She turned around to leave! “Tuan Zi, Hong Yao, let’s go!”
Now that the Heavenly Square Cauldron had become hers, and the legendary three-eyed eagle was in her hands, Jiuyou Tower could no longer hold on!
Increasingly more stones started falling, and they hit the ground harshly!
Dust flew up everywhere!
Chu Liuyue hurriedly rushed to the seventh floor’s staircase, wanting to go down. But she suddenly discovered that the barrier—which Tuan Zi had bitten through—had become as good as new. Moreover, there seemed to be a cage layer outside the barrier.
Chu Liuyue knitted her brows. This…
Suddenly, the cage outside disappeared silently.
A familiar bulky figure gradually appeared.
A thought popped up in Chu Liuyue’s head. Could it be…
The next moment, the person opposite her seemed to stretch his hands over and lightly tapped the barrier.
The barrier quietly cracked from the middle!
A clear and demon-like handsome face appeared in front of her!
Chu Liuyue opened her mouth. “Rong Xiu?! Why are you here?”
Rong Xiu gave her a look of deep meaning before he extended his arms and hugged her.
An entire wall suddenly collapsed and landed on the position that Chu Liuyue was previously standing at.
Chu Liuyue leaned against Rong Xiu’s chest and turned back to take a look.
The originally empty seventh floor was very messy, and debris was everywhere.
She lightly exhaled. Even though she could avoid this level of danger, she seemed to be more relaxed with Rong Xiu around.
She remembered that Rong Xiu wasn’t here when she came in. This meant that he came in after her.
“You came here after Jiuyou Tower had strange happenings?” asked Chu Liuyue softly.
Rong Xiu let out an affirmative and hugged her tighter.
Chu Liuyue looked up at him. “Elder Wei Yun didn’t stop you?”
As the person in charge of taking care of Jiuyou Tower, Elder Wei Yun would definitely be the first to notice something amiss with Jiuyou Tower. Logically speaking, he definitely wouldn’t have let Rong Xiu in.
Rong Xiu looked at the worry in Chu Liuyue’s crystal-clear eyes, and his lips curved up. “Of course, he stopped me. However, he didn’t succeed. Are you very worried?”
Of course, Chu Liuyue was worried. Jiuyou Tower was very dangerous, yet Rong Xiu barged in like that. Elder Wei Yun and the rest would definitely suspect him.
Rong Xiu had previously been hiding his abilities exceedingly well. If he was exposed because of this…
“You don’t need to worry.” Rong Xiu lowered his head and kissed her soft lips.
The soft and cold touch made Chu Liuyue’s mind empty.
Rong Xiu’s blurred voice sounded from her lips. “Just act out a show for me.”
Chu Liuyue was dazed. “What?”
Rong Xiu chuckled as he bit on her lips with suitable strength.
Chu Liuyue instinctively opened her mouth.
Rong Xiu attacked her and hugged her for a while; he then stopped before he lost control.
Chu Liuyue was kissed by him until tears welled up in her eyes.
Rong Xiu glanced at her, and his gaze landed on her luscious lips as his eyes turned dark. It’s a pity that Jiuyou Tower is about to collapse. If not, we could’ve stayed here for a while longer.
Even though Rong Xiu didn’t dare to go overboard as he thought of the people they were going to meet later, he still couldn’t control himself earlier and kissed her until her lips were slightly swollen.
He held Chu Liuyue’s face, and his thumb gently pressed on her lips. “A good show.”
Chu Liuyue looked at him in confusion.
The next moment, Rong Xiu suddenly let go of her, walked to the side, and picked up a rock.
A strange feeling emerged in Chu Liuyue’s heart.
Rong Xiu calmly used the sharp edge of the rock to cut his arm. His snow-white shirt instantly ripped open, and a deep wound immediately appeared on his arm.
Fresh blood spurted out, and it immediately stained his clothes red.
“Rong Xiu!” Chu Liuyue immediately went forward and held his hand as she asked anxiously, “What are you doing?”
Rong Xiu raised his brows, leaned in close to her ear, and spoke in a melodious voice. “The beauty risked her life to save me. I have nothing to give her to repay her favor, so I can only marry her to make repayments.”
“You…” Chu Liuyue widened her eyes. Rong Xiu actually plans to—
Rong Xiu cut his arm again.
Chu Liuyue’s heart felt waves of pain as she held his hand. “Rong Xiu, you don’t have to do this! You really don’t have to do this! There are many explanations; we can just think of one! You don’t have to…”
“None of them are as convincing as this.” Rong Xiu lightly smiled. “It’s quite troublesome if we do things like that, and this is much better. Besides… I don’t wish to wait any longer.”
For the both of us to walk together smoothly, nothing is a better reason than this one. Opportunities can’t be begged for; these small wounds count as nothing.
Chu Liuyue felt a pang in her heart. For some reason, her nose started to turn sour.
Rong Xiu kissed her eyes. “If you don’t wish to see it, don’t look. We’ll be out very soon.”
However, Chu Liuyue shook her head. “No, it’s not that I don’t want to see it. I’m just…”
She paused before she whispered, “I can’t bear to see it.”
Even though her voice was low, it sounded determined.
Rong Xiu was dazed. Then, his face broke out into a smile. “Even if my entire body is covered with wounds, it’s worth that one sentence of yours.”
He then raised his hand and cut himself again.
Jiuyou Tower collapsed even more!
Rong Xiu held Chu Liuyue in his arms as the rocks landed everywhere.
Chu Liuyue leaned against Rong Xiu’s chest tightly, and her entire person was well-protected within his arms. She couldn’t see anything at all, but she could clearly hear the noises of destruction from the surroundings, as well as the sounds of rocks landing on Rong Xiu’s body…
A little while longer, and another while.
Chu Liuyue’s heart also seemed to be hit by something again and again, causing her to be unable to breathe.
She opened her eyes, and everything was black.
Rong Xiu… Rong Xiu… He has extraordinary abilities, and he can clearly sit around and just watch without doing anything. He could clearly… He is filled with ideas and strategies. With his abilities, it is as easy as ABC for him to come up with a believable explanation. However, he chose the most ‘stupid’ way.
Even though he previously said a few reasons in a teasing manner, Chu Liuyue knew that they weren’t important.
Everyone knew that she was the only one left in Jiuyou Tower after the strange happenings occurred.
In such a situation, Rong Xiu still chose to barge in. Anyone could guess his intentions.
If someone intentionally made an issue of this, it could become a big matter for her. But if she ‘saved’ Rong Xiu, nobody could say anything.
Thus, Rong Xiu had to be injured, and she had to bring him out.
The intense, bloody scent permeated her nose.
Chu Liuyue muttered, “Rong Xiu, it’ll be great if you didn’t come in. If…”
If you didn’t like me.
Rong Xiu hugged her even tighter. “There are no ifs.”
