“Secret.” Baili Hongzhuang smiled and didn’t explain.
Even though she had an explanation, it’d be hard for Gong Shaoqing and the rest to believe it…
Dongfang Yu rested his hand on Baili Hongzhuang’s shoulder and smiled widely, “How you avoided them isn’t important. It’s enough that you’re safe!”
Seeing this, Gong Shaoqing didn’t continue his questioning.
But this new little martial sister just seemed to be filled with mystery.
Running into a dead end after a narrow escape from the demonic beast tide, yet still coming out completely unharmed… it was truly unimaginable.
Liu Qinyue stared at Baili Hongzhaung, her clear, soft eyes twinkling with doubt before finally disappearing.
“Let’s go back.” Gong Shaoqing slowly spoke, “It’s impossible to continue out past the entrance so let’s just go back now.”
After going through so many twists and turns, they were also extremely exhausted. They didn’t know when the Demonic Beast Tide would finish, so the earlier they left, the better.
Baili Hongzhaung and the rest didn’t object. Running practically all day and all night had left them completely drained them. Resting was the best course of action.
The 4 returned to Azure Water School. Because of the Demonic Beast Tide, no demonic beasts tried to attack them.
Hei Mu stared at the empty cliff, his eyes filled with terror. His attractive face was completely ashen.
He peered down the cliff, the clouds and mist hindering his sight. Underneath, there was a cool drizzle.
If Baili Hongzhuang fell off from here, there was simply no chance of survival.
The young master had instructed him to carefully guard Baili Hongzhaung before he left so for the past few days, he had always been secretly watching her.
In order to not influence Baili Hongzhaung’s training, he made sure to keep a set distance from Baili Hongzhuang. Baili Hongzhuang’s performance was always stunning and never needed his help.
But he never expected that there would suddenly be a Demonic Beast Wave.
Even though he was powerful, the Demonic Beast Tide was still extremely difficult to deal with. Although he desperately wanted to save Baili Hongzhaung, they were simply too far away.
Baili Hongzhaung was the woman his Young Master liked, ah!
Hei Mu kneeled beside the cliff, his dark eyes filled with despair and self-blame.
His young master trusted him and gave Miss Baili for him to protect. But not only did he fail to protect Miss Baili, but even let her die in the Demonic Beast Tide.
Thinking up to here, he hated that it wasn’t him who had fallen off the cliff. Like this, what face would he have when he saw the Young Master?
But he couldn’t do anything. Even if he were to commit suicide for forgiveness, he would still have to report to the Young Master first. Hei Mu slowly got up. Although his face was extremely unsightly, his steps were still firm as he left Luo Xia mountain.
Dibei Chen listened to Hei Mu’s report, the handsome smile on his face abruptly stiffening. His bright, clear eyes turned dark as if all of its light was engulfed by darkness, engulfed in a terrifying storm.
“You said…… Hongzhaung died in the Demonic Beast Tide?”
His handsome face had frozen over, the smile on his face cold and iniquitous. His eyes were locked on Hei Mu, an enormous, terrifying power pressing onto him.
The room trembled from the pressure, the atmosphere cold and dreadful.
And Dibei Chen’s face was even more frightful.
“Young Master, your servant is incompetent!”
Hei Mu kneeled with both knees. He had no excuse. In fact, just standing in front of Dibei Chen unharmed was already extremely shameful!
