Chapter 139 – Grandmaster (3)
“So it was the Eldest Princess who directed all of you to act in this manner?” Xing Lou asked, his voice so cold that it seemed as if it could freeze the sun outside.
Zhan Fei felt as if his entire body had frozen over. The Life Annihilation Armour on his body began to creak as he trembled.
“Your subordinate… Your subordinate…”
“Grandmaster, mercy! Your subordinate knows his mistakes!” Zhan Fei begged, violently kowtowing.
Even if he was the Eldest Princess’ personal bodyguard, even if he was also a powerful life exterminator, with just one word from Xing Lou, his life would be gone!
Xing Lou ignored Zhan Fei’s desperate pleas for mercy, his gaze abruptly turning to land on Ji Fengyan who was watching the show off to the side.
“How do you want to deal with them?” He asked calmly.
“Huh?” Ji Fengyan eye’s widened. She was slightly dazed as she gazed back at Xing Lou.
Why… was he asking her?
She still wanted to continue watching the show!
Xing Lou pointed at the three people kneeling before him.
Ji Fengyan finally returned to reality.
So he wanted to let her handle those three?
Not only did Xing Lou’s words puzzle Ji Fengyan, it also scared Zhan Fei and Su Lingsheng’s group half to death!
What the hell was happening?!
The great Grandmaster…. How could he just hand them over to Ji Fengyan?
Many questions and doubts swirled around in their minds , but they couldn’t muster up the least bit of courage to disobey Xing Lou’s words.
As Ji Fengyan gazed at the blank-faced Xing Lou, her brain returned to normal.
This grandmaster had a close connection to the Imperial Family. Although he didn’t seem that bad, but… saying that he would give Zhan Fei and the others over to her for her to take care of… Something just felt off.
Could it be…
Was he planned to reprimand them in public, but secretly protect them in private?
After all, no matter what, Zhan Fei was still the Eldest Princess’ subordinate. This grandmaster did seem very immortal, so it could be possible that it was because he had seen through her trump card…
As she thought things through, Ji Fengyan finally understood.
She had never seen Xing Lou before and the original host before her never even had the opportunity to see this Grandmaster.
He was neither her friend nor her relative, so how could he just suddenly come out to help her?
Ji Fengyan’s lips curled up in a smile, “I don’t dare to handle them. After all, this Zhan Fei is the Eldest Princess’ personal bodyguard. If I just cut him down in front of everybody, then wouldn’t I be rubbing it in the Eldest Princess’ face?”
Although the depths of Xing Lou’s eyes flashed with a trace of confusion, he wasn’t in a hurry to speak.
As for Zhan Fei, he secretly let out sigh of relief.
Thank the gods Ji Fengyan wasn’t a complete fool.
However, Ji Fengyan’s following words immediately caused Zhan Fei’s breath of relief to be choked in his throat!
“Still, since my lord Grandmaster is willing to uphold justice, then I will naturally oblige. I can let everything else off, but the transgression of Zhan Fei breaking into my residence and assaulting my guards without rhyme or reason must be settled.” Ji Fengyan stated with a fake smile. She wasn’t in a hurry to settle their other debts, but she would take some interest first!
Even if the Grandmaster was right in front of them, she still wouldn’t let Zhan Fei off so easily!
Zhan Fei stared at Ji Fengyan in disbelief. If it wasn’t for the fact that Xing Lou was right there, then he would’ve already slapped this little girl to death!
The confusion in Xing Lou’s eyes disappeared as a spark of understanding flashed through them.
Turning his head, he glanced towards Xuan Wei who was kneeling off to the side and slightly nodded.
Before Ji Fengyan could understand what was going on, Xuan Wei abruptly stood up and instantly notched four arrows on his bow. Before anybody else could react…
The four arrows cried out as they shot out from the bow! In a flash they nailed all four of Zhan Fei’s limbs to the floor!
