Translator:EndlessFantasy TranslationEditor:EndlessFantasy Translation
Although Princess Yuanyuan did not expect Gu Xijiu to scream to attract a crowd, she had turned things in her favor in public and had more reasons to kill her now! She could use these witnesses to defend herself if Di Fuyi found out about it.
It was her priority to get rid of Gu Xijiu as quickly as possible.“Take her down!” Her servants were just waiting for her instruction. They shouted and rushed over once they heard it!
Gu Xijiu’s eyes narrowed. Abruptly, she pulled little Xie Zhi and swiftly moved about a hundred feet from her previous location.
Princess Yuanyuan was shocked and thought she was going to escape. Fortunately, she managed to locate her and secretly breathed a sigh of relief. If Gu Xijiu had not attracted such a crowd, Princess Yuanyuan could have used the safety of the child to threaten her; but in the eyes of the public, she did not want to destroy her reputation by holding a child as a hostage. Hence, she had to scrap that plan.
Nonetheless, because she was cautious of Gu Xijiu’s teleportation ability, she still took a few steps closer to the infant just to check on it. What Princess Yuanyuan did not expect was that Gu Xijiu, who has been surrounded by various weapons, actually ignored the danger and suddenly moved nearer to the princess!
She unsheathed her sword and aimed it at an area close to the princess. Princess Yuanyuan was certainly surprised by her attack and subconsciously wanted to block it. However, the other party was too fast, and she could not stop it.
She just heard a loud blow as though a giant balloon had burst. There was a momentary flash of gold light and a small area of an enchanted barrier ruptured. It revealed the big net inside it along with a child who was stuck in the net.
At this point, Gu Xijiu was completely focused on retrieving the child to safety. She managed to get her hands on the baby; however, she was unable to escape the sword that stabbed her from the back. It was Princess Yuanyuan’s!The sword was like a poisonous snake that headed straight into Gu Xijiu’s left rib.
Gu Xijiu’s face was instantly pale. The swordsmanship of Princess Yuanyuan was quite alike with China’s One-Point-To-Bleed skill. Although there would not be a lot of bleeding, it was ten times more painful than a normal sword wound! It hurt her so much that she almost fell to her knees.
Even though she was in significant pain, a sudden thought came to her mind. While falling, she quickly turned around, and the sword in her palm was directed to Princess Yuanyuan’s neck! After all, Gu Xijiu used to be a killer. Her estimations were typically accurate and precise.
Despite being seriously injured by Princess Yuanyuan, Gu Xijiu now had the opportunity to cut off her head! All things considered, it would be a win for her.What she did not see coming was that when her sword was about to cut into the delicate neck of the princess, a white light suddenly flashed, and a silk thread wrapped around her sword, preventing it from moving forward even an inch.
It seemed that Princess Yuanyuan had cheated death. She quickly leaped two feet away and shouted in a trembling voice, “Brother!”
Gu Xijiu managed to witness the power of the silk thread. It had actually stopped her sword and even hurt her palm. She could barely hold her sword well.
She took the net with one hand and used the sword to support her body with the other. Then, she looked up and saw a figure in the distance. This person had black hair and wore a mask. It was certainly a compelling sight.It was Di Fuyi, the current Devil King!
