While Mu Lan hid behind the pillar she heard some guards talking in a very low voice. She held her breath.
One man said, "It was a good thing that we have finished the task before the team came." His tone carried a sense of joy.
Mu Lan peeped and four men wearing completely black clothes. 'They are somewhat wearing assassin's uniform.' She thought to herself. She had seen the uniform of elite force of Mu Family who were mercenaries.
Another man said, "Yes, now all they will find is the dead body."
Someone else joined in the discussion. "We have to tell the master the Mu Liang is dead. We are getting more money this time." He grinned.
For a second, Mu Lan's head turned blank. Her eyes were open, but she couldn't see anything; her ears were in place, but she couldn't hear any sound; she had sense, but she couldn't feel anything. Her whole body trembled. She heart suddenly felt empty. She couldn't breathe properly.
