Chapter 14: Assassins and bad luck (Part 2)

It’s just a word, but his tone is so strong and overbearing. Making a person won’t dare to refuse. At the very least, Lin Chujiu also didn’t dare.

Lin Chujiu secretly took a deep breath and sat right in front of him. When Lin Chujiu meets Xiao Tianyao’s line of sight, she involuntarily sits up straight.

Facing such momentum, Lin Chujiu felt a great pressure and doesn’t even know where she will put her hands and feet.

Ben Wang (I) heard,” Xiao Tianyao ignored Lin Chujiu’s stiff behavior and slowly continued to say: “That you refused to marry this prince and even committed suicide, is that right?”

Xiao Tianyao asks slowly as if he only accidentally remembered those events. But, Lin Chujiu felt a chill behind her back.

He wants to deal with me now ah!

Lin Chujiu immediately shook her head and said: “There is no such thing.”

Just kidding! The previous owner of the body really said those words. But, how can she admit that ah?

Even a generous man wouldn’t feel happy if he heard that his future wife would rather die than to marry him.

“Is that so?” Xiao Tianyao just started tapping the handrail with his finger. But, Lin Chujiu couldn’t sense the joy or anger in his words. For no apparent reason, she felt that she is in a dangerous situation and quickly tried to explain: “I absolutely don’t feel that way inside my heart. Three days ago, I only made a scene to get more dowry.”

After all, that dowry will be her private money in the future.

“Oh … …” Xiao Tianyao said, while he looks up and looked at Lin Chujiu with his eyes that turn indifferent.

What does he want?

Lin Chujiu got puzzled and was trying to think to contribute half of her dowry to make him believe that she is not lying. When suddenly, she heard a sound on the roof. The bricks on the roof fell on the ground and with a *Thump* sound, a man dress in black jump down.

Huh?

Lin Chujiu got surprised with the sudden change of situation. She got stunned when she saw a man dress in black jump down as if he is not afraid to step on the broken pieces of bricks that fell on the ground.

“There are assassins, quickly … … protect the prince.” The guards on the outside quickly shout out loud. But, Lin Chujiu just silently stared at the sword in the hand of the assassin.

Assassins? What a bad luck?

Lin Chujiu look quickly to Xiao Tianyao and saw Xiao Tianyao’s face was as cold as an iceberg. His fingers slightly got stiff, but he didn’t say a word.

*Bang*

The new room’s door was kicked open, but the person who rushed in is not Xiao Tianyao’s bodyguard, but instead a black masked assassin. He pushes the sword in his hand straight toward Xiao Tianyao and said: “Dog Prince it’s time to die.”

The masked assassin got inside the room easily and Xiao Tianyao’s guardsmen were surrounded by other assassins from outside the mansion. Inside the new room, only Lin Chujiu and Xiao Tianyao can face the two assassins.

As soon as Xiao Tianyao heard the sound, his wheelchair moves forward and confronted the assassin that fell on the ground. His hand has long been holding a bronze sword but who knows when did that happen.

The sword of the masked assassin that threatened Xiao Tianyao was now only half an inch away from him. Lin Chujiu’s breathing becomes sluggish, but she is thinking about how she will help Xiao Tianyao. However, she saw Xiao Tianyao’s  wheelchair rotated quickly and blocked the sword.

With a *Clang* sound, Xiao Tianyao completely blocked the masked assassin’s fatal blow while pushing him forward. The masked assassin was forced to take a few steps back and could no longer wait for Xiao Tianyao to get tired. The assassin that fell on the ground put out another sword on his left side. This sword was glowing with a blue color, it must be drenched in poison.

Xiao Tianyao quickly responded. With just one tap on the wheel, the wheelchair rotated once again and he avoided another attack from the assassin. Lin Chujiu saw everything and got shocked.

The two assassins continued attacking Xiao Tianyao, but didn’t get a good result. Instead, Xiao Tianyao’s sword was able to scratch the assassin’s arm. However, the assassin didn’t retreat and confront him once again.

Because there are two assassins, Xiao Tianyao is in a very unfavorable situation. Lin Chujiu got worried but she is only like Jack of all trades master. So, she didn’t dare to step forward because she is afraid to die.

Fortunately, Xiao Tianyao is very tough and even though he is sitting in a wheelchair and it looks very inconvenient. The two assassins were still having a hard time on him.

Seeing this Lin Chujiu felt a bit peace in her mind. Honestly, she is not worried about Xiao Tianyao. What she is really worried about is if Xiao Tianyao died, these assassins will definitely kill her too.

Inside her heart, she really is praying for Xiao Tianyao to win. If Xiao Tianyao won, the chances for her to live is relatively high.

While no one is paying attention to her, Lin Chujiu went to a safe side to the room and quickly took off the wedding dress while looking for a weapon to protect herself.

This time, protecting herself is very important. Lin Chujiu knows very well that Xiao Tianyao will certainly not save her if the assassin suddenly attacks her.

Previously, Xiao Tianyao missed the auspicious hour of their wedding, use a big black sedan to meet her and ditch her to finish the ceremony alone. So obviously, this man hated her and doesn’t really want to marry her.

When it comes to this matter, Lin Chujiu understand it very well that Xiao Tianyao felt dissatisfied with her.

After all, Lin Chujiu was originally the crown prince’s fiancee. Although this thing is not known to the public, but the royal family is well informed. And because the Crown Prince is marrying another woman the emperor had given him the woman that the crown prince has discarded.

The emperor had done all these things to humiliate Prince Xiao Tianyao. But, if Xiao Tianyao is not crippled the emperor wouldn’t just randomly select a woman to marry him. Especially, a woman that he is not interested with.

Of course, the emperor didn’t only do these things to humiliate him. But also to let the world know that the prestigious God of War is now in the claws of a tiger and that tiger is no other than the emperor himself!

Knowing all those things, it would be really strange if Xiao Tianyao was looking forward to this wedding and was welcoming Lin Chujiu with full of warmth.

Lin Chujiu already felt good that Xiao Tianyao didn’t even secretly kill her. She didn’t expect that Xiao Tianyao will still have a good side, even though her presence will remind him over and over again about the humiliation that the emperor had given him.

But, she thinks that her life is getting more tragic. She received a body with poison and now she got involved in their conflict. She doesn’t want to join them, but she can’t avoid it.

After a while … … Lin Chujiu just sigh and pick up the rod of the steelyard scale. She grips her hand on to it tightly and hides in the corner while waiting for Xiao Tianyao’s guardsmen to deal with the assassins.

All the guardsmen in Prince Xiao Mansion are all well-known soldiers of war. But, they shouldn’t take these assassins lightly. Especially, there were many of them and their swords have poisons.

Although the assassins from the outside haven’t broken the defense of the guardsmen to enter the new room, but they couldn’t fight back so easily.

With the assassins large number and poisonous weapons they were really at disadvantage. After a while, Xiao Tianyao’s guardsmen started to fall one by one and the pressure on them increases.

That is not the right way to fight!

Although Lin Chujiu is acting stupid right now, but she understands that if there will be no reinforcements. Prince Xiao’s guardsmen won’t be able to hold much any longer. However… …

Reinforcements?

Lin Chujiu just want to say: “Ha ha ha … …”
