Chapter 446- I Will Be Responsible For You Part 4
Mu Ru Yue shook her head with a bitter smile.
‘I think I am being too sensitive during this period of time. The child hasn’t been born yet, so how can he have such a power?
‘I must be overthinking things…’
Two days later.
The Third Master of the Xiao family stood outside the cavern and sniggered as he looked at the sealed entrance. “It has been two days. None of that little girl’s bones should have remained. Her capability is inferior so no one is to be blamed. Someone, open this cavern!”
She was the one that sought her own death this time so Xiao Feng couldn’t put the blame on him.
The Third Master of the Xiao family burst out in laughter as he imagined the sorrowful and despaired expression of Xiao Feng. The opening of the cavern was slowly parting as he laughed.
Yet, at that moment, a happy voice came from within the cavern. It gave this tranquil back mountain a hair-raising atmosphere.
“What? Is it time already?”
Lingering, spirit-like white robes appeared before the Third Master of the Xiao family.
When his gaze lowered slowly, the girl’s impeccable face entered his eyes. The girl was smiling as she looked at him. Only, the Third Master of the Xiao family felt her smile was as sinister as a malicious spirit wanting another’s life.
A shriek reverberated through the entire cavern and then echoed as though it were replying to him…
“You… are you human or a ghost?” The Third Master of the Xiao family widened his eyes in terror as he retreated and asked with a shaky voice. He just wanted to faint right at this moment.
Mu Ru Yue smiled and asked indifferently, “What do you think?”
“No! This is impossible. You should have died!”
‘How… how can this woman survive after staying with that ferocious beast for two days….’
“I wonder if I passed the test?” Mu Ru Yue swept a glance at him. “But this test is rather difficult and I nearly lost my life. I will engrave what happened today into my heart and will definitely repay you for this in the future. You don’t need to thank me; I just don’t like owing people gratitude.”
Actually, when she was in danger, Mu Ru Yue wanted to hide in the Alchemy Book. But the Tao Tie ran away in fright before she could do that…
The Third Master of the Xiao family swallowed his saliva as he trembled, speechless.
He thought that Mu Ru Yue would die for sure. Who knew she would be this lucky…
Mu Ru Yue didn’t continue talking to him and walked past his side…
In the courtyard, maple leaves fell lazily. Xiao Feng walked briskly toward Mu Ru Yue after she left the cavern. He then asked, worried, “Are you alright?”
“I’m fine.” Mu Ru Yue shook her head as she replied with a smile.
Xiao Feng heaved a sigh of relief after hearing that.
When that old man came back, he didn’t stay for long and left. If not, that Third Master of the Xiao family wouldn’t have been able to do such a thing even if his guts were a hundred-fold more than what he had.
Xiao Feng really was afraid that he wouldn’t be able to suppress his impulse to kill that bastard.
It was lucky that she came back unharmed…
“It is good that you are fine.” Xiao Feng patted Mu Ru Yue’s head dotingly. With a smile on his handsome face, he continued, “You must be tired. I will bring you to a place so that you can rest.”
Mu Ru Yue nodded slightly. The moment she turned around, she missed the cold ray of light that flashed in the man’s eyes.
‘Third Master of the Xiao family!’
Xiao Feng smirked ruthlessly. In that past, he hadn’t bothered with him. Firstly, he didn’t place any importance on him and secondly, it was to give Xiao Bai Xuan some face.
But since the Third Master of the Xiao family was delusional enough to try and kill his sister, he wouldn’t continue to bear with him this time…
