The large event held by the Medicine Sect quickly came to its conclusion; nonetheless, those that came to the Medicine Sect didn’t think it was a wasted trip. That was because upon departing from that place, they would be able to brag that they had seen a seventeen-year-old Earth Stage Peak Rank alchemist who had treated an illness that left several higher ranked alchemists clueless.
This was especially embarrassing for those alchemists that had disdained her for being a mere Human Stage Mid Rank alchemist. They now badly wanted to dig a hole and hide in it.
During this period of time, the Qin family’s people wanted to visit Mu Ru Yue, but were blocked outside by Ye Wu Chen. He didn’t like strangers disturbing their peaceful time together.
In comparison to that, Mu Ru Yue and Ye Wu Chen commenced with their plans.
Hence, every alchemist in the Medicine Sect got an invitation to witness the wedding of Ye Wu Chen and Mu Ru Yue. This event would be held on the 15th of the following month.
Mu Ru Yue thought it would be a bit too much of a rush, but Ye Wu Chen had already reached the limits of his patience. If it wasn’t for the incident with the Saintess Sect, they would have already wedded, and perhaps there would have already been a child in Mu Ru Yue’s womb by now. The delay had dragged on for nearly a year already.
Ye Wu Chen frowned slightly as he thought about the sect leader of the Saintess Sect who escaped his clutches. Ghost Manor had been searching for the location of the Saintess Sect, but it was to no avail.
That man was a scourge. No matter what, he would eradicate him sooner or later. But after his own wedding with Mu Er, that man shouldn’t have any more thoughts regarding her…
After distributing the invitations, they rushed toward the Xiao family in order to prepare for the wedding ceremony next month. Fortunately, they had already prepared most of the necessities for the ceremony, so they didn’t need to use too much effort in getting their wedding ready.
As Mu Ru Yue and Ye Wu Chen were passing by a forest near Xiao family’s residence, they saw a long, flax-coloured-robed man who lay unconscious on the grass. His face was pale due to massive blood loss.
This man was very good looking. His appearance was so handsome that it seemed carved, with sword-like brows. His long hair spread all over the ground, and his body was covered with blood. The countless blade wounds on his body made him look terribly horrifying.
Despite that, his beauty wasn’t affected in the slightest. His strong and healthy wide chest was exposed and gave off a charming glow under the sunlight.
Mu Ru Yue initially wanted to ignore the man and walk past him, when suddenly, her gaze fell on the jade pendant at the man’s waist.
The word ‘Xiao’ that was distinctly carved on the pendant caught her attention…
‘It can’t be that this man is from the Xiao family, right?’
“Mu Er, what’s wrong?” Ye Wu Chen turned his head to look at Mu Ru Yue, with a gentle smile on his charming and handsome face.
Mu Ru Yue narrowed her eyes and explained, “This man has the Xiao family’s jade pendant. He should be related to the Xiao family. I want to save him!”
Perhaps this jade pendant was something he just picked up or he could just have the same surname, but she would rather save thousands of the wrong people as long as there was a possibility that they were the right people. If he really was from the Xiao family, she would definitely be remorseful her entire life if she were to ignore him.
Mu Ru Yue took out a pill and forced it into the man’s mouth. The man obviously still had some lingering consciousness, as he swallowed the pill.
The moment the pill was consumed, the man gradually opened his eyes…
What kind of eyes were those? They were so deep they seemed to draw people to him. They were like bottomless pits that would make it impossible for people to see any of the man’s emotion.
When the man’s eyes landed on the young girl, a trace of wariness appeared in his black eyes as, word by word, he uttered, “Who are you?”
Mu Ru Yue didn’t answer his question and instead asked calmly, “Are you a person from the Xiao family—what is your name?”
The large event held by the Medicine Sect quickly came to its conclusion, but those that came to the Medicine Sect didn’t think it was a wasted trip. Upon departing from that place, they would be able to brag that they had seen a seventeen-year-old Earth Stage Peak Rank alchemist who had treated an illness that left several higher ranked alchemists clueless.

Miki chuckled at such a sight. “Ye Wu Chen, you are like a possessive guard dog.”
