Chapter 710: Reunion!
Tuan Zi’s figure instantly disappeared, and the energy wave that was about to hit Chu Liuyue seemed to be stopped by a large invisible hand as it quickly retracted.
Confused, Chu Liuyue looked at the empty space in front of her and the barrier that faintly shone with a few ripples. W-what’s going on… Not only did Tuan Zi disappear, but even the energy that spread to this point can be retracted?
Chu Liuyue closed her eyes and took another close look to confirm that she wasn’t seeing things. Everything that happened previously… is real! Tuan Zi actually… barged in safely?
She clearly saw that when Tuan Zi entered, it didn’t suffer any threat or harm. It was as if… As if it entered naturally like it’s a no man’s land.
But at this point, Chu Liuyue could still clearly feel the tremendous suppression coming from the barrier. Why did Tuan Zi—
At this moment, Chu Liuyue suddenly felt a wave of energy circling her.
She knitted her brows and immediately wanted to retaliate, but she suddenly realized something as she was about to make a move and turned around to look.
A man stood in the woods.
That man was tall and big, and his back and shoulders were straight. Like Lei Laosi, he was wearing sack clothes. He looked like he was in his thirties, and his appearance was normal. When placed in a crowd, he definitely couldn’t be identified.
At this point, he was staring straight at Chu Liuyue.
To be more accurate, he was staring at the place where Tuan Zi disappeared in front of Chu Liuyue.
In his narrow slits, his gaze deepened as if it was a dark and quiet well that was unaffected.
Chu Liuyue’s heart tingled suddenly. This man’s gaze seems a bit familiar… This should be the ‘Big Brother’ that Lei Laosi was referring to.
That man waved his sleeves, and Chu Liuyue’s body uncontrollably moved a distance. In the blink of an eye, she was a few steps away from that man.
Then, the energy silently disappeared.
The two of them looked at each other.
Chu Liuyue’s heart sank. This man’s abilities definitely aren’t weaker than that of Lei Laosi. He might even be stronger than him! Who are these two people? Why would they guard a Nine-Colored Heavenly Pheasant in such a dangerous and deserted Mystic Forest?
From the moment she saw the Nine-Colored Heavenly Pheasant’s wing, she knew that its abilities were formidable and that it didn’t even need these two people to guard them.
Even if it’s to ensure that it is well-protected while it’s breaking through to become a legendary fiend, as a Nine-Colored Heavenly Pheasant, countless fiends would pounce forward to help it with just one command. Why must it choose two humans? Even though these two are indeed quite strong, judging from the current situation, both men aren’t the Nine-Colored Heavenly Pheasant’s master.
No matter if one considers it from the Nine-Colored Heavenly Pheasant’s perspective or the duo’s perspective, this incident is very strange.
Just as Chu Liuyue was thinking about this, the man opposite scrutinized her silently.
“Is that blood ferret the fiend you have an agreement with?” he asked. His tone was calm, but his voice was a little hoarse.
Chu Liuyue nodded. Who can’t tell this? Isn’t it obvious?
Upon seeing this, the man squinted his narrow eyes, and something rippled in his eyes.
Chu Liuyue felt that something was off. This man… seems to be looking at my face? What’s there to look at on my face?
For someone who could reach such a cultivation level, Chu Liuyue wouldn’t think that he was tempted because of her appearance. It seemed like he was seeing another person through her.
“Your fiend is pretty interesting,” he said with a laugh.
Chu Liuyue couldn’t guess what he meant at that moment, so she decisively looked up and stared straight at him. “You can just directly ask whatever you want to know.”
That man raised his brows slightly as if he didn’t expect Chu Liuyue to be this direct.
He then raised his hands suddenly.
Chu Liuyue’s expression changed slightly.
For some reason, she didn’t feel threatened or uneasy at all even though she knew that this man was very strong, to the extent that he could kill her with one move. It seemed like she… was sure that the other party wouldn’t hurt her for some reason.
She had always been meticulous. Normally, she wouldn’t feel this way toward a stranger that suddenly showed up.
Chu Liuyue looked into his eyes, and a white light suddenly flashed across her mind. Hang on! Could this man be—
“Even the two of us can’t enter this barrier.” The man in front suddenly spoke when his hand brushed past Chu Liuyue’s ear and pointed behind her.
A sudden impact sound was heard.
Chu Liuyue suppressed her feelings and turned around to take a look.
But it was Lei Laosi who stopped Shangguan Wan once again.
The two people held short weapons, and they started fighting!
Shangguan Wan took a step first, but Lei Laosi was stronger. They dealt with each other, and they kept ending up in a stalemate.
Of course, Shangguan Wan wasn’t as good as him. She quickly became disadvantaged and was repeatedly defeated by Lei Laosi.
If it weren’t for her black shield, she wouldn’t have been able to take it early on.
Seeing that she was about to fail, Shangguan Wan hurriedly turned around and begged for help from Mu Qinghe and Elder Qiuxi. “Lieutenant Mu! Elder Qiuxi! What are you doing there? Quickly, come and help me!”
Elder Qiuxi only hesitated for a moment before immediately going forward. But the moment he took a step out, a light flashed before his body.
Something brushed past the tip of his nose and landed!
A fiery sensation came over, which made Elder Qiuxi instinctively take a step back.
He looked down and saw a palm-sized metal plate that pierced into the ground in front of him.
If it were a little off, his feet would’ve been destroyed!
Elder Qiuxi’s entire body broke out into cold sweat. It’s just a deserted metal plate, yet it has such formidable strength. This man’s abilities… are indeed terrifying!
Jiang Yucheng sat down cross-legged behind Elder Qiuxi. He was resting at the side and finally waited until the excruciating pain in his stomach disappeared before he simply treated his wounds. He finally managed to tidy his body’s force with much difficulty and recovered a portion of his abilities.
Seeing Shangguan Wan come over, he was upset in his heart but didn’t show it.
Just as he was about to walk over with Elder Qiuxi, he met with this attack.
Jiang Yucheng stood up, looked at the man that suddenly appeared, and slowly knitted his brows. There are only a few people with such abilities in the Tianling Dynasty! Who exactly is this person—
Hong! Hong! Hong!
A shockingly loud sound came from within the barrier.
The last circle of rainbow light at the top was rapidly dispersing.
Under everyone’s stares, the large barrier finally became completely transparent.
The gigantic and thick rolling leaf fir stood up straight, and a beautiful and distinguished Nine-Colored Heavenly Pheasant stood above.
It was like the brilliant evening light shining from the sky—extremely elegant and stunning.
There was a slight burn mark on its body, but it was rapidly healing. Its aura was also strengthening swiftly!
It was about to break through and become a legendary fiend!
Suddenly, that Nine-Colored Heavenly Pheasant slowly lowered its head and looked at Chu Liuyue.
As if sensing something, Chu Liuyue looked up.
The two of them exchanged glances.
Chu Liuyue’s heart shook, and a shout jumped out of her throat! “Little Nine!”
