Chapter 207.1: Come Here, Let Me Tell You A Secret
Besides just taking one step after another to scale your way up to the Fleeting Cloud Fortress, there is another secret passage that would take you all the way up to the top. But this secret passage was known only to one person, Ji Yan Long alone. He was just a regular man with no cultivated powers, and he could naturally not be able to compare with all the others who hold deep powers of cultivation.
Hence, he was the only person who used the secret passage to go up there, while all the others including the Carefree Valley’s internal members had to reach the Fleeting Cloud Fortress based on their own strength, with no exception of favouritism.
As men and women moved out separately, Qing Bei was naturally unable to follow Qing Yu. He could not help but look worriedly at her. His lips moved slightly, like he wanted to say something, but someone then hooked an arm around his shoulders from behind, and pulled him along together. He turned his head to look, and saw the man’s violet eyes sparkling with an extraordinary light under the night, exceptionally beautiful to see.
“I’ll be watching over this kid here. You just remember to be careful with everything you do.” Lou Jun Yao curved up his lips, as he gazed tenderly at the young lady. “If you come to encounter any kind of danger that you are not able to resolve, you have the communication device I gave you don’t you? Remember to call out to me.”
The expression on Qing Yu’s face changed slightly, but she did not say anything and just nodded her head slightly.
Although this fella usually acted a little odd and was even often thuggish at times, he had never held back when it came to helping her. In regards to that point, Qing Yu was really rather grateful to him.
Just when she was about to go in through the entrance, the man suddenly called out to her.
Qing Yu turned herself around slightly, and looked at him in bewilderment.
Lou Jun Yao laughed, the sound becoming exceptionally magnetic and melodious under the night. He then asked her in a soft voice: “About the Fleeting Cloud Fortress’ legend. Do you believe it?”
Qing Yu blinked her eyes, rather surprised that he would show interest in that, but she still replied truthfully. “With things like that, it’s true if one believes in it and false if one doesn’t, isn’t it?”
The smile at the corners of the man’s lips deepened. “I feel that it’s rather interesting though. After we reach the top, I have something to tell you.”
“What is it that you cannot tell me now?” Qing Yu raised an eyebrow and asked.
“I can’t now.” The man’s face showed a mysterious smile and he ignored the young lady after that, grabbing at Qing Bei to go into the entrance on the other side.
Qing Yu could not help but feel a little frustrated. [What does that fella want to tell her?]
That thought was still lingering in her mind when a gust of wind blew past her. She turned around and saw a slim seductive looking figure passing beside her, white robes billowing, carrying an air of noble aloofness that made people not dare to get too close.
[Yan Ning Luo?]
Qing Yu arched up an eyebrow, but did not notice anything strange. Mu Lai and Ming Yi Yi came walking over from the side right after that, each of them holding one side of her, and Qing Yu did not pay any more attention to it.
