Chapter 1453: Mutually-in-love gu
Translator: Henyee Translations Editor: Henyee Translations
Ye Wanwan watched how a casual slap from Iceberg Man prohibited Patriarch Yuan from speaking immediately and caused his face to swell red.
“This is… gu?” Ye Wanwan asked Iceberg Man.
Iceberg Man nodded lightly.
Ye Wanwan was at a loss of words. In all the years she had lived, this was her first time seeing someone using something as mystical as gu…
“Boss, Patriarch Yuan is bound. What’s our next step…”
Spray of Flowers asked with an ingratiating smile next to Ye Wanwan.
Ye Wanwan thought for a moment, but before she could speak, rhythmic marching could be heard outside the door.
The members of the Yuan family had surrounded the study layer by layer.
“To the people inside, listen up! We’ve already informed Asura and Lord Asura. If you don’t want to die, immediately bring out our patriarch safely!” an elderly man shouted angrily outside the study.
Everyone from the Yuan family was alerted due to the large commotion inside the study, but their patriarch was restrained right now, so they didn’t dare to rashly chargeinto the study.
Spray of Flowers was startled briefly before saying with a smile, “Lord Asura is a difficult opponent, and they have the advantage in numbers. We should flee now, or else we’ll be in deep trouble when Asura’s people get here.”
“That’s true. Most importantly, Captain doesn’t have any animosities with Asura, so it wouldn’t be good if we have any direct conflicts… How about we retreat…” Taoist Devotee also bobbed his head in agreement.
Their gaze landed on Ye Wanwan.
Ye Wanwan was this group’s moneybag, so they had to listen to her.
Ye Wanwan was about to say something when she heard the sound of rope ripping from the bed.
At the same time, Patriarch Yuan, who had struggled up from his binding, leaped up from the bed and kicked open the coffin near Iceberg Man before they realized what was happening.
Patriarch Yuan had seen Iceberg Man retrieve his gu insects from the coffin, so he knew this mercenary, who was a gu expert, stored his gu insects inside his coffin!
Only then did Spray of Flowers and Taoist Devotee regain their wits. They were scared witless when they saw Patriarch Yuan reaching into the coffin. Dead Man’s gu was all stored inside that coffin!
Patriarch Yuan released a tragic laugh and scooped up a handful of unknown gu with both hands before he was about to throw it at Ye Wanwan and her group.
Spray of Flowers and his teammates became frightened and retreated backward reflexively.
What would happen to them if they were hit?!
However, Patriarch Yuan was smart. His actions were merely a feint, and he waited until they stopped moving before throwing the gu toward Ye Wanwan.
Ye Wanwan was caught off guard and felt her body turn numb, as though thousands of ants were crawling over her.
Patriarch Yuan’s smile froze suddenly. He didn’t expect a number of gu insects to burrow into his body while he picked them up. He felt like they were nibbling everything inside his body.
A few breaths later, Patriarch Yuan collapsed onto the floor like a slab of mud and oxygen flowed out of him as he turned into a corpse.
Meanwhile, Ye Wanwan had a deep frown on her face. Her body felt like an inferno was raging through it, and every inch of skin was unbearably itchy and bright red.
At the same time, upon seeing Ye Wanwan surrounded by the Yuan family, Big Dipper and Seven Star led the elites from the Fearless Alliance inside urgently and killed their way through to create an opening.
