A disdainful glare flashed across Xia Chuxue's eyes. Even though it disappeared very quickly, Gu Ruoyun managed to catch it.
Xia Chuxue did not show any other expression on the surface. She smiled and continued, "Then I thank you, Miss Gu, very much."
The Xia family has Supreme Jin and the Vermillion Bird now, why would we need one woman to take care of us? However, the fact that this woman was able to say these things obviously means that she had known my older sister! She's also still unaware that it was really the Xia family who had murdered Xia Ruoyun.
Otherwise, she would not have been able to sit here calmly and talk to me. She even said that she would like to take care of the Xia family.
Of course, Xia Chuxue did not know that Gu Ruoyun meant to 'take care' of them in a different way. When she finally discovers the actual meaning behind these two words, she would then understand the meaning of being too late for regrets!
"Mo Shangfei, let's go."
Gu Ruoyun held back the cold light in her eyes as she glanced at Xia Chuxue. She then turned around and walked out of the courtyard.
Mo Shangfei paused for thought before he quickly followed Gu Ruoyun out.
Outside the Xia family home.
The two paused in their footsteps and Mo Shangfei stared at the woman in green. He hesitated for a moment before he finally asked, "Lady Gu, was it the truth? Did Master Xia... And Xia Chuxue really treat my cousin in that manner?"
Xia Ruoyun had risked her life to bring the Holy Spirit Fruit back! Why would she then give it to Xia Chuxue? Was it because sisters must respectfully concede amongst one another? Otherwise, it would be considered treason, a most heinous crime?
Having lived for so many years, this was the first time Mo Shangfei has ever heard of such a principle.
Most importantly, Xia Chuxue was the one who had stolen the Holy Spirit Fruit but it was the victim, Xia Ruoyun, who had been forced to apologize to her!
Gu Ruoyun smiled serenely. She did not look back. Instead, she calmly asked Mo Shangfei with her back towards him, "What do you think?"
What do you think?
These words depicted Gu Ruoyun's sentiments perfectly.
Mo Shangfei laughed bitterly, "I never thought that the Xia family would have done such a thing in the past. Xia Ming and Xia Chuxue have always displayed good mannerisms in front of the world; one was a loving father and the other was a gentle and kind younger sister. Also, during my grandfather's funeral, Xia Ming was in mourning and Xia Chuxue had wept until she fainted. I really find it hard to believe that such emotional people would do something so malicious."
Actually, when he had seen how Xia Chuxue's expression changed, Mo Shangfei should already know the truth behind the matter!
However, he still found it hard to believe that the perfect Xia Chuxue would steal another's property! Perhaps not even the entire Drifting Wind Country would have been able to imagine that.
Now, he could no longer not believe it!
Mo Shangfei gently closed his eyes and his expression full of hurt, "That year, when the Mo family had been destroyed, only I, a child, had managed to escape that fate. Fortunately, Xia Ming took me in so that I would be sheltered. Even though I'm only a bodyguard in the Xia family, I had felt so grateful! At that time, everyone was deathly afraid of provoking that cultivator and did not dare to even be near me. Only the Xia family had dared to do this."
Gu Ruoyun smiled calmly. The reason why the Xia family had dared to take Mo Shangfei in was because it was the Xia family who had destroyed the Mo family!
Besides, Mo Shangfei was discovered to have pretty good talent at a young age. Now, he was already a Martial Emperor despite the fact that he has yet to reach the age of twenty. His powers were on par with her in her past life so the Xia family had been more than happy to have found a handy replacement!
"I had promised the Little Princess to help her in her treatment. It's still early so let's go and check out the situation."
Gu Ruoyun turned away and sighed, "That little girl, she sure knows how to make a person worry."
