Chapter 1: Du Xian ER
- 毒仙儿 (Du Xian Er): Du= poison Xian=fairy Er= used to call someone close
It’s really quiet. Occasionally, sounds of beast howling and wind blowing through the grass can be heard. The moon is embedded in the dark blue sky. Under the full moon is a pool of water braved by shallow fog. In this dim white mist, a graceful figure is faintly discernible.
“Miss, I’ve found out.”
At the side of the pool, a person in dark knelt on one knee with her head bowed respectfully to express her respect for the beauty in the water.
That young woman’s voice sounded sweet like the clear spring in the mountains. In this silent night, it’s particularly pleasant.
“Five years ago, miss and Murong Xin Lian went in the palace together to visit the then guiren1 Murong Xue Lian. Miss stole the glowing pearl that the emperor gifted to Murong Xue Lian. Murong Xin Lian found out and told prime minister Murong Tai. Murong Tai punished miss with the home punishment (being beaten with a wooden stick on the back). Then he send miss to Jing Xin An……”
Hearing this, the young woman chuckled.
So it turned out that this was the reason. No wonder that when she woke up she was in a broken house at the back of a nunnery without a single person around her.
Hearing the young woman’s laughter, the person in black paused. Before she wondered why miss has let her go investigate this, but after she investigated she understood. Originally she thought her life is miserable, she didn’t expect that miss’s life is more miserable. Being beaten half to death by her biological father and thrown in the nunnery to fend for herself. It seems that being born in a rich and powerful family is not necessarily a happy thing.
Seemingly to have realized the person in black’s emotion, the young woman laughed heartily: “I’m alright, you can continue.”
“From what this subordinated investigated, the glowing pearl was actually taken by Murong Xin Lian. She let the maid at miss side Fei Cui hid it in miss’s chamber and deliberately framed miss. Now, Fei Cui has become Murong Xin Lian’s confidante and head maid.
“Oh……So it’s like that ah……Fei Cui, Murong Xin Lian……”
The young woman lifted a wisp of black hair and played with it in her hands. White fingers played like snakes with the black hair making the black hair seemed like a waterfall. Really beautiful.
“Miss, do you want?”
The person in black made a ‘kacha’ hand gesture.
This nasty pair of master and servant used such low means to frame miss. Should have killed them long ago.
In the person in black’s eyes flashed a hint of ruthlessness. Just a nod from miss, she will immediately go to xiangfu2 and kill those two bitches.
She knows the person in black’s loyalty, but she has never thought about wanting the other party’s life. After all, she is not ‘her’.
The real miss Murong, she is afraid must has already died after the twenty slaps from the wooden stick. Now she is just a guest from the other world. As long as they don’t provoke her, she is too lazy to bother with those small characters.
“Am I not the biological daughter of the first wife? Why does this Murong Xin Lian from the illegitimate line dare to do this to me? Can it be that Murong Tai’s first wife is so muddleheaded?”
“Answering miss, even though you are from the legitimate line, but since small your body is weak and couldn’t practice martial arts, so……”
The following words, the person in black didn’t say but in her heart she is puzzled. Mozun daren3 used ‘genius from the heaven’ to describe miss. Even that person said miss is ‘a century rare’ genius. How can it be that she is being called useless by her family?!
“That’s why I’m a useless decoration. Dad doesn’t like me, mom doesn’t love me. Even knowing that she is framed, a useless daughter dying is alright. Is this what you want to say?”
The young woman swim to the shore and looked smilingly at the person in black kneeling on the ground.
Hearing that, the person in black shuddered. She immediately lowered her head.
“Miss, this is not what this subordinate means……”
“Hahaha! Stand up! I have said, there aren’t these many rules. I’m teasing you!”
The young woman’s laughter is like silver bells. Seeing that she isn’t angry, the person in black’s heart felt slightly relieved.
Everyone knows that miss is like Mozun daren, temperament but with extraordinary ability. That’s why she won Mozun daren’s love. Not only did he adopt her as his daughter, he also passed Moyu to her.
- Moyu: a dark sect from jianghu
In this world, you can offend everyone but you can’t offend miss.
Offending Mozun daren, at most you’ll die, but offending miss living will be more painful than death. Being with miss for five years, this truth, the person in black understand clearly.
“Miss, it’s those people who doesn’t have eyes. They dare to treat miss this pearl as a pebble. It’s their loss.”
The person in black stood up. The look in her eyes while looking at the young woman is stunning.
Serving miss for so long, but the times when she get to see miss’s true appearance isn’t much. Every time, she sees her real appearance, even as a young woman she is attracted by miss. Such a beautiful young woman, making people not dare to get closer. Not dare to profane and couldn’t help but bow to worship……
“No need to bother with them. These are things of the past. They are just some small shrimps. Laoniang4 is too lazy to play with them.”
The young woman once again swim into the water. The white musty fog enveloped her.
“Miss, this time, I’ve found out another thing.”
“The one with a marriage arrangement with miss, Jing wang5 Longze Jing Tian has won the south He Lan Yu. Soon, he’ll return triumphantly with the troops to the capital. Now everyone at court is saying that Jing wang is a young war god. Murong Xin Lian seems to have a crush on Longze Jing Tian and wants to sabotage.”
Just now she was thinking if they don’t bother her, she won’t bother them. Hearing this, the young woman in the water humphed coldly. Then she laughed again.
“Jing wang is returning? Surely in a few days, Murong Tai will send people to get me. The funny things will begin!”
Su Mei couldn’t figure out why miss is happy, but she understood, if miss is happy, someone is in trouble. Just don’t know if that unlucky person is Murong Xin Lian or another person……
“First you go back to Moyu and arrange everything. When you come back bring Su Yue. Go……”
Just after a gust of wind, the person in black disappeared without trace.
The young woman soaked in the hot spring lazily. Her eyes are looking at the moon in the sky.
In a flash, she has come to this world for five years. Don’t know if the people from that world also can see such a beautiful moon……
Just as the young woman is in deep thought, sounds of swords came from far and near.
“Go die, Longze Jing Tian! Your people wouldn’t be here in time! Brothers, hurry! The person who kill Jing wang, the reward will be his! Hahaha!”
“Relying with only you guys, you want to hurt me?”
Although the voice of this person is calm, but he is already seriously injured. The other party has a lot of man and they are experts.
It seems that wanting to take a bath quietly will be impossible…….
The young woman leisurely got out of water. She gently wipe the drops of water from her body. Then she wrapped herself with the white clothes hanging on a tree.
“Longze Jing Tian, if it’s normally, we certainly won’t be able to hurt you, but you’ve been poisoned for several days. I don’t believe that with so many people from our Wu Ji Gong, we can do nothing to you! Everyone don’t listen to him. Let’s attack together! They only have five people!”
In the dark, ‘shua shua’ sounds can be heard. More than a dozen people in black rounded the five people.
“Wangye, you go first. We will delay them here!”
Lu Yuan blocked Longze Jing Tian.
“Ye, escort wangye and leave!”
“Ge6, I won’t go! You go with wangye!”
At a side, Lu Ye cut off a man in black’s head.
“None of you can leave!”
Just in a blink of eye, a charming woman in red stood next to Mei Sha.
“Shixiong7, such a small thing, how come it’s still not done yet?”
“Shimei8, Jing wang is not a small character. A lot of our people died!”
“Humph! Plainly, you are useless! Look at me!”
A red figure went towards Lu Ye next to Longze Jing Tian. A muffled sound can be heard. On Lu Ye’s abdomen there’s a hole, blood trickling out.
Lu Ye felt pain, he knelt with one knee. With a sword in one hand, he is supporting himself to not fall. The other hand is quickly hitting the pressure point to stop the bleeding.
“Hehehe, it’s of no use, my dagger has poison on it.”
The woman in red laughed evilly. White teeth, red lips. Looking at it, she seemed like a demoness from hell.
“Ye, how are you?”
Lu Yuan hurriedly went to Lu Ye’s side, only to find out that his lips are already purple. His face is filled with a layer of black.
“Demoness, get me your life!”
Seeing his little brother hurt, Lu Yuan pointed his sword at Jue Sha, but has been dodged by her.
“Longze Jing Tian, our task is only to take your head. Why should you make things difficult for the people who follow you?! As long as you are obedient, we will let them go. I can also give him the antidote!”
Jue Sha is standing beside Mei Sha. One in red, one in black, really matching. It’s just that the woman in red is quite pretty and the man in black really ugly.
Although that man called Longze Jing Tian is seriously wounded, but he is still standing with a straight back. Although he is somewhat pale, but the aura emitting from his body will make people not daring to get close to him.
“Benwang9 wants to know who is it that wants my life?”
Longze Jing Tian slowly opened his mouth. His voice is deep, full of confidence. Even with the present situation, not a trace of panic can be heard.
Mei Sha seemed to have heard a good joke.
“Longze Jing Tian, when you are in hell, Yan Luo10 will tell you. Go die……”
Mei Sha turned into a black wind and went straight at Longze Jing Tian’s chest.
His speed is fast, making it so that Lu Yuan can’t approach.
Lu Yuan’s roar revealed a trace of despair. He can only watch Mei Sha’s sword pierce into Longze Jing Tian’s heart.
Suddenly, a white wind caught Mei Sha’s sword.
The sword turned into ash in the white wind. Then screams can be heard. Three people in black has fallen.
“Who are you?”
The stunned Mei Sha took a few steps back before he stood firm. He is surprised to see the young woman in white before him. In his eyes showed unbelievableness.
Being able to easily cut his tornado open, who is this young woman?
“You disturbed my quietness.”
The young woman in white passed her finger leisurely through her dripping wet hair. With the sweep of the finger a white mist emerged and her hair is instantly dry. The hair are loose over her shoulders till her ankles.
This scene appeared somewhat spooky to the crowd. When everyone’s eyes fell on the young woman’s face, sounds of saliva dripping on the ground and betrayed their inner thoughts.
