Huai Rou Mu Yu

“What did you say?”

Su Yun was shocked, almost thinking that he heard wrong.

“I want you to disguise as me, that is the mission. Young Noble Su, it should not be difficult for you right?”

Nan Gong Qing’s expression turned solemn.

“Disguise as you?”

Su Yun took a deep breath, feeling hard to believe what he was hearing.

~Everything is all good, why the need for a disguise? Furthermore, I have the Shapeshift Bonepiece, changing into his looks is truly easy, but what does he really want?~

~This 200 thousand Cultivation Coins should not be so easily earned.~

“Sigh.” Nan Gong Qing sighed, a look of worry surfacing on his face: “Young Noble Su, in truth, it is a long story, I am forced to get someone to disguise as me.”

“Tell me about your situation first.” Su Yun said.

Nan Gong Qing nodded his head, and then started from the start.

“It is like this, very soon, the famous and prestigious trading family, the Huai Rou Family will be sending the Patriarch’s eldest daughter, Huai Rou Mu Yu over. The relationship between our Nan Gong Family and the Huai Rou Family are good and occasionally, marriages occur between both parties. This time, Huai Rou Mu Yu’s goal in coming is to get engaged to me. When I was in the fifth stage of the Spirit Soul Realm, Huai Rou Mu Yu was born, at that time, I did not know of the situation, thus my Father and Huai Rou Mu Yu’s grandfather had set the wedding matters, hoping that the two of us will become dual cultivation companions, but I do not hope for it, and hopes that Young Noble Su can help me.

“Is Huai Rou Mu Yu very ugly?”

“No, I heard that she resembles a fairy that can cause the downfall of cities.”

“Then is her cultivation so low that she is no compatible to be your companion?”

“The Huai Rou family comes from trade, their Patriarch is a powerful almighty being with never ending Cultivation Coins. Under that huge backing, Huai Rou Mu Yu’s cultivation is extremely strong and currently stands at the same level as me.”

“Then why are you not willing? A powerful and beautiful lady to be your companion, how many men are dreaming to be in your position?”

Su Yun revealed his puzzlement.

Nan Gong Qing sighed, he replied helplessly: “This heart of mine has long since fallen for another person, to not betray her, I do not wish to marry Huai Rou Mu Yu, thus I am looking for Young Noble Su’s help.”

Hearing that, Su Yun then understood, and was filled with respect towards Nan Gong Qing. It was normal for Spirit Cultivators to have three to four wives, and rarely was there a person who was wholeheartedly devoted to one person. He never expected Nan Gong Qing to actually reject the marriage with Huai Rou Mu Yu for his own heart, it was truly hard to come by.

Su Yun nodded his head and said: “Then isn’t it better for you to just explain everything to Huai Rou Mu Yu? The relation between your two families are good, it shouldn’t be a problem, right?”


“It isn’t as good as you think it is, Young Noble Su.” Nan Gong Qing sighed again: “Although the relation between both families have been good for a few generations, but the Huai Rou Family is a trading aristocratic family, with strength far stronger than my Nan Gong Family. If I were to publicly reject them, it will only cause them to be unhappy and affect the relationship between both families, I will become the guilty man of the Nan Gong Family and my family will never allow me to reject this, thus I have no choice but to do this.”

“Tell me your plan.”

“It is simple, Huai Rou Mu Yu has never seen me, and this time, I think she is coming to know more about me, so I want you to replace me and meet her, you are just a fifth stage Spirit Star Realm cultivator, Huai Rou Mu Yu will not be overly concerned with you, as long as you treat her colder, and deliberately make things more difficult for her, I think she will be unable to accept you. As long as she does not agree to the marriage, then the decision will lie with the Huai Rou family and I, Nan Gong Qing will be free from worries, no longer needing to bear the responsibility!”

“Young Master Nan Gong, do you think this is possible? Although she has never met you, but all the servants in the Nan Gong Family recognizes you, so how can I disguise as you? Unless you have some perfect disguising tool, if not I am afraid this plan will not work.”

The Shapeshift Bonepiece could disguise him perfectly, but Su Yun still hoped that Nan Gong Qing would be able to give him more insurance, because if anything were to happen, he would be offending both great families.

“You don’t have to worry about this at all, we will not even be using any treasures to disguise you. Huai Rou Mu Yu has countless of powerful treasures, if you were to disguise yourself, I am afraid she will see through it some way or another and that will lead to her being suspicious, so the best thing to do is for you to meet her with your real face. As for the people in the residence, you do not need to worry at all, as long as you do not leave my courtyard, it’ll be fine. The people here, the servants and maids are all my people, I have long kept them in the loop, and will act accordingly with me and you.”

Nan Gong Qing laughed.

“Then what if your brothers and sisters come and visit you? Or what if your parents come?”

“That won’t be a problem, my parents left to travel yesterday and will not be returning anytime soon, as for my siblings, whoever you can put off, just do it, if you can’t, then hide, my servants will let them know that their Young Master Qing is out, isn’t that fine?”

~For the daughter-in-law to come, why will his parents suddenly go out travelling? It must be him.~

Su Yun thought, then asked: “Your parents won’t be a problem, but I am afraid that your siblings will not be so easily taken care off right? If there is nobody in the house, won’t they sense something is off?”

“You’re right, my siblings are all rather powerful, your cultivation is insufficient and you cannot conceal your Spirit Qi, they can truly check it out.”

Nan Gong Qing scratched his chin and thought for a moment, his eyes suddenly lit up, he exhaled: “I got it.”

“What?”

“Follow me.”

Nan Gong Qing strode out of the door, and headed to the courtyard at the back.

Seeing that, Su Yun immediately followed.

Su Yun saw a small jungle behind the courtyard, which had a light decaying and methane smell which caused people to feel uncomfortable, in the center of the jungle was a green brick trail, with an array on every brick. Following the brick path, they walked until they arrived at a gigantic swamp. There, a broken down dispirited altar stood with a sculpture standing in front of it. The sculpture had the features of a man dressed in a gown and was holding a sword in his hand, his entire body was crushed, as though it had been through a lot.

It seemed as though no one had come to the altar for a very long time.

“This is the forbidden grounds of my Nan Gong Family, provided that people come and barge into the courtyard, run here, and hide in this place, the Spirit Qi here will conceal you, and you will be fine.”

“I got it.” Su Yun nodded.

“Actually, our Nan Gong Family members are not allowed here, but since you’re not considered part of us, it is fine for you to come here. Alright, Young Noble Su, I will have to depend on you for everything, when everything is over, I will give you 200 thousand Cultivation Coins, if you fail, I will still pay you 100 thousand cultivation coins, but I hope that you can give it your all.”

“I will do my best.” Su Yun laughed.

“Next, I will teach you a few rules of the Nan Gong Family and the things that you need to pay attention to. Tonight, I will go to my companion’s place, I will not come back for the entire duration that you are handling Huai Rou Mu Yu, if there is any situation, call out for the maid called Xiao Cui, she will contact me as she knows where I am.”

Nan Gong Qing said.

“Alright.”

On the second day, at the big doors of Nan Gong Residence, troops stayed in neat formation, the various bizarre formations on the door showcased a splendor of beauty, awaiting for the convoy that was in the distance which had a gigantic golden sheep like animal that carried a carriage and walked, by the sides of the carriage were many luxuriously dressed stern looking people, none of them had cultivations beneath the tenth stage of the Spirit Star Realm.

Gongs and drums filled the air, beautiful flower petals floated in the sky, flickering light auras covered the skies, making them look like immortals.

People on the street who saw them all stopped in their tracks and raised their heads up to look.

“Who is that? Such vigor!”

“Can’t you see the word on the carriage? Huai Rou! They are the Huai Rou Family.”

“Huai Rou Family? That big trading family? What are they doing here in the Sky Central City?”

“Most likely for the Nan Gong Family, both families have a good relations, but I do not know why they are here this time.”

All the passersby talked amongst themselves, some of them for the sake of finding out why, followed the carriage towards the Nan Gong Family.

“Come, quickly play some music.”

A middle aged man spoke to the men beside him, and then led a few higher ups of Nan Gong residence towards the gigantic golden sheep.

Nearing the golden sheep, the middle aged man cupped his fists and smiled: “Greetings and welcome, Young Miss Mu Yu, welcome to my Nan Gong Residence! I am Nan Gong Hu and am here in place of my elder brothers and elder sisters to welcome young miss.”

Upon speaking, the golden sheep stopped, the gigantic figure slowly lowered down to the residence and crawled on the ground, the people by the carriage all walked forward and knelt down in rows in front of the carriage.

The carriage slowly opened, a fragrant scent came out, a figure walked out of the carriage and landed on the ground.

Upon appearing, gasps occurred from everywhere.

Her skin was like a painting, her lips look like petals, her hair draped downwards like a waterfall, she was exquisite, how could there be such a beauty that exists?

“So beautiful.”

“I-is that the Huai Rou Family Patriarch’s daughter? Young Miss Huai Rou Mu Yu?”

“How can there be such a good looking person in the world?”

“Humph, she’s not that good looking!” A female cultivator said in envy.

“But come to think of it, what is Huai Rou Mu Yu doing here?”

“She shouldn’t be here to play right? There’s nothing much here?”

“I think they are here for personal matters, the Huai Rou Family and Nan Gong family have marriage ties, this shouldn’t be an exception, from what I can tell, this Huai Rou Mu Yu is extremely powerful, she is extremely opinionated as well, she might not be old, but her cultivation is very high and she has participated in her family business operations, and made her own successes, the Huai Rou family sees her in high regard, maybe she is here this time to meet her future dual cultivation companion.”

“Heh, she is so brazen, if it was any other female cultivators, it might not be like this.”

“That’s why I said that she is different from the others.”

The people by the road all talked fervently, the clamors were incessant, of course, more of them were intoxicated in Huai Rou Mu Yu’s beauty and even Nan Gong Hu and a few other higher ups were out of their senses, but they were after all, still seniors, so even while they were out of sorts, they were not like the people by the side, and had long escaped the commotion.”

“I never thought that Uncle Nan Gong Hu will personally come and welcome us, Mu Yu is ashamed, please accept this bow of Mu Yu’s.”

Huai Rou Mu Yu spoke gently, she walked to Nan Gong Hu and curtsied.

“Young miss Mu Yu is too courteous, this isn’t much, it is our norm to treat people with respect.”

Nan Gong Hu laughed, a look of admiration flashed in his eyes.

“Why do I not see Uncle Du Huo and Aunt Zhang?” Huai Rou Mu Yu looked around and asked.

“Sigh, the time was not right, Uncle and Aunt went to settle some urgent matters, and are unable to come receive you, I am helpless with that matter, I hope that Young Miss will not blame them.”

“How can I blame them? I can understand it, Uncle Hu, you don’t have to call me young miss, just call me Mu Yu.” Huai Rou Mu Yu’s voice was gentle, but when she spoke these words, it was not to joke about.

Nan Gong Hu nodded his head, the admiration in his eyes became even deeper.

Just then, Huai Rou Mu Yu glanced around, and her eyes landed on a handsome young man dressed in brown robes, she walked over and curtsied, and said: “Is this my future husband Nan Gong Qing? Mu Yu greets Young Master Nan Gong.”

“Ah?” The man was startled for a moment, he immediately shook his head and smiled warmly: “Young Miss Mu Yu have mistaken me, I am not my second brother, I am Nan Gong Gu, not Nan Gong Qing.”

He might have said that, but his eyes was brimming with passion and emotions that were hard to conceal.

“Oh, I see, My apologies.” Huai Rou Mu Yu nodded her head, she then asked: “Then can I ask? Where is Nan Gong Qing?”
