You Must Pity Me chapter 5

Chapter 5

Five

Honestly, Mo Yun didn’t want to have anything to do with the General’s Manor. However, Shen Yue had to seek their help. Hence, she went.

Unexpectedly, Madame Jian suddenly asked her out of the blue: The red mark on your arm was there from birth, right?

Mo Yun’s expression instantly sunk. She finally realized that the clothes she had wound around herself tightly had already lost its function to conceal her arm.

Jian Mengdie and her were twins born of the same mother. Their outward appearances were exact replicas of each other and even their nanny was unable to discern who was older and who was younger. However, Mo Yun had a red birthmark on her arm, while Jian Mengdie did not.

When she saw the expression on Mo Yun’s face, Madame Jian instantly knew that she had recognized the correct person. The young lady standing before her was her other daughter, the one who had disappeared many years back. She wanted to embrace Mo Yun, but the sword ‘Fugitive’ was suddenly unsheathed. Mo Yun pointed it towards her chest coldly as she said, “What are you all planning to do?”

Madame Jian replied in tears: At that time, we all thought that you had died. Since you were still alive, why didn’t you return? I heard others say that you were Shen Yue’s shadow guard. I specially requested His Highness for your nameplate. I could only confirm my guess after I saw the characters of your birth date. Why have you fallen into such a state?

Mo Yun sneered coldly: Why should I return? In any case, all of you wanted to send me away. I would rather choose to be a shadow guard as opposed to being thrown away by you time and time again.

But you should have let us known that you were still safe. We are your family.

Master is my only family, but he is already dead! Mo Yun suddenly fell apart. You only knew how to blame me for not coming back. As a shadow guard, I had lost all qualifications to meet my family again! And every single one of you are under the General. If you had the intentions to listen out for my news, you would definitely be able to find out that I didn’t die! All of you were the first to give up on me!

None of you have ever tried tiding through winter wearing paper-thin clothes. Fainting away due to the bitter cold, before struggling to stay awake; did you know that sixteen children slaughtered each other cruelly on the mountain every day? A friend of today would be the person who killed you tomorrow! Did you know why I gave up my family name ‘Jian’ and took on my Master’s name ‘Mo’? I had enough of the ‘familial love’ you speak of. Your daughter has already died on the day you sent her away! Whether she died under the hands of the wandering bandits or whether she died due to your 18 years of indifference, there is no disparity between the two!

Mo Yun took a deep breath. When she saw Madame Jian’s pale face, she felt hatefully liberated.

She was Mo Yun, a shadow guard who pointed her sword at the heavens. She wanted to prove that she could live well without the concern of anyone else!

Mo Yun turned around and walked out: I don’t want to be your daughter. I’ll just be a shadow guard. If you still have any familial affections towards me, please don’t tell anyone about my birth.

Otherwise, would you still be able to serve as the shadow guard of His Highness? I can tell that you gaze at His Highness Shen Yue differently. Madame Jian uttered softly behind her back. This morning, your Father and His Highness discussed the matter about establishing Mengdie as his Princess Consort. It seems as though His Highness does not reject the idea.

Mo Yun suddenly froze. She wanted to congratulate her, and she wanted to maintain her callous expression. However, her throat was stuck, and she couldn’t voice it out no matter what.

Madame Jian was hopeful as she asked: I know your father wants to use this marriage to become in-laws with His Highness and win him over. But if you’re unwilling, I can go and speak to your father. Will you be able to forgive your mother then?

Just like a clap of thunder, Mo Yun straightened her body abruptly. Without thinking, she retaliated: Unless you die!

Something seemed to have flashed by beyond the windows. Mo Yun instantly snapped out of her stupor. She had been too overwhelmed with emotions and had actually failed to maintain her usual vigilance!

But it was too late! She only had time to turn her head back. Right before her eyes, she watched as that silver needle pierced through the window, before burying itself into Madame Jian’s forehead.

Mo Yun watched this in a daze. She watched as she slowly slumped onto the ground, before landing onto the floor boards with a thump. Before she died, she had even glanced at her with a pleading expression.

She had always assumed her heart was already dead. Yet, she never knew that it could hurt so much.

Mo Yun broke into a smile like a maniac. She wanted to say, ‘even if you die I won’t forgive you.” But in actuality, she pushed open the door like a mad woman and locked onto the silhouette that had fled at lightning speed. With a wave of her hand, a secret weapon was tossed out. That person appeared to have been struck by her. His figure stumbled before he disappeared beyond the wall of the General’s Manor. Mo Yun clenched her teeth and charged in that direction. But when she finally left the gates, she finally realized that she had fallen into a trap.

Downstairs, Shen Yue and Jian Mengdie, who had been taking a romantic night walk, were currently staring suspiciously at Mo Yun whose body was shrouded in murderous intent.

A meddlesome servant glanced at the west building behind Mo Yun. She noticed the shadow of the corpse behind the muslin curtains and let off an ear-piercing scream. And Mo Yun watched as Shen Yue’s expression slowly changed from shock to disgust. He said, Mo Yun, I never expected that you would do such a thing.

Her sword left her hands and fell onto the ground. Mo Yun stood frozen in place. In that instant, she felt as though she had fallen into the darkest abyss.

Alas, everything she ever desired in her life was far out of her reach; and the person she loved the most was the same person who inflicted the most pain.

Ever since she was young, Mo Yun was tenacious.When other girls fell, they would cry and wail in pain. Only she would press her lips tightly together, plastering on an obstinate expression instead. She would never attempt to gain pity or affection from others.Even when her Master told her about the 8 sufferings in life: birth, aging, sickness and death, parting with the ones you love, meeting with the one you hate, unattained aims, and all the ills of the five skandhas. Everything was supposedly predestined, nothing could be forced. Even so, Mo Yun would lift her head up stubbornly and sneer: Parting with the ones you love and unattained aims? It merely applies to those who have no guts.Even if it can’t be forced, I will force it!Not long after she said this, Mo Yun met Shen Yue.Shen Yue was just like the biggest joke the heavens played on her, as a reminder to Mo Yun that in this world, there were things that she could not obtain by force.
