Shangguan Wan was stunned and immediately retreated.
At the same time, she set up a barrier in front of her.
Perhaps it was because of that fireball, but the barrier she set up now was faintly glowing in a dark-green color.
That red fire harshly slammed against the barrier!
A loud whir sounded, and the barrier started to shake violently!
Shangguan Wans heart seemed to clench tightly as she half-collapsed on the ground.
She looked at the red fire that suddenly appeared in horror and anger, petrified that it would rush over at the next moment.
But luckily, the barrier was stronger than she had predicted.
After an intense fight, the red fire was still stopped.
The color of the barrier seemed to be slightly lighter, but Shangguan Wan didnt notice this at this point.
When she saw that the red fire couldnt break through the barrier at the very end and finally retreated, she sighed deeply. It seems like it was useful to swallow so much energy during this period.
But… Where exactly did that red fire come from
Shangguan Wan forced herself to stand up and took a step forward to stare at the fire closely. I seem to have seen this intensely bright-red fire before…
However, that ball of fire simply floated in midair quietly—it didnt move forward or backward.
This made Shangguan Wan have the feeling that someone was watching her, and her entire body was extremely uncomfortable.
She clenched her teeth and wanted to get rid of that fire.
But at this point, she had managed to avoid that attack with much difficulty.
If she suddenly went forward, something might really happen.
She wiped away the blood by her mouth, and some blood had stained the pure gold armor.
This fire… This fire… Oh right! Shangguan Wans eyes suddenly lit up! Isnt the fire that Chu Liuyue uses exactly this color Did Chu Liuyue do something
“I-impossible…” Shangguan Wan knitted her brows tightly again. Its problematic for Chu Liuyue to even save her own life, so how can she attack me like this!
She looked at the fire again, and her gaze suddenly focused. There seems to be a blurry figure inside that fire!
She stared at it closely and didnt even blink.
Suddenly, she gasped. There seems to be a Nine-Colored Heavenly Pheasant inside.
No, it still looks a little different from a Nine-Colored Heavenly Pheasant! And… its suppression is stronger!
Just when Shangguan Wan was filled with doubts, she suddenly saw the figure in the fire raise its head.
Then… it opened its eyes!
A brilliant rainbow light flashed across!
Shangguan Wans heart harshly skipped a beat.
She almost immediately reacted and directly rushed up! She turned her force into a sword and harshly thrust it out!
However, that ball of fire immediately exploded!
At that moment, it disappeared without a trace!
It is her! Chu Liuyue widened her eyes, and cold, murderous intent flashed across them. Even though I only took a glance, its enough for me to recognize that its Shangguan Wan.
However, she seems a little different from before.
Although her appearance and figure are still the same as before, her expression… still seems to be amiss.
Additionally, the black symbol on her glabella looks very strange.
Also, the most important point is that Shangguan Wan is actually wearing the pure gold armor!
Chu Liuyue pressed her lips against each other tightly, and there seemed to be a layer of frost on her face. I had unwittingly obtained the pure gold armor back then, and I cherished it a lot.
I didnt expect that Shangguan Wan would take it for herself!
“Liuyue, how is it Did you discover something” Mu Hongyus voice pulled Chu Liuyue back to reality.
The latter closed her eyes and looked up.
Her eyes were filled with clear calmness as she nodded.
“It seemed to be in the center of the soil, and theres someone there.
However, I cant see who it is.”
“Its already very amazing that you can find out all of this!” Mu Hongyu sighed.
Chu Liuyue smiled and patted Tuan Zi on her shoulders.
“Its all because of Tuan Zi.”
She finally convinced Tuan Zi to help her just now.
It was now a legendary fiend, and it had stayed here for more than a year.
Hence, it definitely understood this place much more than the rest of them.
As expected, with Tuan Zi just trying once, it directly found out Shangguan Wans position.
And because she made an agreement with Tuan Zi, they had a telepathic connection.
Hence, she could easilysee whatever Tuan Zi discovered.
Shangguan Wan was very alert.
To play safe, she didnt let Tuan Zi stay for too long, and they retreated after taking a glance.
She didnt leave behind any clues for Shangguan Wan.
Thinking of the contorted expression Shangguan Wan had when she suddenly recovered her senses, Chu Liuyue sneered in her heart. Shangguan Wan has committed so many bad deeds in the dark, so shes definitely guiltier than anyone else.
Thus, shed be terrified of getting discovered.
Even if she is the high and mighty Third Princess of the Tianling Dynasty, she definitely wouldnt be able to make it out alive if word gets out.
Using such despicable means to absorb other peoples force and steal their lives just to help herself recover her cultivation… Once her deeds are exposed, millions of people will be cursing at Shangguan Wan.
She will also receive the punishment of never being able to make a comeback.
Due to this, shes naturally afraid! At this point, Shangguan Wan should be panicking, right Thinking of this, Chu Liuyue suddenly felt much better.
She looked at Mu Qinghe.
“Lieutenant Mu, how are all the guards situations”
Mu Qinghe had just given the pills to the last batch of Black Guards.
Upon hearing this, he looked up at Chu Liuyue with a conflicted expression.
“Four of them cant make it anymore, and another 21 of them are severely injured.
The rest are still doing okay.”
Chu Liuyue scanned their faces. The situation was very dangerous just now, so this casualty report is already much better than expected.
This is also because the majority of the Black Guards that came had once stayed in Dahuang Swamp before.
If they were normal soldiers, the ending would be much worse.
Mu Qinghe paused for a moment and said, “Thank you.”
Chu Liuyue simply smiled.
“Didnt you already thank me just now, Lieutenant Mu Its the result of everyones efforts that we were able to save them.
Lieutenant Mu, you dont have to thank just me.”
Mu Qinghe pressed his lips against each other tightly.
Even though Chu Liuyue made it sound nonchalant, everyone present had seen what happened previously clearly.
Chu Liuyue was in charge of leading everyone.
If she didnt take action with the red-tailed phoenix and first cut down the roots that were intertwined together, the rest couldnt help even if they wanted to do so after so much.
Her actions were very swift and decisive, which stunned everyone.
They then understood that Chu Liuyue—who had broken through to become a stage-five warrior—was much stronger than they thought.
Chu Liuyue didnt take credit, but Mu Qinghe couldnt accept this gratitude with peace of mind.
The Black Guards meant a lot to him, and he was indeed grateful toward her for being able to save them.
“As the Black Guards lieutenant, you deserve this thanks.”
Chu Liuyue brushed the loose strands of hair behind her ears, smiled, and said, “Lieutenant Mu, you dont have to be polite.
I should do this.”
I naturally need to save my own people.
“We should hurry up to the center of the soil and apprehend the mastermind!”
