Ghost Emperor Wild Wife: Dandy Eldest Miss Chapter 383
Ling Yao slightly lowered her eyes and tightly clenched her fists.
"She followed that trash back to the Xiao Estate and is currently living inside that trash's courtyard. I suspect that she's only with the trash as a plan of convenience, and she's aiming to enter the Xiao Estate in order to make it easier for her to get close with Brother Yuqing."
Hearing Ling Yao's words, Lin Yue's expression increasingly darkened. She suddenly stood up, a cold light flashing through her eyes. "Let's go, we will find her now!"
That woman was actually audacious to this extent, desiring someone she should not. She absolutely could not tolerate something like that happening.
In the silent east court, only the chirping of a little bird could be heard.
Yun Luofeng lazily leaned against the door frame with her arms across her chest, regarding the simple yet elegant room in front of her. Gradually, her gaze shifted the cold man standing beside her.
"Yun Xiao, I want to know how you are under the Xiao Family's control."
Yun Xiao was briefly silent, his black eyes a deep abyss. "Everyone in the Xiao Family, after they are born, will all hand over a piece of their soul. This piece of soul is sealed in a jade pendant. If this jade pendant is damaged, I will at the least become an idiot and at the worst die!"
Injury to one's soul was not easy to remedy, especially since a piece of his soul was still in the Xiao Family's grasp.
If they only possessed a part of his soul, it would not be this dangerous, but the more important part was that the jade pendant used to seal the soul was created from special materials. Once someone got ahold of this pendant, it was the same as getting ahold of the owner's life.
If you wanted him to die, he definitely would not live past five geng!
This was why Yun Xiao did not take actions against the Xiao Family for these past years.
"Do you know where is that jade pendant stored?" Yun Luofeng asked with a slight furrow of her brows.
Yun Xiao gently pursed his thin lips and glanced at the frowning young girl beside him. "I don't know yet. I'm still investigating where the jade pendant is hidden. After I attain the pendant, I won't let off anyone from the Xiao Family!"
Especially that woman who tossed him into the Forest of No Return!
"Yun Xiao." Yun Luofeng lightly grasped Yun Xiao's hand and looked at him with serious eyes. "I will help you."
These past six months, Yun Xiao had helped her with too much. This time, it was her turn to help him...
The young girl's words made the man's cold gaze gradually change. Just as he was about to speak, footsteps could be heard from outside the courtyard. After hearing these footsteps, his brows knitted once more, and his expression returned to its usual coldness.
Within moments, Lin Yue's figure appeared in the courtyard. Her beautiful and alluring face was shrouded in a layer of cold frost, and her furious gaze went past Yun Xiao and landed on Yun Luofeng.
"You are that woman who is hoping to attain my son?" Lin Yue snorted and lightly raised her chin, saying in an overbearing manner, "Little girl, I can see how young you are, but how could you do something so shameless? I know that you simply took a fancy to our Xiao Family's power and wealth. How about this, I will give you one million taels, and you will immediately leave the Xiao Estate!"
Yun Luofeng wickedly raised her brows and turned to look at the man standing beside her with raised lips. "When did you suddenly have another mother?"
The man's cold eyes swept across Lin Yue before turning his head again, his dark eyes intently watching Yun Luofeng. "I don't know her."
These two people's conversation nearly angered Lin Yue to craziness. Her eyes, similar to those of a viper, remained unwaveringly fixed on Yun Luofeng as she coldly said, "Little girl, don't bother pretending to misunderstand, you know the person that I'm speaking of is Xiao Yuqing."
- Five geng (五更) is the fifth of the five night-watch periods, it is 3-5am. Comes from the saying "If the king of hell wanted you to die, you would not live past five geng."
