Chapter 164: To Offer an Apology
Cheng Qingfeng couldn’t keep a stable footing as he tumbles to the floor.
Mommy! What did he hear just now?
Miss Jun, sh-she-she… she ruined Ghost City?!
How is this possible?!
That’s the Ghost City a! There’s only one of it in the whole Chi Yan Country, and there several Precelestial experts in the Ghost City!
Miss Jun actually ruined it?!
Hearing Muyan’s words, Xia Yi forces a smile, “Miss Jun must be joking, that matter from the other day was my Ghost City’s fault. Even if Miss Jun had… had ruined it, then that is also a result of courting punishment.”
Muyan gives a smile that isn’t a smile as she says: “Oh? If you’re not seeking retribution, why have you come with such a big party today?”
“As I said, our Ghost City have come to offer an apology today.”
Xia Yi grits his teeth and waves his hand.
Ru Yan and Old Tao promptly step forward, then respectfully kneel down towards Muyan, “Greeting the master!”
Following closely, the dozens of fierce fiend-like slaves come to kneel down as well. They shout out uncoordinatedly, “Greeting the master!”
Muyan quirks up her brows, “What did you call me?”
Ru Yan lifts up her head, her pair of beautiful eyes fix themselves on Muyan. She says one word at a time: “Ru Yan is willing leave the Ghost City to follow the master, and if there’s disloyalty hereafter, let heaven and earth not tolerate it.”
Old Tao raises his head as well, exclaiming with a rough voice: “I, Old Tao, also requested to leave the Ghost City. Following that, I will be the Master’s person. Asking the Master not disregard Old Tao for my being uncouth!”
Those dozens of slaves don’t say anything, but each one of them secretly send glances towards Muyan, trying to measure her up.
Muyan looks at Xia Yi instead, “What do you mean by this, Ghost King Xia?”
“These people are Ghost City’s gifts to apologize to Miss Jun.” Xia Yi straightens himself and says in a dignified manner, “I hope that all the previous conflicts with the Ghost City would end here today. What does Miss Jun think?”
As he says these, Xia Yi’s heart is bleeding.
The losses of Xia’an’s Ghost City is really too big this time.
It’s practically a complete wipe-out.
To say nothing of all the treasures looted by Muyan, several infrastructures were destroyed; and the slaves of Wan Ren Ku, as well as the beasts of the Beast Fighting Colosseum – most of them had escaped.
The most heartbreaking part is still those five Magistrates. Five Precelestial powerhouses died, not one of them remain.
For the Ghost City to cultivate one Precelestial expert, just how many draughts and resources does it take?
But as it turns out, not only is he unable to hold Muyan accountable, he still has to send some people to Muyan as an apology.
He can only hope that this great aunt will overlook that event in Ghost City, and won’t try to find trouble with them again after this.
Otherwise, Xia Yi really doesn’t know what miserable state would that dreadful man reduce the Ghost City into.
Muyan gives it some thought, then she looks at Ru Yan and the others, before finally turning to Xia Yi. She faintly smiles and says, “Alright, then I would like to thank Ghost King Xia and the Ghost City for your kindness.”
After the handover, Xia Yi turns to take his leave.
Muyan makes Ru Yan and Old Tao get up. She slowly asks: “After I lost consciousness that day, what happened in the Ghost City? You narrate it systematically and in full.”
Ru Yan and Old Tao didn’t dare to hold anything back, they quickly and briefly recounted everything that happened that day.
After listening, Muyan is somewhat stumped.
So it turns out that that person made such a huge fire because of her? Even going so far for her?
“Master, would us staying here be a burden to you?” Ru Yan very carefully asks.
Muyan softly chuckles: “Don’t call me Master… aren’t you all tired? You should be, since you just arrived.”
