"They were in my way."
Gu Ruoyun calmly raised her gaze as she spoke with a clear and cold voice. She looked as if nothing particularly surprising had happened and remained in her usual calm demeanor.
She then quickened her pace and walked away without sparing anyone else a second glance.
A complicated look appeared in Murong Yan's eyes as she stared at the delicate yet tall figure who was like a slender bamboo tree, "Senior Brother, who do you think she really is?
"I don't know either." Lu Shaochen shook his head, "She had previously made a move against Yeh Lin, and now she has attacked Yeh Ling. Was it really because they were both in her way? I don't know why but despite the short time that I've gotten to know her, I can tell that Miss Gu isn't really a cold and merciless person. Quite the opposite, in fact, she's actually very affectionate except that she doesn't always show it so easily."
Perhaps she had remembered the scene when they had all first met one another for Murong Yan lowered her head in embarrassment, "Senior Brother, perhaps I've really been in the wrong. I shouldn't have treated her with such animosity in the beginning."
"Yan'er, it's about time you had an attitude adjustment." Luo Shaochen said with a smile.
This girl is certainly hard-mouthed and not very good at composing herself. However, because of this, it was quite common for her to provoke problems with her foul temper...
In a corner not too far away, Murong Rou'er fixed her gaze upon Murong Yan and clenched her fist as she mumbled to herself angrily, "Do you really think that you can inherit the seat of the Murong family's master and Big Brother Lu in this manner? Let me tell you this, dream on! I still have one last trump card in my hand! This trump card will definitely force you into giving up completely."
Whether it's Lu Shaochen or the Murong family, they should all belong to me!
No one can take them away from me!
At the Murong family home.
In the courtyard, Gu Ruoyun watched Lu Shaochen and Murong Yan as they passed her by. She calmly raised her eyebrows, "I need to speak to you two. It wasn't convenient for me to mention this in public but now that we're alone, I can freely discuss these matters with you both."
Murong Yan and Lu Shaochen had not noticed it but due to Gu Ruoyun's higher level of power, she had long sensed Murong Rou'er who had been lurking in the shadows. That's why she had decided to return home and wait for their return.
Lu Shaochen smiled, "Lady Gu, there's no harm in saying what you think. I'll help you as much as I can."
"I've asked to speak to you not because I need your help." Gu Ruoyun replied with a glint in her eye, "It's because I want to help you."
Lu Shaochen was stunned and he turned to look at Murong Yan before looking back at Gu Ruoyun, "Lady Gu, what you're saying is..."
"Actually, it's nothing much. I would like to see old Master Murong. Perhaps I can heal him."
Murong Yan's expression stiffened as she widened her eyes and stared at Gu Ruoyun's pretty face in shock. She looked as if she had just heard something impossible. Then, her stiff expression slowly filled with excitement as she dashed forward and grabbed Gu Ruoyun by the hand. In this very moment, her voice trembled.
"You... Is this true? Grandfather... He... He can be cured?"
The reason why the Yeh family looks down on the Murong family was because the backbone of the Murong family had fallen ill. If her grandfather had been cured, Yeh Ling would never have acted with such impudence!
More importantly, her parents have long passed away so her grandfather was now her only relative. If there was a chance for him to be saved, she would give everything that she has with no complaints.
"That's right, I can save him. But on one condition."
A light flashed across Gu Ruoyun's face as she smiled calmly, "I want the Murong family to vow their loyalty and devotion to me!"
