Xiao Feng’s heart jolted, a trace of astonishment gracing his cold face. Did he hear it right? His sister said she was going to manufacture an Earth Stage Peak Rank pill?
An Earth Stage Peak Rank alchemist already held a highly prestigious status in the world, excluding the Central Region.
Could she be an Earth Stage Peak Rank alchemist?
Mu Ru Yue didn’t bothered with Xiao Feng’s thoughts as she glanced at him. “Father and mother were really worried when you disappeared. You should head back to the Xiao family to reunite with them first.”
Upon hearing that, a trace of guilt rose in Xiao Feng’s heart.
He had been recuperating in South Island these past days and his wounds had recovered only recently. He initially wanted to make a full recovery before taking that woman back to the Xiao family to meet his parents. Who could have known this would happen?
“Second sister, let’s head home. It’s also been some time since I’ve been home…”
Excitement shone on Xiao Feng’s handsome face as he thought about reuniting with his family. He didn’t know how much that little girl Qing Qing had grown and if someone had dealt with the Nangong family’s matter…
In the Xiao family of Xiao City.
Leaves littered the courtyard. Madam Sheng Yue was standing under the maple tree as she looked afar, sighing for the nth time.
“Yu Er, are you thinking about Yue Er and Feng Er?” Xiao Tian Yu embraced her from behind. With a gentle smile, he continued, “Don’t worry. They’ll be fine.”
Madam Sheng Yue sighed. “That girl is so mischievous to actually run to the Nangong family by herself. I shouldn’t worry for that? If something were to happen to her too, what should I do?”
Madam Sheng Yue’s voice was choked with emotions as she said that. When she remembered the report from Yan Jin, she was a little frightened. If something were to happen to her daughter, even she didn’t know what she would do.
“Yue Er didn’t want you to worry so she reported it to you only after she had accomplished her objective. Just stop worrying, alright? She should have already met up with Senior Dan. She might even be on her way home already. Who knows? She might even bring Feng Er back with her!”
Madam Sheng Yue sighed. “It will be great if that really happens.”
Those two were her daughter and son. She couldn’t help but worry…
Just as she was thinking about Mu Ru Yue and Xiao Feng, a joyful voice came from the front yard. “Young head, young madam, great news! The second young mistress has returned with… with the eldest young master!”
Madam Sheng Yue’s body shook. It seemed as though she couldn’t believe her ears as she asked again, “What did you say?”
The man was panting, but he still reported hastily, “Young madam, your subordinate has reported that the second young mistress and the eldest young master has returned and are heading here now.”
Now that Madam Sheng Yue heard what the person said clearly, happiness appeared on her elegant and exceptional face. This was certainly the greatest news she had heard in this period of time.
Suddenly, footsteps sounded from behind. Madan Sheng Yue turned around stiffly. When she saw the two familiar faces, she was so stirred up that her tears flowed down uncontrollably.
“Mother, we have returned.”
Xiao Feng walked before Madam Sheng Yue and lowered his head to say that gently.
Madam Sheng Yue extended her shaky hands, one to caress Xiao Feng’s face and the other to pull Mu Ru Yue into her embrace, her heart could only really calm down after feeling the heat of their bodies.
“Feng Er, Yue Er, you two have finally returned. Do you know how fearful your mother was? Please don’t do such risky activities in the future. You can leave all the dangerous matters to your parents.”
Mu Ru Yue leaned into Madam Sheng Yue’s embrace and smiled as she felt this familiar warmth. “That’s right, mother, how’s the Nangong family?”
