“You’ll come to know whether or not my words hold true. For now, call that woman in for me. At her current cultivation, she shouldn’t be able to see through your human form.” Han Li casually commanded.
Regardless of her suspicions, she respectfully replied, “As you bid, Master!” Han Li then turned around and entered the large hall.
After the time it took to finish a cup of tea, Silvermoon gracefully entered the hall with a haggard Mu Peiling. It seemed that this short time had been quite stressful for her.
Silvermoon glanced at Han Li and respectfully said, “Master, Young Lady Mu has arrived.”
Han Li nodded his head and indifferently said, “I am aware. You may leave.”
“This servant is excused!” Silvermoon shot a glance at Mu Peiling and departed from hall with a pursed smile.
“I pay my respects to Senior Han.” After saluting Han Li, she remained helplessly silent as if she were awaiting punishment from Han Li.
Han Li slightly frowned in response to her appearance and he examined her beautiful face.
Without revealing the slightest anger, he calmly said, “You should know why I’ve called you in. You blurted out words to those cultivation clans that gave them a domineering impression of me.

And these rumors should’ve already spread throughout the cultivation world as well. So tell me, how should I deal with you?”
Mu Peiling bit her lips and softly said, “Junior has nothing to say. I will have no complaints in how Senior will punish me.”
“Since cultivators on the outside know you to be my concubine, I will give you two choices. The first is to pretend to be my concubine, but you will actually be my servant and obey my orders. After you’ve served me for twenty years, the matter should’ve faded and I will let you free. However, you had best avoid any thoughts that I will assist with the cultivation of a servant girl.”
When Mu Peiling heard this, she revealed a trace of disappointment and raise
