A young girl, who looked to be around the same age as Xia Qi, came rushing out from the crowd and glared angrily at Gu Ruoyun, "You've caused the death of my older brother, you must have done something to him! You've come to our home and killed him wide in the open. The Master will not let you get away with this!"
The young girl's name is Xia Yu and she is Xia Ying's twin sister. She had watched everything unfold from the back. To her, Gu Ruoyun was the only one who was in close proximity to her older brother and therefore she must have done something to his body.
I must report to the Master about this to kill this cruel woman!
Gu Ruoyun watched the scene unfold before her very eyes, unable to act in time. Of course she knew Xia Qi's motives in sending these men. He wanted her to make a move and force the Master's hand!
But she did not expect that Xia Qi would unleash the killer and feed Xia Ying poison from the very beginning!
Even if I did not react, as long as Xia Ying moved towards me, the result would be the same! What a great strategy, to get someone else to do one's dirty work! Unfortunately, he has messed with the wrong person...
"Out of the way!" Gu Ruoyun recovered her sense and ordered with a frown.
"What are you planning to do?"
Xia Yu, realizing that Gu Ruoyun was trying to get close to Xia Ying, fiercely shot her a glare and screamed furiously, "You've already brought harm upon my brother and now he's going to die. You're still not going to leave him in peace?"
Xia Yu was initially unhappy with Xia Ying for listening to the Second Master's orders to cause trouble but if they did not do it, the Second Master would never let them off easily! They were only distant relatives in the Xia Family and had no right to disobey the Second Master's orders.
Who would have thought that this would have brought harm to her brother.
Thinking of how lonely and helpless she would become after her brother's death, tears began to stream down Xia Yu's face. Her face filled with intense hatred towards Gu Ruoyun.
Even if my brother was in the wrong, he does not deserve to be punished with death, how could she kill at will? This woman is utterly merciless, thought Xia Yu.
"If you don't want him to die, then get out of the way!"
Gu Ruoyun wrinkled her eyebrows and spoke calmly.
Actually, she did not want to save Xia Ying. But if she did not cure him from the poison, the members of the Xia Family would assume that she was the one responsible for his death! Hence, she only wanted to use the simplest method to solve the problem.
"Don't even think about it, I won't let you near my brother!"
Xia Yu glared furiously at Gu Ruoyun as she thought, this woman certainly would not have any good intentions, I cannot allow her to inflict further harm upon my brother!
The crease in the space between Gu Ruoyun's eyebrows grew deeper as she watched Xia Ying slowly lose his breath. Just was she was about to step forward, a slow, elderly voice was heard, piercing into the hearts of the crowd.
"What happened here? Can anyone explain this to me?"
Under the remaining light from the sunset, an elder dressed in green made his way towards the crowd. Behind him were the elders of the Xia Family. But when he saw Xia Ying lying on the ground, the old man's stern expression became flabbergasted, and stared suspiciously at Gu Ruoyun.
"Little girl, can you tell me what's happened here?"
Before Gu Ruoyun could respond, Xia Yu, who was initially crouched on the ground, stood up immediately and rushed towards the old man and threw herself on the ground, kneeling before him. Tears streamed down her face like an endless rain as she sobbed, "Master, you must avenge my brother. This woman has secretly stabbed him in the back! The attitude she displays clearly shows that she has no consideration of the Xia Family in her eyes! Please give us justice in the name of the Xia Family!"
Her petite body trembled, and her pretty, tender face was pale white. Her eyes looked pleadingly at Master Xia. She looked absolutely pitiful.
