In the last chapter → As she was thinking of the way to deal with it, she suddenly sensed something ice-cold on her neck . Before Murong Yunshu could recover from her absent-mindedness, she heard Li Dao, who had suddenly stood beside her, shouted, "Chu Changge, if you don't surrender, I'll kill Murong Yunshu!"
Chu Changge abruptly stopped from fighting and warned with his deep low voice, "Li Dao, if you want me to eliminate you together with your Kunlun Sect, try to go as far as you can . "
Li Dao was so frightened that his hand shook . Thus, the too sharp blade accidentally cut Murong Yunshu's skin and spilled a bit of blood .
Murong Yunshu frowned from pain . From childhood till her adulthood, not to mention skin injury, she had never even had any bumps and bruises . For this person to actually cut her neck with a knife, was truly abominable .
Lu'er also turned pale with fright as she screamed, "Blood, Miss, you're bleeding!"
Chu Changge had never seen her injured before . When he heard Lu'er's scream, his murderous aura soared . The sword in his hand flew out in an instant, hitting Li Dao by piercing through his throat .
Li Dao's face showed that he was in shock . He could only utter an incomplete word 'you' before he fell down dead .
Chu Changge walked slowly towards Murong Yunshu . With each of his step, the rest of the Jianghu heroes would take a step back . "Are you all right?" he asked in a low voice .
It was the first time for Murong Yunshu to hear him spoke in such a serious tone to her . Her mind turned blank for a moment, before she shook her head in a flurry . "I'm fine . "
"It's good that you're okay . " Chu Changge looked at her again for a few seconds as if he wanted to make sure that she was really fine . Then he turned to Great Master Xuankong and said, "Is holding an unarmed and innocently weak woman under duress your noble and decent style?"

Great Master Xuankong's face showed the feeling of embarrassment . "Patron Li's behaviour was indeed beneath the demeanour of a gentleman . "
Chu Changge sneered, as he thought that they were indeed a group of hypocrites .
Suddenly, Lin Shui'er jumped out from the group of heroes and said, "Murong Yunshu is not innocent! She has secretly communicated with mountain bandits to rob our escorted silver carts by Zhenyuan Escort Agency . That was a heinous crime!"
Great Master Xuankong had a big shock . "Miss Murong, is it true what this madam just said?"
Murong Yunshu pressed her handkerchief to the wound on her neck as she said indifferently, "That's right, I did inform the mountain bandits to rob the escorted silver carts . "
The whole audience was shocked with this remark . Only Fang Hongfei looked strange and pulled Lin Shuier's sleeve to prevent her from continuing making trouble . "Shui'er, things are already over, so don't bring up the old story again just to embarrass Yunshu . "
Lin Shuier shook off his hand and snorted coldly, "Yunshu, Yunshu, you called her name so affectionately . It's a pity that you regard her as a person, but she has never regarded you as one!"
"Shui'er!" Fang Hongfei, with his face still looked calm, reprimanded her .
Lin Shui'er ignored him and insisted on demanding an explanation from Murong Yunshu . While Murong Yunshu had a pale indifferent face, completely free from the embarrassment and bewilderment of 'the affair of the east window had been exposed¹secret is out' .
Great Master Xuankong shook his head slowly with a heavy face as he sighed, "Miss Murong, how deep is your hate towards Zhenyuan Escort Agency that you would do this kind of things that was offensive to Heaven and reason²Chinese idiom : to do extremely bad things?"
Murong Yunshu gave a slight smile and replied, "I don't have that much deep hatred towards them . It was just that, Zhenyuan Escort Agency escorted away my Murong mansion's things without my permission . I couldn't just stand by and watch . "
"According to your words, the goods escorted by Zhenyuan Escort Agency at that time belonged to Murong mansion?"
"Yes . I did tell all mountain bandits to rob the silver carts, but it was just giving out my own things to others as gifts . How can that be considered as a heinous crime?" asked Murong Yunshu .
"You lied!" Lin Shui'er pointed to Murong Yunshu's nose and shouted, "My father is obviously the one who owns all the Mingjian Mountain Villa properties! Husband, you will have to testify . "
"Shui'er, just forget about it . Let's just go home . Our Mingjian Mountain Villa and Murong mansion have been old friends for a long time, so don't embarrass Yunshu any more," said Fang Hongfei .
Murong Yunshu chuckled and her expression was cheerful as she said, "It doesn't matter, even if you feel embarrass over this matter . For me, being friends with Mingjian Mountain Villa is the biggest stain on my Murong family . Hence, I love to see it being torn apart . "
"You . . . " Fang Hongfei flew into rage and was about to lose his temper when he suddenly held himself back and said in a gentle voice, "Yunshu, both of us had been engaged with each other once . So why do you have to say it that way?"
Murong Yunshu indifferently answered, "Young Mastee Fang, please don't remind me of my mistake again and again . "
Fang Hongfei lost control of his feelings, as he gnashed his teeth . "Murong Yunshu, don't go too far . "
"I can even go a little bit further . Do you believe it?" asked Murong Yunshu .
"What do you mean?!” Fang Hongfei suddenly had a bad feeling .
Murong Yunshu did not answer him, but turned to Lin Shui'er and said, "Madam Fang, you might as well go back and ask Young Master Fang what the escort goods were . "
"Just ask?" Lin Shui'er asked, "My dear husband, what were inside those silver carts? Why did they use different routes?"
"This . . . " Fang Hongfei faltered, "This . . . I . . . I don't know . "
"You don't know? But, weren't those silver carts clearly your . . . "
"Stop it, Shui'er . "
Murong Yunshu sneered, "Since Young Master Fang is currently inconvenient to speak, I will tell you in his behalf . At that time, Zhenyuan Escort Agency was escorting 50 millions taels of silver . " This noob translation was translated by a noob translator きつね . Please read this chapter at xin-shou . blogspot . com .
Even before Murong Yunshu's voice had died away, everyone around already gasped . 50 millions taels of silver! How many Mingjian Mountain Villa could be bought with this much money?
After a few seconds of silence, everyone began to talk .
"Why did Mingjian Mountain Villa have so much silver?"
"Yes . 50 millions taels of silver is not a small sum . "
"For them to lose such a large sum of silver, why haven't we heard about it from Mingjian Mountain Villa? There was not even a rumour about it could be heard in the Jianghu . "
"Was it because they felt guilty as a thief³Chinese idiom : have sth on one's conscience? Was it possible that those silver really belonged to Murong mansion?"
"It makes sense . Murong mansion had once owned a wealth equivalent to that of an entire nation⁴Chinese idiom : extremely wealthy, and for them, 50 million taels of silver was just something trifling . "
"But why were Murong mansion taels of silver in Mingjian Villa?"
Everyone was speaking out their minds and letting others know their points of view, with none of them understood the complications of the matter .
When Murong Yunshu gently took off the handkerchief, it could be seen that the slight wound on her neck had already formed a scab . She handed the handkerchief to Lu'er, who put it away . Then she bent her lips as she smilingly explained, "The 50 millions taels of silver were betrothal gifts from Murong mansion to Mingjian Mountain Villa . Unfortunately, Young Master Fang thinks highly of the betrothal gifts but not of me, Murong Yunshu, so when he withdrew from the marriage, he did not return the betrothal gifts . Although I am not short of money in Murong mansion, I couldn't just submit myself to humiliation and let a vile person off lightly . "
