Villainess Wants To Turn Over A New Leaf - Chapter 267
Lin Qing’s senses were already heightened to the extreme at this moment and his reaction ability was extremely fast. Although his brain had yet to process the words, his body had already made the call as he rolled to the side. At the same time, a sharp blade that glowed with a cold flash of light pierced the air. The blade glided from a distance and was shot straight into the tiger’s left eye.
The injured tiger roared wildly in pain. Lin Qing looked up and saw Noble Consort Xi jumping from the back of the little white horse. She held a short knife and swooped towards the tiger from mid-air.
The Noble Consort and the tiger suddenly got engaged in a close quarter combat.
Although Noble Consort Xi Tan had previously injured herself on the battlefield, she still had a very strong foundation in kung fu. Being apt at Qing Gong, her posture was very flexible. The tiger was already blinded in one eye, so her playing tricks on him and evading its attacks infuriated it to no end and only caused it to mindlessly attack even more violently.
Xi Tan was injured in the end and her arm hurt whenever she exerted force. The roaring tiger slapped its paw on her shoulder and instantly tore off a piece of her flesh as she fell heavily to the ground.
However, the tiger did not take the opportunity to maul her. Instead, it turned around and pounced towards Lin Qing again.
A mouthful of blood gushed out from Xi Tan’s throat, but she gritted her teeth and launched herself from the ground. Leaping up, she managed to grab the tiger’s tail and shouted at Lin Qing, “Run!” while still hanging on to the tail.
Lin Qing’s eyes were red with blood. He knew that if he left, Noble Consort Xi was going to die. She came to rescue him, so it made no sense to leave her to die. That sort of ruthless and unrighteous act of greed towards life and fear of death should be despised by the world.
Thinking of this, not only did Lin Qing choose not to run, but he picked up his short knife and immediately charged towards the tiger.
Xi Tan was almost going to go mad from anger at Lin Qing’s behaviour.
Lin Qing was the Crown Prince of the country and he was related to the very foundation of the Great Lin Empire. If something were to happen to him, there would be turmoil in the country and the ruling monarch. Throughout the pages of history, there have been a few cases where countries fell apart due to the internal disputes happening between royal siblings for the throne of their respective lands.
As an decorated army general, she would never allow such a thing to happen on her watch— even if it meant that it was going to be at the expense of her life.
She was no longer able to protect her country on the battlefield, so protecting the Crown Prince was the only thing she could do right now.
Xi Tan’s eyes narrowed as she wrapped the tiger’s tail around her right hand twice before yanking it back. The tiger, in pain and in a frantic frenzy, turned its head back to bite her. However, with all of her strength in the pull, the tiger fell backwards and landed on the ground with a thud. Even though she was also on the ground, she raised her already mauled elbow as the knife in her hands slashed forward and the sharp blade ripped open the beast’s belly apart. A pool of blood spurted out as the crimson liquid dyed her pale face vermillion.
The tiger’s deafening roars gradually faded and its huge body twitched once or twice more. Slowly but surely, it took its final breath and never moved again.
The forest was silent for a while.
