But this time, even she herself was feeling a little flustered, fearful that she might not be able to get out of this unscathed.
“Xi Zhan Chen, listen to me. We’re merely strangers who recently became acquainted by chance and as the greatest assassin, you should probably be rather temperamental, and wouldn’t like to get yourself dragged into other people’s business.” Qing Yu said unfeelingly, her tone a little forceful.
But how could Xi Zhan Chen not know that she was just trying to anger him, and was trying to make him leave on his own accord?
“You do not have to worry about that. I will not be leaving unless it’s together.” His attitude was resolute.
Qing Yu was almost about to explode with anger, but just at that moment, the mirthful voice of a man sounded out lazily: “Little fox?”
Qing Yu was startled and it was only till the voice called out to her again that she was able to react. She pulled out the small and exquisite little purple crystal ball from her hip and what met her eyes was the man’s handsome face that seemed to have been crafted by the hands of the gods.
It had been at least twenty days since Lou Jun Yao left for Cloud Heaven, and having not seen her for quite a long while, he had started to miss her a little. An idea then came to him and he came to use the communication crystal ball, which would allow him to see whether the Little Fox had lost any weight recently.
With this one look, he discovered that she did not seem to be in the Faint Mist Sect, as the surroundings of the place she was in looked highly unfamiliar.
“Where are you?” Lou Jun Yao asked in bewilderment.
Qing Yu then answered: “This is the Faint Mist Sect’s forbidden grounds.”
Lou Jun Yao was slightly taken aback a moment before he went on to say: “Why would you go there? Did you encounter any danger? You’d better get out of there quick as the place feels a little evil. I do not know what kind of evil creature is kept in there and you would not be able to handle it on your own.”
Qing Yu sighed, and said a little gloomily: “It’s a long story, and I seemed to have run into something that’s a little troublesome right now. I don’t know whether I have come to wake something up but a chill feeling is running down my back and it seems like I….. cannot walk away from it.”
That’s right, unable to walk.
Hence she had asked Xi Zhan Chen to leave. Something must have locked her in somehow and that was why she had suddenly stopped walking just now, as she was unable to take another step forward.
Lou Jun Yao’s brows furrowed up. “The Lightning Blaze Unicorn should have followed you in and he will find you very soon. Wait for me to come over and do not disconnect the communication device yet.”
The young lady on the other end nodded her head, and it looked like she was going to say something when a thick fog suddenly rose up inside the crystal ball that blurred out everything, making it impossible for him to see at all.
Lou Jun Yao’s face immediately turned dark and his voice rose in pitch. “Little Fox, are you alright?”
There was no response from the other side. Even their voices could no longer be heard. Lou Jun Yao’s fists clenched up tightly and the air around him surged turbulently.
“My Lord, you just got back and your injuries from before still have not fully recovered. You cannot take on another journey…..”
Standing guard on one side, Yue Ji’s voice rang out persuasively.
But the moment she lifted her head up to look at the man who was supposed to be seated high up on the primary seat, she found it already empty.
At that speed, he had probably torn open a dimensional portal to go straight into the lower realm.
Yue Ji could not help but creased her brows together.
