Chapter 1675: DisappointedTranslator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
“But all these years, I’ve been operating in secret and never let him discover any clues. Unfortunately—”
He was very cautious in doing this because he knew too well what methods Mo Shiqian would use to deal with him once he knew that he was still alive and was fighting with him for this thing.
Every time he took action, he would choose the right time and make all the preparations before taking action. It wasn’t until this time that he finally used Chu Ning to lure Chu Ning over.
He had thought that it would be foolproof and that he would definitely get it. Unfortunately, fate had decided otherwise.
In the end, he still suffered a crushing defeat.
“At this point, I’ve said everything I need to say.” The black-robed man closed his eyes as he spoke, looking like they could kill him if they wanted to.
There was silence. Only the wind in the wasteland blew past his ears, bringing with it a hint of coolness.
Chu Liuyue looked at him steadily for a while before finally digesting what he had said previously. A moment later, she took a step forward.
The black-robed man thought that she was about to attack, and he actually felt relieved.
Unexpectedly, Chu Liuyue didn’t intend to kill him. “I still have two questions. If you answer me truthfully, I’ll personally send you on your way.”
The black-robed man opened his eyes and frowned. I have already said everything clearly. What else does she want to ask?
But seeing that her expression did not seem to be fake, he patiently asked, “What?”
“First, you were determined to take revenge back then and decided to fight with him for this item. Therefore, do you know what it is? Secondly, when you were fighting me just now, what were you waiting for?”
She asked these two questions calmly. However, the black-robed man’s expression changed instantly.
He subconsciously looked away and frowned. After a while, he said, “If you don’t know what it is, how will others know? Besides, just now… You’re mistaken; I didn’t wait for anything.”
Chu Liuyue smiled. “It seems like you want to return to Black Demon Hole to take a look.”
“You—” The black-robed man was furious.
Unfortunately, he was at the mercy of others. No matter how aggrieved he was, there was nothing he could do.
The two parties entered a stalemate.
It took him a while to speak. “That’s…”
There was a tearing sound!
The black robe on his body suddenly seemed to have been slashed apart by an invisible knife!
Rong Xiu’s eyes darkened, and he immediately attacked!
However, it was too late. The black robe shattered faster and turned to dust!
The man’s soul completely dissipated!
In just a few breaths, the black-robed man had disappeared.
Not a trace was left.
Chu Liuyue knitted her brows tightly. “That was—”
“That black robe was the reason he could survive for so long. Perhaps for some reason, the black robe automatically annihilated and killed him completely.” A sharp glint flashed across Rong Xiu’s eyes. “What a pity…”
Chu Liuyue shook her head. “Anyway, we’ve already asked all the questions we should. As for the last two questions… Actually, I just wanted to confirm his attitude. In the end, he’s just a puppet.”
Rong Xiu looked at her.
The corners of Chu Liuyue’s lips curled up slightly as she looked around and said meaningfully, “This God-Killing Tumulus… really hides countless secrets, right?”
At first, I wasn’t sure. However, the black-robed man’s reaction just now confirmed my guess. But after I came here, I didn’t feel any threat. Especially after these stones stuck to me, I seem to feel more at ease walking in the God-Killing Tumulus.
Besides, I have finally resolved a problem that has been bothering me for years. It is a worthwhile trip.
“Let’s find Ancestor first. After we meet up, we’ll leave this place,” said Chu Liuyue.
Rong Xiu nodded and was about to speak when his expression suddenly changed, and he turned his head.
Following his gaze, Chu Liuyue saw a few familiar figures.
Her lips curved slightly, but there was no humor in her eyes. “These people are really… lingering…”
Almost at the same time, Elder Wu Peng stopped in his tracks.
Nan Yuxing and the others behind him also stopped.
At this point, they could finally see the scene ahead. But what they saw stunned them all.
“Why… why are they still alive!?” Nan Yuxing was shocked and muttered in disbelief. He almost suspected that he had seen wrongly.
He rubbed his eyes and looked over carefully, only to discover that the two of them were still in his line of sight—oh no, four people!
Apart from Rong Xiu and Chu Liuyue, the little girl from before had also appeared! Beside her was a middle-aged man covered in blood, and he was in a sorry state.
From the way they interacted, they seemed to be very familiar with each other.
But other than the four of them, the black-robed man from before was nowhere to be seen!
Elder Wu Peng’s eyes quickly swept across everything in front of him, and his heart slowly sank.
The ground is a mess; it can be seen how intense the battle was. However, Rong Xiu and the others are all standing here perfectly fine while the black-robed man is gone…
“It seems that the black-robed man has lost…” Elder Wu Peng lowered his voice.
“How is that possible!?” Nan Yuxing subconsciously retorted. “He’s so strong. Even if Rong Xiu and the others join forces, it’s impossible for them to defeat him!”
That is true. Even Elder Wu Peng himself felt that this guess was ridiculous. But is there any other explanation than this?
“…Then could it be that the black-robed man suddenly showed kindness and let them go?”
Nan Yuxing choked.
They fell silent.
They had seen the black-robed man’s attitude clearly. It was impossible for him to reconcile with Rong Xiu and the others.
“I just feel that something is wrong…” Elder Wu Peng clenched his fists. On the way here, we saw from afar that the blood color that filled the sky was quickly fading. Moreover, the blood-colored pillar of light had also fallen straight down, causing quite a commotion. At that time, I thought that I was thinking too much. Unexpectedly—
Elder Bai Tong couldn’t help but say, “I think there’s something strange about Rong Xiu and the others. Why don’t we leave first and—”
“What a coincidence. Guys, we meet again.” Before Elder Bai Tong could finish, Chu Liuyue greeted them with a smile.
“I remember that you guys had already left earlier and said that you were going to find something. Why did you… turn back halfway? Could it be that you still want to come back to take a look at the situation on our side?” As Chu Liuyue spoke, she helplessly spread her hands. “What a pity. I seem to have disappointed you.”v
