TDCM Chapter 273: The Male Lead Doesn’t Have Any Ambition

At this thought, Yuan Chu suddenly shivered and revealed a scared expression.

What should she do? Little Yuan Yuan is so black bellied and profound, as his master……will she be able to keep him under control in the future?!

If she accidentally did something that offended him and they had a falling out, will she be sold off?!

Yuan Chu became even more afraid the more she thought about it, totally not realising that she’d been brought out of the eastern palace by Ye Chenyuan. When they came to a secluded trail that was shaded by trees, Ye Chenyuan suddenly turned around and pressed Yuan Chu against the tree trunk.

“W-What’s wrong?!”

Yuan Chu was wide-eyed as she looked at the handsome face that was inches away from her and her heart sped up. Was it possible that Little Yuan Yuan could mindread and had heard her thoughts?!


Ye Chenyuan pressed his right thumb against Yuan Chu’s soft lips. His phoenix eyes that were slightly raised swept across the path they’d just taken and his lips curled up as he said to her in a low voice.

“Master, there’s someone chasing behind us. It’s my guess that it’s someone from the Gu family. To guard against their evil designs in wanting me to be their family’s son-in-law, you’ll have to cooperate with me for a while.”

Yuan Chu’s back was pressed up against the tree trunk as she looked at him with a questioning gaze, how should she cooperate?

Ye Chenyuan’s pretty eyes slowly landed on her face. When the clatter of the horse’s hoofs drew closer, he lowered his head and kissed Yuan Chu’s lips with his own thumb between their lips.

It wasn’t that he didn’t want to kiss her directly, but he’d already decided to confess his feelings to her after coming out from the divine sword mystic realm. So, it was a critical period right now and he didn’t want to scare her, so he could only kiss her with a hindering thumb between them.

Yuan Chu’s eyes were wide open.

Even with a thumb between them, there was still a portion of her lips that touched his. Moreover, he was cupping her face with one hand while the other was around her waist as he directly pressed her against the tree trunk. No matter which angle one looked at it from, others will think that they were kissing!

She felt as if her heart was about to jump out of her chest…… Initially, Yuan Chu was going to push him away but he hadn’t done anything offensive and had only asked that she cooperate with him to put on a show. Moreover, the clatter of the horse’s hoofs was drawing closer so she controlled herself and didn’t move. It was then that she heard Ye Chenyuan say in a low and hoarse voice.

“Close your eyes.”

Yuan Chu immediately closed them. Both of them were breathing a little quickly, but Yuan Chu didn’t notice this because she was nervous……

It was indeed someone from the Gu family who had come after them. The Gu family head had beaten Ye Tianxu up before saying that the engagement was invalid, then leaving with his men.

It was only after leaving that he thought of Ye Chenyuan. Feeling that there must be more that Ye Chenyuan knew about, he had ridden a wind horse and led his men to chase after them from the eastern palace.

He didn’t think that he’d end up seeing Ye Chenyuan and Yuan Chu in the woods……


The Gu family head jumped off his horse and got the people behind him to stop. He then walked towards Ye Chenyuan alone as he let out a cough.

Ye Chenyuan was annoyed that these people had arrived so quickly, that he couldn’t continue to experience this happiness.

He looked at Yuan Chu who was inches away from him. It was obvious that she was feeling very nervous right now, her long lashes were quivering slightly and her fair skin had become a pale red, looking particularly delicious.

In the process of releasing her, he first took back his thumb, and there was half a second that their lips were fully touching.

Yuan Chu opened her eyes in surprise, only to see that Ye Chenyuan had already taken a step back and was speaking to the Gu family head.

“It’s you?”

He had stepped forward and fully blocked Yuan Chu behind himself, unwilling to let others see her delicate and pretty appearance. He then asked with a calm expression on his face.

“Why has the Gu family head come looking for me?”

The Gu family head also didn’t have the nerve to look in Yuan Chu’s direction. When he first found out that Ye Chenyuan had the Divine Emperor Bloodline, he had thought about letting his daughter marry him, but after seeing that Ye Chenyuan had such a good relationship with his wife, he could no longer bring himself to ask this, so he could only say.

“You’re Ye Chenyuan? You said that you have the Divine Emperor Bloodline, and you determined that Ye Tianxu was putting on a pretence because you didn’t sense the power of the bloodline from him. Is that correct?”

Ye Chenyuan nodded his head, “That’s correct.”

The Gu family head said, “Then, can you help me with something?”

His thick brows were tightly knitted, making him appear exhausted and still slightly angry.

“If possible, the Gu family would like for you to give a witness testimony. When his majesty comes out from seclusion, can you testify in front of him so that we can force Ye Tianxu to have his blood tested again……of course, we will reward you highly.”

When Ye Chenyuan heard this, he shook his head with a smile, “Gu family head, you’ve put the cart before the horse.”

“Why do you say so?”

Ye Chenyuan said, “I’ve heard that the imperial grandson is on close terms with the Zhao family. Moreover, the imperial grandson was still young when his blood was tested so how could he have purposely passed himself off as having the Divine Emperor Bloodline? The only possibility is that this was all the Zhao family’s idea. The Zhao family must’ve known about your daughter’s condition and deliberately did things like this to lure you to take the bait. For all these years, the Gu family probably gave the imperial grandson a lot of support, right?”

The Gu family head was starting to become very angry. He didn’t ponder over it too much, but after hearing Ye Chenyuan’s words, he became even angrier. However, he slowly calmed down……

Zhao family, it was actually the Zhao family! How did his Gu family offend them, that they actually treated his daughter like that, and schemed against him like that!

Ye Chenyuan said, “So right now, the one you have to deal with isn’t Ye Tianxu. He’s dispensable and there’s no need to fear him. As long as you remove the power behind him, he’ll fall without you having to do anything.”

The Gu family head narrowed his eyes at Ye Chenyuan’s gentle words.

“You’re right, I had put the cart before the horse……”

As he looked at the young man in front of him, he all the more thought that it was regrettable.

This Ye Chenyuan was young yet he was rather astute, being able to have a thorough understanding of the issue, and the current level of his cultivation served to show that he was very talented.

It’s a pity, it’s too bad! It’d be great if Ye Chenyuan wasn’t married yet. If the Gu family could have a live-in son-in-law like him, he could even hand over all the clan matters to him.

Ye Chenyuan knew what he was thinking by seeing the expression in his eyes. He grabbed Yuan Chu’s hand and held it up as he said with a smile.

“That’s all I have to say. I won’t step in. I’m the kind of person who isn’t very ambitious, I just want to be with my wife always, and give birth to two children. So, I ask that the Gu family head not come looking for me again, I’ll take my leave.”

Saying this, he led Yuan Chu away.

Yuan Chu looked at Ye Chenyuan, then she turned to look at all the Gu family members, suddenly feeling sympathy for them. Soon, these clans will have a fight to the death with the Zhao family.

Ye Chenyuan squeezed Yuan Chu’s hand, and the more he squeezed it, the more he felt an itch in his heart. He looked at Yuan Chu and asked with a smile in his eyes.

“Master, you’ve been absent-minded from the start. What are you thinking about?”

Hearing this, Yuan Chu couldn’t refrain from looking at Ye Chenyuan.

Just by standing along the long forest trail, Ye Chenyuan had become a scenic sight, and his smile also looked very harmless.

Yuan Chu gave it some thought before saying as her gaze fleeted about, “I wasn’t thinking about much, just that you’re very amazing……scheming against so many people at once……”

“So?” Ye Chenyuan was completely relaxed when in front of Yuan Chu and his voice was also livelier than before, just that Yuan Chu didn’t notice it.
