Mu Ru Yue continued to lean lazily on Ye Wu Chen, a trace of listless expression on her face. She stretched her body before giving a false smile, “Let them in; I’m curious as to how shameless they will be.”
Li Lu was shocked at Mu Ru Yue before replying, “Yes, mistress.”
Upon saying that, he turned and left. After a short moment, the figure of a father and daughter entered their sight. Compared to Mu Qing, whose face was filled with schemes, Mu Yi Xue looked at Ye Wu Chen, her beautiful eyes consisting of intense affections.
He was actually the Ghost King, that previous fool.
She didn’t expect the Ghost King to look so handsome, yet acted as a fool to be able to live. How could any girl not fall for such an outstanding man?
Moreover, Mu Yi Xue had already fallen for Ye Wu Chen due to his outstanding looks.
When Mu Qing entered the Mu residence, he felt countless powerful auras pressuring him, causing his heart to shudder slightly. Yet, he just treated those auras as being from Ye Wu Chen’s subordinates.
No matter how hard he thought, he would never have imagined that those experts were part of the power Mu Ru Yue established—those from Massacre the Heavens Sect.
Li Lu had recruited more experts ever since she returned from the Pill Assembly. After being baptised by countless pills, the strength of those experts were constantly growing. Initially, those experts didn’t stay within the Mu residence, but after the commotion with Die Yi. They were summoned back by Mu Ru Yue and typically cultivated inside the Mu residence.
“Yue Er.” Mu Qing looked at the young girl that was sitting on Ye Wu Chen. He frowned with slight dissatisfaction as he viewed such an act as going against convention. Even if it were a wedded girl, they wouldn’t be allowed to sit on their husband’s lap.
But after thinking about his purpose for coming here, Mu Qing held back his disciplinary remarks. He forcefully put on a stiff smile. “Your father let Xue Er come here to accompany you as he thinks that you might be lonely staying here alone.”
It wasn’t a request, but an order. He directly spoke of his motives for coming here.
Mu Ru Yue sniggered as she glanced at Mu Qing with an ice-cold gaze. “Alone? Could it be that Ye Wu Chen isn’t human? That Li Lu isn’t human? That the others aren’t human?”
Mu Qing gave a couple dry laughs. “The Ghost King is your fiance so you won’t be able to see each other frequently. Li Lu has already recognised you as his mistress so his status is different. As such, I thought of letting your younger sister keep you company.”
“Status?” Mu Ru Yue chuckled. Her smile was ice-cold and filled with mockery. “It can’t be that the head of the Mu family thinks that her status is comparable with my current prestigious status, right?”
What Mu Ru Yue said was right. She was not only the Main Wife of the Ghost King, but was also the disciple of Grandmaster Wu Yu and a master of Ghost manor. Any of those identities would be incomparable to Mu Yi Xue.
Mu Yi Xue was currently clenching her fist in hatred as she glared with a jealousy filled gaze at Mu Ru Yue.
“Mu Er, are you thirsty?” Ye Wu Chen looked sinisterly at the father and daughter of the Mu family before him. When he shifted his gaze to Mu Ru Yue, a charming and gentle smile donned his divinely handsome face. “Do you want your husband to make some tea for you?”
“The ‘Big Red Packet’ that Elder Zhao previously brought over isn’t bad. But I don’t want it to be too concentrated as I don’t like my tea to have a very strong taste.” Mu Ru Yue nodded as she turned her head toward Ye Wu Chen to reply to him.
Ye Wu Chen gently smoothed her hair with a smiling intent in his eyes, a gaze that seemed to be able to drown a person with their tenderness.
Their actions completely lit up the flames of jealousy in Mu Yi Xue’s heart. She glared angrily at Mu Ru Yue. Her glare was like a knife that viciously cut toward Mu Ru Yue’s exceptional appearance.
