1611 Betrayal 9

    "Lord Murong, let someone else try the medicine, I..."

    Long Xin's voice was shaking and even his intonation was quivering.

    Before he could finish his sentence, he caught the look that Murong Xiao sent towards him and trembled all over. His expression drained of color and he inched his footsteps towards the crowd, afraid that he would be the first to try the pill.

    The crowd came to a sudden realization when they saw Long Xin's reaction.

    It looks like even Elder Long Xin was uncertain if this pill could be safe to consume! He had previously spoken with such great confidence that no one expected the truth to be unmasked and exposed so soon.

    Murong Xiao scoffed and he turned his gloomy and eerie eyes towards Gu Ruoyun.

    "You are a physician so can you determine the problem then? Since you claim that it's not a curse, you must know what's going on."

    Murong Xiao saw that the situation could not be fixed and threw the question back at Gu Ruoyun.

    Gu Ruoyun gently stroked her chin, "I do indeed know the situation more than you and have identified one problem."

    Murong Xiao's expression looked even more unsightly upon hearing the woman's confident voice. "What do you think is the cause of the Dragon Clan's reproductive problems then?"

    "The problem does not lie within the Dragon Clan nor is it caused by their environment." Gu Ruoyun calmly raised the corners of her lips before she pointed at the large purple dragon's body which was lying on the altar. "The real problem lies with the Dragon King's body."

    The Dragon King had informed Gu Ruoyun through soul telepathy that while he was alive, the Dragon Clan's birth rate was the same as humans. It was after his death that such a change had occurred within the Dragon Clan.

    Hence, the greatest possibility was here...


    Murong Xiao burst into laughter and replied disdainfully, "A corpse? You're actually claiming that the Dragon Clan's reproductive difficulties are caused by this corpse? Do you think of us as three-year-old children who can be fooled by your explanation?"

    Suddenly, Long Xin seemed to remember something and he spoke passionately.

    "I know that Gu Ruoyun covets the Dragon King's body so she must want to use this method to obtain it. If the Dragon Clan believes that the problem lies with the Dragon King's presence, she can then take this physical body away and not return it to us!"

    He turned his fierce glare towards Gu Ruoyun at the thought of this, "Gu Ruoyun, you are certainly despicable and shameless, a scum of mankind!"

    Long Xin's accusations did not anger Gu Ruoyun but it did infuriate Qianbei Ye.

    Suddenly, Long Xin was attacked by an eerie yet terrifying power. It crushed him like a gigantic mountain until it was difficult for him to even breathe. A strong hand seemed to be grabbing his neck, making it hard for him to gasp for breath.

    He assumed that this power had come from Murong Xian so he did not dare to say another word...

    Qianbei Ye's gloomy eyes looked at Long Xin who had lowered his head. The corners of his lips were curled into a bloodthirsty murderous intent and the aura from his body did not diminish. Instead, it increased and crushed Long Xin so strongly that he could not say another word...

    Gu Ruoyun ignored Long Xin and calmly replied, "This corpse has lingered in the Dragon Clan for far too long. Even if it was taken away now, it would be useless!"

    "Hmph!" Murong Xiao scoffed coldly, "How are you going to prove the truth in your words?"

    As Murong Xiao was speaking, Gu Ruoyun slowly approached the corpse on the altar. Her eyes carried a somber air and ignored the skeptical stares around her...For some reason, the author seems to rotating between the names  (translated as Murong Xiao) and  (Murong Fu). I've standardised the name to *Murong Xiao* for the sake of consistency. :)
