Chapter 137 – Grandmaster (1)
When her delicate palm swept across the the tip of the spear, a glaring streak of blood appeared on her fair skin.
Drip. Drip. Trickling down her hand, drop after drop of blood landed on the floor, each one of them slowly blossoming like a crimson flower.
Zhan Fei narrowed his eyes. He just couldn’t figure out what was going through Ji Fengyan’s mind.
On the other side, Su Lingsheng secretly cackled with glee. In her mind, Ji Fengyan had been scared witless and was looking for death.
“On the account that we’re both life exterminators, if you’re willing to obediently hand over the Timeless Affection Flower and also give me Yang Jian’s life, then I can spare you from death.” Zhan Fei stated coldly.
“And if I don’t?” She asked.
“To those who defy the Eldest Princess’ orders….”
Zhan Fei’s deep voice carried a powerful killing intent.
Off to the side, Ling He and others were completely drenched with sweat. Although they knew that they weren’t a match for Zhan Fei, all of them were already preparing to charge forward to save Ji Fengyan before he attacked.
As for Gong Zhengyu, his brows were slightly furrowed as he watched on with a complicated gaze.
“Oh? Then let’s see how you go about killing.” Ji Fengyan said with a smile, not the least bit afraid.
Not one person noticed as the crimson flowers near her feet silently flowed into the hard marbled surface and disappeared without a trace.
“Then don’t blame me for not having warned you!” Zhan Fei snorted, instantly pulling his spear back. He was preparing to kill this ignorant girl with one strike!
Almost at the same time, the hand at Ji Fengyan’s side drew a circle in the air…
Just as both of them were about to burst forth, a dark shadow abruptly flashed between them!
“Cease your impudence!” A biting command rang out with the shadow’s appearance, echoing throughout entire main hall.
It was a rather familiar voice to Zhan Fei, and the instant that he heard it, his spear that was about to be thrust out immediately froze in midair.
As for Ji Femgyan, she simply looked at the black-clothed man that had appeared from out of nowhere with astonishment.
He seemed to be a young man in his late twenties, his face blank, showing no emotions. A jet-black long bow rested on his back, matching well with his equally dark light armour.
“Xuan Wei?” Zhan Fei stared at the black-clothed man that had suddenly appeared in shock. He had a bad feeling about was going to happen next.
The black-clothed man who was called Xuan Wei glanced at Zhan Fei, “You dare to be so impudent in front of the Grandmaster?”
The hand that Zhan Fei used to hold his spear trembled.
As for Su Lingsheng and Lei Min, their hearts leapt up to their throats.
Almost as soon as the black-clothed youth finished speaking, all three of them quickly swirled their heads towards the entrance. It was then that they saw the pure-white figure standing at the main hall’s entrance!
None of them hesitated, immediately kneeling down onto one knee with a thud as cold sweat started to pour from their backs.
“We pay our respects to the Grandmaster!”
Their quavering voices echoed throughout the main hall.
Ji Fengyan took a glance. When her puzzled gaze landed on that pure-white figure, her pupils instantly dilated.
He was a man so beautiful that his handsomeness was almost suffocating. Dressed in a white-coloured long robe, its sides were engraved with golden threads that made it seem quite dignified without being too luxurious. Against the lightness of those clothes, his dark sable-coloured hair appeared even more eye-catching. All he was doing was standing there at the entrance and yet he seemed as if he suppressed everything else in the world. He was like the bright moon in the darkest of nights, his cold and elegant radiance causing others to be unable to turn their gazes away.
Grandmaster Xing Lou.
The true spiritual leader of the empire. Even the emperor would have to give way in front of this man.
