The elders were stunned. Nobody had expected that this young girl would inherit 100% of the Xiao family’s bloodline. This was unprecedented.
Once they saw the elated expression of Elder Xiao, everyone was mind-blown. They still weren’t able to come back to their senses from the shock…
“Little girl, please grow up quickly. Once you reach the Xiantian realm, you will then be able to acquire the inheritance of the ancestors of the Xiao family. Haha! I have held onto this inheritance for such a long time. It finally has a purpose. It was worth me living so many years for this inheritance.”
Elder Xiao’s heart was finally at ease when he was finally able to say that.
He already felt that his life would be ending soon. If he hadn’t had to help the Xiao family find an inheritor, he wouldn’t have forcefully persevered and lived on.
It was about time that he chased after that old fellow and continue to create a name in the otherworld.
Old Man Xiao could feel Elder Xiao’s death will. His heart tightened. He knew how much of his heart and blood Elder Xiao had put in to safekeep the Xiao family inheritance. He couldn’t help but sigh. “Elder Xiao, the Xiao family still needs you.”
Elder Xiao chuckled slightly. He could leave peacefully now that there was an inheritor within the Xiao family.
“Sheng Yue, I heard that you had planned to let this little girl train in the sacred spirit spring. Hehe! How about letting this old man help you out? It’s beneficial for her to increase her strength, so I plan to let her stay in the sacred spirit spring for half a year. It will be dependent on her own hard work how much improvement she is able to achieve in that half-year.”
Madam Sheng Yue’s heart turned sour. She had only been reunited with her daughter for such a short time, yet now they had to be separated for half a year? But she also understood Elder Xiao words and knew that in the end it was for her daughter’s benefit.
“Alright, I will pass a decree tablet to you shortly. With my decree tablet, it will make it easier for you to open the sacred spirit spring.” Madam Sheng Yue smiled gently. She gracefully stroked the young girl’s hair and said tenderly, “Yue Er, I will wait for your return in half a year. My Yue Er will definitely have a drastic improvement in her strength.”
Training in the sacred spirit spring for half a year was akin to training for a few years outside, so Madam Sheng Yue was confident that her daughter would become much stronger after half a year.
Perhaps she would no longer be her match at that time…
“Sacred spirit spring?” Glimmers of light flashed in Mu Ru Yue’s eyes. She had held a constant interested in the sacred spirit spring for quite some time. But now her only worry was Ye Wu Chen.
“If Wu Chen comes to find me, let him wait for me within the Xiao family.”
Madam Sheng Yue frowned slightly. “Yue Er, are you referring to your fiance? Didn’t he already come to find you?”
Mu Ru Yue shrugged her shoulders as she sighed helplessly. “That was a fake.”
Xiao Tian Yu and Madam Sheng Yue looked at each other before their gazes shifted to Mu Ru Yue. “Yue Er, what happened?”
Because she also wanted to get a deeper understanding about the Nangong family, Mu Ru Yue didn’t hide any information from them and told them everything. Madam Sheng Yue frowned darkly once she heard the name Nangong Zi Feng.
“I’ve heard that, initially, Nangong Zi Feng’s performance had been quite mediocre, but she underwent some significant changes two years ago. Her strength increased rapidly. Yue Er, how do you know Nangong Zi Feng? From what I know, she’s never left Sheng Domain, so she shouldn’t have had a chance to leave the Nangong family. Thus, this Nangong Zi Feng is a mystery. But from what you have said, she is really familiar with you and Ye Wu Chen. She even knows your personalities like the back of her hand…”
