Chapter 246 – Unpredictable Future Part 5
Scrapping a person’s power would make him suffer more than just killing him. If he hadn’t nearly caused Ye Wu Chen to cripple his own power, then Mu Ru Yue wouldn’t have been this ruthless.
“I won’t consume it!” Ye Qiu glared viciously at Mu Ru Yue.
He had gotten used to others looking at him with respect. It would be unimaginable for him to live his life as a trash…
“You really don’t want to?” Mu Ru Yue sniggered coldly. “I remember that your disciple’s talent is not bad and you dote on him completely…”
Ye Qiu was shocked, and he paled. His disciple hadn’t helped him when he was in trouble and even now chose to hide at the side; however, Fu Lin wasn’t just his disciple—he was also his illegitimate son, his only son.
This girl, using Fu Lin to threaten him…
“You are such a demonic girl! Aren’t you scared of retribution?” Ye Qiu shrieked crazily; his body was shaking slightly.
“Retribution?” Mu Ru Yue looked at Ye Qiu. With coldness in her eyes, she continued, “Ye Qiu, if you provoked me alone, then perhaps I wouldn’t have resorted to doing this. However, Wu Chen suffered severe injuries and almost crippled his power because of you. If I were to receive retribution for avenging him, then I am willing to accept it. Since you are not willing to consume the pill by yourself, then…”
A layer of frost covered the young girl’s face. Just as she wanted to continue, Ye Qiu interrupted her with resolution in his tone, “I will consume it!”
He didn’t have any other choice now…
After accepting the pill, Ye Qiu closed his eyes and consumed it. The pill instantly liquefied after entering his mouth, making it impossible for him to spit it out.
“I’ve already consumed it, leave me now!”
In order to say just that one line, Ye Qiu gritted his teeth and used almost all of his strength.
Mu Ru Yue’s brows were slightly raised as she said, “You didn’t wait for me to finish what I wanted to say. If you didn’t want to consume it, I wouldn’t have forced you and would have just taken your life away. But since you have made such a choice, you won’t be able to die even if you want to now. Ye Qiu, you nearly caused my husband to cripple his power. I will let you have a taste of that.”
Ye Qiu didn’t wish to cripple Ye Wu Chen’s power, but he was the indirect reason why it almost happened. If it wasn’t for Ye Wu Chen’s power being beyond his, she would have probably seen only his corpse when she left the pill refining room…
That man was the reverse scale1 of her heart. Nobody was allowed to touch him!
“Master, let’s go.” Mu Ru Yue shrugged her shoulders and no longer looked at Ye Qiu who collapsed to the floor. From this moment on, he would no longer be an existence among the Mundane Stage Alchemists and Xiantian experts.
Wu Yu looked at Mu Ru Yue and chuckled.
This little fellow could be counted on to have great survival skills. Since this continent worked in a way where the strong was respected, if she had let Ye Qiu off, then with his viciousness, he definitely wouldn’t have done the same. Thus, the best move was to cripple his power and suppress him.
It would be much more painful for Ye Qiu to become a trash than to simply be killed off…
Ye Qiu focused on Mu Ru Yue’s leaving figure. He clenched his fists tightly, a trace of hatred flashing in his heart. But when he looked with hatred at Mu Ru Yue, an intense pain arose in his mind.
That pain was literally worse than death.
This girl was really vicious for making him unable to hate her when he desperately loathed her…
The current Ye Qiu didn’t think in the slightest that Mu Ru Yue wouldn’t have treated him in such a fashion if he hadn’t sought trouble and fought with Ye Wu Chen, hurting him severely…
He just reaped what he sowed. He shouldn’t blame anyone for that…
- A dragon has a reverse scale on their body that they will protect with their life. Even the nicest of dragons would go mad with anger when it’s touched. Basically, to touch it is the worst thing you could possibly do. – ED Argos ↩
