Murong Yan trembled with anger as she glared fiercely at Murong Rou'er.
I never imagined that this woman would be so shameless! No one in this life could possibly top her shamelessness!
Someone sniggered softly. Soon after that, they saw a young man who was dressed in embroidered robes stepping forward with a fan in hand. His mouth was curled into a disdainful smile. He fixed his cold, arrogant gaze upon the flustered Murong Yan.
"Rou'er, is this your legendary little sister? Why would you still hold onto your sisterhood for someone like this?"
As he spoke, his eyes were filled with sarcasm as he looked down at the people before him as if they were not fit to stand in front of him at all.
"Who is he?"
Murong Yan furrowed her brows as she stared at the youth who was dressed in embroidered robes, "I don't think I've seen him in Black Rock City before."
Lu Shaochen's face slowly sank and he momentarily fell silent. He then slowly explained, "He is the Governor of White Glory City's son. He's probably here to participate in the Black Cloud auction. However, I never expected that he would end up fooling around with Murong Rou'er. It would seem that Murong Rou'er does, indeed, have some tricks up her sleeve."
Murong Yan sneered and thought, Murong Rou'er has always used her act as a pitiful, helpless damsel to garner sympathy. That's been her trick all along!
Furthermore, Murong Yan could now see that she would go so far to announce to others about how she had been slandering her older sister.
"Sir Bai," Murong Rou'er slowly stepped forward and replied gently, "I do not blame Yan'er. It's my fault for not educating my own sister well enough. I'm to blame for her mistakes. Seeing as Sir Yeh Lin has stated his conditions to make up for the situation, give your two friends over to him. Don't worry, when the time comes, I will help you clear this up. Sir Yeh Lin will not harm them."
Such words, dripping with strong affection, made everyone feel the concern of an older sister for her younger sister. This caused them all to feel increasingly unsatisfied with Murong Yan.
Why can't she see how much her older sister truly loves her?
Faced with the cold stares from the crowd, Murong Yan laughed icily, "Murong Rou'er, do you really think that Yeh Lin would let them off so easily once they've fallen into his grasp? And you, are you really doing all of this for my sake? Forget it. You can parade your artificial charade in front of others all you want but I've seen right through your act long ago."
Murong Rou'er panicked, "Yan'er, you understand the depth of power that the Yeh family possesses. You might even say that they're a level above the Murong family! I'm thinking of the good of the Murong family! Furthermore, your friends have injured Yeh Lin. Can they really still be expected to leave Black Rock City? The Yeh Family is backed by the Wolf's Fang Robbers!"
The Wolf's Fang Robbers!!!
A peculiar glint flashed across Gu Ruoyun's eyes once she heard that name.
If I remember correctly, that vulgar-looking thug that I had met when I first set foot in the Banished Lands had mentioned something about his sister being the concubine of the right-hand man of the Wolf's Fang Robbers.
Now, it seems that even the Murong family is afraid of the Wolf's Fang Robbers. I wonder what kind of power do they hold?
Naturally, after Murong Rou'er had spoken, Murong Yan fell silent.
But after her momentary pause, she slowly spoke up again, "Murong Rou'er, are you done yet? If you're finally done, get out of my sight! Quit standing here and blocking my view! Furthermore, it is not the place of a daughter of a small concubine to criticize or give orders summarily in the Murong family!"
Murong Rou'er clenched her fists tightly as a white-hot anger burned within her chest.
It was because she was the daughter of a concubine, coupled with the fact that she had no talent, that she has had to endure mockery and ridicule ever since she was a child.
