Chapter 28: The Cunning Ling Family Meets Danger (3)
“Gu Ruoyun, did you do it on purpose? Did you deliberately allow me to bully and suppress you? Then you threw a challenge at me so that you could reverse everything and win? And then crush me with your strength? What kind of grudge and hatred do we have between us, that it was worth spending so many years painstakingly hiding just so that you could humiliate me?”
Obviously, Ling Xi was overthinking it. He thought that Gu Ruoyun had hidden her strength just to find a chance to humiliate him thoroughly.
Of course. Gu Ruoyun had always been lazy to explain anything to insignificant people, so her silence looked like agreement to Ling Xi.
“Ahhhhhhh! Gu Ruoyun, I want to kill you!”
Ling Xi roared in anger and climbed up from the ground. He raised his arms– at that moment, a golden rune appeared in his hands, the rune exuded a faint light, setting off the grim expression on his face.
“This is the Ling family’s only rune… The Ling family spent a lot of money to buy this from an expert for the sake of transporting my grandfather to me when I meet any danger. So, Gu Ruoyun, this time, you’re dead!”
As his words fell, Ling Xi ripped the rune apart…
A golden light flashed, and immediately, in front of everyone, Ling Yi appeared out of nowhere.
After seeing his grandfather appear, Ling Xi let out a sigh of relief, before hurriedly complaining. “Grandfather, quickly save your grandson! If I hadn’t brought along the teleportation rune that grandfather gave me, then I probably wouldn’t have been able to see grandfather ever again…”
“Oh?” Ling Yi’s expression sunk bit by bit and darkened. He asked: “Who was so bold to dare to harm the blood of my Ling family?”
Whoosh whoosh whoosh!
In a moment, everyone’s gazes turned towards Gu Ruoyun. Following their eyes, Ling Yi found the girl who had not moved from start to end.
The Gu family’s girl?
He frowned: “Xi-er, this Gu family’s girl is only a Qi level 3, don’t tell me that you can’t even beat her?”
“It’s not like that, grandfather, the Gu family concealed her strength. With one strike, she defeated all of us here. Her strength is definitely not just Qi level 3, it should be at level 6 or 7, and,” Ling Xi hesitated, before sneering, “She wants to kill me, not just because she has a grudge against me, but she even wants to end our Ling family’s bloodline! Grandfather, you definitely can’t let such a crafty and vicious person live!”
Wild anger burst out from Ling Yi’s body, and his eyes watched Gu Ruoyun coldy: “Girl, having such a vicious heart at such a young age, leaving you alive would just end up hurting others. For the sake of saving the innocent, then… this old man can only kill you first and avoid disaster later on!”
The overcast aura was not only limited to his surroundings; the people around started to feel that the air had become thin, that there was an external pressure pushing on them.
Gu Ruoyun’s heart sank.
At her current strength, she had no way to battle with Ling Yi. The only plan she had left was to escape!
Thinking of this, Gu Ruoyun laughed twice. That smile spread from the corners of her lips, carrying a trace of mockery.
“So this is the Ling family? When the little ones can’t win their battles, the elders come up? This has really been eye-opening for me! Ling Yi, I, Gu Ruoyun, will remember today’s debt! There’ll eventually be a day when I come to collect it from your Ling family!”
At this moment, the girl’s thin face showed off a wildly domineering aura. That regal air, even the current emperor didn’t have such an aura. Watching in a trance, Ling Yi seemed like he was seeing a long absent and familiar face on her…
That absolute genius of ten years ago, Gu Tian! That startlingly brilliant person, the mainland’s youngest martial emperor, the current Gu Ruoyun looked so much like him…
No way, he absolutely could not let this woman continue living, it was too dangerous!
TL Note: Martial emperor is 5 ranks above the Qi collection levels! You can check the glossary for cultivation ranks and names!
