Chapter 65: Shame
Hearing irony in Murong Qingyan’s words, a suspicion in Murong Xiong’s mind hadn’t lessened one bit. He eyed her carefully. Although her looks hadn’t changed, he couldn’t help but have his doubts. After all, a person’s temper couldn’t change so drastically and so easily.
Sneering inside, Murong Qingyan looked him straight in the eyes, unwavering and unflinching.
She wasn’t worried what Murong Xiong thought, because, indeed, she was Murong Qingyan. After arriving in this different world, her soul became Murong Qingyan. She as Rong Qingyan had died, and from that moment on lived as Murong Qingyan.
“Are you really Murong Qingyan?” Murong Xiong asked again, this time exerting enormous pressure on her through his mystic powers.
Under his powerful force field, Murong Qingyan still showed no sign of backing down.
Seeing this happen Murong Xiong couldn’t help but be surprised. It should be said, that once he released his power, there was no one in the younger generation who could endure it. Even such a genius as Nangong Ye couldn’t withstand it.
However, this granddaughter of his, who was always regarded as a shame of the Murong family, accosted with the full brunt of his power showed no slightest sign of shrinking back. The only person who had been able to achieve this was his son, the one whose life and death was still uncertain, Murong Xizhao.
Reminiscing about the person that once was a proud son of the entire Murong family, Murong Xiong’s eyes flashed with a glimmer of nostalgia, and he withdrew the exhibited pressure.
Feeling the pressure on her suddenly being alleviated, Murong Qingyan showed no hint of relief, her expression was still as composed as before. “The family head still isn’t clear whether I’m really Murong Qingyan? I think if others wanted to impersonate someone, they wouldn’t choose to fake being a waste like me, would they?”
“It seems, in my Murong family the one who actually hides the deepest is you!” Murong Xiong glared at Qingyan with a glint of danger in his eyes. “Always thought you to be a waste, didn’t expect you to bury your heart intentions so deep, ah!”
Being confronted with Murong Qingyan’s deception, Murong Xiong felt discontent. He didn’t expect Murong Qingyan would dare to put such a show right under his nose, and for so long!
“Family head overpraises.” Acting as if Murong Xiong’s displeasure was of no concern to her, Murong Qingyan didn’t even bat an eyelash at his tantrum. “Even a rabbit will bite, once it’s cornered. Not to mention, that I’m no rabbit.”
“So you’re still planning on going to the competition?” Murong Xiong narrowed his eyes at her. “Do you think doing this has any meaning? Even if you go to the competition, all you’ll achieve is losing our Murong family’s face!”
“Family head looked for me because of this?” A sarcastic smirk once again hanged at the corners of her lips. “Even if I don’t go to the competition, won’t I still lose face of the Murong family? As long as I, Murong Qingyan, exist, I will be losing Murong’s family face. Is that not so, family head?”
“Murong Qingyan, you-!” Hearing Murong Qingyan’s words, Murong Xiong gnashed his teeth in hatred. If he could, he’d really love to strangle this girl to death right this moment! “Do you know what you are saying?”
“I know very well what I’ve said.” There was no trace of warmth in Murong Qingyan’s eyes. Only icy coldness was left. “Family head in his heart doesn’t think so?”
