Quick Transmigrating Second Female Lead's Counterattack Chapter 85
“Prince Burton, if I am remembering correctly, crowd hunting is prohibited. Can you explain to me what this is?” You JiuXiao suppressed the anger in his heart. He still remembered that feeling of intense fear and hatred he felt when he was transformed into a vampire. As time passed, he eventually put those memories behind him. Unless there was no alternative, he absolutely wouldn’t drink blood from a human.
But the sight before him still felt like stabs into his heart.
Klos patted You JiuXiao’s shoulder. He opened his mouth but didn’t know what to say. He had also participated in hunting so he had no right to speak.
“Prince Jiu, the hunting game is a commonly accepted practice. If you truly are unaccustomed to it, you can leave first.” Burton had a wide smile on his face but his eyes were cold. “Today I specifically welcomed Wild Rose Queen to enjoy leisure. It’s best if Prince Jiu doesn’t damage the fun atmosphere.” The invited guest hadn’t even said anything so why should You JiuXiao speak out of turn?
XunMi narrowed her eyes. Was Burton really stupid, or was he pretending to be stupid? If he was going to try inciting disharmony amongst them, then he should at least understand their relationships.
“Prince Burton’s hunting game really is opening my eyes to a new world.” She gave a sorrowful smile, cornering Burton with one sentence.
“Not at all. This is all to celebrate Wild Rose Queen’s successful increasing rank. I hope Wild Rose Queen will be satisfied. Of course, if there’s anything you are dissatisfied with, then please fill free to bring it to my attention.” It will be even better if she had a lot of demands, that way he could make a fuss too.
However, XunMi was going to have to disappoint him.
“I’m not exactly satisfied, nor would I call this a request. I’m only curious. This forest seems to be part of my territory. Why did I not know that Prince has expropriated this place?” XunMi leaned into Qian YuYou, her finger tapping her chin. The wooden signs hanging from the trees were still symbols of a rose in full bloom. Everyone knew that the wild rose was her symbol.
Moreover, under the wild rose were the words: Property of the Wild Rose.
Hehe…everyone that could see would have noticed it okay. ┑(￣Д￣)┍
Burton froze for a moment. “This, I really didn’t know. The first hunting game was held here so…” His eyebrows furrowed together.
“If there’s anything you’ll like to say, please do. I’ll be able to distinguish wrong from right.” XunMi lightly curled her lips upwards. Scheming against her on her own territory? This really was a perfect business deal.
“The one who had chosen this location was Prince Klos,” Burton pretended to hesitantly spit out his name. Lowering his head, he covered the deep malice in his eyes.
He hoped that Ye ZhiYi’s side will have discovered the problem and will thus investigate with caution.
“You liar, I’ve never been here before. How could I be the one in charge of choosing the location?” Klos ignited with anger. He grabbed Burton by the collar and roared.
Besides the necessary vampire clan meetings, he’s always sticked to himself.
“Prince Klos might not remember. After all, it was many years ago. But I have evidence from the Memory Crystal. If you don’t believe me, I can go back and get it now.” Burton’s eyes judged Klos while his heart urged for them to quickly ask, quickly as for proof. That way, he would have the excuse to go back, and make sure there will be no mistakes today.
Out of the corner of her eye, XunMi glanced at Klos, who was almost jumping with anger. She spoke calmly, “Since it happened in the past, then forget it. From today onwards, I don’t wish to see this kind of thing occurring on my territory.
Alright, let’s go take a look now. I won’t hunt humans but I am interested in seeing those wild animals. This forest has many valuable types of animals. Since it’s such good weather today, let’s make a bet. Let’s guess who will have the most prey at the end. Of course, there should also be a prize. Since Prince Burton is the host, I wonder if you’ll have any good prizes to offer?” XunMi wasn’t afraid to speak out, offering punch after punch. After spending thousands of years as a Prince, he must have numerous treasures in his hands.
“I heard Prince Burton has a spirit stone, something that is coveted by many. How about we use that as a prize. That will be the only prize that would be compatible with everyone’s high status.” You JiuXiao knew that XunMi was planning a trap for Burton so he helpfully went along with her script.
As expected, Burton’s face immediately paled and then darkened when he heard the spirit stone being mentioned.
“Oh~~~” XunMi dragged her words out, revealing her interest in the spirit stone. “This spirit stone sounds like a treasure. Perfect, it’s decided then. We’ll meet back here at noon and decide who won then.” She pulled Qian YuYou along and disappeared out of everyone’s sight.
She knew that there was a mysterious gift waiting for her in the center of the forest. She just didn’t know exactly what it was.
The other vampire guests made their way into the forest one by one. Only Burton remained in the original spot.
He needed the spirit stone to help maintain his strength. He definitely can’t let someone still it away. His eyes were bloodshot as he headed into the forest.
XunMi and Qian YuYou were currently stopped at a small brook. With a wave of her hand, the trickling water became stilled and displayed the current scene at the center of the forest.
The image wasn’t as XunMi predicted, however. There wasn’t anyone waiting to ambush there. There was also no traps. It was completely tranquil. But the more normal the situation was, the more irregular it truly was. There wasn’t even a single animal around, it was obviously suspicious.
“King, Queen. The majority of the humans have been sent away now. There’s only a few near the center of the forest are still here.” You JiuXiao silently appeared behind the two of them and respectfully spoke.
Qian YuYou had made it abundantly clear already: he’s finally accepted the position as King.
Thus, they all must change their way of addressing him as well. Although they all thought of Ancestor as a madman, they also knew that no one would dare question his strength. The vampire clan finally has a King, the supreme position is no longer empty.
Qian YuYou tapped the surface of the water twice. The scene quickly changed within the water. The water screen split into four smaller frames, each displaying a different image. The most captivating scene was the one including two men and a woman.
The woman and one of the men was familiar to them. But who is this random masked man?
“Where’s Prince Klos?” XunMi spoke.
“I split with him to look for the humans. He should be on his way back too.” You JiuXiao stopped for a moment before responding.
XunMi rubbed her fingers, her eyes deep with thought. “Really?” She felt like there was something wrong.
Qian YuYou swept his hand over the water, causing the scene on the water to change again.
