“Father, I’m back.”
Under the anxious waiting of the old man, a middle-aged voice came from outside. When he looked out, he saw Xiao Tian Yu and Madam Sheng Yue side by side, walking over to him.
Moreover, Madam Sheng Yue was holding onto the hand of a remarkably beautiful young girl.
This young girl’s appearance was similar to Madam Sheng Yue so he didn’t need an introduction to know who she was…
“Tian Er, Yu Er, you’re finally back.” The old man was elated and hastily went forward. His gaze examined Mu Ru Yue from top to bottom a couple of times, sizing her up.
Mu Ru Yue felt a little uncomfortable with him sizing her up, and goosebumps appeared all over her body.
“Erm…” The old man rubbed his fist and chuckled, asking, “This should be my granddaughter?”
Madam Sheng Yue smiled as she pulled on Mu Ru Yue’s hand and led her toward the old man. “Yue Er, this is your grandfather.”
Mu Ru Yue raised her head to look at the old man upon hearing this.
This old man with a wide smile looked really affable, but traces of light flashed past his eyes occasionally. With a glance, she knew that this old man was a schemer.
She’d thought that the old man of the Xiao family would be a strict old man. She hadn’t expected that he would be like this.
Mu Ru Yue blinked her eyes before calling him, “Grandfather.”
“Yes,” replied the old man immediately. He raised a callused hand to rub Mu Ru Yue’s head. “Such an obedient child. Tian Er, when are you going to let her proclaim her ancestry? Some of those obstinate fools will most likely give you trouble at that time, especially Xiao Yin. Recently, his granddaughter was crippled by someone outside, so he will use that reason to create trouble.”
Xiao Tian Yu smiled coldly. “After that period of time when our couple cleaned up the family, some of the old men had settled down a great deal. If they dare to say anything, don’t blame me for not remembering old affections!”
A trace of sinister killing intent flashed past Xiao Tian Yu’s eyes.
If they dared to create trouble, he didn’t mind killing a few to set an example!
“Father.” Madam Sheng Yue smiled and clung onto the old man’s arm. “The person who crippled Xiao Min when she was outside was your granddaughter’s fiance.”
“Eh?” The old man was startled as he turned his gaze toward Madam Sheng Yue. He blinked his eyes in confusion and queried, “What do you mean?”
What had Xiao Min done in the outside world that would enrage others again? How was it now related to his granddaughter’s fiance?
“Father, you should understand Xiao Min’s personality. She has always looked down upon everyone. She previously took a fancy to Yue Er’s fiance and harassed him. But that man was devoted to only Mu Ru Yue and didn’t look at her. She then challenged Yue Er to a fight and even used the Xiao family’s forbidden technique, yet was still defeated by Yue Er. Following that, Yue Er’s fiance rushed toward them and, after seeing that bitch Xiao Min hurting Yue Er, he crippled her dantian due to his rage. Yet, do you know what that obstinate fool, Xiao Yin, said at that time?
“He said that Xiao Min was an innocent and weak girl that had been provoked by Yue Er. He also said that since Yue Er’s fiance crippled Xiao Min, it was similar to being the enemy of our Xiao family and the entire Sheng Domain.”
There was a great uproar going around because of this matter. After Madam Sheng Yue had met up with Mu Ru Yue and done a simple investigation, she clearly understood everything.
She couldn’t help but break out in a cold sweat when thinking of Mu Ru Yue and that day and couldn’t wait to break Xiao Min into countless pieces.
She was just a branch disciple of the Xiao family while Yue Er was their main branch young mistress. It was impossible for Xiao Min to be comparable to Mu Ru Yue.
It was laughable that she had actually said Yue Er was just an ordinary girl and wasn’t worthy of that man.
