“Are you Mu Ningxue?” A woman in a holy battle suit approached her and sized her up arrogantly.
The Holy Ruler had long golden-brown hair. Waves of her hair draped across her shoulders and chest. It reached her waist.
She had an upright posture and a prominent nose. She had red lips and a pair of blue eyes. She was gorgeous and radiated an air of nobility.
“Yes, I am,” Mu Ningxue said.
“Hah! Asians have a strange sense of judgment. You look so ordinary to a European. People still prefer deep and prominent features like mine.” The female Holy Ruler chuckled.
“Did the Five Continents Magic Association Alliance recruit me for a beauty contest?” Mu Ningxue smirked.
“They are discussing some important issues, so you can’t go in there for now. Michael asked me to follow you closely. You can call me Yvette,” said the female Holy Ruler.
Yvette stared at Mu Ningxue arrogantly. Her gaze roamed over Mu Ningxue’s body in a rude manner. Yvette chuckled when her eyes swept across a certain part of Mu Ningxue’s body.
Mu Ningxue assumed Yvette to be a superficial fool and did not indulge her. She went over to check on Yan Lan and her group members.
But Yvette refused to let Mu Ningxue leave. “We have to wait here lest they call you. As you know, all the experts from the Five Continents Magic Association Alliance are gathered here. They have prominent and outstanding positions. Every decision they make could affect the operation of the world. Therefore, we should not delay even a second, if called.”
There was a large and heavy stone door before them. They did not hear any sound from the other side.
Just when Yvette was about to make a sour remark at Mu Ningxue again, a gap slowly appeared at the large door. The door opened from the inside. Two men in holy battle suits pushed at the stone door.
The large, stone door was not entirely opened. It left a gap only big enough to allow one or two people to go through. One of the Holy Rulers glanced at Mu Ningxue and Yvette. “Who’s Mu Ningxue?”
Mu Ningxue stepped forward. Yvette was only half a step behind her.
“How do you prove yourself to be her?” The Holy Ruler did not allow them to enter through the door. Instead, he shot her a strange question.
“She’s Mu Ningxue. Forbidden Mage from China, Wei Guang escorted her,” said Yvette.
“Where is the escort, then?” asked the Holy Ruler.
“He’s resting inside the formation. Do you want him summoned?” asked Yvette.
Mu Ningxue was puzzled over the Holy Rulers’ behavior. ‘Did they have to be vigilant to this extent, or had someone previously impersonated me and come to the human’s forbidden land?’
Wei Guang was summoned.
He was in a poor mental state. He looked no different from a zombie. It was clear to see that he forced himself to stay awake and walk here after the alliance summoned him.
“I’m Wei Guang. I came here by the order of the Ice Emperor.” Wei Guang behaved more politely before the Holy Rulers.
‘The Ice Emperor?’ Mu Ningxue’s heart clenched upon hearing the words.
Mo Fan had told her about the Forbidden Curse Plan related to the Great Bronze Bell Hill on the Emperor Qin Island.
The Ice Emperor was under the Extreme South Emperor’s control and was its puppet. It used him to monitor the world.
‘Hadn’t Commander Hua freed him from the Extreme South Emperor’s manipulation? Why did he appear here?’ Mu Ningxue felt puzzled.
The Ice Emperor ,Mu Rong, was the first to confront the Extreme South Emperor among the experts. He was also the only survivor among them.
Once a Forbidden Mage became an Ocean Demon’s puppet, he would undoubtedly pose a great threat to humans. Since Commander Hua had identified him as one of the Ocean Demon’s puppets, the Ice Emperor should have been closely guarded. After all, no one could make sure whether he had broken free of the Extreme South Emperor’s control or not.
‘Could it be that the Five Continents Magic Association Alliance was aware of this and was using the Ice Emperor to locate the Extreme South Emperor?’
That would make more sense.
‘But why did the Ice Emperor let Wei Guang recruit her for the battle?’ thought Mu Ningxue.
Mu Rong was a legendary figure in the Mu family. As a Forbidden Mage, Mu Rong did not get involved in any of the family’s affairs. He had basically left his family.
The Mu family had another real “ancestor” who took charge of the family.
When Mu Ningxue was at Mu Pang Mountain, she heard someone saying that even though Mu Rong came from the Mu family, he did not get along with the real “ancestor”.
The “ancestor” of the Mu family lived in Imperial City and enjoyed a high status there. Rumor had it that he never revealed himself as the Forbidden Mage and had not registered as one of the experts in the Forbidden Curse Association.
He neither revealed his true identity nor appeared before the world. As such, he did not have to obey the Forbidden Curse Convention. Mu Ningxue had thought of it before she came to the Extreme South Land.
The reason the Five Continents Magic Association Alliance had recruited her was mostly because of the big wig from the Mu family who happened to be one of the world’s experts. It was clear that he had learned about her special talent in Ice Element ability. Hence, he decided to recruit her in fighting the Extreme South Emperor.
She had assumed that it was the “ancestor” from the Mu family who had recruited her. She did not expect it to be the Ice Emperor instead.
The Mu family addressed him as the “ancestor”. Of course, he was not an old monster that had lived for several hundred years.
Unfortunately, a majority of the Mu family did not know much about the two Forbidden Mages, the ancestor and Mu Rong, and they knew even less about Mu Ningxue who had been driven out of the Mu family.
After they entered through the large, stone door, Yvette stayed close to her. Her rude demeanor was gone the moment she entered through the stone door. She appeared solemn, elegant, and righteous.
Wei Guang lowered his head as he entered through the stone door. Even though the people inside the stone door were strangers to Mu Ningxue, she felt pressured when she noticed Wei Guang and Yvnette’s drastic changes.
Inside the boulder was a spacious and simple hall. It did not give off an atmosphere of opulence and majesty. Instead, the people inside radiated imposing auras. They did not purposely target Mu Ningxue and her group. Their aura came naturally due to the tension under the poor extreme south environment. Their tense expressions inevitably gave off a certain kind of pressure.
“Ice Emperor and fellow seniors, this is Mu Ningxue. She is here safe and sound. My mission is complete.” Wei Guang bowed and tried to speak in a deeper voice. He did not want the rest to find out that he was in a weakened and fragile state.
