Chapter 27: Face Changing
It’s only because Lin Sitong’s teacher is extraordinary, and her senior brother Bai Yichen is also a famous Martial Arts genius in Yanwu Continent.
Gong Qianxue considers this girl to have some value, so she sweet talks her.
Just then, a burst of muffled thunder resounds in the sky.
The whole sky suddenly seems to darken.
Even the wind within the Fog Forest becomes fierce; the dense fog thickens further, countless leaves and sand scatter around.
“Ah, Qianxue sister, ouch. I was scratched by some branches… I-I couldn’t see anything. Qianxue sister, save me!”
Gong Qianxue stands steadily amidst the fierce winds as she listens to Lin Sitong’s call. However, she’s completely disinclined to even bother. Instead she reveals a callous and disgusted expression.
“Princess, do we need not save Miss Lin?” Gong Qianxue’s guard asks.
Gong Qianxue scoffs and says, “It doesn’t matter. She dies, I’ll carry her bones to her teacher’s door then cry and mourn for the sister that I just got along with. Rather, that would be better in order to get Bai Yichen and the others’ favor. She is much more useful dead than alive!”
This gale and lightning sweep through half of the Fog Forest.
It lasted for a tea-time before it subsides.
“Qianxue sister, I feel sore!” Not far from them, Lin Sitong’s low, pained voice could be heard, “I got hit by something and it was painful. Wuu, it scratched my face. If senior brother sees it, he will definitely call me Little Ugly!”
Gong Qianxue frowns in disinterest. She is just about to pretend like a gentle sister, when she catches sight of the thing in Lin Sitong’s hand. Her pupils suddenly shrink.
That turns out to be an infant-sized golden egg.
The golden egg’s surface has a layer of dull dark-red marbling, and it emits a bright glow.
This is – an egg of a Sacred Beast!
It is also the greatest treasure that will be born in the Fog Forest.
Gong Qianxue is breathless, hardly managing to stabilize her mind before she speaks, “Sitong has a really great luck to have found the egg of the sacred beast.”
“Ah!” Lin Sitong snaps back to herself and looks at the egg in her arms. Only after discovering that the golden egg is exactly the same as the sacred beast that senior Bai Yichen had described to her, did she unwittingly become happy and say, “Ah, It’s really a sacred beast egg! I actually found the sacred beast egg. Haha, if senior brother knows of this, he definitely won’t believe it!”
Gong Qianxue slightly lowers her eyes and murmurs: “Sitong sister, didn’t you say that you really like me? Your sister really wants this sacred beast egg, how about giving it to me?”
“This…” Lin Sitong suddenly looks embarrassed, but soon disagrees. She firmly shakes her head, “I’m sorry Qianxue sister, I can’t give this sacred egg to you because I want to give it to Yichen brother.”
A strong murderous intent and spite flash through Gong Qianxue’s eyes. The gentle smile on her face completely disappears, leaving only a cold and gloomy ferociousness.
“In the end, the deep sisterly affection that you spoke of was just a lie. Hehe, since you don’t really think of me as a sister, not even willing to give the sacred beast egg to me, then don’t blame me for being impolite!”
As soon as she says that, Gong Qianxue suddenly strikes.
With her strength at Heaven Grade, few could contend with her within the entire Yanwu Continent.
Lin Sitong is but an early Profound Stage, and she doesn’t have the slightest ability to resist.
With such defense, she is knocked to the ground by one strike from Gong Qianxue, and the sacred beast egg also falls into the other’s hands.
