Ye Xiuwen caught every moment of the frigid and vigilant gaze in Qin Lingyu’s eyes. In fact, Ye Xiuwen received Qin Lingyu’s lingering gaze with a cool stoicism, causing Qin Lingyu’s hatred to only burgeon and roil.
Just like how He Zhang had always despised Jun Linxuan’s existence, Qin Lingyu, as He Zhang’s First-Seat Disciple, had always hated and despised Ye Xiuwen’s existence as well.
Qin Lingyu was the Sect Leader’s First-Seat Disciple, and he was also the person most likely to become He Zhang’s successor as the next Sect Leader of the Dawn Sect. That said, he saw Ye Xiuwen as a threat because he knew that Ye Xiuwen was rather well-regarded by the rest of the members of the Dawn Sect. After all, Ye Xiuwen’s abilities exceeded even that of Qin Lingyu’s.
Thus, despite the fact that Ye Xiuwen hardly harboured any thoughts of usurping Qin Lingyu’s position as the successor, Qin Lingyu nevertheless considered Ye Xiuwen as his strongest rival and the greatest threat to him.
Furthermore, after the incident involving Jun Xiaomo during their travels, Qin Lingyu’s hatred for Ye Xiuwen had only continued to burgeon and fester.
Back then, Qin Lingyu had already been thinking of various ways and means of rescinding the marriage arrangement with Jun Xiaomo. That said, he loathed the thought that he might have been made into a cuckold by Jun Xiaomo before the rescission of their marriage arrangement. To make matters even worse, the target of her affection was his greatest rival for succession to boot!
Truth be told, news of Ye Xiuwen’s “death”...
