1754 Miao Zhen
Then, Chu Liuyue felt a pair of eyes sweep past her.
That gaze was clear and sharp. She had the illusion that her entire being had been seen through.
“There are two humans, but there’s actually a red-gold heavenly phoenix?”
Shock entered the voice. Clearly, it was too strange for them to appear here.
A moment later, the voice laughed. “I was wondering which talented junior had found this place, but it turns out… it’s a three-eyed legendary eagle that has fused with the bones of a great phoenix dragon.”
Chu Liuyue’s heart tightened. The other party has actually recognized all of us so easily!
She was about to speak when Rong Xiu spoke first. “We unintentionally barged into this place and disturbed you, Senior. Please forgive us.”
After a short silence, the white mist on the lake suddenly gathered. In the blink of an eye, it condensed into the appearance of a middle-aged man.
“Come forward.” His voice was filled with irrefutable dignity!
Chu Liuyue and Rong Xiu glanced at each other.
Zi Chen had already walked forward.
Rong Xiu lightly nodded. The two of them then followed closely.
Tuan Zi grabbed the corner of Chu Liuyue’s shirt and followed behind.
There was no sun here, but the sky was green and very bright.
The woods were lush and leafy. The thick leaves made crackling sounds when stepped on.
The breeze blew, bringing with it the faint fragrance of plants.
Everything looked no different from an ordinary forest.
They quickly made their way through the trees to the lake.
It wasn’t a big lake, but the still water was deep, and there was a faint phosphorescence on the surface.
If one didn’t look at the apparition hanging above the lake, this place would really be quiet and leisurely. It was a good place to rest.
Unfortunately, Chu Liuyue couldn’t relax no matter what. She knew very well that the person in front of her was from the great phoenix dragon clan!
As they stood closer, they could see more clearly.
The man looked to be in his 30s or 40s. He wore a long robe, and he had an ordinary face and a long beard.
At a glance, he seemed very ordinary and nothing special. However, the cold and shocking aura around him clearly indicated that this man was definitely not simple!
Chu Liuyue even felt that this person wasn’t inferior to Miao Yang!
“Of course, you didn’t enter here unintentionally.” The man laughed. “Godly Dragon Island never lets humans in. It’s definitely not an accident that you can appear here.”
Chu Liuyue found it strange. After the other great phoenix dragons saw Rong Xiu and me break into Godly Dragon Island, they were filled with righteous indignation. However, the man in front of us is clearly a great phoenix dragon, but he doesn’t seem to care about this matter.
One has to know that other than the two of us, there is also Tuan Zi! How could this be tolerated?
“There’s no need to doubt me. I don’t have the intention to welcome you; it’s just that… this legendary three-eyed eagle is quite fated with me. For its sake, I won’t pursue the matter.”
Several pairs of eyes turned to Zi Chen.
The man sighed and laughed helplessly. “I originally thought that some smart junior had come. Who knew… However, it doesn’t matter. The bloodline power of the great phoenix dragon clan flows in your body. You can be considered half a member of my clan.”
Chu Liuyue’s eyelids twitched. This person… is really casual… As ancient legendary fiends, the great phoenix dragon clan values their bloodline the most. In their opinion, people like Zi Chen are just anomalies who have tainted their bloodline. However, why does the person in front of us not seem to think so?
“Of course, it shouldn’t have been considered like this, but… Since you’ve fused with my blood, I’ll naturally treat you as one of us.”
This sentence was instantly like a handful of water poured into a pot of oil. In an instant, flames flew everywhere!
Chu Liuyue looked up in shock and stared at the man in front of her in disbelief. Her heart was already in turmoil! He said… Zi Chen has fused with his blood?! Then, his identity is obvious!
“You… You’re the one who was locked up at Seven Lotus Peak?”
Hearing the words ‘Seven Lotus Peak,’ a dark expression flashed across the man’s face. “Yes.”
Rong Xiu’s eyes flickered before he cupped his hands and bowed. “So it’s Senior Miao Zhen. My apologies.”
Miao Zhen gave him a surprised look. “How do you know my name?”
Rong Xiu smiled and said, “Senior Miao Zhen is a rare genius of the great phoenix dragon clan and is very famous, so we’ve naturally heard of you.”
Chu Liuyue silently gave His Grace a thumbs up. This praise is really professional.
As expected, Miao Zhen’s expression improved a lot. However, his eyes soon darkened again, and he laughed self-deprecatingly. “The glory of the past has long dissipated. Now, I’m just a ghost. Hiding here and not seeing the light of day for a thousand years—what’s the difference between this and death?”
Chu Liuyue held her breath. Miao Zhen! He is actually still alive!
Rumor had it that the legendary figure who killed seven people in a row overnight was finally executed by the great phoenix dragons. However, he was actually hiding in the coiling dragon pillar in the holy hall!
Miao Yang and the others never would’ve thought that he would actually hide here!
Rong Xiu raised his eyebrows and smiled. “You’re still alive, and the inheritance of the great phoenix dragon’s ancestor is still with you. Your identity is naturally different.”
Just as he finished speaking, Chu Liuyue felt a cold killing intent suddenly attack her!
Her heart skipped a beat, but Rong Xiu was calm and composed. Hence, she didn’t move.
Just as the sharp aura was about to cut through their bodies, it finally stopped!
“Junior, how bold!” Miao Zhen gazed at Rong Xiu coldly. How dare he say such a thing in front of me?! There are less than three people in the world who know about the heirloom on me! This kid is so bold!
Rong Xiu’s expression didn’t change as he said calmly, “Since we followed Zi Chen here, it’s not difficult to guess this. What’s the point of pretending in front of you?”
That would only make Miao Zhen feel that they were hypocritical and unreliable. Hence, he decided to be frank.
Miao Zhen stared at Rong Xiu for a while, and the coldness on his face gradually faded. “You’ve got guts.”
