Together, the three of them walked into the medicinal plants garden.
Xuan Zhu was quite frank, “Pick, pick any plant, I will never regret what I said.”
Qian Wanyu followed at the end and took a look at the layout and size of the medicinal plants garden, and at a glance she could estimate the number of medicinal plants in the garden.
Dongfang Minghui had been here once, or twice, and she remembered that there was an octagonal pavilion and a lake where she could rest after strolling around the garden.
“Love Flower, we’ve been here before, do you have a little friend in mind?” She used her mind to communicate with Love Flower inside her space ring.
But Love Flower directly said , “This medicinal garden is only an auxiliary garden, the medicinal plants in it are all quite low grade. No wonder she was so generous, she played you.”
Dongfang Minghui felt a little hurt, why did everyone always want to bully her…
“It’s like this, you’ve seen the size of the Angelica garden, the Angelica garden is much bigger than this place, do you understand?”
“Naturally I understand…”
The highly intelligent ones play with the highly intelligent ones and just throw the unintelligent ones aside …… Dongfang Minghui wanted to hide in a hole, she couldn’t make heads or tails of the thoughts of these people.
She looked disappointed as she casually turned around, sneaking a glance at the two of them and couldn’t help but aggrievedly say, “Seventh sister, there is nothing I like here.”
Qian Wanyu also accidentally saw those medicinal plants in the back of the pharmacy once, she had been attracted by the huge resources of the Royal Academy. The medicinal plants in their garden alone was the most complete in the entire Seven Colored Continent.
But still, this was the royal family’s garden anyway. There would definitely be good stuff in their medicinal garden but it would be hidden away in a more important place. It was easy to tell that this wasn’t the place because there was no one watching the garden.
Dongfang Wanyu could obviously tell the trick now. She curled her lips seeing Dongfang Minghui’s blank expression and spoke to Xuan Zhu faintly, “This garden isn’t the biggest one right?”
As she asked, Dongfang Minghui properly pretended to not know anything and looked at Xuan Zhu with a questioning simple face.
Xuan Zhu was stunned, and then embarrassedly defended, “Actually, I planted all these medicinal plants, but the quality is quite good…”
She planted them?
Dongfang Minghui and Qian Wanyu had a big word pop into their heads – Cheater!
Qian Wanyu knew Xuan Zhu’s personality, the other party was a thief, anything she said was seven parts false and only three parts true so she didn’t believe anything she said.
“Ninth Sister, I think Miss Xuan Zhu was just fooling around with you, the previous bet was probably just a joke.
Qian Wanyu stated and took the initiative to take Dongfang Minghui’s hand, she nodded to Xuan Zhu indifferently as a greeting, and then the two left directly.
That was similar to giving Xuan Zhu a complete slap in the face!
Xuan Zhu’s face was flushed red, and there was a thought in her heart, Qian Wanyu was indeed a very difficult person to fool.
Not to mention that she was still the supreme princess in the royal family, even if she was an ordinary person if she was looked down upon like that by other, she probably wouldn’t let it go.
The first thing you need to know is how to make sure that you are not going to lose your money.
“Hey, wait, you guys don’t leave yet!”
Xuan Zhu shouted a few times and found that the other party not only didn’t stop but walked even faster.
“This princess told you to stop.”
She shouted, and they were forced to stop.
Dongfang Minghui sneaked a glance at Qian Wanyu, who blinked down at her, but still didn’t change her face.
Dongfang Minghui was shocked by Qian Wanyu’s adorable action, and then realized that the other party was helping her.
Xuan Zhu just used her princess title in a fit of rage and coughed twice in the face of her newfound friends, “What are you guys running so fast for?
Qian Wanyu glanced at her faintly, “Does Princess Xuan Zhu have any orders?”
This attitude was really bad, and Xuan Zhu felt a little aggrieved, what was wrong with bringing the two of them to her own medicinal garden?
If you really got down to it both her and Qian Wanyu were two people on the same boat.
Dongfang Minghui took the other girl’s hand.
“Since you guys don’t like the medicinal plants this girl planted, I’ll take you to the biggest place in the royal family, but as promised, you can only choose one plant, no more than that.” Xuan Zhu said with a serious face.
Dongfang Minghui looked surprised, “So those medicinal plants were really planted by you?”
She had thought that Xuan Zhu was lying to her.
“Of course it’s true!” Xuan Zhu was about to vomit blood having to deal with these two sisters, although she was a thief but she always told the truth when it mattered yet these two were looking at her like she lied to them since the start…what the hell!?
After this, Xuan Zhu also showed some sincerity when treating them and took them for an open and honest stroll around the inner court of the royal family.
Dongfang Minghui had seen many strange things but she was curious why in such a huge palace there seemed to be very few if any guards.
“We’re almost there.”
They turned around many small courtyards hidden within other courtyards, so much so that Dongfang Minghui could no longer tell where she was going.
Soon, however, she saw the guards in the royal court.
They wore thick armor, and their faces and bodies were wrapped like an iron-clad machine, their faces were not visible at all.
They all had cold weapons in their hands, which looked very cool.
Dongfang Minghui couldn’t help but take a curious look at them a few more times.
“These are the Ironclad Guards of our royal family, they only listen to Father’s orders alone.”
Ironclad Guards, Dongfang Minghui was shocked, so this was the famous Ironclad Legion of the White Moon Empire, the first group of warriors sworn to defend the empire to the death, and were all doomed to die for the country in the end.
Qian Wanyu suddenly found that the other party’s mood swings were a little strange, and she squeezed the other’s palm lightly.
“What’s wrong with you?”
Dongfang Minghui shook her head, feeling just a little sorry for them.
Qian Wanyu and Dongfang Minghui had to go through five stages of interrogation, even if princess Xuan Zhu was there, they still received the attention of many people.
“Do you know why I didn’t want to bring you here?”
Xuan Zhu looked at them sympathetically and smiled, “This place has a lot of rules, I’m not as comfortable here compared to my place.”
Dongfang Minghui took a look at something that looked like a wristband worn on her wrist and asked, “Xuan Zhu, what is this?”
“This ah, this thing nullifies your spiritual energy, I’m sorry, but they’re also just following orders.” Xuan Zhu also had one in her own hand, and she playfully showed it to them.
Nullify spiritual energy?
Dongfang Minghui tried several times to use her spiritual energy and found that her body’s internal spiritual energy was unresponsive.
Qian Wanyu also found out and was shocked.
The royal family was really full of crouching tigers and hidden dragons. It gave them the illusion that there were no guards anywhere else in the royal family, which made them relax their guard. But then in this important area, not only were there multiple checkpoints for a medicinal garden it was heavily guarded by the Ironclad Legion.
The two of them followed Xuan Zhu calmly, and a steward led them into the courtyard.
“Love Flower, is there something very important inside the Spiritual Courtyard of the Royal Family, can you feel it?” When Dongfang Minghui saw how formal the other party was, she couldn’t help but speculate a bit more as to what was so important.
“There are indeed a few medicinal plants here that have opened their spiritual wisdom, let me feel them in detail.”
“Uncle Xuan, you don’t have to follow us.” Xuan Zhu felt that everyone seemed to be very uncomfortable with the other party following, so she wanted to send the steward away.
But she didn’t expect the other party to say with a smiling face, “Princess, just now His Majesty ordered me to treat your two friends well, and I must do my best to be a good host to them.”
Xuan Zhu left her mouth, her father was good at everything, but he really was too overly cautious. She turned to Qian Wanyu and Dongfang Minghui and spread her hands, “I’m sorry, you two, you guys can choose yourself.”
Qian Wanyu looked at Dongfang Minghui and smiled, “Ninth Sister is the pharmacist, let her choose, I’ll take a look around.”
Xuan Zhu nodded, with her little understanding of Qian Wanyu, the other party was a cultivation fanatic, talking to her about medicinal plants was the same as playing the piano for a cow.
With the previous garden, part of her was wanted to test Dongfang Minghui’s knowledge of medicinal plants, but she managed to pick up on it.
“Minghui, do you need Uncle Xuan to assist you on the side?” When Xuan Zhu saw that Qian Wanyu had walked away, she kindly asked Dongfang Minghui.
She asked Dongfang Minghui kindly. “Yes, I’ll leave it to Steward Xuan.”
Dongfang Minghui was fine with it, she didn’t care if there was anyone around to watch over her, but it was strange that they were so cautious about them.
There must be something in the courtyard that needed to be guarded by them.
“Love Flower, what did you find?”
Dongfang Minghui’s frank face made Steward Xuan cast his eyes on her and nod as he followed her.
“Go to the patch of medicinal bushes on your left.” Love Flower gave her a wide area to walk around.
Dongfang Minghui first led Steward Xuan around in a big circle, pointing at some strange and bizarre medicinal plants, always asking a question or two, and Steward Xuan dutifully answered her doubts.
However, he would always leave half of what he said un-answered, deliberately confusing her. After a few times, Dongfang Minghui sensed the other party’s real intention.
“Girl can how about you just tell this old man about what sort of medicinal plants you need and I can point them out to you specifically.” The steward said patiently.
The other party’s attitude was very friendly, if not for the fact that Dongfang Minghui’s space ring had an old and mature Love Flower, most likely she would have been fooled by this person.
“Steward Xuan, in fact, to be honest, I have also been to the Angelica Garden of our Royal Academy, but I was very curious about the medicinal plants inside your Royal Family’s Astral Academy. It just so happens that Princess Xuanzhu was hospitable, and wanted to give me a medicinal plant, I couldn’t be rude and say no so we’re here. Since I have to pick something, I want to pick something I like. Can Steward Xuan walk with me for a while?”
With no clear goal in mind, Steward Xuan couldn’t say anything more, but he got a lot of information from the other party’s words.
“Naturally, Miss Qian is a friend of the princess, this way please.”
Dongfang Minghui circled around and finally arrived in the direction the Love Flower pointed out, she squatted down and carefully observed each medicinal plant.
“Love Flower, is this where you wanted to find your little friend?”
Her brow scrunched up in confusion, the plants in this area of the garden seemed to have some sort of issue. They all seemed almost…lifeless?
In the meantime, Steward Xuan had also been observing her expression, and when he saw her frown, he stood aside with a blank expression revealing nothing.
“Yes, right here, let’s not go into the details, let’s take it out first.” Qinghua told Dongfang Minghui in her consciousness, adding a few words to make her hurry up.
Dongfang Minghui pointed to the medicinal plants in this garden, “Steward Xuan, why are your royal family’s medicinal plants so strange?”
Steward Xuan smiled and said, “Miss Qian is overly worried, this medicinal garden is tended to by dozens of medicine gardeners everyday, they would inspect each of them as well afterwards.”
“This medicinal plant is quite cute, I’ll take it.”
Dongfang Minghui casually pointed to a sickly medicinal plant, the medicinal plant was shaped like a lamp, its whole body hung down, normal people looking at this plant would thing it was dying or something.
When Steward Xuan looked in the direction she was pointing at, he asked, “Why did Miss Qian choose this?”
She pointed to the medicinal plants’ shape, her eyes widened, and she said with a look of surprise, “Don’t you think its stalk bends down and looks like a cat’s claw saying hello? I think it looks very lucky, it can definitely bring me some good luck.”
Dongfang Minghui was talking nonsense in order to take home the medicinal plant!
After staring at the medicinal plant for a while, Steward Xuan thought what she said did make some sort of sense, “Miss Qian is quite right, in that case, Miss Qian please wait a moment, I will soon present the medicinal plant to you.”
“Thank you, Steward Xuan.”
If not for the choice of Love Flower, Dongfang Minghui certainly wouldn’t have picked this plant, not to mention how sick and dead it looked to normal people… She decided, with a twist of the heart, to call this medicinal plant Lucky from now on!
“Seventh sister, I’ve chosen.”
She saw Xuan Zhu and the Female Protagonist talking from a distance, and when they saw her coming, the expressions on their faces were different.
Something was definitely going on between the two of them.
“I’m going to go see what you’ve picked out.” Xuan Zhu was very curious, the other party took so long to pick the medicinal plants so they must be very special.
As a result after checking, Xuan Zhu had a smiling expression on her face, “Hey, if word gets out that you picked such a medicinal plant, they’ll definitely not think you got it from Xuan Zhu.”
Qian Wanyu also followed, but didn’t say anything, “Princess Xuan Zhu must be joking, I think Ninth Sister must have a reason for choosing it.
Qing Mo also looked disgusted, “Is your Ninth Sister too scared or what? Or did her brain just go to the-”
“I believe her.”
A single sentence blocked Qing Mo from saying anything.
“In fact, don’t you think it looks like it’s beckoning to the cat’s paw? There was a legend that such an action was inviting good luck. I’ve had a lot of bad things happen to me lately, and I thought it was probably the will of god that sent it to me, sp I wanted it to bring me good luck like the legend, that’s why I chose it.”
Xuan Zhu was confused, did anyone really believe in this superstition?
Qian Wanyu looked at Dongfang Minghui with a smile at the corner of her eyes, and stunned Xuanzhu. She pursed her mouth, trying to laugh.
Xuan Zhu suspiciously looked at the two of them, and as a result could only nod, “Okay, don’t come crying to me when you take it back.”
Since the medicinal plant was taken away, the bet was over. Xuan Zhu sent the two back to their small courtyard and left.
Qian Wanyu pulled them into the room, took one look outside to make sure no one was there, and locked the door.
Dongfang Minghui immediately took the cat paw looking plant out as well as Love Flower who followed.
Qian Wanyu glared at Dongfang Minghui and pulled her aside, “Ninth Sister, why did you bring it with you?”
God, her Ninth Sister’s heart was really big, first Toothless, and then this Love Flower as well, a plant that was enough to make people go crazy!
If it was discovered, there was no telling what kind of commotion it would cause.
As soon as Dongfang Minghui saw the Female Protagonist’s face, she immediately admitted her mistake, “Seventh sister, Love Flower was bored in the courtyard and wanted to come out to see the world.”
What does a medicinal plant want to see! In Qian Wanyu’s opinion, this Love Flower was an extremely cunning medicinal plant that could not only disguise itself but also release illusions to fool anyone.
Ninth Sister’s bad habits were definitely mostly brought about by these naughty medicinal plants.
Even if she was angry, she couldn’t bear to scold Dongfang Minghui after everything that had happened.
“Tell me why you chose this medicinal plant.”
She put the topic back to the half-dead medicinal plants on the table, “Don’t keep fooling me with what you just said.”
Dongfang Minghui stretched her hands helplessly, “This is the little friend that Love Flower chose.”
Love Flower didn’t explain much and brought the plant into her ring.
Dongfang Minghui: “……”
So this really was a useless medicinal plant, and Love Flower was just too lonely? Looking for a buddy to come back and make soy sauce?
Qian Wanyu saw her silly eyes, held back her laughter, patted her little head lightly, and warned seriously, “Don’t get too close to it.”
She always had the feeling that Love Flower was a disaster waiting to drag her Ninth Sister down not to mention her strange contracted magic plant.
As she watched Female Protagonist go off to practice, Dongfang Minghui looked at her space interior, where Love Flower was now silently staying with the new medicinal plant.
She had the feeling that she was the youngest daughter-in-law of Love Flower, not able to understand what was going on… she saw the other was weak and simply threw a few bottles of spirit liquid in.
“Is it sick?”
When she came back, it was pulled into the space ring by Love Flower before she could say a word to it, and she thought it was really just a little friend that Love Flower had found to keep it company.
She was like an outsider despite technically being the owner ah!
“No, it’s just playing dead.” Love Flower’s gave a brief answer.
When Love Flower finished explaining, Dongfang Minghui saw that Lucky stretched out a leaf, gently hooked around one of the bottles and opened the porcelain bottle of spiritual liquid, after swallowing two of them in one go it dropped its head weakly again like it was about to die.
This top tier level of fake acting, Dongfang Minghui had seen it for the first time on a medicinal plant…
She intended to pay silent attention to the attraction to see if there was anything special about it, but with the sudden addition of another plant, she felt as if the mood of Love Flower had risen considerably.
Seeing the Female Protagonist practising, Dongfang Minghui also picked up some silver needles and ran outside. The matter of Murong Qingyi had not yet been resolved, and she reckoned that the other party would still try to do something bad.
“Minghui, I feel like I have something to confess to you.”
Just as Dongfang Minghui was about to continue after practicing all night, she suddenly heard the low voice of Love Flower.
Dongfang Minghui’s head popped up with big question marks. Before she could ask, Love Flower confessed honestly, “Actually, the day you finished the assessment, I already noticed that someone was following you, but I didn’t warn you.”
Little Colour in her sea of souls shook its vines, testifying for Love Flower that they were plants so it made sense that their senses were dozens or even hundreds of times more developed than those of humans.
Dongfang Minghui scratched her head, a little confused, but still a little sad to hear what Love Flower had to say, her little friends seemed to have some reasoning for doing what they did the other day but it did make her a bit sad that they made her go through it despite knowing about it.
“When I followed you out of Death Valley I sensed something, if one day we’re all not around you anymore, you…”
She was sad, but she still listened carefully to Love flower, thinking that if one day she were to be in trouble without her friends, she would probably die no less than ten times. Thinking about it more, she might die even more times than that!
She was too dependent on her friends.
Dongfang Minghui was a little ashamed, thinking about it made tears well up in her eyes, but then she heard Love Flower ask, “Don’t you want me anymore?”
“How could I not want you.”
Dongfang Minghui wiped the corners of her eyes, so this was the reason for the recent mood swings of Love Flower.
“Ok then it’s agreed that you’ll take me with you wherever you go from now on. So when do we go to the Blood Fiend Alliance?”
Dongfang Minghui: “……”
This naughty flower was changing frequencies so fast she couldn’t catch up. She didn’t know if to laugh or cry saying, “As soon as I’ve practised my second skill, we’ll go.” She calculated that she would be able to defend herself by then.
She calculated that by then she would have the ability to defend herself and sneak into the Blood Fiend Alliance to take a look while being able to get away.
Dongfang Minghui practised until dawn, the sun was about to dawn as she put back the silver needles into the jade belt.
“I heard that at the other end of the Seven-colored Continent, there’s an incredibly poisonous plant called the gipsy grass, if you soak your needles in its juice as your secret weapon, if anyone bullies you in the future, you can just give them a few needles.” Love Flower said lightly.
Dongfang Minghui’s eyes twinkled, right, how could she have forgotten about this? But the other side of the Land of the Seven Colored continent?
“Where is that?”
“I don’t know.”
“It should be possible to try using other types of poison.” Dongfang Minghui thought gipsy grass was too far away from her, she hadn’t gone through the entire Seven Colored Continent even once, and ot wasn’t wise to leave the country rashly.
“Humans can use spiritual energy for protection, so it’s hard to hurt them with ordinary concealed weapons.” Love Flower gave an example of Mu Yang.
She had already wondered about why that day she had obviously shot the silver needle into Mu Yang’s body, yet the other party didn’t seem bothered and even managed to injure Seventh Sister.
“The poison of the gipsy grass is different, it can directly erode into a human’s soul sea, it is a very difficult to deal with venom.”
Dongfang Minghui immediately shivered when she heard what Love Flower said, she felt that this gipsy grass was a bit similar to the death aura.
“Love Flower, when I get back to the academy I’ll check to see if there is any other place to find it besides the one you mentioned.”
“I’m going out for a while, so stay in your room and don’t go anywhere, okay?” Qian Wanyu took her hand and touched it, and guessed that the other woman had been practising her skills for another night.
Dongfang Minghui wondered what the Female Protagonist could be up to when the competition was over and the next step was to wait for the White Moon Empire’s royal family to announce the winner list then they could receive their spiritual empowerment.
Not long after Qian Wanyu left, three people suddenly appeared in the small courtyard. Dongfang Minghui stunned, and then explained, “Lu Xing, Mu Sheng and Nan Nan, did you make an appointment with seventh sister? She just left.”
“We’re here to keep you company.” Nan Nan smiled.
Mu Sheng pulled Lu Xing to sit on a stone bench, “Sister Wanyu is afraid that you’ll get too bored in the small courtyard alone, so she asked us to come and play with you.”
Dongfang Minghui knew the Female Protagonist’s intention as soon as she thought about it, she probably thought that there would be fewer accidents if she had someone to watch over her lest she encounters yet another dangerous situation…
She suddenly felt warm in her heart as she watched them.
As soon as Qian Wanyu reached the street, she spotted the sign of the Rose House, and followed it all the way to a dark alley in the street.
“Slave Jing’er, has seen the young master of the building.”
This time the person who came to make the connection was a young girl, who looked as if she was still a maid in her costume.
“Why isn’t Aunt Mo here?”
“Head Mo said that she had discovered the whereabouts of the owner of the building, so she entrusted the matter to this slave to handle.”
“How are things going?”
The little girl whispered something in her ear, and Qian Wanyu nodded, “Take me there.”
Li Jing brought her into a private room, the window of which was slightly open with a slit, just enough to see clearly what was happening upstairs.
The room upstairs across the street was still empty.
Li Jing respectfully poured a cup of tea for her, “According to the young master’s explanation, we have already sent her a letter, asking her to meet us at the Qingfeng Tower Tea House.
After saying that, Li Jing stepped aside.
She had delivered her message to the Rose House that day after she had determined that the other party was indeed the one who wanted to harm Ninth Sister.
Today, she dug a big grave for Murong Qingyi.
As Li Jing said, Murong Qingyi appeared on the opposite side of the teahouse, and the teahouse assistant gave her a letter.
She was a little impatient, “Give it to me.”
She looked pale and bad-tempered, so the waiter immediately threw her hand away and handed the letter to the other hand, leaving her alone to read it.
“Didn’t you just receive it last month, why are you suddenly writing to me now?” Murong Qingyi complained as she opened the envelope.
As soon as the envelope was opened, a cloud of powder floated out, and Murong Qingyi immediately covered her nose, shook it, and took out a blank piece of paper from inside.
It was obvious that someone had played a trick on her.
Murong Qingyi was so furious that she was about to kick the door open with the intention of calling a waiter to explain.
As soon as she opened the door, she found two people, and she suddenly felt dizzy, and only a second before she fainted did she realize that there was something wrong with the letter.
“Young Master, the person has been captured, is it time to go over?” Li Jing came back and soon brought good news.
Li Jing led the way, the Rose House’s business was all over the Seven Colored Continent, and the White Moon Empire also had a few locations that were Rose House properties.
This time they walked into a building in a dreary area of the city, it was not yet afternoon, and there were fewer people around.
There were a few thugs at the back door, and when they saw her, they ignored them and went about their own business.
They approached a room on the third floor, which was similar to any other normal building.
Li Jing groped under the bed.
Qian Wanyu heard a slight sound of turning, and soon the bed was turned on its side, revealing the tunnel underneath.
“Young Master, the tunnel is a bit dark, please watch your step.”
The tunnel probably led somewhere else, but it was a bit long, so Qian Wanyu had to take a long flight of stairs down before she reached level ground.
Soon, she saw a faint light and saw two people standing guard outside a stone door.
Those two guards saw her and immediately greeted her.
Li Jing was at her side and immediately helped to order them, “Open it.”
Inside the stone door was another scene, chains tied up Murong Qingyi’s whole body very tightly.
Qian Wanyu looked around carefully and realized that this place was a small private torture chamber. In addition to the chains, she also saw many other torture instruments she had never seen before.
Li Jing brought a chair for her, “Young Master, please sit down and watch.”
“No need, I’ll do it myself.”
Qian Wanyu pointed to the person on the floor, “How many hours will the drug last?”
When Li Jing heard her ask, she immediately said, “Rose House has invented an antidote for it that allows people to wake up instantly, if the Young Master feels the need, I can go get it now.”
She didn’t want to waste so much of her time on Murong Qingyi, she wanted to get rid of this person quickly and bury her quickly…
But she still had a few questions she needed to ask her personally.
Li Jing quickly fetched a porcelain bottle, what was on it she didn’t know, but she saw the other party pinch Murong Qingyi’s mouth open and very roughly pour the liquid from the porcelain bottle into the other party’s mouth.
Murong Qingyi’s face turned bright red as her throat throbbed and she coughed, probably due to the strong dose of medicine in the vial.
She opened her eyes to find herself lying in a closed and unfamiliar place, she then saw a blurred figure, Murong Qingyi immediately tried to sit up straight but found herself locked down with chains.
“Where is this?”
One second she was disoriented, the next she was completely awake and screaming.
Qian Wanyu squatted down to check her out and asked, smiling, “Third Miss Murong, do you remember me?”
Qian Wanyu had been a prominent figure among the new students, and she was well known as a ruthless person, so how could she not recognize her?
What’s more, from the same town, she still remembered that this same person was abandoned by her family more than two years ago because her spiritual power had not yet awakened.
“Dongfang Wanyu,” Murong Qingyi looked like she wanted to eat the other party alive, then she laughed, “No, you even abandoned your family name, you’re now called Qian Wanyu, right?”
Qian Wanyu smiled indifferently, her resentment and hatred towards the Dongfang family seemed to have faded a lot with the appearance of Ninth Sister, at least when she heard the other party say Dongfang family, she was not thinking about how to destroy this family, but remembering what Ninth Sister said when she saved her from the Blood Fiend Alliance a few days ago – she wanted to go home to take a look.
“Do you know why I’ve brought you here today?” She took out the whip on her belt and asked with a sneer.
Murong Qingyi’s eyes wavered, “You actually dare to kidnap me, if my father knew about it, just see how he would deal with your family.”
Qian Wanyu laughed as if she had heard a big joke, and in the next second, the water lightning whip in her hand swung towards the other party’s head.
Just as the long whip was about to touch the other party’s head, she gently moved her wrist downward, and the end of the whip hooked directly into the other party’s face, taking away a piece of flesh, and instantly her face was blurred with blood and flesh scraped off, looking very hideous.
“Ah, my face hurts!” Murong Qingyi rolled all over the ground in pain, she was completely unaware that this punishment had just begun.
Li Jing beside her didn’t blink an eye.
“Tsk, sorry, I just missed, I was going to just smack that face of yours, and then-”
Qian Wanyu looked at the blood stains on the top of the whip and, with a disgusted face, pulled out a cloth from within her space ring and wiped it off.
“Jing, treat her well.”
Murong Qingyi watched in fear as Li Jing stepped forward, and she shouted, “Dongfang Wanyu what do you want?”
“What do I want?” Qian Wanyu found her question very strange and motioned with her eyes for Li Jing to stop, and she asked curiously, “Do you like Li Yunan?”
Murong Qingyi gulped, she couldn’t understand Qian Wanyu’s purpose, “Yes, what’s wrong with me liking him? Are you the only one who likes him?”
In the Academy, she knew that the other party was also in the Hall of Thunder, in the same hall as Li Yunan, and that both of them were well-known people in the Academy.
Many people consciously paired them up, and she naturally regarded the other as an imaginary enemy, who would’ve thought that the object of Li Yunan’s confession was actually Dongfang Minghui.
“What’s the point of catching me if you like him? You should go to Dongfang Minghui, she’s the one who stole Li Yunan, not me.”
A cold light flashed in Qian Wanyu’s eyes, “Is that why you tried to kill my Minghui again and again and again?”
Murong Qingyi shivered, she felt that the person in front of her was nothing like the one two years ago, she shook her head desperately and defended, “No, I didn’t want to kill her.”
She had the audacity to even follow up bad mouthing Minghui, “Besides, weren’t you bullied by Dongfang Minghui in the Dongfang family before, you should have looked for her first.”
Qian Wanyu enjoyed the other party’s frightened appearance, she slapped the right side of her face heavily, “You don’t want to admit it, do you?
After saying that, she released her spiritual energy with her left hand and shot it hard into Murong Qingyi’s abdomen.
“Ah, pain, you you p-please stop.”
While the screams rose and fell, Qian Wanyu looked at the person rolling around in pain on the ground with admiration.
“Do you know why you’re in so much pain?”
The silver needles from Ninth Sister’s jade belt were handpicked by her, so the arrows of the needles were barbed, unlike the needles used in ordinary sewing clothes, once they entered her body, those with less spiritual power would suffer, like this, it would churn around in her intestines and make her want to die.
Murong Qingyi nodded, “Please, I admit, I admit that I wanted to kill her.”
But, didn’t it not work out in the end?
Seeing her admission, Qian Wanyu stopped, “You had to kill her because of Li Yunan?”
Murong Qingyi was really afraid of Qian Wanyu, her being a big miss from a relatively large family had always been domineering, she had never been bullied before.
“Yes, I’m not used to Yunan always floating around her, every time I see them together, I just want to kill Dongfang Minghui.”
They had only met twice, the first time, when she heard that Yunan had come to the White Moon Empire she wanted to look for him, she saw him with the two sisters of the Dongfang family, and he also showed his care to Dongfang Minghui, that trash, in public.
The second time, when she participated in the competition, she saw the other party clinging to Yunan again. That’s why she made up her mind to get rid of her.
The vicious light in her eyes made Qian Wanyu very uncomfortable. Qian Wanyu could not bear but want to gouge out this woman’s eyes, she did not want to see that look again.
As Mu Sheng had expected, Murong Qingyi didn’t hate Dongfang Minghui because of the hatred from meeting before, but because of the fuse, Li Yunan’s love.
“Jing, help me entertain her.”
Ninth Sister had been frightened so many times by this woman that there was no reason to let her get away with it, Qian Wanyu felt the desire to devour within her growing stronger.
“Wanyu, calm down.” Qing Mo also found that the other party was very violent on a few occasions, it was probably also related to the loss of Spiritual Energy from the seven-coloured stone, once her dark Spiritual Energy grows, it could easily affect a Spiritual Master’s emotions, amplifying the dark side of the other party’s heart. In the long run, something would really happen from this sort of hidden danger.
“Ah, I’ve said it all why are yo-.”
“Ah – you still want to beg now?”
Li Jing’s tactics were also very ruthless, each whip was directed at Murong Qingyi’s softest spot.
Inside the stone room, a burst of screams sounded out but did not affect Qian Wanyu’s cultivation in the slightest as she tried to suppress her turbulent emotions.
When she opened her eyes again, Murong Qingyi was already half-dead, screaming so much that her voice was gone.
She had to shout to stop before Li Jing put down the whip, after these hundreds of lashes, the other party still stared at her with those sort of eyes, this person, really death wasn’t enough for such a spiteful person.
“Wanyu, the deposit for the Blood Fiend Alliance is not cheap.” Qing Mo suddenly said, “Go see how Murong Qingyi, a young lady from a small family, could suddenly be capable of hiring five assassins from the Blood Fiend Alliance.”
Qian Wanyu looked at Murong Qingyi thoughtfully, “Murong Qingyi, I’ll give you a chance to live.”
Murong Qingyi opened her mouth, but her eyes were still staring at the other party, as if asking, what chance?
“If you tell me the details of how you wanted to kill Ninth Sister, I’ll give you a chance to escape.”
As soon as she heard the opportunity, Murong Qingyi immediately opened her mouth, probably because her voice had been injured earlier.
Qian Wanyu directly said, “Li Jing, give her a recovery pill.”
“Yes, Young Master.”
Murong Qingyi guessed that she must have been identified by Qian Wanyu because she had followed Dongfang Minghui to the lake that time and was hit by the other party’s hidden weapon, and Qian Wanyu had repeatedly tried to identify her from that.
“I saw her dazed and surrounded by five people, so I secretly pinned her down in the water from behind, and when she was struggling, I fired a secret weapon at her.
Qian Wanyu stared at her silently, making the scalp of Murong Qingyi go numb from fear.
“Really, what I said is the truth.”
“There’s nothing else?”
It is possible that the other side decided that she had only known about this one incident, and therefore denied the other two assassination attempts.
Qian Wanyu thought this scenario was very likely.
