Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
Elder Huang's elderly features froze in place and he no longer heard anything else from the conversation. He only the name 'Huang Feifei' which was clearly mentioned by the vulgar-sounding man's voice. His elderly face instantly turned ashen.
This... How could this be?
Feifei had planned this matter all on her own?
Even so, how did Gu Ruoyun manage to record those voices in the jade pendant?
"You're framing me!" Huang Feifei recovered from her initial shock and screamed at Gu Ruoyun, "Don't think that you can prove I had sent those people simply with that jade ornament! I've never done such a thing. Father, please take this sl*t away! She actually has the audacity to make false accusations against me. I must have her sliced into a thousand pieces!"
Just as Huang Feifei spoke, she charged towards Gu Ruoyun as if seized by a bout of madness. She rushed with bared fangs and brandished her claws towards the jade ornament in Gu Ruoyun's hand.
"Huang Feifei, stop right there!"
A powerful wave of energy slammed into Huang Feifei's body. She was sent flying out of the way before she could even reach Gu Ruoyun. An elderly figure then descended from the sky as he stared at her emotionlessly.
"Huang Feifei, you're really great aren't you? You would even frame a guest of the Medicine Sect?"
Gao Lin lifted the corners of his lips into a cold smile as he stared down at the woman in yellow who was lying on the ground. His voice was sharp and cold.
All the witnesses were shocked to the core, especially the ones who had come to provoke Gu Ruoyun. They began to tremble as they never expected to be implicated at all!
Most of all, they had planted false evidence against Gu Ruoyun in front of the Sect Master!
"She's making false accusations against me." Huang Feifei gritted her teeth vehemently and glared at Gu Ruoyun, "I, Huang Feifei, have never done such a thing. This is all evidence that she had fabricated on her own!"
I wasn't going to confess anyway. As long I don't confess, this woman can't do anything to me!
At this moment, Huang Feifei missed the anxiety on Elder Huang's face as she entirely focused on defending herself.
"Fabricated? Hehe, Huang Feifei, do you think me a fool? Do you really think that you and your father are the ones who make the decisions here?" Gao Lin laughed icily, "The Gu girl's jade ornament is a divine weapon and it can record any conversation. I've read about this divine weapon in the ancient books. At this point, do you still want to claim that she's making false accusations against you?"
Upon hearing those words, Huang Feifei's expression turned ghostly and she looked absolutely horrified. However, beneath that horror lay a deep-seated venom.
Elder Huang finally regained his senses and glared hatefully at Gu Ruoyun's delicate and pretty features. He gritted his teeth and asked, "You had proof in your hands so why had you acted as if you didn't?"
"When on earth did I act as if I didn't have any proof?" Gu Ruoyun shrugged her shoulders, "If I didn't have proof, would I have suggested this wager?"
"You..." Elder Huang was maddened with anger and his elderly face filled with malevolence, "I had thought to let you off so I had initially refused the wager. At that time, you clearly let out a sigh of relief. That showed you had a guilty conscience!"
He thought that Gu Ruoyun had purposely acted guiltily to force him to give up on this wager. This way, she could escape this disaster. Who would have thought that she actually did have proof in her hands? Since that was the case, why would she act as if she did not?
Gu Ruoyun smiled, "If I hadn't done that, would you have accepted this wager so readily? If there's anything to blame, blame your lack of experience and your naivety. You're far too easy to fool."
Elder Huang nearly spat out a mouthful of blood. His eyes looked bloodshot as if he had not slept for a good few nights, glaring ferociously at Gu Ruoyun.
This damned girl, not only had she set me up, she's actually telling me that I lack experience?
Imagine a scene where an old man over fifty years of age was being scolded by a twenty-year-old little girl for lacking experience? Especially since the girl also said that he was naive which had led to him being fooled too easily?
