Chapter 171 – Schemes within a scheme (3)
Under the light from the flames, his formerly mighty face was suddenly bright then gloomy. It was as black as the bottom of a pot. His mood was unclear and indistinguishable.
However, the people closest to him could clearly feel the approaching storm clouds reeking of blood.
It was quite obvious, the Great General Su Zian’s fury was already at the peak.
Right now, Su Zian was itching to choke this living daughter Su Wan to death! He would rather have never had such a disgraceful daughter!
If this were to spread out, afterwards, where could they place Su Manor’s face?
However, in the presence of so many people…Su Zian only clenched his fists tightly and his complexion was ashen.
Su Zian ultimately said nothing, only his face was dark. The temple on his forehead bulged and throbbed incessantly. Both of his eyes were hazed over with bloodlust. He swept a quick glance at the surrounding people.
People that were swept by his machine-gun like gaze, each and every one of them kept quiet out of fear. They reverently lowered their eyes, even the sound of their breathing was slowed down.
“Today’s matter, if anyone dares to mention it, they will be killed without a chance of being pardoned!”
A heavy murderous intent flashed through Su Zian’s eyes.
Su Manor doesn’t only have Su Wan as the only unwed daughter. If today’s matter were to spread outside, how could the other daughters henceforth get married? Not to mention the daughter preparing to wed the crown prince to become the crown prince’s imperial concubine, Su Xi?
“Deal with this!” Su Zian scornfully and disdainfully glared at the two weak figures on the floor in front of him.
After he finished speaking, Su Zian tossed his sleeves and left. His footsteps were firm and decisive.
Captain Li, who had stood behind the general since the beginning, looked at Su Wan crying uncontrollably on the floor with a complex expression.
The third Su family Miss was graceful, noble and incomparably beautiful. He would admire her daily numerous times.
Now that he saw this disgusting side of hers, he finally realized. It turned out she was this kind of fickle and loose woman.
He subconsciously took off the cloak from his own body and gently placed it on top of Su Wan’s body.
Su Wan appeared to be grabbing at the last straw that could save her life. Her cries were mournful and intense: “I am innocent! I have been wrongly accused! It’s Su Luo. It’s Su Luo that slut who framed me! It is her who harmed me!’
With the light from the flames, her appearance was sinister and twisted. Her pair of eyes were scarlet red, filled with maliciousness and were very spiteful. She had a crazy expression like a mentally deranged fool. Her condition was terrifying like a lunatic.
In a short while, Captain Li’s original feelings of pity dropped by more than half. He calmly said. “Third Miss rest assured, the general will use his own wise judgement.”
Captain Li held Su Wan who was tightly wrapped with his cloak, with a complex expression on his face, as he left with her.
“Deal with this!” Captain Li left only these three words.
People could only see the swords in the soldier’s hands swing down. Slice after slice appeared on the black-clothed person’s body. Fresh blood sprayed out wildly, continuously spraying out…
Soon, his corpse was kicked into the raging fire and afterwards, was cremated into black smoke.
As if he had never existed before.
Captain Li’s troops followed behind him and also filed out.
Within a moment, everyone walked out, leaving behind a completely empty courtyard.
The same evening.
The night was pitch-black as ink.
Su Zian sat inside his study, the lamp flickered brightly, then darkened. It shined upon his hazy and fierce appearance, revealing a ruthless expression. His overcast mood was clearly indeterminable.
Madam Su came in, holding a bowl of lotus seed soup. Seeing Su Zian’s unstable mood and absent-minded appearance , she sighed.
The passing years seemed to have left no traces on her face.
“General, you haven’t eaten anything tonight. You should eat something at least.” Madam Su’s voice was gentle and sweet-sounding, very pleasant to listen to.
“Not eating, take it away.” Su Zian frowned and stubbornly refused.
