The Fierce Illegitimate Miss - Chapter 167
Translator: NovelMultiverse | Editor: NovelMultiverse
The winter sun generously fell on the tall and towering city gate, and it also shone on the crowd under the city gate, bringing a little warmth to those who had not forgotten to watch the commotion in these cold winters.
Yes, right here, in broad daylight, an extremely exciting commotion was taking place.
A few feet away from the ground, a sturdy man was hung in the air with his hands tied up with twine, kicking his feet in vain, but he couldn’t find any way out.
Even though the crowd on the ground raised their heads as far up as possible, they couldn’t see clearly the appearance of the person hanging in the sky. They only saw the black chest and the big beard on his face.
That’s right, the man who hung up on the tower to show the public was the once-powerful Yan Huzi.
But he was not the focus of everyone’s eyes. More people were looking at the woman in the black robe sitting on the tower.
The cold wind was violent, and the woman’s robe was tumbling like a cloud, and her long hair was fluttering in the wind, making her look like a fallen angel, even though they couldn’t see her appearance clearly. But this manner alone had already surpassed all the women in the world.
At the moment she was sitting on the high city wall. Her slender body seemed to be blown away by a gust of wind, but she was still fearless, playing with a dagger in her hand. Under the sunlight, light burst out of the knife dazzlingly.
Yu Linglong lowered her head and glanced at Yan Huzi who was hanging in the air, writhing like a fat bug, and couldn’t help but smile.
Stretching out her embroidered shoes, Yu Linglong kicked him in the head, and said with a smile: “How about it, isn’t this place nice?”
Yan Huzi had no footing in mid-air and was kicked lightly by Yu Linglong, and his body swayed so much that it seemed that it might fall off at any time.
The wind on the heights made him almost unable to open his eyes. How could he still appreciate the scenery? Hearing Yu Linglong’s ridicule, Yan Huzi said angrily: “Fuck your mother! If you have the guts, just give it to me straight!”
The words in his mouth were quite hard, but he exposed his inner timidity by subconsciously gripping on the rope.
At such a high place, you would be joking if you said you weren’t afraid!
When Yu Linglong heard his clamor, she smiled so clearly that her eyes were like two clear pools, with a deep chill in her heart: “What do you mean? That’s no fun!”
Before Yan Huzi’s reached hit the ground, he heard a bang above his head. It was not loud, but when it was in his ears, he was so scared his heartbeat almost stopped.
Even the person who was least afraid of death would involuntarily arouse a strong desire for life at the moment of death. The same was true for Yan Huzi. Where did the sound just come from?
He raised his head laboriously and looked at the rope above his head, and saw Yu Linglong playing with a dagger in her hand, looking down at him with a smile, but the thick hemp rope tied him was cut. The neat rope fluttered in the wind, making him shudder.
What tricks was this woman playing?
Seeing Yan Huzi looking up at her, Yu Linglong smiled more brilliantly.
“Soon, you will know if it’s fun or not.”
Yan Huzi quickly understood Yu Linglong’s meaning and saw that small white porcelain-like hand seemed to be twisting into a flower, holding the cold dagger. Little by little, she cut the rope in her hand.
The hemp rope broke a bit, then expanded to another strand, and soon, another length of rope broke with a bang.
Yu Linglong was slowly cutting the rope while watching Yan Huzi’s increasingly frightened face. His eyes reflected the blue sky. Yu Linglong could almost see his pupils gradually dilating.
Yu Linglong still had a nonchalant expression on her face, and with a casual wave of her little hand, another rope broke.
Seeing that the thick twine became thinner and thinner, Yan Huzi’s heart had already reached his throat.
With every piece of rope cut, he thought he was about to fall from the high tower in the next moment, but every time he closed his eyes in horror, he found that the most terrible thing had not happened, and then, in the next moment, the twine was about to break again.
This kind of repeated mental torture almost had him on the verge of collapse. He didn’t dare to struggle any more, or could no longer struggle at all, because his muscles were so tense out of fear, and he almost felt that his calf had cramped.
As time went on, he couldn’t help but begin to imagine what the consequences would be if he fell from the tens of meters of the tower.
He would be unrecognizable, with a cracked skull, smears of blood, broken bones, and broken muscles…
One after another horrible words popped out of his mind uncontrollably, describing in detail the tragic situation after his death. No matter how brave Yan Huzi was, he couldn’t help shivering.
At this moment, he deeply realized that everything in this world was so insignificant compared to life, and even if he kept the position of the boss of Tianshan Hall, what else could he enjoy??
Seeing Yu Linglong’s dagger swing over the few remaining ropes again, Yan Huzi finally shouted, “Enough!”
Yu Linglong stopped the movement in her hand, looking at him with beautiful black onyx eyes, with a bit of surprise, as if she was wondering why he yelled to stop.
Yan Huzi said tremblingly: “Uh, little lady, I know that I am wrong, so you can spare my life.”
Yu Linglong tilted her head slightly, with a peach blossom-like little face that seemed to be smiling. She whispered, “What are you talking about? I can’t hear you.”
Seeing that the dagger in Yu Linglong’s hand was getting closer to the rope again, Yan Huzi swept away, and yelled: “I admit defeat! Tianshan Hall belongs to you! From now on, you will be the boss of Tianshan Hall!”
This shout exhausted all his strength, and the crowd underneath heard clearly, and suddenly there was a burst of exclamation.
Who could have imagined that the man hanging on the top of the tower was actually Yan Huzi, the tyrant of the capital and the boss of Tiansha Hall?
Yan Huzi knew his identity, and everyone couldn’t help but be even more curious about the mysterious woman in black on top of him. What was the background of this woman that could make Yan Huzi surrender?[Read this novel and other amazing translated novels from the original source at the “Novel Multiverse dot com” website @ novelmultiverse.com]
Yu Linglong looked down at Yan Huzi’s broken face, and a bright smile appeared on her pretty face.
“Aren’t you afraid of death?”
People who have never experienced death will never know the fear before death. From the beginning, Yu Linglong didn’t intend to kill Yan Huzi. However, Yan Huzi was too arrogant, and if she didn’t let him meet death, he wouldn’t know how bad it was.
The thin rope above his head made a snapping sound, and it seemed that it might break anytime and anywhere. Yan Huzi was so scared that he was incoherent, and said repeatedly: “Save, save me, I will agree to whatever you say, please spare my life!”
But Yu Linglong didn’t seem to be in a hurry, so she said in a leisurely manner: “Since you are no longer the boss of Tianshan Hall, why should you make a deal with me?”
Yan Huzi was speechless.
Yu Linglong shook her head regretfully, and said softly, “It’s a pity that you promised too late.”
The little white hand flashed in the sun. Yan Huzi only heard a swishing from above his head, and his whole body fell straight down!
He could not hear the thunderous exclamations of the crowd below, could not see the brilliant sunlight in the sky. He only heard the whistling wind in his ears and the fast approaching hard ground in his eyes.
Was he going to die? This time, was he really going to die?
The feeling at this moment was full of fear of death. His brain was very clear, and he quickly recalled all the past events, and the most he thought about was not the Tianshan Hall he worked so hard for half a lifetime to create, but the family members who he seldom took care of, his gentle and considerate wife, and the children who laugh around his knees…
It turned out that the most important thing in his life was not Tianshan Hall?
It was a pity that he only realized this just before he died.
Seeing that he was about to hit the ground, he closed his eyes subconsciously. But what was waiting for him was not the terrifying sound of the skull cracking.
There was a sudden burst of strength from his wrist, which stopped him abruptly about three feet away from the ground. Although he was pulled in pain, he was soberly aware that he was not dead, he was still alive!
The younger brothers of the Tiansha Hall rushed up, untied the rope on his wrist, and cried out: “Boss, Boss! How are you?”
But he didn’t seem to hear other people’s voices at all and didn’t have any reaction. He just sat on the ground blankly, looking forward with blank eyes, and for a long time, he suddenly burst into violent laughter.
An unprecedented ecstasy flooded into his heart. This feeling was the feeling of walking through the gates of hell. This feeling was the feeling of regaining a new life. From then on, his life will be different.
With a tattered rope on his body, Yan Huzi jumped up from the ground, rushed out of the crowd, and ran straight into the city.
The onlookers talked a lot, and they were sure to make an assertion: “This person must be crazy!”
Hearing their comments, Yan Huzi didn’t care at all. Did they say he was crazy? No, from now on, he knew what the meaning of life was and what was his most precious thing!
They saw the crazy figure of Yan Huzi rushing away. The lucky man raised his head and looked towards the city wall, he found that the woman in the black robe had disappeared.
Yu Linglong slowly walked down the tower, calmly as if nothing happened just now.
She was not a person who kills innocent people indiscriminately. What she wanted was only Tianshan Hall. Although Yan Huzi brought someone to smash her Ruyi Gambling House, he was not guilty of death.
So she played a little trick and left a hidden buckle on the rope. Once it was cut, Yan Huzi would fall off, but at the last moment, he would be pulled by the thinnest but toughest rope.
After going through this critical moment of life and death, Yan Huzi’s courage would probably be scared even if he was not scared.
She did not see that, outside the crowd downstairs, a handsome man riding a black horse and wearing a black robe stood far away, looking at her all the time.
A faint smile appeared on Lord Xu’s face until he saw her jumping off the wall lightly.
This little woman really knew how to play.
It was the New Year in a blink of an eye. This was the first time Yu Linglong spent the New Year together with the royals. Needless to say, wearing a dress and heavy jewelry every day was also a tedious task.
This day it was Princess Pingyang’s turn to entertain everyone again. With their affairs last time, Yu Linglong was reluctant to go to Pingyang Princess Mansion, and although she was accompanied by Lord Xu, she was still unwilling to go.
Seeing her lazy appearance early in the morning, Lord Xu knew what she was thinking. He walked to the dressing table and looked at the drowsy woman, and he couldn’t help but smile.
Yu Linglong had always been a straightforward person, and this was the first time he has seen her delaying time.
While petting her head, Lord Xu smiled and said: “If you don’t want to go, you don’t have to. Take a good rest at home, and I will be back soon.”
Yu Linglong slapped down the jade comb in her hand, glared at Lord Xu in the bronze mirror, and said, “Why wouldn’t I go? Your good elder sister stays idle every day, so she thinks about giving away mistresses to other people’s homes. Yes, this time you can go in person, and she will probably arrange a large group of women to pounce on you!”
“Mistresses?” Hearing this fresh vocabulary, Lord Xu couldn’t help laughing. “You don’t trust me that much?”
Yu Linglong held the ends of her hair in her hands and looked back at him.
Because he was attending the banquet, today Lord Xu wore a black brocade robe with a dragon pattern on his head and a white gold crown with swallow wings, which made his face like a crown jade and graceful. The corners of his mouth had a handsome smile at the moment which made her almost immersed in it.
Yu Linglong sighed deeply. What was the use of marrying a handsome husband?
Turning back angrily, Yu Linglong combed her long hair fiercely, and said angrily: “It’s not that I don’t trust you, I don’t trust those women!”
Even she herself did not expect that she would have such a day, fearing for a man.
Seeing her being jealous before leaving the house, Lord Xu felt soft. He practically grabbed the comb from her hand and started combing her long hair with his own hands.
“Silly girl. If you are there, who else can grab me? Even a vixen is useless.”
Yu Linglong was amused by his words. Her little finger was slightly tilted up, and she pointed to Lord Xu in the mirror and smiled: “I will remember what you said.”
Passing the jade comb to the Xuan Cao behind him, Lord Xu smiled and said, “Well, I never go back on my word.”[Read this novel and other amazing translated novels from the original source at the “Novel Multiverse dot com” website @ novelmultiverse.com]
