While facing General Luo, Gu Ruoyun’s expression slowly relaxed. Just as she was about to speak, her sharp eyes caught an elegant figure striding into the area.
That person was just as poised and dainty as before and exquisite makeup covered up her originally pale face. Upon seeing Gu Ruoyun, she paused for a moment. A vicious glint flashed across her eyes.
This woman was still alive!
She had already brought out the Azure Dragon, but she was still alive! It wasn’t fair! It was preposterous that an evil woman like her wasn’t dead yet!
“This concubine greets Your Majesty.”
Imperial Concubine Ling walked to Leng Wujing’s side, brimming with good humour as she sincerely made her greetings. “This concubine heard that someone wants to assassinate Your Majesty, so I specially came over to see who would be so daring!”
After saying so, her fierce gaze swept towards Gu Ruoyun. Her naturally elegant face immediately turned frigid as maliciousness darted across her beautiful pupils.
“Imperial Concubine Ling?”
With a whoosh, an icy cold look was directed at Imperial Concubine Ling. Gu Ruoyun sneered: “You came just in time! You paid off the Dark Yin Palace to assassinate me, but they hurt the people by my side instead and even kidnapped a child to threaten me. As the mastermind, how should we settle this grudge between us?”
Imperial Concubine Ling’s expression abruptly changed. She glared ferociously at Gu Ruoyun before turning to face Leng Wujing, speaking in an aggrieved tone, “Your Majesty, this concubine has been unjustly accused! All these years, this concubine has been helping Your Majesty manage the imperial harem, how could I have had the time to plan such a scheme? It’s clear that Gu Ruoyun hasn’t had enough, even after killing my father and nephew! She’s trying to kill the entire Ling family! Such a vicious woman should be hacked into pieces and die without a whole corpse! Otherwise, she’ll probably think that no one in Azure Dragon Country is able to restrain her and she won’t accord the proper respect due to Your Majesty at all!”
These words targeted the sore spots in Leng Wujing’s heart.
He smiled coldly and said: “General Gu, General Luo, what are you waiting for? Capture this woman immediately!”
Old Man Gu’s sinister gaze swung towards Gu Ruoyun, a sneer hanging on his lips: “Gu Ruoyun, it’s not that I want to kill you, but you’ve gone too far. Don’t blame Grandfather for not taking mercy on account of our blood ties.”
After he finished speaking, he ordered the soldiers to surround Gu Ruoyun.
General Luo hesitated, but he didn’t follow the orders.
This made Leng Wujing burst out in rage: “General Luo, how daring of you! How dare you disobey Our orders! Have you grown tired of holding your post as general?!”
General Luo knelt to the ground on one knee, his military seal held tightly in one hand. With his head lowered, he spoke: “Your Majesty, Gu Ruoyun is your servant’s niece. Even without that relationship, your servant believes in what she said. It was Imperial Concubine Ling’s fault in this matter, but Your Majesty is protecting Imperial Concubine Ling. Truthfully, it’s hard for your servant to obey your orders. Gu Ruoyun is in the wrong for intruding into the imperial palace, but that was a mistake made later on. If Your Majesty wants to hold someone accountable, Your Majesty should first deal with Imperial Concubine Ling! The same laws apply to both princes and paupers, let alone a concubine of the imperial harem! If Your Majesty refuses to give a proper explanation, then your servant would rather hand over this military seal and retire to his hometown!”
His actions proved that he would stand on Gu Ruoyun’s side, no matter what happened.
“Very well!” Leng Wujing’s smile looked like a grimace in his extreme anger. “General Luo, since you’ve made your choice, We will grant your wish. Old General Gu, take his military seal. From now on, you’re the only general of Azure Dragon Country.”
