On the other side, Qing Yu and Lou Jun Yao took about another hour before they reached the bottom of that steep cliff.
But who would have known that the bottom would be just one large swathe of icy and torrential waters which the two of them fell right into. It was right at that moment that a large splash of water thrown up by the raging wind crashed down upon them, turning those two people into thoroughly soaked ducks.
Lou Jun Yao was dazed for a moment as water dripped down from the ends of his hair hanging down his temples by the side of his face. As a mighty lord who held reign over a good part of the lofty Cloud Heaven, this was the very first time he found himself in such a sad and pathetic state.
The thick and dense lashes had water droplets sprinkled on them and seen against those beautifully clear violet eyes and the devilishly handsome countenance that held a slightly stunned expression, it all came together to become a highly alluring sight to see.
Qing Yu could not help but to burst out laughing looking at that face. “Hahaha….. Look at you….. You’d really….. Haha….. incite people to commit crime you know…..”
That was raw and naked mockery.
Lou Jun Yao raised an eyebrow and pulled the young lady who could not stop laughing to his side, and he then held the young lady’s hand right against his drenched chest which had become exposed when the robes covering it had been thrown into disarray by the rush of water earlier.
The warm skin under her palm throbbed with the strong beat of his heart, causing her to subconsciously pull her hand back. But despite her struggling, the large slender hand holding hers did not move in the slightest.
Qing Yu arched up an eyebrow as she looked at him. “What?”
“Didn’t you say you’d commit a crime against me? I’m merely cooperating with you.” Lou Jun Yao answered with a straight face.
Qing Yu was at a loss for words. “…..”
[This man is really becoming more and more boorish. Is he going to tease her everytime she tries to make fun of him?]
“Alright already. We don’t even know where we’ve fallen down to and you’re still in the mood to be so glib.” Qing Yu stared helplessly at him, as she squirmed her way out from under his demonic claws.
Lou Jun Yao smiled. “With you accompanying me, what is there to fear?”
Upon saying that, he then opened his mouth to say: “Look, we can get ashore over there.”
Following the direction his finger was pointing into, Qing Yu raised her eyes to look, and saw that they had come to an end of the waters, but as it was still rather dark, she had not really noticed it.
After realizing that, Qing Yu then said in a low voice: “Let’s get ashore quickly. We don’t know what other dangers could be lurking within these waters so we should get out as soon as we can.”
The two of them were adept in the Water element and they swam ashore very quickly.
They were still wearing the purple clothes they wore when they came to the Carefree Valley and Lou Jun Yao went on to summon his spirit powers to dry their thoroughly soaked clothes. They soon became fresh and clean as new and as he turned his eyes to look at Qing Yu, he discovered that the young lady’s face looked a little pale.
