Chapter 194: Body Odor
At the same time, Zhao Shan, as well as people of Yan Lie’s mercenary group behind him, also makes their move.
In the blink of an eye, a sword wrapped in thick killing intent is already closing in on Gong Qianxue’s back.
However, although it’s clearly a critical moment,
Gong Qianxue’s face doesn’t have the slightest bit of panic. The grief and compassion in her eyes recede, and only a callous viciousness remains.
Her body flashes a little, and she easily avoids Yan Lie’s poisonous hidden weapon.
She raises a hand and ruthlessly strikes Yan Lie’s heart.
There’s only a pounding sound, and Yan Lie’s heart disintegrates, something bursts out of the eye holes and just like that, he’s thoroughly dead.
Almost at the same time, Gong Qianxue whips around, and with one hand, catches Zhao Shan’s neck.
Her other hand seizes Zhao Shan’s blade, and ruthlessly slashes with it.
In a split second, blood sprays out, and both of Zhao Shan’s arms are cut off.
He produces a wretched howl like a dying pig’s.
Gong Qianxue sneers, slowly standing up while holding Zhao Shan’s neck.
At this time, there are more than a dozen corpses of the Raging Inferno Mercenary Group’s members, disorderly sprawled around her.
There’s a grave and stern man dressed in black. He walks to Gong Qianxue’s side then stands there respectfully.
Gong Qianxue coldly looks at Zhao Shan, “With just your group of wastes, you think you can kill me?”
Zhao Shan’s whole body is trembling, but he still glowers at Gong Qianxue, he snarls with wheezing voice: “You… that year… you deceived the Commander… deceived the entire mercenary group, you… you’re not allowed to have a good death!”
Gong Qianxue narrows her eyes, saying: “How do you know of matters from back then? Did Jun Muyan tell you?”
Zhao Shan opens and mouth and suddenly spews out a mouthful of thick spit mixed with foamy blood, right on Gong Qianxue’s face, “You… mustn’t have a good death!!”
A cold gleam flashes through Gong Qianxue eyes. Her hand suddenly tightens, then there’s a crackling sound, and Zhao Shan’s head limply dangles down.
She throws the corpse away with disgust, and takes the handkerchief proffered by the man in black. She wipes her face and her hands, and speaks with gritted teeth: “That Jun Muyan, I had still underestimated her.”
“Princess, do you want this subordinate to send people to kill her?”
Gong Qianxue narrows her eyes and slowly says: “First, don’t be hasty. Send someone to carefully investigate her background and identity once again. I always feel that this Jun Muyan is very significant, as far as I’m concerned… she shouldn’t be killed so simply.”
Gong Qianxue glances at the members of the mercenary group on the floor, frowning: “I originally wanted to take this group of people for my own use, hmph… forget it, just a bunch of wastes. By the way, I instructed you to get in touch with a high official from Ghost City, and think of a method to have Jing Cheng’s Ghost City become part of our power, how are you handling it?”
“There are some difficulties.” the man in black mutters to himself for a moment, then he says in a low voice, “We’ve already bribed all the Magistrates of Jing Cheng’s Ghost City, but the Ghost King… anyway, the Princess should rest assured, it’s only a matter of time…”
Halfway through his words, the man in black suddenly frowns. He sniffs for a bit, then a slight change comes over his expression. He takes a step back.
Gong Qianxue sees his peculiar look, and she can’t help but knit her brows: “What’s the matter? Is it… ugh, what’s that smell? So repulsive?”
She inhales, and almost dies from the stench: “Gurgh~ where is that stench coming from?!”
The man in black covers his nose and smoothly takes another step back, hesitantly saying: “Princess, the smell seems to be coming from you.”
“What! Did! You! Say!!” a shriek that can overturn the roof resonates through the skies.
The next day, Jing Cheng Country’s Princess Gong Qianxue suddenly has body odor, a smell that can make people within three steps of her retch – this news spreads throughout the palace.
