Chapter 178: The Assassin from the Dark Yin Palace (2)

    Chapter 178: The Assassin from the Dark Yin Palace (2)

    Yunyao's form flashed as she charged directly into the formation. It had not even been ten minutes when she emerged, lugging a man dressed in blood-red clothing along with her. She unceremoniously threw him before Gu Ruoyun's feet.

    "Just one?"

    Wei Yiyi froze for a moment and turned a flabbergasted gaze on Gu Ruoyun.

    From the start, Yunyao had a sweet, shallow smile on her face. She easily replied to Wei Yiyi's comment by saying: "Didn't you want to interrogate them? One person's enough. As for the rest, I killed them all."


    Everyone sucked in a breath. Where had this woman come from? She had charged right in and right back out of that formation, all in one piece! The enemies inside were all slain by her hand, and she had even brought one back with her alive for interrogation purposes!

    Most importantly, she had done everything within ten minutes!

    When did Eldest Miss draw an expert like that to her side?

    "The Dark Yin Palace?"

    After seeing the mark on the assassin's body, Gu Ruoyun's expression immediately turned cloudy.

    The Dark Yin Palace was different. When others carried out assassinations, they would conceal their identities with the utmost caution. However, the assassins of the Dark Yin Palace didn't do so. It was exactly the opposite: they would wear uniforms marked with their organisation's crest, and on top of that, they would even send declarations before the assassination, ensuring the target knew with certainty that the deed would be done by their Dark Yin Palace.

    Actually, it was likely that these people hadn't come here to kill her; they had merely come to deliver the declaration.

    They hadn't expected to step into a formation and end up dead.

    "Hmph!" The man in blood-red clothing harrumphed and said: "I didn't think that our Dark Yin Palace would end up failing our mission this time! However, Gu Ruoyun, our Dark Yin Palace is out for your life. You're not going to live for much longer, hahaha!"

    The man laughed when he saw Gu Ruoyun's expression shift. With his occupation, of course he loved to see the frightened expressions of others.

    However, he didn't know that, rather than out of fear, Gu Ruoyun's expression had changed because of the evildoer Zuo Shangchen.

    She knew that Zuo Shangchen was the young master of the Dark Yin Palace. That fellow had actually sent people to assassinate her?

    "Shifu, watch out!"

    Suddenly, Wei Yiyi's face abruptly changed when she saw that the man had tossed a venomous bug towards Gu Ruoyun's face. Unfortunately, Gu Ruoyun was still deep in her thoughts and wasn't able to recover her senses in time...


    It was at this moment that a loud shout came from behind Gu Ruoyun. Miraculously, the venomous bug that had been about to attack her suddenly reversed its course and bit the neck of its master instead.


    The man screamed his lungs out, and before everyone's eyes, his flesh began to peel off bit by bit, until he was just a puddle of pus and blood...


    With a loud roar, Yunyao instantly changed into an enormous white tiger under the gazes of the crowd and ducked into a corner with a crash. Her whole body started trembling in fright as she stared at the man standing behind Gu Ruoyun.

    Everyone gaped. That elegant and noble lady was actually a spiritual beast? And why did she become a little scaredy cat all of a sudden...


    Spiritual beast? In human form?


    The crowd sucked in their breaths again and cast their stupefied gazes at Gu Ruoyun.

    Their master was the coolest. Even a spiritual beast that could take on human form was obeying her commands. Who else in this world had that kind of ability other than their master?

    Could Gu Panpan do that? Could Shiyun do that?

    Although Shiyun had great natural talent, she couldn't match up to their master in aspects such as these...

    "Xiao Ye, why have you come?"

    Gu Ruoyun stared at Qianbei Ye with some astonishment. Actually, even if Qianbei Ye hadn't acted just now, that man in blood-red clothing wouldn't have been able to succeed in his ploy anyway.
