Back then, she had rejected Qiuqiu. As Feng Chen had explained, the reason she had responded so quickly was because she was essentially talking to herself, not to Qiuqiu.
The words “no one is to come out and help me” had been the true reflection of her feelings at that moment.
She had believed she didn’t need anyone’s assistance. Even if she were on her own, she could handle everything.
“Qiaoqiao, you’re no longer alone.” Yang Xirong reached out to fix her hair, a trace of affection in her eyes. “In honor of your birthday today, I’ll let this beating slide. But if it happens again, I won’t hesitate to do the same to you!”
Qi Xuanxuan, who stood nearby, couldn’t contain herself any longer. She rushed forward, embracing her tightly and playfully punching her on the shoulder. “Qiaoqiao, no matter what the future holds, remember that I’ll always be by your side.”
“Happy sixteenth birthday.”
Qiao Mu was taken aback. She had completely forgotten that today was her birthday.
No wonder when she left the Imperial Academy, MO Lian had repeatedly reminded her to return today.
She turned her head to glance at him, finding him gazing at her calmly. There appeared to be no emotion in his eyes, yet he somehow made the young girl feel a bit uneasy.
This was indeed an unforgettable birthday celebration.
In the afternoon, they had been pursued relentlessly. It had not been easy to eliminate their pursuers. Upon their return to the academy, she was still somewhat shaken.
Despite the lingering fear in her heart, she felt a newfound happiness.
Reclaiming what she had lost had left her feeling a bit disoriented.
She began to think that after spending time among others, she no longer wanted to return to the cold fortress surrounded by towering walls.
MO Lian remained largely silent. He simply stood by her side, offering silent companionship as she distributed pastries and partook of a portion herself. The commotion persisted until late at night when everyone finally retired to their rooms to rest.
The young girl felt quite unsettled and apprehensive.
Observing that the others had departed, she feigned weariness and yawned. “I-I’m heading to bed as well.”
She proceeded toward her side room, but as she entered the corridor, she collided with a man with a thud.
“What are you doing!” The young emperor couldn’t help but break free.
I’ve tolerated your silent presence all night! You’ve been trailing me with a stoic countenance, not uttering a word. Was she now going to be the one wearing the stoic expression?
Oh dear, how could she even dare to call herself stoic?
Qiao Mu shifted her small steps to the side, anger evident in her voice. “Today is my birthday. What exactly are you up to?”
She hadn’t even settled the score with him for collaborating with so many others to frighten her earlier!
And now, he dared to provoke the little Emperor. He clearly had no desire to be treated well.
“I’m not done yet.”
Qiao Mu was befuddled, struggling to keep up with his unpredictable train of thought.
“What, what do you mean you’re not done yet?”
MO Lian seized her small hand and promptly pulled her into the side room. With a slam, he shut the door behind them.
What was she to do if she couldn’t decipher his intentions?
The young stoic felt rather anxious.
Why did it seem like MO Lian was acting so mysteriously today?
She couldn’t help but feel a tinge of regret.
She also knew that what Venerable Peach Blossom Immortal said made sense. When she was surrounded and killed, all she could think of was how to counterattack.
She had never thought of relying on someone else’s strength to counterattack..
