Elder Meng was shocked!
He didn’t follow Rong Zhen when she went to the hunting ground to catch the advanced fiend.
Besides, when Rong Zhen fell down from the cliff, she didn’t get a clear look at the other party’s face. Thus, nobody knew what exactly the advanced fiend that hurt her looked like.
Rong Zhen originally thought that the incident would just end with no conclusion, but she didn’t expect to meet the fiend today. Moreover, this fiend was clearly related to Chu Liuyue!
Elder Meng swiftly took out a thumb-sized silver container from his arms. This was the container specially used by Country Yao Chen’s royal family to seek help.
It would immediately explode once one injected their force into it.
Chu Liuyue squinted her eyes. She had heard of this before, and it was called a Silver Fly.
Everyone in Country Yao Chen’s royal family had one of their own, and they wouldn’t use it until it was a crucial moment.
This also meant that the person was in grave danger once this thing was activated.
The people in the royal family could rush over according to the signal the item gave out. The more important point was that once the Silver Fly exploded, people within a one-kilometer radius would be stained with a weird scent.
Those people could continue tracking them down according to the smell. In that case, it would unknowingly cause a lot more trouble.
Chu Liuyue lifted her hands and swiftly flung her dagger out.
The dagger was very fast, and it immediately struck Elder Meng’s wrist.
The Silver Fly fell onto the ground.
Elder Meng panicked as he immediately went forward to pick up the Silver Fly.
Xue Xue lifted its paws and swung them down harshly.
A few sharp light rays instantly flew out.
Elder Meng was shocked, and he immediately backed away to avoid them.
A red figure flashed past. The next moment, Tuan Zi held onto the Silver Fly and appeared in front of Chu Liuyue.
Chu Liuyue took the Silver Fly and gently patted Tuan Zi’s forehead. “Good foresight.”
Tuan Zi proudly waved its tail before shaking its butt at Rong Zhen and Elder Meng with a look of contempt.
Elder Meng’s heart turned cold. A formidable advanced fiend, a cunning Chu Liuyue, and a mysterious blood ferret… Rong Zhen and I aren’t their match!
At this point, Rong Zhen finally sensed the danger she was in as her lips turned white, and blood kept coming out of her mouth.
She forced her head up and looked at Chu Liuyue.
The face that was originally filled with arrogance and unruliness was left with deep horror. However, a hint of vengeance was hidden in the depths of her eyes.
“…It’s you… It’s you! Y-you sent this fiend over!” accused Rong Zhen with a shaky voice. “It’s you! You’ve long hated me, so you wanted to kill me, right?”
Chu Liuyue raised her brows. “You’re saying that… Xue Xue was the fiend who ruined your pearl of essence back then?”
“Why are you acting innocent?” At this point, Rong Zhen was on the verge of breaking down. Upon seeing Chu Liuyue’s seemingly ignorant face, she was so angry that she exploded and yelled at the top of her lungs. “Back then, you purposely sold the hunting ground and secretly let out the news that there would advanced fiends there to attract me over!”
“Then, you sent this fiend to sneak an attack on me, causing me to fall down the cliff. This destroyed my pearl of essence and caused me to become a total good-for-nothing. You did all of this because I humiliated you during the palace banquet back then. You’re such a vicious woman! The truth is here. Are you still trying to deny it?”
Chu Liuyue mulled over Rong Zhen’s words, and her eyes looked deep as she turned to glance at Xue Xue thoughtfully.
Xue Xue guiltily lowered its head and stared at its own paws.
Chu Liuyue lightly asked, “Xue Xue, were you really the one who pushed her off the cliff?”
Xue Xue laid motionless.
“Hm?” Chu Liuyue’s voice became louder.
Xue Xue immediately looked at her with puppy eyes. I was just carrying out my orders!
Chu Liuyue stared at the lion for a while and raised her brows in satisfaction after confirming that it wasn’t lying anymore. “It’s fine that you admit it. I don’t like little fellows that lie to me.”
Xue Xue hurriedly nodded.
At the side, Tuan Zi suddenly froze and secretly glanced at Chu Liuyue. After confirming that she wasn’t talking about it, Tuan Zi pulled its eyes away and avoided her line of sight.
Chu Liuyue’s lips suddenly curved up. “Good job!”
Xue Xue instantly heaved a sigh of relief as a big smile was plastered on its face, showing off its white teeth.
Rong Zhen almost died from anger. I really don’t know what Chu Liuyue is doing! She’s clearly the mastermind behind all of this, yet she’s still acting here!
Chu Liuyue looked at Rong Zhen, encircled her chest, and played with the dagger that had flown out. She then lazily said, “Rong Zhen, no matter if you believe it or not, I didn’t cause the destruction of your pearl of essence. However, I’m too lazy to explain so much to you now. Anyway, I’m already a ‘vicious woman’ in your eyes, right? Therefore, whatever I do, even if I kill you, it’ll be more than normal, right?”
Rong Zhen was so frightened that she trembled. “Country Yao Chen! I’m Country Yao Chen’s princess! You dare to kill me?”
“Why wouldn’t I?” interrupted Chu Liuyue as she surveyed her surroundings. “This place is very deserted, and it’s the best place to kill someone and destroy the evidence. Besides… you were the ones who brought me out secretly. Hence, nobody knows that the three of us are together except for you. Even if someone investigates this in the future, they won’t suspect me.”
Rong Zhen’s lips vibrated vehemently, but she couldn’t say a single word. This was because she knew very clearly that Chu Liuyue’s logic was flawless.
She looked at Chu Liuyue.
That woman stood there leisurely, and her smile was bright. However, the sharpness that glowed in her eyes was even colder than the blade of the dagger she was playing with in her hands.
Boundless fear overwhelmed Rong Zhen’s heart. At this very moment, she finally realized what it meant to be at someone’s mercy. Chu Liuyue can really kill me right here and now, and… she definitely would do it!
“C-Chu Liuyue… I beg of you… I beg of you, please don’t kill me… I-I was blind, and I offended you. Can you please not hold it against me? I-I can apologize to you! If you want, you can also use a rope to strangle my neck. I’ll learn how to bark like a dog for you, okay? I’m begging you!” Rong Zhen was so frightened that she let everything out just to survive.
Chu Liuyue looked at her with much interest. She initially thought that Rong Zhen was a spoiled and arrogant princess, but it now seemed like she was more flexible. However, it was still so-so.
Chu Liuyue smiled. “Rong Zhen, you don’t have to waste your breath. Right now, if you were me, would you let me live?”
Rong Zhen’s voice suddenly stopped. Of course, I wouldn’t! I have so many grudges with Chu Liuyue. If I had the chance to kill Chu Liuyue, I would definitely do it without any hesitation. It must be the same for Chu Liuyue!
Thinking of this, hopelessness gradually filled her eyes.
Chu Liuyue lifted her chin. “Don’t worry. Today is a decent day for me, so I’ll do it quickly.”
As she spoke, she aimed the dagger at Rong Zhen’s brows.
“Wait! I can tell you a secret about Rong Jin!”
