Chapter 597 -Departing To The Ouyang Family Part 3
Ouyang Yun Jin’s gaze turned grim and, with some slight heartache, he said, “It is my blood younger brother. He has always wanted the power in my hands so he has been thinking of multiple ways to eliminate me. Since you are helping me and is a great alchemist, he naturally deems you a large threat so he could only do that.”
Mu Ru Yue’s gaze turned slightly cold. She wasn’t one that would just stay on the defensive. Since someone was delusional enough to try and deal with her, she definitely wouldn’t just wait for them.
“Lady Mu, it is his own personal action. It isn’t related at all to the Ouyang family. I promise that this kind of incident wouldn’t occur again.”
Ouyang Yun Jin was afraid she would shift the blame to the Ouyang family so he hastily explained.
“Ouyang Yun Jin, since you want me to help you, I will need to make a trip to the Ouyang family!”
Mu Ru Yue stood and shot a cold gaze toward Ouyang Yun Jin.
Ouyang Yun Jin was stunned for a moment. He then replied after keeping his silence for a short moment, “The purpose in me coming to find you is for a similar idea. I wanted to invite you over to the Ouyang family. But there are some who may say unpleasant things about you. I hope you can just ignore them.”
Mu Ru Yue smiled faintly and said, “I’ve already heard several unpleasant words before so it won’t bother me. Ouyang Yun Jin, let’s head out now.”
If nobody tries to kill her, she wouldn’t make her move.
But she currently couldn’t afford not to…
Mu Ru Yue narrowed her eyes as a cold ray flickered past her irises. She then felt a warm hand hold her own. Her cold heart gradually thawed.
That’s right, he would always be by her side, not leaving nor abandoning her no matter what happened.
A figure soared through the air and stood in mid-air outside Ghost King’s manor a couple of days later.
She frowned slightly and muttered, “Am I too late? Why do I feel their aurae had left for quite a while?”
It seemed she was a step too late.
Nevertheless, her heart could calm down after knowing they were here…
Suddenly, foreign auras appeared behind Zi Shao, and her expression darkened drastically. She rapidly turned around to cast a gaze toward those auras.
An elder in grey robes stood in the air as he entered her sight. His gaze was as frigid as a blizzard. There was also a handsome youth standing beside him. He appeared to be a gentleman with a gentle temperament.
“Elder Ma, I am sure it was the people from Ghost King’s manor that had snatched our Dongfang family’s medicinal plants.”
Dongfang Jun swept a gaze at Zi Shao before him but didn’t place her in his eyes. This girl was indeed good-looking, but her appearance was still far from Xiao Yue’s.
“Are you certain?” The light in Elder Ma’s eyes dimmed as his gaze turned cold and strict.
“I am.” Dongfang Jun smirked slightly as he continued, “That dragon which robbed the Dongfang family was indeed from Ghost King’s manor.”
Of course, Dongfang Jun was completely guessing blindly.
He was responsible for transporting the medicinal plants. Since something happened, he must find a scapegoat. Mu Ru Yue who had offended him had become that target.
‘Once she dies, Xiao Yue will regain her freedom and come back into my embrace.’
In Dongfang Jun’s point of view, Xiao Yue had refused to return to him due to being restricted by the contract with that woman known as Mu Ru Yue. She would not continue to reject him once he saved the beauty from the sea of flames.
He would then be able to enjoy being served by two beauties.
Zi Shao’s gaze turned grim gradually as she commented, “The people from the Dongfang family? I didn’t expect the people from the Dongfang family would take the opportunity when the owners of the place were away to destroy their home.”
