Chapter 916: False Charges (3)
When she remembered this, her apprehension slowly melted away.
"If you are truly able to prove it, Huang Feifei's fate shall be left into your care. May I ask if you, Elder Huang, would have any objections?" Gao Lin's gaze turned towards Elder Huang as he queried.
Elder Huang wrinkled his brows.
After all, he was still a little more old-fashioned when compared with Huang Feifei. Even though he had never once paid any notice to Gu Ruoyun in the beginning, he began to hesitate after hearing her words.
Could it be that she actually has a hidden chess piece which was why she had dared to speak with such confidence?
"What's the matter?" Gu Ruoyun smiled mildly but her eyes remained just as cold as ever. However, that voice made the Huang father and daughter pair feel very uncomfortable, "Are you scared? Since that's the case, why not just admit that you were the ones who had recruited these people to falsely accuse me. As long as you confess, I will let you off willingly."
Elder Huang stared at the woman in green's face which was glowing with confidence. He could not help but want to let this bet go.
The future was long. If she was truly able to obtain proof, then they should not rush things. Besides, the Medicine Sect will fall into his hands sooner or later. By then, he could attack her at the same time so why shoulder the risk now?
Elder Huang relaxed his brow, "How about we let this go for now."
If this woman does not have any proof, how could she act with such confidence?
However, just as Elder Huang said this, he clearly saw Gu Ruoyun heave a sigh of relief!
This realization shook him, he quickly regained his senses and smiled curtly.
He now assumed that this woman had carried such a confident look on her face to create doubt in him so they would let her off. Unfortunately, regardless of her great acting skills, she had been exposed in the end.
"No!" Huang Feifei glared at Gu Ruoyun, "A bet is a bet. Why should I have to fear this woman? She can produce the evidence if she has the ability! I simply do not believe that she can prove her innocence!"
"Since that's what Fei'er wants, I'll agree to your terms."
Elder Huang smiled icily as he turned around, faced Gao Lin and said, "I agree to this wager. If she is successful in proving her innocence, she may do whatever she wishes to Fei'er. If there's no proof, you would not be able to shield her anymore!"
When Xia Linyu heard this, he stared at the Huang father and daughter as if they were a pair of idiots.
Would my sister ever do anything without a guarantee?
"It's settled, since both sides are in an agreement, I'm willing to be the notary." Gao Lin smiled and turned towards Gu Ruoyun, "Gu girl, please show us your evidence."
Honestly speaking, he believes that Gu Ruoyun has a good shot at winning this wager. This way, they could chip away at the Huang father and daughter's arrogance.
"I've already prepared the evidence."
A malevolent smile hung on Gu Ruoyun's face. With a flick of her hand, a jade ornament appeared in her palm.
Elder Huang did not know why but when he saw the smile on Gu Ruoyun's face, an uncomfortable pang began to bubble up from the recesses of his heart. He was just about to speak when they all heard a vulgar voice coming from the jade pendant.
"Oh, just as I was thinking of taking the brother away, the sister returns? Since that's the case, why don't the both of you come with me; I have an appetite for both men and women anyway. Hahaha!"
"You want to have both Yu'er and me? Are certain that you can pay the price?"
"Haha, even if a hundred of you attacked me, I can definitely take you. Woman, you've offended Huang Feifei so it won't end well for you! If you still wish to live, try and please me and I'll ask her to be merciful to you. Otherwise, believe me, you would never be able to live for more than three days!"
"It's not your fault for lacking intellect but it's your own idiocy for allowing someone else to use you!"
"All of you, go, as long as we can catch this woman, Lady Feifei will reward you."
