Yun Bixue’s expression froze. The sky was gradually turning dark. She could even hear the howling of the cold wind across the forest. The wind brought bouts of chills, turning her heart frigid. No matter how strong she felt inside, she was still rather fragile facing tonight’s mission.
However, she understood that in order to be a Young Madam Xie who deserved her status, she had to possess a relentless and resolute attitude. Otherwise, in this cut-throat world, only one party would survive. If wanted to survive, she had to eliminate her opponents.
Yun Bixue took a deep breath and closed her eyes. When she opened them, her gaze was shining with clarity and determination. “Let’s go! Proceed to the safe zone.”
As she spoke, Yun Bixue led Yang Mei, Xie Qi, Xie Ba, and Xie Shiyi. They rushed to the zone where they had previously marked. She tugged on an iron chain at the side, and a few of them immediately fell into a pit that had been dug out earlier.
At the same time, she relayed the orders to carry out the mission. Above them, the sounds of skirmish and gunshots were heard. The battle seemed endless. They could even feel the vibrations underneath the ground.
Yun Bixue’s face turned ghastly pale, but her expression remained the same as she clenched her jaw. Her forehead was clammy with sweat, and her heart filled with dread. Despite this, she forced herself to calm down and stay rational. If she didn’t go ahead with this mission, her enemies would still find her and take her down.
Xie Qi, Xie Ba, and Xie Shiyi had no idea what their Young Madam was feeling at that moment. Instead, they admired her calmness and quick-wittedness. They could see a glimpse of a qualified future matron from Young Madam.
On the other hand, Yang Mei had been beside Miss Yun all along, so she understood her current predicament. She reached out and clutched Miss Yun’s hand, offering her strength and assuring her that she was by her side.
As men of sacrifice, the training that they’ve received since young had been arduous. That’s why the current circumstance was nothing out of the ordinary. On the contrary, the education that Miss Yun received was different from theirs. All things considered, Miss Yun was already doing a terrific job.
At that moment, Yun Bixue desperately wanted to ask about the Yun family’s men of sacrifice. If any of them were harmedor worse, killedher heart would break. Nonetheless, she knew that she shouldn’t ask. She could never ask. She couldn’t afford to show grief or pitythey should only be felt in her heart. She had to appear resolute and tough on the surface.
Beside her, Xie Qi, Xie Ba, and Xie Shiyi constantly observed her. If she wanted to become someone whom others would acknowledge as Young Madam Xie, now is the best time to start and make the change.
The men of sacrifice from the Du and Zheng families did not have the slightest clue that Yun Bixue and her companions would vanish under the ground. Instead, all of them were surrounded and slaughtered. Before they could even react in time, they were engaged in an intense massacre.
They had been too focused on their goal of killing Yun Bixue that they had not foreseen the threat of her counterattack. However, it was too late for them to figure it out now.
Time seemed to crawl. They didn’t know how much time had passed, but no one spoke at all. They were all in deep thought, conserving their energies. Silence then followed the pandemonium. After a long while, the device in Yang Mei’s hands vibrated. She then slowly announced, “Miss Yun, we can go out from that side now.” The place they were in was an extremely confined tunnel that had been dug out at the last minute. Despite the inconvenience, it had ensured their safety.
After a few of them came out of the tunnel, Yun Bixue looked at the marble-white color of the dawn sky, and sucked in a deep breath. Looking forward to a brand new day, she suddenly felt that it was great to be alive. She felt a change within her, as though she had surpassed her previous self.
“Let’s have some biscuits first, then continue in that direction. There should be some buildings over there.”
Because Xie Qi, Xie Ba, and Xie Shiyi had drastically changed their impressions of Young Madam, they sensed a deep-rooted resolve to obey her. Therefore, once Yun Bixue spoke, they followed her order and promptly ate the biscuits.
Following a road that was leading to their destination, half an hour had passed, then Xie Qi abruptly held Yun Bixue back. “Young Madam, I sense a killing intent. It’s dangerous!”
