1490 The Empire“s Elite“s Cover-Up 1

    Lin You laughed icily as he stared disdainfully at Li Qing's increasingly furious face.

    "Just because you're standing up for her doesn't mean that it proves her character! If she had not enchanted you, would you be helping her?"


    Li Qing trembled with fury and was about to retort when a chilly voice rang out from behind him.

    "Since I know that you're the one who had wounded Dong Fang, this makes things easier. For every blow you've stuck, I'll pay you back with the same amount, alright?"

    Dong Fang shook and stared at the woman's chilly exterior. His eyes were filled with a complicated expression.

    She's... Standing up for me?

    Right in front of the Empire's elites?

    Dong Fang felt deeply moved at the thought of this and his heart filled with even more determination to serve Gu Ruoyun.

    "You alone?" Lin You laughed icily and exclaimed disdainfully, "Your powers are insufficient to earn the right to fight with me!"

    "Dong Fang, how many times did he strike you?"

    Gu Ruoyun ignored Lin You and asked Dong Fang instead.

    "One... One blow," Dong Fang gulped. "But the others did strike me several times more."

    "Alright, I understand." Gu Ruoyun calmly replied. She then turned her gaze towards Lu Yun and the rest of the group and asked again, "How about the rest of you? I want to know the exact amount of times you were hit."

    The rest felt shaken as well and they looked at each other, unsure of how to answer Gu Ruoyun's request.

    Mu Ying certainly did not need to think too much as he honestly replied, "I've calculated it. The total number of fists we've endured is twenty strikes."

    "Twenty strikes?" Gu Ruoyun slowly turned her gaze towards Lin You and calmly remarked, "Then I will give no more and no less. I'll return twenty strikes to you, alright?"


    Lin You burst into laughter. "Even if I were to stand still and allow you to strike me twenty times, you will never be able to make me falter a single step with those tiny arms and scrawny thighs of yours! Come on then, hit me with your fist! I'd like to see who ends up being humiliated in the end."

    As he spoke, Lin You pointed at his chest and spoke in a loud and smug voice.

    Elder Wuxu frowned but did not interject. Instead, he was quietly observing the situation with an icy glare.

    "Are you sure that you can stand there and let me hit you without moving?" Gu Ruoyun raised her brows. Her tone carried the sense of a forced smile.

    Lu Yun and the rest stared at Lin You as if they were looking at an idiot.

    Lin You was only at the mid-stage of the exceptional state while Gu Ruoyun has reached the late-stage of the exceptional state and he still wants to stand there and not move. Is he not even going to put up any defenses to endure her fists? Has this fellow gotten sick of living and wants someone to escort him on his way to death?

    Lin You's thoughts were very different from theirs.

    He wants to allow Gu Ruoyun to hit him without putting up any defenses so that she will lose face when she was unable to move him at all. This way, it could be considered as standing up for Su Lin!

    "Hmph, come at me then! Use all your might and hit me on my chest! I want to make you understand the vast difference between you and me!" Lin You laughed maniacally and shouted smugly.

    "Got it."

    Gu Ruoyun nodded. Since the opponent has invited her to do so with such kind hospitality, why should she stand on ceremony?

    The look on Elder Wuxu's face, who had stayed quiet the entire time, changed drastically when he saw Gu Ruoyun's fist gradually filling with spiritual energy. He quickly stepped forward to stop her but it was too late. Just as he was about to act, Gu Ruoyun's fist has already landed on Lin You's chest.


    Lin You's clothes were instantly ripped to shreds as he had just encountered an explosion. A powerful force traveled into his body before dispersing into the air, causing the dust behind him to fly into the surroundings. His body then shot out of the way after receiving that blow...
