Chapter 162: Seeking death
It was night, just past 2 am. Chen Ning quietly left the Flowing Cloud Pavilion by herself, running right to the Peach Blossom Cove.
She had Xia He ask around already. These past few days, Chu Shao Yang had been living in the Peach Blossom Cove alone, not going to Chen Bi Yun’s Intoxicated Flower Pavilion at all. It should be because Chen Bi Yun had fallen into the manure pit and now he was just brooding by himself.
This was truly a heaven sent opportunity.
She did not allow anyone else to follow her.
The three maids did not know martial arts and bringing them along would just be binding her own hands, not helping her at all. They might even mess things up for her at the most crucial moment.
Especially that little girl Xiao Ru.
Of course she didn’t tell Xiao Ru about the purpose of her journey. If Xiao Ru knew, she would be so worried that she would follow closely behind her.
In order to hide herself, she had put on a set of night clothing and used a black towel to cover her face. The only thing being revealed was a pair of black and white eyes.
In her pockets, she had two red marked eggs, one on each side.
Hei, hei, Chu Shao Yang, I’ll let you try out my secret weapon. I’ll let you properly enjoy it!
She was very confident with her results.
She did not meet any trouble on the way and smoothly arrived at the Peach Blossom Cove.
This was because no one in the king’s palace would think that anyone would be daring enough to break into his highness’ forbidden place.
There was not a single guard around the Peach Blossom Cove.
They all knew how strong his highness’ martial arts was. With this high level martial arts, if there was anyone movement within a hundred meters, it would not be able to escape his highness’ ears.
If anyone dared to sneak into the Peach Blossom Cove, they would just be seeking death.
Unfortunately, even though the entire palace knew, only Chen Ning did not know this.
When she had sneaked into the Peach Blossom Cove, she was still thinking that she was very lucky.
In fact, the moment she had jumped over the Peach Blossom Cove’s door, Chu Shao Yang had already heard her from inside the room. His two slanted brows were raised.
He put down the sword he was cleaning and his lips curled into a cold smile.
There is actually someone that dares to sneak into his Peach Blossom Cove?
When he heard that person’s footsteps landing, he knew that person was not a martial arts master. Rather it was a complete rookie to the martial arts.
Actually they weren’t even a rookie.
Against this kind of person, there was no need to use his weapons. There wasn’t a need to tarnish his sword.
Chen Ning tiptoed closer to the elegant little building deep in the Peach Blossom Cove.
She could see from afar that there was a candle alit inside of the little building. It was very clear that Chu Shao Yang was living inside.
She was afraid of stepping on stones or leaves on the ground, so she was very careful with each step. Lifting her foot high up and gently stepping down, not making a single sound at all.
Step by step like this as she approached the little building in the peach blossom forest.
Chu Shao Yang floated out of the room and jumped atop a tall peach blossom tree, landing right above the tree.
The night wind blew his robe and the peach blossom leaves shook, but he just firmly stood there. His body did not move at all, showing that he had a high mastery of qinggong.
He looked down from above and saw Chen Ning on the ground.
When he saw the way Chen Ning was tiptoeing and walking carefully, he suddenly felt like this was very funny.
Where did this stupid thief come from!
With this low level qinggong, he still dares to sneak into his king’s palace. Was he paying the king’s palace’s guards for nothing?
A trace of fierce killing intent shined in his eyes.
Daring to sneak into the Peach Blossom Cove, death is your punishment!
He suddenly jumped out and his right palm was like a knife as it shot out at Chen Ning’s heart from behind.
At this moment, Chen Ning suddenly felt like she was in danger. The hair on the back of her neck stood up from the chill she felt.
