Chapter 254: Unintentional Leak of Secrets
Translator: Novel Saga Editor: Novel Saga
Its Young Master Li. Princess Ling Mengs face was still pale, while her mind was still somewhat in doubt, The Young Master Li had visited the palace earlier?
I had arrived at the palace yesterday to meet the Princess in particular. However, the Princess was busy with something important, and we were unable to meet. The Princess looks even beautiful than ever today; she really wins the admiration of everyone.
Li You Ran spoke softly and his flattery didnt sound vulgar. His voice was so clear and sophisticated that a person wouldnt feel his to be comments ill-willed even if they didnt exactly make one happy.
Young Master Li talks very pleasant. Princess Ling Meng had gotten accustomed to flattery growing-up. Hence, she didnt take his words seriously. Young Master Li mustve had a reason to come looking for Ling Meng? I request Young Master Li to be straightforward since the Princess is exhausted and wishes to return to the Palace.
I heard that a mysterious Sky Xuan expert cast-out a throwing knife to rescue the Princess when she was attacked by assassins. Ive heard that the Princess keeps that knife in her private collection. Li You Ran casually chuckled as he leisurely spoke about the matter as if it were trivia, Would You Ran be lucky enough to see that knife?
But I dont understand why the Young Master Li would wish to take a look at that knife Please explicitly state the reason why you came to the Palace, and why you wish to examine the knife! Princess Ling Meng immediately became conscious. [Why does this guy wish to see that knife? Whats his intention?]
The Princess may be unaware of this however, You Ran had gone out a few days ago, and was unexpectedly ambushed by an assassin. Things had started to look bad, and You Ran thought that he might find himself in hell. However, an azure light flashed and threw a knife at the assassin in the nick of time. The assassin instantly retreated and You Rans life was saved. Li You Rans face reveled in sincere admiration and gratitude. In fact, it seemed as if he was deeply fascinated.
His favor has given me a new lease on life; and this has been engraved into my mind ever since. You Ran has been making enquiries about this person over the past few days since I wish to know more about him. It is a shame that You Ran hasnt been able to obtain any news of him. It was only a couple of days ago that You Ran remembered that the Princess had also been saved by a mysterious man once. Moreover, both men had used a concealed knife from secrecy to rescue us. Therefore, it might be possible that our benefactor is the same person? Li You Ran sighed, Hes benevolent. He saved my life without asking for anything return; hes so noble. You Ran is fascinated with this person.
Oh, Princess Ling Meng pursed her eyebrows. She could faintly sense that someone was amiss. However, she couldnt exactly tell what.
That person left after that. However, he left a few small throwing knifes lying on the ground; they glistened so beautifully Li You Ran didnt seem afraid to share his personal memories.
Li You Rans right hand went inside his bosom pocket. He fished for a while, and brought out three small and delicate throwing knifes.
These throwing knifes were very different from the usual ones found around the world; their blades were as delicate as a cicadas wings. The Princess could tell that these blades were manufactured by someone with exquisite skills. She could tell that there wouldnt be many people in the entire Tian Xiang Empire who were capable of producing such weapons.
They were impeccably delicate. They were so adorable that one couldnt refrain from caressing them. However, the cold light flickering off their surface resembled an infernal demon that was blinking in the dark of the night sky. They were quite sharp. And although they werent big in size, they were enough to send chills down ones spine.
One could tell that these tender and exquisite throwing knifes were weapons that could easily take anyones life.
The shape of these knifes look very similar. In fact, they look identical to the one I have. Princess Ling Meng heaved a sigh of relief. She then smiled and said, But, the material used in these two variants is very different even if they look similar. I can confirm that there is a massive difference in the art used to craft these two blade sets.
Li You Rans eyes hadnt left the Princesss beautiful face ever since he had brought out that knife. However, he finally looked away and smiled, The make of the weapons is very similar? But how could I know which one is better unless I get to compare the Princesss blade with mine?
Young Master Lis blades look cold and sharp enough to terrify anyone. However, their texture is no match for mine. In fact, your blades are no match for mine in terms of texture and make. However, your blades are much tougher than mine. My blade is merely made of iron, while Young Master Lis are made of an excellent metal. Your weapons are indeed worthy of being called divine weapons. Princess Ling Meng affectionately compared the weapons.
[These weapons must belong to the man who saved me!] The Princess had been able to figure this out at one glance. [Only that unrivaled genius is capable of making something so delicate and graceful. Only he is capable of making something so beautiful, yet sharp enough to be used for self-defense.]
[These weapons are elegant, yet callous; bloody yet beautiful. If such is the style of the weapon then such must be the style of the owner How could ordinary people like that scoundrel Jun Mo Xie ever possess such elegance and grace? Ordinary people would never be able to commission such peerless weapons!]
Princess Ling Meng had fantasized about her savior ever since the day of her attempted assassination. [If such is the elegance and divinity of his weapons, then just how smart and unruffled must that man be?!]
[Perhaps hes a man of peerless elegance and style!]
[Its disgraceful to watch that Jun Mo Xie pretend as if hes a man of indomitable spirit! Hes such a shameless guy! Humph]
A man of indomitable spirit well, these words were indeed appropriate to comment on the hitmans personality.
I really wouldnt be able to tell the difference between the blades unless I see the one in the Princesss collection, isnt that right? I really wish to know if we were saved by the same person or not? Li You Rans eyes seemed fervent with anxiety. It was almost as if he had suddenly received information about his savior, and couldnt contain his excitement anymore.
Heavens have taken pity on me. You Ran may finally be able to see another weapon made by his savior. His grace cannot be expressed in words. Hence, I wait to see it with my own eyes. May I look at it? Li You Rans righteous demeanor was indeed inspiring, How will I be any different from an animal if I cant thank him for his kindness!
That is true. Though, my knife isnt as good as Young Master Lis. However, I cherish it as a valuable item still. It never leaves me, and I never show it to anyone. However, I will make an exception since Young Master Lis words are honest and pure. Princess Ling Meng looked at him appreciatively. [I didnt think that he would be so cultured and refined. However, he is truly an honest and a gifted man!] The Princess muttered to herself as she drew out a small wrapped-package. She slowly opened it and revealed a small and delicate knife. The cold light reflecting off its surface had been mingled with the Princesss sweet and flagrant bodily scent.
Its exactly the same! Li You Ran seemed very excited. He placed the four blades in his palms. The blades indeed looked identical. One could tell that the material used to cast them was different. But the size and shape were exactly the same. Moreover, it was evident that these blades had been cast out using the same method.
Heavens indeed are watching! Ive finally found you! Li You Ran seemed rather emotional. A trace of a cold expression flashed in his eyes as he looked at Princess Ling Meng. His eyes begrudgingly revealed a trace of frustration.
[Now Im certain. That vile murderer and Princess Ling Mengs savior are related; they are probably the same person. No other person in this world is capable of producing creating these weapons!]
Princess Ling Meng was only a tempted woman in Li You Rans eyes.
[If there needs to be a sacrifice so be it.] Li You Ran sighed.
It seems that Young Master Li and I have been brought together by our benefactors grace, Princess Ling Mengs face reveled in a joyous expression. In fact, she seemed a bit bashful. This unique and strange expression only added another layer to the beauty of her tender face.
Please look after yourself Princess. Li You Rans soul was a slight phased by the look in the Princesss eyes, and her peerless beauty for a split second. However, he immediately regained his composure, and returned to his usual-cold mentality. You Ran must leave now. I will come to palace later in order to meet the Princess.
Li You Ran bowed after he finished speaking, and then turned around to leave. He didnt even bother to recover the knives, and left them with the Princess.
The murderer had been determined. Hence, the throwing knifes were completely useless to him now. Even the fact that they were impeccable weapons was of no value to him.
The Princess was a bit puzzled by the manner in which Li You Ran left. [Young Master Li had himself said that he really cherish his saviors weapons. And he carried-on about how grateful he is to the man. However, he simply left these blades with me after he thanked me it seems as if]
Mr. Wen was still standing behind her. He whispered, The words of Young Master Li were strange and roundabout. Something seems amiss they were almost contradictory. Moreover, his eyes revealed a hint of malice as he looked at the Princess even though there was no provocation. Hes definitely thinking of something vile. And it seems that he may have the Princess on his mind. I cant think of anything else other than that. Your Majesty, we must put one or two guards on the Princess for her safetys sake.
The Emperor narrowed his eyes, and whispered, But I also wish to see who this mysterious expert is. The Emperor noticed that trace of fear in Mr. Wens eyes, and laughed, Dont forget that Ling Meng has a bodyguard by her side. And that bodyguard is a Sky Xuan expert; her safety shouldnt be of concern.
Ye Gu Han? What if he proves to be insufficient? Or isnt always there by her side? Mr. Wen shook his head in disagreement; again and again, Its been a while since the last assassination attempt on her life. Wouldnt it be pure idiocy to neglect taking Ye Gu Han into account while planning her assassination again?
