Chapter 54- Hidden Growth in Feelings Part 5
“Hehe. Actually, it could be said that everyone knew about his motives.” Wu Yu stroked his white beard before continuing with a smile, “Since you soloed a group attack and won the competition, even defeating the Fifth Stage Mu Ting Er, a lot of elders from the Qing Yun Sect want to recruit you as their disciple. Furthermore, you had already reached such a level of cultivation without the assistance of medicine. If you were to enter the Qing Yun Sect, your cultivation growth would be drastic.
“What’s more important is that many people are curious about that sword technique you used. Since the Mu family had lost their ability to ally with the Qing Yun Sect by marriage, they will definitely use you.”
Mu Ru Yue smiled. Her exceptional appearance became lively with that smile, but her entire being seemed to emit a dense chill. It made Wu Yu worried. He was curious as to what caused this little girl to be this cold?
“I’m not a member of the Mu family. They can’t control me.”
The original Mu Ru Yue had died after that head collision after all. The current her was just a soul that unintentionally came to this continent.
“Relax. With me here, there’s no one daring enough to steal my disciple.” Wu Yu complacently stroked his snow-white beard, radiating confidence.
If anyone knew that Mu Ru Yue was Wu Yu’s disciple, they wouldn’t dare reveal the slightest inkling of their intent to recruit her, not to even mention snatching her away.
Who was Grandmaster Wu Yu? He wasn’t a reasonable person. If enraged, not even the head of the Qing Yun Sect would be able to obtain his forgiveness.
Mu Ru Yue had gained some profit from coming to see Wu Yu today. The Nine Leaves Snow Lotus was a rare treasure. Its effects were a few folds better than the Eight Leaves Snow Lotus, even if it differed by just a petal.
After chatting about nothing substantial, Mu Ru Yue bid her farewell. On her way back to her house, she was seen by the Mu family’s caretaker, Mu Ren Gui.
Mu Ren Gui had gone to Hua Yuan Street to settle a matter and coincidentally saw Mu Ru Yue enter a house. There were two words, Mu Residence, displayed at the front of the house, dazzling with golden rays of light under the sunlight.
During this period of time, Mu Qing had dispatched guards to search for the location of Mu Ru Yue, but who would have thought she would be here at the most unimaginable location?。
What kind of place was Hua Yuan Street? A house here couldn’t be bought by mere wealth. Even the Mu family did not have the means to obtain such a house in such a serene area.
When Mu Ren Gui saw this sight, he hastily went back to report to Mu Qing.
“What did you say?” Mu Qing slammed his hand on the table. With an unfathomable glimmer in his eyes, he continued, “How can Mu Ru Yue live there? Could it have been bestowed by His Majesty as the prize for being champion?”
Currently, Mu Qing could only think of that as a possibility.
After taking a deep breath, Mu Qing calmly instructed, “Somebody attend to me. I’m heading over to see Mu Ru Yue.”
At this moment, Mu Yi Xue came running from the inner court. She clung onto Mu Qing’s arms. With an incredibly adorable smile on her charming face, she said, “Father, I also want to go.”
Mu Qing slightly knitted his brows as he looked at his restless daughter. “If you go, you mustn’t displease your eldest sister. We’ll have to drop our status in order to request for her return.”
He could only do this in order to ensure the alliance between the Mu family and the Qing Yun Sect.
“Father, don’t worry! Xue Er will listen to whatever you say. I promise not to make that slu—” Looking at Mu Qing’s displeased gaze, Mu Yi Xue hastily changed her words, “— promise not to let eldest sister be unhappy.”
