Chapter 48: Bloodlust Overflows
Translated by: Sugar
Sigh… What do I do without Connor…. Connor is love! Connor is Life!
“Make preparation for Rong Hui’s funeral” declared Cui Xiu Lin, whose face was full of wrinkles and could no longer maintain the fake compassionate act, tapping her cane as she left the main hall. On her way out, she said, “Jin Lan. Come with me.”
Jiao Yue and Chu Yun were both worried, fearing that the Hua Old Madam might do something to harm Jin Lan. After all, despite being bullied and humiliated for many years by Wan Yu, the Old Madam had never said a word. Hence,if the Hua were to do anything to harm Jin Lan, it was all to be expected.
Jin Lan lifted her hand to stop them and went to follow Xiu Lin.
Xiu Lin’s courtyard was located at the deepest part of the Hua’s mansion. Inside, an impressive looking Buddhist hall was built. Only two types of people would worship Buddha daily: monks and nuns, as well as those who carried a heavy sin. Jin Lan believed the Hua Old Madam was the latter.
The patio was completely silent. When attendants and servant passed by, they would move softly and silent, making an effort to not make a single sound. Once Xiu Lan entered the hall, she quickly dismissed any onlookers as she strolled to the center of room. Suddenly she halted, and turned around to look at Jin Lan, not saying anything.
“Identical, truly similar.” Xiu Lin’s face emerges a strange smile while checking her out, “You…, wearing that red outfit. Indeed, you and your mother look alike.”
Jin Lan had completely no emotional attachment with this body’s mother, she did not even care how she looked like or what was she wearing. However, Xiu Lin’s smile made her uncomfortable,and Jin Lan’s numerous years of experience told her in a flash that she need to escape.
Xiu Lin appeared to have little care about her wariness, disregarding her expression.
Jin Lan made a dash towards the exit, however just before she was within reach a strong force pulled her back and threw her on the ground. When she looked backed, Xiu Lan was already in front of her blocking her path, the door behind her was shut close.
“You wish to kill me.” Said Jin Lan with certainty, as she climbed up from the floor.
The smile on Xiu Lan’s face vanished completely, looking at Jin Lan as though she was a dirty object, “You are practically the same as that woman, equally disgusting.”
Jin Lan’s lips curled into a smile, “Are you so afraid of her?”
As if she had heard a joke, Xiu Lin laughed loudly, raising her brows and replying in a frivolous tone, “Do you know what happen to her?”
Full-on bloodlust overflowed out! Jin Lan was stunned, goosebumps appearing on her entire body!
Just when the brain sent a warning signal, Xiu Lin appeared in front of Jin Lan once again with an indistinguishable speed creating a huge air wall, flinging Jin Lan back.
Xiu Lin looked at her sharply, “Go down and ask her!”
Jin Lan stretched out her hand, trying to grab anything nearby, however the wall which hung a painting of ‘The Eight Immortals crossing the ocean’ opened like revolving door, a huge black hole similar to a beast’s mouth, instantly swallowing her whole!
