Mu Ru Yue raised her brow, but otherwise didn’t have any other change in her expression.
If others were here, they would have been quite surprised to hear that Madam Sheng Yue was a disciple of Senior Dan. Senior Dan held an extremely prestigious status in the Medicine Sect, even the head of the Medicine Sect wouldn’t dare be impolite to him.
“If I see Senior Dan, I will help send mother’s regards to him.”
Madam Sheng Yue smiled gracefully. With the assistance of Senior Dan, she wouldn’t face any dangers. The Xiao family would be able to fight the Nangong family wholeheartedly.
After bidding farewell to Xiao Tian Yu and Madam Sheng Yue, Mu Ru Yue carried the little beast Yan Jin and left the house. Her figure gradually vanished under the sunlight…
Seeing that she had left, the smile on Xiao Tian Yu’s face gradually disappeared. He sighed and asked, “Yu Er, there are some things happening in the Medicine Sect lately. Is it really a good decision to let Yue Er go there?”
“Master will definitely protect Yue Er.” Madam Sheng Yue cast her gaze slightly downward. “Master has always treated me like his biological daughter for all those years. Even though I wasn’t an alchemist, he still ignored the objections of the Medicine Sect and wanted me to head it. However, I chose to marry you in the end, giving up the position of head of the Medicine Sect. Because of this, master was displeased and has been unhappy with me these recent years. However, I know master still worries about me. Hence, I feel guilty toward master and haven’t been shameless enough to ask for his help, no matter what has happened.”
It might have been the memories about those days at the Medicine Sect that made Madam Sheng Yue smile warmly.
“I will let Yue Er look for him this time and let him protect Yue Er for me. Moreover, I believe in Yue Er. Perhaps master will even take a great liking for her…”
Her daughter, to put it simply, was outstanding. Even if her master didn’t like her just because of their connection, he would still definitely have a great impression of her.
“Husband, my master is actually someone who speaks harshly, but has a gentle heart. No matter how angry he was at me, it should have already diminished after all these years. Being the head of the Medicine Sect really didn’t suit me. Even if I hadn’t met you, I still wouldn’t have taken on that position and could only have let master down.”
Only alchemists had taken up the position of head of the Medicine Sect throughout the history of the sect. It was a pity that she didn’t have the slightest talent in being an alchemist. Even if her master suppressed everyone’s objections within the sect, she herself didn’t want to destroy the Medicine Sect that had brought her up with her own hands.
“Yu Er,” Xiao Tian Yu embraced Madam Sheng Yue tightly. With a gentle smile, he continued, “In this life, no matter if you are the beloved disciple of Senior Dan, or an ordinary commoner, you are still my Xiao Tian Yu’s wife. If you feel guilty toward Senior Dan after all these years, we should pay him a visit after some time. Although he had said he didn’t want to see you, I know he has wanted to see you more than anyone else…”
Madam Sheng Yue smiled blissfully. She had never regretted her decision.
So what if the head of the Medicine Sect would have only one person above him and countless people below him? It was still incomparable to the love from this man. If master knew Xiao Tian Yu’s current feelings, he probably wouldn’t have stopped them from coming together so many years ago…
“Little girl, what are you going to do now?”
Yan Jin raised his head and looked at Mu Ru Yue with large, watery eyes.
Mu Ru Yue smiled and said, “Let’s head to Nan City first. We will then investigate the Nangong family at night. I strongly believe that there is a hidden connection between elder brother going missing and the Nangong family.”
“Haha!” Yan Jin laughed loudly before saying arrogantly, “Alright, after we reach Nan City, we will investigate the Nangong family. It’d be best if we could completely mess up the Nangong family so much that it seems that the heavens and earth have switched places.”
