“Ling Yu? Someone from the Ling family?”
Gu Ruoyun stared blankly for a moment at the richly dressed girl who was directing an angry gaze at her.
Actually, she had seen Ling Yu only once. The first time Gu Ruoyun had gone to Hundred Herb Hall, she had met with the incident where Ling Yu had gotten thrown out of Hundred Herb Hall after causing trouble. Even after she had been forced by Old Man Ling to apologise, she was still getting ignored by Hundred Herb Hall.
She hadn’t thought that she would meet Ling Yu here.
“What are you doing here?”
Due to the mess with Ling Xi, when Ling Yu looked at Gu Ruoyun, it was as if she had met her nemesis. Her sharp dagger-like gaze shot towards the girl standing at the entrance, hating the fact that she couldn’t scar that pretty face.
Gu Ruoyun’s glance swept across Ling Yu before landing on the middle-aged man in front of her, and she said: “How much is this courtyard?”
However, before the middle-aged man could speak, Ling Yu’s mocking voice sounded.
“You little bitch, don’t think that you can act as if you’re something after entering Hundred Herb Hall! You’re just a servant in that place, did you think you could snatch this courtyard away from me by using Hundred Herb Hall’s reputation? Let me tell you, I’m buying this place for the crown prince. He’s been thinking of moving out of the palace recently. The crown prince is a member of the Weapon Refining Sect, no matter how strong Hundred Herb Hall is, it can’t beat the Weapon Refining Sect. Furthermore, Hundred Herb Hall wouldn’tpossibly make an enemy out of the Weapon Refining Sect just for a little servant like you!”
Ling Yu raised her chin proudly as she spoke with utmost arrogance.
Her teeth would ache with hatred whenever she thought of how she had been thrown out of Hundred Herb Hall.
However, it was fine. Once she becomes the crown prince’s consort, then a tiny Hundred Herb Hall would become her possession! By then, as a mere worker in Hundred Herb Hall, Gu Ruoyun would be a pawn in her hands!
“How much is this courtyard?”
Gu Ruoyun seemed not to have heard Ling Yu’s words, as she continued asking.
“Gu Ruoyun, this lady is speaking to you, yet you have the guts to ignore me!”
Ling Yu was so angry that her face turned red. She glared angrily at Gu Ruoyun.
Finally, Gu Ruoyun had some sort of reaction, she raised an eyebrow as she looked at Ling Yu. With a smile, she said: “So you were talking to me? Sorry, I thought you were talking to yourself.”
Ling Yu almost spit up a mouthful of blood, with an ashen face and an indignant gaze, she gritted her teeth as she said: “Gu Ruoyun, I advise you to scram! You can’t afford this courtyard! Furthermore, you don’t have the right to fight with His Highness, the crown prince!”
All of a sudden, a sharp sword shot forward and pressed against Ling Yu’s neck. Her body turned icy cold in an instant. When she raised her head, she met with a pair of haughty and indifferent eyes.
“You had better shut your mouth! Or else…”
Xunfeng gazed coldly at Ling Yu as he said frostily.
“You… don’t you know who I am? The imperial concubine is my aunt, you actually dared to threaten me! Wait till I go back and tell my aunt, I’ll get my aunt to execute your entire clan!”
Xunfeng’s eyes darkened for a moment. Suddenly, he sneered: “I don’t care if your aunt is the imperial concubine or the empress. Anyone who offends Master should just die!”
In the eyes of that young man, Ling Yu saw killing intent.
That’s right. This guy really wanted to kill her, and wasn’t trying to scare her off at all!
In an instant, Ling Yu’s face turned pale from fright. Her legs couldn’t stop trembling, and she couldn’t finish speaking even a single word.
“Xunfeng, I’m here to conduct business. As for anything else, let’s settle it next time.” Gu Ruoyun glanced at Xunfeng as she spoke.
Hearing so, Xunfeng retracted his killing intent.
It was obvious that Ling Yu heaved a sigh of relief. Just now, in that instant, she had clearly felt Death coming for her.
