Mu Hongyus eyes lit up.
None of the cultivators in the world wouldnt want to become stronger—Mu Hongyu was no exception.
In the past, she didnt 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 didnt 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 Fengchis 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 Didnt those people say that Im a… slave…”
Mu Hongyu said the last word very hesitantly.
She didnt 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 Dynastys law to her.
“…Though you didnt do it on purpose, you did smuggle over.
Besides, Yu Xiang Halls people have already openly auctioned you, and this incident will spread very quickly.
Thus, everyone will immediately think that youre a…”
Every word that Chu Liuyue said caused Mu Hongyus face to darken one shade further.
Jian Fengchi suddenly said, “Actually, there is a way to get rid of your slave status.”
Mu Hongyus eyes lit up.
“Really What way”
But Jian Fengchi didnt immediately continue his sentence.
An idea popped up in Chu Liuyues mind, and she looked at him with doubts.
In the Tianling Dynasty, even the slaves master had no right to cancel ones 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 Dynastys thousand-year history.
The second was… marriage.
If the master and slave got married, the slaves status would naturally be canceled.
This was the way most slaves used to change their status.
This way wasnt actually that simple either because a slaves status was very lowly amongst the Tianling Dynastys crowd.
If one married a slave, they would always receive all sorts of mockery and contempt.
Normally, the master wouldnt 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 couldnt go for the first method, so Jian Fengchi was most likely talking about the second method.
Shui Liuer seemed to have noticed something as she suddenly looked at Jian Fengchi, and shock flashed across her eyes. What exactly is Jian Fengchi thinking Hes Mu Hongyus master now! Does he plan to disregard his status as Dragon Teeth Mountains young master and marry Mu Hongyu
Shui Liuer 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 masters wife have such a background!
Even though Jian Fengchis mother had an ordinary background back then, she wasnt a slave!
The few people in the room fell into an eerie silence.
Mu Hongyu glanced at each of them and was very confused. Whats… going on Werent we talking nicely just now
She said hesitantly, “If this incident will put you in a difficult spot, then we shouldnt do it.
Ill think of another way myself! You guys have already helped me a lot, and I cant trouble you anymore.”
Chu Liuyue glanced at Jian Fengchi with deep meaning. He wouldnt 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 cant 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 wasnt a problem as long as she was here.
Mu Hongyu curved her almond-like eyes and nodded forcefully.
“Mm, Ill 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, “Ill 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 Hongyus eyes.
“But… Ive 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 Liuyues lips curved up, and she lazily said, “Young Master Jian, didnt you tell me to return the money to you earlier Ill do it, and Hongyu will follow me from now on.
Ill naturally take care of her.”
Jian Fengchi blurted out, “I disagree!”
