"Actually, my body is not much of a hindrance to me." When he saw that Gu Ruoyun was not angry with him, Qianbei Ye heaved a sigh of relief and said, "Ah, right. Didn't you want to visit the Xia family in Heaven City? I'll accompany you there."
Gu Ruoyun had only just put Mei Xue and the others back into Xiao Hei when she heard the man's voice from above. She was stunned but before she could react, a hand had reached out and wrapped itself around her waist. Before she knew it, they were flying into the air.
When Gu Ruoyun regained her senses, she realized that she was now right in front of the Xia family home!
That's correct. In the blink of an eye, she was already in Heaven City, at the Xia family home!
Gu Ruoyun was shocked. She blinked and stared at the man's peerless face in complete surprise, "Xiao Ye, what's your level of strength now?"
"Yun'er," Qianbei Ye smiled, "I've just learned a special technique, I can now carry you for a thousand kilometers very quickly. I was not able to do it in the past but ever since my recent awakening, I've been able to fly so much faster now. Next time, no matter where you want to go, I can reach you immediately. This way, if you're ever in any danger, I can save you in the fastest way possible."
Whenever he recalled the events which had happened during the Divine Trials, Qianbei Ye's heart would clench.
If I had only been a little faster, she would not have had to suffer such heavy injuries!
An eerie light flashed in Qianbei Ye's eyes and his peerless expression was filled with resolve. Nevertheless, whenever he looks at the woman in his arms, the icy chill would melt away, replaced by a sense of warmth.
Yun'er, I've finally found you again after searching for so long.
Hence, in this lifetime, I will protect you with my life!
"Gu girl, you're finally here."
Just then, an elderly figure appeared in the doorway.
A pained look appeared in Gu Ruoyun's eyes when she saw the elder, "Master Xia, long time no see. I wonder, do you have any news of Xia Linyu?"
Master Xia shook his head bitterly and sighed, "A while ago, I heard someone mention that they had seen someone who looked just like him. However, that person then killed a lot of strong cultivators from the Immortal Realm. How could Yu'er have that level of power? It must have been a mistake."
Gu Ruoyun fell silent before she spoke again, "Master Xiao, if there's no news, then it's also good news. If Yu'er is still alive, he'll definitely return."
Master Xia sighed and smiled bitterly.
These past years have clearly aged him. His grey hair was vast and hazy, it was a heartbreaking sight.
"By the way, Master Xia, why had you summoned me?" Gu Ruoyun asked puzzledly.
From my observation, the Xia family does not seem to be in danger. Why had Master Xia summoned me?
"Gu girl, something has happened to Lord Lingxiao!"
Gu Ruoyun's expression changed immediately and her eyes sank, "What has happened to the Black Tortoise?"
Lingxiao was an important friend of the Azure Dragon and the White Tiger. Furthermore, she had agreed to help Lingxiao. She had not anticipated that something would have happened to him.
If something bad has happened to him, I would never forgive myself!
"Lord Lingxiao... It seems that he can't go on any longer."
Master Xia's entire face was filled with sorrow and bitterness, "So I sent word to the Dongfang family to ask you to come here. Perhaps you might have a way to release Lord Lingxiao."
Gu Ruoyun pondered for a moment before raising her head to face Master Xia, "Take me to Lingxiao!"
