Leng Wushuang trembled in fear and said nothing further.
Lan Yue looked at her fiercely. "I will now give you one more chance. You'd better tell the truth and stop imitating."
His tone was ice-cold. He said it very firmly, so Leng Wushung dared not risk her entire family's life to continue her show. Hence, she answered reluctantly, "Maybe Maybe what you said is true, but I am not quite sure." She had just admitted her own deed indirectly.
Yan Chen's mother was not expecting this. Gu Xijiu gave her a sarcastic smile. "Mrs. Yan, what do you think?"
Yan Chen's mother was extremely disappointed. However, she did not wish to reveal it in front of so many people. Therefore, she answered reluctantly, "Even if Wushuang Even if she is not of Blue Fox descent, at least her family background is decent, one of the most notable and distinguished. Certainly, our families are a perfect match."
Leng Wushuang added, "My family is a decent family. My grandfather was once a general." She threw Lan Waihu a glance and continued contemptuously, "About this, she is totally incomparable! Her mother ran away with another man. Her father may possibly be a dreadful lowlife."
Snapped, Lan Yue fetched her a terrific slap on her face. "How dare you!" In disbelief, she took a few steps backward. "You You slapped me."
Lan Yue gave her a sharp look in the eye. "She is the daughter of our National Master! Even the King of Blue Fox clan pays respect to our National Master. How dare you insult him by calling him a lowlife!"
His words came as an utter surprise to everyone except Gu Xijiu and Lan Waihu, who were already well-informed.
Yan Chen's mother was shocked. She stood abruptly in disbelief. "Wh What?"
Lan Yue answered with great pleasure, "Lan Waihu is the only daughter of our National Master, Lan Yunqing. Her bloodline is the purest of the Blue Fox descent! Miss Leng, you are, unfortunately, not related to Blue Fox family at all. Although your grandmother was once a maiden of the royal family, her relationship with the Blue Fox clan belonged to the lowest class. This is completely beyond comparison. Not only you, even your grandmother would have to kneel before Lan Waihu and honor her respectfully."
Leng Wushuang and Yan Chen's mother were downright embarrassed, looking completely disappointed.
Leng Wushuang screamed out loud, "I don't believe it! It is impossible!"
"It is not possible. My husband gave her a test, and it clearly showed that she was unrelated to any members of the Blue Fox family. Children of Blue Fox descent will occasionally transform themselves when they reach the age of five or six. However, Lan Waihu did not transform, not even once. You Are you trying to confuse us all? It is impossible."
Lan Yue gave her a smirk. "Those children, whose bloodline are not genuinely noble, will start to transform when they are still at a tender age. It seems like both you and your husband know a thing or two about the family of Blue Fox. However, the bloodline from National Master Lan is far more superior. His next-of-kin can only transform when his or her spiritual power reaches level nine and above. Once the transfiguration is successful, he or she will obtain superpowers that will allow him or her to explore the world freely and to predict the Heaven's Secret . Only the man or woman with the aforementioned bloodline will take over the duty as our National Master."
"Barring unforeseen circumstances, Lan Waihu will be the next National Master of our family. Her status is very honorable. How dare someone so inferior like you compare yourself to her?"
The people did not expect her background to be so influential, which happened to be the only daughter of the National Master. Her status was even more superior to the royal family's.
Lan Waihu's friends, sisters, and brothers were extremely delighted by the revelation. They quickly congratulated her.
Amused, Zhang Chuchu laughed out loud.
