There was nothing in the woman’s hand, but everyone heard a ripping sound that seemed to be amplified in the still silence.
It was the sound of a sharp weapon piercing through flesh and blood.
Gong Da’s eyes were wide open, as if in a trance, before he fully recovered, the woman had already rushed in front of him, her right hand holding something empty, and then his heart was pierced by some sharp weapon.
Converging air to be shaped like an object was one of the highest magic skill.
Nan Xun pierced the invisible wind knife into Gong Da’s chest, her eyes stared at him coldly while her hands gripped the knife and stirred it hard.
The next moment, another ripping sound was heard.
The wind knife was stabbed in before it was pulled back out. Because of the strength the woman used, the blood from Gong Da’s chest spurted out and splashed right on her face.
But she didn’t even blink her eyes despite the damp, hot and fishy thick blood on her face, she watched on that red hole she made with cold eyes.
The fresh blood rapidly painted a large portion of his white cloth.
Gong Da panted with short breath and pointed to the woman in front of him, “You… how could you…”
Before he could finish this sentence, he fell to his knees while his eyes lost their focus a little.
He never expected that he would die by a woman one day, furthermore, this woman was a cheap prostitute from red-light district.
However, even if his life was quickly passing by, he didn’t regret what he did today.
His empty eyes looked on to the sky, as if he was seeing the scene when he first saw the Lord in there.
Maybe others won’t understand his fanatical pursuit for State Teacher. Only he knew how the Lord pulled him back to life from the brink of death and loneliness when he was 6 years old and gave him a life in luxury, teaching him witchcraft skill.
He was without parents when he was young, it was the State Teacher who descended from the sky like a god that brought him into a world he never dared to imagine before.
Yes, the Lord was his god, and he won’t let anyone to desecrate the god in his heart.
That’s why he wanted to kill the woman who had tainted the Lord, because only by killing her did the Lord would turn back to become the former aloft, cold and indifferent god.
Everyone should have no other choice but to kneel on the ground and look up at the Lord, he should be one high above mortals and receive everybody’s praise.
For this, he didn’t hesitate to cooperate with the Queen.
He knew that the night of full moon was the day when the Lord would receive backlash from his witchcraft, so he made a plan that can kill two birds with one stone.
The Queen told him that there was a kind of incense inside the Emperor’s study. There won’t be any adverse effect when one smell this incense alone, but when it’s combined with sandalwood incense, it can secretly activate the magic movement and hasten the Lord’s unmentionable disease to an earlier date.
It’s very dangerous when the Lord’s backlash occurred, it’s better if Gong Shijiu took the initiative and touched him as it’s very possible that the frenzied Lord would directly kill her.
However, if Gong Shijiu escaped the catastrophe, he would break into the main hall and accuse her of conspiring against the Lord.
This morning was the first time he ever saw the Lord lying on the bed with disheveled clothes, just like a fallen god. His heart was so angry that he couldn’t wait for the cunning woman to be splattered with blood.
He calculated everything, but he didn’t expect that Gong Shiqi would die for this woman, furthermore, he also didn’t expect that the woman was so powerful…
Gong Da slowly closed his eyes. At the last moment of his life, the picture in his mind stopped at the beginning when that man held out his hand for him. His gaze was cold and indifferent, but he was the one who saved him like a god…
Gong Da died, his hair slowly turned gray before eventually all turned into snow-shite color. His young face also withered like a tree bark; wrinkles piled up on his face.
Moran Hall’s disciples were shocked, Gong Da’s appearance after his death made them took a step back subconsciously.
It’s like this, they’re going to turn like this after they die!
No, they don’t want to die, after death, all the lives that the Lord had given them will be taken back, and they will turn old with pieces of sagging skin hanging from their bones, so ugly!
Nan Xun’s eyes swept over all the people present one by one, the corners of her mouth rose slightly with a ridiculing smile, “Come on, come and kill me, don’t you all want to kill me, this demoness?”
After a moment of dead silence, Gong Er suddenly stood up and looked at her with complicated eyes and said, “Shijiu, that’s enough. The Lord is unconscious, Gong Da and Gong Shiqi both died because of you, what else do you want?”
Nan Xun burst into laughter and said with a mocking expression, “What do I want? From beginning to end, it’s not what I want, but what you want!”
“I just like the Lord, what’s wrong with it?” Nan Xun looked at them coldly, “The Lord is still unconscious, and I’m more worried about him than you guys, even if I can hurt myself, I would never hurt the Lord!”
Speaking until this, Nan Xun’s expression suddenly changed, her eyes quickly dimmed.
She turned around all of a sudden, her back to the crowd while saying coldly, “You all go, Shiqi has died for me, I’m tired, I don’t want to hurt people anymore.”
Several people exchanged glances, then two people stepped forward and carried away Gong Da’s body. As for Gong Shiqi, just when several people were still hesitating whether to carry him too, the woman with her back facing them said, “You can also bring back Shiqi’s body. Moran Hall is his home, what he did today is all for me, I hope you can give him a proper burial.”
Gong Er nodded and said, “As you said, Shiqi is innocent.”
When everyone was gone, Nan Xun was still standing there, motionless. The air was filled with a faint smell of blood, reminding her of what had just happened.
Little Eight sighed, “Is this Gong Shiqi stupid? You’re about to catch Gong Da’s palm, why did he stupidly block it? Dying in vain ah.”
Nan Xun’s mouth was pressed tightly, not speaking any word.
Seeing her like this, Little Eight suddenly became quieter, his attitude changed, and he immediately admitted his mistake, “I’m sorry ah, Nan Xun, this grandpa has seen too much life and death, that’s why this grandpa doesn’t feel anything special even if Gong Shiqi died… sorry. This grandpa can’t feel the same way as you do, but this grandpa still shouldn’t make fun of someone who just died.”
Nan Xun still didn’t speak, staring into the distance with blank eyes.
Little Eight, “Aish, don’t be like this, okay? I know that Gong Shiqi’s death makes you sad, but it has already happened, and you also killed Gong Da for revenge, being sad is useless ah. Still, I have to compliment you, that scene when you killed Gong Da just now was so cool, simply brilliant!”
After Little Eight performed a one-man-show for a long time, he finally found something wrong and asked in a hurry, “Dear da, what’s the matter with you?”
Nan Xun took a deep breath, and after a while passed, she finally said, “Little Eight, I’m blind.”
Little Eight: !
Nan Xun continued, “I’m also deaf.”
Little Eight: …
