Evil Emperor's Wild Consort - chapter-527
Indeed, once the last syllable fell, Elder Er was immediately enraged. He
scoffed coldly, “Rou’er, you don’t have to cover up for that idiot. She
has obviously lost her nerve and decided to give up on the old Master!
What a loss for the Master who had once loved her so much and this is how
she repays him!”
Naturally, Murong Yan’s early return was due to the Herb of Anxiety.
Even after changing her clothes, her body remained tainted with the smell
of the herb. So no matter where she went, she would attract a herd of
spiritual beasts. She had no choice but to return home early.
“Please don’t be angry, Elder Er, Yan’er didn’t do it on purpose.
Besides, it’s not like she had come back empty-handed. At least she came
back with two beggars, one who’s an adult and one who’s a child.”
It’s not like Murong Rou’er had looked down on Gu Ruoyun but based on her
torn and tattered state, she could not have been anything else but a
beggar. As for Ye Nuo, seeing as he had accompanied her, she had assumed
that he was a beggar as well.
Elder Er burst into rage, “This Murong Yan has crossed the line. Not only
has she returned after just one day, she’s even picked up two beggars
along the way. What kind of a place does she think this is that any
beggar can enter at will? Servants, have someone throw the beggars whom
the Second Lady has brought into the house out of here before they can
dirty the floors of my Murong family home.”
Murong Rou’er looked shocked and quickly stopped him, “Elder Er, this is
no good. They’re Yan’er’s guests after all. If you do this, Yan’er will
certainly get angry and as her big sister, I cannot condone any grievance
to befall my little sister. Please, let it go, Elder Er. For my sake.”
She spoke in a voice filled with emotion.
Of course, a sinister light escaped through her eyelids.
“Rou’er, you don’t need to get angry for that idiot’s sake. The old
Master is now sick and bedridden. No one can shield her now. I’ve never
liked that brainless idiot! She’s completely useless and was always
stirring up some form of trouble.”
Elder Er was so caught up in his rage that he missed the sinister look in
Murong Rou’er’s eyes.
No one knew that every time Murong Yan was provoked, it had always been a
result of her machinations. Every time someone had insulted her, that
idiot would jump into action and fight for her. Hence, she would always
stir up trouble, building her reputation as an arrogant despot; a girl
with huge melons but zero brains.
The most laughable part was that even Murong Yan herself was blissfully
unaware of this. She was unaware that Murong Rou’er had purposely hired
those people and that it was she who had spread the rumors about her
She has always been in the dark about this and would always treat me like
her dearest older sister, thought Murong Rou’er.
“But, Elder Er…” Murong Rou’er hurriedly concealed the light in her
eyes and tried to speak. However, she was cut off by Elder Er’s furious
“No more excuses. How do you think the other families will look at us if
the Murong family were to welcome these beggars? I’m going to throw them
out right now! Rou’er, let me give you a piece of advice. You may treat
Murong Yan like a little sister but she may not be as sincere as you.
Mixing with an idiot like that will only damage your reputation.”
Murong Rou’er bit her lip and slowly lowered her head. A sneer flashed
unseen across her face.
Murong Yan, don’t blame me for being heartless! She thought. If anyone
was to blame, blame Grandfather for favoring you too much.
If I don’t destroy your reputation, how can I remain in the Murong
family? What would I have to pluck Lu Shaochen off of you? Only when your
good name has sunk to the bottom of the ocean can I truly have everything
I deserve. Whether it’s the Murong family or Lu Shaochen, all will become
