“Zilan!” He Ziji’s heart skipped a beat, and he hurriedly went up to cover her mouth. “What nonsense are you talking about!?”
How could she say such things so casually?
He Zilan blurted out that sentence and immediately regretted it. She hurriedly gazed at Hong An.
But at this time, Hong An had already closed his eyes as if he were deep in thought, not paying attention to the situation here.
After confirming that he had no intention of pursuing the matter, He Ziji heaved a sigh of relief.
His entire back was drenched in cold sweat.
He Zilan’s tears fell on the back of his hand, making him angry and heartbroken, but he couldn’t vent his anger. “…Zilan, this isn’t your home. I can’t let you be wilful! You must be careful with your words and actions in the future, understand?”
He Zilan nodded while crying. At this moment, she also realized the seriousness of the matter.
Chu Liuyue smiled and said gently, “That’s right. This is Taiyang Mountain—how can there be a problem? It must be a misunderstanding.”
He Ziji glanced at her gratefully.
Initially, he felt that this woman’s personality was a little cold. He didn’t expect the latter to speak up for him at this time.
“No need. It’s fine as long as everyone is safe.” After saying that, Chu Liuyue didn’t say anything else.
Everything seemed to have returned to normal. However, He Zilan’s words were heard by many people around her.
Some people secretly exchanged glances, feeling a little suspicious and uneasy. He Zilan doesn’t look like she is lying. After all, creating such rumors isn’t beneficial to her. Why would she have to be so thankless?
However, her situation is indeed a little strange. If the people present didn’t make a move, who else could it be?
Could there really be a problem with this Taiyang Mountain?
On the surface, this farce had indeed subsided, but many people had planted seeds of doubt in their hearts.
First, it was He Zilan.
Who knew if such a thing would happen again in the future? Whose turn would it be?
Moreover, they might even be hit harder…
Their minds were a mess, so they were no longer in the mood to heal and cultivate.
An inexplicable sense of unwillingness and anxiety quietly surged among the people at the top of the mountain.
Hong An frowned and finally opened his eyes, looking down. With this commotion, all my previous preparations are in vain…
He was furious, but he couldn’t flare up. These people aren’t stupid. Once they realize that something is wrong, they will definitely react quickly. Therefore, I have to be more careful.
Even if I am delayed, I can only accept it. At most, I will make up for it later…
After persuading himself like this, Hong An’s mood finally calmed down.
However, this peace didn’t last long.
Four hours later, the same thing happened again! But this time, the person who was ‘sneak attacked’ was a young man in his twenties.
His shoulder blade was cracked. Moreover, he didn’t know who did it.
The first time might have been a misunderstanding, but this time, there was no way to explain it like this. Moreover, the injuries this time were even more serious than before!
Seeing the young man sitting on the ground with a pained expression and breathing in pain, everyone’s hearts sank.
“…What’s going on? Once, twice… Will there be a third time, or even more?”
“Who can say for sure… If the culprit becomes even more ferocious in the future, I’m afraid people’s injuries will become more and more serious, or even…”
“Could there really be something fishy about Taiyang Mountain?”
Everyone discussed spiritedly. Many people already wanted to investigate Taiyang Mountain.
Hong An’s suppressed anger surged in his chest. “There’s nothing wrong with Taiyang Mountain! Someone is definitely up to something!”
After what had happened, he could no longer stay high and mighty. He could only return to the top of the mountain.
He walked to the youth’s side and personally checked but found nothing. This gave Hong An a headache.
Actually, he had been paying close attention to the situation on the mountaintop. However, he didn’t notice how this happened at all!
It was as if the force of the sneak attack had suddenly appeared out of thin air!
However, this was too wrong! If the people present did anything, they would definitely not be able to escape his eyes!
Yet, he didn’t discover anything!
Hong An asked the person beside him to bandage the young man’s wound.
It was quiet all around.
After this happened twice in a row, everyone felt very uneasy.
He Zilan couldn’t help but whisper, “…Big Brother, I told you that there’s something wrong with this place… I’m really not talking nonsense. Look at this…”
What if this is just the beginning? Who knows what will happen afterward?
He Ziji frowned and glanced at his sister, indicating for her to stop talking.
But even if He Zilan didn’t say it, everyone present already had the same thought.
Hong An stood up and thought for a moment before waving his sleeves!
A huge red barrier instantly enveloped everyone.
“Alright, don’t make wild guesses! Now that we’ve set up a barrier, the same thing will definitely not happen again. Just continue to rest,” Hong An said in a deep voice.
But at this moment, these words were clearly useless. Everyone was still standing in their spots, not daring to sit down or rest or cultivate.
It didn’t feel safe.
Rong Xiu suddenly said, “This brother is injured. He shouldn’t be able to stay any longer. Should we send him down the mountain?”
His voice was calm, but it instantly reminded everyone. Yeah! A fractured shoulder blade indeed has a huge impact. Under such circumstances, Hong An actually didn’t ask him to leave at all?
