Chapter 748 -Madam Sheng Yue’s Family Background Part 2
“The East Island is an island that is located at the Li Lin (arrival) Eastern Sea. Its land is less than a quarter of the Central Region. Yet, the East Island similarly has boundless experts that were almost as powerful as the Central Region. You are an abandoned infant that I picked up when I was touring the East Island.”
Madam Sheng Yue’s heart jolted.
‘I didn’t expect that I come from neither the Martial God Continent nor the Central Region…’
“There was a girl carrying you while she fled that year. She then pleaded for me to take care of you when she saw me. I found her pitiful and agreed. Following that, she died before me…”
Madam Sheng Yue’s body stiffened at that instant, but she didn’t voice out anything to interrupt Senior Dan. She just silently listened to what Senior Dan was saying.
“I then used all of my powers to investigate your origin after she died. I discovered that you came from the Dou family of the East Island.”
“That’s right!” Senior Dan nodded before continuing, “The Dou family can be counted as an aristocratic family in the Central Region that possessed quite a bit of power.”
Madam Sheng Yue took in a deep breath before asking, “Does master know who killed my mother?”
Senior Dan smiled bitterly before replying, “The person that killed your mother was her personal maid servant that was standing by her side.
Madam Sheng Yue was stunned for a moment as she couldn’t believe what she had heard.
Senior Dan continued speaking as though he didn’t realise her astonishment, “Your mother’s background was ordinary, but she had a magnificent appearance and outstanding innate talent. When your mother met your father by chance, they fell deeply in love with one another. But their relationship wasn’t accepted by the Dou family. Yet, your father loved your mother so fondly that the Dou family couldn’t help but accept them.”
“But…” Senior Dan paused for a moment before continuing, “Your mother’s maid servant fell in love with your father. Hence, she collaborated with a few elders of the Dou family to kill your mother. She then used a Disguise Pill to change her appearance to your mother’s to imposter her and stay by your father’s side.”
“Master,” Madam Sheng Yue’s voice was choked up by her emotions as she asked, “Why didn’t you tell me this matter earlier?”
Senior Dan smiled bitterly as he explained, “The backer of the Dou family is the top power of the East Island, the Devil Sect! The Devil Sect played a hand in helping your mother’s maid servant in doing that matter. Otherwise, it wouldn’t be that successful. I didn’t tell you this initially was due to me not wanting you to throw your life away for vengeance. Now…”
He shifted his gaze to Mu Ru Yue before saying with deep thoughts, “Perhaps it is time for you to know…”
Madam Sheng Yue’s complexion turned gravely pale. He eyelashes trembled slightly with sorrow in her eyes.
“More importantly,” Senior Dan focused his gaze on Madam Sheng Yue’s pale face before he continued, “The maid servant that used your mother’s identity treated your mother’s family coldly and even purposefully enraged your grandfather after your mother died. It resulted in your grandfather being bedridden before he passed not long after. Your uncle had similarly been killed by that maid servant. The current person that is maintaining the Wei family1 is your cousin. However, it currently is getting increasingly harder for the Wei family to survive. I’m afraid that the Wei family will be facing an annihilation crisis soon…”
Madam Sheng Yue pursed her lips slightly before she said with resolution, “I want to go to the East Island!”
“Mother!” Mu Ru Yue frowned before she shifted her gaze to Senior Dan and said, “Let me go and settle this matter instead.”
“Don’t fret! I will definitely return alive!”
‘East Island? Dou family?’
Mu Ru Yue smiled. Her smile was magnificent but it gave off an ice-cold vibe.
“There’s one more matter…”
Senior Dan looked at Madam Sheng Yue before saying, “You still have an elder brother in the Dou family!”
