Chapter 1422: Pick up my fiancée
Translator: Henyee Translations Editor: Henyee Translations
“Who dares to act so insolently here?!”
The red-haired man, Jiang Yan, suddenly walked out of the manor.
“None of your business.”
Skeleton stepped forward immediately.
“You want to die?!” In a flash, Jiang Yan shot toward Skeleton.
An explosive sound resounded as Jiang Yan’s palm clashed with Skeleton’s palm, and they both staggered back a few steps simultaneously.
Skeleton and Jiang Yan met each other’s eyes, shock apparent.
“Skeleton, withdraw,” Ji Xiuran lightly called as he looked at Skeleton.
“Yes…” Skeleton answered and immediately retreated.
“Jiang Yan,” Lord Asura also called out indifferently from his spot next to Ye Wanwan.
Jiang Yan nodded and retreated to the side.
A faint and harmless smile stayed firm on Ji Xiuran’s lips. He first glanced at Ye Wanwan before turning to the man next to her. “You must be Lord Asura, the one whose name reverberates throughout the Independent State.”
“Ji Xiuran…” Lord Asura’s gaze also landed on Ji Xiuran.
It looked like it was about to rain. Dark clouds shrouded the sky above them and cold winds sent dust fluttering in the air. The temperature around them plummeted in an instant, causing Ye Wanwan to reflexively rub her arms and shiver.
“Heh…” Ji Xiuran chuckled lightly. “I didn’t expect Lord Asura to have heard of my humble name. What an honor.”
The man’s immortal-like looks were akin to perpetually frozen ice, and his pitch-black eyes didn’t have a hint of warmth. “May I ask what advice Emperor Ji wants to give by coming here today?”
Ji Xiuran looked at Ye Wanwan and smiled faintly as he said, “I wouldn’t dare to give any advice. I merely came by to… pick up my fiancée.”
Ye Wanwan: “…!!!”
Ye Wanwan didn’t know if it was her imagination but she felt like Lord Asura’s icy face seemed to crack for a second when he heard Emperor Ji’s words?
While Ye Wanwan wondered whether she saw things wrong, a thought sparked in her mind.
This is a good opportunity!
Since Emperor Ji suddenly came here, perhaps she could take advantage of this opportunity…
Si Yehan had a terrifying possessiveness and his jealousy could submerge the entire Independent State. She didn’t believe he could remain unperturbed if she cheated on him in front of him.
Ye Wanwan immediately pattered toward Ji Xiuran’s side and intimately looped her arm around his arm. “That’s right, that’s right. He’s my fiancé! He came to pick me up!”
When Ji Xiuran saw her taking the initiative to get close to him on this rare occasion, he sent a fleeting glance at his arm being held.
Meanwhile, Ye Wanwan kept observing Lord Asura’s reaction while speaking.
Opposite of them, his tall, lone figure stood in front of the manor’s giant decoratively carved iron door with downcast eyes. Since the sky was a bit dark, his expression couldn’t be clearly seen.
An unknown amount of time passed and Ye Wanwan’s heart had nearly raised to her throat when he slowly looked up. His brows were wickedly arched up while the curve of his lips evoked an inexplicable sense of danger…
He first glanced at Ye Wanwan before turning to Ji Xiuran and saying slowly, “Is that so? Then does Emperor Ji know that… your fiancée… casually gives her private number to strange men and even tries to…”
Ye Wanwan’s eyes shot open and felt like a stampede of horses trampled through her heart.
This guy actually sold me out!!!
