Chapter 595: I Disagree

Mu Hongyu’s eyes lit up.

None of the cultivators in the world wouldn’t want to become stronger—Mu Hongyu was no exception.

In the past, she didn’t know what the Faint Yuan Body was. She only gradually understood that she had gained a rare body type after she heard Song Zheng talking to the crowd below when she was trapped in the metal cage.

Hearing Chu Liuyue say this, she felt tempted too. “Can I really stay here?”

Tianling Dynasty, imperial capital Xi Ling… These were places that she didn’t even dare think about in the past.

Chu Liuyue said affirmatively, “Of course, you can. Even though you smuggled over at first, Young Master Jian has already bid for you. You have become his man, so naturally, you can stay legitimately.”

Jian Fengchi’s wrist moved, and the fan gently hit his brow bone. He looked down, and nobody could see his expression. My man… This sounds…

Mu Hongyu nodded in deep thought. “Does this mean that I always have to be beside him in the future? Didn’t those people say that I’m a… slave…”

Mu Hongyu said the last word very hesitantly.

She didn’t know how she suddenly became a slave. In the past, she was still a princess in Country Yao Chen no matter what. Yet, she suddenly became a slave in the blink of an eye when she reached here.

Anybody would find it hard to accept.

Chu Liuyue explained the Tianling Dynasty’s law to her. “…Though you didn’t do it on purpose, you did smuggle over. Besides, Yu Xiang Hall’s people have already openly auctioned you, and this incident will spread very quickly. Thus, everyone will immediately think that you’re a…”

Every word that Chu Liuyue said caused Mu Hongyu’s face to darken one shade further.

Jian Fengchi suddenly said, “Actually, there is a way to get rid of your slave status.”

Mu Hongyu’s eyes lit up. “Really? What way?”

But Jian Fengchi didn’t immediately continue his sentence.

An idea popped up in Chu Liuyue’s mind, and she looked at him with doubts.

In the Tianling Dynasty, even the slave’s master had no right to cancel one’s slave status secretly.

There are only two ways to get rid of this status.

One: the slave had to achieve a big accomplishment and receive immunity from the emperor. But this type of situation was very rare, and its number of occurrences could be counted with one hand in the Tianling Dynasty’s thousand-year history.

The second was… marriage. If the master and slave got married, the slave’s status would naturally be canceled.

This was the way most slaves used to change their status.

This way wasn’t actually that simple either because a slave’s status was very lowly amongst the Tianling Dynasty’s crowd. If one married a slave, they would always receive all sorts of mockery and contempt. Normally, the master wouldn’t be willing to suffer all of this just for a slave.

This was unless the slave had strong powers. After all, this was a world where the strong were respected.

But comparatively, this was much simpler than the first way.

Mu Hongyu definitely couldn’t go for the first method, so Jian Fengchi was most likely talking about the second method.

Shui Liu’er seemed to have noticed something as she suddenly looked at Jian Fengchi, and shock flashed across her eyes. What exactly is Jian Fengchi thinking? He’s Mu Hongyu’s master now! Does he plan to disregard his status as Dragon Teeth Mountain’s young master and marry Mu Hongyu?

Shui Liu’er did like Mu Hongyu, but she was still closer to Jian Fengchi after all.

If Jian Fengchi really did this, even if his parents agreed, the entire Dragon Teeth Mountain would not! How could the young master’s wife have such a background?!

Even though Jian Fengchi’s mother had an ordinary background back then, she wasn’t a slave!

The few people in the room fell into an eerie silence.

Mu Hongyu glanced at each of them and was very confused. What’s… going on? Weren’t we talking nicely just now?

She said hesitantly, “If this incident will put you in a difficult spot, then we shouldn’t do it. I’ll think of another way myself! You guys have already helped me a lot, and I can’t trouble you anymore.”

Chu Liuyue glanced at Jian Fengchi with deep meaning. He wouldn’t have said that previous sentence unintentionally, right…

Jian Fengchi felt guilty from her glance and averted his gaze. To be honest, he himself was stunned when he said that.

But hearing Mu Hongyu say this now, he felt an unknown sense of discomfort.

“Hongyu, we can’t settle this matter so quickly. But if you properly cultivate and become a strong warrior, all these problems can be resolved,” said Chu Liuyue seriously.

Mu Hongyu saw her definite and reassuring expression, and the uneasiness in her heart gradually dissipated.

Chu Liuyue seemed to have the power to reassure people. It seemed like everything wasn’t a problem as long as she was here.

Mu Hongyu curved her almond-like eyes and nodded forcefully. “Mm, I’ll listen to you!”

Chu Liuyue thought for a moment and said, “You have two choices now. One: you follow me and enter Chong Xu Cabinet. The other choice is to follow Young Master Jian to Dragon Teeth Mountain. According to your current capabilities, you can casually pick whichever clan you like in Xi Ling.”

Mu Hongyu said without hesitation, “I’ll go with you to Chong Xu Cabinet!”

Jian Fengchi raised his brows and finally knocked on the table. “May I know if you forgot about one person? Mu Hongyu, I redeemed you, so you naturally should go to Dragon Teeth Mountain. Why would you go to Chong Xu Cabinet with Chu Liuyue?”

Dazedness and weirdness flashed across Mu Hongyu’s eyes. “But… I’ve always been with Liuyue!”

It was like this back in the academy. Since there was the chance now, it would naturally be this way too.

She had never thought of following Jian Fengchi…

Chu Liuyue’s lips curved up, and she lazily said, “Young Master Jian, didn’t you tell me to return the money to you earlier? I’ll do it, and Hongyu will follow me from now on. I’ll naturally take care of her.”

Jian Fengchi blurted out, “I disagree!”
