A Warning To Others

The stranger intimidated him.
“Governor,” the city guard suddenly emerged and greeted him. He kneeled and bowed before Ye Ling again. “Governor, you have to help me,” he pleaded with eyes full of sympathy.
Ye Ling was obviously puzzled. “What is the problem?”
The guard immediately pointed at Gu Xijiu and Di Fuyi and said, “They are the ones! I was doing my duties according to the laws of Luo Hua City and forbade entry of the elders, the women, and the children. However, they decided to threaten me. He put a sword on my neck to make me open the gate. It almost cost my life!” He then showed the bandage on his neck.
The bandage was stained with blood and was quite a horrible sight. Ye Ling turned to look at the rest of the soldiers from the wall and questioned them. “Is what he said true?”
The soldiers dared not tell any lies, so they all agreed. An eloquent man among the soldiers even described the entire scenario vividly to let the governor know what had really happened.
Ye Ling listened attentively with a smile and never interrupted. When the man was finally done, he let out a sigh. “Now, I know what happened.”
He gave the leader of the guards a wave and told him to come forward. “Come here. Let me look at your wound.”
The guard approached him in a panic and quickly revealed the wound under the bandage. The wound was a sight of gore. “Governor, please take a look at this.” “Indeed, the wound is quite severe,” there was a sympathetic tone in the governor’s voice.
“Exactly. Exactly. Governor, please take revenge for me. On behalf of your cousin.” The guard clenched his fist in indignation. Meanwhile, he gave Di Fuyi and Gu Xijiu a look to show his satisfaction about the consequences that they were about to face.
Gu Xijiu avoided eye contact, but she was still worried. The people around the governor all possessed great Kung Fu; even the worst one was at level six. As a result of the governor’s arrival, many soldiers had to secure the perimeter around him as a safety precaution. There were thousands of men standing quietly, just waiting for an order. Gu Xijiu and the rest of the villagers were surrounded.
If it were only Di Fuyi and Gu Xijiu alone, they had absolutely nothing to worry about. In the worst-case scenario, they could just teleport. There was no chance that the soldiers could even reach them. However, they had to take care of the villagers who stood behind them. These people did not know enough Kung Fu to protect themselves. The helpless villagers were merely easy targets for the group of soldiers who possessed high levels of spiritual power.
Gu Xijiu was concerned about the governor’s motive. If he intended to harm the villagers, she would teleport along with Di Fuyi to hold the governor captive. She maintained her composure, but secretly, she was all prepared. If anything went slightly wrong, she would make the first move.
The villagers’ safety was her most significant concern at the moment. Di Fuyi held her hand in a tight grasp, so he could certainly tell that she was sweating in nervousness. “Don’t worry. The guard is about to get very unlucky,” he directed an audio to her.
“Just relax and watch the show.” Di Fuyi gave her a tight smile as if he already saw it coming.
Ye Ling’s fingers were gracefully thin with well-trimmed nails. All his nails were sharply shaped, like the nails of a woman. At this very moment, his fingers lingered across the wound on the guard’s neck. “The wound is deep enough to slash your aorta open, isn’t it?”
“Yes, yes, it is a near miss,” the guard was still frightened.
“Did you let them in because your life was threatened?” Ye Ling continued.
