Mu Yi Xue’s complexion flushed bright red. Just when she was about to argue, she was yelled at by Mu Qing, “Xue Er!”
Xue Er was too insensible and had forgotten their purpose in coming here.
Even though she was angry, Mu Yi Xue could only forcefully suppress her anger. She glared viciously at Mu Ru Yue, who sat quietly at the side, but didn’t say anything further.
“Yue Er, Xue Er isn’t sensible. As her elder sister, you shouldn’t mind her actions.” Mu Qing turned his head towards Mu Ru Yue before saying remorsefully, “Father has let you down, so I’m here to fetch you home. Don’t worry, I’ll repay my misgivings to you from now on. Can we head home together?”
Mu Qing looked sincerely at Mu Ru Yue. Those who didn’t know him would think he was a good father that laid down his status to bring his daughter home.
But how could Mu Ru Yue believe him so easily ?
Mu Ru Yue chuckled lightly, a chilling intent surfaced in her eyes. “Li Lu, send the guests off. I don’t welcome Mu family members here.”
Li Lu was already displeased by these people. If it wasn’t for Mu Ru Yue’s order, he would have already tossed them out of the house.
Mu Qing’s expression changed. He hadn’t expected that even after he dropped his status to invite her back, this girl didn’t agree.
“Mu family’s Head and Third young mistress, why are you still standing there? Didn’t you hear the Mistress’s words? Could it be that you’re insisting my mistress to stain the place with blood before you’re willing to leave?” Li Lu frowned as he spoke unceremoniously.
Mu Qing’s expression darkened. “Mister Li, even if you are the son of a general, it’s still not a right of yours to care about my Mu family’s business.”
“That’s interesting, when did I care about your family matters?” Li Lu feigned confusion, as though he really didn’t know anything. “I was clearly just helping my Mistress chase away some shameless creatures. What does it have to do with your Mu family? My Mistress isn’t a member of the Mu family.”
“You!…” Mu Qing’s complexion turned ashen as killing intent burst from his entire body. “Yue Er, do you really insist on not returning to the Mu family?”
Mu Ru Yue yawned as she glanced indifferently at Mu Qing’s ashen face; she stayed silent. Mu Qing, however, could read her decision from her expression.
Since she wasn’t willing, he could only make his move…
A ray of light flashed in Mu Qing’s eyes. Just as he wanted to forcefully bring Mu Ru Yue home, a hurried voice was heard. “My disciple, my good disciple! Can you lend me your furnace for a while?”
An elder rapidly moved forward and quickly appeared before Mu Ru Yue.
This elder was wearing fancy clothing, yet he had unkempt white hair and looked as though he’d just came out of a trash bin. His body was also covered with dust, and carried a pungent odor about him.
Mu Yi Xue disgustedly knitted her elegant eyebrows as she unbearably waved her hand, saying, “Where did this beggar come from? He’s so dirty. He’s disgusting me to death and even dares act so flippantly in front of me!”
Hearing that, the old man stopped moving before turning his head to look at the adorably charming Mu Yi Xue. He blinked his eyes before pointing to himself and asked, “Are you referring to me?”
Mu Yi Xue coldly sniggered, disgust expressed on her face. “Who could it be except for you? Could it be you don’t even know your status? It’s blasphemy for me to even say a word towards a beggar like you.”
Mu Ru Yue couldn’t help but cough drily as she found the current scene displayed before her hilarious. She looked on with elated eyes.
The great Chief Alchemist of the Qing Yun Sect, Grandmaster Wu Yu, was thought to be a beggar? This should be the first time that old man has been treated with such disdain.
