Chapter 6: Good-for-Nothing (3)
“Apologise?” Gu Ruoyun laughed coldly, “Did you hit your head on something? I beat the Ling family’s young master? Don’t forget, I’m only a Qi level two good-for-nothing! Ling family’s young master has already reached Qi level five, do tell how I was able to beat him up? If you fought with the number one expert in Qinglong, and someone said that you managed to beat up the number one expert, would you also believe them?”
Old General Gu’s face turned livid, slammed his palm on the table with a bang, and said angrily: “Vile spawn! You dare to ignore even your grandfather’s commands! Since the Ling family has said that it’s your fault, then it was definitely you who provoked them first. Kneel down immediately, until they forgive you!”
“Ha ha!” Gu Ruoyun laughed twice, a trace of ridicule spread on the curve of her lips, “It was obviously he who was jealous of my brother’s talents and humiliated him first, and now in your words, it has become my provocation? So not only did you hit your head, but you even blinded your eyes, the Ling family’s young master is standing there without a scratch and he’s the one who was bullied? Whereas I, standing here covered in wounds, have become the one who beat him up? Grandfather, you’re really helping a stranger over family and reason?”
Old General Gu was momentarily frozen in shock, he no longer cared about getting angry, but looked at Gu Ruoyun with astonishment.
This… this is his very own granddaughter who has always been cowardly? When did she become so eloquent in speech?
“Who are you!”
Suddenly, Old General Gu’s expression deepened, and a wave of murderous intent filled the entire hall.
Even though Gu Ruoyun’s current strength was too weak, she could still use her mental strength to overcome this murderous intent, but doing so would definitely expose her, a risk she was not willing to take, so she let the murderous intent wash over her.
“Oh, now you want to kill me?” Gu Ruoyun raised her small pale face, saying with a mocking smile, “Anyway, you’ve already beaten me to death once, if not for my great vitality, I wouldn’t have been able to hold up. If you want to kill me, just kill me now! Only, I wonder how you’ll account for this when my brother comes back!”
Old General Gu slightly narrowed his eyes.
Actually, after killing Gu Ruoyun, he already had regrets. Even if Gu Ruoyun was a good-for-nothing, she still had a protective older brother, were it not for her refusal to admit her mistake, he would not have lost his head and laid such a heavy hand on her…
Fortunately, this good-for-nothing only stopped breathing for a short moment, and her heartbeat was quickly restored.
However, how could Old General Gu know, that that brief moment was enough for the soul in this body to change…
“Hmph, if you’re Gu Ruoyun, then I would have to account to Shengxiao, but too bad, you’re not her!” Old General Gu stated coldly, “In the end, who are you! That useless good-for-nothing Gu Ruoyun would never be able to speak like that!”
In a moment, the entire hall focused their gazes on Gu Ruoyun’s comely face.
Gu Ruoyun acted as if she could not feel their gazes, and smiled as she said in objection: “Wouldn’t you be the clearest on whether I am Gu Ruoyun or not? These few years, I’ve been pretending to be cowardly and weak, if only for a bit of peace, but after this incident, I have decided, even if I’m a good-for-nothing, I won’t continue being cowardly! If I continue being weak, you will only continue bullying me!”
Upon hearing this, understanding bloomed in everyone’s minds.
No wonder this good-for-nothing had this much courage, her cowardice had only been an act, now this actually makes sense…
Ling Yi was outraged and coldly said: “Gu Ruoyun, this old man was born protective, I don’t care if you’re right or wrong! You have to kneel down and admit your wrongs today, or, I won’t care if you have any genius brother or not, I’ll let you die right here!”
Glancing at Ling Yi’s sullen old face, Gu Ruoyun laughed: “You want to act against me, a junior? Aren’t you afraid that all the people of Qinglong will mock you for bullying the weak?”
“Then what do you want?”
“Why don’t we do it like this, let your grandson fight with me!”
