Out of the Ying family's people, the one Wu Qingniang feared most was Great Qin's Legatee. Right now, with Great Qin's Legatee's power, he didn't fear a single faction in the world. His name was a synonym for terror.
Wu Qingniang had no idea what his attitude towards the Ying family was like; if she offended Great Qin's Legatee because of this, things would be quite bad. The pressure that Great Qin's Legatee gave her was immense, and offending him was ten times worse than severing the Wu family's ties with the Ying family.
Did she really have to offend the Ying family, and maybe even Great Qin's Legatee, for Zhao Fu?
The Wu family's people standing by the side couldn't stay silent anymore and said, "Qingniang, please calm down. Even though we'll support you in almost everything, we absolutely can't this time, so please think about the consequences. There are many men in the world, and with your qualities, you can definitely find tens of thousands of people who are many times better than him. Please think of the Wu family."
Hearing these people's words, Wu Qingniang couldn't help but hesitate. The weight of her family weighed down heavily on her; she couldn't just think about herself.
Seeing this, Ying Xi couldn't take it anymore and said, "How about everyone takes a step back? There's no need to kill Zhao Fu. We can simply make him leave the Ying family, nor should the Wu family take him in. Let him live or die according to his own abilities!"
Hearing Ying Xi's words, the leaders of the major branches all inwardly nodded - this was the best way to resolve this situation. For Ying Xi to propose such a thing, they were quite happy - after all, she was the concubine who they had chosen for Great Qin's Legatee, and if he decided to choose her, she could become an Empress in the future.
"No!" Wu Qingniang immediately refused. "Lil Xi, you should know that the Li family sent people to assassinate Zhao Fu. If he loses the Ying family's protection and isn't protected by the Wu family, he'll definitely die."
Ying Xi had almost forgotten about the Li family. If Zhao Fu lost the protection of the Ying family, it was quite likely that he would be killed by the Li family in less than a day.
"I can allow his bodyguard to continue protecting him and make sure that he's safe. Is that enough, Qingniang?" Ying Xi thought for a moment before making another suggestion.
Before Wu Qingniang could reply, Ying Qin immediately cut in and said, "Absolutely not! At most, I can agree with kicking him out instead of killing him, but how can we send a bodyguard to protect him? His life has nothing to do with the Ying family; just let the Li family's people kill him."
"Then I'll take him back to the Wu family!" Wu Qingniang's voice once again sounded out.
Ying Qin once again angrily yelled, "Wu Qingniang, do you really want to sever your relationship with the Ying family? Don't forget all of the benefits the Ying family has given to the Wu family."
Wu Qingniang's expression became incredibly cold. Hearing Ying Qin continuously push her, she made a decision - wasn't it just severing the relationship with the Ying family? What was such a big deal about it? Just as Wu Qingniang prepared to accept this, Ying Xi and the Wu family's people all tried to talk her out of it, but they were unable to change her mind.
"Alright, since your Ying family's like this, then our Wu family..."
"Qingniang!" However, before Wu Qingniang could finish speaking, a voice cut her off. Wu Qingniang turned to look at Zhao Fu, who gave her a reassuring smile, making her feel a warmth within her heart.
Seeing this, Ying Qin felt incredibly jealous and said, "Your Wu family..."
"Shut your mouth!" Before Ying Qin could finish his sentence, he was cut off by a sharp voice. Zhao Fu stepped out and looked like a different person as a noble aura, which he had suppressed this entire time, instantly covered his surroundings. Feeling this noble and supreme aura, countless people instinctively lowered their heads and felt a sense of respect as his surroundings fell silent.
Ying Qin had been completely suppressed by Zhao Fu's aura, and he was unable to say anything.
Even Wu Qingniang looked incredibly shocked upon seeing Zhao Fu seem to become a different person, and he was filled with dignity and nobility. In front of him, everything seemed incredibly lowly.
This was Zhao Fu's King's Might, and Wu Qingniang had never thought that Zhao Fu would have King's Might, nevermind one that was many times more powerful than hers at that.
"You dare to speak to me in such a way?" Ying Qin finally recovered and murderously looked at Zhao Fu. No one had ever spoken to him in such a way before as the number one successor of the Ying family.
"Just who do you think you are?" Zhao Fu icily glared at Ying Qin as he spoke disdainfully.
Hearing this, countless people felt terrified - no one would have thought that Zhao Fu, who hadn't spoken this entire time and seemed quite weak, would be so arrogant and speak like this to the Ying family's number one successor.
Wu Qingniang didn't think that Zhao Fu could say such things either.
This angered Ying Qin to the extreme, and he shrieked, "You... Guards, kill him!!"
The guards immediately walked up, but Zhao Fu coldly harrumphed and said, "You dare to do anything to me? Do you know who I am?"
His words were so imposing and filled with a mighty aura that the guards didn't dare to step up.
Zhao Fu ignored everyone and gave off that powerful King's Might as he walked forwards, and everyone naturally gave way to form a path.
"Scram!" Zhao Fu came up to Ying Qin and casually glanced at him before speaking.
Ying Qin's expression became savage, and he clenched his fist, preparing to attack Zhao Fu and kill Zhao Fu himself to relieve this hatred.
"Ying Qin, move aside!" At that moment, an elderly man's voice sounded out - it was one of the leaders of a major branch.
Now, all of the family leaders became serious and looked at Zhao Fu intently. They had never thought that such a minor figure could give off such a powerful King's Might - this wasn't something that ordinary people could have.
The leaders of the Ying family's major branches could tell that Zhao Fu had come up to speak with them, so they told Ying Qin to move aside. In the end, he could only grudgingly comply.
Zhao Fu went before these family leaders and calmly swept his gaze across them. Feeling that dignified and cold gaze, the family leaders didn't dare to look at him.
"Who are you, sir?" one of the family leaders asked.
Zhao Fu was now prepared to reveal his identity - as for the consequences, he would have to take each step as it came. He felt that he couldn't make any more trouble for Wu Qingniang because she had already done a lot for him.
As Zhao Fu had been walking up, Qiu Fengzi gradually woke up and looked at the scene unfolding before him as he asked, "What's going on?"
A few Taoists quickly came and explained to him the situation.
Qiu Fengzi immediately got to his feet and walked towards the Ying family's leaders as he loudly called out, "You mustn't kill him! He's someone with a massive King's Fate, and he will definitely be a King in the future. He's very important to Great Qin's Legatee, so you must not do anything to him!"
Zhao Fu felt quite surprised and couldn't understand why Qiu Fengzi was helping him hide his identity. After all, Qiu Fengzi most likely knew his true identity by now.
