Once she had said her piece, Xia Chuxue's body went berserk. An infinite amount of energy began to fill her body like a balloon filling up with air. Her body began to expand and she looked as if she would burst at any moment.
"Trying to explode yourself?"
Qianbei Ye saw what Xia Chuxue was doing and his red lips curled into a malicious yet eerie smile.
Suddenly, the berserk energy within Xia Chuxue's body stopped. Her entire body now looked like a largely expanded, round and plump balloon.
"What is this? What have you done to me?" Fear took over Xia Chuxue's heart and because her face was completely covered in blood, one could not see her expression at all.
"Yun'er, what do you think of her appearance now?" Qianbei Ye stroked his chin and turned towards Gu Ruoyun, "Her powers will completely disappear soon and her amputated arm won't grow back. Also, the scars on her body will never go away. If we let her go on like this for the rest of her life... I don't think that's a bad idea."
Xia Chuxue shrieked. She had thought that Qianbei Ye's cruel actions would stop now but she never expected this man to be so vicious!
If she was to live like this, she might as well die!
"Mm," Gu Ruoyun nodded and seemed quite satisfied with Qianbei Ye's suggestion, "This is a rather good idea. Right now, she has not only lost the ability to cultivate, she has also become a cripple. Most importantly, due to the powerful amount of energy she had pumped into her body to try to explode herself, her body has expanded. It won't be possible for her to return back to normal in this lifetime and it would be very difficult for her to even move around. Add on the fact that no one is around to take care of her, she wouldn't be able to live for very much longer."
Gu Ruoyun giggled softly as she looked at Xia Chuxue's body which seems like it would explode with one poke.
This, to her, was the best ending of all!
Xia Chuxue finally despaired, she now knows what a true demon was! If she were to be reborn again, she would never want to be Xia Ming's daughter nor would she wish to provoke these people again!
Besides, when she compared Lu Chen and Xia Ming's endings to hers, they were far better off than what she has to endure!
At least, after holding on for a few more days, they could leave this world and would no longer need to suffer such torture. However, she would linger and suffer until the day she died!
Also, she did not even have the ability to kill herself now!
"Yun'er." Qianbei Ye furrowed his brows as his crimson eyes shot towards the air which was now riddled with unsteady fluctuations. His peerlessly beautiful features slowly grew cold, "Someone's here and there are quite a lot of them. The opposition consists of Martial Supremes!"
Gu Ruoyun shuddered and followed Qianbei Ye's line of sight. Not too long after, countless figures appeared from thin air, standing tall in the skies.
At the Imperial Palace of Drifting Wind Country, Supreme Gao sensed something and a look of surprise flashed in his eyes.
"Why has so many Martial Supremes arrived in the Drifting Wind Country? Besides, on this mainland, only that organization would be able to muster this many Martial Supremes in one go! However, it looks like these people are headed for the Xia family home? Why? Could it be that something else has happened at the Xia family home? No, I must investigate."
Supreme Gao relaxed his furrowed brow and disappeared from the study in a flash.
At the tavern.
The man in red, who had been waiting for Gu Ruoyun, had sensed the change in aura at the same time. His handsome visage instantly grew cold and an icy chill appeared in his deep, dark eyes.
"It's those guys? What are they doing here? Could it be that they've found out about my whereabouts? No! That can't be right! They're not heading towards me, but..."
Suddenly, he was struck with a thought and his expression changed drastically, "Not good! They must have found out about Yun'er's identity!"
