Naked Sword Art - Chapter 282 - Gao Li Wen
Ye Ming looked down at the girl pointing at her before walking towards her, but it was the expressionless look on Ye Ming’s face that gave them all the chills.
“My name is Gao Zexian. Gao – Ze – Xian!” She fearlessly pronounced every syllable of her name as if to warn Ye Ming that she wasn’t someone she could mess with.
Gao Zexian was a 20 years old Tiger-Class disciple, so Ye Ming could understand why she was such an arrogant girl. However, she also knew that wasn’t the reason why she was acting so confident right now.
Ye Ming created a yellow spirit orb in one hand, then the girls watched in horror as it slowly grew in size and became red. If there was any doubt in their minds that Ye Ming would kill Gao Zexian before, there certainly wasn’t any doubt now. However, that was exactly what Ye Ming was trying to make them believe.
As the spirit orb grew larger, all Gao Zexian could think about was her older brother. She missed him, she wanted to find his killer, so she didn’t want to die here.
‘Dammit, where is she!?’ Gao Zexian thought as she started to sweat worriedly.
Ye Ming raised her arm as if she was finally going to attack, but instead of attacking Gao Zexian, she quickly turned around then thrusted her arm in a different direction.
At first, the girls were confused as to why Ye Ming turned around, but not even a fraction of a second later they watched as Ye Ming used her red spirit orb to clash against a bright golden whip that was coming her way.
‘[ Golden Whip! ]’ the girls thought in excitement.
The shockwave from the two powerful attacks immediately destroyed all of Ye Ming’s clones. As soon as it did, the 4 Tiger-Class disciples got up from the ground then quickly regrouped.

Ye Ming knew there was no way that a couple of Tiger-Class disciples could have beaten Yan Mei, so instead of waiting for the real opponent to attack her by surprise, Ye Ming used Gao Zexian as bait to draw her out.
The woman holding the golden whip finally walked out of the shadows, revealing who she was.
“Gao Liwen,” Ye Ming said with a bit of a frown.
Gao Li Wen:
> 1st Division, Phoenix-Class disciple.
> Currently ranked 11th on the Trial Pod test.
If Xiao Fang was here he would recognize her as the girl that made a scene about losing her top 10 position on the trial pod test during their first general lecture. (Chapter 219: Silk Ribbon)
Ye Ming didn’t expect someone as powerful as her to be their team leader.
Guild could only recruit a limited number of disciples from each Class, so if a guild recruits 10 Phoenix-Class disciples, then they wouldn’t be able to invite any more, but if a Tiger-Class disciple is recruited then later becomes a Phoenix-Class disciple, they would still only be considered a Tiger-Class recruit.
This was the reason why guilds always looked for disciples with the highest potential and put a lot of effort into training them. To do that, every Phoenix-Class disciple in the guild would have 4 underlings to mentor and look after. In this case, Gao Liwen was the mentor of these 4 girls.
“I guess the rumors about you were true, you really are the Midnight Assassin,” Gao Liwen said. “Tell me, how did you avoid getting caught by the Disciplinary Department?” She asked.
“I don’t know what you’re talking about,” Ye Ming replied.
At first, Ye Ming couldn’t understand why someone as strong as Gao Liwen would even bother to sneak attack her considering how strong she was, but listening to her words now she finally understood.
“Oh, common. If you tell me I promise I’ll keep it a secret,” Gao Liwen asked again.
Ye Ming’s frown deepened as she replied with the same words, “I already told you, I don’t know what you’re talking about.”
Gao Liwen’s fake smile finally disappeared.
“Then perhaps this will refresh your memory,” Gao Liwen said as she raised her intimidating [ Golden Whip ] up in the air.
“Ye Ming, run!” Yan Mei screamed.
Yan Mei didn’t need to say anything because Ye Ming already knew how crazy strong that whip was.
[ Illusory Whip of a 1000 Transformations ]:
The [ Illusory Whip of a 1000 Transformations ] technique was one of the reasons why the Black Paradise sect was recognized as the strongest sect in the province. Although the full technique was only taught to disciples in the Core Court, the girls in the White Jade guild had access to the first 3 levels of this technique.
The White Jade guild also created the Illusory Whip Club as a way to scout for talent. However, only the girls who were from the Gao Family clan or were a subsidiary power to them were allowed to join.
Since the Lai Family clan was a subsidiary power to the Gao, of course Lai Yun was allowed to join the Illusory Whip Club. However, despite learning the Illusory Whip technique to the 2nd level [ Silver Whip ], she still couldn’t get accepted into the White Jade guild because she was a bit older than the other girls that were able to do the same thing.
Ye Ming immediately turned to flee, but Gao Liwen didn’t let her escape.
“Where do you think you’re going,” Gao Liwen said.
