Chapter 477- Failure Of The Plot Part 2
Xiao Jing blinked her large eyes and greeted lovably, “Grandfather Wu Shan.”
“Hmph!” Wu Shan shook his sleeve harshly and commented, “Don’t even try to get close to me. I wouldn’t be able to bear it.”
He then turned his head toward Mu Ru Yue and chatted cheerfully and wittily with her. The Third Master of the Xiao family’s expression turned ashen after he saw Grandmaster Wu Shan’s smile, and he clenched his fists tightly.
Xiao Jing was slightly startled. A flicker of light flashed in her eyes when she saw Mu Ru Yue’s impeccable appearance, but she remained silent.
“Lady Mu, let’s head in.”
Wu Shan made a gesture to invite her inside first, an intensified smile on his elderly face.
“I don’t know what wrong medicine Grandmaster Wu Shan ate for him to favour that girl to such an extent.” The Third Master of the Xiao family’s brows frowned slightly. He was really displeased by the fact that Grandmaster Wu Shan was treating Mu Ru Yue so courteously.
Countless powers had been invited over.
It wasn’t that they didn’t want to reject the invitation, but since even Grandmaster Wu Shan had come on the behalf of the Emperor, how could they not attend?
The crowd was captivated by the sight once they entered the Pill Tower…
The entire hall had a luminous and simple, yet elegant design. A couple of expensive medicinal plants were displayed in the surrounding. At the foremost area of the hall sat a handsome man. His appearance looked as though his face had been crafted by the heavens, and his black robe only served to enhance his dominance.
The man seemed about twenty years of age. His hands were placed to support the back of his head, and the slight opening of his black robe revealed a strong and healthy chest. He looked really mesmerizing.
Everyone had a thought when they saw this man…
The man was like a mighty monarch. His black, ink eyes swept a glance through the crowd, bringing with it a pressure. It was as though he were looking down upon the world with disdain.
“It’s him!” Xiao Jing’s body shuddered vigorously as she exclaimed with astonishment.
“Jing Er, you recognise that man?”
The Third Master of the Xiao family looked toward the young girl beside him and asked with a slight raise of his brows.
“Mhm.” Xiao Jing nodded slightly and continued, “I had met him at mummy’s grandfather’s side house. But that had been two years ago. I also only had a glance of his face then.”
It was a pity that it was really difficult to get acquainted with that man…
Xiao Jing sighed and lowered her gaze slightly with some disappointment.
His lofty figure was carved into her mind even though it had been just a glance, making it impossible for her to forget him even after such a long time. The purpose for her heading home this time was to ask her daddy to search for the location of this man.
She didn’t expect to meet him again here…
“Everyone has arrived?” With a smirk, he glanced at the crowd with a domineering gaze as he continued, “Since everyone’s here, go ahead and take a seat. Somebody, serve them some tea.”
Once he said that, servants came forth to serve the guests tea.
One of the guests immediately exclaimed in amazement after tasting the tea. “Why do I feel my energy increased drastically from drinking the tea?”
Everyone was stunned before they hastily sipped the tea.
“That’s right, my energy increased as well.”
“My cultivation is rather low so the increase is greater…”
Yan Jin narrowed his gaze slightly. With a fake smile, he continued, “I had already told everyone a lot of matters regarding our Pill Tower. I invited everyone here to enquire about this. Will you be willing to join our Pill Tower? If you accept, you will naturally enjoy benefits. If you aren’t willing, I will have to ask you to head back out…”
The crowd became silent after hearing that.
An elderly voice was then heard while they were trapped in their thoughts. “Since everyone still hasn’t make up their mind, then let this elder be the first to join the Pill Tower.”
Everyone instantly turned their heads in the direction of where the voice was heard. When they saw the elder, they were startled.
