Zhao Shanshan were able to see Lin Xiaoyue and Li Xiao.
Lin Xiaoyue explained the situation. After the two of them listened to her instructions, they went down to pack their luggage.
“Let’s go see mother.” After the two of them left, Lin Xiaoyue got up from her chair.
He didn’t know how long he would be gone for this trip. He had to appease his mother.
“Yes.” Li Xiao replied.
The backyard of the Liu residence.
Liu Shi listened to Lin Xiaoyue’s words and wiped her tears.
“How did such a big matter fall on a little girl like you?”
“You’re leaving tomorrow? Why are you in such a hurry?”
As Liu Shi spoke, she was about to get up from the chair.
“No, I have to go with you!”
Lin Xiaoyue quickly stepped forward and pressed Liu Shi back into the chair.
“Mother!” She called out coquettishly and grabbed Liu Shi’s arm.
“I was only summoned to the capital to help the Imperial Court. After finishing my business, I’ll come back. It’ll be fine.”
“Besides, Li Xiao will come with me. With him around, who can bully me?” As she spoke, Lin Xiaoyue looked at Li Xiao.
Li Xiao hurriedly nodded at Liu Shi.
“Mother, don’t worry. With me around, nothing will happen to Yue’er! ”
Liu Shi’s expression became a little better.
“But…” However, she was still a little worried.
The capital was not a peaceful place.
Back then, she had escaped from that place…
Thinking of the past, Liu Shi’s eyes flashed with fear, and then she quickly stopped thinking.
Lin Xiaoyue did not notice..
