Chapter 1654: Kindly HelpTranslator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
Unknowingly, a distant but real shatter sounded.
Chu Liuyue’s eyes flew open! In an instant, there seemed to be stars flickering in her eyes—extremely dazzling!
An indescribable pressure spread from her body!
Great King Xuan Master!
Rong Xiu’s thin lips curled up slightly. I knew she would succeed. This matter might be as difficult as ascending to the sky for ordinary people, but it is much easier for her since she repaired the Heaven-Locking Formation before.
However, this scene stunned the people not far away.
“This… this aura is…” Nan Yiyi was a Xuan Master and had good talent, so she was especially sensitive to this.
Her eyes widened slightly in disbelief. That woman looks to be only 17 or 18 years old. How could she have directly broken through to become a Great King Xuan Master?! Even I, who is already 24 years old, have never seen the threshold of a Great King Xuan Master!
She couldn’t help but grab her brother’s sleeve. “Big Brother, did I sense the aura wrongly?”
Nan Yuxing’s expression was extremely ugly. Although he wasn’t a Xuan Master, he had seen many Xuan Masters. That woman has indeed broken through to become a Great King Xuan Master! If I hadn’t seen it with my own eyes, even I wouldn’t believe that such a young Great King Xuan Master existed in this world! Moreover, it seems that she broke through in less than a day!
“…She must have used some method!” Nan Yuxing gritted his teeth.
When Nan Yiyi heard this, she dispelled the last hope in her heart. Method… How is that possible? A warrior might still be able to use some method to forcefully increase their strength and realm for a certain period of time. However, it is definitely impossible for a Xuan Master! If she has broken through, it is based on her own talent!
Nan Yiyi’s body swayed, and she almost fell to the ground. Everything in front of her was too much of a blow.
First, Elder Bai Tong and Elder Wu Peng were suppressed by Rong Xiu one after another. Then, that woman directly broke through to become a Great King Xuan Master…
Previously, she had a certain amount of pride in this aspect and thought that she was better than the other party, but now, all of this was shattered!
Elder Wu Peng had just helped deal with Elder Bai Tong’s injuries. Sensing this commotion, he also looked up with a deep gaze.
At this point, if they still looked down on the two of them, they would be extremely stupid!
Nan Yuxing couldn’t help but take a step forward. “Elder Wu Peng, we have to leave!”
Elder Wu Peng frowned with complicated emotions in his eyes.
He naturally knew that if he let the two of them leave, there would be endless troubles. But… Nan Yuxing and Bai Tong were seriously injured, and Nan Yiyi was clearly weaker than them. Even if he tried his best, he might not be able to deal with the two of them before they sent out the message.
If word got out, they would still be in trouble. At that time, the situation would only get worse.
More importantly, they had come to the God-Killing Tumulus to find that thing. Now that they had yet to find it, they were already heavily injured. If they were delayed because of this, then… the gains wouldn’t make up for the losses!
Elder Wu Peng lowered his gaze and glanced at Elder Bai Tong. “Bai Tong, what do you think?”
Elder Bai Tong’s face was pale and filled with hatred. Nobody would choose to accept their calf being cut off so easily, let alone someone like Elder Bai Tong.
Never would he have thought that after being all-powerful for so long, he would actually suffer at the hands of such a young man! He wanted revenge more than anyone, but… He knew what Elder Wu Peng was thinking.
After hesitating for a while, Elder Bai Tong finally gritted his teeth and said, “Let’s go back first…”
“Elder Bai Tong!?” Nan Yuxing suddenly interrupted him, almost thinking that he had heard wrongly. He has lost a leg! Now, he is actually planning to let it go?
Elder Bai Tong closed his eyes. How could I not want revenge? But in the current situation, leaving first is the best choice! When we find that thing and complete the mission given by the family head, won’t we have plenty of time and opportunities to look for these two people?
Nan Yuxing gradually clenched his fists.
At first, he only wanted to cause trouble for the two because they had humiliated his sister. He planned to teach them a lesson. But now… the few of them had suffered and were humiliated by the other party!
Nan Yuxing, who was used to being high and mighty, could not accept this.
He slowly looked up.
At this moment, Chu Liuyue had completely woken up from her breakthrough.
She had just stood up when Rong Xiu walked over.
“Congratulations, Yue’er.” The cold frost between his eyebrows melted at this moment, replaced by a gentle smile.
Chu Liuyue’s eyes also curved into crescents as she smiled. “Thanks to your guidance.”
If she hadn’t played that game of chess with Rong Xiu, she didn’t know when she would be able to comprehend it and break through.
Rong Xiu raised his eyebrows and lowered his head slightly. He looked into her eyes seriously and asked with a low smile, “Then… is there a reward?”
The two of them were extremely close.
When he spoke, his warm breath and faint cold fragrance silently enveloped her.
Chu Liuyue stretched out her finger and gently tapped his chest, then leaned back slightly and smiled. “There are people here. Your Highness, you should restrain yourself.”
As she spoke, she half-turned and looked at the other people, her eyes crinkling in greeting. “What a coincidence. We’ve met again.”
Coincidence? Coincidence my ass! Seeing the smile on her face, the suppressed anger in Nan Yuxing and the rest burned. This woman definitely did it on purpose! Just because she has broken through to become a Great King Xuan Master, she doesn’t care about others!
“You!” Nan Yuxing was furious. “You’re courting death!”
Chu Liuyue blinked in surprise as if she had yet to realize what had happened. “May I know what this young master…”
“Nan Yuxing,” Rong Xiu reminded.
There was no need to be polite with such a person.
Chu Liuyue coughed. “What do you mean, Young Master Nan?”
Playing dumb! Nan Yuxing was so angry that he laughed instead. “You really don’t know? Don’t tell me you don’t know what the man beside you did!”
Moreover, the little girl in the Red Soul Woods was summoned by this woman! Both of them still owe us!
Chu Liuyue glanced at Rong Xiu and stroked her chin as if she were thinking about something. “Hasn’t my husband… been helping the few of you?”
Nan Yuxing and the others couldn’t believe that she could say such a thing. The few of us are in an extremely sorry state and are covered in injuries. Wasn’t it all caused by Rong Xiu?! She actually has the cheek to lie through her teeth!
“Heh! Good! Good! I finally understand now. There’s… nothing to say to the two of you!” A string in Nan Yuxing’s mind suddenly snapped. He flicked his sleeve, and something quickly flew toward Chu Liuyue!
