Chapter 703: Hide
Jiang Yucheng’s tone had notes of doubt and shock, but his eyes were filled with unconcealable surprise. He clearly also didn’t expect that after taking a walk around hell, he actually reached this place directly!
I bumped into the ninth-grade fiend that is currently enduring the lightning! He kept thinking about it previously, and he could now see it once he looked up. How could he not be happy?
Chu Liuyue honestly nodded. He is already here, and the lightning keeps striking. Even an idiot can tell what kind of situation this is.
Jiang Yucheng stood up and wanted to walk over.
Chu Liuyue raised her brows slightly. Lei Laosi is guarding right there. It would really be a wonder if Jiang Yucheng can reach there safely. With his current abilities, he might not even be able to endure ten moves from Lei Laosi.
It was still Mu Qinghe who stopped him. “Eldest Young Master, it’s very dangerous there. Let’s stay here and observe what happens.”
Jiang Yucheng was quite upset in his heart. Chu Liuyue and the rest came over from there previously, but why can’t we go over now? My appearance is already humiliating enough. If we continue hiding here, won’t it show that we’re even more cowardly?
Jiang Yucheng didn’t listen to him and continued walking forward. But the moment he took two steps forward, he felt a burning sensation in his stomach area.
Jiang Yucheng’s face immediately paled as he stumbled back and almost fell onto the ground.
Mu Qinghe immediately went forward to help him up and furrowed his brows tightly. “Eldest Young Master, what’s the matter?”
Due to the excruciating pain, Jiang Yucheng’s forehead was filled with sweat. His lips were trembling slightly, and he couldn’t say anything.
He had also experienced this feeling several times before, but there wasn’t a single time that was as painful as this. It was as if a fire directly pierced through his stomach and entered his dantian.
It was also the first time Mu Qinghe saw Jiang Yucheng in such a state, and he thought that the latter was injured by the rolling leaf fir previously. “Eldest Young Master, you should rest a while first. Your health is more important!”
Even if Jiang Yucheng wanted to reject him, he couldn’t even say anything now.
Chu Liuyue looked at him strangely.
Jiang Yucheng had just forced himself to sit down cross-legged when he felt that burning sensation rapidly disappearing. However, that etching pain still reverberated throughout his mind and didn’t disperse for a long time.
Worry and fear finally surfaced in Jiang Yucheng’s heart. One time might be a coincidence, but what about the second and the third? There must be something wrong with my body!
But after much thinking, he still couldn’t figure out what exactly happened. Back then, that ‘Xia Mu’ just used a brush to leave a bloody hole in my body. In actual fact, it wasn’t a severe wound. As long as I properly recuperated, I should’ve recovered very quickly. But a period of time has passed, and my wound still hasn’t healed. Moreover, this weird burning sensation keeps occurring from time to time.
However, Jiang Yucheng didn’t dare to expose all of this in front of outsiders, so he could only briefly nod and didn’t say anything much.
Chu Liuyue suddenly felt that her neck was itchy, so she turned around and saw Tuan Zi pulling at her hair and shaking its tail as if it wanted to go back.
I wonder what exactly is there which makes it want to go back so badly… Chu Liuyue patted its head in comfort and looked at Jiang Yucheng. “Eldest Young Master Jiang, why don’t you rest here first, and we’ll go look at that ninth-grade fiend? The Third Princess came this time for the legendary fiend’s blood. If we just miss it like this, won’t it be a pity?”
Jiang Yucheng wanted to go there himself, but he really couldn’t do anything in his current state. Thus, he nodded and looked at Mu Qinghe. “You should go with them too.”
Mu Qinghe is stronger, and they will have a higher chance with him there.
Chu Liuyue’s eyelids twitched, but she didn’t say anything.
“Eldest Young Master, your body—” Mu Qinghe seemed hesitant.
“Just go ahead. I know my own condition myself.” Jiang Yucheng looked much sterner.
Mu Qinghe didn’t hesitate any longer and immediately agreed. “Yes.”
Chu Liuyue curled her lips into a smile. “With Lieutenant Mu around, we feel much more confident too.”
Mu Qinghe looked nonchalant and followed the rest over.
Hearing Chu Liuyue and the rest come back, Lei Laosi turned around to take a look.
With this look, he saw Mu Qinghe following behind the few of them.
Ferocious murderous intent immediately appeared in Lei Laosi’s eyes. I didn’t see him earlier, but I didn’t expect the incoming person to be him!
He held the hammer in his hands tightly, and the force around him strengthened.
Mu Qinghe seemed to have noticed something as he suddenly looked up.
The two of them stared straight into each other’s eyes.
Mu Qinghe immediately felt the intense murderous intent coming from the other party—it was as though the other was going to take action the next moment!
He knitted his brows slightly. Who is this? Why does he seem like he has a huge grudge against me?
Without waiting for Mu Qinghe to think much, a figure suddenly walked in front and blocked the other party’s vision.
It was Chu Liuyue.
Mu Qinghe’s gaze landed on Chu Liuyue.
But as if unintentional, Chu Liuyue yelled to that man, “Big Brother Lei!”
Hearing this, Lei Laosi suddenly recovered his senses, and the ferocious aura in his eyes diminished by quite a bit. However, his expression still made him seem like he wasn’t to be messed with.
Chu Liuyue walked to him, smiled, and said, “Big Brother Lei, don’t worry. This is the Lieutenant Mu I mentioned to you earlier. He came here with us, and he has no ill intentions.”
Lei Laosi looked at Chu Liuyue doubtfully. Her words… She seems to be hiding something?
Chu Liuyue looked at Mu Qinghe again and explained, “Lieutenant Mu, this is Big Brother Lei Laosi. He’s in charge of guarding this ninth-grade fiend.”
Lei Laosi immediately understood Chu Liuyue’s plan. She’s helping me hide my identity? I really can’t expose myself in front of Mu Qinghe now, but… How did Chu Liuyue know that?
Many doubts surfaced in Lei Laosi’s heart as he turned and looked in a certain direction before he rapidly retracted his gaze. He then took a deep breath in and suppressed the anger in his heart as he coldly glanced at Mu Qinghe.
He snickered. “Another one wants to join in the fun? I don’t care if he’s your lieutenant or whatever. All of you are to stand ten steps away, and you’re not allowed to enter!”
Mu Qinghe looked at his ferocious appearance and looked at the gigantic rainbow barrier behind him before squinting his eyes slightly. Why would a ninth-grade fiend get humans to help it guard… But this Lei Laosi does seem pretty competent. Within this area that is filled with terrifying suppression, it’s clear that he is moving around with more ease than us. It’s obvious that he has been here for quite a long time, and he might really have some relation to the ninth-grade fiend.
Chu Liuyue smiled and said, “Don’t worry. We’ll just watch from here, and we won’t do anything. Lieutenant Mu, am I right?”
Mu Qinghe paused for a moment and nodded.
Lei Laosi coldly chuckled. It’s currently a crucial moment, and there can’t be any mishaps. Mu Qinghe… It’s not too late if I teach him a lesson later!
Just as he was about to turn around, his gaze suddenly focused on a figure far away. “Who is that person?”
