Chapter 1029 – Getting A New Servant Part 3
The elder’s eyes dilated as he stammered, “Yo-you… did you just consume a…”
‘Heaven Stage High Rank Mystic Spiritual Pill!
‘It’s no wonder why she didn’t care about my Heaven Stage High Rank pill as she herself possesses a lot of Heaven Stage High Rank pill…
‘Can she be a hidden disciple of a Heaven Stage Peak Rank alchemist? There is only a Heaven Stage Peak Rank Alchemist within this entire purgatory.’
Horror brimmed in the elder’s heart upon thinking about that. He then asked, “Are you a disciple of Grandmaster Xu Wu (nothingness)?”
‘That’s right, who else except being a disciple of Grandmaster Xu Wu would be able to possess so much Heaven Stage High Rank pill?’
Mu Ru Yue raised her brow as she replied, “I’m sorry, but I don’t know who is that Grandmaster Xu Wu that you are referring to.”
The elder’s heart sank abruptly.
‘The more she says it in such a fashion, the more I am certain that she is definitely his disciple…
‘It is just that she didn’t want others to know…’
“Misunderstanding… This is just a misunderstanding.”
The elder chuckled awkwardly.
‘Not only is the Grandmaster Xu Wu a Heaven Stage Peak Rank Alchemist, but rumours also said he had broken through to the half-god realm. If this little girl is really his disciple, I will unmistakably die a terrible death once he finds out about this…’
“Misunderstanding?” Mu Ru Yue sniggered as she neared the elder. “I don’t think this is a misunderstanding. Since you wanted my life, then… it is natural that I take yours instead!”
The elder’s expression changed slightly.
‘Currently, Mu Ru Yue has increased her might with the help of the pill. Frankly, I feel the possibility of defeating her has been decreasing.’
But an indifferent voice was heard before he could come up with a win-win solution.
“However, if you want to keep your life, I can give you an option!”
“What is it?” The elder was startled.
‘Since I am already confident that Mu Ru Yue is certainly a disciple of the Grandmaster, I can no longer kill her. Thus, I definitely can’t continue battling against her…’
Mu Ru Yue raised her gaze as she said casually, “Become my puppet!”
“What?” The elder almost jumped as he smiled forcefully and continued, “Little girl, are you kidding me? How can I, an honorable Supreme Realm expert, be your puppet?”
Mu Ru Yue raised her brow and said, “It is possible for you to have your freedom. I can kill you first before giving you your freedom!”
Momentarily, the elder’s heart trembled as he looked astonished at the girl’s slight smile expression. A trace of conflict appeared within his heart.
‘It doesn’t seem too humiliating to be a puppet for a disciple of a half-god…
‘I just don’t know if I am just overthinking now. What should I do then if that’s the case? It’s a pity that I already don’t have such a chance…’
The elder calmed down upon thinking about that. “Alright, I agree.”
Mu Ru Yue smiled lightly. “I will immediately refine you into my puppet now. You mustn’t resist my refinement. Otherwise, even I don’t know what will happen…”
Boundless flames erupted from Mu Ru Yue’s body. Those flames gradually headed toward the elder from the ground, instantly enveloping the elder within.
‘The process in refining a puppet isn’t very complicated. Previously, I had refined a disciple of the Medicine Sect into a puppet for the safety of the Pill Tower. But following that, the Medicine sect’s disciple met with a mishap so I don’t know what happened to him next…’
Quickly, the elder’s gaze, bit by bit, became unfocused under her refinement to the point that his gaze turned empty and blank. It was as if he didn’t know what he should do.
Mu Ru Yue gradually withdrew her mental power. With a cold gaze, she ordered, “What’s your name?”
The elder no longer had the original arrogance that he had during the first time he met Mu Ru Yue. He was like a servant instead as he bowed and bend his knee when he replied respectfully, “Reporting to Master, my name is Lu Yang (pitchpipe hoist).”
“Mhm.” Mu Ru Yue nodded as she ordered, “You shall follow me by my side from now on.”
‘I don’t understand much of this place. Thus, I decided to keep Lu Yang as my servant. Moreover, with a Supreme Realm expert as my servant, my life’s safety will be more ensured.’
When the crowd saw this scene, they couldn’t help but be a little stupefied. They looked at the woman’s peerless face in a daze.
Just like that, a Supreme Realm expert had become her servant?
Could she dare to be even more abnormal?
