That ball of red directly shot up to the sky, and it tore a hole in the Deep Xuan formation.
The red-tailed flood dragon let out an angry roar, but the red ball directly pierced through its tail.
The gigantic Deep Xuan formation was completely broken, and it dissipated into countless stars.
That thing is about to escape in front of my eyes! Chu Liuyue’s heart sank.
Just as she was about to chase after it, a silver sword suddenly pierced through the sky and landed.
The sword cut through the air, and it sounded like thunder beside one’s ears, which directly traveled to one’s heart.
As if sensing something, Chu Liuyue looked up. She saw the longsword draw a bright line across the sky as it landed on the red ball of light.
The sword’s blade pierced the ground and directly nailed it down.
Chu Liuyue’s eyes sparkled. An average longsword definitely can’t nail one’s soul, especially a soul this strong. That longsword clearly has some suppression encompassed within it since the soul was restricted totally.
Chu Liuyue was very familiar with the aura within it. She looked in the direction where the longsword came from and met a pair of deep eyes the next moment.
It was as if her heart struck something soft. It’s really him!
However, this feeling didn’t last for long. This was because she quickly discovered that the person beside Rong Xiu was actually… Qi Han!
The two of them are actually together?! Chu Liuyue’s heart skipped a few beats. Rong Xiu… Qi Han… What did they say?! Do they already know each other’s identities? It’s okay for Rong Xiu, but… what about Qi Han? Rong Xiu can cover the sky with one hand. If he really wants to know something…
Chu Liuyue stood there with many guesses in her mind, and the atmosphere at Rong Xiu and Qi Han’s side became intense again.
“Why did you suddenly take action?!” Qi Han questioned solemnly as he suddenly turned around. Earlier, Rong Xiu clearly said that Her Highness could single-handedly settle all of this, so I suppressed my inner worries and did not rush forward. But in the blink of an eye, Rong Xiu actually took action without any warning.
Rong Xiu glanced at Qi Han and smiled lightly. “Because… I’m her fiancé!”
Qi Han slightly widened his eyes and instantly realized something. “You did it on purpose?!”
This way, Rong Xiu smoothly became the first person that helped Her Highness!
Rong Xiu raised his saber-like eyebrows. “I was just being considerate toward Yue’er.”
His tone was nonchalant as if he didn’t think of anything extra.
Qi Han did not talk for quite some time. Rong Xiu’s words aren’t illogical. Currently, Her Highness hasn’t returned to the Tianling Dynasty. If Her Highness’s plans are completely destroyed because of me, then I can only use my death to punish myself. But… Rong Xiu clearly has ulterior intentions.
“There won’t be a next time!” said Qi Han coldly.
Rong Xiu’s brows moved slightly, and he smiled with deep meaning. “Yue’er is my fiancée. I should do all of this.”
Qi Han clenched his fists. If it weren’t for the fact that I know that Her Highness really likes Prince Li, I would definitely take action. I really don’t know what Her Highness sees in him!
Seeing that Qi Han and Rong Xiu seemed to be talking, Chu Liuyue became even more curious. But she was quite some distance away from them, so she couldn’t hear them at all.
She was determined to clearly question them after cleaning up this mess.
Thinking of this, she walked to the longsword and used her fire to surround the soul.
A terrible cry was instantly heard.
Chu Liuyue glanced at the small fireball and shockingly discovered that that person’s aura seemed to be rapidly depleting.
“The Heavenly Square Cauldron’s karmic fire can burn many things, especially this soul.” The legendary three-eyed eagle’s voice suddenly reverberated in her heart. “As long as it is stored in the Heavenly Square Cauldron, it will disappear very quickly.”
“Really? Then won’t you—” Chu Liuyue widened her eyes. The legendary three-eyed eagle’s body was destroyed and is only left with a soul, but it has still stayed there for thousands of years, right?
“How can these cheap humans be compared to me?” The legendary three-eyed eagle’s voice was filled with unconcealable pride.
Chu Liuyue thought about it and agreed. The legendary three-eyed eagle is a legendary fiend after all, and ordinary cultivators naturally can’t compare to it. Even though… the cultivator seems to be pretty experienced…
“You want his strength?”
From the soul’s cries, she already heard that it seemingly belonged to a middle-aged man.
The legendary three-eyed eagle was silent for a while before admitting to it. “Yes, the strength in his body can help me recover.”
Chu Liuyue slightly smiled. It’s pretty honest.
Ever since she discussed with the legendary three-eyed eagle and settled on helping it, their relationship wasn’t as harsh as before.
It was a good thing in her eyes.
Something popped up in her mind as she summoned the fireball into her body and threw the soul into the Heavenly Square Cauldron.
Once the blood-red ball appeared, endless transparent flames went forward and completely drowned it.
“Ah!” The painful screams became even more miserable, but they very quickly died down.
“Leave him alive,” said Chu Liuyue in her heart. Perhaps I can find out something from it. No matter if it is the bronze cauldron, the goatskin scroll, or the reaction he gave when he saw the dagger that Rong Xiu gave me…
Chu Liuyue drew out the longsword in one shot.
Suddenly, her shoulders sank, and Tuan Zi rushed out.
Chu Liuyue smiled and touched its forehead. From the corner of her eyes, she saw Xue Xue sprawled on the floor.
Xue Xue glanced at the longsword in her hands from time to time.
“Xue Xue, thank you for today.” Chu Liuyue roughly knew what it was thinking, and she smiled and walked toward it.
Xue Xue then went near her, and its gaze scanned her wrist. It felt its heart ache as it gently licked it.
Chu Liuyue’s heart tingled. “They’re all superficial wounds. It’ll be better after I rest—”
Thunder rumbled within the clouds.
A figure shot up to the sky from Qinghe Hall.
Chu Liuyue focused on it and was instantly stunned. That person is actually Emperor Jiawen! The key point is that he seems to be breaking through and becoming a peak stage-six warrior!
