Also, many thanks to everyone who bought me coffee (*?*)

This was an old street with few pedestrians and few shops. Further ahead was an official road, with wheat fields on both sides.

Thats right, even the capital had such fields, but they were all in relatively remote areas.

"What a good place for an ambush..."

This was an instinct she developed during her previous life as an assassin to subconsciously judge whether a location was suitable for a crime upon seeing it.

However, as soon as this thought flashed through her mind, Gu Jiao paused.

Something was wrong.

Very wrong.

It was the intuition of an assassin.

Gu Jiao put down the window curtain and lifted the front curtain, shooting a silver needle which hit the servant leading the way in front of them.

The servant let out a cry and fell off his horse.

"Young Miss Gu, you" Little San was dumbfounded.

"Turn around!" Gu Jiao didn't have time to explain.

Little San was truly someone who had seen the world with Gu Jiao, he did not drop the ball in a critical moment. If it were the Second Owner, he might have passed out already.

He didn't ask why they were turning around as he had trust in Gu Jiao.

Unfortunately, it was too late. The black-clad men lying in ambush on the field embankment rushed toward Gu Jiao's carriage like released arrows.

Each person held a gleaming cold blade in their hand, with sharp gazes and murderous aura!

Gu Jiao could tell that there were ten people without counting.

They really thought highly of her, sending so many people to kill her!

"You go first!"

Gu Jiao jumped off the carriage.

Little San didn't act pretentious as he left immediately. He knew his own weight, he had no martial arts skills, and staying behind would only add a burden to Young Miss Gu.

It was better to quickly report to the authorities, maybe they could bring reinforcements for Young Miss Gu.

Of course, it would be nice if he could distract and lead away a few assassins too.

For Young Miss Gus sake, he would risk his life!

"Come! Assassins!"

He tightened the reins and looked back.

Oh, none of them had caught up to him...

Gu Jiao was surrounded by the black-clad men.

She scanned them with a cold gaze, "Just attack together, one by one is too tedious."

The black-clad men all showed a disdainful look and charged towards Gu Jiao with their swords.

"Just in time to test my black gunpowder." Gu Jiao narrowed her eyes slightly. What a pity she only had three black gunpowder balls and didnt know how powerful they were.

In her previous life, she had played with a kind of small firecracker that could explode when thrown on the ground without being lit.

The black gunpowder balls she made were similar in principle to that small firecracker, but more powerful.

Gu Jiao took out one black gunpowder ball and threw it fiercely at one of the black-clad men, then there was a loud bang, and the black-clad man was blown unconscious.

So-so.

Gu Jiao wasnt too satisfied nor too disappointed.

The reason she blew herself up to the sky during her experiments was mainly due to the large amount of materials used. It wasnt too bad that such a small ball could knock someone unconscious.

These assassins had never seen such a strange hidden weapon before. It had a magnificent momentum and a swift and fierce power, shocking everyone greatly.

The crowd looked at Gu Jiao with fear.

Gu Jiao coldly hooked up the corner of her lips, then grabbed the blade of one of them while knocking the person away with one punch.

It was only then that the rest of them came back to their senses and charged towards Gu Jiao again.

However, the explosion just now completely destroyed their morale. Gu Jiao dealt with them quickly, and after the last assassin fell, she lightly clapped her hands to dust them off.

But what nobody expected was that another dangerous aura was suddenly approaching.

What a terrifying aura!

Gu Jiao's heart trembled, and she couldn't avoid the other partys attack.

He was too fast!

At the critical moment, a sword light chopped down and blocked the assassins attack. The newcomer also extended another arm and hugged Gu Jiao's waist, rushing backwards with her.

"Wait for me here!"

After saying that, Gu Changqing drew his sword and rushed towards the assassin.

This was the first time Gu Jiao had seen Gu Changqing fight in real sense, and he was much stronger than she had imagined. But he was still not the opponent of the other party.

He was someone that even Gu Jiao felt a little intimidated by.

This person's strength was stronger than herself in her past life.

How could this be? Who on earth was this person?

Gu Changqing took a hit from the other party and stabilized himself with his sword.

Gu Jiao took out the last two pieces of black gunpowder ball and threw them at the enemy!

The person thought it was a normal hidden weapon so he slashed them with his sword, as a result, there was a loud bang, and it was unclear whether the person was frightened or shaken by the black gunpowder.

In any case, he took several steps back, and a hint of surprise flickered in his cold eyes.

Not even two could knock him unconscious?

Truly the best among the experts.

Gu Jiao pretended to reach into her pocket and continued to search, but she had already run out of black gunpowder balls. She just hoped to bluff the other person, and fortunately, she succeeded.

The other party gave Gu Jiao a cold glance before using his qinggong to leave.

Gu Changqing was looking at the direction the other party left when he suddenly covered his chest and spat out a mouthful of blood.

Gu Jiao hurried over and checked his pulse.

Gu Changqing waved his hand, "I'm fine, just a minor internal injury. It will be okay after I rest for a while."

He wiped the blood from the corner of his mouth and put away his long sword, looking at Gu Jiao and asking, "Are you okay?"

"I'm fine." Gu Jiao shook her head.

Gu Changqing whistled and his horse galloped over.

The siblings mounted the horse.

"What about these people?" Gu Jiao looked at the black-clad men who had fainted on the ground.

Gu Changqing, who was experienced, said, "They won't reveal much. The person we encountered earlier was the key. These are just some small-time thugs who do things for money. They don't even know the identity of their employer."

Gu Jiao nodded.

The siblings returned to Bishui Alley.

Old Chief had just returned from the Imperial Academy and saw Gu Changqing's pale face. He furrowed his brows and asked, "What happened?"

Gu Changqing looked at Gu Jiao and said, "We encountered a group of assassins."

"Assassins?" Old Chief's gaze swept over the siblings, "Were they trying to assassinate you or JiaoJiao?"

"Me." Gu Jiao truthfully replied.

She dismounted from the horse and handed her hand to Gu Changqing to help him down.

Old Chief looked around, took the reins of the horse, and said to the two, "Follow me."

"You mean that person's martial arts may be unbeatable even by your grandfather?"

After hearing the account of the incident, Old Chief deeply furrowed his brows, "That's impossible... How could your grandfather's skills be inferior to an assassin's?"

"That person's aura is very..." Gu Jiao wanted to say familiar, because she smelled the same kind of aura on the other person as her, someone who was also a killing machine in her past life.

"Weird." Gu Changqing finished the sentence for Gu Jiao, "Different from any expert I have ever encountered. Different martial arts style, different internal strength, and... he had a tattoo on his face!"

The person was wearing a mask, but Gu Jiao threw a strange hidden weapon that shattered a part of the mask.

He saw a part of the tattoo.

"What kind of tattoo?" Old Chief took out a brush and paper, "Draw it for me."

Gu Changqing drew half of a tail.

Old Chief's expression changed, "It's the Dragon Shadow Guard!"

"What's the Dragon Shadow Guard?" Gu Jiao asked.

Gu Changqing had already figured it out, and his expression also became solemn, "It's the death warriors of the late Emperor."

Old Chief pondered and said, "The late Emperor secretly trained a group of death warriors to deal with Zhuang Jinse. The youngest was only five years old. He passed them on to His Majesty before he died."

Gu Changqing frowned, "Is His Majesty trying to kill JiaoJiao?"

Old Chief waved his hand, "No. His Majesty loves JiaoJiao very much and would never harm her. His Majesty transferred the Dragon Shadow Guards to another person in order to protect her from Zhuang Jinses persecution."

Gu Changqing was stunned, "That person is"

Old Chief said solemnly, "Imperial Concubine Dowager Jing."

Gu Changqing took a deep breath!
