Wei Junlan immediately got someone to check the group of children that the White Guest had raised before, and after two days, further information reached her, “Five years ago, after the White Guest was imprisoned in the forbidden land, the help for this group of children was suspended, but our people found out that following the White Guest’s imprisonment someone else would regularly help this group of children.”
“Five years ago…” Dongfang Minghui shook her head, if we count according to time, Mo Lu’s son should be about 18 or 19 years old, five years ago, the other party would’ve been 13 or 14 years old, “Since you can find out about that group of children, help me see if there is a 13 or 14 year old boy inside.”
“There’s none.” Wei Junlan looked at the information and shook her head directly, “All the children here are only thirteen or fourteen years old, five years ago means their age would be around seven, eight or nine years old, none of them match the person you are looking for, could it be that you are looking in the wrong direction?”
No wonder help was still needed, children who were only seven, eight or nine years old would have a hard time surviving in this world alone.
Dongfang Minghui took a deep breath to calm herself down, “Why is the White Guest imprisoned in your forbidden land? Do you know what the reason is?”
Wei Junlan had secretly asked the elders back when she wanted to see him and the few elders were probably the most clear about what happened back then. At that time, the original owner of her body was out on a training trip, and when she returned, everything had already been settled.
“It should be that he leaked the mission details of the Blood Fiend Alliance to someone else, but refused to reveal who the other party was.”
“How was it leaked to someone else?”
Wei Junlan thought for a moment and explained to her, “One of the rules of the Blood Fiend Alliance is to never divulge the mission to others, including the identity of the employer, and the target. The White Guest was imprisoned in the forbidden land because he violated this rule.”
This was considered a big taboo for assassins.
“Did he defend himself?”
The Grand Elder said that the other party seemed to anticipate that he would have to receive severe punishment, so he did not resist at all when he was recalled.
“We should look into what happened back then, and also who is still helping that group of children.” Dongfang Minghui also couldn’t think of any other way, she might have to break into the forbidden place of the Blood Fiend Alliance, she blinked her eyes and stared at Wei Junlan, “Before I heard you say that your forbidden place seems to be forbidden to enter, if it is hard to break in do you think the six people I brought have any chance? ”
Wei Junlan held out her index finger to her, “Not even a 1% chance.”
Dongfang Minghui’s eyes widened, no wonder the Blood Fiend Alliance can remain standing, their forbidden land is still guarded by some great powerhouses.
“Don’t even think about breaking in.” Wei Junlan was not scaring her, mainly because what is inside the forbidden land, even she as the young master, does not know. It’s probably because of her female status? According to the eldest elder, the seat of the head of the Alliance should be Jun Yi but unfortunately Jun Yi’s current body was not able to withstand this position, as his sister she was naturally responsible for shouldering the burden.
“Then what can be done?”
“Check what happened in the past, otherwise you won’t be able to ask anything even if you see him.” Wei Junlan wasn’t tricking her. The version she heard was that this mas was extremely principled and never said anything. He could bear the serious crime of divulging secrets and he was willing to protect someone so much that he even broke the basic principles for them. Since he refused to say it back then could he be willing to say it after five years?
“Maybe by solving the doubts of five years ago, we can find the person.” Dongfang Minghui counted the other party’s age, “Wei Junlan, I suddenly thought of something.”
Wei Junlan listened respectfully.
“The person we want to find, if the White Guest has adopted him, he must have been kind to him. If he suddenly learns that the White Guest is going to be executed by the Alliance, do you think he will jump out of his own accord?” This move was called inviting the king into a jar to trap them.
“Good idea.” Wei Junlan understood what she meant, “But what if he doesn’t show up? Do we really have to kill the White Guest?”
“Are you stupid?” Dongfang Minghui said with a look of contempt, “If the other party doesn’t show up even at the last minute, we’ll find someone else to save him and then let him go to see who he’ll contact.”
Wei Junlan frowned and thought for a moment, “Yes, in that case, let’s set up this trap.”
Saying that, Dongfang Minghui asked the Rose House people to pass on the news for them. Soon, there were people talking about the White Guest on all the streets of the three empires, and the storytellers all changed their stories to ones to do with the White Guest.
This showed the power of the Rose House’s extraordinary news channels.
Wei Junlan discussed with the Grand Elder, they intended to find a person pretending to be the White Guest, it was mentioned by the Grand Elder that the forbidden place where the Bloodshed Alliance used to keep prisoners would have a net of people lying in ambush.
As for the reason for the execution, Dongfang Minghui also found an excellent excuse, because of the incident five years ago, the Blood Fiend Alliance’s reputation in the eyes of the outside world has fallen wildly because of it so killing him would serve as an example.
Wei Junlan quite admired Dongfang Minghui’s plan, she nudged her, “You have been here for three days, if you do not appear at some point, the few people you brought would be looking for me to settle accounts.”
She did not think so, in order not to let those seniors worry, beforehand she had said she had something to do in for the next few days and let them cultivate in the room, “Don’t talk too much.”
Dongfang Minghui was pretending to be a prisoner, Wei Junlan naturally accompanied her and also followed her in the prison for three days, eating meals worse than a pig’s meal and also enduring the foul smells in the prison cell.
The White Guest was considered one of the top five killers in the Alliance, and there must be no one around his cell, otherwise how would they highlight the identity of the other party?
So the two people’s cell was still a few minutes away from the White Guest’s.
“Someone is coming.”
Vines were ambushing on all sides of the cage without Wei Junlan noticing, even around the White Guest were Little Colour’s vines, as soon as someone makes contact, she could catch the other party.
The visitor they got was light on his feet as he walked without a sound, if Little Colour hadn’t put up vines they would have been caught offguard.
“Damn, you dare to rob me of my meal?”
Dongfang Minghui didn’t want to paste another meal directly on Wei Junlan’s face, unexpectedly, she moved swiftly, and then she rushed to press Wei Junlan down and punched twice, “You see who he is, you know ?”
The other side was almost about to pass their cell on the way to the White Guest’s cell.
Wei Junlan was really confused by the food, she came to her senses when she heard the whisper in her ear, “You coward, if you have the guts go shout with your mouth, shouting at me is no use.”
She ruthlessly tried to give Dongfang Minghui a punch but she swung her fist and should have hit her stomach, but because the other side’s vine pulling her back it missed by one centimeter.
Her fist fell short, damn it she got cheated.
“Still dare to hit me, I’ll play you to death this time.”
Her arm was across her opponent’s neck and she pulled her hair with one hand, holding her in a death grip on the bars of the cell.
Dongfang Minghui smiled towards her, her lips moving slightly – here it comes.
A mouthful of spittle sprayed directly on Wei Junlan’s face, Wei Junlan immediately turned pale, and then she saw a figure walk past her, but her mouth still did not relent, “Dare to spit at me, I’ll skin you.”
“You have the ability come fight, as if I’m afraid of you!”
The two acted extremely realistic, one almost couldn’t tell they were acting as two prisoners fighting. Wei Junlan wiped her face, looking at the white and green rice on her sleeves, and saliva, she looked at it with disgust, and could not wait to go back to the room to shower and dress, she looked at the other party’s calm appearance, without saying a word she pounced on the other party’s neck and whispered, “You didn’t say anything to me in advance I’ll hit you.”
Dongfang Minghui pretended to roll her eyes, “If I told you we’d be exposed, wait a moment.”
As soon as she shouted to stop, Wei Junlan immediately stopped.
“There is something strange.”
“Strange?” Wei Junlan was confused.
“Not good, the other party wants to kill the white guest!”
Dongfang Minghui immediately kicked open the cell door, she thought the other side opened the door to save the White Guest, but did not expect that the other side was trying to kill him, the two of them ran all the way to the cell and saw the cell door was opened.
The opponent was a swordsman, his sword had tried three times to pierce into the other party’s vitals but Little Colour’s vines pulled him away by a few centimeters.
“Wei Junlan, subdue him.”
Wei Junlan was exasperated, the only person who dared to order her in such a tone in the Blood Fiend Alliance was this person from the same country as her, “Who are you? Why do you want to kill the White Guest?!”
She just saw the other party’s face, it looked extremely unfamiliar, not someone from the Alliance.
She stepped forward to subdue the other party wanting to ask more questions but saw the other party suddenly immediately cut open his neck, black blood spilled out from the corner of his mouth and the person fell straight to the ground with eyes wide open, she squatted down and touched the other party’s pulse, “Dead.”
The other side died out of nowhere, it looks like they came in with no intention of getting out alive.
“Is he one of your Alliance assassins?”
“I haven’t seen him before.” Wei Junlan didn’t think there was anything wrong, but after this set-up and test, she felt that there were some problems in their Blood Fiend Alliance something she had to pay attention to.
“Someone, carry this person to the council chamber, invite the elders for a gathering.”
“What’s the problem?”
She saw Wei Junlan’s face was serious.
“I need to check the identity of this person.” The Alliance had always been strict about the outside world, especially after her reorganization, the Alliance was like a brick wall. But now, there was a person that she didn’t even know who managed to intrude into their territory.
The other party wanted to kill a person who was about to be executed, if the other party had bad intentions, the Alliance’s thousands of people inside and outside would not even know why…
Council Chamber ……
Dongfang Minghui as soon as she heard the name, she knew that the matter she was going to discuss with the elders later was a rather serious one, at least outsiders like her were not allowed to participate, “Since you have something to do, let’s study this when you’re done. I’ll go to my room first.”
Wei Junlan nodded, she didn’t have many goals after crossing over, the only two were not to be enemies with the female protagonist of this world, and the second was to guard the Blood Fiend Alliance for Jun Yi, she’d wait until he was strong enough to handle the seat of head of the Alliance while she would assist at his side.
“Someone, send Miss Minghui back to her room.”
If the other party only came to kill the White Guest, even if he was defeated and caught, he would not commit suicide.
Dongfang Minghui felt that there was something here that she had overlooked, she thought about it all the way back and then it clicked, “It’s a suicide soldier.”
The person who sent her back saw her suddenly stop at something and couldn’t help but call out softly a few times.
“No, I have to go back and talk to Wei Junlan. This is a test, it’s the other side wanting to test us, and we’ve all fallen into their tricks.” She muttered and walked back the way she had just come, and just as she reached the cell, she collided heavily with two people also rushing with the same hasty pace.
“Minghui girl, are you all right?”
Dongfang Minghui was helped up by the person next to her, and she just looked up when she saw a light flashing in front of her, “Danger!”
She violently pushed away the person beside her, before she could step back, a bloodstain appeared on her arm, her mind was spinning extremely fast. There were not many people in the prison cell, whoever could so coincidentally hit and injure her at this time, she did not even need to think about it and shouted, “Catch him, he wants to take the White Guest.”
The man’s fast sword came again, but pointed straight at Dongfang Minghui’s heart this time.
Little Colour’s vines tugged her backward at once, and the speed of the two of them was extremely fast. Dongfang Minghui looked at the sword blade that was less than a centimeter from her heart, and she raised her head to meet a pair of beautiful peach blossom eyes, but a black cloth covered half of his face, so she could not see his real face clearly.
Dongfang Minghui smiled coldly at him, and the flying needles and poison darts shot out of her hands.
Her opponent probably didn’t expect her to use a sneak attack and got surprised, both sides were so close to each other that it was impossible to avoid it.
Just then, Dongfang Minghui threw a few fingertip knives in her hand towards his face, the tips of the fingertip knives were stained with some venom from when they were in the Valley of Forgetfulness, if they accidentally cut somewhere on his body it would be an instant win.
But, the other party managed to avoid it.
Just a moment ago the one who was ordered by Wei Junlan to send Dongfang Minghui back had found a large number of people.
“If you want to take away the White Guest, I guarantee you can’t leave.” Dongfang Minghui laughed.
The man looked back at the White Guest who had fallen to the ground, then at her, and finally whirled away and disappeared in a flash.
Fast, good speed, using a sword, one glance had provided her with enough information on who this was.
“Minghui girl, are you all right?” The man rushed over.
Dongfang Minghui had been put on the ground by Little Colour, she shook her head, “Where is your young master?”
“Sorry Miss Minghui, once the young master enters the council chamber, we are not allowed to disturb so-”
It seems that she had a few more pieces of information on who or where this person came from. If they knew about this as well then…
“Minghui girl, your hand.” Her hand was still dripping blood, good thing the injury was on her left hand and she hadn’t hurt her tendons, she took out some disinfectant potion from her space ring, disinfected her own wound, then crushed three blood clotting pills, tying it with a piece of white cloth, “What are you looking at silly, come and give me a hand.”
She only had one hand how could she bandage herself, she was on the side to guide the man on how to wrap her wounds.
“Minghui girl, let’s take you back.”
“No, take me to see your young master, I have something to discuss with her.” By the way, in order to prevent someone from intercepting prisoners here, pick up the White Guest as well and we’ll go to your young master’s side.
She didn’t believe that if she personally guarded him she could still lose the person.
“When she comes out of the meeting it will be over stop hesitating and lead the way.” Dongfang Minghui felt that she could not wait for a moment longer, in case the other person failed to come back with another plan, how could she handle it then?
However, by the time Wei Junlan came out from the meeting hall, she heard about what happened after she left.
“You said Minghui was injured?”
“Yes, young master, she was trying to save-”
“Okay, hurry up and show me.”
Wei Junlan knocked her head, she was also angry. Her nerves were too tense and she got confused by an assassin who came under false pretenses, she didn’t expect that the other party was playing a trick of transferring the tiger away from the mountain, she had really underestimated him…
