Chen Wangfei's fighting prowess grew even more famous and young cultivators idolized Baili Hongzhuang even more.
On the contrary, General Dai's household grew even more gloomy.
Originally they thought that it was impossible for them to lose the duel. But now, not only did Dai Zhiman lose, but also lost completely. 。
Meanwhile, the centre of this was very calm. For her, defeating Dai Zhiman wasn't anything special.
Returning inside the house, Baili Hongzhuang handed Baishi to Little Black and Little White to babysit before beginning to cultivate like always.
Soon she'll be attending Azure Water School, a school famous for it's strength. It would be filled with strong people, so she needed to break through as soon as possible.
Night slowly descended, covering the imperial city in a layer of darkness, quiet and serene.
In the middle of cultivating, Baili Hongzhuang suddenly opened her eyes, sharply staring at the roof above her. Somebody was there!
"Master, someone came." At the same time, Little Black cried out, "It's not a good person!"
Baili Hongzhaung nodded faintly. Sneaking on her roof this late at night, who else could it be but an assassin?
Could it be that Dai Tianxiong acted fast and already sent for somebody to dispose of her?!
"Let’s go and see." Baili Hongzhuang's face was heavy, her voice cold.
If it really was Dai Tianxiong, then she could only say that he really wasn't afraid of death!
Little Black and Little White hopped on Baili Hongzhuang's shouler, following her outside the room.
"Since you came, show yourself! There's no need to hide!"
Her cold, clear voice seemed to be indifferenta and arrogant. It wasn't the slightest bit nervous from the assassin's appearence.
On the roof, Qiao Ming's face was astonished when he heard Baili Hongzhuang call for him. That woman's bearings really weren't simple.
At first he heistated when he found that the target was actually Chen Wangfei, but the reward was simply too rich for him to refuse.
After he kills Baili Hongzhuang, he'll leave the Imperial City!
After a few moments, he got off the roof and appeared in front of Baili Hongzhuang.
Baili Hongzhuang examined the sneakily garbed man. His cultivation was actually at Mysterious Eon late stage!
"Who sent you?" Baili Hongzhuang's beautiful face was covered with frost, her voice piercingly cold.
Qiao Ming sneered, "I am only responsible for killing you. As for who sent me, I'm afraid that you won't ever know in this lifetime!"
His voice fell. Qiao Ming struck first!
He was in a heavily guarded Prince's Palace. He needed to get the job done quickly, or else it'd be hard to escape once all the guards come.
Baili Hongzhuang quickly unsheathed the blue ice sword and clashed with Qiao Ming!
Ding! Ding! Ding!
The sounds of metals colliding were endless. Qiao Ming was filled with shock.
This woman's cultivation was only at the early stage of Mysterious Eon, so how could she still be capable to fight against him?
He could clearly sense that this woman was far weaker than him in both strength and power. She was fighting him with exquisite swordplay and will alone!
She was only a 15-year-old girl. How could her combat experience be so rich?
Qiao Ming was astounded. He couldn't believe what was happening before him!
The palace's guards heard the sounds and immediately ran over, suddenly surrounding Baili Hongzhuang and Qiao Ming.
The housekeeper was filled with fear. He didn't expect for the other party to be so bold and dare to try to assassinate Wangfei at Chen palace!
If the Wangfei met with an unexpected accident, they would all be buried in the line of duty!
"What are you waiting for? Quickly, capture that assassin!"
Qiao Ming's face suddenly changed. Even now he still didn't know how Baili Hongzhuang found him. From that step, all of his plans had already been ruined!
Baili Hongzhuang looked at the housekeeper and guards standing not so far away and raised her hand, "It's not important, I can deal with it myself!"
Hearing her words, the body guards sluggishly moved out of the way. Wangfei wanted to deal with the assassins herself?
Qiao Ming was losing his composure too. Never had he expected the bodyguards to move so fast or, even more inconceivably, that Baili Hongzhuang would be able to match him in combat for so long.
Baili Hongzhuang clearly understood her own strength and so she fought with all of her power. Otherwise, there wouldn't be much benefit to fighting with Qiao Ming.
She took out a bag of poison from her bosom and directly threw some at Qiao Ming.
Under such a situation, there was already no point continuing to fight.
She cared for not Qiao Ming, but the person behind Qiao Ming!
Qiao Ming didn't expect for Baili Hongzhuang to suddenly throw poison at him. When he finally reacted and covered his nose and mouth, it was too late. The spirit power in his body disappeared, changing him into an ordinary person!
Baili Hongzhuang held the sword's edge at Qiao Ming's neck, "Tell me who sent you!"
Qiao Ming looked at Baili Hongzhuang, his face stubborn, "I won't tell you!" "
"Even if you don't tell me, I have my own methods!" Baili Hongzhuang's eyes glinted coldly. As a famous doctor and a poison expert, she was best at extorting confessions!
Baili Hongzhuang turned to the housekeeper and spoke, "It's alright, you can go now. Don't let anyone know what happened today!"
Everyone knew that their Wangfei was powerful and left one after another. Wangfei was strong enough to handle it herself.
Baili Hongzhuang bound Qiao Ming to the door. "I'll give you one last chance to avoid suffering! Speak, who sent you!"
"Give up, I won't tell you anything!"
He admitted that this was the first time he was caught, but he was a killer for many, many years. Never saying their employer's names was the way to survive.
Hearing Qiao Ming's reply, Baili Hongzhaung wasn't surprised. Directly pinching Qiao Ming's chin, she forced a pill down his throat.
"What did you make me eat?" Qiao Ming asked in alarm.
"Something that will let you obediently tell the truth." Baili Hongzhuang's voice was cold, "After you think for a bit, call me."
Done speaking, Baili Hongzhuang ignored Qiao Ming's surprise and returned to the bed to cultivate.
A little assassin wasn't worth wasting so much of her time on.
Qiao Ming just thought that Baili Hongzhuang was deliberately trying to make it sound mysterious. At most, it'd only be poison. There was no way he'd reveal his employer just because of this!
But before long, Qiao Ming's expression changed. Piercing pains burst in his heart, twisting his face!
"What's happening!" Qiao Ming's face was terrified. What was that pill? How could he have never heard about it before?
Cold sweat dripped down Qiao Ming's forehead. The unbearable pain was almost enough to make him collapse!
Little Black and Little White looked at Qiao Ming proudly. Their Master's methods were in no way comparable to an ordinary person's!
Qiao Ming couldn't help but scream. The pain grew more and more intense as if 10,000 maggots were chewing at his heart. It was a pain worse than death.
Baili Hognzhaung's face didn't change, continuing to cultivate calmly.
"I'll talk!" Qiao Ming's willpower finally crumbled in front of the torturous pain, "I'll talk, I'll talk!"
But Baili Hongzhuang didn't seem to hear him speak…
