Chapter 975: Okay?
His voice was very weak, so nobody else heard it other than himself. However, this wasn’t important. The important thing was the person in front of him!
Qiang Wanzhou didn’t dare to believe it as he hurriedly shut his eyes, wanting to see clearer.
At this moment, that person had already walked to him and stretched out her hand. “Little Zhou, are you okay?”
He had heard this voice once many years ago, but it had already been too long. It didn’t even sound in his dreams any longer.
There seemed to be warm liquid circulating in Qiang Wanzhou’s chest as his heart beat so intensely that his ears hurt. He almost instinctively reached forward with a hint of anxiety.
It was cold and soft to touch, but it had some sort of immense strength to it.
Tears welled up in Qiang Wanzhou’s eyes, and the scene before him turned slightly blurry.
He harshly closed his eyes and opened them again. This time, it was finally clear.
He clutched onto that hand tightly, terrified that she would leave silently again. But just as he was about to say something, a familiar face entered his view.
Chu Liuyue—oh no, it’s Shangguan Yue!
Qiang Wanzhou’s actions suddenly stiffened.
Chu Liuyue looked at him strangely.
It seemed like he had just experienced a huge battle as he was covered in bloodstains, and he looked very frail. His white, almost transparent face had bits of dust and bloodstains on it, looking rather unkempt. Those overly beautiful eyes were stained with a hint of red.
She clearly saw that his eyes were filled with great elation—it was as though a traveler walking through the desert had finally found an oasis or someone who was treading in the darkness had finally found the light.
However, it was only for a moment. The oasis was dry, and the light disappeared.
The brightness in his eyes instantly dimmed. His expression looked… rather amiss.
“Little Zhou?” called Chu Liuyue again.
This time, Qiang Wanzhou finally recovered his senses. His expression quickly faded away as he became that inhibited and shy young man again.
A vague guess surfaced in Chu Liuyue’s heart. Did… Qiang Wanzhou mistake me for someone else? I’m afraid only that person can cause him to act this way, right?
She sighed in her heart, but she didn’t ask further. Instead, Chu Liuyue said seriously, “Don’t worry, I’m here to bring you back.”
Qiang Wanzhou’s heart seemed to tingle as he looked up and gazed at her deeply. “…Okay.”
Chu Liuyue took his pulse and realized that his inner force seemed to be exhausted and that he was severely injured on the inside!
She was taken aback. “How did you get this wound?”
Qiang Wanzhou knitted his brows. “I got it right here.”
Here? Chu Liuyue surveyed the surroundings. Other than the slightly more dangerous turbulence in the space, there doesn’t seem to be anything else… He looks like he has a superficial injury, but his internal organs are much more severely impacted than his superficial ones. This isn’t normal at all.
“No matter what, let’s leave here first.” Then, Chu Liuyue was about to bring him back.
But the moment she turned around, she realized a transparent barrier formed by a water current had appeared in front of her.
Chu Liuyue was dazed. I recalled that this didn’t exist when I first came here…
All the forces from the surrounding spaces swarmed over and caused waves of ripples in the barrier.
A very uneasy feeling overwhelmed Chu Liuyue as she instinctively took a step back. “Little Zhou, it’s dangerous—”
When she said this, she turned around and realized that Qiang Wanzhou’s figure had completely disappeared! The same transparent barrier replaced it!
Chu Liuyue surveyed the surroundings and realized that the barrier had formed a ball shape, which completely trapped her within.
“Hongyu?! Jian Fengchi?!”
However, nobody else responded. The most terrifying thing was that Chu Liuyue could even hear her own echo!
Her heart suddenly sank! I’ve been completely trapped here!
Chu Liuyue took a deep breath to calm herself down as she silently observed her surroundings.
This seemed to be a transparent barrier formed by water ripples. It wasn’t too big as she could casually take three or five steps forward before already reaching the end.
She looked up. If I haven’t recalled wrongly, Jian Fengchi was just there previously. However, his figure has completely disappeared.
In addition, the transparent barrier gradually became black in a short amount of time!
Finally, her surroundings were pitch black!
Chu Liuyue could clearly hear her breathing and her heart pumping.
She took a deep breath in and took a pearl, preparing to light up the surroundings. But after she took it out, an invisible force seemed to rush over from the surroundings, gradually squashing the fist-sized pearl!
Chu Liuyue immediately threw it out!
The moment it left her palm, that pearl was immediately squeezed by the strong force and silently turned into powder!
Chu Liuyue’s fingertips could even feel the terrifying and heavy suppression!
She immediately gave up on this idea and stood still in the darkness.
That strange force gradually approached her before leaving bit by bit.
If her fingertips didn’t hurt faintly, she would almost think that everything that previously happened was part of her hallucination!
Chu Liuyue took a deep breath in and started thinking of a way to escape.
But very quickly, a spot of light appeared in front of her. It was like a star in the night sky that sparkled brightly.
Chu Liuyue looked over.
Then, another one appeared beside that star. The third…
At this point, she then discovered that these spots of light didn’t come from the empty space but… from that barrier.
All these spots of light were weird and exuded a bright light as they pieced together bit by bit.
Chu Liuyue knitted her brows slightly and seriously looked at what was happening in front of her. Gradually, she discovered that these spots of light seemed to form a pattern.
She vaguely realized that it was a cliff—the cliff was extremely familiar.
Chu Liuyue suddenly thought of something, and her expression faltered.
Then, an octagonal pavilion appeared on that cliff!
It’s indeed that mysterious cliff that has appeared way too many times before! Chu Liuyue unwittingly clenched her fists tightly, and her entire body tensed up. I vaguely have a feeling that this scene should also be part of my memory!
The stars aligned above the octagonal pavilion, forming a figure.
It was a man’s back view, but at this point, he sat there with a chessboard in front of him as if he were playing chess.
And a second figure quickly appeared opposite him! It was clearly a woman with a thin figure and light hair, but her face was blocked by that man’s figure.
Hence, Chu Liuyue couldn’t see her clearly. However, she examined that woman’s figure, and her heart started beating very quickly!
An extremely familiar feeling surged up her heart!
At this point, that woman tilted her head and smiled brightly. “I’ll go back this time and tell Father about us, okay?”
That beautiful face and bright smile were exactly Shangguan Yue!
