Chapter 2397 – Who Had Been Schemed? (6)
“Bitch! You demon!” Hua Qianyu shouted at Yun Qingluo in a trembling voice. He then raised his hand to hit her.
Yun Qingluo gave him a cynical smile with no intention to avoid his swipe at her. However, before he managed to hit her face, Di Fuyi interrupted them. “Let us keep her alive for now.”
Hua Qianyu’s bloodshot eyes clearly showed his anger. He was confused as to why Di Fuyi would want to keep her alive after everything she did.
Di Fuyi calmly said, “Keep an eye on her, both of you! Keep her alive!” He then raised his hand and launched a streak of seven-colored light to remove the venom that was on her chest. He then placed the poison in a small bottle and kept it in his storage bag.
Yun Qingluo’s expression changed all of a sudden, and she started laughing hysterically. “Di Fuyi, it seems that you are still reluctant to let me go!” She claimed.
Di Fuyi gave her a smug look and said, “Hmm, is that what you think? Please, proceed as you please.”
Yun Qingluo was irritated. “Kill me! Why don’t you just kill me? Even if you keep me alive, I will never tell you about the man behind all this! There’s no way that is happening!”
Di Fuyi answered her briefly, “We will see.”
He then left to check on Gu Xijiu, who was still in the array formation. Gu Xijiu needed to perform the alchemy process in a quiet environment, so Zhu Duqing made her a bamboo house at the core of the array formation. The house could block out all external sounds.
Yun Qingluo watched as he left, but anger and hatred filled her eyes. There was something more behind what she was showing them, something too complicated to explain. Both guardians, Jin and Hua, felt an unreasonable sense of fear.
“Yun Qingluo, the Devil King has always been kind to you. Don’t you feel guilty for setting him up? Tell us about the man behind the plan, and perhaps he will let you go,” Guardian Jin tried to persuade her while suppressing his anger.
Nevertheless, she laid there with her eyes closed, pretending she had not heard a thing. Without the Devil King’s order, he would have killed her already.
Hua Qianyu clenched his fists. He used to be very close to his niece. After she died, he swore to avenge the deaths of his niece and his brother. For years, he had been painstakingly trying to find the murderer, but to no avail. Never did he realize that the murderer had always been by his side. Sadly, he had even fallen for her.
Hua Qianyu wanted to slap himself for falling into her trap. “Yun Qingluo, I have been blinded! But right now, I just want to kill you!”
Yun Qingluo opened her eyes and looked at him firmly. “Do it,” she said. All of her evil plans had been thoroughly exposed. There was nothing she was afraid of anymore, so she would gladly accept her fate and hoped that Hua Qianyu would kill her right away.
Hua Qianyu did not say anything. Instead, he vented his anger on a big rock by shattering it.
“You do not dare to kill me; such a coward! You do not even have the courage to avenge the death of your loved ones. Hua Qianyu, you are nothing but a coward!” Yun Qingluo continued to agitate him.
Hua Qianyu’s face flushed with indignation, and he was ready to attack her. However, Guardian Jin quickly stopped him. “The woman seeks a quick death. Don’t grant her wish.”
Slowly, Hua Qianyu took a deep breath and was finally able to calm down. He continued to observe Yun Qingluo. Her robes were completely soaked in sweat. Perhaps, she really did suffer.
“Yun Qingluo, you have killed so many innocent lives. This is the punishment that you deserve! I will not kill you. Watching you suffer in agony is my kind of revenge.”
Yun Qingluo looked up and gave him a tight smile. She was actually very weak, with barely any strength left. Quivering, she could not even sit herself up. She did not even have the strength to end her own life.
