Villainess Wants To Turn Over A New Leaf - Chapter 398
Lin Feilu talked a lot to Yan Xin— about the succession battle in the capital, about the innocent people who died in the battle, and the guilt Lin Ting couldn’t let go of. In the end, she just smiled and said, “Sister-in-law, I’ll leave my brother to you.”
There were tears in Lin Feilu’s eyes, but she was clearly smiling. Yan Xin looked into her eyes and nodded seriously.
With the moon hanging above the forest of trees, illuminating the sky dimly, the stars of late spring were particularly bright.
Lin Feilu rubbed her eyes casually and happily walked back, “Then let’s go back. I’m going to be lazily sleeping in tomorrow, so I won’t send you off.”
Yan Xin nodded.
The two walked back along the long street, chatting casually. When they passed a wine shop, there were the sounds of a brawl happening. Yan Xin’s auricle moved as she tilted her head and said to Lin Feilu, “There is a martial arts Master inside.”
Lin Feilu didn’t feel much about the fight, but after hearing what she said, she suddenly became interested in the aforementioned Master. Dragging her along inside, she said, “Let’s go and have a look.”
As soon as the two of them reached the corridor, a few chairs toppled down as Yan Xin pulled Lin Feilu away to avoid them. Lin Feilu looked up but saw a man in black wearing a mask brawling with a man dressed in blue.
She was initially here to spectate the scene, but the more she watched, the more she felt like something had gone wrong. With a crack in her voice, she shouted, “It’s Xi Xingjiang!”
The man in blue was Xi Xingjiang. He was drinking here alone tonight when suddenly, a masked man appeared. The unknown man’s moves were killer techniques, and it was obvious that he was trying to take his life.
The two wrestled for a while, but it was notable that the opponent’s martial skills were better than the Viscount’s. Xi Xingjiang gradually lost as he was also rather tipsy from the amount of alcohol he drank. The opponent then thrust his blade into Xi Xingjiang’s shoulder, spraying a trail of blood as he aimed for his heart next.
Lin Feilu said anxiously, “Yan Xin, help him!”
Yan Xin frowned before she drew her broadsword and flew up.
Yan Xin’s interference temporarily slowed down the situation. Taking advantage of the moment when Yan Xin and the masked man were fighting, Xi Xingjiang retreated in time, clutching onto the wound on his shoulder and taking a breath.
Lin Feilu initially thought that with Yan Xin there, the masked man would not be able to resist for a long time before being subdued. Unexpectedly, after a while, Yan Xin was gradually forced back again and again by the long sword in the opponent’s hand, proving that the Master was indeed formidable.
She was ranked 10th on the Hero List, yet the other party was even stronger than Yan Xin?
Lin Feilu was extremely shocked as she stared fixedly at the black figure before the solemnity in her eyes slowly turned into a trace of unbelievable astonishment. Next to her, Xi Xingjiang got a hold of himself as he took his sword and wanted to join the battle, but the masked man glanced down at them. Taking advantage of the moment Yan Xin turned around, he flew out from the skylight.
Xi Xingjiang tried to chase him as he took two steps forward, but Lin Feilu yelled, “Stop chasing!”
The wine shop was a mess, and Xi Xingjiang’s face showed he was in pain. He gritted his teeth and said, “If it weren’t for you, I might have been dead tonight. I don’t know where this person came from, but his swordsmanship skills were very mighty.”
Lin Feilu’s heart was beating extremely fast, but she forced herself to be calm, “Let’s go home first.”
In case the masked man was to appear again, the two sent Xi Xingjiang back to the General’s Residence before he sent a team of guards to escort the girls back.
Yan Xin looked at Lin Feilu, who was silent all the way, and comforted her, “Although I am no match for him, I won’t let him hurt you, so don’t worry.”
Lin Feilu forced herself to smile. After returning to the Princess’s Residence, Yan Xin wanted to stay behind and protect her. Lin Feilu countered, “Even if that person appears again, he will go to Xi Xingjiang instead of me. You still have a journey ahead of you tomorrow, so you should return.”
That being said, Yan Xin still waited in the residence until late at night before finally leaving.
