In the blink of an eye, she had arrived behind Li Qi, whose legs turned soft. She pulled up Li Qi who was now lying on the floor.
"It can be done directly."
“Ah!!” Li Qi screamed in fright because of Shen Yanxiao. He was incomparably arrogant before; now, his whole body was covered in cold sweat and his complexion was very pale.
"What do you want to do, Shen Yanxiao?" Pei Yuan was startled. But under the deterrence of eight Mythological Beasts, he did not dare to act rashly.
Shen Yanxiao's eyebrow raised as she looked at the embarrassing figure of Li Qi. From her mouth hung a trace of a smile.
"What do I want to do? Of course, it's revenge."
Pei Yuan froze. He immediately recalled Li Qi's insults to Shen Yanxiao today. Shen Yanxiao had not reacted, not because she did not have a temper. She was only taking some things into account so she did not make a move. Pei Yuan was really regretting now. If he knew that this would be the result, he would not have provoked the sleeping dragon.
Shen Yanxiao had no scruples now. So how could she let Li Qi off, the one who had badly insulted her?
"State Preceptor save me! State Preceptor save me!" Li Qi struggled desperately and tried to beg for Pei Yuan's help.
Pei Yuan didn't have the heart to just abandon Li Qi as he said, "Li Qi had offended you before, but I would still request that you consider his face as Long Xuan Empire's official and have mercy on him."
Shen Yanxiao laughed softly and responded, "It's quite regrettable that I am never a person who repay evil with good. To be honest, I never intended to let go of this guy. Even if you didn't expose the demons, I would still send someone to kill Li Qi after you returned to the capital."
She endured because there were people she was worried about. But her patience was only momentary. No one would be able to slip away after provoking her.
Pei Yuan still wanted to say something, but Shen Yanxiao immediately added, "State Preceptor Pei Yuan, there’s no room for you to discuss this any longer. Rather than worry about this scum, it's better to care about yourself and the Prince."
When Shen Yanxiao’s words hit the center of Pei Yuan’s life door, even if he had the intention to help Li Qi, he would have to care more about Long Yue.
Pei Yuan's silence broke Li Qi's last strand of life.
Li Qi begged for mercy with tears and snot on his face.
Unfortunately, Shen Yanxiao had no plan to let him off.
"Didn't you like throwing insults here and there? I want to see if you dare to say anything now." Shen Yanxiao kicked Li Qi to the ground and looked down at the man who was shedding bitter tears.
Where could Li Qi still find the courage to act arrogant? He knelt on the ground as he begged for mercy, "I don't dare. City Lord, I beg you to let me go. I've made a mistake, my mouth is cheap. You're a great person who rarely stoops to pettiness, please don't lower yourself to trash such as me."
Shen Yanxiao but sneered and kicked Li Qi out of the way with her foot.
"Take this guy away for me and lock him up. Without my orders, don't give him any food or water."
She would not beat him or kill him. She would make him starve to death and slowly wait for his death in the dark corners.
Although killing him with a knife was efficient, it was going too easy on him.
The higher demon, who stood at one side and waiting for the opportunity to move, immediately walked forward to pull up the struggling Li Qi.
Hearing Li Qi's screams, Pei Yuan's face was unsightly to the extreme.
Shen Yanxiao was done dealing with Li Qi and looked at Pei Yuan and Long Yue.
"Now I'll offer you two paths. Do as I say and write a letter to that old fogy in the Imperial Capital. Tell him that you want to stay in the Barren Land for a while. The reason is that everything in here is almost in your grasp. You just need to slowly shift all of the power into your hands. If you cooperate with me, you will still be treated as distinguished guests of The Rising Sun City."Support us & read advance unedited chapter in our patreon!
