Chapter 22- Green Pill
Tian Yuan frowned as most things about his disciple was great, but his temperament still wasn’t sufficiently stable.
Ye Tian Feng then remembered that his Master was still here, so he hastily suppressed the anger in his heart. “Master, your disciple was previously too angry so….”
“It doesn’t matter. But with that temper, it will be hard for you to shoulder great matters. You should learn from the rest.” Tian Yuan sighed. “That’s right, a peerless genius was recently discovered. It was a talent that had roused Grandmaster Wu Yu’s heart and made him want to recruit a disciple.”
Astonishment was seen in Ye Tian Feng’s eyes.
He had been in the Qing Yun Sect for about a dozen years already, so how could he not understand the temperament of Grandmaster Wu Yu? That old man’s sight was incredibly high, and his gaze was vicious and fierce. He initially wanted to be taken under his wing, but he was rejected right on the spot.
With his position in the Qing Yun Sect, the disciple he recruited would definitely have a high status in the sect.
“Who was that talent that had moved Grandmaster Wu Yu’s heart and even made him recruit a disciple?”
He was really curious as to how that person could enter the high sighted eyes of Grandmaster Wu Yu.
“It’s a young teenage girl.” Tian Yuan smiled. “We still don’t know her name and identity. I’m not telling you this so you can help me search for her. You’re a disciple of the Qing Yun Sect after all, so if your movements are too obvious, it will attract attention from the other sects. Moreover, Grandmaster Wu Yu had already said that this matter cannot be made known to anyone. My purpose in telling you this is to make you understand that there is a peerless talent in the city. There may be some difficulties for that girl you love to obtain victory in a few months time.”
Ye Tian Feng’s heart sunk. “Grandmaster Tian Yuan, even if Ting Er obtains second place, Royal Grandfather shouldn’t care that much.”
“Indeed.” Grandmaster Tian Yuan stood. “But haven’t you thought that if she wants to enter Qing Yun Sect, she must obtain first place so that she can be comparable to Crown Prince Jing’s status and become a disciple of the Qing Yun Sect? You really don’t want her to get the top position? Don’t worry, Master has some plans for that.”
His heart moved as Ye Tian Feng looked at Tian Yuan. “Does Master mean…”
“Hehe!” Tian Yuan stroked his beard and smiled. “I remember that your girl is a Third Martial Stage practitioner. I’ve a Green Pill that can be used to increase her power. Let’s go. Master will go with you and meet that girl to see if she really is compatible with my disciple.”
A Green Pill could allow a martial practitioner under the Fifth Martial Stage to break through a level, but it could only be used once in their life.
Ye Tian Feng became excited. His adam’s apple moved up and down as he replied, “This disciple thanks Master for his kind intentions on Ting Er’s behalf.”
In the Mu family, cheers filled the manor ever since Mu Qing had returned.
It was unknown what Mu Ting Er and Mu Yi Xue chatted about after they gathered around Mu Qing, but that something made them let out a trail of bell-like laughter. Suddenly, when a sharp-sighted daughter of the Mu family noticed Mu Ru Yue walking in from outside the manor, her lips lifted into a smile.
“I had long ago said that someone wouldn’t be compatible with the Crown Prince, but that certain person didn’t listen. Now it’s great that she is going to marry a fool. Haha! I heard that the fool’s mind isn’t too good, and his appearance is so ugly that it’s ghost-like, having literally scared a maid senseless. Hey everyone, let’s take a guess. If a certain person were to wed, will she go crazy from looking at the Ghost King’s appearance?”
Mu Ru Yue’s brows raised as the image of an innocent and handsome face with innocent and enticing pure eyes entered her mind.
‘Such a handsome person had become an ugly, ghost-like existence. This is indeed the might of rumours.’
Perhaps, it was due to him rarely leaving the manor. Nobody helped dress him up, so after a long time, everyone thought he was so ugly that he couldn’t meet with people.
‘Who knew that his handsome appearance could instead make all the colours in the world fade?’
Mu Ru Yue ignored the girl, but who could’ve known that the girl didn’t want to let her off? As she was heading to her room, a delicate figure blocked her path.
“Mu Ru Yue, are you deaf? Couldn’t you hear that I was talking to you?”
Looking at the young girl with a snow-white face, Mu Ru Yue asked in astonishment, “You were talking to me?”
Mu Yi Xue’s face reddened with fury. Just as she wanted to brandish a hand to hit Mu Ru Yue, she was restricted by Mu Ting Er. “That’s enough Xue Er! She is still your blood sister. No matter what, you shouldn’t raise your hand against her due to anger. If you do, I won’t recognise you.”
