Chapter 57- Hidden Growth in Feelings Part 8
It was hard for him to believe that such a handsome, submissive-looking man could be the rumoured Ghost King whose appearance was rumoured to be like that of a ghost’s. This… this was basically two different people.
“Is there a need for me to lie to you?” Mu Ru Yue asked, shrugging her shoulders.
“But…” Li Lu was at a loss for words for a moment before he muttered, “Those rumours originated from the palace, so I thought they were genuine.”
“Palace?” Mu Ru Yue narrowed her eyes. It seemed it was time to investigate the source of those rumours. “Let’s not care about that for now. Li Lu, how many experts can you gather for me in three month’s time?”
“If it is with Essence Purification Pills as a condition, I can assist you in assembling a hundred experts between the Fifth to Eighth Stage. The Essence Purification Pill doesn’t have much attraction for experts above the Eighth Stage.”
“Alright, I’ll give you three months.”
She would try her best to increase her strength in three month’s time….
Just as Li Lu turned to leave, the Mu family arrived….
When Mu Yi Xue looked at Ye Wu Chen, who was beside Mu Ru Yue, she seemed to have become infatuated by his handsome appearance. She was unable to shift her gaze away from him.
The young man had hair like flowing ink, and his skin was so white it seemed almost translucent. He had pure eyes that carried a slight ignorance to the current on-goings. His lips were elegant and had a slight cupid’s bow.
The young man’s gaze continually rested on Mu Ru Yue, filled with a sense of reliance. It was as though his eyes could hold only that person in its gaze.
Mu Yi Xue tightly clenched her fists in jealousy. Her long fingernails lost their color as the harmonious sight before her looked incredibly eye piercing. She wanted to kill Mu Ru Yue and take her place.
“Mister, who are you? Why are you with my eldest sister?” Mu Yi Xue gritted her teeth, asking furiously. She glared at Mu Ru Yue before shifting her gaze to Ye Wu Chen.
Ye Wu Chen looked slightly apprehensive at her before saying, “My wife, that mad woman is too terrifying. Can you chase her away?”
Mad woman? Mu Yi Xue’s charming face changed slightly. If it wasn’t for Mu Qing who signalled with his eyes for her to stop her impulsive actions, she would have stepped forward and snatched that young man to her side.
“Mister, I’m not a mad woman but the woman beside you is.”
“Xue Er!” Mu Qing glared at her. If he knew she would be so impetuous, then he definitely wouldn’t have let her accompany him. After all, the purpose of his arrival today was to convince Mu Ru Yue to return to the family.
Mu Yi Xue’s eyes burned with fury, but she didn’t say anything further and just looked at Mu Ru Yue with jealousy
“My wife is a good person and isn’t a mad woman.” Ye Wu Chen’s face turned blood red from anger. Rage filled his pure eyes. “If you continue bullying my wife, I’ll kill you.”
Mu Ru Yue was stunned as she looked at Ye Wu Chen. He had killing intent in his eyes. She asked in astonishment, “Wu Chen?”
In her heart, Ye Wu Chen was clean and beautiful, like an innocent child. Who knew that he could harbour killing intents?
“Father once told me that a man must protect his wife. I’m a man, so if anyone bullies my wife, I’ll kill her. I will definitely kill her!” Ye Wu Chen looked at Mu Yi Xue as he shouted in rage.
If someone else said that, perhaps Mu Ru Yue wouldn’t believe it. But since it was Ye Wu Chen, she couldn’t help but believe he would do it even if he couldn’t accomplish it.
Her heart suddenly bloomed with an indescribable feeling.
“Wu Chen, don’t let blood soil your hands.” Mu Ru Yue gently held his hand and said, smiling, “I can manage the killings. You’re the sole pure person in this world. I won’t let blood dirty your hands.”
