Xiao Yuan’s face gradually appeared before Gu Louyin’s unfocused eyes. Feeling the warmth of Xiao Yuan’s palm, he knew that he was saved.
Xiao Yuan wanted to say something, but his throat was so blocked that he couldn’t say a word. He was good at making sarcastic remarks, not at comforting people. Moreover, after seeing this memory, he didn’t think there was anything that could comfort Gu Louyin. Any words would be pale.
He felt that Gu Louyin didn’t need him to say anything.
Gu Louyin held his hand in one of his palms and put his other arm around his waist. In a gesture of dependence, he leaned over and hugged him. Feeling his frosty aura, Xiao Yuan reached out and wrapped his arms around Gu Louyin, hugging him back with all his might.
After a long while Gu Louyin took the initiative to end the hug and calmly said, “It’s time to clean up.”
Xiao Yuan asked anxiously, “Would you like to hug for a while more?”
Gu Louyin said, “I’ll hug you later.”
He had to admit that Gu Louyin’s reaction was much calmer than he expected. Whether it was Gu Hang’s two souls, Yuan Lu’s death or Lin Wulian’s true identity, all of this was really incredible. In other words, most people will definitely not be able to accept it for a while.
Xiao Yuan said, “Are you really okay?”
Gu Louyin said calmly: “Really okay.”
Xiao Yuan watched Gu Louyin walk forward and cast a hypnotic spell on ‘Gu Hang’ while he was not fully awake. There was nothing unusual in his expression and movements, as if ‘Gu Hang’ was just an irrelevant stranger.
Gu Louyin said, “Let’s go.”
Xiao Yuan and Shen Qianyan agreed that it was not the time for Xuanle Sect and Xingtian Sect to completely reveal their faces. If Xuanle Sect could regain Gu Hang’s trust, it would do them no harm. Now everyone in Yunjian Pavilion knew that Gu Louyin was in the hands of Xuanle Sect. They wanted to get out of the situation safely but they didn’t want Yunjian Pavilion to doubt Xuanle Sect, so they had to play tricks.
After midnight, Xu Chengfeng was sleeping well when he suddenly heard a noise. He opened his eyes abruptly and immediately raised his sword. He only saw that there was a mess outside, and the disciples of Xuanle Sect came and went in a hurry, with serious expressions, as if facing an enemy.
When they heard the movement, other disciples of Yunjian Pavilion also went out one after another to check the situation. “Xu Shixiong, what happened?!”
Xu Chengfeng shook his head, “Who knows what Xuanle Sect is doing.”
At this moment someone shouted: “Xingtian Sect is here to snatch the prisoner! Everyone who can, go and fight the enemy!”
The faces of Yunjian Pavilion disciples changed drastically when they heard this. “Gu Louyin really took refuge in a demonic sect!”
“Wait, where is Big Shixiong, why don’t I see him?”
“I can’t mind too much,” Xu Chengfeng said, “Before the masters come, we must not let the people of the demonic sect rescue Gu Louyin!”
When Xu Chengfeng and the others arrived, Xuanle Sect was fighting with Xingtian Sect. Shen Qianyan fought one against two, and the man and woman who fought her were not bad, at least at the level of the masters of Yunjian Pavilion. Shen Qianyan and her two opponents were even at the beginning, but it didn’t take long for her to fall into a disadvantage and be sprinkled with poisonous powder by the demonic female cultivator. The disciples of Xuanle Sect shouted: “Master–”
The disciples of Yunjian Pavilion were indifferent to it, they had only one goal – to take down Gu Louyin.
“Xu Shixiong, look at that! It’s Gu Louyin!”
In the mixture of yellow and black, Gu Louyin’s white clothes were particularly eye-catching. Xu Chengfeng said without hesitation: “Leave him to me!”
Xiao Yuan moved with Gu Louyin through the crowd. Seeing a disciple of Xuanle Sect and a disciple of Xingtian Sect in the middle of a desperate fight, he couldn’t help but say, “It’s just a show, no need to be so serious.”
Gu Louyin noticed someone approaching and shielded Xiao Yuan with one arm, “They are here.”
Xiao Yuan pushed Gu Louyin’s arm away and said, “Don’t forget, from Yunjian Pavilion’s point of view, you have been tortured half to death, and I should be standing in front of you to protect you.”
Gu Louyin said, “Okay, you are in the front.”
Xu Chengfeng rushed forward, saw Xiao Yuan, was startled and yelled angrily: “Xiao Yuan, it’s you again!”
Xiao Yuan waved his jade fan, like a dandy young master of a wealthy family. “Why? Can’t it be me?”
Xu Chengfeng said coldly: “Shameless dog man.”
Feeling the killing intent of Gu Louyin behind him, Xiao Yuan smiled and said, “You all said that we are a couple. One of us is in trouble, obviously the other would be here to rescue.”
Xu Chengfeng raised his voice, “Then that’s only if you have to have the ability to rescue him — formation!”
Gu Louyin said, “This formation is called Huanjian Formation. If you want to crack it, you first need to…”
Xiao Yuan perfunctorily said, “I got it, I got it”. He closed Bihai Chaosheng and flew forward.
Gu Louyin: “…” Fine, he was watching from the side, nothing would happen.
Xiao Yuan waved his jade fan in mid-air, his movement flowing. In an instant, a violent wind rose suddenly; full of murderous intent and surged towards Xu Chengfeng like a tide.
A group of Yunjian Pavilion disciples hurriedly blocked it, but they were forced to open their eyes by the invisible tidal wave, and their sword-wielding hands seemed to be pressed by huge stones, too heavy to lift.
Xu Chengfeng spit out a mouthful of blood and said bitterly: “You can only make waves with that artifact in your hand. Without the fan, what else do you have?!”
Xiao Yuan counted up on his fingers, “There is the best sword cultivator in the world, there is money, there is an elder brother who will give me countless artifacts, and…“ Xiao Yuan winced, “There is also my shidi who pops up from who knows where.”
Xu Chengfeng’s eyes suddenly widened; he slowly lowered his head and saw a large area of bright red. He didn’t know what happened at all. He only knew that his throat had been cut. And even though he knew it, he didn’t have time to think about anything and fell straight down.
Mu Yingyang appeared behind him, with a splash of blood on his valiant face. He wiped the blood stain away in disgust and said, “Shixiong, why are you talking nonsense with them?”
Mu Yingyang’s Duya was held in his left hand. Although his technique and speed during the attack was not as good as in the past, it was still more than enough to deal with Xu Chengfeng.
Xiao Yuan asked, “Why are you here?” He obviously asked Meng Chi and Li Yanzhi to bring people here and he also specifically told them not to disclose anything to Mu Yingyang.
Mu Yingyang demanded angrily, “Are you asking me, Shixiong?! You agreed to go to Lizhou with me! Shixiong, never mind that you lied, you even left without saying goodbye… Did you know how I spent the past five years?!”
“What five years? I’ve been gone for half a month.”
Mu Yingyang said with a stinky affectionate face: “One day apart from you seems like three years.”
Xiao Yuan: “…”
Gu Louyin suddenly said, “You arrived late.”
Xiao Yuan: “???” In any case, he missed his appointment with Mu Yingyang. It was indeed his fault, so he chose to coax Mu Yingyang first. “Xuanle Sect’s affairs are more important, it is not too late to go to Lizhou another day.”
While they were talking, the remaining disciples of Yunjian Pavilion finished crying over Xu Chengfeng’s corpse. Intent on revenge, they raised their swords and rushed forward with hideous expressions. Mu Yingyang sneered: “You are suicidal!”
Xiao Yuan watched Mu Yingyang take down a few more without any effort and couldn’t help but wonder if with all these people around, he would ever have a chance to kill someone with his own hands in this life.
Nearby, Shen Qianyan summoned her se Tianxiang, pretending to counterattack, and suddenly saw the blue light on the horizon that made the night sky look bright like day. Everyone looked up at the same time and saw a huge cyan dragon hovering in the air, its claws raised. In front of the cyan dragon, they all were as insignificant as flies, as tiny as a drop in the ocean.
Shen Qianyan’s eyes darkened and she murmured, “Is this Qingyan?”
Qingyan was here, and its master had to be here too. Xiao Yuan was a little depressed. Wasn’t it just a show acted out for the sake of Yunjian Pavilion? Why did everyone appear here one by one? Do they want such a big battle?
Shen Qianyan was the first to react. She was very fortunate that this was just a show. Her se resounded through the night, a signal of ceasefire.
She looked condescendingly at the only two remaining disciples of Yunjian Pavilion and said, “You have also seen it. If we continue to fight, Xuanle Sect will probably turn to ashes overnight.”
The disciples of Yunjian Pavilion had no other choice but to watch the people of Xingtian Sect take Gu Louyin away. Xuanle Sect had tried its best, and they didn’t even have a place to vent their anger.
While Xiao Yuan helped Xuanle Sect regain the trust of Yunjian Pavilion, he also let Xuanle Sect see the strength of their new allies. Everything went well – if you ignored the two extra people.
After retreating from Xuanle Sect, Xiao Yuan saw Xiao Du as expected. He was tired of saying the words “Why are you here?”
Xiao Du wrapped Qingyan’s ‘tail’ around his fingers and said with a smile: “I’ve come to take back my brother who ran away from home.”
