Chapter 38 – When meeting face to face on a narrow path, the brave will be victorious.
The corner of Su Luo’s lips turned into a nefarious and charming sneer.
Su Jingyu, wasn’t it you who wrongly accused me? Framed me? Then I’ll let you experience what it’s really like to be wrongly accused and to be framed!
Giving him a taste of his own medicine; Su Luo was very familiar with this type of thing.
Looking at that tiny black hole, Su Luo’s mouth tilted into a smirk, and then ruthlessly tossed the jade fish pendant into the hole. Moreover, she did not even bother to close the mechanism and immediately prepared to leave.
But at this time, suddenly from outside the sound of hubbub could be heard.
Faintly, torch light could be seen coming closer.
Su Luo moved close to the window and looked out, her heart tensed.
What bad luck. Su Zian really did bring people over.
Looks like he was not that stupid. He finally thought to check on the Hidden Treasure Pavilion.
Originally, if she did not find the Celestial Spirit water in the Hidden Treasure Pavilion, Su Luo planned to conceal herself in the hidden corners on the third floor.
Humans had innate habits. If Su Zian saw the disorder on the third floor, his first reaction was to check on the most precious treasure in his collection and look to see if it was stolen. This way, Su Luo who was hiding in a dark corner could clearly see the place where he stashed the treasure.
But now, since she had already obtained the Celestial Spirit water from the box, she did not have to waste more effort.
But Su Luo could totally imagine it. When her cheap father walked up to the third floor and sees the disordered scene in front of him, it was very likely that he would be so furious that he might even die from anger.
Just thinking about this made Su Luo’s mood especially happy.
Seeing that the pursuing force was about to arrive, Su Luo did not panic then. Many years as an assassin had trained her to possess formidable courage and wisdom.
She did not go downstairs. Rather, she nimbly climbed out the window, and with a leopard cat grace and quickness, quietly slid down the pillar.
With an effort that lasted a blink of an eye, she now stood at the foot of the wall.
At this time, she did not flee in the direction of her distant courtyard, but towards Su Jingyu’s courtyard.
On the pathway not far from Su Jingyu’s courtyard, Su Luo unfortunately came across a person. This person was none other than the person Su Luo ruthlessly kicked into the wall three days ago, until she fainted dead away, Nanny Gui.
Nanny Gui had just regained consciousness today. She struggled to get up because she want to go to Madam’s courtyard, tattletale to the Madam about who severely wounded her, and also had to tell Madam to carefully guard against that Fourth Miss.
So at this time, Nanny Gui, with the support of a maid, slowly walked toward Madam’s courtyard step by step.
Madam’s courtyard was very close to Su Jingyu’s courtyard. This narrow cobblestoned path was the only route, so she and Su Luo met face to face on this narrow path.
As a result, when Su Luo violently charged out of the side path, she saw Nanny Gui at first glance.
“AHH——” When the little maid saw the masked person in black cloth, she subconsciously shouted out loud.
Nanny Gui originally could resist for a while, but who told her not to heal first from her serious wounds? Her head was knocked until it was confused and dizzy; her butt ached to the point that it felt as if it would cracked wide open. Thus, she did not have the strength or time to put up any resistance. Su Luo chopped towards her with a knife in hand and immediately killed off Nanny Gui.
Originally, Su Luo did not wish to kill Nanny Gui, but she could see at a glance that Nanny Gui was unsettled and this old witch was currently heading toward Madam’s courtyard; she was going there to tattletale.
The current Su Luo did not have the slightest spirit strength, so on this continent, she didn’t even have the strength to protect herself. Consequently, she had keep a low-profile at the moment. She had to conceal her strength and bide her time.
If Madam knew of her talent and shrewdness, it would perhaps not be as convenient when conducting such clandestine actions in the future.
Chapter 39 – The wicked sneer
Su Xi was easy to deceive, but that Madam Su may not be. Thus, Su Luo made a preemptive strike to kill Nanny Gui, and the death would end all her troubles.
In any case, Nanny Gui’s offense was the former mistreatment of this body’s original owner, so she should have died long ago!
Moreover, since she was now dead, this would also get rid of Madam’s right hand man. Acting upon her own matters would be much easier in the future.
This was a move that would let her gain many benefits, which was why Su Luo in one strike hacked Nanny Gui to death without the slightest of hesitation .
However, Su Luo let the little maid go and only knocked her unconscious.
Because it was useful to leave the maid alive, as at a future time, she might be expected to testify.
After disposing those two, Su Luo rapidly sped up as her figure flashed away like lightning.
Her footsteps temporarily stopped, then darted toward Su Jingyu’s Heaven and Earth courtyard. Her small body was like that of an leopard cat, light and nimble.
Not long after, she arrived at the Heaven and Earth courtyard.
Tonight, Su Jinyu did not go out, and instead stayed in his room to cultivate.
“There’s an assassin!” Su Luo lowered her voice and deliberately shouted out.
She purposefully created a racket outside so the people in the courtyard could see a black shadow leaping in.
“There’s an assassin, capture the assassin!”
There was no end to the people swiftly calling out the same warning.
Su Jingyu’s brows tightly knitted because in his eyes, this noise disturbed his cultivation.
But the clamor outside seemed to have the tendency to only get bigger and bigger.
He had no choice but to stand up and walk out his door.
And at the exact time he walked out, Su Luo nevertheless, took advantage of the confusion and quietly flashed into the interior of the room.
Seeing that not a soul was in sight, the corner of her mouth raised into a wicked sneer. In regards to the next item in this program, she was really really enthusiastically looking forward to it.
Su Jingyu ah, Su Jingyu. You were the one who walked out to give me this opportunity. When that time comes, you can’t really blame me.
Su Luo swiftly removed the small box from her bosom and picked up the bottle of Celestial Spirit Water. She was just about to close the box when right at that time——
Borrowing the bright candlelight, she saw a slip of old-fashioned paper pressed underneath the box. She picked it up to get a closer look and discovered that the paper looked like a map. But it had crooked lines and was hard to comprehend.
And also this map was incomplete. It ought to be only a quarter of the original map.
What kind of map is this? It’s also suffused in yellow. It seems to be really old. Su Luo frowned as a trace of uncertainty flashed across her eyes.
But it was placed together with the Celestial Spirit Water so presumably, it was also something precious. After all, she could not let Su Jingyu off so lightly.
Based on her “take any advantage presented and not taking would be stupid” moral principle, Su Luo simply collected the map into her bosom.
Then she took off her black cloth, the cloth wrapped around her face and hair, and even the brocade box. All of it were stuffed together under the bed.
Her actions were extremely fast; the matter was completed before the time it takes a flint to light a fire.
As she looked at the things stuffed underneath the bed that deliberately exposed a little bit of black cloth, Su Luo’s mouth hooked into a cold smile.
Su Jingyu, is it fun to wrongly accuse someone? Then I’ll let you really have fun playing this game. Hopefully, you won’t play to death this time, because your little sister still has a lot of fun tricks waiting for you.
Su Luo took one last glance at the room. After confirming that she did not leave any errors, she lept out the window and her small body rapidly vanished into the blackness of the dark night.
On the other side, after Nangong Liuyun received Su Luo’s signal, he quickly followed behind her in a spontaneous fashion and the growing tail of people headed toward Su Jingyu’s Heaven and Earth courtyard.
Since this was a framing, then she clearly must let this play be acted out fully.
