Feng Wu smiled a little . It was expensive, but if Zuo Ming knew that his family was being hunted by the Flying Guillotine as well, would he put a price on other people’s heads so casually after this?
It was the break of dawn when Feng Wu was ready to go home .
The sky had just started to brighten up, though it was still dim outside .
Along the silent street, a figure as nimble as a cat jumped from roof to roof at top speed .
Right at that moment!
All of a sudden!
Feng Wu felt a streak of spiritual essence sweep over her .
That was —
Feng Wu looked down to find a carriage racing along the street . She had no idea who the passenger was, but that streak of spiritual essence definitely came from inside the carriage .
Feng Wu stared at the carriage .
It was lit up from inside by two lanterns .
They had the insignia of Northern Feng Mansion on them .
Could it be Lady Northern Feng, her godmother? Feng Wu wondered if she should go down and say hello .
However, it was Feng Xun inside, not Lady Northern Feng .
Feng Xun had just gotten back from the suburbs, where Master Linghu lived . He was covered with sweat after a long night of training, and was dozing off in the carriage .
He wanted to go back home more than anything else, so that he could lie down and sleep .
The training was a rough stretching session which was so intense that all his tendons were cramping, and he was almost crying at the pain .
It just so happened that Feng Xun had a nose sharper than a dog’s . He was resting with his eyes closed when he caught a faint scent .
It was so familiar .
Nothing would have happened if Feng Xun had let it pass . That way, Feng Wu would be able to go home as planned and so would Feng Xun .
Something dawned on Feng Xun .
And he caught that idea in a fleeting moment .
“Ah!” Feng Xun cried out . “It’s her! Her!”
Then, the guards of the mansion watched as their young lord rushed out of the carriage, rambling words that no one else understood .
Moreover, he jumped onto the roof right away!
The guards were baffled when their young lord ran away . They followed him immediately .
Feng Wu looked over her shoulder to find Feng Xun behind her .
She smiled and was about to greet him when Feng Xun ran toward her, roaring, “You ugly girl! I finally found you! Stop right there!”
Feng Xun’s words were a thunderclap in Feng Wu’s ears .
Feng Wu saw the light right away .
She wasn’t dressed like the ugly girl from the forest of Northern Border City before, but she had the same sallow skin, which was created by the same cream .
“Ugly, stop! I know the smell of the cream you used to cover your face! It’s you! Stop running!”
Feng Wu knew what this was about before Feng Xun finished talking .
The cream had given her away!
And Feng Xun…
The last thing Feng Wu would do right now was say hello to him . She would blow her own cover .
She turned and started running right away .
“You’re running away?! How dare you!” Feng Xun yelled angrily . He couldn’t believe this was happening .
Feng Xun recalled everything that had happened in Frozen Forest of Northern Border City .
He had been so nice to that girl .
