Chapter 303: The Sect Leader Wakes Up Grumpy Every Day (51)

Yun Niang smiled, her expression conveying, “I understand, I understand, I understand everything.”

All morning, Shen Mubai’s lips were stared at with ambiguous glances. When she thought of the culprit, she couldn’t help but secretly glare at Jun Jiuling.

Unexpectedly, the other party’s face looked even gloomier than hers, with those narrow eyes staring straight at her.

Shen Mubai, “…..”

What did she do wrong???

The few people on the right also seemed to sense that the sect master was in a bad mood today. Each of them was trembling with fear, afraid of accidentally touching his bad luck.

Wu Er was a very tragic example. Because he couldn’t resist eating a clove of garlic this morning, the sect master kicked him out with one swift kick.

The atmosphere inside the inn was too oppressive. Yun Niang, feeling helpless, could only find Shen Mubai: “Cuihua, go and placate the sect master.”

Shen Mubai felt it was inexplicable but still said, “The sect master is in a bad mood. It won’t help if I go.”

Yun Niang had already guessed the general course of events but couldn’t say it out loud, so she said, “The sect master will definitely listen to you.”

Shen Mubai, “Alright then.”

She knocked on the door.

“sect master?”

There was no response from inside the room.

Shen Mubai called a few more times, but there was still no response.

She looked back at Yun Niang helplessly and mouthed, “Third Hall Master, you see?”

Yun Niang pulled her over and whispered, “Try calling him something else.”

Shen Mubai’s expression tightened, hesitating for a moment.

Seeing this, Yun Niang said, “Cuihua, please do us this favor. If the sect master is in a bad mood, we’re all in trouble.”

Shen Mubai couldn’t resist and said, “Alright, I’ll try.”

She knocked on the door again, “Ah… Ling?”

She still felt a bit uncomfortable, perhaps because Jun Jiuling during the day had left an indelible impression on her, making her scalp tingle.

But in an instant, the door was opened from the inside, revealing Jun Jiuling’s extraordinarily handsome face. His narrow eyes were deep, and he stared straight at her and said, “Call again.”

Shen Mubai forced herself to call again, “Ah Ling.”

A slight curve appeared at the corner of his lips. Then Shen Mubai was lifted up by Jun Jiuling.

Startled, she looked at Yun Niang for help.

Yun Niang pretended not to see, smiling as she said, “I just remembered something. I’ll take my leave now.”

Jun Jiuling nodded, turned around, and closed the door.

Shen Mubai, tense and stiff, stayed motionless in his arms.

Jun Jiuling placed her on the bed, lowered his eyes to look at her, and said, “Stay with me for a while.”

Then Shen Mubai was tightly held in his arms, his chin resting in the crook of her neck, and he closed his eyes, not moving.

Only then did Shen Mubai’s tense body relax.

She felt his warm breath on her skin, making her cheeks heat up. But she didn’t dare move. After a while, sleepiness overcame her, and she went off to meet the Sandman.

When she woke up, the two had changed positions. She was half lying in his arms, and the large hand on her waist was impossible to ignore.

At that moment, a knock sounded on the door, accompanied by Zuo Yi’s cold voice: “Young Master, Madam, it’s time to get up. The food is ready for you.”
