Chapter 11 — The Peak of Rank Eight


"Ninth Miss must be teasing, how could this subordinate dare not recognize young miss? However, as per First Madam\'s wishes, this subordinate has no choice but to offend young miss by handing young miss over to Sixth Miss." As Wu Gang spoke, Yun Wu happened to catch a faint glimmer of murderous intent lurking in the depths of his eyes.


He extended his hand and seized her.


A cold light flashed in Yun Wu\'s eyes. She moved, just about to break from his grasp, but Wu Gang seemed to have been waiting for this maneuver as he channeled a flow of insidious dark energy into his palm and abruptly thrust his hand towards her chest.


Yun Wu\'s heart shook. She attempted to dodge but found her opponent fast and ruthless, catching her off-guard.


Suddenly.


Shua, shua… Two streaks of chilling light shot through the air, pinpointed at Wu Gang, promptly causing his expression to change. At once, he performed a somersault to evade. Just as he dodged, he saw two exquisite knives lodged deeply into the ground—precisely, the spot he had been standing on.


If he had not dodged, those two knives would\'ve ripped into the fatal points of his head and neck. This sudden turn of events launched all the surrounding guards into a vigilant search, but they found no trace of the perpetrator.


"Who?" Wu Gang bellowed loudly, his expression sinking. Then, he suddenly discovered the item he had been keeping in his arms was gone, and that instantly caused his expression to shift. He lowered his head and hurriedly scoured the ground before finally seeing a small, wooden box nestled in a nearby flowering shrub. It turned out he had dropped it while he was somersaulting.


He hastened over to retrieve it, but another silhouette beat him to it.


Immediately after procuring the wooden box, Yun Wu drew it into her embrace. Regardless of what the box contained, to be able to make Wu Gang and Liu Qingyue\'s expressions undergo such drastic changes, the box\'s contents must not be simple.


"Ninth Miss, please give that item back to me." Wu Gang\'s figure flashed and reappeared in front of Yu Wun, his face completely dark as he stuck out his hand, palm up.


Yun Wu took a step back, smiling widely as she asked innocently, "What item? I don\'t see any items, just a mad dog barking at its master."


Wu Gang\'s eyes chilled with murder. "Since Ninth Miss is oblivious, then don\'t blame this subordinate for personally performing a search." He stretched out a swift and violent hand, intending to pull apart her clothes and take back his item.


Yun Wu drew back a step, murderous intent in her eyes. Straight on, she was in no way his opponent, but in close combat, she dared say she had a 60% chance of success.


However, at that moment.


Shua, shua, shua… Four streaks of cold light dashed down from the sky, and this time, the knives\' origin was revealed.


On the roof, there towered a fluttering white-robed figure. A head of silver hair danced in the wind, his bewitching face adorned with a wicked smile.


He clicked his tongue. "Such a large crowd of old and young women bullying a little girl, what a good show."


Right after his devilish and magnetic voice sounded, Yun Wu turned her head and looked up. When she saw the man standing with the wind, her heart couldn\'t resist a quiver.


It\'s him? The yaone1"妖孽" = A term used to describe enchanting beings who are able to entice others into doing questionable things, similar to a seductress. The common translation is \'evildoer\'. from the forest.


Yun Wu\'s willowy brows furrowed.


Why is he here?


The instant Long Qing Xie\'s figure appeared, all of the gathered women fell into a sudden stupor.


What a beautiful and bewitching man…!


Wu Gang swept the knives from the ground. As a poison expert himself, he could tell that the knives had been submerged in poison beforehand. The victim\'s throat would, without delay, be sealed, and judging from the finesse of the man\'s throwing, he could most definitely rival Wu Gang, if not surpa.s.s.


His square face a haze of anger, Wu Gang shot a look at the silver-haired man. "Who are you? To dare break into General Manor, how reckless."


His angered voice had just fallen when General Manor\'s guards surged from all sides and an array of archers appeared out of nowhere.


"Shoot!" Wu Gang commanded without giving the man on the roof any time to react.


Sou, sou, sou.. Countless arrows fired at once, all flying in the direction of the man, but facing the onslaught of arrows, everyone present could see that the man was still smiling mischievously and not moving at all. He continued to stand in the wind, silver hair fluttering, elegant as an immortal. Below, Yun Wu saw this and scrunched her brows.


Was he brain dead? At this point, what was he still trying to act elegant for?


Having said that, shocked surprise then appeared in her eyes. Right before the arrows scored, dazzling, brilliant rays of purple brought rise to a fluctuation of odd energy. All of the arrows that came in contact with the purple light were snapped and destroyed.


Long Qing Xie, dangerously enchanting, stood with his body enveloped in a blinding halo, and he also exuded an arrogance that suggested his disdain towards the world, an imposing manner and haughty overlook of the overarching sky.


Wu Gang\'s original face of rage contorted into one of utmost astonishment. "Innate Purple Rank? Peak of Rank Eight?" Even he could not discern the man\'s attribute. The man\'s age clearly did not surpa.s.s the early twenties either, how could that be possible?


At this moment, Long Qing Xie held back his imposing manner and lifted the corners of his mouth. "Relax, relax. Don\'t raise your guards like I\'m a great enemy or something, I just so happened to pa.s.s by and conveniently dropped in to watch the show. Just treat it as though I do not exist and do whatever you want."


Watch the show?


Do not exist?


VIN: Okay, I can’t think of anything else to describe the MC aside from savage.


LQX: Stands loftily, gracefully in the wind as a barrel of arrows fly towards him.


YW: Are you, are you dumb?


Not to mention her “I only see a mad dog barking at its master.” LQX is a c.o.c.ky one too.
