Mu Wanrou forcibly elbowed him once and emotionlessly cautioned, "Let me warn you; don't get too touchy with me when we are outside, lest others see us!"
"I know." Aaron took half a step back and reluctantly maintained a distance from her. He leaned against the wall and glanced at her back in silence – he was still satisfied with this!
Meanwhile, she sent a glare at him; she thought that her biggest mistake was getting involved with this man!
He was unlikely to leave her alone.
She wanted a clean breakup with him, but if she were to do so, she knew he would spill her secrets; thus, she unwillingly retained her relationship with him.
She would take a step at a time.
When the time was right, she would then eliminate him to avoid future problems!
She studied herself in the mirror again. Although the face being reflected wore a thick layer of makeup, it could hardly conceal her haggardness.
Her mind was slightly unhinged these past few days, so she was unable to have a good rest. Plagued by nightmares, she tossed and turned in her sleep.
She kept having an ominous foreboding!
Her face showed terrifying anger at the thought of this.
She could not fathom how they failed to handle a mere six-year-old.
He was only a child of six with meager strength in his arms… yet they still failed to assassinate him! What was more horrifying was that her hired killer had gone missing without a trace!
At first, she was worried of her plan being uncovered, but even after a few days, it remained unreported. Her uneasiness did not abate though.
Having failed this time, she could only conjure up another plan. She was simply afraid of alerting others with this failure; moreover, it would be much more difficult to lay her lands on Yun Shishi next time.
She had a reason for being desperate to eliminate that mother-child pair.
Old Mu's health was deteriorating by the day. Thus, he was all the more frantic to find those with Mu's bloodline living outside.
Yun Tianyou mattered not to her.
He was a mere child, and he was still immature; how much of a threat could he pose to her?
She was wholly blasé about him.
Alas, he had great rapport with Yun Shishi. If he were to return, the latter would be able to stir stuff up with the Mu family, right?
If that were to happen, even the smallest action could reveal her identity; she would then be completely done for.
As such, she must eradicate those two thorns in her flesh before Grandpa Mu could do anything!
Looking at herself in the mirror, she went ahead to apply her lip tint and evenly spread the color out before she returned it to her bag. Her face suddenly grimaced, and bending over the vanity table, she painfully retched.
Aaron's face sank. He immediately went forward and aided her by holding her arm. "What's the matter?" he nervously asked.
"Nothing…" She tried pushing him away, but before she could continue, she gagged again.
She constantly felt queasy, but nothing came out as vomit; she just inexplicably retched in extreme discomfort.
When she tried to push him away, he felt defeated, but seeing her start to heave anew, he hesitantly went ahead to support her again.
She did not push him back this time; perhaps it was due to her being unable to keep her balance.
He noted her repeatedly surging back and furrowed his brows. "Is your gastritis acting up again?"
"Probably!" She raised her eyes to look at the mirror; she looked terrible.
"I'll go buy some medicine for you!"
"No need." She leaned her feeble body against him and massaged her chest. "I'm feeling much better now. It must be due to me not eating breakfast, so…"
