The sharp shortsword danced in Liu Yue’s hands as she stepped on the field of corpses, walking towards Qiu Hen and the others.
Outside, she had forced her way through the fake Imperial Guards who had surrounded Liu Li Palace and charged in, leaving the rest of the assassins to be cleared by the Tiger Army soldiers. Indeed, it was more chaotic inside than outside. Fortunately she had come in time.
“Long live the Princess Consort!” Qiu Hen, Yan Hu and the other Dragon Riders were excited beyond words. Their King didn’t die! Their King would return!
“Che-er!” Imperial Consort Chen, who hadn’t shed a tear when held at blade point or while she faced a life and death situation, immediately cried with happiness when she saw Liu Yue. Tears overflowed from her eyes, but a tremulous smile bloomed on her face like a beautiful flower.
Hearing this, members of the Mu Rong Clan on the other side were also overjoyed as they cheered happily. Good, good! Xuan Yuan Che didn’t die, the person they supported didn’t die. This was indeed a good thing!
On the other hand, the fake Imperial Guards had a dark look on their faces; their expressions didn’t look good.
A sword swept past and a few drops of blood splashed onto Liu Yue’s garments. Her ordinary clothes had been thoroughly tarnished with the colour of blood, red as fire, just like a demon from hell.
Waves of killing intent revolved around Liu Yue’s body and her demonic aura both startling and bewitching.
Trails of blood followed Liu Yue’s sword everywhere she went. Nobody could stop her onslaught; not a single person could prevent their own deaths.
Killing from outside the city all the way to Liu Li Palace, Liu Yue had already been covered with blood. That sharp killing intent was so intense that it could kill without physical contact.
The reason that nobody could defend against her attacks wasn’t because Liu Yue was too powerful, but because of that demonic killing intent emanating from her body. It was so intense that even the assassins were frozen with fright.
The fake Imperial Guards immediately started to retreat towards the Liu Li Palace gate.
“Thinking of escaping? Humph! Do you think this is some place where you come when you want to come and leave when you want to leave? Don’t even think you can leave here today.” Snorting coldly, Liu Yue threatened the assassins.
“That’s right. Do you think you can come when you want to come and leave when you want to leave? It’s not that easy. Brothers, kill!” Qiu Hen shouted loudly as his eyes turned bloodshot, like a panther. He wore an excited expression that carried a resolution to kill.
“Kill!” Every single Dragon Rider and Blood Shadow Guard charged spiritedly. With their Princess Consort here, why would they be afraid of anyone? Kill!
In an instant, it was as if everyone had consumed steroids. They charged forward like berserkers.
At the same time, Qiu Hen and Yan Hu took out the Tiger Seal and Army Seal from their robes and passed them to Liu Yue who had already charged forward. The seals were not safe in their hands, but they would definitely be safe in their Princess Consort’s hands.
