Murong Rou'er's face immediately turned dark. She clenched her fists tightly and deliberately forced herself not to lash out. She reminded herself over and over again in her head that he was just a child.
Why should I lower my standards and be so calculative towards a child?
Murong Rou'er's expression slowly returned to normal. Her beautiful and gentle features displayed a soft smile.
"Little boy, I harbor no ill intentions, only... There are certain matters that I wish to discuss with the both of you."
Ye Nuo rolled his eyes as he thought, can this woman not comprehend what he had just said?
"I'm still not in the state where I would lower my standards to speak with a pile of sh*t. You better hurry off to wherever you came from. You are making me nauseous."
No matter how great Murong Rou'er's level of tolerance was, this moment nearly drove her mad.
She no longer cared about her facade as she glared coldly at the little lord before her, "Little boy, did you lose your parents at a young age? Is that why no one has ever taught you any manners? Such a lack of upbringing! Oh, right, I seem to have forgotten. You're nothing but a beggar. How could a beggar possibly have parents?"
She then gritted her teeth furiously as she glared hatefully at Ye Nuo.
This little b*stard has insulted me by calling me a pile of sh*t! He's such a bully! Does he think that I, Murong Rou'er, am a person that he can step on so easily?
Just at that moment, the room's door was slowly pushed open. Gu Ruoyun, who was dressed in green robes, slowly stepped out. She swept her gaze across Ye Nuo's form before it landed on Murong Rou'er's face which was now full of hatred. Gu Ruoyun frowned.
"Can I help you?"
Murong Rou'er softened her expression and fixed her attention on Gu Ruoyun, "Miss, I don't know who the both of you are but I am well-acquainted with all the great families in Black Rock City. Nevertheless, I've never met you before. I'm certain that you are from another country."
She paused for a moment before continuing, "However, after arriving in Black Rock City, you immediately chose to curry favor with Murong Yan. Unfortunately, you're fawning over the wrong person. Murong Yan may hold the Master's Seal, but her position in the Murong family isn't exactly very high. How about this, if you can help me out, I'll grant you many great benefits. Those benefits are good enough to reach the skies."
Gu Ruoyun lightly raised her eyebrow and replied with a smile that did not reach her eyes, "Oh? How would you like me to help you then?"
"It's simple." A vicious glint flashed across Murong Rou'er's eyes, "I want you to help me frame Murong Yan so that the Murong family thinks that she's plotting to harm Master Murong and that she had stolen the Seal from his hands! If you help me with this, you will never want for benefits in the future! Even if someone wishes to bully you, just mention the Murong family name and no one will dare to lay a hand on you. Furthermore..."
Murong Rou'er took a deep breath as if she had made a decision. Then, she raised her head at the girl who had a half-smile on her face.
"I will gift you with one Heavenly Spirit Fruit!"
Everyone knows that the Heavenly Spirit Fruit had the ability to grant a low-level Martial King a breakthrough to a high-level Martial King!
She had obtained this fruit with great difficulty in the past.
The only thing was, because she was unable to cultivate, this Heavenly Spirit Fruit was of no use to her.
But if she could use this Heavenly Spirit Fruit to bribe this woman to help her frame Murong Yan, then it would be worth it!
"Miss Gu, you should be well aware of the value of this Heavenly Spirit Fruit. With this Heavenly Spirit Fruit, you can immediately breakthrough from the rank of a low-level Martial King to the rank of a high-level Martial King. Even if you were unable to reach the level of a Martial King in this life, you can still take this Heavenly Spirit Fruit to the auction. It will certainly fetch a pretty price."
At this moment, Murong Rou'er did not seem to notice Ye Nuo's face which was full of mockery as she spoke.
