Chu Yun bent down to pick up the Osmanthus cake from the sandy ground. In front was a cherry red horse just broke of its reins and charging wildly towards Chu Yun…..
“CHU YUN!” Jiao Yue cried out. At the same time she felt someone pass by her at high speed. The next moment, she saw fresh red blood dyeing the black hair of the figure. The horse with its throat sliced, swayed a little before falling down, the blood oozing out, forming a puddle of blood on the ground.
Nearby onlookers went silent,all eyes were glued to the knife wielding female figure drenched with blood.
“What….. What just happened?” the store owner stared at her now empty hands. The knife used to cut the Osmanthus cake was missing.
“Young…. Young Mistress…” Chu Yun who became speechless, gazing at the back of the Jin Lan.
Jin Lan answered, without even looking back “Shouldn’t you pick those pastries up?”
“Ah….Oh…. Yes.” Chu Yun quickly dust the Osmanthus cake and wrap it with paper.
The crowd chatters
“That horse…. belongs to Princess Wen Ya.”
“That was a rare breed, it can only be found at the west region.”
“That person killed it!”
“The Princess will never forgive her!”
“Miss…” the store owner added: “It would be best for you to run, if you are caught, your punishment will most likely be death penalty.”
“Young Mistress…” Both Jiao Yue and Chu Yun shivering in fear.
Exchange a human life for a horse? Preposterous!
“Is that lady crazy?”
“The Princess is here!”
The crowd parted allowing a red clad wearing female, holding a horse whip, to be seen. She looked at the corpse of the horse and then to Jin Lan, her face slowly reddens and is fueled with fury.
“Such nerves, how dare you murder the Princess’s favorite horse!” a child ran up to scold Jin Lan.
Jin Lan stared at Princess Wen Ya, Chun Yu Ru, and slowly bring up the bloody knife towards her own lips. *Lick* “Indeed it was a good horse, however it was unruly and wild. If you are unable to tame it properly, it is better off dead!”
Black hair draped over shoulder, eyes cold as ice and body drenched with blood, it was as though death god have came from hell. Even Yu Ru was speechless, unable to retort Jin Lan.
“Fourth Sister, why did you stop?” a braided-hair male appeared from the crowd.Wearing white robes, at his waist hung two jade pendants, having an aura full of grace, the exact description of a perfect man.
“But Second Brother….” Yu Ru ran towards the male, the second prince Chun Yu Zhuang, and pointed at Jin Lan, “That person killed my Hong Yi!”
“Hm?” Actually, Yu Zhuang had already seen what had happened from a nearby tea house. However, what peaked his interest was the mysterious woman, Jin Lan. While looking at the woman, all he could feel from her is the constant flow of killing intent, making the atmosphere very tense.
