1860 The Secret to the Shield
The incoming person was Cen Yi!
“Greetings, Master.” Cen Yi nodded and bowed.
Chu Liuyue looked at him in shock. “Cen Yi? H-how did you come in?”
The Black Sword Sect was guarded strictly and had many guards. It was as hard as ascending the heavens to be able to come in silently.
What Chu Liuyue feared the most was the transparent barrier that covered the entire Black Sword Sect. Even she couldn’t confirm that she could come in without making any commotion, yet Cen Yi suddenly appeared!
“I used some methods,” said Cen Yi lightly.
After realizing that something happened, he rushed straight to the Black Sword Sect. However, it was indeed hard to enter the Black Sword Sect.
He had always been careful and was even more so in such situations, so he tried all sorts of methods. After wasting much time and effort, he came in.
“Big Brother, you’re indeed yourself!” San San stuck up his thumb in shock. I have stayed in Peach Blossom Dock for such a long time and have come in and out of Black Sword Sect quite a few times. Even I don’t dare to barge into this place, yet Big Brother can come in as he pleases!
Sometimes, the difference between people was indeed that huge.
Cen Yi turned around and bowed toward Rong Xiu. “Your Highness.”
Rong Xiu’s nonchalant gaze landed on him. His thin lips curled up slightly as he looked at Chu Liuyue. “Your subordinate is indeed amazing.”
Chu Liuyue was caught between laughter and tears. I also didn’t know that Cen Yi had such skills… However, now isn’t the time to talk about this.
“Cen Yi, it’s really too dangerous for you to suddenly barge in like this.” Nobody knows what kind of danger lies in the Black Sword Sect. Once Cen Yi is discovered…
“Master, don’t worry. I just came to confirm your and Your Highness’s safety and report to you the news outside. I won’t stay here for long.” He had also spent quite a lot of effort to come in. If he stayed for too long, even he didn’t dare to guarantee that he would be safe.
Seeing that he had his own arrangements, Chu Liuyue relaxed. “We’re all fine, but we’re temporarily locked up here by Mo Yun. He won’t do anything to us for now.”
However, it was quite hard if they wanted to go out.
“Big Brother, you mentioned the situation outside? What’s wrong outside?” San San quickly grasped the main point and anxiously asked.
Cen Yi paused. “The fire on Blue Peak has completely burned.”
Once this was said, the venue fell silent for a moment.
San San had a face of confusion. “Completely burned? Big Brother, what does that mean?”
Cen Yi explained, “During the day, a spark suddenly emerged on Blue Peak and attracted quite a few people’s attention. There were people who wanted to go up and investigate to see if there were any treasures descending, but they were swallowed by the fire and lost their lives. After a few people died, almost nobody dared to go over. It was until Mo Yun personally came—”
Speaking of this, he paused for a moment. “However, Mo Yun couldn’t suppress the fire and was injured. Afterward, the fire spread, and almost the entire Blue Peak was surrounded by it. Even in the city, one can also see the dark-blue fire shooting up toward the sky from afar.”
Chu Liuyue knitted her brows slightly. “The Black Sword Sect didn’t send more people?”
Cen Yi nodded. “After Mo Yun failed, he called quite a few people from the Black Sword Sect to work together. However, they still failed in the end and were severely injured. Mo Yun is now leading people to guard the Black Sword Sect, but they didn’t take further action.”
If he wasn’t driven to a corner, Mo Yun would definitely not do this. However, the current situation was urgent.
“Did the fire spread to the other mountains?” asked Rong Xiu suddenly.
Cen Yi thought for a moment and shook his head. “I’m not very sure about this either, but seeing the fire’s position, I don’t think it has for now.”
A look of understanding flashed across Rong Xiu’s face as if he wasn’t surprised.
If it were an average mountain fire, it would’ve long spread and burned the entire place. However, the one on Blue Peak wasn’t an ordinary fire, so the situation was naturally different.
Chu Liuyue pondered for a moment. “Since this is so, you can go back first and quietly observe the changes. If there’s any news, you can come and report.”
They still couldn’t leave the Black Sword Sect for now. If they did, it would cause even greater trouble.
Cen Yi nodded.”Yes. Master, Your Highness, take care. I’ll take my leave.”
Then, his figure rapidly disappeared!
“Hey! Big Brother—” called San San hurriedly, but the person had already disappeared without a trace.
“…Help me look after the shop…” San San muttered his remaining words. With this struggle, I most probably can’t make much money these few days! Big Brother only has eyes for Master and His Highness, but not me… How hurtful!
“Hey, Master, there should be quite a few people injured in Peach Blossom Dock, right? How much will the demand for medicine grow…” Should I increase my prices…
Chu Liuyue glanced at him and kindly reminded, “Yeah. I think the Black Sword Sect would request for even more, right?”
It was hard for San San to be excited, and now, he was defeated again. “Master, can’t you just let me be happy?”
It was already very miserable to be at this point.
Chu Liuyue seriously thought for a while. “The thing you’re happiest about now is probably… that the fire won’t burn your small space.”
Even though Blue Peak wasn’t far from Clear Water Cliff, judging from the current situation, the sudden fire was rather polite toward San San.
It would probably give him face.
The corner of San San’s lips twitched as he instinctively said, “That fire won’t burn it, but you might!”
