He gently sighed. “Miss Gu is so beautiful. What is your plan for the future? You should know that this city is not suitable for living. The majority of the people you brought in can only live at the lowest level in our city.”
Gu Xijiu replied, “I will do everything in my ability to make sure that does not happen!”
Ye Ling smiled. “Miss Gu’s ability is indeed powerful. Under the rules of Luo Hua City, you can get the post of general and get a big house with servants. However, it is only limited to both of you. In Luo Hua City, we have a strict hierarchy rule. Although you can get a house, the servants inside would be delegated by the city. You can’t use your own people. Those villagers can’t be your servants. They can only work according to the rules of Luo Hua City.” In other words, the men from the village had to work hard under harsh conditions while the women must be slaves or even prostitutes.
Ye Ling looked at her with eyes as sharp as a knife. “This is the rules of Luo Hua. Except for the owner of the city, no one can violate it!”
Gu Xijiu bit her lips slightly and suddenly smiled. Although her skin was not in good condition, her facial features were still beautiful. When she smiled, it felt like how the flowers blossomed in the spring. “What can you do to accommodate my requirement?”
Ye Ling looked at her with a pair of red phoenix eyes. Then, he slowly said, “Be my woman!”
Gu Xijiu raised her eyebrows involuntarily. “Huh?”
“I will only fulfill a request from my woman.”
Gu Xijiu remained silent. “Wouldn’t it be too cruel? What about your loyal subordinates? They have done so much for you. Do you not fulfill their requests?”
Ye Ling smirked. “I only treatthem like dogs.” As long as he gave enough meat and bones, he would never be worried that they would rebel. Besides, no one could challenge him.
Gu Xijiu sighed. “What you said can really break the hearts of your subordinates. If they pass the message out…”
Ye Ling interrupted. “They won’t pass it out.” He looked back to the two women behind him. The two women were pale. They barely smiled to express their loyalty. “My master,rest assured, we will never leak anything from the conversation out!”
Ye Ling smiled, raised his hand, and took two glasses of wine over. “Good, these drinks are for you.”
The two women glanced at each other and did not dare to pick the glasses up.
Ye Ling’s face turned serious. “What’s the matter? This is a reward for your loyalty. Are you afraid that I will poison you?”
The two women immediately kneeled and said they did not dare to doubt their master. They both reached out and took the wine to drink.
The two women’s faces turned green, and they died on the spot.
Ye Ling did poison them, and it was the legendary poison referred to as “die in three steps.” It was not even ten seconds after they had consumed the drink that the poison started to affect them. The two women fell to the ground, and only had time to shout once. In the next second, they could no longer move. The poison was so potent that it was more effective than cutting someone’s head off with a knife.
It was such a poisonous drug that Gu Xijiu could not help even if she wanted to. She was still sitting there, holding a glass of wine in her hand, but she had cold sweat all over.
Ye Ling looked at her slightly pale face and smiled. He said softly, “Only the dead will really keep secrets. I can only be assured by the dead.”
Gu Xijiu raised her eyebrows again. “Were they not your women?”
Ye Ling shook his head. “Of course not. They are just slaves. There are fewer than five women who can be my lady. Xijiu, you are one of them.”
What a bastard! Gu Xijiu’s fingers were secretly pinching a spell in her sleeve, but she still remained calm and composed.
