Chapter 488 – Do You Know Who I Am?

Mu Guilin felt quite surprised and replied, “Proxy leader, don’t you want to at least take a look at them? They’re peerless beauties. They’re incredibly difficult to find!
“This is especially so for the ones called Feng Shiyu and Li Muqing. They’re both outstanding beauties, and after coming to the Ying family’s residence, countless members of the Ying family have gone to see them. If it wasn’t for the fact that they are to be the Legatee’s women, countless Ying family members would’ve madly started pursuing them already!”
By now, the bodyguard had come back with food. As such, Zhao Fu started eating while replying in an uncaring tone, “So what? Even if they’re beautiful, they’re the Legatee’s women. What does that have to do with me?”
Of course, this was utter rubbish – he was Great Qin’s Legatee, so how could this not have to do with him?
However, Zhao Fu didn’t want to waste time on this, because after eating, he wanted to return to the Heaven Awaken World and attack Westpan City. Time was tight, so he had no time for those people.
At that moment, Mu Guilin suddenly bowed and said in a low voice, “But proxy leader, you’re the most important person to the Legatee, so if you’re willing, the Legatee might even give them to you. Right now, if you want, any woman is willing to throw herself at you. If proxy leader has such desires, I can arrange that for you. Right now, I am only loyal to you, proxy leader!”
Zhao Fu swallowed a mouthful of food as his body froze – he realized that Mu Guilin had come to express his loyalty.
That indeed made sense – his power now exceeded the other family leaders, and as long as Great Qin’s Legatee didn’t say anything, he was the true family leader and wielded the highest authority. Countless factions tried to curry favor with him, as he was Great Qin’s Legatee’s representative in the real world.
However, Zhao Fu still had to reject his good intentions and said, “Let them stay in the Ying family for now and treat them well. I’ll report this matter to Great Qin’s Legatee, but I won’t be meeting with them.”
Hearing this, Mu Guilin felt slightly disappointed. He had wanted to help Zhao Fu with this, making Zhao Fu view him favorably, but it seemed that Zhao Fu wasn’t too interested. However, after thinking about it, Mu Guilin remembered that the proxy leader had a close and intimate relationship with Wu Qingniang. Mu Guilin expressed that he understood and left.
Zhao Fu continued to eat, and just as he finished eating and was wiping his mouth, a clamor sounded outside the door – it seemed that many people had come. This caused Zhao Fu to frown, and his bodyguard immediately left to see what was going on.
A few moments later, the bodyguard returned and said, “Mr. Zhao, there are four women outside who want to see you. They are most likely the four beauties Mu Guilin was talking about.”
Hearing this, Zhao Fu felt quite helpless and took a sip out of his cup before nodding. “Let them come in!”
The bodyguard nodded, and soon, a young woman, who gave off a pampered air and had delicate facial features, snow-white skin, and a tall and slim figure, rushed in furiously.
She slammed her palm down on Zhao Fu’s table and yelled, “You dared not to see me? Do you know who I am? I’m your Legatee’s future Empress!”
Cough! Cough! Cough! Zhao Fu choked on the water that he was swallowing as he looked at this young woman.
The young woman furiously glared at him and yelled, “You’re finished now! You’d best apologize to me now, or after I tell my husband, your Legatee, you’ll be severely punished!”
Hearing this, Zhao Fu felt quite confused and asked, “Since when did you come into contact with the Legatee? And since when did you become his Empress?”
The young woman, Feng Shiyu, crossed her arms and harrumphed as she said, “Go into the Heaven Awaken World and tell him that I’ve become his woman. I don’t believe that the Legatee would think that I’m not good enough!”
Only now did Zhao Fu look at Feng Shiyu closely and find that she was indeed incredibly beautiful. Whether it was her aura or her looks, she was quite exceptional. By now, Zhao Fu had seen countless beauties, and she was still quite gorgeous.
Facing Zhao Fu’s gaze, Feng Shiyu felt quite pleased. However, after thinking about it, she wrinkled her nose and looked quite disgusted as she pointed at Zhao Fu with a snow-white finger and said, “You’d best not have any unruly thoughts towards me; I’m Great Qin’s Legatee’s woman. Plus, how could I be interested in someone unmanly like you?”
Zhao Fu looked away, not sure what to say.
By now, the three other women had walked in. They were all extremely beautiful as well, and anyone who looked at them would feel entranced.
The first woman looked like she was in her early twenties, and she was quite slim. She also gave off a learned and cultured aura. Zhao Fu was quite surprised to see that she was wearing an ancient-style dress, and her hair and makeup were also done in a traditional way.
The second woman looked around 23 or 24 years old, and she had a shapely figure and skin like jade. She gave off a gentle aura like water and had incredibly slim fingers.
The third woman looked like she had just turned 20, and she had an extremely voluptuous figure, which looked like baby fat. Her skin was quite white, and she looked extremely lovable and cute, making anyone who saw her want to make her theirs.
Just from their airs alone, Zhao Fu could guess who they were: the first was most likely Li Muqing, due to her scholarly airs; the second was most likely Liu Ruyan, who was skilled in music; and the last was most likely Pan Yuling, whose body gave off an alluring aura.
Seeing that the others had also come in, Feng Shiyu lightly harrumphed and went back to her normal state as she sat down on a sofa.
Zhao Fu looked at the four women in front of him and asked, “Everyone, why have you come to see me? If it’s about Great Qin Legatee, I will let him know about you.”
Liu Ruyan and Pan Yuling lightly shook their heads, indicating that they had indeed come here so that Zhao Fu would tell Great Qin’s Legate about them so that their families could be acknowledged by Great Qin’s Legatee.
However, Li Muqing was different, as she had come voluntarily. The three others had been sent by their families, and their fates had been decided. None of them felt happy about this, so there was a faint look of hurt on their faces.
However, Li Muqing smiled and asked, “Mr. Zhao, aren’t you going to ask me to sit with you?”
Hearing this, Zhao Fu suddenly remembered proper etiquette; he had forgotten the responsibilities that now came with his new social standing.
As such, he asked Li Muqing, Liu Ruyan, and Pan Yuling to sit, and Zhao Fu looked at Li Muqing, waiting to hear what she had to say.
From what he knew, this talented woman was only interested in literary talents and didn’t care about power or riches. As such, why had Li Muqing come voluntarily? Zhao Fu was curious about this.
