Chapter 108 – Life and death at stake (1)
Suddenly, a whoosh sound erupted as a meteor-like arrow flew towards Su Luo’s throat.
Qin Ning held a cruel sneer at the corners of her lips. Her eyes glowed with a vicious, malicious light as the bow in her hands continuously launched arrows nonstop. The whoosh, whoosh, whoosh sounds were endless as cold arrows flew out.
“Watch out!” Among the bodyguards protecting Su Luo, the black robed leader was the first to notice an anomaly in the air and loudly raised the alarm before heading in front of Su Luo to block the arrow.
When it came to weapons, Qin Ning’s expertise was in using the bow and arrow.
Her archery skills came from having been personally taught by the Archery God Elder Shou Wu. Vicious and bold, the archery technique was awe-inspiring. The strength displayed with the bow made it seem as if the wielder could launch a powerful arrow that would even pierce the sky!
If it was a direct confrontation, Qin Ning might lose. However, when it came to sniping using icy arrows, she definitely had cause to be proud.
Whoosh whoosh whoosh, nine stars shot in succession — nine arrows bursting with a sinister, lethal aura.
Ten black-robed men surrounded Su Luo, putting her in the center. Their weapons were deployed vigorously and their skillful movements were quick like the wind. They had enclosed Su Luo completely, their protection was flawless.
These people… … Su Luo’s eyes held a flash of doubt.
Looking at their battle formation, their priority clearly was to protect her, even if they had to sacrifice their own lives.
But why? Who would sacrifice these strong killers for her protection? Su Luo’s heart blazed with heavy suspicion.
Earlier, when the black-robed men had located Su Luo, they had released a burst of blue fireworks into the sky.
When the signal sounded, Nangong Liuyun was at the most crucial moment of his healing regimen yet he decisively forced himself to cease the process. Suddenly, Nangong Liuyun opened his eyes, revealing an expression of profound fondness in their depths.
Nangong Liuyun’s personal bodyguard Ling Feng stood nearby. With both hands holding his sword to his chest, Ling Feng was vigilantly observing their surroundings in a state of readiness.
Nangong Liuyun suddenly stood. His hawk-like eyes gazed sharply at Ling Feng and with eyes full of elation asked. “They’ve found her?”
Ling Feng worriedly looked at Nangong Liuyun. “Please rest easy, Your Highness. The eleventh group sent back the signal, stating that they have already found Miss Su and that she is safe and sound. She does not seem to be injured.”
Nangong Liuyun’s demonically magnificent lips that were as red as blood suddenly spread into a perfect smile — so incomparably alluring that it could charm all living things. Ling Feng could only look on as Nangong Liuyun laughed heartily: “Good! Very good! I knew that Luo girl would be fine…… *cough* *cough* *cough*……”
He loudly coughed then covered his chest, forcibly suppressing his roiling qi and blood before resolutely ordering. “Lead the way”
Ling Feng worriedly glanced at Nangong Liuyun’s wound and hesitatingly said. “Master, group eleven is currently escorting Miss Su here. Moreover, the remaining groups are on their way to meet up with group eleven. How about……”
Nangong Liuyun’s gaze turned malicious and blood-thirsty. His cold anger flared and a thick layer of ice encased Nangong Liuyun’s chiselled face. He dispassionately glared at Ling Feng. “Lead the way!”
“But……” Considering that his Highness had injured his internal organs by forcibly stopping the recovery process, he really should not be moving about. Besides, Miss Su has already been found and was on her way here… Ling Feng did not understand what the rush was.
Nangong Liuyun’s eyes exhibited a strong tyrannical air. From head to toe he was encased in a layer of frost that isolated him from the rest of the world.
He raised his sleeve. A critical palm strike lashed out and Ling Feng’s body abruptly flew backwards. By the time Ling Feng managed to come to a stop and crawl up to a kneeling position, a trail of fresh blood was flowing down from the corner of his mouth.
“Lead the way!” Nangong Liuyun’s body emitted an intense chill. Cold as ice, his entire person resembled a destructive, ruthless glacier.
Ling Feng covered the painful gash. He reluctantly but solemnly nodded before staggering up and heading forward, taking the lead.
