1. Chapter 1 The Ruthless Assassin
In life, I will protect you forever!
In death, I will accompany you to the underworld!
For the greatest love, I shall transcend time and space, just to meet you.
2014. Northern Muzhi Mountain Peak
On the edge of the cliff, YunTing Rou was dressed in white. Her whole body exudes a weak breath, as if to blend in with the night.
“You, who sits as the king of assassins, who would have thought that you will perish this way.”
She turned to look back at the woman in red who was five meters away.
Lips hooked up, voice ethereal and indistinct.
“I, Chi You, where am I less than you? On strength, on courage, on experience, on means – I’m better than you. Why is it that in the eyes of the organization, in the eyes of those assassins, I can’t match you? But now, you will die with my hands.”
Chi You’s eyes reddened, holding a XLED07 Aurora silencer gun, her body slightly trembling.
This is from excitement.
There was no change in YunTing Rou’s face, her whole body emanates indifference
A soul-stirring beauty.
“Your character is not as good as mine.”
The expression on Yun Ting Rou’s eyes was slightly tight, and her voice carried a desolate tone.
She and Chi You are both orphans, adopted by the organization at the same time, they grew up together. From the D-class task to the S+ task, they have been the best of partners.
And the only one she considers family.
But now, this affection was trampled all over by Chi You.
She, not as good as the king of the killer.
The white dress fluttered against the wind, and the dark hair danced madly with it. It was beautiful.
“Chi, you’ve said enough nonsense. Kill her, then you can get what you want.”
A lean figure with alluring lips, and charming electric eyes, appeared in front of Yun Ting Rou.
Ranked Third in the organization.
The man who used to pursue her.
She watched the two of them share a passionate kiss.
Chi You snuggled in the arms of Jue Sha, her beautifully sculpted face looked mad with laughter at the moment: “Jue, you don’t feel bad watching your favorite woman die in front of your eyes”
“Baby,you’ve always been the only one in my heart. This woman was just for passing the time whenever it’s boring.”
Jue Sha’s tender words did not set off any waves or ripples in Yun Ting Rou’s eyes.
She slightly shook her head: “Chi You, you’re not seeing the real person”
Jue Sha’s outward demeanor is very elegant, a talented man, but his heart is very dark. He would do anything to achieve personal gain.
She had seen it with her own eyes, Jue Sha had killed his adoptive father and mother, their bodies minced into paste, just because of a disagreement with the foster mother.
Chi You’s pupils shrank, and as she stared at Yun Ting Rou’s indifferent face, hate blossomed in her heart.
She turned a deaf ear to Yun Ting Rou.
“Ha ha ha ha — Yun Ting Rou, you also have a day like this. Your man now belongs to me, the position of being the top assassin now also belongs to me, and you, you go to hell.”
Pulling the trigger of the gun in her hand, several bullets shot towards Yun Ting Rou’s heart.
Yun Ting Rou closed her eyes and jumped off backwards, dropping down to the bottom of the cliff.
“Ha ha ha ha ha, you’re finally dead, you’re finally dead.”
Chi You moved two steps forward and laughed out loud.
Suddenly, she stiffened. She slowly turned her head down and stared at the sharp dagger protruding out of her chest. The blood that was pouring out looked extremely bright.
Her mouth moved and let out a terrible whimper.
Jue Sha embraced her from behind, his actions gentle like handling a priceless treasure. He slightly bowed his head and whispered in her ear: “Thank you.”
Thank you for removing Yun Ting Rou for me.
Thank you for letting me become the king of assassins.
Chi You’s eyes were wide and Yun Ting Rou’s last words echoed in her ears.
Chi You, you’re not seeing the real person.
“You…you…” Even with both hands, Chi You wasn’t able to tug Jue Sha’s sleeves as her eyes lost their light.
Jue Sha smiled coldly, and with a merciless shove with his hands, pushed Chi You forward towards the end of the cliff.
When her body was approaching the edge, a ghostly smile appeared on her face, her whole body had a sudden burst of power, and she clutched Jue Sha’s hand.
In a moment, and iron chains bound the two as she leaned backwards.
Jue Sha’s cries were devoured by the bottomless fall.
Time and space obscured, and the soul returned to another world.
Qingchuan Continent, the warm sunlight scattered in the air.
A bright light streams across the sky.
Yun Residence, in a courtyard in the northwest corner.
A little girl, about seven years of age, lies under a peach tree.
Shua! Her eyes opened.
Yun Ting Rou took in her surroundings.
Surrounded by red walls and green tiles, the courtyard is full of flowers – flowers of various colors are in full bloom, the clusters of blossoms are beautiful.
Yun Ting Rou turned her eyes and her sight was blocked by something.
Alarms immediately blared within her mind.
“Miss, you’re awake!”
The voice from her mouth was overcast, and there were no undulations. She spoke quickly, if a bit breathless, a woman of about fifty years old.
Yun Ting Rou’s brain was like a machine, it took her three seconds to analyze the person.
But she didn’t speak.
She lowered her lashes to cover the surprise in her eyes.
She should be dead.
Thinking of this, Yun Ting Rou felt pain in her head.
A lot of memories and information flashed through her mind.
It was as if the scenes were covered in mist, a package of confusion.
Her heart thumped,
These memories don’t belong to her, it belongs to a seven-year-old girl.
The continent where she lives is called Qingchuan continent.
The country where she is now is called Fengguo.
This is the owner of the body, is the Fourth Miss of Fenngou’s Prime Minister – Yun Ting Rou.
The only legitimate daughter of the residence.
The prime minister’s wife died after giving birth to her.
Even with her noble birth, she is the joke of Fenggou, famous in the capital as the “Foolish Fourth Miss.”
A thorn in the Prime Minister’s heart.
Since Yun Ting Rou’s mother was the Great General’s only daughter, the military general was quite protective of the third generation. Without exaggeration, if the great general stomps, the whole of Fenggou will tremble.
Although YunTing Rou lives in the residence, it’s no better than the life of the pigs and dogs.
However, in the eyes of others, it is a beautiful scenery.
This is naturally Shen Yiniang’s doing.
She is the legitimate daughter of the minister but her allowance does not reflect that.
Even if Shen Yiniang is in charge, the identity of Yun Ting Rou’s body should have been able to suppress her.
Shen Yiniang used her position, while taking care of her public face, to bully Yun Ting Rou in secret. Even the brothers and sisters also bully her like a dog.
Her seven-year-old body was incredibly malnourished.
Her withered frame was nothing but skin and bones.
She wrinkled her brows.
The 21st century ghostly assassin Yun Ting Rou – has crossed worlds.
“Miss, what’s wrong? Don’t you feel cold?”
The aunt was unsettled so she reached out and touched Yun Ting Rou’s forehead. She could not help but exclaim: “Oh, too cold, Dong-er, Dong-er.”
“Here, aunt, what’s wrong?”
Dong-er, a small maidservant in a green dress, immediately ran out from the inner house.
“The lady might have a high fever. Boil some hot water and prepare a bowl of ginger soup.”
“Yes yes, this slave will.”
Yun Ting Rou looked at the two without saying a word, until her aunt moved to pick her up.
Her right hand subconsciously gripped the aunt’s hand, pressing her fingers harder than expected until a ‘kacha’ sound was heard.
“Miss, what’s the matter!”
The aunt was puzzled at the strange reactions from her Miss.
Why did she hold her hand and pinch it?
YunTing Rou calmly retracted her hand, and a hint of darkness flashed in her eyes.
The habit from a 20-year career in assassination.
She is accustomed to being alone, anyone who approaches will inadvertently trigger her true nature.
