Chapter 304 – Inheritance Part 3
Mu Ru Yue’s legs gave way after making the order and she kneeled heavily on one leg. Perspiration flowed down her cheeks, drop after drop landed and seeped into the ground.
Madam Sheng Yue was alarmed, her face pale as she ran hastily toward Mu Ru Yue.
“Yue Er, how are you…”
When Mu Ru Yue raised her head, she was met with Madam Sheng Yue’s anxious gaze. She chuckled lightly while shaking her head and said, “Don’t worry. I just overdid it a little. I will be fine after a couple days of rest.”
Mu Ru Yue didn’t know why that sword technique suddenly appeared in her mind when she was just about to be unable to hold on. Nevertheless, that sword skill required too much energy and it was impossible for her to carry it out by herself. Thus, she had made them transfer their power to her body.
Yet, Mu Ru Yue was just a Low Rank Xiantian after all so there was a limit to how much her body could withstand. If it hadn’t been for her reliance on the Alchemy Book, she wouldn’t have been able to withhold that much external energy entering her body.
“Yue Er, it’s great that you are fine. Please refrain from doing such a risky act in the future.” Madam Sheng Yue raised her arms and pulled Mu Ru Yue into her embrace, glimmers dancing in her beautiful eyes.
The heavens knew how worried and terrified she had previously been. She did say she believed in her, but how could she not worry? Madam Sheng Yue was afraid her body would explode from the excessive amount of power.
Mu Ru Yue rested silently in Madam Sheng Yue’s embrace, a slight smile on her lips.
She was really blessed to be able to rush back at the most crucial moment. If she were even a split second late, she perhaps would have been unable to reunite with her family…
Mu Ru Yue closed her eyes from exhaustion as she thought about that.
She really had used up all of her energy in that battle and couldn’t maintain her consciousness…
Xiao Tian Yu stepped forth to embrace his two deeply beloved girls. His handsome face was gentle. His heart relaxed as he looked at the mother and daughter in his embrace with deep affections.
The others were panting heavily while sitting on the ground.
At that moment, they had sent all of their powers without reserve to Mu Ru Yue. This simultaneously proved their trust in her. It was great that this young girl didn’t let them down and managed to defeat Nangong Zi Feng.
Old Man Xiao wiped the sweat from his forehead as he turned his gaze towards the paled Elder Xiao, commenting, “Elder Xiao, I said this earlier; no one of our Xiao family will die.”
Elder Xiao chuckled bitterly while shaking his head. With a light sigh, he replied, “I originally made up my mind to pursue the old ancestor after entering the underworld. Who could have known I would still be alive? Since this is the case, I will accomplish the final task and personally bring her to accept the Xiao family’s inheritance. This can be counted as accomplishing all of the entrusted tasks given to me by the ancestor.”
More importantly, it was about time to tell her some of the Xiao family’s classified information.
She had the right to know about the passed old ancestor of the Xiao family and the family’s genuine identity! As a 17-year-old Xiantian expert, she could be counted as one of the most talented people even in the Central Region.
Perhaps she was the only one to bring the Xiao family to that place. This was actually the true wish of the old ancestor before he passed.
As he thought about those people that had scorned the old ancestor, Elder Xiao’s gaze became slightly grim. A smirk graced his face. He wondered how they would react when they knew such a monstrous person appeared in that Xiao family they had chased out of the Central Region. Would they regret their initial decision?
“Elder Xiao, once Yue Er awakens I will tell her to find you.”
Elder Xiao nodded. He parted his lips as if about to say something, but swallowed his words in the end.
“I will wait for her in the inheritance room.” Elder Xiao glanced at Mu Ru Yue before heading to the back courtyard.
It was unknown when this person, an elder who had solely supported the Xiao family after the passing of the old ancestor, began to stagger so much in his steps. That solitarily and desolate view of the elder’s back made Old Man Xiao’s heart tighten…
