Lady Murong sneered. “Then, what are you doing here? Don’t tell me that after living for such a long time, you’re still little kids.”

Shao Di smiled. “You know that a new semester is starting at Cloud Mirror Academy soon; I’ve found a few talents this year.”

“I mean to attract people to the Earthly Residence directly this year. It’s cheaper than attracting people from Cloud Mirror Academy.”

Shao Di’s face changed and he looked at Shao Zun. “You’re becoming more and more shameless.”

Not only was the guy stealing his people, he was also talking about it disdainfully. Did he want a fight?

“You’re kidding. The garbage is a talent in your eyes? Are you blind?” Lady Murong certainly didn’t believe their bulls*it.

Neither Cloud Mirror Academy nor the Earthly Residence were short of applicants.

Too many people desired to join them.

They were simply taking her for a fool.

“With such power, the garbage is definitely a one-of-a-kind genius.”

“I think that such garbage will only become more useless in Cloud Mirror Academy, so it’s better for her to come to the Earthly Residence.”

“Enough!” Lady Murong shouted. “Whatever your reasons are, you mustn’t cause trouble in the Murong family. Should I ask your fathers to discipline you?”

Shao Di stopped and looked at Shao Zun. Just keep fooling around if you dare.

Shao Zun smiled wickedly. “My lady, I’m not happy that you use my father to intimidate me every time.”

“You’re kidnapping my precious granddaughter, and I can’t do anything about it?”

“She’s just lucky.” Shao Zun didn’t find himself shameless. Permission to enter the Earthly Residence was the utmost glory.

He had realized that Nan Ningxin seemed to be connected to both Shao Di and Prince Zi.

If she got into the Earthly Residence, he would have a lot of fun.

“She’s from the Murong family, and she’s lucky to be stolen by the Earthly Residence?” Lady Murong scoffed.

It was a pity that he was her brother’s son, which prevented her from beating him up.

“Aunt, we’re all family. The Earthly Residence is greater than the Murong family. She won’t suffer any losses.”

“Since Ningxin has accepted, I won’t let her go back on her word. However, Ningxin has to stay in the Murong family.”

“That’s not a problem. We’re family.”

Gu Bailu heard them talking when she was far away. She found Shao Di and Shao Zun unbelievably obedient.

She asked the ghost in confusion, “Why are they so scared of your grandmother?”

They had been high and mighty when facing Murong Cangjian just now.

“My grandmother has a special identity. The master of the Earthly Residence is her brother, and the master of the Imperial Residence is her teacher. So…”

“So, Shao Di and Shao Zun are scared of the strong, too!”

“They only respect grandmother for raising the Murong family up to what it is today.”

Lady Murong sounded truly incredible. No wonder Nan Ningxin tried to win her favor.

“Grandmother seems to like you,” the ghost said.

Gu Bailu nodded. “Yes. I think she’s a reasonable woman.”

It was the first time she had seen anyone solve a problem by talking in this world.
