1205 Against The Rules

    Upon hearing this, the father and son looked at each other, then finally, Old Patriarch answered: "Country Ruler, we have come today to ask for a favour."

    "Oh? What favour?" He asked.

    "Actually this is what's happened. After our investigation, we learned that the Ghost Doctor Feng Jiu is Feng Xiao's daughter. Feng Xiao is my daughter Wanrong's husband. For some reason, the two of them have been separated. Now that we know of her identity, we would like to acknowledge her as part of the family. Therefore, we would like to ask for Country Ruler's help in this matter."

    The Country Ruler smiled lowly: "I'm afraid I can't help you in this matter. The Ghost Doctor is only a guest here. If what you've said is true, then I'm sure that even without my help, the Ghost Doctor will acknowledge you. If she refuses to acknowledge you, then I would only irritate her if I tried to help."

    "But she really is my younger sister's daughter." Shangguan Family's Family Head said.

    "Then you only have to go to Phoenix Dynasty and get her father to corroborate your story, isn't that right?" He smiled and continued speaking: "Okay, I have other matters to attend to, I shall be taking my leave."

    Upon seeing this, they could only stand up and bid goodbye.

    Once they were out of the palace, Shangguan Family's Family Head looked at his father and asked: "Father, are we really going to send men to Phoenix Dynasty? Feng Xiao's memory has been sealed, even if we went, I'm afraid he wouldn't remember anything."

    "Since Feng Jiu refuses to acknowledge us and the Country Ruler has refused to help, then we have no choice but to go to the Phoenix Dynasty. Also, the people we send can't be ordinary people. In any case, I hope that Feng Jiu will become a part of our Shangguan Family and help us."

    "But her power and influence is so great, I am afraid that it's not going to be that easy." Shangguan Family's Family Head frowned as he spoke: "Did you not hear what she said on the streets this morning? Her expression and her tone was obvious that she had no intention of acknowledging our Shangguan Family. I worry that even if we send someone to Phoenix Dynasty, in the end she still won't acknowledge us."

    The Old Patriarch's face turned somber when he heard that and snorted coldly: "It is their honour that our Shangguan Family is relatives with them!"

    Upon seeing this, Shangguan Family Family Head said nothing more. It was useless to say anything more, he could only wait and see!

    At the other side, in the Royal Garden, there was a beautiful woman sitting in front of Feng Jiu who was admiring the flowers. This woman claimed to be the concubine who had taken one of her Nourishing Beauty Pills. When she found out that she was in the palace, she had come over to thank her.

    "Ghost Doctor, after I had taken your Nourishing Beauty Pill, my looks have been restored to my seventeen eighteen year old face. Even the Country Ruler was astounded when he saw me. It is because of Ghost Doctor's elixir that I am able to regain favour again."

    The beautiful woman's voice was soft and gentle and she didn't look like a woman in her thirties. Whether it was her looks, figure or skin, she was a first class beauty.

    "It's not necessary to thank me. You didn't get the elixir from me.

    When she heard this, the expression on the concubine's face stiffened as she didn't know what else to say. She felt that Feng Jiu was too straightforward.

    "Well then, Ghost Doctor, if that's the case, can I buy elixirs from you? I can pay a high price, you won't lose out." After thinking about it, she felt that she had better be frank and ask now before she was at a loss for words.

    Feng Jiu raised her teacup and took a sip of tea then said slowly: "I can't do that. My medicines and elixir can only be sold through the Black Market. I can't sell them, that's against the rules."
