Quick Transmigrating Second Female Lead's Counterattack Chapter 86
XunMi’s attention shifted towards the water. Her eyes brightened as she stared at Qian YuYou’s hand, wanting to pull it close to carefully study it.
She had magic. Her dear husband’s ability seems to be similar to hers then. She really wanted to compete to see who’s abilities were more powerful.
But the obvious guess would be her husband, if only because she was still young compared to his thousands of years.
“They’re leaving,” Qian YuYou pointed at one of the four frames displayed. The other three were filled with people, both vampires and vampire hunters carrying silver guns. Their attitude alone made it obvious that they’re collaborating together.
“That direction? That should be heading towards the way we came in from,” XunMi carefully analyzed the geography of the forest. Although she was absolute trash with maps, her sense of direction was still reliable.
“Be careful!” You JiuXiao suddenly shouted. He had only turned his head for a second when he saw a shadow quickly appear near them. He had been prepared to attack, but that shadow disappeared in a flash.
XunMi and Qian YuYou had sensed that person’s presence as soon as they charged towards them. However, the person wasn’t emitting a murderous air. Thus, XunMi and Qian YuYou had decided not to attack immediately.
When the person completely disappeared, XunMi pursed her lips. What was these people’s plan? Why isn’t getting more and more confusing to understand?
Qian YuYou clasped XunMi’s hand and silently erected a protective shield, “Let’s go.”
You JiuXiao had been about to follow the two when he saw someone that shouldn’t be here.
“Ci!” The person lying underneath the tree over there was the Nangong Ci! Shouldn’t she be in the Wild Rose Castle?
XunMi turned her head, her eyebrows furrowed. She pulled Qian YuYou with her as she headed towards Nangong Ci.
You JiuXiao had already picked up Nangong Ci. As he pulled her closer to his body, a sharp pain stabbed into his chest, causing him to spit blood. “You’re…not…who are you?”
Qian YuYou swiftly pulled XunMi behind him. However, he wasn’t quick enough. Pitch blackness enveloped them, swallowing all remnants of light.
After a long time, XunMi finally opened her eyes again. It was still black everywhere. Moving around her joints, she looked at her surroundings. Based on her observations, it seems that she was lying in a coffin.
She pushed the cover off and sat up. She really was in a coffin. Moreover, if she was seeing correctly, she was in her own room.
Her bare feet felt their way around the familiar carpeting. XunMi was a bit dazed. How did she get here? The clothes she was wearing, the rooms’ decorations. Everything was exactly the same as when she first arrived her. But she was clearly just at the little brook in the forest just now. Could it have been a dream?
No, no. Her lover, her friends, all that wasn’t a dream. THIS was the dream. Or, to put it more accurately, this was the illusion.
Wake up, wake up. She needed to find her husband.
Darkness once again invaded her vision. This time, XunMi quickly opened her eyes again. Green peach blossom eyes reflected calmness as she gazed at the sight before her. This was still the same small brook. Her lover was still holding her hand. Currently, he was staring at her with concern.
You JiuXiao was completely unconscious, sporting a large bloody hole on his chest.
Luckily, his heart was stolen away or else no one could save him.
Although vampires were a powerful race, they would still meet immediate death without their hearts. Technically, vampires weren’t exactly just ‘dead’. When someone was transformed into a vampire, their heart slows down almost to a stop. Normal humans would naturally be unable to detect a heartbeat. But they still had a heartbeat, albeit a minimal one. The heart was still their most fatal point.
“You, are you okay?” XunMi let go of Qian YuYou’s hand, looking him over up and down. After making sure he didn’t have any injuries, the fear in her heart finally calmed.
“Don’t worry, nothing happened. That one laying on the floor over there is in a much worse condition.” Qian YuYou patted XunMi’s hand in comfort.
“He isn’t suited to stay here. I’ll first get someone to send him back.” XunMi pulled out a flute from her waist belt and blew. Five simple notes later, RuiEn and Larkin appeared before them.
XunMi handed You JiuXiao off to them and headed towards the center of the forest with Qian YuYou. She now had a faint guess that there was another traitor by their side.
More accurately, there was a spy.
During the time that Nangong Ci had arrived at the Wild Rose Castle, she had never ventured outside. In the time that XunMi herself wasn’t there, You JiuXiao was there. The whole time, the Wild Rose Castle had been protected and closed off tightly.
Only Wild Rose Castle’s people knew of Nangong Ci’s existence. Even that man in black that infiltrated a few days ago didn’t get into the actual castle.
More importantly, only a very small group of people knew that Nangong Ci was their weak spot. The only people at Wild Rose Castle was her group. She wasn’t the spy, nor was her husband.
She believed in RuiEn. You JiuXiao liked Nangong Ci so he wouldn’t do this. Larkin was You JiuXiao’s person so the chances of his betrayal was low but still possible. The only one left after that was Prince Klos, the person that You JiuXiao brought along.
The enigma continued to expand in her mind.
As soon as they stepped into the center of the forest, an invisible magnetic field parted. XunMi and Qian YuYou squeezed their interlocked hands as a warning to each other.
“Come out, I know you’re all here.” Since they’ve all gathered, then they might as well put things out in the open now. It had been quite uncomfortable for her waiting for them to reveal their secret plan this whole time.
Ye ZhiYi’s silhouette walked out from behind a tree. She was once again wearing that black bat mask. She had a silver cross hanging across her neck as usual.
That night, XunMi wasn’t able to get a good look. Today, she realized that the girl’s eyes were a shocking blood red. The color represented her status as a fallen vampire.
“Prince Burton, are you hoping that we will fight each other and then you will reap the benefits afterwards?” Rubbing the flute in her hand, her eyes stared determinedly ahead.
The term vampire seemed to have been perfectly suited for her: elegance, charm, and aloofness could all be found within Mi.
Ye ZhiYi froze. She suddenly remembered. In a flash, she had kicked out the hidden Burton from behind another tree.
Burton was very angry. This Ye ZhiYi definitely was someone with a longer list of failures than successes. If it wasn’t because he wanted to borrow her strength, he definitely wouldn’t have chosen to work with her.
The speed of rank upgrades was much faster for fallen ones than for vampires. Thus, their strength was even more powerful. Because fallen ones couldn’t part with blood, fresh blood was the ultimate source of their strength.
Although Burton had always drank fresh blood, ,he didn’t want to become a fallen one.
Fallen ones will eventually lose rationality and completely become a wild beast that only knows to drink blood. He hasn’t even become the King of the world yet, so he wasn’t in a hurry to ruin his own future like that.
XunMi took in Burton’s angry face with satisfaction, resisting the urge to clap her hands together.
