Chapter 238.4: Daggers Hidden Behind A Smile
But he recognized who Bai Zhi Yan was and he was not worried that the man would do anything to harm him, though the world that was completely foreign to him and being surrounded by so many curious and appraising eyes all around made Qing Bei unable to help but open his mouth to ask: “Where is this place?”
‘Cloud Heaven.” Bai Zhi Yan glanced at him and replied.
Hearing that, Qing Bei was startled a moment and it took him a while to recover. “Is Qing Yu here as well?”
He recalled that Qing Yu had told him several days back that she was making a trip into the Faint Mist Sect’s forbidden grounds to investigate a few clues she had gathered about their mother, and she had not yet returned from there ever since.
He was starting to become worried that she might have met with some mishap and was thinking to go look for her in there. Bai Zhi Yan who had disappeared for quite a long while then appeared suddenly, and brought him to this place.
All this time, the man was no longer a stranger to him because of Qing Yu but he had not interacted with the man all that much either.
Hence, he guessed that the reason the man had brought him here must have something to do with Qing Yu’s disappearance.
Although he had always said that he would make his own way here to this place one day, he had not thought that he would come here so suddenly like this, into this place of legend, where super powerful pugilists exist.
It was all rather unbelievable.
Bai Zhi Yan was a little surprised by his reaction but he still nodded smilingly to the youth as he said: “The young lass has indeed been brought here into Cloud Heaven but she isn’t here in the Dark Lands with us.”
“Where is she then?” When Qing Bei heard that Qing Yu was brought here by someone else, she would naturally be in a bad situation, so he immediately became worried for her safety.
Bai Zhi Yan shook his head with a laugh. “Rest assured! With Lou Jun Yao here, nothing will happen to her. We are here in our own territory and anyone who seeks to make a single move against our people will first have to seek the Dark Lands’ permission first.”
Qing Bei nimbly captured the most important point within Bai Zhi Yan’s words.
“When did Qing Yu become one of your people?” Qing Bei’s brows had creased up, instinctively disliking those words.
Maybe it was because he had been so used to having Qing Yu assume a highly important position in his heart, and it felt as if someone was going to take her away from his world at that moment.
Bai Zhi Yan was a man who had already lived more than two hundred years, so how could he possibly not have detected the change in the kid’s demeanor. Bai Zhi Yan could not help but laugh and look at Qing Bei and say: “The little lass is now inseparable like glue with Lou Jun Yao! Are you afraid that she will neglect you? Isn’t it better now that you have one more person that cares for you as well?”
“I do not need it.” Qing Bei’s voice was gloomy, his eyes turned away to the side as his heart felt rather uncomfortable.
The man beside him then went on to say: “I’ve brought him back here, so I’ll make a move now.”
“Thanks.” This was another person’s voice, low and magnetic, filled with an allure that was impossible to disregard.
