At this point, familiar footsteps could be heard from outside.
Yi Wentao was shocked.
The elder in charge of guarding the door had already said, “Greetings, Family Head!”
Jun Jiuqing! Why did he suddenly come?! Yi Wentao frowned and immediately turned around to give the man in black a look.
The black-clothed man’s figure flashed, and he vanished from the spot.
Jun Jiuqing’s voice was casual as usual. “I haven’t been here for a few days and missed you. I happened to pass by and wanted to come and take a look.”
At this moment, he had already walked to the door and glanced inside. “How is the situation?”
That elder hurriedly said, “Everything is as usual. It’s just that… it’s just that the family head doesn’t seem to be in a good mood today.”
“Is that so?” Jun Jiuqing smiled. All the more reason to go in and take a look.
With that, he pushed the door open and entered.
The room was very quiet, and there was a faint bitter medicinal fragrance.
Although Jun Jiuqing didn’t come these few days, he had always sent people to deliver medicine.
He walked inside and saw Yi Wentao.
There was also the mess on the ground.
Jun Jiuqing raised his eyebrows. “You’re so angry. Why? Did your subordinates not serve you well enough?”
Yi Wentao sneered in his heart. Serve? During this period of time, I have been locked up here like a prisoner. Who would serve me?
Surveillance is more like it!
Yi Wentao looked up and asked coldly, “Why are you here again today? I’ve already said everything I needed to say to you that day!”
His face was filled with annoyance. He was just short of chasing him away.
Jun Jiuqing didn’t mind and smiled faintly. “It’s nothing. I heard that you have a guest here, so I thought of coming over to take a look.”
Yi Wentao’s heart skipped a beat, but he was a sly old fox after all! He didn’t show any guilt on his face and instead laughed sarcastically. “What did you say? Guest? Apart from you, I don’t have anyone else here. Guest… where did they come from?”
Jun Jiuqing looked around.
The air in the room seemed to freeze.
“Family Head, why do you have to do this?” After a while, Jun Jiuqing spoke slowly. “Thanks to your kindness, I was able to become the young master and become the family head. If you continue to stay here well, I guarantee that you can live the rest of your days peacefully. Unfortunately… you don’t seem to care about these things.”
Yi Wentao said coldly, “I don’t know what you’re talking about—”
“Over the past few days, I’ve been thinking about how you got in touch with that person.” Jun Jiuqing suddenly interrupted him. There was a strange smile on his devilish face.
“Although the Yi family is big and powerful, you interact with them as a person. The rest of the Yi family knows nothing about this. Under such circumstances, what did you use to persuade the other party to join forces with you?”
Yi Wentao’s throat was dry as he stared at Jun Jiuqing. “What do you want to say?”
Jun Jiuqing smiled and shook his head. “You should know best what I want to say. These few days, I’ve been thinking day and night and finally remembered something.”
He took a step forward.
For some reason, Yi Wentao’s legs suddenly felt weak, and he subconsciously took a step back.
The two of them faced each other, but Jun Jiuqing’s aura had already easily crushed Yi Wentao!
Yi Wentao regretted his decision.
Jun Jiuqing continued, “I remember that a few years ago, when Rong Xiu went to Black Demon Hole, that person was at a critical juncture in his cultivation and almost didn’t have the ability to fight. With Rong Xiu’s temperament, if he could completely kill the other party, he would definitely not leave any chance. But that time, he actually escaped and found another place.”
This meant that although Rong Xiu severely injured Black Demon Hole that time, he didn’t really threaten the other party’s foundation.
With every word Jun Jiuqing said, the pressure in Yi Wentao’s heart increased.
Seeing that he was silent, Jun Jiuqing asked softly, “Do you think someone helped?”
Yi Wentao took a step back and accidentally knocked over the chair behind him.
The good rosewood chair fell to the ground with a dull thud.
“Family Head, what’s wrong?” When the elder outside the door heard this sound, he hurriedly knocked on the door and asked.
Jun Jiuqing answered lightly, “It’s fine. You don’t have to come in.”
“…Yes.” That elder was also a smart person. When he heard this, he immediately agreed and continued to guard the door obediently.
The room fell into a short silence.
“Looks like what I said is true?” Jun Jiuqing laughed. Although it was a question, his tone was very firm.
“I… I didn’t…” Yi Wentao wanted to deny it, but Jun Jiuqing’s words made him feel like he had fallen into an ice cave!
“Don’t you find it strange that no one has come to pick you up after so long? That even the news you sent out didn’t have any reaction?”
Yi Wentao suddenly felt a chill run down his spine! “Y-you—”
He widened his eyes and stared at Jun Jiuqing in disbelief. Jun Jiuqing… knows!
“I heard that those are all talents you’ve carefully nurtured for many years. It took you a lot of time and effort. What a pity.”
Yi Wentao’s heart was in turmoil!
Jun Jiuqing suddenly tilted his head and looked at the void behind Yi Wentao. Then, with a flick of his wrist, a vigorous force transformed into a long whip and flew out!
The void was forcefully torn apart, and the hidden black-robed man was directly pulled out!
His neck was tightly wrapped by the whip, and he couldn’t break free!
Seeing this, Yi Wentao could no longer maintain his usual calm facade. “You… You knew all along!?”
Jun Jiuqing didn’t say anything and exerted force.
The crisp sound of bones cracking could be heard. Finally, the black-robed man’s neck tilted, and he stopped breathing.
He wasn’t weak, but Jun Jiuqing took the initiative and didn’t give him any chance to catch his breath. That was how he died.
The man in black lay on the ground. Thick, bright red blood slowly flowed out from under him.
The thick smell of blood quickly spread out!
Yi Wentao’s lips trembled, and his face turned pale. At this point, what was there not to understand?
“I didn’t know that long ago.” Jun Jiuqing looked up and glanced at Yi Wentao. “You can’t hide it yourself. Isn’t it normal for others to know?”
Previously, he only had his suspicions and didn’t have any evidence. However, he knew that Yi Wentao would never give up, so he had been sending people to keep an eye on him.
Sure enough, he found something.
Two may keep counsel, putting one away.
Moreover, Jun Jiuqing was already prepared and was waiting for him to walk right into the trap!
Yi Wentao trembled. There seemed to be flames burning in his chest, but his body was still bone-chilling.
He knew that this time, he was really finished!
“You… How do you know so much?!”
It was about Black Demon Hole, about that person, about all of this!
