Suddenly, Chu Liuyue didn’t know what to say. Punishment? Shangguan Yue is already dead, and she died so miserably. What punishment can she give him?
Chu Liuyue also wanted to tell herself that Mu Qinghe didn’t betray her. But when she saw the scene in front of her, it repeatedly proved that Mu Qinghe had already been standing on the opposite side before she died.
If not, it couldn’t explain what happened later.
Mu Qinghe was still the respected and distinguished lieutenant. It was as if her death had no impact on him at all.
Even the pair of boots he was wearing…
Chu Liuyue felt sour.
Mu Qinghe looked like he was in a lot of pain, to the point where Chu Liuyue almost thought that he was truly feeling regretful and sorrowful toward her.
However, how could this compare to all the torture she had suffered?
Chu Liuyue once again suppressed her turbulent heart. No matter what, I can’t trust Mu Qinghe again. Luckily, he didn’t seem to recognize my voice earlier. If not, it would spell trouble.
This silver pyramid was indeed special. From here, she could see what was happening in almost the entire imperial mausoleum, and the people inside could hear her voice.
It seemed like this small item had control over the entire imperial mausoleum.
An urge welled up in Chu Liuyue’s heart as she raised her hand toward the silver pyramid.
Before she could touch it, she heard the strange sound again.
Chu Liuyue paused in her movements. I heard it clearly this time. This sound indeed came from the silver pyramid!
An idea popped up in her mind as she walked to the other side.
From where she was standing previously, she could only see three faces of the pyramid; she couldn’t see the last one.
And that sound… seemed to be coming from that direction.
Chu Liuyue focused on it and was stunned. There’s nothing on the last face! No, to put it more accurately, the last face is thoroughly covered in black.
The other three faces were clean and pure, and she could see any scene clearly. However, this…
Chu Liuyue turned back and realized this was the ‘fire’ position.
The red dragon head still had water circulating within the lake as if nothing was wrong.
However, Chu Liuyue felt uneasy for some reason.
This pyramid should be able to see the entire imperial mausoleum, but one face is blocked. This also means that I won’t be able to know what’s happening in the ‘fire’ position. This is definitely not a coincidence. A ridiculous idea surfaced in Chu Liuyue’s mind. Could it be… Someone has already entered that place and did something to stop me from seeing what is going on?
Upon thinking of this, Chu Liuyue’s heart squeezed together. Even with Mu Qinghe’s abilities, he can’t do this. Therefore, who else can? What is the other party afraid of me seeing?
Chu Liuyue entered deep thought. The next moment, she clenched her teeth and took the silver pyramid.
It was extremely cold to the touch.
The coldness spread from within, and it started extending its reach at an observable speed, completely covering her palm.
Chu Liuyue was shocked, and she immediately wanted to let go.
But at this point, the water droplet in her dantian started turning crazily.
A red fire suddenly exploded in Chu Liuyue’s palm.
The two forces harshly smashed against one another.
Shards of ice flew everywhere.
Fire sparks went up.
Chu Liuyue felt that her entire palm was completely numb, and she couldn’t feel anything. It was as if she was harshly dragged in front uncontrollably.
The pyramid was finally fully captured by her, and it left its original position.
The red fire poured out, completely covering the pyramid.
With this layer of protection, Chu Liuyue was finally separated from the terrifying aura.
Chu Liuyue heaved a sigh of relief when she saw that the item was finally trapped within the fire.
The coldness within wasn’t normal! If she were any slower, her palm would’ve been frozen.
But the moment her lips curled up, they froze.
The position that the pyramid previously occupied actually froze. Also, the frost kept spreading toward the surroundings.
Chu Liuyue immediately backed away, but the area was freezing at very high speeds. In the blink of an eye, it had already extended to the black marble floor from mid-air.
The frightening suppression came toward her.
Chu Liuyue was suppressed until she couldn’t breathe.
Very quickly, she was forced to the edge of the platform. One of her legs was in mid-air, which made her body wobble.
Chu Liuyue stabilized herself with much difficulty, but as her actions were too hurried, the hairpin on her head fell into the lake.
Chu Liuyue instinctively looked down. However, the scene she saw made her heart stop beating.
The hairpin didn’t make any sound when it fell into the lake. This was because the hairpin quickly froze the moment it touched the lake.
In the blink of an eye, that hairpin became a floating ice cube on the lake before it sank to the bottom silently.
Everything happened rapidly.
The clear lake water was still peaceful as if the falling of the hairpin had no effect on it.
It was also at this point that she saw the bottom layer of the lake sparkling brightly.
Chu Liuyue focused on it, and she was immediately shocked.
At the bottom of this clear lake were ice cubes in all sorts of shapes. Those stars were actually reflected from these shards of ice.
Chu Liuyue suddenly felt coldness spreading from the bottom of her feet. If I really fall from here…
The sound of something cracking came from behind.
Chu Liuyue immediately looked behind and shockingly discovered that the upper side of the black marble platform was completely frozen. It had even spread to under her feet.
That sound was made because the platform couldn’t withstand such strength, so it started cracking.
The fire in Chu Liuyue’s hand was still burning intensely, but she could still feel her entire body turn cold.
The entire space seemed to turn into a gigantic ice ball as the terrifying coldness spread in all directions.
Chu Liuyue clenched her teeth and forced the fire to form a barrier around her. By doing this, she finally blocked the harsh air outside.
However, everything in the surroundings didn’t freeze slower because of what she did. The area was still being frozen, and it finally spread to the lake.
After a temporary silence, the lake began freezing, starting from the black platform in the middle.
When thick ice covered the lake, Chu Liuyue’s heart seemed to be tightly squeezed.
The next moment, the ice layer was filled with cracks.
All the ice started dropping silently. At the same time, the clear lake crashed forward and quickly swallowed the ice pieces.
The black platform below Chu Liuyue’s feet finally collapsed, and her body fell down uncontrollably.
