Ghost King’s Medical Consort - Chapter 40
Mu Qianyue let out a light snort. Not only did she not dodge, she even went up to face the attack head on. In the blink of an eye, both of them engaged in battle once again. However, this time, Mu Qianyue was the one in the disadvantageous position. Although it seemed like she was in danger, she kept on finding holes in his attacks, avoiding the killing blows.
On the stage, the young lady dressed in a light purple dress seemed to dance about like a fluttering butterfly. Her movements were extremely light and her sword techniques were also agile and amazing, giving forth an extraordinary feeling.
Everyone gasped in surprise. If they had been astonished by Mu Qianyue’s victory earlier, then their feelings right now could only be described as admiration.
A ninth-stage True Cultivator was able to exchange close to 100 moves with a first-stage Spirit Cultivator yet was not losing!
Right at this moment, the sharp sword edge brushed past Mu Qianyue’s wrist. It turned suddenly and pierced towards Mu Qianyue’s heart!
The wind was sharp as a blade, aiming to end her life in one fatal blow.
Mu Qianyue suddenly smiled at Nalan Yu, who was moving in closer toward her.
This was the moment that she had been waiting for.
Her body deftly dodged the attack, bending her body into an extremely strange posture, before suddenly appearing behind Nalan Yu in a flash. Her sword glow suddenly surged, and with a swoosh, she drew a fan-shaped arch of light, dazzling the scene. Amidst the brilliance of the light, a beam of white that was impossible to see with the naked eye gushed out like a rush of flowing water. A cold gleam flashed and with a swoosh, shot out towards his back!
It was like a great lightning had suddenly appeared above the heavens, instantly penetrating through every part of the world.
Nalan Yu noticed the cold killing intent that appeared behind him and anxiously retreated. However, it was still too late. A crisp ‘kacha’ sound exploded and the sharp white glow pierced through his shoulder blade. Red hot blood spewed out from his back, instantly dyeing the jade-green ground a crimson red. It was like many beautiful flowers of blood had bloomed in that instant.
Staggering forward, he collapsed to the ground with a crash. The bright silvery sword edge that was white as snow came lunging at his throat. At this instant, he felt the aura of death coming straight at him!
The surroundings were deathly silent. Everyone felt as if they’d be able to hear the sound of swallowing their own saliva.
Somehow, this trash had turned the tables around!
A first-stage Spirit Cultivator was defeated by her!
Everyone looked at Mu Qianyue with stunned expressions. Amidst the brilliant glow, the young lady’s long hair fluttered with her clothes. Her chin was raised slightly, her lips curled up into a perfect arch while her pitch-black pupils had a hint of sneer as she looked around. The expression on her face in that short moment was even more dazzling than the sun.
Those people who had mocked her in the past couldn’t help but shrink their necks back. It was eerily quiet.
“Consort Jing wins!” The referee only reacted after a short pause, announcing the results with a stunned expression.
“My dear, you’re so amazing!” A white figure charged up onto the stage and hugged Mu Qianyue’s slender waist in excitement. His handsome and charming face revealed an intoxicating smile.
Mu Qianyue’s lips twitched unnaturally to be embraced by Nalan Jing in front of so many people. She pushed him away gently. “Many people are watching.”
“I don’t care. You are my wife. They can’t snatch you away from me, right?” Nalan Yu’s lips curled up in disdain, an ink-like glow of darkness flashing past in his lowered purple eyes as he threw a disdainful glance toward Nalan Yu. The always-arrogant man was now lying on the ground on his stomach in a pathetic state.
Their gazes met in mid-air and a strange glow flashed past their eyes.
Suddenly, Nalan Yu stood up crazily, his expression savage and furious. “Mu Qianyue, you damned b*tch! I have outstanding aptitude and great talent, yet you deliberately pretended to be a fool and acted like a weakling in front of me. Did you do it to attract my attention? That’s right, you’ve successfully attracted my attention, but the damned Ghost King has now destroyed my entire life!”
Oh my god!
To think that the rumor that had been spreading in the Phoenix Shadow City a few days ago turned out to be true!
When this great news came out, everyone was stunned speechless. Nalan Zheng especially, was dumbfounded, unable to return to his senses. The son that he valued the greatest, the Phoenix Shadow Nation’s Crown Prince, had really been rendered impotent?
Indeed he had his suspicions about the rumor that had suddenly appeared in the Phoenix Shadow City previously, and had also looked for doctors to treat Nalan Yu. However, there weren’t any abnormalities…
However, after hearing the news right from Nalan Yu’s mouth, Nalan Zheng immediately understood. Nalan Yu had probably bribed that doctor who had treated him and hidden this fact!
At the thought of this, flames of fury seethed in Nalan Zheng’s eyes.
“Haha… I didn’t expect to be able to see such an amazing performance on this trip to the Phoenix Shadow Nation. Phoenix Shadow Emperor, how will your nation’s Crown Prince be able to have descendants in the future when he is impotent? Do you need our help for that?” Southern Moon Nation’s envoy laughed. Not only was Nalan Jie put through a great humiliation in public during the competition, it was followed by the Crown Prince Nalan Yu losing. If that wasn’t humiliating enough, he even exposed his secret of being impotent. Tsk tsk, the Phoenix Sharon Nation was really messed up!
“We don’t mind helping your Crown Prince to have descendants either.” Sky Ocean Nation’s envoy also joined in and jeered mockingly.
“Yu’er, do you know what you’re saying? Have you gone into mental derangement from your cultivation?” Nalan Zheng exploded in fury, having injected a strong hidden force and pressure in this bellow. However, this wasn’t able to wake Nalan Yu up. Instead, it caused him to let out an even greater roar of anger.
“You damned old man! Who are you to talk to me like this?! You hog over the throne and refuse to pass it down to me! One day, I’ll become the greatest person of the Phoenix Shadow Nation! The only one worthy of being the Emperor is me!”
“The Crown Prince has gone crazy! Take him away!” Nalan Zheng’s countenance looked extremely grim, thunderous and as black as the bottom of a pot. His body trembled uncontrollably. “The competition will end here today. The rest will be held in three days.”
After saying that, he stormed off without turning back.
Now that such a big matter had been exposed and blown up, how could Nalan Zheng possibly have the face to continue staying here? The royal family’s reputation was all torn to shreds!
The competition was meant to end today, but the other nations’ envoys were all in a good mood and thus didn’t pursue this matter.
Only then did Nalan Yu, who was on the stage, slowly regain his consciousness. When he saw everyone’s mocking and contemptuous gazes, he then recalled what had taken place earlier. He was overwhelmed with shock and a shudder crept down his spine. What… What did he say just now?
It was over! His life was all over! Completely over!
Everyone continued to be immersed in the unexpected happenings, unable to regain their senses even after a very long time.
“Dear, let’s go back.” The young man held Mu Qianyue’s hand tightly, his lips curling up slightly and revealing a handsome and winning smile.
“Alright, let’s go home.” Mu Qianyue smiled lightly. Somehow, she had unknowingly regarded the Prince Jing Manor as her home.
Mu Qianyue didn’t take part in the competition that was held three days later. After all, who didn’t know that she had challenged ten of the top contenders single-handedly the other day and was undoubtedly the top ranked person in this competition? The rest of the competition was just to determine the other people’s rankings.
On this day, after Mu Qianyue had her dinner and was planning to head to rest, Nalan Zheng sent someone to give the order that the Emperor wanted to meet her and reward her.
Reward her? Surely this was just a cover, right?
It didn’t take much thinking to know that Nalan Zheng must be feeling wary about the aptitude she had displayed, wanting to take her in for his use. If she refused to submit, what that awaited her might possibly be an assassination.
A bloodthirsty gleam flashed past Mu Qianyue’s slightly narrowed eyes. How interesting.
“Dear, I will go with you!” Nalan Jing held onto her hand tightly, the depths of his eyes revealing a trace of concern.
