Chapter 107 – Shaken to the core (5)
Three fireballs shot towards the delicious-smelling roasting rabbit, and in a split second, that shiny, browned roasting rabbit was turned into a black ashy lump.
The roasting twig holding up the rabbit broke, a- snap – sound rang out. That black ashy lump dropped to the ground, disintegrating into fine powder which then scattered to the wind.
“…” The veins on Su Luo’s hands bulged.
“…” Little Meng Meng’s face seemed dumbfounded.
Not waiting for Su Luo to exert her authority as the owner, little Meng Meng had already rolled to the ground and started to wail: “awoo awoo”. He looked heartbreakingly at the powderized “rabbit,” crocodile tears flowed down and misted over his eyes. He turned his head around, and in a very wronged and innocent manner, stared at her accusingly.
Su Luo: “…” Why did it seem as if she was the one who did something wrong?
Just when Su Luo was still speechless, suddenly, she felt the danger of a human’s presence. She picked up little Meng Meng and turned around to run, but found that it was already too late.
She didn’t know when it had happened, but now, all around her was a troop of ten people; who tightly surrounded her.
Every member in this troop had their entire body shrouded by a black cloak; it was impossible to see their features clearly. They had a cruel and bloodthirsty aura that gave off a cold and detached impression to people.
Could it be that the Jade Lake’s fairy had again sent people to murder her?
Hugging little Meng Meng to her, Su Luo’s heart secretly cried out bitterly. Previously, those people had come at her separately, so she could still use her wits to bravely fight each opponent one by one. But now, she was suddenly swarmed by about ten people. It would be difficult for her two fists to withstand their four legs.
Just as a bitter expression started to take over Su Luo’s face, suddenly, the leader of those people, with his deep cold voice, issued out: “Could your distinguished self be Miss Su?”
Su Luo suspected even more that these people were sent by the Jade Lake’s fairy.
Able to send out such a team, among the prominent people she had offended, other than the Jade Lake’s fairy, who else was there?
Could she deny this? Very clearly she could not.
This was because the leader of these person actually took out a picture scroll from within his chest area. He looked back and forth, comparing Su Luo to the image on the picture scroll. Finally, he rolled up the picture scroll and placed it back. His pair of dark, solemn eyes looked towards Su Luo without a trace of warmth. “Come with us.”
They weren’t going to kill her on the spot?
Su Luo’s heart was secretly on guard. Rationally speaking, Er Huang had already died, so the Jade Lake Palace’s people wouldn’t know her secret now, thus they had no reason to leave her alive.
Could it be, they weren’t people sent by the Jade Lake’s fairy? Then who could that person who sent them be?
Su Luo’s heart become more alert, she softly asked. “Who sent you guys?” They actually had a picture scroll!
“No comment.” Responded the leader of the group of people, whose indifference was like an Asura that came from hell. His appearance was of a person who had lived for a long time in the dark shadows, giving off a brooding, bloodthirsty, icy aura.
Other people might view this type of person with mind-numbing fear. However, Su Luo had also lived in that dark world as a gold medal level assassin, in her previous world. Thus, she knew this feeling well, and it gave her a feeling of familiarity and comfort.
“Ok, I’ll go with you.” Since resistance was futile, she could only go with them.
Although Su Luo’s expression was indifferent, her heart had relaxed some.
The ten people surrounded her, with her in the center, so as to keep a close watch over her, while also protecting her. Even though she felt a bloodthirsty, cold atmosphere from their bodies. That was their aura from having resided in the dark world for a long time, not a killing intent aimed at her.
At this time, hiding behind an ancient tree was Qin Ning, who was so angry that she nearly spit out blood.
She had followed the tracks looking for Su Luo, but what she couldn’t believe was that along the way, she could only find Cui Yu and Er Huang’s corpses. In all likelihood, Nen Lu had probably ended up in the same disastrous state.
While that Su Luo was actually safe and secure. She was even so carefree as to leisurely roast a rabbit!
This discovery caused Qin Ning to almost grind her teeth into dust!
Qin Ning didn’t know that those ten people in black robes were his highness Prince Jin’s secret troops. However, she had a hunch that if Su Luo was taken away by them, information about Young Mistress wanting to kill Su Luo would be divulged. Then this matter could definitely affect the feelings and trust between the Young Mistress and Prince Jin.
Therefore, this time, Su Luo had to die!
Qin Ning was concealed within the lush leaves on top of the ancient tree. Her arms pulling the string of a bent bow. A sharp feathered arrow emitted a dim radiance in the dark night.
