Just as the man finished speaking, the room's door was abruptly shut tight. Xia Chuxue's eyes became hazy. She clenched her fist tightly to stop her heart from trembling.
Gu Ruoyun, I, Xia Chuxue, hereby swear that I will ensure that you die in an unmarked grave!
That man who was helping you will not have a peaceful death either!
However, the crowd was in shock over the way Qianbei Ye had addressed himself.
After all, only one type of person was allowed to address themselves as 'this Supreme One' - cultivators at the rank of Martial Supreme! Was this man a Martial Supreme as well? However, judging from the way he had spoken, he does not seem to be interested in Xia Chuxue as she had claimed.
"He must have been shamed to anger after being rejected. I suppose that only a man by Gu Ruoyun's side would have such a lack of moral character."
Xia Chuxue crawled up from the ground and spoke in a soft, icy voice.
However, her voice was loud enough for the people next to her to overhear!
No wonder that man had acted against Xia Chuxue! He was angered by the humiliation of being rejected! So, does he think that he could do as he pleases just because he's a Martial Supreme? Yet he still wants to force an honest girl into prostitution? Just what kind of a person does he think the Eldest Lady Xia is? She has never been vain and would not fall for a man just because he's powerful.
Such a lofty and unsullied woman deserves to be treated with gentleness by all!
In the room, Qianbei Ye's face was ashen. His blood-red eyes were burning with a thick sense of murderous intent. Even though Xia Chuxue had spoken in a very low and soft voice, with his powerful hearing abilities, he had heard what she had said crystal-clear.
"Yun'er, if it wasn't for your plans in not letting the Xia family off so easily, I would have destroyed them all right now!"
Gu Ruoyun sipped her tea and spoke in a careless manner, "Let Xia Chuxue slander and discredit others however much she wishes for now. Once the truth is out, her face would change in a rather entertaining manner. Xiao Ye, did you record everything earlier on?"
Qianbei Ye smiled. He then opened his palm to reveal a glittering and translucent jade ornament in his hand.
"This jade ornament is a divine weapon. It has no use in battle but has only one function — to record every conversation! Xia Ming's words have already been stored in this jade ornament. I only need to pour in a bit of spiritual energy and I'll be able to replay his voice."
Perhaps Xia Ming never anticipated such an object to exist on this mainland.
After all, this Voice Recording Jade Ornament was a divine weapon and Qianbei Ye had obtained it by chance all for the sake of this very moment!
Of course, when he had first obtained the jade ornament, he never considered that it could be used this way. When he was reunited with Gu Ruoyun, he remembered the jade ornament's uses! That was why he had taken Lu Chen away so that Xia Ming would be forced to make an appearance.
As for Gu Ruoyun, she had said those things, not for the sake of exposing herself to Xia Ming's notice but to force him into confessing.
Indeed, Xia Ming had been far too confident in himself. He thought that it was not a big deal even if he had confessed. To him, no one would believe Gu Ruoyun's words! However, he never thought that Gu Ruoyun had incited him because she had made the necessary preparations.
"When do you plan to announce the truth to the world?"
Gu Ruoyun smiled, "When my master comes looking for me! I can't possibly not have him around at a time like that. By the way, Xiao Ye, I need your help."
Qianbei Ye smiled as he agreed.
"I haven't even told you what it is and you're already agreeing to it?"
Gu Ruoyun was a little speechless, Xiao Ye had agreed to it a little too easily.
Suddenly, Qianbei Ye's expression grew solemn. His blood-red eyes now lost their initially blood-thirsty look. Instead, they were filled with a steady sincerity.
