Chapter 1142 – Sealed Grounds Part 7
‘Can there be anyone in the world more miserable than them?’
The entire mountain was burnt to a crisp after Mu Ru Yue left the mountain. Wang family’s brothers looked reluctantly at the mountain range they had lived for about two decades. They then led all of the bandit group’s members to leave the place with Mu Ru Yue…
The exterior of the Region Head manor was covered with a layer of dust. The horizontal rectangular inscribed tablet that hung over the door laid in halves on the floor. There were even footprints on it. More importantly, it looked really worn down and outdated.
“Wang Hai, go and knock on the door.”
Mu Ru Yue frowned.
‘There should be people living within the Region Head Manor. Why does it look so miserable then?’
Wang Hai responded respectfully. He walked up to the door.
He knocked on the door. An impatient voice was heard from within after a long time had passed.
“Who is it?!”
The worn-out door was opened. Momentarily, an elderly figure walked out from within and looked curiously at the few people outside the door.
“The new Region Head that has come to take office here!”
The Elder was stunned as he sized up Mu Ru Yue suspiciously and clarified, “Are you really the new region head? That doesn’t seem right. The people that came previously to take office here were usually either an elder of the academy or disciples that neared graduation. You look really young. How can you be the region head?”
“This is the writ tablet. You can verify it yourself.”
Mu Ru Yue raised her hand and a jade tablet appeared in her palm.
The elder widened his eyes and looked at the writ tablet. He nodded and said, “That’s right, this is indeed the academy’s writ tablet. It seems you’re really Lord Region Head.”
“Can you tell me what has happened here now for the Region Head manor to be in this kind of state?!” Mu Ru Yue raised her brow and asked indifferently.
The elder chuckled bitterly as he explained, “Lord Region Head should be unaware that the local influential power of the North Wind Plains is already well established. Thus, they won’t accept other influential power. They are also unwilling to recognise that the North Wind Plains is God Academy’s territory! Therefore, every Region Head that had come to take office here would be oppressed by all of the influential power here.
“The previous Region Head had been assassinated by them! As a result, there isn’t anyone that is willing to take office here. I originally wanted to leave this place after a period of time. But I didn’t expect to receive a notification from the academy that there will be another person succeeding the region head position.”
The elder paused for a moment upon saying that before he continued, “Region Head, I will want to give you a piece of advice that you should leave this place as soon as possible and not mix into this muddle water. There are too many experts in the North Wind plains. Otherwise, the higher-ups of the academy would show up. You will solely face the same fate as the previous region heads. Furthermore, you’re so young and still have a long time to live. You don’t need to waste your life at this place.”
Mu Ru Yue’s gaze gradually turned grim.
‘It seems that the situation in the North Wind Plains is worse than I thought.
‘But this will make it challenging, no?’
“Since I’m here, I won’t leave.” Mu Ru Yue raised her gaze slightly before she said indifferently, “I want a status report of all the influential power in the Nanyang Region.”
The elder sighed heavily before he shook his head while smiling bitterly.
In his point of view, Mu Ru Yue was just full of youthful vigor. She would eventually give up once she experienced a period of time of the difficulty and danger for being the Region Head…
“Region Head, I’ve already said what ought to be said. Since you’re adamant, I will do my utmost best to serve my responsibilities during the period of time where you’ve taken office here. On another note, I am the manager of the Region Head manor, Kong Fan (hole sail).”
Mu Ru Yue yawned before she said, “I’m tired. I will take a rest first. We will discuss further after I wake up…”
