1508 Qianbei Ye Returns 4

    The Left Protector had anticipated the crowd's reaction. The Underworld has such great prestige, who would disbelieve her words?

    Therefore, even if Gu Ruoyun had not stolen the spiritual beast, she had to shoulder the blame for this crime!

    "Gu Ruoyun, since you've stolen this spiritual beast, you have lost in today's competition. Therefore, I declare Su Lin as the winner of the tenth round!"

    Dong Fang and the others were enraged.

    This was clearly a case of an annoying troublemaker planting false charges!

    The members of the Underworld's favoritism was blatantly obvious. They would do anything to ensure Su Lin's victory!

    Gu Ruoyun had remained calm in the face of the Underworld's accusations but when she looked at the Left Protector, her eyes were chilly.

    "Did you say that I stole this little fellow?"

    "That's right." The Left Protector had no idea what Gu Ruoyun planned to say but nodded anyway, "This spiritual beast belongs to our Young Master! How had our Young Master's spiritual beast come into your possession? What other possibility is there aside from theft?"

    Gu Ruoyun smiled. "I had thought that the members of the Underworld would be intelligent people but I never expected them to make such a low-class mistake. Next time, before you try to frame someone, you'd better consider the consequences carefully to prevent yourselves from falling into your own trap."

    The Left Protector's expression sank. If she had not needed to maintain her dignity as a cultivator, she would have lost all courtesy towards this audacious woman!

    "Gu Ruoyun, what are you talking about? You'd better give a good explanation or you'll never be able to shoulder the crime of false accusations towards me!"

    Gu Ruoyun looked at the Left Protector's mildly ugly expression as she replied, "You accuse me of infiltrating the Underworld and stealing from you? Doesn't that mean that the members of the Underworld far too incompetent that I would be able to infiltrate it without anyone knowing? Besides, the Underworld's location is a mystery so how would I know?"

    The Left Protector fell silent as her expression grew increasingly horrendous.

    Everyone in the arena could not help but steal glances towards her as they made all sorts of guesses in their hearts.

    Gu Ruoyun was right, the Underworld's location was a mystery! Even if she had been lucky enough to find out, how could she have possibly have infiltrated the Underworld to steal that spiritual beast egg? If she has manged to get away with it, does that not mean that the Underworld's cultivators would be considered as next to useless?

    Besides, based on the look on the Left Protector's face, Gu Ruoyun was clearly right. The Left Protector was unable to explain herself.

    "As the proverb goes, do not air one's dirty laundry in public. I did not want to say this initially but," the Left Protector paused for a moment. There was a neutral expression on her face as she continued, "I've known this woman for a while now! Back then, she had collapsed at the foot of the Underworld's mountain and our Young Master had found her by accident. Our Young Master is naturally kind so he had brought her back. Who would have thought that she would turn out to be two-faced and wanted to bcome his wife! However, the elders of the Underworld refused to allow an unknown woman to become our Young Madam so they kicked her out of the Underworld. Besides, our Young Master didn't like her at all!"

    The crowd fell silent and sighed incessantly but no one spoke at all.

    Only the little fellow who was lying by Gu Ruoyun's feet slowly lifted its head. An angry light flashed in its eyes as it looked at the Left Protector.

    "When she saw that her attempts in seducing the Young Master had failed, she was unwilling to leave empty-handed so she took advantage of the Young Master's absence and stole the spiritual beast egg and has gone into hiding ever since! Everyone, you now know how the spiritual beast egg had been stolen by her. I had recognized her here and recognized the spiritual beast in her possession but due to circumstances, I had to silently endure it for the sake of this contest!"
