Chu Liuyue chased the person that bumped into her the entire way, and she quickly left the bustling city.
The running man finally stopped when they entered an alley.
Chu Liuyue folded her arms. “Return me my things.”
The man turned around and looked at her ferociously as he waved the pouch he stole from Chu Liuyue. “If you want it, come and get it yourself.”
Chu Liuyue looked at the thin pouch and sighed gently. “Are you so sure that I have money with me?”
The man’s expression froze and suddenly thought of something. He hurriedly ripped open the pouch and found out that there was nothing inside except for a white handkerchief. Frustration flashed across his face, but it quickly disappeared as he smiled at Chu Liuyue cunningly.
“Do you really think that I’m targeting your money?” As he said that, he took out a dagger from his waist.
His murderous intentions were obvious. However, Chu Liuyue was not anxious at all. Instead, her face broke out into a meaningful smile.
The man was taken aback and immediately reacted after that. That pouch did not even have money in it. Even though it was stolen, Chu Liuyue shouldn’t have cared about it, but she still followed me. That means… she came here on purpose!
“You must be delusional to think that you can steal something from me with your middling skills. But since you wanted me here, I’ll accede to your request.” Chu Liuyue’s words made the man’s face contort.
“You must be tired of living!” As the man hollered, the dagger in his hands rapidly went towards Chu Liuyue.
Stage-four warrior! The moment he struck, Chu Liuyue swiftly inferred his capabilities. She squinted her eyes. It seems like the missing Song Lian’s trio made the person backing them fear me. This time, they directly sent a stage-four warrior to kill me.
Chu Liuyue stood with her legs apart and rapidly moved back half a step. Her right leg bent slightly as she went on her tip-toes and suddenly exerted her strength.
Her seemingly gentle and thin body was actually filled with shocking tenacity and explosive power as she unleashed it within a moment.
She actually chose to go against a stage-four warrior head-on.
Chu Liuyue kicked the man’s wrist with one foot.
The man’s hands turned quickly, and he immediately used the dagger to stab Chu Liuyue’s foot.
A crisp sound was made.
That man only felt a strong impact from Chu Liuyue’s feet, making his entire body turn numb.
His dagger directly slipped out of his hands and left shocking traces.
What’s going on? The man was stunned; he immediately looked up to see cold, sharp, and vague glimmers coming from the bottom of Chu Liuyue’s shoes.
That was… a cast iron blade!
Before he could carefully think about why Chu Liuyue had such a weapon on her, he suddenly felt excruciating pain.
The sharp weapon cut across his wrist and sliced off a piece of his flesh in no time.
“Ah!” He yelled out in pain and quickly moved backward. He looked down to see his entire arm already bloody.
Chu Liuyue landed on the ground and shook her head with some sort of dissatisfaction upon seeing the scenario. “It’s still not sharp enough…”
She long knew that danger loomed all around her, so she was very careful about her words and actions. As her strength had not recovered yet, she used other aspects to increase her combat skills.
She specifically asked Chu Ning for the blades hidden in her shoes.
If her attack was successful, the man’s entire wrist would’ve been cut off directly.
It was a pity that the cast iron blade was not of good quality, so she could only make do with it.
Seeing her calm expression, the injured man was frustrated and furious. He was a stage-four warrior no matter what, yet he was defeated by an invalid. His superiors had instructed him to find a way to catch Chu Liuyue; he could not fail at his task no matter what.
Thinking of this, his eyes flashed as he sneered. “So the rumored weak and useless Big Chu Missy is actually this harsh… It’s a pity that you’re still nothing in terms of real capabilities, no matter what kind of tricks you have up your sleeves.”
He bellowed and threw his dagger aside. He then crossed his arms and started circulating his internal force.
A green wind blade rapidly formed around his body. An enormous, forceful suppression exuded from his body.
This suppression made the already narrow alley seem even smaller.
“Breeze Chop!” The man’s voice boomed, and the green wind blade chopped down towards Chu Liuyue at the speed of lightning.
A clear, white crack appeared on the bluestone as the wind blade headed straight for Chu Liuyue.
Chu Liuyue flew up, and the howling winds deafened her ears.
The strong suppression she felt made her head whir; her moves were much slower than before.
The fourth stage was the watershed for warriors. Even though warriors of the first three stages could absorb Heaven and Earth Force, it was just to strengthen their bodies and energy.
Only stage-four warriors and stronger could circulate the accumulated force within their bodies and execute an explosive attack.
A stage-three warrior could not even be compared to a stage-four warrior in terms of attack strength or attack speed.
This Breeze Chop instantly forced Chu Liuyue into a corner.
Chu Liuyue even felt her glabella hurting slightly.
Her eyes stared at the green wind blade closely; her muscles tightened as she held her breath and waited.
Her strong eyesight and rich fighting experience were the only reasons why she could win against Song Lian and the rest with her identity as an invalid. With these two things, one could make up for the difference between an average person and a stage-three warrior. However, stage-four warriors were different.
The other party could imbue his force into an attack. Thus, it was very difficult for her to win. Even though her Yuan meridian had already recovered, she had not gathered much force. She could not even compete with the other party in this aspect.
She could only look for the man’s shortcomings.
The green wind blade flew up quickly.
Chu Liuyue’s waist bent backward, and her body was almost parallel to the floor.
The next moment, she used one hand to push against the ground with her strength to flip around, barely avoiding the attack.
The green wind blade struck the ground behind her and caused a crack to appear.
“You really know how to dodge!” The man was very surprised to see this, and the murderous intent in his eyes grew. “No wonder Song Lian and the rest fell in your hands.”
Something flashed across Chu Liuyue’s eyes secretively. As expected! I haven’t even found them, but the other party has sent themselves to my door.
Her gaze quickly swept past the man. “It seems like your master is Song Lian’s true backer.”
The man was stunned for a while. He then started laughing loudly as if he heard a joke. “You’re pretty smart! What a pity, the smarter you are, the more you have to die!”
Chu Liuyue wanted to find out more, but she suddenly felt a cold impact at the back of her head.
She flew forward without thinking.
A deep trench appeared at the place where she was standing initially.
The remains of the strong attack caused blood to rise through her chest.
She immediately raised her head to look and saw the man who yelled ‘catch the thief’ blocking the alley’s entrance.
The key was that he was also a stage-four warrior.
“Die!” The duo’s eyes met, and they rushed to attack Chu Liuyue at the same time.
The cold and harsh murderous aura immediately buried her.
