Before the crowd could even realize what was going on, Honorable Sir Tianqi waved his sleeves and a sharp light shot towards Shi Yun, piercing her through the throat.
Shi Yun let out a muffled groan as her head tilted at a crooked angle. Then, she breathed no more.
"Kun Nan, it was I who killed Shi Yun. If you wish to cause havoc, you may ask your Master to speak to me. Don't cause trouble for the Gu girl."
The Honorable Sir Tianqi looked at Kun Nan and spoke in a somber manner.
Kun Nan did not respond. Instead, he stared blankly at Shi Yun's lifeless body as tears rolled down his cheeks. Then, he threw himself forward and kneeled onto the ground, lamenting bitterly, "Shi'er, I'm so sorry. Big Brother Nan was not able to protect you."
But rest assured, he resolved, I shall remember this injustice!
"Honorable Sir Tianqi, may I ask if it's time for me to leave?"
Kun Nan held Shi Yun's lifeless body and asked as he rose to his feet.
The Honorable Sir Tianqi was just about to speak but Gu Ruoyun raised her calm but cold voice, "I've told you, I'm not letting you leave until I've paralyzed half of your body."
"Gu Ruoyun, what more do you want? You've already taken Shi Yun's life and fed me with poison. And yet you're still not satisfied with your gains?" Kun Nan's eyes were filled with hatred as he retorted through gritted teeth.
Gu Ruoyun laughed coldly, "So, let me ask you this. That person who arrived in Azure Dragon Country to deal with me years ago, did you send him?"
"What did you say?"
Kun Nan was stunned as an obscure glint flashed across his eyes, "I don't know what you're talking about!"
"You're not going to admit to it?"
Gu Ruoyun calmly raised a corner of her lips and fixed her gaze on Kun Nan.
Just then, Kun Nan felt a wave of agony in the vital organs of his body once again. He dropped Shi Yun's body and held onto his stomach, crumpling to the ground. His face had turned completely white as a cold sweat broke out on his forehead.
"Stop it, I confess, I sent him!"
It was as if thunder had struck past his ears. The Honorable Sir Tianqi rose to his feet again just as he was about to sit down.
He had always known that Kun Nan had intentions of usurping Gu Shengxiao's position but he did not think that he would have been so shameless as to send an agent to Azure Dragon Country in order to capture Gu Ruoyun!
"Alright." Gu Ruoyun swept her gaze towards Kun Nan, "Seeing as you were the mastermind behind my kidnapping attempt, then I have reason to collect my debt from you. Xiao Ye, cripple him for me!"
Qianbei Ye did not reply. His blood-red robes shot into the skies then charged towards Kun Nan at the speed of light.
Before Kun Nan could make sense of the situation, a hand landed forcefully on his chest.
Instantly, it was as if Kun Nan's body had exploded like he had been filled with explosive substances. He spat out a mouthful of blood as his body emitted fumes of smoke.
Then, Qianbei Ye calmly placed his hand back to the side of his body and slowly walked back to Gu Ruoyun's side.
His crimson robes and silver hair were absolutely mind-blowing!
One attack! The crowd thought. The mid-level Martial Emperor Kun Nan was no match for his one attack!
"Xiao Ye, let's go."
Gu Ruoyun took one last look at Kun Nan then turned around and began to leave. But just then, a powerful aura shot across the skies, smashing into the plaza.
Before the crowd could realize what was going on, a large hole was smashed into the plaza. In that hole, an old man clothed in black pushed himself off the ground, sweeping a dark gaze across every face in the crowd.
When his gaze fell upon Kun Nan, whose entire body was drenched in blood, a ruthless energy burst from within his very being. His elderly face was incomparably gloomy and his hoarse voice was absolutely unpleasant to the ear.
"Who did this?"
His tone was dripping with murderous intent, causing the Honorable Sir Tianqi's face to change suddenly.
"What's this old fart doing here? That's it, she's done for. It would be extremely difficult for the Gu girl to solve this now!"
