Chapter 275: Frightened to Death
Murong Xue blinked and sighed, “Can we just enjoy our dinner?”
“Just ignore them,” Ouyang Shaochen said blandly as he put a piece of fish into her bowl. Suddenly, he snapped his fingers and his powerful internal strength directed at the arrow which was immediately smashed and then floated to the ground in pieces.
Unexpectedly, more arrows shot from all sides, attacking them mercilessly, maliciously and murderously.
With long swords in their hands, Xun Feng and Wuhen leaped out and rushed towards the arrows, all of which were hit down in no time. The two of them had a furious, bloody fight with the people in black who had shot arrows.
When the noise of the fighting and wailing made their ways to Murong Xue’s ears, she turned to have a look and sighed, “Eww, so bloody and violent!”
Those assassins were so vulnerable that Xun Feng and Wuhen knocked them down easily.
“You don’t like blood and violence, huh?” Ouyang Shaochen raised his eyebrows and looked at her. After he returned to Qingyan, he found that Murong Xue often encountered a variety of violent and bloody scenes. He naturally didn’t think this bloody and violent scene was unbearable to her.
“We are civilized human beings and we must subdue others by virtue,” Murong Xue said with a smile, her dark eyes shining brightly.
Ouyang Shaochen smiled, “These people intend to kill you. And you still want to reason with them?”
“I haven’t finished yet. For the civilized, we must subdue them by virtue while for the cruel, by violence, of course,” Murong Xue said with a smile. At the same time, people in black had fallen down and there were body parts strewn all over the place. The smell of blood spread rapidly in the air.
Suddenly, a man covered with blood fell heavily in front of Ouyang Shaochen and Murong Xue, kicking up the dust.
Xun Feng strode forward and said respectfully, “Your Highness, this is the leader of the assassins.”
“Um.” Ouyang Shaochen looked up at Murong Xue, expecting her response. Murong Xue put down the dishes and said to the leader, “Who sent you here?”
Saying nothing, the man held his chin up and glanced at Murong Xue.
Murong Xue raised her eyebrows and said leisurely, “Isn’t it obvious? It’s Prime Minister’s daughter Cang Susu. Am I right?”
Martial arts and weapons used by those assassins were unique to the guards of Nanjiang. Murong Xue just came to the capital of Nanjiang not long ago and didn’t have much contact with people here. It was impossible for her to breed enmity with people in the capital of Nanjiang. The only one she had had a conflict with was Cang Susu because of Beibei. So Murong Xue was sure that those people were sent by Cang Susu.
Shock flashed through the eyes of the man but disappeared in an instant. His looked down slightly.
Murong Xue curled up the corners of her mouth and sneered, “I was right!”
It was rather malicious of Cang Susu to have tried to kill Murong Xue who just had a bickering with her. Cang Susu resembled her brother Cang Qiong so much in terms of characteristics, being both petty and vengeful.
When Murong Xue was immersed in thoughts with her eyes closed, the man blindsided her. He pulled out the dagger from his boot and stabbed at her, only aiming to complete his lady’s order by killing Murong Xue.
However, he just bit off more than he could chew with a sneak attack to Murong Xue.
Murong Xue put on a cold smile. She suddenly extended her arm to grab the man’s wrist and pushed him hard. The sharp dagger slashed across his neck and red blood ran down from the gash.
With his eyes widened, the man fell to the ground and died.
Ouyang Shaochen looked at Murong Xue blandly and said, “What are your plans?” He knew Murong Xue well. She was not a little girl who would be bullied easily.
“Since Cang Susu gave me such a great gift, I naturally have to pay her back,” Murong Xue said with an odd smile.
In this evening, Cang Susu in a chiffon nightdress reclined on the bed combing her hair. The cold breeze brought out her allure.
She glanced at the transparent hourglass on the table, her eyes glittering with malice. She thought that guards must have killed Murong Xue by then.
Murong Xue robbed the dog she liked and even instructed it to scratch her. Murong Xue deserved to die a thousand times over.
Suddenly, there was a sharp rap on the door.
Cang Susu frowned. “What is it?”
“I’ll see what’s going on.” The little maid walked quickly towards the door, wondering who could be bold enough to smash the lady’s door in the middle of the night.
There was another loud rap on the door before the little maid furiously opened the door. No sooner had she reprimanded than an unknown object flew over her head and fell onto Cang Susu’s body.
Cang Susu was caught off guard and knocked down with the back of her head onto the bed. She felt her anger rise and looked up, only to find a dark-clothed man who was covered with blood on top of her. With blood trickling down from the gash on his neck, Cang Susu’s nightdress became red. The faint smell of freshly shed blood spread in the air in no time.
Noticing that, Cang Susu screamed in horror.
She waved her arms to get rid of the dead body. Unfortunately, hardly had she pushed away the dead body when another one flew to her.
Cang Susu screamed again and waved her arms in panic to push away the bodies. Unexpectedly, more and more dead bodies fell onto her. “Help me, help me,” she screamed.
Upon hearing that, the guards rushed in. They saw more than 20 bodies piled on Cang Susu. Unable to move, she was in a position that was so undignified, so embarrassing!
