I normally say that I like Past Life Returner but I have not read it at all, not even the manhwa(comic). But this story is different, I love it. I...
The Abnormal Sect Leader
“Miss, are you really going to marry Mojiao sect’s sect leader?” Lu’er asked.
“He is going to marry me.”
“Fine, he is going to marry you.” Lu’er suddenly felt so speechless that she flipped her eyeballs, “But, Mojiao sect’s sect leader… has a bad reputation.”
“Hmm.” Murong Yun Shu grimly nodded her head and said. “I should hurry up and get married.”
“……” Murong Yun Shu’s logic had suddenly jumped too far for Lu’er that couldn’t even understand her. She tried to emphasize again: “Miss, your betrothed is Mojiao sect’s sect leader, he is the sect’s leader!”
“He is the sect’s leader!” Doesn’t miss know that Mojiao Sect was the biggest opposition against the underworld?
“Fang Hongfei is Mingjian Sect’s young leader.”
Lu’er stood blankly for a while, and soon she suddenly understood something: “Miss, are you implying that not everyone from Mojiao sect is bad and not everyone from Mingjian Sect is good?”
“Yes” Murong Yun Shu nodded her head.
Although Murong Yun Shu wasn’t involved with the underworld, she did have some knowledge of it. As an outsider, she could see through the underworld. Prestigious sects weren’t always bright and upright, while the Mojiao sect wasn’t all about doing immoral things.
As far as she knew so far about the Mojiao Sect’s leader, Chu Changge was known as being ruthless and powerful. Even the martial arts leaders and the Taoist leaders weren’t his opponent. Many people wanted to challenge him but nobody dared to.
Why would such a powerful man like him want to marry her?
For money? If it was before, then there could be a possibility, but now……Murong house doesn’t have any valuable treasure that would attract people.
For status? For other people, it could be considered, but for Chu Changge……Even if he were to be married to a celestial, his reputation wouldn’t get any better.
For her beauty?
Murong Yun Shu’s face suddenly turned red, she felt so shy in her heart until she hoped she could cover her face in the dust. Chu Changge had never seen her face before, how is it possible……
“Miss, did you drop something? I’ll help you find it.”
Murong Yun Shu immediately felt awkward with a 囧 expression on her face, her face got warm and she walked back to her room and said: “I lost an earring, if you could find it, then it’s yours.” As she walked further, she could still hear Lu’er mumbled confusedly at the back: “Where can it be?”
Murong Yun Shu smiled, and felt blessed to have a dummy for a maid.
Mount Heifeng, Windward Courtyard.
“Marry into Murong Sect?”
Chu Changge burst into laughter. “This is the biggest joke in the world.” Chu Changge he himself wasn’t incapable of marrying a wife, why would he marry into her house?!
“Madam said Murong Sect’s maidens don’t marry into any households, so the only choice is to let our Mojiao leader marry into Murong Sect.” North Guardian shrugged his shoulder and said.
“She doesn’t want to marry?” Chu Changge’s expression turned dark, his voice was as cold as frost. “Why?”
Chu Changge flipped his face faster than flipping a book. North Guardian took two steps away, just in case his life wasn’t in danger: “Madam only said that she won’t marry Mojiao Sect, she didn’t say you can’t marry into Murong House, nor was she barring you from sleeping in her bed.”
North Guardian continued talking: “It’s a good thing, since you don’t have to pay for betrothal gifts……”
“She did not receive the betrothal gifts?” Chu Changge frowned his eyebrows tightly, and asked strictly: “What was my instruction before I asked you to set out?”
East Guardian immediately replied: “Make Murong Yunshu accept the betrothal gifts.”
“In the end?”
“In the end…… She didn’t accept…… But actually, she didn’t really refuse it. I shall go for another visit now……”
“No need.” Chu Changge interrupted his talk, his eyebrow frowned tightly and gently knocked on the table with a rhythm. Suddenly, his lips moved and his handsome face showed up with a charming smile. “Immediately prepare the betrothal gifts.”
That face of his looked like he was a purely innocent man, but his smile actually signified that danger was coming. The East, South, West, and North guardians recognized their leader’s deadly smile and shivered, they consciously stepped back together in sync.
Four of the guardians wanted to tell their leaders to wait for Murong House’s dowry to arrive, because it still wasn’t too late for them to prepare the betrothal gifts then. However, when they saw Chu Changge’s evil smile, all of their courage to defy his command melted away.
Isn’t it just a betrothal gift? Our Mojiao Sect has a lot of money. The four guardians had a thought that even if the sky were to fall, there will always be money to support them. They suddenly felt relaxed with the turn of their thoughts.
“Leader, what sort of betrothal gifts do you want us to prepare?”
Chu Changge thought for a while and asked: “Ever heard of ten miles of red betrothal gifts?”
“We’ve heard about it before.”
“Take that as the standard.”
Walking out from the Windward Courtyard, all four guardians were in silence.
After some time, North Guardian could not stand it anymore and said: “Do you think our leader is acting strange today?”
“I completely agree.” South Guardian nodded his head heavily. “We turned him into a groom marrying into Murong Sect, but he didn’t lose his temper. He was angry when he heard we took back the betrothal gifts. The weirdest part is, after he lost his temper, he did not do anything to us nor punish us.”
“What’s so weird about that? Didn’t you know all along that our leader is abnormal?” West Guardian didn’t have much of a reaction.
North Guardian nodded as if he understood something, and soon he asked: “Do you think our leader was born naturally predisposed to be abnormal?”
“…… It is possible that he acquired it through his childhood, since his whole family is abnormal.”
“You are right.”
East Guardian stared at his brothers and said: “You guys should worry about preparing the betrothal gifts instead.”
“It’s only ten miles of red betrothal gifts, that would be easy to prepare.”
“That’s right, our Mojiao Sect has so many people and power, don’t say ten miles, even a hundred or a thousand miles is possible.”
“But the red betrothal gifts look weird to me, if it were black or white betrothal gifts, then it would look better.”
“Do you think we’re preparing funeral gifts?! Our leader is getting married. Of course we have to prepare red betrothal gifts!”
“…….” East Guardian was speechless, looking at his three brothers: “Our leader is not even here, who are you guys acting dumb for?”
“Hehe.” The other three guardians smirked, and said in sync: “Let’s us go and prepare the ten miles of red betrothal gifts.”
East Guardian helplessly took a deep sigh, he hoped his leader wouldn’t blame them for making jokes about his marriage, he had no choice since he was surrounded by a bunch of dummies in this Mojiao Sect.
In the meantime, inside the Windward Courtyard, Chu Changge was listening to Xiang You and Yang Zuo reporting about the upcoming martial arts world tournament that was to be held on the fifteenth of August.
After the report, Xiang You was worried and asked: “Leader, I don’t think those four guardians are suitable to take on the job of preparing the betrothal gifts.”
“That’s right. Although the East, South, West, and North guardians are powerful men, their intelligence is a cause for concern.” Yang Zuo agreed with Xiang You.
“Which is why I let them prepare the betrothal gifts.” Chu Changge smiled but looked as if he was not.
“Did you already predict what kind of betrothal gifts they will prepare?”
Chu Changge shook his head, he excitedly said with a smile: “I’m anticipating the mess they’ll make.”
Xiang You and Yang Zuo were both made speechless by their leader, it seems their leader wanted them to ruin the betrothal gifts. Was that the main reason why he asked the four guardians to prepare the gifts?
Indeed, Chu Changge had his leader personality. Everything he did was weird and can’t be understood by normal people.
Chu Changge looked far at the mountain, as if he was thinking of something. His elegant eyebrows made him look optimistic, his long hair flowed with the wind of antiquity. If the Mojiao Sect’s disciples didn’t know about his evil personality, they would have mistaken him for an immortal.
