“In fact, I only killed three Senior Immortals who abused me along with their majestic beings. Nothing else. They also kept forcing me to say that I was acting murderously under my master’s commands, which was not the truth. I was only there to hunt. I refused to admit the accusations, so they tortured me.”
Gu Xijiu’s eyes darkened. Gently, she patted its shells to comfort it. “I understand the whole situation now. You may rest.”
The mussel thought that she was going to give it a good scolding, but she did not. Instead, she remained gentle on it. “Master, are you not mad at me?” The mussel asked while trembling in fear.
Gu Xijiu gave it a half smile and said, “What is there to be mad about? Should I be mad at you because of your wild, violent temper as a result of some wicked spell? Is it about the three majestic beings that came to provoke you first? Mussel, I have told you not to kill any majestic beings of level seven and above, but it does not mean that I do not allow you to kill them when you are clearly defending yourself.”
Astonished, the mussel finally realized that the whole scenario was rather strange when the killing spree happened. It could barely control its violent temper. After being greeted by the three Senior Immortals with a stream of abuse, it could no longer hold itself back.
It could not help but wonder how Gu Xijiu found out that it was poisoned and under siege.
Gu Xijiu gave it a tight smile. “Silly, I have checked on the signs that you left behind at the place where you encountered with the three Senior Immortals.”
Experienced, she could roughly get a picture of how the fight went on based solely on the signs and traces. Also, she could tell that there was an ambush.
Every move that the three Senior Immortals aimed at the mussel was lethal. Every single strike was deadly. If the mussel had not swallowed them, it would be dead. Even without the wicked spell, the mussel would still have to give it all in the fight, without letting the enemies off lightly.
She told the mussel not to kill the innocent, not that it was not allowed to defend itself.
“Mussel, I will always return kindness tenfold, same goes for humiliation. This is my principle of life. Have you forgotten about it?”
The mussel’s eyes opened widely in admiration. It repeatedly nodded in approval.
“Good. You may take a rest now. I shall take over from here and get revenge on your behalf.” Gu Xijiu reassured the mussel.
The mussel’s blood burned with righteous ardor. It nodded eagerly in response.
Gu Xijiu finally turned to look at Tie Liu and the other three men. “It is your turn now, all four of you.”
Her voice was calm, but the look in her eyes was lethal. “You have to pay the price for the evil plan that you have plotted against me!”
All four of them were utterly shocked.
Tie Zheng responded quickly, “Don’t you try to make slanderous accusations against us! You are the one who supports the malign nature of the monstrous mussel. We were only acting under orders. How is that a plot? If you had not shown up, we would never know that you were the master of the mussel.”
“Acting under orders? If those were really your orders, why didn’t you send it back to the ninth heaven for a proper joint hearing? Why did you come here to torture it privately without a legal trial? ”
“About that… we are here because we have other matters to attend to. We have to stay for two days, so we might as well interrogate the mussel here to ease the emperor’s mind about the massacre.”
“How was it an interrogation when everything was scripted, even with the involvement of brutal torments?”
“We… We have to. It has killed so many innocent majestic beings, messing the order of the Saha World. It behaved so violently. There is absolutely no wrong with the use of torture.”
Gu Xijiu gave them a threatening look. “You have been saying that it is the killer of the majestic beings. Where is the proof?”
“We saw it fighting against three majestic beings with our own eyes. It even swallowed them.”
“How did you know that it was not defending itself? How did you make sure that it was also the killer of other majestic beings?”
