Chapter 196 – The final truth (1)
Page after page, written in black and white, was actually…
The Crown Prince saw the huge change in Su Zian’s expression, and a trace of doubt flashed through his eyes. He walked up a few steps and stood by Su Zian’s side, leaning in sideways to look.
However, Su Zian’s actions were like a bird startled by the twang of a bow. He rapidly sprang back with movements that were faster than lightning.
His Highness the Crown Prince was disgruntled!
The paranoid Crown Prince’s gave a glare full of dark maliciousness and displeasure at Su Zian. An angry resentfulness appeared in his heart.
This Su Zian was simply too brazen!
Su Luo was also staring somewhat inquisitively at the blue leather book in Su Zian’s hands. However, it was a pity that she was too far away from Su Zian’s position and was unable to clearly see the words written in the book.
Now, the only unperturbed person at the scene was none other than the Venerable Beichen.
His beautiful pair of liquid eyes burned with radiance. The corner of his eyes were slightly raised, carrying an expression that showed he had expected it, and with the appearance of watching a play.
However, he seem to dislike this play as not being wonderful enough, and one only saw him gave a meaningful glance at the black-clothed person by his side.
The black-clothed man understood and nodded his head. Afterwards, his body immediately disappeared from where it stood.
When his body reappeared, he was already only an arm’s length away from Su Zian.
The knife-like thin hands of the black-clothed person was quick as lightning, pinched straight towards Su Zian’s throat.
In Su Zian’s mind, the image of the Crown Prince’s imperial bodyguard being exterminated by the black-clothed man’s two fingers appeared. He subconsciously and instinctively sent a palm attack towards the black-clothed man.
However, the black-clothed man’s move was merely an empty maneuver. His intent was not to kill Su Zian, but rather to steal the blue leather book in his hand.
So, just when Su Zian counterattacked, he leaned sideways and avoided it. Two fingers like iron clamps hit Su Zian’s pulse, holding him in place.
Su Zian’s hand immediately lost all its strength, and the fingers holding the blue leather book became powerless as the book slid down.
Who knew what the black-clothed man was thinking, he single-handedly caught the blue leather book. It seemed like he had accidentally snapped the string that bound the blue leather book together. Naturally, apart from the instigator of this, Beichen Ying, and Su Luo who had paid close attention to the black-clothed man, nobody else noticed.
“Quickly return it to me!!!” Su Zian immediately became anxious!
The things inside that book absolutely must not be taken away by Beichen Ying. Otherwise, not only him, but also the entire Su Manor would die without a burial site!
The black-clothed man used his silence as answer, he quietly stood behind Beichen Ying. His entire body was enveloped in the shadows, unsympathetic, as if he didn’t exist.
Su Zian saw that his words were ineffective against him, he turned his head and glared at Beichen Ying with utter discontent: “Venerable Beichen! That is my Su family’s…secret martial arts manual! The secret manual can’t be passed on to others! It absolutely cannot end up in others’ hands. So please, you must return this book to me! Otherwise——”
“Otherwise what?” Beichen Ying had both hands crossed behind his back. With an arrogant manner of someone in a higher position, he slanted a glance at Su Zian. His expression was rather like that of a person who had made an exception for Su Zian.
“Otherwise….” Su Zian bit down on his back molars, his ashen-colored face was unswervingly determined. He was only seen coldly shouting out, word by word: “Otherwise, my Su Manor will certainly hunt all of you down and kill you all in the end!”
Before, Beichen Ying was so arrogant in not giving him face and Su Zian had still endured it all. However, now because of a very small book, he would go to war, inside this…there was something extremely fishy going on.
What was it that was written in that little blue leather book that could make Su Zian so worried to such a degree?
As for Su Zian’s claim of the so-called secret martial arts manual, no matter what, Su Luo wouldn’t believe it.
Now Su Luo was somewhat curious, what was really written in that little blue leather book?
When Beichen Ying heard what he said, he started to laugh uproariously. He was laughing so hard that he almost couldn’t breathe, with great difficulty, he finally restrained his laughter: “Hunt down and kill in the end? Ha, ha, ha, I’m so scared.”
Everyone could tell that Beichen Ying’s words were sarcastic.
