Chapter 10 — The Peak of Rank Six

Immediately, Wu Gang thrust out his foot and sent out a powerful ray of green battle spirit that single-handedly latched onto the whip in Yun Qing Er’s hands.

“Sixth Miss, please cease your anger.”

“Housekeeper Wu, let go. Today, no matter what, I must have this s.l.u.t dismembered.” Yun Qing Er fumed, her eyes red with roaring anger.

“Qing Er, even with your Great Aunt standing here, you’re still kicking up a storm for! Don’t be so insensible! Quick, come here.” Liu Qinshui hurriedly chastised while shooting Yun Qing Er a meaningful glance.

Normally, Yun Qing Er would comply—but this time, she was too far gone and exploding with anger.

“Great Aunt, Mother, neither of you know. Last time, that Tier II Elemental Wind Pill I lost was eaten by this s.l.u.t, Yun Wu. I refuse to calm down until I kill her.” The moment Yun Qing Er mentioned her missing Tier II Elemental Pill, Liu Qingyue stiffened. Her eyes flashed.

Although it was a minute reaction, it was a trifle when faced with an a.s.sa.s.sin’s discerning eyes. Yun Wu swept a dark glance at Liu Qingyue as Yun Wu sneered coldly in her heart.

Looks like she, Yun Wu, not only had to tolerate having s.h.i.t poured over her head1, but she was also made to carry another’s blame.

“What? That Tier II Elemental Wind Pill you lost was eaten by her?” Liu Qinshui’s voice rose in anger. She was clear on what that Tier II Elemental Wind Pill would’ve meant for the mother-daughter pair. Immediately, her countenance became one of rage.

She spun her head towards Liu Qingyue: “Biaojie2. This time, whether in private or public, you have to punish this b.i.t.c.h and give my daughter and I justice.”

“Great Aunt, if you hand the matter of this little b.i.t.c.h’s punishment over to me, then during the imperial hunting tournament next month, I’ll definitely lend Third Sister a winning hand.” Yun Qing Er promised through gritted teeth.

This year, the imperial family was holding a hunting tournament for children of n.o.ble status.

Nominally, it was a friendly pastime; in reality, its purpose was to allow the imperial family to pick out a few suitable candidates for the imperial princes to choose from, with the tournament winner gaining an opportunity to become the crown prince’s consort, the crown princess.

All nine misses of Yun Manor were eligible for partic.i.p.ation, but the only ones who were truly qualified to take part in the tournament consisted of a mere trio: the most talented Eldest Miss Yun Xin Er, the legitimate Third Miss Yun Lingshui, and the Sixth Miss, Yun Qing Er.

For Yun Qing Er to make such a promise meant she was willing to relinquish her chance at being the crown princess in order to help Yun Lingshui. One could imagine just how angry Yun Qing Er was.

When Liu Qinshui heard, her expression changed.

When Liu Qingyue heard, she was pleased at heart but concealed it well.

Under everyone’s watchful eyes, Liu Qingyue frowned, then sighed and waved her hand. “Forget it, forget it. Since Yun Wu ate your Tier II pill, I’ll let you decide the consequences. However, don’t go overboard; after all, she is still Yun Manor’s Ninth Miss.”

Yun Qing Er laughed cruelly. “Great Aunt, rest a.s.sured. Even if I don’t kill her, I’ll ensure she’ll never have the mouth to steal food again.”

At her remark, everyone present understood that if Yun Wu were to fall into Yun Qing Er’s hands, Yun Wu would live a life worse than death. However, no one present took pity on Yun Wu. Rather, quite a few were interested in watching a show.

On the side, Yun Wu listened to their conversation and couldn&rsq

uo;t help but sneer in her heart. Being chased into Yun Manor was intentional on her part. She had three reasons for doing so: to uncover Yun Qing Er’s backer, to figure out why she was made a scapegoat, and to sniff out who was most likely to have poisoned her.

She had obtained a good grasp on the workings of the play happening in front of her, so it was time to retreat.

She, Yun Wu, was not a master to be bullied. Obediently let Yun Qing Er kill her? They’ve still got a long way to go.

“Ninth Miss, I’m afraid you can’t leave yet.”

Just as Yun Wu turned to leave, Wu Gang suddenly stepped in front of her, blocking her path of retreat.

Information from her acquired memories stated:

Wu Gang: Innate Green Rank, peak of Rank Six.

Attribute: Wind.

Weapon of Choice: Broadsword.

Wind attribute?

No wonder he was able to soundlessly appear in front her in the blink of an eye. If he wanted to kill her, it would presumably be as easy as turning his hand.

Martial pract.i.tioners specialize in battle spirit; strong bodily defense and formidable combat ability. Division: Pract.i.tioner Ranks 1 through 9, Martial Master, Martial Sage, and Martial Honor. Every level was divided into the following: initial-stage, medial-stage, late-stage, and peak.

Currently, in Zhou Dynasty, a Pract.i.tioner who was at the peak of Rank Six was already considered an expert.

The five attributes: Wind, wood, water, earth, and fire.

The seven innate colors: Red, orange, yellow, green, teal, blue, and purple as highest.

Together these factors came down to: the role this Housekeeper Wu played in Yun Manor was not simple. Furthermore, his background ident.i.ty was likely even more complicated.

“Housekeeper Wu, you still know I’m the Ninth Miss?” Yun Wu raised her head, lips slightly curved as she met his sharp and gloomy eyes with her own cold gaze.

Wu Gang looked at her and was unable to restrain his eyebrow from wrinkling when he saw her bottomless eyes.

A quick second later, Yun Wu’s body resumed its former appearance; sick and weak, without a trace of battle spirit, but Wu Gang felt a strange premonition in his heart.

It was as if her continued existence would end up spoiling his grand plans.
