” He tapped the baggage with his fingertips: “There is a veil in there.
Remember to wear it when you go out so that you can walk easily”. Walking was secondary.
The most important fact was to keep her appearance hidden.


Just now, he had suddenly changed his mind.

This woman, irrespective of her origin, stayed put in the cellar.
She was stubborn to a hilt and nothing could be pried open from her mouth1.
It seemed better to take the opportunity of the martial law in the city and observe her reaction along the way.
Who knew, perhaps he would find out something interesting.

If she really had other companions, then….


Leng Yiyao held her forehead with her hand and stared at the man with a fixed look.

Has this person had enough? Doesn’t he have things to do every day? He doesn’t worry about other matters but comes here to bother her,  does he want to have a fight?

As far as she knew, except for the nobles, most people in this city did not have the privilege to roam leisurely at will.


“Okay!” If you don’t want to go, don’t go!.

She shook off her baggage, opened it, and sure enough, there was a set of the most inconspicuous black robes and a veil inside.

“Look, there is no fitting room here, how about you leave?” She blinked at him with an expression of -“If you’re tactful enough, please leave immediately.”

The man’s eyebrows trembled, and an inexplicable sense of powerlessness suddenly appeared in his heart.
Obviously he was the master, so why was he being kicked out of his own house by the girl?

However, this tone, he endured it!

When he turned around to leave, she helped him close the door of the room quite considerably, to show no disrespect!

Leng Yiyao took care of herself very quickly.
Tending to her wounds and changing her clothes, she simply combed her hair and covered more than half of her face with a veil, only revealing a pair of deep and quiet eyes.
She bent down and pulled the knife the man had hidden in the depths of the cellar at some point.
Placing it under her black robes, she then knocked on the door casually to signal that she was ready.

When the two walked out of the cellar facing the sun, she discovered that the city was far beyond her expectations!



Original- Dead duck has a hard mouth, cannot be opened by prying(Chinese Proverb meaning:-person is stubborn to a hilt)
