Chapter 1216 – Lord Dean Part 2
When Mu Ru Yue followed Lu Zhen into the courtyard, she saw a village woman sweeping the courtyard with a broom.
The village woman didn’t have an outstanding appearance but her body figure within the worn out cloth robes was extremely slender. Yet, her entire body was covered with a layer of dust hiding her original appearance…
“Lu Zhen, have you brought her here?”
The village woman wiped away the cold sweat from her forehead. When she turned around, her gaze landed on Mu Ru Yue.
She sized up Mu Ru Yue from top to bottom. There was a sharp gaze within her eyes that had an unknown emotion…
Mu Ru Yue felt a little pressured under that kind of gaze. But that oppression vanished quickly.
The village woman withdrew her sharp gaze and with a smile on her face, she complimented, “Not bad! You are indeed a rare outstanding seedling. Lu Zhen, you are dismissed. I have some words to say to her.”
“Understood, Lord Dean.”
Mu Ru Yue was a little startled.
‘Is this woman that doesn’t have an outstanding appearance the mysterious Lord Dean, the founder of God academy?”
“Hehe! Are you very disappointed?”
The woman chuckled and said, “Is it that you can’t imagine the Dean of God academy having to sweep her courtyard herself?”
“No.” Mu Ru Yue shook her head and explained, “It is best to do everything yourself. It not only helps in temperating your personality, but it also helps in breaking through.”
The woman glanced at Mu Ru Yue in shock. She didn’t expect her to say such words. She subconsciously chuckled and said, “You have a maturity that doesn’t belong to your age. If other disciples were to see that I am this kind of person, perhaps… they will be doubtful of my identity. Only you will say such words…”
Mu Ru Yue didn’t say anything. But she just walked forth to take the broom from her hand and gently swept the dust and sand before her…
“The path in cultivation is tedious! More importantly, we must calm our hearts to cultivate slowly. At times, such tasks that people belittle is actually the best way to calm the heart.”
The woman’s gazes became gentle. She then said in a tone as gentle as the wind, “You are an outstanding youth. It’s truly a pity for you to be buried within God academy.”
Mu Ru Yue raised her eyebrow and clarified, “You are the dean of the academy. Yet, you are saying things to devalue your academy?”
“Hehe!” The woman chuckled lowly and replied, “I am not devaluing God Academy. I’m merely stating the truth, My God Academy naturally is matchless powerful. However, you are really being buried in here. Little girl, personality is really important as a cultivator. You need to endure loneliness and stay calm and collected. Therefore, I believe there will be a day that your name will be engraved into God Realm. But… For some reason, you remind me of a past acquaintance…”
Mu Ru Yue’s finger trembled. She stopped her hand movement and turned her head to look at the woman behind her and asked, “The past acquaintance you are referring to is…”
“He is my beloved.” The woman giggled. Her smile didn’t have any sorrow. It was just as gentle as the breeze. She continued, “But he loves another woman. His heart could only hold that woman even after she died. Nonetheless, it was sufficient for me to follow behind him as his close friend. I’ve never wished for him to look at me after all these years as only that kind of devastating beauty can be compatible with him…”
“What happened to the man after that?”
“That man…” The woman chuckled bitterly as she continued, “He has gone missing. I’ve been searching for him for many years but to no avail. Perhaps he has already reunited with her in another world. In that case, I can only pray they will stay together for all their life and eternity…”
