He looked up and said, “Did you just poison me?” He raised his hand and wanted to hurt Gu Xijiu. However, as soon as he used his spiritual power, the pain in his body became even more unbearable. Overwhelmed by the pain, he lay on the floor. He tried to use his spiritual power to expel the poison from within, but it only worsened his condition. In the end, he could not use any of his spiritual power.
Utterly shocked, he finally felt terrified. Indignant, he shouted at Gu Xijiu, “How dare you! How brave of you to poison me! If anything happens to me, Luo Hua City will fall.”
Gu Xijiu looked at him with a lack of interest in the city. “If I cannot make sure that my people are safe, why should I even care about Luo Hua City? I do not care, even if it crumbles.”
Her response dumbfounded Ye Ling.“Without Luo Hua City, do you think you can make it out alive? I can make an order now to arrest you and put you to death by dismembering your body!”
Gu Xijiu smiled; obviously, she did not feel threatened. “You may try. I will now give you 15 minutes to look for me. If you fail, you die.” Swiftly, she disappeared.
Ye Ling was completely in shock. Eagerly, he tried to stand up. “Send men to look for Miss Stone as soon as possible!”
Not more than three minutes later, a man came with some news. “Governor, Miss Stone is now at the outskirts of the city. Should we take her in?”
Ye Ling’s face sank. “Direct an audio message to her and ask her to come back,” he could not help but sigh.
Not even three minutes later, Gu Xijiu appeared in front of him right away. “How? Have you already agreed to my terms?”
Ye Ling’s face was as pale as a sheet. In a brief moment, the lady was able to travel to and fro from the city outskirts. If she really intended to stay away from him, there was no way he could reach her.
He demanded for her to give him the antidote. “Give it to me now!”
“Governor, you have to order for their release first.” Gu Xijiu then said politely, “Also, you have to promise that you will never put them through the same difficult situation again.”
Ye Ling’s stomach was extremely painful at that moment. He finally gave in and ordered his men to release the women. After his men left, he looked at Gu Xijiu dead in the eye and said, “Are we done?”
Gu Xijiu smiled and gave him a pill. Ye Ling quickly swallowed it. A few moments later, the sharp pain in his stomach was finally gone. He sat himself up and looked at Gu Xijiu fixedly, who was standing there carefree and leisurely, looking at him. “You are an evil woman!”
Gu Xijiu only smiled at him and said, “I could say the same about you.” She turned around and was ready to leave. “Thank you for the exquisite meal. Goodbye.”
Ye Ling stared at her back blankly, and a sudden idea occurred to him. With a sudden leap, he lunged towards her in full force, like a hungry wolf aiming at its prey. The lady was too naïve to give him the antidote so easily. This time, he had to give her a lesson.
Not only that he intended to seize her, but he also wanted to abolish her Kung Fu once and for all. Then, he would make her his woman. He intended to assault her for the next few days. He knew that Mr. Di was in love with Gu Xijiu. If he seized her, he could use her to threaten him. It was all a plan in Ye Ling’s head, and it was time to execute it.
His spiritual power was already at level nine, which was so much more advanced than Gu Xijiu’s. She was an easy target for him. Therefore, Ye Ling went for it. His first strike was a deadly one, for he needed to make sure that he could grab her at once. Before he could touch Gu Xijiu on her back, she suddenly took a huge leap forward. Ye Ling missed her.
