Chapter 971 – Return Part 2
‘How can I not understand that this girl was saying I should accept these gifts without guilt?’
With her heart filled with gratitude, she said, “Lady Mu, I understand. I will be able to help much more people that needs my help when I have sufficient might. I can also use my might for my loyalty and devotion to Hua Xia!”
Mu Ru Yue tossed a jade bottle to Hong Ying after Hong Ying said that. Hong Ying raised her hand to catch the jade bottle. She looked at the flawless figure standing before the mountain door entrance with reverence and respect.
‘I had heard about Mu Ru Yue’s name since ages ago. Currently, my idol is so close to me and even gave me her pills, making me even more excited…’
“Hao Tian,” Mu Ru Yue raised her head as she continued with a smile, “Please help me to entertain the guests.”
“Elder sister, don’t worry. Your guests are my guests. I will entertain them to the best of my ability for you.” Mu Hao Tian smiled. He had a great impression for the heroic and straight forward Hong Ying.
‘If it was others, they would have already kept those pills. But she was able to resist against that temptation…
‘With that point, she is different from those greedy people…’
“Mother!” Ye Si Huang paused for a moment before he looked at Hong Tian Qi and the rest’s pale faces while smiling from ear to ear as he continued, “Huang Er don’t feel like continuing to see these people that had previously bullied Huang Er. Can we do something about that?”
Hong Tian Qi’s expression changed as he hastily looked at Mu Ru Yue and said, “Lady Mu, I…”
“Hao Tian, who are they?” Mu Ru Yue frowned slightly as she swept a cold glance at the people of the Hong family.
Mu Hao Tian raised his eyebrows as he replied, “They seem to be people of the Hong family.”
“Hong family? Did we invite them?”
Mu Hao Tian shook his head with certainty.
‘The Hong family is too weak so they aren’t eligible to be invited…’
“Since they aren’t invited…” Mu Ru Yue paused for a moment before she continued, “There’s no need to let them into the Mu family’s manor. Wu Chen, what do you say?”
Ye Wu Chen had been quietly standing by Mu Ru Yue’s side since the beginning. He smiled slightly upon hearing Mu Ru Yue’s question and used his charming smile to say, “You can make the decision. Our Zi family will listen to whatever you decide…”
“Let’s go then.”
Mu Ru Yue held onto Ye Si Huang’s hand as she entered the large doors, no longer looking at the paled face Hong family’s brother and sister.
Hong Tian Qi no longer cared about anything as he grabbed onto Hong Ying’s hand as he pleaded sincerely, “Lady Mu seems to have a great impression for you. Please help beg mercy for me. We need to attend the wedding no matter what. Now, you are the final hope for the Hong family. You shouldn’t forget favors and violate justice!”
‘The Hong family had almost used up all of their wealth in order to get the invitation card. If Father knows that we were unable to enter the manor, he will unquestionably beat me up to within an inch of my life.’
Hong Ying expressionlessly withdrew her hand from his grip as she refused coldly, “My apologies but Lady Mu had allowed me to attend her wedding due to me helping her son. I’m afraid you are barking up the wrong tree if you want me to beg her for mercy on your behalf. I don’t have the capability to do that. Moreover, you have not done any favors for me so how can I forget favors and violate justice? Hong Tian Qi, what you said was really hilarious!”
“You…” Hong Tian Qi’s expression changed drastically as he chided, “Are you just going to watch us die? Hong Ying, don’t forget that you have the Hong family’s bloodline running in your body. The Hong family had given you life and nurtured you. How can you treat our Hong family so heartlessly? We really shouldn’t have given life to you, a cold and ruthless ingrate!”
“You…” Hong Ying’s expression turned ashen. Scorching flames of fury blazed in her eyes. But she was even more disappointed…
