As soon as Murong Yun Shu and her party of three arrived at the front door, working girls with quick response approached them attentively, and welcomed them inside.
"Please come inside, gentlemen," they voices sweet like honey.
Murong Yun Shu, seemingly in a relaxed state, entered in a leisurely pace. Feng Ling, a smile on her face, bounced into the brothel after Murong Yun Shu. Nie Qing, with a serious look, flung off the hand resting on his shoulder and reluctantly stepped inside.
As soon as the bawd caught sight of Murong Yun Shu, his smile was immediately replaced with shock, "How did you...." come in from the outside?
Murong Yun Shu, looking as relaxed as usual, never slowed down her pace, "You know Kung Fu too, so you should have heard of the 'Gods appear and devils vanish'1."
The bawd was even more surprised now. She followed Murong Yun Shu incredulously, her mind fill with questions. According to her source, Murong Yun Shu was not familiar with kung fu at all...
Murong Yun Shu arrived at the room she was staying at and found it ransacked. Obviously the bawd and the man in black were not working together.
"So who do you work for?" asked Murong Yun Shu as she settled down in the master seat. Nie Qing and Feng Ling flank her sides like her bouncers, as though they are carrying out interrogation in court.
"King Liang Jr.," the bawd wasn't afraid to tell the truth. She was just very confused, Murong Yun Shu knew there were traps set for her. Any other person would have ran away as far as they could, but she came back to interrogate her? Maybe... just maybe, Murong Yun Shu wasn't as vulnerable as she made out to be.
"What does he want from me?"
"To take you to the Shu Province."
Murong Yun Shu smiled to herself, "King Liang wants me dead, King Liang Jr. wants me live. It seems like King Liang Jr. has much better foresight. King Liang's best bet is to become King Father after King Liang Jr. becomes crowned king."
Nie Qing became more displeased after hearing that. Imprudent and insolent were some of the terms that crossed his mind.
The bawd was delighted, "If I knew you'd be so cooperative, I could have saved the trouble of giving you the Soul Snatcher.2"
"You gave her the Soul Snatcher?" screamed Feng Ling, looking mortified.
Idiom. Mysterious appearing and disappearing out of thin air." A kind of poison.
