PSLMD Chapter 37


Chapter 37 – Who are you?

In the 21st century, Yan Xiaosi had eaten rice and dishes with both meat and vegetables in every meal; naturally, she wasn’t interested in plain white rice. The three Yan sisters rarely had plain rice all year round, so they weren’t interested in the crust either. People with different experiences had different pursuits. Seeing the three sisters shaking their heads like rattle drums, Yan Xiaosi took back his wooden bowl and continued eating with gusto.

After breakfast, Ms. Zhong and her daughters were going to the mountain to chop wood again.

Ms. Zhong washed the dishes and told Yan Shuyun, “Yun’er, you have an injury on your foot, so you don’t need to go to the mountain to chop wood today. Your older sisters and I will go.”

“Mom, what about me?”

Yan Xiaosi suddenly jumped to Ms. Zhong’s side.

Being the youngest in the family and spoiled, she felt guilty about being fed and supported without doing anything. However, she wouldn’t be able to chop wood even if she went up the mountain, and as for gathering herbs to sell, she needed to recover her strength first.

Ms. Zhong looked at her, “Xiaosi, you wouldn’t be much help on the mountain. Stay at home and take care of your third sister and Mr. Long.”

Considering Yan Xiaosi’s current condition, going to the mountain wouldn’t be much help, so she listened to Ms. Zhong and stayed at home to care for the two patients, letting Ms. Zhong, Yan Shuqin, and Yan Shuxue go to the mountain.

“Mom, elder sister, second sister, come back early.”

Yesterday, she had witnessed a group of men in black chasing after Long Hao, so she was worried about Ms. Zhong and her sisters staying on the mountain for too long.

“Once you cross the mountain, it’s the Rongdi’s territory. The Chu Kingdom and the Rongdi are currently preparing for battle. The situation is unstable. Try to stay on the outskirts of the mountain.”

At some point, Long Hao had appeared behind Yan Xiaosi.

Yan Xiaosi turned around to look at him. They faced each other. Long Hao was a head taller than her.

Her gaze wandered over Long Hao as if she had figured out who the assassins chasing him yesterday might have been.

“Thank you for the reminder, Mr. Long.”

After acknowledging Long Hao’s advice, Ms. Zhong left with Yan Shuqin and Yan Shuxue.

With the three of them gone, Yan Xiaosi followed Long Hao into the house.

“Were those black-clothed, masked people who tried to kill you yesterday Rongdi assassins? Who are you that the Rongdi would send so many assassins after you?”

Yan Xiaosi wasn’t concerned about Long Hao’s identity, but if his identity was too important and posed a threat to the Rongdi, then there would surely be more attempts on his life. If the Rongdi assassins found their way to Shaoyao Village, it would put Ms. Zhong, Yan Shuqin, Yan Shuxue, and Yan Shuyun in danger.

Her gaze was sharp as she looked at Long Hao, her eyes as piercing as an eagle’s.

Although Long Hao was a well-traveled and experienced person, he had never met a country child like her before.

“You guessed correctly. Those black-clothed, masked people who tried to kill me yesterday were indeed Rongdi assassins.”

Yan Xiaosi’s keenness impressed him.

Long Hao answered truthfully, and the sharpness in Yan Xiaosi’s eyes slightly subsided. “Who are you?”

“I am from the Chu army. As for my identity, I cannot tell you yet.”

Long Hao told Yan Xiaosi everything he could, “If you’re afraid of being implicated, I can leave now.”


Coming from a military background, she felt a sense of loyalty to Long Hao when he revealed he was a member of the Chu army.
