‘This… is my promise to her.’
Mu Ru Yue smiled as she replied, “Alright, I will be waiting for you.”
Leng Yan lowered his gaze slightly, covering his resolution-filled gaze.
‘I know it will be a long way to catch up with her. But there will be a day that I will catch up with her…’
“This is the pill to treat him.”
Mu Ru Yue glanced at Emperor Leng’s ashen complexion. With a trace of a sneer, she said, “But this pill will only give him an extra year of life. If he didn’t treat Leng Yan this badly, I perhaps may have fully treated him. Hence, I am giving an extra year of life on behalf of Leng Yan…”
In other words, she gave the pill to Emperor Huang that would enable him to live for another year in order to sever his father and son relationship with Leng Yan.
Leng Yan’s heart trembled. His cold gaze softened. A light smile was gradually displayed on his grave and stern face.
Although it was only a slight curve, it was able to daze people.
Yin Ling looked dazedly at Leng Yan with an infatuated gaze.
“So Team leader’s smile can be so beautiful. It’s just a pity that smile wasn’t toward me…’
She smiled bitterly upon thinking about that.
‘However, I believe that as long as I continue following by Team leader’s side, I will be able to melt his heart no matter how ice-bound it is!’
Yin Ling clenched her fist discreetly. With an increasingly resolute gaze, she stared at the side on the man’s handsome face.
“Leng Yan,” Mu Ru Yue raised her hand and with a toss, a jade bottle appeared before Leng Yan. She continued, “This is the Innate Spiritual Pill. You will be able to have the greatest innate talent possible for a short period of time after you consume it. You should make use of that period of time to cultivate assiduously. I will be waiting for you to catch up to me.”
Leng Yan clenched the jade bottle in his hand tightly. With a gaze glimmering with a scorching glow, “This shall be the reward for me selling my life to you.”
‘Selling his life?’
Mu Ru Yue’s eyebrows twitched slightly. Just when she wanted to say something, the man’s cold voice was heard.
“There is a rule within the mercenary world. If we accept an item, we must give them back an item of the same price. I don’t have anything that I can give to you so I will lead the small Purgatory team to devote their loyalty and devotion to you! You shall be our owner from now on. Once we have accumulated sufficient might, we will head out to seek for you!”
In this short period of time interacting with Leng Yan, this was the longest speech he had said.
But similarly, Lu Yang’s resentment voice was heard before Mu Ru Yue could say anything. “Master, you are biased. You give him a bottle of Heaven Stage High Rank pill but you gave me nothing! Moreover, I am not aware of such a pill as the Innate Spiritual Pill.”
Mu Ru Yue’s expression darkened.
‘Is this guy really a puppet? Even though using a human’s body to refine a puppet isn’t the same as puppets refined from gemstones, they will act like normal people other than complying to me.
‘However, Lu Yang was different from the two other puppets I had previously refined, daring to hoot at me.’
“Why do you need the Innate Spiritual Pill as a person of the Supreme Realm?” Mu Ru Yue glanced at him before asking with slight impatience.
Lu Yang pursed his lips with resentment as he replied, “I want to research on that pill! If Master has a Heaven Stage Peak Rank pill, it will be much better. I may be able to break through to the Heaven Stage Peak Rank then.”
Lu Yang’s eyes lit up upon commenting about that.
‘Since she is the disciple of Grandmaster Xu Wu, she perhaps may possess a Heaven Stage Peak Rank pill. I still have not seen how a Heaven Stage Peak Rank pill looks like in my life yet.’
