Into the World of Medicine

IWM, c94.8

“Murong Qingyan, are you threatening me?” How could Murong Xiong not understand the meaning of Murong Qingyan’s words!

If he forced Murong Qingyan to go to Nangong family, when the time came Murong Qingyan not only wouldn’t apologize to them, but she would make sure that the relationship between families became even worse!

“I’ve merely stated a fact, nothing more!,” Murong Qingyan’s calm reply was a stark contrast to Murong Xiong’s escalating anger: “That’s why I’m asking Family Head to think twice.”

“Murong Qingyan, are you trying to defy my orders?” Murong Xiong narrowed his eyes, glaring fiercely at Murong Qingyan: “Do you know consequences of defying Family Head’s orders? What punishment awaits those people?”

“Of course, I know,” Murong Qingyan laughed coldly and replied: “In Murong family defying orders of the Master of Family is equal to disrespecting him and, therefore, that person can be expelled from the Family. So…”

Murong Qingyan raised her head and looked straight at Murong Xiong, saying: “Is Family Head going to drive me out of the Family?”

Such threats couldn’t scare Murong Qingyan. She had just won the Clan Assembly and even defeated Nangong Ye in the finals: that was something that the whole Galuo by now knew. If Murong Xiong really wanted to expel her, that would only make Murong Family a laughingstock throughout the country.

Moreover, due to the title of the First Family that she brought back to the Family, she knew, Murong Xiong couldn’t afford such move.

Besides, even if Murong Xiong expelled her, she wouldn’t worry. In the first place, she was set on leaving the Family after the Clan Assembly, so even if he didn’t expel her, she would still leave after some time. She was sure that leaving Murong Family would never be a loss to her.

“You-!” Murong Xiong pointed at Murong Qingyan, his whole person was trembling in anger, and even more so, seeing her self-possessed appearance, he didn’t feel good.

That’s right. There was no way for him to expel her because if he did so, it would inevitably harm the Family. If Murong Qingyan left, it would a be a huge blow for them. But it was that self-assured manner of Murong Qingyan that he found most infuriating to swallow.

In the end, he bellowed: “Murong Qingyan, you get out of here!”

He was afraid if he had to face her any longer, he would be unable to control himself and kill right then and there.

“Since Family Head said so, I won’t disturb your rest any longer,” Murong Qingyan stood up unhurriedly, patted her dress and leisurely walked out of the study.

Left alone in the study, Murong Xiong was struggling to breathe, his chest kept puffing. The entire person was about to faint. He had never imagined Murong Qingyan would disobey him so stubbornly and even dare to threaten him.

It seemed he was right. Even though Murong Qingyan had won the competition, she couldn’t be used by the Family. If such person stayed in the Family, was it a blessing or a curse?

Thinking thus, Murong Xiong’s eyes flashed with a gloomy light. When the day came and Murong Qingyan became a threat to the Family, he wouldn’t show her mercy.

Nobody in the Family knew what had happened in the study, but many of them heard Murong Xiong’s bellow. So everyone thought that Murong Qingyan annoyed him and made him unhappy.

And sure enough, there were no changes in the treatment of Murong Qingyan. Logically speaking, since she won in the Clan Assembly and brought the glory to the Family, her status in the Family should have risen accordingly, yet, nothing changed neither in her status nor in the treatment.

      I don’t think so, they stopped bullying her when she gained strength. She’ll just receive almost no money and no cultivation resources if I’m correct.

    Can we get back to HFJ? I miss him already. I just hope it’s not another 70+ chapters before they met again.

    “Murong Qingyan, are you trying to defy my orders?” Murong Xiong narrowed his eyes, glaring fiercely at Murong Qingyan: “Do you know consequences of defying Family Head’s orders? What punishment?’s for those people?” <=== "Murong Qingyan, are you trying to defy my orders?" Murong Xiong narrowed his eyes, glaring fiercely at Murong Qingyan. "Do you know the consequences of defying Family Head's orders? What the punishments would be for those people?"

    It seemed that he was right. Even if Murong Qingyan had won the competition, she couldn’t be used for the Family. If such person stayed in the Family, was it a blessing or a curse? <=== It seemed that he was right. Even if Murong Qingyan had won the competition, she couldn't be of any use to the Family. If such a person stayed in the Family, was it a blessing or a curse?

    I hope those sentences are what you were trying to convey.

    And we're back to square one with the Murong family idiots. Are they even related? Methinks that Qingyan is the odd one out. Aside from getting into a headbutt with the family head, there's still that half(?)-sister of hers, Qingxue, who we all know, won't stay quietly in a corner. Geh!

    Thanks for the chapter, Agnie!

      Ahhh, my dear Reader4Fun! You’re the best as always! Not only picked them, but took time to correct ’em! Thaaaaank you!! *smitten*
      Yes, they were! I’ve corrected the first (the less mouthful the better, the whole chapter is one big tongue breaker, hehe).
      As for the 2nd… hehehe, do you mind shedding some light on my mental torture? It’s about ‘of use to’, ‘used for’ and ‘used by’. Murong Xiong thinks in terms of benefit&losses for the Family, so family members are mere tools, successful or trash. So, imo, ‘of use to’ is too mild, while ‘used by’ is a bit too much, so I settled with ‘used for’ (and missed ‘the sake of the family’), because rephrasing led me to a severe tl-block. Now I’m not sure (mouthfuls are hate!). Boohooo. What do you think, m? I’ll correct it asap.
      Ttyt, I got no idea, whether she’s related to them, but there are indeed as-holish families out there. So we’ll have to wait…and wait…and still wait… Light spoiler ahead, read at your own discretion: What I do know (thanks to the unlucky tumble into Spoiler topic for IWM) that soon we would want to bash that family and especially this grandpa with half(?)-sister not just with rotten eggs. Meh. Good thing is that we (relatively) soon follow MQY to her college…and on the way there will be HFJ, fufufu. End of a light spoiler.

        Yikes. I’m no grammar expert myself, but I’ll try. The sentence just kind of confused me a bit because in novels I always come across the words “so-and-so is of use to so-and-so” rather than “be used for”, especially when they’re trying to say that somebody/something is useful to somebody/something. For example: This information may be of use to him. If the original raw is trying to say that Qingyan has doesn’t have uses anymore, meaning she’s no longer the Murong family’s puppet, then this sentence: “Even if Murong Qingyan had won the competition, she couldn’t be used for the Family”, try changing “used for” to “used by” to mean that Murong Qingyan can no longer ‘be taken advantage of’ or ‘manipulated by the Murong family’. Did I explain it well? Forgive me for being presumptious. Eeek! *Hides under a large boulder* I tried trolling the internet to help me navigate through the wonderful world of English grammar (that is laced with a lot of doses of sarcasm there), but Jeezus… the internet did not help at all. Gah!

          Haha, yeah, my point exactly, lol. Yep, we think along the same lines, your explanation is great~ I considered ‘used by’ and, guess, will indeed use it in the end, sigh. But, gosh, I unknowingly forced you into the deep jungles of the Internet! *Yikes, indeed Meishsorry >_< Sorry for the trouble >_< But with the two minds it feels sooooo muuuuch better~ so Thaaaaaank you~~ muah~~ (wanna get a glimpse of the new novel? ^.~)

          • iRead4Fun

            No worries. It actually helped me a little. My English teachers all my school years would be ashamed of how bad my English grammar had become since we’ve become accustomed to ‘text talk’ or ‘internet acronym’. Geh! And oh! What’s this new novel you’re talking about, hm? XD

    This family head is a real idiot. Instead of cherishing her and trying to do his best to improved their relationships, but still the same. Thanks for this part.

    She’s going to leave the family before anything befalls her. After all, she doesn’t need them to survive compared to them needing her.
