No! She thought. I can't live with this! Even if I die, I will not admit defeat!
Besides, the Dongfang family had climbed back into the innings with great difficulty. If I surrender, wouldn't it strip them into retreat?
If I do this, how can I face Lady Gu who had such faith in me?
"I will not admit defeat, Gu Ling, I will defeat you today!"
Linlang declared stubbornly as she pushed back forcefully, causing Gu Ling to stumble a few steps back.
"You've overestimated your abilities!"
Gu Ling laughed coldly, raising the corners of his lips into a disdainful smile. Then, his body appeared behind Linlang in a flash. Before Linlang could grasp what was going on, he picked her up into the air and threw her body down with ferocity.
A large hole appeared in the sturdy wooden planks of the arena where Linlang had violently landed. Her mouth was filled with blood and her face was as pale as a sheet.
"Linlang, I thought you enjoyed running away? I'll make it so that the lower half of your body can no longer move. Let's see how you're going to run away now!" Gu Ling slowly walked towards Linlang then leaned over to look at the girl whose face was now completely drained of color. He sneered, "If only you had obediently become a little slave girl who warms my bed, wouldn't that had been much better than this? This time, I'm definitely taking you back to the Gu family. If you still refuse, I can use your mother in your place. Don't judge your mother based on the fact that she's already a middle-aged woman, she's still rather attractive. My subordinates have been drooling over her for a very long time now. I'm sure they'd love to have a taste of her."
Linlang gritted her teeth and her eyes were bursting with flames of rage. When paired with her bloodied face, it was an extremely terrifying sight.
Gu Ling burst into laughter and spoke disdainfully, "Watch and see if I dare, Linlang. People like you don't have the right to yell and scream at lords like myself. Just because you've managed to curry favor with the Dongfang family do you think you can sit at the same table as me? Servants are servants. You will always be a servant!"
Suddenly, a powerful aura erupted from the ruins. Upon feeling this power, Gu Ling went into shock.
Gu Ling's eyes darkened. Linlang actually had a breakthrough at a time like this!
But so what if she had a breakthrough? He sneered to himself, I'm a high-level Martial King. Why should I fear a newly-broken through mid-level Martial King?
"Gu Ling, I'm going to murder you!"
A loud, furious roar was heard. The next thing everyone could see was Linlang's body charging like a bolt of lightning towards Gu Ling.
Linlang's eyes were bloodshot. She drew her sword and pointed it at Gu Ling.
This sword was not the spiritual weapon that Gu Ruoyun had given her. After all, she was not going to use that treasured spiritual weapon unless she had absolutely no other choice.
"You're looking for your own death!"
Gu Ling shouted. The aura from his body grew into a riot, as if a hurricane was being raised from his surroundings.
The force from Linlang's sword clashed with the hurricane around him. A wave filled with turmoil erupted from the explosion, causing Linlang to stumble a few steps back.
Regardless, the distance between a high-level Martial King and a mid-level Martial King was not a small one.
However, Linlang did not retreat. Instead, she charged forward once again towards Gu Ling, attacking at full force!
Her attacks were brutal. Each blow was greater than the last and she charged her opponent as if her own life did not matter.
"Linlang, have you f*cking gone insane?
Gu Ling's expression finally drained of color. He never expected Linlang to attack so wildly. What good will this do for her?
"Gu Ling, I want to kill you!!!"
As long as I kill him, she thought, I don't care if I'm hurting myself.
Sensing the ferocity that stirred vigorously in Linlang's murderous intent, Gu Ling's face turned an extremely ugly shade. This woman is clearly disregarding her own life! He thought. If she actually manages to kill me, I'm afraid she will end up crippling herself in the process!
