Chapter 56- Hidden Growth In Feelings Part 7
When Li Lu returned home after the end of the competition, his father viciously beat him up. Li Lu, however, persistently said that a man shouldn’t go back on his promises, that whatever he had promised, he must be committed to it. It had nearly made his old man use a sword to chop his legs off in fury.
In the end, the general’s wife held her husband back after learning about this and said that if he wanted to hit her son again, he had to kill her first. How could the henpecked general still have the guts to chop Li Lu’s legs off? He could only let him do what he wanted.
However, who knew that Mu Ru Yue would go missing after the competition? Li Lu had frequently used his connections to search for her. If it wasn’t for Mu Ru Yue going out of her residence, Li Lu’s connections wouldn’t have been able to find her.
“I almost forgot about something.” Mu Ru Yue stood up from the Imperial Consort’s chair and rolled her shoulders. “ Li Lu, help me recruit some experts.”
“Oh?” Li Lu blinked before asking, “What do you want experts for?”
Mu Ru Yue swept his gaze at him. “It’s definitely so that I could have my own forces. There’s surely a limit to what I can do by myself. If I want to survive, I must have a powerful party on my side.”
Saying this, Mu Ru Yue patted his shoulder. “So, I’ll be passing this matter on to you. I trust you can do it well.”
Hearing Mu Ru Yue say that, Li Lu awkwardly scratched the back of his head. “Mistress, since you have such great trust in me, I’ll definitely not let you down. Isn’t it merely assembling experts? I naturally have my ways to accomplish this. I guarantee that in the next three months, I’ll be able to help you recruit numerous experts. Of course, hehe! Mistress, you must have enough financial power to retain those experts and have them continue serving you.”
“You don’t have to worry about that,” said Mu Ru Yue, smiling. “Get the word out that anyone willing to serve me loyally will receive an Essence Purification Pill. This matter must definitely be done in secrecy so that those in the palace won’t know.”
Li Lu’s eyes lit up. An Essence Purification Pill was a great item capable of strengthening a person’s innate talent.
“Mistress, what will our forces be called?”
“Hmm?” Mu Ru Yue caressed her lower jaw. After being silent for a moment, she said, “It shall be known as ‘Massacre the Heavens Sect’.”
Massacre the Heavens Sect means that even if the heavens were to go against them, they would massacre it with no regrets.
“Massacre the Heavens Sect is a great name. Haha! Mistress, in the future after following you, we’ll be going against the heavens. If we were to go against the land, wouldn’t the heavens be left? If the heavens are unfair, then what is wrong with massacring it?”
Li Lu laughed. He didn’t know that today he had made the best decision of his life. It wasn’t until several years later that he rejoiced about his decision.
‘Massacre the Heavens Sect?’
When no one noticed, Ye Wu Chen chuckled softly. Such a domineering name really suited her….
Mu Ru Yue didn’t think much about the name, but it reflected her heartfelt longing.
In her previous life, her grandfather had went against the heavens to save her father’s life. This resulted in him dying after being struck and annihilated by celestial lightning.
Since the heavens were so heartless, why would it be wrong to eliminate it?
“Li Lu, since you’re currently my subordinate, I’ll introduce you to someone.” Mu Ru Yue turned her head to look at the handsome young man at her side before introducing him with a smile, “This is the Ghost King, Ye Wu Chen.”
Li Lu almost leapt up in shock, his eyes widening in disbelief. After he examined Ye Wu Chen’s unparalleled, handsome appearance, he looked back at Mu Ru Yue and swallowed spittle hard.
“Mistress, are you mistakened? Isn’t the Ghost King as ugly as a ghost? How can he be so handsome that even Prince Hua can’t compare to a single percent of his beauty?”
