Gu Ruoyun laughed icily as she thought: hHow could I not know the reason behind Xia Ming's words? He wants me to think that it was the Holy Doctor Bai Zhongtian who had killed Xia Ruoyun. He then plans to use him to kill me!
Unfortunately, Xia Ming would never have guessed that I'm really Xia Ruoyun! So why should I believe his words?
"Miss Gu, you don't know how cruel that Holy Doctor is! A powerful cultivator had taken a fancy to my precious daughter and the Holy Doctor was eager to use this to his advantage. He found my daughter and tried to persuade her to become this cultivator's concubine. My daughter was a proud woman so how could she agree to become someone's concubine? She had declared that she would only be his primary wife and would never be a concubine! If the cultivator was willing to marry her, she would agree to it. After all, that cultivator was very influential and his powers were rather formidable. Any woman would dream of becoming the wife of a cultivator like him."
"However, that cultivator already has a strong and solid primary wife and he was only willing to take in a concubine. Hence, my daughter refused him and offended the Holy Doctor! The Holy Doctor is the type of person who would seek revenge for the smallest grievances. In retaliation, he had destroyed the entire Mo family and killed my daughter's mother and younger brother. Finally, he forced my daughter off a cliff, where she died tragically."
Gu Ruoyun clenched her fists as a white-hot rage burned from within her being.
Xia Ming is actually using such excuses to frame my master?
And... He's even saying that I had clung onto power and wanted to become the primary wife of some cultivator? Because I wasn't willing to be a concubine, I had offended the Holy Doctor Bai Zhongtian?
In the end, he even said that any woman would have dreams like this?
Gu Ruoyun really wanted to laugh so of course, she did.
Xia Ming assumed that she was mad with rage so he thought nothing of it. If this woman was really that idiot Xia Ruoyun's friend, she would be enraged when she hears this story. By then, I wouldn't need to do anything. She would end up being killed by the Holy Doctor Bai Zhongtian's hand in her quest to avenge Xia Ruoyun. This would also prove the Holy Doctor's crimes instantly.
Mo Shangfei frowned. Initially, he had wanted to mention the relationship between the Holy Doctor and his cousin to Xia Ming but he could not seem to bring himself to do so. He did not know why he felt this way.
"Master Xia, there's something here that I don't understand," Gu Ruoyun narrowed her eyes slightly and smiled, "Since the Holy Doctor Bai Zhongtian is the kind of person who seeks revenge for the smallest grievances, why had he spared the Xia family? Xia Ruoyun's surname was Xia after all so naturally, the Xia family would hold a deeper bond for her. However, why had Bai Zhongtian let the Xia family off the hook and destroyed her maternal grandfather's family instead? This simply doesn't seem logical."
Xia Ming's expression changed twice. Previously, he had dug out an excuse to frame Bai Zhongtian so he had not thought through it thoroughly.
Yet this woman had seen through my mistake in one glance?
Could it be that she knows the truth behind Xia Ruoyun's death?
That year, I had hunted Xia Ruoyun and kept a close eye on her. She would never have had the chance to tell anyone about this.
"Miss Gu," Xia Ming steadied the turmoil in his heart and smiled, "The Holy Doctor Bai Zhongtian has always been a strange man. How should I know why he had spared the Xia family? After all, I'm not him and I don't understand how he thinks either. Perhaps if you meet the Holy Doctor Bai Zhongtian in the future, you would understand."
Mo Shangfei, who had been paying attention to this conversation from the beginning, unconsciously stared at Xia Ming and fell silent.
Previously, I had completely overlooked this!
I should say that everyone had overlooked this fact!
This fact which states that Xia Ruoyun had provoked a powerful enemy and caused the destruction of the Mo family? If that was the case, why had that cultivator not destroyed the Xia family and instead, bypassed them and destroyed the maternal side of the family, the Mo family?
If Gu Ruoyun had not brought up this point, perhaps Mo Shangfei would never have thought of it no matter how hard he tried...
