She only said so because she was extremely confident about her looks.
“Exactly, the Saintess, humph. We must see how she prove herself to the public during the ceremony. If the chance arises, I will be the first to challenge her!”
This was added by the Shang Qiu Clan’s Shang Qiu Yan, a slender and petite lady who possessed a carefree, straightforward and energetic personality.
Although during usual times, she was not on close terms with Shangguan Lian Lian.
She possessed a heroic look and lack the seductive qualities of Shangguan Lian Lian; however, she possessed the highest cultivation levels amongst the girls present.
There were two other young ladies, Tuoba Yu’er from the Tuoba Clan, the other was Mu Rong Xin Ruo of the Mu Rong Clan.
Tuoba Yu’er had a dignified and composed image.
She was holding on to Mu Rong Xin Ruo’s hand, showing that they were extremely close, “You girls should stop talking, it can’t be help that she possessed the Luan Spirit Treasure and we don’t have it. She had been internally selected as Young Master Ya’s a long time ago, no point being jealous about it.”
They were actually not jealous of Bai Li Zi Xi getting the title of Saintess, but rather that she possessed a cheap advantage because of her innate spirit treasure; hence they were unwilling to be convinced.
Mu Rong Xin Ruo stood at the side with a faint smile on her face and quietly listened to them.
Tuoba Yu’er covered her mouth and snickered, “Look at that, none of us are as calm as Elder Sister Xin Ruo. Let’s stop talking about Bai Li Zi Xi, rumor has it that Young Master Ya was seduced by some village demoness outside; he had brought her with him and is showering her with adoration… have you all heard about it?”
How could they not know?
Who wasn’t observing each and every action of Young Master Ya?
For the sake of one woman, he had changed his methods and style of doing things, adopting vicious methods. Now, rumors have been going around that the celestial gentlemanly young master has changed.
Causing many people to be apprehensive towards him.
Shangguan Lian Lian immediately tore her handkerchief into pieces, “Rumor has it that she is a fool?”
Shang Qiu Yan said disdainfully, “It seems that she had seduced him when he visited Hanging Cloud Empire, turning into a fool is heaven’s punishment. A lowly girl like her is only worth carrying the shoes of Young Master Ya. She deserved being punished by the heavens.”
Touba Yu’er sighed and turned towards Mu Rong Xin Ruo, “Let’s stop talking about it. I only felt sorry for Elder Sister Xin Ruo, sister grew up with Young Master Ya, but despite their years of relationship, the first concubine is given to some wild village girl instead of sister… Ai!”
Mu Rong Xin Ruo’s face paled slightly and replied, “She comes from a great family of the Hanging Cloud Empire and also possessed high star talent. You girls should stop calling her wild village girl every time. The person the cousin likes is also someone I like as well.”
Her tone was filled with the intent of protection.
Tuoba Yu’er’s attempt of sowing discord has failed; the girls looked at Mu Rong Xin Ruo with expression of fondness mixed with that of contempt.
What they were fond about was that with Mu Rong Xin Ruo’s meek character, even with the advantage she has of growing up with Young Master Ya, they would not have to worried about Mu Rong Xin Ruo when they become his concubines. They can just focus on guarding against the main wife, Bai Li Zi Xi.
Contempt because, she had wasted the natural position of being his cousin, possessing none of the powerful character of a Mu Rong lady. The ladies of the Mu Rong Clan had always been more domineering than their men. Yet Mu Rong Xin Ruo was born with a soft character, always seeking to accommodate others.
“Kekeke, your character is always the best Xin Ruo, we cannot hope to be like you, we are just feeling injustice about what is happening to you…”
