Chapter 64: Only When She Was Strong Enough Could She Be Fearless
By the time shed passed the fifth sentry post, Yun Xi was already halfway up the mountain.
Her shoulders and back ached from a couple of the punches that shed received.
A lot of her stamina and energy had been exhausted, and she felt on the verge of collapse.
Realizing how far shed come, she thought that if she could fend off the remaining sentry posts, she would practically be a superwoman!
Plus, then she would probably have to climb all the rest of the way to reach the top of the mountain.
She couldnt help but lament to herself about how eccentric Mu Feichi was, that he had to live somewhere so high up and make climbing up the mountain so difficult.
Much later on, after she had moved into the Mu Mansion as the wife of the Mu family heir, she had realized the difference between living on the top of the mountain and living at the foot of the mountain.
Living on the top of a mountain was not only a matter of reaching the horizon, but also a symbol of prestige and status.
Especially since those who had once scorned and rejected her could only stand at the foot of the mountain and look up at her, since they were not qualified to take one step further.
She sat down cross-legged and rested on the side of the road as she stared at the huge modern Chinese-style mansion, which she could see through the trees sitting on the top of the mountain.
The mountains terrain was complex, and the Panshan Highway circled around the mountain up to the top.
Along the way, shed gotten a sense of the terrain.
It was indeed a place easy to defend, but difficult to attack.
Moreover, several places shed passed through on the way clearly had sentries, but no one had come out to stop her.
There were definitely more sentry posts on the mountain than she had thought.
No wonder no one dared to venture into these mountains.
Once you entered, there would be little to no chance of exiting.
As she sat lost in her thoughts, a dark green off-road vehicle drove down the mountain and came to a stop in front of her.
She looked up at the man stepping out of the drivers seat.
The blinding lights of the vehicle made her squint.
The sun had come out, and the bright sunlight illuminated the entire peaceful mountain.
All the dazzling lights accentuated his sharp features.
His striking facial contours exuded a vibe of regal dominance.
The man in front of her was tall, well-proportioned, and his long legs were straight and slender.
The sleeves of his dark green shirt were rolled up to his elbows, revealing his slender arms.
Yun Xi couldnt help but stare.
This man really was the living embodiment of a sex-drive pill.
His masculine appeal was overwhelming.
It was no wonder that the last centurys gossipy media outlets always loved any scandals about Mu Feichi, Chinas Young Marshal Mu.
“Get up! Ill drive you the rest of the way.” He bent down and extended his hand toward her.
Yun Xi stared without expression at the muscular arm extended toward her.
For some reason, she hesitated.
On this quiet mountain road, he seemed like a legendary prince who had come riding on a white horse to lead his princess home.
But she dared not think too much of it in such a starry-eyed manner.
Rubbing the corners of her mouth, she sighed.
“Young Marshal Mu, you cheated and let me win on purpose.
Were you worried that I wouldnt make it up there, or were you afraid that your wish wouldnt be carried out”
Mu Feichi curled his lips, his eyes remained impassive.
“What do you think”
“The latter.” She raised her eyebrows and her eyes wandered up to his face.
“For a person like you, being rejected would be taboo.
Someone so prideful couldnt accept rejection.”
Mu Feichi smiled.
His long, narrow dark eyes made Yun Xi feel a bit off for some reason.
“Little rascal, when you get to my position, you will understand that only when youre strong enough will people fear you.
That way, you can do anything without second thoughts, and, moreover, you dont have to care about what other people think.
Yun Xi was struck with a realization when she discovered what he truly meant, and for some reason her heart started beating wildly.
Yes! This was the high point that shed wanted to reach, the true meaning of her rebirth.
She was going to become stronger, so strong that no one could jeopardize her standing!
Only when she was strong enough could she be fearless!
