Thinking about this, she couldn’t help but secretly wipe away her tears before saying with a slight smile, “That’s right, I don’t know your name yet.”
“Mu Ru Yue.”
Mu Ru Yue didn’t have any ill feeling towards this Madam Sheng Yue.
“Lady Mu, is it alright if I call you Yue Er?” An exceptional smile was visible on Madam Sheng Yue’s face. With anticipation in her eyes, she continued, “I once had a daughter who was kidnapped in the past. She would have been your age by now. Seeing Lady Mu reminds me of my pitiful daughter who went missing when she was only a month old. It’s unknown whether she is still alive.”
When Mu Ru Yue saw Madam Sheng Yue’s face that was filled with anticipation, she nodded without hesitation. “Don’t worry, Madam. You will definitely reunite with her if it is fated.”
“We’ll reunite again if it is fated?” Madam Sheng Yue muttered that sentence before shifting her gaze to Mu Ru Yue and saying with a smile, “I will take Yue Er’s blessing then. I also believe that my daughter’s life force is strong. She must still be living, somewhere. You must have come here for the Pill Assembly. If you are in need of assistance, you can come to Purple Cloud Inn to look for me. I can provide you with assistance at anytime. I can’t guarantee this in other places, but nobody will dare to touch a single hair on you here.”
Madam Sheng Yue had a confident smile on her face. She was naturally this confident because she was a person from Sheng Jing’s Xiao Family. In this world, if one excluded some powers from the central region of the continent, who else wouldn’t be afraid of the Sheng Jing family?
“Qing Qing, let’s go.” Madam Sheng Yue lowered her head to hold Xiao Qing Qing’s hand as she spoke gently.
Xiao Qing Qing blinked her adorable eyes as she fluttered her long eyelashes at Mu Ru Yue. With a sweet smile on her jade-like face, she waved her hand at Mu Ru Yue while saying reluctantly, “Beautiful elder sister, you must come to look for Qing Qing. Qing Qing will be waiting for you at Purple Cloud Inn.”
Madam Sheng Yue looked surprised at Xiao Qing Qing. She knew her daughter’s personality well. Qing Qing didn’t like to interact with strangers ever since she was young, but this seemed to exclude this young girl before her.
“I will.” Mu Ru Yue lowered her gaze to look at Xiao Qing Qing. She held great affection towards this adorable little girl. Otherwise, she wouldn’t have saved her.
She didn’t know where such feelings came from. She just didn’t want any harm to come to this girl’s way.
Madam Seng Yue smiled and nodded at Mu Ru Yue. Following that, she nodded at Huang Shao He. Huang Shao He immediately lifted Qin Luo, ignoring his resistance, as he wordlessly followed after Madam Sheng Yue.
The current Qin Luo regretted this all too greatly. If it wasn’t for him wanting to reach the Pill Assembly early and had the horse carriage driver speed up, perhaps he could have avoided this calamity.
By the time the head of the Qin family arrived, Qin Luo had been tortured by Madam Sheng Yue’s subordinate and was hanging onto his last breath.
Who didn’t know that Xiao Qing Qing was Sheng Jing’s little princess? Everyone couldn’t help but dote on her; who could bear for her to lose a single hair? If it wasn’t for that lady Mu Ru Yue’s help today, the little princess would have died already so their actions towards Qin Luo wouldn’t be light.
The head of the Qin family wouldn’t be able to avoid using his family treasure, the Water-repelling Bead, to exchange for his disappointing son’s life. Of course, that was after the others were satisfied with torturing Qin Luo. From now on, the young master of the Qin family would no longer be able to have sexual intercourse. 1
The day for the Pill Assembly had finally arrived in the midst of this commotion….
