Chapter 1672: The TruthTranslator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
At the same time, the hood on his head finally tore apart, revealing his true appearance!
When he fell to the ground, his first reaction was to cover his face with his sleeve! However, everyone present had extremely good eyesight. It was clearly useless for him to hide now.
Chu Liuyue narrowed her eyes.
It was the face of a man who looked to be in his thirties. He had ordinary looks and ordinary facial features that were inconspicuous in the crowd, but… His eyes were pure black.
At a glance, they were dark and empty. It was really strange.
Perhaps because he had suffered several huge blows in succession, his body had become much more illusory, and his aura was dispirited.
The Glowing Sky Staff had broken in half. Half of it had fallen to the ground, and the other half was still clenched in his palm.
The cut was smooth and neat. It could be seen how powerful that strike was!
Of course, that didn’t mean that Chu Liuyue was stronger than the other party. It could only be said that the battle intent in those stones was too strong! As a result, it cut the staff!
Chu Liuyue walked forward.
The black-robed man subconsciously trembled and wanted to retreat, but he realized that his body seemed to be nailed to the ground, and he couldn’t move!
He was shocked and looked around in panic again.
The vast wilderness was empty and silent. Only broken tombstones stood in disarray, motionless.
Just as before, this tombstone area had actually severed its connection with him and completely abandoned him!
How could this be… How could this be!? I can’t figure it out. It has clearly been fine for the past few years; I could borrow the power here and use it for myself. That was why I dared to say that this was my territory. But now—everything is unreal!
A pair of boots appeared in his peripheral vision.
He froze and suddenly stopped all movement.
The air seemed to freeze.
A gorgeous sword light tore through the void and stabbed straight over!
The tip of the sword was pointed at his glabella—it was only an inch away! As long as Chu Liuyue was willing, she could directly take his life!
However, she didn’t attack immediately. This man has too many secrets. It would be a pity to kill him just like this.
“What are you looking for?” Chu Liuyue tilted her head and asked indifferently. She could clearly see that since just now, this man had been looking around as if he were looking for something or… waiting for something.
The black-robed man glanced at the broken Glowing Sky Staff in his hand and suddenly sneered. Then, he casually threw away the remaining half. “You don’t know what I’m looking for?”
There was sarcasm in his words.
Chu Liuyue squinted her eyes.
Before she could say anything, the man closed his eyes. “Since I have lost to you today, then… it’s up to you to kill me!”
He had never thought of begging for mercy because he understood better than anyone that at times like this, living was more painful than dying.
It can only be said that I have made a huge mistake. I underestimated Shangguan Yue in the end.
Seeing that he was determined to die, Chu Liuyue found it even more interesting.
Her pale lips curled into a cold smile. “All these years, you’ve attacked me repeatedly. Now that you want to die, how can there be such a good thing?”
The black-robed man’s heart sank, and he suddenly opened his eyes! “What do you want!?”
I know her quite well. This woman isn’t an easy person to deal with. If I really fall into her hands, she will definitely have ways to make me wish I were dead!
Chu Liuyue lifted her chin. “I don’t want anything, but I’ve always advocated reciprocity. You must’ve spent a lot of effort to give me those ‘gifts’ previously. Of course, I have to return the favor seriously.”
“I’ll ask you a few questions. If your answers satisfy me, I’ll end you quickly. How about that?”
The black-robed man took a deep breath, but flames still surged in his heart.
He laughed coldly. “What if you’re still not satisfied after asking?”
Chu Liuyue shrugged. “Then, you can only blame your bad luck.”
Shameless! The black-robed man had long expected her to do this, so he had no intention of agreeing to it from the beginning.
He closed his eyes again as if he had made up his mind not to give her any answers.
Chu Liuyue put down the black shield and took out a black wooden token.
She weighed it in her hand and asked with interest, “This thing is very important to the people of Black Demon Hole. But since you’ve already betrayed them, this thing should be useless to you, right?”
The black-robed man refused to answer, his attitude unyielding.
She glanced at him and handed the black wooden token to Tuan Zi. “Tuan Zi, deal with this annoying thing.”
“Okay!” Tuan Zi agreed crisply and took the wooden token.
Her other hand wasn’t injured. She exerted strength, and the wooden sign turned to dust!
The black-robed man did not even bat an eyelid.
Chu Liuyue nodded in understanding. “It seems that you indeed have no more contact with Black Demon Hole. Moreover… you’ve already found another way to store this soul. If I’m not wrong, it should be this black robe?”
Hearing this, the man suddenly opened his eyes! “You—”
When he saw the confirmation on her face, he came back to his senses and gritted his teeth. “You tricked me!?”
Chu Liuyue smiled brightly. “I was just guessing. Who knew you would admit it so quickly?”
Without a physical body, this soul requires something to be stored in to survive successfully for a long time. Just like Ancestor, a few soul parts were separated back then and stored in the Long Yuan Sword and the jade pendant. And this man dared to leave this black wooden token with me as bait, which proves that he no longer cared about it.
The higher the level of the people from Black Demon Hole, the closer they were to this wooden token. Based on this man’s strength, it is impossible for him to break free of this restraint casually. He must’ve used some method to forcefully escape… Otherwise, he would not have such confidence.
She sized him up for a while.
The black-robed man looked away.
After that, no matter what she said, he refused to speak.
Chu Liuyue knitted her brows slightly.
At this moment, Rong Xiu suddenly said, “Mo Shiqian still doesn’t know that you’re hiding here, right?”
