Chapter 87: Yan Lie’s Madness
“More than the ‘angling for fame’, didn’t you hear what Yan Lie had just said? In order to get a loyal subordinate, Gong Qianxue had his whole family killed, maimed and sold him to Ghost City. This behavior is simply deranged.”
“This kind of person is actually called Yanwu Continent’s number one genius, even listed top on the Official Rankings. Really too shameless!”
On Yan Lie’s side, he is falling apart almost completely mad after finding out that Gong Qianxue had really abandoned him.
“No!! Impossible!! Qianxue can’t do this to me! Don’t you lie to me! I won’t believe you!” Yan Lie raves hysterically, “Qianxue is the best girl in the whole world, she’s the only one who appeared to save me when I was in my most desperate and helpless time!”
Muyan stops moving her hands on the strings, and the sound blade attacks also stop.
Yan Lie could clearly see the pity and ridicule in her eyes. “Oh, that’s right, there’s one more thing thing that you probably don’t know yet? Back when you were betrayed in that mercenary group and was almost put to death, the one who betrayed you… it was Gong Qianxue who bribed him to do it. I think you yourself must be very clear of the reason, it was just like what you’re doing with Yan Haotian… exactly the same.”
Yan Lie’s eyes snaps wide open and extreme panic appears in the depths of his eyes. Immediately afterwards, he frantically throws himself towards Muyan, “Bitch, don’t you lie to me!! You dare vilify Qianxue, I’ll kill you…”
Muyan easily and relaxedly avoids, leisurely continues talking, “If I remember correctly, the person who betrayed you, wasn’t he your sworn brother? Before you killed him to avenge yourself, didn’t he divulge anything to you? Whether or not Gong Qianxue really did it in the end, I think you yourself understand it more than anyone else, right?”
Yan Lie suddenly stops in his actions. Images unintentionally appearing in his mind, turning the anger on his face all into terror.
Some things are simply like this. One wouldn’t suspect anything as long as no one raises the topic.
Once Muyan pierces through everything, he finds that there are flaws everywhere in everything that Gong Qianxue did.
“Impossible! Impossible! Impossible…” Yan Lie crumples to the ground as he clutches his head. He makes an angry and desperate shout, “Gong Qianxue, why, why have you done this to me?”
There is no trace of warmth in Muyan’s eyes, derisively laughing as she flourishes her hands on the zither.
Instead of striking Yan Lie, the sound blade falls on the iron cage that’s holding Yan Haotian.
With the clunking and creaking of iron, the cage breaks into two. Yan Haotian snarls and suddenly comes out of his cage.
“Ah-!” the beast-slave getting freed causes everyone in the Beast Fighting Colosseum to cry out in alarm.
Muyan simply says calmly: “Miss Ru Yan, this beast-slave should be mine now, I presume?”
As she says that, she tosses a porcelain bottle to Ru Yan.
Ru Yan catches the porcelain bottle. One sniff and she determines that it is the heaven-defying draught that could make people break through bottlenecks. At once, she smilingly replies: “Precisely as the guest says, this Beast-slave No.3 now belongs to you.”
Yan Haotian has bloodshot eyes, taking one step after another towards Yan Lie.
As he passes by Muyan, his steps halt.
Muyan says indifferently: “I promised that as long as you follow me, you will be able to redress your Blood Sea Vendetta. This person is now yours to deal with.”
Yan Haotian turns to face Muyan, falls to his knees and knocks his head on the ground a few times. He then pounces at Yan Lie’s direction.
The mind-piercing and blood-curdling wails, as well as indignant and mournful roars resonates throughout the entire Beast Fighting Colosseum.
