Evil Emperor's Wild Consort - chapter-196
If it hadn’t been for Master’s pity for her, Qianbei Ye would have
definitely killed Tianqiong!
They were the main culprits!
“Old fellow, I don’t care if you’re an elder of Dark Yin Palace,
and I don’t care who the mastermind behind you is. Today, you must die!
If you manage to leave here with your life, then even the gods will be
Strong killing intent surged towards Elder Liu. The woman became a blur
of yellow, graceful and elegant as her face filled with her desire for
murder. Just as she was about to reach Elder Liu, his sharp eyes caught a
figure in pink rushing in from outside the courtyard. Full of great
surprise and joy, he shouted, “My Lord, save me!”
His Lord was here! They were done for! Hahaha!
Elder Liu’s face was a frightening sight. The lines of his face were
all etched with malevolence, contorting into a demon hungry for
slaughter. In his eyes, the people before him were practically dead men
The man Elder Liu had shouted for remained sitting on his softwood chair.
His almond-shaped eyes were two narrow slits; his smile was perpetual and
light. And even though they had practically sprinted all the way here,
the girls carrying his sedan showed no signs of exertion: their faces
were calm and expressionless.
Upon seeing the young woman sheltered in Qianbei Ye’s arms, the man’s
eyes flickered. Then his gaze landed on Elder Liu’s delighted face.
“My Lord, please save me!” Elder Liu shouted again at the man. This
incomparably beautiful man was his last hope. As long as his Lord was
here, no one was going to be able to kill him.
Although Elder Liu was a trained assassin, he was still afraid of death!
Furthermore, he held a high position of authority and hadn’t enjoyed
the fruits of his labour yet. How could he be willing to perish in the
hands of a little girl?
However, very quickly, Zuo Shangchen retracted his gaze and looked
instead towards Gu Ruoyun, eyes filling with grief.
“Xiao Yun’er, this matter has nothing to do with me! I’ve already
sent Qingyi to investigate the culprits who accepted this mission; I just
hadn’t thought he would act so quickly. This fellow is one of the men
under my Dark Yin Palace, so I’ll definitely fulfill my promise to you
and give you an answer for your grievances.”
Gu Ruoyun sneered and remained silent. If Dark Yin Palace had simply
tried to assassinate her, perhaps she wouldn’t be this angry right now.
However, Dark Yin Palace had seriously injured her right-hand woman!
This was something she wasn’t able to tolerate.
“Zuo Shangchen, I told you earlier that Dark Yin Palace was trying to
kill me, and I gave you time to find the culprits! I also told you that
they had better not touch the people by my side, or else I would make
them pay an appropriate price, even if it takes the rest of my life!”
The determination in the young woman’s voice resounded with Zuo
Shangchen, causing his heart to tremble a little. Without his conscious
bidding, his almond-shaped eyes were affixed on that delicate face of
hers. Although her strength hadn’t reached a point where she could be
called an expert, her heart was already tough and tenacious, matching the
bearing of Gu Tian and his wife back then…
Elder Liu stiffened in shock as he watched the interaction between the
two. His astonishment began to give way to a chilly feeling that was
steadily engulfing his heart, making him so cold that he shivered.
His Lord was acquainted with Gu Ruoyun? Furthermore, they didn’t seem
like normal acquaintances from the way they were talking…
He had actually accepted a mission to assassinate his Lord’s friend!
With his Lord’s temper, he probably wasn’t going to escape calamity
Elder Liu’s old face was as pale as ash when his thoughts finally
connected. His lips started to tremble as the utmost level of despair
began to creep onto his face.
When Zuo Shangchen glanced at Elder Liu, his expression turned absolutely
serious: “Elder Liu, our Dark Yin Palace has a rule that must be
followed before accepting any mission: we have to investigate the
target’s background thoroughly. This time, you’ve touched someone you
shouldn’t have. I can’t protect you anymore. Since you were the one
to turn your blade against the wrong person, give your lifeblood to
absolve your sins.”
