She wanted to show a stark contrast against Huang Yueli, that immature and inexperienced, wilful and proud lass, letting Li Moying knew that only a mature and elegant refined lady like her was worthy of him!
Hence, whenever she had time, she would bring the medicinal soup and herbs that she made to the rear mountain’s courtyard where Li Moying was staying.
However, no matter how diligent Murong Fei was, Li Moying refused to meet her even once.
The person who appeared in front of her was always the expressionless Mo Yi, or Mo Er who spoke in an eccentric tone and either one of them could make her die of anger.
Li Moying was in fact, totally unaware of how bustling it was outside.
Ever since he returned to Celestial Light Sect, he shut himself in his courtyard and went into closed door cultivation.
Breaking up with Li’er had made his world turn grey and no matter what he did, he wasn’t able to lift his spirits up.
The images of Huang Yueli’s usual expression while she was with him kept popping out in his mind and every single time he thought of the cunning look with her pointed teeth when she laughed, his heart felt a pang of throbbing pain.
Under this circumstance, only cultivation could made him forget this kind of pain momentarily.
So every day he refused to meet anyone and chose to shut himself in his courtyard to cultivate. Even his Shadow Guards had not seen him for three days already.
Today, a figure shot from the front mountain towards the rear mountain but even after he reached Li Moying’s courtyard, his footsteps didn’t stop and continued to rush inside while shouting, “Young Sect Master, something’s up, something bad has happened!”
Mo Yi frowned as he went up to welcome that person, “Who is it who dares to barge into Young Sect Master’s closed door cultivation location?”
Saying that, he took a look and immediately recognised that person, “Principal Jiang? Why have you come here?”
Jiang Tuxin panted heavily as he clutched his chest and his head full of white hair was all drenched with sweat and he was gasping for his breathe as he said, “Protector…. Mo, where is Young Sect Master? I have an important news that I need to tell him right now!”
Mo Yi replied, “Principal Jiang, you came at the wrong time. Ever since Master returned to the Sect, he announced that he was going into closed door cultivation and he would take at least three to five months before he’s out…..”
“Oh no, what should I do! I’m really worried, something happened to Bai Ruoli!” Jiang Tuxin’s brows creased as he looked completely at a loss.
When Mo Er heard that name, he immediately got excited as he rushed forward their faces.
“Principal Jiang, you say….. you’re worried something has happened to Third Miss Bai What’s the matter with her?”
Jiang Tuxin heaved a sigh and said, “You don’t know, ever since the day Young Sect Master and Eldest Young Miss left Celestial Light Academy, Bai Ruoli also disappeared! Young Sect Master had repeatedly urged me to take good care of Miss Bai before he left so I would send someone to take a look at her three days ago, only to discover that she had already been missing for several days! Furthermore, the day she left the academy was the next day after you all left!”
Mo Yi and Mo Er exchanged glances as they saw the pleasantly surprised expression in each other’s eyes.
Mo Yi gave a cough and said, “Principal Jiang, you need not be overly worried, I’m guessing…. Third Miss should be chasing after my Master? Although both of them quarrelled, but their feelings remain the same so this is very normal. Third Miss’s cultivation isn’t very high and she doesn’t have access to a flying ship so for her to come over to Celestial Light Sect, she’s at least need five to six days time, so probably she’s still on the way here!”
Mo Er also chipped in, “Isn’t that do? Master is almost going crazy from the things he does for Third Miss! He will definitely be very happy when he hears about this news! I will go and report this to Master right now!”

The two of them spun around to pass the information.
Jiang Tuxin hurriedly called out to stop them.
“Please wait a moment, both of you!”
Mo Yi and Mo Er turned back as they looked at him puzzledly.
Jiang Yuxin hurriedly said, “Things are not what you think it is! Bai Ruoli had likely gotten into trouble!”
“What??” Both of them cried out in shock as their expressions were filled with astonishment.
Mo Yi was in a rush to ask what had happened clearly but before he could even speak, the courtyard door was suddenly opened from the inside.
“You say… what happened to Li’er?” A deep, hoarse voice was heard from behind the trio.
The three of them were shocked as they were startled at Li Moying’s sudden appearance.
“Master, why are you out?”
“My respects to Master!”
Mo Yi and Mo Er made their salutations one after another whereas Jiang Tuxin went into a daze as he looked in astonishment at the man in front of him.
If it hadn’t been for the fact that he recognised his voice and with Mo Yi and Mo Er by the side as a witness, he almost couldn’t recognise that the slovenly dressed and absentminded man, who was usually suave and peerlessly handsome, was the Young Sect Master Li Moying!
Li Moying’s face as exceptionally pale and his hair was scattered messily by the side of his face. There were black patches under his eyes but even though he seemed to be in a despondent state, he still bore the usual indescribable overbearing imposing manner which was enough to attract any woman’s gaze.
“Young… Young Sect Master…”
Li Moying walked over and stood in front of Jiang Tuxin as a cold glint flashed past his eyes, “What did you say earlier? Li’er she….. something happened to her? What exactly happened to her? Before I left, haven’t I asked you to take good care of her? How long has it been only and something had happened to her? Tell me clearly right now!”
Mo Yi looked at Li Moying’s agitated look and amidst worries, there were also some signs of emotion.
Master still denied that the both of them had no more relationship and didn’t even look back as he ran back to Celestial Light Sect, in the end? Just based on his reaction, if he could really let go of Third Miss, something really was wrong!
Jiang Tuxin continued ashamedly, “I…. have let you down. That day after you left, I’d sent a number of people to take care of Miss Bai but she said she wanted to go into closed door cultivation to recuperate and shut everyone outside whereas she slipped away! I’d only discovered this two days ago and thought she came to look for you in Celestial Light Sect so I sent a few bodyguards, thinking to chase up to her and send her here. But the bodyguards followed the path here and searched for a long time but they weren’t able to find anyone at all! Instead…. They heard a rumour…..”
Li Moying’s voice was extremely peaceful but those who knew him well knew clearly that he was the kind whom would become more and more calm as he got angrier and now he was already on the verge of acting up.
Jiang Tuxin’s sweat drenched his entire back but he didn’t dare to raise his head.
“Yes…. A group of Jade Wind Merchant Guild merchants were on the way to West Sky Region to do some business and someone said that a few days ago, they met a young lady who was around fourteen or fifteen. From their description, she sounds very similar to Miss Bai and that young lady wanted to follow them to Celestial Light Sect but midway on the road here, a mysterious man dressed in a hood suddenly appeared, pointing her out. That young lady didn’t want to implicate them so she immediately appeared and lured the mysterious man away.”
Li Moying’s brows knitted tightly together.
Jiang Tuxin nodded, “I heard that this mysterious man’s cultivation is very high and that young lady totally wasn’t his match so she kept escaping…. Later on, the both of them disappeared and even the Merchant Guild didn’t know…. where they went to…..”
