Chapter 140 – Silencing People (2)

Zhong Rushuang and company did not think too much about the other party’s intentions. Her group was only somewhat fearful of those boys accompanying the Ancestor. As for other children, they did not care about them at all.

Let alone fearing a child who spoke in a frail way and looked like a little doll. With the way she followed Number Two, it was clear that she was not one of the Ancestor’s servants. Since this was the case, what were they still afraid of?

One of the handsome youths even started joking around. “Number Two, you didn’t kidnap or swindle this little lady into marrying you as your little wife, right? With such an intelligent looking small face, her little hands must be as skilled.”

Number Two froze, unconsciously he wanted to retort immediately.

However, Ning Xuemo turned her head and glanced at these people with her eyes widened. She grumbled with her little voice. “Definitely not!” Although she denied it, her little face became red.

This was simply disguised acknowledgement!

All four of them looked at each other while laughing inside. This little girl was still so inexperienced…

Initially, Zhong Rushuang was still a bit suspicious and guarded against Ning Xuemo and Number Two, but at this moment, she completely let her guard down.

……

It did not take much time to roast everything, and all four of them shared the same thought. The food looks delicious, further stimulating their appetite.

The round faced young woman became impatient. She grabbed onto the hare and was about to eat it.

“Slow down.” Zhong Rushuang stopped her and pricked the meat with a silver needle which came out from nowhere. After she took out the needle, she observed that the needle was still as bright as before. This allowed her to be relieved. She gave back the hare to the round faced girl…

It was obvious that she was extremely paranoid. She did the same thing with all the food going to be eaten by her juniors, confirming that the food was harmless. Only then, would her heart be relieved.

Like a single wind that could destroy clouds, it also did not take much effort and time for all the roasted game to be completely eaten clean, only the bones remaining.

Zhong Rushuang got up and said, “Thank you for the food. We should go.” She sent a meaningful glance at the others in her group.

The other three also stood up and hastily bid farewell to Ning Xuemo and Number Two before walking into the depths of the jungle.

Ning Xuemo was still waving at them cordially as they left. “Big brothers and big sisters, take care! I hope you can soon find what you are looking for.”

‘Since when did that little girl become an enthusiastic boot licker?’

Number Two could not help but glance at her, just to discover the words she rapidly wrote on the ground: “Be careful of their sneak attack! Retreat to the thicket of brambles!”

Number Two was shocked! Misfortune befell them in the blink of an eye!

Four golden rays of light followed by four silhouettes suddenly attacked them!

Powerful like thunder and fast as lightning, the attacks were aimed at Ning Xuemo’s and Number Two’s vital points. It was clear that the attacks were meant to claim their lives. The ruthlessness of the attacks did not allow them any leeway to escape from death!

Fortunately, with Ning Xuemo’s warning Number Two had his guard up and flew back in retreat before plunging inside the cluster of brambles. His actions seemed as if he panicked and did not plan to escape that way.

With their combined force Zhong Rushuang did not expect that they could not reap the lives of two people at one fell swoop. When she lifted her head to locate her opponents, Ning Xuemo and Number Two were already on the thorns above the brambles, looking down on them.

The little girl appeared to be incredibly angry and asked them with widened eyes, “Why do you want to kill us?”

Since their sneak attack failed, Zhong Rushuang no longer hid her intentions and bluntly said, “Because you must die!”

They must obtain the crystal core inside the Flying Dragon Centipede.

However, they did not want to incur the wrath of Chang Kong Country’s imperial family. Thus, they must silence these two to spare themselves any future trouble.

The round faced young woman sneered, “At first, on account of you cooking for us, we were thinking about ending your misery quickly. We did not think that you two were so untactful, so don’t blame us for being ruthless!”

“Be sensitive, and stop struggling so pointlessly. Be obedient and accept your death!” One of the young men in white spoke as a complacent smile appeared on his face.

  • FallingStar

    Thanks for the chapter desu~

  • doh

    you are the ones who should accept your deaths, you’re all poisoned kkk
    you vulgar thieves dare attempt to murder them to get rid of the evidence
    covertly, of course, for fear of offending the 6th prince

  • 4Crosses

    noo, this cliff xD but thanks for the chapters 😀
    And What the hell, they are 70+ and act like fucking elementary schoolers. Why is it that in this Novel, the older the people are, the more childish they become? Even the ancestor seemed like some upstart cultivator xD
    You would think those people saw many things and became somewhat wise, but no, no, 1000+ an still acting like a mob character

  • ☆ Myu ☆

    The number of evil people in this small world is too large…

  • lol
    as always thank you for the amazing chapter :3
    this was no cliff…

  • DC

    This whole time, I was thinking, she served them food. What is the title of this story again?

  • Katrina-Marie Medrano

    They are lazy, so they decide to kill Ning Xuemo and Number 2…I wonder what poison was placed in the food. I wonder also if Number 2 was momentarily glad that he was mistaken as being married to Ning Xuemo. Number 2’s master would be jealous…still dislike that prince though. Thanks for this.

    • I wish the author gave at least one sentence or even half a sentence about Number Two’s reaction like…Number Two found himself smiling or his cheeks also reddened. I dunno.

      • Grenn

        Meh… As long as he doesn’t have a proper name, I don’t think he will count as something more than a side-character. In the raws, his name is literally “Imperial bodyguard #2”.
        The first question would be, would he be able to evolve from character A to side-character with a name.

    • DC

      70 year olds reacting like that. Makes you question the fact that cultivators who have lived thousand of years often act like little kids.

      • Neruz

        Cultivators typically spend months or years on end locked up by themselves in secluded cultivation, it’s astonishing their maturity was just stunted and they aren’t totally insane.

        Like go and read some Xianxia novels that start out with the protag at young age and then imagine what living like that as a child would do to a person. They also live in a world where it is actually possible for someone to throw a temper tantrum, run away to hide for awhile and then come back with the strength to crush his enemies beneath him.

        Cultivation primarily just makes you able to exert greater amounts of force; when you spend your entire life learning how to inflict violence and devastation every problem looks like it could be solved using those means.

        • DC

          Trust me when I say I read a lot of Xianxia. I still can’t get over how shameless cultivators are or how easily they flip out over the smallest things. Also how generic most MCs are. Males = reincarnated/amazing treasure/amazing teacher, chick magnet, never punished for mistakes, wins through guts. Females = poison expert/thief, ruthless and intelligent, guy magnet.

          • Neruz

            That’s because the genre has its origins in teenage power fantasies, it’s supposed to appeal to teenage chinese men and women who can self-insert and live vicariously through the character, hence the common themes of rebelling against authority and being super awesome.

            The Western equivalent to ‘traditional’ Xianxia is your standard tween fantasy; stuff like Harry Potter, Eragon or Twilight. Which explains why the quality of writing, especially with regards to romance and plot, is so often kind of crappy.

          • Grenn

            Ning Xuemo is pretty much mold in clichés. XD As long as the story is enjoyable, why not?

    • 4Crosses

      maybe something like 2 component poison? The parts itself are not poisonous, but when they interact its insta-kill. Maybe something like that :p

  • “Although she denied it, her little face became red.”

    She blushed?! Wah~~ Someone help me breathe.
