Qiao Yanjue kicked the man away.
The man screamed when kicked in the stomach, then fainted after dropping to the ground.
Qiao Yanjue’s bodyguard and driver also ran over, but before they could join the battle, Qiao Yanjue and Xia Xibei had already teamed up to handle these people.
“Watch them,” Qiao Yanjue instructed in a cold voice. His eyes, trained on those people, held a lethal intent.
Xia Xibei frowned and walked over. She took Qiao Yanjue’s hand, and the first thing she asked was, “Why are you so weak?”
She didn’t think much of those people just now. Even if there was a knife, it couldn’t hurt her.
But who would have thought that Qiao Yanjue was so weak? Did that powerful and all-conquering Lord Jue even exist?
The expression on Qiao Yanjue’s face suddenly froze.
He didn’t expect Xia Xibei to despise him even after he was injured.
He suppressed the frustration in his heart, looking a little pitiful.
“I didn’t think that much just now.”
After talking, he kept silent and bit his lower lip slightly, seemingly aggrieved.
When he looked so gentle and wronged, Xia Xibei decided not to be as tough as before.
“I didn’t need your help; I could take care of it myself!”
Xia Xibei took his hand for a closer look. There was a wound and a lot of blood coming from it, but it was just a surface injury.
Qiao Yanjue smiled when he heard Xia Xibei’s tone softening.
But when she looked up, he instantly looked as wronged as before.
“It’s fine. I’ll go back and deal with it myself.” He pulled his hand back. “You get some rest.”
“Shut up,” Xia Xibei rolled her eyes at him. “Come with me.”
She started to leave and Qiao Yanjue hurried to keep up with her, walking briskly.
Watching this scene, the driver and the bodyguard next to him exchanged horrified looks. Was their young master possessed?!
However, they didn’t dare say anything. They could only go off to the side, while also punching the yelping men in order to shut them up.
Didn’t they see that their young master was doing important things?! So, they better shut up!
Soon, the two of them returned to Xia Xibei’s home.
“Sit.” Xia Xibei quickly took out her medical kit. “Give me your hand.”
Qiao Yanjue stretched out his hand, which was still oozing blood, docilely.
Xia Xibei’s movements were brisk. She stopped the bleeding, disinfected it, applied medicine, and wrapped it with gauze… It only took a few minutes.
After making a beautiful bow, Xia Xibei put away the medical kit.
“I didn’t expect this place to be so dangerous,” Qiao Yanjue commented, looking for something to say.
“This is the first time.” Xia Xibei put the things away. “It’s not as dangerous as your experiences.”
Qiao Yanjue almost suffocated. He had nothing to say.
When it came to the number of times he had encountered danger, he really had his fair share.
“Do you need help with this?”
This time, he didn’t dare make decisions for Xia Xibei.
He understood it now, and he would never lose sight of it anymore—this girl didn’t like being manhandled!
Although it was a bit awkward to pretend to be so soft, if he continued to treat her so hard… The result would be unthinkable.
“No, I’ll do it myself.” Xia Xibei walked to the door. “Okay, you should go.”
Qiao Yanjue was puzzled, but still followed her.
Soon, the two of them returned to their previous location.
Those people had not been taken away, nor were the police called.
Xia Xibei walked up to them and pulled out their boss. Without waiting for him to speak, she grabbed his arm and broke it fiercely at the joint.
The man’s screams suddenly pierced the sky, awakening the surrounding birds and all the residents.
