Chu Liuyue originally thought that he would directly go over, but when the person moved the next moment, something dropped from his hands.
Under the moonlight, that item reflected a light glow.
A light fragrance wafted over.
Chu Liuyue was shocked. This is phosphorus powder! One just has to light it gently to ignite a large fire! Is this person… planning to burden down Blessing Palace? However, this is only the exterior of Blessing Palace. If he pours phosphorous powder here, it won’t burn to the interior. What does he want?
Suddenly, the side door to Blessing Palace opened.
Chu Liuyue immediately looked up.
A figure came out from inside.
Chu Liuyue’s gaze focused.
It was Emperor Jiawen! After much thought, the only person who could make such a big move in the palace was him.
As she was far away and a big part of his face was hidden in the darkness, Chu Liuyue couldn’t see his expression clearly.
Emperor Jiawen raised his hand and pointed before turning back to leave.
When his figure disappeared, there were still two auras amongst the few auras earlier. It was clear that the remaining people were left to guard the place.
Chu Liuyue narrowed her eyes. There aren’t many people in the palace. Who can make Emperor Jiawen waste so much effort to lock them up meticulously?
When she thought of Situ Yan—who she had seen earlier—and his terrible expression: The person locked here should be Situ Xingchen! Emperor Jiawen clearly wants to get something out of her, but judging from his appearance, there shouldn’t be much progress.
Chu Liuyue looked at the mysterious person in front. He must’ve known that Situ Xingchen was locked here, so he purposely attracted me over! But why did he do this?
Without waiting for Chu Liuyue to ask, that person silently walked in another direction. His steps looked slow, but his speed was high as he perfectly hid his tracks.
If it weren’t for Chu Liuyue following him closely, she wouldn’t be able to recognize his movements.
For some reason, she seemed to guess that person’s thoughts. So when he gradually got nearer to Blessing Palace, she stayed rooted to the ground instead.
With her current cultivation level, she would only become a shield if she went over. She would also definitely attract those hidden warriors’ attention. Hence, she rather not do anything and silently observe the situation.
Very quickly, that person’s figure disappeared behind one of the pillars at the edge of Blessing Palace.
Chu Liuyue held her breath.
Suddenly, a formidable suppression quickly came from midair.
Chu Liuyue immediately looked up, and she saw a man in gray walking over through the air.
The man wore a hat that covered his face, so she couldn’t see his appearance. But judging from his slightly crooked back, he seemed to be quite old.
When he appeared, three figures immediately appeared around Blessing Palace, surrounding the elder in gray in the middle. “Who are you? How dare you trespass into Country Yao Chen’s palace!”
Chu Liuyue narrowed her eyes. The trio was clearly sent over by Emperor Jiawen to guard this place, and the three of them are all stage-five warriors.
One could count the number of stage-five warriors in the entire Country Yao Chen, yet Emperor Jiawen left three of them here. This clearly showed how sternly he wanted to guard Situ Xingchen.
This stance was enough to block most of the trespassers, but… that elder in gray was a stage higher than them.
The higher one’s cultivation level, the larger the difference between the two parties. Even if the three of them joined hands, they might not be this elder’s match.
“I came here today just to bring one person away. If you’re sensible, I won’t make it difficult for you,” said the elder in gray lightly. His voice was hoarse, but his tone was calm with an almighty aura as if he was commanding them.
He clearly came to snatch the person away, but he arrogantly said that he wouldn’t make it difficult for the other party.
A thought popped up in Chu Liuyue’s head. This person clearly came for Situ Xingchen, but his identity is quite difficult to guess.
“How dare you? Where do you think you are? How can you come and go as you please!” The trio was clearly enraged by the elder’s words as they looked at each other and rushed over.
“I’ll teach you a lesson today!”
Facing the trio’s simultaneous explosion of attacks, the elder in gray seemed not to care. He chuckled lowly with unconcealable mockery. “Just based on you?”
Seeing the trio getting closer and closer, he still didn’t move.
“Kill!” Three forces were sent out in unison.
Just as he was about to be hit, the elder finally raised his hand. His palm was especially big and thick; it was like a fan that landed silently.
A gigantic silver palm print appeared in front of him.
“Mountain River Print!” hollered that elder.
The silver palm print immediately came down.
The next moment, the three forces split apart and completely disappeared.
The terrifying forces spread in all directions. At this time, the elder’s hand slowly curved as he contained all the crazy forces.
Everything happened silently, which made the trio’s faces change. How can a stage-six warrior be so strong?!
“Go!” The elder in gray waved his palm lightly, and a horrifying force shot out from it.
That giant palm print gradually disappeared, leaving behind a silver ring that kept expanding toward the surroundings.
“Flee quickly!” The trio sensed that something was amiss and immediately wanted to escape.
However, it was too late!
The silver ring was very formidable, and it suffocated them as all of them were respectively frozen to the spot.
No matter how much they struggled, they couldn’t move and could only allow the silver ring to suppress them.
One of them couldn’t take it anymore and spat out a mouthful of blood.
The other two were no better as their faces were pale, and they couldn’t say anything.
“You don’t know your limits!” The elder in gray laughed coldly and moved his palm.
“You! Don’t—Ah!” Before the person who struggled to speak could finish his sentence, a strange light glowed on the ring and pierced through his chest.
Following a low sound, his body flew toward the back and harshly landed on the ground.
Chu Liuyue meticulously controlled her aura as many guesses surfaced in her mind. This person is very arrogant to come over so boldly. It was one against three, yet he won so easily!
That elder in gray clearly didn’t care about those few people. After settling them, he directly went for Blessing Palace’s main entrance.
But just as he was about to enter, a gigantic Xuan formation suddenly appeared above Blessing Palace and covered it.
The elder in gray finally stopped. This was because this Xuan formation was very hard to deal with!
But Chu Liuyue—who was hiding in the dark—had her eyes light up. I can use the Xuan formation to enter Blessing Palace!
