WILD PRINCESS: MARRYING AN UGLY PRINCE - WILD PRINCESS: MARRYING AN UGLY PRINCE Chapter 26 - Raid of Assassination
Nightmare didn’t feel surprised after listening to Bai Aoxue’s words. He also knew a lot of things from what Xiangxue just said.
Bai Aoxue’s resentment against Prime Minister’s mansion may not be eliminated easily.
“No problem. As long as you cooperate with me obediently, our trade will go smoothly.” Nightmare stared at Bai Aoxue’s placid face.
However, Xiangxue, who was standing on the side, was not so calm. She did not expect Bai Aoxue to be so cruel and cold.
Even if she resented Prime Minister’s mansion and hate Bai Qiwei, she can’t ruin it.
However, what Bai Aoxue just said was like a playful joke, causing no slightest fluctuation of Bai Aoxue’s mood at all.
Xiangxue finally understood that Bai Aoxue was not pretending to be so.
It was emitted from the inside to outside. A person like her may even have a heart as cold as ice.
“I hope that when I want to leave, we can separate merrily as we got together.” Bai Aoxue looked at Nightmare and said faintly.
When Nightmare heard the words of Bai Aoxue, he became absentmindedly for a moment.
He hasn’t considered what his marriage arrangement with Bai Aoxue would be if his purpose was achieved.
He has always disdained love. People who were too addicted to it would only delay great events. He didn’t need things like love which had no usability at all.
Now, the requirements put forward by Bai Aoxue have made it impossible for Nightmare to answer.
“Hhh, I agree, I shall never retain when you want to leave.” Nightmare looked at Bai Aoxue, who was firmly determined, and said the answer she expected.
“That will be the best.” Bai Aoxue nodded with satisfaction.
“In this case, can I take my maidservant away with me now?” Bai Aoxue indifferently glanced at the Xiangxue who lied on the ground.
Xiangxue glared at Bai Aoxue with rounded eyes after listening to her words. She didn’t know why Bai Aoxue would like to take her away under such circumstances.
Xiangxue looked at Nightmare, her eyes filled with hope, while Nightmare seemed to be unaffected, giving no glimpse to Xiangxue.
“Take her away. Just a servant.” Nightmare’s indifferent voice completely pierced Xiangxue’s vital heart.
Looking at Nightmare despairingly and unbelievably, Xiangxue seemed to hear the sound of her heart-break.
She vaguely remembered that indifferent and alienated male voice when she was starving, having the last breath and lying on the ground.
“Do you want to live?” That indifferent male voice was like God’s tone for Xiangxue.
Xiangxue, who was about to fell in coma, was shocked when she heard that sound. She expressed her thoughts with a movement that was invisible to eyes.
The man looked at nodded Xiangxue. “If you want to live, you must learn to kill people. Do you dare?”
Xiangxue difficulty raised her head, looking at the belief that she would follow in the future. The sun shone fiercely above that man. Radiant light made Xiangxue could not open her eyes.
Xiangxue still tried to open her eyes and look at the man who saved her from pain and nervousness.
“I can….” A faint and almost inaudible sound emitted from Xiangxue’s mouth.
After listening to the words of Xiangxue, the man quickly turned around.
There was no figure of that man in the next second. The air only kept his indifferent voice.
“Take her away. Train her well.”
This was the last sentence that Xiangxue heard before she was in a coma, but she felt at ease.
After that, Xiangxue worked hard on martial arts. She strove to fulfill tasks. She always believed that being around him was the best thing.
But most of the time people can’t control their own desires.
When she found Nightmare was surrounded by women even if he was called ugly prince, her envy was completely ignited.
This time, Nightmare was going to marry Bai Aoxue. So Xiangxue’s resentment and sorrow were intertwined for Bai Aoxue.
Originally, her task was just to follow Su Qianqian. She arbitrarily bribed the maidservant who was going to approach Bai Aoxue.
She thought that Nightmare did care about her since he did not punish her for delayed report. She didn’t realize that she was self-sentimental.
Now, one sentence of Nightmare completely let Xiangxue fall into an infinite abyss.
Bai Aoxue thought that even if Nightmare was inexorability, he should not reply so readily. After all, Xiangxue was so loyal to him.
However, Bai Aoxue didn’t care about it. Xiangxue had to be punished for betraying her.
Staring at Xiangxue who lied on the ground, Bai Aoxue slowly walked towards her.
“Do you remember what I said? Death is not the endgame if you betray me.”
Xiangxue listened to Bai Aoxue’s words, and she giggled and said: “I never thought about being loyal to you. Are you really so naïve to believe I would be loyal to you? What a ridiculous young lady. Hahaha…”
Looking at that pair of eyes bursting out hatred, Bai Aoxue gradually understood.
Just a woman who was trapped by love, Bai Aoxue mocked.
“Xiangxue, maybe you end up like this for you have coveted something that you shouldn’t.” Bai Aoxue looked at Xiangxue.
“You shut up! It’s none of your business! Miss wouldn’t give up me without you!!” Xiangxue turned to be crazy after listening to Bai Aoxue’s words.
When Nightmare was just about to take a move after hearing the words of Xiangxue, he suddenly felt an air of killing.
Bai Aoxue also felt it. She faintly frowned and then quickly checked around.
She couldn’t be more familiar with this kind of atmosphere. It belonged to night killers who came only for massacring.
Nightmare hurriedly strode towards Bai Aoxue and exchanged look with her.
Both of them saw affirmation from each other’s eyes.
“Here come about twenty people. You need to be careful. It will be safer to hide behind me.” Nightmare condensed strength and said to Bai Aoxue.
Bai Aoxue listened to the words of Nightmare and raised up her eyebrows. She felt unexpected.
She thought that this time Nightmare would likely give up her.
“Don’t look at me with that expression. I have never been a person who feared of death. Moreover, in this world, the person who could take away my life has not yet been born!” His supreme majesty made her take back that skeptical sight.
Bai Aoxue didn’t know who was offended by Nightmare and sent so many killers. Besides, she could tell from the atmosphere that those killers were not easy to handle.
“So, please protect this submissive girl, your Higness.” Bai Aoxue looked at Nightmare and entertained him.
When Nightmare heard the words of Bai Aoxue, the corner of his mouth twitched. He was glad that he wore a mask.
In this way, Bai Aoxue can’t see his uncontrolled smile face.
The original elegant bamboo garden was also covered with chill during their conversation.
Nearly twenty killers have already encircled Bai Aoxue and Nightmare.
Bai Aoxue looked at these killers and found nothing in their bloody dull eyes besides targets.
They cannot be called as killers but puppet.
“They are the killers of the Ink-blood Tower. Follow me and don’t get hurt.” Nightmare looked at those approached people, and disdainfully laughed.
Bai Aoxue, standing behind him, raised up her eyebrows and felt surprised after hearing the name of Ink-blood Tower.
She also heard of this Ink-blood Tower. Ink-blood Tower titled the strongest killer party in Great Continent. Those killers were all selected from elites.
Everyone has murdered at least one hundred people.
Killer killed. But killers of the Ink-blood Tower were crueler than ordinary killers. They were bloodthirsty, cold and grim. They would be excited as long as they saw blood just like beasts.
If it was in the heyday of Bai Aoxue, she would probably be excited and challenge them.
But now Bai Aoxue was too weak. She didn’t want to die until she lived full of it.
This was also why she didn’t reject Nightmare’s request of hiding behind him.
When did the previous Bai Aoxue need to hide behind others?
“You can rest assured. I will follow you.” The dagger hid in Bai Aoxue’s sleeve was ready for killing.
Although she was protected, there must have invaders taking advantage of the weak situation.
Although she can’t fight face to face, she never missed a sneak attack.
Apparently Nightmare was satisfied with that “I will follow you”. He glanced at Bai Aoxue with a good mood.
“Don’t worry, I will protect you. The woman behind me surely should be protected by me.” That very usual sentence let Bai Aoxue’s heartbeat pause a second since it came from Nightmare’s mouth.
“Nightmare, Death is at hand, yet you still care about others. Anyway, neither of you can live today.”
A masked man looked at Nightmare indifferently.
After hearing the words of that man, Nightmare was not angry but laughed. He said: “How dare you losers utter the name of a lord?”
When that man was just about to fly into a rage when he heard Nightmare’s words, he saw that Nightmare has already made a move.
The speed was so fast that even Bai Aoxue, who was behind him, has not seen it.
The man just wanted to escape. However, it was already too late.
Not until that man fell to the ground with rounded eyes did the rest of the killers come back to their senses.
When everyone else looked at each other, they saw shock and demise in their eyes.
Everyone tacitly attacked towards Nightmare. The world of killers was just like this. Life and death were just in the blink of an eye. If the task was not fulfilled, they cannot live. Only to take risks did they have a chance to live.
Of course, sympathy would not emerge in their minds.
And Bai Aoxue, who was standing aside, finally saw how that fallen man died.
Blood spilled from the man’s neck to the ground with a sharp bamboo leaf lying aside.
Yes, it was a bamboo leaf. Bai Aoxue looked at Nightmare shockingly. He used bamboo leaves to kill. How powerful was he that could kill a person with bamboo leaves.
Nightmare glimpsed Bai Aoxue’s shocked appearance only felt her extremely cute. Such an idea only existed for a moment until it was interrupted by a gang of killers.
Bai Aoxue knew that it was not the time for shocking. She composed herself then followed Nightmare vigilantly.
Nightmare didn’t feel Bai Aoxue a burden. Instead, he appeared leisurely.
And these killers also understood that there lied a huge gap between them and Nightmare. It was impossible to performing the task of assassinating him.
But no one has retreated.
Nightmare played tricks on those killers but forgot Xiangxue who originally lied on the ground.
Xiangxue was originally in deathly stillness because of what Nightmare said. After witnessing how he treated Bai Aoxue, Xiangxue was overwhelmed by resentment and unwillingness in an instant.
There was only one madly idea in Xiangxue’s mind at that moment: to kill Bai Aoxue! To kill Bai Aoxue!
Xiangxue was also dominated by hatred, quietly getting up. She quickly rushed to Bai Aoxue when no one had time to react.
Bai Aoxue felt something when Xiangxue approached. However, she couldn’t escape under such circumstances since it would distracted Nightmare and exposed himself in danger.
Since Nightmare protected her, she can’t set him in danger.
Xiangxue looked at Bai Aoxue who couldn’t escape and laughed: “Hahaha… Bai Aoxue, today is your funeral!”
