1712 Reversing the Truth
As soon as these words were spoken, Elder Yi Yu’s eyes turned cold. This young lady looks soft and weak, but I didn’t expect her words to be dirty. He actually called Shangguan Yue a ‘b*tch?’
Just as Yi Yu was about to reprimand her, Yi Zhao suddenly glanced at him calmly and stopped him.
Elder Yi Yu choked, and his Adam’s apple bobbed a few times. In the end, he swallowed his words.
The undercurrents between the two of them were very hidden, so Nan Yiyi didn’t notice them. However, Nan Yifan saw this scene.
Nan Yifan couldn’t understand the expressions of Yi Zhao and the other man, but when he thought of their previous reactions, he couldn’t help but feel uneasy. Didn’t they come here to find their people? Why are they suddenly talking about looking for Shangguan Yue now? It is unknown what relationship Shangguan Yue has with them, but it is indeed a little rash for Nan Yiyi to speak like this.
“Yiyi.” Nan Yifan emphasized his words slightly, hinting at a reminder.
Nan Yiyi glanced at her father, but she didn’t take his warning to heart. It seems that my father still doesn’t know that Shangguan Yue has contracted a red-gold heavenly phoenix, right?
“Father, don’t worry. I know my limits.” She comforted him carelessly and turned away again.
Nan Yifan wanted to say something, but seeing the subtle atmosphere, he finally shut his mouth.
Yi Zhao glanced at Nan Yiyi from head to toe. His gaze was almost tangible, carrying a heavy pressure.
Nan Yiyi subconsciously felt timid.
Just as she was about to collapse, Yi Zhao finally looked away. Only then did Nan Yiyi feel relieved.
“Yeah.” Yi Zhao’s face was still expressionless and unpredictable. “I’m indeed looking for her.”
Hearing his affirmative answer, Nan Yiyi instantly believed her previous guess even more. He must know about the contracted legendary fiend, which is why he has traveled thousands of miles to find this place!
For a moment, Nan Yiyi felt both smug and regretful. She was happy that Shangguan Yue had offended the red-gold heavenly phoenix clan.
Shangguan Yue is definitely dead! Unfortunately, she still seems to be trapped in the black wall, her fate unknown. If Shangguan Yue has already died inside, won’t I be unable to see her suffer? It’s a pity just thinking about it.
She sighed and said, “I’m afraid I’ll have to disappoint you. The only thing I can be sure of now is that she’s still there. But as for whether she’s alive or dead and whether she can come out in the end, I don’t know.”
Yi Zhao frowned quickly. Actually, this outcome was within his expectations.
“Previously, you said that all of this is Shangguan Yue’s fault? What’s going on? Tell me in detail.” Yi Zhao’s tone was calm and indifferent, but it was noble and arrogant, causing one to feel reverence and submissiveness unconsciously.
Nan Yiyi loosened and tightened her grip. “I have to start from a few days ago…”
After that, Nan Yiyi recounted what had happened in the past few days, selectively leaving out her few provocations and her initiative to find trouble with the other party. She emphasized Shangguan Yue’s rude words and strong attacks on them.
Most importantly, Shangguan Yue tried to kill her, but in the end, everyone was swallowed into the black wall.
In her description, everything seemed to have been caused by Shangguan Yue alone. From beginning to end, she didn’t even mention Rong Xiu’s name.
To outsiders, they would naturally think that Shangguan Yue was an arrogant, unreasonable, selfish, and ruthless person. It was also her who had put everyone in a life-and-death situation.
Elder Yi Yu could not stand it anymore. It isn’t like I haven’t dealt with that girl before. What Nan Yiyi said is clearly not trustworthy. I don’t know how Shangguan Yue has offended her to make her spend so much effort to smear her reputation; it’s as if she wants to put her to death forever. Could it be… just because they had all been swallowed into the black wall?
“…That’s all.” After saying that, Nan Yiyi carefully glanced at Yi Zhao.
Unfortunately, Yi Zhao’s expression remained unchanged.
Nan Yiyi couldn’t guess what he was thinking.
On the other hand, Nan Yifan and the others were stunned by her words. “Yiyi, you’re saying… that Shangguan Yue contracted a red-gold heavenly phoenix?!”
Nan Yiyi nodded. “I wonder what method Shangguan Yue used. Moreover… that red-gold heavenly phoenix listens to her very much.”
Nan Yifan frowned. “Since it’s a contractual legendary fiend, it’s normal for this to happen.”
It’s no wonder Nan Yiyi dared to say so earlier—it turns out that there is such a shocking secret! Red-gold heavenly phoenixes are ancient legendary fiends and have always been extremely arrogant. They don’t even bother to interact with humans, let alone form a contract. This is undoubtedly a stain on their entire race!
No wonder Yi Zhao has personally taken action. He must’ve been so nervous previously because he was looking for the contracted red-gold heavenly phoenix.
“But…” Nan Yiyi suddenly thought of something and spoke hesitantly. “There seems to be something wrong with that red-gold heavenly phoenix. She can already transform into a human, but she looks only three or four years old.”
“Oh?” Nan Yifan couldn’t help but reveal a shocked expression. The red-gold heavenly phoenix clan can only transform into human form after they reach adulthood, right? How could this happen?
“In that case, Shangguan Yue used some special method?” He was puzzled and looked at Yi Zhao and Elder Yi Yu inquisitively.
Unfortunately, the other party was deeper and more unpredictable than him. Nan Yifan couldn’t tell what they were thinking.
“How did you get out?” Yi Zhao suddenly asked.
Nan Yiyi had already thought of an answer, but there was still a hint of panic and fear on her face. “At that time, I was walking inside when I suddenly felt the surrounding space begin to compress crazily. After an unknown period of time, a huge force attacked! When I opened my eyes again, I realized that I was already out…”
In other words, she didn’t know what was going on.
“By yourself?” Elder Yi Yu, who had been silent, spoke.
Nan Yiyi hesitated. “…Yes.”
Elder Yi Yu smiled meaningfully. “Second Miss Nan is really impressive. With the strength of a true god, you can actually walk freely inside? As far as I know, it seems to be quite dangerous inside, right? If Second Miss Nan encountered that situation, the others should be the same then. But now, only Second Miss Nan is out. You’re really… impressive.”
Nan Yiyi immediately felt that something was wrong. She couldn’t say what was wrong, so she could only smile awkwardly. “Actually, I was just lucky—”
A boom sounded from the black wall again!
Everyone looked up in unison and saw another figure fall out!
Nan Yiyi’s heart instantly rose to her throat!
